Do you agree? Alan Pardew says Arsenal should re-name Emirates Stadium after Arsene Wenger:
Jorge Mendes has revealed that Arsenal’s inability to sign Cristiano Ronaldo was because of the club’s plans to build the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners were competing with Manchester United to land Ronaldo from Sporting in 2003, while earlier this season Arsene Wenger admitted his “biggest regret” was missing out on the Portugal international. In a new biography that will be released in English this year, titled ‘The Agent One’, Mendes concedes that Arsenal were very close to signing the three-time Ballon d'Or winner before a lack of financial power scuppered the deal. “There was a moment in which I really thought he was going to Arsenal,” said Mendes. “David Dein [Arsenal’s former vice-chairman] is a spectacular person but, with the construction of their stadium, they were left with very little money and it wasn’t possible.” Mendes also revealed that Sir Alex Ferguson’s desire to immediately use Ronaldo in United’s first team was the tipping point in negotiations. “The only ...

A man has been arrested and charged for allegedly confronting Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger during their 2-0 Premier League loss to Southampton on New Year's Day, reports the BBC. Luke Bryant, 25, from Lymington in Hampshire is said to have broken the laws outlined in the 1991 Football Offences Act by taking to the technical area and going up to Wenger. Mr Bryant will appear at Southampton Magistrates' Court on January 22. The incident occurred with Wenger's Gunners side losing to their hosts and comes just weeks after the Frenchman was abused by supporters as he left Stoke City's Britannia Stadium. As is almost tradition every season now, many unhappy fans want the 65-year-old to leave the North London club for what they perceive as poor form from their team. Wenger was the subject of a campaign to force him out of the Emirates Stadium earlier in 2014/15 as well when a 'Wenger Out' banner was revealed during the match at West Bromwich Albion.

Truth Of Arsenal’s Reported £62m Bid For Cavani Revealed Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger has denied that there is any truth behind recent reports linking his side with a stunning £62 million swoop for Paris Saint Germain striker Edison Cavani. The Gunners have been consistently linked with a move for Cavani since the summer Transfer Window, but a deal never materialised. Recent weeks have seen reports about a potential switch for the Uruguayan hit man appear more regularly in the press heading into the January Transfer Window. This is something of a surprise, given that Arsenal have Danny Welbeck and a fit again Olivier Giroud available to them, although Giroud is set to miss two more games after his head butt to an opponent on Saturday. One particular link in the French press gained popularity in recent days, suggesting that Cavani was on the cusp of a huge £62 million switch to the Emirates Stadium. Wenger has denied that, however, and panned transfer rumours in general. Wenger said: “I don’t giv ...
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger hailed "fabulous" Alexis Sanchez after his late strike secured a 1-0 win over Southamptonin the Premier League on Wednesday. The London club looked set to have to settle for a point at the Emirates Stadium as they struggled to break down a spirited and resolute Southampton side. Fraser Forster produced sensational saves to deny Danny Welbeck twice and Olivier Giroud as Arsenal desperately pushed to force a winner which would move them up to sixth place. And it duly arrived one minute from the end, when Chile forward Alexis was on hand to ram home his 14th goal of an impressive debut season in England. Loading... The victory leaves Arsenal two points adrift of fourth-placed Manchester United and Wenger praised the impact his big-money signing has made since his move from Barcelona. He told Arsenal's official website: "It's difficult to find examples of someone who has settled so quickly. He's had a fabulous impact on the team." Wenger acknowledged Arsenal were not at their fluent ...

Wenger opens door to Henry Arsenal return The former France international has been linked with a coaching role at the Emirates Stadium, and his ex-manager feels there is no doubt he will back in North London Dec 2, 2014 11:19:00 Arsene Wenger believes Thierry Henry will "certainly" return to Arsenal one day. The Frenchman left New York Red Bulls following their elimination from the MLS playoffs on Saturday, with his future unknown at this stage. Bordeaux manager Willy Sagnol has already offered his former France team-mate a place among his Coaching Staff should he retire from playing while a role in the media remains an option. But Wenger believes the 37-year-old will have a role in North London at some point in the future but said he must consider what part he wants to play. "What I understand is that he wants to reflect for a while on how he wants to go into his next life,” the Arsenal manager is quoted as saying by the club's official website. “The only thing I would like to say is that I gave him ...
Arsene Wenger has once again praised the impact of Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez after the in-form forward helped the Gunners progress to the last-16 of the Champions League. Sanchez has won rave reviews since his £30million summer arrival from Barcelona, and he netted his 13th goal of the season as the North London outfit beat Group D leaders Borussia Dortmund 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium to book their place in the next round. French youngster Yaya Sanogo opened the scoring with his first Arsenal goal, but it was his strike partner who provided the cutting edge for the Gunners. And, asked what the Chilean brought to the team, Wenger said: "Unbelievable fighting spirit and his class as well. “He's a mixture of talent and desire." It was an assured performance from Arsenal, who refused to let their lead slip following the disappointment of the weekend’s 2-1 defeat to Manchester United, something which pleased Wenger. “We had the focus to defend well together,” the French boss added. "We had a similar ...

Football Arsenal victory sees Wenger ward off vultures - for now Published on 27/11/2014 at 01:31 Pitchside Europe Arsene Wenger got the better of his potential successor Juergen Klopp to keep Arsenal shareholders happy - and Gunners fans, for a night at least, writes Tom Adams. Anyone who attended Emirates Stadium hoping to detect a symbolic handover from Arsene Wenger to Juergen Klopp would have left disappointed. This was a night for the incumbent to beat back the pretender. Silent Stan Kroenke has not earned that famous moniker for no reason. No one outside his inner circle will have any real insight into whether he views Klopp as a possible replacement for his current manager, but if this was any kind of job interview, then the German stumbled over his lines as Wenger found his voice again in a 2-0 victory which secured Arsenal's progression to the last-16 of the Champions League.

