Arsenal squad assessment part 3 by KJ Attack: Our attacking players demonstrates the real strength
Arsenal has. Even with Van Persie leaving, we still have a wealth of talent both young and
experienced ready to shine in the Premier league. Strikers: Our strikers have become limited after
the imminent departure of Van Persie.
There are a number of players being mentioned who could be on the verge of leaving Arsenal for loan

Yann M'Vila has been heavily tipped to become an Arsenal player long before the summer transfer

Should Arsenal keep Bendtner? by KJ With Van Persie almost certainly leaving the Gunners this
summer, it is paramount that Wenger replaces him. We actually have a young but seasoned

The Fallacy About Arsenal Reserve/Youth Players This will be a brief post, but I'm curious to know

Some people think that Arsenal have already replaced Robin van Persie with Lukas Podolski and
Olivier Giroud, but that assumes that Arsene Wenger has given up the fight to keep his captain at

some time ago, but his international debut has been delayed due to his few injury problems, but
also because Ghana need to get clearance from the British football authorities proving that he
hasn't made himself ineligible in any way.
All the latest Arsenal transfer rumours concerning Robin Van Persie appear to indicate that

recent problems are down to Wenger and [.
Has van Persie started to break the bond between a club's fans and their players? At the beginning
of this so-called summer things were looking pretty good as an Arsenal supporter. Whilst Podolski
hadn't officially transferred due to the transfer window not having opened, the deal had for all
intents and purposes been done.
As early as February this year it was being rumoured that Arsenal had supposedly already arranged a
pre-contract with the Schalke midfielder Lewis Holtby, who is (like a couple of our players....)
entering the final year of his contract at the Bundesliga club. The deal seemed dead in the water

Another day and yet another story about Robin Van Persie I'm afraid as he has been in the papers

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Carl Jenkinson can hardly wait for the season to start, and that has to
be a good thing. 20-year old Jenkinson and 18-year old Oxlade-Chamberlain began their Arsenal

success. Jenkinson made an impressive start and [.
Ibrahim Affelay missed almost the whole of last season for Barcelona due to a cruciate ligament

his appearances for Holland [.
Emmanuel Frimpong could be in deep doo-doo after getting involved with a Tottenham fan on his

reference, Frimpong could not have picked a worse time.
There is a deafening lack of information coming from the club about Theo Walcott signing a new

This question could refer to three different Arsenal players. Reports have linked Barcelona to
Thomas Vermaelen, Ignasi Miquel and now Laurent Koscielny. Don't the Spanish side know any other
teams to look at? The worry for me is that Koscielny, like a couple of other Gunners, only has a
year to run on his current [.
I know it is only the first outing in pre-season but the two 45 minute games at St. Mary's in
