Arsene Wenger took a chance on starting Samir Nasri today in the FA Cup match against Huddersfield,
but it backfired and now Nasri is guaranteed to miss the next two weeks (or maybe three..). Wenger
admitted that the plan was to play Rosicky from the start, but he changed his mind with the
uncertainty over the [.
Arsenal cult hero, Emmanuel Eboue, generally sees very little football now. In the past when he has
been placed on the bench he has got nervous and speculation of moves to Italy is not all thatÂ
unfamiliar. However, Manu who is very popular amongst players just wants to win trophies with
Arsenal: "I have this [.
Nicklas Bendtner has been all over the newspapers more than a puppy with a bladder problem this
season most of it being linked to his future. Bendtner was tapped up by Bayern Munich earlier on in
the season and had his head turned. That is a well reported fact. However, he has since pledged to
The news broke yesterday in all the Arsenal Blogs that Carlos Vela was set to follow in the
footsteps of Jack Wilshere by spending the second half of the season playing at Bolton under Owen
Coyle, but, despite an agreement in place and ready to sign, Vela eventually ended up signing for
West Brom. Well today [.
Arsenal confirmed the news that Carlos Vela will join West Brom on loan for the rest of the season.
It has been a strange few months for the Mexican. He had a bright start to the season but quickly
found himself frozen out with Chamakh bang in form, Bendtner returning from injury and Samir Nasri
ArsÃ¨ne Wenger is in agreement with Fabio Capello about giving Wiltshire a special role in the
England team. The Italian manager wants to give the young Arsenal midfielder the anchorman role
when England next play, against Denmark on February 9th. Speaking about Wilshire, ArsÃ¨ne said: "He
can play any position in midfield because he is tactically [.
The manager has given the misfiring Andrey Arshavin his full support after he has come in for a lot
of criticism in recent weeks. AA23 is the kind of player who doesn't inspire the fans with his
work-rate, instead relying on bursts of genius to win them over. For the entire time he has been
The England manager Fabio Capello has confirmed that the two Arsenal youngsters, Jack Wilshere and
Theo Walcott will be starting in this Wednesday's friendly game against Hungary, and he heaped
fulsome praise on Arsene Wenger and his legion of young players. Capello said that Wilshere will be
playing as the main attacking playmaker, in what used [.
The Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Manuel Almunia has returned to the Arsenal squad
after a prolonged absence through injury, but he will not automatically return as first choice in
the Gunners squad. "He has been injured for a long time and in a situation like that you feel
jobless," Wenger said.
Manuel Almunia is set to make a devastating return to the Arsenal squad as, apparently, the current
keepers are not making enough mistakes. I joke of course, but it is true, he may well be in the
squad to face Huddersfield at the weekend after shaking off injuries to his face, head and ribcage
after beatings [.
Today Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood spoke about how fans these days are very lucky, and how he
has been asked to spend money in a less than politeÂ fashion. He cites Arsenal's split ownership
through shares as a big positive because "If some bloody Russian wants to buy the place and
everyone else wants to sell, then, [.
It was widely held at the beginning of the transfer window that Arsene Wenger needed to get in some
cover at centre-back due to the long-term injury to Thomas Vermaelen, which was no closer to
getting fixed at Christmas. Wenger duely announced that if the prognosis was not good for Vermaelen
then Arsenal would definitely [.
The little Russian genius has seemed very out-of-sorts this season, and has been roundly criticed
by the Arsenal fans. Arsene Wenger has relegated him to his second string side, and despite the
occasional spark of his old form, he has looked listless and uninterested. Arshavin himself has
tried to explain the problem, but he is not [.
Jack Wilshere has issued a rallying cry to the Arsenal team: Lets go and win a trophy, and then
lets win more! TheÂ prodigiousÂ talent says that winning the Carling Cup could spur this side onto
great things, giving them the added belief that they can achieve something very special indeed:
"Winning trophies breeds confidence and, if we get [.
