Are Arsenal lacking ambition ahead of the new season?

Lack of transfer activity shows why Arsenal will again finish no higher than 4th‏ by KM

I don’t know what the problem with Wenger is. Every summer he is under the same pressure to deliver the mega transfers that we need. Anticipation is that he will finally make the big move to remove the gap to the top but this summer it already feels all so familiar.

Just look at the other top teams. Chelsea already signed Fabregas and Costa and are bringing Courtois back. That’s three major signings already. And the transfer window is just opening. I’d be over the moon if Arsenal made one of these signings. Is that how low the criteria at Arsenal have become?

Arsenal MUST spend the money saved from Fabregas rejection

Fabregas Rejection- For Football or Financial Reasons? by DS

When Arsenal signed Ozil last summer I made a comment that the jury was still out on our board. Was this signing a sign of things to come, a signal of our owners ambitions, or was it simply a crowd pleaser, needs must after the defeat on the opening day of the season to Aston Villa, a realisation that angry fans were no longer listening to the excuses of the club’s mouthpiece Arsene Wenger.

Why would Arsenal want this Man United reject?

The biggest Arsenal transfer rumour yesterday was definitely the reported agreement between Manchester United and Thomas Vermaelen which incensed most of the readers (and writers!) on this site, but today the Mirror has taken this a step further and suggested that Arsene Wenger could use United´s interest to bring the English midfielder Tom Cleverly to the Emirates.

This to me is a preposterous suggestion, especially as the 24 year-old is one of the most unliked players at Old Trafford. Sir Alex Ferguson had high hopes that Cleverly would be the natural successor to Paul Scholes in the United first team, but if anything he was one of the reasons that David Moyes was such a spectacular failure in his short reign at Old Trafford.

Fabregas looking for success with Chelsea after Arsenal rejection

Arsenal´s old El Capitan has confirmed that Arsene Wenger simply rejected to exercise the Gunners famous “buy-back” option when Cesc Fabregas decided it was time to leave Barcelona, but is now looking to be “phenomenally successful” at our bitter rivals Chelsea.

Fabregas revealed that in his conversations with Wenger,the Frenchman made it clear that Mesut Ozil was the new Main Man in the Arsenal midfield, and there was no longer a place in the Arsenal side for the 27 year-old. Fabregas said: “There came a moment when I decided my time at Barcelona was over and I only tried to look for the best option for me.

Can Arsenal fans laugh (quietly) at Chelsea signings?

Don’t go shouting it out loud, Arsenal fans. In fact, put your hands over your mouth and whisper it, in case it comes back to bite you on the bum, but it looks like Chelsea and Jose Mourinho, yet again, might be signing a couple of duds.

Every manager and his dog was hoping to sign the Brazilian born striker Diego Costa. The 25-year old, who has chosen to play for Spain rather than his country of birth Brazil, has been on fire for Atletico Madrid this season. But could he be a bit of a one-season wonder? 27 La Liga goals this season, but just 10 in the previous season, maybe suggests that this is so.

The ONLY way for Arsenal to forget Cesc is to become Champions!

I am one of the Arsenal fans who think Arsene Wenger was right not to exercise the first refusal option and bring Cesc Fabregas back to the Emirates. But I also understand the anger of Gooners after the Spaniard joined our London and Premier League rivals Chelsea.

To be honest, I am surprised that Cesc went for the move. I am not exactly cursing him for it, after all it is his career and his livelihood, but I still hope that he and Mourinho win nothing, while Arsenal and Wenger are vindicated as we go on to lift the Premier League trophy next May.

Arsenal not interested in Fabregas – Man City now favourites

There has been acres and acres of debate about whether Arsenal fans think we should buy Cesc Fabregas back from Barcelona or not, and the news yesterday that the ex-Arsenal captain was in London only fuelled the speculation that he would be having talks with Arsene Wenger.

But this morning, Matt Law in the Telegraph reports that the Gunners have not responded to Barcelona’s message that Cesc is for sale and Wenger has no intentions of activating the buy-back clause in Fabregas’ contract. This has also been backep by a story in the Daily Mail.

Do Arsenal actually NEED Cesc Fabregas? I don’t think so….

The curious case of Cesc Fabregas by MrAFC

Cesc Fabregas, a name that will forever be in the hearts of all Arsenal fans. The diminutive Spaniard who went from youth prodigy to captain in just a matter of seasons, and who led the team with purpose and aggression, the type that had been lacking since a certain Patrick Viera. The golden boy, who could strike a ball onto a five pence piece from forty yards away, and carried the burden after the departure of the invincibles. There is no doubt about it, he will always be remembered as a legend, the boy wonder that symbolised everything that is great about the latest Arsene Wenger era; ‘we don’t buy superstars, we make them’. Now, with his stock falling in Barcelona and the fact that we have first refusal, the pursuit of our former captain is well and truly on, but there is just one question; Do we actually need him?

Why Arsenal should beware of bringing back former players

Do we really want to bring back former players? by K.M.

Heading into the transfer window, not too much is rumored about Arsenal yet, except a few former players we might look to bring back. Now first of all, Wenger rarely brings former players although we have seen it in recent years a few times including Flamini who is in the current squad.

But honestly does Arsenal football club need the rumored people? As good as Carlos Vela is doing at Sociedad, he is no signing of intent. We need some pace on the left but I’d target Di Maria if I wanted to show intent. What happened to Draxler? If he is as good as Hazard, the money would be worth it.

Man United want Fabregas, but Fabregas wants Arsenal!

Every year there are more and more Fabregas-to-Arsenal rumours, but this year it is looking like it could actually come to pass, now that the 27 year-old’s love affair with the Barcelona fans seems to have come to an end.

Poor old David Moyes tried very hard to secure captain Fab last summer without success, but now the incoming Man United manager Louis Van Gaal has also made the Spanish international his number one target after losing interest in Toni Kroos, according to a report in todays Daily Star.

Arsenal rumours May 25th – Fabregas, Griezmann, Bernard and Schneiderlin

On the day that the Arsenal Director Lord Harris has promised Arsene Wenger almost unlimited funds to improve the team, the daily papers are full of big-money Arsenal transfer rumours to help Wenger in his search!

To start with, the Daily Mirror says that Arsenal are in pole position to re-sign Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona. Apparently if Barcelona put Captain Fantastic on the transfer list then they need to inform Arsenal as soon as they receive a bid for him, and Wenger gets to have first refusal. Could Wenger turn down the chance to bring Cesc back to the Emirates?

Arsenal odds on for Draxler and Fabregas nears Barca exit

Barcelona midfielder and former favourite son of Arsenal, Cesc Fabregas, could spark a bidding war between Arsene Wenger’s side and the Manchester clubs. Barcelona are reportedly ready to listen to offers for the 26-year old whose return to the Catalan club has not been as rosy as he expected. He was booed by the home supporters during Barcelona’s 2-1 win against Athletic Bilbao and that was not the first time.

In a recent online poll, 50 percent of the Barcelona fans that voted would prefer to see Fabregas leave the club. Fabregas is in his third season since he left Arsenal where he became a superstar but the club’s supporters never took to him. He has often been used as a scapegoat in the club’s recent failings.
