Arsenal fans have not afraid to publicly scorn Arsene Wenger in the build up to deadline day and it appears the signing of Danny Welbeck has done little to placate many.
No doubt the £16 million tag slapped on Welbeck is partially to blame and rightly so - £16 million for Welbeck is steep, especially when the likes of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Wilfried Bony could have joined for similar figures. Nonetheless, fans of the Gunners would be wrong to dismiss Welbeck.
For starters, Welbeck has many of the key attributes Arsenal fans have been screaming out for: pace, strength and an enthusiasm for working hard.
With this alone, Arsenal's front line has been transformed from one of the slowest in the league, to one of the fastest and hard working. No doubt this should give the likes of Santi Cazorla and Mesut Ozil oodles of options to slide in a through ball for the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Alexis Sanchez and Welbeck running through on goal.
Alongside with Manchester United, Arsenal were famed for the versatility of their attack; from slicing teams open with precise team play to individual runs and 10 second one touch breaks from one end to another.
Somewhere down the line Arsenal became one dimensional, but with Manchester City and especially Liverpool bringing back popularity with playing two men up front, pressuring from the front and having an attack loaded with pace, it is nice to see Wenger acknowledging his side needs to slightly adapt whilst still staying true to his main footballing principles.
Welbeck brings a lot but the one thing Arsenal need the most is the one thing Welbeck has been slated for the most for lacking - goals.
In 166 games for Manchester United, Welbeck scored just 34 goals; in 100 Premier League games for Man Utd, Welbeck scored 21 goals; the most Welbeck has ever scored in Premier League season is 9, which he has done twice.
Being prolific clearly isn't in Welbeck's forte but it is certainly something he and Arsenal have the tools to help him improve in.
Welbeck's goalscoring record is hampered by the fact he was never been a first team regular for Man Utd, plus when he did play, it was often on the right wing focusing more on his defensive duties than offensive.
As per WhoScored, Welbeck's problem is not being clinical, it is not being in the right place to score consistently enough. Last season he tallied 9 goals from just 1.8 shots per game.
To put that into perspective, last season Robin van Persie scored 12 goals from 3 shots per game; in Rooney's two lowest goalscoring seasons in recent years, the England and United captain totalled 12 goals from 3.2 shots per game in the 12/13 season and 11 goals from 3.5 shots in the 10/11 season.
This is not to suggest Welbeck is on the same level as the aforementioned, he has a long way to go before he can even be mentioned in same breath.
As Sylvain Wiltord, Jose Antonio Reyes, Theo Walcott and Lukas Podolski will attest to, it is sometimes easy to score from the wing than when playing up front, due to the different pressures of leading the line.
However, Welbeck has the raw tools to succeed, he just needs the platform to do so.
