Iwobi reveals why he left Arsenal for Everton 0

Posted on August 14, 2019 by Harry Kettle

Alex Iwobi has left Arsenal Football Club after departing on Deadline Day. The Gunners were able to get a pretty nice fee for the Nigerian international, who wound up joining fellow Premier League side Everton in an exceptionally random last minute deal. Interestingly enough this deal seems to have split the Gunners fanbase down the middle, with some agreeing with it and others feeling as if it was a poor decision from the club.

As reported by Evening Standard, the man himself had the following comments to make as he begins this brand new chapter of his career with the Toffees on Merseyside.

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.

Everton the favourites to sign Danny Welbeck 0

According to the Express, Everton are the favourites to sign Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck this summer. The report claims that the Merseysider’s are prepared to hand the 28-year-old a contract worth around £100,000 per-week this summer.

Welbeck is of course out of contract with the Gunners this summer and will leave the club on a free transfer.

Endured an injury-hit stint at Arsenal

Danny Welbeck’s Arsenal career has been injury plagued. The England international has spent five years with the north London club but has never really managed to nail down a regular starting spot at the club.

Arsenal’s biggest Premier League wins – Part 1 0

Posted on May 07, 2019 by Harry Kettle

We’re getting closer and closer to the end of the Premier League season, and for Arsenal, the success of their campaign really does depend on the Europa League now. There’s still a chance they could leapfrog rivals Tottenham Hotspur and break into the top four, but realistically speaking that doesn’t seem like it’s going to happen.

The last few weeks have been pretty desperate for the club as they’ve been unable to make any major dent in the aforementioned battle for a Champions League spot. The rest of the sides around them have also been slipping up which has given them more opportunities than they probably deserved, but given how ‘easy’ their run-in seemed, being in this position heading into the final day just seems utterly unacceptable.

Would Andre Gomes be a good signing for Arsenal? 0

According to ESPN, Arsenal are interested in signing Barcelona playmaker Andre Gomes this summer. The Portuguese international has revived his career on-loan at Everton this season. The Toffees are confident of sealing a permanent deal for the midfielder.

However, both Arsenal and are also Tottenham are also reportedly monitoring Gomes situation. Barcelona are believed to be looking for around £26million for the talented star. Gunners head coach Unai Emery and director of football operations Raul Sanllehi are reported to be big fans of the Portuguese midfielder.

Everton 1-0 Arsenal

The disclaimer here is that Everton have been playing some really nice stuff in recent weeks, but at the same time, this isn’t a game Arsenal should’ve been losing – not by a long shot. They were just thoroughly outplayed from an attacking perspective and while they may have had the majority of the possession, they just weren’t able to do anything with it.

Arsenal 2-0 Napoli

Thursday nights game is must-win for Arsenal 0

Posted on April 09, 2019 by David Nugent

Arsenal have little time to dwell on yet another poor away display last time out, which saw the Gunners beaten comfortably 1-0 by Everton at Goodison Park. Instead, the team from north London will turn their attention to Thursday night’s home game against Napoli.

The Europa League quarter-final first leg clash is a must-win one for Unai Emery’s side, mainly due to their inability to win away from home, even against the likes of BATE Borisov.

One of the problems with supporting Arsenal is that you just never know what a bad result is going to be lurking around the next corner. You can say the same thing about a lot of teams, which we understand, but it’s just a little bit different when it comes to the Gunners. They could be on a fantastic run of form, to the point where they’re considered to be the favourites in whatever ‘race’ they’re involved in, only for things to fall apart in the blink of an eye.

Frustration control important – Emery 0

Posted on April 08, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal succumbed to defeat at the hands of Everton on Sunday as the Toffees took the lead in the 10th minute through their former captain Phil Jagielka, who had only come into the starting XI at the last possible moment to fill in for the ill Michael Keane. The Merseysiders then held out for the rest of the game and condemned Arsenal to remain in fourth place, a point behind bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

It was a frustrating affair altogether. Everton’s winning goal came after a foul throw-in as Lucas Digne clearly stepped over the touchline while taking it, but there’s no hiding from the fact that the throw-in was well designed by Everton and poorly defended by Arsenal.

Arsenal’s terrible away form continues at Everton 0

Arsenal’s terrible away form in the Premier League continued on Sunday, as the Gunners went down to a 1-0 defeat at Everton’s Goodison Park. In truth, Unai Emery’s side were fortunate not to suffer a heavy defeat, as the home side were simply better all over the pitch.

Arsenal easily beat at Goodison Park

The home side seemed to simply have more determination and desire to win. When they had the ball, they made better use of it too. Only a lack of ruthlessness in front of goal prevented a bigger victory for Marco Silva’s team.
