A matter of luck

Looking back at the start of the season (I know it has only just begun and we haven't played that many games but allow me to indulge in it) and especially after the departure of Alex Song, at that time I really thought that Francis Coquelin would be a confirmed starter. It's no rocket science that he is one who could play in a similar role to the one vacated by Song.

One large helping of revenge please

Hello, welcome to Sunday.

If you're hoping for plenty of action-packed, cliff-hanging, edge of seat, thrilling and spilling Arsenal news then I'm afraid you're going to be disappointed. The only spilling this morning is my coffee from out of my new Bodum©®, and even that was only a little bit.

Good day to all of you. International break, not a lot going on but let's get cracking anyway. First up, a couple of things from a day or two back.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is apparently up for contract renewal. He's a bright young lad with the world in front of him.

Morning all,

many headlines this morning regarding PHW's interview in the Standard screaming 'WE CAN'T COMPETE', which really doesn't tell the full story. We can't compete in some respects, we know that, and that's what the Chairman said.

"At a certain level, we can't compete"

And he's talking about the clubs whose resources are endless.

Starlet closing in on Gunners return

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that midfielder Jack Wilshere is ready to return to playing within the next month or so.

Wilshere, 20, has not been in action since suffering a pre-season injury last year and his absence leaves a void in the Gunners' midfield, particularly after the departure of Alex Song to Barcelona earlier this summer.

Anfield. Arsenal do have plenty of memories at this ground. As with many things in this world, there are good memories and bad memories. Whether we were old enough to remember the 1989 game or know about it via watching old videos or reading articles about it, that last game of the season has to go down as one of the best moments in Arsenal's history.

The Sunday game against Stoke was my first chance watching any incarnation of Arsenal since last May and as predicted there were some good points and bad points that caught my eye. I felt they started the game with a lot of energy and speed and basically controlled the pace of the match. Abou Diaby actually stood out for the first 20 minutes as it's as good as I've ever seen him play.

Despite the departure of former captain Robin van Persie earlier this week and persistent rumors surrounding the future of star midfielder Alex Song, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is confident that Arsenal start the Premier League season in great mood this afternoon.

The Gunners welcome Sunderland to the Emirates in a rematch of the FA Cup clash that resulted in the former's elimination six months ago but this time around, Oxlade-Chamberlain is feeling very optimistic about his side's chances.

Baton passed over to them

This is the last of the look at the squad and we're at the forward line now. On the official website, there are 9 players listed there. One, we would not talk about because at this point, he's probably looking at what's the best route to got to Old Trafford. There's another 2 more which also doesn't warrant mention because just like the one before, they are on the verge (in the loosest sense) of leaving the club.

Arsenal squad looks strong with or without Van Persie

No matter if Robin van Persie stays with Arsenal or pulls another club's shirt over his head this season, the London club looks to be a pretty strong side. The team will eventually have last year's long-term injured players back, such as Jack Wilshere and the new signings are all pretty much world-class players.

Observations on Arsenal’s Asian Trip

First off, let me say I am most encouraged by the way everyone went for goal. Wenger always says he likes everyone in his team to score, and it seems they are really taking it to heart. Is it just for pre season, or is it really a new attitude?  I hope it continues into the regular season. I sometimes wonder if our guys are a little gun- shy, because we think everything has to go through van Persie.

Would Arsenal benefit from purchasing M’Vila and Cazorla?

Arsenal have always not been big spenders in any transfer window, always opting for purchasing players at the age of 15 and 16 for £400,000, rather than spending £25 £30 million on proven talent, and hoping they become the next big thing. Fabregas is one of the rare occasions where it has actually worked.

Good morning/afternoon to you. Believe me I've tried, but up to this point in time, there's not a single picture available from yesterday's first training session back with all the big boys. Perhaps it will be up on the official website later, who knows. But I'm sure we'll like to see how Nicklas Bendtner reacts to the presence of Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud at the training ground.

Theo Walcott is confident that England and Arsenal teammate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will return to the Gunners squad for the pre-season much stronger than before after taking part in this summer's Euro 2012 tournament.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was a shock inclusion in Roy Hodgson's 23-man squad for Poland and Ukraine but the 18-year old didn't stop there; he also earned his first start against the in-form France last Monday.

England winger Theo Walcott has defended skipper Steven Gerrard for an incident that took away what was poised to be Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's first goal for the Three Lions.

Walcott came off the bench during Friday's 3-2 win over Sweden and in his impressive substitute appearance, he was able to score the equalizer and assist Danny Welbeck's match-winner to help England come from 2-1 behind to claim all three points.

Lions midfielder demands better finishing

The only England goal was a Joleon Lescott header from a Steven Gerrard free-kick but Samir Nasri quickly equalized after the interval to leave Roy Hodgson's men searching for more.

The right connection

Now that I've done with the favourites (my own choice, at least) for Euro 2012, it's time to look at those dark horses. Teams that I won't necessarily wage my house on but worth a small punt if the prices are right. Teams that will go into the tournament without much chance of winning it but could rise to the occasion and spring a surprise or two.
