Arsenal are just as good as Barcelona!

The way that Arsene Wenger has evolved his Arsenal team to play fast one-touch football to entertain the fans and bamboozle our opponents has often led to comparisons with the tikka-takka football played by an on-form Barcelona side, although we havent had the same ability to win trophies.

Could Vermaelen be set for a shock return to Arsenal?

Arsenal’s decision to sell Thomas Vermaelen and Bacary Sagna during the summer transfer window led many fans to believe that Arsene Wenger would be focusing on defensive reinforcements to cure a long-term problem. Although Calum Chambers has shown maturity beyond his tender years following his arrival from Southampton, old problems have reared their ugly head yet again at the Emirates.

Unhappy at Arsenal? NO! Alexis loving EPL and Wenger!!

I think it must be just another example of the anti-Arsenal stance often adopted by the football media in England, where they love to knock anything Gunners related and especially love to have a go at our French manager Arsene Wenger.

Why Pique to Arsenal is NOT just a daft transfer rumour!!

When I first saw the latest Arsenal transfer rumour linking the Gunners with a bid for the Barcelona and Spain international defender Gerard Pique, I thought that it was just a bit of journalistic nonsense, even though the Daily Mail report claims that it has got it’s sources from Spain.

Guardiola in the frame to replace Wenger as Arsenal boss

Over the last week or so, there have been a few reports in the media about who will be the man to replace Arsene Wenger as the Arsenal manager.

Confirmed – Arsenal wish Thomas Vermaelen well for the future

So yet another Arsenal captain bites the dust, as Thomas Vermaelen has passed a medical at the Spanish giants Barcelona. We can only consider it good business for the Gunners for gaining 15m GBP for a 28 year-old with just 12months left on his contract.

Should Arsenal lose £5m to keep Vermaelen from Man Utd?

It seems as though there is a bit of a bidding war developing for the Arsenal defender and club captain Thomas Vermaelen. But Arsene Wenger and the Gunners hierarchy have a decision to make as to whether to simply accept the highest offer, assuming we agree to sell in the first place that is.

Arsenal WON’T sell to Man Utd but WILL fight them for Hummels!

It seems like things are really changing for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal these days. The trophy drought is finally over and the club are now releasing decent sums of money for the manager to spend on players. Not only does that mean that Wenger has been able to buy top class players like Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, but it means that he is not forced to sell his best players either.
