Wenger keen on £5m Basel ace & The perfect signings for Arsenal – Best of AFC

A first defeat last Saturday, at the hands of their fierce London rivals, appeared to signal the end of an extended honeymoon period for the Gunners. Normal service was resumed at the back as defensive errors from Laurent Koscielny and goalkeeper Vito Mannone contributed to their first loss of the new campaign. But in contrast to years gone by Arsene Wenger’s men responded in a surprisingly positive fashion chalking up an impressive mid-week victory in the Champions League proving there is a real strength of character and resolve in the Emirates Stadium dressing room this season. That being said it’s unlikely Wenger will allow his squad to get ahead of themselves despite their solid, if unspectacular start to the new term and will be hammering home the importance of staying grounded ahead of the international break.

This week on FFC is Theo Walcott right or wrong to demand an improved contract from the Gunners and which highly-rated Austrian international is Wenger chasing?

Quote of the Week


“Jack needs a few games, progressive build-up to get his body used again to competition, to shocks, to fights, but he is doing extremely well, the situation looks very good. We have to be cautious, not crazy, because of his talent you are always pushed in a situation where you would like to rush him back, and we have to resist that. The next match should be next week and he is working very hard. The body is like that, when you have been out of competition for 14 months it takes a long time to find your sharpness back. You cannot rush it.” Arsene Wenger insists he won’t rush Jack Wilshere back into the first team fold
