Good afternoon, everyone. Here's a quick roundup of some Arsenal commentary from around the interwebs:
Arsène Wenger says that his only new injury concern is Abou Diaby, who will miss around three weeks with a calf strain.
A Cultured Left Foot sees reasons to be positive, despite the draw yesterday:
Even so, the year ends with Arsenal in third, two points off the top having played a game less than Manchester City but one more than United. It is a good position to be in but 2011 needs to see a consistent run put together if the promise is to materialise into reward.
Similarly, Arseblog feels that Arsenal can emerge from the holiday period in good shape:
What’s important is that we react. We’ve got the very same Birmingham away on New Year’s Day, followed by Man City on Wednesday. Two wins and we come out of the Christmas period with 10 points from 12, which I think many would have taken beforehand. I think many people would have taken 4 from 6 from the Chelsea and Wigan fixtures too.
Cesc Fabregas asks for more consistency in refereeing decisions, which feels a bit like asking for the rain to stop, or for time to reverse.
According to John Cross in the Mirror, Nicklas Bendtner is happy to fight for his place for now, and does not plan on going anywhere soon.
And finally, one of my favorite goals from last season, and let's hope that he gets back to this: Ramsey.