Carlos Vela is a player whoÂ dividesÂ opinion. He has undoubted quality but just doesn't seem to
take his chances when he is in the first team. His party-boy lifestyle probably has something to do
with it, he is a young lad who wants to have fun but at the moment it looks like it is affecting
It is ok, I forgive you for laying in and waiting until later than usual for your transfer news
update from Just Arsenal after watching the team reach the Carling Cup Final last night. That win
last night was rather nice wasn't it! Sadly it seems that recent performances (and clean sheets!!)
have persuaded the [.
The Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna suffered a bad case of concussion when he crashed into Wojciech
Szczesny during the Carling Cup match against Ipswich at the Emirates yesterday. Arsene Wenger said
after the game: "Sagna had a concussion," "He has to go to hospital, he was sick after the game. He
has pain at his nose [.
An eyewitness account of Jack Wilshere - Jack was absolutely unbelievable last night. He is strong,
quick, powerful and accurate in his passing. Long ranging passes are just as easy as simple passes
to his other team-mates, great players make the game look easy and Jack at times makes it look like
a walk in the [.
I have just received this Guest Post from Malawi, and I don't think that Arsene Wenger understands
how much his smallest decision affects people all over the world. This post may help us all to
understand just that little bit more..... WHY WE NEED A CENTRE BACK by Dalitso Kuphanga, Lilongwe
Malawi I write from a small country [.
It seems that the Arsenal striker Carlos Vela has won his argument with Arsene Wenger over the
destination for his six-month loan. The Gunners boss wanted Vela to join another club in the
Premiership so he easily monitor his development like he did with Jack Wilshere at Bolton last
season, and it was expected that [.
There have been some absolutely crazy Arsenal transfer rumours since Arsene Wenger announced he was
in the market for a new centre-back, ranging from Â£20m (no chance!) for Gary Cahill, to bringing
in Jonathon Woodgate from Spurs, even though he has played just 45 minutes of a practise game in
the last 14 months.
Over the weekend the tabloid 'News of the World" ran a back-page spread linking Arsenal with a move
for Tottenham's walking injury namedÂ Jonathan Woodgate. Arsene Wenger was a keen admirer of the
player during his Leeds and Newcastle days but couldn't stump up the cash when he went to Real
JustArsenal can reveal the squad to face Ipswich later tonight is: Szczesny, Shea,Â Koscielny,
Gibbs, Miquel, Song, Sagna, Djourou, Eboue, Clichy, Arshavin, Denilson, Wilshere, Bendtner, van
Persie, Fabregas, Nasri, Walcott, Chamakh. A strong squad has been named to face Ipswich tonight
with Miguel named as defensive cover and James Shea once again taking his place up on the [.
It has been a while since we had any Guest Posts, but here is one from Ahmed, who is worried about
the development of two Arsenal players that are just outside the first team......... While it is
much publicized that the Gunners need some experience at the back I wanted to address an experience
issue in [.
Arsene Wenger took the strange step ofÂ publiclyÂ announcing his interest in Alex
Oxlaide-Chamberlain yesterday. It isn't very common that Wenger to take such a move but afterÂ
revelationsÂ claiming that Chamberlain has decided that Arsenal will be his destination the boss
said: "I think, if that is right, that is a very good decision, we will try now.
We all know that there are a multitude of reasons that Arsene Wenger does not sign many English
players, in fact you could probably count them all on one hand! One of the main reasons for this is
the price, or the price for the quality of player you would be getting in return for [...]
I nearly actually spluttered my cornflakes all over the screen this morning when I can across the
most ridiculous Arsenal rumour ever invented. Of course it's from the News of the World... The
story goes that Andrei Arshavin is very unhappy at Arsenal, and his form has dropped even further
since he has been relegated to [.
De-ja-vu? One name just won't go away and that is the name of Bolton's wantedÂ centre-back Gary
Cahill. There are claims today that Bolton have told Arsenal to make a bid for the defender this
month to ease their well documented financial problems. I don't actually believe these reports but
they are worth writing about just to [.
