I would have genuinely taken Arsenal to be serious title contenders in years, if you had signed atleast one of the above mentioned names.
And now Welbeck out for the season (I'll take the reported several months out to mean that).
Can I add Son, Berahino, Higuain, Hulk, Austin, Okazaki to the list (more as a comprehensive list of available strikers to add to UP's for future reference - he's made quite a good list just wanted to add a couple I could think of).
