Wenger WILL NOT bring Radamel Falcao to Arsenal 1

Posted on August 29, 2014 by Patrick

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.

Arsenal v Everton – Which German(s) should Wenger play today? 0

Arsene Wenger is likely to stick to his match-fit players in tonight’s Premier League game at Everton as Arsenal’s German contingent will not be up to scratch since coming back from the World Cup late, but he has admitted that he mat start one or two tonight.

“They are part of the squad and, of course, they are important players,” said Wenger.

“How will I use them? Certainly not the three together because they lack a competitive edge. Will I use one or two? I don’t know yet.”

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.

Where will Podolski fit into the Arsenal team now? 3

Posted on July 20, 2014 by Patrick

When Lukas Podolski signed for Arsenal for a mere 10 million before the 2011-2012 season ended, many Arsenal fans were ecstatic. In Podolski, we found a superb and deadly finisher. Also, Podolski is one with a powerful shot and a great footballing brain to spot key passes. Many Arsenal fans were extremely excited regarding Podolski wearing an Arsenal jersey.

Podolski had a decent start to his Arsenal career, capturing a brace in his first preseason match. He went on to have an impressive first season with the club, finishing with 16 goals and 11 assists. Not bad for a player playing in England for the first time.

Arsenal stars to be unleashed against Brazil? 0

Whereas Mesut Ozil has started all five games for Germany at the World Cup so far, his Arsenal team mates Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski have not been so fortunate. The 29-year old striker, in particular, has been largely a spectator so far, with just 56 minutes of action in two sub appearances.

But Podolski’s World Cup could be about to take off and the Germany international would love to have the chance to go past Rudi Voller and Jurgen Klinsmann in Germany’s all time scoring charts, with the Prince currently tied in third with 47 goals.

Podolski – Arsenal WILL win the Cup Final! 0

It is good to see confidence running through the Arsenal team, and after beating Hull City convincingly twice already this season, there is no reason to think we could lose this time around. Lukas Podolski obviously feels the same way as I do!

He said: “We are on a good run and are favourites.

“We play very well in the last five or six matches so we go to Wembley with thousands of our fans and we must play like in our last matches.

Arsenal return to Premier League action once again this weekend for the first time since Wednesday 12th February, in the Gunners 0-0 home draw against Manchester United. It may seem like a long time ago considering we have since invited both Liverpool and Bayern Munich to the Emirates in the FA Cup and Champions League respectively. In fact it is little over a week and a half ago that Van Persie and his red devils came to the Emirates but in that time he was the only Robin to cause trouble for the Gunners. Bayern Munich’s Arjen Robben caused concern for Arsenal on Wednesday, and it is a result that will need to be overturned, but for now it’s important that the club and the players focus on the next fixture.

Arsenal returned to winning ways in the Premier League last weekend by beating fellow Londoners Crystal Palace 2-0 at the Emirates. The win came after what had been a disappointing transfer window as well as an infuriating previous match, which saw the Gunners draw 2-2 with Southampton and drop temporarily into 2nd place.

Now Arsenal will be looking to make it two wins on the trot so our Premier League title push remains intact. Currently the Gunners sit two points ahead of Man City and Chelsea, but we probably have a harder run in to the end of the season than them and so anything could happen. Furthermore with Manchester City likely to continue the trend of running riot against lower opposition, it’s vital that we stick to grabbing all three points at every opportunity.

If it takes Podolski to get Draxler, should Arsenal do it? 4

Posted on January 23, 2014 by admin

Reports coming out of the transfer gossip columns suggests a new turn in the tables for Arsenal’s interest in young German international Julian Draxler. Draxler has been linked with the Gunners for a substantial amount of the January transfer window and before, but as of yet nothing on the subject seems to have changed. But with less than 10 days now remaining in the window, Arsenal fans will be desperately hoping Arsene Wenger can pull off another big money deal, even if it follows the fashion of the summer 2013 deadline day.

Arsenal should not expect an easy game against Fulham 0

Posted on January 18, 2014 by admin

In a few hours Arsenal will host fellow London team Fulham at the Emirates. Teams find themselves in a different positions, while Arsenal is first and have been for a while now (with a few one day interchanges that is), Fulham is basically just above the drop zone. It’s safe to say both teams need points very much, so there will be no stepping down.

The big majority of my fellow Gooners believe it will be an easy win, so do most of the pundits on the web with their predictions. I on the other hand, am not so optimistic. Don’t get me wrong, we can, we should and we will win, but it will not be the routine job almost everyone thinks. I have several reasons to believe that.
