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
Arsenal have announced a deal that has broken records for both organisations, with the financial support being Puma’s biggest investment and Arsenal’s biggest sponsorship deal. While some may choose to focus on the new kit design that will be created for the upcoming 2013/14 season, with some images already released with caution, instead it is the financial factor that needs to be addressed with the most focus because it really does hold a lot of promising signs for the club. .......Read the full article here
Dear Gooners, since Arsenal drew against Everton, things have slowly begun to go downhill for the Gunners. Our defeat against Napoli was a big blow as we now have to face last year’s champions in the knockout stages of the Champions League. On top of that, we got hammered by Man City over the weekend, only to further destroy our morale and start to confirm what pundits have been saying all along this season – that Arsenal do not have what it takes when push comes to shove. .......Read the full article here
Almost a third of the season is already behind us and Arsenal Football Club hasn’t had things easy when it comes to injuries. It started with the first game of the season and it has continued with every game we played. So a couple of players have only played a few games, while some of them play every three or four days. One guy especially plays all the time, without a real chance of change. His name is of course Olivier Giroud, or as we know him, na na na naaa. .......Read the full article here
‘Tottenham aren’t Arsenal’s rivals’ suggests Gazids! by Ash
Arsenal spokesman and chief executive Ivan Gazids is often facing the rebellions of Arsenal fans when it comes to his position at the club and the action, or perhaps lack of action, and influence he seems to have in this club, but for once he has actually got the Arsenal faithful on his side by taunting local rivals Tottenham Hotspur. .......Read the full article here
It has seemed to many Arsenal fans for some time now that the majority shareholder Stan Kroenke was more concerned about running Arsenal Football Club as a profitable business rather than a successful club on the pitch. An eight year wait for a trophy, while seeing the best players like Fabregas, Cole, Nasri and van Persie sold for one reason or another, did nothing to distract from this opinion. .......Read the full article here
Wenger should not be given new contract yet by Dave N
Do Arsenal play in red and white? I wonder sometimes because everything seems either black or white with us at the minute. One minute, Wenger has lost the plot, his passion and any tactical awareness he once had. He was an accountant, a tool of the board, and many fans and football experts thought he should leave Arsenal.
Just a month or so later, and he is a tactical genius, the best manager in England, if not the universe. The Mirror reports that he is set to be offered a bumper new thee year deal, and everyone thinks it is a brilliant idea, except me. .......Read the full article here
I have to admit that the signing of Ozil has got me excited, but having said that, I am not completely happy with the way Arsenal transfers were handled. I can’t help thinking that the signing of one big name player was the plan of Wenger and the board all along. This signing was nothing but a PR stunt on behalf of Arsene and the board to fool fans once again. .......Read the full article here
Three days to go, and there’s still no world class player in sight at the Emirates. Still no “special” player or “top, top, top” player. We are yet to see Gazidis “do some things that would excite you” or yet to see the much touted “escalation in our financial firepower”. Instead, Arsene has added two players to the squad for a combined fee of £0.00p; the first an inexperienced 20 year old kid with a dodgy injury record and the other a repentant former ex-player who claims to have “unfinished business” at Arsenal. .......Read the full article here
Draxler, being only 19, is somewhat of a typical Wenger signing. However, we look at his fee and then it becomes nothing like a Wenger signing. However, with our desperation in the market, we can’t afford to negotiate with the selling team anymore; we have to pay what they want. I wouldn’t be surprised if the likes of Gazidis is going over Wenger’s head now to ensure this window doesn’t end an absolute disaster. .......Read the full article here
As we approach the end of the summer transfer window, the Arsenal fans and players alike are understandably frustrated with the lack of signings coming in and especially the fact we have seen no world class additions, when we were promised specifically that there would be. .......Read the full article here
Arsene Wenger has attempted to give an explanation into the, so far, barren and disappointing transfer business conducted by Arsenal this summer. The Frenchman admits that the way it has gone has not been according to plan, and that he had hoped to complete some quality signings nice and early, as we all expected.
“You would be surprised how early we acted,” said Wenger. “In our job sometimes you can spend a lot of time, don’t go on holiday, work on things, and it doesn’t come off.
