Since it's a slow news day so far, we (i.e. I) decided to inflict some Arsenal news upon all of you. Much like a head wound was inflicted upon our poor dear Cesc Fabregas.
It seems that while on international duty for Spain, playing a friendly against Azerbaijan, Cesc was brought down for a PK and slammed his head into the ground. As the wound was bleeding quite profusely, the medical team quickly removed him from the pitch and bandaged his head (don't worry - David Silva finished off the spot kick). Let's hope our boy is alright, and doesn't pick up any further knocks in the Confederations Cup.
As for the rest of the Gunners roster, it appears that Ajax defender Thomas Vermaelen will soon be a part of it, as a £10 million fee has been agreed to and all that remains are the personal terms of the contract. The move has infuriated Martin Jol, who had insisted that Vermaelen should remain with the club when he agreed to terms as gaffer last month. The central defender will possibly be replacing the aging (and cranky) William Gallas, and may be paired with Micah Richards if a proposed Toure-for-Richards swap is successful.
