£23m is a nifty piece of business for a semi to permanently crocked striker who when he can play healthy scores. The good thing too is that this bit of business was resolved so quickly before it became a major drag on the season's start.

Truth be told, RVP has been a peripheral figure in Arsenal's recent existence which explains why his departure doesn't have the same gut wrenching quality as say Cesc Fabregas last year.

Am I the only one who chuckled when we signed Podolski? I mean the signing at that time and of that grade of player didn't just pull the carpet from those who love to criticise Arsenal's transfer policy, it yanked it so hard that they were thrown in the air and silenced upon landing.

Wenger only signs kids.

It is possible to beat teams like Man C and Chelsea. But it takes care and patience.

Who Is To Blame At Arsenal?

Much has been made of Arsenal's 8-2 demolition at the hands of Manchester United on Sunday, and rightly so. Being hammered so comprehensively by a team that is not supposed to so emphatically superior (if the purported competitiveness of the Premier League is to be believed) and has, in the not too distant past, been a direct rival displays an embarrassing contrast in fortunes between Arsenal and the teams immediately around them in the top echelon of the English game.
