Why Arsenal might get Suarez for £40m after all 0

Posted on January 28, 2015 by admin

What a great transfer coup this would be for Arsenal, and a good hard kick in the teeth to Liverpool at the same time. The Anfield club really made the most out of their chance to put down Arsenal Football Club after our attempt to sign their Uruguayan international striker Luis Suarez in the summer of 2013.

Arsene Wenger famously offered one pound over £40 million, believing that this would trigger a release clause in the controversial forward’s contract. Suarez thought the same and wanted to make the move to north London but eventually left Liverpool for Barcelona and Spain’s La Liga for a lot more money last summer.

New Arsenal signing set to start after permit granted? 2

I must admit that I was worried about Arsene Wenger perhaps being a bit over confident about getting a work permit for the new Arsenal defender Gabriel Paulista. We were told at the weekend that the Gunners and his Spanish La Liga club Villarreal had agreed the terms of the transfer and the deal was set to be completed today or tomorrow.

It would not be the first time that Wenger and Arsenal did not get the decision they expected from the football authorities and so I feared that they might stick to the letter of the law and not allow Paulista a work permit as he had no full international caps with Brazil.

Arsenal fringe players Sparkle and suggest good times ahead 0

It might be a bit harsh to call Mesut Ozil, Tomas Rosicky and Theo Walcott fringe players for Arsenal, because a lot of fans will count those three as some of the very best and most talented Gunners that Arsene Wenger has available.

The fact is though, that for various reasons they have not been a big part of the season so far for Arsenal. Well they certainly put down a marker today and gave the manager the sort of headache that football pundits always say is the sort of problem that you want. All three scored, all three played well, so they will want to know the reason if they are dropped for the games coming up.

Paulista transfer CONFIRMED! Is that it for Arsenal? 2

Posted on January 25, 2015 by admin

Arsenal fans are not used to this sort of thing from Arsene Wenger during the January transfer window, as we are usually left with shredded nerves and no fingernails on the transfer deadline day, feverishly checking the internet every few minutes and hoping that the Frenchman has something up his sleeve.

This year the Gunners boss seems to have got his work done with almost a week to spare, as an ESPN report reveals that the transfer deal to bring the Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista to the Premier League has been done. It has still to be confirmed officially by the Arsenal website but the report explains that Paulista’s La Liga club Villarreal have confirmed the move, which just needs a medical to be done before it is all wrapped up.

Proof that Arsenal have COMPLETED Paulista transfer? 4

Posted on January 24, 2015 by admin

After the Arsenal boss was uncharacteristically honest and open about the ongoing negotiations with the Spanish club Villareal about their defender Gabriel Paulista, it did seem to be highly likely that the deal was close. Arsene Wenger, quite rightly, likes to keep his transfer plans as quiet as possible until they are done.

But the Frenchman also admitted that the Gunners and Paulista’s current La Liga club were not in agreement over the transfer fee, although he did seem hopeful. But there is strong evidence today that the two clubs have come to terms and so the Arsenal fans will hopefully soon have official confirmation that the versatile defender is heading to north London to sign on the dotted line.

Arsenal set to stun Chelsea with De Bruyne transfer? 1

Posted on January 22, 2015 by admin

It has been a painful 10 years or so for Arsenal fans. After the Gunners really hit the heights by winning the Premier League without a single defeat in 2004 and lifting the FA cup in 2005, we had to wait nine long years for another trophy. Even though we reached a few finals, including the big one of the Champions League in 2006, Arsenal fans expected more.

And the same has been true of the league, despite being in a great position a few times like last season and in 2008 when Eduardo’s leg break saw us falter at the final hurdle. And the team that has made the most of our struggles, in more ways than one, is Chelsea.

Arsenal have AGREED TERMS for defender transfer 0

On the same day that Arsenal officially announced the completion of the transfer deal for the 17-year old Polish midfield prospect Krystian Bielik, in a deal thought to be costing the club around £2 million, the Arsenal fans could have a second signing to celebrate.

According to a Metro report, Arsenal have agreed terms with La Liga’s Villareal. The report has news from the Spanish media that we will pay the release clause of 20 million for their brilliant Brazilian centre back Gabriel Paulista.

Wenger and Arsenal finally set for offer to solve DM problem 0

Posted on January 20, 2015 by admin

With Arsenal having been hit by the bad news about the club captain Mikel Arteta suffering a setback to his recovery from an ankle injury, Arsene Wenger’s need to use the January transfer window to strengthen the Arsenal squad in this area was made even more clear.

It was widely reported that the Frenchman was already looking to sign a player to cover us there, so you would think that the boss was even more determined. But at the same time, we have seen the emergence of Francis Coquelin who was recalled from a loan spell with Championship club Charlton and has been getting better and looking more composed at the heart of Arsenal’s midfield ever since.

DEAL CLOSE? La Liga star confirms Arsenal transfer talks 0

Posted on January 19, 2015 by admin

Some Arsenal fans have reacted with frustration and are exasperated by the throwaway comments made by Arsene Wenger yesterday about his search for a defender, as reported by Arsenal.com. But I would take the manager’s comments with a pinch of salt if I were you.

Wenger said, “We are still looking, yes.

“Unfortunately no [progress], but if you have a good idea, you can text me somewhere to the club!”

Arsenal starting XI for Man City with NO Ozil or Walcott 1

Posted on January 18, 2015 by admin

The Arsenal boss all of a sudden has a different sort of problem on his hands, but it is the sort of problem he would have loved to be struggling with all season, tough decisions about which players from a strong squad to put in the starting line-up.

With Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott, Laurent Koscielny, Kieran Gibbs and Calum Chambers all back in contention, Arsene Wenger has some big calls today and one of the biggest is on our club record signing. In another game I think the boss would have brought our German midfielder back in, but away to Man City is too big a game to risk a rusty Ozil, especially when the players he might replace are doing so well.
