OFFICIAL: Radamel Falcao Is The Player Most Gunners Want!

By on June 1, 2011

More than a week ago, I made a poll asking fellow Gooners, Who do you want Wenger to buy? I made some suggestions, players who have been constantly linked to the Gunners. The players and choices were: Scott Parker, Radamel Falcao, Giorgio Chiellini, Alou Diarra, Kevin Gamiero, Maarten Stekelenberg, Karim Benzema, Mamadou Sakho, Cristian Zapata, Balasz Dzudszak, Morgan Amalfitano, Other, Don’t care as long as Wenger buys, and No One. The poll allowed more than one answer.

Here are the results:

Scott Parker
125 (45%)
Radamel Falcao
164 (59%)
Giorgio Chiellini
63 (22%)
Alou Diarra
35 (12%)
Kevin Gamiero
47 (17%)
Maarten Stekelenburg
90 (32%)
Kevin Benzema
127 (46%)
Mamadou Sakho
128 (46%)
Cristian Zapata
26 (9%)
Balasz Dzudszak
23 (8%)
Morgan Amalfitano
20 (7%)
38 (13%)
Don’t care as long as Wenger buys
24 (8%)
No one
4 (1%)

The poll was answered by 274 fellow Gooners, with the clear winner being FC Porto star Radamel Falcao with 59%, Kevin Benzema and Mamadou Sakho were tied second at 46%, and Scott Parker at third place with 45%. Remember that this isn’t or doesn’t represent a majority of Gunners and doesn’t mean that most Gooners want Falcao, as some choices were left out as they are so many players linked to the Gunners at a constant basis.

Thank you to all who took the time to vote!

What do you think about the results? Is Falcao the player you want the most as a Gunner? Please share your thoughts and opinions.

    so the headline reads:
    OFFICIAL: Radamel Falcao Is The Player Most Gunners Want!

    then a line towards the end of the article reads:

    ”Remember that this isn’t or doesn’t represent a majority of Gunners and doesn’t mean that most Gooners want Falcao…”

    I suggest you go sort yourself out Mr. Omar

      The headline was talking about the 274 who voted.

      The poll left out other players that could have changed the results of the poll.

      I apologize for the confusion.

      Thanks and take care,

    wenger needs to splash the cash on falcao, the striker is what we need to partner RVP. Robin can then play deeper, be more effective and lay on the chances as well as scoring them.

    • Omar Almasri

      June 1, 2011 at 11:07 pm

      Well said and I agree, we need a top class striker someone who finishes clinically.

      Cheers and take care,

    • Omar Almasri

      June 1, 2011 at 11:10 pm

      Yeah me too, let’s hope he does bring in Falcao or any other top class striker.

      Cheers and take care,
