How can Wenger compare Arsenal transfers to Chelsea and United? Is he mad?

Comparisons of Arsenal, Chelsea and United. by Ash

I read in a recent interview with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, that he once again compared us to the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United. Normally it’s in the aspect of being able to compete alongside them in the league, however this time it was more heavily featured around transfers.

It’s the end of the Arsenal line for Chamakh

Arsenal striker Maroune Chamakh is close to securing a move away from the Emirates, as he looks set to link up with fellow London club and Premier League newcomers Crystal Palace on an initial six month loan deal.

Is Wenger right to let Arsenal youngster go to Palace?

Campbell to Palace by Stefan

Arsenal’s young Costa Rican striker Joel Campbell has finally got clearance to live and play football in England and by the looks of things he will be playing Premier League football next season, not with Arsenal but with newly promoted Crystal Palace.

Pearce still hoping to get Arsenal star for England

Stuart Pearce has lost his battle with Roy Hodgson over the Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, but the manager of the England under 21 side is still hoping to get another Gunner from the first team to join his squad for the European Championship in Israel this summer.

Arsenal could tempt Nani from Man United this summer!

Arsenal are ready to do some squad improvement, with Arsene Wenger set to have £70 million burning a hole in the pockets of his giant coat.  There is room for improvement all over the pitch, so it will be interesting to see what Wenger thinks are the priorities. It sounds a lot, but £70 million does not buy many quality players these days, and there is no point buying squad players because we have plenty. One player who could add quality and extra options to the Arsenal team and who would not cost a bomb is the Portuguese international winger Luis Nani from Manchester United.

Wenger explains why Arsenal couldn’t buy more in January

Arsene Wenger brought in the Malaga defender Nacho Monreal in January, but he is adamant that although he searched far and wide to find more quality players they were simply not available!

Arsenal’s Wilshere streets ahead of others says England boss

The news will not surprise Arsenal fans, but could be seen as a bit of a kick in the teeth for some of the other young players in the England international set up. Roy Hodgson has picked a squad to face Brazil in a friendly next week, but has left out a number of younger players, who will drop back down to the under 21s for the upcoming European championships this summer. Wilshere is not one of them, because he has already proved himself for club and country.

It’s not easy for Arsenal to find quality players in January….

Being Realistic – By LmFaO

Let’s take a realistic look at the January Transfer Window. To start off with, Arsenal were looking in serious need of some firepower. Some real quality players. Many players were linked with Us over the last few weeks. Some of them being Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Adrian Lopez, Fernando Llorente, Edinson Cavani, David Villa, Mario Gotze, Stevan Jovetic, Mats Hummels and the list goes on… After a disastrous start to the month, the fans were screaming on top of their voice for some new signings, but to no avail.
