A lot of fans, media members and managers alike have a series of different thought processes when it comes to technology in the game. That’s understandable when you consider what a polarising subject it is, because you’ve got two major ways of thinking about it: either you think the game is better off being left alone as it is, or you think there definitely needs to be a change of some kind. There doesn’t really seem to be any ‘inbetween’ phase, kind of like Marmite.

In this weird and wonderful world of the beautiful game, we can often be talking about one thing for a minute or two – before completely switching track to the complete opposite in the blink of an eye. Case in point: many Arsenal fans haven’t been able to stop talking about their frustration regarding their transfer dealings (or lack of), and yet now, many supporters have already started discussing who they’re going to try and bring in during the summer transfer window.
The January transfer window has officially closed for another year, and while that’s been the case for a few days, there’s a reason why we’re bringing this up now. The reason? Because Arsenal fans can’t seem to stop talking about it. While the club may have secured the signing of Denis Suarez from Barcelona, you’d think that the Gunners hadn’t made any significant moves whatsoever based on how the fans have been talking.
It’s not exactly easy to recover from an injury, especially in the realms of professional football. It’s the kind of sport that demands you to be in a ‘go go go’ state of mind, pretty much 24/7. If there’s ever anything that gets in the way of that, like an injury, then it can cause a multitude of problems for fans, media members and the player themselves. That sounds ridiculous, but such is the nature of this game we know and love.
Rob Holding – Holding, when fully fit, has the potential to do some big things in this squad.
Nacho Monreal – Consistently exposed against the bigger sides.
Carl Jenkinson – He’s never really going to be a star at the Emirates in our eyes.
Sead Kolasinac – A placeholder name.
Mohamed Elneny – There’s a reason why so many Arsenal fans wanted to see Elneny’s potential move to Leicester go through.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan – Disappointing is the best word to describe Mkhitaryan’s tenure at the Emirates, but perhaps he still has a surprise or two up his sleeve.
Arsenal are closing in on their return to Europa League action, and as we all know, the pressure is on for them to produce the goods. Whilst there are no guarantees in European football it’s not exactly a secret that they’re one of the favourites to lift the trophy by the time May comes around. Sure, Chelsea are also one of the favourites and history says that can be a murky game for the Gunners, but that isn’t the point.
Patrick Kluivert believes Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would be a good call to replace Luis Suarez at Barcelona, the former striker of the Catalan club revealed, speaking to Sport360.
Kluivert spent six years at Camp Nou, between 1998 and 2004, and during that time he scored 122 goals in 257 games. Suarez has already surpassed his tally and by a wide margin, despite the Uruguay international playing for Barcelona year and a half less so far, with 168 strikes in 227 appearances.
Let’s face it: facing Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United over the course of the last few weeks has been a little bit stressful for the Gunners. The battle for a spot in the top four was, and is going to continue to be, a stressful procedure, and that’s not exactly difficult for fans to realise or pick up on. Still, even after the smoke has cleared, it feels like there’s cause for optimism amongst Arsenal supporters – even in the immediate aftermath of their defeat to the reigning champions.
Arsenal fell to a 3-1 loss against Manchester City at the weekend, and let’s be honest with ourselves, it’s a result we all saw coming. City are on the path towards potential superstardom this season once again, as they continue to chase down Liverpool who are leading the way in the Premier League. The Gunners, on the other hand, are quite clearly going to face quite the battle in order to qualify for the Champions League – via the top four, at least.
The bruising and soft tissue swelling to face and jaw of Laurent Koscielny was initially pretty worrying at the time of the injury, given that it looked like we could have a much more serious problem on our hands. Thankfully he has now returned to full fitness, and it seems like only a matter of time until he forces his way back into the first team. As the club captain that makes sense, although fans are still divided on whether or not they actually want to see him on a regular basis.
