I really hope that there is a perfectly good reason for the Arsenal and Spain international midfield star not being with his team mates at London Colney this week as Arsene Wenger and his coaching staff begin the preparations for next season with the start of pre-season training.
Why not try this? by Gunnerjack
I know what follows is very experimental and could cost us but I think we’ve got to try something to get out of our present slump. I think the following starting lineup (if all players fit) would do 3 things:
It is a stressful day for Arsenal fans in the transfer market. With tumbleweeds blowing past the Emirates stadium and a deafening silence coming form Arsene Wenger, London rivals and the hated Jose Mourinho have signed our former captain Cesc Fabregas.
It has been a strange season for Santi Cazorla with Arsenal this season. The Spaniard who was so brilliant in his debut season with the Gunners has failed to hit the same heights that earned him the fans’ vote for Arsenal Player of the Year last time, for whatever reasons, but he turned the clock back with a Man of the Match showing against the Hammers.
Why Fabregas will never go to Man United. by JH
I notice that a lot of Arsenal fans seem to be worried about Cesc going to United, there’s a number of reasons why this will never happen.
However much fans groups try, or Wenger calls for respect, there will be no doubting the feeling of many Arsenal fans about Robin van Persie when Manchester United come to the Emirates on Sunday. The Arsemal players, however, need to try to ignore what is going on in the stands and not get caught up in the emotion.
Arsenal travel to Stamford Bridge on Sunday to face Chelsea in a game that could have a huge saying on the season for both clubs. The Gunners are coming off the back of the best performance in a while, knowing that a win will put us just five points behind Chelsea with a game in hand. The Blues, on the other hand, are in a bad way. The Blues have lost two and drawn one of their last three home games against Southampton, Swansea and QPR.
Arsenal shouldn’t sign Pepe Reina. by KJ
There have been rumours lately that Arsenal are after Spain international, Pepe Reina. He used to be a brilliant player in a solid Liverpool side but has lost his way as the quality in front of him has dropped. Is he really the best keeper for Arsenal? Not at all.
