Newcastle lead Holding loan race 0

Posted on September 01, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Newcastle United lead the race to sign Rob Holding on loan from Arsenal, according to David Ornstein of The Athletic.

Holding has been playing very well since head coach Mikel Arteta started giving him a chance in his back-three system due to the injury suffered by Shkodran Mustafi. Pablo Mari and Calum Chambers have also been out for a while. Holding’s contribution was particularly notable in Arsenal’s triumph over Premier League champions Liverpool in the Community Shield, when he repeatedly thwarted the attacking efforts of Sadio Mane.

Arsenal pick up big win against Newcastle 0

The Arsenal faithful knew that they needed a big break in the game against Newcastle United because if they weren’t able to pick up the win, fans would continue to question the legitimacy of Mikel Arteta as the club’s new manager.

The first half didn’t really fill fans with all too much hope or optimism but even with that being the case, there was a real sense that if they made the necessary changes at half time, they could cause Newcastle problems.

Arsenal 4-0 Newcastle: A(nother) tale of two halves 0

Posted on February 17, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal beat Newcastle by 4-0 on Sunday, and there were a few things very hard to miss for anyone who watched the game.

Shkodran Mustafi isn’t good enough to play for this club and that has been proven over and over again. Bukayo Saka is a teenage winger playing as a left-back at the moment. Nicolas Pepe is still somewhat finding his feet in the Premier League. Dani Ceballos just has just come back from a long injury absence. Eddie Nketiah has a lot of talent but the road ahead of him is still long before he becomes a player to regularly challenge for a place in the team. What (arguably) struck an observing eye the most as the lineups were announced was that it was perhaps a mistake for Mikel Arteta to start all these players together.

Injury updates ahead of Newcastle clash 0

Arsenal are set to resume the Premier League season when they take on Newcastle United at the Emirates on Sunday, following the winter break which reportedly did the team a lot of good. Be that as it may, head coach Mikel Arteta spoke to the press ahead of the game and provided some updates on the situation with injured players.

Left-back Kieran Tierney, who hurt his shoulder by falling awkwardly in the West Ham clash back in December, has been ruled out and will likely need a few weeks more. It was confirmed that he was back in training in Dubai, but it was restricted to strictly non-contact work which obviously means his shoulder is still too sensitive for him to play.

Newcastle want Xhaka on loan 0

Newcastle United are interested in taking Granit Xhaka on loan in January help him stay in the Premier League if that is his wish, according to The Telegraph.

The now former Arsenal captain has been linked rather heavily with AC Milan recently, with the Rossoneri apparently keen on signing either him or Lucas Torreira. However, it is believed that the Magpies boss Steve Bruce is also interested and is keeping an eye on the situation. Further more, it has been implied to him that there may be a chance for the Swiss international to actually move to the St. James Park.

Arsenal get the win over Newcastle 0

Posted on August 12, 2019 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal finally opened their Premier League campaign up last night, as they went toe to toe with Newcastle United. The Gunners were expected to get a win over the Magpies given how both teams performed during the summer transfer window, but there was also the fear from many fans that they would drop points in a game that they really should’ve been cruising to victory in. As it turned out, Arsenal did get the win, but it wasn’t all that easy – from the perspective of the scoreline, that is.

Newcastle ready for war? 0

The Premier League season got underway last night, with Liverpool looking about as good as everyone expected them to look against Norwich City. The Canaries put up a bit of a fight in the second half and even managed to score, but in the end, the Reds were just far too powerful for them – and it showed. Of course, that’s got nothing to do with the Gunners, who are set to dive headfirst into EPL action tomorrow afternoon when they travel north to take on Newcastle United.

A look at Arsenal’s 2019/20 Premier League fixture list – Part 1 0

Posted on June 13, 2019 by Harry Kettle

The Premier League fixture list for 2018/19 has been officially released, and that means one thing: it’s time to get excited. The Premier League is considered by many to be the premier form of football entertainment throughout the domestic game, and in truth, it’s kind of difficult to argue with that thought process.

Of course, one of the primary reasons we believe that is because of Arsenal, despite how much they’ve let us down over the course of the last few months. The Gunners will be returning to Premier League action in August, which in itself is a pretty exciting prospect. After reading through every single fixture on the list we’ve decided to pick out some of the most important dates, so that you can remember to skip your own wedding in order to get to Sheffield United away. We’re only partly joking.

How Emirates matches up to PL’s biggest stadiums – Part 2 0

City of Manchester Stadium – 55,017

They call it a tinpot ground and while we’d like to give City fans the benefit of the doubt, we just can’t. It feels a little bit soulless there and bizarrely enough, that was also the case before they were even taken over. Perhaps it was a foreshadowing of some sort.

Anfield – 54,074

It’s not in a great area and the stadium itself isn’t all that impressive, but the atmosphere, especially on European nights, makes you forget about all of that. It’s just a really special place to watch a game of football and the only people you’ll find to disagree with that probably spend their days at Old Trafford or Goodison.

Avoiding April Fool’s 0

Posted on March 19, 2019 by Harry Kettle

Games are played across every single day of the week (most of the time) in the Premier League throughout any given season. Teams often can’t control when or where they are going to play on any given week, and that’s just the way it is. However, sometimes, you’re forced to play on a day that is bound to cause some kind of ridicule one way or another. Case in point: in their next game Arsenal will take on Newcastle United, and it will happen on April 1st, 2019.
