Have we seen Alexander Hleb's final game as an Arsenal player?

Can this day get any more depressing? Alexander Hleb - arguably our most improved player this season - today admitted a Football Association charge of violent conduct and will miss Arsenal's final three games of the season.

And with the Belarus midfielder being linked with a summer move to Italy or Spain, us Gooners might just have seen his last game in an Arsenal shirt.

Hleb was caught on camera slapping Reading's Graeme Murty during Saturday's game and although the referee took no action at the time, the FA used video evidence to charge the 26-year-old.

Isn't it funny how the FA use video evidence for certain things, but point blank refuse to use it for others?

Anyway, sour grapes aside, Hleb can now enjoy an early summer holiday, but lets hope that he doesn't intend to use the time to go house hunting anywhere near Milan, Barcelona or Madrid.

I want to keep Hleb, but his disappearance is not the end of the world. If we want to win trophies we need wingers who score goals. I don't want to see him go, but if we're going to win championships we need more goals out of the minutes he has played, whether that's him, Walcott, Vela or someone else.
