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.

Should Jack Wilshere stay at Arsenal or leave? 0

Posted on March 17, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Jack Wilshere is one of the most polarising players in world football, and that isn’t a ‘shocking’ statement to make. The Englishman has had an extremely inconsistent career over the years as a member of Arsenal Football Club, and now, the question of whether or not he’ll remain at the Emirates continues to plague the Gunners’ season.

We’ve experienced this kind of thing over the last twelve months with Alexis Sanchez, and it seems as if history is doomed to repeat itself. Of course, the two men are incredibly different both on and off the pitch, but there are certainly similarities in the way the media are portraying this whole thing.

Southampton date changed again as Arsenal warns fans about Moscow 0

Arsenal’s home game against the relegation-threatened Southampton this season was initially scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 7th, but it was later moved to Monday evening in order to enable live coverage by Sky television.

Now, due to Arsenal playing a Europa League game against CSKA in Moscow the following Thursday, it has been rescheduled again. It will be played on Sunday, April 8th, kicking off at 2:15 PM.

Having previously sacked Mauricio Pellegrino, the Saints have appointed Mark Hughes as their new manager. How much sense exactly it makes to sack a manager for being involved in a relegation battle only to hire a manager that has already been sacked elsewhere for the same reason (Stoke City) remains to be seen.

Arsenal reportedly interested in Real Madrid’s Lucas Vazquez 0

Posted on March 16, 2018 by Harry Kettle

According to Diario Gol, Arsenal are one of the many teams interested in acquiring the services of Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez this summer.

The 26-year-old has been sought after for a long time now, with many teams both in Spain and abroad feeling like they can offer him a better home that he’s currently got at the Bernabeu. As we just mentioned, the Gunners are considered to be one of the frontrunners when it comes to signing Vazquez, which opens some interesting doors regarding what they can accomplish moving forward.

Display against AC Milan encouraging for Arsenal 0

I am usually very sceptical about Arsenal in general. Too many times the Gunners have flattered to deceive in recent seasons. However, I have to say Arsene Wenger’s team produced an encouraging display against AC Milan on Thursday night.

The 3-1 win on the night meant that the team from north London went through to the last eight of the competition with a 5-1 aggregate win, which in all fairness did flatter the Gunners.

Sanchez opens up about Wenger’s attempts to keep him at Arsenal 0

The seemingly never-ending saga of Alexis Sanchez’s departure from Arsenal has another new chapter, as the Chilean superstar has revealed what Arsene Wenger said when attempting to convince him to stay at the Emirates.

According to Daily Mirror, Sanchez recently did an interview with a television station in Chile which is when the comments were made. The 29-year-old was with Arsenal for four years prior to making the switch over to Old Trafford in January.

“He was very fond of me and he didn’t want to let me go,” said Sanchez.

A short look at the Watford game 0

Arsenal deservedly beat Watford 3-0 at the Emirates on Sunday. Just like against AC Milan three days earlier, a lot of things went right. Let’s take a short look.

Quick transition

First of all, it should be said that Mohamed Elneny played a big part in this game. Present all around the pitch and in all segments of the game, he simply oozed composure with smart, well-measured passing and moved from tight spaces into larger pockets whenever possible.

Mertesacker reveals stress involved with playing for Arsenal 0

Posted on March 11, 2018 by Harry Kettle

German defender Per Mertesacker has been a rock at the heart of Arsenal’s defence ever since joining the club, but now, it seems as if the 33-year-old is just about ready to hang up his boots due to the stress involved with playing the beautiful game.

During an interview with magazine Der Spiegel, Mertesacker made a handful of somewhat startling comments regarding what it feels like to play at this level. The 2014 World Cup winner and former Werder Bremen star has been at the Emirates since 2011 and has made well over 150 appearances for the North London club.

Arsenal reach landmark Premier League milestone 0

Posted on March 11, 2018 by Harry Kettle

We questioned whether or not Arsenal would rest players for the key clash against Watford, and despite that coming to fruition with Ramsey, Koscielny and Wilshere all not starting, they’ve managed to take the lead against the Hornets at the Emirates.

As the game progresses things could always shift one way or another, as we’ve seen this afternoon with the Old Firm derby, but Shkodran Mustafi’s opening goal is actually much more important than some fans may realise.


Arsenal v Watford Premier League Preview 0

Posted on March 10, 2018 by David Nugent

Arsenal’s Premier League campaign has been a poor one so far. The Gunners look to be out of the race for a top-four finish, but will still be clinging to the hope that one of the top-four teams slip up in the remaining months of the season.

However, for Arsenal to capitalise on any slip-ups they must start winning games in the league, starting with a home clash against Watford on Sunday.
