Forget Falcao, Arsenal fans should be happy with Welbeck!! 6

Posted on September 01, 2014 by admin

Look Arsenal fans, I am not saying that the (not official yet) new Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck is as good as Radamel Falcao, or that Arsenal should not be in the market for the best players in the world. But I am being realistic and saying that before Falcao was on the table, the arrival of Welbeck today would have been welcomed a lot more by Gooners.

Once we were linked with the Colombian, however, Arsenal fans were never going to be happy with anything less than him or Cavani, so as soon as we hear about the Man United and England man, there are moans and groans and people saying he is a United reject.

Arsenal legend tells Wenger straight! Sign a striker or else!! 4

Posted on September 01, 2014 by admin

Alan Smith joined Arsenal from Leicester in 1987 and scored over 100 goals for us before hanging up his boots. The player nicknamed Smudger may not have been the biggest star in the world, but he knew where the back of the net was and scored some vital goals for the club, including the only goal as the Gunners won the European Cup Winners’ Cup final.

And he wants Arsenal to do well, which is why he has told Arsene Wenger in a Daily Star report in no uncertain terms that Arsenal can forget about winning the Premier League title unless the Frenchman brings a top quality centre forward to the Emirates today.

Arsenal match Chelsea’s Remy transfer bid but is it too late? 1

Posted on August 31, 2014 by admin

According to the latest Arsenal transfer rumours, Arsene Wenger has made a last minute move to hijack the transfer of Loic Remy from QPR to Chelsea. The French striker was the talk of the football world yesterday, in England anyway, as he was left out of Harry Redknapp’s squad shortly before their win against Sunderland.

And it seemed that his transfer to Chelsea to cover for Fernando Torres, who has joined AC Milan on loan, was done and dusted. But the Daily Mail then reported that Arsenal had entered the fray and had matched Chelsea’s offer. So now the 27-year old France international has a straight choice to make, if the reports are true.

Plot thickens as Arsenal target Falcao left out by Monaco 0

Posted on August 31, 2014 by admin

I am not saying that Arsenal are on the verge of signing the Colombian international striker Radamel Falcao, whether on a season long loan deal or whatever, but there are increasing signs that the 28-year old may be moving on from his current club Monaco in the French Ligue 1.

Even if he does, however, it does not mean that he will be coming to Arsenal. We are just one of the clubs being linked with Falcao, with moneybags Man City and Real Madrid also apparently in the frame. But we are one of the clubs, so the news reported by ESPN that the prolific 28-year old was left out of the Monaco squad completely for their home draw with Lille yesterday does offer some encouragement.

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.

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.

Arsenal injury woes NOT club’s fault claims Wenger!! 1

Posted on August 27, 2014 by admin

The words Arsenal and injury have started to go together like sausage and mash, rock and roll or Spurs and sh*t in recent years. After our title challenge was ruined by the amount of players the Gunners lost to injury last season, Arsene Wenger admitted that there seemed to be an underlying problem at the club and that he was determined to put it right.

So with two new fitness and medical experts joining the backroom staff during the summer, the hope was that Arsenal would not have the same problems this time around. But I have already had to write a few articles about our injury problems, with Kieran Gibbs, Mikel Arteta, Yaya Sanogo and now Olivier Giroud all succumbing during the first few games of the season.

Wenger backs Arsenal star to make Lineker eat his words 1

Posted on August 25, 2014 by admin

Gary Lineker may try his best to be impartial and unbiased while being the front man for Match of the Day for the BBC, but when it comes to Twitter, the former Tottenham striker has no reason to hold back and launched a sarcastic dig at the Arsenal and France centre forward Olivier Giroud last week.

He tweeted, “Playing in front of Arsenal’s midfield should guarantee a minimum of 25 goals a season for a striker of note. Alas….”

Arsenal to see more from Alexis Sanchez against Man City 0

Posted on August 06, 2014 by admin

After making his first two appearances for Arsenal last weekend in the Emirates Cup games against Benfica and Monaco, Alexis Sanchez called for a bit of patience from the Arsenal fans and suggested that he is not really fully fit yet. To be fair to him, I don’t think he had any reason to expect anything else.

The Chilean had only just arrived in London and had trained just twice with his new team mates. So for the 25-year old to say that he would need a bit more time to get to match sharpness and really show us what he is made of, just highlights the high standards that he sets for himself.
