The last couple of years have been the best for a long time for Arsenal and the fans, financially speaking as well as on the pitch. Not only has Arsene Wenger finally had some decent money to spend in the transfer market following the Emirates stadium debt being paid off, but our big spending rivals [.
Arturo Vidal is having a mixed Copa America tournament. In between turning up strong performances for Chile, Vidal also had a bad drink and drive accident. In between notching up man-of-the-match performances, he got the attentions of Arsene Wenger. This is not to say that Wenger got interested in Vidal only at this year's Copa [.
The Holding Midfielder transfer by TJ The discussion about Vidal and the holding midfielder role has centered around being an upgrade to Coquelin...but I think it fails to recognise one important point. Aaron Ramsey is the equivalent to Vidal in many respects and maybe/perhaps Vidal just shades him..
If you are like me then you will have been yearning for some football to watch almost ever since Arsenal wiped the Wembley turf with Aston Villa before lifting the FA cup trophy again. So you will probably already have been watching the women's World Cup, the Copa America and the under 21 Euro championship.
Arsenal do not NEED any more players by Sam P First of all Gooners, I do not think that the signing of Petr Cech from Chelsea will be the last piece of transfer business that Arsenal get done before the summer transfer window closes in about two months. But I do think that Arsene Wenger [...]
Why a DM IS a priority by Big Gun First off, let me say it's a sigh of relief and a breath of fresh air to see the stalwart that is Peter Cech wearing the red and white. For the last couple of years, in fact since Lehman's departure, our goalie position has always been [...]
With the news that Morgan Schneiderlin is (maybe?) set to join Manchester United, it would seem that Arsene Wenger must be setting his heart on a different defensive midfielder to compete with Francis Coquelin next season. The Arturo Vidal-to -Arsenal rumours seem to be slipping away, although it is quite clear from the 28 year-olds [.
It has not been a very well-kept secret that the Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski wants out of his contract with the Gunners as much as we all want to get rid of him! Both Galatasary and Podolski himself have publicised that there have been talks about him making the move to the Turkish Super Lig [...]
Arsene Wenger's big mistake by Lazyboy Benik Afobe was a serial goal scorer at Arsenal's youth level and while out on loan in League One. He was sold last January for a rumoured £2m to Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers where he continued his scoring prowess (13 goals in 21 apps). In selling Afobe Wenger has [.
Most Arsenal fans are agreed on the idea that Arsene Wenger should have a top quality striker on his transfer wish list for this summer window, but your guess is as good as mine as to whether the Frenchman agrees. The boss has certainly not made any moves for Arsenal in that direction yet. Despite [.
Vidal, Cech? (DONE!) Or something completely unexpected? by KM Hello folks. Are you swimming round the sports media ocean like a shark, trying to find a fallen transfer out of the surfing board like me? Well to date, not much is coming. A few rumors here and there but is there any truth to them [.
Petr Cech's first ever interview as an Arsenal player Arsenal football club have generously provided JustArsenal with Petr Cech's first ever interview as a Gunner. He believes we will be a very successful team. Let's hope he's right! Over to you Petr...... Petr, welcome to Arsenal. How does it feel to have signed for the [.
Thank God that Arsenal have finally confirmed the acquisition of Petr Cech from Chelsea OFFICIALLY. We know we are all used to waiting for weeks on end for Arsenal.com to confirm any transfers that we have all known about for ages, but it became reality today! Arsène Wenger said on the official Arsenal website: "Petr [.
Before it became almost certain that Arsenal would be able to complete the transfer of Petr Cech from Chelsea, despite the misgivings and wishes of their manager Jose Mourinho, there were some Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that the Czech Republic international would be just one of a double raid on Stamford Bridge.
After a slightly less than impressive debut season for Arsenal, well half season as he joined us in the January transfer window, Nacho Monreal has really come good. Even with Kieran Gibbs fit and in form last season, the Spaniard had cemented his status as the first choice of Arsene Wenger. And as Monreal is [.
The goodwill around signing a world class player for Arsenal is enormous. The feeling around the team as well as the supporters gets a face lift. It generally translates into points even before the action begins. This is probably one of the reasons why supporters want their club to go for marquee signings.
The one complaint every Arsenal supporter had with Arsene Wenger over the years is that there are no superstar signings. Of course, the lack of trophies that dried up over the recent past also frustrates the supporters. We'll come to that later. Back to the ‘lack of super stars'; whenever there is a chance to [.
On the face of it, you could say that it should not really matter if Arsenal and Arsene Wenger cannot end the run of games against the Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho without a victory. That run stretches over the Portuguese manager´s two spells at Stamford Bridge and although it is annoying, the two league games [.
When you hear that Arsenal are one of the clubs linked with a striker that scored more goals in the group stages of the Champions League last season than any other player, with a stunning nine goals from just six games, most Arsenal fans would start rubbing their hands together with anticipation. When you hear [.
Liverpool's transfer action is worrying by DN They did not provide too much of a threat to Arsenal last season, finally losing out to both Man United and even Tottenham to finish in sixth place. That was a real blow for Liverpool after they came so close to winning a first title in the Premier [...]
If Arsenal were looking for some sort of helping hand ahead of our latest attempt to reclaim the Premier League trophy, then we will have to look elsewhere than the Copa America tournament currently going on in Chile. We can still hope that our star man Alexis Sanchez and reported transfer addition Arturo Vidal get [.
The Arsenal transfer rumours this week have been moving us further and further away from the hope of securing the transfer of Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton, to the extent that the papers today had all but signed the Frenchman for our Premier League rivals Manchester United and moved Arsene Wenger on to the pursuit of [.
It was only just over a year ago that Arsenal signed up the France international defender Laurent Koscielny to a new long term contract, so in theory we should not have to worry too much about the Gunners losing our brilliant centre back. But with some recent Arsenal transfer rumours linking Real Madrid with Koscielny, [.
Apart from that harsh and ridiculous fine from the FA for using a mild swear word when celebrating Arsenal winning the FA cup for the second year in a row (seriously what was that all about?), the season ended very well for the Arsenal and England star Jack Wilshere. A stunning strike and some sterling [.
The Revolution of the Deeper Role. The birth of Intelligence. By Galen. Mathieu Flamini left Arsenal for Milan in 2008. We are now in 2015 and we have been having the same debate for the last 7 years. We want a defensive midfielder. I can't remember a summer passing without us analysing this position.
Obviously most of the Arsenal transfer rumours this morning are talking about Arturo Vidal's imminent arrival at the club, with many publications saying that it is a done deal. Now that Morgan Schneiderlin is going to Man United it is looking more likely that Vidal is heading our way. The Gunners legend Freddie Lunjberg is [.
Arsenal fans now have just one more week of nail biting and tension to endure before we know that all of our players will be ready for the big push for the Premier League title next season. If all goes well, this time next week will see an injury free Alexis Sanchez celebrating a Copa [...]
Name the player who was close to joining Arsenal and told his club of his wish to pursue the transfer? The same player even went on a mini-strike to portray his anger when the deal didn't go through. But, he pulled his socks for the rest of the season and put up a good performance [...]
Every transfer season, be it summer or winter, there remains a constant rumuor. And that rumour is that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is close to signing a striker. Every year without a doubt, every striker on the planet is linked with the club. And if reports are to be believed, they sign every other striker [.
After the reported Arsenal transfer target Jackson Martinez confirmed this week that he would be moving from Porto to Atletico Madrid, many Arsenal fans´ thoughts turned to the Argentina and Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain, who was the subject of a massive number of Arsenal transfer rumours when he was set to leave Real Madrid a [.
None of us really know what Arsene Wenger is planning for Arsenal on the transfer front this summer, but we can hazard an educated guess. It looks like the deal to bring in a top quality keeper is almost wrapped up and the football media are expecting an official announcement on the signing of Petr [.
Arsene Wenger may already have completed the first Arsenal signing of the summer, although not many Arsenal fans had heard of the young Romanian prospect Vlad Dragomir until the football media told us that he had signed for the Gunners earlier this week. But even if the news about the Chelsea keeper Petr Cech having [.
Look Arsenal fans, I am hoping that the transfer capture of Petr Cech from Chelsea, which will hopefully be announced on the Arsenal website this week, will not only make the Gunners into real Premier League title contenders straight away, but will help our Poland international Wojciech Szczesny to finally realise the awesome potential that [.