Mikel Arteta knows Arsenal must be more ruthless after a defeat to Manchester United that the midfielder described as "not fair".United were 2-1 winners at the Emirates Stadium to move above Arsene Wenger's side in the Premier League table on Saturday. Arsenal lost by the same scoreline at Swansea City before the international break and are down in eighth place after the first 12 top-flight games. Captain Arteta felt the defeat was harsh on Arsene Wenger's side, but realises they must make the most of their dominance in matches if they are to challenge for honours. "I'm shocked," said the Former Everton man. "I think we played our best game this season in terms of what we demand of ourselves - the quality in the way we attacked, how we won the ball back, how consistent we were throughout, the amount of chances we created. "When you are in the box and you can't manage to score in that many situations, you can't expect to win. "It's not fair for the players and the fans. How can I explain the result? I can' ...
One from Saturday: Arsene Wenger arrives at the Emirates pre-
Gunless Arsenal brought down by United. Wayne Rooney led Manchester United back into the top four of the Premier League with a smash-and-grab 2-1 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday. On the back of a successful week with England, the United captain secured victory with a coolly-taken 85th- minute chip over Arsenal substitute goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez. Rooney's strike added to a comedy own-goal by Kieran Gibbs that saw the left-back deflect Antonio Valencia's cross into his own net after a mix-up with goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, who was injured in the process. Olivier Giroud, on as a second-half substitute, replied deep into stoppage time for Arsenal, but United held on to record a first competitive away win since April 5. The victory took Louis Van Gaal's side back into the Champions League places, 13 points behind leaders Chelsea. Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger was left to rue an afternoon of wasted opportunities and inspired goalkeeping by United's David de Gea, as well as injur ...
welcome marinka sports news Arsene Wenger says Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck has been playing with a point to prove as he prepares for his first reunion with former club Manchester United on Saturday. Welbeck has impressed for the Gunners since his £16 million ($25.1 million, 20 million euros) transfer deadline day switch from United. The England international's five goals in 12 appearances have gone some way to silencing the critics, including United boss Louis Van Gaal, who said Welbeck wasn't up to the standard required at Old Trafford. Arsenal manager Wenger knows he has benefitted from Welbeck's determination to show he can make it at the highest level and he expects the forward, a boyhood United fan who had been at the club for 11 years, to be fully motivated when United come to the Emirates Stadium this weekend. "You can take every challenge in a positive way and that is what Danny did," Wenger said. "You have to understand Louis Van Gaal did not have Welbeck under his command for a long time and ...
Arsenal vs Manchester United Preview Scene-setter: After getting back to winning ways with a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace before the international break, United will look to continue marching up the league table with an away win over traditional rivals Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. With the chance to leapfrog the Gunners by beating them, Louis Van Gaal will be hoping to pile the pressure on the teams currently occupying the Champions League places. Form guide: Prior to the Crystal Palace result, United were on a three-game winless streak which included two draws against West Bromwich Albion and Chelsea and then a derby defeat to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. Head to head, the Reds can take confidence from having won 10 of the last 14 games against Arsenal in all competitions and losing only one – 1-0 at the Emirates on 1 May 2011, just prior to winning the league. Arsenal went into the club-football hiatus with a defeat away to Swansea, and although sitting a point above United, they too ...
Arsenal To Beat Chelsea To Signing Of Championship Starlet Ipswich Town defender Tyrone Mings looks likely to move to the Premier League in the near future as Arsenal join the race for his signature, according to the Mirror . The 21-year-old has been impressing in the second tier of English football and has already attracted the likes of Chelsea, Everton, Manchester United and Newcastle United. The Blues were believed to be leading the race for Mings having identified the Englishman as the ideal long-term successor to captain John Terry. However, Arsene Wenger is keen to beat his London rivals to the youngster as he looks to bolster his defence in the January Transfer Window. The Gunners started the 2014/15 season with only six recognised first team defenders and long-term injuries to Mathieu Debuchy and Laurent Koscielny has reduced the squad to its bare bones. Wenger has been given £20m by the hierarchy at the Emirates Stadium and would be willing to sanction half of that to land Mings. The 65-year-old ...

Arsene Wenger reveals the latest updates ahead of Tuesdayday's game against Anderlecht at Emirates Stadium
ICYMI: Arsene Wenger confirms Laurent Kosielny is out of Saturday's game with Hull City at the Emirates Stadium.
Manchester City are reportedly preparing a bid for Arsenal play maker Mesut Ozil. The Germany international is thought to be unhappy at the Emirates Stadium, particularly with Arsene Wenger's choice to play him on the left side of midfield rather than in his preferred role behind the centre-forward. The 25-year-old has struggled for consistency since joining the Gunners from Real Madrid for a club-record fee of £42.5m in August 2013. Bayern Munich have reportedly expressed an interest in signing Ozil, but Premier League champions City are ready to fend off any competition by making a £35m bid for the midfielder. Ozil is currently sidelined until the beginning of 2015 with a knee injury. *Talking point - should Arsenal cash in on Ozil by selling him if City makes a concrete bid?"...
Wenger, Mourinho batter on Fabregas as Chelsea, Arsenal clash All eyes will be on Cesc Fabregas in the Premier League on Sunday when he plays his first game against former club Arsenal in the colours of new side Chelsea. Fabregas spent eight years with Arsenal, including three as captain, but when he returned to England from Barcelona in June, it was at Stamford Bridge that he alighted, rather than the Emirates Stadium. The 27-year-old has been an instant hit at Chelsea, supplying seven assists in eight games, but Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger says he has no regrets about not exercising an option to bring the midfielder back to the club. Asked if he believed that Fabregas would have preferred to return to Arsenal, Wenger said: “Certainly, yes. “I don’t want to make a big story of that because you have to accept that once he went to Barcelona — and it was the first separation, which was difficult for us — he could have gone anywhere else after. “I personally believe that deal (with Chelsea) was ...
Tottenham Hotspur-Arsenal Preview Arsenal are one of just two Premier League teams without a loss this season, yet Manager Arsene Wenger still finds himself the subject of criticism. His players could help quieten the skeptics on Saturday when they welcome Tottenham Hotspur to the Emirates in the first North London derby of the season, with the Gunners hoping to win three straight Premier League matches over their rivals for the first time. Injuries have turned the Arsenal defence into a pressing issue, and Wenger's management of the situation has drawn ire from a large section of the supporters for leaving the squad lacking depth in defence after deadline day. Help could be on the way with defenders Per Mertesacker and Kieran Gibbs said to be returning from injury. The duo were available only as substitutes in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to Southampton at the Emirates Stadium, which sent the Gunners (2-3-0) out of the League Cup. Fellow defender Mathieu Debuchy will be out for an estimated three months after unde ...
PL PREVIEW FOR 13th September Arsenal - Man City 17:30 NST Arsenal won 18 of their first 22 Barclays Premier League fixtures against Manchester City, but have only won three of the last 12 (D4 L5). The Citizens have only won one of 17 previous Barclays Premier League games away at Arsenal; a 2-0 win in January 2013 (L11 D5). Indeed, that 2-0 win was also the only time Manchester City have scored more than once in 17 Premier League games at either Highbury or the Emirates. Danny Welbeck could become only the third player in Premier League history to play for both Arsenal and Manchester United (Mikael Silvestre, Robin Van Persie). The Gunners have won more Premier League games in September than any other Premier League side (48) and also have the best points/game average (2.02). Arsene Wenger's side are unbeaten in 19 Premier League games at the Emirates Stadium (W14 D5) and have won their last four in a row there. Arsenal have conceded four goals from only seven shots on target faced in the top-flight this ...
Welbeck our reward for Man Utd taking Van Persie – Wenger The Arsenal boss believes his new striker can “improve his career” at the Emirates Stadium and hit back at criticism of his decision to travel to Rome for a charity match Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger says Danny Welbeck was like a reward for Manchester United stealing away with Robin Van Persie two years ago. The Gunners completed a €20 million deal for the England forward late on deadline day after Radamel Falcao joined the Red Devils on a season- long loan. Welbeck’s sale has been criticised by the likes of former United captain Gary Neville but Wenger says he jumped at the opportunity to bring the 23- year-old to North London. He told reporters: “We lost an important striker in Olivier Giroud and we’re short in numbers up front. Danny Welbeck is an ideal signing for us because he can play through the middle, which I think is his best position, and also on the flanks. “He brings a team attitude, which is very important to us, pace ...

