As much as we love how active Unai Emery seems to be in the summer transfer window, there’s also room for caution. While his tactic of throwing things against the wall and seeing what sticks is certainly a fun one, it can also be a little bit dangerous too. If certain transfers don’t come off then he could be left standing around with nothing by the time the season begins, or instead of nothing, one of his main acquisitions could end up being Marouane Fellaini.
The rumour mill continues to run at full steam, with dozens of players being linked with a move to the Emirates. Some seem more realistic than others, but they’re making the headlines all the same – and Unai Emery is a big reason for that. The Spaniard has introduced a level of excitement which we haven’t seen all too often in recent times, and as we look ahead to the future, there are more than a few reasons to be optimistic.
The dust has officially settled on the 2017/18 Premier League season, and for the most part, it was a pretty interesting year. While Manchester City were able to run away with the title at the top of the table, there were plenty of other stories going on throughout the division worth talking about. One of the biggest, which had been brewing for quite some time, was Alexis Sanchez’s move from Arsenal to Manchester United – which sent Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the opposite direction.
While the dust is only just starting to settle in regards to the 2017/18 Premier League season, we’re already extremely invested in seeing what’s going to go down next year – which is hardly a surprise. Sure, the World Cup is going to keep us occupied for a few months, but the consistency and the drama of domestic football is something that is always going to capture our hearts and attention.
We’re back for yet another trip down memory lane, and this one comes from a game that took place three years ago. It was Arsenal vs Manchester United in a clash that was set to provide some clarity on who would end up finishing 3rd in the Premier League, and thankfully for the Gunners, they were able to ‘hold serve’ so to speak by picking up a 1-1 draw against The Red Devils at Old Trafford.
Gareth Southgate has officially revealed his England squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and if you’re an Arsenal fan, there’s some good news and there’s some bad news. The bad news is that Jack Wilshere hasn’t been selected, whereas the good news lies in the fact that Danny Welbeck will be on the plane to Russia.
It’s always tough to admit when you’re in the wrong, and it’s even tougher to admit when you’ve missed an opportunity. As we’ve seen over the last few years, Arsene Wenger isn’t shy when it comes to talking about some of his mistakes from years gone by – and while we appreciate that in regards to Arsenal’s exploits on the pitch, it isn’t really all too helpful when it comes to players that he wishes he would’ve signed.
It’s time for another trip down memory lane, as we take a look back at Arsenal’s 2-0 victory over Manchester United from twelve months ago. In many ways, the club’s season was going in a similar direction to this one, as they struggled to gain a foothold in the race for Champions League qualification. Of course, they had the FA Cup to contend with as opposed to the Europa League, but they were still facing the very real possibility of finishing outside the top four and missing UCL qualification for the first time in what felt like forever.
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 headed into Sunday afternoon’s game against Manchester United at Old Trafford with a weakened side. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger fielded a mixture of young and fringe players in the clash.
The team from north London actually produced a decent display. They were unfortunate to lose 2-1 courtesy of a stoppage-time Marouane Fellaini winner. Despite the positive performance, the game saw Arsenal suffer yet another away defeat in the Premier League. The Gunners away record this season is a woeful one.
