Arsenal offered experienced goal-scorer until January?

Arsenal are said to have been offered MLS striker Jermain Defoe on a temporary deal until January, as the former Spurs striker seeks a return to the Premier League, according to The Telegraph.

Defoe is said to be in advanced talks with previous boss Harry Redknapp´s QPR, but the player has asked his agent to sound out a move to Arsenal as his preferred destination.

JD moved to Toronto FC in January of this year, and scored 11 goals in his 16 appearances for the club. It is thought that he has not settled into the Canadian lifestyle as well as he had hoped, and is keen on a return to England.

Arsenal pull-the-plug on Remy battle – Wenger’s ignorance prevails

Arsenal have reportedly pulled out of talks with Loic Remy over a possible move to The Emirates, leaving Chelsea FC in pole position to sign the highly rated frenchman, according the Sky Sports sources.

Arsenal had been linked with the signature of the QPR hitman all summer, but Arsene Wenger declared earlier this month that he did believe they needed another striker. Although since that day he has lost first-choice striker Olivier Giroud to injury, suddenly striking alarm-bells.

A great season approaches for Arsenal and Wilshere

Wilshere and Arsenal on the up by Stefan

This coming season will be a very exciting one in English football, and should be a good one for Arsenal. Manchester United have a new manager for the first time in nearly three decades, Manchester City have a new manager and are expected to spend big to retake the crown from their rivals and Chelsea have seen the return of “The Special One” with money and ambition to match his name.

Arsenal’s British core will guarantee future success

Arsenal haven’t had an easy time during the last few seasons, big players have left, captains have left two seasons in a row and every time a new season starts we find ourselves scratching our heads at why we have made another profit during the transfer window – and how we can possibly move forward like this?

I may not usually be an optimist when it comes to Arsenal but in time I think the British players we have in our team will learn to gel properly and create a core to the team that will become unrivalled in world football.

Now is the time to back Arsenal to win the League next season!

Well what a crazy week for English football! It seems that all THREE of Arsenal’s top rivals for the League are changing their managers this summer. We all know about Ferguson, and today it is on Sky Sports that Man City are in talks with Manuel Pelligrini to take over at the Etihad next season.

Then of course we all know that Jose Mourinho is going to Chelsea – and so all three of them are going to be going through a period of upheaval as the new managers settle in.

At last a good result for Arsenal!

Sunderland and Stoke draw is good news for Arsenal by FD

This is a particularly unpredictable end of season at the bottom of the Premiership. Recent results have dragged teams who probably considered themselves out of danger only a few weeks ago back into relegation contention, and tonight’s share of the points between Sunderland and Stoke City didn’t help to make the situation any clearer.

But at least this result is in Arsenal’s favour, and is some consolation for the couple of results that didn’t go our way at the weekend.

Arsenal v Tottenham Analysis – The race for the Top Four hots up!

What are Arsenal’s chances of making the top four?

It’s a record that any club would be proud of: For over 15 years Arsenal has qualified for the Champions League without fail. This season however the Gunners are cutting it mighty close. With today’s 2-2 draw between Wigan and Tottenham, Arsenal is once again in the driver’s seat- if they win their remaining 4 matches, they will get the coveted Champion’s League spot.

How the table could look at the end of the season: 3rd, 4th and 5th  –  by DS

 

After a nail-biting last 20 minutes during the Arsenal game and an enjoyable 35 minutes when Spurs were trailing against Everton, it turned out to be a good weekend! We didn’t play as well as we did last week but we showed our toughness and ground out the 3 points. Spurs were not the same team without Bale and were fortunate to get a point against Everton.

 

Arsenal MUST stop viewing top 4 as success!

The Race for 4th by AH

The title of the article says it all, the fact we are having to fight for 4th place like it’s a trophy is ridiculous. It’s not an achievement no matter what you say and it’s simply not good enough. You could say that’s a negative view to things and I suppose it is, but the fact is it’s the truth and we all know it.

An excellent (and important) weekend for Arsenal – The race swings our way….

Arsenal’s Chance! by AH

An Arsenal win and a Spurs loss is always a good weekend, but this weekend was particular important and it really starts to put things into perspective.

Arsenal won 0-2 against Swansea City, whilst today our North London rivals lost 1-0 to Fulham in what was a nail-biting match for fans.

Arsenal step up interest in Montenegrin star striker

Arsene Wenger has this week firmed up his interest in Fiorentina’s Stevan Jovetic, requesting weekly reports from his scouts in Italy.

Wenger has been keeping taps on the 23 year-old for nearly two seasons now, and is expected to lodge an official bid when the next transfer window opens.

The last few players to receive similar scouting by Steve Rowley and his team include Olivier Giroud and Lukas Podolski.

Reports suggest Arsenal will have to smash their transfer record with a £20Million+ bid to sign the striker, and will be looked at as an important signing for the club. The highest transfer fee paid by the Gunners currently stands at around £18Million, which was paid to Malaga to buy Spanish star Santi Cazorla.
