On This Day In 2017: Arsenal lift the FA Cup 0

Posted on May 27, 2018 by Harry Kettle

While Arsenal haven’t exactly been successful in the Premier League in the last few years, they’ve managed to find some success in the FA Cup. As we take another trip down memory lane, it’s time to look at the last big trophy victory for Arsene Wenger before he rode off into the sunset this season.

This time last year, Arsenal fans were celebrating a huge 2-1 victory over Chelsea in a game which many weren’t expecting them to win. The Gunners, while successful in the FA Cup on many different occasions, were considered to be the underdogs – and in many ways, that probably favoured them. It felt like the Blues came in with an aura of overconfidence as if they were just naturally expecting to win the trophy without too much effort.

It’s time for another trip down memory lane, and this time, it’s a little bit more positive. We’re going to be talking about a game from seven years ago today, which saw Arsenal give themselves a glimmer of hope in the race to become Champions of England. The location was Emirates Stadium, and the game in question saw the Gunners host the eventual league champions Manchester United in what proved to be a tight yet scintillating encounter in North London.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is on the way out, and because of that, the rumours have begun regarding who will replace the Frenchman as manager. After more than two decades of the same man being in charge many fans are wondering whether or not the club will go for a different change of pace this time around, but if this specific man is put in charge, you could argue he’d implement the same kind of style that Wenger did for many years.

Rumours in football can either create excitement or dread, depending on the nature of the specific rumour. Thankfully for Arsenal fans, this specific ‘rumour’ is a little bit more substantial than most, with Daily Mirror reporting that Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa may not be fit for their UEFA Europa League semi-final first-leg game against Arsenal. Yes, it’s the same Diego Costa that once played for Chelsea and was vilified for being the sport’s equivalent of a supervillain.

Should Cesc Fabregas return to Arsenal? 1

There are plenty of rumours surrounding players from around the world potentially coming to Arsenal, but none will strike a chord as much as this story involving Cesc Fabregas. Apparently, according to the man himself, he’d consider returning to the Emirates as a coach once his playing days are over – and while that’s all well and good, we’d be curious to see whether or not he’d entertain the idea of something more.

It seems that Arsenal are one of the main characters in the ‘Where will Thomas Tuchel be managing next season’ saga. Recent reports from the German media really confused the situation surrounding the talented boss.

One German media organisation claimed that Tuchel had signed a deal with Arsenal, while another completely contradicted its competitor saying that Tuchel is more likely to move to Paris.

Bayern the preferred option for Tuchel

Now according to Sky Sports, the former Dortmund boss’ most likely destination this summer is German giants Bayern Munich. The move would be an understandable one for Tuchel.

According to the Daily Express, Arsenal and Chelsea are set to go head-to-head this summer to sign Atletico Madrid’s highly-rated goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

The Slovenian international has established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in European football in the past few seasons. The stopper has a release clause of £88million in his contract and Atletico are not likely to let him go without a fight.

On Arsenal’s wanted list

The Express claims that Oblak is on the wanted list of both London clubs as they look to add to their goalkeeping options. The Gunners are claimed to have scouted Oblak on a number of occasions.

According to German media outlet Kicker, former Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel has turned down the overtures of Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich to replace Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger this summer.

Kicker claims they have inside information on the move, which if true could mean a big change at Arsenal. The report suggests that Tuchel is in negotiations with officials over joining the north London club. The German boss was previously linked with a move to Arsenal last summer, only for Wenger to sign a two-year deal.

Wenger claims Olivier Giroud wanted to stay at Arsenal 0

Posted on March 23, 2018 by David Nugent

According to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, France international forward Olivier Giroud wanted to stay at Arsenal, but had to move to Chelsea in January in search of first team football.

Wenger told Arsenal Magazine: “Olivier is an Arsenal man as well.

“He left for similar reasons to Theo Walcott, by being sad to leave but also objective enough to analyse his situation. His professional career demanded that he moved, but his heart wanted him to stay.

“Both Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud are similar cases on that front.

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

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.
