Ozil is gone – who gets his shirt? 0

Posted on January 18, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Seems a bit sad, doesn’t it?

Mesut Ozil spent seven and a half years at Arsenal. He wore the No. 11 shirt for five, until the club parted ways with Jack Wilshere on a permanent basis in 2018. Then Ozil took the No. 10.

Ozil and Arsenal have reached an agreement to have the contract binding the player to the club until the end of this season terminated with immediate effect, as reported by multiple sources, and the former Germany international is expected to be confirmed as a Fenerbahce player any day now. Plenty of people have been debating his legacy at the club and whether he’ll be missed, but some of his now former teammates have already begun discussing who gets the No.10 shirt.

Arsenal’s team news heading into Newcastle game 0

Posted on January 18, 2021 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal fans will be feeling confident heading into the game against Newcastle United, if only because they were able to beat them just a matter of days ago in the FA Cup. Still, there are plenty of questions that have been left unanswered so far this season, and it’ll be interesting to see whether or not the Gunners can handle the pressure of actually being expected to comfortably win a game of football.

Before all of the festivities kick off later at the Emirates, has provided fans with an idea of what to expect regarding the team news.

Enjoy the game, Gunners fans! 0

We may sound like a bit of a broken record here, but there are plenty of things going on in the world right now that are so much bigger than football. However, you could also make the argument that the distraction of having the football on right now is exactly what we need as a country. Or, at the very least, as football fans.

Instead of taking in too much of the news, which is a fairly depressing place at this moment in time, try and sit back and enjoy the Arsenal game against Newcastle. We need to focus our minds on something different, and maybe a Gunners win can get us back on track.

Arteta looks ahead to Newcastle clash 0

Posted on January 16, 2021 by Harry Kettle

It’s out with the old and in with the new as this incredibly busy Premier League season continues for Arsenal Football Club. In the wake of their disappointing 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace earlier this week, the Gunners will be hoping that they can immediately bounce back with a victory over Newcastle United.

They know that they’ve beaten the Magpies recently in the FA Cup and they’ll attempt to do so again on Monday Night Football, but during his pre-match press conference, manager Mikel Arteta made it crystal clear that this isn’t going to be as easy as many Arsenal fans want it to be.

Balogun race intensifies 0

Posted on January 15, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

The race for the signature of Folarin Balogun has intensified greatly in the last couple of days, as reported by The Guardian. The 19-year-old striker will be out of contract at the end of the season and he is already free to talk to clubs outside England to agree a summer move.

Apparently, no less than 15 clubs, both in the UK and abroad, have expressed an interest in Balogun’s talents, and the list has now been shortened to three serious contenders, which the report does not name. One thing it does say is that Arsenal haven’t given up on getting the youngster to recommit and stay put, and it seems the player himself hasn’t ruled out the option either – it’s a real possibility.

Arteta reacts to disappointing Crystal Palace draw 0

Even after a nice string of victories, one slip-up is all it takes for Arsenal fans to get wound up again. Last night, the Gunners were unable to capitalise on a golden opportunity to make a statement at the Emirates as they fell to a disappointing 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace. In many ways, you could make the argument that they even deserved to lose given how disappointing their play was at times.

After the game, manager Mikel Arteta spoke candidly about why his side wasn’t able to come away with the win.

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace – Preview 0

Posted on January 14, 2021 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal are on the best run of form we’ve seen from them since winning the FA Cup last year, and Mikel Arteta will be well aware of how badly they need to take advantage of that. Whether or not it happens is a different matter altogether but over the course of the next few days, it certainly feels like the tide could officially turn if the Gunners can make a real statement against Crystal Palace.

Today, we’re going to give our thoughts on what we believe they can accomplish in what is bound to be a vital game for the club.

Arsenal monitoring Shakhtar winger 0

Posted on January 13, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal are monitoring Shakhtar Donetsk’s Manor Solomon as they consider a move for his services in the summer, according to The Guardian.

Solomon is a winger, 21, and his excellent performances in the Champions League this season, as well as the previous one, have been attracting attention across Europe. In all competitions, he has played 17 games this term so far, scoring five goals and adding an assist to his name as well. He plays mostly on the left, though he’s fully capable of performing on the right, as well as through the middle as a number 10 – a highly talented player who uses both feet in equal measure.

Arsenal have been on a solid run of form as of late but if they’re serious about challenging for a place in the top four, they need to keep winning – because even the smallest slip-up in this incredibly unpredictable Premier League campaign could cost them in a big way. Their next test will come in the form of another London derby, this time at the Emirates against Crystal Palace.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta recently spoke with the media and previewed his side’s upcoming encounter against the Eagles.
