Wenger Hints at a Signing and Pre-Portsmouth Talk

Wenger has hinted about the possibility of signing a defensive midfielder before the end of transfer window. He says: "Defensively, number-wise, maybe we could still do with one. I've spoken to 10 managers and all 10 are looking for centre-backs or defensive midfielders. "It looks like the offensive players are the most-paid but at the end of the day, in the modern day, all the managers I speak to ask me the same thing. 'Do you know a player somewhere?'" I really hope he finds and signs one because injuries has already started making us light in all areas and one more player won't hurt. It is an understatement to say Arsene isn't angry about Walcott appearing for the Under-21….even though he says he isn't angry. He said: "I'm not so much angry as frustrated. I cannot see the logic of it. Now both England and Arsenal have a handicap. It's why I didn't want him to play for the under-21s. After that we were under pressure to rush him back and he got hurt again." I believe we haven't heard the last of this saga. Pompey are coming to Emirates today, not to watch us but to play us. just like Burnley against Manchester United, people have already given us the three points. If these present crop of Arsenal players have learnt anything at all, it is not to toy with opposition from the lower ends of the table - remember Hull last season (that incident still gives me the chills). I do hope we put up a good performance today and win comprehensively. Pompey have not beaten the Gunners since a 5-4 victory in March 1958. Also, they haven't won on Arsenal turf since September 1955. Fingers crossed.
