Picasa Arsène Wenger's top 10 Arsenal signings 10. Mikel Arteta Bought from Everton for £10 million in 2011 There are good reasons to argue that the likes of Emmanuel Petit or Freddie Ljungberg should be included on this list ahead of Arteta but they were very different signings in being additional components to already great teams. Arteta might have been bought at a premium price for a 29-year-old but his influence both on the pitch and in the dressing-room has, at times, been the glue that has held Arsenal together during the most difficult transitional two seasons of Arsène Wenger’s entire 17 years as manager. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 9. Cesc Fabregas Bought from Barcelona for compensation fee of £500,000 in 2003 and sold back to Barcelona in 2011 for £35 million Related Articles Wenger will always feel slightly scarred by his failure to keep Fabregas just as he was entering the very peak years of his career but, in terms of the pure economics, he has never extracted more value from a deal. Was signed from Barcelona’s academy at the age of just 16 and went on to play 303 times for Arsenal before being sold back to Barca for 70 times more than Wenger originally paid. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 8. Robin van Persie Bought from Feyenoord in 2004 for £2.5 million. Sold to Manchester United in 2012 for £24 million The very best Wenger signings are those who have given their best years to Arsenal and also been sold at a huge profit. Time will tell on the first point, although Van Persie is still unlikely to ever repeat his golden 17 month period at Arsenal from January 2011 until May 2012 when he scored 59 goals. A fee of £24 million may also still prove to be good business for a 29-year-old in the final season of his contract. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 7. Sol Campbell Free transfer from Tottenham in 2001. Left on a free transfer to Portsmouth in 2006 Also returned for a second spell in 2010 but it was this first period when Campbell achieved greatness as an Arsenal player. Arrived for nothing from Arsenal’s most bitter rivals and went on to be the defensive rock of a team that won three FA Cups and two Premier League titles, including going the entire 2003-4 season undefeated. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 6. Robert Pires Bought from Marseille in 2000 for £6 million and left on a free transfer to Villarreal in 2006. Not higher on the list simply because he was bought for a significant fee and eventually left on a free transfer but still a fabulous signing for what he produced during six memorable years at Arsenal. Was also an amazing value replacement for Marc Overmars who was sold that same summer by Wenger for £25 million. Rated sixth on the all-time list of Arsenal’s greatest ever players. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 5. Nicolas Anelka Bought from Paris St Germain in 1997 for £500,000. Sold to Real Madrid for £22.5 million in 1999 Anelka’s Arsenal years were short but very sweet. He was completely unknown when he arrived as a 17-year-old in 1997 but, in tandem with Dennis Bergkamp, was the attacking inspiration behind the first Premier League/FA Cup double of 1998. After just two seasons at Arsenal he was then sold to Real Madrid at an extraordinary profit. It is doubtful, though, whether he ever played better in his entire career than his 28 months at Arsenal. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 4. Kolo Touré Bought from ASEC Mimosas for £150,000 in 2001. Sold to Manchester City for £16 million in 2009 Another who not only played for Arsenal during the peak of his career but was also sold at a massive profit to Manchester City. Totally unknown when he arrived from the Ivory Coast in 2002 but went on to play more than 300 times for Arsenal, including the ‘Invincible’ season of 2003-4. Wenger’s biggest regret might be not also buying his brother when he had the chance. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 3. Marc Overmars Bought from Ajax for £5.5 million in 1997 and sold to Barcelona in 2000 for £25 million Another who generated a fabulous profit having also probably produced the best years of his career for Arsenal. Was superb during the double-winning season of 1998 and never again reached those heights at Barcelona. The sale, though, still allowed Wenger to buy a better player in Pires for just £6 million and make a £13.5 million profit. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2. Patrick Vieira Bought for £3.5 million from AC Milan in 1996. Sold to Juventus for £13.5 million in 2006. Arsenal’s leader and midfield driving force during the greatest years of Wenger’s reign. Was his first major signing upon becoming manager in 1996 and arguably also his most influential. Vieira was part of all seven of Wenger’s trophy-winning teams and was also somehow still sold for a handsome profit in 2006 to Juventus when his best were behind him. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. Thierry Henry Bought from Juventus in 1999 for £11 million. Sold to Barcelona in 2007 for £16 million. Arrived as a left winger but transformed under Wenger into the best player in the Premier League and arguably the finest centre-forward in Europe. Was to become Arsenal’s all-time record goalscorer and, by common consent, their greatest ever player.

