Title: ARSENAL FORWARD
Post by: ANC2 on April 16, 2006, 08:28:33 AM
Regardless what happens this year will be Arsenal's lowest placing in the League since Wenger took over. Amazing record when you really think about it. Since he came to Arsenal the lowest he finished was second. On another front I hope ManU give Chelsea a run, but Chelsea seems to win even when theynot playing well, too many weapons.

Title: Arsenal's Dein voted off FA board...Finally!!!

Arsenal's Dein voted off FA board

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/5042352.stm

Arsenal vice-chairman David Dein has been voted off the Football Association board by the Premier League. Dein was voted out of office as one of the Premier League's four representatives in favour of Manchester United chief executive David Gill.

Gill said: "I am looking forward to working with my fellow board members."

Dein, who will continue to sit on the FA Council, has been criticised for his role in finding Sven-Goran Eriksson's successor as England coach.

Dein's removal also comes a day after it was revealed Arsenal could face an FA probe into payments made to Belgian club Beveren.

The Arsenal vice-chairman has established himself as one of the most important figures in the domestic game.

He was co-opted on to the selection panel to find a successor to Sven-Goran Eriksson, with Dein thought to be a prime mover in pushing the cause of Portugal's Brazilian coach Scolari.

Scolari rejected the FA's offer, prompting criticism from Middlesbrough chairman Steve Gibson.

Middlesbrough manager Steve McClaren's appointment to succeed Eriksson prompted Gibson to questioned why Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger had not been pursued more vigourously.

That in turn forced the FA to respond that Wenger stated categorically he did not want the job when approached by FA chief executive Brian Barwick.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho also claimed Dein's FA ties provided an unbalanced fixture list, with Arsenal having five Premiership games at home immediately following Champions League trips, while Chelsea played five away.

Gill, 48, is as influential at Old Trafford as Dein is at Arsena.

As a vice-chairman of the elite G14 group and an FA council member, Gill has extensive experience of football administration beyond Old Trafford.

Gill will now work with the Premier League's other representatives; Dave Richards, Phil Gartside and Robert Coar, in promoting the league's interests on the FA board.

However, Dein will sit alongside Richards, Gartside and Gill on the less influential FA Council.

AZ Alkmaar 0-3 Arsenal
Arsenal warmed up for Tuesday's Champions League qualifier against Dinamo Zagreb with a convincing friendly win over AZ Alkmaar.

Gilberto put the visitors ahead on 34 minutes with a back-post header from Jose Antonio Reyes' free-kick.

Reyes was also involved in the second goal just after the break when his pass led to Emmanuel Adebayor slotting home after Gilberto's shot was parried.

Robin van Persie added the third from the penalty spot on 74 minutes.

Title: Candid Cole lost faith over Arsenal love of Henry
Post by: Andre on September 11, 2006, 09:14:48 AM
strikers is always get more love from the fans.

September 11, 2006

LONDON (AFP) - England full-back Ashley Cole has admitted that Arsenal's love for star striker Thierry Henry contributed to his decision to leave the club for Premiership champions Chelsea.

Cole said that while the club and its fans did everything to make sure Henry stayed at Highbury, he felt like the "invisible man".

The 25-year-old left-back also revealed how he 'haggled' over 5,000 pounds (9,300 dollars) after Arsenal had dropped from their original weekly salary offer, and had his loyalty questioned by the club's backroom staff.
    
However, in an extract from his book serialised in The Times, the difference in how he was treated compared to Henry appeared to be one of the main reasons for him to seek a transfer.

"The club made Thierry feel wanted and special, wooing him, wining and dining him, speaking in public about how much they want him to stay, going on a deliberate charm offensive," said Cole.

"But me? I didn't have one dinner, one meeting or one phone call from anyone. That's not sour grapes, it's just a sad truth. The truth is that the Gunners had done nothing all season to hold on to me."

He added: "My worst fears were confirmed when, as Thierry and I sat in the centre circle after the final whistle, his name was sung from the rooftops while my contribution was recognised by a deafening silence.

"As his chants faded away we waited for mine. And we waited. And there was nothing. 'They're not bothered about me', I said, resigned to the fact. It was like I was the invisible man."

Cole was offered a new 60,000 pounds (112,000 dollars) a week deal in 2004 but when negotiations opened, the figure had dropped by 5,000 pounds, with the defender adding: "At a board meeting held two days before our 1-0 away defeat at Bolton in January, it was decided the maximum offer should be 55,000 pounds a week.

"I don't believe the board gave a damn about keeping me. It preferred to haggle over a difference of 5,000."

Cole's relationship with the club deteriorated to the point of fitness coach Tony Colbert questioned whether he was telling the truth about a thigh injury.

He added: "That's when he said it, 'what do you expect me to do, Ash, when you tell me you're okay and then come in here like you've just been shot? Be honest with me, are you just making out that it's worse than it actually is because you've got an eye on the World Cup?'

"That was it. I blew my lid. 'What!' I shouted, barely able to keep a lid on it, 'I need to play for Arsenal to go to the World Cup, so why would I hold back? The more I hold back, the less chance I've got of going to Germany! And you are insulting me'.

"For me it was one more person at the club doubting my loyalty. And it was the final straw."

M Fabregas re-signs with Arsenal
 
October 19, 2006
LONDON (Ticker) - Cesc Fabregas has signed his new eight-year contract with Arsenal.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger revealed last month the 19-year-old Spain midfielder was set to agree to a new deal to keep him at the north London club until 2014.

Fabregas, who joined Arsenal from Barcelona three years ago, had been linked with a move to Real Madrid but had stated his intention to stay at the Emirates Stadium.

ADVERTISEMENT
 
 
"I am so happy here and I am delighted to have signed this new contract that will keep me at the club for years to come," Fabregas told the club's official web site. "I wanted to pay back the club, especially Arsene Wenger, for the support and faith he has shown in me.

"What is important now is for the team to realize its potential and win trophies. That is our main aim, that is my aim as well."

Fabregas' agent, Joseba Diaz, had earlier told Spanish web site sport.es that the midfielder had put pen to paper.

"It is a fabulous contract for the player and also for the club," Diaz said. "Cesc feels very happy with how much Arsenal value him and in the knowledge that Arsenal are going to build their future around him."

Title: Arsenal go Top!
Post by: Bitter on March 05, 2007, 06:58:15 AM
Arsenal go top as Boca are humbled
http://edition.cnn.com/2007/SPORT/football/03/05/argentina.boca/

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- Boca Juniors suffered a shock 3-0 home defeat by San Lorenzo in the Argentine Clausura championship and their great rivals River Plate lost 2-1 to modest Argentinos Juniors on Sunday.

Humble Arsenal took full advantage by beating Velez Sarsfield 3-1 to go top with maximum points from their four games.

San Lorenzo, thumped 7-1 at home by Boca Juniors in their last meeting, stunned the Bombonera stadium when Diego Rivero broke down the right and crossed for Ezequiel Lavezzi to head in a goal after 23 minutes.

Boca playmaker Juan Roman Riquelme, who had an otherwise quiet game, hit the crossbar with a free kick before half-time but his side were in more trouble when Clemente Rodriguez was sent off four minutes into the second half.

Gaston Fernandez fired the second in the 66th minute and Andres Silvera rifled in the third from 12 metres five minutes later.

"The way we played was marvelous," San Lorenzo coach Ramon Diaz told reporters.

San Lorenzo, with 10 points from four games, moved up to second and Boca, with seven points, dropped to seventh.

River, who went into their match with three wins in three games, looked set to maintain their record when Marco Ruben fired through the legs of goalkeeper Marcelo Pontiroli in the 18th minute.

But Sebastian Carrera headed Argentinos level eight minutes later and Gabriel Hauche fired the winner eight minutes into the second half after the River defense failed to clear.
Floodlight failure

Shortly afterwards, play was delayed for nearly half an hour by a floodlight failure.

Second-half goals from Lucas Valdemarin and Carlos Castiglione gave Arsenal victory over Velez. The teams were level at halftime after Pablo Sebastian Garnier gave Arsenal an early lead and Mariano Uglessich levelled three minutes before the break.

Champions Estudiantes won 2-1 at Belgrano as 36-year-old Jose Luis Calderon scored a stoppage-time winner.

Pablo Piatti, 17, had given Estudiantes a first-half lead and Matias Oyola equalized in the 56th minute.

Jorge Burruchaga's Independiente continued their unhappy run as they lost 2-1 at Banfield despite taking a 34th-minute lead through Juan Eluchans.

Banfield's Javier Villareal and Carlos Salvatierra scored in the last 15 minutes to leave Independiente 19th with one point.

Independiente's arch-rivals Racing Club also remained winless after losing 1-0 at home to Newell's Old Boys.

At the end of the day...

Arsenal need a proven goalscorer who could score 20+ a season

The supporting striker have to score 12+

and the midfield have to chip in with about 10 goals from the 4-5 men running the show.

All big teams with any sort of title ambition have the above.

I still find we need a good goalkeeper and a good central defensive midfielder with steel to cover Gilberto Silva.

We have the pretty beat and flick men.

Adebayor have to learn the art of scoring goals and Van persie have a real task ahead of him.

We need to buy a Big fwd and a Big defensive midfielder.

But once Wenger is there...we have plenty hope.

Appiah Linked To Arsenal Move
Ghanaian midfielder Stephen Appiah who looks set to leave Turkish club Fenerbahce has been linked with a move to Arsenal.
 
The inspirational midfielder has spent two seasons in Turkey after moving from Italian side Juventus and had made it clear that he is looking forward to move to England's Premiership this summer.

English Premiership club West Ham United are believed to have led the chase for Appiah but latest reports have now linked the 26-year-old to the Gunners.

The player himself showed interest in the West Ham deal and had told The Sun: “I am very angry about stories saying I want to stay at Fenerbahce indefinitely.

"West Ham have expressed strong interest in me and I think Fenerbahce will have to listen to their offer.

"It is my ambition to play in the Premier League.”

Arsenal are now tipped to win a race with both West Ham and German club Schalke for the Ghanaian.

A friend of the player is quoted in the News of the World as saying: “Arsenal are aware they will have to pay £6million - £8million for Stephen. That price was talked about last January with Arsenal and it really won’t be an issue.”

Appiah will bring back some steel to that defensive midfiled since losing Viera.
btw Lundberg to Westham.

Denilson (the U-23 Brazilian center midfielder) played well last year and will step up.

Hleb is now fully acclimatised to the English league so look for big things from him too.

Has Rosicky even started to show what he can do?  Watch this space.

Wenger signed the Polish keeper Lucasz Fabianski.  If anyone knows talent it is Arsegne.  Lehmann has one more good year left in him. 

With all that being said.....

We need a central defender in the worst way.  THAT is what I am concerned about.

I would like to presribe a dose of reality.....

-------------------------------------
The only proven star player left on that side now is Fabregas. You need stars to win you trophies.

A good defense is always more important than a potent attack.  Central defense of Gallas and Toure are a good pairing, but the cover is poor. Senderos and Djorou hardly inspire confidence, and in a long 60+ game season, good cover is needed in these key positions.

Arsenal is making no solid investment in the team geared at pushing for the league title, whilst all other teams are strengthening their teams. Gallas and all done start griping already.

This is Lehmann fall off year since he really eh have nothing to play for this year. He old plus international career over. Look out for some howlers early in de season before Fabianski step in.

The club is in disarray. The board dont know if they selling the team. Wenger won't commit and still sour over the David Dein issue. The franchise player Henry buss out. All in all, it ent no feel-good factor around Highbury these days.

Wenger doesn't understand the value of experience in a squad, hence his 1 yr contract after 30 policy.. Looks like Ljungberg out de door next once again devoiding de side of maturity and experience..

Arsenal will be competing for 4th/5th place this year
----------------------


Now I advise to take this dose twice daily with meals to prevent recurrence of hallucinations about pushing for any titles this year. Take as advised and see me again next May.

The Appiah rumor was around before the start of last season too. And reports are claiming that Appiah has turned down other moves because he wants to move to Arsenal in particular.

I agree with Jahyouth that central defense is Arsenal's weak area.  End of last season they were even using Gilberto as a center back. IMO, Senderos and Djourou are not quality enough cover. Reports say that Sagna can play across the back line (dont know enough about him to comment), so maybe thats an option since Arsenal already has Eboue, Hoyte and Gilbert in the right back position.

West Ham signs Ljungberg from Arsenal

http://msn.foxsports.com/soccer/story/7046354

LONDON (AP) - West Ham signed Fredrik Ljungberg from Arsenal on Monday, ending the Sweden captain's nine-year stay in north London.

The 30-year-old midfielder had been Arsenal's longest-serving player, scoring 72 goals in 328 games, but started just 16 Premier League matches last season because of injury.

The Hammers agreed to pay a fee that could rise to as much as 3 million pounds (US$6.2 million; €4.7 million), with Ljungberg signing a four-year contract.

Ljungberg becomes the second high-profile player to leave the Gunners since the end of last season, following Thierry Henry, and becomes West Ham's fifth acquisition since it narrowly avoided demotion from the Premier League.

"Two years ago when I signed my last contract, we talked a lot about the future," Ljungberg said. "We talked about buying top players ... but that never really happened.

"When Thierry left this summer, it felt a little bit like the end."


West Ham has signed Craig Bellamy, Scott Parker, Julien Faubert and Richard Wright for close to 20 million pounds (US$41.2 million; €29.8 million) since it beat Manchester United on the last day of the season to secure its topflight place.

Ljungberg joined Arsenal in September 1998 from Swedish club Halmstad for 3 million pounds (US$6.2 million; €4.7 million) and scored on his debut as a substitute against Manchester United.

He twice won the Premier League and won three FA Cups with the Gunners.

"I'd been there nine years, almost 10 years," Ljungberg said. "It's a big thing for me, but I want to go forward."

I have always said the sign of a true fan is to stick it out through thick and thin.

ALL big sides have had periods of a slump in form, where they didn't win anything, where they were rebuilding. Anybody who says otherwise only following de EPL since 1999.

There was a time when Man U was in disarray and they wanted Fergie head. Allyuh forget bout dat? They wasn't winning boo!

Chelsea was all but gone from de top flight in de EPL until Abrahamovic buy dem, and dey get big money to spend.

Even Liverpool, that great champions league winner has had some quiet years. More than most of the other top teams tbh.

Like allyuh forget just 2004 Arsenal won de double, and without losing ah damn game all season. Allyuh memory short.

Arsenal will rise again. They will get de big names again. They will win things again. Life is a cycle and our time will come again.

Wenger knows when to fold em.

The decline of Ljungberg
By Duncan Alexander -  Created on 23 Jul 2007
PREMIERSHIP SEASON 2007-08
Arsenal are 40/1 to win the Premiership and the Carling Cup. Click for more special markets!

Fredrik Ljungberg
The news that long-serving Arsenal midfielder Freddie Ljungberg has left the club to move to West Ham United was not unexpected but it will be a sad day nonetheless for many Gunners fans.

The Swedish international had racked up nine seasons under the tutelage of Arsene Wenger but leaves just a year before he would have been due a testimonial.

But perhaps it was the perfect time for Ljungberg to depart, before his reputation at the North London club had became permanently sullied, for the past two campaigns have rarely seen him hit the heights that were once his trademark.

  1998-99 1999-00* 2000-01 2001-02 2002-03 2003-04 2004-05 2005-06 2006-07
Appearances 16 26 30 25 20 30 26 25 18
Goals 1 6 6 12 6 4 10 1 0
Goals/game 0.06 0.23 0.20 0.48 0.30 0.13 0.38 0.04 0.00
Shooting Accuracy 53% 63% 55% 57% 67% 51% 70% 54% 50%
Goal Assists 0 2 6 4 1 5 8 3 0

Indeed, in his final two terms at Arsenal, Ljungberg scored only one goal, a paltry return from a player who twice racked double figures in a single season.

Interestingly, Ljungberg's shooting accuracy never fell below 50% in his time at Arsenal but the goals simply dried up in his latter years.

2006-07 also saw him fail to create a Premiership goal for the first time since his debut campaign.

Ljungberg also managed a mere 18 games last season, only one more than Thierry Henry, another Gunners deserter this summer.

And while Henry will plan to add to his glittering reputation at Barcelona, the feeling persists that Ljungberg has used his fabled sense of timing to make his move at exactly the right moment.

Imagine Trinidad in an annual Concacaf league. We beat the US both times. Draw with Mexico both times. But we go and drop a set of points against St Kitts, Barbados etc (in games that we should have won) and end up finishing 3rd in league. Half the season Stern was injured. And Kenwyne who had step up and was scoring real goals was injured for a large part of the season too. After the tournament Stern retire.

What you think would be the story? Men would be saying that once we put away the smaller sides we could win the tournament next year. We show that we have the quality when we beat the States. Yea, Stern retire but we miss him for half the season and we still showed class when he wasnt there.

But if is Arsenal you talking about in the same situation, men bawling you delusional.

I am quietly confident that Arsenal CAN challenge but I will wait and see before I start giving man talk. Cause the way I see it Arsenal fans who saying Arsenal will do this and that, eh no different from Man U and Chelsea fans who saying Arsenal will not do this and that.

Wenger Explains Gallas Captain Decision
Manager Arsene Wenger has explained why William Gallas will become the new captain of Arsenal following the departure of Thierry Henry.


 
The Frenchman has acted as skipper for much of the pre-season, leading the young side to a number of impressive wins.

Manager Arsene Wenger has explained why the centre-back has been named full-time captain.

“[The captain] will be William Gallas,” he told Arsenal’s official website. “There will also be two vice-captains, Kolo Toure and Gilberto.
 
“I feel centre back is always the best position to lead on the pitch and it is Gallas who has more experience at the back. But Gilberto has always been a great captain and Kolo Toure has a stature too.
 
“As well I made a decision that I want all those experienced players, along with Jens Lehmann, to be involved off the pitch. Players like Jens and Gilberto can play the role of a club captain.

“They can have a very strong impact mentally on the team. I want them to take on that responsibility.”

Speakin to my pops yesterday who live 10 mins away from d Emirates and inhaling the same fumes the rest of yall do, he think d team safe and will b surely top 2. I on d other hand takin note of what Mourinho say which is that Totenham is now one of d big 5 and what that means to me is one big team not makin Champions League, it kinda early but my pre-season vote is Arsenal.

He still needs to learn how to balance ball control with his speed, because he still has a tendency to get excited and try to blow past defenders, but forget the ball. SWP is a regular perpetrator of this.

Bentner will have a good season.  Arsegne say that since last month.

Sagna had an impressive debut.  he seems very solid.  Good going forward too.

ah eh even talking bout v. Persie

Hleb like he come to ball this season.  He deserve that goal today.

Rosicky need to step up his game a notch.

Clichy is an up and coming Ca$hley Cole.  He holding the left back nice, and giving the opposition problems going forward as well.

Two center backs hold nice today, but then is Fulham so we'll see

Look for Diaby to play in away fixtures.  the man is a Vieira clone

Lehman begging for a bench.  Remember we just buy a keeper eh

Good contribributions also expected from a youth man from Mexico named Vela who is a striker, and the Brazilian Under-21 captain Denilson (we know him already from the League Cup run last year).

Injured Lehmann out for two weeks, says Wenger

LONDON, Aug 23 (Reuters) - Jens Lehmann has injured his
Achilles tendon and will miss Saturday's home clash with English premier league leaders Manchester City, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said on Thursday.
The goalkeeper aggravated a chronic injury during Germany's 2-1 win over England at Wembley on Wednesday, Wenger told a news conference.
Wenger said: "Jens is out and he will miss two weeks, I think. Maybe more. I don't know. He is going to see a specialist in Germany tomorrow. He had this injury before but it has got much worse."
Wenger said that Spaniard Manuel Almunia would replace Lehmann on Saturday.

Are The Gunners Ready To Step Up?
http://www.goal.com/en/Articolo.aspx?ContenutoId=395362

After a largely disappointing season, a summer of turmoil and disruption behind the scenes, and the departure of one of the Premier League’s greatest ever players, have Arsene’s talented ‘youngsters’ moved any closer to fulfilling their obvious potential? Goal.com's Jamie Obertelli analyses Arsenal's prospects...
Three wins and a draw from Arsenal’s opening four games represents a significantly better start to the season than the Gunners managed at this stage last term. Wenger’s men have yet to hit their stride, winning their domestic games by the odd late goal and failing to produce the kind of attacking football their fans have come to expect.
 
Arsenal’s footballing ability has never been called into question under Wenger’s tenure, but recently rival managers and players have had more success against them when adopting a more ‘physical’ approach. Teams like Bolton and Blackburn have picked up points by unsettling Arsenal’s more technically gifted players, and without the likes of Patrick Vieira in the line-up, Arsenal have often been labeled a soft touch.

What is significant so far this term is that the Gunners have managed to pick up vital points while playing poorly, a skill that was lacking last term and an ability that will prove vital if they are to achieve success this campaign. Henry’s departure seems to have galvanized the club’s young players who now look more prepared to scrap and fight for each other.
 
With Van Persie spearheading the Arsenal attack this season, it seems Wenger is still to make up his mind who will be his regular partner up front. Adebayor played his first game of the season against Manchester City on Saturday and lacked sharpness after coming back from injury, Eduardo Da Silva has shown promise but will need time to settle in and Walcott seems set for a role on the flanks for the time being.

One player that has shown real potential is Nicklas Bendtner. While the young Dane has much to learn, his enthusiasm, strength and aerial power offer Arsenal another option. The Gunners will need to find a regular partner for Van Persie, with Wenger announcing his intention to field two strikers rather than having Hleb in an advanced central position.
 
Many fans were somewhat perplexed by the Arsenal manager’s decision to snap up Bacary Sagna after the club had just secured both Eboue and Hoyte on long term deals. It now seems Eboue will be fielded on the right wing, allowing Sagna to slot in at full-back. The former Auxerre man has been a revelation since his move, adapting to the physical nature of the Premier League with remarkable ease.

Sagna is quick and strong, more defensively sound than Eboue and has shown he can also join in Arsenal’s attack, making good overlapping runs and delivering good crosses. However, Eboue has yet to flourish in his new role. The Ivorian has so far looked like a right-back fielded out of position and time will only tell if Wenger’s experiment will pay off.
 
Much has been expected of the talented Theo Walcott following a promising pre-season back from shoulder surgery. The former Southampton player has pace in abundance but so far has failed to show any real skill with the ball at his feet. He seems unable to use his physical attributes to escape his marker and has been guilty of making some poor choices with his distribution. Whilst Theo is still young, can Arsenal afford to wait for him to develop? Wenger has fielded Walcott on the wings but many fans feel he would be better deployed up front in the middle, where he has shown in the past that he can make good runs off the ball.
 
Flamini has decided to remain at the club after widespread speculation the Frenchman was set to leave in the summer in a bid to play first team football. Whilst most fans will agree that Flamini is not technically gifted enough, or physically imposing enough for a regular first team spot, his recent performances have highlighted his importance to the club. Flamini displays drive, commitment and desire every game and has actually pitched in with some important goals during his time at Arsenal. Add to that the versatility of being able to slot in at either full-back position and it is clear why Wenger decided to keep him.
 
One player that could hold the key to the future of this Arsenal side is Abou Diaby. The Frenchman returned from a career-threatening injury last term, but has so far failed to hold down a regular place in the side despite showing flashes of brilliance. It is somewhat perplexing that Wenger continually fields Diaby on the left wing when his talents are clear for fans to see when played in his favoured central position. The former Auxerre youth’s style of play and gangly frame reminds many of a certain Patrick Vieira, although Diaby seems to have more potential to develop the offensive side of his game.
 
Whilst there is no doubting the quality of Kolo Toure and newly appointed captain William Gallas, can the duo co-exist as a centre-back pairing? Both players seem far too alike and they have yet to convince when partnered together. The pair would benefit from a more traditional defender that can defend his box and clear his lines, someone committed and good in the air. Gallas had such a partner during his Chelsea days in the form of John Terry, and the Frenchman has yet to show the same level of performance since his move to the Emirates. Is this a coincidence? The closest player to Terry that Wenger currently has at his disposal is Senderos, who has yet to fully convince he can recapture the form that hastened Sol Campbell’s exit from the club. 
 
There is still so much uncertainty surrounding Arsenal’s season. Will Rosicky manage to play back-to-back games? Will Theo come good? How will Da Silva settle in? Can Robin Van Persie pick up where Thierry Henry left off? Will Arsenal finally learn how to defend from set pieces? If Wenger can field a settled side week-in-week-out, Gunners fans may well see the beginning of a new winning side and a new chapter in the Arsenal story.
Title: Re: ARSENAL FOREVER
Post by: Observer on August 27, 2007, 09:49:45 AM
I like this article. If any coach can convert someone it is Wenger. Look for Eboue to learn the position and be effective. Once this happens it will free up Hleb to play behind Van Per much like Bergkam. For me this is Hleb's best position and that way he can thread balls left, right and central, plus attack from deep. Buh say wha I eh Wenger  :-\

Lehman on his way out? No achilles problem, but he is the achilles heel of Arsenal right now.

Lehmann Holds Crisis Talks With Wenger
Reports in the morning press suggest Jens Lehmann’s time as an Arsenal player is almost up, after the goalkeeper held showdown talks with manager Arsene Wenger yesterday.

The German is guilty of making two horrendous errors in the first three games of the season, both of which could have cost the Gunners vital points.

Arsenal’s number one gained international recognition during the 2005-06 season when his goalkeeping heroics helped Arsenal to a European record of clean sheets, as well as performing admirably for Germany in the World Cup.

However in the first game of the season against Fulham, Lehmann failed to deal with a back pass and allowed striker David Healy to slot home from close range after barely a minute of play.

Thankfully for the 37-year-old two late goals won the game for Arsenal and sparred the hapless keeper’s blushes.

During the next game in the Premiership against Blackburn Rovers, Arsenal were 1-0 up when Lehmann fumbled a tame shot from David Dunn, the ball slipping through his hands and into the back of the net, and the Gunners going on to draw thew game 1-1.

Lehmann was omitted from the squad that beat Manchester City at the weekend, however according to Arsenal it was due to an Achilles injury rather than his poor run of form.

But reports in the Daily Star suggest that the keeper was furious at being axed from the squad, saying he was fit to play before storming out of the training ground.

According to the paper, Lehmann held crunch talks with Arsene Wenger over his future, the results of which may be seen before the transfer window closes.

Nothing like a lil competition to get them men shooting.

Arsenal trio gunning for goals
Rosicky backs himself in bet

By Steven Morrison   Last updated: 6th September 2007

 
Arsenal's midfield stars
Arsenal playmaker Tomas Rosicky is backing himself to be the Gunners' top midfield goalscorer this season.


The Czech international is so confident of netting the most goals that he has entered into a bet with team-mates Cesc Fabregas and Alexander Hleb.

The young trio are hoping to contribute more to the score sheet this campaign, after the departure of the club's all-time leading goalscorer Thierry Henry in the summer.


Self-confidence

And Rosicky, who has 17 international goals to his name, has backed himself to score more than his midfield team-mates.

"We have talked about scoring goals in midfield - me, Cesc and Alex Hleb," Rosicky told Arsenal's official website.

Currently, Cesc Fabregas leads the way with the bet. However Rosicky expects to end the season victorious.

"I hope I can win it," he added. "It includes all competitions - Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup. When you look at those competitions last year I would have been the winner.

"It would be nice to win again but the most important thing is that we win the games. It doesn't really matter who scores."


Improvement
Rosicky is also looking to improve on Arsenal's trophy-less season last year, and admits the team were disappointed with their achievements in the previous campaign.

"Of course it was a disappointing season for us last time," he said. "We achieved just the minimum of what we wanted to achieve.

"On the other side, personally I felt I integrated into this team very well and it will only be better this time.

Premier League leader Arsenal no longer needs Thierry Henry

By Robert Millward, AP Soccer Writer
PARIS — Thierry Henry's move to Barcelona has paid off.
For Arsenal, that is.


Leading the English Premier League by two points, the Gunners are doing just fine without their former superstar.

The French striker, who established himself as one of the game's greats in a Gunners shirt, now wears the blue and maroon stripes of Barcelona. While the Spanish club has stuttered to one win in three games and already trails rival Real Madrid by four points, Arsenal looks even stronger without Henry.

"It was important that we started the season well after losing Thierry Henry in the summer," Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said after his team's 3-1 victory at north London neighbor Tottenham on Saturday. "And while a player like that will never be forgotten, we are moving on now."

"Of course, we have not forgotten about Thierry but we have shown that the team is blossoming and growing," Wenger said in a message to Gunners fans. "That was planned, of course, but you never know how fast it will happen."

