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.

No Bony but can Welbeck and Reid rescue Arsenal transfer window? 7

Posted on September 01, 2014 by admin

Right about now, Arsenal fans, I would settle for Arsene Wenger signing just about any player he could get his hands on. But that is just the deadline day jitters getting to me and in the cold light of day, I agree that there is no point bringing in a player just for the sake of it when they are unlikely to play.

We don’t want another Kim Kallstrom or Park Chu-Young but if we are not going to get a top, top, top player then maybe a couple of pretty handy ones would do. So I was hoping that the latest Arsenal transfer rumour reported by Metro has some truth to it. The paper claimed that Wenger was to make a late double swoop for Wilfried Bony and Winston Reid.

Final proof that Arsenal are lying to fans? 9

Posted on September 01, 2014 by admin

It seems to happen every year to Arsenal fans and we keep falling for it. The club promises the earth and delivers a handful of dirt. Now although it was painful and frustrating to sell our best players and replace them with inferior ones, if at all, while paying off the Emirates stadium, I think we could at least understand that there was a plan for the future.

Arsene Wenger admits that Sanogo has a “problem” 7

Posted on September 01, 2014 by admin

Yesterday Arsenal played Leicester with Yaya Sanogo as their Main striker, and the youngster (who is yet to score a competitive goal for the Gunners)was slated by Arsenal fans after the game. With Olivier Giroud injured all Gooners are now begging Wenger to sign another striker todayto give us a chance of staying in the title race.

Wenger admitted that Sanogo had a problem, but also indicated that”it wouldn’t last long”.

“When you are 21 and play up front and don’t score it is very quickly a problem,” said Wenger.

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.

Bring on Besiktas roars battling Arsenal star!! 0

Posted on August 25, 2014 by admin

After Arsenal looked silky smooth as we eased to a comfortable Community Shield win at Wembley against the might of Man City, the start of the season proper has been problematic to say the least. A scrambled winner saved us from a shocker against Crystal Palace before we ground out a draw in Istanbul and narrowly avoided defeat at Everton.

So are the Arsenal players feeling the pressure a bit and worrying about our form? Not on you Nellie, at least not if you ask our England international midfielder Jack Wilshere anyway. The 22-year old, who is well aware of what a big season this is for him personally as well as for the club he loves, has been speaking about his confidence ahead of the second leg with Besiktas, as reported by The Daily Mail.
