Daily Links: The Murphy's Law Edition

Remember how excited you were around 9:30 on Saturday morning? That was about five years ago it seems like. Everything that happened after Olivier Giroud's strike was unequivocally terrible. Not one to blame officiating, I'm totally blaming the officials. Regardless, it's time to move on, but not without one final reminder of everything bad about Saturday morning.
Spend some money, huh?

John Cross lays out it all out right here. I'll never join the Wenger Out brigade, but that doesn't mean I'm not furious with the Boss right about now either. (ESPN FC)

Interesting look here at how Jack Wilshere's role changed without Mikel Arteta in the lineup. Other good points about Danny Welbeck doing some of Ryan Giggs' dirty work to save the latter's legs. (ESPN FC)

A reported bid for Yohan Cabaye was rejected by Newcastle. I doubt there was ever a bid, but we'll see how it plays out. (The Telegraph)

The Independent is in on the game as well, randomly deciding to use Michu and Micah Richards as possible targets for Arsenal. (The Independent)

The Arsenal Supporters Trust has advised the board against extending Arsene Wenger's contract. I can't say I blame them either there are so many questions that no one is willing to answer. (The Guardian)

Nina Bracewell-Smith seems unhappy with the direction of the club under Stan Kroenke. It's my belief that most of the penny-pinching crap starts with our countryman, so it's nice to see someone else point the finger in his direction as well. (The Guardian)

Elsewhere, seems like Spurs and Liverpool are entering the final stages of a fight for Willian. The little winger currently at Anzhi Makhachkala seems to have tired of having to fly to home games. (ESPN UK)

The papers in the U.K. are doing their best to blame anyone and everyone for Saturday's debacle. Here, the Telegraph blames everyone at the back. (The Telegraph)

Injuries to Bacary Sagna, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Kieran Gibbs made Saturday's loss even more fun. It's still not clear how long any of them will be out. (The Independent)

In some good news from North London, the Arsenal Ladies are five points off the top with two games in hand over first-place Liverpool. At least someone at the club is enjoying some success. (The Independent)
