Good afternoon. Here are your Arsenal links for today:
- The anti-anti-Theo Walcott backlash in the mainstream press has been pretty refreshing. The Telegraph in particular had a lot to say about it.
- Tomas Rosicky tells Theo Walcott to ignore the press and just enjoy playing the game.
- A Cultured Left Foot talks about Fabio Capello getting the national team selection process right with regards to Jack Wilshere.
- Arsenal Station has written about Rosicky's first two games this season, and how a healthy Tommy can be a really dangerous attacking force.
- Arsène Wenger puts the high scores in the Premier League down to teams not having learned fear yet and to varying levels of fitness at the season's start.
- Denilson is available for Blackburn, according to the manager, and Cesc Fabregas and Robin van Persie are both fully available to start.
- Wenger talks about the difference between physical play and simple rule-breaking.
- And finally, on the subject of free kicks: Thierry Henry (with a sneaky little screen from Dennis Bergkamp, maybe?) owns Charlton.
More tomorrow: a review of the Champions League draw and a preview of Blackburn. Enjoy your Thursdays, everyone.
