Is Viagra the reason for Giroud’s poor Arsenal form? 1

Posted on April 06, 2014 by admin

There is one interesting subtext to Arsene Wenger’s latest pronouncement on the reasons behind Arsenal’s poor record with players recovering from injuries. Gooners have long been aware that if Wenger says that an injured player will be out for a fortnight, then we may not see him for two months, etc. Either the Frenchman is not very good at forecasting, or the medical team is not doing their job properly.

After a thorough investigation by the club, they have suggested that players may be taking legal drugs in their private lives that may be affecting their form, with The Express claiming he is talking about “slimming aids, hair restorers or sex pills.”

This week a report emerged that Arsenal and Poland international goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny had made a personal plea submitting his desire for manager Arsene Wenger to stay at the club for next season. Now club captain and fan favourite Thomas Vermaelen has jumped on the bandwagon to show his support to Le Prof in his time of need.

Latest Arsenal transfer rumour better be a joke!! 0

Posted on April 02, 2014 by admin

There are always just a few players Arsenal seem to be linked with every single season. In previous years it was Ibrahim Affelay, in others Yann M’Vila but I think that one player that has stuck around more than most is Salomon Kalou. And it is that time again Gooners.

Arsenal’s title bid dies as newspapers look to another ‘summer spending spree’


Every year around this time talk concerning Arsenal in the newspapers and online changes from ‘will they win the title?’ to ‘who will they buy this summer?’

Almost exclusively since the failed title bid of 2007/08, Arsenal has become embroiled in late-spring transfer rumours as one season dies and hope of better in the next begins.

Today, it was revealed in the Telegraph that Arsene Wenger will be given the ‘largest transfer budget in the clubs history’ this summer – well, that’s this season finished with then.

Arsenal targeting another big German centre-back? 0

Posted on April 01, 2014 by admin

An update on a supposed Arsenal target has been made today with the chairman of German club SC Freiburg making a statement regarding one of their players. Matthias Ginter has been linked with the Gunners a lot in the past, as well as clubs such as Manchester United and Chelsea, however in the last couple of days, media in England including the Mirror has linked Arsenal to Ginter once again. There seemed to be nothing in the rumour however with the chairman of his club now making a reacting statement to the rumours, it adds some feasability to what could possibly be a very viable deal this summer.

Arsenal need Giroud and must not sell him this summer 1

Posted on March 27, 2014 by admin

There have been a fair few suggestions over the past couple of days that French international striker Olivier Giroud has been transfer listed by Arsenal Football Club in the last week. A string of bad performances over the course of this season has meant the club has apparently lost faith in him. There were also rumours that the move was because of his indiscretions in a hotel and his wife wanting to return to France.

Arsenal MUST forget about Suarez and support Giroud 0

Posted on March 04, 2014 by admin

Since the news broke from Liverpool owner John W Henry yesterday morning that Arsenal’s bid of £40 million plus one pound did meet and in fact exceed the buy out clause, I’ve seen numerous questions raised. Would Arsenal be in a better position had we signed Suarez? Why didn’t we go for another striker after Suarez failed?

I’ve even seen, `could Arsenal take legal action against Liverpool for their refusal to let Suarez go?` And although I cannot be certain in an answer with any of those questions, despite having a very strong opinion on some of them, I think the main thing Arsenal need to do is forgot about this for now.

WTF? Arsenal turnips going for an old Swede!! Is he top, top though? 3

It seems that the big transfer target for Arsenal today is Kim Kallstrom on loan. He’s currently at Spartak Moscow but appears to be on his way to Arsenal on loan for the remainder of the season. It’s been confirmed by most media outlets and the BBC’s Ornstein himself. Why are we trying to sign him?

He is 31 years old and had to be sold to Spartak because he was no longer good enough for Lyon in Ligue 1. He is even struggling to start for Spartak and yet he is somehow good enough to play for a team fighting for the title and playing in the Champions league. I’m not sure if he would even be available to play in Europe as Spartak qualified for the Europa League but were knocked out in the play-offs.

If it takes Podolski to get Draxler, should Arsenal do it? 4

Posted on January 23, 2014 by admin

Reports coming out of the transfer gossip columns suggests a new turn in the tables for Arsenal’s interest in young German international Julian Draxler. Draxler has been linked with the Gunners for a substantial amount of the January transfer window and before, but as of yet nothing on the subject seems to have changed. But with less than 10 days now remaining in the window, Arsenal fans will be desperately hoping Arsene Wenger can pull off another big money deal, even if it follows the fashion of the summer 2013 deadline day.

Could Vermaelen really be set to leave Arsenal? 0

Posted on January 21, 2014 by admin

There has been a lot of speculation surrounding Arsenal in terms of incoming players but not so much on any players going out of the Emirates. However to stir things up a little bit, rumours have heightened over the past few days that suitors for Thomas Vermaelen are beginning to build up.

The report that fellow London side West Ham United wanted to take the Belgian to Upton Park has already made it around the blocks after several media sites and national papers including the Daily Mail reported the rumours. West Ham manager Sam Allardyce was quick to point out that a move for the Arsenal defender on loan was an unlikely move, but it doesn’t mean that he won’t move away from the Gunners this January.
