Per Matersacker will be retiring at the end of this season to join the youth system at the club as a coach. The 33-year-old world cup winner has been the captain of Arsenal since the departure of Mikel Arteta three seasons ago. His leadership quality both on and off the field has been one of the best Arsenal have had in recent time. He commands the respect of everyone at the club despite his demeanor of being a quiet leader. It’s time to pass the baton of leadership to another player and lots of names have been bandied around the […]

Arsenal in the January transfer window

Another year has almost gone by which means we are half way through yet another disappointing season for Arsenal. The sad part is Gunners all around the World seem not to be surprised by it anymore and it is very worrying that this has become norm in recent years. During the year of 2017, especially since Arsene Wenger signed a new 2 years contract in the summer, it has become more evident that fundamental changes were necessary. With all the changes that have been happening at backroom level in the last few months, it looks like the Arsenal board are […]


  Arsene Wenger has won nine major trophies in his 21 years with Arsenal, building some memorable teams whilst consistently delivering Champions League football. Not everyone agrees with his running of the club in more recent times but it would be sad if the two parties should separate in a manner that is anything other than warm and amicable. Here are six ways Wenger can ensure he leaves the club on a high. Keep Sanchez firing In 24 games in which Alexis Sanchez has started as the lone striker, he has scored 17 goals.

Wenger needs to leave Arsenal on a high: here’s how ...

Arsenal are on course for their first finish outside of the top four in the Premier League in Arsene Wenger’s tenure at the club. The Gunners dropped down to sixth in the table following their defeat at the hands of West Brom, capping a humiliating month for the team, having been thrashed by Bayern Munich in their Champions League round-of-16 clash. Although reports suggest that the 67-year-old is planning to remain at the Emirates Stadium, the huge pressure Wenger was already under is now at its peak – with a growing number of appeals to the club’s hierarchy not to extend his contract at the end […]

Should the Gunners cut two of their starlets loose this ...

Another January window is over, another fruitless season seems to be upon us. But this time it is not due to our failure to add to the squad as this Arsenal squad is the strongest we have had since the Invincibles. We have Alexis Sanchez with 17 goals and 11 assists, Theo Walcott with 14 goals and 2 assists, Olivier Giroud with 10 goals and 3 assists, Mesut Ozil with 9 goals and 7 assists. If you add Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – 6 goals, 6 assists, Lucas Perez – 6 goals, 6 assists Alex Iwobi – 4 goals, 3 assists and […]

Missing Cazorla

The January transfer window has been relatively quiet up to this point. The biggest transfer has beenCarlos Tevez making the move from Boca Juniors to Shanghai Shenhua. Tevez is now the world’s highest-paid footballer. Tevez signed a two-year contract worth $41 million annually. The Chinese Super League has been splashing around big money in recent years and it’s only a matter of time before more stars leave the UK and Europe. We’re unlikely to see Premier League clubs make a huge splash during the January transfer window because they spent record money in the summer and most teams will likely […]

Will Arsenal Sign a Striker During the January Transfer Window

  With a hard-fought victory over West Brom, Arsenal have shown that they are capable of mixing it with the physical teams and can grind out a win. Tony Pullis has a reputation for creating teams with a consistent first eleven that are well drilled in defending against skilful players, are able to instigate a counter attack through long balls and look to physically dominate the opposition. Not the sort of team manager Arsene Wenger would have chosen as their Boxing Day opposition after a run that saw The Gunners amass just one point from the past three fixtures. “Olivier […]