Picasa 10 ways innovator Arsene Wenger has changed English football forever Today marks the 18th anniversary of Arsene Wenger walking into Arsenal as manager for the first time. When he first joined the club from Nagoya Grampus Eight, English football collectively asked: "Arsene who?" He soon answered that question by winning three Premier League titles and four FA Cups, as well as overseeing the move from Highbury to the Emirates. But his influence has been felt even beyond his own club. Here Gunnerblog's James McNicholas charts the ways the famously myopic Frenchman has changed English football in 18 glittering years. 1) Innovative training methods Wenger’s first revolutionary shift occurred on the training field. He earned his nickname “The Professor” thanks to his precise planning and meticulous preparation. Turgid stamina work was replaced with short-burst sessions, and an emphasis was placed on close-control and small-sided games. Crucial to Wenger’s philosophy was the idea that almost all work should involve the ball. When he first arrived, his methods were met with skepticism. Arsenal’s old guard were distrustful of this angular, unknown Frenchman. However, he ended up being credited with extending the careers of the famous back four by several years. 2) Introducing new dietary habits GETTY Wenger’s time in Japan opened his eyes to the importance of nutrition. Looking back on his spell with Grampus Eight, he said: “I lived for two years in Japan and it was the best diet I ever had. Their diet is basically boiled vegetables, fish and rice. No fat, no sugar. You notice when you live there that there are no fat people. I think in England you eat too much sugar and meat and not enough vegetables.” Wenger believes diet is an essential part of what he calls a player’s “non-visible” preparation. The carefully-balanced menus he insisted on introducing at Arsenal have since become standard fare throughout English football. 3) Paving the way for foreign managers When Wenger arrived at Arsenal, foreign managers were few and far between in England. The disastrous appointment of Dr Josef Venglos at Aston Villa still haunted the nation’s chairmen. Arsenal’s gamble paid off. Wenger won the double in his first full-season, and paved the way for a host of foreign managers to follow him in to the Premier League. 4) Aesthetic excellence Wenger has produced some of the most attractive football the Premier League has ever seen. His title-winning team of 2003-04 played consistently sumptuous stuff, eating up the pitch with their quick stride and even quicker passing. A club once known as “Boring Boring Arsenal” has become synonymous with attractive football. What’s more, Wenger managed to combine aesthetics with success. The Frenchman believes that beautiful football is the most obvious route to trophies. He has said: “If I asked you who was the best team in the world you would say Brazil. And do they play good football? Yes. Which club won everything last year? Barcelona. Good football. I am not against being pragmatic, because it is pragmatic to make a good pass, not a bad one.” Since Wenger’s arrival, the general standard of football in the league has improved as other clubs have sought to follow suit. 5) Embracing foreign players Getty Arsene Wenger’s first Arsenal XI contained 10 British internationals. The only foreigner was a young French midfielder by the name of Patrick Vieira, who was making just his third Premier League start for the Gunners. However, in 2005, Wenger became the first manager to name an entirely foreign squad for the match at home to Crystal Palace. That squad included six Frenchmen, three Spaniards, two Dutchmen, a German, an Ivorian, a Cameroonian, a Brazilian, and a Swiss. Wenger has long abided by the mantra that talent matters far more than a passport. He realised early on that foreign players were cheaper than their foreign counterparts, and the success of the likes of Vieira changed perceptions about players from overseas throughout the league. 6) Making myopia a managerial necessity Wenger’s post-match claim of “I did not see the incident” swiftly became something of a catchphrase. It enabled him to avoid discussion of any misdemeanor perpetrated by a member of his team. However, it also tells you plenty about Wenger the man-manager. Although he may have admonished his players behind closed doors, he has always backed them publicly. Such elliptical statements have become commonplace now, as managers are increasingly careful with their post-match words in order to avoid being charged with bringing the game in to disrepute. 7) Creating an invincible team In the 2003-04 season, Wenger led his Arsenal team through the entire Premier League season unbeaten. They went on to go fully 49 games without losing: the longest unbeaten run in the history of top-flight English football. It was an extraordinary feat, and one that is unlikely to be repeated in the Premier League era. 8) Bringing gallic flair to the press conference Christof Koepsel Arsene Wenger attends the press conference of Arsenal FC at the Veltins-Arena ahead of the UEFA Champions League group B match between FC Schalke 04 and Arsenal FC on November 5, 2012 Arsene Wenger’s press conferences are never less than entertaining. When he arrived in English football, he was the first manager with the wit and intelligence to take on Sir Alex Ferguson in his fabled “mind games”. Unlike Kevin Keegan, Wenger was able to handle the pressure, making headlines with a series of legendary soundbites. By way of example, Wenger once responded to Ferguson’s criticism of his team with the withering retort: “Everyone thinks he has the prettiest wife at home”. 9) Emphasis on youth When Arsenal moved to the Emirates Stadium in 2006, it severely impinged upon their spending capacity. With that in mind, Wenger opted for a new policy based around youth. His theory was simple enough: “The boy comes in at 16 or 17 and when they go out they have a supplement of soul, of love for the club, because they have been educated together. The people you meet at college from 16 to 20, often those are the relationships in life that keep going. That, I think, will give us strength that other clubs will not have.” This was not in itself revolutionary. Sir Alex Ferguson had already experienced considerable success with his homegrown class of 92. Wenger’s innovation was to be prepared to scour the globe for the best young talent. He filled his academy with Spaniards, Frenchmen and Poles, producing the likes of Cesc Fabregas and Wojciech Szczesny. That model has since been replicated across English football - a visit to any modern Premier League academy will turn up a host of foreign talent. 10) Pre-empting FFP Arsene Wenger had Arsenal operating under Financial Fair Play before FFP was even a twinkle in Michel Platini’s eye. He has always wanted the club to spend only the resources it was able to generate. That self-sufficient model has seen Arsenal struggle to compete with the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea. However, the incoming regulations should see Arsenal re-established as a financial powerhouse. Wenger’s long-term vision has once again been rewarded.