With four days remaining until the official opening day of the transfer window everyone is waiting for a flurry of big money bids for so-called "home-grown" players to fulfil the new FA regulations. From the start of next season every Premiership team must have at least 8 HG players in their squads. Man City are [.
Before the summer transfer window even opened, Arsene Wenger admitted that he would have to trim the squad in the coming months, hopefully for us to make room for some more top-class arrivals at the Emirates. "We are not in the need of absolute change," Wenger said . "We have a strong squad, we have [.
As far as I know, the Colombian international keeper David Ospina is still an Arsenal player, even though all of the Arsenal transfer rumours recently have been leading us to believe that Arsene Wenger was closing in on the Chelsea veteran Petr Cech and that it would be Wojciech Szczesny that was going to be [.
There were various Arsenal transfer rumours linking the club with a possible transfer capture of the Juventus and Chile international star Arturo Vidal during this summer transfer window before he set off with the Gunners' and the PFA fans' player of the season Alexis Sanchez for the Copa America tournament.
With rumors linking the club with players like Aubameyang and Vidal, it will surely put many squad members on notice. Danny Welbeck may not be hearing the warning bell yet but he would surely be thinking about the possibilities. When Welbeck moved from Manchester United to Arsenal, it surprised many people.
With it looking likely that Arsenal are now in the market for a top striker that could score the mythical 25 goals a season for the Gunners, we are being linked with many outlandish names in the transfer market. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is one for example, but it appears that Borussia Dortmund are not going to [.
There is one last bit of anxious waiting for Arsenal fans today, but as long as the medical team at the club do not find that the Czech Republic keeper has some never before realised problem that stops him getting the all clear, then Petr Cech will soon be confirmed as an Arsenal player, joining [...
Arsene Wenger could soon be running out of possible transfer targets that would give Arsenal the competition or cover up front that many think is essential if the Gunners are going to be able to wrestle the Premier League back to north London once again. Whether you think that our current first choice centre [.
Wojciech Szczesny must be in the middle of an unwanted dilemma. The Polish keeper at the start of last season wouldn't have imagined that he will end up where is now. He was the first choice keeper for the Gunners and looked good enough to nail the place. But ‘good enough' was not what the [...]
Vidal and Draxler to sign for Arsenal in AMAZING £50 million double swoop! by Midkemma (looking in his crystal ball!) Long time Arsenal target and German international, Julian Draxler, will make his long awaited journey to the Emirates this summer in an amazing big money deal between Arsenal and FC Schalke 04.
Things are not looking good for Arsenal, on the striker front at least, as this week has already seen the Arsenal fans´ hopes of completing the signing of two reported transfer targets dashed. But after Jackson Martinez was reported to be joining La Liga club Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund declared that they would not [.
This was definitely the most drawn out Arsenal transfer deal I have ever known, although I can imagine Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho shouting at each other over the conference table while discussing the price. I reckon that it only ended up at 10.9 million GBP because they flipped a coin for the final 100,000!
Arsenal fans have got clear reasons to not be too inclined to any feelings of warmth towards Harry Redknapp. Not only did 'arry manage our arch rivals Tottenham for a few years, he fathered Jamie who played for the spuds and just loves to give the Gunners some stick in his role as a football [...]
I know that Aaron Ramsey has been excellent for Arsenal at times, and I have also seen him in a terrible run of form at other times, (and he also spends his fair share of time in the treatment room) so I am of the opinion that he needs to build up his consistency first [...]
Earlier this week there was widespread coverage of a quote, purportedly from Lukas Podolski, in an obscure Turkish website. ‘I have agreed with Galatasaray,' he http://metro.co.uk/2015/06/23/lukas-podolski-confirms-hes-agreed-galatasaray-transfer-from-arsenal-5261764/. ‘I want to leave.' There are not many Arsenal fans that would be sad to see him go now, although many thought it was a mistake for Wenger to [.
Many Arsenal fans are seemingly worried about the fact that the new Real Madrid manager Rafael Benitez has become interested in signing our very own Laurent Koscielny as a replacement for the departing Sergio Ramos. We all agree that Kos has one of very best players for a long time, but as the Frenchman is [.
The current star of the Arsenal team Alexis Sanchez was on international duty again last night and he helped his Chile team mates defeat Uruguay in a hard fought Copa America quarter final to book their place in the semi-final. But he was lucky to come through the game unscathed as Uruguay put themselves about [.
I really hope it is Arsenal, but there could be a few clubs involved in these transfer talks with Southampton, with at least two Premier League rivals having been linked fairly heavily with the France international star Morgan Schneiderlin this summer. But as reported by The Mirror and revealed by Schneiderlin himself, we could soon [.
There may be a few Arsenal players, both past and present, who will be wanting a little word with our England international star Jack Wilshere after this. The 23-year old who has been with the club since he was nine years old was asked to name the best 11 players that he has played with [...]
Hi everyone, we are only at the 24th June now and the official transfer window doesn't yet open for another week, but there is lots of work being done by Arsenal on the transfer front, even if it just looks like Petr Cech if you look at all the papers. Let's give ourselves an update [...]
In one way, looking from an Arsenal perspective, you could be happy that England did not use our young defender Calum Chambers as they once again flopped at an international tournament. The Arsenal player has had no chance to pick up an injury and as the Three Lions are out of the Euro under 21 [...]
Possible ins and outs? When will be our first signing? by KM Hello everyone. Did you get your day rolling from the morning off? Whats up with the Arsenal news lately? Well we are at our usual Arsenal state of transfers. We're linked with some people, then the window seems like its frozen then some [.
Now it is all over. The rush to sign Porto forward Jackson Martinez can now be put to rest with the news that the Colombian striker has signed a four year contract with Spanish club Atletico Madrid. For a long while, clubs across the continent were linked with the proven striker. Even this summer there [.
Arsenal are not the only club that is said to be interested in the Southampton and France star Morgan Schneiderlin. Despite the fact that there have been Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with the all round midfielder for over a year now, our Premier League rivals Man United and Tottenham are also rumoured to be [.
Statistics and Econometrics could be very Misleading By Galen. I will first of all start by saying congrats to JS for the great reserch he made, and for gathering all the statistical evidence to come up with a solid case for Giroud. My argument is that for the first time in the last 10 years [...]
Officially the transfer market is yet to open but the Arsenal rumours never fail to flood the papers. Reportedly, the arrival of Petr Cech is done and dusted and is waiting to be announced. Not taking anything away from the last minute surprises, let us safely assume that Cech will be a Gunner this summer.
The Arsenal rumours so far..... by SB This transfer market is moving exactly the same way every transfer window goes for Arsenal – slow and painful links to players and nothing more. But what's comforting is the fact that nothing else is moving in the transfer market. So, let us look at who's been linked [.
Can Cech help us break the Mourinho voodoo? by SB Now this is one story that will refuse to die till the transfer is complete. The papers were abuzz with the news that Petr Cech has already signed for Arsenal. The Czech Republic goal keeper is reportedly open to joining the Gunners. But, the Chelsea [.
Arsenal's centre forward issue. Part 1: The mythical "25 goal" man ..by JS There appears a significant majority of fans who have decided Giroud needs to be sold/replaced if there is to be any chance at all of Arsenal winning the Premier League in the forseeable future. It is a simple proposition it is [.
Well we have all been waiting desperately for Arsenal to finally confirm that the Gunners have finally completed the deal for Chelsea's Petr Cech, but it has just been reported that there is likely to be an official announcement about Arsenal signing "one of the most talented players in Europe" before the Cech deal is [.
Arsenal's centre forward issue Part 2: A European perspective by JS The accepted opinion appears to be that we cannot win the Premier League with Giroud leading the line. I am not looking to change anyone's mind on this emotional subject. But for those of you who can perhaps broaden this out a little [.
Team Cohesion & Squad Additions by TJ I want to talk about Team Cohesion, the team system...the way we play. Great teams aren't made up of the best players by position. Building a team with the "best in positions" doesn't make a great team. The best managers will tell you that. You look for the [.
There have been various players that Arsene Wenger has turned to in an attempt to fill the very large gap left in the Arsenal side when our midfield star and captain Patrick Vieira left the club for Serie A and Juventus after scoring the penalty that handed the Gunners the last trophy that we were [.
