International Break: Snoozefest Update

After the highs of West Ham, we are brought down by the impending International fixtures and periodical "PLEASE DON'T GET INJURED" dance we all do. The U-21's won 2-0 last night and was beneficial for the likes of Sagna, Wilshere, Frimpong, Coquelin and Santos to get even more minutes under the belt. Special praise was dealt though for Serge Gnabry who looks like he'll be the next one to make transition from youngsters to seniors, however I am interested to see if Gnabry gets a loan a la Wilshere in preparation for this.

During the snoozefest I'm hoping to bring you some interviews from some characters I have met along my journey on Twitter so stay tuned for that - meanwhile here are the latest new snippets involving Arsenal.

Marquez: Guardiola "Perfect for Arsenal"

New York Red Bulls' Rafa Marquez has stoked the fire on Pep Guardiola's next move

"I didn't yet have the chance to meet Pep in New York," Marquez told SER. "We have been in touch before, to help him move here. 

"He will soon return to the game. I think he'll go to England. He'd be perfect for Arsenal."

Yes he would Rafa, tell him to bring that wee Argentinian fella and the ghostly looking Spanish dude with him as well.

Giroud: "Many more to come"

Arsenal's newly-christened striker in the Church of Premier League Goals Olivier Giroud has spoken of his relief on breaking his duck to French Station Radio Monte Carlo.

"It sounds a bit silly, but seeing the ball in the back of the net was something I was waiting for in the Premier League," he said. "At last I've been baptized, I hope there are many more goals to come.
"Obviously I was expecting things to be a bit complicated because the Premier League is of a very high standard, if not the highest. You have to adapt and even Thierry Henry took some time to score his first goal. It changes quite a lot of things for a striker, playing at the highest level for a big club like Arsenal, you have to be decisive.

Until tomorrow...
