Arsenal host Bayern Munich tonight as we look to do the highly unexpected, and somehow overturn our devastating 5-1 defeat in Germany.
Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny has refused to rule out a possible dream comeback against Bayern Munich, despite a disastrous loss in Germany.
The Gunners succumbed to a devastating 5-1 defeat last night, and now face a dreading three week wait until they get the chance to try and save face with their own win in London.
I have often been accused of making excuses for a poor Arsenal result by blaming our bad luck, whether it be the usual injury crisis, some decisions by the referee, an unfavourable cup draw or just the general rub of the green. I am certainly not going to do that about the Gunners’ campaign in the Champions League so far though, as all our luck so far in Europe this season has been of the good variety.
Just like a bottle of good French wine the Arsenal and France defender Laurent Koscielny seems to be getting better with every year that passes and at 30-years of age the centre back has plenty of years left at the peak of his playing career, so obviously Arsenal fans are hoping that he will spend them as a Gunner.
If the Arsenal transfer rumours are right then the Bayern Munich and Germany international star Mario Gotze could soon be joining Granit Xhaka in boosting the midfield options of the Gunners, despite some reports in the football media suggesting that Gotze might be rejoining his former manager Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.
Arsenal fans are well used to seeing all sorts of dodgy transfer rumours as our club is the subject of more than most, so like me you may well be a touch sceptical about the report in the Daily Mail suggesting that we might be able to sign the brilliant Poland international striker Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich.
For weeks and months we have been seeing a lot of Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that the first deal of the summer for Arsene Wenger could be the capture of the Switzerland international midfield star Granit Xhaka. But the latest stories in the football media have thrown a big question mark over his move to north London.
We need to hope that the Arsenal and Spanish international star Hector Bellerin meant what he said recently when the Arsenal transfer rumours linking him with a possible return to his former club Barcelona started popping up in the football press once again.