10 ways innovator Arsene Wenger has changed English football forever



Today marks the 18th anniversary of Arsene Wenger walking into Arsenal as manager for the first time.

When he first joined the club from Nagoya Grampus Eight, English football collectively asked: "Arsene who?"

He soon answered that question by winning three Premier League titles and four FA Cups, as well as overseeing the move from Highbury to the Emirates.

But his influence has been felt even beyond his own club.

Here Gunnerblog's James McNicholas charts the ways the famously myopic Frenchman has changed English football in 18 glittering years.

1) Innovative training methods
Wenger’s first revolutionary shift occurred on the training field. He earned his nickname “The Professor” thanks to his precise planning and meticulous preparation.

Turgid stamina work was replaced with short-burst sessions, and an emphasis was placed on close-control and small-sided games. Crucial to Wenger’s philosophy was the idea that almost all work should involve the ball.

When he first arrived, his methods were met with skepticism. Arsenal’s old guard were distrustful of this angular, unknown Frenchman. However, he ended up being credited with extending the careers of the famous back four by several years.

2) Introducing new dietary habits

Wenger believes diet is an essential part of what he calls a player’s “non-visible” preparation. The carefully-balanced menus he insisted on introducing at Arsenal have since become standard fare throughout English football.

3) Paving the way for foreign managers
When Wenger arrived at Arsenal, foreign managers were few and far between in England. The disastrous appointment of Dr Josef Venglos at Aston Villa still haunted the nation’s chairmen.

Arsenal’s gamble paid off. Wenger won the double in his first full-season, and paved the way for a host of foreign managers to follow him in to the Premier League.

4) Aesthetic excellence
Wenger has produced some of the most attractive football the Premier League has ever seen. His title-winning team of 2003-04 played consistently sumptuous stuff, eating up the pitch with their quick stride and even quicker passing.

