Arsenal will NOT sign both! So is it Casillas OR Ospina? 0

Posted on July 24, 2014 by admin

I thought that Arsenal would have announced the transfer of the Colombia international number one David Ospina by now, as it was reported that we had a greed a fee of around £3 million with his French club Nice and had sorted out the personal terms of his contract with the Gunners.

But still no announcement from Arsenal and it looks like the reason could be the captain of Spain and Real Madrid, Iker Casillas. The news from Spain, picked up by various media sources like Metro, is that the 33-year old is ready to quit his La Liga club as they close in on another World Cup keeper, Keylor Navas of Costa Rica.

Will Emirates Cup be last chance for Campbell at Arsenal? 1

After he tweeted just the other day about flying to London to fight for his dream of playing for Arsenal, I was pretty surprised to see that the 22-year old forward was not on the plane taking the Gunners to America for a short visit and pre-season friendly against Theirry Henry and his New York Red Bulls side.

Instead, it appears that the Costa Rica international stopped off in France for a final few days’ holiday and will join up with Arsenal for training next week. I thought the young Gunner would be desperate to start showing Arsene Wenger what he is made of, because I don’t think the Frenchman is totally convinced that Campbell can really do it for Arsenal in the Premier League.

2 BIG reasons to hope Schneiderlin WILL join Arsenal 5

There is a piece of Arsenal transfer news doing the rounds today which suggests that Arsene Wenger has given up his transfer pursuit of a top quality defensive midfielder, even though it was previously thought that the manager was looking to sign either Sami Khedira, Lars Bender or Morgan Schneiderlin.

The story goes that Wenger is going to rely on what he has already got in Arteta, Flamini and Diaby, while also getting Jack Wilshere to drop back and take on a more disciplined role in the Arsenal team. I don’t really see this happening, because it is the attacking and creative side of the game where Wilshere is best.

Why Giroud is STILL vital to Arsenal success 0

Many people seem to think that Olivier Giroud will see a lot less playing time in an Arsenal shirt this season, especially if the Gunners sign another striker. With Theo Walcott close to his Arsenal comeback and Alexis Sanchez having signed from Barcelona, the theory is that the big Frenchman could be used more as a back-up option, but I think that Arsene Wenger still sees Giroud as central to his system.

Arsenal’s best full-back to work with Sanchez? Gibbs or Monreal? 1

Should Gibbs be first choice at Arsenal?

From Winterburn to Cole to Clichy, the left-back position in the Arsene Wenger era is always seen as one of the most vital ones. There are countless of attacks that originate from Arsenal’s left hand side. Thus, a well-coordinated system between the left side full back and the left winger is extremely essential to the Arsenal offense.

Should Arsenal consider letting Serge Gnabry go on loan? 0

It is par for the course when you are a big club like Arsenal, fighting for the English Premier League, Champions League and two domestic cup competitions every season, that you need a big squad with lots of strength in depth. But there is a flipside to that as well.

With Arsene Wenger’s commitment to the Arsenal academy as well as the need to have a strong squad, you do get situations like the one with Carl Jenkinson in the last couple of years, when a promising player finds it tough to get the regular game time he needs to really push on and progress his football.

Have Liverpool REALLY beat Arsenal to Madrid player? 0

It was not very long ago at all that Arsenal fans could really stick it to our Premier League rivals on the red side of Liverpool. It was funny to hear the fans and former players from Anfield moaning about why the brilliant Chile international Alexis Sanchez snubbed them and decided he wanted to join Arsenal from La Liga giants Barcelona.

The Arsenal boys are back in town! COYG 1

After Arsenal began their pre-season games with a nice gentle opener against the Conference South team Boreham Wood, things are gradually building towards the serious business of our first Premier League game of the season at the Emirates against Crystal Palace on August 16th. And the Gunners will be desperate to avoid a repeat of the damaging defeat against Aston Villa last season.

So it is great to see the pictures on of the Gunners latest training session, as the first of the Arsenal players who were involved in the World Cup finals in Brazil are back with their club team mates at London Colney.

Which Defensive Midfielder do Arsenal fans want? 9

Posted on July 23, 2014 by Patrick

Since Patrick Viera left for Juventus in 2005, Arsenal fans have always wished for someone of his stature to protect our back four. Over the years, Arsenal has been linked with countless defensive midfielders. It was almost as if every single decent defensive midfielder was linked with a move to Arsenal.

That is how pressing the issue was as Arsenal were repeatedly exposed to quick counter attacking opposition. The fact that Arsenal were a team that is usually on the offense just made us more vulnerable to the counter attack.

Arsenal need to keep the momentum going into the new season 0

It has been a great past few months for Arsenal fans all around the world. We capped off a decent season with an FA cup victory, beating Hull City 3-2 in extra time. How sweet was that victory? It effectively ended a 9 year long trophy drought. For a club of Arsenal’s stature, that felt like total eternity.

Then, it was time for the world cup in the hot climate of Brazil. In this tournament, the Arsenal players did extremely well, with Alexis, Campbell and Giroud all having deep runs in the tournaments with their nations. More importantly, three Arsenal players- Ozil, Mertesacker and Podolski went on to lift the world cup at the end of the tournament for Germany.
