"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!"
-Emmanuel Adebayor

I wish Arsenal played like girls

Seriously, the Arsenal Women's team beat Bristol Academy 6-0 leaving our team on 9 points and a 23-0 record! Thats right, 23 goals in 3 matches and you thought Chelsea were dominant last season.

Well, i guess Gilberto was being politically correct when he said we will miss Cole and Reyes. And he even backed up Cole by saying that he doesnt think Cole said all the stuff in the papers leading up to the transfer. I guess he is saying this just incase Real realise Reyes is crap and dont sign him.

Baptista has revealed that Arsenal has the option of signing him on a 4-year deal if he impresses Wenger during his season-long-loan. I would like to take this time to say sorry to Baptista for saying he was overrated, apparently, after doing more research, he actually scored 8 goals in the few matches Real gave him last season. Reyes played almost all our matches and scored 6. Ohh, and he turned down Sp*rs too!

Arsene Wenger revealed that he was looking into signing Bellamy while he was at Rovers but changed his mind because he thought we had too many strikers. I agree.

Thierry has said that the pain of losing the World Cup finals was far less compared to the pain of losing the Champions League finals as losing through a penalty-shootout is far less painful than losing through bad refereeing. Again, I agree. Ive given it alot of thought and I realised that at the end of last season, we could have had Henry or The Champions League title, not both. And I think we came out with the right prize. The Champions League title is probably the dream of every Arsenal fan, but whats the use of winning it, losing your best striker and probably finish mid-table the following season.

Arsene Wenger says that international football is getting boring and very one-sided. During the weekend we saw scores like England 5-0 Andorra, Georgia 0-3 France, Spain 4-0 Liechtenstein and Slovakia 6-1 Cyprus. Arsene says that the increase in nations taking part has caused congestion in international matches. Its result, as he says, the value of playing for your country has dropped. Clubs dont longer rate players based on the performance at international level.

By the way, Arsenal bagged a nifty 2mil pounds from the Brazil-Argentina match that the brazilians won 3-0. Batista came on as a substitute and looked lively.

There are hardly any news floating about after the transfer window. We can expect alot more once we play our next match.
