Considering the bland pre-season games Arsenal fans normally get, the meeting with Atletico Madrid in Singapore provided a lively and interesting first warm up to the season. The Gunners put out a strong side for Emery’s first big game and we were mostly dominant except for a period after we got our equaliser.
Here is the Arsenal team in their first training session in Singapore. They certainly need to try and keep cool and they have some interesting ways of doing it!
It’s definitely about time we took another look at Unai Emery’s first ever game as manager of Arsenal, he played two completely different sides in each half but they were both impressive!
Watch out for Aubameyang’s 16 minute hat-trick, our youngsters on show in the first half, and the first appearance of Guendouzi in a cameo in the second half…
So it was finally officially announced that Arsenal have signed Sokratis from Dortmund on a five year contract, and we now have his very first interview with the club on video and a written transcript. Arsenal have a new beast!
Everyone seems pretty sure that Arsenal are set to complete the signings of Lucas Torreira and Bernd Leno imminently. The Evening Standard reported last night….
Arsenal are confident of securing the signings of Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira and Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno.
The young Arsenal starlet Eddie Nketiah has scored an amazing amount of goals at every single level he has played in, and after breaking into the Gunners first team this season, the 19 year-old was picked to represent the England U21’s at the Toulon tournament.
It looks like Unai Emery definitely has the ability to attract quality players to Arsenal, as it has been reported in L’Equipe that he has persuaded the teen sensation Yacine Adli to reject a contract offer from PSG and follow the Spaniard to Arsenal, despite reported interest from Bayern Munich and Real Madrid. The 17 year-old is attacking midfielder and was voted Paris Saint-Germain’s outstanding youth prospect last season. On receiving the award, Yacine said: “I don’t think these awards have changed my status,”
So it is one year since Arsene Wenger won his last trophy with Arsenal, beating Champions Chelsea at Wembley against all the odds.
