Posted on April 20, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal Football Club have confirmed they will subsidise tickets for the Europa League semi-final second leg away at Atletico Madrid. By doing this, the club will ensure that Arsenal fans traveling to Madrid do not pay anything more than the £36.50 Atletico fans will be paying to see the first leg at the Emirates. The price set by the Spanish club for the fans coming to support Arsenal is £79.

Mark Brindle, the Arsenal supporters’ liaison officer, said the club are aware the trip to Madrid was always going to be expensive for the fans as the early May Bank Holiday increases travel expenses.

It’s time to take yet another trip down memory lane, and for the second day in a row, we’re going to be focusing on an Arsenal victory over Reading. Of course, the situation is entirely different given this was in the Premier League back in 2008, but there are certain aspects which will make you realise just how little has changed when it comes to Arsenal’s title ambitions.

Arsenal were beaten by 2-1 at St. James’ Park last weekend, and as they prepare to take on West Ham on Sunday at the Emirates, manager Arsene Wenger provided a few updates.

The first point on the agenda was the fitness situation in the team. The manager revealed that goalkeeper David Ospina is back, Henrikh Mkhitaryan isn’t yet, and Jack Wilshere is a doubt due to an ankle issue. Aaron Ramsey is available despite the fact he hasn’t trained fully with the team.

Aubameyang admits not being “100% sure” about Lacazette initially 0

The transfers of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Lyon and Borussia Dortmund, respectively, have both broken through the £50 million barrier.

It may have seemed at first like the arrival of Aubameyang in January would be a blow to Lacazette in terms of game-time, but a couple of facts immediately pointed the other way. Having represented Dortmund in this season’s Champions League, Aubameyang is ineligible to play for Arsenal in the Europa League, while Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud both left the club and left a notable void in the Gunners’ attacking section. All this naturally means that the two strikers have a very good chance of getting significant time on the pitch separately. And if they play together… Well, it was always a mouth-watering prospect on paper, but Arsene Wenger has now decided to put that scenario into practice.

On This Day: Arsenal reach 2015 FA Cup Final 0

Posted on April 18, 2018 by Harry Kettle

It’s time to take yet another trip down memory lane as we look back on Arsenal’s game against Reading from three years ago today. The showdown, which was an FA Cup semi-final, took place at Wembley and was looked at as the Gunners’ big chance to reach yet another cup final. Alas, the Berkshire club weren’t going to go down without a fight, and it took until extra time for Arsene Wenger’s side to secure their place in the final of football’s oldest cup club competition.

It’s always fun to take a look back on years gone by, especially when it comes to Arsenal. While the last few years have been questionable, the Gunners are largely considered to be one of the most successful English clubs of the modern era. As such, they’ve been involved in some fascinating matches, with this clash against Middlesbrough from twelve months ago being one of them.

Arsenal were defeated at Newcastle’s St. James’ Park on Sunday with Alexandre Lacazette’s brilliant 14th-minute opener overturned by Ayoze Perez in the 29th and Matt Ritchie in the 68th. This was the Gunners’ fifth consecutive Premier League defeat away from home.

Arsenal suffer fifth straight away league defeat at Newcastle 0

On Sunday, Arsenal suffered a 2-1 defeat at Newcastle, to continue their terrible run of form away from home in the Premier League.

Arsenal had the first effort of the game as striker Alexandre Lacazette miss-hit a shot wide of goal. The home side responded on ten minutes, as Petr Cech produced a comfortable save from a Kenedy strike.

The Gunners took the lead on 14 minutes. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ran at Jamaal Lascelles before putting the ball past the defender. The Gabon international then found Lacazette at the far post, who slides in to put the ball past Dubravka in the home goal.

Lacazette on Wenger and the Europa League final 0

Much has been said and written about the importance of the Europa League for Arsenal lately. At the moment, the prospect of winning the Europe’s second-tier competition is the only feasible scenario that would see the club qualify for next season’s Champions League, but Alexandre Lacazette believes its significance goes beyond that aspect.

In a season that can hardly be described as a successful one on other fronts, winning such an important trophy may hold the key to manager Arsene Wenger staying at the club. The striker says it would be a good way to save the season as the team aren’t doing particularly well in the Premier League. He points out that Wenger has done much for the club during his reign which now stretches past the two-decade mark.
