Details confirmed for 2020 Community Shield 0

Posted on August 13, 2020 by Harry Kettle

While the Community Shield usually seems pretty far away after the end of one season, that isn’t the case this time around with such a short turnaround before the new campaign gets underway. This year Arsenal, the FA Cup winners, will go head to head with Premier League champions Liverpool for the right to claim the first trophy of the new season.

Arsenal.com has also released the official details of the game as Gunners fans look ahead to what they hope will be the sort of season we look back on in 20 years and say “wow”.

Ozil has no intention of leaving Arsenal this summer 0

Posted on August 13, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Mesut Ozil has once again confirmed his stance that he won’t be leaving Arsenal before his contract expires in 2021.

The last time the German attacking midfielder was given a game was back in March, when Arsenal beat West Ham by 1-0 at the Emirates in the Premier League. His place in the team has seemed lost from the earliest stages of the season, when Unai Emery, still at the helm back then, repeatedly claimed he was leaving Ozil out only for tactical reasons. He was given another chance to reclaim it when Mikel Arteta took over, but the fact that even the new coach hasn’t used him for such a long time points towards the player having no place in his plans. Overall, Ozil played a total of 23 games in 2019/20, scoring once and assisting three times.

As confirmed by Arsenal.com, the vote is now open to determine the club’s official Goal of the Season for the 2019/20 campaign. They sent out the following press release to announce the contenders.

“We have 10 of the best to choose from – with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang featuring twice for his strikes against Aston Villa and Chelsea, and Kim Little doing the same for her goals against Reading and Tottenham.

Does Tyreece John-Jules’ acrobatic effort against Everton get your vote? How about Gabriel Martinelli’s unforgettable run and finish at Stamford Bridge, or Joe Willock’s long-range screamer at Liverpool?

Arsenal close in on Willian? 0

Posted on August 10, 2020 by Harry Kettle

There have been rumours flying around for quite some time now regarding the future of Chelsea and Brazil star Willian, and now, it finally seems as if we’re starting to see some movement. Arsenal have seemingly made it crystal clear that they’re interested in the possibility of signing him, and on the flip side, we’ve heard about Willian’s displeasure after the Blues have failed to really make him a priority.

On Instagram yesterday, Willian confirmed that he will be leaving Stamford Bridge in search of pastures new.

There’s no denying the fact that he’s been one of the best players in the Premier League during the campaign, and now, he has been officially confirmed as Arsenal’s player of the season. We are, of course, talking about Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, with the club making the following statement.

“We can now reveal our 2019/20 Player of the Season – as voted for by you, the fans.

Our overwhelming winner is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has enjoyed another sensational campaign in red and white, and claimed 74 per cent of the votes cast.

Aubameyang close to signing new Arsenal deal 0

Fans have been asking a string of questions in regards to the future of Pierre-Emerick Aubaemyang in recent months, and we haven’t really had all too many answers. We probably shouldn’t be surprised by that considering how hectic the end of the campaign has been, but now, it appears as if we’re edging closer and closer towards getting a definitive answer one way or the other.

As reported by The Telegraph, it seems as if the Gunners are closing in on a new three-year deal for the popular forward. Nobody really knows whether or not this is entirely accurate, but based on what we know up to this point, fans can be forgiven for getting a little bit excited.

Many felt as if it was incredibly unlikely, but when it mattered the most, Arsenal Football Club stepped up to the plate and got the job done as they captured the FA Cup once again on Saturday evening. They were able to come from behind to beat London rivals Chelsea 2-1 in the final at Wembley, cementing their place in next season’s UEFA Europa League in the process.

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka recently gave an interview to Swiss outlet Blick and spoke about many things, including his motivation when wearing an Arsenal shirt after the issues which he went through in the early stages of the season.

First of all, the Switzerland international was asked about the size of Arsenal as a club at the moment, with the interviewer expressing some reservation about the club being considered ‘big’ after such an underwhelming season.
