Lukasz Fabianski has renewed his contract until 2016 after months of negotiations with Arsenal.

The Polish keeper whose contract was set to expire at the end of the season, rejected two previous offers before finally penning a three and a half year deal worth £3 million.

Fabianski has appeared three times this season and seems content to play second fiddle to compatriot and Arsenal number one Wojciech Szczesny.

Lucas Andersen has made to move to London after Arsenal activated his £3 million release clause.

The 18 year old Dane signs a five year deal on £20,000 a week after leaving Ajax just months after arriving at Amsterdam.

Andersen joined Ajax from Aalborg in the summer for £1.1m and impressed Arsenal in the 14 games played this season.
More great results and Andersen looks a great signing for just 3 million :)

Arsenal has blown their record signing with purchase of Liverpool prodigy Raheem Sterling for £36 million.

The English international was reportedly unhappy when Arsenal’s £30 million bid was knocked back with a £58 million price tag and the 18 year old’s discontent led to drop in price.

Sterling admitted it was a massive honour to receive such individual praise from a person such as Thierry Henry and that the opportunity to join Arsenal was too good to refuse.

Arsenal will pay Sterling £60,000 a week throughout five years after playing 24 games for Liverpool, scoring ten.

Sterling may not be the only high profile player to leave Liverpool this transfer window as Luis Suarez’s unhappiness at Anfield continues and Jose Mourinho’s reignited interest in Steven Gerrard pointing towards a possible move to Chelsea.
Great updates mate! This story looks great! And you're doing a great season so far! Keep it up! :D

(I can explain my fellow readers. Fabianski had an absolute howler and I had to chase the win with 10 men due to injuries. Wilshere hit the post and Giroud has a goal ruled offside – unfairly)

Theo Walcott will be out for four months following his injury in Arsenal’s FA Cup tie versus Hull City.

The England international was stretchered off minutes before his entry after an unpunished tackle from Hull’s Paul McShane and scans have revealed Walcott will be out of action due to a broken foot.

This will come as a bitter blow for Arsenal after the ever present winger appeared 29 times, scoring five and creating 15 goals.

The inform Walcott may not feature any more this season, prompting a tussle in between Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and new signing Raheem Sterling for the vacant spot.

Barclays Premier League Table

Barclays Premier League Player of the Month

Olivier Giroud

Barclays Premier League Manager of the Month


Arsenal’s EA SPORTS Player of the Month

Per Mertesacker

This month was so hard to choose as there were 4 or 5 that were amazing. Eventually it was down to Olivier Giroud & Mertesacker but I had to opt for Big Mert. There won’t be a back-up centre back in the world that is playing as well as the BIG Friendly German. Per has been immense this season and found some goalscoring form this month.

Norwich City – Steve Bruce – New Manager

Thierry’s Verdict“Who would have thought we would be 9 points clear of Manchester United in January at the start of the season? Even more so, we have a final to participate in. Another fantastic month for the Mighty Arsenal. Now to finish off Hull in the FA Cup and take the Carling Cup home. Arsenal are coming back!”
You always seem to be able to come by results, I envy that. Theo Walcott is going to be a big miss, but if any club can plug in someone for four months it's Arsenal.
