Arsenal will not break away from the English Premier League, despite showing an interest in joining a European Super League in the near future.

News that discussions over a 16-team Super League were in the pipeline has raised many questions. German football magazine Der Spiegel had claimed that English clubs, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal were all set to sign up for the aforementioned Super League.

Any formation of the reported European Super League would seriously interfere with the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher, who has been known for not holding back on criticism as a Sky Sports pundit, has heaped praise on the results Arsenal achieved so far this season under Unai Emery.

Carragher played an impressive total of 737 games in all competitions for Liverpool, second-most in the Merseyside club’s history, and since his retirement he has been offering his expert views to Sky Sports viewers around the globe. He has often been very hard on Arsenal in his reviews, both of the team and the club, but it’s obvious that this time around he is simply impressed by what he is seeing from the Gunners.

Contrasting views on Arsenal 0

There’s no denying the fact that Arsenal have surprised most people with a bright start to the 2018/19 Premier League season. Not many expected a winning streak such as we’re witnessing at the moment, especially after the two opening defeats. But here they are, two points off the top of the table after eight rounds, defying scepticism to the hilt.

However, sceptics aren’t likely to go away just like that, not without having a good go at dampening the spirits of anybody positively excited.

A very good example of this battle of views are contrasting opinions of two of Sky Sports’ regular contributors, Nick Wright and Paul Merson.

Former Wales and Liverpool striker Craig Bellamy believes that compatriot Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey has already made up his mind about leaving the north London club.

Speaking on Sky Sports the Debate, Bellamy said: “I think they’ve lost him already – I think he’s gone,”

Should Arsenal pursue an interest in Malcom? 0

Posted on July 19, 2018 by David Nugent

According to a report from Sky Sports yesterday, Everton are in advanced talks to sign Bordeaux’s highly-rated young winger Malcom for an initial fee of around £30million-plus add-ons.

There have since been conflicting reports over the Toffees bid for the youngster. Some reports suggest that the Merseysiders are not interested, while others indicate that they could advance the deal with a meeting later today.

Malcom was linked with Arsenal

Last season the Brazilian starlet was linked with a big-money move to Arsenal. Reports France indicates that Bordeaux refused to sell the youngster in January, but told him that he could move this summer if the price is right.

Chelsea consider re-signing Petr Cech 0

Posted on July 18, 2018 by David Nugent

According to Sky Sports, Chelsea are considering re-signing Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech this summer, as current Blues number one Thibaut Courtois looks set for a move to Real Madrid.

The move would seem a strange one, but Cech was only ousted from the Chelsea team due to Courtois being such a promising and highly-rated player.

Cech is a Chelsea hero

The veteran goalkeeper is a true Chelsea hero, having spent 11 years with the Blues before making a move across the capital to join Arsenal in 2015. While he has endured mixed fortunes in north London, Cech enjoyed an incredible career at Stamford Bridge.

Is Richard Keys right about Thierry Henry? 1

Posted on May 07, 2018 by Harry Kettle

For those of you who don’t know who Richard Keys is, he’s the fella who was involved in the sexism scandal with Andy Gray a few years back – and since then, he’s proven himself to be about as uninspiring and out of the loop as you could ever hope to be. Alas, his recent comments on Twitter have caused quite a commotion as he took it upon himself to criticise Arsenal legend Thierry Henry for not being present at Arsene Wenger’s final home game in charge of the club.

Enrique and Allegri the favourites for the Arsenal job 1

Posted on May 07, 2018 by David Nugent

Former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique and current Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri are the favourites to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, according to Sky Sports.

Wenger enjoyed a good send-off in his last home game of the season on Sunday, as the Gunners hammered Burnley. The clubs hierarchy has no doubt made moves behind the scenes to seek a quality replacement for Wenger.

Both winners at the top level

Enrique and Allegri are both proven winners at the top level of football. Barcelona won virtually every club trophy under Enrique, while Juventus have continued to dominate Serie A under Allegri. The Bianconeri also always do well in the Champions League.