Arsenal battling to sign Barcelona ace Munir El Haddadi in £9.4m transfer deal. Arsenal want to sign Barcelona sensation Munir El Haddadi but are facing a battle to convince him to move to the Emirates Stadium. Munir, 18, is the next big talent to emerge from Barca’s academy and he announced himself in style with a goal against Elche CF on his La Liga debut last week. And the Daily Express says Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is keen on doing a deal to sign him, and have been boosted by the fact his buyout clause is only £9.4million. However, the paper adds that Barcelona are hitting back by opening talks with the striker over a new contract, and they’re prepared to offer much more in wages. Arsenal will find it difficult to compete, but the Gunners have pinched several starlets from Barca in recent years including Cesc Fabregas, Hector Bellerin and Jon Toral.
Arsenal Land In Group Stage Alexis Sanchez’s first goal for Arsenal since his £35m move from Barcelona claimed the prize of a place in the Champions League group stage for the 17th successive season on a tense night at Emirates Stadium. The Chilean struck the goal that edged out Besiktas but Arsenal had to survive nervous moments – including playing the last 14 minutes with 10 men after Mathieu Debuchy was sent off – before winning this qualifier. And for Manager Arsene Wenger, Sanchez’s strike ensured a rich reward on his expensive summer investment as Arsenal once again go into Thursday’s draw for the group phase. Besiktas were furious when Jack Wilshere’s first-half tackle on Ramon Motta in the area went unpunished while Arsenal missed chances of their own to ease the anxiety sweeping around the stadium in the closing stages. With Aaron Ramsey suspended, Wilshere was at the heart of Arsenal’s best work with an energetic display that put recent poor form behind him, while Sanchez demonstr ...
Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger branded Aaron Ramsey's late sending off against Besiktas "unbelievable" following his side's goalless draw in the Champions League playoff first leg. Already on a yellow card, Ramsey pulled back Oguzhan Ozyakup's shirt in the dying minutes at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium and was subsequently shown the first red card of his club career by referee Milorad Mazic. The midfielder will now miss next week's return leg at the Emirates Stadium. "Both yellow cards for Aaron Ramsey are unbelievable. When you see the fouls they have made today it's not serious. Just not serious," Wenger told ITV. Besiktas forward Demba Ba proved a constant threat for the home side as the former Chelsea striker went close on numerous occasions, while substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain saw a late effort tipped on to the post. Wenger conceded it was a frantic game and both teams wasted chances to take a lead to North London. However, the Frenchman believes his side are capable of doing the job at home in ord ...

Ahead of what promises to be another thrilling Premier League season, we take a look at 10 of the biggest and best close-season transfers. Alexis Sanchez - Arsenal The second-largest transfer in Arsenal's history, with an estimated £32million fee, Arsene Wenger pulled off a major coup in bringing the Chile star to the Emirates Stadium from Barcelona. Deemed surplus to requirements at Camp Nou ahead of Luis Suarez's arrival, Alexis turned down Liverpool to join Arsenal. He was a key player in his country's run to the last 16 of the World Cup, and Arsenal fans will be hoping the fleet-of-foot forward can help fire them to a first Premier League title since 2004. Diego Costa - Chelsea After his haul of 36 goals in all competitions helped Atletico Madrid to the Spanish title and the Uefa Champions League final, Chelsea decided to splash over £30m on Costa. Jose Mourinho regularly bemoaned his striking options as Chelsea finished third in the Premier League last term, and he will hope Spain international Cos ...
Arsenal closing in on Douglas Costa loan The Gunners keen on sealing loan move for striker Arsenal are reportedly closing in on a loan-deal with Shakhtar Donetsk for striker Douglas Costa. Costa would be The Gunners' fifth signing this Summer, following the likes of; Alexis Sanchez, Mathieu Debuchy, David Ospina and Calum Chambers to the Emirates Stadium, and despite already spending over £50million, Arsene Wenger is keen to add a couple more faces. It's believed Wenger mainly wants a defensive midfielder and a back-up centre-back, just incase Thomas Vermaelen leaves, but a chance to take Costa on loan for the season may appeal to the Frenchman as well. The 23-year-old Brazilian has told the Ukrainian club that he doesn't want to return due to the political issues taking place in the country, and he has refused to return to the country after playing a friendly in France. It's believed Arsenal would pay a large loan-fee for the season, and then discuss a permanent move with Shakhtar next Summer.
Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger says the exodus of players from the Emirates Stadium is over
Falcao scores comeback goal to sink Arsenal Radamel Falcao scored his first goal since a six- month injury lay-off to earn Monaco a 1-0 win over Arsenal in the Emirates Cup friendly tournament in London on Sunday. The Colombia striker netted with a powerful first-half header to give Monaco victory in their final pre-season friendly before they open their Ligue 1 campaign at home to Lorient next Sunday. Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger handed a full debut to £30 million ($50.4 million, 37.6 million euros) new signing Alexis Sanchez, but the Chilean was eclipsed by Falcao, who missed the World Cup after damaging knee ligaments in January. Monaco's win handed victory in the four-team tournament to Valencia, who beat Benfica 3-1 earlier in the day at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium. Arsenal tackle Manchester City in the Community Shield at Wembley next weekend, before kicking off the Premier League season at home to Crystal Palace on August 16. Sanchez lined up in front of debutant Mathieu Debuchy on Arsenal's right ...
Arsene Wenger believes keeping Arsenal competitive in their barren years has been the most important achievement of his reign. Winning last season's FA Cup final gave the Gunners their first piece of silverware in nine years, a trophy drought which had seen some question whether the 64-year-old Frenchman was still the right man to take the club forward. Having delivered three Premier League titles since taking the reigns in 1996, Wenger has also overseen a move to the Emirates Stadium - a decision which left the club unable to compete financially with other title rivals for almost a decade. In the intervening years after leaving Highbury, Wenger still managed to guide Arsenal to top-four finishes in every season and finally ended his trophy jinx with a 3-2 win over Hull in May.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has already grabbed the headlines during this Transfer Window, signing Chile forward Alexis Sanchez. However, the ex-FC Barcelona star might not be the only big-name new arrival at the Emirates Stadium this summer. A deal r...
Arsenal Preparing £25m Transfer Swoop In Coming Days Gunners ready to make their move for Calum Chambers and Nani. Arsenal are ready to ramp up their summer transfer business once again, with Manager Arsene Wenger now plotting a double swoop from Premier League rivals that could cost the Gunners a cool £25 million. Reports in recent days have linked Arsenal with a move for winger Nani from potential title rivals Manchester United, with the Metro suggesting that new United manager Louis Van Gaal sees no place for the Portuguese in his new-look system and that a move to North London could be imminent. It now seems, however, that Nani could be joined at the Emirates Stadium by young Southampton right back Calum Chambers, who is being linked with a £16m move to the club in the coming days by the Daily Echo, the local paper on the South Coast. Chambers would initially offer cover to first choice right back Mathieu Debuchy, who has only signed for the Gunners from Newcastle United this summer, but would also ...
Exclusive: Arsenal Set to Unveil New £24m Signing On Monday, Personal Terms Agreed and Bid Accepted by Christian Bailey July 19th, 2014 Emirates Stadium to secure third high-profile summer signing within 48 hours. Arsenal will look to unveil German midfielder Sami Khedira as their third high-profile signing of the summer after the North London side registered a bid that has been accepted by La Liga side Real Madrid. CaughtOffside understands that the Gunners have spent the past three days locked in talks with the 27 year old battler’s representatives and have come to an agreement on personal terms and are confident a deal will be secured in the next 48 hours. Arsene Wenger rarely responds to transfer speculation but his decision to directly respond to speculation around the club’s efforts to land Khedira is something of a giveaway that the French boss believes his side will welcome in the former Stuttgart man on an imminent deal. Having secured the signings of Chilean Alexis Sanchez and Newcastle Uni ...
Alexis Sanchez says Arsenal's style of play under Arsene Wenger was a key factor in his £35m move from Barcelona. The Chile international, 25, has penned a long-term deal at Emirates Stadium and will join up with his new team-mates at the end of July. "Arsenal plays very well, which fits my style. That is why I moved here," he said. "Arsene Wenger's style of play is the sort of style the Chilean national team has, so therefore I am used to it." He added: "I know this club has a manager that looks after his players and takes care of them as well. He wants to achieve great things in football and that helped me make the decision to sign for Arsenal."
Thomas Vermaelen to complete Man Utd transfer? Manchester United and Arsenal have come to terms on a deal that will see club captain Thomas Vermaelen complete a transfer switch from the Emirates Stadium to Old Trafford. Vermaelen has struggled for regular first team action in recent seasons. The Belgium international has seemingly decided to make a transfer elsewhere after Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger agreed to sell the centre back. Whilst most Arsenal fans would prefer that their club captain would not make a move to bitter rivals Man Utd; most will forgive Vermaelen after his fall from grace since the decision of Manager Arsene Wenger to play Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny as first choice defenders. The Belgian is currently entering the final 12 months of his contract at the Gunners and will open talks with Louis Van Gaal as soon as the World Cup has finished.
Emirates Stadium side look to bring in World Cup star. Arsenal have made PSG attacker Ezequiel Lavezzi their number one transfer target according to The Sun. Read more Arsenal FC news . The experienced Argentine is apparently keen to leave the Parc des Princes and may be keen on a possible move to North London where Gunners boss Arsene Wenger will hope the 29 year old can provide some much needed quality in the final third. Lavezzi impressed greatly during his five season spell at Napoli, where he formed a great partnership with Uruguayan Edinson Cavani, but has been less effective in the French capital. Wenger is ready to shell out £15m for the adaptable forward, who can play in a central attacking role though is more effective on the flanks. Interest in Lavezzi may well be fueled by the fact that the North London side not only overly relied upon Olivier Giroud last season but also could be a push to address the fact that both Lukas Podolski and Theo Walcott have had their fair share of injury problems ...
Arsenal bid for Rodrigo Caio. Arsenal have made a £7million bid to bring Brazilian defender Rodrigo Caio to the club, according to reports. Speculation in South America when claiming that the FA Cup winners have made a formal offer for the player following his impressive performances at the recent Toulon tournament. The Gunners’ chief scout, Steve Rowley, was in attendance at the event in France, and reports a fortnight ago claimed he had advised the club to keep tabs on the Sao Paulo centre back. Less than two weeks later, it appears Arsenal have gone a step further, with Arsene Wenger making a significant offer for the teenager. Caio recently signed with super agent Jorge Mendes, and it’s claimed that Rowley has already had a meeting with him over the player. Mendes is looking to get the youngster a move to Europe. Arsenal could offer the centre back that platform, and his versatility means that he could also play in midfield for the Emirates Stadium outfit moving forward. The 20 year old would go ...
Arsenal & Chelsea want one of world's top 3 strikers in Mario Mandzukic. Arsenal and Chelsea are reportedly chasing one of the top three centre-forwards in the world and will only be able to land him because Pep Guardiola knows nothing about strikers. This is according to former Croatia manager Igor Stimac, who said that he believes Mario Mandzukic has very few rivals in the striker position. Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger has reportedly flown out to Brazil not only as a television pundit, but to secure a deal for one of three centre forwards and the Bayern Munich forward is top of the list. Meanwhile, Chelsea have also been credited with an interest in 28 year old former Wolfsburg striker. Whether it be Emirates Stadium or Stamford Bridge, Stimac believes whichever team gets him will be landing a supreme forward who can make contributions up front and at the back: "Mandzukic is definitely in the top three strikers in the world at the moment. Defensively and offensively he is an amazing player. “It’s n ...
Arsenal Following confirmation from Bacary Sagna that he is to leave the Emirates Stadium on a free transfer, a right-back is one of Arsene Wenger's main priorities this summer. Among those linked with a switch to North London is Southampton's Calum Chambers, who recently signed a new contract on the South Coast. Another thought to be in the frame is Toulouse full- back Serge Aurier , although Liverpool could provide competition for the 21- year-old. Meanwhile, further forward, Wenger could well have been alerted by Mario Mandzukic's revelation that he is looking to leave Bayern Munich. Aston Villa With Former Arsenal centre-back Philippe Senderos already over the line, it would seem that Paul Lambert is trying to get his transfer business done as early as possible. One arrival will not be Rio Ferdinand , though, after the club denied that they had made contact with the former Manchester United defender. Another player believed to be of interest for Lambert is Norwich City frontman Gary Hooper , although ...
Wenger & Arsenal will rue ignoring the chance to re-sign Fabregas The Frenchman has opted against activating the buyback clause in the Spaniard's Barcelona contract, paving the way for the 27-year-old to join Chelsea or Manchester City Jun 6, 2014 2:28:00 PM COMMENT By James Goldman Only if and when Cesc Fabregas trots out at the Emirates Stadium next season in light or royal blue will the full horror of what Arsene Wenger is seemingly comfortable with sanctioning hit home. Arsenal and their fans really should be immune to it by now. The sight of a former player raising silverware in rival colours has become the norm but the thought of Fabregas embracing Mourinho, flashing a winning smile side by side with John Terry will sting like nothing else.

