Arsenal will play host to London rivals Chelsea at the Emirates this evening, as if you didn’t already know, and this is just the type of game that could get our season back on track.
We are in for a fascinating match on Friday night as the Gunners take on a rampant Man United, who have won every game since Ole Gunnar Solksjaer took over at the helm. But Arsenal have turned the Emirates into a fortress in the League since our opening day defeat and the home crowd seems to be having a big effect on the team’s performances so we should also be very confident.
All the signs are pointing to Arsenal still having an interesting transfer window despite the fact that Unai Emery has made it clear that there is no money for outright purchases but loan deals are still a very real possibility.
This season has had ups and downs. Arsenal’s 22-game unbeaten run gave us a sense of optimism within the club. But after the loss to Southampton, our great form wasn’t the most consistent, and we found ourselves lacking certain types of players to reach that type of form again.
Arsenal have had all summer to sort out this loan deal for Denis Suarez from Barcelona, but the negotiations just seem to drag on and on and on. Yesterday we got some good news that Barca had brought in Kevin Prince Boateng to facilitate Suarez’s departure and the Barca boss Ernesto Valverde said that players could now leave. He said in the Mirror: “We are happy with the squad but there are always possibilities for departures for those who maybe do not feature as often.
It certainly didn’t look good when Hector Bellerin was stretchered off in Arsenal’s great win against Chelsea at the weekend, and now the Gunners have official confirmed that the Spaniard is certainly going to miss the rest of this season and maybe even longer. The club announced.….
Admittedly Arsenal’s away form has taken a turn for the worse lately and they have now gone five games without a win, with very awful losses to West Ham, Liverpool and Southampton, plus two draws at Man United and Brighton.
Who Cares???? by Dan Smith
It shows how low the feeling is among Arsenal fans that Sven Mislintat leaving in February should make headlines. Let’s be honest how many of us knew employees behind the scenes 10 years ago? We must be one of the few groups of supporters who worry about this kind of thing. Put it this way, there is so much I would change about how our club is run, who’s in the recruitment team isn’t top of my priorities.
