Can Arsenal afford to let Fabianski leave in January?

Will we be saying goodbye to Fabianski in January? by Ash

One current Arsenal player that a lot of people seem to forget about despite his long standing service to the club is goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski. The Polish international goalkeeper has been with the club for some time now having joined the club back in 2007, but after failing to get into a regular starting place for Arsenal, the 28 year old is considering leaving the Gunners in the near future.

Will Arsenal snap up Scmeichel on a free transfer in summer?

Arsenal in for Leicester City man? by Ash

According to the media in England, Arsenal are contemplating whether to make a move for the son of a former world’s greatest. Kasper Schmeichel, who is the son of former Manchester United player and goalkeeping legend Peter Schmeichel, is out of contract with Npower Championship side Leicester City this summer and reports state that he will look for a move away from the Foxes, should they fail to achieve promotion this season.

Could Casillas be next Real Madrid star to join Arsenal?

Arsenal target looking for a move away! by Ash

The transfer window still may be a fair few months away but it doesn’t mean that the rumours stop flying out from the media, especially when Arsenal is involved. The Gunners are constantly being linked with players (because Wenger always seems to be on the lookout for talent!) and so there is some exciting news today that one Arsenal target has declared he could make a move away from his current club in the near future.

Is Viviano transfer behind Martinez exit from Arsenal?

It seems that, for the moment, Wojciech Szczesny has got the Arsenal number one jersey nailed down, but Arsene Wenger showed last year that he has no qualms about dropping the Polish international if his performances are not up to scratch.

Szczesny is well aware that there are two players ready and waiting for their chance. In fact, Lukasz Fabianski has already played one game this season, against West Brom in the Capital One cup, and he performed well. The other keeper is yet to make his Arsenal debut, having joined the Gunners on loan for the season, but Emiliano Viviano is not worried and is working hard to be ready when his chance does come.

Arsenal keeper transfer news – Guzan and Macey

The transfer rumours linking Arsenal with a large number and wide variety of goalkeepers has been going on for some time now, but they were especially fervent this summer. It is understandable really, because of the somewhat erratic performances of the young Polish international keeper Wojciech Szczesny, and the sale of Vito Mannone.

When the 27-year old Italian Emiliano Viviano was brought in on loan for the season in the last few days of the transfer window, it appeared that Wenger was happy to keep faith with Szczesny, and he has not been disappointed so far. The 23-year old is looking as sharp as he ever has and has spoken about how the wake-up call he got when Wenger dropped him last season has done its job.

End of the road for Arsenal and Fabianski?

What now for Fabianski? by Ash

Arsenal and Poland international goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski made his first start of the season in the Capital One Cup game against West Brom. Fabianski’s inclusion was a slight surprise with many thinking that summer loan signing Emiliano Viviano would get the nod ahead of Fabianski, however the Pole managed to get his season underway with a win after penalties against West Brom.

West Brom vs. Arsenal preview, prediction and team news

Arsenal vs West Brom match preview by Ash

Today Arsenal will come up against West Bromwich Albion in the Capital One Cup. Expected to be an interesting game, Arsenal will need to be on top form to beat West Brom, who of course will be going for the win in their own stadium, the Hawthorns.

Arsenal may be doing well in the league however with several players supposedly getting a rest for today’s game, which means Arsene Wenger, will allow some of the youngsters and fringe players to make an appearance and just see what they can do.

Arsenal to make Wholesale changes for Capital One Cup?

It looks like the Arsenal team that runs out on the pitch at West Brom on Wednesday, in our first Capital One Cup game of the season, is going to look very different to the starting XI we have been getting used to recently. To be honest, Arsene Wenger does not have a lot of choice in some areas, but he also has a tough decision to make on how much to risk.

Is Valdes still on Arsenal transfer target list?

I was among the many Arsenal fans who were surprised, if not amazed, that Arsene Wenger did not snap up the Brazilian international keeper Julio Cesar from QPR this summer. He would not have cost very much, because Harry Redknapp was keen to get him off the books in the Championship. When we sold Vito Mannone to Sunderland, it became even more important to sign another keeper, but it was not until deadline day that Arsenal announced the season long loan deal for Emiliano Viviano.

EXCLUSIVE – Szczesny talks about Arsenal keeper rumours, Tottenham and piano-playing!

Szczesny interview by Jools

The Arsenal and Poland international keeper Wojciech Szczesny was an unused substitute in both of his country’s international games recently, and afterwards he spoke to reporter Robert Blonski about a number of things that appeared in the Gazeta Wyborcza newspaper. Luckily for Just Arsenal, Jools has translated this for us and so we can look at what our Szczezzer said. He obviously spoke about Poland and his desire to win his starting place back, but we will concentrate on what he said about Arsenal.

Q. It was up the creek in March.

Szczesny vows to fight for his place as Arsenal’s Number One

I am not going to be too hard on Arsenal’s Polish international keeper Wojciech Szczesny. After all, he is still only 23-years old and has put in some stunning performances for the Gunners since making his first team debut against West Brom in a 2009 league cup game. Coincidentally, that could well be the same team that the new Gunners keeper Emiliano Viviano debuts against in the Capital One cup next month.

Has Wenger played a blinder with ALL 4 Arsenal signings?

II think it is safe to say that most Arsenal fans were far from happy with the summer transfer window until Arsene Wenger and his transfer team pulled off the signing of Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid. That last minute deal has got all the newspapers, football websites, pundits and commentators talking, but it doers seem to have made people forget about the other three new Arsenal players.
