Arsenal fans were left fuming on transfer deadline day when they saw Manchester United land Radamel Falcao, Arsene Wenger jet off to Rome and Danny Welbeck join the club.
Oh, how times have changed. Now after Welbeck’s hat-trick in the Champions League, Gooners everywhere are professing their love for the forward who only cost them £16 million and some even think they have a world class player on their hands.
Now before anyone gets any ideas about Manchester City or indeed Barcelona coming in for another Arsenal player, we can safely say that will not be the case when it comes to England international Welbeck – but he has every right to be mightily impressed with himself tonight.
Wenger can also thank his lucky stars that he was out of the country on deadline day – because as we know, if the Arsenal boss had been here, he would not have signed Welbeck, who is now a firm favourite at the north London club.
So much so that some clever Gooner has mocked this up – well either that or predicted the future!
Welbeck and the Ballon d’Or? Well given Frank Lampard now scores AGAINST Chelsea and Cesc Fabregas pats their badge, stranger things have happened we suppose.
Arsenal fans. Just how many goals can your new super forward score? Is the sky the limit for Welbeck? Let us know your thoughts below or tweet us @LaFootyettes.