5) Embracing foreign players

Arsene Wenger’s first Arsenal XI contained 10 British internationals. The only foreigner was a young French midfielder by the name of Patrick Vieira, who was making just his third Premier League start for the Gunners.

However, in 2005, Wenger became the first manager to name an entirely foreign squad for the match at home to Crystal Palace. That squad included six Frenchmen, three Spaniards, two Dutchmen, a German, an Ivorian, a Cameroonian, a Brazilian, and a Swiss.

Wenger has long abided by the mantra that talent matters far more than a passport. He realised early on that foreign players were cheaper than their foreign counterparts, and the success of the likes of Vieira changed perceptions about players from overseas throughout the league.

6) Making myopia a managerial necessity
Wenger’s post-match claim of “I did not see the incident” swiftly became something of a catchphrase. It enabled him to avoid discussion of any misdemeanor perpetrated by a member of his team.

However, it also tells you plenty about Wenger the man-manager. Although he may have admonished his players behind closed doors, he has always backed them publicly.

Unlike Kevin Keegan, Wenger was able to handle the pressure, making headlines with a series of legendary soundbites. By way of example, Wenger once responded to Ferguson’s criticism of his team with the withering retort: “Everyone thinks he has the prettiest wife at home”.

9) Emphasis on youth
When Arsenal moved to the Emirates Stadium in 2006, it severely impinged upon their spending capacity. With that in mind, Wenger opted for a new policy based around youth.

His theory was simple enough: “The boy comes in at 16 or 17 and when they go out they have a supplement of soul, of love for the club, because they have been educated together. The people you meet at college from 16 to 20, often those are the relationships in life that keep going. That, I think, will give us strength that other clubs will not have.”

This was not in itself revolutionary. Sir Alex Ferguson had already experienced considerable success with his homegrown class of 92. Wenger’s innovation was to be prepared to scour the globe for the best young talent. He filled his academy with Spaniards, Frenchmen and Poles, producing the likes of Cesc Fabregas and Wojciech Szczesny. That model has since been replicated across English football - a visit to any modern Premier League academy will turn up a host of foreign talent.

10) Pre-empting FFP
Arsene Wenger had Arsenal operating under Financial Fair Play before FFP was even a twinkle in Michel Platini’s eye. He has always wanted the club to spend only the resources it was able to generate. That self-sufficient model has seen Arsenal struggle to compete with the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea. However, the incoming regulations should see Arsenal re-established as a financial powerhouse. Wenger’s long-term vision has once again been rewarded.

