Arteta reflects on big win against Newcastle – part 2 0

Posted on February 17, 2020 by Harry Kettle

On whether Champions League football is possible after City’s ban:
I don’t know. A week ago before we went to Dubai and we drew at Burnley everything looked like it was too far and it’s going to take an incredible run to do it, but today it feels a little bit closer. But it’s going to depend on us and we need to improve as a team and be more consistent over 90 minutes. If we’re able to do that, performances will lead to much better results and if that’s the case, we will be in the mix for the last few games of the season.

Arteta reflects on big win against Newcastle – part 1 0

Posted on February 17, 2020 by Harry Kettle

If Arsenal weren’t able to secure the win over Newcastle then questions almost certainly would’ve been raised about their ability to compete in the race for the European spots – and the legitimacy of Mikel Arteta as manager. Thankfully, after 45 minutes of the Magpies looking competitive, the Gunners were able to pull away in the second half and really put Steve Bruce’s men to the sword.

They wound up winning 4-0 in one of their best successes of the season, and after the game, Arteta spoke with the media to discuss the three points.

Confident Arteta already thinking about summer transfers 0

Arsenal’s season has gone anything but great so far. The Gunners are set smack in the middle of the table, in 10th place with 31 points to their name; 10 points off where they want to be – the top four. On the other hand, a new coach always needs time to make his work ready for valuation. He needs to assess the squad he has inherited, to give every player a chance to earn his place in the big plan. Once he has made up his mind about who stays and who goes, he needs to find suitable additions to bring in the things lacking at the moment.

Dani Ceballos, who joined Arsenal from Real Madrid on a season-long loan last summer, gave an interview to Spanish newspaper Marca recently and spoke mostly about his time with Arsenal.

It hasn’t been going very well for the midfielder in North London. He started seven of the opening 11 Premier League games and was introduced from the bench in the other four, before suffering a torn muscle bundle which kept him out of action for the following nine. He returned to the bench for the win over Manchester United on New Year’s Day, and he hasn’t played since.

Emery questions Arsenal players during his tenure 0

Former Arsenal manager Unai Emery was a divisive figure towards the end of his time in North London, but in the midst of his run at the Emirates, a lot of people were willing to give him the time he needed to succeed. As time went on it became clear that he was struggling to make the necessary impact, and that it was a case of ‘when’ and not ‘if’ he was going to be removed from the position.

Now, during a recent interview with France Football, Emery wasn’t shy about calling out some of his players from during that tenure.

Bellerin opens up about Dubai trip 0

While we may be in the midst of the Premier League’s winter break, a whole lot of teams all across the top flight are still out training and putting in the work – just without a game either last weekend or this weekend.

Arsenal, for example, are currently over in Dubai for a training camp. Some people believe it to be a pretty useful way to keep them occupied between their last match and their next one, whereas others are just kind of happy to be away from the stress of watching the Gunners on a week to week basis.

Ozil and Lacazette praise the Arteta effect 0

Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette have both spoken out in praise of Mikel Arteta and the changes his arrival brought into the Arsenal team.

First of all, it should be pointed out that the results still aren’t great. After the sacking of Unai Emery in November, the team spent a month in the hands of Freddie Ljungberg as an interim solution, until Arteta arrived and took the reins on December 22. Since then, Arsenal have played nine games in all competitions, winning three, drawing five and losing one.

Pablo Mari will be a good fit at Arsenal – Rivaldo 0

Having humiliated quite a few of them in his day, former Brazil star Rivaldo probably knows a thing or two about defenders. And let’s face it, a positive opinion on an Arsenal defender has been a rare occurrence in the last several years.

Nonetheless, the 47-year-old 2002 World Cup winner believes Pablo Mari will be a good fit at Arsenal and won’t have too much trouble getting used to the ways of the Premier League. As he revealed to the Evening Standard, Rivaldo is of the opinion that though he struggled to make an impact in Europe as a Manchester City loanee at Girona, NAC Breda and Deportivo La Coruna, he displayed fine defensive quality playing for Flamengo in Brazil.

A look at Arsenal’s last six results – part 2 0

Arsenal 1-1 Sheffield United

Gabriel Martinelli is going to be a star with this club if he’s given the opportunity to prove himself, and he was able to keep his momentum going with a nice goal to open the scoring against Sheffield United in this one. John Fleck’s equaliser late in the game somewhat spoiled the party for the Gunners, but they knew that they were going up against a really tough side in the form of the Blades. Sure, it was another draw, but that hadn’t quite become a major issue by this point.

Chelsea 2-2 Arsenal

A look at Arsenal’s last six results – part 1 0

Posted on February 06, 2020 by Harry Kettle

If we were to say that it’s been a mixed start to Mikel Arteta’s tenure as Arsenal manager that would probably be an understatement. They haven’t won a whole lot of games and they haven’t lost a whole lot either. They’ve been registering draws like they’re going out of fashion and they’ve been doing so with a team that is capable of producing so much more. Whether or not Arteta is the right man to get the best out of them, of course, remains to be seen, but there’s cause for both hope and pessimism at this stage of the campaign.
