Manchester United in for Bellerin 0

Posted on March 19, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

Manchester United have been reported to have expressed an interest in signing Arsenal fullback Hector Bellerin.

According to Manchester Evening News, Jose Mourinho is looking to bring in a long-term successor to Antonio Valencia. The 32-year-old Ecuadorian has been one of Premier League’s most consistent performers in a fullback position for several years, but as he has reached an age when his overall level is likely to decline, it makes sense for United to start thinking about the future of the position. Bellerin, who boasts similar qualities but is nine years younger, would fit their need well.

Why Andre Silva target is a big mistake for Arsenal 0

Posted on March 19, 2018 by Harry Kettle

As reported by Daily Mirror, AC Milan forward Andre Silva is a target for Arsene Wenger heading into the summer transfer window, although there seems to be competition from an unexpected club – Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The 22-year-old Portuguese superstar has been on the radar of many top European clubs for quite some time now, and as it turns out, the Gunners are a part of that list. Ironically enough Silva recently visited the Emirates as an opposition player, which could’ve actually helped Arsenal’s case as they continue to go in search of Champions League football.

Should Arsenal make a move for Anthony Martial? 0

Posted on March 19, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho may sell young French forward Anthony Martial this summer, as he looks to reshape his squad. The Portuguese boss has been very vocal in the criticism of his squad, apart from for some reason Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku.

Rumours are doing the rounds suggest that Arsenal may be interested in signing the forward this summer.

Struggled for first team football this season

Martial has struggled for first team football this season at Old Trafford. The deal that saw the forward arrive at United cost the Red Devils a potential transfer fee of £58million.

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.