Picasa We take a look at the top 10 worst flops to have ‘graced’ Highbury or the Emirates. 10. Denilson The Brazilian midfielder arrived from South America in 2006 as a potential future star. He was the Brazil under-17 captain and was seen as someone who could be the fulcrum of the Gunners’ midfield for years to come. However, that never happened and he ended up going back to Brazil on loan after years of mediocrity summed up by a moment when he sank to the Emirates turf as though shot during a January 2010 match against Everton. He had the ball at the time, and his decision to collapse very nearly led to the Toffees winning the game. 9. Clive Allen Clive Allen arguably had the shortest Arsenal career ever, signing for the north Londoners for the then princely sum of £1.25m in 1980. But after three pre-season friendly games and no competitive action he was on his way out, joining Crystal Palace in exchange for Kenny Sansom. In his later career as assistant manager at Spurs he called Arsene Wenger ‘two-bob’ – not that he’s bitter about his Arsenal experience. Francis Jeffers Francis Jeffers: the fox who was never in the box (Picture: Getty) 8. Francis Jeffers Francis Jeffers was the ‘fox-in-the-box’ striker Arsenal fans had been clamouring for and, when he arrived in 2001, there was genuine excitement that he could be the successor to Ian Wright. Three years and only 13 starts later, however, his Arsenal career ended in ignominy when he was sent off in the 2003 Community Shield and he never played for the club again. 7. Richard Wright If Jeffers was the man who made Wenger doubt the logic of paying big for English players, then Richard Wright was the man who made certain Le Boss would be looking to the continent for new players from now on. Wright left Ipswich for £6million in 2001 and was all set to take over David Seaman’s gloves for club and country. Instead, he managed just 22 starts for Arsenal and is best remembered for punching the ball into his own net in a 4-2 home defeat by Charlton. Kaba Diawara Kaba Diawara: We struggled to find a picture of him actually touching the ball 6. Kaba DiawaraKaba Diawara may well be the Marouane Chamakh of his time. Just like Chamakh, the Guinea striker was plucked from relative obscurity at Bordeaux and, just like Chamakh, he didn’t exactly deliver.After joining in January 1999 he made 15 appearances and failed to find the net once. Indeed, he failed to even get close. He left Arsenal 5 months after he arrived.5. John Jensen John Jensen wasn’t that bad a player in truth. He usually performed his tasks with efficiency and reliability, without ever excelling. But a midfielder who only scored one goal in 138 appearances and spawned a range of T-shirts proclaiming the wearer ‘was there when Jensen scored’ has to appear in this list. Although his one goal, against QPR in a 3-1 home defeat, was a cracker. 4. Pascal Cygan Unkind Arsenal fans used to liken Pascal Cygan to Kryten, the robotoid character from Red Dwarf. Unkinder ones used to say he played like him too, with a lumbering style that perhaps made him look worse than he was. Which is hard. Cygan left Arsenal to join Villareal for £2m in 2006, arguably his most impressive move during his entire four-year career in north London. 3. Ian Ure If proof were needed that buying dodgy defenders is not a recent Arsenal phenomenon, then look no further than Scottish defender Ian Ure, who arrived at Highbury in 1963 for a considerable fee. He made mistake after mistake for the Gunners, including a miss-hit pass back to his keeper during the 1969 League Cup final against Swindon which eventually led to a humiliating 3-1 defeat. 2. Sebastien Squillaci What Arsenal were crying out for in the summer of 2011 was an experienced defender who could slot straight into a creaky defence and shore it up immediately. What the club got was Sebastien Squillaci – a player who makes you believe you could still play at a World Cup if he can. 1. Gus Caesar The biggest flop ever has to be the man who many Arsenal supporters believe single-handedly brought about one of their most humiliating experiences ever – the 3-2 defeat to Luton Town in the 1988 League Cup final. The defender was only playing because David O’Leary was injured but many Arsenal fans may have preferred a crocked O’Leary than Caesar after an inept performance allowed Luton to come back from 2-1 down to claim the trophy. Nick Hornby used Caesar as an example of how it can all go wrong in his book Fever Pitch and Arsenal fanzine The Gooner duly voted him the worst Gunner ever. He was so bad, he makes Andre Santos seem OK, although we don’t think he ever swapped shirts with an opponent at half-time…

Picasa We're back to the #ChampionsLeague  again tonight so let's have a look at two of the stand out fixtures. Arsenal's (1.50) home clash with Galatasaray (6.00). Arsene Wenger's side look to be without Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere for this match and while that's a blow, they should have enough here to take the three points. Gala were disappointing in their opening Champions League match as they failed to beat Anderlecht at home and that doesn't bode well here. The Turkish side lost to FC Copenhagen on their Champions League travels last season and expect more of the same on Wednesday. The 1.97 on Arsenal -1 looks a sound bet. Remember, you'll get your stake back if they win by the odd goal, but a wider-margin victory is definitely something they're capable of. Liverpool (2.02) got a real fright on Matchday 1 in the Champions League when they struggled to get past Ludogorets and this trip to Switzerland to face Basle (3.65) looks a tricky fixture to overcome. With just two wins from their opening seven domestic fixtures, there's a real suspicion that Liverpool will find it hard this season juggling the Premier League with the Champions League and so far that's been the case.

