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.”

Warner having an inspired performance. He's only playing because Niemi injured his wrist in the warm up.

Wenger sittin by idly while errbody else restock, how long he really feel d youth movement will last. As a Man U fan gettin talk from Arsenal men the past years I must say it will b sad to lose the banter as yall become less of a threat.
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.
Man U n Chelsea n maybe Liverpool have like 8 world class midfielders each so e-mail allyuh Wengeee and get in order. bless

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.

the score could have been 5 or 6 -1 but this was a good result. once arsenal take care of home field advantage and grind out wins away from home i think they are definitely in with a chance this season.

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.

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  :-\

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.
