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.

Arsenal have reportedly signed a contract extension with Emirates that will keep the pair together for another five years, with the new contract expiring at the end of the 2023/2024 season.

Arsenal have been struggling in the league this season as their campaign has been one to forget thus far. in their last game they were beaten by Tottenham 1-0, with Harry Kane once again proving the difference between the two sides.

Arsenal lack a killer instinct 0

The Arsenal players like to make life interesting for their supporters. Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium was a good example of that theory.

Arsenal looked in complete control in the first half and Newcastle barely threatened the Gunners goal. However, Arsenal failed to score a killer second goal.

As it is near the season of giving, the Arsenal defence decided to give the visitors some great opportunities to something from this game. Fortunately, for the Gunners, Newcastle could not find the net with a SAT NAV at the minute.

Arsenal have recently embarked upon a very good run of form that has allowed them to shake off an apparent crisis that threatened to derail their Premier League campaign before it had really even begun.

Their 2-1 win over Swansea City at the weekend displayed their ever-strengthening backbone, as they came from a goal down to beat the plucky Welsh side. They are also looking to further their campaigns in the Carabao Cup and Europa League, with recent wins over Norwich and Red Star Belgrade helping them to continue their impressive run.

Arsenal’s home and away records polar opposites 0

Yesterday in my article about Arsenal’s 2-1 weekend win over Swansea, I mentioned that Arsenal were enjoying an encouraging run of form on home soil in the Premier League.

What I was unaware of at the time of writing was that the north London side are enjoying their best ever run of wins at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsene Wenger’s side have now recorded 13 straight home wins in all competitions. The last team to win at the Emirate Stadium were Bayern Munich in last season’s Champions League. The last team to win at the Emirates was Watford way back in January.

Arsenal will look to continue their recent decent run of form on Saturday afternoon, as they welcome Swansea to the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners have won four of their last six Premier League outings. Last time out in the Premier League, Arsene Wenger’s side hammered struggling Everton 5-2 at Goodison Park after the dismissal of Toffees midfielder Idrissa ‘Gana’ Gueye.

The win means that Arsenal are only behind fourth-place Chelsea on goal difference in the table. One major positive for the Gunners in recent seasons has been their home record. The team from north London are unbeaten at the Emirates in 11 Premier League games, having recorded ten victories, while also winning their last nine home games.

Ahead of Thursday’s Europa League trip to face BATE Borisov, manager Arsene Wenger has admitted his young players are fighting for their Arsenal future, reports the Express.

The Gunners boss has named a young side to travel to Belarus, with the likes of Vlad Dragomir and Charlie Gilmour being surprise selections, and has revealed this could be the only chance many of the youngsters will get to impress at senior level.

“This is the kind of job you do not get 10 opportunities to play for Arsenal. When you get it, even if they only get 20 minutes, you have to convince people you have the qualities to do it and you have the courage to play and show your qualities,” said Wenger.

Inter turn down chance to sign Ozil 0

According to Calciomercato via talkSPORT, Inter Milan have passed down the chance to sign Arsenal and Germany playmaker Mesut Ozil. The Serie A outfit were linked with a part exchange move that would see Joao Mario heading to the Emirates, but it now seems Inter will pursue other targets.

Ozil is in the last year of his contract with Arsenal, having so far rejected an extension. The 28-year-old had some fleeting interest in his signature over the summer, but suitors failed to match his £40m price tag and lofty wage demands.

Arsenal v West Brom Premier League Preview 0

Posted on September 24, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal host West Brom at the Emirates on Monday night, as the Gunners look to continue their positive momentum in the Premier League.

Arsenal heads into this clash on the back of a 1-0 win over League One Doncaster in the League Cup in midweek. However, it was a 0-0 draw at champions Arsenal last time out in the Premier League that will send the Gunners out in good spirits.

Arsene Wenger’s side are now four games unbeaten in all competitions, having recorded three victories. The latest wins have certainly lifted the doom and gloom slightly of the fans.

Wenger facing another contract saga with Ramsey and Welbeck 0

Posted on September 23, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

After seeing Arsenal fail to agree new deals with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, it appears Arsene Wenger is desperate to avoid a similar situation with the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Danny Welbeck, whose contract will enter the last year at the end of the season, reports the Daily Star.

“Yes, that is something we want to address. Both of them are in a good moment for us. But this season there were 107 players in the Premier League who got into the final year of their contract for the first time and you will see that more,” said Wenger.
