Football News

Arsenal fans, hello and welcome.

Monday’s are difficult, let’s not try and sugarcoat that age-old fact. Here at GiveMeSport though we believe they can be helped by a little serving of something sweet. It doesn’t come any sweeter than football news.

In a bid to rid yourself of the beginning-of-the-week blues why not watch the video above for the latest gossip and information. Alternatively you can read on below.

Cech on his headgear

The sight of Petr Cech wearing protective headgear has become the norm since the Arsenal goalkeeper suffered a fractured skull in 2006, but the 33-year-old has now revealed he wants to play without it.

The former Chelsea stopper admitted he would feel more confident if he wasn’t forced to keep the headgear on though doctors have forbidden him from taking to the field without it.

Now, we haven’t got any neurological expertise per say, but we’ll probably side with the doctors on that one.

"I would be more confident if I had it off. If you like it or not, the helmet affects your surroundings," Cech said.

"You have your ears covered and it makes hearing worse.

"But the doctor has forbidden me to take off the helmet. If I did, I would not pay insurance."

Ozil's new deal

Elsewhere, Mesut Ozil is to be rewarded for his fine recent form with a brand new contract, according to reports coming from over the weekend.

Word is that Arsene Wenger is looking to tie down the assist king for his peak years - no doubt that’s a story that will develop more over the coming weeks.

Wilshere gives injury update

And, lastly, Jack Wilshere has confirmed that he isn’t going to risk hurting himself in the long-run by rushing back to action, despite the fact he is making a speedy injury recovery.

The England international is expected to make his comeback shortly after the turn of the New Year but has said he is determined not to make the mistake of returning prior to being completely ready.
