Although Arsenal did not have a very busy transfer deadline day yesterday, the Gunners did manage to do most of their business early in the window. In the end, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger strengthened his team compared to last year's squad, spending over $130 million on five first team players and three young academy players (including highly-rated 16-year-old midfielder Ben Sheaf from West Ham).
You would have to think that Yaya Sanogo is a lot better in front of goal when he is training with the Arsenal squad, otherwise he would never get a game with the first team. But it is also clear that the lanky young Frenchman lacks confidence in front of goal during a competitive game. [...]
My opinion ? The problem is Wenger. by Tom Friend Too long at Arsenal: I find it alarming that Wenger's ego is tolerated for so many years. Wenger has all character trades of a man who believes he doesn't need any advice and the results are bad... really bad... While teams like Liverpool and Everton [.
With Arsenal failing or turning down the chance to sign a new centre forward to cover for the injured France international Olivier Giroud, you would have to assume that Arsene Wenger thinks he has got enough options in the Arsenal squad already to cope until Christmas. And with his reluctance to use either Walcott or [.
Well Arsenal fans, how much did we enjoy that transfer deadline day? About as much as the first visit to meet your girlfriends parents or maybe the last time you went to A and E and had to sit all night to see a stressed out nurse to have splinters of glass picked out of [...]
Danny Welbeck has agreed to join Arsenal in a £16m deal, after a topsy-turvy deadline day during which his transfer to the Emirates remained in the balance until the very end.
Welbeck had attracted interest from Sunderland, Hull and Tottenham, with Spurs looking favourite to clinch a loan deal for the United striker, before Arsenal entered the race on Monday afternoon, as Arsene Wenger looked to bolster his options up-front following an injury that will keep Olivier Giroud out until December.
Arsene Wenger is still holding Arsenal Football Club back and he must go! by Adam Kemp Arsene Wenger has all but proved that he is a complete lunatic when it comes to his ability to build a successful footballing team. I am appalled and disgusted at the conduct of this feeble excuse for a football [.
It all seems so long ago that Arsenal signed Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona, beating Liverpool into the bargain. We Arsenal fans were really happy and could hold our heads up and even take the mickey out of our Premier League rivals. Well that did not last very long did it? In fact, that early flush [.
Short term thinking is a way of life for many except, perhaps, for Arsenal's Arsene Wenger. The now matters and the future can take care of itself. It is something I have often moaned about on these pages and the classic example, for me at least, is Arema back in 2009/2010.
They had a good coach in Robert Alberts and they had a good team including Singaporean imports Noh Alam Shah and M Ridwan and promising goalie Kurina Meiga coming through.
At last it looks like Arsenal fans might have something to get excited about on this final day of the summer transfer window. As long as you consider the signing of the England international striker Danny Welbeck exciting that is. Sky Sports are reporting that the 23-year old is currently having a medical ahead of [.
Arsenal were supposed to be `very active` on transfer deadline day today, but the silence from the Emirates is deafening and us fans are starting to worry that the deadline will come without Arsene Wenger adding a single extra player to the Arsenal squad. In fact, Wenger seems to have knocked off for the day [.
Arsenal Could Be Set For Late Transfer Talks With Portuguese Giants - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
This season's transfer deadline day is a very important day for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal. Having lost Olivier Giroud until the New Year through injury, it is absolutely imperative for the Gunners to bring in reinforcements up front to have a real chance of challenging for silverware.
There is finally some action for Arsenal as the summer transfer window starts collecting glasses and shouting drink up please, it's time. But this transfer action is not really what we want to see, as it sees a player leaving Arsenal rather than one coming in. The report in the Daily Mail reveals that the [.
It seems as though the reports in the last few days about the Serie A club Roma beating Arsenal to the signature of the central midfielder Adrien Rabiot may have been a bit premature. The Gunners had previously been said to be the favourites to seal the deal with PSG for their talented youngster and [.
If you ask most Arsenal fans whether the club could do with a defensive midfielder, be ready for a verbal hairdryer, because we have needed one for at least the last three years, But once again during the summer transfer window, the Gunners have been linked with every central midfielder out there but once again [.
So Arsene Wenger does not think that Arsenal need the striking services of Radamerl Falcao then, it seems. The Frenchman must have seen something in the 17 goal free Premier League appearances of Yaya Sanogo that the rest of us are missing. Because the news all over the media at the moment, including Metro, is [.
I know that Arsene Wenger has mentioned Joel Campbell many times recently as part of his striking options for Arsenal. Not only that, but the Frenchman said straight out the other day that he was not going to let the young Costa Rica international go anywhere, as reported by the Daily Mail. The Frenchman said, [.
