They also got Ozil
whether he has lived up to his fee or not is another story but still Arsenal payed a lot for him
I thought I'd spare you by not mentioning that one. Seriously, though, I think Coquelin is a nice young player, but surely Arsenal need another holding mid. Maybe Wenger ventures out into the market to find a Flamini-type who can at least provide some additional cover.
As a Man City fan, I actually like Arsenal AND Spurs (!!!). I respect Wenger and his commitment to playing attacking football by passing and just generally keeping the ball on the carpet. With a top-flight finisher in addition to Giroud, who given his transfer fee, has been a success, I think Arsenal could take a huge leap forward. Don't rate Benzema generally, but even I would have to admit that he might score 30 goals for them if he avoided injuries.
Ozil created the most chances for the team, that's after coming off an injury. I think Ozil is just fine as it is. He needs someone who can finish the chances he creates, and by God, please make it someone who's better than Olivier Giroud. He also covered the most ground, so don't be fooled by that laid back style of game he has, he's very impactful in the pitch. (well, except against West Ham last week of course)
As for Coquelin, his tandem with Santi Cazorla last year worked wonders. Here's hoping AW just goes back to that instead of insisting that Aaron Ramsey would be better (man I'm so sick of Ramsey). Surely we need another DM, here's hoping the rumored Krychowiak deal would come to fruition. Never saw the dude play, but from what I've read, he's good quality.
And don't worry, in the next week or two, we'll have Karim Benzema too. (one could hope)
