THere was some great news for Arsenal fans this week on the fitness of Hector Bellerin, after the young Spanish international defender had to miss out on the first Premier League game of the season with a thigh problem. Knowing the way that the Gunners have been hit by injury problems over the last few years, I for one was fearing a long spell on the sidelines.
With Arsenal really needing to bounce straight back from the shock and disappointment of losing our first Premier League game of the season against West Ham, it is perhaps a very good thing that our next match is against Crystal Palace.
There have been a fair few Arsenal transfer rumours in recent weeks concerning the future Arsenal careers of three of the current playing squad, so Arsene Wenger was asked by the press pack to clarify what the situation is with Nacho Monreal, Mathieu Flamini and Joel Campbell.
Arsenal are two players away from winning the EPL – Discuss by MA
Almost everyone seems to be agreeing with that statement, apart from the one person who really has the say, Arsene. Interestingly they are all pointing at a center foward and a recognized DM. So my question is, why do “we” think so?
The Questions for THE Quest by SB
The Quest for the title continues.
I believe this is the season where we are and will be considered serious title contenders. All the teams (title contenders) have strengthened and so did we. We strengthened defense. Petr Cech is the biggest part of this upgrade and Gabriel has settled in well and is raring to go. Regardless of transfers or no transfers we are a title team. (Hear me out).
The Arsenal left-back Nacho Monreal insists that he is happy at Arsenal and plans to fight for his place in the starting XI. He had an impactful season last year and hopes to replicate the form that appears to have prompted clubs in Spain to sit up and take notice.
Although it is a bit like waiting for a gunfight at High Noon for Arsenal fans and our transfer action at the moment, complete with tumbleweeds, nervous silence and the trickle of sweat down the top lip, there are still some Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds.
After a slightly less than impressive debut season for Arsenal, well half season as he joined us in the January transfer window, Nacho Monreal has really come good. Even with Kieran Gibbs fit and in form last season, the Spaniard had cemented his status as the first choice of Arsene Wenger.
