Arsenal youngster Jay Simpson has recently signed a long term extention with the Gunners in what both parties hope will be a wonderful relationship.
Simpson has made an appearance in all three of the League Cup games(Carling Cup) scoring a goal against the full strength Wigan in what was a promising game for the young 20 year old.
Lets hope this young player sticks to his long term contract as so many players from various clubs love to sign a deal and leave within 12-18 months just because of the extra cash they can suck out of the system. Lets hope Jay is not one of these and develops into a first team player for the Gunners in the coming years.

The Dubious Goals Panel has ruled Gael Clichy’s deflected effort against Stoke as a goal and Samir Nasri’s goal against Manchester United to not have hit Gary Neville with full credit going to the Frenchman.
Cesc Fabregas has started his rehabilition by taking a break in Barcelona and has been recieving daily calls from the man who was involved in the tackle Spanish team mate Xabi Alonso here are his comments on the incident:
Since the Liverpool game, Xabi Alonso has called me every day,” said Fabregas ahead of the Portsmouth game. “He is very worried but I told him that he had nothing to do with it – he just tried to win the ball, the same as me, and these things happen as I say. As a footballer who is lucky to be able to play and enjoy what I do every week, you always take the risk that injuries can occur.”
On the aftermarth:
“When the tackle came in last Sunday I felt pain in my knee and when, as soon as I started walking, I couldn’t put my foot on the ground so I knew it was not good,” he said. “I was wishing and praying that nothing was broken but unfortunately it was. This is football though, worse things can take place in life and sometimes in your career these things will happen so this is my turn.
On how he considers himself lucky:
“I’ve been very healthy in the last five years, always being able to give 100 per cent in every game for Arsenal – I’ve missed very few games in that time so I have to be happy for everything and also not forget that this injury could have been a bit worse, so I have to feel fortunate for that as well.”
