Bayern manipulated behind the scenes – Wenger on Arsenal losing Gnabry 0

Posted on October 09, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has opened up on the way the club lost the services of Serge Gnabry, who has gone on to shine for Bayern Munich.

Gnabry made his professional debut for Arsenal at the age of 17, back in 2012 when he entered a League Cup clash against Coventry City in the 72nd minute in the place of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and he went on to play a total of 18 games for the club before leaving on loan to West Bromwich Albion in 2015. The temporary move was cancelled and he returned to the Emirates the following winter due to not getting enough game-time with the Baggies. Wenger says he tried to “rebuild” him following that “very bad experience” which had destroyed his confidence.

Courtesy of Arsenal.com, the full list of Gunners stars that are going to be heading out in international duty has been revealed. While many of us will spend the next two weeks praying that nobody gets injured and everyone returns with a full bill of health, we all know there’s a chance that won’t happen.

Alas, all we can do for now is praise them and hope that they put in the kind of performance that will give them confidence heading back into Premier League and Europa League action.

Pepe needs time at Arsenal – Wenger 0

Posted on October 08, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

Nicolas Pepe should be given time to adapt to playing for Arsenal, according to former Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.

After failing to land Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace this summer with two bids reportedly rejected for the Ivorian, the club moved on and signed Pepe from Lille for £72 million. Since the start of the season, the 24-year-old has played in every competitive game apart from the 5-0 thrashing of Nottingham Forrest in the Carabao Cup. His total at the moment stands at one goal and three assists from 10 games, eight in the Premier League (six starts), and two in the Europa League.

It’s time for yet another international break and while a lot of fans are going to moan and groan about that, there are pros as well as cons that come with taking some time off. Today, we’re going to take a look at both sides of the argument and find out which side of the fence the majority of Gunners supporters fall on.

From Europe to North America and beyond, every corner of the globe will continue their push towards the next big tournament, whether it be the European Championships, Copa America, AFCON or, in some instances, the World Cup itself.

Chambers is ready to learn from David Luiz 0

Arsenal defender Calum Chambers put in a strong showing during the win against Bournemouth, to the point where many Gunners fans are calling him the club’s saviour from a defensive standpoint. As reported by Arsenal.com, the man himself is excited and ready to learn from one of his senior teammates at the back – David Luiz.

“David has been brilliant, he has come in and no-one in the club has a bad word to say about him,” he said. “He is one of the nicest guys I have met, he talks to you, gives you advice and makes everyone feel like he is giving you his undivided attention.

Vela continues to live his best life 0

Arsenal’s attacking prowess this season is one of the most exciting aspects of the entire squad, and there’s no point in hiding that fact – because it’s worth bragging about and getting excited over. Still, even with that being the case, it’s somewhat odd to see former Gunners forwards doing great things away from the club, and it makes you wonder about what could’ve been.

Serge Gnabry is a really obvious example, with his abilities being highlighted during his four goal showing against Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League for Bayern Munich. However, on a weekend when Spurs, Manchester City and Manchester United all lost games that they probably should’ve won, we still feel like our attention outside of the club is being drawn towards North America as opposed to anything else.

Another weekend of Premier League action is in the books, and with eight games gone, we can start to take a look at what the realistic goals are going to be for every single team in the top flight this season. Thankfully for Arsenal it appears as if they’re going to be challenging for the top four once again, but their position in the table is kind of a default one due to how badly the usual top six are performing at this moment in time.

With eight rounds in this season’s Premier League roaster done and dusted, Arsenal have broken into third place by beating Bournemouth 1-0 at the Emirates, courtesy of an early David Luiz header. Of course, the Gunners needed that bit of luck which, surprisingly enough, did come their way this time.

Emery looks ahead to Bournemouth clash 0

Posted on October 06, 2019 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal go head to head with Bournemouth later on today, but ahead of the game itself, Gunners boss Unai Emery took the time to speak to the media as noted by Arsenal.com.

On injuries from the Standard Liege clash:
Good afternoon, it’s a very short time to know how we are going to be with the players on Sunday. Tomorrow’s training is going to be very important because some players who played yesterday will be tired. But above all, at the beginning it’s only Lacazette who is continuing away from the team. I am waiting on the other players to be ready.

Arsenal will return to action this weekend as they prepare to host Bournemouth in the Premier League at the Emirates. They’re coming off the back of a comprehensive win against Standard Liege in the Europa League earlier this week, with many fans and pundits believing that if Unai Emery can resolve his tactical and defensive issues, they’ll be able to go on a little bit of a run in all competitions.
