Arsenal ready to CONFIRM transfer after Cech medical 1

Posted on June 26, 2015 by admin

Any lingering doubts about Arsenal being able to complete the transfer of the Czech Republic international Petr Cech will soon be over once and for all. I for one had my doubts about Chelsea agreeing to the deal and have had a suspicion that Jose Mourinho would get his way and veto the move of his veteran keeper just as he did with Demba Ba a year or so ago.

But with the Evening Standard reporting that the transfer fee has been agreed at around £11 million and the keeper’s personal terms are all sorted, with Cech set to earn around £100,000 a week, the 33/year old is at the Emirates today to complete his medical.

BOOM! Arsenal have already COMPLETED Cech transfer!! 7

There is no explanation of why there is yet to be an official announcement about this transfer from either Arsenal or Chelsea, but it has been reported by the usually fairly reliable source of the Daily Mail that the transfer of the Czech Republic number one Petr Cech from Stamford Bridge to the Emirates stadium has been completed.

The paper says that the transfer is costing the Gunners a transfer fee or around £11 million and the keeper will earn around £100,000 a week. It also looks like this will mean that David Ospina will leave Arsenal in the summer transfer window, in order to get the regular first team football his ability deserves, with the Poland international Wojciech Szczesny staying as our reserve and possibly cup keeper.

It looks like Arsene Wenger will soon be able to give the Arsenal fans something to cheer about in the summer transfer window, perhaps before it even opens officially on the 1st of July. Given that the Czech Republic international number one is currently with a club in the same league as Arsenal, he would be able to complete his move now anyway.

According to a report in The Mirror today, the final stumbling block to the Gunners getting this top keeper from our Premier League rivals Chelsea has been removed and it has nothing to do with the wishes of Jose Mourinho to veto it.

YES! Arsenal ARE in talks over Cech transfer says boss! 3

It looks like Arsenal could be set to complete our first, and arguably the most important, transfer deal of the summer window. The player in question is the Chelsea veteran Petr Cech and so we have to assume that the talks he was due to have with the Stamford Bridge club yesterday went well.

There had been some fears that Chelsea would go back on their agreement to allow their long serving star to choose his own destination, and Jose Mourinho declared he would have done it it was up to him. But after a report by Metro today revealed that the CEO of the Gunners Ivan Gazidis confirmed that he was in talks with Cech and Chelsea over the move, it looks like Arsenal will get our man.

This was supposed to be the week that the Arsenal transfer target Petr Cech was due for a meeting with the top brass at Chelsea to sort out his future. Despite his club manager Jose Mourinho being very clear about not wanting the talented and experienced keeper to join a Premier League rival, it is still thought that Roman Abramovich will stand by his decision not to block Cech’s transfer to thank him for a decade or so of sterling service.

WHOA! Arsenal star AGREES with Mourinho taunts 0

Maybe the Arsenal defender was not aware of what Jose Mourinho, the Lex Luthor to Arsene Wenger´s Superman, said this week about the Gunners and our failure to challenge them for the Premier League title. Or maybe the World Cup winning German just does not care, but he has agreed with the Chelsea boss and his assessment of our season, as reported by The Mirror.

WOW! Arsenal complete TREBLE Premier League award swoop!! 0

Posted on May 27, 2015 by admin

While this might come as a surprise to most Arsenal fans, it will also drive those of us of the AOB persuasion to distraction and should have the Jose Mourinho lovers even more hopping mad and spitting feathers, because Arsene Wenger was last night voted as the Premier League manager of the year.

Not such a surprise is that Alexis Sanchez scooped the players´ award but when you see that Arsenal were also voted as the team of the year, you get the sneaking suspicion that the voting may have been slightly overrun by the Gooners out there in social media land. The awards were the Facebook Football Awards after all so maybe we should take the winners with a big spoonful of salt.

Mourinho is RIGHT about Arsenal´s title challenge!! 0

Posted on May 27, 2015 by admin

I am fairly sure that Jose Mourinho did not really intend to say good things about Arsenal as he delivered his end of season speech at the Chelsea awards ceremony last night. In fact the Portuguese manager was clearly intending to mock us as well as his other big Premier League rivals Man City and Man United and to some extent he succeeded.

But while he was quite cutting about the two Manchester clubs by claiming that United wanted to play without goals and have the season decided on possession and that City would have won if it were not for having to defend their own goal, his taunting of the Gunners was not really that bad.

Arsenal already `in transfer talks´ and on verge of SEALING DEAL 3

It is shaping up to be the most enjoyable and optimistic summer for Arsenal fans in many a year. Arsene Wenger and the Gunners are on the point of securing a higher than usual finish in the Premier League and lifting the FA cup for the second season in a row and the boss looks keen to push on even further and give us Gooners a title winning team with some great transfer business.

Arsenal fans to BOO or CHEER return of Fabregas? 1

Posted on April 24, 2015 by admin

The last time Arsenal beat Chelsea at the Emirates, in December 2010, one of the heroes that day was the Spaniard Cesc Fabregas, and Sunday will be his first return to the Emirates since he forced Arsene Wenger to sell him to his boyhood club Barcelona.

When that move was finalised, at a ridiculously low price, much was made of the fact that Arsenal had inserted a buy-back clause into the sale that meant that the Gunners would have first option if the Spanish giants decided to let Fab go at some point in the future. That point came and went last summer, but all Gooners were shocked that Cesc was snapped up by Chelsea instead of returning to the Emirates as expected.
