Arsenal cannot get like for like if they sell Sanchez

By | July 9th, 2017|1 Comment

...unless The Gunners sign former transfer target Luis Suarez. However, there is little to no chance of that happening in the foreseeable future, if ever. Therefore, we can give up the ghost on that one. Instead, Arsenal have to focus on keep Alexis Sanchez happy. The Chilean has to be happy enough to sign a new long-term contract. Arsenal fans will wonder how that will [...]

What do you think of Arsenal’s transfer business so far?

By | June 30th, 2017|7 Comments

The inevitable answer to the rhetorical question in the title is 'rubbish', but is that really fair? After all, Arsenal have signed Sead Kolasinac, one of the most talented left backs in the Bundesliga last season, by all accounts. The Bosnia and Herzegovina international was also wanted by AC Milan, so surely Arsenal deserve credit for stealing a march on such prestigious European rivals. However, [...]

Why don’t Arsenal appeal to the Home Office?

By | June 22nd, 2017|2 Comments

If I were Leicester manager, Craig Shakespeare, I would cash in on Mahrez right now. The winger signed a new deal [...]

Sanchez deal needs sorting soon

By | June 13th, 2017|1 Comment

The thought of losing Alexis Sanchez is what is ruining the summer for many Arsenal fans, who should be basking of the glory of being FA Cup winners for the fourth time in three years. Instead though, Arsenal fans have had to listen to stories linking Sanchez with a move to Manchester City. The question is: should the Gunners sell their prized asset for big [...]

Arsenal are waiting for Godot

By | June 4th, 2017|0 Comments

I've just read a really interesting article in the Sunday Times written by David Walsh about how 'the Arsenal story has become football's "Waiting for Godot", Samuel Beckett's masterful play about the futility of life'. I won't steal Walsh's thunder by detailing everything in his article but, I must say, I found it hard to disagree with most of his overall analysis. Walsh maintains the [...]
