Chelsea want to buy Rooney but haven't done so yet, Manchester United want to make sure they do not fall behind Manchester City but are yet to make any serious progress. This tells me that there is more to it than just wanting to get players signed. There seems to be a method to some of the madness, not all but some. The amount of people stating as fact that Arsenal will NOT sign any players this summer. 'Whenga and Gazidis are taking us for mugs, they are pocketing d cash for Stan and Whenga takes the profits home from the money we do not spend' or such nonsense. (Surely they do know that is nonsense right?)

Cesc Fabregas. I say overall game because Cesc's defence splitting passes sent shivers down my spine, but that aside, Santi is far more fun to watch. The way he gets out of tight spaces with his little speedy feet is a sight to behold. Does anybody look more graceful when they spray the ball across the pitch with a pass? It looks even more enjoyable when it is done with his 'weaker' foot.

In other news Jose Mourinho has spoken of his new love affair and respect with Arsene Wenger since he has left the Premier League. I did wonder why he danced around the chance to put the boot into Arsene and Arsenal during his first press conference back. One journo fed him a loaded question about Arsenal not winning a trophy during his time away but he declined the invitation when he previous he would have jumped all over us before the question was even asked. It is all well and good now, but the true test will be when the season kicks off and if we manage to be in and around them. Hopefully above them, and in fact everyone else. That would be nice.

Personally I would have preferred we spent £40m+ on another striker. Who? I do not know, honestly I couldn't tell you but I disagree with those who say, why spend £40m on Suarez when we could offer that for Higuain. They are not like for like players, they have different skill sets, they give the team different strengths. The idea of Higuain tucking away chances in the penalty area got me excited

We are being linked with Brazilian wonderkid Bernard and I think we should be signing him for his name itself. I gets the feeling that there is something in this. It follows a familiar pattern of an Arsenal signing. Being linked with many players in the press for a while, usually really obvious names like Scott Dann or Chris Samba. But then whispers to come out from a source in that players country that a deal is close. Arsene then twists the question about the interest. Like 'that report is not

It was no surprise to see Ryo Miyachi start the game back in his home land and I thought he had started brightly. Pressed with purpose and looked positive in possession. Some of his decisions were not always correct and his passing was sometimes behind his intended target but the tools are there. Giroud played a ball to Walcott but really should have looked left to Ramsey, nevertheless the ball was handled in the box and Arteta kindly gave Ryo a chance to score in his country. To be honest I thought Ryo would miss his spot kick but I couldn't have been anymore wrong. Powerfully driven and right into the corner giving the keeper no chance.

    So let me stop reminiscing of days gone by and let me focus on our Welsh wonder. Let me start off by saying that I think it is quite obvious that Aaron Ramsey is better in central midfield. His partnership with Mesut Özil, his running from deep and his underrated ball winning ability makes him a ...Read more