Although Henry set a goal-scoring record for Arsenal (226 goals in 364 games) and set up countless goals for his teammates, there was a feeling around the club he left at the right time.

Maybe the Gunners became too reliant on Henry. And maybe Henry became too big for Arsenal.

The striker's body language suggested he was unhappy with the club's apparent lack of ambition in the transfer market. He admitted he was also disappointed that vice chairman David Dein was elbowed out of the club because the board disliked his support for American businessman Stan Kroenke, who wanted to buy the Gunners.

When Henry left to join Barcelona June 22, it seemed as if the Gunners had lost their prize asset.

Not so. The real asset is still with the club - and he used to be on Barcelona's books.


Cesc Fabregas has the potential to be even better than Henry. He splits defenses with his passes, is always available to receive the ball from a teammate and reads the game so well he is often starts and finishes moves to score from close range.

"If it becomes hectic he keeps his head and cools the game down when it becomes a bit nervous," Wenger said. "Suddenly he finds a good pass and gets you out of tight situations."

Against the Spurs on Saturday, the Spaniard put Arsenal ahead with a long bending strike into the top corner for his fifth goal of the season. The Gunners went to the top of the standings, two points ahead of Manchester City and main rivals Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea.

Fabregas acknowledges Henry's contribution to Arsenal but now believes the Gunners are in better overall shape to win titles.

"Thierry was an important player for a lot of years, but now he's not here, he's gone," he said. "We have to play more as a team like we're doing now. We're playing more collectively, more as a team and this is important.

"Scoring late goals shows we're strong physically and stay in games until the end, which is very important to develop spirit in the team. We never give up."

While Fabregas celebrated his fifth goal of the season - and third in the league - Henry is still looking for his first Spanish League goal for Barcelona. He made little impact in a 0-0 tie at Osasuna on Sunday. Even the Barcelona fans jeered their team at the end.

So it's a neat twist that a player Arsenal persuaded to leave Barcelona at age 16 for no transfer fee is now making the same impact as the star it sold to the Spanish club for $33 million.

Walcott had a poor game today. Lacked the composure that the rest of the team showed.

Soccernet - Arsenal profits to provide £70m transfer warchest (http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story?id=466204&campaign=rss&source=soccernet&cc=5901)

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been promised a mammoth £70million transfer kitty after Arsenal revealed themselves to be one of Europe's richest clubs.

Figures unveiled this morning show the Gunners' move to the Emirates Stadium has driven a near 50% increase in turnover to more than £200million for the year ending May 31, 2007.

That sum means they are only edged into second place in the continent's money league by Real Madrid.

But with operating profit of £51.2million, up an amazing 274%, the Premier League club now have a level of profitability far in excess of Real.

Match-day revenues of £3.1million per game at their new 60,000 home are double those generated at Highbury, and have seen the Gunners leapfrog main domestic rivals Manchester United and Chelsea - whose respective turnover for the same period was £167.8m and £152.8m.

The revelation of Arsenal's wealth is an ample response to those critics who questioned the effect the cost of relocation to Ashburton Grove would have on the club, and in particular Wenger's transfer funds.

But after reiterating that Wenger did not spend all his budget this summer, delighted managing director Keith Edelman claimed the Frenchman would now have previously unheard of sums available to reinforce his squad.

'I think we are in a very good position,' Edelman said. 'Clearly Arsene's performance and the team's performance on the pitch has been outstanding, obviously backed up by our very strong financial position.

'We gave Arsene a budget in the summer and he didn't even spend all of it on transfers and hopefully we'll be able to carry that forward into future years.'

He added: 'We have got plenty of financial firepower to makes the transfers Arsene wants to make.

'We had over £70million of cash at the end of the year and if Arsene wants to spend that money we will make it available.'

The results posted this morning have been achieved despite the lack of a mega-rich foreign owner, the source to which most rivals have turned to increase their clout.

With Red and White Holdings Limited, backed by Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov, recently increasing their stake in the club to around 21%, rumours have abounded of a possible takeover bid.

But Edelman insists the results show there is no reason to change the way in which the club is run.

'We think it's very important as a board that the club develops revenues it generates itself and is not dependent on people putting money in every year, because that's not a very stable basis on which to run a club,' he told the Arsenal's website.

'We regard ourselves as custodians of the club and fans as well. It's important that the club does have a stable financial base.'

He added: 'If you look at the shareholders and the look at the board, we are all here because we love the club. Yes we want to run it well as a business, but only because we want to be a great club.

'That could be contrasted with what could be called financial owners, who come to purchase clubs to make money out of them and they don't have that affinity to be a rabid fan - to live, breathe and eat Arsenal Football Club.'

With the new Premier League TV deal yet to be reflected in their figures and the Gunners also set to launch their own TV channel in the new year, it seems everything is in place for the financial success to continue.

I believe history will prove Arsene Wenger to be among the most astute and visionary managers in the history of the game.

His books should be must reads for all aspiring football coaches.  His approach to things like Nutrition, Philosophy, Psychology etc in football has revolutionized the English game and indeed, helped largely to bring it, kicking and screaming along the way, to a degree of professionalism that was unheard of prior to his arrival on the scene.

Everybody kicking Chelsea when they down.

It is interesting to note that it was Wenger who set out the blueprint for Arsenal's future telling them that they had to  build a new stadium. This is similar to Ferguson at United who has driven the stadium expansion over the last 15 years, the scouting network, the training facility etc.

In both cases the club's finances are built on the manager's success on the field and his input off it, giving managers' total control over footballing matters, especially transfers. No director of football BS. The result is that even in rough times the board undertsands that you don't get in the manager's way. You give them time to work it out because if you hire someone to do a job you have to stand back and let them get on with it. Both Wenger and Ferguson have had lean spells, with several trophyless seasons, Mourinho didn't even have one trophyless season but he was under pressure.

The Chelsea model is different. The club's finances are not dependent on on-field success because they have no need to turn a profit. That is not a sustainable long-term model and it certainly won't Ownership believes that if it their money going in they should exert a greater role, despite the fact that they have less football knowledge than people who actually have a career in coaching and a history of success.

Just goes to show what a joke it was over there, despite the new money they still not ready. But say what it wasn't any better under Ken Bates so the current situation is still an improvement for what was a small broken club trying to compete with the big boys.

Arsenal named England's 'richest' club
 
September 24, 2007
By Jim van Wijk and Rich Jones Special to PA SportsTicker

LONDON (Ticker) - Arsenal revealed its status as Britain's richest soccer club on Monday after new figures show the club's move to Emirates Stadium helped increase turnover to more than $400 million.

The report - for the year ending May 31, 2007 - also revealed group operating profits up by an astonishing 274 percent, to $103.7 million.
These well exceed the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea - whose respective turnover for the same period was $339.8 million and $309.4 million.

Monday's announcement also rockets Arsenal into the same financial league as Real Madrid, whose turnover was $409 million for the 2005-06 season.

"The best way that Arsenal can continue to deliver success is by maintaining a business that pays its own way," Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood said. "This philosophy helped establish our objectives for the club's move away from Highbury and Emirates Stadium now provides Arsenal with the increased income, profitability, cash generation and firm financial foundations from which we will continue to build trophy winning Arsenal teams for many years to come."

Arsenal's move to its new 60,000-seat home at Ashburton Grove from Highbury has proved more than a financially sound decision, with the long-term debt related to the move having also been refinanced into bonds which provide "a significant reduction" in annual service costs.

The club generated match day revenues of $183.5 million in their first season, representing some $6.3 million per game - more than double that of Highbury. Meanwhile, some 91 percent of the units at "The Stadium - Highbury Square" redevelopment are already pre-sold, with final completion sales expected to comfortably exceed $600 million.

Arsenal - currently in first place in the Barclays Premier League - saw its cash balances up to $149.6 million, from $72.1 million in 2006.

The figures are "before player trading and depreciation," and as such do not take into account the $32 million sale of Thierry Henry to Barcelona during the summer or other recent transfer dealings as manager Arsene Wenger reshaped his squad.

They would also more than backup the stance of the current board that the club does not need a wealthy backer to compete with the best.

Russian businessman Alisher Usmanov increased his shareholding in the club last week via Red and White Holdings Limited to around 21 percent, which makes the investment company Arsenal's second-largest shareholder behind director Danny Fiszman. American billionaire Stan Kroenke remains another significant investor, with a stake of just over 12 percent.

"We have always pursued, and intend to continue with, a policy of re-investing profits and surplus cash into team development," Hill-Wood said. "Emirates Stadium now provides the club with the firm financial foundations from which we will continue to build trophy winning Arsenal teams for many years to come."

The news means that Arsenal now has the "financial firepower" to compete with any club in the transfer market, according to managing director Keith Edelman.

"We have got plenty of financial firepower to make the transfers Arsene wants to make," Edelman declared. "We had over ($140 million) of cash at the end of the year and if Arsene wants to spend that money we will make it available."

"I think we are in a very good position," said Edelman on Arsenal TV Online. "Clearly Arsene's performance and the team's performance on the pitch has been outstanding, obviously backed up by our very strong financial position."

The results posted have been achieved despite the lack of a mega-rich foreign owner, the source to which most rivals have turned to increase their clout. Although Usmanov and Kroenke have significant holdings, Edelman insists the results show there is no reason to change the way in which the club is run.

"We think it's very important as a board that the club develops revenues it generates itself and is not dependent on people putting money in every year, because that's not a very stable basis on which to run a club," Edelman said. "We regard ourselves as custodians of the club and fans as well. It's important that the club does have a stable financial base."

Edelman believes that the club's success is a direct correlation to the passion the shareholders and the board share for Arsenal soccer.

"If you look at the shareholders and the look at the board, we are all here because we love the club," Edelman said. "Yes we want to run it well as a business, but only because we want to be a great club. That could be contrasted with what could be called financial owners, who come to purchase clubs to make money out of them and they don't have that affinity to be a rabid fan - to live, breathe and eat Arsenal Football Club."

i still not convinced..

i think their early season form also have something to do with a nice fixture schedule that help them to build up momentum..  fabregas has been outstanding too..

case in point, spurs get it rough with their schedule by having to play some big sides early, and some tough sides away from home, so they couldnt build up momentum..

i want to see this arsenal side pull points off liverpool, man utd and chelsea and beat the physical sides away from home like aston villa, everton and blackburn before i will say they are title contenders..

fari last year Liverpool, ManU and Chelsea were not the problem for Arsenal. Just look at their results against those team. The problems were those games against teams at the bottom half of the table. I still say Arsenal needs another central defender & a quality goalkeeper. Look at what Van De Saar and Peter Chec are to ManU & Chelsea. those teams are hard to break down as it is and when teams do manage to get through, you still faced with outstanding goalkeepers.

My impression is that last year Arsenal needed space to play. Any team that came in to play an attacking game was in trouble. They had problems with teams that played bunker defense and counter-attacked. They were also pegged as a "finesse" team that could be roughed up.

This season, apart from being more comfortable in the Emirates, they are more decisive in front of goal and seem to have come to grips with the physical play. There are still problems in defense. But now at least you know you won't get any madness from Lehman.  - And now we know they could buy defenders in January.

omar arsenal drew with blackburn away in a game that could easily have been one were it not for a clanger from lehman.  this season bolton has no big sam so they are definitely not going to be a bogey team for us. chelsea are reeling and very vulnerable i feel we could get at least 4 points from them if not more.  liverpool is beatable, especially if benitez keeps rotating his squad as he is doing.  i not shouting glory yet but i am pleased with the season so far.

i not counting that blackburn game because it was early in the season when teams now getting their game together.. yes it was a good result but it was by no means a game that arsenal dominated..  i could point out the samba header that was cleared off the line, and a few other chances that fell blackburn's way..

fact of the matter is they still have a soft belly... they need to invest in that central defence, (cause senderos is la la to the power of 10, and makeshift gilberto dont cut it), and need a solid goalkeeper (never was convinced by almunia).. the good thing is that they seem to have a bit more steel in midfield for dem rough and tumble games, with diaby fit and coming thru, and then diarra (makalele prodigy) in de mix...

like i said.. when i see them deal with the sides i call there, and also take points off the big 3, then i will say yes this side have a shot at the title.. it dont take much for the wheels to fall off..

ps: underestimate chelsea at your own peril

I think beating the physical, mid-table teams away from home, as you mentioned in an earlier post, will be more of a test for Arsenal. last year Arsenal had the best head to head between the top 4. ManU won the title cuz they were consistent. They only were able to beat Liverpool and lost home and away to Arsenal last year in top 4 encounters.

In any case..Arsenal fans should feel good. Their team is playing the best football in the EPL and even if you think they haven't had the hardest schedule, you could only play what is in front of you
Title: Re: ARSENAL FOREVER
Post by: dinho on September 26, 2007, 06:40:04 AM
I was gonna start a new thread for this, but lemme not water down the board with any more EPL threads...

but here's why in my opinion, ARSENAL WILL NOT WIN THE EPL..

credit where credit is due they are playing the best football of the season to date.. but lets analyze the results so far...

12 Aug         FU(H) 2-1  - expected to win
19 Aug        BR(A) 1-1  - tough game away from home. good win
25 Aug        MC(H) 1-0  - tough win at home
2 Sep        PO(H) 3-1  - expected to win
15 Sep     TH(A) 3-1 - good win but spurs in commess.
22 Sep     DC(H) 5-0 - expected to win


right... so i counting the blackburn and man city games as the best results to date, with the london derby win against spurs for good measure even though we all know what going on with spurs.. but in them results, nowhere am i seeing where this side's mettle has been seriously tested..

now i think the credentials of this side will be tested from late october during this stretch of games...

28 Oct    Liverpool (A) - hardest fixture of season to date.
3 Nov    Man. United (H) -  top of table clash
12 Nov    Reading (A) - away to reading will be tough
24 Nov    Wigan (H) -  expected to win.
1 Dec    Aston Villa (A) - away to aston villa will be tough
8 Dec    Middlesbrough (A)  - away to boro will be tough, but expected to win
15 Dec    Chelsea (H)  -   top of table clash, hard fixture.

so after this stretch of games, then we will see where this arsenal side stand... and then most crucially, check out their late season schedule to close out..

22 Mar    Chelsea (A)  - away to chelsea, hard game
29 Mar    Bolton (A)  - away to bolton, hard game
5 Apr    Liverpool (H)  - liverpool title contender, hard game
12 Apr    Man. United (A)  - away to man utd, hard game
19 Apr    Reading (H)  -  expected to win, but could be tough with reading fighting relegation
26 Apr    Derby (A)  - expected to win, unless derby they still in with a chance of fighting relegation, in which case could be tough away
3 May    Everton (H) -  everton will be fighting for uefa cup. hard game
11 May    Sunderland (A) - sunderland will be fighting relegation, hard game


so i'm sorry to pour water on the expectations of the ecstatic arsenal fans.. but arsenal's sweet early season fixture schedule going to come back and bite dem in de ass during the run-in next year... and unless they invest in some central defenders in january, they could be found wanting in de late season when injuries start to take their toll...

if i were a betting man, my money would be on man utd or liverpool to win the prem, but at the same time, football is a funny game and u never know..

i am not worried at all.  so called physical teams this year have to watch out for diaby...the man is silk and steel. and if he ent dey is diarra or wild man song for them. with respect to omar's post i think that we could get at least 17 points from that stretch of games if not more. reason being that while yes we have had an easy run in this has allowed us to build up momentum.  (another win last night against a decent newcastle side)   let's not forget that this team has already beaten lazio, inter and ajax in pre season (some say that doesn't count but say what).  last season the problem was not converting the many chances we create...this season is bullet from all over (denilson scored a cracker last night i believe) so epl teams beware.

with respect to defensive injuries, i feel that any team that reach the final of the champions league with flamini at left back should be able to handle most epl teams home or away, once they stick to the game plan.

Alright Omar lemme answer yuh...yuh want to play miss cleo lemme refute them comments yuh have there

28 Oct    Liverpool (A) - hardest fixture of season to date...we drawing 0-0 or winning 1-0. Benitez rotating too much
3 Nov    Man. United (H) -  top of table clash...we whet them twice last yr and will do it again.
12 Nov    Reading (A) - away to reading will be tough....Them taking more wood than a eskimo fireplace. Dey cutarse booked

24 Nov    Wigan (H) -  expected to win.

1 Dec    Aston Villa (A) - away to aston villa will be tough...I could see a draw but we winning 1-0.

8 Dec    Middlesbrough (A)  - away to boro will be tough, but expected to win...Is about 3 southgate side getting. Once we handle downing that side cyar make a note.

15 Dec    Chelsea (H)  -   top of table clash, hard fixture....when the africans going on duty...Chelsea only have licks coming they way.

so after this stretch of games, then we will see where this arsenal side stand... and then most crucially, check out their late season schedule to close out..

22 Mar    Chelsea (A)  - away to chelsea, hard game We beating that like a bad stepchile

29 Mar    Bolton (A)  - away to bolton, hard game...d jumbie allardyce gorn and Anelka may not be there anymore

5 Apr    Liverpool (H)  - liverpool title contender, hard game...draw

12 Apr    Man. United (A)  - away to man utd, hard game.....beating dem in Old trafford.

19 Apr    Reading (H)  -  expected to win, but could be tough with reading fighting relegation...licks again they wouldnt even have a squad left.

26 Apr    Derby (A)  - expected to win, unless derby they still in with a chance of fighting relegation, in which case could be tough away...steupss....this is just another opportunity to put fabregas or adeybaor as yuh fantasy league captain to collect 40 points.

3 May    Everton (H) -  everton will be fighting for uefa cup. hard game..Nope everton is not the same as last yr...3 points surety for arsenal

11 May    Sunderland (A) - sunderland will be fighting relegation, hard game....steups....Welcome to the EPL...another game to put adeybayor as captain and get about 40 fantasy league points.


Omar Arsenal have only one hard game this season and is Liverpool. Once we get a proper ref vs Manu we winning comfortably.

All wenger need is a keeper and a new stopper and we good.

Eduardo go be poison come january and I like how diaby lookin.

Well. I don't come here much these days as I'm busy with other stuff so that may have to do with my ''silence'' I don't see how I could produce any ''noise'' when I'm here. Even when you made that post I was not here lmao not everyone is here at the same time.

As for your post, most people are going to is the negative when is not their team in the advance (a Key factor if anyone has studied Sport Psychology/Psychology) and your team personally has taken one of the biggest blows it could possibly have. Also Omar I'm saying you are Stupid because your not but don't you think that post is a bit of STATE THE OBVIOUS. A title takes hardwork and when your on top everyone wants to knock you down (that is the aim of the game of course so your team can get there) you've mentioned possibilities without realising Arsenal know they have to overcome that anyway, is a title meant to be a walkover? lol. ''ecstatic arsenal fans'' Well I said I'm pleased and ecstatic and please are not the same thing  ;)
People forget that Arsenal have one of the best records head to head amgost the top 4.

I've said from the beginning to my friends Arsenal will finish 3rd Minimum.

and yeah I agree Football does throw up Funny results from time to tome but be real if Arsenal did in the league I doubt it very much that many would think ''WHAT A SUPRISE? Arsenal in contention for a title and even possibly winning it!?!?!?  Never heard of that before!'' We all know it will be one for 3-4 teams and Arsenal is one of them for sure

I believe history will prove Arsene Wenger to be among the most astute and visionary managers in the history of the game.


Fuh real! De man real, real good.

To all who wash dey mouth on Arsenal during the summer break, talking bout how we lose Henry, how Wenger eh buying nobody to replace him, we eh even making 4th place dis year, blah, blah, blah...... watch de scene now.

We top of the league, various people done have goals to dey name, we making de most money and profit in the country, we have ah A, B & C team dat could beat other EPL teams, and the guidance and vision of de man himself for years to come.

Ah said it here last year, trust de Wenger and have faith in de Young Guns!


i still not convinced..

i think their early season form also have something to do with a nice fixture schedule that help them to build up momentum..  fabregas has been outstanding too..

case in point, spurs get it rough with their schedule by having to play some big sides early, and some tough sides away from home, so they couldnt build up momentum..

i want to see this arsenal side pull points off liverpool, man utd and chelsea and beat the physical sides away from home like aston villa, everton and blackburn before i will say they are title contenders..

ps: henry was and is a goat

i am a purist and believe in the game over money, yes you need moeny to go far in football these days but arsenals/wenger/boards beliefs have been steadfast through rocky seas criticism and departures

arsenal will never pay more than what a player is worth will never succumb to ridiculous wages, all the negative talk about the new stadium abkrupting us lol, ppl forget wenger has a degree in economics lol.

 we are building a club that already has history, into a sustainable club that will continue to build on that history and hopefully emulate the achievements of liverpool, manchester united real madrid ac milan et all.

the future is bright but is not promised

as proud as i am to be an arsenal fan, i hope i never end up in a situation that chelsea fans are going through.

http://sport.setanta.com/en/Sport/News/Football/2007/09/27/Premier-League-Wenger-on-2m-Diarra/
Wenger reveals shock Diarra fee.

Chelsea fans may just be questioning the club’s money-men on Thursday after Arsene Wenger revealed the cut-price fee he paid for midfielder Lassana Diarra.

Wenger stole in on the very stroke of the summer transfer deadline to snap up Diarra, a France international who the Arsenal boss knew from the player’s Le Havre days.

Having become surplus to requirements at Chelsea, the 22-year-old decided to join up with Wenger, who could not believe his luck at the price Chelsea were asking.

“We got him and I must say it was for a lot less than the number in the papers – just £2m,” he told The Daily Star.

Diarra was arguably Arsenal’s man-of-the-match during Tuesday’s Carling Cup triumph over Newcastle, and he already looks settled in The Gunners’ slick passing game.

The Frenchman’s arrival could speed up the departure of Brazil international Gilberto, although the 30-year-old midfielder insists he is keen to extend his Arsenal stay.

“After this year I have one more year left on my contract and we will see if I can sort it out, like we did the last time my contract was down to its last 12 months.

“I have always said I want to stay at the club.”

i had nothing to say to ur post really. im no see-er man and i cant predict what going to go on in those fixtures. and if you look at all my posts youd realise im not the kind of person to bump my gum and say arsenal going and win this and that game and arsenal going and top the league. just like you said, we'll see where arsenal stands when the games are over.

however if you using arsenal's schedule as an argument against their title chances you not making much sense by coming and saying youd put ur money on liverpool or man utd. (ESPECIALLY LIVERPOOL).

you saying arsenal's results arent all that impressive. but liverpool and man utd's results aren't impressive either. THEY ARE WORSE. so i think thats where your argument is lacking strength. when i compare arsenal's games and results with those of man utd and liverpool i see that:

1. ARSENAL BEAT MAN CITY AND MAN UTD DIDNT

2. ARSENAL BEAT PORTSMOUTH AND MAN UTD AND LIVERPOOL DIDNT

3. ARSENAL BEAT TOTTENHAM MORE CONVINCINGLY THAN MAN UTD DID

4. HAD IT NOT BEEN FOR LEHMANN'S BLATANT ERROR ARSENAL COULD HAVE HAD A PERFECT RECORD

5. ARSENAL IS SCORING MORE GOALS THAN MAN UTD. NINE MORE GOALS IN ONE LESS GAME TO BE EXACT

6. TWO OUT OF LIVERPOOLS THREE WINS WERE AGAINST NEWLY PROMOTED TEAMS. AND THEIR THIRD WIN CAME FROM A LAST MINUTE FREE KICK. THEY DREW WITH BIRMINGHAM AT HOME

all im saying is that it makes no sense analysing arsenal's results without analysing their opponents' results as well.

like i said in summer i cyar wait fuh the season to start...now i cyar wiat fuh each and everynext game...yes its reasobable to assume that we will stumble or falter but i quietly believe they may emulate another unbeaten season in the premireship fingers crossed and quiet

i mean seriously i think teams should be scared that this team can possibly get stronger as we go down the season, only faltering block is the africans nations cup may take away fellas on song and euro qualifers may give us injuries we do not need, next game...sunderland

Newcastle United 1-1 Arsenal
/ RivalsDM
Posted: 2 hours ago

Steven Taylor was the hero as Newcastle rediscovered their form just in time for Sam Allardyce to hold Arsenal to a 1-1 draw at St James' Park.
The 21-year-old struck on the hour to end a run of three successive home league defeats to relieve the pressure on their beleaguered manager.

After a run of five games which had yielded just one point, the prospect of an Arsenal rout on Tyneside, where both Portsmouth and Liverpool had won at a canter in recent weeks, was too much to bear.

However, Allardyce's men produced a performance of real character despite Emmanuel Adebayor's delicious fourth-minute opener to deny the Gunners a six-point lead at the top of the table and prevent themselves from slipping to a third successive home defeat for the first time in the Premier League.

A single point alone may not turn Newcastle's season or Allardyce's fortunes around, but the bulk of a crowd of 50,305 went home confident that better times lie ahead for the first time in weeks.


They will hope their side can build upon that platform when Birmingham head for the north-east on Saturday with pride restored and the relationship between players and supporters, which has appeared strained at times, renewed.

Allardyce and owner Mike Ashley shared a joke in the directors' box before kick-off on a night which was perhaps never going to be decisive for the manager, but was one on which his team needed to provide hopes that things will turn.

The smiles, however, had disappeared within four minutes as a piece of sheer quality illuminated the Tyneside night.

Unfortunately for the vast majority of the spectators, it came from a man in a red and white shirt as Adebayor, who had earlier earned the jeers of the home fans for complaining about Taylor's innocuous challenge, silenced them with a breathtaking finish.

Whether or not he should have been allowed to get in between central defenders Taylor and David Rozehnal will no doubt have been discussed in the dressing room at half-time, as the Togo striker controlled Emmanuel Eboue's cross on his chest before thumping an unstoppable volley past Shay Given.

It was just what Allardyce and his players did not need, but to their credit - and backed by fans who had booed them mercilessly during and after their 3-0 home defeat by Liverpool 11 days earlier - they fought back.

Few teams in the Premier League can match Arsenal's movement and passing, and the current crop of Magpies are not one of them.


However, there was no faulting their effort, commitment and desire to scrap for their lives as Joey Barton and Nicky Butt snapped into challenges and Alan Smith, playing in his favoured striking role, caused the Gunners problems throughout.

While Arsene Wenger's men were at times almost irresistible on the counter, Newcastle tried to hit back, and where they had not managed a single shot on target against Liverpool, threatened on several occasions.

Skipper Geremi saw a looping header fall just wide with Manuel Almunia beaten seconds after Adebayor's strike, and then sent the keeper full-stretch to keep out his 28th-minute free-kick.

Almunia just managed to get a hand to Taylor's goal-bound header 10 minutes before the break and Obafemi Martins saw a gilt-edged opportunity pass him by when Smith's 40th-minute flick-on skidded across goal without the Nigerian getting a touch.

The half-time whistle for once brought warm applause, but Newcastle returned knowing the hard work had barely started.

They started brightly once again as Charles N'Zogbia warmed Almunia's hands with a rising left-foot strike from distance which might have caused him real problems had it been set off a yard to his right.

But the threat posed by the visitors was reinforced on 50 minutes when Tomas Rosicky effortlessly made space for himself to play in Eboue down the right, although the full-back wastefully picked out only Given at his near post.

Gilberto threw himself into the path of Geremi's 53rd-minute shot, but it took some fine recovery work from Rozehnal and Barton at the other end seconds later after Adebayor had flicked the ball around the Czech defender and launched a lightning break with Rosicky.

However, Newcastle got their reward on the hour when Smith flicked on Habib Beye's cross and Martins dummied it for Taylor to fire home off the foot of the post.

Arsenal were clearly rattled as the Magpies sensed the tide had turned, but as time ran down, they started to find their feet once again.

However, although they continued to play with a swagger as the final whistle approached, it was the home side who came closest to winning it at the death.

Gunners show is Invincible!


PATRICK VIEIRA reckons Arsenal are playing better football than the Invincibles.
The ex-Gunners skipper led his unbeaten side to the title in 2004 with the help of legends Thierry Henry and Robert Pires.

But Vieira — now at Inter Milan — believes Arsene Wenger's current crop of stars are even more entertaining.

The French veteran, who left North London in 2005, said: “Arsene has done some great things and the players are responding to him at the moment.

“When I left, Cesc Fabregas had the chance to be selected. And he has since blossomed.

“Theirry has left and Emmanuel Adebayor has never scored so many goals. Robin van Persie also feels he is like a leader now.

“In my time, we had a great team. We played well and were physically strong.

"But this current team plays better football than in our day.

“Whether that means they are going to win something is another story.

