Month of September will be crucial to Arsenal's season by SE After enjoying a slick start to their season, with wins over Manchester City in the FA Community Shield and Crystal Palace in the Premier League opener, Arsenal just had a slight dip in form towards the end of August. That, however, didn't impede them [.
Former England manager Terry Venables has no reason to want Arsenal to do well, having played for and been manager of our fierce north London rivals Tottenham, but even he is desperate for Arsene Wenger to see sense and see that the squad needs some top quality players bringing in to allow us to fight [.
There were reports earlier today that Danny Welbeck was having a medical at Arsenal ahead of his £6 million loan move. Tottenham Hotspur had been favourites to sign him but the striker preferred a move to their North London rivals.
However, his agent has claimed that Welbeck has the option to leave the club on a permanent basis, with the assumption being made that it was to Arsenal.
According to the The Guardian, both Arsenal and Tottenham have submitted inquiries as to the availability of Manchester City's young centre-back Matija Nastasic.
Nastasic, 21, is thought to be available thought City are keen to sell the Serbian defender on a permanent deal in a bid to recoup as much of the £12million fee they splurged on him back in 2012 as possible.
Howard deserves criticism for his performance against Chelsea
Asking for improvement from a goalkeeper who has conceded six goals isn't brain surgery. For the last couple of seasons, Tim Howard has been rightly heralded as one of the best goalkeepers in the league. His performances in the World Cup, particularly against Belgium, elevated him to icon status in the USA.
Tottenham will be fighting on four fronts during their 2014/15 campaign with the Premier League, Europa League, League Cup and FA Cup all on the agenda for Mauricio Pochettino's men. Daniel Levy appointed the Argentinian with a main objective of returning to the top four of the Premier League in mind.
Although Tottenham bossed possession during Sunday's 3-0 defeat at the hands of Liverpool, the home side never really looked like they were going to get anything from the match. One shot on target against Liverpool's eight tells the story and a goal from Raheem Sterling after eight minutes quickly killed the feel good factor generated from the win over QPR just seven days previous.
The daredevil pitch-invader who sprinted onto the pitch during West Ham's recent Premier League tie against Tottenham has been fined for his troubles.
The fan in question, 22-year-old Jordan Dunn, appeared atThames Magistrates' Court in East London on Monday in order to answer for his heinous crimes, with his decision to invade the pitch described as a "drunken moment of madness".

Liverpool served up another hammering for Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday as the Reds found the back of the net on three occasions with no return from the home side. All eyes were on Mario Balotelli from the off but it was Sterling, Gerrard and Moreno who got themselves on the score sheet.
The Reds did not take long at all to get into the game and trouble Hugo Lloris.
Spurs 0-3 Liverpool Game in 10 Tweets is a post from: Just Football
This game was billed as an early gage of the credentials of both sides after summers of transition, but in the end there was only one winner. Liverpool eased past Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 at White Hart Lane, thanks to goals from Raheem Sterling, Steven Gerrard and a first goal in Liverpool red for £12million summer signing Alberto Moreno.
Yesterday Spurs meekly succumbed to Liverpool's power, pace and team-work. Rodgers and Pochettino are disciples of the new football, play at pace, work as a unit with and without the ball and press until the life is squeezed from your opponent. Three games, 12 goals with none in reply, show the Reds are streets ahead.
