Madrid slam door on Khedira’s January transfer to Arsenal 0

Posted on October 20, 2014 by admin

If Arsene Wenger is determined to finally sign a top class defensive midfielder to strengthen his Arsenal squad in January, then it looks like the Frenchman will have to keep looking. Assuming that the recent Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that Sami Khedira would be the player coming to join the Gunners that is.

It was rumoured that Wenger had already reached an agreement with the Germany international over the personal terms of his transfer and that Mesut Ozil and Per Mertesacker had convinced the central midfielder to snub any attempts by Jose Mourinho and Chelsea to hijack the deal.

Is Schneiderlin transfer the answer to Arsenal’s problems? 0

Posted on October 19, 2014 by admin

It seems to me as though Arsenal are being punished for their failure to push on and make a real concerted effort to sign Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton during the summer transfer window. The France international has not only pushed on with his personal performances, but he has led Southampton to the sort of results that Arsene Wenger and the Gunners can only dream of at the minute.

And it looks like the Arsenal boss may have realised his mistake, with The Mirror reporting that Wenger is planning to go back for the Southampton star in the January transfer window.

Hull are “disappointed with one point” against Arsenal – Wenger out! 5

Posted on October 19, 2014 by Patrick

Arsenal now find themselves 11 points behind League Leaders Chelsea after their 5th draw from their first 8 games, but as the Gunners only equalised in the 91st minute the Hull City manager Steve Bruce is upset that his team only came away with a point.

He said after the game: “The players are disappointed because they’ve gone close again and the frustration is that it’s happened four times to us now this season, conceding late on,”

“But we are disappointed because we could only take a point from Arsenal.

Same old story at both ends for Arsenal 0

Posted on October 18, 2014 by admin

If you are looking for an explanation as to why Arsenal struggled to rescue a draw with Hull City at the Emirates today and only managed it with a stoppage time equaliser from Danny Welbeck, there are two simple reasons. The Gunners are still struggling at either end of the pitch.

You cannot blame Wojciech Szczesny for any of the four goals scored in the last two Premier League games, but Mertesacker and Koscielny have both made mistakes and the fact the defensive part of the squad is not strong enough has been made crystal clear by the injury situation. We cannot seem to keep a lead for long and our clean sheets have disappeared.

Walcott, Gnabry and Diaby hand Arsenal BIG boost 0

Posted on October 18, 2014 by admin

Arsene Wenger is playing it as safe as he can with the Arsenal players returning from injury it seems. Hopefully the Frenchman is listening to his medical staff and the new fitness and conditioning expert Shad Forsythe and hopefully this will lead to the current injury problems not being continued throughout the whole season.

It already seems to be getting better and the under 21 game against Blackburn Rovers last night produced a huge boost for Arsenal and our chances of having another successful season. Theo Walcott, Serge Gnabry and Abou Diaby all came through their parts in the game unscathed and looking good.

Arsenal already looking past Hull to Anderlecht? 0

Posted on October 17, 2014 by admin

I hope that I am wrong about this but I get the feeling that Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players might be taking their eyes off the ball a little bit. Maybe it is because the Gunners did the double over tomorrow’s opponents Hull City in the Premier League last season, scoring five goals without reply, but it is a dangerous game to play.

Time for Arsenal to give up on Ozil? 0

Posted on October 13, 2014 by admin

There is a theory that the Arsenal and Germany international playmaker Mesut Ozil may never play for the Gunners again. According to media reports, the 25-year old is thinking about calling time on his career with Arsenal and leaving the English Premier League altogether.

Ozil is already set to miss two or three months with the knee ligament damage that caused him to be sent home from the current international round of games, so if the Arsenal transfer rumour in the Daily Mail is true, Ozil may have played his last game for Arsenal.

Wenger NEVER intended to bring Fabregas back to Arsenal! 1

Posted on October 05, 2014 by Patrick

There has much talk about Arsenal’s so-called “first option” on bringing Cesc Fabregas back to the Emirates if he ever left Barcelona, but according to this interview with Arsene Wenger in the Telegraph, he did not even consider getting him to rejoin his old team-mates.

Here is a direct quote from the article:

Asked whether a buy-back option in the contract existed, Wenger replied: “Yes.” Asked specifically whether he had decided not to take up that option he also simply said: “Yes.”

Wilshere and fight give Arsenal rays of light on dark day 2

Posted on October 05, 2014 by admin

It was another disappointing day for Arsenal on the road to one of our main rivals, but there are some positives for us to take out of the game. The way that Chelsea have started the Premier League season, with only Man City at home denying them a win, and they almost did win, should not be taken lightly.

In a way, the Gunners answered some of the big questions from last season, such as have we got the fighting qualities to compete against the big sides. Arsene Wenger was certainly up for the scrap on the touchlines, as he got into a bit of a tangle with Jose Mourinho. And the players showed much more spirit than we had at Stamford Bridge, Anfield, Old Trafford and the Etihad stadium last season.

Time for Arsenal to get tough with Ozil? 4

Posted on October 05, 2014 by admin

I am sure that I was not the only Arsenal fan to be left scratching my head when it was not Mesut Ozil, the most ineffectual player on the pitch against Chelsea today, but Santi Cazorla, who got the hook from Arsene Wenger and was the first Gunner to be subbed off at Stamford Bridge.

If the idea was to give the club record signing more space to work in his preferred number 10 role, it did not work. When we need to be really pushing for a goal, the German international was either on the periphery and tapping little passes around in front of the Chelsea defence, or else he was being bullied off the ball and putting Arsenal back into danger.