"But whatever happens, Arsenal are one of the two or three teams in Europe who play the best football.

Spurs are generally considered a Jewish club and have a large Jewish following. Moronic opposing fans use that word to refer to the club and its fans and now Spurs fans use the word to refer to themselves to try to take the sting out of it.

Of course this emboldens other fans to use it even more as a pejorative for Spurs more than Judaism, but it still seems to be an unecessary word to use..

Dat AC Milan vs Arsenal matchup go be real nice. That could easily be a final. I wouldn't worry about Fabregas..de man real tough. Is EPL he playing and he rough up Patrick Vieira 2 years ago when they thought patrick woulda mash him up. Plus Flamini have his back..and doh mind Flamini look like a choir boy, he does real pelt his frame. He is a small beast in de middle of the park and the most improved EPL midfielder imo and silently receiving the plaudits he deserves. Can't wait.

Fabregas is struggling since he came back off injury and his lack of form may be the reason for Arsenal not clicking on all cylinders. Diarra looked quite impressive against Blackburn, like Fabregas he is an excellent shielder of the ball and does not give up possession cheaply. Diarra deserves an opportunity to break into the first team based on his recent form and to keep the others honest.

You'd be mad to leave Arsenal: Wenger warning to Diarra and Diaby
Last updated at 18:14pm on 28th December 2007


Arsene Wenger maintains Arsenal's "young players are in paradise" having been given the opportunity to play for the first team so early in their careers.
The Gunners currently sit second in the Barclays Premier League heading into 2008, which could prove to be a vintage year for the north London club.

Following the summer sale of talisman Thierry Henry, Wenger's emerging squad showed great character to climb to the top of the league table, before being overtaken by Manchester United on Boxing Day, as well as reaching the semi-finals of the Carling Cup and to qualify for the last 16 in Europe.
However, there have been reports of frustration in the dressing room from some of the younger players at a perceived lack of regular first-team football - with the likes of 22-year-old Lassana Diarra, only signed from Chelsea during August, and Abou Diaby, 21, revealing they could consider a future away from Arsenal if things did not improve.

The Gunners boss, though, firmly believes everyone has to be content to bide their time, rather than complain about breaks not going their way.

Wenger declared: "You tell me one club in the world, of our size, that gives a chance to the young players as we do? There is not one.

"You go to Real Madrid, you go to Milan, where do the young players play?

"So at our club young players are in paradise, because usually they have to wait to 26 or 27 to get a chance in a big club."

The Arsenal manager continued: "I try to make everybody happy, but it is impossible.

"You cannot always feel sorry for players who are a bit frustrated.

"We are not in a kindergarten here - we are in a job for men.

"Why should I come up and give explanations for every individual who is not happy? It is a joke.

"When you are a professional footballer, competition is part of your job.

"Why should we suddenly all feel surprised a player is frustrated? You cannot be at our level at one of the biggest clubs in the world, paid at a fantastic level, and have no competition."

Wenger maintained: "At the end of the day, I will act for what is good for the club, because that is my first responsibly - what it important is what is good for hundred of thousands, not what is good for one."

The Arsenal manager, however, sees no reasons why Diarra - currently behind fellow Frenchman Mathieu Flamini in the central midfield pecking order - cannot go on to be a "fantastic player" for the Gunners.

Wenger insisted: "Diarra has a 100% professional attitude every day in training. He is in the squad tomorrow [against Everton].

"For me, players like Diarra are top, top level players. If you have a period for two or three months with the team doing well and you have a player doing well in front of you that is bad luck.

"But at the end of the day, it is a job for strong people and those who stay strong always come out.

"If they join a club lower in the league then they start saying: 'I should be playing at a top club'. You expect competition at a big club.

"Diarra has the talent to be at a big club. That is where his place is. It is as simple as that.

"He wants to play, I can understand that. He is unhappy not to play which I can understand as well.

"But you have to assess yourself and stay where you belong.

"He belongs at a big club because he has the talent for it. If he continues to fight then he will come through and play."

Arsenal surrendered their lead at the top of the table following a goaless draw at Portsmouth on Boxing Day.

It was the first time the Gunners had failed to score in the Premier League this season, and was a third away [Premier League] game without a win.

Wenger is anticipating another stern examination of his side's title credentials at sixth-placed Everton tomorrow - but declared: "We will be up for it. On that front, I have no problem.

"The last three games we have not created so many chances, but in the programme we have played Chelsea, Tottenham and Portsmouth away.

"We took seven points from three very difficult games and that is not disastrous."

Arsenal youth shade the old Invincibles

Tuesday January 1, 2008
The Guardian

Arsenal have already surprised many people by holding the lead in the Premier League, but Arsène Wenger's team may be taken aback by the realisation that they are outdoing the 2003-04 team. It was unbeaten throughout the whole league campaign. Despite being beaten once the present line-up have more points than their predecessors did after 20 fixtures.
The present line-up holds the lead by 47 points to 46. "It is fantastic to hear we are doing better than in our invincible season," said Wenger. "What is important is that the confidence is back in the side." Arsenal, who meet West Ham this afternoon, had faltered slightly, but rallied on Saturday to beat Everton 4-1 at Goodison. There was an unusually direct tone to the fightback.

"An outstanding Everton team forced us to play long ball," said Wenger. "The weather didn't help and the pitch was not at its best. To be efficient we had to go for a more direct game. Maybe as well we could surprise Everton on that because teams don't expect it from us."
Eduardo's two goals at Goodison were his first in the Premier League. "He is cool," Wenger said of the Croat. "He just puts it out of reach of the keeper and you think sometimes the keeper could have done something about it. That is something instinctive that only some people have. Robbie Fowler had that."

Eduardo's form is important since the Arsenal manager reckons that his injured attacker Robin van Persie will be missing for a maximum of 10 days. There will be a lengthier absence for Kolo Touré and Emmanuel Eboué. Today sees their last Premier League game before flying out to the African Cup of Nations.

They could each miss a total of nine Arsenal matches should Ivory Coast get to the final. "I expect them to come back after 10 February," said a resigned Wenger, who expects his men to be involved in that final. The manager admits, too, that he did not worry about such an eventuality when signing the players.

"Unfortunately," he said. "I forget the African Cup. When it happens you think, 'Ahhh.' That is maybe one of the negative sides. I think, though, how good a player is and then wonder how we will cope with it." Wenger is convinced there is enough cover in the squad and suggests that nobody will be signed in the transfer window.

James Lawton: Fabregas leaves beautiful game in gutter when he should be looking to the stars
Wenger denied that the reaction was exaggerated without any equivocation
Published: 01 January 2008
It was not as though Cesc Fabregas was without "form". A prime suspect in the notorious "Pizzagate" affair, a kid with as much attitude as skill to spare and with more than a handful of unsavoury incidents against his name, including an allegation backed by some compelling video evidence that as a mere 17-year-old he had stooped to spit at the fallen Michael Ballack in a Champions League game, he was at the very least a football angel with a dirty face and something less than an immaculate record for good conduct.

So why was his behaviour at Goodison Park at the weekend quite so shocking? Partly it was because we had come to expect more – a thousand times more.

This, after all, was the 20-year-old with the world of football at his feet. This was the precociously talented, feisty boy who, for the first half of the season, had been promising to become a man of sublime gifts and vast influence. He announced both his hunger and his ambitions, which included the captaincy of Arsenal. No one was less reticent about the fact that the departure of the great Thierry Henry was not a loss but an opportunity – for Fabregas and young colleagues who had their spirit sapped in the court of a huge but essentially ungenerous presence.

Yes, given all that, and Fabregas's wonderful vein of creativity which has been the brilliant thread of Arsenal's often breathtaking football, it was deeply depressing to see him writhing on the floor as though the illegally thrown but plainly innocuous arm of his Everton rival – and compatriot – Mikel Arteta had brought exquisite and disabling pain.

But there was something worse and it came later when Arteta reflected on the red card that his manager David Moyes was convinced had been produced by the referee only as a direct result of Fabregas's writhings.

If Arteta, a wonderfully fluent talent himself, a player who, before his dismissal, had consistently defied the idea that his team was hopelessly outgunned in terms of individual ability, had chosen to write a succinct epitaph to a year of unbridled cheating and sour spirit in football, he could scarcely have done better than in what we must believe were a few unguarded comments in the heat of a painful defeat.

Said Arteta, "Fabregas tried to gain an advantage for his team, which is normal, as I try to do as well, but sometimes you're disappointed, not because of a sending-off but because you lost a game you should have won."

There is only one translation and it is hard to imagine – at least outside the "exclusive" hotel in Manchester where United players staged their squalid impression of the fall of the Roman empire which created rage in the very bones of their manager, Sir Alex Ferguson – a more dismal commentary on the working values of big-time football in 2007.

What Arteta was saying was simple enough. There is just one legitimate cause for regret in today's football. It is to lose ... lose because, to re-employ his euphemism, you failed in your attempts to gain an advantage for your team. You didn't cheat well enough. You didn't manage to create the effect of serious injury. You didn't manage to confuse the man in charge of controlling the game, to bend utterly what passes for justice, and then, having pulled off the dark art, finally strut off the field with mocking applause for the raging home fans.

Fabregas's performance begged another question at Goodison. If the situation had been reversed, if Fabregas had held off Arteta with his arm, and the Everton man had gone down as though he had been hit by a sniper's bullet and then reappeared friskily scarcely a minute later, would the thunder of outrage have sounded quite so loud? Of course not. Arteta's quietly uttered truth went to the very heart of football's problem. It declared that who cheated best won – and this conditioned all other reactions to the impostors of win and loss.

Arsenal's manager, Arsène Wenger, who has given so much that is enduringly brilliant to the English game, and not least the first half of this current season, was asked if Fabregas's reaction had been exaggerated. He denied it. He said that Fabregas had been hit. There was no equivocation, no concession that maybe the boy wonder had a pain threshold that would have to be rated low in a nursery playpen.

And why would there be? It would make sense only of a grotesque parody of the behaviour of a true sportsman. It wouldn't square, certainly, with the nerve of Fabregas, the hard-edged fury of his best work in the closest situations, a contribution that has persuaded some of us that if he can maintain his rhythm and bite in the second half of the season he must win every award for individual achievement by a mile.

At times Fabregas suggests he has allocated for himself the noblest vocation of any footballer. He plays a game of beauty and magic. He creates opportunities where they apparently do not exist. He reminds us that, yes, football is a simple game, but only when an immense amount of hard work and intelligence is applied.

Yet at Goodison Park on Saturday night he carelessly deposited all of that in the gutter. He invited us to look into the dirt of football rather than up to the stars, and when he left us he did it with a cocky, unabashed stride.

Saddest of all was that he seemed utterly unaware that he had cheated no one more profoundly than himself.

James Lawton: Fabregas leaves beautiful game in gutter when he should be looking to the stars
Wenger denied that the reaction was exaggerated without any equivocation
Published: 01 January 2008
It was not as though Cesc Fabregas was without "form". A prime suspect in the notorious "Pizzagate" affair, a kid with as much attitude as skill to spare and with more than a handful of unsavoury incidents against his name, including an allegation backed by some compelling video evidence that as a mere 17-year-old he had stooped to spit at the fallen Michael Ballack in a Champions League game, he was at the very least a football angel with a dirty face and something less than an immaculate record for good conduct.

So why was his behaviour at Goodison Park at the weekend quite so shocking? Partly it was because we had come to expect more – a thousand times more.

This, after all, was the 20-year-old with the world of football at his feet. This was the precociously talented, feisty boy who, for the first half of the season, had been promising to become a man of sublime gifts and vast influence. He announced both his hunger and his ambitions, which included the captaincy of Arsenal. No one was less reticent about the fact that the departure of the great Thierry Henry was not a loss but an opportunity – for Fabregas and young colleagues who had their spirit sapped in the court of a huge but essentially ungenerous presence.

Yes, given all that, and Fabregas's wonderful vein of creativity which has been the brilliant thread of Arsenal's often breathtaking football, it was deeply depressing to see him writhing on the floor as though the illegally thrown but plainly innocuous arm of his Everton rival – and compatriot – Mikel Arteta had brought exquisite and disabling pain.

But there was something worse and it came later when Arteta reflected on the red card that his manager David Moyes was convinced had been produced by the referee only as a direct result of Fabregas's writhings.

If Arteta, a wonderfully fluent talent himself, a player who, before his dismissal, had consistently defied the idea that his team was hopelessly outgunned in terms of individual ability, had chosen to write a succinct epitaph to a year of unbridled cheating and sour spirit in football, he could scarcely have done better than in what we must believe were a few unguarded comments in the heat of a painful defeat.

Said Arteta, "Fabregas tried to gain an advantage for his team, which is normal, as I try to do as well, but sometimes you're disappointed, not because of a sending-off but because you lost a game you should have won."

There is only one translation and it is hard to imagine – at least outside the "exclusive" hotel in Manchester where United players staged their squalid impression of the fall of the Roman empire which created rage in the very bones of their manager, Sir Alex Ferguson – a more dismal commentary on the working values of big-time football in 2007.

What Arteta was saying was simple enough. There is just one legitimate cause for regret in today's football. It is to lose ... lose because, to re-employ his euphemism, you failed in your attempts to gain an advantage for your team. You didn't cheat well enough. You didn't manage to create the effect of serious injury. You didn't manage to confuse the man in charge of controlling the game, to bend utterly what passes for justice, and then, having pulled off the dark art, finally strut off the field with mocking applause for the raging home fans.

Fabregas's performance begged another question at Goodison. If the situation had been reversed, if Fabregas had held off Arteta with his arm, and the Everton man had gone down as though he had been hit by a sniper's bullet and then reappeared friskily scarcely a minute later, would the thunder of outrage have sounded quite so loud? Of course not. Arteta's quietly uttered truth went to the very heart of football's problem. It declared that who cheated best won – and this conditioned all other reactions to the impostors of win and loss.

Wenger praises Clichy
Wenger praises "awesome" Clichy


By Patrick Haond   Last updated: 2nd January 2008
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has praised French defender Gael Clichy's contribution to the league-leaders' conquering campaign.

The 22-year-old has been an ever-present for the Gunners in the league this term, starting all 21 of their games.

Wenger has praised the "awesome" aspects of his game and believes Clichy now looks an experienced player who can handle any situation.

The Arsenal boss told L'Equipe that Clichy was outstanding in the 2-0 victory over West Ham on New Year's Day.

"He assisted Adebayor, after the last one against Everton, which means two in two matches," said Wenger.

Improvement

"Actually, his improvement has been quite steady. Today we can notice he has no more gaps in his play.

"He is awesome in the quality of his passes, in his long passes, in his technical level. He can get out of any situation.

"I would say now he looks experienced. He really achieved a great last match."

Wenger has also revealed that he expects his African players to play in the FA Cup third round clash on Sunday before leaving for the African Cup of Nations.

"I believe Kolo Toure and Emmanuel Eboue will be able to play in the cup on Sunday against Burnley before leaving," he said.

Claudio Pizarro
Pizarro celebrates but it was Camp who helped his effort into the net



Holders Chelsea edged past their west London neighbours but were helped by a Lee Camp own goal to seal their place in the FA Cup fourth round.

The Hoops's goalkeeper was helpless as Claudio Pizarro's low drive hit the post, rebounded off Camp's back and bobbled across the line.

Substitute Patrick Agyemang should have slotted past Hilario after the break as the well-organised visitors improved.

Rangers pressed late on but the below-par Blues dug in to progress.

Rarely do Chelsea host a side richer than themselves but their class prevailed in this battle of the billionaires, despite a spirited performance from the team 35 places below them in the league standings.

This local rivalry that has simmered without engagement for 12 years stirred the Hoops into action early on and they denied their neighbours the time and space to create clear chances.

But the visitors' early zest and work rate soon fizzled out and they fell behind on 28 minutes, albeit through a huge slice of fortune.

Pizarro swivelled on the edge of the box and crashed his low shot off the post, only for Camp to inadvertently knock it back in.

The goal settled the home side who wrestled control of the game in midfield with Steve Sidwell dictating the play.

Shaun Wright-Phillips went close when he fired over from the edge of the box, while Sidwell went even closer when he struck the post with a low drive from 25 yards that had Camp well beaten.

QPR, with five debutants in their starting line-up, failed to seriously trouble Hilario although Agyemang should have slotted past the keeper from close range. Instead, he scuffed his effort into the keeper's arms.

Akos Buzsaky, a former team-mate of Ricardo Carvalho and Paulo Ferreira from their time at Porto, failed to make any impact and was reduced to speculative long shots.

Didier Drogba, bound for the African Cup of Nations on Sunday, made his return from the knee surgery he underwent in early December. But he, and those behind him, struggled to kill off a dogged QPR.

But despite a valiant effort in the last 15 minutes, the four-time winners held out to progress.

ah yes
what a festive season, 10 points from 12 not bad not bad.

sunday we face burnely FA 3rd round, these games are hard to predict, i see cesc rested and adebayor rested, with walcott bendtner and eduardo starting as is diarra and diaby, flamini, helb gallas, possibly gilberto but he might be suspect at center back. we will miss toure how much will be seen, as long as captain gallas is on the pitch he'll pull it together. Lehman might start too, if not then i am sure he's gone before the window closes.

after sunday we have a carling cup 1st leg tie at the grove against spurs, interesting game for sure!

then birmingham on sat again at home, nice!

Watching the FA Cup and thinking when Kolo gorn who should partner Gallas. Senderos whom I defended in the past is simply too nervous a defender. Wenger should experiment with Sanga, who played the role several times for his club in France. Eboue will be out as well so he will have to find a right back as well.

It might well be Gilberto.  He's filled in there in the past.

A real long shot could be Abou Diaby but unlikely given Senderos' experience.

Djourou will return to Gunners

Djourou: Will cover for Toure

Johan Djourou will definitely return to Arsenal in January when his loan deal at Birmingham expires.

Alex McLeish had been keen to keep the Swiss international defender at St Andrews but Arsene Wenger has requested that the player return to the Emirates.

Djourou had followed in the footsteps of Fabrice Muamba and Nicklas Bendtner by joining the Midlands outfit on-loan, but after making 12 appearances for the club he will now return to London.

The main reason behind Wenger's desire for Djourou to return to his parent club is that Kolo Toure is due to represent the Ivory Coast at the African Cup of Nations, a situation which will leave Arsenal short of defensive options.

Despite being disappointed that he is losing the player, McLeish accepts his fellow manager's decision.

Presence

"Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has told me he is taking him back in January," the former Scotland boss told the Birmingham Mail.

"He will be a loss, for sure. It is disappointing that he is not going to be with us for much longer.

"But, you have to respect Arsenal's decision.

"Johan is a big presence of a boy, no doubt about that, and those kind of players seem to be a feature of many a squad in the Premier League."

I recognize that it was a young side today but Arsenal have some of the best young talent in the Premiership.  The second team would probably finish mid-table if not better.

Arsenal will be without Robin van Persie and Johan Djourou for a few weeks.
 
The Dutch striker (thigh) and the Swiss centre back (groin) both picked up their injuries in the Carling Cup Semi-Final first leg against Tottenham on January 9. They missed the draw with Birmingham last Saturday and now it appears their absences will go on. However, on a brighter note, Tomas Rosicky will be back for the trip to Fulham on Saturday. The Czech midfielder fell ill on the eve of the game against Alex McLeish’s side.
 
“Compared to last week we have Robin van Persie who is out for a few weeks,” Arsène Wenger told Arsenal TV Online. “I believe Tomas Rosicky will be OK to come back.
 
“But Johan Djourou is out as well. He has had an inflammation of his groin and in the next two weeks he will not be capable to play.”
 
Arsenal TV Online subscribers will be able to see the full video interview on Friday morning. In it Wenger talks about: the departure of Lassana Diarra, the arrival of Kevin Keegan, the draw with Birmingham, the injury situation, the problems at Fulham and the appointment of Roy Hodgson.

3-0 to the arsenal!

spurs tomorrow, should be a very interesting game, i think they will go with berbatov, keane, lennon, defoe, jenas. to take advantage of arsenals weakened back line which sees gallas coming in to bolster things.

then newcastle come to us on saturday for FA Cup 4th round and then 3 days later back again for premireship game at home. man i love this game

Tottenham 5-1 Arsenal

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/league_cup/7197913.stm

(Spurs win 6-2 on aggregate)

By Mandeep Sanghera

Spurs celebrate after Robbie Keane put them 3-0 up against Arsenal


A pulsating Tottenham performance saw them run riot against Arsenal to book a place in the Carling Cup final.

Spurs got off to the perfect start when Jermaine Jenas angled in a shot to put them 2-1 ahead on aggregate.

Arsenal's Nicolas Bendtner then headed into his own net before Robbie Keane's 18-yard shot put Spurs 3-0 up.

Aaron Lennon sidefooted in for Spurs before Emmanuel Adebayor grabbed a consolation for Arsenal but Steed Malbranque's strike completed the rout.

Tottenham had been left rueing a late Arsenal equaliser in the first leg and they also had the psychological baggage of not having beaten their arch rivals since November 1999.

But with home advantage and Arsenal's penchant for fielding fringe players in the Carling Cup, Spurs scented victory and they grabbed an early lead.

Jenas was allowed time and space to drive a shot across goal and the ball went in off the post after three minutes.

Spurs gave Arsenal's defence no respite with their fluent and attacking football as they took a stranglehold on the match.

The Gunners were also starved of possession in attack and they rarely looked like levelling, due to a mixture of poor play and a determined White Hart Lane side.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger had kept faith with most of his second string for the game but drafted in a handful of first-team regulars in centre-back William Gallas, right-back Bacary Sagna and playmaker Alexander Hleb.

But the trio struggled to help their side break Spurs's grip and even the introduction of Cesc Fabregas for the injured Denilson did not help the visitors.

Instead, Bendtner's own goal added to the home side's lead after he headed in as he went up with Michael Dawson to meet a Jenas free-kick.

Arsenal were rattled and on the backfoot and Dimitar Berbatov should have inflicted another bodyblow to the visitors when he was clean through, only to hit the post with his shot.

Arsenal's Bendtner (left) and Gallas had a row near the end of the game

Jenas poked into the side-netting just before the break but Spurs did not have long to wait for a third.

Lennon's delightful ball with the outside of his right foot sent Keane through to score with a shot which appeared to catch Fabianski by surprise and one he should have saved.

Almost immediately, Bendtner looked set to give Arsenal a lifeline, only to see his strike bounce the wrong side of the goal-line after hitting the underside of the crossbar.

It got worse for Arsenal when Lennon slotted in on the hour mark as Spurs threatened to run riot.

Adebayor's 20-yard strike was too late to give Arsenal a way back into the game and their frustration boiled over when Bendtner appeared to argue with his team-mate and goalscorer before exchanging angry words with Gallas.

Malbranque compounded Arsenal's misery as Juande Ramos secured a place in the Carling Cup final on 24 February in his first season in charge.

"rapid underground specualtion seems to have been given more fuel followng nikalas bendters bust upwith emmanuel adebayor.

seems arsenals scouts have an eye on the tall trinidadian striker. although the same type of player and adebayor, jones appears to be more mature than the danish moody striker.

however a straight swap is highly unlikely but the dane may return to birminigham with the rest of his youth and reserve team arsenal team mates hungry for regular first team appearances"

Chelsea 1-0 Reading

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/eng_prem/7210586.stm

By Mark Mitchener

(http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/44393000/jpg/_44393215_ballackceleb_pa203.jpg)
Ballack (right) thanks Ferreira, who crossed for the only goal

Michael Ballack's first-half header helped Chelsea keep in touch with the leaders as Reading suffered their fifth successive Premier League defeat.

Ballack headed in Paulo Ferreira's right-wing cross in the 32nd minute as the Blues dominated the first half.

They were unable to score again in a nervy second half while Reading failed to make the most of several set-pieces.

The result meant Chelsea equalled a club record of nine successive wins in all competitions set in 2005.
It also meant that Avram Grant's record in his first 29 wins is exactly the same as Jose Mourinho's.

Claude Makelele, wearing a plaster over his left ear, needed to be alert within the first minute of the game as the fit-again John Oster swung a corner in towards the near post, but Chelsea's stand-in skipper was able to clear.

But after that initial foray, Reading spent the majority of the first half camped in their own half, trying to repel wave after wave of Chelsea attacks.

The Blues were presented with an early opportunity when a lunging challenge by Kalifa Cisse on Shaun Wright-Phillips allowed Ballack to try his luck from 20 yards, but Marcus Hahnemann got down well to smother the free-kick.

The American then had to be alert to palm away a curling effort from Joe Cole, and spread himself well when Wright-Phillips hurdled a challenge from Graeme Murty and burst through on goal.

However, Hahnemann looked less than secure minutes later, when his weak punch at Cole's corner looked to be squirming towards goal until Oster hacked it away.

Cole threatened again when an attempted cross from the right took a deflection and looped just wide of Hahnemann's far post.

Reading were still searching for their first away league win since April 2007 - but without the injured Dave Kitson, lacked a focal point up front where Leroy Lita and Kevin Doyle were spectators for most of the first half as their nine team-mates battled to clear their lines.

And their resistance only lasted just over half-an-hour as Ferreira raced to the byeline to deliver a pin-point cross, and Ballack rose imperiously above Stephen Hunt and Ivar Ingimarsson to head home.

Hunt was booed throughout by the home fans after his collision with Cech last season saw the Chelsea goalkeeper suffer a fractured skull - and was later on the receiving end of a fierce two-footed challenge from Alex that went unpunished.

(http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/44393000/jpg/_44393277_anelka_getty203.jpg)
Anelka could not find the net on his first home start for Chelsea

The visitors won a succession of corners leading up to the interval without ever really threatening, but Chelsea nearly doubled their lead within 12 seconds of the restart as full-back Nicky Shorey was caught napping by Cole, who shot agonisingly wide.

At the other end, Cisse looped a 20-yard shot over the bar and Ingimarsson headed a Hunt free-kick tamely wide but Cech in the Chelsea goal was rarely troubled as the visitors pressed for an equaliser.

When captain Murty finally got a good cross in for the Royals, Lita looked well off the pace as he failed to anticipate where Doyle was going to nod the ball down.

Nicolas Anelka was relatively quiet on his first home start for Avram Grant's side, dragging a left-foot shot wide - and wasting an even better chance to make it 2-0 when he headed straight at Hahnemann.

Oster nearly made Chelsea pay late on when his free-kick curled just wide - although that was to be the winger's last action before he was replaced by Marek Matejovsky.

The Ferreira-Ballack combination nearly produced a second goal reminiscent of the first, but the German could not direct his header on target.

There was also time for ex-Reading favourite Steve Sidwell to make a brief appearance from the bench against his old side as time ran out.

#
Chelsea boss Avram Grant:
"This is the first time we've seen the players tired in the last 20-25 minutes but they've played so many games in a short time and it's the same players - especially in midfield and attack, where you need to run a lot.

"But we could have killed the game off before that because we had so many chances in the first half and the first 20 minutes of the second.

"Reading came back at us, they didn't create chances, but they were close to our box. We needed to defend and we defended well."

#
Reading manager Steve Coppell on getting a first away win and moving clear of the drop zone:
"It's another opportunity gone for us but we look forward and we're confident we can get results away from home - it's come to the nitty gritty part of the season where we need to.

"This is a situation which has been developing for a long time. The league is clear-cut and for quite some time it's been any three from eight or nine.

"I don't think anybody in that group feels comfortable. We don't feel comfortable, we don't like being there, but we have plenty of games to do something about it."

Chelsea: Cech, Ferreira, Alex, Carvalho, Bridge, Wright-Phillips (Sidwell 85), Makelele, Ballack, Joe Cole, Anelka, Malouda (Pizarro 76).
Subs Not Used: Cudicini, Sinclair, Ben-Haim.

(scroll down and you'll see the article's relevance to Arsenal)



Portsmouth v Chelsea

Jermain Defoe is expected to make his Portsmouth debut at home to Chelsea and Benjani Mwaruwari could also figure.

Centre-back Sylvain Distin (hamstring) is almost certain to miss out, with Hermann Hreidarsson recalled.

Midfielder Frank Lampard could be on the Chelsea bench after returning to training, though he is not match fit.

John Terry remains out with a fractured foot, Andriy Shevchenko (back) is also expected to miss out and Ricardo Carvalho serves a one-match ban.

Portsmouth (from): James, Johnson, Pamarot, Distin, Hreidarsson, Davis, Diarra, Hughes, Pedro Mendes, Kranjcar, Baros, Defoe, Benjani, Diop, Mvuemba, Lauren, Aubey, Wilson, Begovic.

