'I would say (a squad needs) 17 or 18 (senior) players and young players. If you have too many (seniors), you never have the chance to give a young player an opportunity. Once you have 25 senior players you can send your academy to the moon because no one will ever get the chance to play.'

Thus spoke Arsene this summer and his words have quickly mocked the meat that they feed upon.

Give Wenger A New Contract But With Less Responsability

Arsene Wenger's contract at Arsenal runs out next summer and although people are saying it may be time to replace him I think that would be the wrong move.

He's been with Arsenal for a zillion years and sometimes change can be good to freshen things up but I genuinely believe that Arsene has it in him to end his days here on a high.

So with the lowly Coventry dispatched with consummate ease earlier this evening, focus now turns to a Saturday lunchtime humdinger of a match against the mob from West of Moscow.

Both sides are firing in the goals at the minute, but there is a difference, one side is solid and leaking the odd goal whilst the other is rather living on the edge and having to outscore opponents.

The young guns along with the first teamers who are not getting the requisite playing time take to the pitch in the newly named Capital One Cup tonight, and it should give us a huge insight into the next generation along with the strength in depth the first team have. The game is not going to be broadcast anywhere live, so no streams will be available, which is fine by me as I'm through to the latter stages of an online poker tournament kicking off at the same time.

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.

Morning all, it's a gloomy Monday here but the countdown to the new season has well and truly begun now.

We played our final warm-up game yesterday, running out 4-0 winners over FC Koln and in truth we could have had plenty more than four.

Good morning to you,

it's a pretty quiet Sunday so a very quick round-up ahead of our final game before the new season kicks off in less than a week's time (hold me). Again, this is just a pre-season game so conditioning and fitness are paramount, but it's also the first (and last) chance the manager has to use his new players and give them some match practice before Sunderland.

Not much news on the Arsenal front, although Santi Cazorla has travelled to Germany for pre-season training and the friendly match against FC Köln on Sunday.

I really hope that Arsene is going to treat this game a bit more seriously than the ones on the Far Eastern tour. I would like to see him field a true first XI team or something resembling one for at least 60 minutes, before making the wholesale changes that are typical of this type of match.
