Debate – Arsenal’s next manager? 3

Posted on July 28, 2014 by admin

When Wenger leaves, who should take over at Arsenal?

Arsene Wenger’s name is respected throughout the whole of the footballing world. The legacy he has left as being Arsenal’s longest serving manager is second to none. He is also currently the longest serving premier league manager, amassing more than 1000 games for the club. Arsene is always seen as the Professor. His knowledge about the game and dedication to building for the future has left Arsenal to become one of the most successful footballing models in all of world football today. However, we all know Arsene will not stay at Arsenal forever. He has to leave eventually, whether it is to another club or retiring from being a manager. This will leave a huge void for the gunners to fill. Who should take over the gunners when Arsene is done?

New Arsenal keeper is better than Casillas AND Szczesny! 0

I definitely think that Arsene Wenger has done the right thing with the latest Arsenal transfer news, bringing in the 25-year old David Ospina from the French club Nice. The Colombia international was one of the outstanding performers between the sticks at the World Cup finals, not just with eye catching saves, but a great all round game.

There were Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with a possible free move for the Spain and Real Madrid star Iker Casillas, but the Madrid captain apparently wanted around £100,000 a week. And looking at the stats comparison on Squawka.com between them, Wenger certainly made the right choice. In fact, not only does Ospina come out better than Casillas, he beats our own Wojciech Szczesny as well.

I don’t know what the hold-up has been, as the reports about David Ospina and his transfer to Arsenal from Nice have been around for a while. It may have been something to do with these Arsenal transfer rumours from Spain about the Real Madrid keeper Iker Casillas, but if there was ever any chance of Arsenal getting the 33-year old Spain international this summer, they seem to be over.

Because, as reported by the Daily Mail, Arsene Wenger has revealed the the Colombia number one Ospina will be playing for the Gunners in the season ahead. Even though the transfer is yet to be announced on the official Arsenal website, the Frenchman would not be talking about the 25-year old World Cup star unless the deal was sealed.

Have Arsenal signed the wrong Saint in Chambers? 7

Although it has not been announced on the official Arsenal website yet, it appears that Arsene Wenger has wrapped up another first team transfer for the Gunners. The player who will soon be joining Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy in moving to the Emirates, is 19-year old Calum Chambers from Southampton, in a deal that will cost Arsenal around £7 million according to a report in The Mirror.

The reason I wonder whether Arsenal have gone for the right man from the Saints, is that the teenager is mainly known as a right back and there are at least two of his team mates at Southampton that I think would have been better signings for Arsenal.

Arsenal will NOT sign both! So is it Casillas OR Ospina? 0

I thought that Arsenal would have announced the transfer of the Colombia international number one David Ospina by now, as it was reported that we had a greed a fee of around £3 million with his French club Nice and had sorted out the personal terms of his contract with the Gunners.

But still no announcement from Arsenal and it looks like the reason could be the captain of Spain and Real Madrid, Iker Casillas. The news from Spain, picked up by various media sources like Metro, is that the 33-year old is ready to quit his La Liga club as they close in on another World Cup keeper, Keylor Navas of Costa Rica.

2 BIG reasons to hope Schneiderlin WILL join Arsenal 18

Posted on July 24, 2014 by admin

There is a piece of Arsenal transfer news doing the rounds today which suggests that Arsene Wenger has given up his transfer pursuit of a top quality defensive midfielder, even though it was previously thought that the manager was looking to sign either Sami Khedira, Lars Bender or Morgan Schneiderlin.

The story goes that Wenger is going to rely on what he has already got in Arteta, Flamini and Diaby, while also getting Jack Wilshere to drop back and take on a more disciplined role in the Arsenal team. I don’t really see this happening, because it is the attacking and creative side of the game where Wilshere is best.

Should Arsenal consider letting Serge Gnabry go on loan? 0

It is par for the course when you are a big club like Arsenal, fighting for the English Premier League, Champions League and two domestic cup competitions every season, that you need a big squad with lots of strength in depth. But there is a flipside to that as well.

With Arsene Wenger’s commitment to the Arsenal academy as well as the need to have a strong squad, you do get situations like the one with Carl Jenkinson in the last couple of years, when a promising player finds it tough to get the regular game time he needs to really push on and progress his football.

Have Liverpool REALLY beat Arsenal to Madrid player? 0

It was not very long ago at all that Arsenal fans could really stick it to our Premier League rivals on the red side of Liverpool. It was funny to hear the fans and former players from Anfield moaning about why the brilliant Chile international Alexis Sanchez snubbed them and decided he wanted to join Arsenal from La Liga giants Barcelona.

Which Defensive Midfielder do Arsenal fans want? 9

Since Patrick Viera left for Juventus in 2005, Arsenal fans have always wished for someone of his stature to protect our back four. Over the years, Arsenal has been linked with countless defensive midfielders. It was almost as if every single decent defensive midfielder was linked with a move to Arsenal.

That is how pressing the issue was as Arsenal were repeatedly exposed to quick counter attacking opposition. The fact that Arsenal were a team that is usually on the offense just made us more vulnerable to the counter attack.

Why Arsenal signing Benzema could really be back on! 1

Posted on July 22, 2014 by admin

It will take a string of events to go the right way for Arsenal, but the amazing transfer of Karim Benzema from Real Madrid could actually be back on soon. I really hope it happens, because with Alexis Sanchez already signed, the arrival of the France international would surely give Arsenal the single most deadly strike force in the Premier League. And with our talented midfield and miserly defence, that would probably see us Gooners celebrating the Premier League title next May, if not a double.
