Yesterday morning we were greeted with these words from Alex Hleb’s agent:
“Alexander is preparing to make one of the most important moves of his life””He is leaving Arsenal even though they want to offer him a new long-term contract and better conditions. Only time will tell if leaving is the right decision, but there’s no way back now. Everything will be cleared up in the next two weeks.”
As we all wondered whether he would do a Webster, Arsene has hit back:
“It is not as simple as it looks, this Webster clause, you can’t just come in next day and buy out, there is no rule that says that.
“You should not forget what clubs can do, you have to first go to a Fifa tribunal and if you don’t agree with Fifa, you have to go to Acas. It takes a lot of months.
“You can be banned for the whole period if it’s not done in a proper way.”
He also said here:
“I believe 98 per cent of this squad will be here next season. And the two per cent have already gone.”
Well, Wenger has to be optimistic, it must have been a big blow to lose Flamini, but I am sure that we will find players to fill the gap, he’s after a midfielder and a defender, I’m not sure who, but people writing us off will only make us stronger to be honest with you.
These people will see what happens next season, and so will we!

am an ardent asenal fan based in africa Uganda,
we need strong strikers, and the profesor need to let our strikers shoot outside the box,
secondly, change our captain from william Glas to toure, then we need atleast one defender who is abit taller than toure and william as we concided more goals because of the hight problems

I am a young Arsenal fan based in Nigeria, we need a strong striker like Santa Cruz, Fednando Torres, Obafemi Martins and many others who has the ability to score from outside the box.
And a strong left wing foward to support Rosicky.
a center midfieder to replace Flamini.
I am a reknown outstanding Arsenal fan who likes seeing the team emerging victorious, it is true our ministry of defence is weak but we can not fully blame the defenders when our strikers are so wasteful, extravagant, luxerious and lazy to an extent that the top striker Adebayor takes 12 chances to score a goal as compared to Torres. Therefore there need for more pressure and competition on the striking line as Edwardo is back, Arshavin, Adebayor, Persie, Bendtner, Walcott and Vela for every one to look for goals on the pitch as if a needle in the cupboard. I have liked you.
