Interlull : Sunday round-up

A quick Sunday round-up for you.

Arsenal players got themselves on the scoresheet yesterday for their respective countries. Cesc scored a lovely goal against Armenia, Philippe Senderos scored two excellent headers against Luxembourg and William Gallas got one for France as Spain, Switzerland and France all won.

You can find the goals over at 101greatgoals. Cesc won’t play for Spain in midweek for family reasons but as of yet there are no reports of any injuries picked up by any of our lads, so fingers crossed it stays like that.

Stan Kroenke has yet to pay up for his recent share purchases, according to the Sunday Times. I’m sure he’s put a £50 deposit down though. Meanwhile, Ivan Gazidis talks about the need to win trophies and the boardroom situation in terms of Kroenke v Usmanov (sounds like a heavyweight title fight, in fairness).

Transfer speculation time – Gael Clichy is being linked with a £16m move to Real Madrid. Which is no doubt completely made up but it would certainly test the manager if a bid like that came in. With Kieran Gibbs waiting in the wings and Clichy’s form a cause for continued concern it might very well be tempting. If it were real. Which, of course, it’s not. Because it’s completely made up. Probably.

Elsewhere Atletico Madrid are keeping their red and white stripey eyes on Fran Merida. Apparently he’s in the last year of his contract so could move on a free in the summer if he wanted.

The same article in the People says Samir Nasri will make his return to action in the Carling Cup against Liverpool. The Mirror says he’ll return to full training this week. Which is good news.

And that’s about all the news there is from this humourless, entirely Arsenal related, blog.

Till tomorrow.
