  2. A few thoughts from the new manager

    I'm happy to be announced as the new manager of Arsenal Football Club and I hope to be able to bring this magnificent club back to winning trophies. I know some fans will be unhappy at the appointment of someone with little experience such as myself but I feel that I have the ability to be able to deliver what I say. I hope to be able to attract big names to be able to add to a brilliant squad of players that are capable of winning trophies which is what the fans want

  3. August 2012 Transfers

    Demba Ba - Good goalscorer which is something I felt that lacking by Arsenal.

    Jack Butland - Signed to challenge Szczesny for the first team spot. Always good to have two good goalkeepers.

    Marouane Fellaini - Great midfielder still quite young so will hopefully be an asset to the team for the next 8-10 years

    Yann M'vila - Young defensive midfielder, hopefully make the team better defensively

    Marcel Schmelzer - Improve the left back position. Was between him and Baines but being younger and cheaper went with this option.

    Zambrotta - Provide some experience to the back four plus provide cover when needed. Hope to train him as a coach soon.

    Bakkali, Adryan and Shaw - all for the future. Hopefully become important part of the team in the next 3-5 seasons

    good signings

  5. Preseason

    Happy with pre-season over all with some decent results and majority of the fit players getting some game time. At the start with the 0-0 draw with the reserves I thought what have I let myself in for then it started to pick up once match fitness improved and the new signings started playing. This ended up with 4 wins and a draw.

  7. August

    Everton (Away)
    D 0-0
    Not the best way to start the season but we didn’t lose which is a good thing.

    West Bromwich Albion (Home)
    W 2-0
    First three points of the season came courtesy of Demba Ba’s first two league goals of the season.

  8. 10M for Luke Shaw undeveloped is too hefty for me,

    It's £2.5 million upfront with the rest add ons like first international appearance and so many league appearances so hopefully won't be for a bit before that has to be paid

    Ah I see, that makes it seem a good deal then.
