After scoring four goals in a thrilling 4-3 Capital One cup win against Stoke City, League One Swindon Town have been tipped for the job of providing Arsenal with advice on how to score goals against Premier League opposition.
Arsenal are yet to score a goal in the Premier League this season, and with their strikeforce making more poor decisions than a man doing last-minute Christmas shopping, Arsene Wenger may turn to the Wiltshire club for some tips.
“Our attack is definitely missing something,” conceded Wenger.
“The main thing we are lacking is someone capable of getting the round bouncy thing into the netty area of the pitch.”
“Our strikers need to be less predictable and maybe a little harder to work out”
“At the moment the only thing that defenders are struggling to work out about Gervinho is where his hairline starts.”
Swindon worthy winners
Swindon outplayed Stoke for large periods of Tuesday’s game, and despite tries from Kenwyne Jones, Jon Walters and a conversion from Peter Crouch, they emerged worthy winners.
Stoke manager Tony Pulis revealed that he had no complaints about the result, but was keen to reiterate his desire to strengthen his squad due to a series of neck strain injuries that have weakened his midfield,
“Hopefully we can bring some new players in before the transfer window closes,” he said.
“I’ve got my eye on a fly-half and hopefully, with the help of the board, I’ll be able to make an offer.”
“We also need to be more aggressive in the scrum, so I’m looking to bring in a new tight-head prop.”
