Ryo Miyaichi has been an Arsenal player for over two years now, but he is still waiting to make his Premier League debut for the club. The 20-year old is well on the road to recovery after picking up an ankle injury during his recent loan spell at Wigan Athletic. The Japanese international is hoping to be fit enough to take part in the pre-season training and tours with Arsenal and finally force himself into first team contention.
“Being there helped me to grow up,” said Miyaichi. “As a person, I’m growing up every day. When I was at Wigan the training was very good and the people are very kind so I got some good experience there. I feel I’m improving but I need to keep working hard.” .......Read the full article here

The news that Arsenal are going to be facing Nagoya Grampus this summer is not only welcome to Arsene Wenger, who managed the Japanese club for two years before his arrival at Arsenal, it is also a home-coming for our very own up-and-coming Ryo Miyaichi, who can’t wat to play in front of his friends and family.
“I hope I can play in Japan as an Arsenal player,” Ryo said on Arsenal.com. “It would be a great moment for me.
“Arsenal have a huge number of fans in Japan – like in China and Malaysia as well. It will be a good time for the whole team. I spoke with my family and my friends and they are happy to see Arsenal in Japan. They want to see me on the pitch of course! .......Read the full article here

If Arsenal had to recall all their young players back from their loaned clubs, the Gunners would be able to compile a very strong team. Probably one that could compete in the top half of the table. So, if its one thing Arsenal don’t lack, it’s talented youths. One such player who is currently out on loan and is an exciting prospect for the very near future is Ryo Miyaichi.
The Arsenal youngster is currently out on loan to Wigan this season and has already earned the praise of his manager. Ryo Miyaichi made his appearance as a sub against Fulham and is expected to get his first chance at a start of the season in the Capital One Cup . .......Read the full article here

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may have stolen the show with his first few performances for the Gunners, in which he managed to net two excellently-taken goals. Having already been linked with a full international call-up for England, the 18 year-old has a huge amount of pressure on him, especially after his £15 million transfer fee from Southampton.
His most recent appearance came in the win against Bolton in the Carling Cup last week but, after a bright start, he became sloppy and didn’t look the player he was just a couple of weeks ago. Even Wenger said, “He needs what I told you: the urgency that is used to dominate the games…. Now he is at a level where every single ball needs 100 per cent concentration and fight, and that is what he will learn in these games.” .......Read the full article here

Arsenal hosted Blackburn on Tuesday night in what was a frustrating night for both sides. The team sheet included last weeks debutants Aneke, Ozyakup and Ryo (who is still short of fitness)! Neil Banfield decided to try last weeks unused sub Nico Yennaris in an unfamiliar central midfield spot, with under 18’s Monakana, Ansah and Bihmoutine all getting places on the bench.
The game started slow with both teams trying to grab early goals, but Arsenal dominated possession for the first half, but lacked the spark to create clear-cut chances! Although Ozyakup was showing signs of his brilliant vision. .......Read the full article here

Ryo Miyaichi is not a name on the lips of most Arsenal fans, however, he is indeed their latest signing. The deal was put in place last summer on transfer deadline day and has recently been confirmed on the official club website. A statement read:

The 17 year-old wonderkid Ryo Miyaichi is set to join Arsenal before the end of the year, and revealed that it was extremely difficult to choose between joining the Dutch giants Ajax or Arsenal. He said that it was a conversation with Arsene Wenger that made him decide in favour of the London team.
“Mr Wenger told me that Arsenal is my home and I that should learn some English and come back soon”
“It was difficult to choose between Arsenal and Ajax, but Arsenal wanted me the most” .......Read the full article here

The dreaded Arsenal curse has struck Nicklas Bendtner, and the latest news from Denmark says that he will be out until next year at the earliest. The reported problem is a groin strain, but it is strange that the original injury arrived just after he started living with his sexy (and extremely rich) girlfriend Baroness Caroline Luel-Brockdorf.
I wouldn’t be so cynical as to say that his groin hasn’t had much chance to sort itself out. (Okay we know that the car crash is the official story so dont start slating me)
But the lovely Caroline is now pregnant, so hopefully by the New Year she will be shoving him away and he will have time to recover… .......Read the full article here
