Which Arsenal players will you select in your fantasy football team?

Arsenal kick off their Premier League campaign this weekend against Aston Villa, so before kick-off at the Emirates Stadium make sure you get your fantasy football team finalised. With a quiet summer in the transfer market for the north London club, you will be left to pick from last year's squad that finished in fourth place in the Premier League.

Watson for England By the age of 25, it's normally time to settle down in a job, accept that Phil Collins does indeed have a few catchy numbers and limber up for a begrudging jog towards reproduction and sensible haircuts.

Do the Gunners really need (or want) to spend big money? by PH

With the obvious lack of success at Arsenal over the last 7 or 8 years all the fans are getting frustrated and hoping for better times. However, it is easy to go over the top wishing Arsenal could get hold of this top player, or spend this many 10′s of millions on the latest in-form striker.

Jump to May 19th. Real Madrid finally emerge from the shadow of Barcelona, completing the double taking home La Liga and the Champions League. Ronaldo scores a wonderful goal and is now considered the best in the world. Most suprising of all is the big smile on Jose Mourinho's face. It was a great fantasy and before Wednesday's match, it looked like a very real possibility.

MLS Fantasy Recap: Week 2

WVHooligan at related • 0 views

Yes, yes, week two in my MLS Fantasy endeavor was more of the same. Decent but not great. Above average and still lacking true quality. I will give it up to MLS, this year's game is challenging and has some decent quality to it. It also shows I am pretty terrible at this game.

Anyways, my team (WVH AC) put out a decent 41 points this week.

[Don't forget to enter for your chance to Win a Union Travel Mug from Philly Union Talk] Goals for. Goals against. Pass completion percentage. Minutes, miles, years, days, months. No sports fan can resist the temptation of cold hard stats. Maybe it's the fantasy of being able to understand what's basically inscrutable, to make logical sense out of a wildly unpredictable and emotional thing.

If you told a group of people at the start of the season that Novara would beat Internazionale twice in 2011/12 you'd have been laughed out of the room. The fantasy became a reality on Sunday, however, when the relegation-threatened Biancoazzurri left the Giuseppe Meazza with another Nerazzurri scalp.

Modric and Sneijder should be top of Fergie's shopping list

Gutted for Darren Fletcher, who looks like missing the rest of the season with a bowel disorder. I think he's seriously under-rated as a big-game player for Manchester United and Scotland. What I, and I'm sure millions of United fans would like to see now is Sir Alex Ferguson responding to his side's injury crisis by throwing his transfer beliefs out of the window for this January only.
