Man City win proves the need for Arsenal to BEAT Liverpool 1

Posted on December 20, 2014 by admin

Last season and even early on this season, the Arsenal fans would have been more than happy to come away from an away game with a big Premier League rival without a defeat to chew on. And after last season’s humiliating 5-1 drubbing at Anfield, we would have been even happier not to lose to Liverpool.

But a draw is simply not good enough for the Gunners tomorrow and the fact that Man City have just beaten Crystal Palace to increase the gap between them and Arsenal to 13 points just highlights that fact. I expect Louis van Gaal and his Manchester United team to go home with all three points from his trip to a depleted Aston Villa as well, although Benteke and Agbonlahor will hopefully do us a big favour and get past De Gea in the United goal.

Arsenal boss taunts Liverpool with Suarez – Sanchez comparison 1

Posted on December 20, 2014 by admin

Arsene Wenger may as well have just said, `look at what you could have won` as he compared the Arsenal and Chile international star Alexis Sanchez to the former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez ahead of the clash of the two clubs in the Premier League at Anfield tomorrow.

Suarez did not score against the Gunners on that fateful day last season when we come home to London with our tails between our legs after a painful 5-1 thrashing, but he was a vital part of their team and it has only become more and more obvious this season, as the scousers lurch from one bad day to another disaster, that Brendan Rodgers has failed miserably in his attempt to replace the Barcelona bound Uruguayan striker.

Wenger – Arsenal deserved Liverpool defeat last season but…. 1

Arsenal were massacred 5-1 in this fixture at Liverpool last season, and were hit with the sucker punch of conceding four goals in the first 20 minutes, but Arsene Wenger believes that it was just down to both team’s performances on the day and is unlikely to be replicated this time around.

Liverpool, with Luis Suarez, came out of the blocks like greyhounds and bamboozled the Gunners with their attacking prowess, and Wenger is happy to admit that.

Why Arsenal will beat Spurs to Morgan Shneiderlin 1

Posted on December 20, 2014 by Patrick

Morgan Schneiderlin has made no sectret of the fact that he wanted to leave Southampton in the summer, and he has certainly not changed his mind. Arsenal and Tottenham were both expected to be the main suitors for the French international.

Tottenham were reported to have made a derisory £10 million offer for the best-performing defensive midfielder in the League in the summer, but with the Saints already angry that the Spuds had nicked their manager Mauricio Pochettino, the South Coast club dug their heels in and forced Schneiderlin to honour his contract….for now.

Wenger admits worries that Arsenal hitman could have joined Liverpool 1

Posted on December 20, 2014 by Patrick

Arsene Wenger pulled off one of the biggest transfer coups of the summer when he very quickly persuaded Alexis Sanchez to join Arsenal, but he has now openly admitted that the negotiations were far from simple and he was worried that Sanchez would have been the obvious replacement for Liverpool when Luis Suarez joined Barcelona.

“Sanchez, he looks like he is made for the English game,” Wenger said on ESPN. “Sanchez has settled very quickly. But Sanchez has a kind of game that is instinctive and tough.

“They (Sanchez and Suarez) have similarities. They are South Americans, they are provoking players, they go with the ball.

Shaqiri to snub Liverpool for SHOCK Arsenal transfer? 1

Posted on December 19, 2014 by admin

Maybe now that Arsenal have not been drawn to face the German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in the knockout stage of the Champions League, for a change, then their manager Pep Guardiola will not mind selling us one of his players.

And by all accounts, the Switzerland international midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri is not really a part of the Spanish manager’s plans for the club’s future anyway. But I did not realise that he was even a possible transfer target for the Gunners either, until I saw the Metro report that claims not only is Arsene Wenger keen on signing Shaqiri, but that the Frenchman is closing to completing the deal to bring him to the Emirates stadium in January.

Balotelli OUT of Arsenal clash and Liverpool have injury problems too! 0

Posted on December 19, 2014 by admin

Arsene Wenger will surely feel confident that Arsenal can come away from Anfield with all three points on Sunday. The manager was probably already rubbing his hands together at the prospect of adding to Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers misery this season, but will be relishing the trip to Anfield even more now.

Sky Sports have reported the good news, for Arsenal, that Rodgers will have to do without his summer signing Mario Balotelli for the clash with the Gunners. The Italy international has received a one match nan from the FA after his dozy post on social media managed to offend Jewish and black people alike.

Have Arsenal won transfer battle with BIGGER bid for `new Xavi`? 0

Posted on December 19, 2014 by admin

One of the latest transfer rumours claims that Arsenal have already had one offer turned down by the Croatian club Dinamo Zagreb for their talented young midfielder Marcelo Brozovic. If the 22-year old really is good enough a player to deserve his nickname of the Croatian Xavi then I can easily understand why Zagreb are reluctant to let him go.

The fact that Brozovic also has a long term contract with the club, lasting until the summer of 2019 means that they are under no pressure to let him leave, but now the Metro have reported that the Gunners have increased their offer and that the transfer now looks like going ahead.

Why Arsenal MUST let this defender leave 1

Following the rapid progress of Hector Bellerin at Arsenal, there is a lot of speculation in regards to the future of Carl Jenkinson, who was loaned out to West Ham United as a result of Arsenal’s capture of Mathieu Debuchy and Callum Chambers. As a result of the Jenkinson’s promising start to life at Upton Park, several media reports suggest that the Hammers’ boss Sam Allardyce has been in contact with Arsenal in regards to make the loan deal a permanent transfer.

BANG! Ramsey to set to miss ALL Arsenal festive fixtures? 2

Posted on December 19, 2014 by admin

Arsene Wenger was like a ninja or a commando in the way he conducted the Arsenal pre-match press conference this morning. The boss in and out before the gathered reporters had much of a chance to get settled but he did have time to drop a bomb on them and us Arsenal fans.

BOOM! The Frenchman casually dropped the bad news that our Wales international midfielder Aaron Ramsey is not likely to be back for the Premier League home game against QPR on Boxing Day as previously thought. A report by The Mirror reveals that Wenger is seriously concerned that Ramsey will not actually be able to help the Gunners in any of the festive fixtures.
