He would have fit straight into the system that Arsene love's to play. Pass and move. He would also provide goal's from the flanks that we have missed since Pires and Freddie left the club.
Wide midfield is an area we need to strengthen, and Ribery would have fit the bill. He can play either side and boy could we have used him this season!
It's believed that Wenger had the chance to bring him to the Emirates last summer. The reason's he didn't arrive vary.
The most popular being that his wage demands were too extreme and Wenger refused to break Arsenal's wage structure. This is understandable and knowing Wenger it's probably the most truthful.
The other main rumour was Thierry Henry leaving. Apparently Henry advised Ribery against the move because he was going AND Wengers own future at Arsenal was in doubt.
For whatever reasons he didn't sign for Arsenal I often wonder what might have been had he signed the dotted line at the Emirates?
He would have played a big part with the injuries that Rosicky has had and no doubt scored some vital goals from an area that we find goals hard to come by.
I suppose I should stop moaning about what might have been!
But I just cant help but wonder how good Ribery might have been wearing our shirt.
Keep it Goonerish......
