RVP Booing: by SV
Yesterday Arsenal gave an absolute twatting to what was, in fairness, a decidedly average Cologne side. Our skipper – and he is still our skipper – got about twenty minutes of game time. He got, in fact, just enough game time to leave his situation in a state of complete ambiguity. He didn’t get enough game time to really make an impact and play to his fullest level (which might have indicated he was staying), but neither did he not play at all (which would have certainly indicated his departure). .......Read the full article here

It is being reported this morning that the Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is very keen on bringing the young Portugese midfielder Danilo Pereira to Anfield, but the youngster, who has been favourably compared to a young Patrick Vieira, is more likely to end up at the Emirates next week.
According to the Metro, Arsene Wenger has got the Arsenal representatives “working overtime” at the moment trying to secure the Parma starlet’s signature before the close of the transfer window.
Pereira recently starred as the Portugal U20 team got to the final of the U20 World Cup but were only just beaten 3-2 by Brazil, alerting many top clubs on the way. .......Read the full article here

Arsène Wenger’s men don’t have any excuses left for their performance on Saturday. Even when down to 10 men they should never have let a 4 goal lead slip. Any other team would have parked the bus and spent the second half booting the ball out of their own half. And there is no shame in doing that.
Unlikely comebacks aren’t that unlikely, especially this season and especially with Arsenal. I don’t know how many times I’ve seen a side score early on, only to become complacent and lose grip on the game. Or a side go down to ten men and work themselves into the ground in order to win. This is football and it only takes seconds to score a goal, games can change just like that. .......Read the full article here

The Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira has played his last game for Inter Milan, and is nearly certain to be rejoining his old boss Roberto Mancini at Manchester City.
Jose Mourinho saw Vieira play the whole 90 minutes against Chievo before the Portugese manager gave Vieira a special mention in his post-match comments.
Mourinho said: “I should give a special mention to Vieira,”
“I don’t know where he will go, maybe to England which he likes a lot, but we should thank him for what he has done in these years at Inter. .......Read the full article here

The Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger thinks his team will be stronger now that he has Denilson and Abou Diaby back from injury, and praised the teams bouncebackability after losing badly to Chelsea.
“Diaby was out for a while, Denilson was out for a while too so we were a bit shorter physically in midfield but now they are there again,” said Wenger.
“Don’t forget that these players are 22 now, and at 21 or 22 you start to be a man.
“When you are younger, it’s hard to stand up against a man but when you are that bit older you start to do that. .......Read the full article here

The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has again emphasised his need for a striker as injuries have decimated his front line.
With Van Persie, Nicolas Bendtner and Eduardo all out injured for Saturday’s game against Stoke, he then lost Thomas Rosicky to a groin strain, as well as minor injuries to Gallas, Traore and Arshavin.
Wenger said: “We pick up more injuries than the other big teams, that is true,” Wenger said. “You cannot say there is not a reason for it but we have not found it yet.
“It’s the worst season for injuries for us. And they are all in the same area – in the offensive side. Last year it was in the defensive side.” .......Read the full article here
