Wenger lets back-up Arsenal DM Coquelin stay on loan!! Is he MAD? 0

Posted on November 28, 2014 by admin

I cannot believe that Arsene Wenger has not decided to recall the French midfielder Francis Coquelin to Arsenal. Instead, the manager has allowed the 23-year old midfielder to stay with the Championship club Charlton for another month.

I know that Coquelin has only made one appearance for the Gunners so far this season, when he filled in at left back in the Capital One Cup defeat to Southampton and I agreed with sending him on loan in the first place. It will give the versatile Frenchman some valuable competitive football and some experience of the rough and tumble of English football, but we might need him.

Is Jack Wilshere turning into Arsenal’s new Diaby? 0

Posted on November 28, 2014 by Patrick

Arsene Wenger has seen the young terrier Jack Wilshere go down with another ankle injury, but the Arsenal boss is still hopeful that the England midfielder will have a long and successful career, despite Wilshere playing less than 100 games since he made his debut six years ago.

“We knew he would have surgery,” Wenger said. “He’s focused to come back and finish the season well.

“His injury is a consequence of a very bad tackle that was not malicious. He deals very well with tackles and kicks but nobody would’ve dealt with that tackle.

Arsenal have NO enquiries and will NOT sell Podolski 0

Arsene Wenger spoke about many things in the pre-match press conference ahead of Arsenal playing away at West Brom in the early Premier League kick-off tomorrow. And as well as admitting that he was looking to bring at least one defender into the The Gunners squad, the Frenchman was asked specifically about the future of Lukas Podolski at Arsenal.

As reported by Arsenal.com, Wenger was asked about whether any clubs had made enquiries about the German international striker, claiming that Podolski himself had said that Wolfsburg were interested. But the Arsenal boss denied this outright and said that no one had enquired after the 29-year old.

Arsenal almost sealed FIRST defender transfer already!! 0

Posted on November 28, 2014 by admin

This is not going to be the only defender transfer that Arsenal complete before the winter transfer window closes at the end of January, but it will be one down and will hopefully give Arsene Wenger and his transfer team more time to get the rest of their business done.

There have been Arsenal transfer rumours in the media recently suggesting that Wenger has been looking at signing two defenders in January. One of them is apparently going to be an experienced centre back, perhaps already playing in the Premier League, who can come straight in and cover for either Per Mertescker or Laurent Koscielny. The other is likely to be a young player with lots of talent and promise with a bright future ahead of him.

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

Posted on November 27, 2014 by admin

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

Posted on November 27, 2014 by admin

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.
