Four months or so ago, when Arsenal were flying high in the Premier League and leading the Champions League group of death, the question of whether Arsene Wenger should be given a new contract would have brought incredulous stares and accusations of being a spud from most Gooners. But times change.
As is proved by the Daily Mail reporting that the results of a survey by the Black Scarf Movement that shows that Wenger’s support amongst Arsenal fans has dropped considerably. There is still plenty of support for the Frenchman, but it is far from being unconditional. In fact, it seems that failure to secure the first trophy in nine years and dropping out of the top four would see Gooners clamouring for a new manager at the helm. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal’s current longest-serving player Bacary Sagna has looked to be set to leave the Emirates this summer as he has not yet agreed to sign a new contract extension. Talks seem to have been going on for the last 18 months and there have been rumours abounding that PSG and (God Forbid!) Man City have been preparing to offer the versatile Frenchman a big-money contract to end his career with them.
But now perhaps the talks are nearing a conclusion, as the right-back’s latest comments would seem to indicate he has no desire to leave Arsenal at all! Sagna said in The Mirror: “I love Arsenal, I love playing for Arsenal, I love my team,” .......Read the full article here
Arsene Wenger will sign a new contract with the club! by Ash
Yesterdy Arsenal announced that they have secured a deal with sports brand Puma, who will supply the Gunners’ kit for the next five seasons under their sponsorship rights. The deal, which is a record breaker for both sides of the party will see a massive £150 million transfer from Puma to Arsenal over the course of 5 seasons from kit sponsorship alone, making it one of the biggest deals in footballing history. .......Read the full article here
There is a new Arsenal transfer rumour doing the rounds and it is safe to say that nobody saw this one coming. This time is not about a potential signing for the Gunners, but about another club showing interest in one of our players. No surprise there, but the club is the German and European champions Bayern Munich and the player is our 33-year old midfielder Tomas Rosicky.
I am one of the many Arsenal fans who feels that Rosicky is still a great player and was really pleased ro hear Arsene Wenger declare that the Czech international would definitely be offered a contract extension at the end of the season. But to read in the Independent that Bayern are interested in signing Rosicky is still a bit of a surprise. .......Read the full article here
If Arsenal mess this up, someone needs to be sacked. It seems as though the Gunners are on the verge of losing Bacary Sagna at the end of the season after all. The news last week was good, and it seemed to be just a matter of time before the France international was signed up with a new contract, along with Per Mertesacker and Arsene Wenger. .......Read the full article here
There has been a lot of talk and speculation about the future of Arsene Wenger at Arsenal in the last few years, but it seems like it is about to be resolved. And once his management stint is over, the longest serving manager in the Premier League is set for a new role with the club.
After last season’s struggles saw Wenger’s position become as precarious as it has been since the Frenchman took over the reins of the Gunners in 1996, he is now widely admired again and, according to a report in the Mirror, is set to be handed a two year extension to his current deal that runs out in the summer. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal are on a roll, a bit like butter and jam. And the opening of the January transfer window gives Arsene Wenger a great opportunity to add to his Arsenal (get it?) and give the squad a boost as they try to fight off the serious financial and football firepower of Man City and Chelsea.
But we know that bringing in the right kind of player halfway through the season is far from easy. So to be able to give the players and fans a big lift without dipping into the difficult transfer market is a real boost. And for Arsenal to tie down the future of the fantastic French right back Bacary Sagna would be a perfect way to do it. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal have done brilliantly so far this season. After scraping fourth place again last season, signing no players in the summer and losing the opening game of the Premier League at home to Aston Villa, not many expected to see the Gunners sitting with a five point gap of the top of the table.
So from calls for Arsene Wenger to step down, the Frenchman’s stock is as high as it has been for years. The club has been trying to get the boss to sign an extension to his current contract, which runs out at the end of the season. But Wenger has resisted so far and, according to a Mirror report, it was because of the Champions League and whether he could steer Arsenal through the minefield of the toughest of all the groups. .......Read the full article here
With Bacary Sagna still set to be a free agent at the end of the season, it seems that Arsenal scouts have been hunting high and low to find a right-back of suitable quality to challenge the improving Carl Jenkinson next season.
I bet that Arsene Wenger is relieved that Arsenal Football Club signed up the core of young players on long term contracts last season. Because one of those five players was the Welsh wizard Aaron Ramsey, whose fantastic form has been the talk of the season. And that is not just with Arsenal fans either, or even the Premier League.
Arsenal’s transfer nemesis Barcelona have reportedly been keeping a keen eye on Ramsey, as reported by the Daily Mail, and have had the scouts at the last four Gunners’ games as well as the last two internationals he played in for Wales. However, unlike in the past, Wenger should not lose too much sleep over this revelation. Ramsey has not got the draw of his boyhood club like Fabregas had. .......Read the full article here
Over the past few weeks, there have been plenty of reports from the English media in regards to the future of the Arsenal full-back Bacary Sagna. The Frenchman has so far refused to sign a new deal at the Emirates and while Arsene Wenger still seems pretty optimistic about the situation, it is not hard to see that talks are not going ahead as planned by the club. .......Read the full article here
He is the only first team player that Arsenal are in serious danger of losing, but Bacary Sagna is proving all his critics wrong this season and showing the kind of form and consistency that should have Arsene Wenger telling the Arsenal board, in no uncertain terms, to sharpen their pencils and offer the France international a deal that will keep him at the Emirates once his current contract expires next summer. .......Read the full article here
