After the transfer deadline in September I boldly posted on this blog that Falcao will flop at Manchester United, and Welbeck will be a success at Arsenal. What followed was a lot of abusive comments – those in the United camp taking the piss, telling me that I was having a laugh, and those in the Arsenal camp who lambasted Arsene Wenger for signing a Manchester United reject and missing out on the Columbian striker.
Well in the end the United fans were right, I am having a laugh, a laugh at them!
As it stands, Danny Welbeck has proved to be a major asset to Arsenal, scoring some important goals and despite having competition from Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez, he’s managed to score 7 goals, including 3 in Europe in 4 games.
Radamel Falcao on the other hand has scored 3 goals.
A “world class” striker, who was coveted by the biggest teams in world football, has scored 3 goals this season.
Please wait a moment while I go into the corner and piss my pants.
I made the point that Falcao will struggle with injuries and that has proven to be the case. The guy had 3 major surgeries in his career and Arsene Wenger knows all this. Yes, on his day he is a very special player but Arsene knows more about him that we ever will and that’s why he went for Welbeck, who is a far better investment and someone who can give us something in the long term. Falcao is a mercenary, plain and simple.
Well there’s a surprise…
Anyway, let me leave you with a joke tweet I posted and which was retweeted over two thousand times by gullible United fans:
