Arsenal's Europa League Group Preview

Arsenal's Europa League Group Preview

The name of Arsenal being associated with a competition like the Europa League has been nothing more than unthinkable in my lifetime. Under Arsene Wenger, the Gunners have been in Europe’s elite competition since he took charge of his first full season nearly 20 years ago. But this season poses a new challenge for the Frenchman; a debatably lesser one than that posed by the Bayerns and Barcelonas of recent Champions League campaigns but nevertheless a fresh one. Ahead of …

What Arsenal would miss out on if Thomas Lemar goes to Liverpool

Earlier reports this week had suggested Liverpool were closing in on AS Monaco starlet Thomas Lemar as their club record signing. A deal worth around £70 million was said to have been offered by the Reds as they looked to complete the deal by the end of the window. Arsenal lodged a bid for Lemar earlier in the summer, but the bid was rejected and the player’s stance at the club was labelled “non-negotiable” by Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev. Whilst …

Arsenal Player Ratings vs Liverpool after 4-0 loss

“Embarrassing”, “pathetic” and “disinterested”; just three of the words used by pundits and supporters alike to describe one of the worst Arsenal performances of the Arsene Wenger era. But unfortunately for the Gunners faithful, this type of performance is far from becoming an uncommon occurrence in recent years, particularly against the league’s best sides. 6 years ago Arsenal’s 8-2 collapse at Old Trafford to Manchester United was seen as a crisis, exaggerated by the fact that it was rare to …

Arsenal 2017/18: Season Preview

On one side of the coin, the upcoming season presents many a familiar challenge for Arsenal; the fans' opinion on their long-serving manager remains split, and key players are linked with moves away. But on the flip side, the new campaign provides a host of fresh hurdles for the Gunners, particularly with the prospect of Europa League football as opposed to the Champions League for the first time in years. The weekend's Community Shield win over Chelsea will have given …

Reiss Nelson's Pre-Season Exploits - What Next for the Arsenal Youngster?

The Emirates Cup - despite holding what some would consider a flawed point scoring system - has many benefits as a pre season competition. First is of course the added revenue it brings to all the clubs involved; mainly through the expansion of the associated brands across a greater worldwide audience, at a time where high quality football is in top demand. Then there is the benefit from the fans perspective of being able to watch not one, but two …
Jack Wilshere: Facing Crucial Decisions in his Career Defining Summer

Jack Wilshere: Facing Crucial Decisions in his Career Defining Summer

In February of 2011 Arsenal defied the odds to beat Europe’s greatest - Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona – 2-1 at the Emirates in the Champions League. That night the pitch was laden with midfield maestros; the likes of Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta and Cesc Fabregas to name a few. But the name which dominated the back pages the morning after was none of the above, instead it was a 19-year-old by the name of Jack Wilshere. With a passing accuracy of …

Arsenal's Options in the wake of another Santi Cazorla Injury

Things are looking up this Summer at the Arsenal; Alexandre Lacazette recently became the club’s record signing and various reports from Chile hint at star man Alexis Sanchez remaining a part of Arsene Wenger’s squad for next season. Alongside this are the continued reports linking the likes of Riyad Mahrez, Thomas Lemar and Kylian Mbappe to the club, with Mesut Ozil’s recent renewal of his Emirates Stadium box brightening the N5 skies that little bit more. But news breaking early …