Picasa Team news, match facts and manager quotes for the Champions League game between Arsenal and Galatasaray. Arsenal will be confident of reaching the Champions League knockout stages but their path to the last 16 could become problematic if they fail to beat Galatasaray on the 18th anniversary of Arsene Wenger's arrival in north London. Cesare Prandelli's men travel to The Emirates where Arsenal will attempt to kickstart their European campaign after failing to turn up in Dortmund two weeks ago. Arsenal got off lightly in their Group D opener, lucky to lose only 2-0 in Dortmund after being comprehensively outplayed for 90 minutes by the Bundesliga side who already look strong favourites to top the group. Although a home match against Galatasaray -- who have never beaten an English side away -- would appear to offer the perfect chance for Arsene Wenger's side to respond with a handsome victory, things may not be quite that simple. TEAM NEWS Arsenal will be without midfielder Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta for the Champions League Group D match against Galatasaray, but Jack Wilshere should be fit from an ankle problem. Midfielder Abou Diaby is likely to be rested following a hip problem, while wingers Theo Walcott and Serge Gnabry (both knee) are in line to return after the international break, along with Spain defender Nacho Monreal (back) and striker Yaya Sanogo (hamstring). Full-back Mathieu Debuchy (ankle) and France forward Olivier Giroud (fractured foot) are long-term absentees. Galatasaray coach Cesare Prandelli has the luxury of being able to choose from a full squad for the clash with Arsenal at the Emirates. Aurelien Chedjou and Semih Kaya are expected to start at the heart of the Turkish side's defence, having helped Prandelli's men in conceding just three goals in their opening five domestic matches. Goran Pandev and Burak Yilmaz will lead the line, with Wesley Sneijder sitting in just behind the front to. MANAGER QUOTES Arsene Wenger: "It’s a great honour and privilege to be in charge of such a big club for such a long time, but I have no time to look back right now, I will do it at another time. I never look back. What is always your target is to take the maximum potential out of the team. The only thing I would say this season is that this team has huge potential and it has to come out. At the moment I am more worried about that. For the rest, Champions League evolution, maybe it was more open 15 years ago than it is today. The concentration of the big players in a small number of clubs is much more than it was before. ‘It’s much more predictable, the outcome of the Champions League, than it was 10 years ago. It’s harder to win it." Cesare Prandelli: "We are playing against a quality, experienced team at their own ground, and so will have to be a bit more controlled in our game. We should be running enough to close all of the gaps and we should play our own game. We will make sure whenever we lose the ball, we will get it back quicker. We have to be brave, to be courageous and make sure we play our own style. For us, it is important to get out as a team, to defend strong. We must have respect, that is important, but not be afraid." MATCH FACTS This will be only the second occasion that these two sides have met in a European game – the first being the 2000 UEFA Cup final that ended 0-0 before Galatasaray won 4–1 on penalties. Excluding penalty shootouts, Arsenal have never lost a game against a Turkish opponent (W5 D4), keeping a clean sheet in eight of these nine games. The Gunners have won just one of their last six Champions League games (W1 D2 L3 incl. qualifiers); this victory came against Turkish opposition in Beskitas, however. Galatasaray have never won a European game away against an English side (D3 L6). The Turkish side are three goals away from the 100-goal mark in the Champions League (97). Of the 32 teams in the 2014-15 Champions League, Galatasaray have been given a red card the most frequently on average (one every six games). Burak Yilmaz scored his ninth Champions League goal on MD1 against Anderlecht. Only one Turkish player has scored more goals in the Champions League – Hakan Sükür (13). Galatasaray have kept a clean sheet in one of their last 14 Champions League games. Mesut Özil has had a hand in a goal every 243 mins in the CL for Arsenal. At Real Madrid, this ratio was a goal or assist every 129 mins. Eurosport

What is always your target is to take the maximum potential out of the team. The only thing I would say this season is that this team has huge potential and it has to come out. At the moment I am more worried about that. For the rest, Champions League evolution, maybe it was more open 15 years ago than it is today. The concentration of the big players in a small number of clubs is much more than it was before. ‘It’s much more predictable, the outcome of the Champions League, than it was 10 years ago. It’s harder to win it."

Cesare Prandelli: "We are playing against a quality, experienced team at their own ground, and so will have to be a bit more controlled in our game. We should be running enough to close all of the gaps and we should play our own game. We will make sure whenever we lose the ball, we will get it back quicker. We have to be brave, to be courageous and make sure we play our own style. For us, it is important to get out as a team, to defend strong. We must have respect, that is important, but not be afraid."