Rumours have been flying around the last 48 hours that Nicklas Bendtner will leave Arsenal with
Sunderland being named as one possible destination. Skybet even slashed the odds of him heading to
the Stadium of Light. However, comments made by his father a few days ago suggest different with
him insisting that Bendtner is happy at [.
Arsenal comfortably beat Wigan today, and it looked to me that this was the best team he could
pick. The changes from the Leeds game were possibly obvious, but as far as i was concerned were
spot on. Van Persie came in for Chamakh. Andrey Arshavin, Denilson and Nicklas Bendtner were
dropped in favour of Theo [.
The rumour-mill may keep turning and turning but the Arsenal FC Chequebook is staying firmly under
lock and key by the look of it. The only real Arsenal transfer news is about players leaving on
loan, though The Goon Blog ran a story about Eden Hazard provisionally agreeing terms to join the
club, with just [.
According to Arsene Wenger, Andrey Arshavin has been suffering from a 'blip' in form but will be
back to his best sooner rather than later. Indeed, the boss reckons he is already on his way back
but just lacking in confidence. Despite his torrid form he has stillÂ contributedÂ a lot to the
team this season with seven [.
The physical wounds inflicted by Ryan Shawcross have healed for Aaron Ramsey, he is probably in the
best physical shape of his life but there is now just one thing missing that that is his form.
There is only one way of re-finding that: game time. He is not going to get that at Arsenal. He has
Arsenal take on Wigan tomorrow and the Gunners will not be happy that they dropped points in the
first League meeting this season. Andrei Arshavin is expecting a massacre (but I doubt he will be
playing!) but I'm not so sure. Wenger will be praying that he doesn't get any more defensive
injuries, and Arshavin, Bendtner [.
Jay Emmanuel-Thomas has finally got the loan move that he desired, only it wasn't to a Premier
League club after all, it was to Championship side Cardiff. I am not sure if this is a good move or
not for Jay, the club were very keen on sending him on loan to a Premiership side but [...]
The fine win over Leeds United was soured only slightly by the news that Chamakh and Denilson have
suffered slight injuries during the game, both players are not really expected to start against
Wigan on Saturday and are likely to be fit anyway, according to Arsene Wenger. Robin van Persie and
Jack Wilshere are likely [.
The Arsenal transfer rumours are still coming in thick and fast, although there doesn't seem to be
much solid action from Arsene Wenger. The only real possibility is he arrival of a centre-back and,
according to the Metro, Bolton's Gary Cahill is still the number one target. Now that David Wheater
has made his move [.
The little Russian forward Andrei Arshavin has not looked like his heart is at Arsenal for some
time now, and he is rarely given a start by Wenger except in the underperforming Gunners
"second-string" games. Considering that just two years ago he was considered the biggest star in
Russia (never mind Zenit!
The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has seen his defensive injuries get steadily worse as Sebastien
Squillaci has joined the relapsing Thomas Vermaelen on the treatment table. That has left Wenger
with just two centre-backs, and one of them, Johann Djourou, has an ongoing knee problem that
Wenger thinks shouldn't be risked playing more than one game [.
With just ten days left of the window remaining there is still a steady stream of Arsenal transfer
rumours arriving every day. Most of the papers seem to think that Wenger's main defensive target is
the Blackburn centre-back Christopher Samba, but there is little evidence to back up the story. In
fact yesterday Samba himself [.
Ten days ago Theo Walcott made the unusual decision to admit to diving to try and win a penalty,
mass debate ensued about whether he did the right thing and was honest, or stupid for blackening
his own name with fans fearing the next time he was toppled in the area he wouldn't get the [...]
Arsene Wenger has only had three centre-backs at Arsenal since Thomas Vermaelen got injured in
September, and that has been reduced to two now that Sebastien Squillaci has suffered a hamstring
injury. Of the two remaining Johann Djourou has only come back from a year-long injury himself and
Wenger admitted just a few weeks ago [.