He may have started only nine Premier League games last season, but I have a feeling that Arsenal are about to see the best of the England international Jack Wilshere. To do that, however, the club and Arsene Wenger will need to keep hold of the injury plagued midfielder and that may not be [...]
While Arsene Wenger seems content to bide his time over the Arsenal transfer business of the summer, it looks like our Premier League rivals are being much more proactive, especially the team we pipped to avoid the Champions League play-off games. Manchester United have already completed the transfer of the young Dutch forward Memphis Depay [.
Young Joel Campbell joined Arsenal as a talented 16 year-old with great promise shown with the Costa Rica national side. In the five years since then he has played 40 times for his country, but only had a paltry 4 appearances for the Gunners. Perhaps things would have been different if Campbell had been granted [.
There are very few pundits around, including Thierry Henry, who haven't told Arsene Wenger that Arsenal need to buy a Striker, a DM and a goalkeeper (only Cech of course) to give the Gunners a secure spine for next season's attack on the Premier League title. It is now all-but-certain that Petr Cech has fulfilled [.
Calum Chambers arrived at Arsenal from Southampton last summer and was immediately thrown in at the deep end due to our massive list of defensive injuries. Most fans were very happy with his early performances, but as our injured players returned and Hector Bellerin made the right-back spot his own, Chambers has returned to his [.
A world class keeper looks close, but it's not yet Cech-Mate for Arsenal! by KM Well, well, well! How've you been Gooners? I am excited by the Cech news the Mail landed yesterday, which appeared to be not such a done deal after all, with Cech's representatives coming out to say he's not yet agreed [.
I know all Arsenal fans are excited about the arrival of Petr Cech, but as Bob pointed out earlier, David Ospina must be the unluckiest Arsenal player ever. But then again it is only fair that the Colombian moves to get first team football as he is far too good to be a unplayed backup, [...]
Whether this means that Arsene Wenger is seriously considering using this Brazilian forward in the Arsenal first team, we will have to wait and see. But we do know that Wellington Silva is finally able to get his playing career with the Gunners underway, after finally being granted a UK work permit, a mere four [.
If the Arsenal transfer rumour mill has got it right, then Arsene Wenger will soon complete the signing of the brilliant and vastly experienced Petr Cech from Chelsea. And it appears as though the player that will then be our second choice keeper is Wojciech Szczesny, not David Ospina. I am not sure exactly what [.
There is no question that Arsenal suffered in the early stages of last season due to the World Cup hangover being felt by the Germany internationals in the side. Even though our centre back Per Mertesacker retired from international football after the tournament in Brazil, he has since admitted that it took around six months [.
This time last week all Arsenal fans had given up on signing the prolific Porto striker Jackson Martinez, with reports saying that the 28 year-old was just days away from agreeing to join AC Milan, but suddenly today Milan have decided to pull out of negotiations. Amid talks of AC Milan spending above their means [.
With Petr Cech seemingly very close to signing for Arsenal according to Sky Sports, Arsene Wenger has to decide on the futures of our three current keepers as we certainly don't need four shotstoppers draining our wages. Damien Martinez is obviously going out on loan again, but one of the other two are definitely surplus [.
There has been quite a lot said about the former Arsenal star Dennis Bergkamp in recent days, because the weekend marked the 20th anniversary of our incredibly talented Dutch master signing for the Gunners. The praise for the forward has been fulsome, with another former star Paul Merson going as far as telling Sky Sports [.
Arsenal fans are well aware that we can not count our chickens on any transfer until the contract is signed and sealed, as we know all too well that things can go awry at any time. Once bitten, twice shy and all that but most of us are fairly confident that the Chelsea keeper Petr [...]
After the Arsenal open-bus FA Cup parade, Jack Wilshere made it clear that he was an Arsenal fan through and through, and had to pay 40,000 GBP for the priviledge of insulting our closest rivals on live TV, but is he just a mercenary like all the rest? Wilshere was given a few chances to [...]
Arsene Wenger has developed a reputation of only signing players at the last minute to try and get the price reduced, but according to the Arsenal CEO, Ivan Gazidis, they do usually try to get the signings done early if possible. Look at Alexis Sanchez last summer, who was signed as soon as the World [.
The thing to remember about Arsenal transfer rumours is that crucial third word, rumours. Even the most confident sounding media report, and there are plenty about the Gunners signing Petr Cech from Chelsea at the minute, means very little until the deal is confirmed on the Arsenal website. But I still assume that some of [.
Why Arsene has got a massive Coq problem! But he may just have the solution for Arsenal.... Arsene has a problem it's big and delicate but it is the envy of many a manager in the EPL. Yes you guessed it, it is Coquelin and his rise in stature during the back end of [...]
It's an open secret that Arsenal is in the market for a goal keeper. It's again an open secret that Petr Cech is looking for more game time and aiming for a move away fromn Chelsea. It's another open secret that Cech wants to stay in London. Add one and one and you will get [...]
Santi Cazorla may have ruffled a few feathers when he recently claimed that Arsenal needs a ‘true, true striker'. That is, if the club wants to get back to winning trophies. Nacho Monreal too agreed on the same when he said that the club needs ‘another player who scores 25 goals per season'. They may [.
Although Arsene Wenger has taken a lot of the flak from Arsenal fans and the football media alike over the last decade, a lot of us can appreciate that the Frenchman was working with one hand tied behind his back. We are all fairly optimistic these days going in to a transfer window but up [...]
I don´t know why I am surprised really, because we Arsenal fans should be used to disappointment in the summer and winter transfer markets. And to be honest I do not expect Arsene Wenger to continue this way. I am sure the Frenchman has plans and knows what he wants to do, but it is [...]
We are now 10 days away from the official re-opening of the transfer window, and clubs have been working hard to get deals in place early. Arsenal are yet to complete an agreement to sign any senior players as of yet, but we do appear close to one or two... Petr Cech has been heavily [...]
Remembering one of Arsenal's best ever playeers, Dennis Bergkamp by TRJ There have been a few articles today commemorating the 20th anniversary of DB10's arrival at Arsenal. I remember clearly being in denial that this was some kind of cruel prank...it wasn't just Dennis but it was the Double D Dennis and David [.
There have been thousands of calls from Arsenal fans to secure a top holding midfielder and a marquee style super-striker this summer, but after the interest in Benedikt Howedes it seems probable that Wenger is also looking for a top class centre-back. If so, then surely he should be looking at a player described as [.
Arsenal's main objective this transfer window must be a young strong holding midfielder, and according to many pundits, the best of the more youthful ones available right now is Sporting Lisbon's William Carvalho. Gareth Southgate took a classy experienced England U21 side to the World Cup, but Carvalho was the dominant player as Portugal outclassed [.
Can Arsenal even get our targets this Summer? by Galen In the last two years, the FFP rules seemed to be shaping up nicely, with many clubs such as Arsenal, Atletico de Madrid and Lyon closing the gap on the so-called Chelsea's, PSG and Madrids of this world. UEFA had agreed on a set of [...]
Wenger's tough transfer choices by Sam P Even though the summer transfer window does not open for another couple of weeks, there have already been hunders, possibly thousands, of different Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with players from World Cup and Champions League winners to unheard of but 'promising' youngsters.
Although Arsenal fans were able to celebrate St. Totteringham's day nice and early this year, with our north London rivals never even looking like they would give us a run for our money in the second half of last season, the spuds did come out on top in the head to head battle. After beating [...]
Arsenal players ask for signings to win the title. by Konstantin Mitov Hello fellow Gooners. In a transfer window almost as silent as "Silent Stan Kroenke" the only rumour running around Arsenal is Petr Cech. Now we all know that Szczezny won't cut it and Ospina had another howler for Columbia, so Cech would be [.
It seemed like one of those boring non-Arsenal transfer rumours yesterday when the German international Benedikt Howedes revealed that he had turned down a move to Arsenal in favour of extending his contract with Schalke in the Bundesliga. Mesut Ozil recently told the world that Howedes would be perfect to play in the Premier League, [.
Good old Ivan Gazidis has come in for a lot of stick from Arsenal fans over the years, especially when he has made claims of Arsenal spending fortunes when we were actually selling our best players. On Friday Gazidis attended the annual meeting with Supporters groups and it seemed to have been very civilized.
