Stats show Giroud IS vital AND good enough for Arsenal

Arsene Wenger had some warm words of praise and support for Olivier Giroud yesterday, after the French striker changed the game at Everton for Arsenal and powered in an injury time headed equaliser. The boss suggested that the Gunners do not need any more strikers and that he expects the big man to improve again and be a key figure for us this season. But is the Prof right?

Is Edison Cavani worth 50m to Arsenal? YES HE IS!

Edinson Cavani – is he worth it? by Big Gun

Our current squad is looking stronger and believably more optimistic than it ever has since the era of the Invincibles. It has taken almost 10 years to get to the point where we can confidently say – Arsenal are back. Everyone is talking about it, especially after our sublime display against league winners Man City last weekend to clench another high profile trophy in the short span of 2 months.

Arsenal move in on top striker as his club pursue replacement

Arsenal are reportedly said to be keen on bringing Edinson Cavani to The Emirates this summer, with Angel Di Maria’s protracted move holding the key. Paris Saint-Germain have been linked with the Manchester United target all summer, with Real Madrid all set to cash-in to recoup some of their transfer kitty back after a busy summer of new Galacticos.

Why Wenger is RIGHT to be patient on Arsenal transfers!!

When Arsene Wenger recently warned Arsenal fans that we would need to be patient this summer, and not to expect much action in the transfer market until after the World Cup finals, it generally brought two responses.

The first, was along the lines of, `oh no here we go again with the penny pinching and deadline day panic buys1 and the other was, `don’t listen to the wily old fox, he’s having you on`. That may still prove right, but I have been thinking that the Frenchman may have a very good reason to be patient.

What missing top 4 could mean for Arsenal

Morning Arsenal fans, but it is certainly not a good morning. The result was bad enough, but the poorness of the Arsenal performance against Everton has made us all very worried that the Gunners will finally relinquish the Wenger cup and find ourselves out of the Champions League next season. So what exactly will that mean for the club?

Nothing is decided yet and Everton have some really tough games left to play; with Man City, United, Southampton, Palace, Sunderland and Hull who could all do us a favour. But for the purposes of this article, I am going to assume that they beat us to that coveted last European place.

Arsenal MUST fight off Man Utd in Schneiderlin transfer

Maybe it is just wishful thinking on my part, but I believe that Arsenal will finally break out of the financial shackles of recent years and actually spend some serious money in this summer’s transfer market. We were told last year that the Gunners were now in a position to be able to compete with the big boys but, apart from the record signing of Mesut Ozil, we didn’t see it.

How can Arsenal make the most of £100m transfer budget

Who do we bring in with £100 million? by KJ

It has been reported that Stan Kroenke has sanctioned a transfer kitty of £100 million for Arsene Wenger to spend this summer. I don’t know if this is a ploy to get Arsene to stay or whether it is a genuine statement by Kroenke to signal Arsenal’s intentions this summer. Either way, it is a great amount of money to spend in the summer and there aren’t too many positions we have to fill until we have a team that can consistently challenge for the title next season. So how do we spend that £100 million?

Arsenal on alert after Cavani states BPL desire

There might be an Arsenal fans somewhere that does not want Arsene Wenger, or whoever might replace him, to spend big money on a big name striker this summer, but I haven’t met them. They don’t come much bigger than Edinson Cavani, and the Uruguayan striker has made it pretty clear that he would be keen on a move to the Premier League this season.

The powerful and skilful striker has not had the sort of season he expected since he moved to the French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain last year. Because of Zlatan Ibrahimovich and his super ego, Cavani seems to have been pushed out wide or played as a second striker and he is not happy about it, as an ESPN report reveals.

Will Giroud choose Arsenal or his wife Jennifer?

Olivier-Giroud-et-sa-femme-Jennifer

Whether you are one of the Arsenal fans who agrees with TV pundits like Alan Shearer, who thinks that Olivier Giroud and the way he plays is absolutely vital to the Gunners’ chances, or one who thinks the only thing the French striker is good for is pulling a farmer’s plough around a field, you could easily be seeing the last of him this season.

For Arsenal to think BIG they MUST spend big on a striker!!

Strikers key to success by Big Gun

Dear Gooners, I must admit, last night’s game was broadcast extremely late in my country, so I only managed to watch up until the 60th minute before passing out. Typing this and barely able to keep my eyes open right now at work, I cannot believe what I’m hearing about the second half. When I turned the telly off, I honestly thought after our complete domination in the first half (70% possession and 2 goals) we were going to rake in at least 5 before the final whistle, whilst keeping a clean sheet.

Should Arsenal go for Ba if Suarez transfer bid fails?

As it seems increasingly unlikely that Arsenal will be able to sign Luis Suarez, whether in January or next summer, then Arsene Wenger is going to have to turn his attention elsewhere. One striker who is believed to have been close to moving to the Emirates a couple of times already, Demba Ba, could be at the top of the list and the loan move that Jose Mourinho blocked in the summer could go through in January.

Can `good faith` clause help Arsenal complete Suarez transfer?

Contracts, “good faith” and Suarez by Jak

Arsenal transfer target Luis Suarez seems to be stuck in the mid-table mediocrity of Liverpool for at least another year, unless something extremely unexpected happens. Why did we bid that £40 Million +1 silly number for Suarez? Why do Suarez and his camp think that he has a release clause at that price?

Because he really thinks he has a release clause. He really believes that if Liverpool did not make it to the CL and if a CL team came calling they would let him go. Or else why write a clause at all?
