THE SEASON THAT ARSENAL MUST BE THE DIFFERENT ANIMAL IS 2016/17 by NO
Is Wenger’s job as manager about to get a lot harder? by Ash
On a day where Arsenal had to hand their crown of FA CUP holders back, after two years at the helm, Manchester United once again closed the gap for the record number of Cup wins! After the final match, several sources including the BBC and Sky Sports confirmed that Jose Mourinho will be taking over as manager of Manchester United.
Liverpool lost in last night’s Europa League final, mean they will go into the new season without European football of any sort, and that could play into the hands of Arsenal.
The Merseyside club lost to Seville 3-1 last night, after taking a 1-0 lead into the half-time break, and will be strongly disappointed to have ended the season with only an eighth place finish to boast of.
Arsenal fans will be hoping that the blue half of Merseyside can do us a favour, with Roberto Martinez taking his Everton side to face our main Premier League rivals Man City. And with Pellegrini missing key players like Kompany, Mangala, Fernandinho, Bony and Nasri there is a decent chance.
Next few games could decide our title credentials by KM
Hello fellow Gooners. Excited about the return of the League? It’s this time of the year, where matches come thick and fast and in a span of a week you can jump up or down with a few positions. So the fixture list sees three very difficult games coming up.
Arsenal face a tricky trio of League games starting tonight at Anfield, and the outcome of these tests could prove decisive in proving Arsenal’s credentials as title contenders, according to the ex-Arsenal star Paul Merson.
Arsenal head to Anfield in fine fettle and with a lot of confidence. We have just got through to the next round of the FA cup with a comfortable victory over Premier League opponents in Sunderland. We also pulled off a miraculous rescue mission to stay in the Champions League although I do not want to think about our next two European games against the might of Barcelona right now.
Jurgen Klopp arrived at Liverpool with an impressive reputation after building Borussia Dortmund into a team capable of challenging Bayern Munich (and also beating Arsenal a couple of times!), and Arsene Wenger respects the German for that and is expecting a tough match when they meet each other in the Premier League for the first time tomorrow night.
