The curious case of Petr Cech as an Arsenal player 1

Posted on March 18, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Many fans know Petr Cech courtesy of his time at Stamford Bridge, which makes sense, given that the 35-year-old found record-breaking success with Chelsea Football Club. Nowadays, however, he’s plying his trade across London at the Emirates – and it’s safe to say that things haven’t gone quite as well.

Obviously, father time catches up to all of us sooner rather than later, although, in years gone by, goalkeepers have had the luxury of long playing careers courtesy of their limited movement on a game to game basis. While it may not feel like it, the man who led the Czech Republic forward for the majority of his career has actually played for the Gunners since 2015.

Is the Arsenal job tougher than following Alex Ferguson? 1

Posted on March 18, 2018 by Harry Kettle

It’s no secret that Arsene Wenger’s time at the Emirates is coming to an end after more than two decades in charge of the North London club, and while supporters will always be grateful to him for the memories associated with his reign, most will agree that it’s time to move on to pastures new.

Their results have been deteriorating for a few years now, and despite the recent FA Cup successes, the Gunners haven’t been seen as a legitimate threat in either the Premier League or the Champions League for a long time. Because of that, the cries of ‘Wenger Out’ have grown stronger and stronger with each passing day, and it’s almost time for the trigger to be pulled on this.

Are Arsenal interested in Oblak? 0

Posted on March 18, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

The Express have quoted a report from Spanish newspapers AS that Arsenal are interested in bringing Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak to the Emirates this summer.

Petr Cech has often been criticized this season for some mistakes unusual for a ‘keeper of such class and experience, and the report suggests the Gunners are looking to solve the problem by bringing in the £88 million-rated Slovenian international.

Despite the criticism, Cech recently kept his 200th Premier League clean sheet – the first goalkeeper in the Premier League to do so, while David Ospina has put in a decent performance every time he was given a chance.

Luis Enrique 16/1 to be the next Arsenal boss 0

Posted on March 18, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Star, former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique is stalling on agreeing on a deal to become Chelsea boss because he would prefer a move to north London with Arsenal.

Speculation has continued over the future of Arsenal’s veteran boss Arsene Wenger. However, with the Gunners now in the last eight of the Europa League, it remains to be seen if the veteran Frenchman will leave the north London giants this summer.

Enrique an outsider for the job

According to the same report, Enrique has been discussed as a possible replacement for Wenger, if of course, the veteran boss does leave.

Surely Arsenal are not really making a move for Dembele? 0

Posted on March 17, 2018 by David Nugent

According to London Football, Arsenal maybe monitoring Dembele, no not the Belgian midfielder who ambles around so effortlessly at Tottenham, but Barcelona’s young forward Ousmane Dembele.

The 20-year-old is regarded as one of the most exciting young players in the world game. He only moved to the Catalan giants last summer a deal worth over £90million.

Struggled for game time due to injuries

Unfortunately, for the youngster, he has struggled to make an impact at Barcelona due to injuries. His recent goal against Chelsea in the Champions League was the forward’s first for the Catalan club.

The pros and cons of Arsenal Fan TV 0

Posted on March 17, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal Fan TV has been a revelation of sorts over the last few years, as fans of the North London club have been given the chance to voice their opinions in the form of a YouTube interview. Given that Arsene Wenger’s men haven’t been so successful as of late, it’s not hard to imagine why it’s been such a popular form of entertainment for opposition fans.

It seems as if business couldn’t be better for the channel, and as we move into the latter stages of the season, we thought it’d be interesting to weigh up the pros and the cons of the service.

Will Giroud departure prove to be Arsene Wenger’s biggest mistake? 0

Posted on March 17, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Olivier Giroud is no longer an Arsenal player, and that’s been the case for a few months now. While most supporters had time to come to terms with that disastrous revelation, a lot of us are still hoping this is some kind of sick nightmare which we’re going to wake up from imminently.

As it stands, however, the Frenchman is still a member of Chelsea Football Club, and our hearts are still broken. Now while that sentence alone is likely enough to make you either vomit or want to dig your head in the sand, bear with us as we explain our reasons behind missing Olivier so much.

Should Jack Wilshere stay at Arsenal or leave? 0

Posted on March 17, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Jack Wilshere is one of the most polarising players in world football, and that isn’t a ‘shocking’ statement to make. The Englishman has had an extremely inconsistent career over the years as a member of Arsenal Football Club, and now, the question of whether or not he’ll remain at the Emirates continues to plague the Gunners’ season.

We’ve experienced this kind of thing over the last twelve months with Alexis Sanchez, and it seems as if history is doomed to repeat itself. Of course, the two men are incredibly different both on and off the pitch, but there are certainly similarities in the way the media are portraying this whole thing.

Wenger vs. Mourinho – from the touchline to the ring 0

Posted on March 17, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Picture the scenario. We’re at WrestleMania in front of 80,000 screaming fans, mainly made up of middle-aged men, all awaiting the grudge match main event between two goliaths of the sport. Wenger always falls short against the mighty José, despite the Frenchman constantly reinventing himself in an attempt to best his rival. It’s like a rubbish Stone Cold vs The Rock, basically.

Ladies and gentleman, this contest is a ‘No Disqualification’ match set for one fall. Introducing first from Strasbourg, France, weighing in at about the equivalent of 1,000 cocktail sticks, ARSENE WENGER. His opponent, from Setúbal, Portugal, the most miserable man on planet earth, JOSÉ MOURINHO.

Southampton date changed again as Arsenal warns fans about Moscow 0

Posted on March 16, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal’s home game against the relegation-threatened Southampton this season was initially scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 7th, but it was later moved to Monday evening in order to enable live coverage by Sky television.

Now, due to Arsenal playing a Europa League game against CSKA in Moscow the following Thursday, it has been rescheduled again. It will be played on Sunday, April 8th, kicking off at 2:15 PM.

Having previously sacked Mauricio Pellegrino, the Saints have appointed Mark Hughes as their new manager. How much sense exactly it makes to sack a manager for being involved in a relegation battle only to hire a manager that has already been sacked elsewhere for the same reason (Stoke City) remains to be seen.
