Arsene Wenger admits that it is only paperwork that is between Yaya Sanogo and joining Ajax on loan. He also thinks that it would be to the benefit of the forward. The presence of two former Arsenal legends at the Dutch club is a cause of optimism for Wenger. Marc Overmars is the director of football at Ajax while Dennis Bergkamp is the assistant to the manager Frank de Boer.
It was never likely for Arsenal to use our young French international striker Yaya Sanogo as a first team player this season. And the fact that the tall 22-year old was not one of the fringe players included in the Arsenal squad for the pre-season visit to Singapore to play in the Barclays Asia trophy confirmed this.
Remembering one of Arsenal’s best ever playeers, Dennis Bergkamp by TRJ
There have been a few articles today commemorating the 20th anniversary of DB10’s arrival at Arsenal. I remember clearly being in denial – that this was some kind of cruel prank…it wasn’t just Dennis but it was the Double D – Dennis and David (Bergkamp and Platt)!
Arsenal Pride by JM
A lot has been said and written in the media all these years about how Arsenal football club has gone downhill in the past 10 years, with hardly a trophy in sight. I beg to differ with this generalised feeling amongst fans and pundits.
Both Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez scored in Arsenal’s 4-1 demolition of Liverpool this weekend, which takes their respective totals to 18 for Giroud (despite missing many months out injured) and 20 for the sublime Chilean hitman. Arsene Wenger was obviously in a bullish good mood when he spoke to the Mirror, but you can’t argue with stats can you?
The Arsenal and England international star Theo Walcott is finally back in the match day squads after a year on the sidelines with the anterior cruciate ligament injury he picked up in the FA cup win over the spuds last January. So he is understandably keen to get on to the pitch and start to score goals for the Gunners again.
Why Arsenal do need a striker, but why it is not as easy as it sounds. by RS
Since the departure of Robin Van Persie, Arsenal fans have been looking for his worthy successor.
That is because for the previous fifteen years, Arsenal were always in possession of world class strikers: Bergkamp, Henry, Anelka and Van Persie.
Arsene Wenger has built himself a reputation at Arsenal for finding players that nobody has heard of before, or really considered as the sort who can win you things. But in recent years, those players have not been winning things and Sol Campbell says it is time for a change.
