Arsenal veteran definitely NOT leaving!

Just days after the Arsenal star Tomas Rosicky hinted towards a move away from the club this summer, it has been confirmed that the Czech Republic international will remain at the Emirates for at least another season. The Daily Star and various other sources in the English media are reporting that Arsenal have activated an option to extend his contract after Gunners’ boss Arsene Wenger successfully persuaded him to stay, with the imminent arrival of Petr Cech said to be a crucial factor.

Following a campaign that Tomas himself labelled as ‘very difficult’ as a result of very limited first-team opportunities, there was a lot of talks in regards to the future of the veteran midfielder, especially after his boyhood club Sparta Prague made no secret of their desire to take him back home, with the club’s fans’ association also raising money to fund a move. But despite all that, Rosicky seems to have made up his mind to remain at Arsenal and can now look forward to a testimonial.

on if Rosicky will play a part in any Cech deal…
“Tomas Rosicky is not involved in the transfer market at all, he will be with us next season and we do not use the players for that.”
on certain players attracting players of same nationality…
“No, most of the time it is the players who want to join you who come in. Sometimes they might call each other but we do not get the players to interfere with that.”
on whether Rosicky will extend his own deal…

As one of the Little Mozart’s biggest fans, I am truly elated with the news. I believe he still has a good few years of football ahead of him and can still contribute so much to the team, so Wenger has definitely made the right call in giving him an extension. Also, with Arsenal having so many promising attacking midfielders coming through the ranks, Tomas can be a perfect mentor to the vast talent that Arsenal have in his position.

However, I really hope Wenger can make proper use of his talents next season. There were so many games this season where I thought Tomas can definitely stamp his authority and change the game for us. Let’s face it, when the team needs incisiveness and urgency in the final-third, there is no Arsenal player who can bring that quite like the Little Mozart can.

After what is shortly to be a decade at the club, it is very disappointing to realise that Tomas is yet to win the Premier League trophy with Arsenal. But with the team making significant progress this campaign and Wenger promising to spend, let’s hope Super Tom will finally get a Premier League winners’ medal next May.

  1. I’m glad about Rozza’s signing but doubt if Wenger will play him upto 10 times next season. He doesn’t like using the guy.

  2. I want Arsenal to win EPL Title Next Season to prove we r progressing as a club!

  3. Wenger should play 3at the back for home games
    specially teams come to defend .
    Dabuchy … Kos … Gebreal
    Ramsey … Coq… wilsher/cazorla ..
    walcot .. ozil… sanchez

  4. I am glad Rosicky will spend another season with us, he’s a great gap filler.

    Regarding reinforcements we really need to look at each position and assess the talent and depth.

    GK: we need Cech, if Ospina gets injured we are doomed…simples

    RB: Sorted with Debuchy and Bellerin, Jenko to come back after another loan

    CB: Looking better, Gabriel will play more often and gradually replace Mert although he looked error prone at time but Kos was the same in his first season.

    LB: We could probably rely on Gibbs/Monreal this coming season but will need to invest soon

    DM: We need to buy now, Coquelin cannot play a whole season without backup and Bielik is not there yet. Flamini, Diaby and Arteta will probably go

    CM: We are spoilt for choice. Ramsey, Wilshere, Cazorla, Ox…all of them can cover this position

    CAM/RW/LW: Sorted, we have bags of players in these positions, only buy a RW if Theo does not sign a new contract. Release Ryo.

    CF: We are still short of talent here, we need a player who will offer more movement and better finishing than Giroud to share the Burden. Let Sanogo go.

    Verdict: Buy GK, DM and CF at the minimum. If we lose Theo then add a winger or work out a swap plus cash deal for Sterling.

  5. Forgot to add…summer 2016: get world class LB and player with potential to replace Santi the following year.

  6. That’s great news, I’m a big fan of Rozza, he’s a great ambassador of the club and shows a good mixture of elegance and urgency when on the ball. He might not be a first team starter, but make no mistake about it, he is an important player in our squad, big teams need players like him.

  7. Rosicky still better than a Wilshere any day of the week and playing on one leg with his eyes closed.

    We know our players can easily do the job against any team (almost any) as long they have proper direction and the right structure… That is why we need something else.

    Wenger should just complete the squad with another DM (Coquelin cannot play all the games, surely, even thought Wenger thinks so and Arteta is just for show), a world class striker and a world class CB… And let them do the job (he can take the credits if he wants), so we can enjoy some glory.

  8. Anyone who gives a thumb downs response to thomas rosicky staying on another year as a ” gunner” is just a “fickle fan” and not a true gooner! Coyg!
