Look, we don’t like being negative or disparaging to former players of Arsenal Football Club, because there’s just no point in doing so. Every single man and woman who has pulled on that famous strip has contributed something towards the lineage of this football team, whether it be for good or for bad. Sure, we can debate how effective or impactful they were during their time here, but we should never go as far as to openly criticise them when the issue has been put to rest.
According to the Mirror, Arsenal are among the clubs monitoring the situation with Manchester United’s Eric Bailly.
Bailly signed for United in the summer of 2016 after a successful spell with Spanish side Villareal lasting a year and a half. Before that he played for Espanyol. He has made a total of 60 appearances for the Red Devils so far and had been praised for a while as their best defender.
However, after United’s shaky start to the season, he has fallen down the pecking order having put in a few questionable performances, and manager Jose Mourinho is now favoring the duo of Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof in the absence of Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo. Bailly’s place is currently on the bench.
It’s always somewhat fun to see two of your rivals battling it out because, for the most part, there’s no pressure on your shoulders. They’re busy doing their thing whilst you’re busy doing yours, and all you really have to worry about is what food & drink to order for when you’re watching the game. Case and point: Manchester United took on Tottenham Hotspur last night in an entertaining encounter, and we’re convinced Gunners fans would’ve been watching how things developed very, very closely.
As much as we love how active Unai Emery seems to be in the summer transfer window, there’s also room for caution. While his tactic of throwing things against the wall and seeing what sticks is certainly a fun one, it can also be a little bit dangerous too. If certain transfers don’t come off then he could be left standing around with nothing by the time the season begins, or instead of nothing, one of his main acquisitions could end up being Marouane Fellaini.
The rumour mill continues to run at full steam, with dozens of players being linked with a move to the Emirates. Some seem more realistic than others, but they’re making the headlines all the same – and Unai Emery is a big reason for that. The Spaniard has introduced a level of excitement which we haven’t seen all too often in recent times, and as we look ahead to the future, there are more than a few reasons to be optimistic.
The dust has officially settled on the 2017/18 Premier League season, and for the most part, it was a pretty interesting year. While Manchester City were able to run away with the title at the top of the table, there were plenty of other stories going on throughout the division worth talking about. One of the biggest, which had been brewing for quite some time, was Alexis Sanchez’s move from Arsenal to Manchester United – which sent Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the opposite direction.
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.
We’re back for yet another trip down memory lane, and this one comes from a game that took place three years ago. It was Arsenal vs Manchester United in a clash that was set to provide some clarity on who would end up finishing 3rd in the Premier League, and thankfully for the Gunners, they were able to ‘hold serve’ so to speak by picking up a 1-1 draw against The Red Devils at Old Trafford.
Gareth Southgate has officially revealed his England squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and if you’re an Arsenal fan, there’s some good news and there’s some bad news. The bad news is that Jack Wilshere hasn’t been selected, whereas the good news lies in the fact that Danny Welbeck will be on the plane to Russia.
It’s always tough to admit when you’re in the wrong, and it’s even tougher to admit when you’ve missed an opportunity. As we’ve seen over the last few years, Arsene Wenger isn’t shy when it comes to talking about some of his mistakes from years gone by – and while we appreciate that in regards to Arsenal’s exploits on the pitch, it isn’t really all too helpful when it comes to players that he wishes he would’ve signed.
