Thanks to the International games, there’s little to report bar the Arsenal players that are on duty for their respective clubs. Robin Van Persie was rested as requested by Arsene Wenger while Theo Walcott saw 57 minutes of action at Wembley against Sweden as the three lions won 1-0. Mertesacker came on for Germany in their 3-0 win over a Dutch side shorn of Van Persie and Van Der Vaart. For a full report on the players on duty, check the official website.
The best forward at Arsenal Maroune ‘better than everybody’ Chamakh has reportedly been ignoring all the overtures of his former club Bordeaux as they try to bring him back to the club, but his love for Arsenal and the manager and his place in the hearts of the Arsenal faithful wont let him leave us. Great, now all he needs is to make Robin Van Persie act the same way and sign a new contract. Bordeaux president said he’s left over 4 messages for both the player and AW but it seems their BIS(Blackberry Internet Service) is out so they did not get any message. Liar Liar Jean Louis Triaud
The young English-Finnish defender says he cant wrap his head around his meteoric rise, from playing Blue Square football to getting sent off against Man United and making his champions league bow infront of the team he has supported all his life. What a lad. i personally like him and he’s gone from strength to strength since his arrival, and if he keeps crossing the ball the way he does, he might have a Fabregas season from the back.
The young Costa-Rican forward netted what many are calling a henry-esque goal against the world champions Spain yesterday. he was also reported to have been a thorn in Puyol’s side the entire night. He’s going to be an amazing player for us once he’s legible. You can watch the goal here
Just a quick one, word coming out of France is AW is ready to take a gamble on Yoan Gourcuff who could be available for about 8M to beef up the midfield. Other sources mostly by Martin Lipton of Daily Mirror says despite the rumors of Marco Reus, Goetze is still AW’s number one transfer target and doesn’t mind the hefty fee on him. remember he almost joined in the summer so i won’t completely rule it out.
Looks like we wont be getting a defender as we have more than enough bodies there, a midfielder looks a certainty then two attackers to help cover for the loss of Gervinho and Chamakh who leave in January for the ACN. Goetze and Podolski? or who would you rather have? Let us know in the comments. Do have a lovely day.
