How Sead Kolasinac is already establishing himself at Arsenal

Arsenal didn't make many moves in the summer transfer market, with only two senior signings arriving at the club. The focus was on the singing of Alexandre Lacazette as he was brought in for a big fee and arrived with the reputation of being one of the best strikers in Europe. However, it has been the other signing, Sead Kolasinac, that has had the greater impact during the opening weeks of the new season. The 24-year-old was a free transfer …

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 …
Why Michy Batshuayi needs to leave Chelsea this summer

Why Michy Batshuayi needs to leave Chelsea this summer

Chelsea are entering the season with a new striker in the form of Alvaro Morata and they could yet sign another to compete with the Spanish international. However, Michy Batshauyi is making a case for himself during pre-season with some great performances. The Belgian was underused last season and it appeared that Antonio Conte wasn't a huge fan of the striker. He arrived with a growing reputation and was regarded as a greater talent than Alexandre Lacazette when he left …
Olivier Giroud: Arsenal’s Unappreciated Goalscorer

Olivier Giroud: Arsenal’s Unappreciated Goalscorer

Last year, Arsenal were that close to signing Leicester’s Jamie Vardy for a £25 million transfer fee. But Vardy never put pen to paper.

He realised that his limited, direct attacking skills did not fit well with Arsenal’s more intricate, build-from-the-back, short passing in tight spaces requirements. Vardy backed out of the move. Had the transfer been completed, the addition …
