Arsenal have thrashed German outfit Vfb Stutgart in their own backyard 3-1. All the 4 goals comming in the second half. The starting line up of Arsenal was containing of usual first team players with the exception of Eboue playing in the central midfield. Also Samir Nasri was given his debut for Arsenal.The subs had plenty of young and talented reserves players.
subs: Fabianski, J.Hoyte, G.Hoyte, Lansbury, Randall, Wilshere, Vela, Ramsey, Simpson, Bendtner.
Then Eboue and Samir Nasri were replaced for Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey. The third was by far the best goal of the match also of the preseason. Most of the work leading upto the goal was done by Gael Clichy dribbling pass two defenders in the box and then somehow finding the 16 year old prodigy Jack Wilshere who gave a left footed pile driver to slot the ball home. I say this lad could be next Fabregas and is defiantely in Wenger's plans. Keep a watch on him people.
Bacary Sagna was replaced by Gavin Hoyte and Walcott gave way to Mark Randall.Finally Vela and Denilson made way for Henri Lansburry and Jay Simpson.It was enough to see Arsenal secure a win against a good Bundes Liga outfit.From the look of it , the lads are seeming to be getting in the groove.Keep on scoring Gunners...

Portugese under 21 Amaury Bischoff has officially signed for the club.There were rumors that he was about to sign circulating past month.The deal has been confirmed on Arsenal's website.I think he has been unlucky with injury but has a great potential. For the Bio of the player Click here.
I would like to mention to you guys that if David Bentley signs for Spuds for £17 million transfer Arsenal are set to pocket of 50% of that amount, as per the agreement signed when he was transfered to Blackburn Rovers. Now £ 8.5 million is big money any way you see it. I think it would be interesting to see him in the North London derby.Till then Go Arsenal Go....
