Our recent loss appears not to have damaged the confidence both on and off the pitch which considering the state of the club in January is a remarkable turn around.

Just take an objective look at the situation: a world class player central to his team's plans has 3 years left on his contract, and wishes to go to a team that his club competes with (or aspires tocompete with).

Arsenal have strengthened their strikeforce by bringing in French striker Yaya Sanogo on a free transfer from French club Auxerre. The 20-year-old perfectly fits the bill for being called as an Arsenal signing – French, young, and cheap. Arsenal fans, though, will be hoping that this experiment pays off much better than the Marouane Chamakh experiment.

In the 52nd minute at St. James' Park, the inevitable happened. Arsenal scored. Not many would have banked on the rejuvenated Laurent Koscielny to break the deadlock in such a fine fashion, putting his team firmly in the driving seat after a well taken half-volley, but it was no surprise to see another Wenger team heading for the Champions League (with the qualification round in their path) for the umpteenth time in a row (16 to be exact).

Morning all.

Last night I dreamt that Arsenal's manager was an evil clown, in full make up, who had a cutlass for a hand and none of the people in the press conference would ask him any questions for fear that he'd behead them. This enraged him more than being asked a question he didn't like, so he went on a frenzy, chopping and slicing and all kinds of stuff.

Barcelona have resisted the temptation of sending the 31-year-old on loan to top English clubs like Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham, insisting they will only consider a permanent switch.

How do? A quick Sunday round-up for you.

Yesterday saw a 2-2 draw with Napoli in our first game of the Emirates Cup. Some sloppy defending from Carl Jenkinson, and a bit of unconvincing goalkeeping from Lukasz Fabianski, allowed the visitors take a 2-0 lead at half-time. This was despite the fact we'd pretty much dominated the game in terms of possession.

It has been unseasonably hot here in Ireland for the last week. Which is a great thing, don't get me wrong, but I suspect our new tropical climates means an upsurge in tropical insects and spiders. One of which bit me on the neck last night.
