How Emirates matches up to PL’s biggest stadiums – Part 1 0

Posted on June 12, 2019 by Harry Kettle

We may be favouring the Gunners in saying this (we definitely are), but we tend to believe that the Emirates is one of the best stadiums in world football. You can make all the jokes you want about Arsenal as a football club, but when it comes to stadiums, they’re right up there.

We mean that in terms of overall quality, to be perfectly clear, but a lot of folks often look at another statistic: and that statistic is the capacity. Despite the fact that the actual attendance figures don’t often match up to the capacity of the grounds, that’s one of the primary focal points. We tend to think that’s a little bit silly, but alas, here we are.

A look at next season’s Europa League 0

The UEFA Europa League is one of those competitions that never seems to get the respect it deserves, and to be perfectly honest, we can’t see that changing anytime soon. The majority of teams will always strive to enter the Champions League, and even for those who consider that goal to be unrealistic, they’d still prefer to think of that as opposed to considering the possibility of playing on Thursday nights.

Alas, the Europa League is a competition that consistently features some of Europe’s most underrated sides, and it almost always serves up some really entertaining encounters. People just, for some reason, have this negative perception of it, and the sooner fans come to understand the benefits of the competition, the better.

Arsenal’s biggest Premier League wins – Part 2 0

Arsenal 4-2 Tottenham

A magical derby day for Arsenal who were able to overcome losing their lead, overcome the physicality of their rivals, and secure a really important win in the race for the top four. They just seemed to be firing on all cylinders during this game, and it’s hard not to think of this as one of the primary highlights of their entire campaign.

Arsenal’s last eight in review – Part 1 0

The business end of the season is upon us, and as such, we thought it’d be a pretty good idea to analyse how the last few months have gone for Arsenal Football Club. There are just a few games remaining and it’s fair to say that it’s been a rollercoaster ride of a season for the Gunners, which in itself, may be putting things a bit lightly.

They’re in the running for the Europa League crown as well as a place in the top four, so as you can imagine, there’s a lot of tension in the air. Things could either go remarkably or very, very badly between now and the end of the campaign, which, in a lot of ways, is part of the charm of this game.

Arsenal’s visit to Wolves Molineux later tonight is a massive one for the Gunners when it comes to their Champions League qualification hopes this season.

A 3-2 home defeat against Crystal Palace last time out has certainly thrown a spanner in the works of the Gunners top-four challenge. Most people took for granted that that Arsenal would win the clash, including the players it seemed, such was the Gunners stellar home form.

Wolves game now even more vital

The trip to Molineux to face Wolves was always going to be a vital one. The defeat against Palace has just made the clash even more important for Unai Emery’s side. The loss against the Eagles has seen the Gunners slip out of the top-four to fifth-place.

According to the Express, Arsenal are the latest Premier League club to show an interest in Crystal Palace’s highly-rated young right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The 21-year-old has been one of the Eagles most consistent players this season, nailing down a starring role and producing a number of impressive displays for Roy Hodgson’s team. His performances have led to reported interest from the biggest clubs in England.

Youngster in-demand this summer

The reality is that Wan-Bissaka is now one of the most highly-rated young defenders in the Premier League. His performances have led to inevitable interest from the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and now reportedly Arsenal.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal are interested in signing Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera this summer. The Spaniard’s contract with the Red Devils this summer and his future in Manchester is in major doubts.

Herrera has reportedly been in talks over an extension to his deal in Manchester for the last 18 months. However, it now seems that the talks are deadlocked. Herrera is believed to favour staying at the club, but that will not happen unless the two parties come to an agreement.

According to the father and agent of Manchester United star Antonio Valencia, Arsenal are a summer option for the Ecuadorian this summer. Luis Valencia has revealed that his son will definitely leave the Red Devils in the summer when his contract in Manchester expires.

Valencia senior told Ecuadorian El Universo: “He definitely will not continue in Manchester. He wants a change in the air and the club is not going to renew him either. Like everything in life, everything comes to an end.”

Rivals struggles encouraging for Arsenal 0

Arsenal head into the international break in fourth place in the Premier League table. It is a good position for the Gunners to find themselves in at this stage of the season. Unai Emery’s side also has a favourable run in. One other factor that is encouraging is the fact that their nearest rivals are suddenly struggling for form in the Premier League. Chelsea’s 2-0 defeat at Everton yesterday was an unexpected bonus, especially as Maurizio Sarri’s side dominated the first half at Goodison Park.

Reported Arsenal target set to leave United this summer 0

According to the Metro, reported Arsenal target Manchester United’s Eric Bailly is now surplus to requirements at Old Trafford, which means the centre-back could be on the move in the summer.

The Metro reports suggest that the United hierarchy is set to back boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a transfer kitty of around £200million in the summer. With that sort of cash, the Red Devils can afford to bring in a new centre-back with Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld once again linked with a move to the north west.
