But Kenyon stated that they have full faith in Selby to put up a brilliant fight and challenge against these teams.

UEFA Officially Announce The 2009/10 Season Groups For The Championsleague.

Earlier today, Arsene Wenger was sacked from the Arsenal pole and was immediately replaced by Dan Griffin, the reason behind this was that he had failed to win any silverware in the past 5 years. But today, Griffin's first season in charge of Arsenal and he is already competing in 4 cups, hoping he can win atleast 2. Arsenal were seeded in group 2 and have been drawn in Group C along with Italian giants Internazionale, Argentine Rulers Boca Juniors and American side, New England Revolution.

Arsenal have been tipped to come runners up in there group, but don't be surprised if they win there group as Griffin has experience in these types of competitions and knows what it takes. He has never gone further than the quarter finals though, and that was with Lyon. Griffin has said he aims to beat all the teams at the Emirates and away, except for Inter Milan were he hopes he can atleast get a point at the San Siro/Guiseppe Meazza.

Is It Arsenals Year This Year?

The rest of the ''Famous Five'' are also in the Uefa Championsleague, Chelsea being amongst the likes of Fiorentina, Santos and Marseille, Conor Bowen being in the same group as Villarreal, Bordueax and River Plate, Rob Hardwick wrapping up the top 4 in England being in a group with Roma, Shakhtar Donetsk and Olympiacos. Man City manager Nick Justice completes the top 5, as he is competing in the Uefa Cup or the new name Uefa Europa League, as he has been drawn against a not so known side Vitoria De Guimaresis in the first round of the Europa League.

Arsenal Declare Interest In Renato Augusto And Marcio Rafinha.

9130_1219852543.jpg18281_1242494250.jpg

Brazillian Wizkids Top Griffin's Transfer Shortlist.

Just moments ago, Dan Griffin released a statement to the Arsenal fans on there official website that he had made bids for Brazillian wizards Renato Augusto and Marcio Rafinha. Bringing players like them to the Emirates is an absoloutely brilliant move to make and will certainly strengthen the cup side. They would both fit in perfectly to Arsenal, and carry on the theme of buying youngsters for the future. Renato is currently talking to the Leverkusen boss over the possibilty of moving to England, while Griffin is still negotiating over Rafinha with Jake, the Schalke boss.

Griffin has stated that he will do his utmost to sign these 2 wonderkids and bring out the best of them in North London. ''If i suceed in bringing these players then i will be overwhelmed and certainly means it could be that Arsenal are complete for the next few seasons. If i were to get these players along with Gilardino and Jovetic, then i would really consider that Arsenal would no longer need to sign anyone new, and they could focus on bringin silverware back to England.''

EDIT: Final post tonight, Match Preview for first game of season v Wigan to follow tomorrow afternoon.

Arsenal Swoop For Young Talented Korean Left Back, While Ade Saga Finally Ends.

3 players were spotted in Heathrow airport at around 7.30PM earlier and they were believed to be Stevan Jovetic, Alberto Gilardino and Park Joo-Ho. The 3 have reportedly signed for Arsenal permanently on a four and a half year contract, Emmanuel Adebayor has moved to Florence, Italy with his wife and 2 kids to complete the signings of Jovetic and Gilardino, £5million has also been compensated to the North London outfit, that £5million has suspectedly been used to complete the swoop of Park Joo-Ho, a Korean Left Back with much talent and was reportedly being tracked by top European clubs such as Man. Utd and Real Madrid.

The players numbers are yet to be decided and the number of Arsenal shirt sales have rapidly increased since the new signings. A good sign for Arsenal in the financial view of it. Griffin has stated that there will be no more signings at Arsenal, unless another club bids for one of Arsenal's players and then we will look to the possibility of a replacement, otherwise that is all for the transfers within Arsenal Football Club. The season kicks off tomorrow and Arsenal make the trip up to Wigan where Gilardino could make his debut.

Defensive Dinamite: Yaya Toure will become a huge hit at United

Breaking News: Defensive Midfielder Yaya Toure has joined Manchester United from Barcelona.

The deal saw Paul Scholes and Fraizer Campbell plus £15M go to Barcelona.

The news was a shock to Yaya who will now play against his brother Kolo currently at Arsenal.

Bowen who was over the moon with the deal said Yaya will partner Michael Carrick in the center of midfield.

After Yaya's plane was cancelled, the medical took longer than expected, but the deal was finally completed in the end.

After the deal was complete Bowen spoke to MUTV for a quick update.

"Our attention now turns to a right back, which this team is lacking, im willing to offer 2 players for a RB abover 89 rating,

If we sign a right back that will be us (Manchester United) done in the transfer window"

Gold Championship 62 - League Match 1 Preview

86_1240776261.jpg Wigan Athletic V Arsenal 1_1237749663.jpg

With Arsenal signing 3 new players and 1 out in the pre-season transfer window, Wigan have also been busy too, although there are no big names coming in to Wigan, they have signed three players with huge potential for the future. Arsenal are believed to have entered the race to sign Alou Diarra.

Home Team News

Wigan are likely to field a 4-4-2 formation with Rodallega and Zaki upfront, Chris Kirkland looks set to start after he faced a late medical over a little worry that he could have suffered a season threatening injury, but luckily it was just a knock and he is set to start. The JJB looks to be packed to the rafters tomorrow night when Arsenal travel up the M6 to Wigan. Around 20,000 tickets have been sold ahead of the game tomorrow night.

Away Team News

It's a guessing game at the moment for whos going to start upfront for Arsenal, could it be Arshavin and Van Persie? Gilardino and Arshavin? Gilardino and Van Persie? or could even Jovetic start. It looks most likely that Gilardino and Eduardo are set to start together. New signing Park Joo-Ho could get a place on the bench aswell. Denilson could be rewarded a place next to Fabregas in the heart of midfield after he was given a new 5 year contract at the Gunners.

Bulgarian Central Midfielder Set To Join Arsenal.

Arsenal boss has finally slammed the transfer window shut for the Gunners for this pre season. After stating that he would bring in one more player, it looks like Stilian Petrov is that man, coming in for £4million and losing Mikael Silvestre and Lukas Fabianski. Lukas and Mikeal won't really be missed in the Arsenal setup because they were just going to rot on the bench and not be happy so there better off at Villa.

Petrov will be the captain of the second team, but may just creep ahead of Denilson's starting Xl place in the Arsenal first team if Denilson isn't careful. It'll do the lad good though, being highly followed by such an experienced player will put Denilson under pressure and hopefully will up his game, but i hope he doesn't feel too much pressure and completely fall apart.

Good Start For The Red Devils

carlos_tevez_wayne__365169a.jpg

Amazing Duo: Carlos Tevez (left) and Wayne Rooney (right) ran The Hammers defence into the ground

Tonight Manchester United travelled to Upton Park to face a tricky game again West Ham United.

With new manager Bowen trying a new formation; Bowen was still happy his team could win.

West Ham's manager went with the basic 4-4-2 and only 1 new player in the squad, Luis Jimenez with his 1st Premiership start.

Upton Park - 32,889

icon_medal.gif - Wayne Rooney

The game started well with both team's having 50-50 possession, the Red Devils started to take control of the game.

Man United took the lead on the 11th minute, Wayne Rooney rasping home a screamer.

West Ham were shocked and wanted to get straight back into the game and with the crowd 110% behind them it was a slight advantage.

It was soon 1-1 Swiss Winger Valon Behrami smashing in a half volley from the edge of the box.

With the game at 1-1 it was all to play for, West Ham were looking confident after equalising.

12 minutes after West Ham pulled level, United were leading again, French left back Patrice Evra with a perfect volley into the back of the net

Half time wistle soon came after an eventful 1st half.

Man United started the second half well and looked like they would get the 3rd goal but good keeping from Robert Green denied them.

The 2nd half was quite and time ticked down and with 4 minutes left till 90 minutes it was 3-1!

Old West Ham striker Carlos Tevez with a great solo run and a perfect finish. Everyone was applauding that.

So after a perfect start to the Premiership season, Man United's attention now turns on the SMFA Champs Cup.

Wednesday 13 July: Bordeaux (A): 20:00PM

Chelsea Run Rampage over London Rivals

Saturday 11th July 2009

Stamford Bridge (42,055)

Referee:

flags_of_Croatia.gif Edo Trivkovic

21_1203862898.gifVs.80_1217330011.jpg

Chelsea 3-1 Tottenham Hotspur

Ricardo Carvalho (22)

Salomon Kalou (33)

David Bentley (51)

Joe Cole (57)