MATCH FACTS

This will be only the second occasion that these two sides have met in a European game – the first being the 2000 UEFA Cup final that ended 0-0 before Galatasaray won 4–1 on penalties.

Excluding penalty shootouts, Arsenal have never lost a game against a Turkish opponent (W5 D4), keeping a clean sheet in eight of these nine games.

The Gunners have won just one of their last six Champions League games (W1 D2 L3 incl. qualifiers); this victory came against Turkish opposition in Beskitas, however.

Galatasaray have never won a European game away against an English side (D3 L6).

The Turkish side are three goals away from the 100-goal mark in the Champions League (97).

Of the 32 teams in the 2014-15 Champions League, Galatasaray have been given a red card the most frequently on average (one every six games).

Burak Yilmaz scored his ninth Champions League goal on MD1 against Anderlecht. Only one Turkish player has scored more goals in the Champions League – Hakan Sükür (13).

Galatasaray have kept a clean sheet in one of their last 14 Champions League games.

Mesut Özil has had a hand in a goal every 243 mins in the CL for Arsenal. At Real Madrid, this ratio was a goal or assist every 129 mins.

Picasa Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has agreed a new contract with the club, according to manager Arsene Wenger. Giroud, 28, a £12m signing from Montpellier in 2012, will sign a reported two-year extension,  keeping him with the Gunners until 2018. "It is agreed. When it's completely done we will announce it," said Wenger. The France international is currently recovering from ankle surgery which is expected to keep him sidelined until the end of the year. Giroud was injured during Arsenal's 2-2 draw at Everton in August and was ruled out for up to four months. He was a key member of the Arsenal team which finished fourth in the league last season, starting 36 of Arsenal's 38 league matches and scoring 16 goals. Wenger added: "We want stability and to keep the core of our team together. Giroud is an important player here."

Picasa Sanchez dropped by Wenger for disrupting Arsenal's style The Gunners boss believes the Chilean slows down his team's passing game by lingering on the ball and preferred Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain against Aston Villa and Tottenham Alexis Sanchez has been an instant hit with Arsenal supporters since becoming the second-most expensive signing in the club's history. Yet despite the €41 million forward's eye-catching goals, pace and industry, his early performances for the Londoners have not totally convinced Arsene Wenger. Goal has learned that Sanchez has been dropped by the manager from the starting XI for Arsenal's last two Premier League matches for slowing down the team's well-established passing game. Wenger reacted to Arsenal's limp 2-0 defeat at Borussia Dortmund in their Champions League opener a fortnight ago by axing Sanchez and replacing him for the trip to Aston Villa with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Arsenal triumphed 3-0 at Villa Park and Wenger repeated the formula for last Saturday's 1-1 draw against Tottenham, with Oxlade-Chamberlain smashing in the equaliser. Eyebrows may have have been raised in the stands at the sight of Sanchez emerging from the bench as the third of Arsenal's substitutes after 62 minutes of the north London derby. However, Wenger is concerned at the effect the World Cup star has on the team's style of play when he plays entire matches. The Frenchman and his coaching staff are trying to drill into Sanchez the need to release the ball earlier rather than hang on to it for too long and lose the ball in dangerous areas. One particular area they are working on is when Sanchez receives the ball around the half-way line with his back to goal and is under pressure from the opposition. Arsenal are convinced the training-ground discussions will help make the Chilean even more of an asset to the team. Sanchez has mainly been used on the right flank since his transfer from Barcelona, although he spearheaded the attack in two early-season matches when preferred up front to Olivier Giroud. Since Giroud was sidelined with a broken foot and Danny Welbeck arrived on deadline day for €20 million, the former Manchester United man has started all four of Arsenal's Premier League and Champions League matches, and Sanchez has had to fight with the likes of Oxlade-Chamberlain, Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere for a wide attacking role. With four goals in five matches before the Spurs match, including a wondrous volleyed strike in last month's 2-2 draw with Manchester City, Sanchez appeared to have made an emphatic case for his inclusion. But Wenger believes the 25-year-old needs to fine-tune his game before being one of the first names on the teamsheet.

