Arsene Wenger seems to love the attention from the end of the summer transfer window, and seems to love building up the tension as deadline day approaches. This season promises to be no different as he has been talking about the loss of Olivier Giroud from Arsenal's first team for over three months. First of [.
Possible Arsenal Starting Line-Up Against Leicester City - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
After scraping into the group stages of the Champions League in midweek, Arsenal look to get back to winning ways in the Premier League. The Gunners travel to the King Power Stadium on Sunday to take on Leicester City, who are looking for their first win of the season following promotion from the Championship last year.
There have been many Arsenal transfer rumours linking the Gunners with a move for the wantaway Monaco striker Radamel Falcao, but there have been a couple of strange twists in the last 24 hours. First of all, it seemed that Arsene Wenger had ruled out buying another striker when it was reported in the Express: [.
With Olivier Giroud's surgery knocking him out of action until January, the buzz around Arsenal is that the team now needs to buy a new striker if they want to compete for a title. This has led to all kinds of rumors about who Arsenal is targeting and the obscene amounts of money it will cost to acquire a player.
I have been trying to think of a Plato pun but will have to settle for the one in the title. Anyway, Gooners, the Arsenal transfer rumour linking us with the Greece international defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos could soon turn out to hit a snag, after the Gunners were drawn against his current club in the [.
There was a new twist to the Arsenal transfer rumour linking us with a move for the 22-year old Portugal international William Carvalho earlier this week. It said that the defensive midfielder was waiting to see whether the Gunners would make it through to the group stage of the Champions League before deciding whether to [.
You have probably heard the Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that the Monaco and Colombia international striker Radamel Falcao could be available on a season long loan deal to replace our injured centre forward Olivier Giroud. But the fact that the rumours say that it will cost the Gunners around £20 million, along with the statement [.
Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Arsenal will have to do without Olivier Giroud leading the line for around four months after the Frenchman fractured his left tibia at the end of the Everton game, but at least the timing of the injury gives the boss a few days to bring in a replacement. But while [..
Well as I suggested earlier in the day this was going to be a squeaky bum time 90 minutes, and so it turned out to be.
There will be countless opinions about the referee but on the whole even with his bizarre booking of Chambers and to an extent Szczesny we got lucky on at least one penalty call when Wilshere was a cigarette paper away from conceding, which he admitted could have been given.
Arsene Wenger and his men were all smiles after they survived a scare against Turkish giants Besiktas in the second leg of their Champions League qualifying match. Marquee summer signing Alexis Sanchez netted his first goal goal for the club, which earned his new employers a narrow 1-0 victory that saw them edge through the two-legged tie.
With Arsenal's star center forward, Olivier Giroud, rumored to be out for three to four months with a broken bone in his foot, manager Arsene Wenger will soon have to decide on whether or not to buy an additional striker before the deadline day comes to an end on Monday night. Giroud was injured at the latter stages of Arsenal's 2-2 draw at Everton at the weekend when a ball struck his foot just as it was landing on the ground.
Now I am totally confused. Arsene Wenger has made it clear that he is not going to buy a new striker to cover for Olivier Giroud, but now it seems he is in the process of bringing Nikola Zigic to Arsenal. The Serb's agent told the Metro: ‘Wenger called me on Tuesday and stressed his [...]
There are many Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that Arsenal will be looking to buy another striker in the wake of the injury to Olivier Giroud, but Arsene Wenger has made it clear that he already has enough strikers on his books to cover the loss of our centre-forward. The Frenchman said in the Mirror: "In [.
The Arsenal Chap Diaries Is now the time for Podolski? There had been indecision about where to play Lukas Podolski, indecision about his application and now indecision on whether he will stay at the Emirates Stadium. This has been the story for the World Cup winning German so far. That is until today, when [.
After Arsenal drew 2-2 with Everton, it was interesting that Arsene Wenger praised the team's belief and resilience. He did the same thing after Arsenal beat Crystal Palace 2-1. Not in the sense that it was unexpected but praising Arsenal's mental resolve has now become the manager's stock response, whereas once he would cite possession statistics or shot output as a sign of Arsenal's dominance.
