Arsenal’s latest confirmed target Yohann Cabaye has been left out of the Newcastle squad while the negotiations continue with the Gunners. The Toon boss Alan Pardew has criticized Arsene Wenger for destabilising his the French midfielder and also for puttting in an unacceptable bid for his player, and is now telling the Gunners that they are running out of time to come up with a realistic bid for Cabaye.
Pardew said: “If Arsenal want to sign the player they’re going to need to sign him soon because at some point we’re just going to say no. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal Debate: If Wenger goes, who do we bring in? by Spendah.
Some of you may notice me lingering around on this site. I post some comments every now and then but this is my first article so please don’t be too harsh. Many of you gooners have been calling for Wenger’s head (me included), but if he does leave, then who do we bring in? I’d reckon before the Villa game about 70% of us wanted Wenger out but now about 40-50% want Wenger out of the club. In this article, I’ll thoroughly assess our options for a replacement manager. .......Read the full article here
Every Arsenal fan is totally aware that the Gunners have a certain list of players on the wage bill that are simply not good enough to wear the Red & White, and are extremely unlikely to even get another game for the first team ever, but worryingly, Arsene Wenger does not expect any of them to be leaving the Emirates at the moment.
Wenger said: “I don’t envisage any other departures at the moment unless others come in.”
“On that front we are working very hard – I won’t give you numbers or names of players, and I don’t want to give false hope, but we are trying.” .......Read the full article here
Former legend says that Giroud will shine by AM
Former Arsenal great Robert Pires has said that, with time, Giroud will shine through. The Frenchman said that, even though Arsenal have lost some important players, Wenger will replace them eventually. Pires said – “It takes time to adapt, and it is especially hard for attacking players, but I am optimistic that both Giroud and Podolski can be a success. I have seen Giroud playing in France and he has the qualities you need in England. He is strong and he has a good touch. He can be like Van Persie in my opinion. .......Read the full article here
There is obviously going to be a lot of anger from Arsenal fans after the news that Van Persie has moved to our biggest historical rivals Manchester United, after inferring that there was no way he would move to another Premiership club.
But what really annoys me is that just THREE days ago Wenger stated that he still wanted to keep Van Persie, and that Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud were brought in to play alongside RVP to help the Gunners go for trophies. Here is his exact words: “Robin scored 30 goals last season and you want to keep your best player. He was player of the year in England. We want to keep him. I cannot tell you more at the moment because I don’t know more. .......Read the full article here
Baines, Valbuena, Cahill and Samba, not Barton and Doyle! by Kalvin Ovsiowitz
I will start by saying that this is not a rant nor an article about the idiocy that is the Arsenal board, but about who we need to buy to keep us fans from going beserk.
Yesterday all Arsenal fans said goodbye to a beloved player of the team, Gael Clichy. He was the last remaining player of The Invincibles and has been a key player at the club for the last 8 years. He’s helped Kieran Gibbs progress through the ranks at the club and played a big part in getting Samir Nasri (who I personally am not too fond of anymore) to join the Gooners from Marseille. The fee may be ‘undisclosed’ (£7 million) but everyone that knows how good a player he is would say the City got him for a bloody bargain. .......Read the full article here
Storm in a tea cup! by Toby Leach
Well it all seems to be doom and gloom at the moment so lets see if we can bring this whole debacle back down to earth and get to the meat of it!
As the media circus gathers momentum and tries to derail the Gunners lets look at the real health of our beloved club going into preseason training.
Lets start with the Cesc-sesment of Fab, we all know this guy’s quality and he has for many years been one of our best players, but many fans like myself are slowly coming to terms with the fact that one average player that wants to play for you is worth ten world class players that don’t! .......Read the full article here
So exactly what should Arsenal look like at the start of 2011/2012 season? by Abdul
First of all selling Chamakh (£13m) Squillaci (£5m) Denilson (£8m), Bendtner (£10M), Eboue (£8m) and Almunia (£5m) would see the team generate roughly £50m. The board, in particular new owner Stan Kroenke I would hope, should give Wenger another £30m in addition to spend. This would mean £80m for Wenger to spend in the summer. Although i dont see Arsenal splashing this amount of money in one single transfer window.
So who should Wenger replace these incompetent players with? .......Read the full article here
