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..
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 [...]
Why Petr Cech signing may be Arsenal's first step towards the title - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
When criticising Arsene Wenger's transfer policies over the past decade, one really does not know where to start. Even though Arsenal were debt-ridden up until recently owing to the building of the Emirates Stadium, the manager's extreme parsimony at times, coupled with his decisions to let his star players go, have left a large portion of the fans frustrated.

Gonzalo Higuain eager for Liverpool move; will Reds sign him? - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain is very interested in a move to the Premier League, according to a report by Italy's Sports Mediaset (scroll down to 10:38 AM) today. The Napoli man has been targeted by nearly every top English club including Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal, but according to the story, it is a move to Anfield that excites him the most.
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 [.
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 [.
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 [...]
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 [.
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 [...]
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 [.
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 [.
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 [.
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 [.
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.
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 [.
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.
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.
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 [.
