Why Arsenal SHOULD start Ozil against Stoke

Mesut Ozil should start for Arsenal if fit by Sam P

There was an article on this website the other day that suggested that it was too risky for Arsenal to throw Mesut Ozil straighht back into the starting line-up for the visit of the tough tackling and physically aggressive Stoke City tomorrow, even if the German international is fit enough to start.

Mark Hughes – Arsenal never gave up on Schwarzer

The Fulham boss Mark Schwarzer is preparing his side to face Arsenal this weekend, and funnily enough the club has decided at this moment to announce that they have persuaded their Aussie keeper Mark Schwarzer to sign a new and improved contract.
