Why Arsenal fans should NOT worry about Higuain report in Marca

The transfer of Gonzalo Higuain to Arsenal is certainly dragging on a lot longer than it should have done, but it has not hit the wall, contrary to the widely repeated report in the Spanish newspaper Marca. The problem for Arsenal is that we have to dance to Real Madrid’s tune a little bit until the deal is completed.

Arsenal and Higuain agree terms but Real Madrid want more money

After weeks of speculation, media rumours and reports, a lot of Arsenal fans are beginning to get suspicious and wonder why the transfer of Gonzalo Higuain has not been completed yet. After the club’s recent performances in the transfer windows, Gooners are also starting to wonder whether it is going to happen at all.

There is no major problem, however, according to Marca. The Spanish newspaper has very close connections with Madrid and they have reported that Arsenal are expected to sign the Argentinean striker, but Madrid are just waiting for a suitable offer.

Real Madrid reject? Higuain stats should have Arsenal fans buzzing!!

There is definitely some sort of pattern with Arsenal fans and transfer rumours, which some University professor with too much time on his hands should study and publish as a survey. A working title could be, `Arsenal arsing about causes Gooners grief`. There is certainly a tendency with us to overreact to possible transfer targets.

A player can go from being the best thing since sliced bread to being worse than useless in the blink of an eye. Recent examples have been Yann M’Vila and Stevan Jovetic, and there seems to be a building swell of negativity about the Real Madrid and Argentina striker Gonzalo Higuain. As the transfer gets closer and seems ever more likely, some fans start to question his ability and wonder whether we are being fobbed off with a dud by Madrid.

Arsenal face Real battle as Madrid join Rooney race

The reported Arsenal target Wayne Rooney is apparently due for showdown talks with his former mentor and new manager at Manchester United David Moyes. This means that the Gunners will soon know whether or not the England international is even available this summer. If he is for sale, however, then the job of signing him has just got a little bit harder, after Real Madrid have decided to join the list of suitors.

The new Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti, was keen to take Rooney to PSG and he will have a much better chance of getting his target with Madrid’s money and pulling power. The temptation to link up again with his former strike partner Cristiano Ronaldo could be the deciding factor.

Arsenal to sign Bayern left back as a defensive midfielder?

The Arsenal fans are quite used to seeing Arsene Wenger mess about with players and their positions, sometimes with great success, so maybe we shouldn’t be too surprised to heat that the French manager is considering signing a left back as the Gunners’ new defensive midfielder.

David Alaba is the Austrian international who is currently riding high after winning the Champions League, Bundesliga title and the German version of the FA cup with Bayern Munich. So you would think the chances of getting the 20-year old to leave his current club were zero to very small. According to the Daily Star, however, that is just what Wenger is thinking of doing.

Now is the time for Arsenal to sign David Villa

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.

Arsenal target will cost €100m say Montpellier!?!

Rub your eyes, Arsenal fans, pinch yourself and splash your face with cold water, then read the headline again. Is it still the same? Yes, and it is not April 1st, so what on Earth is going on? Maybe whoever wrote this story originally had shaky hands from the night before, or his dog barked as he was typing and he hit an extra zero, because 100 million euros is silly money for anybody, never mind Remy Cabella.

Montpellier have had a shocking follow up season the their historic title win last year. They finished ninth, a massive 28 points behind the champions PSG, and it seems to have affected the sanity of their deputy chairman, Laurent Nicollin.

Have Arsenal really got the Finances right?

Are Arsenal doing the right thing with their money? by SS

Everybody knows that the club rarely spend money so they end up making a profit during a transfer window, but is this tight spending the reason there is no success at the club anymore?

Financial fair play rules have been introduced by UEFA which should stop clubs from spending a lot more money than they earn in a season. The biggest offenders of this rule are clubs such as Chelsea and Manchester City who have spent over £150 Million in past transfer windows.

Arsenal target top scorer in Champions League

Possibly the best thing about the Arsenal attack this season is the versatility and number of options available to Arsene Wenger. With Giroud, Podolski, Walcott and Gervinho there is a mix of pace, power, trickery, shooting, aerial ability and wing play. Perhaps the one thing the Gunners attack is really lacking is clinical finishing, and that may be why Arsenal have been keeping a close watch on the natural goalscorer who is currently joint top scorere in the Champions League this season.

Arsenal have more star players than Spurs-They need to step up!

Arsene Wenger has called on the big name players at Arsenal to show their class against Tottenham, and prove that Arsenal have much more strength across the team than their North London rivals. Most of the talk in the media in the build up to the game has been about Gareth Bale, which is not that surprising given the scoring run he is on, but Wenger has gently reminded people that football is not all about individuals.

Why Wilshere will be world class!

Arsenal fans knew they were seeing something special when Jack Wilshere returned from a loan spell at Bolton Wanderers. He played 49 games for the Gunners in that breakthrough season of 2010/2011, including an awesome display against Barcelona in the Champions league. However, 17 months out of the game with injury, coupled with an immense burden of expectation would normally have a serious eeffect on a young player’s form.

Wilshere’s increasingly dominant performances and his outstanding display for England against Brazil have proved that this will not happen to our Jack, so what makes him so special? The famous inventor Thomas Edison coined the phrase `Genius in one percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration`, and Bacary Sagna has revealed that Wilshere has an unbelievable work ethic for a young player.

Walcott will be world class soon!

Theo Walcott is on the verge of greatness by NS

I’m sure a few of you Arsenal fans have read the headline and are picking yourselves off the floor. I can understand that. Really. Theo, since arriving as a schoolboy from Southampton has hardly lived up to our expectations until this season. He has shown flashes. We all remember that run against Liverpool in the Champions League and I thought he had arrived then. I was wrong. We all were.
