    I did have a chuckle that the picture of Rosicky shows some tape clearly visible around the hamstring! That’s the Arsenal for sure!

    Hope Arshavin get the number 10 shirt, it’ll give him extra power for the upcoming season.

    if Szczesny (tip: don’t type the name, copy and paste) is as good as this female, they will win this season, no doubt, :mrgreen:

    Nasri and Rosicky with the strap? Skipper trials incase Cesc cant get than skin-tight Barca shirt off before the new season.

    Good kit!

    well folks this season is a big one for some of the arsenal under achievers like diaby, nasri, walcott, deneilson, vanpercy, all these players have had their setting in period now they must deliver after this season we will no who can cut it and who can’t no more excuses walcott had a long rest lets see if he is worth that tag world class that they like to give every english player nasri, he had a good rest as well no excuses diaby more experience he better come good and deneilson had been at arsenal two long to not produce and every bodies favorite mr vanpercy they say he is world class he has a fantastic technique but you need more to be world class i know he has had injury problems most time and stats show he has not scored a free kick in two years for arsenal this is last chance for robin if he get injured sell make no sense but he most of all must play well and score lots of goals he has been at arsenal a long time and must produce………….

    guys i cant believe Laurent Koscielny, is the same height
    as vamerlyn i taught he was taller how the hell could wenger buy a defender the same height as the one we have when the nature of english football requires u to have good height at the back to prevent aerial bombardment as in the past and of course physical problems with the likes of stoke and chelsea have wenger not learn from five trophyless seasons i cant believe this and still debating if to buy a new defender i must say i had optimism for the new season but after seeing this i think we are a dead horse again hell if this is the case then cesc should bolt and go to barca wenger nothing personal but i think ur an absolute idiot…………

    @kel koscieny is 6.1 vermalen is 5 11, checck your stats before rainin abuse on wenger, and as a matter of fact i can´t seem to remember anyone getting the best of vermalen in areial duel last season.

    July 20, 2010 at 12:24 pm #

    Also Laurent isn’t an automatic starter?

    Djourou possesses the height we need. Whether he is the answer or not is a different story.

    Verminator > Every other CB in the league. I wouldn’t swap him for anyone.

    @ Gunna shah 0k my bad he is taller but still arsenal concede a whole lot of goals last season so pls don ‘t talk about anyone getting the best of vamarlen he is part of the defence and for god sakes dont mention djourou he has improved in inches am not abusing wenger the fact is Arsenal, have not won a single trophy in FIVE(5) years and the League in SIX(6) years that is the truth it hurts dont’t it
    no one likes to hear the truth we all like promises and lies and thats what wenger have been feeding Arsenal fans i have nothing persona;l againt wenger but sh*t is Sh*t notice we are already in austria no new goalie i will be shocked if one comes in we wait and see………….

    It’s the first day back at training after the World Cup, and thankfully everyone came back fit. The players are chatting about their WC experiences, while Vela and Theo play in their giant Ferrari pedal cars they bought with their pocket money.

    Someone walks onto the training ground surrounded by a cloud of smoke and gradually the squad recognise the face of Wilshere, swigging from a can of Stella. It is difficult to tell at first who it is, as one of his eyes is half-shut, and dark purple and blue in colour, and the recently broken nose is still taped up.

    Wenger looks up and curses under his breath, instantly regretting letting Wilshere spend the summer with his new Bolton team-mates.

    Wilshere swaggers over to the players – his gold chain bouncing on his chest. His new tattoos on his arms are healing nicely. He greets his team mates and they all try to ignore his farting – although theo giggles a bit.

    Wilshere kicks his empty can at the goal and Almunia tries to catch it, but the can hits his left eye, the trainer has a quick look and says he will be out for 2 weeks. Wilshere pulls a fresh 6 pack from his large kit bag and offers them around. Wenger slaps Theo as he tries to grab one and takes advantage of a Wilshere coughing fit to grab the beer and kit bag from his hands. A couple of spliffs fall out but luckily only Eboue seems to recognise what they are, and he swiftly palms them.

    Wenger steps over the pile of fresh green pleghm and tries to resore some calm by starting the training session.

    Can we start with some elbowing asks Wilshere eagerly, and TV gives him the thumbs up. Wenger asks what he means and Wilshere demonstrates on TV, who falls to the ground in agony. As he is carried off Wilshere explains its part of the basic warmup at Bolton, to be used in the penalty box against the opposition.

    Wenger holds his head in his hands and mutters something to himself. What about basic ankle techniques then? Before Wenger has a chance to respond, Wilshere throws the ball at the feet of Chamakh and then dives in with his studs showing.

    As Chamakh screams and falls to the ground,Diaby is about to complain to Wenger that it’s HIS job to injure his team mates in training. But by this time Wenger is screaming at the coach to get security, vowing he will never let players go on loan north of Watford ever again. Wilshere decks two of the security staff before they eventually restrain him.

    After 10 minutes of ranting Wenger appears to have calmed down. But now there is a strange look in his eyes, one that frightens Theo and Vela, who scoot behind the bigger players to hide. Wenger walks slowly away, over to the car park, ignoring the shouts from his players. He pulls the shotgun from the boot of his car and sets the sat-nav for Burnden Way, Bolton – someone is going to pay for this.

    Haven’t been giving any comments recently but have been keeping up to date. Has anyone else noticed that Gallas and Silvestre have been removed from the players list on the main website. They have obviously gone now but nothing official on the site and no goodbyes which is unusual.
    GLODIN’s comments absolutely priceless, excellent. I hope you don’t mind but I had to e-mail to a friend, I didn’t take the credit.

    Who’s Patrick Weber? Not been officially introduced…….
    Had to take off for a while and while my full squad expectations(Goalie(Hart), Defender, Midfielder(Oezil?), have not yet been met, i like the way some others have been hammering on that point so far.
    @ANDY – Good to have you back

    Well, don’t forget guys that there’s a difference for goalkeeper between one or two matches and regular playing with #1. Gunners should be happy that in his squad is 3 equals goalies and each of them must fight for place in the first 11. Fabianski and Szczesny are two of three (third is Kuszczak fro ManU) polish national goalkeepers and – in my opinion – this is a reason to be proud that they both plays for Gunners.
