"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 Youngster Wins YPOTM/ Ade Available

Good news ahead of our clash against West Ham, Manu Adebayor has a 90% chance of returning after he picked up an injury in the Carling Cup tie against West Brom, a match we won 2-0 thanks to Jeremie Aliadiere. Adebayor was originally expected to be out for up to 3 weeks but has had a fast recovery. Bad news though is that Eboue and Ljungberg are still short of match fitness.

Rosicky says that the sitter he missed against CSKA was the worst of his career. I feel sad for him though because eventhough he missed that chance, all our attacking players missed chances too. The press have made it seem like he was the cause Arsenal didnt win.

Arsene Wenger praised Nigel Reo-Coker's footballing ability but denies making a bid that supposedly unsettled the player in the early weeks of the season. Sir Wenger said: "I like Reo-Coker but we never made a bid to West Ham for him," Wenger praised him for his performance against us last year at Highbury that will be remembered for the day Sol Campbell walked out on the club that gave him silverware that he never got from 'others'.

Anthony Stokes who is currently on loan at Falkirk has won the SPL's Young Player of The Year award. He said that he doesnt mind extending his current loan deal that keeps him at Falkirk until January if Arsenal decide that they do not need his services for the moment.

Finally, Arsenal have apparently given a trial to Chinese youngster, Mao Jianqing. Mao had a trial with Feyenoord in 2003 but failed to impress the Dutch side enough to earn a permanent contract.
