Deals for Ceballos and Saliba “close” 0

Posted on July 17, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

As reported by Sky Sports, Arsenal are close to agreeing a deal with Real Madrid to sign Dani Ceballos on loan.

Arsenal’s fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur have expressed an interest in taking the young midfielder to north London on a permanent basis, but apparently, a temporary move to Arsenal suits both Real and the player better. Los Blancos are keen on keeping the prospect of Ceballos playing for them again in the future alive following his excellent displays at the U-21 European Championship this year, while Ceballos feels he would have more first-team opportunities at the Emirates than at Spurs, and he also feels he may yet have a future at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Tottenham (H)

Winning the first North London derby of the season would be a huge sign of intent from this Arsenal team, to the point where we’re pretty much convinced that it would set them on their way towards the top four.

Watford (A)

They aren’t intimidating, to be perfectly honest, and we don’t consider last season to be an indication of what they’re going to do in the next. They fall short of the top six, and even seven when you include Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Arsenal to battle Spurs for Thomas Strakosha 0

Posted on June 15, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal are reportedly preparing to battle it out with fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur for the services of goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha of Lazio.

According to Italian outlet Il Messaggero, the pair of north London clubs have been informed that the Serie A side would cost no less than €50 million. That may seem a little steep given the reports of Arsenal’s rather limited transfer funds for this summer, but if the Gunners aim to sign any quality option to challenge Bernd Leno for the No. 1 spot, they will have to come to terms with the prices on the current market.

Boxing Day – Bournemouth (A)

Heading down to the south coast on Boxing Day isn’t going to be ideal, but we aren’t exactly expecting Bournemouth to do much next season. They’ll probably be down in the relegation mix, whereas Arsenal, by this point, should be right in the hunt for a place in the top four. This should be another win, no questions asked.

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 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.

This isn’t a time to celebrate 0

Last night, Tottenham Hotspur played in the UEFA Champions League final against Liverpool. Playing in a game of this magnitude is something that Arsenal have also done before, 13 years ago in Paris. On that night the Gunners lost to Barcelona in a pretty heartbreaking way, and 13 years on, Spurs also experienced what it feels like to lose on the big stage as they were beaten 2-0 in Madrid by Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Rivalries in football are a funny thing, and when we say funny, they actually aren’t funny at all. In many ways they’re pretty poisonous, actually, as fans tend to invest too much into them. From abusing opposition fans to getting far too invested in their results as opposed to your own, there are a certain ‘variety’ of incidents and possibilities that come with being engaged in a football rivalry. One of the big ones is having to sit back and take it when your rivals are far more successful than you are.

It’s fine to admit it, Arsenal fans 0

Arsenal fans out there tend to get distracted by the teams around them more so than they’d probably like to admit. The same anecdote goes for quite a lot of clubs out there, especially in the European game, but the Gunners have been drawn into a series of ‘battle of wits’ with rival teams in the last few decades. Above all of them, of course, the rivalry with North London neighbours Tottenham Hotspur stands out above the rest.

Pochettino saved Torreira from further punishment 0

You’ve probably seen Lucas Torreira pick up a red card at the very end of the North-London Derby on Saturday for a foul on Tottenham Hotspur’s Danny Rose. The decision from referee Anthony Taylor was, to put it mildly, ridiculous. The Uruguayan did commit a foul, and it was somewhat reckless from him, and it probably deserved a card, but certainly not a red one. There was no intention, no malice in what he did.

Torreira now faces a three-match ban because of Taylor doing a poor job, and he’s set to miss not only the crucial crunch clash with Manchester United next weekend, but also games against Newcastle and Everton.