Arsenal to Launch Club Record £45m Bid for Attacker as Arsene Wenger Begins Summer Spending Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is sizing up a big money move for Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus as he seeks to strengthen his Gunners attack.

How Wenger should improve his squad over the summer. The 2013/14 season was a solid if unremarkable one for Arsenal, who finished fourth in the Premier League once again, but did break their trophy drought by winning the FA Cup. However, after topping the English top tier for more days than any other side last term Arsene Wenger will be keen for his team to show more consistency and grit to hold onto a lead. Therefore the Frenchman is expected to enter the transfer market this summer and sign a number of new players and here are the five CaughtOffside thinks will help Wenger's men win the English title in 2014/15. Serge Aurier, Toulouse With Bacary Sagna having confirmed he is leaving the Emirates Stadium this summer when his contract expires, Wenger needs to find a new right-back - especially with question marks over the capabilities of backup Carl Jenkinson. The 64-year-old has been looking at several alternatives, but having impressed in Ligue 1 over the past 12 months Aurier remains the priority. Sour ...

Arsenal Transfer News: Cesc Fabregas Favours Gunners over Manchester United Cesc Fabregas is reported to favour a return to Arsenal over joining Manchester United, suggesting Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has a huge decision to make. The Spaniard, who left North London for a Barcelona return in 2011, will prioritise his former club if he is to be sold this summer, reported by Sami Mokbel of the Daily Mail: Sources close to Fabregas maintain his preferred destination should he return to the Premier League is the Emirates Stadium. Manchester United have been linked with a fresh move for Fabregas following the club's foiled attempt to sign him last summer. The Spaniard is also likely to attract Manchester City given he meets home-grown quota regulations. Nick Sutton of BBC Radio 4 reported the Sun's back page, which reinforces the story: Arsenal are known to have first option on the player that could cost in the region of £35 million, per John Cross of the Mirror.

Since Arsenal last won a trophy Chelsea have had nine different managers, Lionel Messi has won the Ballon d'Or four times and Dot Cotton is STILL in Eastenders For those of a certain age with longer memories, it doesn’t seem like yesterday that Arsenal captains were suffering shoulder pain from lifting so much silverware and dropping Steve Morrow on his head. Arsene Wenger won’t thank us for reminding him on the eve of Saturday’s FA Cup final against Hull City, but it is now nine years since the Gunners won a trophy, beating Manchester United at Wembley in the Cup Final’s first ever penalty shootout. May 21, 2005. Tony Blair and Labour had just been re-elected for a third term in power, and Axel F by Crazy Frog (no pun intended, Arsene) was about to begin a four-week stay at the top of the UK charts. In those long years since, Arsenal have left home and moved to the Emirates Stadium while Wenger has banked approximately £67.5million in wages. Here are a few other changes in the world since the Fr ...
Carlos Vela looks set for a return to Arsenal this summer after the Gunners reportedly activated a buy-back option in his Real Sociedad contract. Vela signed for Sociedad permanently in 2012 after a successful loan spell at the club, but Arsene Wenger inserted a clause which meant Arsenal could re-sign him during any Transfer Window – for just £3million. And after the Mexican scored 20 goals and bagged 13 assists this term, reports in Spain say Wenger has moved in to bring Vela back to the Emirates Stadium.
How the Emirates Stadium side could line-up in 2014/15 if Arsene Wenger secures the top talents he needs to help steer the Gunners to major silverware. Goalkeeper - Wojciech Szczesny Young Pole to retain his spot between the sticks. Made a few glaring errors in 2013/14 but on the whole is a safe pair of hands and a player with a bright future. Left-Back - Kieran Gibbs England man gets the nod over Nacho Monreal and has earned another season as first choice in the position. Centre-Back - Per Mertesacker German international has been rock solid this season, forming a near flawless partnership with Koscielny that may well lead to Thomas Vermaelen seeking a summer exit. Centre-Back - Laurent Koscielny Frenchman has been reliable as ever and is arguably one of Arsenal's most consistent performers and is sure to play a prominent role at the upcoming World Cup finals.

