At first I had nothing witty to call this post, then yesterday evening I stumbled across a gem of a link. I already posted it to the BG Facebook page last night, but in case you missed it: Bobby and Santi have a good laugh at Tottenham fans. Of course, the Spuds took it about as well as they took Theo's "2-0" gesture in the FA Cup, forcing Cazorla to later tweet an apology. (Telegraph)

According to a new study, Arsenal are now the best team at developing home-grown talent. The Gunners have 10 home-grown players still at the club, while another 17 are at teams in Europe's top-5 divisions. (Metro)

In related news, the Gunners have appointed Andries Jonker as head of the academy. The Dutchman is currently assistant manager at Wolfsburg, and will take over from Liam Brady when the Irishman's contract expires at the end of the season. (BBC Sport)

Arsenal have rejected an inquiry from Rafa Benitez's Napoli for Thomas Vermaelen. The club captain has managed just 3 Premier League starts this season. (Daily Mail)

Arsenal scouts have reportedly been watching Lille defender Pape Souare. The Senegalese is under contract with the French club until 2017. (Metro)

The Gunners are likely to miss out on rumored target Mirko Vucinic. The Juventus striker could be part of a swap deal with Internazionale's Fredy Guarin. (Mirror)

Arsenal will battle Zenit St Petersburg for Benfica's Rodrigo. Zenit had agreed a £25 million deal with the Portuguese club earlier in the window, but Rodrigo has stalled on the move. The Real Madrid product spent some time on loan at Bolton in 2010. (Metro)

Arsenal's official club store is reportedly selling a t-shirt featuring Theo's "2-0" gesture. However, it doesn't appear on the club's online store, so could be a fake. (Metro)

Mesut Ozil has received some criticisms for "being off form". Here's why he isn't. (Grantland) [Scroll down to the last section]
