I really hope that Arsene Wenger is playing mind games with the teams whose players Arsenal are hoping to sign, because the Frenchman has started to say things that send a cold shiver of dread running down the spine of your average Gooner.
Bayern Rebuffed by Ash
Wilshere has announced something that will give all Arsenal fans a sigh of relief after small reports speculated that perhaps Arsenal could lose one of their star players once again this summer. However this time around the player in question, Jack Wilshere was quick to diminish reports stating; “Obviously, I’m flattered. How can you not be? They’re the best team in Europe, but I’m an Arsenal player and I just signed a new deal. So right now all I’m focusing on is the upcoming season.”
There has been much talk of Arsenal’s record amount of funds in the transfer kitty this summer, but with the current squad ending the season with a brilliant ten-game unbeaten run Wenger seemed to hint that there is not much need for reinforcements to be brought in.

Where has our Arsenal gone? by AH
In the space of 8 years we have seen our club go from the edge of greatness, from consistently winning trophies every year and celebrating being arguably the best team of the world, to a team that struggles week in week out against much weaker opposition and we can now only dream of going far in competitions, let alone getting to the final and winning something.
I bet the Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis was cursing his luck after scheduling a meeting with Arsenal supporters for the day after the worst result in Arsene Wenger’s time at the Gunners. He probably thought that Wednesday night would be perfect because the fans would be happy to be in a semi-final with a good chance of some silverware after seven lean years, but it proved to be just the opposite.
