It was a great week for Gunners.

We had the signing of an expensive midfielder. Strong, leader, more powerful left foot than Lukas, young, International. Here's some perspective. He cost at least three times what we spent on Elneny, who I had never heard of and is brilliant. I am very excited by this, and it's what we've all been calling for.

Will somebody please make a decision on RVP

Sky Sports ran an article on Tuesday night  (July 10) claiming that striker Robin Van Persie might reconsider his decision to re-sign with Arsenal and many websites jumped all over it. However, the article didn't last long and within a couple of hours it had disappeared from the Sky site. Perhaps the Dutchman is trying to achieve what Wayne Rooney did a couple of years ago by saying publicly he wanted to leave the club and then signing a new mega-million pound contract.

That's a good place for Carroll's 14 top-flight goals, solitary international cap and the big bread winner, his English birth certificate.

Marc Overmars on the run

Interesting stuff from Steve Kelly in the headline-tastic Chronicle. Kelly notes that Aston Villa's pressing put Fulham out of their stride and that this was hard to counter.