Well when I say the latest, there have been Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with a move for the Borussia Dortmund and Germany international star Sven Bender before, but those were in previous transfer windows and nothing ever happened, at least not that we know of. The 26-year old does seem to fit the Wenger [.
Even though the Germany international Mesut Ozil came back from his long injury spell to produce his best football for Arsenal since Arsene Wenger surprised us all by smashing the club transfer record to sign him from Real Madrid, it is still fair to say that the jury is still out on our playmaker, both [.
The goalkeeping situation at Arsenal is certainly providing it´s fair share of Arsenal transfer rumours at the moment, with the possible future of the two current Gunners Wojciech Szczesny and David Ospina up in the air as well as the will he, won´t he, will they let him saga concerning Chelsea and Petr Cech.
Does Arsenal need a new captain by Galen. Arsenal have had some great captains and great leaders in the past. They didn't just captain Arsenal but they captained their countries as well. I think of Adams and Viera. In the last couple of years we have changed captains like a pub team. From Gallas to [.
Cazorla in his own words. By Galen We had a great end to the season with our FA victory. But while 95% of our players are going on about us winning the title, Sanchez and Cazorla seem to be the only players who are not boasting about like kids. Sanchez called the season 'a disapointment' [...]
There have been many discussions about Arsenal's failings last season and how they can improve on those performances in the next campaign. Most Arsenal players think that we have improved considerably as the season progressed, and Hector Bellerin simply thinks we need to keep up our end-of-season form to figure in the title race next [.
What Arsenal want, what Arsenal need, what's the difference? by JA Hey guys, great end to the season it was. I know most of you must have enjoyed it. There's been much debate on multiple Arsenal forums around the world regarding what transfers Arsenal should make. Case in point, Just Arsenal, the arguments become pretty [.
The Porto striker Jackson Martinez was reportedly 'a few days' from joining AC Milan last week, but now it seems he has not yet decided which team he will be playing for next season, with Arsenal being strongly linked since last summer. The Colombian striker is currently at the Copa America, but in an interview [.
There are so many stories about Chelsea's Petr Cech being a done deal this morning that it is hard not to accept it is going to happen, but IF it is confirmed then there are other questions that need to be raised. Today's Star has reported that the Arsenal goalkeeping coach, Tony Roberts, has gone [.
Assuming that the Arsenal transfer rumours are on the matrk, of course, and with the generally reliable Sky Sports reporting it then it looks likely, Arsene Wenger is about to face a serious transfer attack from our Premier League trivals Man City. The player in question is our England international midfielder Jack Wilshere and even [.
Cazorla staying put! by SB Santi Cazorla was one of the best players for Arsenal last season. His performances helped the Gunners retain the FA cup and made Arsene Wenger choose Cazorla as the Gunners' player of the season. The Spanish international thrived in a deep-lying midfield role and his performances didn't go unnoticed.
I must admit that I think Tomas Rosicky was, and probably sill is, a fantastic footballer, but I am also becoming a bit tired of his whining and moaning about not being in the Arsenal first team very often. Every time he is put in front of a microphone he uses the opportunity to whine [...]
It is unfortunate on the player that he will replace of course, but the Arsenal and England international defender Calum Chambers has been handed a fantastic chance to impress Gareth Southgate in the opening game of the Euro under 21 tournament for England. As reported by the BBC today, the young Everton centre back John [.
Arsenal are yet to agreeto sign any new first-team squad members, whilerivals Liverpool and Manchester United have alreadylanded some key signings. We do appear to be working on improving our squad none-the-less, and I'll give you a run-down on the latest speculation regarding our market moves. Lukas Podolski is claimedto have agreed a move to [.
I am putting two and two together here and I may have got five, but there are good reasons for Arsenal fans to believe that Arsene Wenger could now be on the verge of completing the transfer of one of the very best strikers in Europe. Jackson Martinez may not be quite in the same [...]
There may have been a few international games recently, but I am sure that most of us Arsenal fans cannot wait for the Gunners to get back into action. Even with the Copa America, the Women's World Cup and the Euro under 21 tournament, life for a football fan is a bit of a sad [...]
If you ask any group of Arsenal fasn what the most important signing that Arsene Wenger has to make this summer, you would expect 90% of them to say that we need a new top defensive midfielder to share the load with Francis Coquelin. One of the best young players in that position is the [...]
Arsenal Takeover? by SB The richest businessman of Africa wants to purchase Arsenal football club. Aliko Dangote is a Nigerian billionaire who is best known for being 67th on the Forbes rich list. He now wants to top it by pulling a coup of buying Arsenal. Dangote is a self-professed fan of the Gunners.
When I was a lad my mum used to keep a big jar in the front room, and anyone whose swore in front of her had to put 10p into the fund, which was presumably used to buy some soap to wash out the offenders mouths! But I don't think that jar would be nearly [...]
There has been a lot of talk in recent years about the way Arsenal Football Club has been run under Arsene Wenger and more specifically, since the American billionaire Stan `silent Stan´ Kroenke kept increasing his take and became the major shareholder. Arsene Wenger has been criticised for his transfer tactics but the Frenchman has [.
A lot will still depend on what happens with Arsenal when the final draw is made for the Champions League group stages on August 29th, but looking at how the Premier League games fall for the Gunners around and about the dates of our UCL group games, we could have a problem on our hands, [...]
Usually, or at least when I have placed a bet on some sporting event, I want nothing more than whichever bookie has taken the bet to be left out of pocket. But with my Arsenal fan head on, I hope that the online bookmakers Betfair have got this one bang on. According to a Metro [...]
This deal has not been officially announced yet and there could still be more developments on the future of the Arsenal and England right back Carl Jenkinson, but The Mirror are reporting that the details of a potential loan deal that would see the 23-year old playing in the Premier League for Sunderland next season.
The Gunners had a terrible start to the last Premier League campaign after a lot of the Arsenal players were suffering from a 'World Cup hangover', and Arsene Wenger has already said that Alexis Sanchez will be getting a month off after his Copa America exploits this summer. So it is good to see that [.
I am including the Arsenal right back Carl Jenkinson in this as well as Calum Chambers and Serge Gnabry, even though it looks like Jenks will be spending another season on loan away from the Emirates stadium. After a good season with West Ham, a good summer tournament with England could really help him to [.
This is the sort of Arsenal transfer rumour that used to send a chill down the spine of the average Gooner. But that was back in the lean years when the club was asking Arsene Wenger to somehow keep the team close to the top of the Premier League table and therefore in the lucrative [...]
Are you listening Arsene Wenger? If Arsenal fans are going to have more than a domestic cup to celebrate next summer, then you are going to have to listen to what the former Arsenal and France super striker Thierry Henry said about needing more than just Olivier Giroud up front next season. That is the [.
When Roy Hodgson first started using the Arsenal and England international star Jack Wilshere as his deepest lying midfielder, a lot of us thought the England boss had lost the plot. We had always seen young Jack as a box to box player or even a number 10 where his ability to burst past players [...]
It appears that the belief and confidence is really flowing around Arsenal Football Club at the moment. A very strong finish to the Premier League season, even though it was not enough to make up for the early stages, has certainly helped that belief. And the winning mentality that was missing for so long as [.
I am sure that Matt Le Tissier would much rather that the Arsenal transfer target Morgan Schneiderlin changed his mind about leaving altogether, because the former England international was a true one club man and still clearly has the best interests of that club Southampton at heart. Schneiderlin has made it clear that he wants [.
Internationals. How did our boys Do? By Galen. It has been a good week of International football for most of the Arsenal players. I watched a few games to see how they fared and, like always, you are impressed with some and disappointed with others. Where do I start with oh yeahhhh... The Good [...]
There were many reports that Petr Cech was going to talk to the Chelsea heirarchy yesterday about his proposed departure from Jose Mourinho's team. But whatever Petr was up to, his coach at Chelsea, Christophe Lollichon, was talking to a French radio station about Cech's departure from Stamford Bridge.
There was a lot of talk and speculation about Arsenal and what Arsene Wenger needs to do in the summer transfer window to give the Gunners the right quality and strength in depth to push on again and claim the Premier League title at the end of next season. The smart money seemed to be [...]
After many Arsenal transfer rumours linking the Gunners with the Chelsea and Czech Republic keeper Petr Cech, Arsenal fans are hoping that we get some good news on the move this week, after Sky Sports reported that the 33-year old held the eagerly awaited meeting with officials from his current club yesterday.
