As you all know, Arsene Wenger took over as Arsenal manager in 1996 and was in charge of the team for 22 years. In that time, he led the team to three Premier League titles, seven FA Cups, and the 2006 Champions League final. He unearthed some real gems, dressed them in the Arsenal shirt and with his guidance helped them become actual world beaters.
Arsenal’s rise back to the top of English football has turned into more of a collapse than anything else, and that much is just kind of obvious. There seems to be no real plan behind what they’re trying to accomplish, and a lot of that can be placed onto the shoulders of manager Unai Emery. It isn’t all his fault, obviously, because the players need to share some of the blame, but it’s still worth noting that the squad just doesn’t seem to be playing for the man in charge anymore.
Football is a pretty serious game and understandably so, if only because of the insane money involved in it all. Of course, we could go on about the finances associated with the sport for hours and hours on end, but instead, we want to focus on the players. David Luiz and Gabriel Martinelli recently took part in an interview with one another, during which time we were able to learn a lot about the two Brazilians.
It makes sense for them to stick together on their adventure through the weird and wonderful world of playing for Arsenal Football Club, but interestingly enough, Luiz was super keen on getting across how much he admires young Martinelli.
Arsenal are interested in signing Denis Zakaria of Borussia Monchengladbach, according to numerous reports. In fact, Arsenal are just one of the reportedly interested clubs in his signature, along with the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool.
As claimed by Mirror, the Gunners plan to sweeten the Germans up by offering to send Granit Xhaka back to them. Apparently, the now former captain is set to leave the club in January and he might find a return to the club which he left to join Arsenal in 2016 an appealing possibility.
It’s time to swallow our pride and take a look at Arsenal’s last six games, as we attempt to figure out what on earth can be done in order to steady the ship at the Emirates. While there have been bright spots throughout the early months of the season, the constant calls for ‘Emery out’ certainly seem to drown out the positives.
Nobody really seems to fully know or understand what’s going to happen next with the club in the next few weeks and months, so instead of worrying about that as we await the final results of the international break, it’s better to glance at what’s already been and figure out what can be done to rectify some of the lingering (and more obvious) issues.
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.
Lucas Torreira is unhappy about the new role manager Unai Emery has devised for him.
Following his impressive displays for Uruguay at the 2018 World Cup, Torreira was badly wanted by Napoli. Nonetheless, he arrived at the Emirates for just over £26 million, as a specialist defensive midfielder of great ability to read the game and intercept, to stop opposition players, as well as to distribute the ball.
Arsenal’s stars have been out on international duty over the last few days, and they won’t be returning to the Emirates until later in the week. We’re going to take a look at how some of them have fared as we look ahead to the remainder of the games during the break, as well as what could be next for all of the players involved.
Reiss Nelson – Reiss scored the third goal for England U21s in their win over Albania after coming on in the second half of the game.
After the failed loan switch of Barcelona’s Denis Suarez and Arsenal’s decision not to trigger the option to buy that had been inserted in that deal, the Gunners closed the deal on similar terms with Real Madrid and brought in Dani Ceballos for 2019/20. The only difference is, that apparently at the request of the player himself, no such option has been included this time as the midfielder had plans to return to Madrid and fight for a place in the Santiago Bernabeu sun.
Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi is up for the Golden Boy award, which is something that the club should be proud of. He’s on the fast track towards the top of the midfield game in Europe, and he just needs to find a bit more consistency in the starting XI. Regardless of whether or not he can do that, he seems to have a good head on his shoulders, which can only mean good things for his future.
“It shows that I’ve been working hard at Arsenal and have also done well at international level,” Guendouzi told Arsenal Player.