by Patrick Surlis Senior Writer published18 hours ago fan's football news!! Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has made Bayern Munich midfielder Javi Martinez his top transfer target this summer, but he's prepared to move for Lars Bender if Bayern Munich refuse to negotiate. According to the Daily Mail, Bender, a £20m target for the Gunners, remains under consideration at the Emirates Stadium but the sudden availability of Martinez has led Wenger to pause his pursuit of the Germany international. Reports have claimed Martinez is unsettled at the Allianz Arena after just a single season in the Bundesliga following his £32m move from Athletic Bilbao. He was a target for Wenger before opting for Bayern Munich, and Wenger remains a big fan of the 25-year-old. The report claims he wants to wait to see if Martinez would be interested in a move to Arsenal before pressing ahead for Bender if Martinez snubs him. Bender, also 25, is the more realistic target for Arsenal but Martinez would be the more high profile capture ...

Arsenal 1-0 West Brom: Giroud header enough for Gunners Olivier Giroud's 16th Premier League goal of the season sealed a 1-0 victory for Arsenal over West Brom at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday. The Frenchman met Santi Cazorla's left-wing corner with a powerful downward header in the 14th minute, ensuring Arsene Wenger's men picked up their fourth successive league win. VIEW FROM THE EMIRATES STADIUM By George Ankers Arsenal could have applied much more of a killer edge to this match but, in what was essentially a dead rubber, they did what they had to and no more. Olivier Giroud got the goal by taking advantage of weak marking at a first-half corner - though a late confrontation with Graham Dorrans might see him under a little scrutiny after the game. Mesut Ozil was the brightest spark, the man who least faded after the break, and Abou Diaby returned to the bench if not the pitch; the two biggest pluses for Arsene Wenger. The fans, meanwhile, were most concerned with loudly trying to convince Bacary Sagn ...

Arsenal climb back to fourth Last Updated: 21:38 15/04/14 Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud fired Arsenal back into the Premier League top four as the Gunners came from behind to defeat West Ham 3-1 at Emirates Stadium. Giroud's superb strike early in the second half helped secure a first win in five Premier League outings for the FA Cup finalists, who are now a point ahead of Everton in the race for the last Uefa Champions League berth, but have played a game more. Matt Jarvis had nodded the Hammers into the lead late in the first-half, but that appeared to rouse Arsene Wenger's men from a sluggish display and Podolski levelled before the interval, with the Germany international adding a third 12 minutes from time. Giroud had a good chance to break the deadlock with 14 minutes gone, but there was a lack of conviction in his attempt to get on the end of Podolski's cross on the edge of the six yard box and the opportunity went begging. West Ham had started strongly and came close to finding the net twice i ...
Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger, speaks out on the future of embattled striker Olivier Giroud at the Emirates Stadium.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger no longer views the Frenchman as part of his plans, despite the fact that he is his team’s top scorer this season with 19 goals in all competitions. The tabloid claims Wenger is still furious with Giroud over two breaches of discipline. The Sun claims Wenger will expect to fetch around £17million for Giroud, who arrived at the Emirates Stadium for £13m two years ago. Thoughts? Mine are that even tho it is the Sun newspaper and we shouldn't read into it but could maybe be some truth in this one(at the same time could just be a Sun newspaper writer that's making too much of Giroud starting from the bench in yesterdays semi-final as he could have just been rested) The Sun News
Time for all Arsenal fans to welcome a life without Arsene Wenger. No one can deny all the good Arsene Wenger has done for Arsenal Football Club but equally no one, one would have surmised, can also deny that he has presided over an extended period of failure that simply must not be allowed to continue. There are some who have made their minds up long ago as to whether Wenger is the man to continue to lead the Emirates Stadium side but now is perhaps the time to pause for thought and look at things in a calm, composed and logical manner. If you all emotion from the debate, admittedly next to impossible, and just look at the ‘facts on the ground’ and it seems fair to say the Arsene Wenger is nearing the end of the road. Even the securing of an FA Cup triumph, then bringing to an end a eight season silverware drought, will be diminished by the level of opposition left in the competition. Arsenal’s route to such success doesn’t even require them to defeat a top half of the Premier League which leaves ...
Everton entertain Arsenal on Sunday in what could prove to be the defining match in the race for a top four in the Barclays Premier League. Arsenal are in the driving seat for the final Uefa Champions League qualification spot, although a run of five consecutive wins has moved Everton to within four points of their visitors with a game in hand. That means another victory this weekend would put Roberto Martinez's side in control of their own destiny, with Arsenal's challenge faltering after a return of just 13 points from their last 10 Premier League outings.  The sides have met twice at the Emirates Stadium this season, drawing 1-1 in the league in December before Arsenal ran out 4-1 winners in the FA Cup quarter-final last month. Martinez, who is without captain Phil Jagielka (hamstring) and Steven Pienaar (knee), believes his side will have added motivation for the crucial clash following their Cup exit. "The game we played in the quarter-final of the FA Cup left us with a sour taste," said the Spa ...

The Gunners find themselves in the healthiest financial positions since moving to the Emirates Stadium in 2006 and are set to drive home that advantage by handing Arsene Wenger a £100m transfer budget. New sponsorship deals with Emirates and Puma have added around £40m a season to Arsenal's income while financial fair play restrictions are set to restrict their big-spending rivals. It makes Arsenal more competitive in this summer's Transfer Window than at any time in the last decade. Now Wenger is ready to dust off the chequebook after years of frugality and bid big for established world-class stars in a bid to establish themselves as Premier League title challengers. Amongst the list of world-class stars being cited as potential signing are Bayern Munich's Mandzukic, Schalke's Draxler and Porto's Martinez, who would all add attacking flair to the Arsenal line-up. It seems the emphasis in this summer's transfer market will be towards signing established attacking stars for Wenger, who has had to rely on ...

By Wayne Veysey | Chief Correspondent Arsenal have no plans to offer Mikel Arteta a contract extension as the club set their sights on a new central midfielder, Goal understands. The Spaniard will have only a year remaining on his current deal in the summer but has been ignored in the recent flurry of fresh contracts handed to senior players. Arteta's future beyond this season is up in the air as the Gunners target central midfield reinforcements with a transfer kitty for new signings, upwards of £100million. The Former Everton man has remained a first- team regular in his third season at Emirates Stadium but turned 32 on Wednesday and has noticeably struggled against top-class opposition this season. The lengthy absences of Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey have helped Arteta keep his place in the team as Arsene Wenger puts his faith in his experienced campaigner and a player regarded as a leader and strong character in the dressing room. But the Spaniard could be surplus to requirements in the summer if, ...
Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger was shocked by the booing that greeted his side from their own fans at half-time of Tuesday night's draw with Swansea City at Emirates Stadium.
England Posted on March 26, 2014 by john Wenger: This result hurts us a lot(AFP) Arsene Wenger admitted Arsenal have probably blown their chance of winning the English Premier League title after a frustrating 2-2 draw against Swansea City. Wenger’s side are six points behind leaders Chelsea with only seven games left following the latest setback to their spluttering challenge at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday.
Arsene Wenger Marks his 1000th matches for arsenal from 1996 - 2014 Moved Arsenal from Highbury ( 38,419 (at closure), 73,000 (peak) ) to Emirates Stadium ( 60,338 capacity stadium ).in 2006 His ever biggest lost was 8-2 against Man Utd in 2011 His ever biggest win was 7 - 0 against Everton in 2005.

