Ozil calls on Arsenal to repeat 4-1 Liverpool lashing 1

Posted on August 24, 2015 by admin

I think that most of us Arsenal fans will be happy with any win over Liverpool tonight, whether it comes through a lucky goal bouncing in off someone’s bum or even a dodgy referee decision. Because after our shaky start against West Ham, Arsenal are already under pressure and this early game against a direct rival has become more important than ever.

But as well as all three points, our club record signing Mesut Ozil is looking for a real performance and a statement of intent from the Gunners. And as he talks about the way we demolished Brendan Rodgers and his players at the Emirates stadium, he has every right to feel confident that we can do it again.

Arsenal rocked by striker transfer snub!! 0

He has been the subject of a large number of Arsenal transfer rumours this summer and was certainly one of the strikers that the Arsenal fans were hoping that Arsene Wenger would add to the attacking options of the Gunners for the season ahead.

Plus it was thought that the Lyon and France international star Alexandre Lacazette would be more easily available and probably cheaper than other strikers linked with the club, such as Karim Benzema and Edinson Cavani. So the news reported by ESPN today is a real blow.

Arsenal BRILLIANT so Bring On Chelsea!! 0

Wow that was some pretty good stuff from Arsenal, especially when you consider that we were playing in the very tough climate and conditions of Singapore and against a decent Premier League side that is theoretically further along in their pre-season preparations than us.

However, Arsenal never gave them a sniff as we passed the ball around with slickness and accuracy. With the likes of Cazorla, Ramsey and Ozil in the centre of the pitch backed up by a fired up Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere on the flanks, Arsenal ran rings around our opponents and were cruising in a 3-0 lead thanks to Walcott, Cazorla and Ozil when they did get what turned out to be a consolation goal.

Arsenal to soon have ‘new Zlatan’ up front? 0

Posted on July 17, 2015 by admin

You have to admire the self confidence of the young France international striker I suppose, as even though he has just been released by Arsenal to go to Holland and play on loan for Ajax, Yaya Sanogo has compared himself to the former Ajax star Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

To be fair to Sanogo, he is only just 22-years old and has plenty of time to hone his game and start scoring the goals that would make the comparison a little less unlikely. He has the stature for it as well, being just an inch shorter than the Swedish international but he could do with bulking up a bit and getting a few tattoos while he is at it.

Arteta – The rewards are now coming to Arsenal 0

When Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta signed an extension, it may have come as a surprise to a section of the supporters. Not that the Spanish midfielder is unpopular with the fans but because this may have signaled Arsene Wenger’s intent on signing a new defensive midfielder.

With the captain extending his stay at the club by another year, it more or less put curtains on the hopes of any new defensive midfielder signings. Well, at least, temporarily till the point Wenger comes out with a concrete bid for any one.

Wenger explains why Arsenal did NOT want Sterling transfer 0

Posted on July 14, 2015 by admin

I am not sure whether the Arsenal boss would say the same thing in private, but speaking in public today he did not condemn what many football experts see as a hugely inflated transfer fee of nearly £50 million for Raheem Sterling.

Arsene Wenger is famous for his views on the crazy price of transfers in modern football but as he explained in a report on the Arsenal website, the owners of Man City can easily afford to splash top dollar on players, unlike Arsenal.

Is Ozil now ready to be Arsenal’s big-game player? 1

Posted on July 06, 2015 by Patrick

Former Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann has come out with an open plea to Mesut Ozil ahead of the new Premier League season.

Ozil signed for the Gunners from Spanish giants Real Madrid in a deal worth more than £42 million in 2013. The deal was supposed to be the clincher in many ways for the club. After so many years of being priced out of players by competition, Arsene Wenger got this one right. The signing of Ozil was accompanied with so much of hope and expectation from the fans, the moment it was announced.
The German world cup star had a difficult start to his life in North London but soon overcame the cobwebs. Slowly, he became an integral part of the squad and was also revered by the fans. His fellow German and former national keeper Lehmann though, has a word of advice.

Seaman says Chelsea have just GIFTED Arsenal the title!! 0

Posted on July 01, 2015 by admin

The former Arsenal and England international number one, David Seaman, has had his say on the club´s new signing Petr Cech, and who is better qualified to judge the impact that a top class keeper could have on the Gunners and our chances of getting back to the top of English football and winning the Premier League?

As reported by Sky Sports, the Arsenal legend seems very surprised about the decision by Chelsea to allow the Czech Republic glovesman to join a direct rival, especially when the keeper position is one of the things that has been holding Arsenal back and stopping us from becoming champions of the Premier League.

Arsenal COMPLETE transfer but is it Cech MATE? 0

Posted on June 29, 2015 by admin

Only time will tell just how much Arsenal will benefit from the signing of the Czech Republic number one Petr Cech from Chelsea, but if the thoughts of Jose Mourinho and John Terry are anything to go by, it could be just the chess move that the Gunners needed to capture the king of our London rivals.

Mourinho was quite clear that he did not want this transfer to go through and would have blocked his experienced keeper from joining such a close rival if it was up to him, just as he did with the proposed Demba Ba transfer. Terry has played in front of our new signing for almost his whole club career and he thinks that Arsenal could have just gained ourselves 12-15 points with this transfer move.

Porto striker has NOT snubbed Arsenal transfer 2

Posted on June 24, 2015 by admin

I know that there are quite a lot of Arsenal fans who thought that the Porto and Colombia striker Jackson Martinez was an ideal player for Arsene Wenger to target in the summer transfer window. The football media certainly talked up the potential move as there have been lots of Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with the prolific front man.

Over 30 goals a season over the last three years certainly seemed to make him a good alternative to our French centre forward Olivier Giroud, but now The Mirror has reported that the Gunners have been snubbed by Martinez and he has accepted a move to play in La Liga for Atletico Madrid.
