Arsenal 3-1 Manchester City
Walcott (9), Ramsey (59), Giroud (62)
Arsenal emerged 3-1 victors in a pre-season friendly in Helsinki against Premier League runners-up Manchester City.
Against the run of play, the Gunners took an early lead with forward Theo Walcott chipping over Man City ‘keeper Joe Hart.
The England international then turned provider after his pass was dummied by French striker Olivier Giroud, which set up Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey to round Hart to score Arsenal’s second.
Walcott grabbed his second assist of the game, after a long pass up to Giroud – who chipped Joe Hart to put the London side 3-0 up. .......Read more here.....

Ever since Olivier Giroud got sent off against Fulham, Arsenal fans were clamouring for Lukas Podolski to be given the centre-forward role for the future, but after the German was hardly seen in the game against Man United, perhaps the enthusiasm has waned.
But Arsene Wenger seems convinced that the German international is the right man for the job going forward, despite his no-show in last weeks game. Wenger said: “He has the qualities because he is a good finisher,”
“He has a good technique and because we have a game based on very quick combinations, I believe he can be a part of that. Overall I am convinced in the coming games he will show it. .......Read more here.....

Arsene Wenger knows that he needs to sign some top quality players in the summer, or as he puts it, `top, top, top, top players. The current top wage at the Emirates is around £100,000 a week for Theo Walcott and Lukas Podolski, but that will not be enough to persuade some of Europe’s best to join the Gunnersespecially when they know they can earn the equivalent of winning the jackpot at www.MansionCasino.com every week if they join Chelsea or Man City. .......Read more here.....

The Arsenal winger Theo Walcott got a rare start in a League game yesterday against Tottenham, but he was instrumental in helping the Gunners to a 5-2 and even scored the final goal when moved into the centre-forward position towards the end.
Tottenham took the lead early on but Arsenal took over after Adebayor was sent off (even I took advantage as I was given some free football bets and backed Arsenal to win after Adebayor gave Spurs the lead!) and Walcott believes that the Gunners fully deserved all three points. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger claims that nothing will motivate him to force Wilshere into a speedy comeback, after the English midfielder was out for the whole length of last season with a recurring injury to his ankle.
“It is impossible to set a concrete deadline at the moment,” Wenger told the club’s official website.
“But it is all OK. He is as quick as we expected him to be. His ankle is good and his knee is good. There is no setback.” .......Read more here.....

Arsenal’s winger Theo Walcott seems to have gone through a change of heart now that he’s on the road with the team again. Being highly linked with a departure from the Emirates Stadium, with clubs like Juventus and Liverpool on his trail, the English International has spoken like a true Gunner once he arrived in Asia where Arsenal will play their pre-season friendlies.
“I am dead excited – it is great to see the fans,” Walcott told Arsenal Player. “It means lot to them because they never really get to see us in person.” .......Read more here.....

The England manager Roy Hodgson has already lost Gary Cahill, Gareth Barry, Frank Lampard and John Ruddy out of his squad through injury, and Arsenal’s Theo Walcott is still slowly recovering from his hamstring injury picked up before the end of the season.
The winger has admitted that injuries have been bugging him for a few years and says that he is trying hard not to think about it, but obviously not doing well because he has spoken about it on Sky Sports!
“We try not to think about these injuries because ever since I had my shoulder operation, if I tend to think about injuries then I’ll get injured myself,” said Walcott. .......Read more here.....

The Arsenal winger Theo Walcott isn’t afraid of the competition he’s being brought by new Gunner wonderkid Oxlade-Chamberlain, although the English international claims that their roles in the team differ quite a lot.
Walcott seems to think that the two of them can coexist perfectly together on the pitch, given that even though their talents are quite alike, the Ox is not really a winger.
“It’s always great to have competition. You want to play well, you want the team to play well and to have other players around keeps you on your toes. .......Read more here.....

Arsene Wenger believes that the Arsenal fans were instrumental in helping the Gunners recover from their terrible start this season, despite the anger shown at the end of last season’s campaign and the beginning of this one.
“I believe our fans at home are much better this season than last season,” he said. “After a difficult start to the season they understood quickly that we needed their support and they changed their attitude.
“Overall, during the season, especially since January, they have been really behind the team and it helped us in many games.” .......Read more here.....
