Does Stan Kroenke needs to go? 0

Posted on April 21, 2021 by Harry Kettle

For years now Arsenal fans have been wondering whether or not Stan Kroenke is the right man to be at the head of the table within their football club and, more often than not, the answer has been no.

The curiosity surrounding that question has intensified in the wake of the European Super League debacle – which Kroenke is also at the head of. While the Gunners have apologised for even thinking about signing up, fans aren’t going to forget the fact that Stan has been at the forefront of the operation.

The plans to establish the so-called European Super League have been shelved following the withdrawal of all six Premier League clubs from the project.

It’s been a hectic few days for everyone involved, most notably the players and the fans of all six clubs, who all stood up admirably in opposing the idea. Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson had called for a meeting of all Premier League captains to discuss further steps to stop the change from happening for which now, thankfully, there’s no need.

As for Arsenal, they’ve apologized through an open letter to the fans, stressing that their withdrawal from the project came as a result of the passionate protests.

Several Arsenal fan groups are demanding that the banners spread across the stands of the Emirates Stadium, which cover the empty seats in the absence of supporters, are removed, following the club’s decision to be a part of the ‘European Super League’ project, according to The Telegraph. The call follows the same from Liverpool fans, who also want their banners removed from Anfield.

Arteta reflects on disappointing Fulham draw 0

Posted on April 20, 2021 by Harry Kettle

It’s safe to say the focus of the football world has shifted from the end of the domestic season to what’ll end up happening with the European Super League. Of course, we won’t officially know what’s going to happen for days, weeks and potentially even months, leaving many of us feeling quite empty about the future of the beautiful game.

What we do know is that Arsenal scored a late equaliser to secure a point against Fulham over the weekend and in the aftermath of that, Gunners manager Mikel Arteta spoke with the media about the result.

ESL: UEFA hit back 0

As you probably know by now, Arsenal are one of the 12 clubs who took the decision to join the European Super League project, named as the founders of the controversially announced new competition.

The decision to do this has already caused worldwide criticism, with practically every entity within the game outside the 12 clubs fiercely criticising the idea. Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is the only Premier League manager to have spoken to the press since, and he was rather coy about his views. He said neither he nor his players weren’t told about it beforehand, and merely insisted that it’s their job to focus on football and the games ahead.

Arsenal confirm participation in European Super League 0

Posted on April 19, 2021 by Harry Kettle

In one of the most seismic moments in football history, last night we had confirmation from 12 clubs across the European landscape that they will be joining the European Super League as part of a breakaway from the Champions League – and now, perhaps also the domestic leagues as well.

There’s a very good chance they could be banned from those competitions as well as international tournaments, and unfortunately, Arsenal are part of this equation.

It’s a desperately sad day for football, as we all know, with releasing the following statement as the world attempts to get its head around what this means for the beautiful game.

Arteta looks head to Fulham showdown 0

Posted on April 18, 2021 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal will lock horns with Fulham today in what we think could prove to be a really intriguing match-up. Fulham are being backed into a corner and while relegation seems likely, it isn’t a guarantee – and that’ll serve as a real challenge for the Gunners. They want to go after the Europa League crown but they need to keep things going in the Premier League too, just in case the UEL doesn’t work out.

Prior to this afternoon’s fixture, Mikel Arteta has spoken with the media about what we can all expect from the game.

On Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang:
We just spoke with him. He’s at home, he’s fine, he’s completely fine at the moment. He had two days in hospital to get the right treatment but he’s feeling good now.

On whether Auba will be back training soon:
We’ll see how he recovers. I think he’ll need a few days to recover from that. He wants to be back as soon as possible, that’s what he said to me.

Past ‘less important’ for Unai Emery ahead of Arsenal reunion 0

Having had great success with Sevilla and a reasonable amount with Paris Saint-Germain as well, Unai Emery was chosen ahead of a number of other candidates (including Mikel Arteta) to succeed the legendary Arsene Wenger as the Arsenal boss in 2018. The Spaniard arrived with fresh ideas and moved to reconstruct the team he had inherited, bringing in the likes of Bernd Leno, Matteo Guendouzi, Lucas Torreira, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Stephan Lichtsteiner straight away.

Arteta reacts to Slavia Prague victory 0

Posted on April 16, 2021 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal are officially into the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa League after a resounding second leg triumph against Slavia Prague last night. It was the kind of win that had most Gunners fans wondering why they can’t put together consistent performances like this every week – but hopefully, this can serve as a bit of a turning point.

After the game Mikel Arteta spoke with the media and not only praised his side’s performance in the 4-0 win, but also turned his attention towards Villarreal and former Arsenal boss Unai Emery in the semis.
