Arsenal link roundup for Thursday, September 23

New, comments

Halfway in between Arsenal's victory at Tottenham Hotspur and the home match against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, and here are the links:

Abou Diaby should return for the West Brom match, but Tomas Rosicky is a doubt; Cesc Fabregas and Thomas Vermaelen are due back probably for the Chelsea match on October 3.

From the official site: Henri Lansbury talks about his first senior goal for Arsenal, Arsène Wenger dedicated the match on Tuesday to the memory of Jack Chester, who was the representative of the Teenage Cancer Trust charity for Arsenal, good news for Kieran Gibbs and Arsenal: his injured foot is not broken; it is only a bruise, and he should be back in a couple of weeks; somehow Rosicky didn't realize that Wenger was banned from the touchline.  He must have really been concentrating.  The Czech also gives his opinion about Jack Wilshere.  Also: Wenger addresses the Wojciech Szczesny complaint.

7AM Kickoff gives his perspective on the win, including his view on the accusation that Nasri dove for the first penalty.

A Cultured Left Foot talks about Wenger's views on his long-term future.

The Guardian reports that Wenger is surprised by Tony Pulis and Sam Allardyce's remarks.  Maybe they misunderstood what he said (not that anyone in the press would know anything about why that might be).  Also in the same paper: Mexico has banned Carlos Vela from international play for six months because he threw a party in the team hotel.  Ah, youth.  It's a blow for the young man, but on the other hand, at least he won't fly 12,000 miles for a friendly in the near future.

Tony at Untold Arsenal gives his take on Harry Redknapp's postgame remarks.

Have a good afternoon, everyone.
