There were a lot of things that Arsenal needed to do right to stand a chance of overturning the home leg defeat against Barcelona when we met again in the Nou Camp tonight. As well as Barca not being at their best, the Gunners had to perform at our own top level.
WHO? WHAT? WHERE? WHY IS ONE CALLED “WORLD CLASS”? by JA
Hey everyone, this transfer window being the usual… huh? Smoke and mirrors from the boss, what’s not to like?
So we’ve only signed a 33 year old Czech Republic goal keeper, shirt 33 who’s played 333 games in the premier league, and we’re going steady. People though believe we should sign another two top players to challenge for the league .I don’t know if that’s right or wrong but that’s their opinion.
If reports from the Spanish media are to be believed, Arsenal are in ‘advanced talks’ with the representatives of Barcelona forward Pedro Rodriguez ahead of a potential move in January. The Spanish international is said to be unhappy over his limited opportunities at the Nou Camp and is understood to be willing to quit the club in order to secure first-team football.
It may be that Wayne Rooney stays where he is this summer, but if he was to leave then Arsenal were rumoured to near the front of the queue of clubs hoping to sign him. There are only a few clubs that could meet the conditions of the England striker, including transfer fee, wage demands and being in the Champions League. The fact that Rooney would not have to adjust to a new country and new league should also be an advantage for the Gunners.
Arsenal to raid Barcelona? by Stefan
Two weeks ago Marseille declared interest in Arsenal “deadwood” winger Gervinho who has failed to win the love of Arsenal fans in his two year career at Arsenal. Most fans would happily see the back of him at this point and if they do I believe Arsenal can capitalize on a situation in Spain.
It might be just as well that Arsenal are currently being linked with every footballer and his dog as the rumour mill really gets underway for this summer’s transfer window dealings. Two of the reported long term transfer targets for the Gunners have given Arsene Wenger some bad news after suggesting that they may be staying where they are.
Arsenal should get Villa from Barcelona by SS
Brazilian Star Neymar finally sealed a move to European football in the last few days after years of holding off a move in favour of his boyhood club Santos. At some point in Neymar’s career he has been linked with nearly every top club in Europe but in the end it came down to Real Madrid and Barcelona, he chose Barcelona so he could fulfil his dream of forming a partnership with Lionel Messi.
There have been reports linking Arsenal with a number of strikers around Europe, and it seems clear that the club’s scouts are working overtime to draw up a list of transfer targets for the summer. Arsene Wenger is believed to have around £70 million available to splash out on some quality for the team, but that does not mean that he will not still try to sniff out a bargain or two.
