Former Arsenal boss George Graham is holding judgment on his old club.
Graham wants to see how quickly new signings Olivier Giroud and Lukas Podolski settle into English football.
"Maybe it's not such a problem for Podolski, because he has been playing in Germany and that is similar to our football," Graham told the Sunday Mirror. "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."
