Wenger says Wilshere a "doubt" for Euros

This pretty much means that Wenger won't be bringing Wilshere back this season at all. I think we pretty much had a gut feeling about that though. Without playing for a whole year, I really doubt that even under Capello, he would have chosen him for Euro's no matter how good he is, you need that full match fitness before hand, and Wilshere hasn't had any in eight months. If whoever manages England here soon though picks Wilshere for the squad, I'm going to be extremely pissed, and I don't think I'll be the only one...

Stan Kronke revealed as a finalist for LA Dodgers purchase

Lost out to a buying group that consists of many different people, including Magic Johnson. The winning bid was announced to be $2 billion, a record amount for any North American franchise. So what does this have to do with Arsenal? Well, it has not only to do with Arsenal, but any of Silent Stan's sporting assets. I get the feeling that he only views Arsenal as a pawnable item, looking to get some sort of profit off of it before it's sold off once again... Remember, he's a real estate mogul, and whats the primary objective of a real estate mogul? Breaking a profit...

More news on our new kits for next season

Reportedly, those black bands on our sleeves and the collar are actually a navy blue. Also, the report out there is that our away kit is going to be primarily black. There's no pictures of the away kits so far, but odds are great that this will be the home kit for next year, kind of like last year and the year before.

Federal authorities shut down 16 sports streaming websites

Bad news for us who don't subscribe to Arsenal Player, FSC, etc. Being a college kid, it's not like I have the money lying around to pay $100+ dollars for a subscription so this really hurts any chance I have of viewing Arsenal games unless they're on ESPN3 (like this weekend, luckily). While a lot of people are against piracy (including myself, I even purchase all of my music legally), there has to be an adequate solution to being able to view out of market games. My solution is to stream them team by team, and charge a few bucks a game so you get to pick and choose which ones you want, still offering the year long package for those diehard fans. What do you guys think?

Arsenal make an "official" bid for Suarez, and no, not the racist one...

This one is from Argentina and currently plays for Anderlecht as a forward. I don't know much about this version Suarez, but at the very least he isn't suspended for eight matches... I've seen "official bid", "strong bid" (like this source), and "confirmed bid", so I guess all we can really do is hope for the best, we need the forward help anyways

A bid for Lukas Podolski

No sources listed (it's Soccernet, what else would you expect?) except for a mention of reports out of Germany, so if anybody is willing to dig into German sport articles and translate. These aren't the only reports though, they seem to be popping up everywhere and it makes me think that 1.) We're trying to build up a decent squad to attract even more people and to keep our current stars (RVP) from going elsewhere, or 2.) We're preparing for the possibility of a departure of RVP. Either way, we desperately need the forward help
