anyone know the extend to Welbeck's injury??? Is he off international duty and headed back to London Colney??
Wilshere should be definetly playing tomorrow so hope puts on a show for us all, played fantastic against Besiktas so hopefully he can carry on playing like that.

If he keeps performing consistently I'd put my on him to replace Ramsey in the starting line up as evidently Ramsey hasn't been at his best lately.

Hope the best for Wilshere, great talent, only a matter of time.

Funny how all the ex United staff and players are sad to see Welbeck leave. Here is Beckham's reaction.

We've struck something of a blow to the identity of their club, he was their Jack Wilshere in a sense (young, talented, top talent coming from the academy etc).
Its sad to see a good academy product leave the club. Utd fans love their own academy players. Also he is a die hard Utd fan from Manchester. Id would pain me to see him succeed at Arsenal but i wish him all the best.
JUST A REMINDER THAT THEO WALCOTT IS THE BEST FOOKING PLAYER IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW.

We demanded for trophies after a tiny drought, Arsene got us two more in a space of 3 months
We craved for more players, Arsene got us five, a world class one in Alexis
We didnt want to sell our best players, we haven't no more after the financial affairs with building one of the best stadiums in the world
We wanted more British players, Arsene now probably will have the most in a starting lineup, and will only provide positive effects to the English national team
Last of all, he has gone through every single emotion that we have gone through, but he has to live with it every day, with the media targeting him, and clueless fans who think they know how to run a club

Hes done soo many things that we wanted to do, and yet some fans moan about more stuff... Surprised AW hasn't told some of our fans to go do one

What you have to ask yourself is can this team mount a serious title challenge? If the answer is yes then as a fan you are happy. If the answer is no then thats when the moaning and groaning starts.

@Gunsnramsey and others

I believe that Chelsea is some way ahead of Arsenal this year, but Chelsea is some way ahead of every other team. No amount of spending money will fix that problem, because the players you need to reach that level are simply not on the market. Keeping that in mind, I'm very happy with the players coming in this summer. If Chelsea messes up for whatever reason, we have a good shot at winning the title.
U are Mr Positive..
If Wenger sees chambers as a CDM/CB then he should buy a centre back...
If he sees him as a RB/CB then buy a CDM...
I think this concept is very simple...


I think alot of people are seeing chambers as a RB(backup) first and a CB(backup) second. The real prob is noone knows how wenger truly sees Chambers or bellerin.
Wenger hasnt made it clear and it seems he is using chambers as first back up in both areas and this makes people nervous.
Lets look at last year, bacary was our backup CB and RB starter. However Bacary wasnt first choice backup for CB, that was verms. Plus chambers looks like he can play CDM so now people are seeing chambers as back up for three positions. Makes me nervous LOL!!!!

The good thing is teta and flamini arent injury prone, they get an injury the longest they will be gone for is a month.
Diaby isnt up for discussion...

One final note, wenger said last month that we are a bit short at the back with these same exact players, i guess we arent short now LOL...

Ps wenger will be playing Monreal at CB at some point this year...

I domt see why this team cant mount a title challenge, lst season we were 7 points off the top with most of our key men out of the majority of the season
we have recruited some good talent this window but so has our rivals! Chelsea/liverpool/mancity have also stregthen their squad well Manu too in all honesty! This season will much harder than last season we cant really rely on that fact that we were 7 points off the top!
This season will much harder with pool/manu challenging us for the 3rd 4th place!
don't forgot that we suffered a lot last season against the top team with heavy defeats! If we sort that out we can be a threat for the title if god forbids no serious injuries happens in our defensive departments!