Arsenal exited the Champions League at the first knockout stage for the fourth year in a row after drawing at holders Bayern Munich. A dominant Bayern, leading 2-0 from the first leg, had a Javi Martinez volley ruled out for offside before the break. Bastian Schweinsteiger gave Bayern the lead from close range before Lukas Podolski shot high into the net to level the score on the night. Thomas Muller had a late penalty saved as Bayern won 3-1 on aggregate. Arsenal's European exit leaves them just two more chances to end a nine-year trophy drought this season. Arsene Wenger's men are in the FA Cup semi-final and seven points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea. The damage was done in the first leg at Emirates Stadium, where Arsenal will rue an early missed penalty by Mesut Ozil and the dismissal of goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny. Few gave the Gunners much chance of overturning the 2-0 deficit at the defending European and German champions, who won a record 16th Bundesliga game in a row against Wolfsburg on ...
Wenger not interested in Van Persie Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger is not keen on a potential deal to take Robin Van Persie back to Emirates Stadium, with the Dutchman currently unsettled at Manchester United.
Wojciech Szczęsny Red Card, Bayern Munich embarrass Arsenal 0-2 Goal Toni Kroos and Thomas Mueller became determinant of outcome Champions League between Arsenal vs Bayern Munich ended with the score 0-2. Coloured penalty of failure of each camp and a red card to goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, victory in the first leg round of 16 Champions League makes the odds champions to qualify for the quarter-finals wide open. Shown at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday (20/2) the visitors in the match Bayern Munich vs Arsenal down with pure striker Mario Mandzukic Pep Guardiola in the typical scheme of 4-1-4-1. Instead, Arsene Wenger should cover chaotic injury, choose Yaya Sanogo as the main striker. Plus put The Ox- Mesut Ozil-Santi Cazorla behind. The host actually get a chance major in seven minutes. Dante was charged with infringement in the box. Penalty awarded by referee Nicola Rizzoli. But in scintillating Mesut Ozil penalty that leads straight to the middle broken by Manuel Neuer. Arsenal's luck worsened afte ...
Manchester City and Arsenal were beaten 2-0 at home in the first legs of their last-16 ties, and it is difficult to see either of them turning that deficit around against Barcelona and Bayern Munich respectively. It was a pair of penalties, and red cards, that helped kill off City and the Gunners, but they were already a distant second best in terms of passing and possession when they were reduced to 10 men. That is likely to be the same in each second leg too. So City boss Manuel Pellegrini and Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger not only have to win, they have to do it without having the dominance of the ball they are used to when they play in the Premier League. Best in Premier League, but not in Europe In both first-leg games, at Etihad Stadium and Emirates Stadium, we saw the difference between the best teams in Europe and the best in the Premier League when it comes to keeping the ball. In those categories, City and the Gunners are two of the top-ranked teams in England's top flight but, even when it ...

End of the Road: Why the Time is Right for Arsenal to Say Goodbye to Arsene Wenger by Mark Apostolou March 10th, 2014 Comments Arsene Wenger Arsenal It’s always hard to Say Goodbye but sometimes you know the time is right to bring a lengthy relationship to an end. Arsene Wenger’s current Arsenal contract comes to an end in a matter of months and whilst speculation is rife about a possible new deal being prepared for the French manager this may be the opportune time for the North London club to shake the 64 year old manager by the hand and wish him all the best, with the memory of the very real success he presided over still being accessible somewhere in the far reaches of the mind. A kind FA Cup draw could well mean that Wenger could bow out with his hands on a trophy before leaving the Emirates Stadium, perhaps en route back to Ligue 1 and maybe even a return to his former club AS Monaco. It won’t be easy to imagine Arsenal without Wenger at the helm, you can’t just easily replace a boss of 18 ye ...

If Arsene Wenger feels beating Everton 4-1 in Emirates Stadium means Arsenal is ready & inspired to face Bayern in Allianz Arena on Wednesday, he shouldd be mindful that same Bayern warmed up for same game with 6-1 trouncing of Wolfsburg away from home inside VW arena. Interesting game ahead.
Steady online. (Former Everton midfielder Mikel Arteta put Arsenal back in front from the spot, then Olivier Giroud struck twice as Arsene Wenger's men boosted their hopes of ending their nine-year trophy drought with a 4-1 victory at the Emirates Stadium.)
Much of the pressure is on the hosts, who produced a determined effort to sneak past Liverpool in the last round. The FA Cup is the trophy that Arsenal have the best chance of winning, particularly after a disappointing league defeat to Stoke City last time out, so Manager Arsene Wenger must be quick to ensure that his players are focused, with the second leg of their Champions League tie with Bayern Munich coming up on Tuesday. Everton were given a great deal of respect for their performance at the Emirates Stadium in December, gaining a late point thanks to Gerard Deulofeu. They enter this one looking for a first trophy in 19 years, but with renewed confidence after ending a recent slump with a narrow victory over West Ham United. And with the match-winner that day, Romelu Lukaku, set to return to the starting XI, they may fancy their chances. Arsenal are now without Jack Wilshere in what is another major injury setback. The England international will miss six weeks and thus joins Abou Diaby, Theo Walco ...
Premier League Team of the Week: Star man Giroud joined by Sturridge & Wilshere Feb 24, 2014 7:20:00 AM Following Arsenal's 4-1 win over Sunderland on Saturday, four players from Arsene Wenger's side make their way into our Team of the Week, while six players enter our XI for the first time this season. Among the debutants is Hull City goalkeeper Allan McGregor (3.5), who kept a clean sheet as Steve Bruce's men coasted to a 4-0 win over Cardiff City. The first of our Arsenal players who make the side this week is right-back Bacary Sagna (4), who received a glowing review from Ewan Roberts at the Emirates Stadium: "Played like a winger, bombing forward at every opportunity and stretching the play. His energetic overlaps were a constant nuisance for Sunderland, forcing them backwards. Defended well, even when moved to left-back and then centre-back. Arsenal simply must persuade him to renew his expiring deal." Two players on opposing teams at Stamford Bridge make up our partnership in central defence as Che ...
Arsene Wenger has likened Tomas Rosicky 's virtuoso performance in Arsenal 's 4-1 win over Sunderland to that of Gunners legend Dennis Bergkamp. The influential Czech playmaker netted a contender for goal of the season on Saturday afternoon, with his clever dinked finish the culmination of a sequence of flicks and first- times passes. Bergkamp, who spent 11 seasons in North London, was in attendance at Emirates Stadium for the unveiling of a statue in his honour and Wenger is sure the Dutchman would have enjoyed Rosicky's display. "I think we scored two great Arsenal goals. One of them being scored by Olivier Giroud, one of them by Rosicky," the French manager told reporters. "I am very pleased for Rosicky, because today Bergkamp got the statue and I think Rosicky took on the role of Bergkamp today, because he scored a goal as well. "Certainly Dennis would have been pleased to see him play." Giroud netted twice before Rosicky grabbed Arsenal's third of the game on the stroke of half-time, with Laurent Kos ...
On Saturday three of the Premier League title contenders were in action, and they were all embroiled in late drama, battling displays and most importantly… crucial wins. Chelsea beat Everton with a late, late winner at Stamford Bridge, Manchester City edged out Stoke with a workmanlike display, Manchester United’s star duo of RVP and Wayne Rooney saw off Palace and Arsenal battered Sunderland at the Emirates Stadium. Elsewhere there were big wins for Hull City and West Ham United, while relegation battlers West Brom and Fulham drew. LATEST Premier League STANDINGS So, in case you missed any of the mesmeric action from the PL on Saturday, below are the recaps, analysis and some video highlights to give you everything you need to catch up. Drink it in, my friends.

