Why did Podolski not work out at Arsenal?

At the time of writing, Galatasaray are due to announce the signing of Arsenal's Lukas Podolski in the next few hours.  After three years at the Emirates, the German's journey with the Gunners is coming to an end.  Considering how the last 12 months have gone for him, it's safe to say he left with more of a whimper than a bang.  A little less than 12 months ago, Podolski was celebrating winning the World Cup.  He was a bit part …

Podolski & Flanagan Amongst Title Race X-Factors

At the end of the Premier League’s first trimester, we had Gooners occupying first place and basking in the euphoria of a long-awaited “marquee” signing.  Four points across town, Chelsea lurked in second with Manchester City and Liverpool rounding out the top four.  Now, having (almost) completed 26 rounds of play, we have the same first four crew – though Chelsea and Arsenal have swapped seats and City’s game-in-hand could see the Citizens leapfrog the pair. As we head into …

Why Arsenal's Coming Fixtures Will Shape Their Season

Walcott Return Set Back Two Weeks - But Do Arsenal Actually Miss Him?

Walcott Return Set Back Two Weeks - But Do Arsenal Actually Miss Him?

Arsene Wenger confirmed on Monday that Walcott has suffered a setback in his return from injury and will be out for yet another two weeks. This kind of luck, or lack of it, is becoming quite typical for the gunners whenever a player seems like he may be on the brink of return. However, in the current set of circumstances it’s not quite as disastrous as it may usually have been. Even with Podolski, Chamberlain and Diaby all serving long …
