This is all Vela is good for. Scoring when the game is already dead and buried. Ship him off.


Cracking finish though eh?


@REDgood, maybe this is who we needed when we played Tottenham and Newcastle. Up by at least 2 goals and we lose the game. Why not have him who wants to come on the field and claim a spot and kill the game off with his movements?


He had a great debut when he got here and not enough starting XI to claim a spot. But in front of the goal he is amazing, just look at his World Cup campaign with Mexico, the friendlies before that, and the qualifying matches before that as well. While Bendtner’s father claiming interest from other clubs I suppose this could be a start for Vela to break through again. RVP, Walcott, Chamakh, and Vela. Something worth considering maybe?


Wow, look at Denilson go!! Almost remind me of how Barcelona plays with the passing and making himself available to keep the ball.
And look at Vela, so brilliant, it is just a shame Wenger would not give him a chance like he has done for Walcott when Walcott was playing shite for the best part of THREE years. And to imagine he scored two goals in the very next game and then was not given a run out the game after that, or was it even more games than that. Sigh!!


@REDgoon: By the way u do know Goal difference does count for something. And if this were the champions league away goals as well as goal difference would also count for something. Wish he came in the final 5 minutes against Barcelona at the Emirates and scored one when the game was done and dusted already.

he has never got the chances that Bendtner has , and is a much better finisher.


why did we let him go on loan at west brom? i mean, wenger does know the benefits from wilshere last year at bolton and how going to west brom affected jay simpson. vela wasnt used at all, going to bolton would have made better for him. elmander wasnt so good, klasnic feature very little, so imagine vela scoring every week LIKE DANI STURRIDGE DID!
however, vela should be kept for next season, used as winger or cf, he will prove his value


Bring him back Arsene! m sure he’ll be gud 4 us nex season!
