Who is to blame for AWFUL Arsenal show v Monaco? 1

Posted on February 26, 2015 by admin

I understand that the buck normally stops with the manager and a lot of Arsenal fans will surely think that Arsene Wenger has a lot to answer for this morning. The players were not properly motivated and our tactics just fell apart. And keeping the terrible Mesut Ozil on for the whole game was just bizarre.

But Ozil was far from being the only Arsenal player that had a shocker. Not one of them played well in fact. Welbeck and Sanchez dropped deep and came central to rob us of any width, the full backs neglected their defensive duties, Koscielny and particularly Mertesacker made bad decisions and just defended poorly in general.

STUNNING transfer GREAT for Arsenal – NIGHTMARE for Man Utd 0

Oh Arsenal fans, can you just imagine how much it would wind up our old rivals Man United and how much ammunition it would give Gooners to use on their fans if this Arsenal transfer rumour was to come true. A Metro report claims that it has news from Italy that Arsene Wenger is willing to break the bank to get the France international star Paul Pogba from Juventus this summer.

Arsenal taking BIG risk playing Alexis Sanchez today? 0

Posted on February 15, 2015 by admin

It was a big surprise to see the name of Alexis Sanchez on the Arsenal team sheet today for the visit of \MIddlesborough in the fifth round of the FA cup. We had been told that the Chilean striker was not likely to play as his knee was still swollen after Tuesday night.

We know that Sanchez always wants to play and that this is an important game for the Gunners, but Wenger has made lots of changes, giving the likes of Chambers, Flamini, Gabriel and Gibbs rare starts. And with Theo Walcott finding his form and fitness, it is not as if the manager did not have a good option to play instead of Sanchez.

Arsenal boss planning to do an `LVG´ against Boro? 0

Posted on February 15, 2015 by admin

It was a bit of a surprise to hear the Arsenal boss sticking up for his opposite number over at Old Trafford this week. I don´t think it would have been the same from Arsene Wenger if it was still his old enemy Sir Alex Ferguson still in charge, but the Frenchman has so far managed not to fall out with the new man Louis van Gaal.

Arsenal prepare BIG money summer swoop for La Liga star 0

Posted on February 13, 2015 by admin

If there really is truth to this latest Arsenal transfer rumour then it shows us fans a few things. One is that Arsene Wenger has no problems in continuing to spend the big money on the sort of transfer deals that we had not seen for years before the stunning signing of Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid.

Because £25 million for a defender would represent another break from tradition for the Arsenal boss and that is what a Metro report claims that we will pay Madrid for another of their stars Fabio Coentrao in the summer.

Will Arsenal REALLY let Wilshere transfer to Liverpool? 1

Posted on February 09, 2015 by admin

Although Arsene Wenger publicly offered his support to the under fire Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere last week, there is a feeling that the Frenchman could finally be losing patience with the 23-year old who joined the club as a promising nine year old back in 2001.

A Metro report claims that Wilshere’s latest public smoking gaffe, when he was pictured in a nightclub holding a shisha tobacco pipe, could have been the last straw for his manager. And that could open the door for the Gunners’ Premier League rivals Liverpool to swoop for young Jack when the transfer window opens in the summer as they seek to find a replacement for the long serving Steven Gerrard.

Great news as Arsenal complete double signing! 0

Posted on February 06, 2015 by admin

Arsene Wenger may not have done a lot of business in the January transfer window but he did identify the team´s most pressing need and signed a good quality centre back, the Brazilian Gabriel Paulista, in order to provide cover and competition for the centre backs we already have.

His other signing, the 17’year old Polish midfielder Krystian Bielik, is one for the future and that is something that our manager has to keep a close eye on as well as what will help us to do well this season. And the Frenchman has now completed two more very important deals for the future of Arsenal.

Why Arsenal might get Suarez for £40m after all 0

Posted on January 28, 2015 by admin

What a great transfer coup this would be for Arsenal, and a good hard kick in the teeth to Liverpool at the same time. The Anfield club really made the most out of their chance to put down Arsenal Football Club after our attempt to sign their Uruguayan international striker Luis Suarez in the summer of 2013.

Arsene Wenger famously offered one pound over £40 million, believing that this would trigger a release clause in the controversial forward’s contract. Suarez thought the same and wanted to make the move to north London but eventually left Liverpool for Barcelona and Spain’s La Liga for a lot more money last summer.

New Arsenal signing set to start after permit granted? 2

Posted on January 26, 2015 by admin

I must admit that I was worried about Arsene Wenger perhaps being a bit over confident about getting a work permit for the new Arsenal defender Gabriel Paulista. We were told at the weekend that the Gunners and his Spanish La Liga club Villarreal had agreed the terms of the transfer and the deal was set to be completed today or tomorrow.

It would not be the first time that Wenger and Arsenal did not get the decision they expected from the football authorities and so I feared that they might stick to the letter of the law and not allow Paulista a work permit as he had no full international caps with Brazil.

Paulista transfer CONFIRMED! Is that it for Arsenal? 2

Posted on January 25, 2015 by admin

Arsenal fans are not used to this sort of thing from Arsene Wenger during the January transfer window, as we are usually left with shredded nerves and no fingernails on the transfer deadline day, feverishly checking the internet every few minutes and hoping that the Frenchman has something up his sleeve.

This year the Gunners boss seems to have got his work done with almost a week to spare, as an ESPN report reveals that the transfer deal to bring the Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista to the Premier League has been done. It has still to be confirmed officially by the Arsenal website but the report explains that Paulista’s La Liga club Villarreal have confirmed the move, which just needs a medical to be done before it is all wrapped up.
