Why Arsenal are right to look for transfer “bargains”

Who are the worldclass players or finished products? by KickAssFan

Every now and then, you hear Arsenal fans crying out for certain very popular and skillful players who play for well recognised clubs and leagues to be bought. They call such players “finished products” or “worldclass”. Well a finished product, in my opinion, is one whose skills have been well perfected, you are just certain he has the unwavering skills to perform in specific positions. While I’d define a world class player as one who can perform beautifully well at a high level consistently; not that such a player doesn’t make mistakes, but most of his actions on the pitch are right, very often right.

Proof that Arsenal were right and Madrid wrong on Ozil

Real Madrid really miss Arsenal’s Ozil by Big Gun

Dear Gooners, no one can doubt the type of impact Mesut Ozil has had on Arsenal, both politically and in terms of overall team performance since his signing. We have witnessed some exquisite play from the German playmaker this season and quite honestly I think he is one of the reasons why we are sitting where we are. Of course, going into a new season without selling our best, but rather strengthening the squad has had the biggest influence on our consistency and team spirit.

Madrid starlet Morata rejects Spurs for loan move to Arsenal

Arsenal should sign Alvaro Morata on loan by KJ

Quite a few news outlets in Spain have been reporting over the last week that Arsenal have agreed a loan deal for young Real Madrid talent, Alvaro Morata. This, if true, is great news for the Arsenal and could potentially set us up in the striker position for the next ten years if this potential loan goes well.

Is Ramsey really worth £50 million to Arsenal?

When Aaron Ramsey joined Arsenal back in 2008, he cost the Gunners around £5 million. At times during his Arsenal career, a lot of fans would have gladly taken that to sell him on again, but after his form and confidence have sky rocketed this season, Arsene Wenger has declared that he would not sell him for 10 times that amount, a whopping £50 million.

The Frenchman was answering questions after Ramsey scored another two goals, taking his tally for the season to 18, eight in the Premier League and five in the Champions League. As the report on Arsenal.com reveals, Wenger appreciates every part of Ramsey’s game and to be honest, if the Welshman carries on like he is, it is hard to think of another player that could replace him.

Arsenal executive’s `rivals` jibe at Tottenham is bang on!

‘Tottenham aren’t Arsenal’s rivals’ suggests Gazids! by Ash

Arsenal spokesman and chief executive Ivan Gazids is often facing the rebellions of Arsenal fans when it comes to his position at the club and the action, or perhaps lack of action, and influence he seems to have in this club, but for once he has actually got the Arsenal faithful on his side by taunting local rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Wenger reveals how Tottenham and Bale delayed Ozil transfer

It still seems slightly unreal to see Mesut Ozil on the pitch in an Arsenal shirt, even though he has settled in so well he could be one of the Gunners’ longest serving players. Maybe it is because Arsenal spent so little for so long, that we never really expected Arsene Wenger to spend quite so much on one player, even though we were told he had the money.

Arsenal star Ozil at the centre of Real Madrid losing the plot!!

Mesut Ozil was too expensive!! That is the view of the former Arsenal keeper Jens Lehmann, anyway. The former Germany keeper never got to play with Ozil, as he retired the year before the talented midfielder’s debut, but he obviously has seen a lot of Arsenal’s new star.

Lehmann is not criticising Ozil, or saying that Arsenal should not have signed him, far from it. He is just sayoing that the numbers involved are over the top, and I am sure that Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal board agree. The problem is that transfer fees are getting ridiculous, especially for the top players. Lehmann believes that Real Madrid are to blame, because of the even crazier prices paid by the Spanish club.

Could Liverpool be Arsenal’s biggest rivals for the title?

At the end of last season, Arsenal fans were really on a high after a late surge to overtake Tottenham for the last Champions League spot. Then, with the wholesale changes being made at Manchester United, City and Chelsea, we started to get this unfamiliar feeling of optimism for the coming season.

Arsene Wenger and Ivan Gazidis were making encouraging noises about spending power, and it was clear that we would not lose any of the club’s best players. A few key signings was all that was needed for a real title challenge, so after the dust has settled and the Premier League season has started to take shape, how does it look now?

Arsenal get Suarez transfer boost from Real Madrid fans

I don’t think anyone would be surprised if Arsene Wenger tries to sign Luis Suarez for Arsenal again, maybe even as soon as next January. That doesn’t mean that the Uruguayan striker will be coming to the Emirates, though, because there are a number of factors to the deal and many obstacles in the way.

Having said that, one of the main ones could have disappeared today. Suarez has made no secret of his desire to play for Real Madrid, although he did welcome the summer interest from Arsenal. Not many would argue that Madrid would be strong favourites to sign the striker if they went up against Arsenal, but a poll of Madrid fans in Marca has revealed that the fans would prefer to sign Radamel Falcao, and the voters were nearly three quarters for the Colombian hit man.

Arsenal’s Ozil shirt sales will infuriate Real Madrid fans further

While Arsenal fans are still in party mode, despite still not seeing the new signing Mesut Ozil run on to a pitch in an Arsenal shirt yet, the fans of his former club Real Madrid are in grumble mode. In various surveys taken by Spanish football sites, a majority of Madrid fans are unhappy with the sale of Ozil.

They have not been cheered up today, with an AS report stating that Zinedine Zidane, a former player and current coach, feels that Gareth Bale was not worth the money. Oh dear. The former World Footballer of the Year is just the latest in a long line of players, managers and football experts to say the same thing.

Arsenal transfer joy as Ozil takes medical in German hospital

It appears that Arsenal are on the verge of not just breaking their current transfer record, but smashing it into smithereens. Having endured the last three months of the transfer window, and being offered only the two free transfers of Yaya Sanogo and Mathieu Flamini to get excited about, Arsenal fans could be about to be rewarded with a true world class player.

A report on Sky Sports claims that as well as agreeing a transfer fee of £42.5 million with Real Madrid, the Gunners have beaten off any potential competition from the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United for the German international Mesut Ozil.

Why is Gerrard talking about Arsenal and Suarez again?

There are two huge derby games being played today. As we know, Arsenal host Tottenham in what is already being billed as a massive game in who has the balance of power in north London, but before that there is the small matter of Liverpool vs Manchester United. With all the hype and history surrounding this match, I was surprised to read today in the Telegraph that the Liverpool captain has been talking about Luis Suarez and his possible move to Arsenal.