Chelsea (from): Cech, Cudicini, Hilario, Ferreira, Belletti, Alex, Ben-Haim, Ivanovic, A Cole, Bridge, J Cole, Wright-Phillips, Sidwell, Ballack, Pizarro, Lampard, Anelka, Malouda, Sinclair, Makelele.

#
Chelsea boss Avram Grant:
"I was at Portsmouth [as director of football] at the beginning of the year and I had a wonderful time.

"I enjoyed every minute of it. I like the club and the city and it will be exciting to go back as a manager.

"Harry has made huge progress. We know how they was before and now they are a legitimate team in the top of the table. He is a great manager."

#
Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp:
"Jermain Defoe is the sort of player we've only dreamed about getting at Portsmouth. To actually have him here is fantastic.

"He's a top, top player, a real goalscorer and needs to be playing, but he didn't have that at Tottenham who have other terrific strikers in Dimitar Berbatov and Robbie Keane.

"We've wanted him for a long time and he's another great signing for us."

BIG-MATCH FACTS

Chelsea go to Portsmouth aiming to set a new club record of 10 straight victories in all competitions.

Avram Grant's quadruple-chasing west Londoners are now in a three-way fight for the Premier League title, trailing the top two by just four points. Significantly, Manchester United and Arsenal are still to visit Stamford Bridge.

Portsmouth were outclassed by a Cristiano Ronaldo inspired Manchester United on Wednesday night at Old Trafford. Now they play the eighth and last Premier League fixture against the "Big Four" clubs, and are yet to register a victory against them (three draws, four defeats so far).

How Harry Redknapp would love to register his 50th Premier League victory as Portsmouth manager (both spells), in this fixture.

The Londoners have gained five more victories on their Premier League travels, than Pompey have mustered at Fratton Park. But defeat here would be Chelsea's 100th loss away from home in the Premier League.

Chelsea are defending a 100% record against Portsmouth in the Premier League of nine wins out of nine, in which 19 goals were scored and just one conceded. All four previous Premier League visits to Fratton Park have been won by 0-2 margins.

Tottenham v Man Utd preview
Tottenham out to avenge cup defeat

Tottenham welcome Manchester United to White Hart Lane on Saturday hoping to halt the Red Devils' title charge.

United returned to the top of the Premier League on Wednesday as Sir Alex Ferguson's side brushed aside Portsmouth with ease.

However, Juande Ramos will be looking to avenge last weekend's FA Cup defeat to United, while the Spurs boss will also be keen to test his new look side against one of the best oppositions in the business.

Having replaced Martin Jol in October, Ramos has been one of the top flight's busiest bosses in the January transfer window as he attempts to stamp his own mark on the Spurs squad.

Ramos has brought in a host of defenders in Brazil left-back Gilberto, Alan Hutton, Jonathan Woodgate and Chris Gunter as his bids to plug Tottenham's porous back-line.

Gilberto and Hutton could make their debuts, while Woodgate is expected to continue after making his first start in the midweek draw with Everton.

Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov's formidable strike partnership has forced Jermain Defoe to seek pastures new on the South Coast with Portsmouth and therefore the duo are expected to continue to lead the line on Saturday.

United have been in formidable form over recent weeks and have won nine of their last 10 league games.

Tottenham's main aim will be to stop Portuguese trickster Cristiano Ronaldo, who has scored 19 league goals this season, as the United winger continues to terrorise defences the length and breadth of the land.

Meanwhile, Ferguson is expected to recall Carlos Tevez, Ryan Giggs and Owen Hargreaves to the starting line-up after the trio missed out on a first XI place against Pompey.   When asked about the Chelsea intrusion into the Arsenal thread at Socawarriors.net he stated that "Arssenal are a **** side and Gunnerstunner needs to stop whining like Wenger".

Louis Saha (knee) and Gary Neville (ankle) remain sidelined through injury.

Arsenal midfielder Gilberto says he is likely to leave the Emirates this summer if he does not regain his place in Arsene Wenger's side.

The Brazil captain has started just five times for the Gunners in the Premier League this term as Mathieu Flamini and Cesc Fabregas have monopolised the central midfield berths.

And Gilberto, 31, insists he will look to move elsewhere in the summer if he cannot oust his younger rivals.

"At the moment I cannot see any future for me at the club," he told The Guardian.

"I will see what will happen in the next few months and until the end (of the season), if I will get the chance to come back in the team. If not, I will see what I am going to do at the end.

"It's been painful for me and to stay another season like this would kill me. I will sit down with Arsene and see what we can do to manage the situation."

He added: "I am not happy in the position I am in but I am trying to manage the situation.

"I am very calm and I'm being professional as I've always been. We'll see at the end of the season what is going to happen."

yuppers

i saw that today, kinda sad but we have plenty midfeilders, we need centerbacks

we migth see one or two buys in summer, but for now we will see how far we can go, we still have a chance at 3 pieces of silverware.

and given that wenger says priority is to prem and champs, i migth be wrong but i think he wil send out a side to manchester for FA cup but wont be too dissapointed if manu win that one he'd rather beat them in prem anyday.

mind you the rest of us want to see an arsenal treble, all it takes is a lil bit of luck n skill for things to go your way.

February 15, 2008
Theo Walcott
Theo Walcott was a late drop-out for the Blackburn game and will be missing once more at the weekend. "Theo was down to play on Monday but he had a thigh problem," said Wenger. "He will be short for Saturday again and I wanted to play him there."
 
February 15, 2008
Manuel Almunia
Manuel Almunia has not fully recovered from sicknes and is unlikely to feature against Manchester United.
 
February 15, 2008
Abou Diaby
Abou Diaby was injured in last weekend's match with Manchester City but there is no time frame on when he will return. "Diaby, in fairness, picked the injury up at Man City," said the manager.

"As for Robin, it has all gone well," said the manager. "After last time we have decided not to push him and give him the needed time. I don't want to set any timescale because that means, if he is not ready by that date, I might feel I have to push him."
 
February 15, 2008
Denilson
The Brazilian midfielder was withdrawn midway through the first-half of the Carling Cup Semi-FInal Second-Leg defeat against Tottenham. "He will be out for three or four weeks," said Wenger after the match. "He has a hamstring [problem]."

i see d phsyio, kit manager, youth team warming up

factor in manu real bitter about they points dropped and looking for some blood, i jsu hope its not a carling up styel exit.

mind you we responded very well from that

team list  probable:

 bendtner, eduardo, toure, eboue, helb, fabregas, flamini, lehmann, gallas, traore, hoyte, fabianski.

will this be another reason why diarra should not have been let go? will wenger buy in summer?

will definately see soem reserve team players, wenger says 14 players will travel to trafford.

Dayum

GOOONERS!!!

you could have 11 reserves playing... we will play them with the same intensity we would have played with against your A team...

Injuries are the worst.. i hope no1 gets injured 2moro..

I expect Adebayor to shake off whatever he has.... Also Cesc apparently has a virus but is fit but might be rested

So probable Assanal squad:
Lehman

Eboue
Toure
Gallas
Hoyte

Hleb
Flamini
Maybe Cesc..unless he finds a replacement for the lil buller to be rested
Eduardo

Bendtner
Adebayor


Fergie said he will make a few changes .. prob 3 or 4

Utd probable

VDS

O'Shea
Brown
Vidic
Evra

Ronaldo
Anderson
Hargo
Nani

Rooney
Tevez

have to admit is was feeling up for it yesterday morning especially after barnsley might have sent raffa off to the job center

even after the 20th minute i thought maybe a comeback, but muddarasphole nani shotpass rigth under lehman hand, it was over

just one of those days where things not going your way are compounded by the shite yuh team playing

not to take away from manu as they played on the smae pitch as us, but what d ass happen to old trafford turf?? i thought i was watching a 1980's mid season pitch

i hope we responde the same way we did after spurs tonking in the league cup

so out of two cups, still in the prem by 5 and in the knockout of champs, i wanna put bets on arsenal meeting manu in champs league

I dunno give Villa dey due, Arsenal gih dem some test in de earlies but once de match settle down I find is dem who had the better opportunities and finally pressured them into a mistake.  Other than Walcott's shot on Carson (fine save) in the 6', Villa really dominated most of the scoring chances...Maloney had ah cracker that Aluminia was late to react to, managing (luckily) to push it onto the post.

Agbonlahor giving Gallas and Senderos fits.

Ah usually doh engage is carrying on dis type of talk because people does let dey loyalty to players and teams cloud dey judgements but yuh set yuh self up, so let meh smack yuh back down! Fact is United won the CL, if yuh want tuh say it was lucky yuh entitled. Wey Arsenal's CL cup? Oh dats right, yuh all everyting glamor boy Henrietta tro wey when he coulda wrap it up against Barca.

As for all yuh  doin better than United, please, excuse meh but didn't United jus whipped all yuh arse in the FA cup, which means all yuh out right? United draw away in the CL all yuh draw at home and goin away to play while United comin home to play. So who doin better? The one ting yuh get right is " we (Arsenal) will keep tryin to stop dropping point", all yuh droppin points all right, and United winning games. So United will keep doing what they doing which is winning and all yuh keep 'trying to stop drop points' and come April dat game yuh biggin up will be of no consequence because all yuh will still be 'trying to stop dropping points' and United will still be winning!

Oh yeah United still in contention for 3 titles and Arsenal 2, so if that equates to Arsenal doin better than United then yuh biases also interfering with yuh ability in arithmetic!

Oh yeah, thanks for lettin me do it on the thread yuh started for yuh beloved Gooners!

http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story?id=513356&cc=5901
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is confident his young Gunners will rise to the challenge on Tuesday night when they take on Champions League holders AC Milan at the San Siro.

 
No English side have beaten the Italian giants on their own ground, with Manchester United thrashed 3-0 here in last season's semi-final.


However, Wenger believes - with the tie delicately poised at 0-0 following the first leg at Emirates Stadium a fortnight ago - Arsenal can get the result needed to make it into the quarter-finals.

'When you are a football player, you are desperate to play games like this,' Wenger said.

'The only important thing is you have to know your team has the qualities needed to win - and I am confident my team have the needed qualities to win here.

'We are a young side - the life of this team started two years ago. In that time, we have been to the Bernabeu, Juventus, and the Champions League final against Barcelona.

'We are used to playing in big pressure and in big atmosphere.'

Wenger, though, insists Arsenal will play their own game on Tuesday night, rather than just look to stifle Milan.

'We have nothing to protect, but know we want to score goals,' he said.

'Here we know we have to do both - to defend and attack like in any normal game which we want to win.'

Wenger has overseen an Arsenal victory in the San Siro, with his team having beaten Milan's city rivals Inter in some style back during November 2003 when they won here 5-1.

The Gunners boss feels his current squad can take heart from that result.

'It is a big inspiration because we came here then in a desperate situation and had to make a big score - and we made it,' he said.

'I believe we are highly focused and the team spirit is very high. It all the focus to come here and make a result.

'We are confident and up for it.'

Midfielder Mathieu Flamini feels Arsenal must not let Milan slow the game down to their pace.

He said: 'The tempo is going to be very important because we are playing against a big team in Milan.

'It will be very difficult, but we have to be strong, play our own game and score one more goal than them.

'We certainly have the quality to do that.'

Flamini added: 'When you are a professional footballer you dream to play in this kind of game. There will be no fear - it will be a pleasure.'

Fit-again striker Robin van Persie has travelled with the squad to Italy, and is set to take his place on the bench on Tuesday night.

The 24-year-old striker started the campaign in fine form before being sidelined by knee and muscular problems.

Although van Persie has not played since the first leg of the Carling Cup semi-final against Tottenham on January 9, Wenger believes the Dutchman's return can have a big impact.

'We had to be patient with Robin,' said the Arsenal manager.

'We are now going into the final part of the season so it is important from a psychological point of view to have a boost from big players coming back.'

MANU supporters you seem to forget allyuh get yuh CL cup by the skin off allyuh teeth with last gasp equalizer and winner

so doh act like Arsenal is the only lucky side it have out there

all i saying is stop looking for anyexcuse to jump on a team doing better than yuhself, keep doing what you doing we will keep trying to stop dropping points, and buss all yuh ass in april


Ah usually doh engage is carrying on dis type of talk because people does let dey loyalty to players and teams cloud dey judgements but yuh set yuh self up, so let meh smack yuh back down! Fact is United won the CL, if yuh want tuh say it was lucky yuh entitled. Wey Arsenal's CL cup? Oh dats right, yuh all everyting glamor boy Henrietta tro wey when he coulda wrap it up against Barca.

As for all yuh  doin better than United, please, excuse meh but didn't United jus whipped all yuh arse in the FA cup, which means all yuh out right? United draw away in the CL all yuh draw at home and goin away to play while United comin home to play. So who doin better? The one ting yuh get right is " we (Arsenal) will keep tryin to stop dropping point", all yuh droppin points all right, and United winning games. So United will keep doing what they doing which is winning and all yuh keep 'trying to stop drop points' and come April dat game yuh biggin up will be of no consequence because all yuh will still be 'trying to stop dropping points' and United will still be winning!

Oh yeah United still in contention for 3 titles and Arsenal 2, so if that equates to Arsenal doin better than United then yuh biases also interfering with yuh ability in arithmetic!

Oh yeah, thanks for lettin me do it on the thread yuh started for yuh beloved Gooners!

i guess i need to spell it out for ya

were doing better in the league, you loose the fa cup final yuh get nothing loose the CL final yuh get nothing loose the league yuh get nothing, so you lot wet up for what 5 days, yeah we f**ked up twice one under extenuating circumstances but both results were literally down to us f**king up and not the other sides abilities.

i not bringing down manu performance, which by the way any of the top 3 now in past years would have the league practically wrapped up by now.

my point was manu fans have no reason to hate it just shows they are scared of whats coming their way, yuh liked being th ebig bully on the block in the 90's and early 00's now you got more competition on yuh heels yuh sounding petulant

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has set his sights on landing a 15-year-old Spanish prodigy by the name of Ignasi Miquel...

The youngster currently plays for Cornella youths in Catalunya, with the French manager said to be leading the race for his signature.

The centre-back has also been monitored by Manchester United, Barcelona, Valencia and more, but Arsenal are apparently favourites to sign him.

Until he turns 16 he is unable to pen a professional deal, but his birthday is not too far away: by September, Arsenal will hope to have landed the former Barcelona youth academy member.

6'2" Miquel may be eager to follow in the footsteps of fellow blaugrana alumnus Cesc Fabregas by signing on at the Emirates, having already toured Arsenal's training facilities last week.

Arsenal plan bid for Atletico Madrid starlet Ignacio Camacho
tribalfootball.com - March 09, 2008

Arsenal are chasing Atletico Madrid sensation Ignacio Camacho.

The People says Wenger knows he must act quickly if he is to lure the Spain Under-17 captain to the Emirates after the midfielder burst into prominence on his first-team debut last weekend.

Camacho was excellent as he played most of Atletico's 4-2 victory over Barcelona.

Despite his age - he turned 18 on Friday - he would still cost the Gunners more than £5million.

excellent point, i feel that may happen in the summer with gilberto leaving, however flamini is yet to sign a new contract, also wenger used the capataincy to challenge gallas to step up, wenger uses little tricks like this top motivate ppl, look at thierry when vierra left, then gilberto when thierry spent the season injured, but if flamini extends i want to seem him as captain or vice or gallas gone and flamini and cesc chare the armband

speaking of cesc the boy needs a breather, ronaldo n them getting nice lil rest with fergie pitpulls all snapping at a chance to start or even bench.

Wenger - I'll keep faith with squad in summer

By Richard Clarke

Arsène Wenger will stick with his usual cautious spending pattern over the summer.

The Arsenal manager has slowly built up his current squad in recent seasons and, this term, he has been rewarded with a sustained title chase. The Frenchman has funds available to buy when the transfer window opens once more at the end of the current campaign but he will only spend within budget and, as ever, his priority is continuity.

"I will keep faith [with them] because we have worked hard for what we have now," said Wenger speaking before the weekend.

"I have said many times, the real target of a manager is to find the balance with what comes in and what goes out and build a team with these restrictions. It is to do well with the funds available.

"We have money because we made money and we made money because we made the right decisions. I believe a football team is not about buying and selling. It is about building, patience, working together and going through a growing process.

"Also it is enjoyable now to see the team coming slowly up and see how well they can do."

That said, Wenger IS prepared to spend big but, he argues, his decision to invest in youngsters a few years ago means that, so far, he has not had to.

"I would have to be completely convinced that it is right and not stupid for the future of the Club," he said.

"But I am in a position where I anticipated the years to come and I prepared for it. [So] I have never been in a situation where I needed to take a big gamble like that."

arsene i hear yuh 100% but please deepen that squad please! win the CL and premireship and players will beg to come to the grove!

Henry finding life tough at Barcelona

Thierry Henry has admitted struggling to adapt to life at Barcelona - because he is missing his daughter.
The former Arsenal striker, 30, has not seen two-year-old Tea as often as he would like following his divorce last year shortly after his transfer to the Nou Camp.
'As you all know, I've got some personal problems and my daughter is the most important thing in my life,' Henry said. 'I'm not happy because a father that only sees his daughter five times in the last eight months cannot be.
'If you know what it is to have a daughter then you can imagine what it is like. I'm not asking you to cry for me, only that people don't talk for me.'
The France international also believes his form - he has scored seven goals in 19 Primera Liga games - has not been helped by being played out of position at Barca.
'I played for eight years in a team in a specific position and now I'm at another club in another position with a different tactical system,' he said.
'It's time to stop comparing the Barcelona Henry with the Arsenal Henry. This is the Henry that you are seeing here.'
However, Henry insisted he had no complaints with head coach Frank Rijkaard's tactics.
He said: 'I'm not asking for anything from the coach, nor am I complaining about playing on the left. I respect the coach's decision.
'In the 14 years I've been playing football I've never been satisfied with my performances and always want to do more.'

Obviously not the result(s) Arsenal fans wanted but I believe in my team and they still yet to play their closest rivals which is the best thing should Arsenal win out of those matches. All they can do is get the best results from their games which is the objective anyway!

At the risk of repeating myself, you cannot expect to win the league when all your scoring is dependent on two players. Eboue as an example has never ever scored for Arsenal & Hleb allergic to shooting. Teams are figuring out Arsenal and Arsenal have no alternate plan (it seems). they can only hope Van Persie hits some form earlier than expected.

- We have a young team they need to mature (Wenger)

- We bad lucky... always hitting post (Wenger)

- Other teams have more money to spend (Wenger)

- Pardew provoked me (Wenger)

- World Cup is the lowest standard of football. Henry shouldve gotten Golden Ball (Wenger)

- The referee was against us (Wenger)

- We missing vieira (Wenger)

- Too many fixtures (Wenger)

- The young players have it too easy. I used to shine man boots (Henry)

- I didnt see no Ronaldinho or no Eto'o tonight.. (Henry)

- They always talking about me. More than they talk about Eastenders (Henry)

- We were the better team out there  (Henry)

- We missing Vieira (Henry)


This list can go on and on, and on and on, and on and on...

when will they learn to buy some good defensive players for midfield and cover for defence and learn to be able adapt their playing style when need be so that when the bounce up a rough team like Bolton they stop getting that customary cutass???

But this is where the road ends for you.. Drogba was just too much of a man mountain for you today.

Chelsea 2-1 Arsenal
By Ian Hughes

(http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/44510000/jpg/_44510578_didier_203.jpg)

Didier Drogba's double kept Chelsea's title hopes alive while damaging Arsenal's with a win that saw them leapfrog their rivals to go second.

William Gallas hit the post from five yards in the first half but Bacary Sagna put Arsenal in front with a near-post header on 59 minutes.

Drogba equalised with a low drive after Juliano Belletti's long pass was laid off to him by Frank Lampard.

And on 82 minutes Drogba poked home the winner after a Nicolas Anelka flick-on.

With Manchester United's victory over Liverpool earlier in the day, which put them six points clear at the top of the table, both sides were eager to get more than a point from the match - but were also desperate not to lose.

Chelsea began in more cautious fashion, allowing Arsenal plenty of time on the ball, while laying in wait in their defensive third to snuff out the attacks.

With Robin van Persie and Emmanuel Eboue hugging the touchlines, Arsenal used the width to good effect but without really penetrating.

Dutchman Van Persie sliced one shot high and wide when well placed and drove in a volley that was comfortably saved by Carlo Cudicini.

But while Arsenal were on top with their short passing game in the first 20 minutes, Chelsea's more direct approach dictated the play in the second part of the first half.

A lively Drogba sparked the change and he should have scored when clean though on goal but he miscontrolled the ball.

(http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/44510000/jpg/_44510610_grant_av512x288.jpg)

As the game opened up, Chelsea scrambled clear after two goalwards toe-pokes from Emmanuel Adebayor and Eboue, and Gallas hit the upright from five yards after sliding in at the back post.

Back came Chelsea and Salomon Kalou seemed set to score but missed his kick in the penalty area before the ball was hacked away and Manuel Almunia just managed to divert Joe Cole's dangerous low cross.

The desire to win the game was obvious from both sides and straight after the interval Matthieu Flamini was prevented from giving Arsenal the advantage when his vicious volley was superbly stopped by Cudicini.

Chelsea continued with their route-one approach and Drogba was through again after a long pass by Claude Makelele but Gallas recovered to do enough to put him off.

And then Arsenal turned defence into attack, literally, as Sagna beat his marker at the near post to head in from a Fabregas corner to score his first goal for the club.

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

Interview: Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger

But the Frenchman's delight soon turned sour when he was forced off with an ankle injury - and suddenly Chelsea stepped up through the gears.

After a couple of wasted chances, most notably a scuffed shot from Michael Ballack, another long pass paid dividends as the ball eventually fell to Drogba, who lashed in a low drive from the edge of the box.

The impetus was now all with Chelsea and when substitute Anelka headed on another long ball, Drogba was there to flick the ball beyond Almunia, who could not get a strong enough hand to it.

It proved enough to secure three points for Chelsea and close the gap on United to five points, while inflicting only a second league defeat of the season on Arsenal.

Chelsea: Cudicini, Essien, Carvalho, Terry, Ashley Cole, Ballack (Belletti 70), Makelele (Anelka 70), Lampard, Joe Cole (Obi 88), Drogba, Kalou.
Subs Not Used: Hilario, Alex.

EVERYYEAR we have a thin squad, and by thin i don't mean numbers i mean experienced battlers blood thirsty warriors, i don't know what he says to the youngsters but they are conssitently impatient and want first team sweat so they go to teams like birmingham etc.

if he keeps this up no big player will want to come to arsenal it wil be a bunch of skilled european and african players who want first team games but can't make it into thier side.

hears a few names of players arsenal courted but never opened up the cheque book wider for, petr chec, christiano ronaldo, jenas, babel, van bommel, ribery, torres just to name a few.... i am begining to understand what it feels liek to be a spurs supporter, so close yet so far...come on arsene! come on gooners!

Too bad there are only six league games left.

Also I surprised that yuh didn't come in here all indignant about the tackling during the game. Aren't you the one who said that high tackling have no place in football.

I'm sure Arsenal was just trying to get some payback because we know the only way to beat them is to kick them.

Jefferz..

I mustve missed the sensible points he posted in midst of his childish rants ('snoreapool') and bunch ah senselessness he was posting that day about 'Chelsea without drogba' or 'Man Utd without CR7'.. It was just too incoherant for me to give it any time..

But if you're talking about what he said about Roman's billions, let me put forward this question in response:

In the current climate of English football, how do you propose that an ambitious club break into the Arsenal - Man United - Liverpool monopoly that has been existent for so many years?

These clubs poach the lion's share of profits from TV revenue, then swipe the best talent from the teams below them (established and youth players). If that's not bad enough, they get beneficial treatment from the FA with scheduling and I'll even go so far as to say from the officials with decisions.

That's why I can't vex with a club like Chelsea when they get some money to make a run at the big guns and break up that whole 'divine right to success' scene in the EPL. There's probably no other way to do it.

Is not like in Spain where a Real Sociedad or Villareal could make a serious run for the title in a given season with limited resources. Or like Italy where Palermo could come up and do some damage, or like Germany where Stuttgart and Hamburg could press for the title. The EPL environment is just not hospitable to that. In England is Man Utd, Arsenal and Liverpool and then the rest to scrap for the dregs.

Long live Chelsea!

Wenger unperturbed by criticism 
 
Wenger has not tasted trophy success since 2005
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has shrugged off criticism over his managerial leadership this season ahead of Sunday's game with Manchester United.

Wenger's reluctance to add to his squad in January has been pinpointed by some critics as the reason for the collapse of their challenge for honours.

"I don't mind I'm questioned," said Wenger. "I prefer I'm questioned rather than the players.

"I'm in a position where you have to accept criticism. I can handle that."

Wenger added: "My position is not my problem or worry. My only worry is to be at my best every day and to act as if I will spend the rest of my life here at the club."

The Frenchman also backed his decision not to strengthen the squad in January.  I believe we do not get the credit we deserve

Arsene Wenger


"We were top of the league, the players were doing well so why disturb the team?"

Arsenal go into Sunday's game against United knowing only a win will keep alive their slim hopes of a Premier League title.

They are six points behind the leaders with only five games remaining and on Tuesday Wenger saw his side's Champions League hopes ended at Anfield against Liverpool.

With their season fizzling out there are questions over whether Wenger was right not to bring in some strength in depth during the January transfer window.

But Wenger pinpointed injuries and poor refereeing decisions as the reason behind his side's recent poor run of results.

"I believe we have been hit very hard by injuries and decisions from the referees," said Wenger. "It is part of football, we have to swallow that and we must take the criticism.

"We fight until the end of the season with teams who have spent much more money - some teams spent over £100m - and on top of that we get slaughtered so it is not easy to take.

"I believe we do not get the credit we deserve."

"We have lost a big game, we have to swallow it and be criticised maybe but not on the basic philosophy of the club.

"We have made mistakes on the field and we did on Tuesday. But this club is admired all over world for the football we play and the quality of our behaviour and I think we have been unfairly punished in the games against Liverpool."

it pains me to say this but i would rather manu beat us like rooney does beat he gyal than chelsea win it with russian oil money and boring bullish unstylish football

manu have played consistently all season, injuries were few n far, and ronaldo played his white socks off.

what has chelsea done? bully teams? with horrible defenders like carvhalho? and buffalo soldier essien? whom i rate as a stronger more skill ful version of a player like emile heskey, no matter how good chelsea squad is they will never have the class or style that teams like manu and arsenal can produce

that said i prefer to see that type of football win anyday over a side that money built rather than skill development and planning

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand will face Arsenal despite needing three stitches in his foot in midweek.
Ferdinand suffered the injury in the victory against Roma in the Champions League at Old Trafford.

The foot was also swollen but manager Sir Alex Ferguson expects him to recover in time for the match against their title rivals.

Patrice Evra could return at left-back after missing the European game with a knock.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney are expected to be restored to the side after being on the bench against Roma.

Ferguson believes there is much more to Owen Hargreaves' game than a holding role in midfield.

Hargreaves built his reputation at Bayern Munich as someone who could break up the play.

His unselfish performances for the German giants did not go unnoticed and he secured an £17million move to United in the summer.

Hargreaves, though, has taken time to settle - mainly because of a nagging knee problem.

However, he lit up Old Trafford in midweek with marauding runs down the right flank in the absence of Ronaldo.

Hargreaves set up the goal for Carlos Tevez, which sealed a 3-0 aggregate win over Roma in the Champions League, with a cross that David Beckham would have been proud of.

He is now pushing for a place in the starting line-up against Arsenal and Ferguson feels the England international has a lot to offer.

He said: "I wanted to leave Paul Scholes out against Roma and play with three central midfielders.

"Owen was given a different type of role, which he absolutely excelled at. He was our star man.

"There are a variety of roles Owen can play, without question. He has the intelligence and application to adapt.''

While Ferguson is on a high after his side set up a meeting with Barcelona in the Champions League semi-finals, his managerial counterpart Arsene Wenger has to rally his team after they lost to Liverpool in the competition.

The Gunners are six points adrift and defeat will all but end their title challenge with only four games remaining.

Ferguson believes Arsenal's form has dipped because of injuries to key players.

He said: "You do not win games consistently without your best team.

"If you do not have your best players, it is hard to get good results.

"We have suffered like this in the past because of injuries, as have all sides.

"It is a tough league and somewhere along the along you drop points when you do not expect it.

"We lost six to Manchester City, which we did not envisage, and got beaten by Bolton.''

Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini will miss the game after being ruled out for three weeks with an ankle problem and will be replaced in the starting line-up by Gilberto.

