Arsenal link roundup for Sunday, September 12

Good morning.  Here are the Arsenal links following on a 4-1 drubbing of Bolton yesterday:

  • A Cultured Left Foot and Arseblog offer their reviews of the match.  Arseblog in particular does not have a lot of positive things to say about twentysomething referee Stuart Atwell (he of the gifted Reading Ghost Goal).
  • The Guardian reports that Arsène Wenger is upset by Stuart Pearce dropping Jack Wilshere from the U-21 squad after being arrested last week.  Because no other England midfielders have ever taken "their eye of the ball", Stuart.  Never happens.  Not even when they're 27 or so, much less 20.  Never.
  • Young Guns offers up a match report on the Academy team's 1-0 loss to Bristol City.
  • 7AM Kickoff writes about the experience of live-blogging the Bolton match from remotest Washington state.
  • Arsène Wenger states that the new UEFA financial rules coming into play in 2012 will work in Arsenal's favor, because the club doesn't spend money that it doesn't earn.
  • The Backwards Gooner (an excellent, excellent new tactical blog) talks about what Marouane Chamakh brings to the team.  Great signing so far, the Moroccan.
  • And finally, because he scored yesterday, here's another goal from Carlos Vela.  The look on Chris Kirkland's face at roughly 23 seconds is priceless, the poor guy.

Have a good Sunday, everyone.
