"It was the winter holiday and I was back in Togo having a kickabout with friends when my phone rang.One of the boys answered it and said, 'Manu, it's Arsene for you'. 'Arsene who?' I said. 'Arsene Wenger', he said. 'Get out of it', I said, and grabbed the phone off him. But then I heard the voice. 'Allo'. F*****g hell. It is Arsene Wenger!"

Arsenal Sets New European Record

For 41 minutes agaist Hamburg, Arsenal had 11 players from 11 different countries, a Champions League first. It started in the 28th minute when Hoyte replaced the injured Toure and ended in the 69th minute when Baptista came on. It comes as no surprise as Arsenal have always been a club to look at talent instead of passports, yes Im talking to you Alan Pardew...I STILL REMEMBER! The Arsenal 'World' XI were: Jens Lehmann (Germany); Emmanuel Eboue (Ivory Coast), Johan Djourou (Switzerland), Justin Hoyte (England), William Gallas (France); Tomas Rosicky (Czech Republic), Gilberto (Brazil), Cesc Fabregas (Spain), Alexander Hleb (Belarus); Emmanuel Adebayor (Togo) and Robin van Persie (Holland).

Despite what everybody has been saying, Willian Gallas has said he doesnt mind playing left-back until Clichy comes back from injury. He also said that he used the World Cup to show everyone how good a central defender he was, and he did. France couldnt have gotten to the finals without him.

Just for those of you who didnt know this, Arsene Wenger tried to sign Michael Carrick a few seasons ago when Vieira was set to leave for Real Madrid. Well, Wenger has finally talked about it, and says that if he had managed to get Carrick, he would have ruined Cesc's chances of playing.

Now to shorter news:

Van Persie says he didnt dive.
Arsenal are not for sale.
