Maybe I am clutching at straws here. Or maybe I have completely lost the plot in more ways than one.
But I am really hoping that Marouane Chamakh will come back to Arsenal, after the African Cup of Nations, a completely rejuvenated player.
Fingers crossed, hopefully he might even come back as Lukas Podolski.
Who knows though? A change of scenery might do the Moroccan the world of good. A couple of goals definitely would.
It's fair to say that Chamakh has had a bit of annus horribilis.
2011 hasn't been the greatest time for him. In fact, I've even seen it mooted that he is the worst striker to have ever worn the Arsenal shirt.
Now I wouldn't go that far. Clive Allen gets that honour for me. At least Chamakh's early form lasted longer than a pre-season. Just.
The question is can Marouane turn his Arsenal career round?
I'd like to see it because in his early days with the club he looked quite good. And that is not just his slick hair looking good either.
He was an asset to the team and I could see why Arsene Wenger wanted to sign him.
Then came along 2011 and the next thing you know, he not only looked like a giraffe, but began to resemble how one would play on a football pitch.
It looks like the striker will be at the club until the summer at least. Wenger never gives up on his players easily.
So I am hoping, wishing, that Morocco have a great tournament and that Chamakh comes back to North London completely full of confidence.
It could be like signing a new player.....
