Arsenal link roundup for Sunday, February 6

Good afternoon, everyone.  This weekend in the Premier League is turning out to be really something, isn't it?  Here are your Arsenal links for today:

Arseblog is as upset as everyone else about what happened at St. James', but he's equally worried about going forward:

So how we react to this is absolutely crucial. What I would say to them, if I were the manager, is that that yesterday was a freak (I know, despite the similar incidents in recent seasons). It’s never happened before and is unlikely to ever happen again. We’ve made ourselves a horrible page in the record books but we just cannot dwell on it. If we let yesterday get in on us then I think we’ll be in serious trouble.

A Cultured Left Foot offers up his thoughts.

Guus Hiddink talks about his memories of Robin van Persie as a youngster, versus how he sees him now on Arsenal.

Fabio Capello sees Jack Wilshere as the Claude Makelele of the England squad going forward.  Er, hopefully he didn't see the second half against Newcastle yesterday, then.

Young Guns offers up his loanee report, with this wonderful little nugget about Ryo Miyaichi:

Ryo Miyaichi played the full 90 minutes on his debut as Feyenoord drew 1-1 with Vitesse Arnhem. Miyaichi started on the left of a front three and had a selection of good chances to open his account in an impressive debut. The youngster showed lots of flair and won a free-kick in the second half which resulted in Castaignos scoring.

And finally, here's a little clip about Steve Bould.