Tonight Arsenal travel to Elland Road for the FA Cup replay against Leeds, and it is a reminder
that the Gunners didn't dispose of the Championship team in the first leg because Denilson gave
away a sloppy penalty and allowed the Yorkshire team to take the lead. Arsenal's captain Cesc
Fabregas appeared to be very angry [.
We have a couple of new interesting Arsenal transfer rumours arriving today, and they all seem to
be quite possible for a change! Owen Coyle said yesterday that he had not received any bid from
Arsene Wenger for the big Bolton defender Gary Cahill and other than Christopher Samba, it was
thought that there were no [.
After netting his tenth goal of what is becoming a very good season for Theo Walcott, he spoke
about just how good the Arsenal goal-scorers are, claiming we have the 'strongest' front-line in
the Premier League. Walcott has already surpassed his own goal target for the entire season in just
It is now even more urgent that Arsenal get a new centre-back this month now that it has been
revealed that Thomas Vermaelen requires surgery on his achilles problem, but has Arsene Wenger
actually made any moves to try and get anyone in? The most touted names to move to the Emirates at
the beginning of [.
The Arsenal winger Sanchez Watt was given special dispensation by Arsene Wenger to play against
Arsenal in the FA Cup match last week, and after the last-minute equalizer by Fabregas is now
looking forward to the replay at Elland Road. He believes that his new team can beat Arsenal this
week, but he says that he [.
It is still largely quiet in the media surrounding Arsenal's transfer targets, the only news
available is about Jay Emmanuel-Thomas. Preston North End are the club interested but I don't
believe he will go there for a second, there are a variety of reasons and I will take you through
them: Wages: Emmanuel-Thomas had the option [.
Arsenal's best center back will undergo surgery this week on his achilles problem that has kept him
out of a lot of football this season. Vermaelen is a massive part of Arsene's defending plans and
his loss has been significant as the defence have shipped their fair share of goals this season,
exposing Premier League [.
Something has caught my eye over the last few weeks. In the Cup competitions Arsene hasn't seemed
that bothered by defeats and seems determined to put all his resources into the Premier League
campaign. Yes, we have fielded slightly stronger teams in the Carling Cup this season but there
have still been a lot of [.
It has just been reported in today's Star that the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has finally made an
agreement with Southampton to bring Alex Oxlade-ÂChamberlain to the Emirates, beating off interest
from Liverpool and Chelsea. It seems that Arsenal have agreed to pay Â£5m up front, with another
Â£5m to be gained as the youngster [.
Arsene Wenger was more than happy with the composed way his team disposed of West Ham yesterday,
and despite the two disappointing Cup games in the last two games, feels that the Gunners are on a
great run in the Premier League. Wenger said: "It became pretty comprehensive. We had a good,
mature performance today.
It is suspiciously quiet around Arsenal regarding transfers at the moment, there have been the
mutterings of Gary Cahill, Matthew Upson, Per Mertesacker, Samba and a few other names that nobody
has ever heard of, however, the Daily Mail are reporting that we are not willing to stump up the
cash for Gary Cahill: According to [.
The newest Arsenal youngster to come through the ranks to be a star at the Emirates is our very own
Jack Wilshere, but he admitted today that he grew up as a West Ham fan and his boyhood hero was the
great Italian Paolo Di Canio. He said: "My family have always been West Ham fans, [...]
It looks like Arsene Wenger has left it a little late again in the transfer market, as it is being
reported today that the Aston Villa boss Gerrard Houllier is close to signing Emir Spahic from
Montpellier for Â£5million. The big Bosnian international made it clear last week that he would
love to join Arsenal after [.
The boss was at pains to point out that nobody will be leaving the club in the January transfer
window in his press conference yesterday. He was asked a range of questions on a range of players,
the first one was about Aaron Ramsey's short-term future and the question of him going out on loan
Today Arsene Wenger held his pre-match press conference and he discussed the possibility of signing
a defender, the future of useless keeper Almunia and the future of Andrey Arshavin. We all know I
want a new defender, a proper defender and no quick-fit half cop center-back like Silvestre or
Squillaci however it seems this is [.
