The Arsenal Paper Round: Wednesday February 24


Arsenal v Standard de Liege, originally uploaded by toksuede.

This morning dear reader, is when Arsenal news is in short supply. It doesn't help there is no game until we face Stoke on Saturday tea-time.

There is more Theo Walcott stuff around today.

In the Sun he talks about how being injured this season has led to this being his "most frustrating season of my career".

He said:

"It has been so frustrating getting injured, coming back, approaching full
fitness and then picking up another injury.

"I have lost count of the number of
times it has happened and now I am just trying to get back to my best.

"I am concentrating on Arsenal. But if I stay fit, hopefully I will have a chance of
getting on the plane to South Africa."


There is also an extended piece in The Independent which goes on further and Walcott says he still has time to come good saying: "Thierry Henry did not really come through until he was 23"


Oliver Holt in his Daily Mirror column prises Theo Walcott and Emmanuel Eboue work in the community, as Arsenal celebrate 25 years of Arsenal in the community.

He says:

"They might not have attracted any headlines but what they did was a reminder
that there is plenty for football to be proud of, too."



The only other news this morning is a story in the Daily Mirror about there being "no rift" between Spain coach Vicente del Bosque and Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez.

Towards the end of the piece the Spain manager talks about Cesc Fabregas and speculation linking him with a move away from Arsenal.

He says:

"I just hope that nothing happens during the World Cup because we want him to
concentrate on playing and not a transfer."


That's your lot. The only thing to add is with Manchester United winning last night, the gap between us and them is back to five points. We really have to go to Stoke on Saturday and win.