There are a few things in football that are certainties. I don't mean the kind in which a particular team is certain to win the league; this often turns out to be wrong. Neither do I mean the kind in which the club with the largest wage bill like Manchester City fields a team that is certain to beat a lesser light such as Stoke City.
After Arsenal's second disappointing away draw from their first three League games, Arsene Wenger is at pains to tell the fans to trust him, whether he finds the "right player" in thetransfer market today or not. And the Frenchman certainly doesn't want to promise any new arrivals just yet. "As long as the transfer market [.
Arsenal Con by DS This time last year Arsenal signed Mesut Ozil. I asked the question "was this a sign of the club's new found ambition" or merely a crowd pleasing signing, a realisation that Gooners were no longer listening to Arsene Wenger's excuses, and were ready to vote with their feet? Of course once [.
Would Arsenal have been better off if Wenger had quit in 2006? by Paul Undoubtedly a new era had besmirched Arsenal come 2006 as the curtain finally came down on Highbury. However was this change of ground the only necessary change needed for the Arsenal? The club and more importantly the fans now had a [.
Arsenal have reportedly pulled out of talks with Loic Remy over a possible move to The Emirates, leaving Chelsea FC in pole position to sign the highly rated frenchman, according the Sky Sports sources. Arsenal had been linked with the signature of the QPR hitman all summer, but Arsene Wenger declared earlier this month that [.
Leicester City were extremely strong in last season's Championship and have performed admirably in their first two Premiership games against Everton and Chelsea, so they are still full of confidence and believe they can take all three points against Arsenal this afternoon. Leicester's French midfielder Anthony Knockaert gave a rallying call to his team-mates when [.
As Arsenal fans, we have all become used to seeing Arsene Wenger play some of the Arsenal players in unfamiliar positions. Now I realise that the Frenchman knows a lot more about football than me and he has had some amazing success, especially in turning Thierry Henry and the traitor RvP into central strikers, but [.
When Mikel Arteta picked up an ankle injury in Arsenal's away game at Besiktas, there were fears he might miss quite a few games. And I started to worry about the Arsenal injury crisis of last season coming back to plague us again, with Kieran Gibbs having picked up a knock in the previous game. [...
Actually, the figure mentioned in the Arsenal transfer rumour about the latest bid put in by Arsene Wenger for the defensive midfield transfer target William Carvalho is given as £21.3 million by Metro. But this is such an odd figure that it must equate to an amount in the currency of his current employers, Sporting [.
If he is fit, and his inclusion in the Arsenal squad for the Champions League second leg against Besiktas suggests that he is, I think our young French striker Yaya Sanogo should start as the Arsenal centre forward for the away game against Leicester City tomorrow. The way Sanchez plays up front is more suited [.
If the Arsenal transfer rumours of this week are to be trusted, the Gunners were beaten to one of our main defensive transfer targets by the Italian Serie A club Roma. The player in question was the Greece international centre back Kostas Manolas and then we were linked with his international colleague Sokratis.
After yonks under Nike's tyrannical ill-fastened reign, Arsenal switched to having Puma provide all of their kit gubbins for the start of the 2014/15 season and, sadly for fans of watching extraordinarily learned gentlemen struggle with incredibly basic mechanisms, it seems like they may have sought to makeinfamous Arsene Wenger's zip woes a thing of the past.
Look Arsenal fans, before you start slating me for being anti-Wilshere, I am actually one of the writers on here that have been supportive of the young midfielder over the last year. And I have been really pleased to see the real Jack Wilshere start to appear on the pitch again recently. I still think [.
A lot of the big clubs these days use the loan system quite a lot to help them, and Arsenal are no different. With all the academy players trying to make it into the first team as well as a big squad to start with, sometimes the only way for a player to get some [...]
If the number of Arsenal transfer rumours currently doing the rounds about the young Central midfielder Adrien Rabiot are anything to go by, there is certainly real interest from Arsene Wenger, despite the Frenchman refusing point blank to discuss him at the pre-match press conference. Over the last few days, we have heard that Rabiot's [.
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: [.
Sometimes it's very difficult to figure out Arsene Wenger. While I fully accept he knows his players better than I do and has more information which has an impact on his team selection, I thought yesterday's line-up was a bit odd.
Having spoken about how Alexis can play as a central striker 'for his whole life', he selected Yaya Sanogo instead, choosing to deploy the Chilean in a kind of fluid trio behind the young Frenchman.
Starting with Arsene Wenger coming to the defence of Mesut Ozil. Now, you might ask why he's had to come to the defence of a player who only arrived back at the club a couple of weeks ago and has got two games under his belt already but that's the kind of world we live in now.