Arsenal are having a serious blip in their season having failed to score a goal from open play in
their last three games, including two against Championship sides. But Arsene Wenger will point to
the fact that he has rotated the team and tomorrow he will have all his big guns fresh, rested, and
In a quite bizarre claim yesterday, Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas claimed that Ipswich played a
'rugby' kick with the long ball over the top of the defence, which Tamas Priskin ran onto and
scored the goal that gave Arsenal one of their most embarrassing defeats in recent memory. These
are the words that Cesc used: "I [.
The Daily Mail claim that Arsenal are closing in on securing the Â£5m purchase of Southampton
midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in a surprise move to prevent rivals Man United and Liverpool
from getting their hands on the youngster. The move would come as a massive surprise to fans after
the focus has been on bolstering the center-back [.
I was watching very closely the BBC interview with Arsene Wenger after last nights defeat to
Ipswich, and considering the enormity of the defeat he certainly managed to keep a straight face
for most of the two minutes. There were a couple of little twitches when i thought he was going to
cry but he [.
After the FA Cup game against Leeds where Arsenal only managed to snatch a draw in the dying
seconds, Arsene Wenger was hoping for a confidence-boosting result against an Ipswich team that had
been totally battered by Chelsea on the same day, losing by 7-0. But somehow Arsenal managed to
lose to a team that is [.
We have seen some weird and whacky transfer rumours for Arsenal before, but has there been one
whackier than those claiming that 34 year old Italian defender Nicola Legrottaglie is being
considered? Various news media outlets are running with the story that Arsenal are interested in
signing the experienced Juventus defender as a short term option [.
The first bit of Arsenal transfer action of this January window is the loaning out of youngster
Wellington Silva to Spanish club Levante. Wellington doesn't qualify for a British work-permit and
after losing an appeal at a FIFA hearing, needs to be loaned out to Spain until he qualifies.
Arsenal announced the move just before the [.
Arsene Wenger seemed to say the other day that he was definitely going to be trying to buy a new
centre-back for Arsenal this month, but now it seems that he has back-tracked, and has said on the
official Arsenal site that he doesn't really one after all! But of course IF a top-class defender
Today's Guest Post comes from a new Arsenal fan site called ArseneWenger.com. Being specialists in
Wenger's thoughts hopefully they will be able to help us all interpret the great mans psychological
musings in the future..... Wenger's New Player Options for Arsenal's 2010-2011 Defence January is
usually the time when Premier League teams conduct player transfers.
According to media sources, this is the squad that Arsenal have taken to Ipswich for tonight's
game: Szczesny, Eboue, Djourou, Koscielny, Gibbs, Arshavin, Song, Ramsey, Rosicky, Walcott,
Bendtner, Fabianski, Van Persie, Chamakh, Fabregas, Clichy, Denilson, Miquel, Wilshere, Vela. A
very strong squad for what is a very important game.
Welcome to another day of Arsenal transfer rumours, surprisingly the rumour mill is not running at
full whack yet, still time though. It says a lot that a lot of fans are not expecting us to sign a
player, even after the manager has been a lot more forthcoming regarding transfers recently. Today
he said: "Unfortunately I [.
The Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner finally got a full 90 minutes of football from Arsene Wenger
this weekend in the disastrous 1-1 draw with Leeds United at the Emirates, and is hoping that his
performance will persuade Wenger to play him more regularly (I doubt it!). But now that he has been
demoted to being a [.
I have an excellent first Guest Post from Paul today, who has seen the error of his ways and thinks
that we should now all rally behind Wenger's master plan and trust in his judgement. I enjoyed it
and I hope you all do too. Over to you Paul......... The doubts crept up on me. [...]
It has been a quite quiet day today for Arsenal transfer rumours. It is well accepted that it is a
question of a center-back or nothing when it comes to signings, the manager is waiting on the
diagnosis of Sebastian Squillaci's injury after Thomas Vermaelen had yet another setback in
training, Italian full-back Davide Santon is [.
