Were Arsenal too soft in letting Debuchy leave? 1

Posted on February 02, 2016 by admin

The Arsenal and France star Mathieu Debuchy managed to get his wish and leave the Gunners on loan in a deal done in the last few hours of transfer deadline day. I can understand that it was frustrating for the right back to not be playing much and that he was worried about his place in the France team for the Euro 2016 tournament in his home country this summer.

But at the end of the day, he is an Arsenal player first and foremost and it is the Gunners that pay his very good salary, so I am not sure why he feels vindicated after Arsene Wenger allowed him to join Bordeaux on loan for the rest of the season, as a report in The Sun explains.

Arsenal to seal last gasp transfer with STUNNING striker signing? 0

Posted on February 01, 2016 by admin

As per usual the Arsenal manager has been saying both before and during the current transfer window that he was open to the signing of top players if only he could find them, but try as he might he just could not identify any available players that would improve the squad.

Maybe he has been right as well, but now that the Metro is reporting that Arsenal are one of a number of clubs to have been offered the PSG and Uruguay centre forward Edinson Cavani, that could well have changed.

Arsenal team for Burnley in FA cup is VERY strong 0

Posted on January 30, 2016 by admin

Arsene Wenger is having to walk a fine line with his Arsenal team selection today. The Frenchman must balance the need to get through to the next round of the FA cup and stay on track for a record three trophy wins in a row, with the need to treat the Premier League title race as a priority.

He also needs to weigh up the benefits of playing a strong side against the desire to rest some key players like Mesut Ozil agead of the game against Southampton in the league on Tuesday. It is all about risk and reward really and the boss suggested in his press conference that because Arsenal really need a win after three games without one he would be leaning towards as strong a team as possible.

Does 2nd Arsenal transfer bid mean Gibbs is Gunner go? 1

Posted on January 29, 2016 by admin

The Arsenal and England international left back Kieran Gibbs might have been feeling a little bit frustrated and sorry for himself before these Arsenal transfer rumours started hitting the press, although he has showed a strong and professional attitude to not complain and to perform for the Gunners when he does get a chance.

But even though the stats show that Gibbs has played 21 times for Arsenal this season, only two of those were Premier League starts and it is clear that the defender is second choice to his older and more experienced Spanish team mate Nacho Monreal.

Coquelin comeback hands Arsenal key to Premier League title 0

Posted on January 28, 2016 by admin

The worst games of the season for Arsenal so far, ignoring the very predictable problems we had away to Bayern Munich in the Champions League, have come when we did not have the defensive midfield ability of French Gunner Francis Coquelin on the pitch.

But hopefully the Guuners will now be able to avoid results like the 3-0 reverse at Sheffield Wednesday and the limp loss away to Southampton, because Le Coq is back. There were some stats produced last week that showed that having the Frenchman in the middle saw Arsenal concede 50 percent fewer shots on goal and concede a lot less goals.

Arsenal transfer at risk from Man United hijack? 0

Posted on January 26, 2016 by admin

I personally think that only another injury to one of the Arsenal attacking stars will force Arsene Wenger into the market to sign a striker during the current January transfer window. But the Frenchman has surprised us before and even if he is not looking at a new forward this month, he might well already be looking at transfer options for the summer.

One of those is the Marseille and Belgium international striker Michy Batshauyi. The Gunners are said to have been keeping a close eye on the talented 22-year old and Wenger is supposed to be very impressed by him. His goal record of a goal a game for Belgium and almost one every other game in the French Ligue 1 is certainly impressive.

Are Leicester now Arsenal’s main EPL title rivals? 0

Posted on January 24, 2016 by admin

Arsenal fans and other people watching the English Premier League have continued to see Manchester City as the team to beat of Arsene Wenger and the Gunners are going to lift the EPL trophy for the first time in 12 years. We have been expecting this season’s surprise package Leicester City to fall away sooner or later, but once again this weekend they confounded the experts.

Arsenal on transfer trail of stunning young winger 0

Posted on January 21, 2016 by admin

There is a long and distinguished list of players that Arsenal have missed out on during the managerial reign of Arsene Wenger, with big name players like Zlatan Ibrahimovich, Eden Hazard, Juan Mata and many more having been close to a transfer to Arsenal before going on to having stellar careers.

But surely the most painful one has to be losing out to Manchester United for three time Ballon D’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo. Wenger has admitted to this being his biggest regret, transfer-wise, so the Frenchman will be even more keen to avoid it happening again.

Arsenal STILL have injury concerns over Alexis Sanchez 0

Posted on January 21, 2016 by admin

I do not know if it is because of all the criticism that the Arsenal manager received back at the end of November after the Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez had to limp off the pitch towards the end of the Premier League draw away to Norwich City.

Whatever the reason, Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal medical team appear to be treating the forward with extreme caution as he works his way back to full fitness and a comeback into the first team. It has been weeks since we heard that Sanchez was close to a comeback but as yet there has been no sign of our star man.

Arsenal have sealed key transfer from Premier League rivals 0

Posted on January 21, 2016 by admin

It has been a finny season in the Premier League so far and Arsenal fans are loving it, especially the terrible attempt to defend the title put up by London rivals Chelsea and seeing their loudmouth manager Jose Mourinho taken down a peg or two and left without a club after the Chelsea boss Roman Abramovich tired of his antics for a second time.

Perhaps the success of Leicester City has been even more of a shock to the football world and the Arsenal board has responded to the way the recruitment policy of the Foxes has seen them get some great players for a pittance, at least compared to what other like Man City have been spending.
