Theo & Giroud could be Arsenal’s Toshack & Keegan

It's been called 'the transfer window of discontent' with good reason, as Arsenal fans wondered why manager Arsene Wenger decided not to buy a single outfield player. Given that Arsenal have won the FA Cup two years running, it reminds me of the phrase: 'If it ain't broke, don't try to fix it'.

Although the title campaign has got off to a stuttering start, there is no need to push the panic button. I think there are enough goals in this Arsenal team without the addition of a Radamel Falcao type of signing.

If Olivier Giroud is not scoring, there is always the option of using Theo Walcott as a centre forward. However, he must have an extended run in the team playing in that position, or we'll never know if he will cut it there. When I say a run, I mean at least 5 starts: back to back. The mystery is why didn't that happen during the pre-season friendlies.

Another option is a 'little and large' attack with Giroud playing alongside Theo, reminiscent of Toshack and Keegan at Liverpool. I can't see Wenger opting for that, but it's food for thought and worth a gamble.
