Arsenal transfer train gets moving with DOUBLE swoop! 0

Posted on August 30, 2014 by admin

Can anybody shed some light on the mysterious world that is the football transfer window? We Arsenal fans have suffered more than most in recent years, mainly because Arsene Wenger was trying to buy a Ferrari with a couple of boxes of water damaged umbrellas and some vouchers for the gift shop.

What I really don’t understand is why we have to wait until the last few days to get the deals done. Wenger, and the other managers to be fair, have had all summer to get the players they want but there is always this last minute scramble. As long as we get what we need, I suppose, it is alright, and it seems as though the Gunners are about to really get going with the last few pieces of transfer business.

Torino WILL sell Cerci but he’s the WRONG man for Arsenal 0

Posted on August 30, 2014 by admin

Most Arsenal fans, if not all, are hoping that Arsene Wenger pulls off a little bit of transfer magic in the next few days and brings in a quality centre forward to cover for the injured France international Olivier Giroud. The Prof is naturally keeping his plans under wraps but if the recent Arsenal transfer rumours are anything to go by, then Alessio Cerci is one of the players in the frame.

And if that is the case, then Arsenal have been handed some good news, with the Daily Star reporting that the president of his current club Torino has declared that he would sell the 27-year old forward, for the right price of course.

Wenger WILL NOT bring Radamel Falcao to Arsenal 1

Arsene Wenger has admitted that Olivier Giroud is unlikely to play for Arsenal again this year,but has ruled out bringing in yet another striker into the fold, as he has many budding centre-forwards already on the books.

“Giroud had surgery today from a broken tibia and while it went well, he will be out for three to four months, competition-wise,” said Wenger after the Bediktas game. “He will be capable of playing again in the Premier League end of December but it may be the beginning of January before he is competitive at the top level.

Should Arsenal have bought Demba Ba? 0

Posted on August 29, 2014 by Patrick

It seems, in the light of Olivier Giroud’s injury, that perhaps Arsenal should have been quicker to sign up a dedicated striker aerlier on in this transfer window.

One of those possible arrivals was Chelsea’s Demba Ba, who Jose Mourinho stopped from going to the Emirates last summer. Instead Besiktas snapped him up and he very nearly scuppered Arsenal’s place in this season’s Champions League proper.

He was asked if he had any regrets about not joining Arsenal. He replied: “I’m happy at Besiktas,”

“How close did I come to joining Arsenal? As close as you and me here, but it’s past. I just look forwards.

Champions League draw to force Arsenal into signings? 0

Posted on August 28, 2014 by admin

Okay I know that Arsenal did not get the group of death this time in the Champions League group draw, but the Gunners always make it out of the group anyway. The important thing for the club this season is to win the group, which is generally down to the two best teams in it.

So drawing the Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund could hardly have been worse. Arguably, the French champions PSG with all their money and players would have been tougher, but just look at how well Jurgen Klopp’s side have done in recent years and you will see that Arsenal are really up against it.

Zigic to Arsenal transfer rumour a wind-up? Apparently not!! 3

Posted on August 27, 2014 by admin

When the Arsenal transfer rumours first started to suggest that Arsene Wenger was considering the giant Serbian striker Nikola Zigic as an emergency replacement for the injured French forward Olivier Giroud, I didn’t even bother getting annoyed.

After all, there was no way there could be any truth to such a daft rumour was there? I mean, if Wenger wanted a striker who was just a big, useless lump, he would have offered Nicklas Bendtner a new contract wouldn’t he? The only possible explanation would be that Wenger’s dog had chewed up his notebook with all the possible striker in it and just left the final page intact. But even then he would have gone for Bobby Zamora.

Have Arsenal already agreed deal for Reus transfer? 1

Posted on August 22, 2014 by admin

The summer transfer window could still hold some interest for Arsenal fans, with Arsene Wenger having hinted that he is still looking to strengthen the squad, especially on the defensive side of things. But according to the latetst Arsenal transfer rumours, we could soon have another top class forward at the Emirates as well, in the shape of Marco Reus.

The Germany and Borussia Dortmund star is one of the most exciting attacking players in Europe, but he unluckily missed out on winning the World Cup this summer after picking up an injury in the build up. That, according to a Metro report, is the only thing that stopped Arsenal signing him earlier on this summer, because the 25-year old had already held talks in London with the Gunners about his move to the Premier League.

Stats suggest Rabiot IS the right transfer for Arsenal 0

Posted on August 21, 2014 by admin

Arsenal have been linked in transfer rumours with plenty of central midfielders this summer, and in every transfer window that I can recall. They are not always players seen as a typical defensive midfielder, often being more all-rounders like Sami Khedira, which Arsene Wenger’s use of Mikel Arteta in the role suggests is more likely.

The player that seems to be favourite to sign for us at the minute is Adrien Rabiot of PSG. I must admit that I knew very little about the 19-year old, but as some reports in the papers are claiming that the deal is nearly done, I have been doing a bit of research, using the comparison matrix on Squawka.com.

Arsenal on transfer alert for TWO players after Arteta injury! 0

Posted on August 21, 2014 by admin

Arsene Wenger has dropped a very strong hint that Arsenal are not finished in the summer transfer market. And it looks like there could be at least two new players heading to the Emirates; one to fill the hole in the back four left by the departure of Thomas Vermaelen to Barcelona, and one to provide cover and competition in the centre of midfield.

The ankle injury picked up by the new Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta against Besiktas this week leaves the Gunners looking decidedly thin on the ground in that area. Many fans will say that we have been a bit thin there for years, but it looks like it has taken the injury to Arteta to tip the balance for our manager, as these comments reported by Arsenal.com suggest.

Arsenal MUST respond to Chelsea show of strength 0

Posted on August 19, 2014 by admin

Arsenal may not have been entirely convincing on Saturday, but we did at least manage to win the opening Premier League game of the season for the first time in five years. With Arsene Wenger having a reduced squad to choose from and his admission that the season has started too soon for us, that win and the character shown were great for confidence, but watching Chelsea last night made me think again.

Hopefully, the Arsenal boss was watching as well, because it may just make him realise that the Gunners are still a bit short. Chelsea seem to have addressed their main problem of last season, which was the inability to break down the stubborn defences you get from the Premier League’s smaller teams.
