Can Arsenal now build up some momentum? 0

Posted on September 16, 2018 by David Nugent

Arsenal have now recorded three straight Premier League victories after Saturday’s 2-1 win over Newcastle at St James Park. The win moved the Gunners up to seventh place in the top-flight table.

The victory gives the north London side a chance of building some momentum for the season, especially as they have a favourable run of games coming up.

Nothing like momentum to light up a season

Momentum is a strange tanginess factor for football teams. Sometimes momentum can make teams seasons. They can be on a terrible run of form and then they record a win and suddenly they are on fire.

Arsenal must improve woeful away record 0

A trip to Newcastle for any Premier League team usually presents the prospect of three points. While the Toon Army are a loyal bunch, their team can at times be unpredictable, to say the least.

Arsenal should be heading into an away game like Saturday’s fancying three points. However, the Gunners recent away record suggests that an away win is not a foregone conclusion.

Terrible away record in the Premier League

The team from north London have won two of their last three games on their travels in the top-flight. However, they have also lost eight out of their last ten away games in the Premier League.

Arsenal return to Premier League action this weekend when they go head to head with Newcastle United, in a game that intrigues us in more ways than one. The Gunners are riding a two game win streak whereas the Magpies are in desperate need of a big win to get them out of their current slump. Of course, a lot of the focus for them at the moment is based on what’s happening off the pitch, but that’s another story for another day.

There are plenty of mysteries that have gone unsolved over the course of history, but there’s one that continues to persist: why do Arsenal have such bad defensive issues? People will write stories and tell tales of this phenomenon for years and years to come, and yet, we still find ourselves questioning why that is. The Gunners have failed to keep a clean sheet through the first four games of their Premier League campaign this season, conceding eight goals in the process aka an average of two per game.

Arsenal’s under-21 team opened their Checkatrade Trophy campaign with a 3-0 win over Coventry on Wednesday night. The game was significant as the likes of Joe Willock, Emile Smith-Rowe and Eddie Nketiah scored the goals for the Gunners.

The trio have all been in and around the Gunners senior squad in the last 12 months. In fact, Nketiah burst onto the Arsenal first team last season. The youngster is once again part of the first team squad for this season.

Speaking to Evening Standard, Nacho Monreal has revealed he is happy at Arsenal.

The Spaniard has been linked with a return to his native country. Barcelona are said to be looking at him, along with Liverpool’s Alberto Moreno and Atletico Madrid’s Filipe Luis, as a possible experienced backup option for Jordi Alba while Real Sociedad are also keeping an eye out for any developments.

Ramsey to AC Milan? 0

Posted on September 13, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has been linked with a move to Italian club AC Milan, and ironically enough, it seems as if the club are already trying to use Ivan Gazidis in order to bring him over. The Welshman continues to be embroiled in these contract talks that have everyone talking, kind of in the same way that Jack Wilshere did. As was the case then and as is the case now, we have one very simple viewpoint – just get it over and done with.

Will Gazidis leaving effect Emery? 0

Posted on September 13, 2018 by Harry Kettle

The rumours surrounding Ivan Gazidis continue to plague the headlines for Arsenal fans, as their chief executive appears to be on the verge of packing up and leaving for AC Milan over in Italy. We’ve spoken about how we should just try and ignore the whole thing, but that’s easier said than done for people who are close to the situation. Of course, one man above all others who will find it incredibly difficult to ignore what’s going on is manager Unai Emery, because he’s right in the thick of it.

Barcelona linked with Arsenal full-back 0

No, not the old recycled story of how Barcelona are looking to sign Spanish full-back Hector Bellerin. It is the Spaniard on the other flank of the Gunners defence that is interesting the Catalan giants.

Yes, Nacho Monreal is interesting the Catalan giants according to the Guardian rumour page, which offers no apologies for the lack of source for their information.

Monreal one of Arsenals most consistent performers

Nacho Monreal does not often receive plaudits for his performances for Arsenal. However, over the past few seasons, he has been one of the most consistent players for the North London side.

Monreal set for contract talks 0

Posted on September 12, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal is reportedly set for contract talks with the club, amid speculation over his future. In the last few days it’s been said in the media that Barcelona are willing to discuss the possibility of bringing him to the Nou Camp as a back up defender. As much as that seems like a random move on the face of it, this is certainly not an ‘unknown’ thing that we haven’t seen before.
