    Come on Wenger, we all know that our major team problem is shipping in goals. You seem to be obsessed at present with collecting goal scorers. Kos, Our best centre back, is suspect because of his perpetual injury. We desparatey need a quality defender so don’t mess about. Get this man now, and don’t bid a measly 20 million for him.
