Milan clubs to vie for Ozil 0

Posted on October 15, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

As reported by the Mirror, AC Milan and Inter Milan are both heavily interested in signing Arsenal’s outcast Mesut Ozil.

Ozil made only three appearances in all competitions this season and his relationship with manager Unai Emery is said to be severely damaged. He hasn’t even been named on the bench for the last several games, and Emery explained it more than once, saying that it was a decision unrelated to his fitness and that other players, those that were included, deserved it more than Ozil.

The David Luiz query 0

Posted on October 15, 2019 by Harry Kettle

There are many players littered throughout Arsenal’s squad that we can’t quite figure out for better or worse. One of the best examples of that is David Luiz, who continues to provide us all with moments, both good and bad, that leave you considering what his legacy is going to be when he hangs up his boots for good. Some days he scores the winner in a vital Premier League game, and then the next he puts in one of the worst performances we’ve seen from a centre-back in years. It’s all about swings and roundabouts, of course, but that can be a bit too chaotic sometimes.

The Donyell Malen pursuit 0

Posted on October 14, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

According to reports from various outlets, Arsenal are interested in bringing Donyell Malen back to the club.

The Gunners took Malen from the Ajax Academy in 2015 at the age of 15, and much hope was placed into him becoming a regular feature of the first team in the future. However, it was judged that the hope had belied the actual progress and after two years in north London, he was sold back to Netherlands, to PSV Eindhoven for €600,000 (transfermarkt.com) and with no buyback clause included into the deal. But as it can sometimes happen, Malen has kicked on from there and made significant progress in his career, recently even breaking into the Netherlands national team for which he scored on his debut – against Germany, no less.

Pepe scores as Ivory Coast thrive 0

The international break has pros and cons, most of which we’re all pretty aware of having been football fans for a long time. While we worry about Arsenal players sustaining injuries that could seriously harm their season, there’s also another side of the coin. That side is that players from within the squad are capable of giving themselves a much needed confidence boost heading back into the domestic game.

Leah Williamson’s important message 0

Posted on October 14, 2019 by Harry Kettle

Leah Williamson is one of the best female stars that Arsenal currently has at the club and even that might be an understatement. With this in mind, we think it’s important for the world to read a few of the words from her interview with Arsenal.com. It may seem pointless to some, but there’s a message or two in there that needs to be shared.

“Dream big. That’s something every girl should be able to do.

Was Lacazette offered to Zenit? 0

Posted on October 12, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

An interesting story has appeared in the media today (Saturday). Apparently, Dmitry Cheltsov, the agent of Alexandre Lacazette, offered Zenit Saint Petersburg the chance to sign the French forward this summer.

TalkSPORT have relayed an interview Cheltsov gave to Sport Business Gazeta, quoting him in saying, “I offered Alexandre Lacazette to Zenit”.

If this is true, then there are several questions that need to be asked here. First of all – whose idea was this? Is it something Lacazette knew about beforehand? Because if he did, then Arsenal have a potential “player wants out” problem in the near future. If not, how was Cheltsov planning to explain to his client that he was working on a deal to send him to Russia?

Guendouzi wins September Player of the Month 0

Posted on October 12, 2019 by Harry Kettle

As reported by Arsenal.com, the official votes are in, and Matteo Guendouzi has been voted as the Player of the Month for Arsenal in the month of September. Below is the official statement released by the club.

“Matteo Guendouzi is your September Player of the Month! The France Under-21 international had a superb month, delivering an inspirational second-half performance as we came back to draw 2-2 with Tottenham.

Guendouzi was also the driving force as we twice came from behind to beat Aston Villa 3-2.

The 20-year-old won a penalty that Nicolas Pepe converted, before laying on an assist for Calum Chambers.

Aubameyang named Premier League Player of the Month for September 0

Posted on October 11, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang continues to shine as Arsenal’s brightest star this season. Having shared the Premier League Golden Boot last season with Liverpool duo of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane (22 goals each), the former Borussia Dortmund man now has seven strikes from eight games, just one shy of Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham and Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero.

Recognizing his superb form which has often dragged Arsenal forward despite some abysmal showings by the sections of the team, the Premier League have chosen him as the best player for the month of September, 2019. It could, perhaps, be argued by other clubs’ supporters that some of their players also played some fabulous games last month, but in terms of how much a player’s performance has meant to his team, Aubameyang clearly outstrips them all.

Tierney is ready to thrive with Arsenal 0

Posted on October 11, 2019 by Harry Kettle

One of the most exciting additions to the Arsenal squad this past summer was the signing of Celtic defender Kieran Tierney. The youngster is widely considered to be one of the most exciting stars in the Premier League this season, and there’s a lot of potential for him in the eyes of many fans.

In a recent interview with Arsenal.com, Tierney took the time to open up and give his thoughts on this next chapter of his career. While there may be some pressure on his shoulders, you certainly wouldn’t be able to tell.

International joy or despair? 0

Posted on October 11, 2019 by Harry Kettle

There’s no point in saying otherwise: the international break is a painful thing to endure for the majority of football fans, but as is the case during every single edition of it, we think it’s best to look on the positive side of things as opposed to the negative. Sure, it’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of berating international teams and their need to play all year round, but that doesn’t always need to be the case. Sometimes, we can take an objective view of things, which we understand can be a bit of a foreign concept to football fans sometimes.
