Arsenal’s Season 2018/19 Review & What We Can Hope For Upcoming Months

An away victory against Burnley on the last day of the Premier League 2018/2019 was not enough for the Gunners to secure the fourth position. They ended just one point short behind the city rivals Tottenham Hotspur, but there was still hope to win a ticket to UEFA Champions League by winning Europa League.

Arsenal FC have faced Chelsea in the big final in Azerbaijan, but once again, underperformed when it mattered the most. The match was lost, which means the squad from the Emirates will once again battle against tier two teams in the Europa League.

Arsenal player ratings against Napoli with two players 9/10

The boys did excellent against one of the best teams in Italian football and fully deserved the win over Napoli, in fact, the only real disappointment is that we never won by more.

The change in performance from the Everton game was huge, this was an Arsenal display that was a pleasure to experience, they played great as a team unit with some great individual performances.

Arsenal Ratings.

Petr Cech – 6

Cech only gets a six simply because he was never really called on to make any significant saves or for that matter, make any howlers.

Barcelona speak out on Dembele to Arsenal rumours

The Barcelona coach, Ernesto Valverde, has put an end to speculation we could make a summer move for winger Ousmane Dembele, stating he remains a key component of his squad.

Signed for an jaw-dropping £135 million last summer as a replacement for Neymar, Dembele has failed to live up to expectations at the Camp Nou and failed to make any impact on the first team, partly due to his long list of injuries.

And that led to speculation we could swoop in and offer him an £88 million escape route, with Emery reportedly in the transfer market for a fast, direct winger that will take the defender on rather than stand-him up and pass it, thinking of a certain Alex Iwobi.

How David Ospina is exposing the ignorance of the Premier League millions

The World Cup, apparently the pinnacle of football achievement, can often prove to be quite a leveller when it is compared to the English game, and that is no more apparent than at Arsenal.

David Ospina will stand guard for Colombia against England, knowing that whatever heroics he pulls off will have little impact on his own future. The 29-year old signed for Arsene Wenger in 2014 for £3m but has never managed to force himself into the first team picture.

Arsenal fans told identity of First January transfer target?

This might not be the most thrilling of Arsenal transfer rumours, but it does at least have the benefit of coming straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak, so we do not have to ask the usual question of whether it is just a made up piece of fake news from the always inventive football media.

With this one, though, the player in question, who is a 19-year old midfield star called Berkay Ozcan who is currently playing in second tier of the German Bundesliga with Stuttgart, has declared that he does expect to be signing for Arsenal, although it may not be as soon as the next transfer window in January.

Arsenal in for Draxler or Mahrez transfer! Which is best?

I think that most Arsenal fans have now reached the stage, with just hours of the summer transfer window to go and just two signings made by Arsene Wenger while all our rivals are spending shedloads of cash on all sorts of players, that we would be happy with just about any new signing.

I would certainly be pretty happy if the Gunners were to add one of the two attacking wide players being heavily linked with a move to north London by the football media today, The Leicester City and Algeria star has been linked with Arsenal and many other clubs and seems very close to completing his transfer to somebody, with the BBC reporting that he has been allowed to leave his international team mates to finalise the move.

Lemar transfer to Arsenal back ON as Liverpool target Ox?

One of the biggest, or at least the most often reported, Arsenal transfer rumours of this summer was the one about the young Monaco and France international star Thomas Lemar. There were apparently at least two bids and possibly more from Arsene Wenger according to the rumours, but as the French club appeared unwilling to deal after selling a number of their top players the story died down.

So Arsenal fans were understandably upset to hear that our Premier League rivals Liverpool could be about to sign the talented winger this week. Now that move looks off as well, with The Mirror reporting that Jurgen Klopp will instead focus on getting our own Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain after the England international apparently turned down a transfer to Chelsea in favour of Anfield.

Arsenal offered Sterling but DEMAND Aguero in Alexis transfer deal

There could still be quite a few twists and turns to the story of Alexis Sanchez and his much debated possible transfer away from Arsenal this summer, but it is looking increasingly like the Chilean will be leaving the Emirates stadium before the current window closes, despite the many assurances of Arsene Wenger to the contrary.

If that is to be the case and our striker is going to sign for a direct Premier League rival then the Arsenal fans are not going to be happy, which may be why Wenger and the board are going to push to get the best possible deal out of City, and according to a Metro report that means the Argentinean striker Sergio Aguero moving the other way.
