Sagna’s lack of movement suggests he will almost certainly be off! by Ash
Arsenal have so far convinced Per Mertesacker, Tomas Rosicky to extend their contracts, and seemingly verbally agreed with the likes of Ramsey, Cazorla and Arsene Wenger himself; however one name that continues to elude the Gunners is French international right back, Bacary Sagna. In today’s Daily Mail, it is reported that more talks are planned but the £20 million package may be just too much and other clubs like Inter Milan are circling the Emirates like vultures. .......Read the full article here
Is Micah Richards an Arsenal target this summer? by Ash
It may be a little way off until the next transfer window, however with rumours circulating Arsenal have started looking at summer suitors already, with Alvaro Morata supposedly being lined up, the story about Micah Richards was one that couldn’t be missed. .......Read the full article here
Jenkinson should be Arsenal’s right back next season! by Ash
As the weeks go by I become more and more adamant that this season will be Bacary Sagna’s last at the Emirates, with the Frenchman increasingly likely to move on for pastures new this summer. Sagna’s contract runs out in the summer and with little signs suggesting that a new deal that he is willing to accept has been made, means that an exit is already being paved in the player’s thoughts. .......Read the full article here
Come on Arsenal, sharpen your pencils, get your act together and this time make it count. One of the longest running contract sagas, complete with `will-he-stay-or-will-he-go` stories and clubs all over Europe being linked, could be finally coming to an end and so we should soon know whether Bacary Sagna will still be a Gunner next year or not.
According to the Daily Mail, the 31-year old French international is set to have a final round of talks with Arsenal about a new contract. And if they don’t go well, that could be that. Arsenal are well aware of what the defender wants, it is just a matter of giving it to him. Simples, no? .......Read the full article here
Right Arsenal, beat Liverpool today and not only is the season firmly back on track and the disappointing defeat at Anfield almost forgotten, but the road to Wembley and an FA cup trophy opens up before us. Maybe just as important is a good, strong and competitive performance from the Gunners with a long and hard road ahead of us until the end of the season.
Arsene Wenger has made quite a few changes, with Lukasz Fabianski starting in goal, Lukas Podolski starting on the left and Oxlade-Chamberlain on the right. He has also gone for the protection of the Arteta and Flamini double pivot, probably to try and help the back four against Liverpool’s dangerous attack. .......Read the full article here
If you ask most Arsenal fans and people working in football which of the three competitions that Arsenal are still in offers the best chance of a piece of silverware to finally stop the media and fans of rival clubs banging on about the trophy drought, I think the outcome would be overwhelmingly the FA cup.
With last year’s treble winners Bayern Munich, who are also running away with the Bundesliga and can fully focus on the two games, coming up in the Champions League, Arsenal need to be at their very best and hope Bayern have an off night. But we have to face them with a tiring squad which is missing two of it’s most dangerous players in Walcott and Ramsey. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal have the best defence in the Premier League, bar none. It has been a long time since that was true, because for most of the years under Arsene Wenger, the Gunners have tended to focus more on the creative and attacking side of football. It is not as if Wenger has changed his style of play this season, but the defensive side has really improved. .......Read the full article here
There has been a lot of speculation about Arsenal and what Arsene Wenger will do in the January transfer window. And apart from a striker to challenge and support Olivier Giroud up front, most Arsenal fans would agree that the next big position we are concerned with is the right back.
I am not going to discuss the merits of Carl Jenkinson, because the main problem Arsenal have is Bacary Sagna. The France international has been brilliant for us this season after a struggling a bit coming back from injury last time. We would love him to stay, but his current contract expires next summer, so we have been hoping that Arsenal would offer him a good deal, for longer than just a year, to make sure we keep him. .......Read the full article here
Jenkinson isn’t as bad as everyone makes out! by Ash
Since Carl Jenkinson joined Arsenal back in 2011, the right sided defender has endured a relatively tough time at the club. He has had to put up with stick from the fans during a distressed period of time, whilst his own playing ability has also been the cause for concern on several occasions during the two and a half years he has been with the Gunners. And because of Sagna’s form he is not getting many chances in the team. .......Read the full article here
It would be understandable if there were a lot of nerves in the Arsenal camp this week ahead of a crunch clash against Napoli in the fierce atmosphere of the San Paolo stadium, especially when you consider what is at stake. Depending on the result of Wednesday’s game, the Gunners could stay top of the group, slip to second or even crash out into the Europa League. .......Read the full article here
This is a massive game for Arsenal against Everton, especially when you consider that the next two Premier League games are away to Man City and at home to Chelsea. A win today would give the Gunners the breathing space to lose both those games and still be on top of the table.
But Everton are coming fresh from an away win at Old Trafford and so will be full of belief. Roberto Martinez has named an unchanged side from that win over United, but the good news for us is that, with Sagna missing from the Arsenal team, one of their most dangerous players, Leighton Baines, is injured and so Carl Jenkinson will not come under as much pressure as he might have done. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal face the first game in a tough run on Sunday, no disrespect to Hull City, with a Premier League game at the Emirates against 5th placed Everton. Arsene Wenger will not want to take any chances, but the way that players like Monreal and Bendtner slotted seamlessly into the side in the last game should give the manager confidence that rotating is not risking the game. .......Read the full article here