MERTESACKER REFUSES TO DWELL ON UCL DEFEAT Per Mertesacker has warned Arsenal must "switch off" from the disappointment of their UCL defeat to Bayern Munich to avoid losing ground in the domestic title race. The Gunners lost 2-0 to the reigning European champions at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night in a match where club-record signing Mesut Ozil had a tame early penalty saved and goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny was then sent off for tripping Arjen Robben in the box. Bayern full-back David Alaba sent the resultant spot-kick against the post but there was to be no great escape for the English side as eventually Bayern's patient build-up was rewarded when Manchester United target Toni Kroos fired home a 20-yard effort and substitute Thomas Muller headed in a late second to all but kill off the tie. Arsenal must now regroup for Saturday's visit of relegation battlers Sunderland when Arsene Wenger's side will look to keep pace in the race for the Barclays Premier League title. "We will concentrate on Satur ...
Daily Mail Arsene Wenger has accused Arjen Robben of diving to get Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny sent off which led to a 2-0 defeat by Bayern Munich. Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny could face disciplinary action from UEFA after appearing to make an obscene gesture following his dismissal against Bayern Munich. Manchester City defender Martin Demichelis has taken the blame for his red card against Barcelona in the Champions and said he does not blame the referee for sending him off. Man Utd boss David Moyes was in stands to watch the Toni Kroos masterclass as the Bayern Munich midfielder's valuation went through the roof at the Emirates Stadium. Former Real Madrid sporting director Jorge Valdano claims that Gareth Bale seems 'downcast' in Spain as he struggles to cope with his world record transfer fee and the emergence of youngster Jese Rodriguez. THE SUN Cesc Fabregas has responded to Jose Mourinho's claims that this current Barcelona team is the worst for many years, by saying he should shut up ...
Arsenal v Bayern Munich: The win that kick-started a Gunners revival Comments (276) Arsenal face Champions League holders Bayern Munich at Emirates Stadium after taking two significant steps on the road to recovery from their public humiliation at Liverpool. Manager Arsene Wenger knew his side needed a response to that 5-1 defeat at Anfield with their season reaching defining moments on three fronts. This has been achieved with a solid, if unspectacular, clean sheet in the goalless draw at home to Manchester United and then by exacting revenge on Liverpool with an FA Cup fifth round victory at the Emirates. So with the Premier League ship steadied and FA Cup progress secured, the greatest test of all now comes in the shape of a last-16 Champions League meeting with Bayern, arguably Europe's finest side now under the guidance of coach Pep Guardiola, twice a winner in this competition with Barcelona. And with confidence being rebuilt in the past week, can Arsenal take further solace in their victory in The ...
Man Utd happy with 0-0 draw at Arsenal FC Manchester United manager David Moyes said his side were in control of Wednesday night's goalless draw against Arsenal at Emirates Stadium. Former Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie had the best two chances for United, and although Arsene Wenger's side went close late in the game, Moyes was happy with the result. "It was a fair result in a tight game," he told BT Sport.
In the space of one phone call and email this afternoon I experienced a myriad and a plethora (basically, a lot!) of emotions. I received an enquiry from an agency asking if I was free for a party at the Emirates Stadium (where Arsenal play). It turns out one of the player's sons had seen me before and wanted me for his birthday. I was already booked and couldn't do it but these were the various emotions I went through: 1. Sadness that I couldn't do it and potentially meet some Premiership players. Also sadness that I wouldn't have the opportunity to try and magically convert their children to Liverpool fans. 2. Relief that I couldn't do it as I support Liverpool and still have nightmares about Michael Thomas scoring in 1989 to *** the title from us in the last minute. 3. Regret that I wouldn't be able to do the milk trick on the dad, spill the entire contents over his head, scream, "That's revenge for Michael Thomas in '89," and then run off. I hadn't really thought beyond running off and the reality ...
Arsenal drop Ghanaian Daniel Boateng from Champions League squad English giants Arsenal have dropped Ghanaian youth defender Daniel Boateng from their Uefa Champions League squad for the knock-out phase. The 21-year-old enterprising center-back is among five players who have been dropped by the Gunners (including Emmanuel Frimpong who signed for Barnsley). Boateng, who capped the Gunners at U19 and U21, left the Emirates Stadium to join Scottish side Hibernian on loan on the final day of the Uefa Champions League and Manager Arsene Wenger took his name out of their squad. Though Boateng was in squad for the group phase he did not play any game for the club and had not played a competitive league game this season before he left to to the Easter Road Stadium.

Arsenal Transfer News: Mario Mandzukic Targeted After Robert Lewandowski Failure Robert Lewandowski's signature would be very welcome at Emirates Stadium right now, so it will pain Arsenal fans to learn details of Arsene Wenger's failed attempts to sign the Borussia Dortmund striker over the past 18 months. However, the Gunners chief will now attempt to bring in the man Lewandowski might eventually replace once his Bayern Munich move comes to fruition, with an approach for Mario Mandzukic hinted at by Wenger. BBC Sport reported at the weekend that Lewandowski's long-envisioned transfer to the Allianz Arena will go through on July 1, the Polish international having signed a pre-contract agreement this month. And Wenger delved into his own experiences of trying to bring the Black and Yellows striker to North London, quoted by Neil Ashton of the Daily Mail saying: Yes we looked into Lewandowski but honestly he signed for Bayern one and a half years ago, everyone knows that. They can only make it official now ...
Wenger experience trumps Sherwood enthusiasm Tim Sherwood is the 11th Tottenham manager to cross Arsene Wenger's path since his appointment at Arsenal - and his task of succeeding where others have failed was laid out within 90 minutes. It was only in March that Andre Villas-Boas made a comment that has achieved some notoriety when he suggested a North London derby victory for Spurs had sent Arsenal, and by association Wenger, into a "negative spiral". Fast forward 10 months and the sacked Villas-Boas awaits his next employment opportunity as Wenger presides over a rejuvenated Arsenal on top of the Premier League and into the FA Cup fourth round after a comfortable 2-0 win over their fiercest rivals at Emirates Stadium. As Spurs chairman Daniel Levy changes tack once more, Arsenal remain steadfast in their desire for continuity and faith in Wenger, despite his failure to win a trophy since 2005's FA Cup. And after a spell when the gap appeared to be closing between the two clubs, with hints that Spurs mig ...
ARSENAL 0 CHELSEA 0 Premier League Ten and counting. Ten occasions on which Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho have met as managers; ten occasions on which Wenger has failed to win. The architect of his frustration stood imperious on the outer reaches of the technical area throughout this, the latest rain-blasted edition of their rivalry. It was Mourinho’s night, in more ways than one. He will have felt most pleased with the result, his team turned in the better performance, and the inhospitable conditions reflected his gameplan. Chelsea were not negative, but they were constant, cussed, spoiling, much like the rain that drenched the Emirates Stadium and many within. Chelsea’s organisation won the day, as did the weather. It was a night on which it was impossible to play the beautiful game, and Chelsea settle more happily into the ugly side of things. They resisted Arsenal defiantly, broke more threateningly on the counter attack. Arsenal were limp and ineffectual for long periods. Wenger had sough ...
'Boring, boring Chelsea' chanted the Arsenal fans at Jose Mourinho after Monday's drab 0-0 draw in the Premier League, and the Portuguese coach did not disagree. "I agree, I've played against (Arsenal) 10 times and never lost, what more do you call me?" Mourinho, who once again won the tactical battle against Arsene Wenger at a rainswept Emirates Stadium, told reporters. "What are they going to say? 'Funny, Funny Jose'? Ten times and they don't win once.

