12.15 – Not a lot happening today, just about recovered from yesterday’s late late shenannigans.
Arsene Wenger is full of praise for Thierry Henry’s missile, and he has something to say about his goal yesterday too. Meanwhile, David Dein is highly critical of Espanyol after Alex Manniger’s transfer to the Catalan club fell through. He says “..we are appalled by the whole affair.” However, despite Arsenal’s need for a new keeper it doesn’t look as if Alex will be considered as AW says he will make a decision about which keeper to sign on Monday.
Today’s News of the World reports that David Trezeguet will sign for either Arsenal or Real Madrid at the end of the current season, while young Irish striker Graham Barrett (who has not gone to Beveren) talks here about Arsenal, his battle with glandular fever and his ambitions for the future. It’s been such a long time since we had a decent Irishman in the team, it would be great to see Graham make the grade.
