POW! Arsenal fans discover we JUST missed out on MESSI

I have had to put up with a lot since that first game at Highbury made me a red and white Gooner to the core, but this one hurts more than most. Hey, I am not saying that being an Arsenal fan is all bad, because we have had some fantastic times and amazing teams and players and about 99 percent of football clubs in the world would kill for our success and status. But the last decade has been pretty frustrating.

Arsenal HOT favourites for Cavani transfer after Wenger’s words!!

This latest Arsenal transfer rumour is guaranteed to get the excitement levels among the Arsenal fans on the increase, as the PSG and Uruguay international striker Edinson Cavani is the type of centre forward that could turn an average team into a good one or a good one into a great one.

So after reading a report in the Daily Star which revealed that the Gunners were strong favourites to sign the 27-year old forward in the next summer transfer window, I really hope that there is some truth behind this rumour. With Paddy Power offering 17/10 on Arsenal and the next best prive being 11/2 for Real Madrid, the bookies certainly seem to think so.

Could Wenger be tempted to leave Arsenal for £10m a year PSG job?

Arsene Wenger has jumped to the top of PSG’s transfer list apparently. The super rich French club want the Arsenal manager to take over from the current coach Carlo Ancelotti in the summer, apparently, and they are ready to tempt Le Prof with a three year contract worth £30 million.

According to the Sunday Mirror, Ancelotti is aware that he will probably be replaced at the end of the season, even if he wins the French Ligue 1 title. The Qatari owners want more from their massive investment in the club, as they are failing to dominate in the French league again, PSG currently sit in third place, three points off the top with a game in hand. They lost the title last year to Montpellier and the owners have had enough.

Should Arsenal worry about Wilshere’s temper?

I fear that opposition players will start to target Jack Wilshere, niggling him with small fouls and winding up because they think he might retaliate. Wilshere can have a devastating effect for Arsenal, but he is no use if he gets sent off, leaving us with 10 men, as happened at Old Trafford when we were finally showing signs of getting in to the game.

Barcelona need Ibrahimovich cash to pay for Fabregas

A report in todays Daily Star is saying that the new Barcelona president Sandro Rosell is taking personal charge of the negotiations with Man City for Zlatan Ibrahimovich, so that he can ring-fence the cash received to pay for Cesc Faregas.

It was revealed yesterday that the Catalan club are looking for a new £125m bank loan, but Rosell is keen to pay for the Arsenal captain without the need for more funding.

A Barcelona ‘source’ in the Star was quoted as saying:“The president has decided to sort this deal out himself personally.

Would you swap Cesc for Ibrahimovich?

The ongoing saga of the transfer of Cesc Fabregas to Barcelona has taken a new twist today. The Daily Mirror is suggesting that Barcelona are preparing to offer Zlatan Ibrahimovich to Arsenal as part of any deal to take Cesc to the Camp Nou.

With David Villa’s arrival, Ibrahimovich is now thought to be surplus to requirements, despite the club paying a record 69m euros for the striker just last summer.

The Swede has been severely criticized in Spain, but still managed to score 16 goals in just 29 league (including all his first five games!). The year before he was the top scorer in Italy with 25 goals for Inter Milan, so to say the man is over-rated may be a slight exaggeration!