Picasa ARSENAL manager Arsene Wenger has hinted that he may deploy Calum Chambers in midfield. The Gunners are currently suffering a crisis in the middle of the park with three of their first choice midfielders out injured. Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey, and club Mikel Arteta are currently on the sidelines - and are all doubts for their Champions League match against Galatasaray on Wednesday evening. Ahead of the match against the Turkish giants, Wenger reaveled that he is tempted to play the versatile Chambers in the centre of park in an attempt to quell the crisis in his midfield. He said: “He has been remarkable in every position. “He has an unbelievable engine. He goes and goes. It’s not often that you see that quality. “His yellow card was very harsh and the one against Villa was very harsh as well. I’ve told him to be keen and committed and I think he had a good game overall. “I’d consider playing him in midfield but I don’t know about Wednesday [against Galatasaray] because I only have four defenders at the moment.”

Picasa Premier League - Wenger confident of upturn in Arsenal results Arsene Wenger is confident Arsenal can rekindle the art of winning after a series of frustrating Premier League draws but their quest may be hindered by a "worrying" injury crisis. Reuters The Gunners are unbeaten in six Premier League games this season but have won just twice, dropping a host of points from winning positions to leave them six behind leaders Chelsea. Against north London rivals Tottenham on Saturday, Arsenal dominated possession but failed to break down the visitors' stubborn and resolute rearguard. Once again, they had to settle for a point after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain cancelled out Nacer Chadli's opening goal. "The positive is that we are unbeaten, but the negative is that we have missed four points from the quality of the games we have played," Wenger told a news conference. "We have to keep that unbeaten record and I think at some stage we will win the games instead of drawing. "Against Tottenham, we would have won had we not conceded the first goal." Wenger, though, must now contend with a deepening injury crisis. Influential midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta limped off on Saturday and have been ruled out of next Sunday's trip to Chelsea and the crucial midweek Champions League clash with Galatasaray. England midfielder Jack Wilshere is also a doubt after he injured his ankle in a challenge with Danny Rose. "I don't know how long they will be out but they will be out next week. I think Ramsey is a hamstring (injury), and Arteta is a calf. Wilshere is an ankle," Wenger added. "Suddenly, we are short because we lost three players today and let's not forget we had already two out on long-term [forward Olivier Giroud and defender Mathieu Debuchy] plus Walcott, that's six. Diaby is not ready, seven. It starts to become a worry."

Premier League - Wenger confident of upturn in Arsenal results
Arsene Wenger is confident Arsenal can rekindle the art of winning after a series of frustrating Premier League draws but their quest may be hindered by a "worrying" injury crisis.

The Gunners are unbeaten in six Premier League games this season but have won just twice, dropping a host of points from winning positions to leave them six behind leaders Chelsea.

Against north London rivals Tottenham on Saturday, Arsenal dominated possession but failed to break down the visitors' stubborn and resolute rearguard.

Once again, they had to settle for a point after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain cancelled out Nacer Chadli's opening goal.

"The positive is that we are unbeaten, but the negative is that we have missed four points from the quality of the games we have played," Wenger told a news conference.

"We have to keep that unbeaten record and I think at some stage we will win the games instead of drawing.

"Against Tottenham, we would have won had we not conceded the first goal."

Wenger, though, must now contend with a deepening injury crisis.

Influential midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta limped off on Saturday and have been ruled out of next Sunday's trip to Chelsea and the crucial midweek Champions League clash with Galatasaray.

England midfielder Jack Wilshere is also a doubt after he injured his ankle in a challenge with Danny Rose.

"I don't know how long they will be out but they will be out next week. I think Ramsey is a hamstring (injury), and Arteta is a calf. Wilshere is an ankle," Wenger added.

"Suddenly, we are short because we lost three players today and let's not forget we had already two out on long-term [forward Olivier Giroud and defender Mathieu Debuchy] plus Walcott, that's six. Diaby is not ready, seven. It starts to become a worry."
