Alexis Sanchez confirmed on Arsenal.com, cue body popping. Do people still body pop? Anyway I would like to congratulate those involved in making this happen. If you are the type of person to get frothing mad about praising our own staff (there are people like that out there you know) then I suggest clicking away now because this is not for you.

A lot of folk have already made definitive judgements on Debechy. Some suggest he isn't Arsenal quality or that he is a defensive liability so I would urge you to wait until you've seen his performances for Arsenal rather than Newcastle. He will be playing with better players under a better coach so his performances could rise along with the quality of those around him. While we might not have a player as capable defensively as our former number three, it will be nice to have a player who doesn't look like he is about to freeze when he receives the ball towards the opposition penalty area. I hope Giroud has been telling him to work on his delivery when pre season starts.

From what I have read to date I am guessing that should he sign for us we will have plenty moments of celebrating his attacking play and scratching our heads at his defensive play, not because he is an awful defender but because we have taken Sagna's defensive quality for granted for a long time now. But he need not worry and needn't should you. He has big Per Mertesacker to his left who will be guiding him through training and match days. He is 21 years of age and has plenty of scope to learn the Arsenal way. It is hard to not be excited about his offensive potential though. With Theo Walcott darting inside to join Giroud's lay offs, left backs will be tracking Theo's runs only to find the steam train that is Aurier skipping past his man in acres of space on the right but

So when Arsène spoke about his new contract for the first time he was asked about the summer and he went off on one a little about the importance of adding to the squad in June - July. Ok maybe not going off on one but for Arsène to give that much away without much prompting it made me think he has a plan. But that is not it, Ivan Gazidis was recently talking to fans at one of those fans cosy chit chatting sessions and he spoke about Arsenal being in deep conversations with clubs at the moment and I'm pretty sure he said something off record about 'a big one'  I don't think he was talking about Oliver Giroud in the showers either.

Mario Balotelli has been untamed by pretty much every manager that he has come across. Both on the pitch and off the pitch he has let his clubs down time and time again. Before the argument enters your mind I would just like to say that I don't think that the Suarez/van Persie comparison is valid. Firstly Luis Suarez and Robin van Persie are players who are fighters who would do anything to win. Sometimes that spills over into anger and frustration. I have to admit to not being a regular viewer of Mario and his Balotelli ways so maybe I am not too qualified to make my next point but someone who's footballing knowledge I trust has watched him many times last season and said that he strolls around the

    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
