Arsenal fans will finally get the chance to see the summer signing that we all hope will make the difference in our challenge to regain the Premier League title next season, after Petr Cech watched from the bench as the Gunners won the first match of pre-season to qualify for the final of the Asia Trophy against Everton today.
The Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina thinks that a potential move to Merseyside Premier League team Everton during this summer is a ‘great possibility’.
The 26-year-old Colombian national goalkeeper will fall behind new signing Petr Cech for the next season. Following this, there were rumours that he would move out of the club. Ospina did nothing to douse those links.
The Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina could be moving out of the club but still staying in the Premier League for the upcoming season.
The Colombia national goal keeper is believed to be looking for a way out after the arrival of Petr Cech put his first team chances at risk. And the latest reports coming from the Colombian press indicate that the Everton manager Roberto Martinez is interested in his availability.
The Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud knows all about being criticized in the press (or on forums like JustArsenal!) when he is not scoring goals. It took the Frenchman a couple of years to really get to grip with the Premiership game, and his failure to score in big games, not to mention his hotel-room antics before matches, made him an easy target for journalists and armchair pundits.
Arsenal’s pre-season games used to be very low key trips around Europe to prepare for the Emirates Cup each year, but since Silent Stan took over the club they have been more about increasing our fan base around the world. This summer the Gunners will be going to Singapore for the first time in 24 years to compete in the Barclays Asia Trophy, where we will face stiff opposition from Everton, Stoke and a Singapore Select XI.
It might not have been the most convincing Arsenal performance today, but it was the result that was all important and you cannot complain after the Gunners emerged from a sometimes tricky game against Everton with a win and, perhaps just as crucial, a clean sheet.
Arsenal desparately needed to bounce back with a win today after our disappointment in midweek, and they managed to beat a team that has usually managed to contain us in the last couple of seasons. This has consolidated our Third Place and left us just four points behind Man City in second place.
Arsenal are preparing to face Everton today and Wenger is at pains to be as positive as possible after our disappointing Champions League defeat and reminds us all that there is still another game to play to turn it around. “All the circumstances went against us against Monaco,” Arsène Wenger told the official Arsenal website. “We lost our heads a little bit when things went against us. We lost patience too quickly, we lost security too quickly and we lost discipline too quickly.
