'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Gunners Name Squad

In accordance with Premier League legislation, all clubs have until midnight tonight to submit their 25 man squads for the season. At least eight of the 25 must qualify as 'homegrown.' Premier League rules list homegrown players as 'a player who, irrespective of nationality or age, has been registered with any club affiliated to the Football Association or the Football Association of Wales for a period, continuous or not, of three entire seasons or 36 months prior to his 21st birthday (or the
end of the Season during which he turns 21).' Clubs can name an unlimited amount of players under 21 (born after 1 January 1991). Changes are permitted again in the January transfer window.

Arsenal's list submitted to the Premier League reads as follows:

23 squad players (N= Not homegrown, H= Homegrown)


1 Arshavin, Andrey (N)
2 Arteta, Mikel (N)
3 Cazorla, Santiago (N)
4 Chamakh, Maroaune (N)
5 Clarindo Dos Santos, Andre (N)
6 Diaby, Vassiriki Abou (N)
7 Djourou, Johan (H)
8 Fabianski, Lukasz (N)
9 Gervinho (N)
10 Gibbs, Kieran (H)
11 Giroud, Olivier (N)
12 Koscielny, Laurent (N)
13 Mannone, Vito (H)
14 Mertesacker, Per (N)
15 Podolski, Lukas (N)
16 Ramsey, Aaron (H)
17 Rosicky, Tomas (N)
18 Sagna, Bacary (N)
19 Squillaci, Sebastien(N)
20 Szczesny, Wojciech (H)
21 Vermaelen, Thomas (N)
22 Walcott, Theo (H)
23 Eastmond, Craig (H)

Arsenal also named their Champions League squad in accordance with UEFA rules. UEFA's rules are similar and call for a 17 man 'A' List followed by a 'B' List which can include pretty much anyone in the squad under the age of 21. Serge Gnabry is a notable inclusion on the 'A' List (he doesn't qualify for the 'B' because he hasn't yet been at Arsenal or in England for 3 years). The 'B' list won't include Craig Eastmond or Sanchez Watt, both of whom have already turned 21 and are therefore not elligible.

The A list submitted to UEFA was as follows:

1.Wojciech Szczesny
2.Abou Diaby
3.Bacary Sagna
4.Per Mertesacker
5.Thomas Vermaelen
6.Laurent Koscielny
7.Tomas Rosicky
8.Mikel Arteta
9.Lukas Podolski
11.Andre Santos
12.Olivier Giroud
14.Theo Walcott
15.Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
16.Aaron Ramsey
18.Sebastien Squillaci
19.Santi Cazorla
20.Johan Djourou
21.Lukas Fabianski
23.Andrey Arshavin
24.Vito Mannone
25.Carl Jenkinson
27.Gervinho
28.Kieran Gibbs
29.Marouane Chamakh
47.Serge Gnabry.

The 'B' list, yet to be published, will almost certainly include Jack Wilshere, Francis Coquelin and Emmanuel Frimpong amongst a raft f youngsters.

Well, at least Arshavin is listed. Where is all the talk about Arsenal letting him go on a free coming from?
