Yes - that would be the one rejected by Real and cleared out in the summer sales after 'arry was conned into thinking someone else had offered £18m for him.

It's exactly the same Arsenal squad we would have put forward even if the new rules hadn't been put in place. Most PL teams in the recent past will only use something like 26-28 players over a normal season and there'll always have been a handful of youngsters amongst those.

I think Arsene has just made a mockery of the new squad rule.None of the 20 selected are English. And the thinks the new squad rule is gonna help English football??....hahaha....absolute mockery of the new rule by Arsene

Did Somebody Van der Vaart? No......Just the lingering smell of spurs in the West hame away changing room then.

'Cesc Fabregas, Johan Djourou, Niklas Bendtner, Alexandre Song, Vito Mannone, and Perka Denilson - Do these names sound home grown to you?' was a post a Spurs supporting friend of mine put up on facebook/ twitter today. All i seem to be doing is arguing with people about Arsenal at the moment! lol!
