So Wenger has admitted he will think about signing Patrick Vieira. Some fans will say he is exactly what we need. A holding midfielder who is a strong leader as well. And as he is a legend of this club so most fans would love to have him back too. He could also help in the development of Song and Denilson into the sort of holding midfielders we hope they will one day turn into.

But then he is 33 now. And his recent years have been plagued with injuries. So some would say he can’t play week in week out and even when he does he won’t be able to complete 90 minutes easily.

So the question is how many fans are from the first category and how many from the second; and how many are least bothered about whether he joins or not.
