Bad News Arsenal, Man Utd look good! Good News, Liverpool look doomed!

It is just as well that Arsenal have ended the trophy drought with the FA cup last season and that the club is now ready to give Arsene Wenger the money to spend on some top players, because other wise I think that the Gunners’ long run of years in the Champions League would be over.

Once again the Premier League looks harder to win, as almost all of the top teams strengthen their squads and reinforce the theory that England has the best league in the world. I know that the likes of Bayern Munich and the La Liga giants of Barcelona and Real Madrid have dominated European competition lately, but apart from a few rare occasions, their domestic league campaigns are pretty predictable.

Wenger shows Arsenal CLASS – Aldridge and Gerrard prove Liverpool CRASS

Arsenal have always had their fair share of rivals, as has Arsene Wenger since becoming manager of the Gunners back in 1996. There are the spuds of course, who have kindly failed to finish above us in all that time and show no signs of changing that anytime soon.

There are the teams and managers that have been major rivals for the silverware in that time. There are the foreighn teams like Barcelona that have poached some of our best players and their are the teams like Bolton and Stoke that have done their best to make sure those players cannot finish a game, and then there are those that just seem to want to wind us up, like Liverpool recently.

Liverpool are no threat to Arsenal this coming season!

Why Arsenal shouldn’t fear Liverpool next season by KJ

Liverpool last season were the best attacking team in the league and became lethal at around February. Unfortunately, Arsenal were the first club to experience their wrath at Anfield and succumbed to a heavy loss. Even the players didn’t understand how that had happened. We expected to control the game at Anfield and Liverpool punished us heavily. They’ve already spent £60million this summer and look to confirm the deals of a few more players this week. But even after all that, I don’t particularly fear them anymore and here’s why.

Rodgers reveals reason (he reckons) for Sanchez choosing Arsenal

Last summer definitely saw Liverpool get one over on Arsenal, with Arsene Wenger making the infamous bid for Luis Suarez of one pound over £40 million. That may or may not have triggered a release clause in the cannibalistic Uruguayan striker’s contract, but they stood firm and used the opportunity to take the mickey and show Arsenal plenty of disrespect along the way.

Liverpool admit that Alexis Sanchez is going to Arsenal!

There is excellent bit of Arsenal transfer news today as the local Liverpool rag the Liverpool Echo have reported that Alexis Sanchez has turned down a move to Anfield in favour of Arsenal.

This is a direct quote from the article:

Liverpool FC have been forced to admit defeat in their attempts to sign Barcelona attacker Alexis Sanchez.

The Reds held talks with the talented Chile international and hoped he would agree to be a makeweight in the Luis Suarez deal.

However, Anfield officials have been unable to convince Sanchez to make the move to Merseyside and they are resigned to the 25-year-old joining Premier League rivals Arsenal instead.

FIVE reasons Sanchez would choose Arsenal over Liverpool!

5 Reasons why Sanchez would pick Arsenal over Liverpool by KJ

The rumours today are that Barcelona officials are in London to negotiate the transfer of Suarez from Liverpool and Rodgers is asking for Alexis Sanchez to be included in the deal. However, it has also been reported that Sanchez doesn’t want to join Liverpool and would prefer joining Arsenal. With all this confusion, I felt like I needed to list 5 reasons why Sanchez would choose Arsenal over Liverpool.

Has Suarez come back to bite Arsenal over Sanchez transfer?

The Luis Suarez situation may have raised it’s ugly head again for Arsenal. After all the daftness of last summer, when the Gunners became the butt of many media jokes after our bid of £40 million and a pound was laughed off by Liverpool, Suarez could come back to bite us again this year.

Not that we are going to try to sign the Uruguayan striker again during this transfer window, because I think his third dental assault on a fellow footballer will have put Arsene Wenger off for good. The problem is that Barcelona do seem to want him and that has given Liverpool the edge in the transfer pursuit of the Chile international Alexis Sanchez.

Would Arsenal fans still want Luis Suarez?

The enigma of Luis Suarez? by AlexTheGooner

After the announcement by FIFA today regarding the Luis Suarez biting incident, with Giorgio Chiellini, is that Luis Suarez is to be banned from playing football and attending football matches for four months.

Who would want this outcast, because Liverpool certainly won’t, he’s a liability – To his club, to his teammates and to himself. But so was Robin van Persie before he joined Arsenal, you could put that down to him being a petulant young man at the time. Almost the same as Luis Suarez at this time in his career.

Alexis Sanchez would be perfect for Arsenal

How great it would be to have Sanchez at Arsenal by Blaz

We are a week away from July, a few weeks away from the end of World cup and from Arsenal presenting the new kit and main sponsor. We are, maybe, just a few days away from Arsenal.com presenting a new player for the team. But, of course, no-one (save Arsene Wenger) knows who that player/players might be.

One of the places we had difficulties in the past season was a fast and capable winger to take in all the Özil passes. We’ve also been missing a prolific striker to take some of the burden from Giroud.

Two BIG signs that point to Arsenal signing Benzema

Morning Arsenal fans. I did wonder, and wrote an article about it yesterday, whether the Champions League final would turn out to be the last time we saw Karim Benzema playing for Real Madrid. Little did I know, however, that those were just about the exact words uttered by the Arsenal boss as he commented on the game.

Arsene Wenger is known to have been a big fan of the French striker since he first broke through into the Lyon side as a teenager. According to a Daily Star report, Wenger dropped more than one hint about the Gunners signing the 26-year old from Real Madrid. As well as suggesting that Benzema was playing his last game for the European champions, the Prof said that people could expect to see the France international playing in the Premier League sooner or later.

Was that Arsenal target Benzema’s last game for Real?

There have been plenty of recent stories linking Arsenal with a possible transfer move for the Real Madrid and France striker Karim Benzema. And if the French striker was hoping to convince Carlo Ancelotti and his Madrid bosses that they do not need to look for another central striker, then last night’s Champions League final will not have helped his cause.

Real Madrid were not at their best against Athletico in the European final, needing a last minute equaliser from defender Sergio Ramos to take the game into extra time. Their attack up until that point was largely toothless, and Benzema was the least effectual of their forward players. Even in extra time, when they eventually made it look easy with a 4-1 final scoreline, Benzema never threatened to get on the score sheet.

Madrid WILL sell Benzema to Arsenal but will Wenger pay £40m?

I know that Arsenal have worked hard to get themselves in a great financial position, after Arsene Wenger kept the club in the Champions League while the debt for building the Emirates Stadium was paid off. So now the Frenchman is going to be rewarded with a big fat transfer war chest to ensure that the FA cup trophy was not a flash in a pan.

This means that Wenger will have the spending power to spend £40 million on a striker this summer, which is apparently what Real Madrid want for Karim Benzema. But I don’t think the France international will be playing for Arsenal next season.
