A case of two Lucas By SK When Arsene Wenger announced the purchase of Lukas Poldoski in the summer of 2012, Arsenal fans were well convinced that Arsenal had finally got a striker who will take them to the Eldorado of football. Coming to Arsenal after a successful spell with FC Koln of Germany, they [.
The last Arsenal player to wear the number nine shirt that has now been handed to our new striker signing was the Germany international Lukas Podolski. Even though there is some debate about whether he was given a fair crack of the whip by Arsene Wenger, it is fair to say that his Arsenal career [...
The German ex-Arsenal winger/striker Lukas Podolski and the France hitman Karim Benzema are both very annoyed with the furore in their home countries surrounding the player selections for the Euros. The 30 year-old Podolski has been criticised in Germany for being selected when everyone really knows that Joachim Low is unlikely to play him during [.
Arsenal vs Europe by Seetsuma Summer. The Women's World Cup is over, the Copa America is over, and the only matches to watch right now are the Gold Cup, Wimbledon, Baseball, NBA Summer League basketball and reruns of Game of Thrones. Now that it is July 11th and the EPL transfer market has officially been [.
Arsenal messed up with Podolski by DN You will not find too many Arsenal fans out there who have taken the news that the Germany international Lukas Podolski has completed his transfer to the Turkish champions Galatasaray with anything more than a shrug of the shoulders. It is a sad end to the Arsenal career [.
Lukas Podolski is on the brink of making a permanent switch to Galatasaray. Latest reports indicated that the Turkish club is confident of sealing the transfer. If they are successful to do so, it would be after three unsuccessful attempts from the Turkish giants. Galatasaray tried to sign him in 2012 from the German club [.
Lukas Podolski is, according to reports, close to joining the Turkish club Galatasaray. The German international striker had a frustrating last season with both Arsenal and Inter Milan. Podolski lost favour with Arsene Wenger and was unable to get any game time under him for the first half of the season.
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 [...]
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 [.
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 [.
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 [.
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 [.
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 [...]
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.
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 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.
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 [...]
As Chelsea have now been confirmed as Champions and the end of the season approaches, many Arsenal fans are wondering who we need to bring in to strengthen the Gunners squad, so we can make a more sustained challenge for next year's title. Since the New Year Arsenal have been the most in-form side so [.
Arsenal Set To Start Summer Clear-Out With THREE Forwards! by AT It seems as though Arsenal are getting set to clear out a lot of deadwood in the offensive department when the transfer window opens as The Sun is reporting that the Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is planning to offload Lukas Podolski, Joel Campbell and [.
As the end of the season approaches we are getting more and more Arsenal transfer rumours appearing in the press, and today's selection makes for some interesting reading. Most Arsenal fans are expecting Arsene Wenger to bring in a new holding midfielder to compete with Francis Coquelin, and today we are hearing that the Dortmund [.
Arsene Wenger was much critized for not playing Lukas Podolski in the Arsenal First team, despite his excellent goalscoring record for the club, but now the German is struggling to get a game on loan at Inter Milan it would seem like Le Prof was right. Podolski accused Wenger of disrespect when he was sent [.
It is becoming a yearly cliche that "Arsenal are three players away from winning the title" and that could probably easily be said again this summer, although if we hadn't had any injuries this season we may have been a LOT closer to the top. We are still a long way away from the transfer [...]
I may have a little bee in my bonnet here, I know. But I am going to plough on anyway and provide more evidence, in my opinion anyway, that Arsene Wenger is a better manager than Jose Mourinho (or Maureen as we not so affectionately know him). An article in The Independent this week explained [...]
Although Lukas Podolski has played quite a few games at Inter Milan since he was sent out on loan, it seems he has failed to impress Roberto Mancini and is running out of time to persuade the Italian manager to make his move permanent at the end of the season. Now Podolski's agent Ali Pektas [...]
So transfer deadline day has finally arrived, and just for a change we don't have millions of Arsenal fans clamouring for Wenger to 'Spend Some Money' (except for Hafiz again!). Most of us are happy with the arrival of Gabriel, especially with the resurgence of Francis Coquelin as DM. So we are all calm, and [.
I am still in shock that Arsene Wenger has allowed Joel Campbell to leave Arsenal for the Spanish La Liga club Villarreal. If the ESPN report is right, we paid the release clause for Paulista so we did not have to include Campbell in the deal. It is only on loan until the end of [...]
It is not likely to get any easier for the Costa Rica international star Joel Campbell to force his way into the Arsenal first team, with our flying England forward Theo Walcott getting closer to full match fitness and his two international team mates Danny Welbeck and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain giving Arsene Wenger better striking options [.
Arsene Wenger has already sent Lukas Podolski on loan to Inter Milan and is in the process of finding another Premier League club to park Yaya Sanogo at for the rest of the season, but now we have the (very surprising) news that Arsenal have agreed to sell Benik Afobe to an un-named Championship club, [.
Every Arsenal fan has believed that Arsene Wenger has always had a problem with Lukas Podolski because he has never given the German international an extended run in the Gunners first team, despite being our most consistent goalscorer for the last few years. Now that Lukas has gone out on loan, he has only confirmed [.
After his departure to Inter Milan on loan, @RoamingLibero looks back to Lukas Podolski's Arsenal's career and questions if we'll miss him at all.
Following the two hammerings at the hands of Liverpool and Chelsea, the dreadful loss to Everton and the points dropped away at Stoke and at home to Swansea, by mid-April 2014, what had been a strong and pretty convincing title push lay in ruins.
Arsenal need to bring players IN rather than letting more leave! by JN Arsenal fans were obvously perplexed in the summer when Arsene Wenger sold Thomas Vermaelen and then loaned out Francis Coquelin and Carl Jenkinson without bringing in better quality replacements, which was instrumental to our awful results during our defensive injury crisis.
The Arsenal winger Lukas Podolski has only been out on loan at Inter Milan for a few days, but he has already made his debut last night against the Serie A Champions Juventus, and helped his new club to pull back an equaliser in the second half. Podolski's new manager Roberto Mancini admitted that bringing [.
The young Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom may only have played for around 10 minutes at the end of the defeat to Southampton the other day, and it having been his first Premier League action of the season, but Arsenal fans could soon be seeing Akpom on a more regular basis. There are plenty of attacking [.
The German international Lukas Podolski probably didn't take kindly to the statement from his Arsenal manager yesterday when Wenger tried to play down any chance of the 29 year-old leaving the Emirates this month, especially since the Inter manager Roberto Mancini revealed that the Italian Giants were taking an interest.
It was always pretty inevitable that Olivier Giroud's moment of madness against West Ham would come back to bite us in the proverbials, and so it has come to pass. Danny Welbeck looks to be unavailable for Thursday's crucial game away at Southampton as Arsene Wenger revealed yesterday: "We have an uncertainty about Welbeck, who [.
That daft red card that the Arsenal and France international striker picked up for losing his rag and throwing a headbutt in the QPR game is starting to look more and more costly to the Gunners. We did manage a plucky away win at West Ham in the first of the centre forward's three games [...]
There have been quite a few Arsenal transfer rumours recently linking the club with a January transfer move for another striker and there have been some big names on the table as well, such as Edinson Cavani from PSG. But with all the forward options that Arsene Wenger already has in the Gunners squad and [.
By 1970's Gooner Wenger described Inter's original offer for taking Podolski on loan as not serious, a joke. Well he was probably right because as I can reveal their offer which came from their Sporting Director, Piero Ausilio, was to take Podolski without any compensation whatsoever for Arsenal. It is only when they came back with money that the deal was allowed to go through by Wenger
