Arsenal boss rules out top striker transfer

Arsenal fans will be hoping that the striker who has scored more Premier League goals than any other in 2015 has an off day this weekend. That striker is Harry Kane and he will be leading the line for Tottenham against the Gunners in the latest episode in the long running rivalry that is the north London derby.

But while the Spurs fans sing about him being one of their own, there are those awkward photos of the young Kane in an Arsenal shirt celebrating us winning the title and he was also part of the youth set up with Arsenal when he was very young.

The Wenger Trophy is “vital” for Arsenal

Arsenal fans were over the moon when the Gunners finally won the FA Cup last season after ten barren years of rebuilding leaving us without a trophy. But when we saw Wenger finally invest heavily in players like Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez we really believed that we could finally challenge for the Premiership title after leading the charge for most of last season.

This is why this campaign has been such a disappointment, and it doesn’t help us when Wenger is still aiming to finish in the Top Four. He said yesterday: “It’s vital for us.

Spud hating Podolski piles pressure on Arsenal boss!

Lukas Podolski may have endeared himself even more to the Arsenal fans this week, with his classic tweet. He was reacting to the Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds about him and a possible switch to our north London rivals Tottenham,as reported by the BBC.

The German Gunner wrote, “Hell will freeze over before this transfer happens.”

Not keen then Lukas? But as much as the Arsenal fans would have loved that bit of spud bashing, it is the manager that he needs to win over and Arsene Wenger has not responded well to his recent calls to be be played more. He even left the striker out of the match day squad completely in the last game.

The Ox says Arsenal are happy with point against Tottenham

Alex Oxlade Chamberlain happily managed to knock in Arsenal’s equalising goal against Tottenham on Saturday, and although everyone would have preferred to win the game, The Ox is content that we fought back to remain unbeaten and is trying to look at it positively.

“1-0 down is a tough ask, especially in a derby – it’s not a situation you want to find yourself in,” he said. “Nerves can creep up at that point because you know how much it means to everyone not to lose the game. So we did well to come back into the game and make it 1-1. At that point I felt we had the momentum to go and win it. Personally I’m a bit disappointed we didn’t managed to nick the last goal and take all three.

Who are Arsenal’s BIGGEST rivals for Title and Trophies?

Although there may not be any Premier League action for us to enjoy this weekend with the international break taking over club football for the next few days, it’s time to have a quick look at some of our main competitors in the league now that the transfer window has fully closed.

First of all the signing of Mesut Ozil has meant that a lot of people view Arsenal as title contenders once again. Although being quite pessimistic, I must admit that I disagree with this because I still think we lack in several areas of the pitch as well as in terms of squad depth and for those reasons I doubt we can have the sustainability to go through the entire season and go onto win the league.

Lloris injury good news for Arsenal

Hugo Lloris. Once a target for Arsenal. Now a key man for Spurs. But is his injury set to help the gunners out in the race for 4th place?

Its unknown the length of Lloris’ injury but the fact they have had to call back a reserve keeper from loan, it would suggest that he may be sidelined for a few weeks at least.
When Lloris first joined he was frozen out by Brad Friedel and it looked like they had wasted a lot of money on a very good goalkeeper, but as the season has progressed Hugo Lloris has been a key part of Tottenham Hotspur’s campaign, with the French International keeping our North London rivals in games on various occasions.
