SPORTS NEWZ 23 JAN FRIDAY Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has backed-up his ex-England team-mate Jamie Carragher by ripping into the craze of taking post-match dressing room pictures. Speaking on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football show, Sportsmail columnist Carragher criticised Aaron Ramsey and his Arsenal team-mates for taking a snap behind the scenes at the Etihad after their 2-0 win against Manchester City last weekend. Three of Fifa's biggest sponsors - Castrol, Continental and Johnson & Johnson - have severed ties with football's beleaguered world governing body. Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville will decide in the next 18 months whether he wants to leave his job as a television pundit and go into management.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has praised Alexis Sanchez’ "amazing" quality after the Chilean inspired Arsenal to a 3-0 victory over Stoke City on Sunday. Alexis set up the opening goal for Laurent Koscielny on six minutes before striking twice himself to take his goal tally to 19 in all competitions and seal a deserved win for Arsene Wenger's men. With 13 goals and seven assists, the Chilean has now been directly involved in over half of Arsenal's 37 Premier League goals this season and Oxlade-Chamberlain has no doubts about his team-mate's talent. "Alexis is amazing. He shows it week in week out and that's the most important thing for top players to do," Oxlade-Chamberlain told Sky Sports. "It's about consistency and it's not good enough to just be good one week, everyone wants to see you being great every week. "Alexis has done that all the way through the season. He was brilliant again today with two good goals and obviously he set Laurent's goal up as well. Hopefully it continues for him because he's ha ...

The Frenchman has admitted his side face more immediate problems than chasing down the Premier League leaders Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger insists that he has "different worries" than being concerned about Chelsea's progress at the top of the table. After the midweek draw with Anderlecht, the Gunners were again guilty of throwing away points against Swansea City on Sunday as goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson and Bafetimbi Gomis secured a 2-1 win for the hosts at the Liberty Stadium. The result leaves Arsenal 12 points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea although Wenger is more concerned with winning games than worrying about Chelsea and their lead at the top. He told Sky Sports: "At the moment we have different worries than that. We just lost a game that we feel we shouldn't have lost. We have to live in a realistic world, in football you have to win the games you can win and today was one. If you want to challenge for the Premier League, you have to be a bit more realistic than we were today." Quizzed over ...
WATCH: Sky Sports had a special gift for Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger, who was celebrating his 65th birthday.
Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger was relieved to declare his side have their Champions League Group D destiny in their own hands after their dramatic late win against Anderlecht in Brussels. Late goals from Kieran Gibbs and a dramatic winner from Lukas Podolski handed the Gunners what was an unlikely victory on a night when they struggled to hit top form, with the dramatic finish to the game handing Wenger a perfect 65th birthday present. "We looked to control the game in the first half and controlled their counter attacks well," Wenger told Sky Sports. "In the second half we opened up and defensively got caught. "After that, the crucial point was when we were 1-0 down and they couldn't take advantage with the chance for the second goal. We kept going, managed to score two good goals and showed we had the spirit to win the game. "The group is in our hands. Let's first qualify and then see how far we can go." Wenger expressed his hope that the late comeback will kick-start an Arsenal season that has struggled ...

Arsene Wenger will meet with Mario Balotelli's agent Mino Raiola on Saturday as Arsenal close in on the £25 million signing of the Italy striker, Goal understands. Wenger is currently in Brazil working as a pundit for French TV and will hold talks with super-agent Raiola in an attempt to broker Arsenal's first major deal of the summer. Wenger is ready to spend up to £25m on the 23-year-old former Manchester City striker, who has scored 28 goals in 51 appearances for AC Milan since returning to Serie A in January 2013. The Gunners boss is understood to be in the market for a marquee striker again this summer after missing out on the likes of Luis Suarez and Gonzalo Higuain 12 months ago, leaving Olivier Giroud as the club’s only recognised senior centre-forward. Raiola revealed earlier on Tuesday that "anything is possible" as regards to the possibility of Balotelli signing for Arsenal during the close season. "Arsenal are a fantastic club," he told Sky Sports when asked about the report. "Only eight o ...

