Hello Folks!!!

I am going to embark upon a club changing journey with Arsenal FC, with an exciting squad and the addition of Ozil, we will be a fighting force this season, and I hope to lead us to Glory!
Looking at the squad, It's immediately obvious that there's a huge amount of dead wood that needs to be removed, I am going to have to look into that straight away, but first of all I have the choice to inform the board whether or not I think I can win the title this year... Why not! I'm going for it and making sure I get those extra funds available!
I am going to play a 433 formation with a lone striker, I am using an attacking mentality with a fluid approach, maintaining a high tempo and playing wide as my priorities, I want to make sure Arsenals speed merchants such as Walcott and the Ox can make a statement this season!
Maybe add some pictures and BBCodes to make the story more interesting and better looking :)

Link for the BBCodes :
So far in the transfer windo I have brought

-Baines 20.5 mil
-Sneijder 12.5 mil
-Ronaldinho 825k

-Ramsay 30 mil (to chelsea)
-Park Chu Young 3.2 mil (to Atlanta)
-Frimpong 550k (to nottm forest)

I had to shore up the weak LB position so Baines was brought in, I felt that although ramsay is a brilliant player, Sneijder is a more experienced player so he was replaced, I brought in ronaldinho on the cheap as he has always been a brilliant player and his stats are exceptional!

Pre seasons games weren't particularly great, here are the results..
vs Blackburn Away- 2-2
vs Inverness CT away- 2-2
vs Cheltenham away- 3-3
vs HSV home- lost 1-2
vs florentina- won 3-2

so not overall a brilliant start, but with all our new players, we needed time to gel...

First game of the season... Man city away! tricky!

So a 1-1 draw with man city wasn't too bad!!!! Ozil got his first on his debut while negredo the other.. per mertesacker MOM

Plus this week I have signed Pato from Corinthians for 18 mil as back-up for giroud.

PS, how do I add screenshots?
Our midweek champions league playoff against PAOK was good, we beat them 2-1 at home, wilshere and sagna scoring both sides of the hour... next up PL liverpool at home, A game which I'm expecting arsenal to win.. I think Pato can start up front instead of Giroud, Sneijder and wilshere to play CM together for the first time too!
So 2-1 against Liverpool so a good win in the bag!!!!!! Ronaldinho had a goal disallowed,POM walcott scored the first before sneijder scored a screamer just before half time, liveropools schniederlin pulled one back on 88 mins so a good win. Pato was extremely quiet on his debut, hopefully he'll play up to his 18 mil price tag!
Into europe!!!!!

So the second leg of the playoff with PAOK we won 2-0, ozil and an own goal from their keeper ensured we went through. 7.26 mil in the bank! next up 16th placed fulham!
