Wenger said: "If I'd stayed at home he wouldn't be here now."
He refused to elaborate on that but added he initially wanted Welbeck on loan with an option to buy.

As suspected, those comments are out of context. Wenger was defending his decision to travel on deadline day and was saying the move happened because he met someone in Rome who he might not have met at home.

Wenger really is a massive tit. Welshit is better than what they had and frankly i think its quality that the Arsenal board have gone over wenger's head and signed a striker.

Not sure if thatís in reply to me, but I was trying to say that Wenger did want him. If heíd stayed in Britain he mightnít have met the contacts that helped make the deal happen, so he might have missed out, but the opportunity arose when he was abroad so he went for it.

Thatís his version anyway, even if itís a bit far-fetched.

Eh? You sure you're not interpreting it incorrectly? He went to meet the pope didn't he, and obviously that was much less likely to be happening in London.

I don't think the pope has contacts in Danny Welbeck's camp although I might be wrong.

Haha, maybe it didn't, can't find a mention of it anywhere.

I'll post the article on Monday, but having just read a load more, the gist is still the same, he wanted to sign Welbeck. Only difference being, the Pope maybe didn't broker the deal.

Dortmund absolutely blitzed them, should have been a hammering. Defies logic how Merty is still playing at such a high level.

Merson was on Sky Sports and said,

You don't hear the word Gillion much outside of Man U transfer negotiations.

From The Independent's match report:



For the second time in two matches Danny Welbeck illustrated why his finishing is considered below par for a top forward by failing to convert a one-on-one with a goalkeeper.

With the match goalless and Arsenal under relentless attack, Welbeck managed to drag Aaron Ramsey's clever pass wide with just Roman Weidenfeller to beat.

It was a key moment and the £16million signing from Manchester United, who had other chances to open his Gunners account, only enhanced concerns over his record in front of goal.

Had he scored it would have been a grave injustice, however, given that Arsenal's back four were tormented throughout in a display that will see Arsene Wenger face renewed criticism for refusing to sign defensive reinforcements over the summer.

At times they were comically poor with Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker fully culpable, although they were offered little protection by Mikel Arteta, who was also exposed by the quick wits of Dortmund.

And in front of Arteta, Mesut Ozil once again drifted around aimlessly, contributing nothing until his second-half withdrawal.

Lol.

I didn't watch the match so can;t judge truly, however if it really was that 1 sided how the fuck did it end up 2-0.

Clearly 1 eyed bollocks.

If that's the case their striker doesn't deserve a 1.

You can't have every single player on the team play great or above, without exception, and everyone have average or below on the other team, without exception, and have that scoreline.

EDIT:// It does sound like I need to find a replay mind

Dortmund were awesome last night, they cut through Arsenal time and time again. Unbelievable work rate without the ball. Immobile & Aubameyang were outstanding, Mkhitaryan missed some sitters.

Arsenal were genuinely lucky not to get absolutely slaughtered. And Bild are being very very kind giving Merty a 4.

Arsenal: Mesut Ozil out for up to 12 weeks with knee injury
BBC

The 25-year-old midfielder, who is on international duty with Germany, played 90 minutes in Arsenal's 2-0 defeat at Chelsea on Sunday.
But he arrived at the German camp with a problem in his left knee and an MRI scan in Munich on Wednesday showed damage to the joint.
The Gunners are already without injured midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta .

A statement on the German Football Association website read: "The MRI examination revealed a partial rupture of the outer band of the left knee joint.
"The treatment is... six weeks of immobilisation of the knee joint. Mesut Ozil is likely to be [out for] 10 to 12 weeks."

Apparently he'd previously spent about 30 days injured in his entire career until he joined Arsenal.
