After Arsenal reached the final of the FA Cup with a victory over Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City at the Emirates, there is some fascinating transfer gossip that has emerged in regards to the Gunners. According to a report from the Daily Star, Arsenal are preparing a £65 million bid for the Everton striker Romelu Lukaku as the club prepares a massive summer overhaul ahead of next season.
Spuds bigger than Arsenal? Are you having a laugh? by Geoff Wood
The last time Tottenham won the FA Cup was in 1991, since then we have won it 7 times. The last time they won the league was 1961, since then we have won it 5 times. The last time they finished above us was 1995 which is 21 years ago.
If you had asked me just a few weeks ago about Arsenal and the team’s chances of winning a trophy and actually moving up in the football world under Arsene Wenger then my answer would have been a definite negative, but I have to say that my position on the prof has started to soften.
While things have taken on a much more rosy hue for Arsenal fans in the last week, the Gunners and Arsene Wenger are not out of the woods yet by any means, and unless the players keep up the sort of intensity that we saw from them yesterday in the hard fought FA cup semi-final win over Man City, while Arsenal could also do with rediscovering some of the fluent and free flowing football that we saw in the first half of the current season.
Three CB Defensive Pattern for New Season by Nicholas Oyoo
With the weight of the world on the team’s shoulders, Arsenal managed to grab an emphatic 2-1 win over Manchester City in the semi-final of the FA Cup. As expected, the Gunners boss Arsene Wenger stuck with new back-three system and the move once again paid dividends as the Arsenal players dug deep and produced a victory, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain once again producing a man of the match performance in his new wing-back role.
Now that Arsenal have booked a place in the FA cup final once again, with the showpiece match against Antonio Conte and his Chelsea team set to take part after the final Premier League games of the season have all been played, there is a good chance that us Gooners will have to wait for another month or so to find out whether Arsene Wenger is going to be the Arsenal manager again next season.
Arsene Wenger has had way more than his fair share of injury problems to Arsenal players this season, and almost every year, to cope with so I am not going to waste any sympathy on Leicester City or their captain and defensive rock after Sky Sports reported that Wes Morgan was back in the treatment room and set to miss the trip to north London to face Arsenal this week.
