Proof Arsenal were ROBBED against Anderlecht!!

There is more proof today, if Arsenal fans needed it, that the Gunners and probably every other English Premier League club get a raw deal from the Uefa referees in the Champions League. It happens too often and has been going on for too long for it to be a coincidence any more.

A Metro report has revealed that as well as the Belgians first goal being offside, there was clear encroachment from one of their players on the penalty for their second. And with them having missed their last five UCL spot kicks, there is a good chance that they may have folded under the pressure again.

Should Arsenal get kick started with a Honda?

Honda could be good for Arsenal by Stefan

Last night the 2013 Confederations Cup kicked off in Brazil with an entertaining match between the hosts Brazil and Asian Cup champions Japan. One of the stars of the Japanese team is Keisuke Honda who will be known to many people across Europe from his time playing for CSKA Moscow which incidentally has just ended, and I think he could do well at Arsenal.

Arsenal miss out on two midfield targets

The list of midfield targets seems to be getting dangerously small. Maybe Arsene Wenger is perfectly clear in his own mind about who he wants to join the Arsenal squad. I would like to see some positive action, however, before the options all evaporate.

Reports in the media today suggest that two of the midfielders linked with a move to the Emirates will not be Gunners next season. Alan Dzagoev will be staying at CSKA Moscow for at least one more season, while Tongo Doumbia is expected to sign for West Brom soon.

Seydou Doumbia keen on move to Champions League team

Arsenal target Seydou Doumbia has made it evident that his current season at CSKA Moscow is almost certain to be his last as the Ivory Coast international goes looking for Champions League football.

Having made a mockery of goal scoring records in Switzerland and Russia over the last few seasons, 24-year old Doumbia is desperate to prove his worth at the biggest stage. There is plenty of global interest in the man who hammered in 38 goals for his club this season, with clubs in Italy, Spain and England set to compete for his signature.

Arsenal look to the East for their latest targets

Arsene Wenger’s famous eye for talent has seemingly spread all the way to the far reaches of Eastern Europe with Arsenal be linked with some fine new attacking talents in Russia and Ukraine. The men in the spotlight are CSKA Moscow striker Seydou Doumbia and Dnipro winger Yevhen Konoplyanka.

Doumbia has been linked with a number of European clubs after declaring his interest to play in the Champions League and Arsenal have been encouraged in their pursuit after CSKA reportedly agreed to reduce their asking price to £15m. The Ivory Coast striker has traveled all across the globe, which includes spells in Japan and Switzerland and England could well be his next destination.

Arsenal-target Klasic expects Premiership move in January

It has been reported that and Arsenal, and their London rivals Chelsea, both had scouts watching the Serbian star Milos Krasic when he played for CSKA Moscow in the 3-3 draw with Man Utd last month, and today his agent Dejan Joksimovic has admitted that he expects the 25 year-old to move to the Premiership in January.

“I think that if Krasic leaves CSKA in January, he is 90 per cent likely to go to England,” said .

When asked if it was CSKA’s Champions League opponents, Man Utd, that had shown interest, he replied: “Manchester United? There are three or four big English clubs, with important financial resources, interested in him.”