Defender Bacary Sagna remains on the sidelines with his ankle problem but striker Robin van Persie could start after coming on as a substitute against Liverpool.

The Gunners recent meltdown has failed to convince Wenger he must embark on a summer spending spree.

Arsenal face a third successive season without silverware if they fail to beat United - and critics have suggested Wenger must loosen the purse strings when the transfer window opens, but the Frenchman retains complete faith in his current squad.

"We will continue to do what we've done. I will buy but not too much in the summer,'' he said.

"My priority is to keep this team together because we are still young, especially in some departments.

"If we can add one more body we will do so, not one in each department - just one experienced guy.''

United lie six points above Arsenal with five games remaining and Wenger claims to win the title race from this position would be the finest moment of his career.

But he also knows failure at Old Trafford will effectively spell the end of Arsenal's season.

"It will be the greatest achievement of my career to win the Premier League now because we are swimming against the stream at the moment,'' he said.

"But I still believe this team can produce it. For us the game on Sunday is the game of the season. If we do not win this game we have no chance.

"I can't understand people who say the team's season is over. Why is it over? We are not too far behind."What is at stake on Sunday is the work of a whole year. If we go there and don't believe in ourselves then it is over.

"But do you really think that we will go to Manchester United thinking that our season is over? That would be ridiculous.
"We have worked so hard since the first day of the season and we will fight until the last second of the championship.''

Almunia: Lehmann hates me

http://msn.foxsports.com/soccer/story/8028056/Almunia:-Lehmann-hates-me

Arsenal goalkeeper Manuel Almunia has finally snapped at the latest round of verbals fired in his direction by Gunners rival Jens Lehmann.

Following a start to the season characterised by less than assured goalkeeping displays, Lehmann found himself usurped as Arsene Wenger's first choice between the posts at Emirates Stadium.

Almunia's form in his team-mate's absence has seen him justify his selection as the club's recognised number one, but an outspoken Lehmann has failed to concur - often on record - with his manager's decision.

Lehmann's infamous spat on the international scene with Oliver Kahn has often made the headlines back in Germany, but this season his ire has been targeted a little closer to home; with Almunia regularly berated by his team-mate's candid comments.

This week Lehmann expressed his disdain at 'sitting on the bench behind somebody who only started to play when he was 30', and while Almunia has in the past has maintained a dignified silence, it would his patience has now run thin.

In an interview The Guardian, Almunia has spoken of his disappointment that Lehmann feels the need to so openly, and so regularly, voice his criticism.

"I'm an easy-going person," he said. "I like to treat everyone with respect and I see everyone as equals. I treat people the way I would like to be treated myself.

"To have someone here who hates me is just amazing. I know he hates me.

"Every morning I wake up I know it is going to be the same. I've had to put up with it every day since he was out of the team and even before then. I wake up and I know what it is going to be like.

"But I don't care about him any more. He can say what he likes. I come into training and I work with Lukasz Fabianski and Vito Mannone. They are better goalkeepers than him anyway."


While Almunia admits he has often felt exasperated by the situation, he is not prepared to engage in any kind of talks with his 38-year-old colleague, as he feels reconciliation is not now an option.

"It's his problem, not mine, and I don't see why I should try to talk to him about it. The truth is I don't want to talk to him. I came into training this morning and one of the press officers told me he had been saying bad things about me in the newspapers again. It didn't surprise me.

"The truth is I have got used to reading these things from him. If he was someone important to me, I would try to talk to him and see what the problem is. But he's not. So we don't talk.

"I've never been in a situation like this before in my career. Normally we goalkeepers have so much respect for each other.

"Why he doesn't respect me, I don't know. But I don't want any relationship with him. I try not to let what he says enter my mind because it's not important to me what he says or what he thinks."

Fabregas is struggling since he came back off injury and his lack of form may be the reason for Arsenal not clicking on all cylinders. Diarra looked quite impressive against Blackburn, like Fabregas he is an excellent shielder of the ball and does not give up possession cheaply. Diarra deserves an opportunity to break into the first team based on his recent form and to keep the others honest.

You'd be mad to leave Arsenal: Wenger warning to Diarra and Diaby
Last updated at 18:14pm on 28th December 2007


Arsene Wenger maintains Arsenal's "young players are in paradise" having been given the opportunity to play for the first team so early in their careers.
The Gunners currently sit second in the Barclays Premier League heading into 2008, which could prove to be a vintage year for the north London club.

Following the summer sale of talisman Thierry Henry, Wenger's emerging squad showed great character to climb to the top of the league table, before being overtaken by Manchester United on Boxing Day, as well as reaching the semi-finals of the Carling Cup and to qualify for the last 16 in Europe.
However, there have been reports of frustration in the dressing room from some of the younger players at a perceived lack of regular first-team football - with the likes of 22-year-old Lassana Diarra, only signed from Chelsea during August, and Abou Diaby, 21, revealing they could consider a future away from Arsenal if things did not improve.

The Gunners boss, though, firmly believes everyone has to be content to bide their time, rather than complain about breaks not going their way.

Wenger declared: "You tell me one club in the world, of our size, that gives a chance to the young players as we do? There is not one.

"You go to Real Madrid, you go to Milan, where do the young players play?

"So at our club young players are in paradise, because usually they have to wait to 26 or 27 to get a chance in a big club."

The Arsenal manager continued: "I try to make everybody happy, but it is impossible.

"You cannot always feel sorry for players who are a bit frustrated.

"We are not in a kindergarten here - we are in a job for men.

"Why should I come up and give explanations for every individual who is not happy? It is a joke.

"When you are a professional footballer, competition is part of your job.

"Why should we suddenly all feel surprised a player is frustrated? You cannot be at our level at one of the biggest clubs in the world, paid at a fantastic level, and have no competition."

Wenger maintained: "At the end of the day, I will act for what is good for the club, because that is my first responsibly - what it important is what is good for hundred of thousands, not what is good for one."

The Arsenal manager, however, sees no reasons why Diarra - currently behind fellow Frenchman Mathieu Flamini in the central midfield pecking order - cannot go on to be a "fantastic player" for the Gunners.

Wenger insisted: "Diarra has a 100% professional attitude every day in training. He is in the squad tomorrow [against Everton].

"For me, players like Diarra are top, top level players. If you have a period for two or three months with the team doing well and you have a player doing well in front of you that is bad luck.

"But at the end of the day, it is a job for strong people and those who stay strong always come out.

"If they join a club lower in the league then they start saying: 'I should be playing at a top club'. You expect competition at a big club.

"Diarra has the talent to be at a big club. That is where his place is. It is as simple as that.

"He wants to play, I can understand that. He is unhappy not to play which I can understand as well.

"But you have to assess yourself and stay where you belong.

"He belongs at a big club because he has the talent for it. If he continues to fight then he will come through and play."

Arsenal surrendered their lead at the top of the table following a goaless draw at Portsmouth on Boxing Day.

It was the first time the Gunners had failed to score in the Premier League this season, and was a third away [Premier League] game without a win.

Wenger is anticipating another stern examination of his side's title credentials at sixth-placed Everton tomorrow - but declared: "We will be up for it. On that front, I have no problem.

"The last three games we have not created so many chances, but in the programme we have played Chelsea, Tottenham and Portsmouth away.

"We took seven points from three very difficult games and that is not disastrous."

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/sport/football.html?in_article_id=504982&in_page_id=1779&ct=5


For all those who are clamouring for Arsene to strengthen his bench, it is not easy keeping the troops happy if they are warming the bench. Diarra is a perfect example. If he had been patient and stayed with Arsenal or if Arsene had used him more, he might have been instrumental in helping to bring home silverware this year. As I stated back in January, Fabregas had been struggling since he was injured back in December yet Arsene continued to use Fabregas and Flamini. I believe a major part of Arsenal's demise mirrors the output of Fabregas. Wenger should have utilized his squad like Fergie or the much maligned and ridiculed Benitez. Diarra could have spelled off either  Flamini or Fabregas who just ran out of gas and started to force long hopeful balls. (notice how many +40 yard passes he kept lobbing to Adebayor lately which went awry).
 Arsenal could have won silverware if Wenger rotated his squad and in so doing minimize the injuries  .  Fabregas, Flamini, Toure  and Addy were tired men at the end of the season , add this to the injuries and you live with the results. The players must be commended for giving their all and playing football at a very high level despite the adversity. A larger squad with rotation will be an improvement, without rotation  the sulking will be cancerous and the underachieving will continue.

Gooners forever!!!

He scored a great free-kick.

Philippe Senderos was given time off in order to recover from the mental blow of Arsenal's UEFA Champions League exit, according to his father.

The Gunners departed the Champions League at the quarter-final stage after they suffered a 5-3 aggregate defeat to Liverpool.
 
Senderos was criticised, by some, after he failed to mark Sami Hyypia and was easily turned by Fernando Torres during Liverpool's 4-2 triumph in the second leg at Anfield.

Alexandre Song was then a surprise replacement for the Switzerland international for last Sunday's 2-1 defeat to rivals Manchester United.

And Senderos' father, Julien, has confirmed that his son needed time to recuperate following Arsenal's European exit.

"Philippe has been on the phone to us every day for the last few days," he said in the Daily Mail.

"He was not feeling too good after Arsenal went out of the Champions League.

"Arsene Wenger gave him Sunday and Monday off so he could clear his mind and he has done that.

"But it's not the case that he is suffering from depression."

Arsenal style earns scant reward 


By David Ornstein 


On 11 February, Arsenal sat at the top of the Premier League with a five-point lead over Manchester United, while Chelsea were a further three points adrift.

And the Gunners had got there in style.

But nine weeks later, only the sense of style remains. Arsenal's lead has turned into a nine-point deficit and their 2-1 loss at Manchester United on Sunday has taken Sir Alex Ferguson's side to the brink of the title.

 606: DEBATE
Wenger is a staunch believer in the notion that a football team embodies its manager - and Arsenal have come up short this season

BBC Sport's David Ornstein

And in the Champions League, the delight which followed Arsenal's superb victory over AC Milan has long since given way to the pain of their quarter-final defeat by Liverpool.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes a combination of bad luck, poor refereeing decisions and injuries are to blame.

But is Wenger's judgement beginning to look a little impaired after three seasons without a trophy? And what needs to be done to prevent the barren spell continuing?


HOW HAS A FIVE-POINT LEAD TURNED INTO A NINE-POINT DEFICIT?
When Thierry Henry, then Arsenal's talismanic captain, was sold to Barcelona in the summer of 2007, few gave Wenger's young charges any hope of challenging for major honours.

But the low expectations appeared to lift any pressure.

Emmanuel Adebayor and Robin van Persie filled the void left by Henry in attack, and a run of 15 wins and two draws in all competitions had the purists purring and Arsenal in control.

 
Eduardo had contributed 12 goals before his horrific injury

But a 5-1 drubbing by Tottenham in the Carling Cup semi-final second-leg in January hinted at problems - not least when Adebayor and 20-year-old Nicklas Bendtner were involved in an ugly on-field confrontation.

Admittedly, Arsenal had fielded a weakened side but a heavy defeat by such bitter rivals seemed to have a significant impact.

Wenger named another under-strength team to face Man Utd away in the FA Cup, and saw his side soundly thrashed 4-0. Although Wenger claimed that the domestic cups were not Arsenal's priority, serious damage was done.

If that setback was mainly psychological, there was, sadly, physical damage to come when in-form striker Eduardo da Silva suffered a broken leg at Birmingham.

The Gunners were clearly shaken by the horrific injury and squandered a number of glorious opportunities before conceding an equaliser at the death to draw 2-2 at St Andrews.

It was a turning point in the season. Arsenal have won just two of their last 13 games in all competitions since.

They have seen leads turn into draws or defeats on five of those occasions and struggled against teams they had were expected to beat such as Aston Villa, Wigan and Middlesbrough.


IS THE SQUAD STRONG ENOUGH?
There is no doubt Arsenal have suffered injury problems.

Van Persie and Tomas Rosicky have been out for most of the season, and when Eduardo also got injured there was little back-up for Arsenal's forward line.

The previously excellent Adebayor began to tire, Bendtner has failed to really convince he has enough quality, while Theo Walcott has been preferred as an impact substitute.

So should Arsenal have been in the market for Nicolas Anelka, who joined Chelsea for £15m from Bolton in January?

 
Bendtner (left) and Adebayor's square up at Tottenham

At the back, Arsenal developed a deep vulnerability. Losing the excellent Bacary Sagna to injury was a blow, but did Wenger make the right decision in moving Kolo Toure from centre-back to right-back?

Philippe Senderos came in to the centre, and he has suffered a torrid time.

Then Arsenal lost Mathieu Flamini, arguably Arsenal's most consistent performer, when he picked up an injury during the Champions League quarter-final second-leg at Anfield.

He was replaced by Gilberto Silva, but the Brazilian looks a shadow of the player he was last season, and is almost certain to leave in the summer.

Cesc Fabregas has appeared burdened by expectation and workload, and in need of a rest. But again, it seemed there was no suitable replacement, so the youngster was forced to play on.

Rather than enhancing his squad in January, Wenger actually reduced the numbers by agreeing to let highly rated midfielder Lassana Diarra, signed from Chelsea the previous summer, leave for Portsmouth.

Wenger insisted his squad was strong enough to maintain its challenge for silverware but results have proved him wrong.

The Frenchman is adamant he will sign only one experienced player before next season gets underway, despite pressure from supporters and the media to bring in new faces.

Can that really be enough?


MIGHT ARSENAL LOSE KEY PLAYERS THIS SUMMER?
The 38-year-old Jens Lehmann is no longer the first-choice keeper and has repeatedly criticised rival Manuel Almunia in public. Having almost rejoined Borussia Dortmund in January and recently spoken out against Wenger, he is widely expected to leave.

 
Lehmann could be on his way out of Arsenal

Senderos is error-prone and his performance against Liverpool in the Champions League is reported to have left him in tears and unable to take his place in the squad for Old Trafford.

The all-important Fabregas, still just 20, is set to be keenly pursued by both Real Madrid and Barcelona this summer but he is tied to a long-term contract. Arsenal are sure to refuse all approaches.

Having allegedly met Inter Milan officials the day before Arsenal's win against AC Milan, midfielder Alexander Hleb is said to be a serious target for the Italian giants, while Flamini's contract expires in the summer.

The aging Lehmann and Gilberto aside, the loss of any of these players would pose a massive problem for Wenger.

And who is to say they may not be tempted to ply their trade at another club, even if it might mean playing a slightly less beautiful game?

Van Persie has gone on record as saying "we are like 11 actors, we have to give enjoyment to people buying a ticket".

But some of his team-mates may rate silverware more highly.


HAS WENGER GOT KEY DECISIONS WRONG?
Wenger has conceded he probably should have made signings in January, and it is fair to say that no-one could have foreseen Arsenal's injury crisis.

But, along with the Wenger's questionable deployment of Toure at full-back, some may feel he has erred in his selection of Gallas as captain.

The French international has sometimes fallen short of being a leader, most notably when he abandoned his team-mates to sit in the Birmingham half when his side faced a penalty. After the same match, he refused to leave the pitch.

 
Gallas's captaincy of Arsenal has been called into question

Gallas also claimed he has no friends at the club and he certainly won few among the fans for his display on a day when Arsenal's youngsters were desperate for guidance.

Wenger says a team is modelled in its manager's image. And there is much to admire - the flair, ability and their commendable commitment to attacking football.

But are they - and ultimately Wenger - sometimes psychologically fragile and prone to being overwhelmed by a sense of injustice?

Yes, there have been dubious penalty decisions which went against Arsenal in the Champions League, plus a lengthy injury list.

The line between success and failure can be very fine indeed. But perhaps cracks have appeared at Arsenal that need more than papering over.

And maybe - in contrast to Wenger's opinion, and despite the side's many moments of brilliance - this current crop at Arsenal are actually just not quite good enough.


and he's probably right

spend d money arsne!

bring on reading! our last home game of the season lets give the fans a show of the team they have loved and supported so heartbreakingly long

holding my breath until thursday by then we will know if flamini stays

however i still believe in my manager and his decisions, i want him to buy experience this summer.

if helb n flamini they will definatley got fo rmore than we paid for them thus adding more to the war chest that has been available to wenger for the last few years.

bbc.com says it is still mathmatically possible for arsenal to win but would require manu and chelski to loose both thier last games, and arsenal win thiers, highly unlikely.

but who knows, if spurs developed the shits on the last day of the season to block out arsenal from champs league spot maybe some voodoo migth be inorder

ps thanks chelsea for bringing manu crashing back to earth, but blame newcastle for handing manu 10 goals this season

We can only dream. Lol. Ver, very unlikely. If Chelsea draws bothe their games and Man Utd draw and lose, we can take it. Very unlikey. Man Utd has always been able to bounce back everytime they've had a set back. I expect much of the same.

he want to keep Flamini, but telling him quote, "we would hope he doesnt go to a new club for a few bucks more'.

de man establish himself in the side as a critical element, did everything and more.

show him the money!

all this talk about financial policy and structure.. man must stay in arsenal for what? to play some small touch football and collect small pay only to get either 1 yr contract or ditched on your 30th birthday?? All this while the cheap ass ownership rake in the money for deyself?

oh bout stay and be part of something special. so what Arsenal is the only team that could offer something special in football? steups

I hope Flamini, Hleb and Gilberto Silva buss it sooner than later.

wouldnt flamini be leaving for free? his contract is up.
and from what i read, arsenal would probably get less for hleb than they paid for him.

Quoted from: http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/premier-league/arsenals-flamini-set-for-milan-as-hleb-mulls-inter-move-816695.html

Hleb, who is 27 next month, has been offered an impressive four-year deal by Inter, but will hold talks with Arsenal this week. He is understood to be concerned that, after so much promise this season, it is now the third campaign in a row that Arsenal have failed to win a trophy. Much to Wenger's annoyance, the Italian champions have openly declared their interest in the Belarussian who joined Arsenal from Stuttgart in July 2005. He has two years left on his present deal but article 17 of FIFA regulations would allow him to leave for a fixed fee, likely to be significantly less than the £11.2m Arsenal paid for him.

Derby 2-6 Arsenal: Joy of six for Gunners

Substitute Emmanuel Adebayor struck his second hat-trick against Derby this season as Arsenal ran riot in the 6-2 victory at Pride Park.
The Gunners, 5-0 winners at The Emirates earlier in the season, made sure of third spot with a rousing second-half performance against the relegated Rams, who moved a step closer to being named the Premier League's worst ever side.

Arsene Wenger's side could count themselves fortunate to lead 2-1 at the break after goals from Nicklas Bendtner and Robin van Persie either side of a Jay McEveley effort.

• Wenger - Adebayor is class

Theo Walcott was on target too, but the second half belonged to their Togo international who struck three times to take his season's tally to 30, with Rob Earnshaw grabbing a consolation in this eight-goal thriller.

Wenger handed a first league start to goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski, while Denilson, Bendtner and Emmanuel Eboue were all drafted in.

Paul Jewell made changes of his own, recalling McEveley, Emanuel Villa and Darren Moore as he went in search of a maiden league win as Rams boss.

A heavy downpour prior to kick-off seemed certain to play into the visitors' hands, adding extra zip to the Pride Park pitch.

But it was not to be the case as the relegated Rams, now 30 league games without a victory, began the more purposefully.

New assistant boss Chris Hutchings had insisted upon his arrival that a win was his one and only objective between now and the end of the campaign, and County were certainly setting about giving him what he wanted.

Villa only just failed to connect with Tyrone Mears' inviting low cross before Mile Sterjovski's drive took a major deflection off Alex Song beyond the wrong-footed Fabianski, only for the ball to creep past the right post.

It was hardly the start Wenger would have hoped for as the Gunners struggled to find their rhythm and they could count themselves fortunate when Villa's bullet header flew just over.

But the Rams paid for their profligacy in the 25th minute when Moore's mistake gave the ball to Bendtner, who played a one-two with Van Persie, before coolly slotting the ball into the left corner.

And soon Derby had the equaliser they deserved.

Robbie Savage's inswinging free-kick landed on the six-yard line and McEveley reacted first to hook home.

Fabregas extended Carroll with a ferocious shot from the edge of the area and the ball was cleared.

But the defensive deficiencies that have blighted Jewell's side were apparent again when Van Persie had all the time in the world to chest down Kolo Toure's floated pass and volley home in style.

It was a goal which had all the hallmarks of his compatriot, Gunners legend Dennis Bergkamp.

The goal proved to be the striker's final telling act of the game as he was replaced by Adebayor after the break.

Derby's brave first-half performance appeared to have taken its toll as the Gunners' pace and movement began to stretch tiring legs.

Twice Toure, again playing at right-back, fired over, the second opportunity created by Fabregas' brilliant backheel.

Again the Rams had Carroll to thank in the 58th minute when he saved superbly with his feet from Adebayor.

But there was nothing he could do to deny the Togo international a minute later.

Walcott took full advantage of Stubbs' slip to cut the ball back to Eboue, who gave Adebayor the simplest of finishes.

Walcott should have made it four when he was slid through by Bendtner but the teenager's indifferent finishing was again apparent as he fired wide.

By now it was looking all too easy for the Gunners as they toyed with home side, creating chances at will.

But the Rams reduced the deficit to just a single goal with effectively their first attack of the second period, substitute Rob Earnshaw opening his right foot up to stroke beyond Fabianski.

Yet within a minute the two-goal cushion was restored, Gael Clichy pinging a pinpoint pass to Walcott wide on the left before the youngster cut inside and curled into the top-right corner.

Adebayor grabbed another poacher's goal, sliding to convert another Clichy assist with 10 minutes remaining before he wrapped up his hat-trick from an acute angle in added time.



Wenger - Adebayor is class
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger hailed the heroics of hat-trick hero Emmanuel Adebayor - and then admitted he would have been happy had the striker scored half of this season's goal tally.

Asked if he expected the forward to reach the 30-goal barrier, Wenger replied: 'No, but I feel in this team you can score goals.


'You will always get good service, it is not only down to the strikers. Everybody tries to make life easier for the strikers.'

And after acknowledging he had anticipated around 15 goals from his leading marksman, he added: 'I think he took advantage of the work the team had done in the first half, it was easier. We know he can score goals, he has now scored 24 (in the league) but Van Persie played well and (Nicklas) Bendtner played well as well.'



The Gunners duo were both on target in the first half, their efforts sandwiched in between a rare strike from Jay McEveley.


Van Persie's goal had all the hallmarks of his former Arsenal team-mate and fellow Dutchman Dennis Bergkamp as he chested Kolo Toure's floated pass and sent a ferocious volley beyond Roy Carroll.
At that stage, a result still appeared within the Rams' grasp after an impressive first-half display.

But Adebayor's three-goal salvo and brilliant curling effort from Theo Walcott ensured their winless streak was stretched to 30 league games.

And Wenger insists his side, who led the league for six months of the campaign, are stronger than when they began the season.

'This team for me has a good future,' he added. 'We have 77 points tonight and we wanted to win our three games remaining this season.

'For me the team has grown and we're now stronger than we were at the start of the season but we went through a difficult patch in March and we have paid for that.'



The wait for a league win for Paul Jewell continues but it is unlikely the Rams boss would have expected it to come tonight.
And he admitted his tiring team, who have now conceded 82 times in 36 games, stood no chance when the Gunners raised the bar in the second half.

'The lads had put so much effort into the first half they were out on their feet and there's not a worse team to be playing when you are like that,' he said.



'Arsene has just said to me then when his team play like that he would hate to play them. When they play like that they are unstoppable.'
However, he insists it is not their performances against the Gunners - against whom they have conceded 11 times this season - which have cost them.

'We can't be judged against Arsenal, our season was well and truly decided before we played Arsenal,' he added.

'Their quality shows in their substitutions. They brought on a World Cup winner (Gilberto), one of the best players in Europe, if not the world (Adebayor) and a player who would command millions of pounds in the transfer market (Johan Djourou).

'We can't compare apples with apples at the moment.'

I had this in my last post. From your response on Hleb, I'm guessing you didn't see it.

Quoted from: http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/premier-league/arsenals-flamini-set-for-milan-as-hleb-mulls-inter-move-816695.html

Hleb, who is 27 next month, has been offered an impressive four-year deal by Inter, but will hold talks with Arsenal this week. He is understood to be concerned that, after so much promise this season, it is now the third campaign in a row that Arsenal have failed to win a trophy. Much to Wenger's annoyance, the Italian champions have openly declared their interest in the Belarussian who joined Arsenal from Stuttgart in July 2005. He has two years left on his present deal but article 17 of FIFA regulations would allow him to leave for a fixed fee, likely to be significantly less than the £11.2m Arsenal paid for him.

nope didnt see it

i hope wenger has chosen men of character as he has in the past, campbell and lauren left because of the one year deal after 30 wenger instills (i'd take that right now)
cashley cole left for money end of story, thierry left for pastures new not greener, some may say hopfully silver pastures, gilberto wil go for playing time and age, flamini, well dare i say if we off load gallas, helb n flamini will stay, stil think letting diarra go was absolute f**kery
well here's to the next two games, praying a voodoo play on man u and chelsea, and they graciously hand it to us, i am sure both teams wil have thier eyes on the champs league especially chelsea as they have never reached the final
and lord fadder let wenger spend spend spend spend spend spend, i say a quality center back, solid midfeilder, better striker, to replace eduardo till he's back, and shithound bendtner who has woefully underperfromed this season bar goals at liverpool and spurs.

chirstal mighty this season should have proven things to wenger, that although great things may come to this team we need a stronger bench and open the farking coffers.
all while maintaining club policy and standards.

Arsène Wenger believes Arsenal must stick to their wage structure in order to safeguard the future of the Club.

With summer just around the corner, the manager knows there are contracts to be re-negotiated and signings to be made. However, despite the success of Emirates Stadium, the Club are many years from paying off the 'mortgage' on their new ground. Wenger has continually stated his summer aims are to keep his existing squad and add "one or two" new faces. But he will remain within budget.

At his pre-match press conference on Friday, the manager was asked if the Club could afford to keep a tight wage structure if they want to keep players or attract new ones.

“I would rather take it the other way," Wenger replied. "We cannot afford not to keep it. It is as simple as that.

"We have to respect that, despite what people say, we have £360 million debt [on Emirates Stadium].

"So we have to respect the wages structure or we will go bust. Therefore it is not that you cannot respect the wages structure, we cannot afford not to do it.”
Title: Re: ARSENAL FOREVER
Post by: GunnerStunner on May 02, 2008, 12:44:01 PM
Arsène Wenger has brushed off suggestions his Arsenal side may start to break up over the summer.

The team's failure to land a trophy this season coupled with the manager's intention to stick with an established wage structure has ventured some to suggest there could be exits from Emirates Stadium this summer.

"No, not at all," said Wenger in response. "We have have only one player who is free, that is Mathieu Flamini. He can go where he wants but he can as well stay.”

You can infer from that answer that the rest of the Arsenal squad have existing contracts and do not control their own destiny. The most speculation surrounds Alex Hleb, who is linked with a move to Inter.

“Alex Hleb has two years’ contract
," said Wenger unequivocally. "He is not for sale.”
Arsène Wenger had set the end of April as the deadline for the out-of-contract midfielder to decide his future. However "negotiation problems" have held up the process. Now, the Arsenal manager expects a resolution by Monday.

“It will be sorted out over the weekend," said Wenger. "Will he stay or not? That is down to him but the deadline is Sunday, Monday latest.

"The deadline moved for negotiation problems. Only he could tell you [whether he will go or not]. For me yes he stays, but does he tell me the complete truth, I don’t know.

"Ideally I want him to stay, but he’s free. That means if you get £2million here, £4 million somewhere else, you can go to the one who gives you four, or you can as well stay to the one who gives you two.

“He is free to make a decision and you have to accept the market. You listen to everybody in Europe and take some time, that’s why the situation has lasted a little bit. But overall he’s free to go where he wants. You have to accept that because he’s not linked by a contract.

Flamini has been superb for Arsenal this season but, although Wenger wants him to stay, the manager is confident that his side would cope if he did decide to go.

“[If he goes] we will find a solution, don’t worry," said the 58-year-old.

so much for the famed policy of planning for the future..

Flamini set to sign, claim Milan

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/teams/a/arsenal/7383314.stm

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has claimed that Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini is on the verge of signing for the Italian club.

"Flamini will arrive tonight in Milan and will sign a four-year contract," he said after Sunday's 2-1 win over Inter.

The French midfielder's contract with the Gunners expires at the end of this season - and manager Arsene Wenger has admitted he is wary Flamini will leave.

