Graham told the Sunday Mirror:
‘Maybe it’s not such a problem for Podolski, because he has been playing in Germany and that is similar to our football. He didn’t have a great European Championship, but he, for me, was played out of position, in a wide left role.
‘Giroud might find it harder, because French football is not so demanding.
‘But I have been hearing good things about their new Spanish player Santi Cazorla, so they could go well.’
However, despite Arsene Wenger adding more firepower to his squad this summer, Graham predicts the Gunners will not end the season as Premier League champions, insisting the title will remain in Manchester:
‘One way or another, the title will stay in Manchester.’
We are certainly not the favourites to be crowned Premier League champions, but I strongly believe that we will mount more of a challenge this season than the previous one.
It all depends how well our new signings adapt to the English game and our style of football.
Personally, I think Wenger has done some great business already this summer and it’s good to see he has done it before deadline day as the new faces can get used to the club’s ways and bond with their new team-mates early.
I, like Graham, don’t know what the season holds for Arsenal, it’s just too early to tell at this stage.
However, I do think we will produce a better one than we did last season and my gut feeling tells me that we WILL be lifting a piece of silverware as well.
