Arsenal starting XI for Chelsea with Ozil AND Cazorla! 2

Posted on April 26, 2015 by admin

Most Arsenal fans are expecting a tough game against Chelsea today but we are also feeling more confident that Arsene Wenger can finally end his run against Jose Mourinho and get his first victory over his rival. But if it is to be lucky 13 for the Frenchman, he will have to work out how to get through the big blue bus that Chelsea will bring to north London.

For me, the Gunners do have the tools and will need our creative players to outfox the power of Chelsea and that is why I think that Wenger will start with Mesut Ozil in a wide forward role rather than Danny Welbeck, with Santi Cazorla in the central attacking midfield role.

OUCH! Germany star SNUBS Arsenal for Man United transfer! 2

Posted on April 25, 2015 by admin

At least one of the Arsenal transfer targets rumoured to be on the list of Arsene Wenger for this summer appears top have delivered an early snub to the Frenchman, as the Daily Mail is reporting that the Borussia Dortmund and Germany international star Ilkay Gundogan has chosen a transfer to our Premier League rivals Manchester United instead.

Gundogan is a talented central midfielder and the versatility that allows him to play deep, advanced or on the flanks would have made him a typical Wenger signing for Arsenal, especially at the bargain price being quoted of around £20 million.

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.

Southampton star CONFIRMS Arsenal transfer rumours!! 0

Posted on April 23, 2015 by admin

After signing the versatile Calum Chambers from them in the last summer transfer window, it appears that Arsenal will be going back to take another Southampton player when the current season draws to a close.

It might not be the player you think though, as the man who plays alongside the heavily linked central midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has told the press that it is him, Victor Wanyama, that Arsene Wenger wants to sign this summer, as reported by Metro.

The Kenya international star said, “Wenger has been talking about me.

“He has let it be known he would like to sign me this summer.

Arsenal Rueing Their Early Season Form by SG

It goes without saying that Arsenal FC have a history which is the envy of most football teams. Yet, until The Gunners’ nine-year trophy drought was ended last season when they lifted the FA Cup, the noise of the questions being asked about the club’s ambition continued to grow ever louder. And even winning the grand old trophy did not sate the appetite of everyone.

The 2014-15 season has been another case in point. Arsenal’s 2014 FA Cup win merely raised expectations among supporters who hoped that Arsene Wenger would be able to rekindle his midas touch and use the success as a springboard.

Former Arsenal star´s tactics ALL WRONG for Chelsea? 4

Posted on April 21, 2015 by admin

He may not have done any actual managerial work since retiring from playing football, but the former Arsenal and Scotland international striker Charlie Nicholas does work as a TV pundit and football journalist so he should have a good grasp of tactics and knowledge of the clubs he talks about in the Premier League.

Arsenal with SHOCK La Liga BIG MONEY transfer swoop 0

Posted on April 19, 2015 by admin

The shock in this latest Arsenal transfer rumour is not that Arsene Wenger is a fan of Francisco Román Alarcón Suárez, but that Arsenal are planning to try to sign him this summer with a big money offer of around £35 million.

The talented midfielder, more commonly known as Isco, is currently playing for Real Madrid and doing very well since his €30 million move from Malaga two years ago, and that is why I would be surprised if the Gunners were able to sign him.

Arsenal preview and starting XI for Burnley with Gibbs IN 1

Posted on April 11, 2015 by admin

Arsenal are looking to continue the remarkable recent run which has seen us overtake both Man United and the reigning champions Man City, while ending the Champions League hopes of Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool. But this is not time for Wenger and the players to pat each other on the backs as Burnley are no mugs.

They are a very hard working, energetic and physical team and Wenger mentioned in the pre-match build up that his players need to cope with that first and foremost before our superior technical skills can come into force.

WOW! Cavani edges ever closer to Arsenal transfer 3

Posted on April 06, 2015 by admin

Arsenal fans were crying out for Arsene Wenger to sign the Uruguay international striker Edinson Cavani in the summer of 2013. That was a year after the Frenchman had brought in Oliver Giroud and Lukas Podolski after the departure of Robin van Persie and it is safe to say that we were not too impressed.

But Cavani went for around 65 million euros to PSG from his Italian club Napoli and they spent some of that money, too much really, in beating us to another striker in Gonzalo Higuain. Neither have exactly lit up their new clubs, but the Arsenal fans could finally be set to see what all the fuss over Cavani was about.

Arsenal to deny Spurs top four AND top transfer target 1

Posted on April 05, 2015 by admin

Arsenal fans will be hoping that Burnley can get something out of their Premier League home game today, because the visitors are our north London rivals Tottenham. Even if the spuds do win later though, they will still be seven points behind us and with Man United in good form it looks like another season in the Europa League for our neighbours.

According to a Daily Star report today, a place in the Champions League is not the only thing that the Gunners will be denying them this year, as the paper reports that Arsene Wenger is preparing to hijack one of their summer transfer deals.