The 24-year-old is expected to undergo a medical at the San Siro on Monday.

Despite the offer of a new five-year deal from Arsenal, Flamini's future remains unresolved and both AC Milan and Juventus are reported to have been tracking the France international.

Following Arsenal's 1-0 win over Everton on Sunday, the Gunners' last home game of the season, Wenger conceded that he was not "super-confident" Flamini would still be with the club next season.

"Frankly, I don't know [if he is staying]," said Wenger.

"But if you ask me was I overall super-confident, I would say no. He has an offer on the table which is valid until tomorrow [Monday], then we will see.

"We have done what we had to do, it is now down to him to make a decision.

"My ideal solution is that he stays, so I am not happy if he goes - but we've done everything we can.

"We can't wait until July. You could lose players if they come on the market."

Meanwhile, Milan club owner Silvio Berlusconi has cast fresh doubt over the potential signing of Barcelona star Ronaldinho.

"I have always been doubtful over whether Ronaldinho is needed, at this point I really think we don't need him," he said.

The Italian club has agreed terms with the 28-year-old Brazilian playmaker but failed to settle on a mutually satisfactory transfer fee with Barcelona during preliminary talks.

this does not erode nor debase  the policy at arsenal.

 it is one player whom after several years at arsenal finally became the player we always knew he could become, only to loose him to a big money deal that he himself would take. We prefer players who play for the love of the game rather than the money in the game, call us what you like, we do not bend for anyone. we will continue with our policy and in a few years our stadium is paid off and the continued profits will make us a force to be reckoned with.

 its not something we are happy about but i guarantee life goes on just as Thierry left.

trust me it just means theres an opening for anther similar or better player

Milan confirmed the deal.

(http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa133/peong21/10189_news.jpg)

Mathieu Flamini e il Milan: il suo primo contratto con il club rossonero partirà il 1' luglio 2008 con durata fino al 30 giugno 2012. Titolare dell'Arsenal, desiderato da grandi club di prima fascia, Flamini è del Milan.

MILANO - Il numero 16 dell'Arsenal, presente contro il Milan in Champions League fra febbraio e marzo sia all'Emirates Stadium che a San Siro, è a tutti gli effetti rossonero. Già Nazionale Under 21 in Francia, ha esordito nella Nazionale allenata da Raymond Domenech il 16 Novembre 2007 nell'amichevole tra Francia e Marocco, ed è molto probabile che venga convocato ad Euro 2008. Cresciuto nell' Olympique Marsiglia, Flamini ha esordito in prima squadra il 23 Dicembre 2003 in un match di Ligue 1 contro il Tolosa: qualche mese dopo dopo il trasferimento all'Arsenal, alla corte di Arsène Wenger, dove debutta in Premier League il 15 Agosto 2004 in Everton-Arsenal 1-4.

Tra le esperienze del neo-rossonero c'è già, chiara affinità elettiva con il suo nuovo Club, una finale di Champions League nel 2006, proprio in Francia, allo stadio parigino di Saint Denis: Barcellona-Arsenal 2-1. Il sito ufficiale dei Gunners lo definisce centrocampista eclettico e combattivo, mentre è notorio il grande interesse mostrato nei suoi confronti da parte di grandi società del calcio spagnolo. tedesco e italiano. Mathieu Flamini ha voluto in ogni caso tenere fede al suo principale orientamento, il Milan, ed è per questo che ieri sera è atterrato ai voli privati dell'Ata di Linate prima di recarsi nel centro di Milano per una puntata prima in albergo e poi al ristorante con i dirigenti rossoneri. Oggi le visite mediche: tutto ok.

and then when he do come up trumps and show himself as an irreplaceable figure in the Arsenal midfield, Wenger cyah show him de money. Want to keep him on small paper probably to ditch him at age 30, and lecture man about 'what we have here at the club'.

how can you say i am confused? you must be huffing diesel, very simple, flamini came to us on a free, and ha snow left us on a free, wanted more money, we weren't prepared and never have been prepared to break the bank for any one player, nor will we pay more than what a player is really worth, fact remains gilberto was stand in captain last year when thierry was injured and lead from the front, you think any manager woulda drop the vice captian to appease a young French player, you always pick your best team.

disappointed he left but cesc stil there and i believe helb will be too, after gallas antics i would like to see him leave.

making room for some serious players as wenger said one or two, i hope he gets three plus young carlos vela is coming back to arsenal after out on loan in spain. good things to come from the youth ranks again.

I thought Gilberto was on his way out too ...

But when Henry left people said the squad was falling apart. A few months later people were saying the team was stronger without him.  Who cares what people are saying now? Flamini is leaving. Small thing. I'm already over it. The club will move on.

Not that he isn't a loss but Arsenal is overloaded in central midfield. Just as Flamini stepped up this season, next season we might see Diaby or Denilson rise. Wenger might go out and buy someone else. No reason for panic.

The areas Arsenal need to strengthen remain the same with or without Flamini.

The man gone to a bigger club for more money.  Why even a discussion about "love of game" and all that ass-ness.  So Milan players don't "love the game" as much as Arsenal men? Steupsssssssssss.  Arsenal continually losing young talent, because they don't want to pay the piper. Why not offer him money somewhere close to his market value (i.e. what many other teams are gladly willing to pay him).... TV rights going up, ticket prices, endorsements... But they have a policy that players salaries must remain stingily modest.  Hleb u next padna.... bigger club, chances to ACTUALLY win titles now, more money? Even a retarded 2 year old could make dat decision.....

a greedy money hungry 2 year old

so you at yuh job now gunner.... a bigger, more recognized firm swoop in for yuh.. offering much more money, a penthouse window office and a boss 401 K.. would you stay at your current company "for the love of the job?"  if yes....... u is a ass, and sorry for the inconvenience...

we will continue with our policy and in a few years our stadium is paid off and the continued profits will make us a force to be reckoned with.

You real confused yes.

Earlier yuh was saying that Arsenal have money but Wenger don't want to spend it. Now they have a stadium to pay off and they trying to save money? Also I don't know what stadium gets paid off for in "a few years".


how can you say i am confused? you must be huffing diesel, very simple, flamini came to us on a free, and ha snow left us on a free, wanted more money, we weren't prepared and never have been prepared to break the bank for any one player, nor will we pay more than what a player is really worth, fact remains gilberto was stand in captain last year when thierry was injured and lead from the front, you think any manager woulda drop the vice captian to appease a young French player, you always pick your best team.

disappointed he left but cesc stil there and i believe helb will be too, after gallas antics i would like to see him leave.

making room for some serious players as wenger said one or two, i hope he gets three plus young carlos vela is coming back to arsenal after out on loan in spain. good things to come from the youth ranks again.


question: If Arsenal actually valued Flamini wouldn't they have either..1) extended his contract the season before he can walk for free. 2) sell him before he can walk for free and get some value from a young player who is leaving anyway. You will hardly ever hear of a valued 24 year old being able to walk for free. Flamini burned a lot of bridges to come to Arsenal. Maybe the club took it for granted that he wanted to be there and didn't make the moves necessary to keep his services. Gunner, can you fill me in with what happened there cuz I doh have the details and it sounds strange that a club that is as ruthless and business like as any has let such a young player slip away.

And why would you want Gallas to leave. Here is a man who burned a lot bridges to leave big money Chelsea that was touted to win everything to move to Arsenal so he could enjoy his football more and play in his preferred position. What were you saying earlier about love of the game? Surely you could forgive he man for a lapse in judgement when he so clearly fulfilled that important criteria.

And cut Flamini some slack. Is not like the man went Dubai or Saudi Arabia. He went to a bigger more successful club than Arsenal, so it obviously wasn't all about the money. Plus check the man last name. He gone back to the land of his forefathers  ;)

what morals? How many Arsenal players actually started their career at the youth academy? Most of the senior team was poached from others clubs and they sure ain't making less money at Arsenal than where they were before (Gallas excluded  :devil:). Do you feel sympathy for clubs like Barca and Marseille when Arsenal snaps up their youth prodigies like Fabregas and Flamini by getting them to sign pro contracts before they can sign one in their homeland. Do you say we don't want these players..they have no morals for leaving the teams that nurtured them. By your standards, your team is rife with money grubbing mercenaries? What good for the goose, good for the gander and morals have nutten to do with it. Arsenal is a club and a business and as long as Flamini is the best player for his position that they can attain, they will talk up loyalty and all the rest of bs, but at the end of the day he is expendable when someone better comes along. Clubs have no allegiance to players breds. Thought you'd know that. That is only talk for players who extremely good/marketable and or have plenty potential. Flamini buss his tail for Arsenal always giving 110%. Arsenal fans should be thanking him for being such a good servant for the four years he was there.

i think he end up in the side becuase Gilberto get outta favor after Copa America.

or am I thinking bout the previous season?

anyway my point is that the fellas was not wanted then he showed what he could do and then jackass Wenger still couldn't do a deal in order to make him stay especially after seeing how well the team played with him in it.

First post on the board, don't kill me today

JDB,

It is stated by the Arsenal Board that they will be debt free by the end of 2009. Arsenal's debt was around 400 Mil, they got 100 M upfront from the stadium naming rights, 50 M upfront from Nike.
They auctioned off parts of Highbury, and are building apartment homes on the site ... I think they're calling it Highbury Square. Anyway, those are probably all sold by now but they won't get the money until they're complete, they will sell for 250 Mil minimum. So they're also into property development.
That's good business right there.
See how a 60,000 seat top of the line stadium can be paid off in "a few years"?

Debt free, no foreign investor. Unlike the other top clubs in England who cannot break even in the near future.

Flamini left for money, can't really blame him for that. It will always happen when Milan and Real knock at the door.
Arsenal got him on a free, he left on a free. We didn't really value him until this year, Wenger tried to sell him last year.
I think Flamini's agent said to him .. "You can go to portsmouth now, or play your a$$ off next season and leave on a free to a top club for top money."
Arsenal offered 55,000 a week, take it or leave it.
The bigger picture is that we let Diarra leave to Portsmouth in January, he was upset at not playing because of Flamini. Now they're both gone. Go figure.
There is Denilson (who captained Brazil at youth levels), Song, Diaby.
Wenger says he'll buy a CB, and a creative midfielder in the summer.
With a new CB, Toure can also slip into the DM role.


Hleb can invoke the Webster clause and buy out the rest of his contract and go to Inter, Arsene says Hleb is staying.


This summer is starting to look like last year, David Dein left, and Henry left.
So far this year, Keith Edelman left, and Flamini.
They got rid of Edelman because he did his job, now they want a more football-based Managing Director.

But somehow, Arsenal always come back strong, with buys like Sanga and Eduardo.
On that note, Eduardo is recovering well, in Brazil in Ronaldo's R9 clinic. He might be back in training sooner than expected.

Post by: MarylandTrini on May 07, 2008, 02:19:03 PM
Look at the state of Liverpool's board and Chelsea and ManU's debt, and you can see why Arsenal is sacrificing a few cheap summers and empty trophy cabinet, in order to be self sufficient and break even by 2010.
What is suprising is that after selling Henry and actually making a PROFIT last summer in transfers, they're finishing 20 points above the year before, and 4 points off the top of the table.

Only one team can win the trophy, and this time on Sunday, either ManU or Chelsea fans will be feeling worse than an Arsenal fan

welcome to the board marylandtrini..

nice to see an objective minded arsenal fan in here for a change.

my question is, for how much longer do you think that strict adherance to the wage structure will be sustainable in the current climate of football?

You have a guy like Flamini who is 1) young.. 2) a lynchpin at the heart of your midfield... 3) playing in a position which is the hardest to fill in all of football.. defensive midfielder..  4) being coveted by the best clubs in europe.

Yet you offering this man a meagre 55k a week ???

that is pretty average by EPL standards, and a slap in the face.

If Arsenal are in such a favorable financial position as you claim in comparison to the other clubs around then they can sure as hell invest more money in the playing staff. There is a price to success even if it means pushing back their debt free ambitions a couple years. Whats gonna be the case when they're debt free anyway?
Title: Re: ARSENAL FOREVER
Post by: MarylandTrini on May 07, 2008, 03:38:34 PM
Arsenal's wage structure is one thing that I don't agree with. I agree with a future salary cap of some sort because it's getting ridiculous, but Arsenal should be paying players their market wage. Loyalty to club is not enough anymore, especially with recruited players.

They're not in that favourable financial position as of yet, that 250 million from the Highbury sale hasn't come in yet.
After the debt is paid off,  Arsenal fans are hoping to see bigger transfers and higher salaries, because our budget will allow for it.

Think about this ... if something happens to Roman, or Liverpool's owners decides to cut their losses, what next?
They would become the next Leeds.

Theres an American, and Usmanov, both want ownership of AFC, but the board signed a lockdown agreement. I think thats the better way to go.

your attempt at showing how and when Arsenal pays off the 350 million pound remaining debt is so laughable.  Even recent modest estimates from BBC show YEARS before it is seriously idented. Go read some facts (very simple using the net) come back and then we'll talk.  Cause right now it seems that you have not a grasp on how finances and such severe debt works.

According to the Arsenal board (who should know the facts), the debt will be paid off by the end of next year.
Like I said before, they are going to make at least 250 million from the Highbury Square apartments.
I think every loan can be paid off early.

If you believe all that you read, it seems that Europe's top clubs are picking at the carcass of an unsuccessful Arsenal season hoping to gobble up the most tasty morsels.
 
Mathieu Flamini has gone and, they say, Alex Hleb plus even Cesc Fabregas may follow.
 
But it was a perception rubbished by Arsène Wenger at his pre-match press conference on Friday. The Arsenal manager says the players who have gone already will be the only ones to depart and he has had calls from 220 players who want to join his side.
 
The Club could not stop Flamini agreeing to join Milan this week. The out-of-contract French midfielder was offered an attractive deal by Arsenal but chose to go to Italy. Jens Lehmann is also going because his deal also ends in the summer. However, according to Wenger, they will be the only players using the Emirates Stadium exit this season.
 
"Look, [apart from Lehmann] there is one player who is free," the 58-year-old. "He has already left. For me, 98 per cent of the squad will be here next season. And the two per cent have already gone.
 
"The rest are all under contract. If anybody wants to buy a player he has to call me. I can give you my number if you want because maybe some ignore that I have a phone.
 
"What is unbelievable is I’m sitting here [at the press conference and it is] like we have killed all the players. Yet when I go to my office I have 220 calls from players who want to come in."
 
It has been suggested that Hleb may employ the new Webster clause and buy out his own contract.
 
"That is not as simple as it looks," retorted Wenger. "And you should not forget that what players can do to us we can do to them.
 
"The Webster clause is not easy, you can't come in next day and buy out. There is no rule that says what it is all about.

"You have to go to a tribunal and then to FIFA and if you don't agree with FIFA [you] have to go to ACAS. It takes a lot of months. And you can be banned for the whole period if it is not done in a proper way."

"We have a great set of players here with a fantastic team spirit. We have had a good season but next season we want to go one better by winning a trophy."

Wenger warns United to expect a fight :duel:
by Tom Kell, 11 May 2008


Gunners go out with a win


The dust has not even begun to settle on this season, but Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has already warned Manchester United that they will have a mighty big battle on their hands to retain their title next year.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s side won his and their 10th Premier League crown on Sunday thanks to a 2-0 victory over Wigan that left Chelsea two points adrift in the race for top spot.
There is little doubt that Arsenal would have been awarded top marks for artistic impression this year but, having led the pack at times, their bid to bring the title back to North London collapsed over Easter.
The Gunners brought the curtain down on their season with a 1-0 win over Sunderland, after which Wenger made it plain that he and his team will be aiming high when the new campaigns rolls around.
"The message I have is, 'Congratulations and get ready for the fight next year', said the Frenchman. “This win gives us 83 points which is respectable. I have won championships with fewer than that and it highlights the level of competition.
"There was very little difference between the three teams who fought for the championship and, for any little weakness, you were punished.
"Manchester United made the difference at home. They had 16 victories at Old Trafford and used that advantage. It feels like an anticlimax for us. It's disappointing but there's hope for the future because we have such a young side.
"We had a very young side here: the average age was 22.3 without the bench, and with the bench it would have gone down to 20. I think we can only be stronger next season. I think we have learned."
The shining light in The Black Cats’ season has been Kenwyne Jones, and manager Roy Keane confirmed after the game with Arsenal that the Trinidad and Tobago international went off injured, forcing him out of a potential international date with England on June 1.
"Kenwyne chipped a bone in his wrist and he'll be out for about six weeks,” said Keane. :o “He was a big loss to us here and it's disappointing, but we're fortunate it's happened on the last day of the season when it doesn't really matter."

Arsène Wenger intends to start moulding his squad for next season straight away and is looking to bring in a new signing "in the next two or three weeks".

Arsenal ended their season on Sunday with a 1-0 win at Sunderland. It left them on 83 points, some 15 more than last season but still four adrift of champions Manchester United.

Wenger is adamant there is little wrong with his side and talks of making only "one or two" signings this summer. His intention is to seal the first deal sooner rather than later.

“I know what I want and I am very confident," he said. "I hope to turn that around in the next two or three weeks. But the fans should be re-assured by what they see."

Wenger's two major acquisitions last summer, Bacary Sagna and Eduardo, were new to English football. This time around, it seems he'd like someone who has already acclimatised.

“It would be better to buy someone who has played in England because they are less risky," said the manager. "But it costs more money if they are from the Premier League, so maybe I will try to do both."

hmmm barry maybe? e'to? dunne? an unknown who fits right in and becomes famous?

personally i would like to see at least on eenglish buy at arsenal, but youngster randall showed a good performance against sunderland

Arsène Wenger argues it would be "criminal" if his Arsenal side did not kick on from this season.

The Gunners ended their 2007/08 campaign with a 1-0 win at Sunderland on Sunday.

They finished one place and 15 points better off than 12 months ago yet, considering their flying start, the failure to land a major trophy can only be seen as a disappointment. But, according to the manager, it is hardly "the implosion" that has been portrayed.

Indeed, the Frenchman believes his side will come back older, wiser and better next season. His main aim will be to exploit the advances of this campaign to the maximum.

“I think the big core of the team is ready to come back and fight," said the manager. "I think all of them are determined to come back and win.

“I feel they have created something special and not to take advantage of that would be criminal for me.

"At the moment the vibes coming out of the club is like we are going to implode but it is not like that at all.

We need to bring in or at least bring up some quality English players (from the youth academy), that would help with players running off to Madrid, Milan etc. English players rather stay home.

Woi Woi BIG UP ARSEANL FANS, good performance for the season, bit unlucky with the UEFA liverpool game ( I still vex), but small ting.. It always have nex season.

Lots of rumours out there but it seems like Ben Arfa and Yaya Toure are closest to being signed.

Before the Sunderland game, Wenger said that everything will be sorted in the next "two to three weeks" ... which coincides with the French Cup final involving Lyon.

Ben Arfa has confirmed Arsenal talks, and Lyon is having a look at Nasri as a replacement ... so all signs lead to a possible done deal involving Hatem Ben Arfa.

I'm hoping that they could do some sort of swap ... Eboue + 5 Mil for Yaya Toure?

Hleb is obviously unhappy in London (they say his wife hates London), it's confirmed that he won't buy out his contract using the Webster clause, and i'm sure we could get about 15 Mil for him .... Arsenal paid 12 M for Hleb 3 years ago and he has improved since then. Look Spurs spent 16 M on Luka Modric a few weeks ago.

Arsenal is also being linked with a Manchester City deal ... possibly either Micah Richards, Dunne, or Johnson.

My picks:

Ben Arfa
Yaya Toure
Richards / Dunne
Diego (please)

They say Rosicky has finally solved his problems, and Vela is coming in.
There is also a little talk of Giovanni Dos Santos, especially being good friends with Carlos Vela. But would Barca ship him out? He's young and promising and should be part of the rebuilding.

Post by: MarylandTrini on May 14, 2008, 01:10:45 PM
Another player linked is Niko Kranjcar, if Hleb leaves

A note about Yaya Toure .. Arsenal had him on a trial in 2002, but he couldn't secure a work permit ... people seem to think that Le Arse let him go, but thats not the case.

Diego is Brazilian ... plays for Werder Bremen I believe ... CM ... with someone like Diego, Cesc won't have to play 50 games a season. .... he was running on empty after February.

David Villa would be great, but I don't see it happening ... Wenger thinks we are fine in that department. For some reason, he thinks that RVP will be fit, Bendtner will be ready, Ade will be consistent, and Eduardo will be mentally strong. Eduardo will most likely be out till January, and even then he might freak out when a tackle comes his way.

Someone who was at the Cesc Fabregas show said that he was misquoted Re:Villa

Someone asked him “What player from the Spanish team would you like at Arsenal?”
Then the crowd started shouting “Villa”
So Cesc said “yeah ok David Villa"

Bring in young Gibbs & groom him ( I have a feeling he will end up better than Walcott)

Yeah that real cold boy. And who going to buy him now anyway?
Hoyte and Eduardo I agree with, but Bender is only 20, he good for a squad player ... carling cup, fa cup, etc.... give him time to develop.
He was just thrown into it because RVP and Eduardo was injured.

Apart from Gibbs, the young guns looking real promising ... Gibbs, Merida, Barazite, Lansbury, Nordtveit, Jay Simpson, Gilbert, Randall, and of course Jack Wilshere

Guilty! Its a bit harsh, especially since he received the horrific injury and did not get a chance to prove himself. I said sell him because quite frankly I do not believe you will get 15 goals consistently form Eduardo in the Premier. Arsenal had consistent goal contributers in the past. Pires, Lundberg, Wiltord etc. All 3 could play wide and score from those positions. Wide play use to be the strength of Arsenal attack. As I have said all season Arsenal did not have enough depth, nor the variety in the goal scoring dept.

very simply, there just aren't that many fans of ALL the other teams, there are a select group of teams supported by many ppl over the world, this is a forum for soca warrior fans and followers, by extension many warriors are fans of a particular side(s) so its only natural to have a thread showing support of your side, great sides with shit supports usually end up flaming on other teams threads because they lack the actual class their side has.

so carry on antagonizing arsenal fans on this thread you only serve to make it longer and to stay in the first page and at the top of the list so cheers mate thanks for your support

Post by: GunnerStunner on May 21, 2008, 10:44:10 AM
Arsenal are closing in on a triple French swoop with Samir Nasri, Clement Chantome and Francis Coquelin all understood to be on the verge of moving to north London.

The biggest of the three deals is that for Nasri, who only recently signed a new long-term contract with Marseille.

But l'OM have agreed to let him leave as they hope to sign Hatem Ben Arfa from Lyon to replace him.

Arsenal, who also have an interest in Ben Arfa, have agreed a deal for Nasri believed to be worth 15million euros (£11.9million).

Nasri is expected in the English capital on Wednesday for a medical before signing a four-year deal.

Ben Arfa's move looks closer after Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas confirmed he could leave and admitted he would rather he joined l'OM than a foreign club.

"I am not opposed to a Hatem's transfer to l'OM. My idea is very clear: with the same offers, I will prefer my player to join a French club than a foreign club.

"French Football has to get more and more competitive teams for both Le Championnat and European Cups."

Aulas then admitted Arsenal are one of two Premier League clubs to make contact with him about Ben Arfa.

"But I have not been contacted by OM officials yet," he said.

"There is also interest from two English clubs, notably Arsenal."

While Wenger is a fan of both Nasri and Ben Arfa, the former has always been his preference and it seems he is now close to capturing him.

Nasri's signing is likely to be followed by the arrivals of Chantome and Coquelin.

Chantome was one of the few PSG players to come out of last season with any plaudits after a string of impressive displays in central midfield.

The 22-year-old has been likened to Mathieu Flamini and Wenger is reported to have met with the France Under-21 international in the last week.

Coquelin - who is with third division Laval, has been on trial with Arsenal and although he picked up an injury during training - the 17-year-old seems to have done enough to earn a deal.

It is believed Coquelin is currently in London undergoing a medical ahead of a deal.

Arsenal are closing in on a triple French swoop with Samir Nasri, Clement Chantome and Francis Coquelin all understood to be on the verge of moving to north London.

The biggest of the three deals is that for Nasri, who only recently signed a new long-term contract with Marseille.

But l'OM have agreed to let him leave as they hope to sign Hatem Ben Arfa from Lyon to replace him.

Arsenal, who also have an interest in Ben Arfa, have agreed a deal for Nasri believed to be worth 15million euros (£11.9million).

Nasri is expected in the English capital on Wednesday for a medical before signing a four-year deal.

Ben Arfa's move looks closer after Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas confirmed he could leave and admitted he would rather he joined l'OM than a foreign club.

"I am not opposed to a Hatem's transfer to l'OM. My idea is very clear: with the same offers, I will prefer my player to join a French club than a foreign club.

Nasri has Algerian roots and is being touted as "The next Zidane" .. hopefully without the violence.

He's more of a central Cesc-like player, but Wenger would play him out wide cause our 'wingers' cut inside anyway. He is Hleb with an end product.

We've all heard alot on Ben Arfa already .... for some reason I think OM will only sell Nasri if they could bring in Ben Arfa. Arsenal fans want both.

Aparantly Robinho's agent is in London. Real Madrid want Hleb. .... I know its crazy but i'm dreaming that they do a deal .. Robinho for Hleb + a little extra ?

BREAKING NEWS: WENGER SCRATCHES HIS BALLS
By Jim van Wijk, PA Sport

PA Sport understands that in a desperate attempt to alleviate his irritation, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger scratched his testicles.

This groundbreaking news is sure to shatter the footballing world; or at the very least intrigue the self engorged, idle, devoid of substance individuals that masquerade as Arsenal fans.

Players look on in disbelief as the normally calm Arsenal boss exhibited a moment of weakness in the face of unbearable frustration.

It is understood that the issue is to be discussed at board level, and that Arsenal shares have fallen 8% on the stock exchange.

Alexander Hleb and Emmanuel Adebayor, clearly disgusted by the actions of their coach are said to be considering their futures.

Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor agrees move to AC Milan.

Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor has agreed a deal to join AC Milan, according to reports in Italy.

Adebayor has met with Milan officials over the past few days and has shaken hands on a move to the Italian club, but Arsenal's potential asking price could rule out a transfer.

Gazzetta dello Sport say a reported fee of around £32 million for Adebayor could prove a stumbling block for AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi.

This is just another one of those rumors, but 40 Mil Euros for Ade is something Arsenal should not refuse, considering that someone like David Villa is for sale at 17 Mil.

Don't be too concerned about Hleb leaving, we might see Yaya going the other way to join up with Kolo, and we've already agreed a deal with a Hleb replacement - Nasri

If Ade stays, all Le Arse needs is Yaya, Nasri, and Zapata

Hill-Wood talks tough on contracts

http://msn.foxsports.com/soccer/story/8213076/Hill-Wood-talks-tough-on-contracts

Greedy football players risk plunging the game into "anarchy", according to Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood.

The Gunners supremo has backed his club's continued hard-line stance over wages amid the usual summer maelstrom of pay demands and transfer requests.

Full-back Bacary Sagna has signed an improved deal just a year after arriving at Emirates Stadium, with star midfielder Cesc Fabregas set to follow, while Emmanuel Adebayor has also been the subject of recent reports claiming he is after improved terms.

Former midfielder Mathieu Flamini meanwhile quit the club for AC Milan last month, with wages reputedly a major factor in his exit.

Hill-Wood told the Daily Star: "Nowadays, a lot of people sign four-year contracts and you heave a sigh of relief. Six months later they come marching in saying they want double the wages.

"The only answer is to tell them they are on that contract and that's it. Unless you do that, the game will become chaotic and descend into anarchy.

"I think there are very few people who have really got the tradition of the club at heart. You can name them on one hand. Actually, I can't name them on one hand and that's a great pity."

Milan coy over Adebayor swoop talk

http://msn.foxsports.com/soccer/story/8216758/Milan-coy-over-Adebayor-swoop-talk

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has refused to rule out the possibility of landing Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

The Rossoneri vice-president is in buoyant mood after sealing summer deals for the likes of Gianluca Zambrotta and Mathieu Flamini.
Milan also want a big-name striker this summer, and having seemingly cooled their interest in Ronaldinho, Didier Drogba and Adebayor have emerged as their top-targets.

Drogba is also set to be a target for Internazionale with Jose Mourinho now installed at their helm, so Adebayor could very well be the option Galliani opts for.

Coach Carlo Ancelotti has already admitted he would take Adebayor or Drogba, with a return for Andrei Shevchenko also a possibility.

On Adebayor, Galliani told Gazzetta dello Sport: "There is a rule that states that you can't make a private agreement with a player who is under contract with another club.