Wenger broke the club's transfer record last August when he signed midfielder Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid for £42m.

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.

Wilshere gets help from critic Scholes Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has sought advice on how to improve his game from Paul Scholes in the wake of the Former Manchester United man criticising his lack of progress. "He was right in a certain way," said Wilshere, who made his England debut at 18. "We had quite a good chat. "He explained it a bit better and told me what he thought I should work on." Wilshere made 24 league appearances for Arsenal this season as the Gunners finished in the Champions League qualification spots for the 17th consecutive year. Arsene Wenger's side looked likely to launch a title challenge, but heavy defeats by Liverpool and Chelsea hampered their campaign. A 2-2 draw with Swansea prompted Scholes to be critical of both Arsenal and Wilshere while working as a pundit for Sky Sports, views which Wenger strongly disagreed with. "When I first burst onto the scene there was all this noise and then I got injured," added Wilshere, who says he spoke to his family and contacted Gary Nev ...

Arsene Wenger has hit back at Paul Scholes after the Former Manchester United midfielder's scathing criticism of Arsenal. The Arsenal chief responded after Scholes claimed Arsenal are 'a million miles away from winning the title' and questioned the leadership quality of the team and their 'tippy-tappy football'. Wenger said: 'If six points is a million miles away, then I don't know what the translation from a mile into a point is. Everybody has opinions, people who have managed zero games have opinions and we have to accept that. 'What you live is what you do on the pitch, and all the rest is only opinions. We are in a society where there are thousands of opinions every day, and some go for you and some go against you. You have to live with that. Scholes was in the Sky Sports studio for the Manchester derby, and he criticised the Gunners after they were held to a 2-2 draw by Swansea at the Emirates.
Manchester City will look to compound Arsene Wenger's woes when they visit the Emirates Stadium this weekend, knowing a win would take them closer to the Premier League title and inflict a potentially fatal blow to Arsenal's chances. Wenger's side have capitulated in recent weeks and a win for Manuel Pellegrini's team in London would almost certainly leave the battle for the Premier League crown as a three-way race between City, Liverpool and Chelsea. Arsenal, humiliated 6-0 at leaders Chelsea and held to a 2-2 home draw by Swansea City after conceding a last-minute equaliser on Tuesday, would have hoped for an easier match to revive their ailing title bid. City lie third with 66 points, three behind Chelsea but with two games in hand, and they will look to build on their impressive 3-0 win at bitter local rivals Manchester United on Tuesday.

Scholes takes a dig at Arsenal - 26 March 2014, 13:12 Once one of Arsenal's chief tormentors on the pitch, Paul Scholes dissected the Gunners with a withering verbal assault after a home draw with Swansea City on Tuesday ended any hope of a late Premier League title charge. The Former Manchester United midfielder was known for letting his boots do the talking during a glittering Old Trafford career but when asked to pick over the pieces of Arsenal's season, he held nothing back. "It was a typical week for Arsenal really," Scholes, who was working for Sky Sports as a pundit, said after the Gunners drew 2-2 with Swansea City, three days after a 6-0 drubbing at the hands of Chelsea in Arsene Wenger's 1 000th game in charge. "They capitulated at Chelsea and it seems to be a similar theme again at the top teams. "It happened at Liverpool. They conceded six against Man City and for one reason or another players seem to go missing... "It seems like they go on the pitch with no discipline. "It's as though four, f ...
I am sure that I am not the only Arsenal fan who wants Arsene Wenger to alter his priorities a bit in the next six days. He would normally prioritise the Champions League over the FA cup with games in each coming within three days of each other, but has already hinted that he will field his strongest side against Everton on Saturday. That does not mean, of course, that the Gunners will give up on Europe and I think that two of our German players could be the key to pulling off a real shock. Lukas Podolski and Mesut Ozil really have something to prove against Bayern Munich and are both likely to start. Podolski probably won’t start against Everton, so will be fresh and has the extra incentive of having spent an unsuccessful time in Munich and wanting to book his place in the Germany World cup squad. And, in a Sky Sports report, he makes it clear that Arsenal feel they can beat Bayern as long as they play the sort of football we started with at the Emirates. Podolski said, “It is normal that no one beli ...

