Atletico Madrid after Arsenal’s Cazorla? No way Jose!

There have been many Arsenal transfer rumours linking our very own little Spaniard with a move to the La Liga winners Atletico Madrid, but with Cazorla playing brilliantly against Man City in the Community Shield, not to mention the opening goal, there is absolutely no reason why Wenger should get rid of one of our best players.

The ex-Malaga star has himself rubbished any possible move back to Spain this summer, and has made it clear that he is only focused on having another successful season with the Gunners.

Official Arsenal videos from Man City match – Goals and extras

JustArsenal are being provided with official FA videos from this season, so we can happily pass these on to our readers without breaking any copyright laws! It will be great to have this post available to look back at our brilliant start to the season, especially Girouds stunning goal, not that Ramsey’s and Cazorla’s were any less satisfying!

And although most of us saw the game live or on TV, these videos show you previously unseen footage from the heart of Wembley. Wellworth a look!

So lets start off with the video in the tunnel before the game – see if you can name all the players as they arrive…..

Why Arsenal must move on from Rosicky…quickly!

Why Wenger’s love of Rosicky will need to end soon by KJ

Arsene Wenger signed Tomas Rosicky for Arsenal in 2006 from Dortmund and we expected great things. Unfortunately, he was injured for the majority of his time at the club but even at 33, Wenger was happy to give him a 2 year deal at the club. But why?

Rosicky has been injured for so long that unlike a normal player, he hasn’t worn his body out and therefore has more “legs” than a standard 33 year old footballer who was able to play consistently during his prime years. Rosicky still has relatively good pace and stamina for his age and that is why Wenger consistently breaks his rule of not awarding players over 30 with more than a one year contract.

It’s make-or-break time for Cazorla at Arsenal

Cazorla needs to improve for Arsenal this season by KJ

Cazorla lit up the 2012/2013 Arsenal side with brilliant midfield play and decisive goals. Unfortunately, he hasn’t been able to capture that form during the 2013/2014 season and the summer has been rife with talks of him looking to move on. He’s publicly stated that he’s staying with Arsenal and this coming season is as important as they come for the Spanish magician.

Arsenal star ignores Atletico to target Premier League trophy

There have been Arsenal transfer rumours cropping up all summer, linking our Spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla with a possible return to Spain with the current La Liga champions, Atletico Madrid. In fact, Cazorla himself had a lot to do with the speculation, when he spoke before the end of last season about being desperate to win a trophy or two before his playing career is over.

Where will Santi Cazorla fit in at Arsenal this season?

Cazorla’s involvement at Arsenal going forward? by TJ

Signed by Arsenal in the summer of 2012, Santi Cazorla turned out to become one of the most talented players the Gunners ever signed. When Santi first took the field for Arsenal against Sunderland, many were impressed by the talent of this little man. Fast, witty and hardworking, Santi Cazorla instantly established himself to be one of the fan favourites amongst the Arsenal faithful. He finished his first season with the gunners with a respectable 12 goals and 11 assists. In the 2012-2013 season, he was the heart of almost every Arsenal offense. He played in every premier league match that season and was the Arsenal player of the season that year.

Free kicks another string to Rambo’s bow for Arsenal?

Why Ramsey should take free kicks for Arsenal by Sumo

What struck me as odd during the Germany World Cup campaign was the Arsenal midfield maestro Mesut Özil playing second fiddle to Bayern Munich’s Toni Kroos in the set pieces. Kroos is a box to box midfielder who has a very good shot on him. He shoots well. But him taking the free kicks for Germany was a bit beyond me (I don’t watch Bayern play).

How will the arrival of Sanchez at Arsenal affect Podolski, Cazorla and Rosicky?

Players who could find themselves in the Arsenal fringes next season by SE

Alexis Sanchez moving from Nou Camp to the Emirates could bring about colossal changes in the way Arsenal setup this upcoming season. The Chilean can play as a right-winger, left-winger and even up top as the central striker. The problem is that the likes of Podolski, Santi Cazorla and Theo Walcott play in a similar position, with attributes akin to Sanchez’. And, with Mesut Ozil a certainty to play in his preferred role at No.10, Arsene Wenger might have a couple of very important team selections to make in every game Arsenal are involved in.

Arsenal players rave about new star signing Sanchez

Remember what a boost the signing of Mesut Ozil gave the whole of Arsenal Football Club last August? Well it seems to be happening again with the capture of Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona. There is maybe not quite such a big reaction to this one from the media and from Arsenal fans, but the last minute nature of last year’s deal afterr a summer of nothing happening, meant there was an outpouring of relief as much as delight.

Arsenal can’t afford to sell ANY players this summer

Arsenal need to keep the squad together by AT

We are essentially half way through the World Cup now and it will soon finish, meaning certain players will be joining the club and there could be some outgoings at Arsenal as well. But I think that moving too many players out could be massively detrimental to us in the long run.

There have been reports that Vermaelen, Podolski, Cazorla, Monreal and Arteta are interested in moving away from Arsenal or have attracted interest from other clubs. It would be a catastrophe if we were to sell any more than one of these players even if we were to replace them with similar quality players.

At least 3 Arsenal stars won’t pick up World Cup injuries!

It is always a bit of a balancing act being an Arsenal fan when there is a big internatyional football tournament on during the summer. On the one hand, you are proud of the Arsenal players when they are selected to play for their country and you want them to do well, while on the other hand you want them back in great shape for the start of the next season.

Santi Cazorla thinking of leaving Arsenal?

Considering that Arsenal are supposedly intending to invest hundreds of millions in the transfer market this summer, it is a little disconcerting to find that the talented Spaniard Santi Cazorla could be interested in listening to offers after the World Cup ends in Brazil.

There are reports in Spain that are suggesting that the unlucky Champions League finalists Atletico Madrid are keen on taking Cazorla back to his home country, and the talented midfielder certainly didn’t seem averse to the idea when he was tackled by journalists on the subject.
