Emery assesses the situation ahead of Arsenal’s match against Liverpool 0

Posted on August 22, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal boss Unai Emery says he will not let their last year’s result against Liverpool get to him and the team.

The two clubs last met in December 2018. Although Ainsley Maitland-Niles provided Arsenal with an initial lead during the eleventh minute of the game, that goal was followed by two of Firmino’s, one of Mane’s, Salah’s penalty goal and finally the completion of Firmino’s hat-trick, which resulted in Arsenal’s devastating 5-1 defeat.

Emery thinks that each season is different and that looking at and comparing this one to that one, two, three or more years ago is not the right thing to do, but rather to be and play at this moment.

In his interview with Arsenal’s website, Mesul Ozil talks about what he finds important in football – and also has some advice for the future football talents. The 30-year-old takes us back to the beginning of his career, when he was playing for the German club Schalke 04.

The German midfielder moved to the youth system of Schalke in 2005 and it was thought that he would do wonders for the club after he had made Schalke’s first team. Nevertheless, he had a falling out with the club and reportedly refused to renew his contract because he thought he was worth more than the annual fee of 1.5 million euros that he was being offered.

Mesut Ozil is thinking about his long-term future plans, according to Washington Post. With the soon 31-year-old slowly but surely inching closer towards the end of his professional career in European football, the outlet claims that Ozil’s agent Erkut Sogut has met up with D.C.United’s officials to discuss the possible move.

The source of the news, reportedly one well-acquainted with the situation, wishes to remain anonymous, however, given the fact that they were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. The move, which Sogut has discussed with D.C. United’s club executives Jason Levien and Sam Porter, might materialise as early as next year. Although United had hoped that the relocation might take place as soon as this winter, the source claims next summer is ‘more realistic.

Last night’s Premiere League opening match against Nescastle may have had a favourable ending for Arsenal, but the club’s midfielder Mesut Ozil and left back Sead Kolasinac were omitted from the game. According to the club, the reasons behind the decision to withdraw the two players from the game were security-related. The news comes two weeks after the two men were involved in an altercation in front of a North London restaurant.

Sometimes you need to forget about what happens on the pitch, because there are more important things to focus your attention on. The world of football is one thing but your life is your life, and a lot of fans need to learn to appreciate that fact. As has been widely reported around the net today, two Arsenal players found themselves in a precarious situation yesterday after they were faced with a potential carjacking situation in London.

The rumour mill is up and running once more, and as we look ahead to the remainder of the summer transfer window, we’re intrigued by all of the possibilities that could come Arsenal’s way. Of course, you could argue that there just isn’t enough time for them to get done what many feel they need to get done in the window, but we trust in Unai Emery and what he’s trying to build at the club.

Congrats, Mesut! 0

We all have players that we hate and sometimes outright despise in the world of football, and that, to an extent, is a bit too silly when you really think about it. Sure, we may not like some of the things they do both on and off the pitch, but at the end of the day they’re just trying to do their best (most of the time) for the badge on the shirt.

Arsenal’s most valuable stars – Part 2 0

Alexandre Lacazette

When Lacazette is playing at the top of his game, he’s one of the best strikers in the Premier League and it really is that simple. The Frenchman gives 110% every time he’s out there, and hopefully, he’s still got enough confidence to take him through a full season in the Premier League.

Mesut Ozil 

There have been too many near misses and too many mistakes to warrant keeping him at the club. Mesut Ozil has been a controversial figure in the last few years, and getting rid of him now would be a massive statement – but in a good way. Arsenal need the best of the best within their ranks, and this man doesn’t fit into that category in 2019.

Arsenal lost the Europa League final to Chelsea in pretty humiliating fashion last night, to the point where a lot of fans probably couldn’t quite believe what they were seeing. Aside from Alex Iwobi’s goal there was nothing to really shout about for the Gunners, in a game where they just kind of collapsed on themselves. It’s disappointing, to say the least, but at this stage we really shouldn’t be all too surprised.

Matteo Guendouzi to sign a bumper deal at Arsenal 0

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal are set to offer young French midfielder Matteo Guendouzi a new contract worth around £75,000 per week, which would double his salary in north London.

The youngster has made a promising start to his Gunners career after a move to the Gunners from homeland club Lorient for a fee of around £7million plus bonuses.

This is a strange move

I have to say I don’t understand why the Gunners are handing him a new contract so soon after joining. The youngster still has three years on his current contract to run, so why double his wages?
