Navas unaware of Arsenal Interest by AM
Arsenal have been linked with a move for the Spanish winger Jesus Navas this season. In this is not the first time he has been linked with the Gunners, back in 2009, he was also rumoured to be on his way to the Emirates, but it didn’t materialize. Chelsea have also been a long admirer of Navas and they even managed to reach a deal for the Spanish international, but the deal was called off due to Navas’ homesickness. Navas can’t stay away from home for long and this has even prevented him from travelling with the Spanish national team in the past. It is said that Navas is undergoing treatment for this and things have improved significantly. .......Read the full article here
Gervinho is remaining positive! by KJ
This transfer window has been a mixed bag. Arsenal have signed 3 quality players in Podolski, Giroud and Cazorla but have lost two key members of our first team in Alex Song and Robin Van Persie.
But despite the changes (plus hopefully more to come) the Gunners winger Gervinho is still remaining positive on Arsenal’s chances this season with his most recent interview: “There’s great belief that we can contend for trophies,”
“This is important, not only for the players, but also for the Club in general. .......Read the full article here
There was much discussion about what three conditions Nicklas Bendtner put on any club that came in to buy him from Arsenal, in fact we had a few humourous predictions made on JustArsenal yesterday in this post.
So obviously this got the journalists thinking and it was only a matter of time before someone tracked him down to get clarification of his demands and it looks like Sky Sports got in first.
The first and foremost demand is that the club must be playing in the Champions League and also that he must be in commuting distance to London so he can visit his son regularly. .......Read the full article here
The little Mexican wizard Carlos Vela is very happy to be on loan at Real Sociedad in Spain, and it was revealed this week that he is set to ask Arsene Wenger to allow him to stay away from the Emirates and continue playing for the La Liga minnows.
Now today he has explained his decision, and his feeling that he never really felt like he belonged at Arsenal. He said: “I would stay at Real,”
“I am happy and the people support me. I owe Arsenal affection and gratitude for the opportunity that they gave me, but I was not happy there and this affected my work. .......Read the full article here
Arsene Wenger is proud of his record of always finishing in the Top Four of the Premiership and he intends to return to that position again by the end of the season.
But right now Arsenal face Blackburn looking up from 7th place in the League, and Wenger considers that as this is the lowest the Gunners have ever been while he has been manager is actually a compliment to his consistency over the years.
“The fact that we have never been in this position is rather a credit to me in 16 years so I do not take that as blame,” he said. .......Read the full article here
Aaron Ramsey is looking forward to being captain of his country again tomorrow when Wales take on Northern Ireland, and he thinks that his progress from being on a hospital bed with a broken leg at this point last year, to beng captain of Wales.
Now he is looking forward to finishing his rehabilitation by playing regularly, and fighting for his first team place at Arsenal next season.

It is great news for Arsenal that the young Pole Wojciech Szczesny has signed a new five year contract (and good news for him that he increased his wages by a reported 15 times!). He certainly looks to be perfectly assured and confident and a guaranteed star of the future.
Presumably he is going to become the permanent understudy to Lukasz Fabianski, who is looking more and more assured between the sticks, despite last weeks lapse against Andy Carroll. Wenger has always ascertained that Fabianski would prove his critics wrong, and he is halfway to doing that already. The player himself has somehow managed to retain his confidence despite every Arsenal fan (and his dog) calling for him to sold last summer. .......Read the full article here
I have spent the summer listening to Arsenal fans saying that Arsene Wenger should be spending some of the massive profits he has made from selling players to improve the Arsenal squad. They intimated that if he spent even half of the profits made, Arsenal would be able to compete with the Chelsea and Man Utds of this world.
I have agreed with some critics (like Andrei Arshavin) that Arsenal were always just two top-class players away from being world-beaters, so I was just a little upset that Wenger didn’t try to buy just one superstar with the massive profits made in the last few years, .......Read the full article here