Ballack fears his compatriot has not been completely accepted by the rest of Arsene Wenger's team. "With his quality he should be untouchable and bring out so much in the team. But it looks like he does not have the acceptance of the team," he told Sky Sports.

Wenger unhappy Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger feels that Juan Mata’s imminent transfer to Manchester United is unfair, according to Sky Sports. The Spanish midfielder is set to move to Old Trafford for a fee of around £37million following a lack of playing time and current club Chelsea. Unfair Wenger feels that this deal is unfair mainly due to the reason that the Blues have already faced United twice this season, while the Gunners and Manchester City are still yet to play the champions for a second time. He said, as reported by Sky Sports: “I am surprised. Juan Mata is a great player and they sell a great player to a direct opponent. “Chelsea have already played twice against Man United, they could have sold him last week. “I think if you want to respect the fairness for everybody, this should not happen. “I can understand completely what Chelsea are doing, and they do not make the rules, but maybe the rules should be a bit more adapted for fairness.” Arsenal host David Moyes’ side on Febru ...

"Arsenal are in such a good position at the moment you just don't want to blow it in February or March because you haven't got a centre-forward.

Wengers tells Arsenal players to Believe and Succeed Wenger calls for another Bayern performance Ahead of his side’s crucial Champions League clash against Borussia Dortmund, the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has called on his team to take belief from last season’s victory over Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena as the Gunners hope to be the first team to breach the German side’s perfect home record at the Signal Iduna Park this season. After being beaten 3-1 at the Emirates last campaign, Arsene Wenger’s side went on to be the only team to beat the competition’s eventual winners and were only a goal away from clinching a place in the Quarter-finals. Arsenal are certainly a force to be reckoned with on the road and the French manager is confident his team can deliver once again in Germany. Speaking in his pre-match press conference reported by Sky Sports, Wenger said: “We take belief from Bayern. We play everywhere to win and that will not change of course, we will have a positive attitude in our ...
Arsene Wenger bemoaned defensive naivety in Arsenal's 2-0 defeat to Chelsea that saw his side exit the Capital One Cup. Confusion in the Gunners backline at a rapid counter-attack allowed Cesar Azpilicueta to put the Blues ahead in the first half, while a rasping shot from Juan Mata doubled the lead after the break. Arsenal were unable to convert pressure into chances and left the competition before the quarter- finals for the first time in 11 years, but Wenger drew some satisfaction from the display by a side that had eight changes from his previous selection. "We played at a very good pace, what happened is that we were a bit naive in some situations because some players lack experience," Wenger told Sky Sports. "The first goal is a corner for us, then a goal for them, but overall we did well. "We played with a good attitude, determination and pace, overall it was a tight game that was decided by one or two opportunities on Chelsea's side. They exploited our mistakes.
Wenger on ‘absolutely amazing’ Ozil & outstanding first half: Arsene Wenger praised Mesut Ozil’s ‘absolutely amazing’ first half performance as the German engineered an outstanding 2-0 win for Arsenal against Napoli. The midfielder cushioned a fantastic opener on eight minutes, his first for his new club, before teeing up Olivier Giroud seven minutes later as the Gunners overran their Serie A opponents before the break. Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Wenger gave a glowing assessment of his £42 million man: “First half, [he was] absolutely amazing, fantastic. Everything was in there – collective skill, individual skill, finishing, all that you dream to see. “When it takes too long to score it is always on your mind a little bit, so he got rid of that.” Asked if his side’s opening 45 minutes was their best of the season so far, Wenger continued: “I think so, especially in the first half. I felt that we played at a good pace technically, were direct and finished with great goal ...

