Football didn’t come home – but Arsenal can 0

Posted on July 15, 2021 by Harry Kettle

All England fans watched in horror on Sunday night as yet another penalty shootout heartbreak cost the Three Lions their chance at winning Euro 2020. It was a familiar tale of disappointment and yet, the overriding feeling of pride for the squad is something that we don’t think will ever go away.

Arsenal supporters have had to endure a similar feeling of “so close, yet so far” for quite some time now and this season, we’re pretty sure that isn’t going to fly as Mikel Arteta knows the stakes involved with another big failure.

Arsenal were beaten 2-1 by Scottish side Hibernian in the opening match of the 2021 pre-season at the Easter Road in Edinburgh. Naturally, nothing can be deduced about the way the team will be set up next season so early in the summer, and the hope is merely that manager Mikel Arteta and his staff have taken away their own conclusions from the match to help them choose the right paths going forward.

Arteta reflects on Hibernian loss 0

It’s always nice to start off pre-season in style, but unfortunately for Arsenal, they weren’t quite able to do that at Easter Road on Tuesday evening as they fell to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Scottish Premiership side Hibernian. It’s difficult to take too much away from pre-season with there still being a month to go until the new campaign gets underway, but it’s still a bit of a worry in the eyes of some Gunners fans and rightly so.

After the full time whistle blew, manager Mikel Arteta spoke with about how it all went down.

Arsenal release statement on Bukayo Saka 0

On Sunday night, England came up short in their attempt to win Euro 2020 as they fell to a penalty shootout loss at the hands of Italy. It was a desperately disappointing evening for the Three Lions who, for an hour of the game, seemed to be on their way to lifting their first major trophy since 1966.

Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka was the man who took and missed the decisive fifth penalty and, after receiving some horrendous insults across social media, Arsenal Football Club decided to release the following statement as the attention now shifts back to the start of the new domestic season.

CONFIRMED: Arsenal sign Nuno Tavares 0

Arsenal have completed and confirmed the signing of Nuno Tavares from Benfica on a long-term contract.

Having risen through the ranks of Benfica’s academy, the 21-year-old spent a season with the ‘B’ side at the Portuguese club before earning his place in the first-team squad in 2019. Overall, the young left-back played 41 matches in all competitions for Benfica under his belt, 25 of which came in 2020-21.

The deal which has seen his move to the Emirates sealed, according to Fabrizio Romano, is set to cost Arsenal an initial amount of €8 million, with add-ons devised to take the total amount a bit higher than that.

Arsenal players return for pre-season 0

London Colney is calling and Arsenal’s non-international stars have answered the call.

The players who haven’t been out and about at Copa America or Euro 2020 are finally ready to get back to work for some pre-season training as the club finalises their plans for pre-season friendlies. In some ways it feels like only yesterday they were out there playing in the final game of the campaign but in others, the Euros has allowed us to forget about some of the horrors we had to witness towards the end of last season.

Marseille confirm Guendouzi transfer 0

Olympique Marseille have confirmed that they’ve signed Matteo Guendouzi from Arsenal on a season-long loan with an option to buy. The confirmation from Arsenal is, however, yet to come.

This should be the end of what had become a very troublesome journey for Guendouzi as an Arsenal player. The details of the deal, in terms of the amount the Ligue 1 side will have to pay to secure a permanent deal at the end of the season, haven’t been disclosed yet, but there’s never been any real doubt about the 22-year-old’s football qualities. However, his temper and obvious lack of discipline and self-control could still work against him unless he manages to keep his nose clean throughout 2021-22.

Arsenal reveal summer schedule 0

Posted on July 05, 2021 by Harry Kettle

We all need a bit of balance in our lives and the summer tends to provide us with that as much as it possibly can – but, then again, it’s also fun to get ready and excited for a whole new domestic football season.

Arsenal fans are currently spreading themselves out over a few different international tournaments but pretty soon, that’ll no longer be the case. We’re just over a month away from the Premier League getting underway again and while that may seem scary, it’s also good to know that something resembling normality could be right around the corner.

Saliba to join Marseille on loan 0

Posted on July 03, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

William Saliba is set to join Olympique Marseille on loan for the 2021-22 season, according to David Ornstein of The Athletic.

The young defender arrived to the Emirates in 2019 for €30 million (£27m), and having already had loans with former club Saint-Etienne and OGC Nice, this will be his third temporary spell back in France.

Despite being seen as a bright prospect two years ago, Saliba was deemed not ready for the challenges of the Premier League and has voiced his disappointment at not being given a proper chance at Arsenal. This time around, the original plan was for him to remain at the club and compete for a place in the team, but that plan has changed with Arsenal set to complete the signing of Ben White from Brighton and Hove Albion.

Arsenal up against Juventus in Locatelli race 0

Arsenal and Juventus are set to compete for the signature of Sassuolo’s Manuel Locatelli, according to the Serie A side’s sporting director Giovanni Carnevali. As relayed by Sky Sports, Carnevali said Sassuolo were in talks with the Old Lady, but also that Arsenal are leading the race when it comes to clubs outside Italy.

Sassuolo spoke to Juventus, the only Italian club in the running at the moment, last week, in a meeting between Carnevali and the Turin giants’ own sporting director, Federico Cherubini.
