"It was a very difficult summer because half the dressing room wanted to leave. You're preparing for a season where you don't know who's going to come in, the players who are staying are asking themselves what's going on at the club, you've got a pre-season tour of Asia. It was extraordinarily difficult. What saved us is that we're a club that are extremely solid and united. Other clubs would surely have gone to pieces in those circumstances."

-- Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger says his team is steadily recovering its poise after a desperate summer that saw half his players wanting to leave. A 2-1 win over Sunderland last weekend put Arsenal back into the top half of the standings. (Guardian)

    if they're so "solid and united," how come so many people wanted to leave? Is it just because they're cheap? (or is it because other clubs are profligate?)
