Tomas Rosicky Taking Potshots at Gael Clichy and Gallas? Fact or Faction?

To be perfectly honestly, I refuse to believe a word of this nonsense. Rosicky casting blame on our French legion? Innocent until proven guilty, in my book.

Not to mention the fact that the UK media are notorious for pushing the limits of journalistic professionalism, although "professionalism" is a bit of a stretch in and of itself. Assuming his comments concerning last season's game against Birmingham were taken out of context, then we can move on and forget the whole issue.

But, hypothetically, if Rosicky was genuinely criticizing his teammates for last season's disappointment (as the game against Birmingham truly changed the face of the entire campaign), then is it a sign that our injury prone winger is want away?

Mere speculation, of course, but Rosicky's behavior could be a sign that he's ready for a change of scenery. His most recent comments lead the Gooner faithful to believe that he's content with Ashburton Grove.

Speaking to the official Arsenal website, Rosicky commented on the incident: "I would never blame individuals for the team not lifting a trophy. We are in it together. We win as a team and we lose as a team.

"As individuals, we all make mistakes and the message I was relaying to a Czech newspaper was that we are more experienced now and have learnt from last season.

"We came so close last year to winning something and we will be giving it our all to win a trophy this year."

Strong, reassuring words, but words nonetheless. His actions later on in the season will determine his personal future, but with the current crop of young gunners leading the line, albeit admirably, his experience will be sorely needed.
