FA set to rename FA Cup as “The Arsenal Cup”!!

Arsenal are the current holders of the FA Cup after beating Wigan last year, and are hot favourites to retain the trophy when they face Aston Villa next month at Wembley. If they do emerge victorious then we will have the record amount of successes in the competition with and to commemorate that fact, the FA have decided to rename it “The Arsenal Cup”…….. lol

Okay I’m only joking, they could never do that to the oldest Cup Competition in the World, but they ARE set to name it “The Emirates FA Cup” as our own club sponsors have decided to pay to have their name on the publicity. According to reports they are going to pay £30million for a three-year deal, to add to their contracts with clubs like Arsenal and PSG.

This season’s competition was left without a sponsor as the Football Association failed to find a replacement for Budweiser after their deal last year, and they are actively looking to finalise a new arrangement before the Final next month. A spokesman for the Football Association said: “We continue to remain in discussions with a number of parties about FA Cup partner opportunities.” but the report says that the “Emirates Airlines are confident of securing a three-year sponsorship.”

This can only be good news for the Gunners as we generally do well in “The Emirates Cup” every year so it will be like playing home-from-home for the next three seasons. We will have already played two Finals in a row with the Emirates on our jerseys, so maybe we can repeat the feat for the next three years as well.

In fact I think we’ll do the Double every year!

      Apparently its true. there is a rumour £30 million deal. For a name change.

      Off topic
      is any one worried about our under 21? they are getting beating by every jack and gill. What is the problem with our recruitment? chelsea spurs and saints are producing monsters.

      I watch the under 21 game Vs reading and Steve gatting said jack wilshere was absolutely fantastic. But that worries me when a player that has been out for 5 months is playing 10 times better than the guys at the under 21 who have been playing everyday. jack is 23 and those under 21 players are 20 and 21 years old. they may all earn up to be league 1 quality.

      Is our recruitment poor? Since Jack CoQ and Gibbs no body has made a transition to first team. God help our academy.

    Hope Wenger does some handy business this summer.

    We could loan out Welbeck to gain lone striker experience and invest in a good striker to compete with Giroud.

    Get another CB and loan out Chambers or sell Mert.

    Top Gk

    And someone to challenge Coq.

    We will be set

    Opinions divided. What do you think? Thumb up 5 Thumb down 15

      Loan out welbeck? I don’t know if the heat is getiing to everyone or we all seem to be on drugs at thesame time.The guy just had his first season at arsenal and will get better why loan him. This guy could act as cover for all the 3 positions up front. Knowing our bad luck with injuries keeping welbeck is key.

      GK Ospina / Sir Scz / martinez

      RB Bellerini/ debuchy and jekinson
      LB Nacho / Gibbs
      CB Boss / Per / Gabrielle / Chambers.

      DM COQ / New Signing??????????? Schiniderlin
      B2b Rambo/ Jack
      AM Cazorla/ Ozil

      Rw Theo /OX and Wellington Silva
      LW Sanchez/ Welbeck

      Striker Giroud / New Signing Lacazette

      I will add 2 players to this team in the summer. Lacazette and Morgan schiniderli.

      That is 2 players per position above. chelsea won the league with 3 CB in JT cahill and Zouma . we have 4 CB. the squad is good to go. No need disrupting the balance. We are ready for an assault next season.

      Players out.
      Podolski Arteta Flamini Cambell Sanogo Diaby

      Guardiola’s Bayern contract runs out next seasons, Wenger’s in 2017. So unless Wenger leaves early or Pep takes a year off it won’t happen.

    Players to leave and why.

    1) Podolski. he earns 100K and truth be told Ox Theo sanchez welbeck even rambo and ozil are ahead of him out wide. Podolski can’t play at the intensity the new arsenal is playing with sanchez as leader of the pack of wolves. If they say you are lazy in Italy then you are in trouble in ENngland with the pace of the game.

    2)Sanogo I mean when u are 3rd choice at Palacebehind Murray and Chamark then you should be far from arsenal as possible. Lille is his level.

    3)Arteta. A captain needs to play. U can’t have a captain and don’t play them. We saw with vaminator and it was bad. Moreove we can’t justfiy buying Sciniderlin or kongdobia and keeping arteta.
    4) Flamini. he is poor. Its that simple. he does everything on the pitch apart from playing. pointing fingers and doing fxxxxx off. he left us for milan when we needed . we should never have signed him. he loves a free transfer. he is free isn’t he? lol

    5) Campbell. he has a good thing happening for him in spain. no need bringing him and sitting his ass on the bench. Villarreal are a good club. good luck to him

    6) Diaby . he is like a new signing. But come on i think we have tried with him. i wish him all the best of luck. A slower league will do him a hell loads of good. Good man.

    Players to loan.

    1) jekinson. Debuchy don’t have many days at the club. I see bellerin as my number 1. We should loan jekinson for 1 more season. He’s had a good year at westham.
    2)Gnarby. he needs to play. championship or saints with europa league games on loan.
    3)Beilik

    Ramsey on the wings, that’s the only thing that I’m thinking about 🙁

    Tranfers in: Cech, Lacazette, Kondogbia
    Transfers out: Szczesny, Walcott, Diaby, Flamini, Arteta, Wilshere(if City want to pay 30mill)
    Loans out: Jenkinson (if possible), Gnabry

    Startling XI next season (4-2-3-1)
    Cech
    Bellerin-Mert-Kos-Monreal
    Coquelin-Ramsey
    Lacazette-Ozil-Alexis
    Giroud

    2nd XI (4-3-3)
    Ospina
    Debuchy-Chambers-Gabriel-Gibbs
    Cazorla-Kondogbia-Rosicky
    Ox-Lacazette-Welbeck

    Lacazette in 2nd XI because he would be our backup striker if Giroud were out. And i expect Gabriel to eventually take Mertesackers spot at some point next season. Our teams not far away from being good enough, but some signings NEED to be made.

        Koscielny-Mertesacker partnership still rarely disappoints. He’s a great defender despite usually being the scapegoat when the whole team plays poorly. Also, we have 4 CB’s at this point, no way we are realistically going to start the season with 5. And realistically Mertesacker isn’t going to be sold.

        1. No Giroud, I'm happy

          no no not scapegoat or anything … Can’t you see that our defense is all about Kos and we suffer when he is injured … Kos deserves better partner … I remember Monreal and Debuchy made a better CB than Mert …

            Debuchy played there one game, and Monreal was not better at all. Also remember this was when Flamini played in front of the defense. The defense is not all Koscielny either. Every time Mertesacker has a good game and wins all his headers nobody mentions it.Mertesacker is not as bad as everyone makes him out to be. I tried to make a starting XI that was somewhat realistic. Us buying a CB this summer is not realistic because we have 4 of them already. And us selling Mertesacker is also unrealistic as well. If we are not going to be realistic here I might as well have thrown Suarez in as striker and Reus as a winger. I said in my post Gabriel will most likely take over Mertesacker at some point next season, but why should we start the season with an unfamiliar Cb partnership, when we already have a proven one?

    It’s a disgrace. The FA are ruining the FA Cup. I don’t want it called the Emirates Cup. It should always be called the FA Cup. The FA played a semifinal against Chelsea v Man Utd. The FA have played the Final at late times. The FA are slowly ruining a traditional Football Cup for the sake of a few extra quid.