Gervinho has no intention of leaving Friday, May 31 Despite a lot of speculation about his future, with links in recent days to Lyon and Marseille, Gervinho says he wants to stay at Arsenal and fight for his place in the team. The erratic Ivorian scored 7 goals last season but will be best remembered for his miss against Bradford, but the former Lille man is determined to recharge his batteries and come back stronger next season. “I have a contract until 2015 with Arsenal and I intend to honour it,” he told Sky Sports. “There is always speculation in the papers, but I am looking forward to a good holiday and to come back to Arsenal. I want to win my place in the starting line-up week in, week out.” To be fair to him, in both his seasons at the club he’s had to go away to the African Cup of Nations, which is hardly ideal on any level. It remains to be seen if his desire to stay is matched by Arsene Wenger’s to keep him as the Gunners look to improve their squad ahead of the new campaign. ~rz-11

boss Arsene Wenger has reportedly 'admitted his interest in signing' Sky Sports. Interesting.
The Gunners' all-time leading goalscorer believes his former club should strive for more and hopes their delight on the final day was because they had finished above their rivals Arsenal legend Thierry Henry hopes his former club were celebrating on the final day of the season because they beat Tottenham to a top-four finish - and not because they qualified for the Champions League. The Gunners triumphed over Newcastle on the Premier League's final day to finish above their North London adversaries and clinch the final spot in Europe's premier club competition. As a fan of the club, Henry admits that finishing above Spurs feels like winning a trophy but believes finishing in the top four should be considered the minimum expectation for Arsene Wenger's team. "For me as a fan or if I was a player at Arsenal, finishing in the top four would have been normal," Henry told Sky Sports.

Arsenal legend Paul Merson has expressed his horror at the Gunners’ display against Manchester United and slated Arsene Wenger's tactical approach to the game. The Red Devils were rampant at Old Trafford, astonishingly beating the visitors 8-2 after a hat-trick from Wayne Rooney and two goals from Ashley Young. Merson, who spent 11 years as a player with Arsenal, said he was disgusted by what he had witnessed on the pitch. “It is definitely the worst day for Arsene Wenger in charge and it is even the worst day for a long time in Arsenal’s history. Since I started there in 1984, I cannot remember much worse than what we have seen here. It was shocking, just shocking,” said the Sky Sports pundit. “There are much lesser teams with much less talent than Arsenal who will come to Old Trafford this season and make it doubly as difficult as they did today. “You have got to have tactics - you can’t just have a Plan A, you have to have a plan B. The way Wenger set up wasn’t good enough. You can’t ...

After news broke that Arsenal were pushing hard to sign David Villa for Barcelona, a couple of sources spoke up to claim the deal wasn't occurring at all. Spanish journalist and general Barcelona mouthpiece Guillem Balague was incredibly dismissive, stating Barcelona weren't interested in selling, and that the Villa situation was 'case closed until summer'. This was followed by Sky Sports' Bryan Swanson reporting that Arsenal themselves had denied being in talks with Villa. Not so fast However, this is silly season, and even the most reliable sources can look silly themselves. Balague has changed his mind more times than Arsene Wenger over the Villa move or lack thereof, and Barcelona use him as their go-to guy to spread information. Don't forget his part in getting Fabregas to move to Barca. As for Sky Sports-what would Arsenal tell them? "Yeah, we're in for David, top top player, we've offered Barca about fifteen mill for 'im, should be done tomorrow". That's Harry Redknapp behaviour. Arsenal may well n ...

Arsene Wenger keen on signing duo Arsene Wenger has admitted that Napoli striker Edinson Cavani and Wilfred Zaha of Crystal Palace are high on his list of transfer priorities this season at Arsenal, according to Sky Sports. Wenger has concentrated on signing Theo Walcott to a new long-term deal and now feels that as the player moves closer to resigning, he can begin to focus his attention on strengthening elsewhere. “Cavani is a player that I like. Will he cost a lot of money? That’s for sure. Nobody would deny that. Our banker lives just next to me at the moment and he is ready if we find the right player,” quipped Wenger.