We fans of Arsenal have been guilty of this ourselves, with a large number still getting on the back of our centre forward Olivier Giroud at any opportunity. So we should not have been surprised to see a lot of blame aimed at the big man after a couple of below par performances saw the [...]
One of the biggest Arsenal transfer rumours of the summer so far has been the one linking us with the Porto and Combia international front man Jackson Martinez. And with an awesome goal scoring record of 92 goals from just 132 games in his three seasons in Portugal, a lot of Arsenal fans were looking [.
The Arsenal and Germany international star Mesut Ozil is clearly full of confidence at the moment. The creative midfielder proved his class once again over the weekend, tearing the recently former Gibraltar side to pieces and claiming three assists into the bargain as he helped his country get one step closer to the Euro 2016 [.
BOOM!(only joking) Arsenal squad value revealed! by JS I saw a brilliant article on another Arsenal forum that looked at a study produced by the Football Observatory site in which various player attributes are combined to work out the worth of the players, and these values are then aggregated to provide a valuation for [.
Did you see it Arsenal fans? If not I would not bother watching the whole replay of the England win over Slovenia, as a lot of it was not great, but you simply have to watch the England goals, especially the first two as they were both scored by the Arsenal player Jack Wilshere. The [...]
Hleb makes the Gunners' day! by IO How do you know you are an Arsenal fan? It is how you react when you read some news about Arsenal; like the one in the Metro about how Alexandr Hleb sold Fabregas a cold shoulder before the Belarus Euro 2016 qualifier game with Spain in Skopje. Hleb [...]
The Ultimate Arsenal Footballer. by Galen I saw a TV programme about the Ultimate Footballer, so I wanted to do something similar in relationship to Arsenal FC. I wanted to ask Arsenal fans what they think is the ultimate Arsenal player. Maybe this will give us something else to talk about rather than about transfers.
The Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere scored his first England goal in style and followed it up with another screamer to help maintain Englands 100% record in the Euro2016 Qualifiers, and he hopes that this will be the start of his proper career in the national team, like some of his previous heroes..
Arsenal only need Cech by Sam P I am pretty sure that I am not the only Arsenal fan who is already worried about the lack of any real signs of action from Arsene Wenger in the transfer market. The Frenchman does not seem too bothered about any perceived lack of quality in the squad, [...]
There is much concentration on the Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds, but if you were Arsene Wenger you would also be looking at how our youth players are progressing to see if they are good enough to promote to the first team. Players like Serge Gnabry who has been brilliant for the U21s since [.
England not picking Walcott was a travesty by Sam P I have got a sneaking suspicion that Roy Hodgson was busy, on holiday or simply could not be bothered to watch the last few games played by Arsenal as we finished the season with a bang. Why else would the England boss have chosen to [...]
There is a dearth of new Arsenal transfer rumours regarding incoming players, despite Chelsea, Man United and Liverpool already having strengthened their squads, but then again, Arsene Wenger ALWAYS leaves his buying until the last minute. But there are a few regarding present Arsenal players that could be freeing up space in the squad.
There is little doubt that the Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez will be a major factor for Arsenal if we are to challenge for the Premier League title next season, no matter which top, top players the manager might bring in to the club during the summer transfer window. His overwhelming vote as the Arsenal fans' [.
I guess there are many Arsenal fans that are of the opinion that it would be good for the Gunners if Chelsea sign Radamel Falcao, who has had an unbelievably bad season at Manchester United and if he keeps misfiring he will hardly be an asset to our rivals. But there is another thread of [...]
Chambers, Jenkinson, Debuchy and Bellerin? What should Arsene do? By Galen Last summer I was 100% certain that a certain Serge Aurier would be the Arsenal Right-back this season. Like most Arsenal fans I was surprised we went for Calum Chambers. What even surprised me the most was that Wenger paid £12million for a 29 [.
OUR DEFENSE WILL WIN US THE LEAGUE by Uche Hello everyone. It seems like every week, we lose one of our supposed transfer targets. Paolo Dybala chose Juventus and Jackson Martinez is off to Milan. But I don't know if I am the only one who isn't really troubled by any of this. I have [...]
I am not sure who told them that money was going out of fashion and had to be used up as quickly as possible, but Arsenal Football Club and everyone connected with it should be seriously concerned about the noise coming out of the Etihad stadium right now. If the transfer rumours concerning our Premier [.
Arsenal's captain Mikel Arteta has been at the club since the summer of 2011 and he is really impressed with our massive improvement in that short time. The Spanish magician missed most of last season through injury but it seems the 33 year-old will be given a one-year extension by Wenger and if so he [.
One of the best and most encouraging things about the season just gone for Arsenal, after a pretty shoddy start to proceedings, was the strength in depth on offer to Arsene Wenger with his team selection. There is now very strong competition for most of the places in the starting line up, whereas before it [.
Perhaps this particular bit of Arsenal news may be something to do with the reports yesterday that the Gunners would not be completing the transfer of the Colombian international star Jackson Martinez from Porto after all, despite a growing number of Arsenal transfer rumours claiming that he was the top of Arsene Wenger's wish list.
To paraphrase a Johnny Cash song, Arsenal are NOT going to Jackson, and Jackson Martinez is not going to Arsenal, as the prolific Porto front man is apparently on the verge of agreeing a transfer to play for the Serie A club AC Milan. I am not going to roll out words like snubbed though, [...]
Although Arsenal may have just finished another season with, what us fans would class as, an early exit from the Champions League and a gap to the Premier League champions that was too big to reasonably claim that we were close to the title, the Arsenal and England international with rockets in his boots, Theo [.
Composure is the name of the game. By Galen. It is common knowledge that since the departure of 'Judas', Arsenal fans have been asking for a new striker. The manager have insisted that, in Olivier Giroud, we have one of the top strikers in Europe. In all fairness to the manager Giroud has made great [.
The never-ending saga of Chelsea's Petr Cech moving to Arsenal seems to be nearing the final scenes, with the whole world and his dog reporting that talks will be 'accelerated' next week. It will be a blow to David Ospina, who could be left out in the cold after having a fantastic six months as [...]
It would seem that Arsene Wenger is keeping to his promise to offload some Arsenal players that are surplus to requirements to make room for some top quality arrivals, and it is nigh on certain that Lukas Podolski will be the first one to be out the door. The Galatasaray manager Hamza Hamzaoğlu has already [.
Arsenal are Brilliant, But not Killers. By Galen Arsenal have made remarkable improvements in the last 6 months which has made everyone believe we can challenge next season. Super Jack credits better planning as one of the reasons. "This year we've started to analyse the teams a little bit more," "We're going there with a [.
It has been reported today that Arsenal are being charged by the English FA as we have apparently breached some transfer rules when signing the young England international Calum Chambers from Southampton almost a year ago. The agent involved in the deal has also been brought up on charges after an un-named third party complained [.
Another boring day in the window. I have visited most Arsenal forums today and about 80% of fans don't want Pipita. I am struggling to understand why? It is not every day that a world class striker becomes available and fans are saying 'no we don't want this'. Its like a kid in the sweet [...]
Arsenal fans were already well aware that the board of Manchester United would be handing their manager Louis van Gaal a massive transfer war chest to throw at their problems this summer. But from looking at how much the £150 million or so that the Dutchman spent last summer helped them, we were not exactly [.
If this news is true, then it could be a blow to the hopes of Arsenal fans in having a successful and encouraging summer of spending in the transfer market, as well as being a blow to the plans of Arsene Wenger, unless the Frenchman does agree to up the offer for the Monaco and [...]
I suppose it all depends on how reliable this man is and whether he really has got some inside information on the transfer dealings of his former club, but most Arsenal fans will certainly be hoping that the Napoli legend Jose Alberti is right when he says that Gonzalo Higuain will be leaving the Serie [.
The Porto striker Jackson Martinez has been linked with Arsenal for nearly a year, but it was recently thought that the Gunners had lost any chance of signing him as his agent and his club had begun discussions with AC Milan regarding a move to Serie A. But now it appears that Martinez is stalling [.
We are all aware that Tomas Rosicky has made it clear that he wants to leave Arsenal so that he can actually play every week rather than sit on the bench, and we also know that Arsene Wenger has upset the Czech international by exercising the club's right to extend his contract by another 12 [...]
