Striker backs Arsenal to get going at Watford

One of the low points of last season for Arsenal, and there were quite a few of them as we failed yet again to make a decent job of challenging for the Premier League title or the Champions League, was the end of our hopes of making it three FA cup wins in a row.

That FA cup loss at home to Watford in March was an awful performance by the Gunners, but it was also something of a surprise, as we did beat the Hornets comfortably at home and away in the league, with an aggregate score of 7-0over the two matches.

Mahrez says YES to £40+m Arsenal transfer – Agent spotted…

Arsene Wenger told the Arsenal fans last night that they could still expect some big name transfers before the window shuts at the end of next month, but he also warned that we might have to wait until the last few days to see them.

The Frenchman may have been throwing us off track, however, because The Sun and other sources are reporting that we might soon have completed the transfer deal that would get us all buzzing.

Arsenal to match Man City’s £34m transfer bid for Mahrez?

The amount of £34 million for a player who was just voted as the best player in the Premier League and who was the driving force behind the remarkable story of Leicester City last season does not sound all that much in the crazy modern world of football transfers.

But that is the amount that Arsenal are looking at offering to the Foxes to even match the opening bid of our EPL rivals Man City after Pep Guardiola made his first move towards signing the brilliant Algerian international. We do not know if this offer will be enough and Claudio Ranieri suggested only this week that he did not think his star man would try to force a move.

Vardy and Mahrez would be a dream come true for Arsenal fans

When the news first came out that Jamie Vardy may be signing for Arsenal, many Gooners wished that his Leicester City teammate Riyad Mahrez, would also make his way to North London.

Soon after the reports about Vardy came out and that his release clause of £20 million had been met, it was suddenly announced that Mahrez too has a very low release clause in his current contract.

Are Wenger and the Arsenal players kidding themselves?

After seeing Arsenal slip up once again this season, with just a point away to West Ham when all three were required and looked in the bag when we were 2-0 up and just minutes away from the halftime break, most Arsenal fans have accepted what we already suspected strongly, that the Gunners would not be crowned EPL champions this season.

But Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players are defiant and insist that it is not all over yet, although the crowd may be on the pitch. The attitude in the Arsenal dressing room was summed up by our Egypt international star Mohamed Elneny, with post match comments reported by

Sorry Koscielny! Fans won’t let Arsenal play without pressure

The inability to cope with the pressure of needing to end the long wait for a Premier League title and to meet the level of expectation of the Arsenal fans has become one of the biggest criticisms leveled at Arsene Wenger and his team in recent years.

And once again this year that pressure seemed to get the Gunners in a big way and has seen us slide from five points clear at the top to 11 points behind the leaders Leicester City. So I can easily understand and agree with what our French centre back Laurent Koscielny has told Arsenal Player.

Now’s the time to put your money on Arsenal

OKay Arsenal fans, I know that we are all feeling a little bit dejected after the Gunners went from two points clear at the top of the table into fourth position. Our north London rivals Tottenham have gone above us in the league table for the first time all season, even if it is only by goal difference, and the awful Manchester United side under Louis van Gaal are somehow breathing down our necks with just five points between us.

Arsenal have sealed key transfer from Premier League rivals

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.
