^Current expectation is that he will be in training and playing reserve games in September. He is back in London now after doing most of his physio work in Brazil.

Oh this is too funny. Apparently Arsenal negotiated a minimum 40% sell on clause when they sold David Bentley to Blackburn Rovers. If this £18m fee being suggested is accurate, Spurs will be contributing £7.2m to our transfer budget.

Arsenal sign Amaury Bischoff.

Another Youngling.

The French-born Portugal Under-21 international, 21, was a youngster with French clubs SR Colmar and Strasbourg before moving to Werder Bremen in 2005.

Bischoff, who can play either in the centre of midfield or on the right, was a regular at youth levels for Werder Bremen. His one senior appearance for the Bundesliga club came against Celta Vigo in the UEFA Cup in 2007.

And Man City have wrapped up the deal for Chelsea's Tal Ben Haim. Looks like a decent defence for City with him among the likes Dunne, Richards and Corluka. I thought Ben Haim was unfairly frozen out by Avram last season, so this should be a good chance for him to get back on track.

The Beeb are also reporting that Villa have stated Barry will be staying after all, as Liverpool have failed to meet a deadline Villa imposed on the transfer negotiations. Given how much revenue Liverpool need to generate to fund that purchase, I'd say it's very unlikely Barry will move now.

Which, unfortunately for Liverpool fans, means another season of Andriy Voronin!

I'm watching the Stuttgart vs Arsenal friendly. Our old mate Jens is not having a good time against Vela and Bendtner in the second half. Both have now scored, current score is 2-1 to the Arsenal.

Edit - 3-1. Jack Wilshire!

Just watched that. This Vela kids looks good. I think he's going to surprise some teams.

Bring on McLaren! FC Twente vs Arsenal in the Champions League qualifiers.

Liverpool got Standard Liege, Rangers (or Kaunas) got Aalborg or Modrica.

Barcelona will play Beitar Jerusalem or Wisla Krakow and it's Schalke 04 v Atletico Madrid.

I wanted it to happen, I shouted at the TV willing it to happen, but I never dreamed it would really happen. Should be a good one and I'd expect Arsenal to progress... all I'm saying is remember how McClaren and Boro always turned it on against the top 4 teams these last few years And hey, if McClaren loses... well, great, cos he's an idiot!

Schalke v Atletico is the tie of the round - I'm hoping I'll be able to see at least part of it somehow.

And Rangers may not even get there, because YET AGAIN they played a Euro tie at home and didn't score/concede. Again. After last season's run to the final I almost hope they get knocked out by Kaunas.

Days like this make me even more excited that the new season is only a few weeks away. (but isn't it weird the Euro qualifiers are before the opening matches of the Premier League this year?)

I hope so. That would be the highlight of the season.

In the UEFA Cup, Villa have drawn Hafnarfjordur of Iceland, whilst Man City will face Midtjylland from Denmark. Queen of the South have got a Danish team too - Nordsjalland. Almost certain progress, you'd have to say (although I won't want to guess what QOS are capable of).

We've only got two players in the first team squad older than 30.
Must be time to sell Almunia and Gallas then.

Seriously, you need a better keeper.

Almunia never once let us down last season. I can't say the same for Cech or van der Sar. I don't remember Almunia completely flapping at a ball, missing it entirely and leaving it for an opposition player to head in to an empty net like Cech did against us at the Emirates last season.

Perhaps we should be like Liverpool. Ten players for every position, never let the team settle, buy a complete new team every year and hope one of those signings turns out to be any good.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

besides the keepers on form last year were...

James, Friedel and Howard (all non top 4) but I think Wenger needs a central defender and midfielder far more than a keeper. I wish he would sign someone like Barry because I would like to see this title race be a 3 horse way but I feel the gunners are short of 2 players.

I'd definitely say James was my Premier League goalkeeper of the season.
