Lacazette plays down Aubameyang rivalry 0

Posted on July 30, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

Alexandre Lacazette claims he’s not looking at Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as a rival for a place in the team, but rather as a teammate with whom he can form a powerful attacking partnership.

Lacazette arrived to the Emirates last summer and Aubameyang made the switch from Borussia Dortmund in January, with both transfer fees exceeding £50million. Meanwhile, the club said farewell to Olivier Giroud after five and a half years, during which the tall Frenchman made 253 appearances and scored 105 goals.

Recently a colleague of mine wrote about Jeremie Aliadiere’s questionable status as an Arsenal legend after the French forward appeared for Arsenal legends. As we all know, Aliadiere is only a legend in his own lunchtime.

However, Arsenal’s French striker Alexandre Lacazette has called midfielder Aaron Ramsey a legend in an interview talking about the Welshman’s future in north London.

Lacazette told Sky Sports News: “Aaron has been there for about 10 years, he is like a legend at the club.

“We have to be respectful for everything he has done and of course with his quality, he can help the team to be better. He brings stability, quality and leadership.

Will Aubameyang start the new season out wide for Arsenal? 0

In the January transfer window, Arsenal signed one of the most lethal strikers in the European game in the shape of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Gabon international had been prolific at former clubs St Etienne and Dortmund.

Had previously played on the wing

Aubameyang is outstanding in front of goal when given the opportunities. In fact, such is his reputation for scoring goals, the 28-year-old is odds of 7/1 to win the Premier League Golden Boot, the third favourite to claim the award.

He arrived as a central striker, but he had previously played wide on the left of attack. Arsenal already had French striker Alexandre Lacazette in their squad.

Should Arsenal keep Danny Welbeck this summer? 0

Posted on July 21, 2018 by David Nugent

According to TalkSPORT, Arsenal are ready to sell England international striker Danny Welbeck for £15million, with Everton reportedly interested in signing the former Manchester United star this summer.

Welbeck has less than a year left on his contract in north London, but the Gunners are not desperate to offer the forward a new deal. That means either keeping him until the end of his contract or selling him for a relatively low price this summer.

For anybody who has seen Arsenal play in the last season or two, or even longer than that, it has been impossible not to perceive where the main problems lie, as well as the place where only a tweak or two would do just fine. Going forward, there is very little you could pinpoint as wrong, especially in the Premier League towards the end of the season with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on great form since his arrival from Borussia Dortmund.

Alexandre Lacazette misses out on France’s World Cup squad 1

Posted on May 18, 2018 by David Nugent

France boss Didier Deschamps named his 23-man World Cup squad on Thursday. Deschamps has an abundance of talented players to choose from but decided to omit Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette from his squad for Russia 2018.

The decision will have come as a slight surprise for the former Lyon striker after he played in France’s November friendlies, scoring a brace in a 2-2 draw with world champions Germany.

French boss has a lot of attacking talent at his disposal

Deschamps admitted his omission was due to the sheer number of attacking players available to him. The likes of Kylian Mbappe, Olivier Giroud, Antoine Griezmann and Nabil Fekir were all named in that 23-man squad.

Wenger accused of not showing Lacazette respect 1

While the season may be over with the World Cup still being a few weeks away, there’s still plenty to discuss in the world of Arsenal Football Club. With players set to come and players set to leave, it’s always interesting to see some of the media’s biggest reactions in the wake of the campaign coming to an end. In this instance, as reported by Metro, we’re looking into some comments made recently by Charlie Nicholas.

The former Arsenal star had some harsh words for Arsene Wenger, claiming that he hasn’t been showing Alexandre Lacazette enough respect.

Aubameyang or Lacazette? 4

While some are choosing to be down in the dumps regarding the departure of Arsene Wenger, others are wisely choosing to look on the bright side of things. Arsenal Football Club is entering an entirely new era in the realms of English football, as the last great ‘long-term’ boss walks away from the Premier League – probably for good. While he could always return with another club, that isn’t the Gunners’ concern anymore, and instead, we should be drooling over the prospect of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette getting a full season together.

Arsenal’s biggest key to victory tonight 0

Posted on May 03, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Tonight will see the conclusion of Arsenal’s journey to the final of the Europa League, and one way or another, it’s going to end in heartbreak for somebody. Either the Gunners will fall just before the final hurdle, or the hotly tipped Spaniards will falter down the stretch as they attempt to secure their second UEL title under the reign of Diego Simeone. One thing is for sure, however – by the end of the night, there are going to be plenty of talking points coming out of the second leg.

Arsenal miss big opportunity against Atletico 0

Posted on April 27, 2018 by David Nugent

In terms of results, Arsenal’s 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid at the Emirates Stadium in the Europa League semi-final first leg was not the worst in the world.

However, the result does not tell the whole story. It does not tell how Arsenal dominated the game. It also does not tell how the Gunners played against Atletico for over 80 minutes of the game. Overall, the draw is a missed opportunity considering the circumstances.
