Do Arsenal REALLY need Petr Cech or Hugo Lloris? Perhaps as backup….

A new keeper was one of the four players declared by Thierry Henry to be vital for Arsene Wenger to add to the Arsenal squad this summer, to give the Gunners a real chance of winning the Premier League title. Whether you agree with our former striker and record goal scorer or not, the keeper question is definitely a big one for the boss to deal with.

Arsenal boosted by injuries to Chelsea and Spurs

Arsenal may not be in pole position in terms of points or places in the league, as the race for a top four finish hots up, but most other things seem to be going the way of the Gunners.

Barca believe that Arsenal will sign Valdes in summer

It is just a matter of time before Arsenal make Victor Valdes one of their summer signings, at least that is what officials at Barcelona think. The 31-year old keeper has until the end of the month to change his mind and sign a new contract with the runaway leaders of the Spanish Primera Liga. Valdes has obviously considered his decision and is unlikely to change it, so the club will sell him.

Don’t blame the Arsenal Defenders!

Defensive Frailties by PW

As you have invited thoughts from Gooners these are mine.

Sunday’s result was our local derby and means far more to them than us so I tend to dismiss it as another defeat and much less serious than defeats to Norwich (who were on the crest of a slump when we played them), Bradford and Blackburn which were morale sapping.

Arsenal strike fear into Spurs!

The race for the top four and qualification for next season’s Champions league is well and truly on. Arsenal passed the latest test and showed that they have more steel and determination than was evident earlier in the season. With the forward players all chipping in with goals, and the midfield combinations able to run rings round opposing players, a good defensive display means that all the factors are there for Arsenal to finish the season strongly.

Could Arsenal end Lloris’ Tottenham turmoil?

In one of the strangest transfer sagas of the summer, the French international keeper, Hugo Lloris, was priced out of a move to Arsenal by his French club Lyon. The demand was for £16 million which Arsenal refused to meet, even though they were keen on the keeper. He then joined Tottenham for around €10 million, which is about half what Arsenal were asked for, and it seems as if Tottenham don’t really want him that much.

Why would Arsenal want to buy Pepe Reina?

Arsenal shouldn’t sign Pepe Reina. by KJ

There have been rumours lately that Arsenal are after Spain international, Pepe Reina. He used to be a brilliant player in a solid Liverpool side but has lost his way as the quality in front of him has dropped. Is he really the best keeper for Arsenal? Not at all.
