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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