"I don't know whether a new striker will arrive from England - we will see."

Adebayor, speaking in his homeland of Togo, also admitted he was quite open about what motivates him.

"If you move, it is about money. When we were young we played because we love the game and we were passionate about it. But now, when you reach this stage you are thinking about the Champions League and big things like that," he told the Daily Telegraph.

"Whenever I come back to my country people love me. If I didn't go to Europe for money, what else would it be for?"

"If you gave me the option of playing beautiful football and winning nothing, or playing ugly and winning then obviously it would be the latter. You are judged on what you win.

"We play in a great team with a great manager, but we don't want to play beautiful football just to put smiles on the faces of the fans."


Reports in Italy suggest Galliani will lead a delegation to England on Tuesday when he will look to push ahead with a deal for one of their targets.

Arsenal look set to beat Manchester United to another transfer target with the Gunners favourites to land Blackburn striker Roque Santa Cruz. (Daily Mirror)

Arsenal striker Eduardo could be involved in pre-season training after making good progress in his recovery from a career-threatening injury.
The 25-year-old suffered a fractured left fibula and an open dislocation of his left ankle after a tackle by Birmingham's Martin Taylor in February.
Arsenal physiotherapist Gary Lewin said: "Hopefully, he will be back doing training during pre-season.

"We're setting no timescales. We don't want to put him under any pressure."

Lewin, who is to leave the Gunners to take up a role as head of physiotherapy with the England senior team next month, added: "We are confident Eduardo will make a full recovery."
The Croatia forward had been expected to be out of the game for nine months, but the former Dynamo Zagreb player has been doing extensive rehabilitation work in his native Brazil.

Meanwhile, midfielder Tomas Rosicky, who, like Eduardo, has been forced to miss Euro 2008 through injury, is making a good recovery after undergoing knee surgery. Lewin told the club's official website: "Tomas has had surgery on his knee and we expect him to be flying by pre-season.

"We have had some real nasty injuries and I think that is part and parcel of the game.

"Look back at the years, we have been successful and we have had luck with injuries and not picked up many nasty injuries. Hopefully that will be the case next season

Is Leaving Arsenal A Good Idea?
Arsenal’s apparent vulnerability leaves the Gunners trying to fend off suitors for their best players most summers. But what makes the North London club an easy target – and is it always a good career move to quit Arsene Wenger’s team? Graham Lister considers the evidence…

As the tasteless sauce of Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor's future continues to simmer above the flame of Italian and Spanish press speculation, it's time to consider a couple of questions.

Firstly, with Alexander Hleb also being courted, why do Spanish and Italian clubs seem to regard Arsenal as a vulnerable target whose cherries are always ripe for the picking?

Secondly, is the grass really that much greener beyond the Emirates?

Vulnerable Arsenal

So far, most of the mileage in the Adebayor story has been clocked up by the would-be buying clubs and the Spanish and Italian media who convey their messages. Their agenda seems to be a tried and tested one: unsettle the targets with a steady drip-feed of declarations of intent to buy them.   

You can argue that it doesn't matter how many times Barcelona or Milan say they want Adebayor or Hleb, or how earnestly they say it, because unless Arsenal decide to sell there can be no transfer. But if the players' heads are turned by all the speculation, and they become unsettled, then Arsenal are left with dissatisfied and unfocused players who may as well be offloaded/cashed-in if their hearts are no longer in it at the Emirates, irrespective of what contracts they may have signed.

Adebayor, in those quotes that have been reliably attributed to the Togolese striker, has rubbished claims that he is demanding (or begging for?) a move, and insisted he wants to stay with manager Arsene Wenger's Arsenal, talking enthusiastically about the Gunners' prospects for next season and what is needed to go the extra mile to lift a trophy or two.

Hleb has been more equivocal about his future, but Wenger himself has made it clear enough to anyone in Milan or Barcelona prepared to listen that he does not want or intend to sell Adebayor.

However, in the real world we all know that doesn't mean the player(s) won't leave this summer. Things can change with sudden and dramatic rapidity in the transfer market, and there is surely too much smoke in the latest reports for there to be no fire at the heart of the speculation. At the time of writing, and with his latest attributable quotes, the odds appear to favour an Ade adieu.

That raises the more interesting question of why Arsenal seem to be particularly vulnerable to the unsettling transfer market tactics of the top clubs on the continent. Each summer, with monotonous regularity, the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Milan, Inter and Juventus gather round the Arsenal squad like vultures anticipating a kill. Arsenal fans endured two or three consecutive summers of Real Madrid publicly courting Patrick Vieira. Then Barcelona made it clear they were determined to prise Thierry Henry away from North London.  Now the targets for the top Spanish and Italian clubs have shifted to the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Hleb, Adebayor and even (until he put an end to it by immediately signing a new long-term contract) Gael Clichy.

The clear implication is that the big continental clubs consider themselves a bigger and more attractive proposition than the Gunners.  That must infuriate many Arsenal fans, frustrate Arsene Wenger and be uncomfortable for the board at the Emirates.

Not Big Enough?

Arsenal are undoubtedly one of England's biggest clubs. Only Liverpool and Manchester United have been more successful in terms of honours won. But unlike those two North-West clubs, the Gunners have a relatively undistinguished European record and significantly have never lifted the European Cup/Champions League - by common consent the currency in which the reputations of the biggest clubs are now traded.

They may have been a tad unlucky to lose their first final in Europe's premier competition, against Barcelona in 2006, but the fact is that lose it they did. Although the Gunners are able to guarantee Champions League involvement to top players - they've qualified for eleven consecutive seasons - there may be a feeling that you won't get a coveted winners' medal in North London. That is where the likes of Real Madrid, Milan and Barcelona have a clear advantage over Arsenal..

And the fact that, despite playing such exhilarating football under Wenger, the Gunners haven't actually put a new trophy on the sideboard since 2005 also counts against them, though they have the potential to remedy that soon, and indeed came close to doing so last season.

There is an irony at the heart of top-flight European football. It's a team game, but while modern players are happy enough to win as a team, when that team - of which they are a part - fails to deliver silverware, some individuals distance themselves from the collective shortfall and talk of the need to move on to fulfil their ambitions. As long as Arsenal's campaigns have no silver linings, they are vulnerable to the Mathieu Flaminis and Hlebs using such arguments against them.

Not that success is a guarantee of stability or satisfied stars. The current Cristiano Ronaldo saga is a case in point. He has won two consecutive Premier League titles and the Champions League with Manchester United, and swept the board for the last two seasons as far as English football's individual awards are concerned. There is now a view among his apologists that he's been there and done that and wants a new challenge. Apparently Ronaldo wants to be hailed as the Fifa World Player of the Year, and sees a 'dream' move to Real Madrid as the only way of achieving that ambition because no England-based player has won that accolade.

So Arsenal can't assume that winning things will keep the predator clubs from their door. And of course they are seen as predators themselves when Wenger and his scouts continue to unearth raw, unknown talent and polish it into the sort of gems for which Europe's elite are eager to bid big money. 
 
Money, Money

Which brings us to the issue of money. Perhaps it is in this regard that Arsenal are perceived to be most vulnerable. They are a relatively conservative club, though not one afraid to embrace change, as the bold decision to depart Highbury and build a new stadium 500 yards away at Ashburton Grove amply demonstrated.  The Gunners are fiscally prudent, and the financing of the Emirates Stadium project involved incurring debt; but they have structured things in a typically prudent way, so although they are not the richest of the Premier League's Big Four, they are the most financially sound at the moment, following the foreign takeovers at the other three and the debts that those clubs are saddled with as a result.

This, though - together with Wenger's disinclination for splashing out on big-name stars, and the club's much discussed but ill-understood salary structure - has created the widespread perception that Arsenal are tight-fisted. It is a perception that works against them in a competitive market place, not only with some of the players they try to sign, but also among the players already on their books.

In the Premier League, only Chelsea (£132.8million) and Manchester United (£92.3million) spent more than Arsenal's £89.7million on wages in 2006-07, the last season for which analysts Deloitte's figures are available, so the club are not exactly cheapskates. Making European comparisons, Deloite recently revealed that the French, Italian and Spanish leagues spent about the same proportion of turnover on wages (63 per cent in 2006-07) as their counterparts in the English Premier League. The notable exception was Germany, where only 45 per cent of income went on salaries.

Yet these figures don't paint the full picture of how Arsenal compare vis-a-vis their domestic and especially continental rivals in terms of paying the top performers. The Gunners may well be right up there based on the size of their overall wage bill, but of keenest interest to individual players is how that wage bill is distributed. The charge often levelled at Arsenal is that they don't pay their top players 'enough.'  This argument received plenty of airing when the tapped-up Ashley Cole was feeling hard-done by about Arsenal's 'insulting' offer of £55,000 a week a couple of seasons ago. It was headlines again when Flamini decided to weigh anchor and sail off to Milan. And no doubt it is the underlying plot in the current story that is likely to see Adebayor and/or Hleb end up in Barcelona (or Milan).

Few people, outside the club and the players themselves, know exactly what the wage structure is at Arsenal and how much better or worse it is than those at rival clubs. But the perception is that the Gunners try to keep the differential between the lowest and highest earners in the squad as narrow as possible for the sake of team spirit and, crucially, economic viability. It seems to mean some players will periodically get disgruntled with their lot and start entertaining notions of how much better off they could be elsewhere, giving encouragement to rival clubs to start whispering in their ears - or getting the media to do so with a loud hailer.

The Sunny Side Of The Street?

Footballers like to tell us that it's not about the money but the glory. The reality is it's about both. But although cash can be a powerful motivator, most top flight players are extremely wealthy these days whatever club they are at, so at the end of the proverbial career, it's probably the medals that count – or more accurately, counting the medals.

So leaving aside the unknown factor of how much richer anyone got by leaving Arsenal, what can be said about how much more successful those who left the club became?

You can divide the players who've left Arsenal during Wenger's reign into distinct groups:
- Those who retired as Gunners (eg, Dennis Bergkamp, Tony Adams, Lee Dixon)
- Those who moved on towards the end of their careers with their best years behind them (Steve Bould, Ian Wright, Ray Parlour, Paul Merson, Martin Keown, Lauren, Nigel Winterburn, Robert Pires, David Seaman, Davor Suker, Kanu, Oleg Luzhny, Jens Lehmann, Freddie Ljungberg, Sylvain Wiltord, Sol Campbell...)
- Those who moved because they could not get into the Arsenal first team on a consistent basis, and found (or struggled to find) their level elsewhere (David Bentley, Jermaine Pennant, Matthew Upson, Lassana Diarra, Fabrice Muamba, Moritz Volz, Luis Boa Morte, Francis Jeffers, Pascal Cygan, Richard Wright, Stuart Taylor, Sebastian Larsson, Jeremie Aliadiere - plus a host of youngsters who never made the Arsenal first team or played just once or twice in the Carling Cup, such as Steve Sidwell, Graham Stack, John Halls, Anthony Stokes, etc).
- Then there is the most interesting group - those who when they left the club were thought to be moving onwards and upwards. This group includes Emmanuel Petit, Marc Overmars, Nicolas Anelka, Patrick Vieira, Thierry Henry, Edu, Giovanni van Bronckhorst, Jose Antonio Reyes, Ashley Cole, Mathieu Flamini and possibly soon, Emmanuel Adebayor and Alexander Hleb.

What A Difference A Move Made

From the above list, how many can be said to have gone on to bigger and better things post-Arsenal?  You could make a case that Sol Campbell and Kanu are enjoying an Indian Summer at Portsmouth, but another FA Cup win and a Uefa Cup campaign hardly eclipse what they achieved at Highbury.

Vieira has won the Scudetto in each of his three seasons in Italy's Serie A, though the first two of those, with Juventus and then Inter, were somewhat devalued by the Calciopoli scandal, through no fault of Vieira's, and anyway he'd already won three domestic titles with the Gunners, and has not been the driving force in Italy that he was in Wenger's team.

Petit flopped badly at Barca; Overmars fared better but not spectacularly so, and could not inspire the Catalans to any trophy success after they'd paid the Gunners £25million for him.

Bentley has flourished at Ewood Park, but with respect, Blackburn are not Arsenal, and he is now angling to leave Rovers because he craves Champions League football.       

Cole at Chelsea is not the player he was at Arsenal, and the gap he left was immediately and convincingly filled by Gael Clichy.  Pires has sparkled for Villarreal since overcoming another knee ligament injury, confirming that Wenger should have offered him the two-year deal he wanted in summer 2006; but that has to be tempered by the fact that Pires will be 35 in October, and Wenger is always looking to youth and the future.

Anelka? Yes, he won the Champions League with Real Madrid in 2000 (but only after falling out with then-coach Vicente del Bosque and being suspended by the club for 45 days for refusing to train) and a Turkish title with Fenerbahce; but looking at his overall success with seven clubs in nine seasons since leaving Arsenal, it is debatable whether he would have been better off staying longer under Wenger's guidance.

The Options

It remains to be seen whether Flamini will excel at Milan, though he goes to the San Siro with the momentum of an outstanding last season at Arsenal behind him.     

And what of Hleb and Adebayor, if they leave?  Hleb's footwork and creativity in the Gunners' midfield, alongside his pals Flamini and Fabregas, was often excellent, although his goals return remained a big disappointment. Pires, whom he essentially replaced, would average 14 goals a season from the left wing; Hleb's average is four.  If he moves to Barcelona, say, how will he be used? In a way that suits him best - or like Henry was last season, which certainly didn't play to the French striker’s strengths?

As for Adebayor, among many Arsenal fans there is a view that although he improved dramatically last season and scored an impressive 30 goals, including some real crackers, the 60 he missed were almost as significant. The point seems to be that Adebayor is far from the finished article and that if Milan or Barca are prepared to spend £22-25 million to buy him, Arsenal should take their money - especially if the player wants to leave.  Adebayor has more improving to do (20 per cent more, according to Wenger), so will he do that at Camp Nou or San Siro where the burden of expectation on him will be immense as the new big money striker?

Making your name in a particular team - in this case Arsenal - is the thing that attracts interest from so-called bigger clubs. But once the player is out of that environment, and away from the mentoring of a trusted coach (Wenger), there are no guarantees that development will continue at the same rate, or that the goods will be delivered in similar style or volume.  Along with the  money, that is a consideration the 'restless' players need to take on board as they ponder the pros and cons of leaving the Emirates.

If both players eventually insist they want to leave, Arsenal's options are to dig their heels in and keep them to their contracts; offer them big pay increases to keep them happy; or sell them for the best prices they can realise. The first option is not really viable, as keeping disillusioned players at a club can infect morale within the whole squad.

Nor is the second option sensible, because it is financially unsustainable in the long term, and could disaffect other players who will demand similar treatment.

So if push comes to shove, selling them on may be the best bet for Arsenal.

The grass may not always be greener, but players sometimes have to learn that the hard way. Nor is any player indispensable. Arsene Wenger's team look close to achieving honours, and given the Frenchman's record for finding and bringing the best out of talent, that scenario is not likely to change even if Adebayor and Hleb go this summer - especially if their sale generates funds to help bring in high calibre new recruits. The pertinent question may not be what will happen to Arsenal if they go, but what will happen to the players if they do?

Title: Re: ARSENAL FOREVER
Post by: GunnerStunner on July 03, 2008, 05:39:50 AM
It all began with a Frenchman. The speculation over Mathieu Flamini's future dragged raggedly on the road into the marginally warmer months before, on 5th May, the seemingly inevitable happened and Arsenal lost last season's surprise package to Milan. It was a bitter pill to swallow for Wenger ahead of what would turn out to be a challenging summer at Emirates Stadium.


Just over a fortnight later, it was confirmed that supporters will finally see Mexico international Carlos Vela in the red and white of Arsenal after the 19-year-old was granted clearance to play for the club in the 2008/09 season following three separate loan spells in Spain.


Then came a second exit, but this time it was of the expected variety. Veteran goalkeeper Jens Lehmann penned a deal with Bundesliga side Stuttgart; a move which in turn saw last season's first-choice Manuel Almunia secure the No.1 jersey again ahead of the forthcoming campaign.


May and June were largely filled with the aftermath of ice-cream enthusiast Alexander Hleb's meeting with Internazionale officials, as a number of other clubs came out of the woodwork expressing their appetite to secure the signature of the Belarus international.


The routine courting from Spain of Cesc Fabregas came and went, before Wenger continued with his policy of snapping up promising youth via the coup of Cardiff City midfielder Aaron Ramsey, 17, who snubbed offers from Manchester United and Everton.


Then came a tale of two U-turns, the first involving Samir Nasri. Among a disorientating maze of names, it was Nasri's link to North London that seemed to hold genuine threads of truth. Cue 23rd June when the Marseille playmaker's official website made a boo-boo, prematurely announcing that his switch to The Gunners had been rubber-stamped. The statement was swiftly retracted.


Emmanuel Adebayor was next to perform his very own 180. On 27th June, the African striker addressed the world's press, in that unmistakably zealous discourse, confirming his intention to see out the remaining three years of his contract. Relief for Gunners fan, albeit short-lived relief. For just an hour later there he was having a chinwag with Sky Sports News reporter Bryan Swanson, explaining that he will have sit-down-talks with the club in the coming days. Tut-tut.



What they need


Stability and loyalty. With the summer's headlines dominated by want-away players, who are finding life a struggle on £50,000-a-week, Wenger needs to strain his squad of the players he deems uncommitted to the task in hand, and in turn put right three seasons of pretty football but empty-handed nothingness with the reported £20million he has at his disposal.


A towering, no-nonsense centre-back would prove fruitful as it seems that Kolo Toure and William Gallas struggle when partnered together. Philippe Senderos' mixed bag of a career means a fresh recruit would work wonders in patching up Arsenal's weariness when dealing with the long ball.


Wide-men. With Hleb all-but vacated the bustle of North London, and Tomas Rosicky the epitome of fragility, the weight falls on the young shoulders of improving Theo Walcott and Emmanuel Eboue (a player that I feel offers less than little).


If Gilberto leaves then fresh guts in centre-midfield are required with the latest name to be thrown into the hat Werder Bremen's Amaury Bischoff. The French-born 21-year-old would be a typical signing from Wenger; a player very few would have even heard of, but a player fans will be hoping can have the same impact as the likes of last summer's unexpected additions Bacary Sagna and Eduardo.



What they'll get


Much hinges on whether Wenger deems it essential to replace Mathieu Flamini - who dovetailed with maestro Cesc Fabregas last term - with a fresh recruit, potentially Bischoff, or a promotion from within. Next season may see the Frenchman utilise the leggy Abou Diaby in his preferred central role.


In the early flutterings of the transfer chat, Wenger had hinted he would strengthen defensively, but he has since commented that this is an area he is content with. Wenger is a shrewd manipulator of the market, though, and it would be foolish to completely rule out an acquisition in this department.


The capture of Nasri seems a matter of when rather than if, so it is a case of distinguishing fact from fiction among the remaining smoke and mirrors in a bid to predict what else might occur. As mentioned, Wenger is an unpredictable fellow, and so often he springs a surprise that initially bewilders you but then grows on you in time.


Adebayor's situation is a peculiar one, with the player to-ing and fro-ing by the hour. The interested parties, Barcelona and Milan, are expected to have to pay a fee in the region of £30million for his services. Expect a replacement if the striker is shown the door.

finaly, the truth is easier to handle

Manager Arsene Wenger has admitted that Arsenal intend to continue selling their prized assets for the next 17 years.

The Gunners sold Thierry Henry to Barcelona for over £16million last summer and re-invested £7.5m of that money on Croatia striker Eduardo.

This summer, Emmanuel Adebayor and Alexander Hleb have been linked with big-money moves away from the Emirates Stadium.

And Wenger has revealed Arsenal must continue to make a profit in the transfer market in order to cover the costs of their new stadium.
Strategy

"The strategy of the club is to sell every year and to buy less expensive players," he told the News of the World.

"We manage at Arsenal to maintain all our football ambitions - national and European - while having to free up - for 17 more years - an annual surplus of £24m to pay for our stadium.

"The club's strategy is to favour the policy of youngsters ahead of stars and to count on the collective quality of our game."

Adebayor signed a new long-term deal with Arsenal last summer but is looking for a significant wage increase to stay at the club.

Mercenaries

Barcelona have already bid £24m for the Togo international, who cost the Gunners in the region of £3m from Monaco in January 2006, while Milan are also interested in the 24-year-old striker.

Wenger also voiced his frustration at the current state of the transfer system, which he feels encourages in-form players to seek more lucrative deals elsewhere rather than honour their existing contract.

"If I had the power to change anything basic in football, it would be the transfer system which makes mercenaries of players," he added.

"If they are bad ones, they stay and, if they are good, they think only of leaving.

"I have fought for them to earn a very good living, but I impose respect for their contract upon them."

Talks one real cold in truth, between Hleb and Fabregas.

Hleb hits out at Wenger and Fábregas'My view of how I should be playing didn't coincide with the manager's'Paolo Bandini and agencies
guardian.co.uk, Tuesday July 8, 2008
Article history
 
Hleb accused Fábregas of being 'selfish' in front of goal.

Alexander Hleb has stepped up his efforts to engineer a move away from Arsenal, criticising both manager Arsène Wenger and team-mate Cesc Fábregas before confirming that he hopes to play at Barcelona next season.

"My view of how I should be playing didn't coincide with the manager's," said Hleb, before revealing that he first asked Wenger for permission to leave last summer. "I think he was quite upset about it. But ask him. It may turn out he's happy to see me go."

Hleb was originally linked with a move to Internazionale after allegedly meeting the club's officials before Arsenal's Champions League win over Milan at the San Siro. Milan were then reported to have expressed an interest in the player, but Hleb today insisted his heart is set on a move to the Camp Nou.

"I don't know where I'll be next season but I'd prefer Barcelona," he said. "It is being negotiated and, hopefully, will be decided soon."

Although he has become one of the club's most important players over the past two years, Hleb has continued to frustrate many Arsenal fans with his apparent reluctance to shoot. His suggestion, therefore, that Fábregas is "selfish" in front of goal will be met with a degree of amusement within the club.

"When we get scoring opportunities, Fábregas is much more selfish than me," he said. "Given a chance to shoot, he always goes for it - unlike me," the midfielder told The Sun.

BBC news

Arsenal will train Indian boys 
By Zubair Ahmed
BBC News, Mumbai 


 
British clubs are eager to exploit the Indian market
One of England's leading football clubs, Arsenal, says it will train 16 of India's talented school boys at its training facilities in London.

The boys, aged between 10 and 15, were selected after a two-week coaching programme held recently in Calcutta by Arsenal staff.

The boys are flying out to begin their training at the club's stadium, The Emirates, from next month.

Leading European football clubs are increasingly targeting India.

Clubs like Arsenal - which is tied up with an Indian sponsor - see a huge market potential there.

Most of the boys going to Arsenal cannot afford to buy their own kit.

Their heroes are not Indian cricketers, such as Saurav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar, but Arsenal stars like Cesc Fabregas and Emmanuel Adebayor.

Selected from across the country, the boys will be put through a development programme, called "The Arsenal Way".

 
Arsenal manager Arsne Wegner has a reputation for finding foreign talent

The club's Indian partners, Tata Tea, owners of Tetley Tea, say the objective is to give the children access to world-class training facilities.

Arsenal say it is an opportunity to propagate the game in India.

But in this cricket-crazy country, football has long been neglected.

Even though some Calcutta-based clubs have a tradition and history to match old clubs from around the world, footballers here are never accorded the status cricketers enjoy.

The national football team's poor record does not help the matter.

But things are changing. Young boys and girls wearing replica shirts of European clubs are becoming more of a common sight.

When the German league side, Bayern Munich, played in Calcutta recently, more than 100,000 people turned up to watch them.

English clubs such as Manchester United and Chelsea realise that India's billion-plus population and growing economy could provide a huge TV audience.

However India's national coach, Englishman Bob Houghton, has often said that European clubs are more interested in promoting their commercial interests than helping the game in India.

right i hope manu can win games with out CR for the first two months of the season

plus i feel alex kick him in he ankle to get surgery to keep real off him

anyway
looks like talks for ade to ac have opened up, here we go round the arsne bush


not a ManU fan by any stretch of the imagination.

But I know they could wipe the floor with Arsenal, with or without CR7.

(http://members.cox.net/oh51788/username.gif)


FA Cup this past season. A Nani, a Scot and a scouser!

and then what happened the game after that giggsy?? portsmouth??? you seem to have selective memory, and don't gimmie that alex rested played toots, cus he brought on rooney and CR
anywho i think it was an arsenal reserveist and retieree side down there in portsmouth, kanu, campbell, lauren and diarra hmmmm


oh yeah and didnt they go on to win the fa cup?? two africans, a french man and a suspect fasi, go figure

Gunner, the fact is United buss yuh beloved Arsenal's arse without most of the first team players whereas your team played about 9-10 first teamers. Rooney started and CR did not even sweat.

Ah takin in d game against my Juve right now...not exciting football but ah go take it for d pre-season.
First ting first I am Man Utd all the way, and Arsenal not winning anything more than Carling Cup with this youth philosiphy side.
I must say I prefer trophies over any other type of acclaim...but I am jealous a bit of all the young players Arsenal have coming through. Wouldn't mind if Utd had 1 or 2 of those. A few of these guys impress me such as Vela and Bendtner, but none more than Denilson...that fella look like trubble in a 2 years. These guys will provide good bench support for Arsenal...wonderful individual players who would fit in a smaller team well....imagine a youth like Denilson startin every week for a Bolton or somebody...as a team though...yuh eh winnin no league with tha intercol side. Look how Anderson look so compose as he was with all d experience men at Utd, but Wenger wouldnt self buy a lil 2-3 experience men cuz he fraid of d high transfer fees.
So I look forward to the Arsenal fans cry yet again 'we playin d best ball in europe' to which we reply 'what do u have to show for it'. bless

Dred, Bendtner is ah first grade shithound! United has young players, young players  who have actually won and done things unlike dem Arsenal yutes ; Rooney, Ronaldo, Anderson, Nani, Tevez to name a few, none of which are 25 yet. Johny Evans, the brazilian twins, and two or three other young players who they took on tour have looked great. When those arsenal young men and them get tired of loosing they will move on.

I went to d game today and based on what I saw I will co-sign your Bendtner assessment. No talent whatsoever.

Kind of agree with your summary of arsenal youth as well. Loads of talent (every1 except Bendtner could play d one touch brand) but no end product. Theo Walcott epitomises this - amazing pace, does leave men for dead, but you never get the feeling anything will come of it. Kind of like Ronaldo when he first came to England. Only Adebayor looks like he has an eye for goal (to be fair tho, he really does look like a world-class striker to me now, has improved incredibly since I last saw him play and I cud see why every1 is after him). Noone else is willing to take a shot.

I think they will be even better than last season though, and might even finish second (ahead of Chelsea), if they can develop a killer instict. Maybe when Van Persie is fully fit and back in d side they will be able to score more freely.

Jack Wilshire looks like a big player tho...never saw him b4 2day. Any1 know anything about him?

I eh no coach but I don't understand how Bendtner is used. For me with Arsenal penetration wide, Bendtner should get himself in the box and look to use his heading ability. Everytime he coming deep & pulling wide to get balls, which = ineffective. Get in the box and make life hard for defenders, batter dem soften dem up.

The problem is he has no ability. He is not world class at all.

Didnt watch the game 2day, but if he was on the field at the same time as Adebayor, he was probably being used in a slightly wider second striker role....kinda like a winger but with no pace or useful touches. Van Persie is far better in that role.

And Bendtner is a skinny fella, he can only make life difficult for defenders if he finds himself in space inside d box...once someone is marking him he will be de one gettin rough up.

Bendtner is 19, and has a better touch and more natural ability than Adebayor. I'm an Arsenal fan, but to be honest, Adebayor has the first touch of a rapist.
Plus he doesn't know the offside rule.

Jack Wilshere .. he is 16 and given Gilberto's number today .. first team squad.
He looked really really good in the reserves last season. I'd say better than Fabregas did when he started. Wilshere's been at Arsenal since he was 11 I think.

Vela and Nasri looking good in pre-season too .. not just the Emirates but their pre-season in Austria ... beat a side 10-2.

Yeah they're not selling... only if we get Given

Arsene is looking for one more player .. hearing Xabi Alonso's name thrown around. Liverpool still want Barry, but they want to sell Xabi to finance the deal. I say Arsenal should just offer up 12M + Hoyte for Barry ... O'Neil would rather sell to Arsenal just to piss off Liverpool.