It is astoundingly clear that Arsene Wenger needs to splash out on a center-back. The overall
quality of players we have there is not good enough firstly Squillaci is a poor mans Silvestre,
Koscielny has very good technique and will develop into a good defender but at the moment he is
error prone and [.
The Russian attacker Andrei Arshavin has looked out of sorts all season, and although he has scored
a few goals (and quite a few assists as well) he has rarely looked animated in games except for
short periods. The flashes of brilliance that the Arsenal fans expected to see last season are
rarely seen this [.
Arsene Wenger has had Thomas Vermaelen injured since the end of August, and has kept his hopes
alive that could return to the squad consistently all season, but with no assurance that his
recovery is complete. This week saw Sebastien Squillaci suffer a hamstring injury as well, and he
has finally admitted that Arsenal can't [.
A look through today's two main Arsenal rumours and they are big, big rumours. Probably rubbish
though but interesting all the same and well worth a read. The Sunday Express are running a story
claiming that Sol Campbell may return to Arsenal as cover for Thomas Vermaelen and to be quite
honest I think it [.
Theo Walcott is a mild mannered, friendly and genuine guy. This is coming from someone who has
asked him questions at Q&A functions and always liked him. However, he dived when he first appealed
for a penalty against Leeds, there was no contact apart from him treading on someone's foot and he
deliberately took a [.
Arsene Wenger made use of his full squad of supposedly experienced internationals today, but they
struggled to force Leeds United into a replay to settle this FA Cup third-round tie. Out favourite
Guest Writer Adam Kemp feels quite strongly that Wenger needs to quit playing ALL his mediocre
players at one time against anyone.
Arsenal face Leeds United in the FA Cup today and Arsene Wenger has admitted there will be big
changes from the team that faced Man City, but will Arsenal still beat their old rivals easily?
Before i start I would first like to thank this weeks sponsor PartTimePoker.com, who aim to help
online poker players by [.
Arsene Wenger has been linked with the brilliant young attacking midfielder Eden Hazard ever since
he first came to prominence as a 16 year-old, and the player has regularly admitted that he would
love to come to Arsenal when he finally leaves Lille. Now the French club have accepted that they
are now about to lose [.
Sanchez Watt has joined Leeds United on loan for the entire duration of this season and Arsenal
have given him special permission to face his own team when the game takes place later today at the
Emirates in the FA Cup third round. It is a rare occurrence that a loanee plays against his
full-time employers [.
In Arsene Wenger's pre-match press conference ahead of the FA Cup clash with Leeds United, he was
drawn into comment on the short-term futures of four players, whilst he also gave us an update on
the situation of Aaron Ramsey. Vela, Jay Emmanuel-Thomas and Almunia have been the subject of
intense transfer speculation in the past [.
Here is an interesting well-researched article from Ahmed, who has been looking at the upcoming
fictures between all the possible title contenders, and he believes that Arsenal definitely have
the easiest passage to the end of the season..... As Good As It Gets There's been a lot of debate
among the Arsenal faithful about our chances of [.
Luke Shephard, one of our young Guest Posters, would like some fair discussion about some Arsenal
men that are quiet heroes at the club, and thinks that they should be praised for their
contributions rather than criticized at every opportunity. He left the most controversial to
last..... Unsung Heroes.
Last night the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger confirmed that Samir Nasri and Robin van Persie picked
up injuries in the 0-0 draw against Man City.Â The next game is against Leeds United in the FA Cup
tomorrow and it is likely that the manager will play a significantly different team to the one that
Today we have another Guest Post from everyone's favourite, Adam Kemp! But for the first time in
the history of Just Arsenal News he is in a positive mood about Wenger and Arsenal! Enjoy..........

Reports in Columbia are gathering pace that Porto striker Falcao is interesting Arsenal who may be
set to launch a â‚¬30 million bid for the forward who has netted 53 goals in 64 games for the
Portuguese side. FutbolRed.com suggest that Falcao will be brought in as a replacement for fellow
South American Carlos Vela who [.
