Newcastle want Joe Willock permanently 0

Posted on May 04, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Newcastle United are keen on signing Joe Willock, currently on loan at St. James’ Park, permanently this summer, according to a report jointly done by  Chris Waugh and James McNicholas for The Athletic.

The 21-year-old joined the Magpies for the second half of the season with the obvious aim of securing more game-time, a crucial aspect for the development of any young player. So far, he’s made 10 appearances in a black-and-white shirt, all in the Premier League, scoring four vital goals for Steve Bruce’s team.

Arsenal fans were expecting a tough game against Newcastle United yesterday but in the end, they actually wound up looking pretty comfortable in a convincing 2-0 win over the Magpies. They didn’t exactly look 100% back to their best, and they still need to work on a lot of issues ahead of their Europa League semi-final second leg against Villarreal, but at least they got a win on the board.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta spoke with the media after the game as the hope for an unlikely top six move goes on.

Arsenal were considered to be the favourites to beat Villarreal over two legs and progress to the final of the UEFA Europa League but now, that’s no longer the case. The Gunners were beaten 2-1 by the Spaniards last night in the first leg and, in all honestly, they’re probably lucky that it didn’t get worse than that for them.

Mikel Arteta has a lot to answer for in the eyes of supporters and in his post-match press conference, he answered all of those concerns as the pressure continues to mount.

Arsenal draw up Arteta replacement list – rumours 0

The fact that Arsenal’s season cannot be described as successful is pretty obvious, and with that in mind, the rumours about the club considering parting ways with manager Mikel Arteta, though noted, haven’t been able to gather pace so far.

However, it seems some ‘outlets’ feel it’s time they had another go. The rumour comes from Italy this time, and it involves not only Arsenal, but fellow Europa League semifinalists AS Roma. Apparently, the Gunners are supposed to have made a list of potential replacements for Arteta, and one of the names there is Roma boss Paulo Fonseca. That is according to TuttoMercatoWeb, who also claim the club hierarchy are not happy with Arteta’s work and the lack of progress under his command. They also say that at this point, only lifting the Europa League trophy could save Arteta his job.

Arsenal may not be destined for great things in the Premier League this season but the jury is still very much out with regards to the Europa League. They’re at the semi final stage of the competition and tonight, they face an exciting first leg encounter against Villarreal.

The winner will meet Manchester United or Roma in the final but for the time being, the focus needs to be on one thing and one thing only: building a solid lead heading into the second leg.

Prior to tonight’s festivities, Gunners manager Mikel Arteta has spoken to the media about the game.

Tomorrow night, Arsenal will venture overseas to take on Villarreal in the first leg of their highly anticipated Europa League semi-final. This competition marks a great opportunity for the Gunners to get back into the Champions League and while it still feels like a long shot, they’re only three games away from making that a reality.

One piece of good news that’s been announced came via Mikel Aretata in the lead up to the first leg. The boss has confirmed that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Kieran Tierney and Alexandre Lacazette are all in contention to play which, in itself, is the kind of news that’ll give fans a huge boost of excitement.

Summer sales expected to fund incoming transfers 0

Arsenal remain in the dark as to the size of the funds to be made available for incoming transfers this summer, and much of it is expected to depend on whether the Gunners manage to secure Champions League football for next season. The chances of that task being accomplished through Premier League placement are practically non-existent, even if the possibility isn’t yet mathematically ruled out. At this point, the likeliest route towards UEFA’s elite club competition is through winning the Europa League, where Arsenal will be facing Villarreal in Spain in the semifinals, which will see the first leg being played this Thursday.

Playing Everton was always going to be tricky but last night, Arsenal turned in one of their worst performances on the season in a desperately disappointing 1-0 loss to the Toffees. Mikel Arteta, who was going up against his former side, would’ve been hoping to see something resembling a strong and confident performance – but what we got was the direct opposite of that.

In the aftermath of the defeat that leaves Arsenal needing to win the Europa League, Arteta spoke with the media about what is becoming an all too familiar trend – a poor night at the Emirates.

Arsenal fans have been through an awful lot over the course of the last few months and especially in the last few days – but that isn’t going to slow down anytime soon. The trend, in fact, will continue right on through until the end of the campaign.

The next step on that journey takes the Gunners back to the Emirates as they prepare to host Everton. Both sides are on the outside looking in at the top six with manager Mikel Arteta speaking to the media about how important this encounter really is.

Arteta reveals personal apology from club owners over ESL fiasco 0

Posted on April 22, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has revealed that he received a personal apology from the owners of the club over the events concerning the failed attempt at creating a breakaway ‘European Super League’.

The owners of the so-called ‘top six’ Premier League clubs – Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea – had agreed on the idea under a considerable veil of secrecy, with managers and players later revealing they knew nothing, or very little, about the things that went on behind the scenes. Most of the players found out about it after official announcements of the project were put out on Sunday.
