‘Sickie’ Sanchez is no longer an asset

By | July 30th, 2017|1 Comment

As readers of this blog may already be aware, I am a big fan of the Alexis Sanchez's technical ability. I've always been of the opinion that Arsenal should break the bank to keep him happy. If he wants £400k per week, just give it to him or at least offer him something close to it. £275k per week is probably not close enough. Nevertheless, [...]

Why not bid for Vidal?

By | July 24th, 2017|2 Comments

If Inter Milan are reportedly lining up a £45m bid for Bayern Munich's Arturo Vidal, why don't Arsenal follow suit? One way to stop this Alexis Sanchez transfer saga would be to sign one of his international team-mates, and Vidal is something special. He's not only got skill, but he has a phenomenal work rate too. Vidal would be an amazing signing and cheap at [...]

No smoke without Szczesny

By | July 20th, 2017|0 Comments

I've got mixed feelings over the departure of Szczesny. In my opinion, he was potentially an Arsenal great. He had many of the attributes that you want want in a keeper: presence, handling ability, agility and confidence. However, his confidence often turned into over-confidence and, after the alleged revelation (which obviously was some time ago) that he was smoking in the showers hit the headlines, [...]

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

I had high hopes for Takumo Asano. The Japan international seemed to have what it takes to become something special at Arsenal. Unfortunately, the Home Office had different ideas. Despite playing most of Stuttgart's games last season in the Bundesliga 2, apparently Asano has not played enough to get a work permit. It just goes to show how ridiculous the system is. Another Japan international, [...]
