Arsenal will NOT change approach for Chelsea! Oh Dear!

When Arsenal travelled to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea in the Premier League in late March, we ended up with our biggest defeat of the season. And after that 6-0 humbling, made even worse by the fact that it was a landmark day for Arsene Wenger and was completely ruined by his arch enemy Jose Mourinho, it was clear that our tactics had been wrong.

The Gunners had already done it before at Anfield, but we did not learn from that thrashing by Liverpool and just repeated the mistake against Chelsea. An early goal saw us throw players forward on the attack and that just opened us up to more goals at the wrong end.

Wenger reveals why he doesn’t lose the plot with Arsenal players!!

It can be frustrating for Arsenal fans at times, when the team or a particular player have just come off the pitch after an absolute shocker. Unlike some managers (cough, cough Mourinho and Fergie I’m looking at you) the man we call the Prof is always supportive of his Gunners.

To be fair to the Frenchman, he has always been fairly calm after the fact, even though he has sometimes let his emotions boil over on the touchline. But the boss has revealed in an Arsenal.com report that he thinks it has become even more important in the modern game to treat the players and staff he works alongside with more respect.

Arsenal set to lose Loic Remy to Chelsea

There are reports this morning that Arsenal are attempting to hijack Chelsea’s move for the French striker Loic Remy, but we all know that Arsene Wenger had three months to meet the Frenchman’s buy-out clause of just 8.5million but has only now decided to take action after Olivier Giroud was ruled out for the next three months.

But alas, it’s too late, as Jose Mourinho has already admitted that he straight away started talking to Remy as soon as he knew that Fernando Torres was on his way to AC Milan. The Chelsea boss said: “Today I told my people in the club that I have no news until the end of the game,”

Costa injury makes striker transfer even harder for Arsenal

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Arsenal will have to do without Olivier Giroud leading the line for around four months after the Frenchman fractured his left tibia at the end of the Everton game, but at least the timing of the injury gives the boss a few days to bring in a replacement.

But while he did not state categorically that he would not be doing so, Wenger suggested that he would only bring in another forward if it made sense and gave us a better option than the players we already have give us. He also said that there was a shortage of quality available in the market and too many clubs looking.

Jose Mourinho AGREES with the Arsenal Boss for a change!

The annoying Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is usually running Arsene Wenger down in one way or another, but I have finally found a subject that they both agree on. The Arsenal boss has been complaining about the Premier League not delaying the start of the season, so as to give the players enough time to recover.

Arsenal have had to give his World Cup Winners from Germany extra time off to recover from their exertions and this is why Wenger is annoyed. Wenger told Setanta: “We could have done with one week later in all the competitions,”

Arsenal only need Mourinho to motivate us towards trophies!

Can Arsene Wenger prove Jose Mourinho wrong once again? by SE

“He is a specialist in failure. 8 years without a piece of silverware, that is failure” were the words coming from the putrid Portuguese, who didn’t fail to mince his words when he held parties for journalists on Friday evenings as part of pre-match press conferences. And, it was rubbing salt into the wounds for Wenger, when he took Arsenal to Stamford Bridge for the reverse fixture and saw his side lose 0-6 in Wenger’s 1000th game with Arsenal. But when the curtains were drawn on the 2013/14 campaign, the reality came to the fore. Arsene Wenger – ‘Specialist in failure’ clinched the FA cup and ‘The special one’ – Mourinho ended the season empty-handed. Following in the same vein, Can Arsene Wenger prove Mourinho wrong once again?

Fantastic Arsenal transfer news on Khedira, Vidal and more!

For quite a while now, it has not been the easiest job in the world to be an Arsenal fan. Not only have we had to endure the club’s slide from the pinnacle of becoming the only team not to lose a single game in a Premier League season, but have had to bite our tongues as the fans of our rivals take the mickey.

And they have had good reason. Chelsea, Man United, Liverpool and Man City have all been able to make fun of Arsenal in recent years, which makes it all the more sweet when us Gooners have good reason for laughing at them. So here are some nice little morsels for you, Arsenal fans, from the recent transfer rumours.

Will Khedira really snub Chelsea and become Arsenal’s top earner?

It looks like Arsenal could soon have five World Cup winning players in the squad, when previously it was only our Spanish midfield maestro Santi Cazorla with one of FIFA’s top medals to his name.

After Germany beat Argentina in extra time on Sunday night, three more Gunners joined Cazorla, and according to a Daily Star report, Mesut Ozil, Lukas Podolski and Per Mertesacker could soon be joined at the Emirates by their international team mate Sami Khedira.

Arsenal to lure Chelsea star across London? Dream On!!

There is a very unexpected Arsenal transfer rumour doing the rounds this morning. It involves a shock move by Arsene Wenger for the Serbian international defender Branislav Ivanovic. I am not surprised to hear that the Frenchman would like to sign the Serb, as reported by Metro, I just cannot see it happening.

While I think he is a great player who would be a fantastic replacement for both Thomas Vermaelen and the departing Bacary Sagna, with the ability to play at right back or in the middle, he is the same age as the French international so the club would have the same reluctance to offer Ivanovic more than the two years offered to Sagna.

Fabregas looking for success with Chelsea after Arsenal rejection

Arsenal´s old El Capitan has confirmed that Arsene Wenger simply rejected to exercise the Gunners famous “buy-back” option when Cesc Fabregas decided it was time to leave Barcelona, but is now looking to be “phenomenally successful” at our bitter rivals Chelsea.

Fabregas revealed that in his conversations with Wenger,the Frenchman made it clear that Mesut Ozil was the new Main Man in the Arsenal midfield, and there was no longer a place in the Arsenal side for the 27 year-old. Fabregas said: “There came a moment when I decided my time at Barcelona was over and I only tried to look for the best option for me.

Khedira! Can Arsenal finally beat Chelsea to a transfer target?

I am glad that Arsenal are not a club that has bought it’s way to football glory, and that Arsene Wenger has done more for the Gunners, English football and many young footballers’ careers. But as much as we might feel a bit superior in some ways to the billionaire’s plaything that is Chelsea, it would be a lot nicer if we could occasionally beat them to one of our transfer targets.

Why Arsenal should NOT fight Everton for Eto’o transfer!

There is some Arsenal transfer news today that could be seen as bad news for the Gunners, but I personally do not think so. Because the Arsenal rumour linking us with a free summer transfer move for the Cameroon international striker Samuel Eto’o never seemed like a good idea to me.

The 33-year old may well have a point to prove to Chelsea, after Jose Mourinho’s snide comments about his age were caught on camera, but is that really enough of a reason to sign a striker. And he would not be cheap, even though we would not have to pay a transfer fee, because his wage demands are significant.
