Well we have only played one round of the International matches, and only have Arsenal players scored quite a few goal (as in Walcott, Cazorla and Sanchez) but suddenly our opponents have become severely weakened. Is this the year where injuries actually work in our favour for a change?
There have been reports in the football media over the last year or so that the Germany international star Mario Gotze could be ready to leave his Bundesliga club and Arsenal were one of the big clubs who were spoken about as a potential destination for the exciting young attacking player.
Wenger finally going for Mario? by MP
Hi, I am a half English Arsenal fan living in Spain, and I have been following the Gunners for many years, but I find that the rumours reported on JustArsenal never seem to match up with the news in the Spanish media. At the moment the Spanish press are reporting that “El Arsenal activa la opción Mario Götze” e.g. they are now ready to match Bayern Munich’s asking price for the German international Mario Gotze.
Arsene Wenger stuck to his usual mantra after the West Ham defeat, telling the media: “I can only repeat what I’ve said: if an exceptional solution turns up, we will do it.
“We bought and still lost the game. We listen to people but we have to focus on the quality of our performance.”
They say that there is no such thing as bad publicity and so perhaps the Arsenal and England star Jack Wilshere should just be glad that he is being talked about. At least he has not been forgotten and this is further evidence that the young midfielder is still being seen as one of the best hopes for the future of his club and country.
I blame Arsene Wenger for all this to be honest. If the Arsenal manager was a bit less like a poker player on his last hand, all in, and with his house and car riding on the result, or if he had actually done a bit more of what the football media had been expecting, then they would not have to start grasping at straws quite so desperately.
Arsene Wenger has repeatedly stated that he will only buy players that could seriously improve the Arsenal team and at least 80% of the fans believe that he should be only looking for Defensive midfielders and World-Class strikers but what if a super attacking midfielder should become available? Wenger is well-known for stacking his midfield with stars, and with Rosicky, Arteta and Cazorla approaching their twilight years he could easily make room for one more young superstar.
There is a new Arsenal transfer rumour doing the rounds and it is safe to say that nobody saw this one coming. This time is not about a potential signing for the Gunners, but about another club showing interest in one of our players. No surprise there, but the club is the German and European champions Bayern Munich and the player is our 33-year old midfielder Tomas Rosicky.
