Arsenal’s rise back to the top of English football has turned into more of a collapse than anything else, and that much is just kind of obvious. There seems to be no real plan behind what they’re trying to accomplish, and a lot of that can be placed onto the shoulders of manager Unai Emery. It isn’t all his fault, obviously, because the players need to share some of the blame, but it’s still worth noting that the squad just doesn’t seem to be playing for the man in charge anymore.

Football is a pretty serious game and understandably so, if only because of the insane money involved in it all. Of course, we could go on about the finances associated with the sport for hours and hours on end, but instead, we want to focus on the players. David Luiz and Gabriel Martinelli recently took part in an interview with one another, during which time we were able to learn a lot about the two Brazilians.
It makes sense for them to stick together on their adventure through the weird and wonderful world of playing for Arsenal Football Club, but interestingly enough, Luiz was super keen on getting across how much he admires young Martinelli.
Things haven’t quite gone to plan in the first few months of the campaign for Arsenal, and that much is just kind of obvious. We could spend our time pointing fingers at one another within the squad and determining who is at the root of all the issues, but in reality, it’s a core effort and the club needs to realise that if they are serious about moving forward in a progressive way.
Lucas Torreira is unhappy about the new role manager Unai Emery has devised for him.
Following his impressive displays for Uruguay at the 2018 World Cup, Torreira was badly wanted by Napoli. Nonetheless, he arrived at the Emirates for just over £26 million, as a specialist defensive midfielder of great ability to read the game and intercept, to stop opposition players, as well as to distribute the ball.
Arsenal Women manager Joe Montemurro has taken the time to reflect on the club’s historic derby day triumph over Tottenham as they continue to reign supreme as one of English football’s great pioneers for the women’s game.
On the derby win:
I thought we were a little sloppy in the first half with our positioning and there were a couple of incidents that allowed them to gain a bit of confidence on the break. Our second-half performance was very good, however, because we regained our shape and took a couple of our chances.
Arsenal’s stars have been out on international duty over the last few days, and they won’t be returning to the Emirates until later in the week. We’re going to take a look at how some of them have fared as we look ahead to the remainder of the games during the break, as well as what could be next for all of the players involved.
Reiss Nelson – Reiss scored the third goal for England U21s in their win over Albania after coming on in the second half of the game.
Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi is up for the Golden Boy award, which is something that the club should be proud of. He’s on the fast track towards the top of the midfield game in Europe, and he just needs to find a bit more consistency in the starting XI. Regardless of whether or not he can do that, he seems to have a good head on his shoulders, which can only mean good things for his future.
“It shows that I’ve been working hard at Arsenal and have also done well at international level,” Guendouzi told Arsenal Player.
Last night marked England’s 1000th international as a senior team and that, in itself, is an achievement. Thankfully the even bigger achievement was qualifying for UEFA Euro 2020, and they did so in style with an utterly ruthless display of attacking force in the form of a 7-0 battering against Montenegro. The punishment started early as England got into a rhythm within a matter of minutes, and by half time, the Three Lions managed to stick five past their opposition – and they only needed a point to get themselves over the finish line in the first place.
There have been plenty of divisive figures within Arsenal Football Club over the years, and sometimes there have been too many to count. As the years go by, however, those grudges and divisive issues start to fall away – and in place of them we have new villains and issues, which is kind of a sickening indication of what life itself is like in 2019. But, anyway, moving on.
Today we’re going to run down the things we think are great and the things we think aren’t so great when it comes to good old Unai Emery. We say good old, but of course, it’s well known that Emery has been struggling to really find his footing within the realms of the Emirates over the last few months and beyond.
Courtesy of Arsenal.com, we can now take a deep dive into the international break and all of the fun that comes with it. A multitude of stars within the club are currently littered around the world competing for their respective nations, and today, we’re taking a look at all of them.
“Lucas Torreira has been named in the Uruguay squad for their international friendlies against Hungary in Budapest on Friday, November 15 and Argentina in Tel Aviv on Monday, November 18.
Emi Martinez will be hoping to feature for Argentina on that day, and also in their international friendly against Brazil in Riyadh on Friday, November 15.
