Arsenal closed the gap on the top four with a thoroughly professional performance at the Stadium of Light. Arsene Wenger stated this week that the next seven days will define their season and the Gunners have certainly got off to the perfect start. They travel to the San Siro in midweek to face AC Milan in what will be Thierry Henry’s last game for Arsenal since his return to North London. Arsene Wenger was hoping to keep the Frenchman longer, with the up and coming derby at the end of the month, but the Red Bulls wanted him back in New York.
This week at FFC we have seen a mixed bag of articles that include; the rise of Oxlade-Chamberlain; Frimpong’s new found spare time, while Spanish tax laws may play into Premier League club’s hands.
