Could Cahill be the answer? 0

Posted on June 29, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

With Arsenal’s need for quality defensive reinforcements so painfully obvious and the transfer budget for this summer so appallingly tight, looking at the “free” section of the market may be the way to go. Every now and then it spouts reasonably good solutions for various problems clubs may be facing when it comes to deficiencies in their teams, and this time it may have presented Arsenal with a very good answer to their problems.

The name that has popped up is Gary Cahill.

What do we think of Lampard? 0

No – this isn’t similar to the Tottenham chant, and in fact, this isn’t a chant at all. We’ve all heard the rumblings about Frank Lampard potentially making the jump back over to Chelsea, but this time as a manager as opposed to as a player. We’ve seen these kinds of moves before in which club legends go back and try to help out their old team (such as Alan Shearer and Ryan Giggs) but it feels like the Blues don’t want this to be quite as short term.

A different Chelsea? 0

One of the biggest rivalries that is currently present at Arsenal Football Club is with Chelsea Football Club. The two London rivals have been battling back and forth for years and years on end, with both getting their hits in as time has gone on. They’ve had varying degrees of success, which is just a fact, but people only really tend to care about the next game as opposed to what has just happened. That’s just the way it is.

Boxing Day – Bournemouth (A)

Heading down to the south coast on Boxing Day isn’t going to be ideal, but we aren’t exactly expecting Bournemouth to do much next season. They’ll probably be down in the relegation mix, whereas Arsenal, by this point, should be right in the hunt for a place in the top four. This should be another win, no questions asked.

How Emirates matches up to PL’s biggest stadiums – Part 2 0

City of Manchester Stadium – 55,017

They call it a tinpot ground and while we’d like to give City fans the benefit of the doubt, we just can’t. It feels a little bit soulless there and bizarrely enough, that was also the case before they were even taken over. Perhaps it was a foreshadowing of some sort.

Anfield – 54,074

It’s not in a great area and the stadium itself isn’t all that impressive, but the atmosphere, especially on European nights, makes you forget about all of that. It’s just a really special place to watch a game of football and the only people you’ll find to disagree with that probably spend their days at Old Trafford or Goodison.

Emery admits that some players need to leave Arsenal 0

As we all now know, Arsenal suffered a 4-1 defeat against Chelsea in the Europa League final on Wednesday night in Baku. After a relatively even first half, Chelsea took control of the game and was difficult to argue with the scoreline in the end.

After the disappointing defeat, Gunners boss Unai Emery is quoted by Sky Sports as saying: “Our idea is to continue to carry on and improve with the young players that have arrived,”

“Maybe some players need to leave but it’s not the moment to speak about that.”

Arsenal fall in Europa League final 0

The expectation last night was that Arsenal would push the pace against Chelsea and really assert their authority on the game early on. All things considered, that doesn’t seem like all too much to ask for, but in the end, it quite clearly was. Chelsea defeated Arsenal 4-1 in Baku, condemning Unai Emery’s men to yet another season of Europa League football in the process. No, we aren’t joking.

Lacazette talks about the importance of key player to Arsenal 0

Posted on May 29, 2019 by David Nugent

Arsenal’s French striker Alexandre Lacazette has been talking about the importance of centre-back Laurent Koscielny in the Gunners run to tonight’s Europa League final against Chelsea.

Respect for his compatriot

Talking about his teammate, Lacazette told Teamtalk: “He worked all summer to come back quickly and when he came back he played four games in a row after a big injury. That is really hard.

“He has helped us all season to be better in defence. We all have big respect for Laurent. A really big respect”.

The gulf in fan support at the Europa League final 0

Posted on May 29, 2019 by Harry Kettle

It’s the day of the UEFA Europa League final, and as such, there should probably be around 60,000 fans from the red and blue side of London descending on the city in which the final will be held. Of course, due to the absolute insanity that is the game being held in Baku, there are only a handful of fans on either side of the fence. We’ve seen videos coming out that showcase the clear gulf in numbers between the two sets of fans, too, with the Gunners coming out on top pretty convincingly.

The Hazard factor 0

Posted on May 28, 2019 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal will face Chelsea in the Europa League final tomorrow, with one team fighting for a place in the Champions League – and the other just fighting for the trophy itself. That kind of dynamic is going to be really interesting to watch unfold from the first minute right up until the very last, because in terms of desire and hunger, you’d have to imagine Arsenal want this more than the Blues do. If nothing else, the ticket sales seem to suggest that (although we can somewhat understand the position of both clubs given the Baku dilemma).
