Today I've read, and I can read, that Dennis Bergkamp has claimed Arsene Wenger wants him back at Arsenal. Not in a playing sense as the experienced striker we all want, that would be silly, but to join the coaching set-up.
What are you waiting for Dennis??!!
Of course Dennis Bergkamp is currently at Ajax, as the youth team coach. Ajax, like Arsenal, will always have a big place in Bergkamp's heart and the Ajax fans may love the Dutchman but I doubt that they love him like we Gooners do!
That's why I'm calling for 'God' to come back home now. Imagine the impact that bringing the Ice-Man back into the fold would have at the club? Not only would it raise the players but it would raise us Gooners too.
Over at Le Grove the guys talk about the impact the likes of Arshavin and Vermaelen have made with Arsenal. I totally agree. Of course as players they have an influence on and off the field but imagine the influence of someone like Dennis Bergkamp on this squad. The man has been there, done that and done it some more.
An Arsenal legend, if these players couldn't learn from him then who could they possibly learn from?
A change behind the scenes may do Arsenal some good too. It's been pretty much the same set-up for a while now and the arrival of someone like Dennis Bergkamp would freshen things up a little.
Bergkamp has said that he and Arsene Wenger share the same vision, that's great because we Gooners have become accustomed to a very familiar type of football nowadays. What Bergkamp will bring is different ideas and that will only benefit our boys.
Ajax churn out player after player of quality who play football the right way. Arsenal do too. The next step up for Bergkamp at this stage of his career would be to join Arsenal sooner rather than later.
It makes sense. Come home 'God!'
Keep it Goonerish................
