Comparing Arsenal with Newcastle, Everton and Dortmund!

INTERESTING TIMES by AD

What happened at Swansea was so depressing that it brought pealing fit of laughter from me. Interestingly though we have three parallel propositions of varying circumstances and positions for an observer to finally take a subjective as well as objective call on the quality and competence of our Mr. Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal in the hunt for free-scoring hitman?

I was among the Arsenal fans who were not entirely convinced by one of the top transfer targets of the summer, Porto and Colombian international centre forward Jackson Martinez. It was looking like Arsene Wenger was going to finally firm up his interest, but that is now at serious risk after the Metro reported that Liverpool are planning a £30 million transfer bid in January to beat Arsenal to the punch, although that figure shouldnt be beyond our means nowadays.

Flamini and Chambers keys to Arsenal beating Anderlecht

Why Everton could be BIG threat to Arsenal again this season

At one point, the Toffees of Roberto Martinez were in pole position to beat Arsenal to the final Champions League spot.

Todays Arsenal rumours – Ruddy, Ospina, Martinez and Khedira

As always on a Sunday there is no shortage of Arsenal transfer rumours, and todays offerings include a couple of goalkeepers. The Mirror reckons that the Gunners have dropped interest in David Marshall because of the asking price, but are now going for another relegated keeper in Norwich’s John Ruddy.
