Great goal tonight. Not sure he is one of th greats



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

One of the more likeable Wenger signings. Another one who did more than his best and scored some absolute wonder goals.

What a way to bow out. Truly top drawer finish.

It could be argued that he's still better than what we have currently up top.

MAssive respect. always liked him. won germany's highest sporting award 3x. up there with beckenbauer vettel schumacher...

dont know the guy but always seemed like a class act despite not always getting the respect he deserved here. doesnt he still hold the highest goals per minute ratio in prem history?


and what a way to bow out. scores the winner... with an absolute screamer into the top corner. then gets subbed to a standing ovation and the gladiator music. then gets carried off the pitch after the game.

amazing

If he has stayed longer at Arsenal, he would have been 'Wengerised' such that we will not see such a long range goal.

Podolski might not have scored many goals for us, but most of the goals he did score were brilliant goals.

Definitely one of the most likeable Arsenal players.

Lukas Podolski is the perfect example of why Wenger's team doesn't win things. If a player can't fit in Wenger's team he's useless. Wenger doesn't play a game with player's strength, Claudio Ranieri a perfect example plays the game with what players he has. Jose Mourinho, plays his system with best strength of players he has. Alex Ferguson extracts the best of strengths from ordinary players in rigid system.
