Wenger Steps Down:

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has stepped down due admitting having affairs with severl of the players wives and girlfriends. Samir Nasri had told us "I'm disgracied. What kind of manager does this to his players? Hope we get a manger that knows how to treat his players with respect?" Cesc Fabregas said " I'm so angry. If we don't get a manager that knows how to treat his players, I can see the club losing many of their key players in the transfer window."

Graham Comes In:


George Graham has been anounced as the new manager of Arsenal FC. Upon arrival he had said " I will be treating my players with respect unlike Arsene in his last 2 weeks at the club and buying players that will hopefully bring glory to the club this season."

7th July 2010
My 1st day, I pulled up outside London Colney to meet up with Pat Rice. I asked him to start the training session while I sort out a few things. I opened up a word document on my laptop to sort out my squad. The 1st thing I sorted out was the current starting 11. The formation I'm going to use is a 4-4-2 Diamond. This is the line up that I am going to have when fully fit.
Almunia
Sagna---Koscielny---Vermaelen---Clichy
Fabregas
Walcott-------------------------------Arshavin
Nasri
Van Persie---Chamakh
So I was looking for a few improvements. A goalkeeper, a right midfielder and a striker.
My Shortlist In:
Sebastien Frey
Brad Friedel
Sunny
Landon Donavon
Neymar
Ricky van Wolfswinkel

My Shortlist Out:
Manuel Almunia
Lukasz Fabianski
James Shea
Tomas Rosicky
Oguzhan Ozyakup

I bought in 8 players in the summer transfer window. Only 3 of them will go straight in to my starting 11.

Giuseppe was bought in for a fee of £27m from Villarreal. He will be put straight into the starting 11.

Graham Blasts Useless International Friendlies:
Following Andrey Arshavin suffering a torn calf muscle which has ruled him out for 3 months, Arsenal manager George Graham has blasted the international friendlies. "What is the point of playing useless international games during the season, I can understand playing key players in competive internatinal games through."
