Odegaard promises to take Arsenal back to where it belongs

Martin has spoken to Arsenal fans after completing his permanent transfer from Real Madrid to the club.

The Norwegian is a favourite of Mikel Arteta and he spent the second half of last season at the Emirates.

He was in fine form and helped the Gunners in his own way. He spent little time with them, but he convinced Arteta with his performances that he is worth having at the Emirates.

The Gunners have spent much of this transfer window waiting for him to become available for transfer.

He has now re-joined them on a permanent transfer, but not quick enough to be in the squad for their match against Chelsea.

He spoke to the club’s media after completing his move and in a video posted on their Twitter page, he claimed he feels he has come to stay at the Emirates for a long time and is now looking to make Arsenal an elite club again.

He said: “I feel like I’ve come here to settle down, stay for a while and achieve a lot of good things. I’m really motivated to get this club back where it belongs. I really believe that we can achieve something great here.”

    Really impressed with the signing! Coyg

    When Arteta and Edu were talking about Madison and Martinez I knew they were just playing the waiting game on Odegaard. This club has lost anything related to ambition and it’s pity I got stuck with them.

      You have a choice

    2. Yossarian says:

      Agree with the first part of what you said about the whole Maddison thing being a strategy to help sign Odegaard and for a sensible fee. However I’m happy with the signing. Odegaard has some proper quality and could become a top player.

      Free will tends to be such a wonderful
      concept.

      Martinez was never leaving Inter after RL
      decided to return to Stamford Bridge and
      Arsenal were never serious about meeting
      LC’s ridiculous but understandable
      evaluation of Maddison.

      Ramsdale and MO for less than the LC man
      is pretty solid business for AFC IMWO

    always great to hear a player speak in turns of motivation and wanting to lift a team….I don’t personally think he has the kind of tools that could lift a team to such a degree, unlike some misguided sycophants who made Bergkamp comparisons the other day, but if his arrival, along with promises I believe were made to ESR, before re-signing, results in a fundamental shift in offensive zone tactics, that could be the best case scenario, from a silver lining standpoint

      terms NOT turns

      Dennis Bergkamp’s arrival at Arsenal did transform the Club. As Ian Wright has stated “the best signing Arsenal has made or is ever likely to make”.
      I just hope Martin Odegaard has half the impact and influence on the Club and the players around him of DB10.

        EMS IS WAY BETTER THAN ODIE

  4. guy says:

    So sorry you regret that you “got stuck” with Arsenal. Well the good news is you can support another club, because with that last comment you have shown you are not actually an Arsenal supporter at all.

    1. guy says:

      last comment was for Adega

      1. ken1945 says:

        It’s a pity we got stuck with “fans” like him guy!!!

        I wonder how many fans like this would have stayed during the 70′, 80′, 90’s???

        Im not 100 % on Odegaard’s value to the club, but I will give him my 100% support… guess I’m stuck with it 😂

        1. guy says:

          Look around you Ken – there’s still a few of us left – Prozac at the ready!

          1. Ozziegunner says:

            +1 wishing Martin Odegaard a long and successful career at the Arsenal.

  5. Olu says:

    Good luck!

    I wish you all the best here at Arsenal!

    COYG!

    OT.. Omari Hutchinson brace for the U23s tonight. His first was superb 👌

    1. Phenom says:

      He’s my favorite Sue, a real talent in our disposal. He’s the next big thing. A left-back at a tender age amd now a no. 10 for the U-23’s.

      1. Sue says:

        👍 Looking forward to seeing him in the first team, Phenom!

    2. guy says:

      Haven’t seen the final score. Does that mean they only lost 6-2 this time round? (;-))

      1. Sue says:

        Hahaha, they won 4-2, guy!

    up Gunners for life,In any situation I’m still a Gunners up odgd

  8. James Edite says:

    Actually like Odegard and his best is ahead of him, same with Nuno, Lokonga, Ramsdale, and Ben. Really think Aouar and a right back would be my dream, couldn’t bitch at ownership for not putting money up, all that’s left is to get back to where we belong. Service has to be provided for goals to come if we can’t get Aouar get Coutinho he provides more of the offensive tilt than Aouar, but I crave that creativity to unlock Auba and Laca as well as Martinelli Balogun and Nketiah.

  9. gunnerforlife says:

    Nice of Odegaard to think of taking the Club to its glory days. We need players like him, ambitious and passionate. Great signing.

  10. Gunners4life says:

    Odegaard is a good signing. Though if it were up to me I would still sign Aouar. Our lack of chances is glaring last season. With 3 AM (Ode, Aouar, ESR) we would gave good competition in the position. Plus we can choose to play a double AM in the midfield, with either xhaka, partey, or elneny behind them.

    1. Ozziegunner says:

      G4l, agree but don’t forget Lokonga.
