Arsenal fall to Brentford 0

Posted on July 20, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal’s pre-season suffered a bit of a knock as they fell to Brentford in a 2-1 friendly defeat, in a game which many people didn’t even know was happening. The Gunners were coming off the back of an 8-0 demolition of Boreham Wood, and while we can’t take all too much from pre-season, it’s certainly interesting to see that they were turned over by a Championship side who aren’t even considered to be realistic promotion contenders this season.

Arsenal look unlikely to sign Kingsley Coman 0

According to the Guardian, Arsenal boss Unai Emery is looking to sign Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman this summer to add pace to wide options. A reported asking price of £44million is likely to scupper any interest, though.

As we all know, reported Arsenal have had a limited budget to spend on new arrivals this summer and have already spent it on signing the likes of Bernd Leno, Sokratis and Lucas Torreira, while adding Stephan Lichtsteiner on a free.

Should Arsenal pursue an interest in Malcom? 0

Posted on July 19, 2018 by David Nugent

According to a report from Sky Sports yesterday, Everton are in advanced talks to sign Bordeaux’s highly-rated young winger Malcom for an initial fee of around £30million-plus add-ons.

There have since been conflicting reports over the Toffees bid for the youngster. Some reports suggest that the Merseysiders are not interested, while others indicate that they could advance the deal with a meeting later today.

Malcom was linked with Arsenal

Last season the Brazilian starlet was linked with a big-money move to Arsenal. Reports France indicates that Bordeaux refused to sell the youngster in January, but told him that he could move this summer if the price is right.

Chelsea consider re-signing Petr Cech 0

Posted on July 18, 2018 by David Nugent

According to Sky Sports, Chelsea are considering re-signing Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech this summer, as current Blues number one Thibaut Courtois looks set for a move to Real Madrid.

The move would seem a strange one, but Cech was only ousted from the Chelsea team due to Courtois being such a promising and highly-rated player.

Cech is a Chelsea hero

The veteran goalkeeper is a true Chelsea hero, having spent 11 years with the Blues before making a move across the capital to join Arsenal in 2015. While he has endured mixed fortunes in north London, Cech enjoyed an incredible career at Stamford Bridge.

Everton want Welbeck 0

According to the rumour mill, Everton Football Club are interested in acquiring the services of Danny Welbeck. The Englishman has certainly had an interesting journey throughout the course of his career after initially being positioned as the next big thing for Manchester United, only for things to not quite work out that way. Instead, he made the switch to Arsenal where he currently resides, and it’ll be interesting to see whether or not Unai Emery considers him to be a priority.

The curious case of Jeremie Aliadiere 1

Posted on July 18, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Recently, Arsenal welcomed a series of perceived ‘club legends’ back to the Emirates for a media day ahead of their upcoming game in September. The likes of Robert Pires, Ray Parlour and David Seaman were in attendance, all of whom could logically claim to be a ‘legend’ from within the ranks of Arsenal Football Club. One man who turned some heads with his appearance, however, was former striker Jeremie Aliadiere.

Arsenal duo face uncertain futures 0

Posted on July 17, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the Telegraph, Arsenal duo David Ospina and Danny Welbeck face uncertain futures at the north London club. The pair has yet to return from World Cup duty after representing Colombia and England respectively in Russia.

The pair have never convinced at Arsenal

Neither of the pair has ever convinced that they can retain their starting roles in the Gunners team. David Ospina was Petr Cech’s backup last season and was only really thrown in when the former Chelsea ‘keepers form suffered a wobble.

New lease of life for Chambers? 0

Posted on July 17, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Calum Chambers hasn’t always necessarily had the easiest of roads at the Emirates, and despite being dubbed as a ‘youngster’, at 23 years of age, you could argue that he’s only a few years away from the prime of his career. Since arriving back in 2014 he’s made over 50 appearances for the club and has managed to enjoy a handful of effective showings in an Arsenal top, but unfortunately, the consistency has eluded him – until now, we hope.

Arsenal continue contract talks with Aaron Ramsey 0

Posted on July 16, 2018 by David Nugent

According to reports from Sky Sports, Arsenal are still in negotiations with Wales international midfielder Aaron Ramsey over a new deal. The 27-year-old has just one year left on his current contract with the North London club.

Spanish boss Unai Emery is understandably keen for the Gunners to tie down the midfielder on a long-term contract. The Spaniard has stated that Ramsey is an important player to the club.

Arsenal has previous with this sort of situation

Arsenal has a long history of players leaving their contract to expire or run to the last few months so that they get a bigger packet at Arsenal, or move on in a cut-price deal.

The importance of pre-season friendlies 0

Posted on July 16, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Something that people often sleep on in football is the importance of pre-season friendlies, and what they can do not only for a team’s confidence – but for their overall effectiveness as the real campaign begins. If you don’t schedule enough of them then you probably won’t get the necessary amount of experience or match fitness to deal with the physicality of the Premier League or most other top leagues for that matter, and if you organise too many, then you run the risk of wearing your players out.
