I know (in fact all Arsenal fans do) that it is a very dangerous thing to count your chickens before they are hatched, but this time around the Newcastle manager himself has admitted that he expects an extremely difficult game when the Gunners come to St. James Park this weekend, due to the lack of players at his disposal.
Arsenal VS Newcastle Preview by AH
Tomorrow Arsenal face Newcastle in the day’s 5.30PM kick off at the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal are on a 3 game winning streak and we will be looking to continue our rise to form against a team that, despite their poor run of form, have a very impressive team.
Well it is about time that Arsenal fans had something to cheer about today, as Sky Sports are reporting right now that the Gunners have put in a bid for Yohan Cabaye, and Newcastle have accepted it!
Arsenal are apparently preparing a £15 million offer for a midfielder from Newcastle United, but it is not the one we were expecting. Most Arsenal fans believe that a strong defensive midfielder is the priority for the Gunners, and we were being linked with Newcstle’s 26-year old Ivorian Cheick Tiote who is a tough tackling midfielder.
Arsene Wenger gave his reaction to the second goalless draw in a row, and believes that Arsenal should have got a win, but that the goals will soon come. It is just a matter of the players getting used to each other and clicking together, rather than not having the right players.
