WOW! Arsenal set up STUNNING striker transfer 0

Posted on November 28, 2014 by admin

I know that a lot of Arsenal fans do not expect Arsene Wenger to be looking to sign a striker or any attacking players when the January transfer window opens. The Gunners have much more need of cover and strengthening in other areas of the pitch.

There is a chance that a space could come up in the squad if the Frenchman decides to sell our Germany international forward Lukas Podolski. He might as well because he doesn’t seem to want to use him on the pitch after all. But Arsenal will still have many attacking options, which is why we are willing to wait until next summer to complete the transfer of the talented young striker Paulo Dybala, according to a Daily Star report.

Arsenal star Wilshere goes under the knife!! 0

The Arsenal and England midfield star Jack Wilshere was due to have a scan today to determine the extent of the ligament damage cause when the young Manchester United defender Paddy McNair went into a late tackle with his studa into Wilshere’s ankle last weekend.

And the news was not good and meant that the 22-year old needed surgery, so without further ado the young Gunner wqent straight under the knife. The good news reported by Arsenal.com is that the surgery was successful. The bad news is that Wilshere will now be out of action for about three months.

Arsenal captain AND Wilshere facing LONG injury spells 0

It is getting beyond a joke for Arsenal now! We get Olivier Giroud back early and Laurent Koscielny back in the squad just in time for them to be replaced by even more Gunners and it has been like this since the start of last season.

Including Abou Diaby, who Arsene Wenger denied having a new injury but is clearly still not fit enough to play, the Gunners now have 10 players on the injury list. Two of those, Mikel Arteta and Yaya Sanogo, joined it last night and with Ozil, Walcott, Welbeck, Wilshere, Debuchy, Szczesny and Ospina already out of action, it leaves the manager with a massive headache, as he made clear in his post match words reported by The Guardian.

It will not surprise many Arsenal fans to know that Arsene Wenger is facing a big selection headache going into a crucial game, because that has been pretty much the story of the last two years. The names of Jack Wilshere, Wojciech Szczesny and Olivier Giroud have been added to the list for the visit of Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, so how will the manager line up his Gunners?

Are these the 2 transfers Arsenal have ready for January? 0

Posted on November 26, 2014 by admin

Arsenal fans everywhere are crossing their fingers and hoping for some good business to be done by Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal scouting and transfer team when the January transfer window opens in about five weeks time. It seems that the club has money and the Frenchman has already admitted that he is looking to sign a defender at the very least.

Most fans, pundits and former players think we need more than that, however, with a tough tackling, workaholic, combative midfielder the top of most of their lists. And according to the latest transfer rumours, the Gunners may already have these two positions sorted out with the transfer of the players in a very advanced state.

The Arsenal and England international midfielder Jack Wilshere has not quite joined his central midfield team mate Abou Diaby on the injury front yet, but our young star must be cursing his luck today. Arsene Wenger has revealed that the injury picked up by Wilshere after a late challenge by the Manchester United defender Paddy McNair is not just a minor one after all, forcing the Gunner to face another lengthy spell on the sidelines, as reported by The Guardian.

Arsenal captain RIGHT to see BIG positives in Man United match 0

Posted on November 25, 2014 by admin

I must admit that I am with the Arsenal captain on this one, to a certain extent at least, as I feel that the Gunners were much better against Manchester United on Saturday. We were certainly better than the visitors who hardly deserved a point, never mind all three.

But Arsenal mistakes at both ends of the pitch were punished hard and the club is now in something of a crisis, which is why Arteta felt the need to point out the positives from the game, as shown in an Arsenal.com report. The Spanish midfielder was certainly as good in the centre of the pitch as I have seen him for some time, as he dominated midfield and controlled the pace of the game and helped Arsenal to push United further and further back into their half.

Arsenal set for another United battle as Vlaar ready for January transfer 0

Posted on November 23, 2014 by admin

Yesterday’s Premier League clash between Arsenal and Manchester United was being billed by some as the battle between two beleagured and injury hit defences and which one of the makeshift back lines could cope the better.

As we know, Arsenal lost that battle thanks to some more sucidal defending and some bad luck combined with our poor finishing and De Gea’s keeping at the other. And United have a number of first choice defenders due to come back off the injury list soon, so you would have to say our need for reinforcements in January is greater.

Why Arsenal season could be DESTROYED in three days! 0

That is three games in a row now that Arsenal should have won and didn’t. After getting out of jail in the last few minutes away to Anderlecht and then beating Burnley and Sunderland without conceding a goal, the Gunners seemed to be finally putting a run together, but that is long forgotten now and the run is of quite a different sort.

Unless we do something about it very quickly and up our game significantly, there is a good chance that Arsenal could be cut adrift from the teams chasing the top four Premier League spots. Liverpool and Tottenham are both yet to play and will go level on points with us if they win.

Even Rooney looked shocked at beating Arsenal 0

Even though Arsenal fans were maybe a little more confident than usual, we also know that Manchester United are always a tough team for us to beat and our form so far this season is hardly inspiring enough to give us much confidence.

And that was proved right as Arsenal somehow lost a game we dominated, once again. Even the United captain and scorer of their second goal on the break looked surprised that they had won as he gave his post match interview. And the stats certainly support him saying that they rode their luck.