Reports in the media suggest that Arsenal are chasing the signature of want-away Liverpool defender
Daniel Agger. Liverpool have been in shocking form this season and manager Roy Hodgson may not even
make it though the next 24 hours as manager after a humiliating defeat away at Blackburn has piled
even more misery onto him, the [.
It seems that Belgian wonderkid Eden Hazard is closing in on joining Arsenal as, according to
sources close to Hazard, they are in the driving seat for his signature. The sport.co.uk source
said: "There is a lot of interest in Eden currently as you would expect. Which top club in football
wouldn't want to be interested in [.
I am very happy to introduce yet another Guest Poster today, he is an accomplished writer and

The Blackburn defender Christopher Samba has yet again spoken out and criticized the new owners of

respect" to the [.
Arsenal transfer rumours are relatively thin on the ground at the moment but the rumour that
everyone dreads has finally surfaced Samir Nasri is interesting Barcelona and they are planning to
make a move for the French international who has almost single-handedly won Arsenal games this

Lacina Traore is currently being offered around clubs in England, and the rest of Europe. His
burgeoning reputation amongst football fans and clubs alike has come after his impressive Champions
League performances for CFR Cluj and also in the Romanian domestic league. JustArsenal understands
that Traore has been offered to Arsenal and there have been discussions [.
The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been talking frankly about the transfer window, and has
admitted that if Thomas Vermaelen does not react well to his latest treatment then the Gunners may
be forced to buy another centre-back to cover the Belgian's absence. Wenger admitted: "Yes, should
Thomas Vermaelen not come back quickly that is an [.
The Man Utd manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been speaking ahead of tonights game against Stoke City

one of their main critics but then the [.

Ryo Miyaichi is not a name on the lips of most Arsenal fans, however, he is indeed their latest
signing. The deal was put in place last summer on transfer deadline day and has recently been
confirmed on the official club website. A statement read: Arsenal Football Club is delighted to
confirm that Japanese forward Ryo [.
Gary Cahill has been the subject of strong Arsenal transfer interest for the past 12 months, and
having seen his development swiftly turn into an international cap, his price has reflected his
rise in status. With Chelsea also rumoured to be interested in the former Villa man, Bolton can
pretty much name any price they [.
Due to his progressing recovery from a serious knee injury that kept him out for the entire
duration of last season, Johann Djourou must be considered a doubt to face Man City this week due
to his inability to play two games a week. Wenger himself said this week: "Djourou was out for nine
Carlos Vela's Arsenal career will take a new twist after being allowed to leave on loan for the
rest of the season by manager Arsene Wenger. Carlos, who arrived at the club having served three

Arsenal and Liverpool are squaring up to battle it out over German centre-back Per Mertesacker. The
Metro are reporting that an Â£8.5 million offer has been tabled by Arsenal for the Werder Bremen
favourite and German international and Liverpool are hot on their tail and keen to test Bremen's
resolve with a more attractive offer as [.
There is increasing speculation that Arsenal's Jay Emmanuel-Thomas is a target for East Midland's
based Nottingham Forest. Thomas' team mate Aaron Ramsey has just completed a short-term loan deal
at the club and with Arsenal keen to take Ramsey back, Forest are believed to have inquired as to
the availability of the tall but skilful attacking [.
Arsene Wenger was extremely pleased with the way that his team handled the "physical challenges" of
Birmingham City to record an impressive 3-0 win at St. Andrews yesterday and the way they refused
to let Alex McLeish's side stop them playing their free-flowing football. "We were prepared today
to face the challenges, physical challenges.
It clearly looks like Manuel Almunia has played his last game for the Gunners, and most Arsenal
fans would suggest that he has outstayed his welcome by about six months. Just about all the
Arsenal blogs on the web were publishing articles saying that the 33 year-old Spaniard had to be
replaced as it was revealed [.
The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger made eight changes to the team he took to Wigan on Wednesday and
was roundly critized for resting nearly all the players that performed so well against Chelsea at
the Emirates on Monday, but the Frenchman is certain that he made the right decision. Wenger
