Ozil and Lacazette praise the Arteta effect 0

Posted on February 10, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette have both spoken out in praise of Mikel Arteta and the changes his arrival brought into the Arsenal team.

First of all, it should be pointed out that the results still aren’t great. After the sacking of Unai Emery in November, the team spent a month in the hands of Freddie Ljungberg as an interim solution, until Arteta arrived and took the reins on December 22. Since then, Arsenal have played nine games in all competitions, winning three, drawing five and losing one.

Atletico Madrid looking at Lacazette? 0

According to Sky Sports, Atletico Madrid are considering a swoop for Alexandre Lacazette.

The Spanish club have been without the services of Diego Costa for quite a while now, and the former Chelsea striker is set to be out for further two months. His injury has effectively left head coach Diego Simeone with Alvaro Morata as the only option for the position furthest up the pitch, and he plans to counter the problem by dipping into the transfer market this month.

Lacazette chooses hopeful approach for Arsenal 0

Things haven’t quite gone to plan in the first few months of the campaign for Arsenal, and that much is just kind of obvious. We could spend our time pointing fingers at one another within the squad and determining who is at the root of all the issues, but in reality, it’s a core effort and the club needs to realise that if they are serious about moving forward in a progressive way.

Lacazette & Tierney’s fitness update from Emery 0

Arsenal will be going head to head with Sheffield United on Monday Night Football and one of the biggest questions on the mind of the club’s fans up and down the country will be the team selection. Nobody really knows what Emery is going to do on a week to week basis, and that’s especially true when the club is dealing with some injuries. Today, we’re going to take a quick look at what Emery has said about the fitness of Alexandre Lacazette and Kieran Tierney.

The quotes come from Arsenal.com.

Was Lacazette offered to Zenit? 0

Posted on October 12, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

An interesting story has appeared in the media today (Saturday). Apparently, Dmitry Cheltsov, the agent of Alexandre Lacazette, offered Zenit Saint Petersburg the chance to sign the French forward this summer.

TalkSPORT have relayed an interview Cheltsov gave to Sport Business Gazeta, quoting him in saying, “I offered Alexandre Lacazette to Zenit”.

If this is true, then there are several questions that need to be asked here. First of all – whose idea was this? Is it something Lacazette knew about beforehand? Because if he did, then Arsenal have a potential “player wants out” problem in the near future. If not, how was Cheltsov planning to explain to his client that he was working on a deal to send him to Russia?

New season – old problems? 0

So the North London Derby ended in a draw, with the two teams scoring two goals apiece.

Perhaps it’s too early at the moment, but the immediate feeling is – disappointment.¬† More than anything else, it feels like an opportunity missed, a chance for Arsenal to pull away from their fiercest rivals and closest neighbours gone down the drain. The teams could have been five points apart, a big advantage this early in the season, but as it is, the gap remains only two.

New contracts for Auba & Laca? 0

Posted on August 17, 2019 by Harry Kettle

There’s no way of getting around it: Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both vitally important to the success of Arsenal Football Club. The two men make up one of the deadliest strike partnerships not only in English football, but in all of Europe. With their contracts being set to expire in 2021 and 2022, you can understand why there’s a certain level of trepidation as to whether or not they will be in North London beyond those years.

Now, as reported by Yahoo Sport UK, manager Unai Emery has added some much needed clarity to the situation.

There are some strike partnerships that work and others that don’t which, you know, is kind of the point. You’ve got to get through the bad in order to get to the good, and in the world of football, you just never know how long the ‘bad’ is going to last. When it comes to Arsenal Football Club they’ve certainly been through their fair share of good and bad, but now, they’ve managed to come out on the other side of it with one of the best strike partnerships in the game – in our humble opinion, that is.

Lacazette’s representatives hold discussions on his future 0

Posted on July 03, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

The representatives of Alexandre Lacazette have held discussions with Arsenal’s hierarchy over the possibilities for the future of the Frenchman, according to the Mirror.

Various reports were linking Lacazette with Barcelona for a long time, with the Catalans on the lookout for a suitable successor to the 32-year-old Luis Suarez. However, it now appears that Atletico Madrid have expressed an interest in his services as well. That was, apparently, the reason behind Lacazette’s representatives seeking and holding talks with the club.

Arsenal’s most valuable stars – Part 2 0

Alexandre Lacazette

When Lacazette is playing at the top of his game, he’s one of the best strikers in the Premier League and it really is that simple. The Frenchman gives 110% every time he’s out there, and hopefully, he’s still got enough confidence to take him through a full season in the Premier League.

Mesut Ozil 

There have been too many near misses and too many mistakes to warrant keeping him at the club. Mesut Ozil has been a controversial figure in the last few years, and getting rid of him now would be a massive statement – but in a good way. Arsenal need the best of the best within their ranks, and this man doesn’t fit into that category in 2019.
