    The Giroud injury isn't as absurd as it may seem. We already knew he wasn't match fit clearly from the 2 games beforehand. I'm sure Wenger put Giroud on in desperation for the 2-0 defeat even though he was half fit so no surprises that he's injured.


    As far as Manolas goes, we may have never even targeted him and it could have been the usual paper gossip. But Roma were just linked with him and have already signed him for 10 million so he's out of question now. Arsene really needs to pick up, which he won't. Don't think the CL game is going to mean we'll get some world star player remotely close the likes of Ozil or Sanchez. If Carvalho was going to happen it would have happened by now so expect a trolley dash....

    a little bit concerned for arsenal at the moment..

    Guess we will just have to see how things go on wednesday, but if we end the transfer window without a new CF and CDM, then I will be very dissapointed in wenger..

    That, and then a bad season would be enough to turn me to a wenger-out fan by next may, as it would be clear by then that his message of pushing forward after years of struggling, and finaly a trophy win, was just rubbish.

    We have actually made a decent start to the season (a win tomorrow would make it more so). 4 pts from two games, one of which was Everton away isn't bad. Yet still, you can sense that it will get worse. Our squad looks thin and I don't feel the cohesion and spirit that Wenger talks about. Sometimes I feel Wenger just throws 11 men out there and hopes for the best. After a good start to the window the hope was that Wenger would wrap it all up by the beginning of the season; that hasn't happened but he still has a few days yet to at least buy two or three players. If not, it's gonna be a really draining and ultimately sad season. Again.

    If Giroud rumours are true, kinda funny as only an Arsenal player can break his foot from the ball hitting it.

    And we're in massive trouble unless we get a striker in.

    After watching the replay, Distin catches Oli on the follow through after clearing it. **** awful luck though!

    Who plays up top tomorrow? Giroud and Sanogo out. I'd say Campbell with Sanchez on right, Cazorla on left and Ozil in the middle. Wilshere and Flamini in the middle of the park. I wanna see Chamberlain start but I don't think it'll happen.

    I don't want Chambo to start he's been equally as invisible as Cazorla really. He's still quite raw but has delivered nothing where as Cazorla might play in a key pass


    Hoping Joel gets a shot up top. I agree with your set up really

    I'm really intrigued what Wenger will do tomorrow more than anything. Massive game, to be without a recognised striker means it's going to make it a lot harder. Maybe Podolski to stay and play there for the time being even though he's not very good in that position?

    Also Wenger is stingy enough as it is, is he really going to buy just for the sake of an injury? All you guys need now is an injury to Ramsey and i can't see where your goals are coming from.

    Afobe seems to get loaned to at least 2 teams per season and never does anything. Off the top of my head he's been to Reading, Yeovil, Huddersfield, Sheffield Wednesday and some other London club (Charlton?) and barely managed to score a goal.

    Is there a specific reason he's still on the books at Arsenal?
    He's been doing pretty well at MK Dons this season, scored the winner against Wimbledon in the Cap 1 cup and he's got about 3 league goals so far I think

    wenger dismisses reports that podolski will leave..

    Really worried that this is his answer to the lack of strikers, instead of buying someone new..

    typing on TSR, whilst I wait on the phone to talk to my gas company..

    But serriously, no one has any positive reason to phone a gas company, so why the hell do they play the most depressing music ever?

    I mean ive been waiting 10 minutes, and each song could be the title tune to any oscar-winning tear fest..

    Its like they just know, and just want to say

    'Yeah *****.. we know your not going to enjoy this, so we are just going to crush you down even more before you talk to us..'

    (back to football)

    Edit:

    'If I could.. then I would, Il go wherever you will go... way up high, or down low, Il go whereever you will go...'

    :bawling:

    Edit Edit:

    I take it back.. Proper tune came on.. started dancing.. wife walks past room, joins in.. All is good, until the lady answers the phone and I have to stop myself from laughing..

    Now to pay my gas bill.

    (anyone here who is 18-19 or under.. you suck, just because I am very jealous.. I miss that time, when my biggest weekly expense was food, and cheap alcohol)

    yeah.. just moved into a new flat, so needed to let them know its me living there and such..

    Nothing interesting, but something that I wish did not have to take 1 hour, to do (52 minutes waiting)

    Anyway.. back to football, feeling really pesimistic about arsenals season today, still needing 3 signings for me, and less then a week of the window left. Not good.

    Oh I see, great.

    I don't like the games Wenger is playing man, start of the window we went all out! It was crazy man, a signing every few days. It all started with Sanchez and it was like bang! Now believe it or not we're short in at least 2 positions, there's limited availability out there for the right price with less than a week to go. I can't even predict what's going to happen at this point now.
