I may be reading too much into this, after the names of the Arsenal squad who have gone on the mini pre-season tour of America was released on the official website of New York Red Bulls, the MLS team with the former Gunners star Thierry Henry that Arsenal will be facing on Saturday. The 20-man [...]
Arsene Wenger has to follow up the FA Cup victory with more silverware this season by SE A lot has gone on, after that crushing defeat to Aston Villa on the opening day last season, for Wenger and the Arsenal faithful. From receiving criticism for his inactivity in the transfer market last English summer to [.
It really does seem like Arsene Wenger has got something against the traditional role of defensive midfielder, after the Arsenal boss apparently decided against signing a player in that mould yet again, as reported by the Daily Mail. The paper claims that, despite being linked with the likes of Sami Khedira, Morgan Schneiderlin and Lars [.
The past few weeks have been partly about celebration. Celebrating the gold winning exploits in the World Cup of our three proud German Gooners, and who knows, by the end of the transfer window this may yet turn out to be four German Gooners. Hush, hush!
Along the way, the Germans overcame the French team that included three Gooners, one of whom has since left Arsenal to be promptly replaced by another one at the same position.
Arsenal Football Club has announced its squad for this Saturday's friendly against New York Red Bulls in the 2014 New York Cup.
Arsenal footballers, manager Arsene Wenger and staff departed England earlier today on their way to New York City. Meanwhile, Arsenal supporters from across North American and England will be making their way to Harrison, New Jersey for Saturday's match, which kicks off at 5pm ET (and will be shown live on ESPN2).
Now I know we don't do politics, religion and all those things that make the world go round, but I felt I had to put a few words together to discuss the following. Many supporters have been asking for one of our major share holders to use his billions to buy Arsenal FC outright and spend some of that vast wealth on players.
I am sure that most, if not all, Arsenal fans and the manager as well, would prefer the Real Madrid and France striker Karim Benzema to either of the players mentioned in the title, and there are rumours that Arsenal may be back in with a chance, but for the purposes of argument, I am [...]
It appears as though the media do not believe Arsene Wenger, how strange! After the Frenchman made it plain as day that Arsenal were not in the transfer market for any more strikers, there seem to have been more Arsenal transfer rumours concerning forwards than ever before. Do they think the Prof is doing the [.
Arsene Wenger looks set to agree the £3million purchase of Nice and Colombian goalkeeper David Ospina, according to multiple sources. The deal has been reported on for a lengthy period of time and now it appears that the Gunners will be officially announcing the goalkeeper in the near future.
Ospina, 25, played in all of Colombia's World Cup games in an impressive run for the South Americans, before being eliminated by Brazil in the quarter finals.
By 1970's Gooner We all got very excited with the arrival of Sanchez and Debuchy. Wenger means business, he is addressing Arsenal's deficiencies with high quality purchases we thought. Next will be a goalkeeper and a central defender as it is imperative that these huge gaps be filled. And I expect that this will be addressed soon enough (the Aspina deal will probably be announced when
I got a lot of stick from some Arsenal fans after writing an article last year about the Barcelona and Argentina star Lionel Messi possibly coming to play for Arsenal. Now I am not saying that I was right, because I wrote the story as an April Fool's Day piece, but amazingly, The Express are [...]
After our win at Borehamwood Wenger stated that he would not be adding to the forward line. He said "Up front we don't need any more. It's not especially for numbers. We need a goalkeeper for sure and after that it depends on how our midfielders get through without injuries until the start of the season.
At least Arsenal fans are not going to have to wait until the last few days of the transfer window, nervously checking the sports websites dozens of times a day and wondering what the hell Arsene Wenger is playing at. Having already done some good business in the transfer market has made us all a [..
Arsenal withdraw from World Cup winner transfer race - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Arsene Wenger has pulled the plug on his interests in securing the signature of Germany midfielder, Sami Khedira. The London side are still looking to strengthen their side ahead of the impending Premier League season but have failed to agree terms with the 27-year-old.
We're good. City and Utd are sorted. So what's going on with Chavs, Spuds and Pool. Surely they're overdue upgrades. Anyone know what's going on, and while we're on the subject, any thoughts on improving our gaff?
