Now that the transfer window is shut and it’s the interlul, it’s all pretty quiet.
Olivier Giroud scored during France’s 3-1 win against Italy on Thursday night; he’s now scored 21 goals for his country – more than Manchester United legend, Eric Cantona who scored 20.
In other news, the Arsenal Foundation is set to donate £1m of the proceedings from the Arsenal Legends’ match on Saturday to building new football pitches across the world; new striker Lucas traveled back to Deportivo to say goodbye and said some rather lovely things about Arsenal; Arsene Wenger explained the uncomfortable position Thierry Henry had been in at London Colney while trying to juggle punditry and coaching and the boss, Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho all appeared in Nyon to speak about scrapping extra time.
This wasn’t the only reason they were all there obviously but it’s probably the only time they have all agreed on something.
Oh, and now that we’ve signed Shkodran Mustafi, reports say Arsenal reckon that Mesut Ozil will extend his contract with us.
