Football is a funny thing and can do strange things at times, take last season in the Premier League as a prime example. One of the odd little quirks in the game is how most clubs tend to have what we call bogey teams and Arsenal are no different.
A book is apparently being written by Rob Beasley on Jose Mourinho at present, and some of the Arsenal linked reports are rather outrageous.
Lucas Perez joined Arsenal this summer from Deportivo La Coruna, but their manager Arsene Wenger seems has concerns about him.
The Spanish striker started in the midweek 4-0 win over Nottingham Forest, and bagged his first two goals for the club during the match.
Nicklas Bendtner is set to take on former club Arsenal tonight in the third round of the League Cup, and manager Arsene Wenger has been discussing his recent move.
Big bucks agent Mino Raiola claims that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is scared to spend big money.

We are always hearing a lot about character in the football world, but too often in the past it has been the lack of character in the Arsenal team that has been the subject of discussion for the football media.

Well speed is probably a bad word to use for Giroud but you know what I mean.
