Son of a Gun!

Musings on Arsenal Football Club by a Singaporean Gooner (Gooner since 1988)

Poll Results July 6, 2009

Filed under: SOG Polls — Son of a Gunner @ 9:43 am

I have planned to host all the poll results of the week’s posts on every Sunday but I was simply too busy yesterday so I’m posting 2 posts today instead.

First poll: Who should partner Thomas Vermaelen in central defence next season?
Kolo Toure 46%
William Gallas 31%
Johan Djourou 15%
Philippe Senderos 8%
Mikael Silvestre 0%
Another new Signing 0%

Results of the above poll is interesting as it seems most think we already have someone to partner Vermaelen and need not sign another defender, and also Silvestre should go. It also shows Toure remains in the hearts of most Gooners and that is good to see.

Second poll: Which of the following midfield enforcers should Arsenal sign?
Felipe Melo 43%
Lorik Can 21%
Another player 14%
Yaya Toure 7%
Miguel Veloso 7%
Promote from within 7%

It seems the results have shown most are impressed with Melo and hope he can join Arsenal. I have written in my previous post that he has signed a contract extension and is unlikely to join us but things have taken another twist. I will elaborate more in my next post.

Third Poll: Who among the new transfer rumours are true to you?
None of the above, we know they are bullsh*t 57%
Karim Benzema 29%
Serdar Tasci 14%
Franck Ribery 0%

So far, the majority of the poll-takers are correct. Benzema has moved to Real Madrid as their latest Galactico and Ribery is on the verge of being the next one to join him. And there has been no more news on Tasci, as expected.

Fourth poll: Do you think Adebayor should leave Arsenal?
Yes, for the right price 100%
Yes, he is not good enough 0%
No, we need his services 0%

A very clear-cut case of Gooners wanting him out, for the right price of course. And perfectly understandable.

Fifth poll: Will you buy the new away and third Arsenal kit?
No, I will not buy either! 75%
Yes, I will buy the 3rd jersey 25%
Yes, I will buy the blue away kit 0%
yes, I will buy both! 0%

Most won’t buy either jerseys, which I must admit I’m not surprised because they really aren’t Arsenal’s most attractive away kits. But I’m really surprised someone might really get the 3rd white kit!

Sixth poll: Should Arsenal sign Lorik Cana?
Yes, we need him! 67%
No, we deserve better. 33%

Still seems there are more who wants to see Lorik ‘the Beast’ Cana at Arsenal than not. Although the opinion is still pretty split on this one. However, I do feel Wenger is not looking at him.

Seventh poll: Should we sign Marouane Chamakh?
No, we need someone else! 100%
Yes, he will be brilliant for us! 0%

Quite clearly, most are not impressed with Marouane Chamakh but this remains the most likely next signing.

Thanks to all who have taken the polls that comes with every post. Please continue to make yourself heard in the week ahead!