I don't know about the rest of you Arsenal fans out there, but I have been starting to worry about Arsene Wenger and his determination to ensure that the Gunners have enough players of sufficient quality to push on for the Premier League title, rather than hoping that we do not suffer from too many [.
There were quite a few Arsenal transfer rumours last summer that suggested that Arsene Wenger was one of the club managers that were hoping to add the Croatian international star Mario Mandzukic to his playing staff. We do not know for sure if that is true, but if so, the Frenchman should be very interested [.
Alexis Sanchez has won Arsenal's Player-of-the-Season in his first year at the club, and it is obvious to everyone who has watched him play that he has endless energy and enthusiasm to play football. The Chilean recently said that he was 'disappointed' that the Gunners did not win the League or reach the Champions League [.
Have Arsenal really got rid of Diaby ? Alexis talks success! by KM Wow there! Hot news in the Arsenal transfer news! We've released... Abou Diaby. I think that in the list of players whose careers got ruined by injury, Diaby would be undoubtedly in the top five. He had the raw potential. I remember [.
This battle between two of our current Arsenal players could have much wider repercussions. First of all, however, both Carl Jenkinson and Calum Chambers will be hoping that the England under 21 coach Gareth Southgate puts them in his starting line up tonight. The game against the under 21s of Belarus is the last friendly [.
Would you pay £24m for a striker if you thought he was guaranteed to bang in goals in the Premiership? Or more to the point would Arsene Wenger splash out that amount of money if he thought that this man could be the missing part of the jigsaw that won him the Premiership title? Well [...]
Casillas V Cech – Why the Spain's undisputed Number One would be an ideal fit for Arsenal by Sleigh I have it on good authority that Iker Casillas will be Arsenal's first signing this summer. With that it got me thinking, who would be the better keeper? I came up with one conclusion.... Whilst Petr [.
Can Arsenal match the ambition of Alexis? By Galen. When I think of Alexis Sanchez I think of the word "winner". Maybe I am a biased Arsenal fan, but is Hazard really as far from Sanchez as the media make it out to be? I have watched videos and games and looked at statistics and [...]
So now we all know that some of Jack Wilshere's family are NOT Arsenal fans, in fact some of them support Tottenham! We may never have found this out if the FA had not charged our young terrier with bringing the game into disrepute for singing some bawdy anti-Spurs chants during the FA Cup-Winning Parade.
Just as I wrote yesterday evening, the fact that Abou Diaby was on the list of Arsenal's released players yesterday it does not mean that he will be leaving the club. This has now been confirmed by a journalist working for L'Equipe. The correspondent Bruno Constant has announced that the midfielder is still talking to [.
England may have looked like wilting violets in their game against Ireland last week, but now they come to the serious Euro Qualifying match in Slovenia and they are looking to keep their 100% record in the group games so far. England won the Wembley fixture 3-1 in November but this return leg won't be [.
The Liverpool defender and Scary Monster Martin Skrtel is feeling insulted by the new contract on offer at Anfield and could be leaving the club this summer. The Slovakian hardman may be 30 years old but he has seemed to improve with age, and has today admitted that he would be willing to move to [..
Yes okay the fact is that Abou Diaby is on the list of Arsenal's released players that was announced today, but Gooners should be aware that that doesn't mean he WILL NOT be at the Emirates next season! This list is for all players that are approaching the end of their current contracts without having [.
It all seems just too good to be true, but if there is any truth in the old adage that 'There is no smoke without fire' then we can take it as a given that Petr Cech will be signing for Arsenal in the very near future. Apparently the rich Arabs at Paris St Germain [...]
Not a lot happening in the transfer market by KM Hello everyone! Summer is coming and football is out until August. So whats there to talk about? Not a lot really, apart from a few Jose Mourinho comments of course. They always seem to come around and more often than not they have a dig [...]
At the time of writing this article, the Arsenal website had not revealed which player had been voted by the fans as our best performer this season. But with Santi Cazorla in third and Francis Coquelin in second, it does not take a genius to work out that Alexis Sanchez will be the number one. [...]
If I was given the choice as to which of the two strikers I would rather have in the Arsenal side, I would go for the Germany international Lukas Podolski without a moment's hesitation. So maybe the title is a little harsh on the World Cup winner, but his current situation does remind me a [...]
Family and Emotional Clubs and The Ruthless Clubs. by Galen Arsenal has a great tradition and history. One that we are very proud of. When you think about Arsenal in one word you think of "Class". In the way in which we play or the way we take care of our players and the way [...]
Ozil, Cazorla and Rambo. The Arsenal problem. The Arsenal Way. by Galen The big question for next season has been how are we going to fit Ozil, Cazorla and Rambo together. Rambo has made it clear that he has spoken to his manager about it and the manager has said its a temporary situation. There [...
One of the biggest revelations for Arsenal this season was the lucky break of bringing Francis Coquelin back from his loan period at Charlton. He was understandably worried that he would just be a bench-warmer, as he has been for most of his Arsenal career, and it still took a while before Arsene Wenger became [.
This could all be something that has been cooked up the people who write the Arsenal transfer rumours, possibly because they are desperate for something to write about while Arsene Wenger plays his transfer cards close to his chest. I certainly hope so. If not, then the Arsenal fans have good reason to be concerned [.
I am not saying that the Arsenal and Germany midfield star Mesut Ozil has had a disaster of a season. Far from it in fact and I think it shows a great attitude and highlights the team spirit among the Gunners, that Ozil has come out with fulsome praise for his Spanish team mate Santi [...]
Even though it is looking very good for Arsenal and our hopes of completing this very important piece of transfer business, we still have at least a week to wait before we know for sure whether the Chelsea and Czech Republic keeper Petr Cech will be playing for the Gunners next season or not. As [...
Transfer systems. Who should be in charge of Arsenal's transfers? by Galen Every football club have got a transfer system and a process. Loads of Arsenal fans have complained about our system. So I took this opportunity to look at our transfer system and that of other top football clubs. The Presidential System.
The first thing that Arsenal need to do to give Theo Walcott any chance of having the sort of effect for Arsenal and England that Cristiano Ronaldo has for Real Madrid and Portugal, is to keep him at the club. Reading between the lines of what Theo has been saying since helping the Gunners to [...]
Arsenal do already have two players involved in the Copa America tournament being held in Chile this summer, with our brilliant forward Alexis Sanchez representing the home nation and our Keeper David Ospina likely to be the number one for Colombia. And we could soon have another reason to watch Ospina's country's games, as the [.
Arsenal's little Mozart Tomas Rosicky was complaining about not getting any game time before the Christmas transfer window, but it seems that Arsene Wenger threw him a few bones by putting our Number 7 on the pitch for a few games. The Czech's contract was set to end in June but Arsene Wenger took up [.
The Arsenal and Germany striker Lukas Podolski has just one year left on his current contract with the Gunners and as he did not cost us too much when we signed him from Cologne three years ago we will not be looking for much of a transfer fee. But one potential sale of the out [...]
Arsenal's Tactical Evolution by TJ Both Wenger and Guardiola are believers/disciples of the Rinus Michels school of total football. Both Wenger and Guardiola build teams which are distinguishable by 3 characteristics skill, speed and intelligence. Both managers crave creativity in all players not just the attacking players.
While Arsene Wenger seems to be in no rush whatsoever to add any players to the Arsenal squad, some of our Premier League rivals are getting stuck right into the summer transfer window. Man United had already wrapped up the signing of the young Dutch forward Memphis Depay before the season finished and now it [.
There are many Arsenal transfer rumours flying around the football world at the minute, despite the fact that the official transfer window does not open until the 1st of July. However, the rules do not stop clubs in the same association completing transfers, so any player currently in the Premier League could become an Arsenal [.
Liverpool Pundits by Galen Whenever Liverpool pundits seem to talk about Arsenal I always feel as if they should be working on Liverpool TV rather than working at Sky or BT sport. Let me start with ... Phil Thompson. This is what he had to say after Arsenal confirmed the signing of Alexis Sanchez . [.
Just one week on from the joy of celebrating a second FA cup triumph in a row, this weekend proved to be chastening experience for the Arsenal players on international duty. So it was back down to earth with a bump for the Gunners in the France and England squads. Kieran Gibbs had to watch [...]
