Why on Earth do the media keep feeding us this rubbish? We have this headline in the Express this morning: Alexis Sanchez ‘will push for move back’ to Gunners as if this is a statement of fact, and to back it up they use the exact same line four times during the article.
Arsenal have certainly suffered a glut of defensive injuries this season, and we are going to be even more stuck for Sundays game at Southampton with Sokratis and Mustafi facing one-game suspensions. We may have Laurent Koscielny returning to the fold after six months out, but we were rocked by the news that Rob Holding will miss the rest of the season.
The old saying ‘there is no smoke without fire’ is not always true, especially when it comes to Arsenal transfer rumours!

There is just one month now until the transfer window opens and we are sure to be inundated with hundreds of silly Arsenal transfer rumours from now on, especially with the possibility of Aaron Ramsey being moved on.

How refreshing to get some clarity from Arsenal this week about the millions we are losing by not being in the Champions League, making a return to the competition the minimum requirement. While I don’t wish the club to lose money it is the only way Stan Kroenke is likely to put his hand in his pocket. For years the American had the dream business model. He employed a manager who could get us in the top 4 without demanding a massive transfer kitty. He would then bank the cash without ever having the ambition for us to try and win the thing.
A month ago there was a whole raft of Arsenal rumours saying that we had already finalised a deal for the MLS star Miguel Almiron, although later the Atlanta president denied it.