Plenty names coming up though ... Barry, Xabi, De La Red, Veloso


Off topic ... anyone notice Real Madird just paid 13 Million for Van Der Vaart? And he had a clause in his contract that said he could leave next year for 1.5 M. That is good business by Hamburg.
So now .. Madrid ... Van Der Vaart, Sneijder, Robben, Drenthe, Van Nistelrooy.

Arsenal puts 16-year-old Wilshere on its first-team squad for upcoming season.

23 hours ago

LONDON — Arsenal has included 16-year-old midfielder Jack Wilshere in its first-team squad for the new season.

Wilshere did not make it into the squad last season but impressed in preseason, going close to scoring against Juventus on Saturday and causing Real Madrid fullback Michel Salgado problems Sunday.

Wilshere wore No. 55 against Madrid but has been given the No. 19 shirt formerly worn by Brazil midfielder Gilberto Silva, who left the club to join Panathinaikos last month.

Wilshere joined Arsenal at age nine in October 2001. He scored 13 times in 19 under-18 matches last season and scored twice from two starts with the reserve team.

which big guns, the only starters all yuh missing is toure and fabregas.

The side that play that pack of shit had regular starters of van persie, adebaybore, eboue, sagna, clichy, gallas, almunia, and you could even include Walcott in that mix, cuz he been in the first team squad for at least two full seasons now.

The only non regulars was Djourou, Ramsey and Denilson.

Arsenal need to stop claiming their side 'young' , cuz they ain't. They need to start buying world class players, cuz they gonna be found out  wanting in the next 38 weeks.

Ok, let's put in the ages of the remaining starters  that you left out;

Almunia-31
Sagna-25
Eboue-25
Van Persie-25
Adebaybore-24
(Toure soon to return from injury-27)

Every side have young players in their starting line up but don't go on about it as Arsene does; I could talk bout Anderson-20
Nani-21
Campbell-20 (who has been sweating and gonna get more sweat when the season start)
Rooney-22

It's easier to keep talking about the youth of your side, when it's due to your policy of not spending money on big players. Fair enough, they're paying back for a stadium, but it's a bit disingenuous to keep using one's own situation as a reason for failure to win silverware.

Almunia-31
Sagna-25
Eboue-25
Van Persie-25
Adebaybore-24
(Toure soon to return from injury-27)

Every side have young players in their starting line up but don't go on about it as Arsene does; I could talk bout Anderson-20
Nani-21
Campbell-20 (who has been sweating and gonna get more sweat when the season start)
Rooney-22

It's easier to keep talking about the youth of your side, when it's due to your policy of not spending money on big players. Fair enough, they're paying back for a stadium, but it's a bit disingenuous to keep using one's own situation as a reason for failure to win silverware.

You said "Arsenal need to stop claiming their side young, cuz they aint". I just showing you that 10 out of the traveling squad that went Holland was under 22. So you eh really make no sense. Saying that the other starters (besides Almunia and you forgot Gallas) are all 24/25 or that other teams have young players hardly makes a difference to the point I was making. Unless you saying that Arsenal's average age is normal.

But I think what you wanted to say is that Arsenal should not use the age of their team as an excuse for not winning. But the fact is the side is young and last season they lost a lot of key players at the same time and had to rely too heavily on inexperienced players. If you don't like that as a reason or don't think its true then COOL.

But we were top of the league and had a bad patch of form when Eduardo (in form striker at the time) joined Van Persie (leading striker) and Rosicky (our biggest goal threat out of midfield) on the injured list. Sagna (one of the strongest right backs in the league) also got injured late in the season. So any Arsenal fan would obviously cite those losses and the inexperience we had to rely on as a key factor for the team's downfall. Its pretty straight forward.

But as I said, if you don't like that as a reason or don't think its true then COOL. 

Lastly, I never hear Wenger or anyone from Arsenal saying that the team not going and win nothing this season cause it too young. All that coming from the media, football fans and rival coaches.

Arsenal accept Hoyte offer

Middlesbrough have confirmed that they have had a bid accepted for Arsenal full-back Justin Hoyte.

Boro chairman Steve Gibson revealed on Tuesday that the club had submitted an offer for the defender as manager Gareth Southgate seeks a replacement for right-back Luke Young, who recently signed for Aston Villa.

Hoyte, who enjoyed a loan spell at Sunderland in 2005/06, struggled for first-team football at the Gunners last season, making just two Premier League starts.

And Southgate's Boro are now set to open talks with the 23-year-old, although the proposed transfer faces a race against time to be completed before the club's campaign opener against Tottenham Hotspur.

Chief executive Keith Lamb told the club's official website: "We have agreed a fee with Arsenal and we have now been given permission to speak to Justin which we will be doing in the next 24-48 hours."

Should Hoyte fail to seal his planned switch to the Riverside Stadium before Saturday's game with Spurs then Rhys Williams is likely to start ahead of Tony McMahon in defence.

Hoyte eyes England honours
New Boro signing has international dream
Last updated: 18th August 2008

Justin Hoyte hopes his move to Middlesbrough can help his international ambitions.

The 23-year-old right-back finalised his £3million move from Arsenal over the weekend.

Now Hoyte, who spent a successful year on loan at Sunderland earlier in his career, is hopeful his return to the North East will push him into the England reckoning.

"Everyone wants to play for their country and if I perform well I want to move on to the England stage," he said.

"As soon as I knew that Middlesbrough were interested it was a case of coming down, having a look and talking to the manager.

"Everything I was told was what I wanted to hear.

"It was still very strange traveling to a Champions League qualifier and being on the bench for that game and the next day going to training and finding out I was coming to Boro.

"But it's an opportunity to get regular football after not playing as many games as I wanted to at Arsenal. It's a chance to go out and show I can play and hopefully play every week and keep my consistency."

Southgate happy
Meanwhile, manager Gareth Southgate insists he is more than happy with his squad and he has not upped his bid for Reading's James Harper.

Southgate and sources at Boro were quoted about Harper over the weekend, but he says he is happy with his players at the moment.

"We've got a small squad but we believe it's a good one, and I want to keep everybody involved this season," said Southgate.

"I was delighted with the attitude and the character we showed for the Spurs game and I want to have a look at a couple of games before making a final decision.

"I'm pleased to have added Justin Hoyte to the squad, but we have no more bids in at the moment and it may stay that way.

"It may leave us a little bit short, but then we have players who have proved they can play in a number of positions. Villa only had a small squad last season and they finished above us in the table.

"I like the idea of everybody having a chance of playing. On the other hand I do not want to leave us exposed, so it's a situation that needs a lot of thought."

Arsenal sign Silvestre from Man Utd.

http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story?id=564710&sec=england&cc=3888
Title: So arsenal decide they go take we scrape ups?
Post by: SHOTTA on August 21, 2008, 06:29:17 AM
LONDON (AP) - Arsenal signed French defender Mikael Silvestre on a two-year deal from Premier League rival Manchester United on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old Silvestre left Old Trafford after nine years, rejecting a move to Manchester City in favor of the prospect of Champions League football in London.



Silvestre, who missed much of last season with knee ligament damage, is the first player United has sold to the Gunners since Brian Kidd in 1974.

"I've spent a large part of my career at United, the last nine years, and I'll remember that time fondly but feel I'm ready for a new challenge," said Silvestre, who won four league titles at Old Trafford. "Arsenal is known for playing technical and skillful football, and has a young but experienced squad.

"I'm really excited about this next stage of my career, hopefully playing my part in helping the club to new successes."

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger broke his usual policy of signing young, promising players.

"We have a strong squad but a young squad and Mikael's versatility, experience and caliber will provide the extra depth we need to reinforce our challenge for honors this season," Wenger said. "His defensive adaptability will serve us well and it's a big plus that Mikael has top-level experience and a great understanding of football in the Premier League."

Silvestre struggled to feature in Alex Ferguson's plans at United after fellow French defender Patrice Evra established himself on the left, and Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand forged a successful partnership in the center.

After joining from Inter Milan in 1999, Silvestre made 361 appearances, scoring 10 times and claiming 10 major titles.

"Mikael was a great servant and a wonderful professional," Ferguson said. "We wish him all the best at his new club and thank him for his service."

it was always going to be a tall order this season and now made worst by the amount of injuries.
No Fabragas, Rosiky, Diaby, Eduardo, means little depth to draw upon and also no tactical options.
Lets face it Eboue is a right back nothing else, Bendtner not ready (I eh sure he ever will be) and I have real doubts about Walcott as a wide player. If he was not English the media would have been ripping him apart. I would love to see him play upfront and partner Adebayor running behind defenders.
Once again Gallas was caught wanting in his defending, allowing his man to get infront of him to score,
That being said Van Persie and Adebayor missed good chances

GOOD NEWS ;D

'We were organised, disciplined and focused'
On the performance…

“It was a big game for us and I felt we were well organised, disciplined, focused and basically never really under threat from FC Twente. What was most important was not to make mistakes, be patient and score our goals.

“I felt the whole team was sharper and physically we were much better than on Saturday afternoon. Maybe that is why we made it easier. It was a game that gave us the same problem as in the first game, by man marking us all over the pitch. When they had the ball they didn't take many risks - they were more focused on possession. We had to be well organised because they played a little bit with our patience.

On the return of Cesc Fabregas…


“I believe he brings calm and confidence to the side and overall we had a good balance in the side. He could have stayed on. He was more disappointed Twente didn't really have a go at us; he likes to play. He wants always to play but I took him off because he has just come back from a hamstring and we play again on Saturday. Recovery time will be very short.”

On responding to the weekend defeat…


“The response was clear. It was togetherness, it was consistency and that is what you want on a night like that. We want to play with the best and to do that means qualifying for the Group Stage. There was so much at stake tonight that of course it was a big mental test.”

On going goal crazy…


“We have struggling a little bit for goals but I was never really worried about that because we can create chances. It is difficult when you start the season with a qualifier and in-between you have an international friendly. At that moment the bodies aren't completely ready to absorb all that and you can have a dip a little bit. I felt that on Saturday.”

On Nasri's substitution…


“He had a stomach bug during the game and was sick at half-time. He couldn't go on.”

On central midfield…


“I think Denilson had a good game tonight. We have as well Aaron Ramsey - for me he will be a very good player - and we have Alex Song and we have Abou Diaby. Even Nasri can play central but we have to see.”

On Walcott's performance…


“I feel you have to be patient with Theo, I always say that. He can be decisive in any game against anybody if the team has a good collective display and if you can get him involved. He has improved his first touch, his link play, and that was a vital stage for him. Then without losing his one against one ability, he has worked on his control on the move and looks now to have found the balance between individual play and team play. He is a good finisher. What he did today is really the brand of a good finisher and you cannot teach that. He has that naturally.

On Vela's globetrotting...


“We don't see Vela a lot because he goes to Mexico last week and then goes again next week to Jamaica to play two games. Then he will come back a bit late for the game we play away. But I am confident he will play an important part in the season, but at the moment he is away. He is a top class player.”

I'm posting this article here for all of you who have been parading the "Wenger have no money to spend" and "we have a stadium to pay for" arguments.

Wheel and come again!


Boss Wenger has millions to spend

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/teams/a/arsenal/7587530.stm

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has millions available to spend on players.

The Gunners have lost Mathieu Flamini, Alexander Hleb and Gilberto since the end of last season - and Wenger had been expected to strengthen his squad.

"If he said 'I want this guy and he's £30m, can I buy him?', the answer is yes. Absolutely yes," revealed Arsenal director Danny Fizsman.


"It's not our decision who Wenger spends money on, nor will it ever be our decision."

   
If Arsene found the right player he would buy him

Arsenal director Danny Fizsman
Arsenal have not won a trophy for three seasons and there have been calls from supporters for Wenger to bolster his squad with some big-money signings.

The Gunners have brought in Samir Nasri from Marseille for £12m and Mikael Silvestre from Manchester United for an undisclosed fee.

But Fizsman added: "There were great expectations and hopes that we would buy heavily this summer.

"We totally back Wenger, it's his decision.

"If Arsene found the right player he would buy that player, but at the moment his hasn't."

And Fizsman admitted that if the Gunners were to buy established players before the transfer window shuts on 1 September, it could cause problems.

"There's a dual problem for him," said the Arsenal director of Wenger.

"If we buy star names, you are talking about relatively mature players who need to be integrated into the way Arsene plays - they don't know our style and it also impacts on the youngsters who have been brought through."
   
606: DEBATE
Should Wenger be spending money?

Wenger recently said in an interview that he wants to develop his first-team players through the youth ranks at the club.

The Frenchman said that he decided on this policy during the club's development of their Emirates Stadium, which opened at the start of the 2006-07 season.

"When we decided to build the stadium I wanted to anticipate the possibility of financial restrictions, so I concentrated on youth," Wenger said in an interview with the Independent newspaper.

"I also felt the best way to create an identity with the way we play football, to get players integrated into our culture, with our beliefs, our values, was to get them as young as possible and to develop them together.

"I felt it would be an interesting experiment to see players grow together with these qualities, and with a love for the club."

Vulnerable one ah hope yuh read the article.

Sorry, but it sounds like the Arse board of directors are covering their backsides from the fans.

Its common knowledge that Arsenal have a significant debt with regards to the new stadium and a percentage of transfer money goes towards paying that.

Quote
"If he said 'I want this guy and he's £30m, can I buy him?', the answer is yes. Absolutely yes,"

But they couldn't come up with the 22 million that Zenith wanted for Arshavin...

Wenger lauds Arsenal youngsters 
BBC Sport

 
Mexican Carlos Vela scored a hat-trick on his full senior debut
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says his young team which beat Sheffield United 6-0 in the Carling Cup had a "complete" look despite an average age of 19.

Mexican Carlos Vela, 17, led the scoring with a hat-trick while England's Jack Wilshere, 16, scored his first senior goal for the club.

"We looked like the complete team and I'm very proud of that," Wenger said.

"I'm not as surprised as you because I see them every day but you never know how they'll respond on the big stage."


Wenger, who has admitted the group are the best set of youngsters he has coached, watched as 20-year-old Nicklas Bendtner scored the other two goals in a scintillating performance.

"They just went out there are played with the belief we want them to have and with the spirit we want them to have," Wenger said.

"We want to win the trophy with this team," he added, when asked if he would change the side as he did for the loss to Spurs in the Carling Cup semi-final last season.

"We can of course go all the way and we can win it as well. Why not? These players do not play like kids, they play like people with intelligence, with talent and with spirit."  606: DEBATE
What can I say? Unbelievable stuff

determinedJPSmith

Vela's superb trio gave Wenger a timely reminder of his potential having spent the last 18 months in Spain on loan at Salamanca and Osasuna to gain a work permit.

The teenager has been a hit at international level already having won the golden boot with Mexico as they won the Under-17 World Championships in 2005.

But the way he curled his first goal around United keeper Paddy Kenny, then controlled and chipped him for his second before drilling home his third, will encourage Wenger to hand him his first Premier League start having come on a substitute against Newcastle recently.

Sheffield United's Gary Speed, who at 39 was twice the age of many Arsenal's players, was one of the few United players to emerge from Tuesday night's game with any credit as the Blades were almost bystanders in a footballing lesson.

Boss Kevin Blackwell agreed that his Championship side were simply outclassed.

"They were awesome at times and would have beaten most teams," he said. "We knew they were a good set of lads, but nobody knew how good they were.

"Arsenal are one of the few teams I would pay to watch. I've spoken to Arsene and he's admitted that these are the best single group of players he's had, they're exceptional."

A well-deserved loss for Arsenal.  I slept thru the first half and didn't see it... but I can't imagine that I missed much.  From accounts it seemed Hull played them to a standstill there.  However after the shitty scramble goal they fell into a 15-minute spell where I thought they played the game with contempt... as though the win was there for their taking...whenever they wanted it. 

Very nonchalant, even lazy passing and defending... resulting in acres of time and space for Geovanni to shoot...and score.  Incidentally Almunia should have done better at reading the flight of that ball, it wasn't that hard a bullet that he couldn't better shift his feet under him.  Cousin's winner was just a well-taken header... you can fault Gallas for allowing him to get open, but sometiimes good offense beats good defense.   On this play the defense wasn't good, but not all bad.  Just better offense by Cousin.

The truth is Gallas has been a liability in his defending for three years now. But he is a big name and people never want to single out Gallas. The truth is as a central defender Gallas has cost both Arsenal & France with his lapses.

He is weak and routinely gets outmusceled in the air. If he would attack the ball on the defensive end with the same fervor as he does on the offensive end he would do better.

i don't say this publicly but i will

i want toure as captain, gallas has pulled us out when we need a goal manytimes he has, but it doesn't pay off the debt of goals he has cost us

charlie george didnt say it but we need a better center half, galla sover 30 now so is one year contracts for him

arsenal should have started with song and bendnter but they played mid week in carling cup, seriously, wilshire n ramsay should been let in too as they hungry to prove

thats 6 lost points where we played either lazy or arrogantly as though the conclusion was predetermined, and this shit about ball watching and letting men get away from you in the box has got to be cut out!

just watched the high lights

geovanni goal great strike, but wtf are we thinking when u give a guy liek that room at the top of the box???
and cousin goal he lost his marker and still had 4 of us floundering, and why put short ppl on the line????

Thanks for the link... yeah, didn't look to me as though the ball went out.  If the ball didn't go out then the goal should have stood.  Not only did it affect the final score, but probably affected the game itself, Arsenal might have defended diffrently in the 85' with a one-goal advantage (which is to say they may not have been as attack-minded, leaving themselves vulnerable).

I find that there is far too many officiating controversies in just this past 7 weeks of action in the EPL.

yea i got no beef everyone knows it should have stood. leadbitter strike was awefrickinsome the kid is a locallad and cried after he scored.

as for officiating cockups, don't tell me human eroor blah blah, we have the technology, doh tell me time wasted on result vs flow of game, we waste enough time with million pound a year footballers diving all over the pitch and feigning injury (most embarrasing aspect of world soccer) in treating and removing them from the pitch. reffs need a frickin revolution.

"It was attack versus defence in one half of the pitch and we were not sharp enough to make the difference.

"We tried to go for it from the first minute to the last minute. It is amazing to see the difference in possession between the teams."



cry me a river....   :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(
the man was asked questions about the teams performance after each game he gives an honest reply and to you haters he's complaining, fact is he's telling you his opinionbased on the facts he saw live infront of him at pitch level.
so based on your comment every manager cries a river after a loss or draw.

plus you will never have anything good to say about arsenal, they could go the whole of champs league and conceed only one goal and win the champs league and you would still be negative, they could win carling cup still negative win every flickin thing and stil negative, at least come with some relevant constructive critisim

Clearly a good goal ..... dems de breaks.
http://www.fliggo.com/video/FpO2aSwq


Thanks for the link... yeah, didn't look to me as though the ball went out.  If the ball didn't go out then the goal should have stood.  Not only did it affect the final score, but probably affected the game itself, Arsenal might have defended diffrently in the 85' with a one-goal advantage (which is to say they may not have been as attack-minded, leaving themselves vulnerable).

I find that there is far too many officiating controversies in just this past 7 weeks of action in the EPL.

yea i got no beef everyone knows it should have stood. leadbitter strike was awefrickinsome the kid is a locallad and cried after he scored.

as for officiating cockups, don't tell me human eroor blah blah, we have the technology, doh tell me time wasted on result vs flow of game, we waste enough time with million pound a year footballers diving all over the pitch and feigning injury (most embarrasing aspect of world soccer) in treating and removing them from the pitch. reffs need a frickin revolution.

I think that more to do with recently losing his father.

As for the other goal, its fine with replays but I can understand how the linesman can get it wrong on that even though TV couldn't really prove it either way.  Its one of those that could of gone either way and you just have to shrug your shoulders and get on with it.  No way near as bad as some of the blatant ones that go on week in week out.   The ref was awful give some weird decision both ways booked 8 players and there was hardly a iffy tackle in the whole match.

Cesc Fabregas has told Spanish radio that he will assess his future at the end of the season.

The Spanish star has also admitted that a return to Barcelona would be a 'dream come true'.

Fabregas admitted he opted to stay at Emirates over the summer following his success at Euro 2008 with Spain.

The midfield schemer claims he stayed for the sole reason to try and win trophies at Arsenal, as so far during his five-year Gunners career he has picked up just one medal after lifting the FA Cup in 2005.

Now he is determined to pick up some silverware this term, but admits he will then look at his options.

"Right now I'm fine at Arsenal but I cannot deny that to return and play for Barca would be a dream come true," he told Catalan based station RAC 1.

"I chose to stay at the club last summer and right now I'm totally focused on the reason for that decision which was to try and win trophies.

"We'll see how things have gone by the end of the season.

"The fact is that Barca are playing cinematic football right now and it's fantastic to see that the other day when they beat Atletico Madrid 6-1 they had seven or eight guys who, like me, came through the club's youth system."

Hleb hoping for Fabregas reunion

Spain international Fabregas revealed earlier this week that he would one day like to return to Barca, the club he left to join Arsenal in 2003, and for Hleb that day cannot come soon enough.

Hleb moved to Barca this summer after three seasons at the Gunners, and the Belarus ace would be delighted if the highly-coveted Fabregas followed suit.

"We get on very well on and off the pitch. For me he is like a brother. We call each other a lot to talk about things," Hleb said in El Mundo Deportivo.

"He tells me he misses me at Arsenal and, without wanting to detract from anyone, I would love it if he came to Barca to be a part of all this.

"I don't stop insisting that he should return to Barca and he doesn't stop insisting that he is very happy at Arsenal and with Arsene Wenger.

"I will keep boring him until he changes his mind. If in the end he listens to me, I think it would be great for Barcelona."

Gael Clichy has revealed how a conversation with Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp instilled him with the belief that he could succeed in North London.

The 23-year-old has made the left-back position his own at Emirates Stadium since Ashley Cole departed the club for rivals Chelsea in 2006.

Bergkamp, who now holds a coaching role at Ajax, spent 11 years with the Gunners, and Clichy has explained the Dutchman made a lasting impact on him.

The France defender told L'Equipe: "I will never forget what Dennis Bergkamp told me. It was in 2005 when I was injured. I had doubts and I didn't feel fine.

"Bergkamp is a great man that doesn't talk a lot. One day he came to see me and asked how long it would take for me to recover. I told him I didn't know.

"He watched Ashley Cole, who was also having a treatment, and finally said: 'Come back soon, and if you succeed, you will get his position.'

"Dennis and Ashley are friends, but that simple sentence was so good to me. I held on, and then I recovered quickly."

Robin van Persie and Cesc Fabregas have been passed fit to face Everton at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

The Spaniard broke his nose against Belgium on Wednesday and the Dutchman was struggling with a muscular problem but Arsène Wenger confirmed that both are available for selection against the Toffees.

Johan Djourou will miss the game after suffering concussion while playing for Switzerland last Saturday. Abou Diaby is available for the first time this season.

Despite a lengthy injury list, Wenger admitted that he may rest Theo Walcott after the winger played 79 minutes for England on Wednesday night.

“Fabregas and Van Persie will be available,” said the Frenchman at his pre-match press conference. “Walcott has come back available but I might rest him because he played on Wednesday night in Minsk. For everybody else there is no news.

“Djourou has concussion from the first game and we were a bit cautious when he came back but he is out, we do not want to take any chances. Gallas and Bendtner are the two players who got injured during the international break and are not available.

“We have one bit of good news though which is Diaby being back. I hope that the good news is that Gallas, Sagna and Bendtner are not long-term injuries, the only long term ones are Eduardo and Rosicky.”

Nicklas BendtnerMonday, October 20, 2008
Nicklas Bendtner fit to face Fenerbahce. He missed the Everton game after picking up an ankle injury while on international duty with Denmark.

 Tomas Rosicky
Friday, October 17, 2008
Wenger hopes to have his Czech midfielder back before the New Year. Speaking on October 2 he said: "I monitor Rosicky's progress very closely but at the moment it is very difficult to put a date on his comeback. We are not pessimistic about the future of his career but we still need more patience. If he comes back before Christmas we have done very well but I think we can achieve that, that in December he can play again."

Eduardo
Friday, October 17, 2008
The striker is continuing his recovery from a fractured leg. Speaking on October 2, Wenger said: "Eduardo is doing very well but is not close to play. Eduardo will be OK before Christmas, of course."

diaby aka el diablo put in ah friggin great shift today

It would be a waste to put Diaby on the wing like last year. He's the best CM to partner Fabregas. Wasn't very defensive yesterday, but that wasn't his role. He can be a box-to-box midfielder like Flamini, just better going forward.

Eboue is just filling in on the RW as a utility player .... whenever Rosicky is back or Theo is ready to play 90 mins every week, I think Eboue would go back to being a 2nd choice Right Back. And a good one at that.

The weak link yesterday was Alex Song. Too slow. Was at fault for the Sunderland goal when he played in midfield, him and Denilson at fault for Everton when he played RB, and not that convincing as a CB yesterday.
Hopefully Gallas, Toure, Sagna and Djourou will keep him on the bench.

diaby is similar to patrick viera whooaaaaa

we almost have too many midfield options when rosicky back

wenger hadda alternate games with 4-4-2 or 4-5-1 or 4-3-3

yesterday was 4-5-1

think of the mid filed options; nasri, cesc, denilson, diaby, ramsey, rosicky when he fixed

forwards; ade, robin, vela, wallcott, eduardo by christmas

defense; gallas, silvestre, toure, sagna, clichy, eboue

i still feel arsenal needs one/two serious solid centerback, one/two serious solid mid fielder was praying we got alonso and yaya

Tweety couldn't do that much about the own goal though ... it was basically deflected. The shot was hit across goal with pace.
And the blame for the Everton goal rests with Song and Denilson

Diaby was always hailed as Patric Viera II ... by France and Arsenal.

Walcott should be in your midfield list, with 16 year old Jack Wilshire, and Eboue
And Bendtner as a forward
And defence ... Song, and Djourou (who is better than Song). And I think Kieran Gibbs is 2nd to Clichy .. can't wait till Traore is back, he's lighting up at Pompey

What a recovery:

Eduardo is 'three weeks away' from return

Eduardo will be back playing competitive football in three weeks.

The Arsenal striker suffered horrific leg and ankle injuries at Birmingham back on February 23 and, in the immediate aftermath, it was feared his career could be in doubt.

However the Croatian was operated on that evening in the Midlands and has been working hard on his rehabilitation ever since.

Speaking at Arsenal’s AGM on Thursday morning, Arsène Wenger confirmed that the long wait is nearly over.

“Eduardo is three weeks away from playing competitive football,” he said.

However, it appears Tomas Rosicky’s return will take a little longer.

“He should be back after Christmas,” said Wenger.

The Czech midfielder has been out since January 29 with a hamstring problem.

It funny how this is news, especially on a site where Latapy is defended on smoking.

Maybe you should look at your own captin hero, banana split John Terry... any drunk fights outside nightclubs recently?

Please all yuh cah defend against no decent side! Yuh midfield weak as well as yuh defence. Yuh score a few yuh give up a few but yuh aint winning shite!
LOL :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

Go to the Man U thread nah!!! :devil:


Nah this more fun! Somebody needs tuh drop some reality on these overly optimistic Gunners forever people who keep drinking Arsene9's kool aid!


so its wrong to be optimistic about a side thats consistently been in europe? at the top of top flight english football? in a manager that has produced a few fa cups and premier leagues in a decade??

if thats a crime then whats the point of being a fan then?
you might as well pack up too, cus manu fans seem to forget liverpool has a far bigger trophy cabinent than anyother english side, manu are still relative "new comers" to the silverware scene, allyuh jus doh like that we keep the pressure on you guys not to slackoff

so yeah, keep hating, i'll keep being optimistic cus i garantee every time we have won it and will win it real sweeter for us than for the rest of you wagonistas

Does Adebayor believe in Obeah?
I see the man do a lil one foot 3 hop shimmy .... kinda like what Dickie Bird used to do whenever he was umpiring and the scores were on Nelson.
Yeah, so after Adebayor hop hop skip ... first thing he do is buss a header jess wide.

If is Obeah, somebody put him in touch with Carlos Edwards.

Haha I notice that too  ... but it seem to work .. the header, then a shot that went in off a defender, and then a goal

Good game, but some bad calls.
Goalie shoulda been sent off for handling outside the box, it wasn't even close, the linesman is blind.
And among some of the other cards handed out, the red in the 94th minute? Harsh, yellow was fine. No doubt West Ham will appeal.

He alot better than Adebayor was at 20. The forwards isn't the promlem for Arsene though ... RVP, Ade, Bendtner, and Vela. With Eduardo due back by Christmas.
It the center of midfiled I worried about. Song and Denilson not good enough. Diaby might be the best to partner Cesc.
