Could this be the start of a new era at Arsenal? There is a report in today’s Sun that says that Lukasz Fabianski has suffered a leg injury, and that the young Pole Wojciech Szczesny is to be thrown in at the deep end by facing Man Utd at Old Trafford this evening.

Both of them are over the moon at their unexpected selection, but Wilshere is keeping his feet on the ground, and admits that becoming a regular for Arsenal must remain his first target. .......Read the full article here

I revealed last week that the Arsenal legend Thierry Henry had left Barcelona and is due to be unveiled by the New York Red Bulls on Thursday, and has now been officially announced , and his first match will be against the dreaded Spuds in a “friendly” game on the 22nd July!
Henry is over the moon to be taking over David Beckham’s position as the main ambassador for the MLS in promoting the soccer league across America. “This marks an exciting new chapter in my career and life,” Henry said. “It is an honour to play for the New York Red Bulls. I am fully aware of the team’s history and my sole goal during my time here is to help win the club its first championship. Knowing Red Bull’s significant commitment to soccer locally and internationally, I am confident that my team-mates and I will succeed.” .......Read the full article here