Arsenal F.C. :: “One of the Most Successful Clubs in English Football” Arsenal was Founded in 1886 by workers at the Royal Arsenal in Woolwich, south-east London, and was renamed Royal Arsenal shortly afterwards. The club was renamed again to Woolwich Arsenal after becoming a limited company in 1893. The club became the first southern member of the Football League in 1893, starting out in the Second Division, and won promotion to the First Division in 1904. The club's success in the late 1990s and first decade of the 21st century owed a great deal to the 1996 appointment of Arsène Wenger as manager. Wenger brought new tactics, a new training regime and several foreign players who complemented the existing English talent. Home Ground :: Emirates Stadium.

Arsene Wenger has agreed the terms of a new Arsenal contract that will keep him at the club until 2016, Goal can reveal. The Frenchman is set to formally sign the two-year extension to his current deal within the next few weeks. Goal understands that the fresh agreement will be on the same £7.5 million-a-year terms as Wenger's current contract, which expires next summer, and, while the club's longest-serving manager will not receive a pay rise, the deal will be supplemented by top-ups. The new contract will end the uncertainty surrounding Wenger's future and extend his Arsenal reign to a remarkable 20 years if it is honoured, by which time he will be 66. Wenger retained the full backing of American owner Stan Kroenke and the rest of the board, even when he came under more pressure last season from disgruntled supporters than at any point in his Arsenal career, and he has now agreed in principle to remain at the Emirates Stadium.

In his first AGM since taking over from Peter Hill-Wood, Sir Chips Keswick began by paying tribute to the former chairman.

Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger has revealed how he would always tell his players to "forget the money" and instead concentrate on the experience of the game. Since the London giants won the FA Cup in 2005, they are yet to clinch any silverware under Wenger, and that sobering fact had the fans doubting the manager's capabilities. What happened was a series of departures of the club's best players, with the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Alex Song, Samir Nasri and Robin Van Persie leaving the Emirates Stadium, causing fans to call for Wenger to spend. But the French tactician kept Arsenal a profitable and financially-stable enterprise despite those losses, and Wenger believes it all boils down to forgetting the money.
Mesut Ozil: Arsenal midfielder has fans daring to dream again The famous clock perched high at one end of Emirates Stadium had us eight minutes into Arsenal's Champions League meeting with Rafael Benitez's Napoli, the supposed dark horses in the hazardous Group F. Olivier Giroud flicked the ball along the line to Aaron Ramsey, two of the symbols of Arsenal's recent renaissance joining forces to open up the left side of Napoli's defence. Ramsey broke into the area, took a look and picked out Mesut Ozil on the edge of the area. Ozil, a deadly combination of grace and danger, barely broke stride or sweat to sweep a precise side-foot finish out of the reach of diving Napoli keeper Pepe Reina to give Arsenal an advantage they were never in danger of surrendering. Mesut Ozil factfile Born: Gelsenkirchen, Germany Age: 24 Previous clubs: Schalke, Werder Bremen, Real Madrid International: 49 caps for Germany, 15 goals Honours: Spanish Super Cup (2012), La Liga (2011-12), Copa del Rey (2011), DFB Cup (2009), DFL Su ...
Inspired by Ozil, Arsenal dare to dream again By Eurosport | Pitchside Europe – 6 hours ago Email Share There may come a time – and it may well be very soon – when we need to have a serious conversation about Arsenal being a very good team again. Pathological underachievers in recent years under Arsene Wenger, the smell of change is in the air at Emirates Stadium, just as surely as the leaves brown and the chill begins to descend at this time of year. A dominant, significant 2-0 win over Napoli in the Champions League on Tuesday night showcased this new incarnation of Arsenal at an extremely impressive level – especially in a mesmerising first half as they combined superbly to cut through Rafa Benitez's Italians at will with a torrent of precise passing moves. As he starts his 18th year in charge of the club, the past five or so of which have been fraught with such crushing disappointment, one can begin to detect rumblings that Wenger may have finally constructed a new team worthy of comparison wi ...
Rich Kitto reckons Arsene Wenger can prove his doubters wrong once and for all this season as Arsenal continue to go from strength to strength. Albert Einstein once noted that the definition of insanity was doing the same thing over again and expecting different results. Arsene Wenger, the man dubbed The Scientist by Arsenal supporters, may have that definition in his mind regarding those in the media and across the land that consistently question his ability as each new football season approaches. The comments this summer were no different to the last, especially after the opening day defeat to Aston Villa at Emirates Stadium - everybody else around them had strengthened, the Gunners had apparently been weakened, they don't know how to grind results, they never spend big, and this is year they won't make the top four. Of course, just as Jamie Redknapp said recently in the face of criticism from Jose Mourinho, everybody is entitled to their own opinion. But typically history dictates the path for the futu ...
Arsenal days of title pretender are over. They are genuine EPL title contender this season. Arsene Wenger continues to prove his critics wrong; British media & a section of Gunners fans accept they got it wrong. After 93 years at Highbury, Arsene Wenger and Arsenal waved goodbye to the Marble Halls and made the short journey to the new state-of-the-art Emirates Stadium. The Frenchman had single-handedly turned around the fortunes of the North London club, introducing training methods and dietary demands previously unheard of in England. Most importantly for the Gunners faithful however, was Wenger's ability to win numerous titles playing a simply breathtaking style of football. The pinnacle of the Frenchman's managerial career has to be the title-winning season of 2003/04, when he guided the North London giants throughout the whole season without losing, an undefeated run which lasted a record 49 matches. Wenger showed great judgement on the transfer market while at Highbury, making the astute signings of ...
Arsene Wenger: "We have Emirates Stadium but they just have the cup:("
With a reported £70m burning a hole in the pocket of Arsene Wenger's long grey trousers, Arsenal fans across the country will be hoping he spends it wisely. This, after all, may be Arsene's last summer at the Emirates Stadium to build a squad capable of winning a title. The biggest problem for Wenger and his team last year was dropping points against the top teams. If they want to compete for trophies, Arsenal need a bigger more potent squad that will give the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United a run for their money. Here are the five signings that could make Arsenal champions again. 1. Asmir Begovic | Stoke City The plain fact is, despite his youth, Wojciech Szczesny is not good enough. They often say that the team winning the championship has a keeper who gains them 12 points a season. I admit that Szczesny has improved but you only have to look at his Carling Cup final mistake against Birmingham City and his omission against Bayern Munich earlier this year to see he hasn't the men ...

Andre Santos disappointed by Arsenal return Full-back Andre Santos is not looking forward to his return to Arsenal after a spell on loan at Gremio ended with no sign of a permanent deal.

During his time at Gremio, the 30-year-old made 14 appearances, losing only four matches, and was hoping to extend his stay with the club.

Gremio had an agreement with Arsenal and I have to return. “I wanted to stay. Gremio were fair regarding everything. I felt well there and I wanted to win a title before leaving. “Unfortunately there is no deal and I had to return to Arsenal.” Santos has not had the best of times in London since his arrival from Fenerbahce, making just 23 appearances un ...
