Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen admits he feels like he's join the "circus" over all the controversy swirling around the Gunners at the present time.

Arsenal have resembled a soap opera this season, with accusations of diving against Eduardo da Silva, their Croatia striker, a ludicrous own goal from Abou Diaby in the 2-1 defeat against Manchester United last month and the madness of Emmanuel Adebayor against his former team-mates at the City of Manchester Stadium on Saturday.

"I experienced it all with Ajax,” Vermaelen, who joined the North London club for an initial fee of £8.45 million during the summer, said yesterday.

“There was a lot of things going on in the clubs, everyone was always looking at it. So it’s all nothing new for me. Sometimes it is a big circus.”