The future of Arsenal by TJ It appears that Shad Forsythe has begun to work his magic with the reduction in "player days lost to injuries" and getting players back ahead of schedule. But that's not the only significant change happening in the background. When Liam Brady retired, Wenger brought in Andries Jonker to head [.
With the Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere being the only England player that seemed to be trying to win the game against Republic of Ireland yesterday, it was no surprise that the match was a drab and unexciting game that leaves England still waiting for a win over the men in green. But as much as [.
CAN OUR MEDICAL TEAM OR PHYSIO DO BETTER FOR ARSENAL? by Galen In the last week I have been explaining the importance of Arsenal getting a world class striker and a world class Defensive midfielder. But after watching the Champions League Final yesterday I have come to the conclusion that injuries is one of the [.
How to best use Arsenals transfer budget – don't buy a striker! By: Supertuur Reading the newspapers there are lots of strikers being linked with Arsenal. Arsenal reportedly have £50 million to spend on transfers, and if we include some money from player sales this could be £70-75 million. Now how do Arsenal spend this [.
I am missing club football already, even though Arsenal only finished the season a week ago in high style by smashing Aston Villa into little pieces and lifting the FA cup trophy. So I was really looking forward to seeing some of our Gunners in action for England against Republic of Ireland in Dublin today.
There is a lot of optimism and belief among the Arsenal fans that the future is looking bright for the club. Arsene Wenger and the players share this confidence and we all have good reason to do so after producing the most balanced and impressive football of any club in the Premier League since the [.
The general idea for Arsenal when we loan out one of our squad players is to give them the regular playing time to gain experience, match fitness and to help them progress and be ready to come back and shine for the Gunners. But it does not always work out according to plan. It has [...]
I am not saying that Arsenal will be able to win the transfer battle for the Real Madrid and France international star Karim Benzema, because there will be plenty of big clubs getting in line to sign one of the best strikers in Europe and the World. The main reason that I did not think [...]
There have already been hundreds of articles written about Jack Wilshere's behavious at the celebration of Arsenal's FA Cup win, and this has culminated in him being charged by the FA as well as getting a slap on the wrist from Arsene Wenger. Now the England manager Roy Hodgson has put in his tuppence worth [.
Hold up you Gunners... We don't need a striker! Marco Reus is who we require... by CE First off, I would like to congratulate the Arsenal team and coach for a sensational 2014/2015 season. Though the games against Monaco and our loss at home to Swansea left me thinking whether we are back where we [.
The FIFA Women's World Cup kicks off in Canada on Tuesday and their are five Arsenal Ladies in the England squad that is aiming for their first ever appearance in a World Final, despite there being 24 countries in the hat for the first time ever. The Gunners taking part for England are Goalkeeper Siobhan [.
At the grand old age of 26, Theo Walcott feels it is time to kick on in his career for Arsenal and England. He feels like he is playing well most of the time, but wants to more like Ronaldo by being more consistent and influencing every single game. "If I want to be known [...]
As most UK Arsenal fans know by know, BT Sport are taking over from Sky's coverage of the Champions League next year so they have brought in some Arsenal players to promote the fact. There will be an ad from Arsenal's dressing room going out soon and they have given us this EXCLUSIVE BT SPORT [...]
While Arsene Wenger was having to try and keep Arsenal winning in four competitions with almost a full team of players missing due to various injury and fitness problems, I was always surprised to hear members of the football media and even Arsenal fans dismiss the affect that this was having. I wonder if those [.
I think we can safely say that Arsene Wenger will not be pursuing this one of the multitude of Arsenal transfer rumours flooding the football media at the moment. Not unless the Frenchman's new found willingness to change his team tactics represents a seismic shift in his personality that is. We all know that the [.
Wenger to build two different Arsenals by Sam P One of the biggest things achieved by Arsene Wenger at Arsenal in recent years is the formation of a plan B, something that many football observers were beginning to believe was a foreign idea to the prof. It is still true that the boss wants his [...]
Why We Don't Desperately Need a Goalkeeper by TJ On the question of the goalkeeper. We have Ospina, Szczesny and Martinez with Ospina having recently joined Arsenal. Statistically Ospina has had a fine season and Szczesny is pressing to earn the No 1 jersey. This is good healthy competition for all 3 keepers, and I [.
On the face of it, the Arsenal and France striker was well and truly outshone by his new team mate Alexis Sanchez this season and so many Arsenal fans and football fans in general were in agreement with the club legend Thierry Henry when he launched into a criticism of Giroud recently. And Giroud has [.
It seemed like the least best kept Arsenal transfer rumour so far when it seemed all but certain that the Gunners were going to get the Juventus star Arturo Vidal as competition for Francis Coquelin next season, but now it seems very far from clear-cut at all. Not only have other big teams become interested, [.
The young Welsh international Aaron Ramsey made it quite clear a few weeks ago that he was unhappy being played out on the wings for Arsenal, and he told Arsene Wenger that he is much better in the centre. Of course everyone already knew that, but Wenger has persisted in using Ramsey down the wings, [.
The international transfer window hasn't even opened yet, but according to the Arsenal rumours doing the rounds Arsene Wenger has already made approaches for Petr Cech, Arturo Vidal, Jackson Martinez, Morgan Schneiderlin, Gonzalo Higuain and many many more, and if we get all of them we will DEFINITELY be in the hunt for the title!
Ian Wright is such an Arsenal fan that it often interferes with his ability to be impartial in his role as a TV pundit and football journalist, but then again the same can be said of most of the former footballers working on the other side of the game these days and with all the [...]
Why We Don't Desperately Need A Defensive Midfielder by TJ First of all let's look at the role a key defensive asset for the team, a player who offers support to the defensive line, closes the space between defence and midfield, breaks up play of the opposition, and looks to start attacks as they [..
I am so glad for the Arsenal and England international star Jack Wilshere that his season ended on a high note, forgetting about the storm in a teacup that is the FA charge after his taunting of the spuds. By and large, however, it was another season of frustration due to injury for the talented [...
It would appear that Arsene Wenger's claim that he and Arsenal were not in transfer mode before we wrapped up the FA cup trophy for the second year running may not have been entirely true. Shock! Either that or the Frenchman and the people who assist him with the transfer side of things have been [..
There is just under two months until our next competitive match, which will be against Chelsea in the Community Shield on August 2, but in the mean-time,teams are actively working on deals to strengthen their clubs. Victor Wanyama has sent out a come-and-get-me plea to Arsenal, by admitting 'it would be nice' to play for [.
It's that time of the year, the season is now over and it's transfer speculation that fills the back pages. One rumour that has caught the attention of many is Barcelona's reported interest in the Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey. Opta-powered fantasy football game www.oulala.com have taken a look at the Welshman's performance data from the [.
Over the last couple of summer transfer windows, Arsene Wenger has broken spending records with his signings and it it is being reported that this will happen again this year. The Frenchman is apparently planning to beat last summer´s splashing of the cash by spending the best part of £100 million to bring in the [.
So I guess that the talks between Arsenal and the representatives of one of our top transfer targets of the summer have been pretty positive, as they are to be followed by a transfer bid of around £30 million for Gonzalo Higuain, according to the latest Arsenal transfer rumour being reported by the Daily Star.
Why We Don't Desperately Need ..... by TJ In 2014/15 we saw the addition of Alexis Sanchez, Callum Chambers, Matthieu Debuchy, David Ospina, Gabriel Paulista, Kristian Bileik and some youngsters for the Academy. Not really a quiet year for Arsenal! We strengthened in a few areas and made some good replacement buys.
I wrote an article recently about my concerns that Arsene Wenger's transfer business for Arsenal this summer could be at serious risk from our Premier League rivals Manchester United. I was mainly talking about the situation with David De Gea going to Real Madrid meaning that we would be after the same transfer targets but [.
I am assuming that the Arsenal transfer rumours were right and that Arsene Wenger was trying to complete the transfer of the England international James Milner from Man City, because if not then the title of this post makes no sense. But just yesterday we were hearing that the Gunners were one of the clubs [.
If this had happened a year ago then I do not think that too many Arsenal fans would have been all that bothered, because the Spanish international Nacho Monreal had not had the most impressive first full season as a Gunner. He was clearly the second choice behind our England international Kieran Gibbs and seemed [.
If Arsene Wenger does manage to complete the transfer of Raheem Sterling to Arsenal this summer, it will be against the wishes of his current club Liverpool who are still hoping to convince the young England international to sign a new contract and to continue his football development under Brendan Rodgers at Anfield.
