Arsenal star talks about ‘taking the next step’ in his career 0

Posted on March 23, 2019 by David Nugent

Arsenal central midfielder Granit Xhaka has raised question marks over his future with the club in an interview with a publication in his homeland.

In part of the interview with newspaper Tagblatt, Xhaka is quoted as saying: “I’m very ambitious, I want to take the next step, Arsenal does not have to be the last stop,”

Typical interview on an international break

This is typical of what the foreign press tends to do when players are back in their country on international duty. They tend to take their opportunity to stir the pot, as it were and encourage players to say things they probably would not to the British press.

David Alaba talks about his love of Arsenal 0

Highly-rated Bayern Munich and Austria star David Alaba has been talking about his childhood love of Arsenal. An interview given to German publication Bild has led to speculation linking the 26-year-old with a switch to the Emirates Stadium.

Talked about Spain and England

In his interview with Bild, Alaba said: “I can imagine trying something else but I really feel very comfortable at Bayern.

“Every year there a new challenges and new objectives and the pressure will always be there. I’m happy in Munich but of course, I can imagine seeing something else. Spain, England. In Spain it would be the two big clubs, I guess? Real or Barcelona. Also the big clubs [in England].”

The Dubai positives 0

Wouldn’t it be nice in the middle of the working year to jet off to Dubai for a few days? The answer is yes and if you say otherwise, then we’d be forced to question your sanity. Anyway, that’s the position this Arsenal squad find themselves in as they enjoy a quick break away in the sunshine (well, more like impossible humidity, but still).

A lot of fans have questioned the logic behind this kind of ‘holiday’, even though it isn’t really a holiday, because they want to know why this type of thing is happening outside of pre-season. We can somewhat understand the logic behind that, but we also think there are a few positives here that people aren’t really picking up on – or simply don’t want to pick up on.

The Monreal dilemma 0

It’s never a smart idea to write off players prior to them actually retiring, because let’s face it, we’ve all been proven wrong in one way or another over the years. Whether it be due to a late career resurgence or a veteran player suddenly losing his mojo, you truly never know what is waiting around the next corner. So, with that in mind, we want to try and be a little bit conservative when it comes to discussing the Nacho Monreal dilemma.

International break plans 0

The international break is considered to be a massive, massive pain by a lot of people, and we haven’t really decided what camp we fall into yet. The qualifiers are important but it does kind of bring the momentum of domestic football to a big stop, which then needs to be started up again pretty quickly. With that being said, we do think there are some positives to international football taking over for a little bit – with the primary one being that domestic football fans can actually enjoy a break for once.

Wenger wanted Ancelotti? 0

Posted on March 21, 2019 by Harry Kettle

Pretty soon it’ll be a year since Arsene Wenger left Arsenal, in a move that many fans had seen coming for quite some time now. After a few poor years in charge it felt like a change of pace was needed, and that was pretty much a unanimous decision amongst fans and media members alike. Since then Unai Emery has taken over as the new boss at the Emirates, and while there have certainly been some bumpy moments along the way, we’d say that things have gone pretty well up to this point.

Aubameyang has a good chance of winning the Golden Boot 0

The international break gives us a chance to reflect on what has happened so far this season at Arsenal. The Gunners are enjoying a promising campaign and at the heart of that campaign has been the goals of Gabon international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The former Dortmund striker has been a prolific scorer of goals since his days playing for Saint-Etienne in Ligue One. Since then he has been prolific for both Dortmund and Arsenal.

Denis Suarez laughs at Barca return reports 0

Denis Suarez appeared to laugh off reports about Arsenal wanting to cancel his loan from Barcelona and send him back to Spain.

The rumour about the Gunners being unhappy with the Spaniard originated from some extremely unreliable sources but still managed to pick up pace. The speculations, no doubt, stemmed from the fact that Mesut Ozil has come back into the side and has been playing well, as well as that Alex Iwobi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are preferred options to Suarez for manager Unai Emery.

The remaining Europa League threats 0

Posted on March 20, 2019 by Harry Kettle

The UEFA Europa League is the kind of competition that doesn’t get the respect that it deserves, which is a shame. For those teams that can’t yet break into the UEFA Champions League, it offers up a nice opportunity for them to go far in a competition full of other hungry teams that we otherwise wouldn’t have heard of from around Europe. It’s a constantly evolving process trying to get people to understand why it has some value, and it’s something that fans like us will be working on for many years to come.
