Arsenal have had a slow week, clearly, as international football has taken center stage, such as it is.  There are a few things of note happening, however, including today's reserves league match, which Arsenal lost to Wigan by a final of 2-1.  Jens Lehmann played in the match along with striker Jeremie Aliadiere, and Young Guns described the action in their match report.

Lehmann apparently struggled a bit in his first competitive match in a while, as one might expect.  The question of whether this is a worrying sign for Arsenal is probably moot, as Manuel Almunia will continue to start in goal for the Gunners, but hopefully Lehmann can continue to shake off the rust.

There are some other tidbits out on the internet very much worth checking out at the moment, as well:
