Freddie Ljungberg to MLS, Amsterdam Cup

Mornin all. It's been very very quiet on the Arsenal front lately. Tomorrow we start the Amsterdam Tournament, which matches us up against Ajax and Sevilla. It should be the final preparation for our Champions League match next Wednesday against FC Twente. We'll be seeing what will most likely be our starting eleven out there Saturday or Sunday. So if you want to know who will be starting in midfield, then you will be able to find out this weekend. Jack Wilshere is again traveling with the squad to Amsterdam, so we'll have another chance to see the youngster work. I love watching him. He might already be in my top three players, although Sagna, Clichy, and Cesc are a hard trio to break into.

Recently released by West Ham, former Gunner legend Freddie Ljungberg is looking for work, and it looks like he may sign with Major League Soccer. I have to say I'd enjoy it if he came to the US. While it's not the best league to watch, it would make it more watchable with Freddie in the mix. I've tried to get into the MLS supporting Colorado (because they have that agreement with Arsenal) but I just can't do it. If Freddie came though I'd have a team to root for, so that'd be good. Either way, I wish him good luck. He's just had some really mad luck with injuries for the last couple of seasons and it hasn't worked out well for him after leaving Arsenal. So best of luck to him, no matter what he decides to do.

Justin Hoyte looks like he could be on his way to Middlesbrough after their sale of Luke Young to Aston Villa. While I am personally a Hoyte fan I think it's probably best if he goes. He's good cover at all of the defensive positions but he will never be a first choice player at Arsenal. He can start week in, week out at Boro and I think he'll be happier being able to play more. He's an Arsenal man through and through though and has been a top class professional during his time here, so I wish him all the best regardless of what happens.

I don't really have that much else to write about honestly. Predictions for the tournament? I say we beat Ajax 3-1 and beat Sevilla 3-2. Adebayor will score in both games. You heard it here first.

Please remember to sign up for the ArseNole Fantasy Premiership League, of which the winner will receive a brand new home kit with any name they want on it. It takes about 2 seconds to sign up so there really is no reason not to. We're going to watch all the matches anyway so just play some fantasy along with it, have some chatter and smack talk, and maybe win a new kit.

There should be a new podcast sometime soon I just haven't had a chance to get it done yet. Let me know what you wanna hear on the next one. Cheers.

I just got done watching the Ajax/Arsenal replay on ATVO. We looked pretty sloppy at times, but it was an exciting game.

I liked how Arsene dropped RVP into the midfield late in the game, I play RVP in midfield all the time on XBOX LOL

And I'm officially worried about FC Twente!