Anyway looking forward to our season! New formation, new player can't wait to see how we perform after we gel together! Thoigh i dont like the idea of using Ozil on the wing! COYG
I have to admit that the Arsenal's shirt looks great on Welbeck.
Gonna take some getting used to. Still feels like a United player. Bit like seeing Walcott in a United shirt, feels odd.
+1
Had the same feeling about RVP when he joined us. You'll get used to it once he starts scoring for you guys :)
oh the wonderful menagerie of Welbeck....
Oh arsenal what to do with u!!!!!!
OH Leeds United FC on transfer deadline day XD

Future bearer of the #9 jersey :P
Hopefully not, it's a cursed number in Arsenal.
Worried that we couldn't sign a proper DM-that might be a huge problem for us.

i think wenger just wanted cover, i dont think he wants to displace or replace arteta ramsey or wilshere from the team.
If that's the case SIF I am dissapointed in Wenger that he chose individual players needs over the teams need.

It's clear that we needed a DM but it's been ignored because of the likes of Arteta and Flamini. The DM situation doesn't concern Wilshere because he's nowhere near disciplined enough to play that important role, Arteta can play there but only against weaker oppositions where he shines but against the big teams hes flaws get exposed. Flamini is the exact same but more reckless with less passing range which makes him only suitable for lesser games.

I just hope we can last the mile this season with the both of them because it's gonna be a long ride to get that CL spot.

We did it last year so we got hope.

Let me try to understand this, What sort of passing range does mikel arteta have LOL... Arteta cant pass, i think alot of guys judge a player on their previous reputations and not on they're current.
Flamini is a better defensive mid than teta purely because he is more athletic. Better pace,stamina, acrobatics. Even though as of late Teta has leaping like a leopard. I couldnt believe the height he was getting on his jumps.
Arteta isn't an amazing CDM, but are you seriously saying he can't pass?! I can't believe I even read that.

He is the reason we keep possession in matches & controls our tempo.
Davian. Did you just state Arteta can't pass?

LOL. Please take a look at his long range passing...and his composure and linkup plays.
To prove a point People judge players off reputation and how elegant and inelegant a player looks.
If a player is tall,powerful and strong in the tackle then he is a defensive mid, if the player looks the opposite then he is not.

I judge players on ability, mentality and efficiency...
Lets look at some players
Michael Essien- defensive mid and all round player for former club chelsea. because of his stature people automatically see him as a defensive mid. Ironically when he was at lyon he plays attacking mid. he also plays attacking mid for his country. and there are many examples, jon obi mikel, fellaini, khedira, yaya toure. even viera would be considered a purely defensive mid by some.

definitions:
Ability- Tackling,passing,dribbling etc...
Mentakity- how often does he go forward and stay back, does he like staying put MOST OF THE TIME or goes forward alot.
Efficiency- how well does he do whatever he does..

Sometimes i feel people put limits on players cause of previous reputation or how they look when they play. People should watch the players carefully on the pitch and see how they actually play their positions...
When i say he cant pass i mean he doesnt deliver defence splitting through balls at all. No slick through balls be it on the ground or in the air.
Flamini had 97% passing last game. Noone has said anything about it.
I think we should judge players on they're performances and not reputation.

His job isn't defense splitting through balls. He can pass to save his life if he has to.
Bahahaha this made my day :D
Arteta doesn't make defence splitting passes from CDM? Oh no! We're screwed! We'll just have to hope that Ozil, Cazorla, Walcott, Alexis, Ramsey, Wilshere and any other bloody attacking player plus the CF can provide them....

His job as CDM is distribution from out of defense, spraying the ball wide to the wings and helping us keep possession by making simple passes to open players. He also provides some fantastic long ball service.

Since you used Mikel as an example, check out the comments on Chelsea forum jizzing themselves cos Mikel managed a backheel assist vs Everton. They're excited because it happens so rarely. With all your definitions, you're still just the same: no goals, no assists = this player sucks. LOL

It should be evident after Leicester just how in disarray our midfield is and you want to remove the most positive mental aspect of that midfield? If you can't see how valuable Arteta is to our gameplay then you need to stop watching the shiny ball, step back and observe the players off the ball during matches.
