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.

vieira_16597tFrance’s coach Raymond Domenech conceded Patrick Vieira could well be playing for Arsenal this season. But he will have to play regularly at Arsenal to be assured of a starting place in the France side according to Domenech:

“Pat needs to play a lot to feel good and to get back to his best level.

“He has to keep playing. I hope he will start playing – at Arsenal or Inter Milan.”
