One thing is for sure, Arsenal fans, and it is that Danny Welbeck would not have become a Gunner in the early hours of this morning if Alex Ferguson had still been in charge. To be honest, I was half expecting Man United to do what Mourinho and Chelsea did with Demba Ba last summer. [...]
I am happy and relieved that Arsene Wenger accepted that Yaya Sanogo was not enough and that Arsenal needed to sign another centre forward, especially with Olivier Giroud being out of action until around the end of the year. And I'm not going to be down on the Frenchman for signing Danny Welbeck either, it [.
Although Arsenal did not have a very busy transfer deadline day yesterday, the Gunners did manage to do most of their business early in the window. In the end, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger strengthened his team compared to last year's squad, spending over $130 million on five first team players and three young academy players (including highly-rated 16-year-old midfielder Ben Sheaf from West Ham).
You would have to think that Yaya Sanogo is a lot better in front of goal when he is training with the Arsenal squad, otherwise he would never get a game with the first team. But it is also clear that the lanky young Frenchman lacks confidence in front of goal during a competitive game. [...]
With Arsenal failing or turning down the chance to sign a new centre forward to cover for the injured France international Olivier Giroud, you would have to assume that Arsene Wenger thinks he has got enough options in the Arsenal squad already to cope until Christmas. And with his reluctance to use either Walcott or [.
I can understand why Arsenal fans are less than thrilled about us signing Danny Welbeck. After the hope of getting Falcao and due to the last minute nature of the transfer, it feels like Arsene Wenger is settling for second best, but I have just been looking at Welbeck's stats for last season and you [.

These clips seem to do the rounds all the time but, without checking, they've not been whacked up on Pies before so, with Danny Welbeck leaving Manchester United to become Arsenal's new No.23 after spending pretty much his entire career at Old Trafford, we figured this is as good a time as any to post them.
The transfer window has closed with Premier League clubs spending over £800m to set themselves up for the long season ahead. Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United have all spent big but still, waking up this morning, You have to look at Chelsea and Manchester City as the squads with perfect balance.
Why Danny Welbeck is a good signing for Arsenal - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Arsenal shocked us everyone last night by signing Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck. The Gunners badly needed a striker and had been linked with several big names like Edinson Cavani and Radamel Falcao throughout the summer.
Much like the Falcao deal, this one went through far past Pies' bedtime after Arsenal applied for a special post-window grace period to hammer out the finer details of the move, but the club have since been able to confirm that their £16million deal to sign Danny Welbeck from Manchester United was completed in the wee small hours of the morn.

Falcao, Welbeck, Negredo...Names of Transfer Deadline Day the good deals and the bad is a post from: Just Football
Ajam-packed transfer deadline day started with the improbable news that Manchester United were on track to sign Radamel Falcao on loan, and the Colombian's switch to Old Trafford continued to dominate headlines for much of the day.
A flurry of big moves marked the end of the European summer transfer window on Monday. Radamel Falcao is off to Manchester United. Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez will head to Real Madrid. Danny Welbeck joins Arsenal. And a whole bunch more.
But U.S. Men's National Team fans will probably be most interested in Julian Green's loan to Hamburger SV, which became official Monday.
Danny Welbeck has agreed to join Arsenal in a £16m deal, after a topsy-turvy deadline day during which his transfer to the Emirates remained in the balance until the very end.
Welbeck had attracted interest from Sunderland, Hull and Tottenham, with Spurs looking favourite to clinch a loan deal for the United striker, before Arsenal entered the race on Monday afternoon, as Arsene Wenger looked to bolster his options up-front following an injury that will keep Olivier Giroud out until December.
My opinion ? The problem is Wenger. by Tom Friend Too long at Arsenal: I find it alarming that Wenger's ego is tolerated for so many years. Wenger has all character trades of a man who believes he doesn't need any advice and the results are bad... really bad... While teams like Liverpool and Everton [.
Well Arsenal fans, how much did we enjoy that transfer deadline day? About as much as the first visit to meet your girlfriends parents or maybe the last time you went to A and E and had to sit all night to see a stressed out nurse to have splinters of glass picked out of [...]

Arsene Wenger openly claimed in the media that Arsenal won't be selling young striker Joel Campbell in the summer. That should have ended all speculations. For those Arsenal fans, who kept on reminding us this that since a manager of the club has said it, rest of the media stories are all fabricated, we have a name for you: Jose Mourinho.
It seems as though Jack Wilshere has been talked about as the future of the England national team ever since he first broke on to the scene as an Arsenal teenager. But that expectation has turned into criticism in recent years, with most of those critics completely ignoring all the times spent on the sidelines [.