Oh, and are The ‘ammers seriously moving into the Olympic Stadium, and exactly how far from the pitch will they be squatting in their cages?
It is not just Arsenal who will struggle with their pre-season preparations, of course, because all of our Premier League rivals have had some of their players involved in the World Cup finals this summer, but not many will be having it any worse than the Gunners. As revealed by an Arsenal.com report, Arsene Wenger [.
By 1970's Gooner Sami Khedira's move to Arsenal had looked really on when Wenger put in a bid which was accepted by Real Madrid. The only matter that remained was the player's personal demands. But thesalary requested would have broken Arsenal's wage structure. We were all very excited of course. Some compromise would be found we thought.
I must admit to being a bit baffled as to why Arsenal just stepped aside and allowed Liverpool to lead the race of Loic Remy. There was talk of his £80,000 a week wages being a problem for Arsene Wenger, but that is not a lot for a Premier League class striker these days. The [...]
Nothing has been confirmed yet, by either Arsenal or Man United, but it appears as though the transfer of the Gunners captain to our Premier League rivals could be back on. Thomas Vermaelen was pictured this week on holiday with former Arsenal captain and turncoat Robin van Persie, and the two could soon be seeing [.
With Arsenal about to get another campaign underway, with the first pre-season friendly at Boreham Wood today, our Player of the Year from last season, Aaron Ramsey, is buzzing with confidence and feeling very positive about the next nine months. The young Welsh star reckons that winning the FA cup in May has given all [.
There is a good chance that Arsene Wenger could end up kicking himself over this one, as Arsenal are set to see one of our long term transfer targets, Loic Remy, sign a long term contract with Premier League rivals Liverpool, according to a report in Metro. It appears as though their manager Brendan Rodgers [.
Reasons the FA cup win was so important 9 long years Arsenal fans had went through without silverware of any sort. 9 long years Arsenal fans had suffered both heartbreak and mockery from the footballing world. Finally, it has ended with the FA cup victory last season. Here are 4 reasons why did that trophy [.
Last summer definitely saw Liverpool get one over on Arsenal, with Arsene Wenger making the infamous bid for Luis Suarez of one pound over £40 million. That may or may not have triggered a release clause in the cannibalistic Uruguayan striker's contract, but they stood firm and used the opportunity to take the mickey and [.
It was being reported a few days ago that Arsenal had agreed terms with the French Ligue 1 club Nice for the transfer of their keeper David Ospina. With a transfer fee of around £3-4 million, it looked like Arsene wenger had done it again, with the Colombian international keeper showing some fantastic ability in [.
If the latest Arsenal transfer rumours are true, then we should soon see whether Arsene Wenger is really serious about bringing Loic Remy to the club or not. The transfer move for the France international striker has been on since the end of last season, with his parent club QPR making no secret of the [.
The fact that Arsenal have been looking to sign a new right back will come as no surprise to the England international defender Carl Jenkinson. The decision of Bacary Sagna to leave us for Man City was always going to leave a gap in the squad, which the completion of the Mathieu Debuchy transfer from [.
With Bacary Sagna already departed and Carl Jenkinson not yet considered by Arsene Wenger to be ready for regular first team football, the Gunners needed a right-back. And in £12million new-signing, Mathieu Debuchy, they have a Premier League-ready, experienced and consistent player who should slot into the Arsenal backline quite nicely.
Good morning from a misty East Lothian. It was like this yesterday but turned into gorgeous sunshine by 10am, so I'm sure it's just a haar what with me being not far from the coast.Anyway, you didn't come here for a weather report, did you? If you did, well, that was fortuitous for you(assuming you're in East Lothian) but that's your lot.
Morning, and welcome to a brand new week of pre-season.
It's fairly quiet but there's an interesting quote from Arsene Wenger which, although it appears in the rather unreliable Express, is apparently accurate. My podcasting colleague Gunnerblog was at the press conference on Saturday and part of what was said was embargoed and only emerged overnight.
The recruitment continues apace, with Debuchy coming in as our first-choice right-back. In the website photoshoot he's got his arms on his hips (psychologists will tell you he's ready and in control that's a good sign for us. He may also be showing off his armful of tats, two of which seem to be dates in Roman numerals.