I hope that the Arsenal and England forward Theo Walcott realises that Arsene Wenger has given his international career a massive shot in the arm. And hopefully the pacy 26-year old will consider that during the contract negotiations that could drag on through the summer. Not only did the Frenchman give Walcott a place in [.
The Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that Arsene Wenger is finally closing in on the signature of the Argentina international striker Gonzalo Higuain are growing by the day and a lot of Arsenal fans are hoping that they prove to be true, but I am not one of them. Yes he has had a good season [...]
The ongoing debate about which is the best defensive midfielder that Arsenal could buy this summer as backup to our new central general Francis Coquelin, and the consensus up 'til now has focused on the Southampton star Morgan Schneiderlin, but today it is being reported that his Saints team-mate Victor Wanyama has publicly announced his [.
In the last few transfer windows Arsenal fans have clamoured for Wenger to go out and buy a beast of a defensive midfielder, but there didn't seem to be any suitable ones available (Well, not according to Wenger anyway!) But this summer there looks to be LOTS available, and the one that looks perfect to [.
First of all Arsenal fans, I do not really see the problem with our Poland international keeper Wojciech Szczesny smoking a cigarette occasionally, especially if he is on a holiday from his club and country as he is at the minute. Szczesny is a keeper after all so it is not as if he needs [...]
Arsene Wenger and just about every single Arsenal player has come out and forecast that the Gunners are definitely improving enough to be real challengers for all the major trophies next season, and there is absolutely NO doubt that we will quickly become one of the favourites if Wenger brings in more quality players this [.
Most Arsenal fans are still hoping and believing that one of the signings made by Arsene Wenger is the summer transfer window that is coming up will be a top quality central midfielder to play in the deep lying position. We have been linked with some big names in recent years and over the last [...]
If all the Arsenal transfer rumours are right then it appears that the Chelsea and Czech Republic keeper Petr Cech has made his choice and wants to join Arsenal this summer. Jose Mourinho has made it clear that he does not want this to happen and I am sure that fans of the Blues feel [...]
Arsenal's very own London Terrier Jack Wilshere is very excited about the firepower the Gunners have in our squad, and believes that we have the players that can punish our opponents next season. "We've got players who can hurt teams with Alexis and Ozil, world-class players we've added in the last two seasons," Wilshere said.
Arsene Wenger, along with everyone connected with the mighty Arsenal, was understandably buzzing after watching his players polish off Aston Villa and lift the FA cup trophy for the second year in a row. And he suggested that he would take a little time to relax and enjoy the triumph before assessing our season and [.
In the years when Arsenal were not winning anything except our annual place in the Champions League group stage, Arsenal fans were understandably a bit miffed when Arsene Wenger spoke about the balance of the squad and about building for the future. But it now seems as though the Frenchman´s plans for the foundation of [.
Anyone who had not really been watching the Arsenal games all that closely this season and then watched us blow Aston Villa away in the FA cup final yesterday could have been forgiven for thinking that Arsene Wenger had finally seen sense on the defensive midfield situation and spent some big money in the summer [.
Hello fellow Gooners! What do you think of Tottenham? Just joking, I hope the media don't rape me because I asked you in public. Can you believe how much fuzz is coming out of this Jack Wilshere chant? I mean the smoked cigars were bad but this is pure entertainment. A few Tottenham managers came [..
There are six weeks to go before Arsenal play there first pre-season game in Singapore, but there are a few other tournaments this summer to give us our regular fix of Arsenal players in action, and to take our minds of the interminable transfer rumours! Obviously Sanchez playing in the Copa America is the big [.
The young Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom was promoted to the first team subs bench this year and I have really liked his hunger and positional sense when he has been given a chance on the pitch, and Arsene Wenger obviously sees great promise in the 19 year-old striker. Although he hasn't yet scored for the [.
While all of us Arsenal fans will spend a happy summer with another trophy in the bag, I am sure that most of us will be keeping a sharp eye out for what Arsene Wenger does in the transfer market. It does sound like the boss will not be trying to bring in too many [...]
The last time that the Arsenal hierarchy sat down with Theo Walcott and his representatives about the England international signing a new contract to stay with the club, or not, it seemed to take forever. Arsene Wenger has alluded to that in the run up to the next round of negotiations but I cannot really [.
Although some Arsenal fans are still not convinced by our France international centre forward Olivier Giroud, and may have been hoping that the manager´s decision to start Theo Walcott ahead of him in the FA cup final was a sign that he would be replaced this summer, I still think that Arsene Wenger has a [.
Paul Scholes has never been backwards in coming forwards and saying what he thinks and when that something has been about Arsenal, it has usually been on the negative side of the spectrum. He has had a go at Wenger, Wilshere, Ozil and the general lack of characters at the club and that has just [...]
The playing season is over for all Englishclub teams now,and while some of us will settle for watching the Champions League final, the European Under-21 Championshipandthe Copa America, the vast majority of Arsenal fans will favourthewill-they wont-theyspeculation of the summer window to talk about.
Arturo Vidal has been the subject of many Arsenal transfer rumours in the last few weeks, and the signs are increasingly obvious that he will be leaving Juventus in the near future. Vidal along with his midfield partner Paul Pogba have been brilliant for the Old Lady as the Italian giants have won yet another [.
What DO Arsenal need to improve? by Sam P Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players were all in a confident and optimistic mood after winning the FA cup in back to back Wembley finals and in some style as well. Let us all hope that we can somehow keep hold of this mood for when [...]
Arsenal fans have definitely seen the best and worst of Aaron Ramsey over the years, but Arsene Wenger has always supported the young Welshman during his times of trouble, and even kept faith when the young Ramsey was going through an appalling run of form. Now it seems that the Spanish giants Barcelona have set [.
Until Arsene Wenger gets into 'transfer mode' with Arsenal, although I suspect that the Frenchman and his transfer team have been working on their summer targets already, we do not know for sure which players will be joining the Arsenal squad this summer or even which positions that the Frenchman is planning to strengthen.
I wonder if the Arsenal and England international star was given a bit of a dressing down his representatives at the weekend, because what he said about his future at Arsenal and the contract situation did change in the space of a day. Straight after the delight of helping Arsenal win the FA cup with [.
Every year Arsenal fans take great pleasure in St Totteringham's Day nd this year has been no different. We also all know the famous chants that Jack Wilshere used in the FA Cup Parade from the top of the Open-Top Bus and most of them have been sung by ourselves when we are out with [...]
Arsene Wenger's record in the FA cup is remarkable by KM Well, as Arsenal secured their record-breaking 12th FA cup I have to admit that Arsene Wenger's record in this specific tournament is fantastic. He has led arsenal to half of those cups and when you consider the fact he's only lost 1 of 7 [...]
All Arsenal fans everywhere probably breathed a big sigh of relief as Arsenal cruised to a 4-0 victory in the FA Cup Final on Saturday, and there was no sign of any nerves at all from the players, but Arsene Wenger admitted to a few nerves himself and that a defeat would have been a [...]
They say that there is no smoke without fire, but with the number of Arsenal transfer rumours linking the club with a massive number of players in varying positions during every transfer window, the Emirates would have burned down years ago if that was true. Arsene Wenger certainly does his best to keep us all [.
Arsene Wenger seems to be enjoying the accolades after winning the FA Cup again, but it seems the press is much more interested in the latest Arsenal transfer rumours than talking about the Aston Villa demolition. The Gunners have bought Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in the last couple of summers, and many Arsenal fans [.
The Man City midfielder (well he can play anywhere!) James Milner is out of contract at the Etihad from today, and it has now been confirmed by Sky Sports that the England international has been in talks with both Arsenal and Liverpool. Milner is definitely talented and his bulldog spirit is well-known, but I am [.
The one Arsenal transfer rumour just about every Arsenal fan would want to happen is the arrival of Chelsea's Petr Cech, but that would mean the departure of our current Number One David Ospina, or his backup Wojciech Szczesny. Obviously Ospina has been fantastic since breaking into the team in the New Year, and he [.
The Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta was up on the podium at Wembley collecting the FA Cup on Saturday, despite not playing in the game, but Arsene Wenger has since revealed that he fully expects the Spaniard to sign a new contract extension with the club to stay at the Emirates for another year. Due to [.
