Arsenal link roundup for Thursday, December 2

Good morning.  Everyone recovered from the FIFA World Cup bids announcements?  Want some Arsenal stuff to take the mind off of it?  Okay, then.

Here are reports on the Wigan match from A Cultured Left Foot, Arseblog, and 7AM Kickoff.

Larsenalfc (aka BeltransMole) talks about the 4-2-4 that Arsenal employed versus the Latics on Tuesday:

One characteristic of the front four that played yesterday is that they all have excellent movement, and yesterday rotated between the front four positions superbly.

Arsenal Column agrees, and speculates about the reasons that four strikers were used:

However, the problem was, that all four strikers in question were lacking match fitness and/or match sharpness and somehow the manager needed to find a way to accommodate the quartet in his starting line-up. Robin van Persie’s return was arguably of the greatest urgency with key matches against Manchester United and Chelsea coming up but Wenger knows how delicate his star forward is.

Arsène Wenger says on the official site that Samir Nasri picked up a slight knock on his knee against Wigan, but that he should be able to go on Saturday.

Arseblog speculates that the goalkeeping jobs are down to Lukasz Fabianski and Wojciech Szczesny for the near and long-term futures.

7AM Kickoff likes Conan the Barbarian.  He also has some thoughts about the Carling Cup and Arsenal's chances.

Going back a little further: Arsenal Column breaks down Andrei Arshavin's play against Aston Villa at the weekend.

Easy, Denilson.

And finally, here's a Dennis Bergkamp deep cut.  And look who comes over to congratulate him at 0:16--is that Marc Overmars?

Have a good day, everyone.