Chelsea started their league campaign with a local London derby to Tottenham Hotspur, and after being fairly quiet in the transfer market, Chelsea's only Summer signing Stephane Sessegnon started along the likes of Frank Lampard and Joe Cole in the Chelsea midfield for the season opener. Tensions ran high before the game with off the field action already taking place before the match. But the football did the talking to day with Chelsea being victorious over their London rivals in a 3-1 victory. Chelsea opened the scoring on the 22nd minute, with unsettled Central Defender Ricardo Carvalho who had been linked with a move to Internazionale this week scored from a set-piece to put Selby's, blue and white army ahead. Salomon Kalou then netted his first of the season after latching onto a through ball from Joe Cole, to make it 2-0 to Chelsea. However, as both teams were on the attack, due to on the field tensions, Jose Boswinga launched in on Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe, thus resulting in a red card. However, Chelsea stayed in demand till half time with Chelsea having full advantage of proceedings in the game, but early in the second half an early threat from Tottenham on the 51st minute occured when former Arsenal and Blackburn midfielder David Bentley bagged one for Spurs, and attempted to cause a late upset at Stamford Bridge. However, on-form winger Joe Cole put any worry or threat to ease, after netting his first goal since returning from a knee injury, and Cole did it in some style using acrobatics in an overhead kick. So Chelsea have got off to a flying start, winning their first game under Selby's reign, and based on other results have gone second with only Burnley ahead of them. And Selby would like it to stay this way stating that he hopes come game 38 of the league campaign, all managers in the race to the title who have the squads to last it are below Chelsea.

Chelsea Starting XI: Cech, Boswinga, A.Cole, Terry, Carvalho, Lampard, Sessegnon, Cole, Drogba, Kalou, Anelka

Robin Van Persie sent Arsenal to a flying start on 25 minutes when he smashed home a rocket from the edge of the box sending the Gooners a goal up in their season opener. Just a minute into Arsenal's one goal advantage, Qigan equalise when Lee Catermole poked home in a goalmouth scramble. Later on in the half Robin Van Persie was booked for misconduct. 60 minutes gone and its time for Stevan Jovetic to make his mark in English football and he did just that sending Arsenal a goal ahead again and what a debut goal it is from 27 yards out he sent a venomous shot into the roof of the net, well played young boy. 6 minutes later Jovetic was devastated that Wigan had equalised and had then dented Arsenals hope to win the match. Denilson nearly won it for the Gunners when he smahsed the ball onto the bar at 88 minutes played. Full Time; Wigan 2-2 Arsenal

Young Brazillian Star On His Way To Germany.

Having spent just 3 years at Arsenal, Denilson felt it was time to move on and got in touch with the Arsenal manager handing in an official transfer request. It was then Schalke boss Mr. J Alexiuk made an official bid for young talented Brazillian. Dan Griffin then accepted the bid and gave Schalke the time and space to speak to the Brazillian and reports coming from the Veltins arena are that the two parties have come to an official agreement and the Brazillian is seto to join Schalke tomorrow morning.

27 year old German Central Midfielder Jermaine Jones will be joining the Gooners to help make the deal be lowered in cash, German winger Albert Streit will join fellow team mate Jermaine Jones to go and play football for Arsenal in North London. A Further £1million will be compensated to the North London outfit. It is believed that Albert Streit will go back to Schalke on loan though until Schalke get replacements.

Hat-trick hero Tevez celebrating his goal

Tonight Manchester United ran riot at Stamford Bridge in a 'so' called friendly match.

Adam Selby's Chelsea made a perfect start to the league winning by the same score as United beat West Ham.

The game was always going to be a entertaining one and United made it just that.

Chelsea 2-7 Manchester United

Stamford Bridge (10,156)

Chelsea started the game on the front foot, going close a couple of times.

With 16 minutes played Chelsea were 1 up, Salomon Kalou with a well placed header.

United responded by takeing control of the game...the only problem is they couldnt score.

With 10 minutes left of the 1st half Nemanja Vidic made it 1-1 converting after a mistake by the keeper.

2 Minutes later it was 2-1 United, Carlos Tevez smashing the ball into the back of the net with venom.

Half Time

After the restart Chelsea were looking for revenge after going 1 up then to 2-1 down.

They got there 2nd goal 3 minutes after the break, Salomon Kalou with his 2nd and Chelsea's 2nd.

Before Chelsea even had time to settle down it was 3-2 United, Dimitar Berbatov with a trademark strike!

United didnt look back then, 13 minutes later it was 4-2, Dimitar Berbatov with his second goal gifted by the keeper.

United had the game in the bag and it was only a matter of time before more goals came!

With 9 minutes to go Carlos Tevez got his 2nd after seizing on an error by the Chelsea defence.

A minute later!, United had another goal Ji Sung Park finishing off a slick passing move with a clever finish.

35 second later, it was 7-2!....Carlos Tevez getting his hat-trick with a diving header at the back post.