I know that being an Arsenal fan can be a little frustrating at times, especially during a transfer window. But I do have some sympathy and agreement with the way Arsene Wenger has acted in recent years. His refusal to pay hugely over-inflated transfer fees has seen us miss out on some players but was [.
Arsenal Transfer Window: Three realistic striker options for the Gunners - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Arsene Wenger andArsenalare in dire need of a new striker, and the Gunners faithful will be looking to the end of this summer transfer window as the perfect opportunity for the club to add one star striker that could help the team to replace Olivier Giroud.
Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud could be out for three months - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Arsene Wenger will face a race against time to sign a new striker before the transfer window comes to an end next Monday. Arsenal's striker Olivier Giroud sustained an ankle injury in the dying seconds at Everton after scoring the Gunner's 2-2 dramatic equaliser.
Some things never seem to change for Arsenal. The Gunners were already struggling a little with a mounting injury list after Kieran Gibbs and Mikel Arteta joined the likes of Theo Walcott and Serge Gnabry in the treatment room. And those two injuries were picked up in the first two competitive games of the season.
Arsenal's English Premier League and UEFA Champions League title hopes have taken a huge hit as of Tuesday morning.
According to reports in France, Arsenal are set to be without frontman Olivier Giroud for approximately three months after the French international suffered a broken foot in Arsenal's 2-2 draw with Everton.
How fitness can affect football games by KJ I noticed something on Saturday that was rather surprising (and I'm not talking about our defending). It was Everton's fitness levels. They were struggling massively after the 80th minute and the only real reason we scored was because they had entirely switched off at that point.
Less than a week until the transfer window shuts, and still speculation into who else will join the four new players we have signed. So far we have Sanchez who in the couple of games we have seen him, looks to be a fine live wire. Up next we have Debuchy a right back replacement for our beloved Bacary Sagna.
Assuming that Arsene Wenger was actually trying to make Sami Khedira an Arsenal player this summer, this weekend will not have been a good one for the Frenchman's transfer plans. Real Madrid have dug their heels in and insisted that their German midfielder will not be going anywhere, leaving the Gunners in a bit of [.
By 1970s Gooner News just out of Athens media are reporting that Arsenal have failed to land Kostas Manolas. Instead it is Roma that he has signed for today. It appears that they have paid 15m euros which is about 3m more than what stingy Arsenal and Wenger were prepared to dish out. I now doubt if we are going to buy any more players.
Arsenal: Three positives from the draw against Everton by SE For a very brief period on Saturday, Arsenal were keeping their skeptics happy. But, when Kevin Friend blew his final whistle, Wenger's men would have felt content and encouraged by the attitude they showed, to leave Goodison Park with a well-earned point.
I have just been reading that the Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski is on the verge of leaving the club and going to play in Italy for the Serie A champions Juventus and I am not happy. With at least two years left on his contract, we are not under pressure to sell him and although [...]
With just over a week to go before the summer transfer window shuts and all the Premier League clubs are stuck with what they have until January, Arsenal fans are hoping for at least two more players to come to the Emirates before Monday night. One of those should be a defensively minded central midfielder, [.
According to some recent Arsenal transfer rumours, the World Cup winning German forward Lukas Podolski is set to leave the club before the summer transfer window closes next Monday. Meanwhile other reports are linking the Gunners with a possible transfer swoop for the Manchester United and England international Danny Welbeck, who plays in that same [.
When Olivier Giroud charged down Sylvain Distin's clearance on Saturday evening and collapsed to the ground in a crumpled heap adjacent to the away end, I barely flickered in recognition. Partly because I'd yet to psychically realign with planet earth after the Frenchman's equaliser. But also because it's easy to be blasé about the sight of Olivier Giroud's anguished features and flicky hands.
Danny Cruz and Andrew Wenger have held down the left side of the attack under Jim Curtin. Who has been performing better, and what will happen when Maidana returns?
Ever since Jim Curtin took over the reins nine MLS matches ago, Danny Cruz and Andrew Wenger have been the interchangeable pieces on the left hand side of the Philadelphia Union's attacking midfield trio in the 4-2-3-1 formation.
