January 2007

A quiet month for Mart but as understudy to Manuel Almunia he did make the bench on five occasions. The Estonia No1 was named in the squad for the FA Cup ties against Liverpool and Bolton and the Carling Cup games against Rafa Benitez's side and Tottenham.

December 2006

After making his first Arsenal appearance in the 1-0 Carling Cup win at Everton in November, Mart will be disappointed by his lack of football in December. He did not feature in any first-team games and with no reserves games taking place it was a quiet end to 2006 for the Estonia No 1.

November 2006

Mart finally made his Arsenal debut in November. The Estonian No 1 came off the bench at half time in the Carling Cup clash at Everton and kept a clean sheet as the Gunners progressed with a 1-0 win. He was then named on the bench for the 3-0 win over Liverpool after Manuel Almunia replaced Jens Lehmann, who missed out with a throat infection. Mart also played a full 90 minutes in his country's 2-1 friendly win over Belarus.

October 2006

October was a quiet month for Mart. He had to settle for a place on the bench for the Carling Cup victory over West Bromwich Albion but got time between the Arsenal sticks in the Reserves' 2-1 defeat to Chelsea and the 6-0 defeat at Reading. The Estonian No 1 produced a string of fine saves for his country in a Euro 2008 qualifier against Russia, but could not prevent a 2-0 defeat.

September 2006

Mart made no first-team appearances for Arsenal during September but played a full 90 minutes and kept a clean sheet against Portsmouth in a Reserve game at Underhill.

August 2006

A quiet month for Mart. His substitute appearance in the friendly with Alkmaar constituted his only piece of Club action in August, although he did add to his tally of international caps as Estonia started their Euro 2008 qualifying campaign.

May 2006

Mart made no appearances in May.

April 2006

Mart made just two appearances this month - starting the reserves' last two fixtures of the campaign against Coventry City and West Ham.

March 2006

Mart is yet to make his first-team debut but played another three games for Neil Banfield's reserves against Charlton, Crystal Palace and Southampton.

February 2006

Mart made two appearances this month - both for Neil Banfield's reserve team against Portsmouth and Chelsea. He pulled off a string of saves over the two games, helping him to a clean sheet against the latter.

January 2006

Mart was an unused substitute in all four of the Gunners' Cup games during January. The Estonian started two games for the reserves against Ipswich and Leicester, producing a string of saves against the latter. He completed a permanent move to Arsenal during the transfer window.

December 2005

Mart was an unused substitute against Ajax and Doncaster Rovers during December. The Estonian international has yet to make his first-team debut for Arsenal.

November 2005

Mart was an unused sub in the Champions League wins over Sparta Prague and FC Thun as well as the Carling Cup win over Reading. The Estonian international still awaits his first-team debut.
