2013-06-12 07:10#111486 gambit84 : Great moves! You got rid of unuseful players... and most of all you signed Falcao! El Tigre is THE BEST! He scored more than 50 goal in a season and a half with Milan... WONDERFUL! :D

PS I paid him 54M€... Grrrrr!!! ;)

I guess my advantage was Falcao was at Monaco, Ligue 2 & not a good team like Atletico in yours. Moutinho wants to leave them too
Adan another good buy - transfers should win you the league - well done on 2500 views

Arsenal’s EA SPORTS Player of the Month

Olivier Giroud

A fantastic month for Giroud and solely Giroud as he seemed to be the only player in good shape this month with 3 important goals for us in 2 games.

Thierry’s Verdict: A poor month for us and we need to kick on with results in September with the confidence boost we gained from the Watford game. Ideally, we should have won all our games but we just wasn’t good enough to do so.

Tottenham Hotspur’s manager Andre Villas Boas has backed his side to finally overcome Arsenal this season after a thrilling start to the season.

The Lilywhites have won 5 out of their 5 games so far this season including a 1-0 win over Arsenal in a season opener and now find themselves top of the Premier League while the red side of north London have just one win so far this season in 10th place.

Tottenham has not finished above the Gunners since 1995 and last season were piped to the league title by their very own rivals but Villas Boas is determined to end Arsenal’s domination this season.

“We’ve had a fantastic start to the season and Arsenal hasn’t. We improved in areas we needed to and a very strong squad so I believe this is our year.

“For many years we have been close, sometimes better but unlucky but we are much stronger than them as a team and I think we made that clear when we beat them at the Emirates.

“We’ve got confidence on our side and are ready to mount a serious title challenge.”

Arsenal’s EA SPORTS Player of the Month

Per Mertesacker

What a fantastic month he’s had right here. 4 games, 6 goals and every single one of them has been vital for us. We have struggled so far but if we end up victorious, we have these goals from big Per to thank.

Thierry’s Verdict: We started badly but we have slowly picked ourselves up and ended on a high. We’ve got to keep this form up now.
I can see what you mean for city jees they want the title back. Good luck (7-3 mwa ha ha)

Arsenal’s EA SPORTS Player if the Month

Per Mertesacker
Once again, the team wasn’t really there in spirit and Mertesacker is taking full advantage to show just how good he is. A fantastic month both offensively and defensively in which Per has easily been our player of the season so far.

Thierry’s Verdict: An on and off month once again and we dropped points where we shouldn’t have but we are right amongst the Champions’ League table and are looking good for progression in what is a very difficult group.

Radamel Falcao is being linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium after another poor month at Arsenal.

The Colombian cost Arsenal £23 million this summer but has only managed to find to the net once in 10 games in which he performed below par in all.

His performances has drawn criticising from all those who were expecting him to challenge the top goalscorers in the league but instead finds himself sliding down the pecking order.

The 27 year old is hasn’t started been called up for Arsenal’s last 3 games and reports have begun to link him with a move back to Atletico Madrid.
