The Arsenal fans are quite used to seeing Arsene Wenger mess about with players and their positions, sometimes with great success, so maybe we shouldn’t be too surprised to heat that the French manager is considering signing a left back as the Gunners’ new defensive midfielder.
David Alaba is the Austrian international who is currently riding high after winning the Champions League, Bundesliga title and the German version of the FA cup with Bayern Munich. So you would think the chances of getting the 20-year old to leave his current club were zero to very small. According to the Daily Star, however, that is just what Wenger is thinking of doing. .......Read the full article here

Are Arsenal doing the right thing with their money? by SS

Possibly the best thing about the Arsenal attack this season is the versatility and number of options available to Arsene Wenger. With Giroud, Podolski, Walcott and Gervinho there is a mix of pace, power, trickery, shooting, aerial ability and wing play. Perhaps the one thing the Gunners attack is really lacking is clinical finishing, and that may be why Arsenal have been keeping a close watch on the natural goalscorer who is currently joint top scorere in the Champions League this season. .......Read the full article here

Most of the talk in the media in the build up to the game has been about Gareth Bale, which is not that surprising given the scoring run he is on, but Wenger has gently reminded people that football is not all about individuals. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal fans knew they were seeing something special when Jack Wilshere returned from a loan spell at Bolton Wanderers. He played 49 games for the Gunners in that breakthrough season of 2010/2011, including an awesome display against Barcelona in the Champions league. However, 17 months out of the game with injury, coupled with an immense burden of expectation would normally have a serious eeffect on a young player’s form.
Wilshere’s increasingly dominant performances and his outstanding display for England against Brazil have proved that this will not happen to our Jack, so what makes him so special? The famous inventor Thomas Edison coined the phrase `Genius in one percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration`, and Bacary Sagna has revealed that Wilshere has an unbelievable work ethic for a young player. .......Read the full article here

We may never find out if Arsenal made an offer of £30 million to the Serie A club, Napoli, for the transfer of their Uruguayan hit man Edinson Cavani, but if we did they have turned us down. it is not surprising realyy, and was only ever going to be an opening bid. Cavani is one of the most sought after strikers in world football and has a contract with Napoli until 2016, so it would take more than £30 million to persuade them to sell. .......Read the full article here
The last time Stewart Robson had something positive to say about Arsenal was, nobody knows, because it was before records began. The former player seems to have a chip on his shoulder the size of the Emirates stadium, because he is never slow to comment about news coming from Arsenal and he is relentlessly negative.
The Talksport presenter has now offered his words of wisdom about the Theo Walcott contract situation and, surprise surprise, he thinks that Arsenal and Arsene Wenger has got it wrong. Most Arsenal fans are pleased about the news that Walcott is about to sign a new contract worth about £90,000 a week, but Robson thinks Theo has had Arsenal on and is about to stop playing well and scoring. .......Read the full article here
Wilfried Zaha is an Arsenal fan, and will soon be an Arsenal player, apparently. There are rumours that an agreement has been made between Arsenal, Crystal Palace and Zaha about his transfer to the Gunners in January, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
Palace rejected a bid of around £8 million from Manchester United, according to the Mail. With Alex Ferguson stepping up his pursuit of Christiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid, United are unlikely to pursue the matter further, leaving just Tottenham challenging Arsenal for the 20-year old. Given that he supports Arsenal and that he wants to play in the Champions league, there is no way he is going to choose Spurs over us. .......Read the full article here
