Morning all and it's Friday, at last.

News is somewhat scarce but we'll muddle on and find something to talk about. We could start with the fact the club gave some futher insight into the appointments of Steve Bould and Neil Banfield. We know that the former is going to be Arsene's assistant but Banfield thought he was just going to have a chat about the reserves when the boss called him into his office:

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has finally spoken at length about the nature of the team's early season struggles and how uncertainty crept in to the minds of all squad members.

Laurent Koscielny, who scored the match-winning goal in the Gunners' 3-2 triumph at WBA on the final day of the season to secure a strong third-place finish, recently told French media that nobody felt comfortable being at the club during the opening weeks of the 2011-12 season.

Gunners boss considers suing referee

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits that the somewhat excessive five minutes of added time at the end of yesterday's 3-2 win at West Bromwich Albion were tremendously stressful and that he is considering the possibility of suing referee Mike Jones.

Wenger was thrilled that his side managed to end the turbulent 2011-12 season on a high note despite a lot of drama unfolding on the final day itself.

We score an early goal, then we let two in, then we score two more before holding on for dear life for the win. And that, ladies and gentlemen, sums up Arsenal's strengths and weaknesses in one handy cut-out-and-keep sentence.

Ultimately though, despite pretty much three dicky patches, ten league defeats and a defence that shipped 49 goals, we have come third and made our summer all the more enjoyable in the process.

Rice Retires, Bould Promoted + Early West Brom Thoughts

Desi Gunner at related • 2 views

Pat Rice wanted to call it a day at the end of last season. Arsene, perhaps with a premonition of the tumultuous summer, persuaded him to stay one more year. With all the changes in the squad, another vital one in the backroom staff might have been too difficult to manage. This summer will hopefully be a more stable one as far as departures are concerned and that should give the new man some breathing space as he learns the ropes and establishes his own identity.

Steve Bould faces considerable challenges as Wenger's assistant

Soccerblog at related • 1 view


Be bold, Steve!

This is a long overdue move. Pat Rice was joined at Arsene Wenger's hip as his assistant, an association that dates 16 years since the Frenchman joined the club. He has been part of Arsenal's glorious past as well as its less stellar present. But it is clear that Arsenal need to reverse course with some new thinking especially when it comes to the defensive end.

Is Steve Bould the man to sort Arsenal’s defensive inadequacies?

OK Football Finder at related • 0 views

Over the past seven years Arsenal's defensive inadequacies have been there for all to see. The same amount of time the team has failed to win a trophy. It's also no coincidence it's seven years since Patrick Viera left the club too.

Arsenal fans must feel like they are caught in a very long version of Ground Hog Day.

Firstly, I would like to thank Pat Rice for everything he has done for Arsenal Football Club.
He has been at Arsenal so long that he is part of the furniture. And the shorts. Oh those shorts. It will be strange not seeing Pat buzzing round the technical area in them shorts, that's for sure.
