Arsenal full-back set to miss the start of the season 0

Posted on August 04, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the BBC, Arsenal’s Bosnia and Herzegovina full-back Sead Kolasinac will miss the first eight-ten weeks of the Premier League season through injury. The former Schalke star sustained the knee injury in the Gunners International Champions Cup clash with Chelsea on Wednesday.

The estimated timescale would see the Bosnian missed eight top-flight matches, two Europa League games and the third round of the League Cup. The news is a blow to the player and Gunners boss Unai Emery, who now has a dilemma on the left-hand side of his defence.

Arsenal’s new Uruguayan central midfielder Lucas Torreira took part in his first training season with the Gunners on Monday after an extended break due to the World Cup. Pictures from his first training session have since emerged of the midfielder shouting and pointing to his teammates. Unfortunately, for the Gunners, there has been very little shouting and pointing going on during recent seasons.

Could be a leader

It may only be one training session, but Torreira has already shown in his short career so far that he is a feisty character. He is not scared of a challenge and for one so young he seems to have a lot of confidence.

The 2018/19 Premier League season will be getting underway in a matter of weeks, and the final preparations are being made by all twenty teams who will be involved in the top tier of English football this season. Some have more realistic ambitions than others, but whatever the case may be, it’s nice to see that most clubs are heading into the campaign with an aura of confidence as they embark on what will likely be an arduous and very interesting season in the wake of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

While the excitement of the World Cup has been sweeping the nation over the last few weeks, there have still been some interesting developments when it comes to the world of domestic football. Today, we had the release of the Premier League fixtures for the 2018/19 campaign – and if you’re an Arsenal fan, prepare yourself for a baptism of fire on the opening weekend.

Arsenal are still interested in OGC Nice’s Jean-Michael Seri, according to Sky Sports. The man said to be behind the club’s ambition to sign the midfielder is Raul Sanllehi. The current Head of Football Relations at Arsenal once upon a time tried to secure his services for Barcelona.

Seri is, however, just one on the list of names being considered at the moment. As it stands, he would be available for a price of £35million, which is pretty reasonable given the way the football transfer market has been evolving since Paris Saint-Germain signed Neymar from Barcelona for around £200million last summer.

Strongest season ever? 0

While the dust is only just starting to settle in regards to the 2017/18 Premier League season, we’re already extremely invested in seeing what’s going to go down next year – which is hardly a surprise. Sure, the World Cup is going to keep us occupied for a few months, but the consistency and the drama of domestic football is something that is always going to capture our hearts and attention.

The Sterling problem 0

While it’s always easy to get sucked into the media spotlight courtesy of extravagant news stories, we tend to try and stay away from any controversial topics. That’s not because we don’t find them interesting or don’t to delve into them, but more because there’s just no upside. In reality, so many people are commenting on these issues from neutral fans to pundits to media members – and you have to look at yourself and question what value you can add to the situation.

Three results which killed Arsenal’s season 0

Posted on May 23, 2018 by Harry Kettle

The feeling of excitement is back at the Emirates for the first time in what feels like forever following the announcement of Unai Emery as Arsenal’s new manager. The former Sevilla and PSG boss has found great success elsewhere around Europe, and now, it’s time for him to try his hand in the Premier League. Still, while it’s nice to think about what’s to come in the next few months and possibly years, it’s equally as interesting to look back on what could’ve been from the 2017/18 campaign.

Arsenal fans shouldn’t dwell on Oxlade-Chamberlain 0

Posted on April 06, 2018 by Harry Kettle

On Wednesday night Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored an utterly remarkable goal for Liverpool as they ran out 3-0 winners over Premier League leaders Manchester City at Anfield. The goal, and the eventual victory means that the Reds are on the verge of reaching the UEFA Champions League semi-finals where they’ll likely come up against one of Bayern Munich, Barcelona or Real Madrid.

Basel winger and reported Arsenal target Mohamed Elyounoussi has revealed that he wishes to play in the Premier League and that a big English club has been monitoring his progress. That club is believed to be Arsenal.

The Norwegian international is reportedly valued at £18million by his Swiss club, where he has impressed this season. He has scored seven times and also produced an assist this season for Basel in all competitions.

One of those goals came against Premier League leaders Manchester City in a 2-1 Champions League win at the Etihad Stadium.