ARSENAL BOSS HURT BUT HOW DO U THINK WE FEEL SIR Arsene Wenger has come out today and revealed just how much it will hurt him to see one of his rivals lift another trophy this season and his team fail for the eighth year to pick anything up. As we have been reminded on a regular basis over the years, we have not won a trophy since our win against Manchester United in 2005 in the FA Cup and since then we have barely even got close to winning anything. And because we are so far behind in the Premier League, Wenger knows the FA Cup represents his best chance to put an end to years of frustration. Speaking to Sky Sports he said: “Of course, it bothers me because I am not here to watch other people win trophies. “It is important and I will give my best to win on Sunday. I will just remind you that I have won the FA Cup four times. “Of course that (reminders of the drought) is not pleasant, but the only way to do it is to win.” He is right; the only way to do anything about it is win. But the fact is we ...

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says their latest win at Wigan is a welcome boost after a testing finale to 2012. A second half Mikel Arteta spot-kick guided the Gunners to a third consecutive league win and lifted them up to third in the Premier League, while the hosts were left stuck in the drop zone. It has been an impressive turnaround after being dumped out of the League Cup by League Two Bradford two ago with many fans calling for a new manager at the Emirates. "It was a difficult game but that will give us belief and confidence," Wenger told Sky Sports. "They went for us and it's a good result." Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was a bright spark throughout as Santi Cazorla - the hat-trick hero in Monday's 5-2 demolition at Reading - was efficiently marshalled by man-marker James McArthur. "They stopped us from playing," Wenger added. "We weren't as fluent and sharp as Monday. They had great desire. "They are in the wrong position in the table. They have a very good midfield and their full-backs did very well." ...
Neville says Arsenal's front three showed pace and inventiveness during 5-2 win at ReadingNevile told Sky Sports that Arsenal may have found the perfect front three - and also gave his backing to Arsene Wenger. Theo Walcott - who has yet to commit his long-term future to the Gunners - started as the central striker against Reading on Monday night and was flanked by fellow Englishman Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the right and German star Lukas Podolski on the left. Arsene Wenger's selection paid off as his side dispatched the Royals 5-2 at the Madejski Stadium to move up to fifth in the Premier League table and just two points off a Champions League berth. And, speaking on Monday Night Football, Neville said he was impressed by how swift and inventive Arsenal's attacking forays were as a Santi Cazorla hat-trick and a strike apiece from Podolski and Walcott saw the Londoners record a second straight top-flight victory. "There was always someone filling the space, like the Arsenal teams of old, and although Re ...

stewart robson:“It was a poor performance, but one I'm not surprised about. Time and time again Arsenal don't earn the right to play, and tactically (Bradford boss) Phil Parkinson showed he's a better coach than Arsene Wenger,” he said on Sky Sports. "I'm more embarrassed with the way Arsene Wenger conducts himself these days. He doesn't do any tactical stuff on the side of the field, they tell me he doesn't do too much work on the defensive side in training, yet he'll have a rant at everybody else. "There's backroom staff that will challenge his decisions - Steve Bould, Neil Banfield, Terry Burton - but they can't challenge him because he's a dictator in many ways. "Why isn't Steve Bould doing more coaching? Because - time and time again - I don't think Arsene Wenger sees the danger. “When the team are making mistakes he doesn't rectify them, and the reason he doesn't rectify them is he doesn't know what the mistakes are.” Robson’s attack did not stop there, he even went so far as to say Arsena ...
Former Arsenal hero Paul Merson believes that the Gunners could benefit from failing to qualify for the Champions League this season, but has warned against hounding Arsene Wenger out of the club. “Without being horrible I think it’s a little bit of a mess,” he told Sky Sports, adding: “It needs to be sorted and the best thing that could happen to Arsenal is that they don’t finish in the top four this year and they fall back.” “They’ve been struggling and people have been calling for Arsene Wenger’s head. Be careful with that,” he said. He’s a top drawer manager, he’s been around so don’t wish for something [like that] because it isn’t always the same". “I hope they don’t panic with Arsene Wenger. At the same time they need to bring in a better quality of player.” -Alex
Roberto Mancini is confident Manchester City's Champions League failure will not dent his players' morale ahead of Sunday's derby against Manchester United. (Sky Sports) City rounded off a disappointing group campaign by losing 1-0 away to Borussia Dortmund, which left Mancini's side without a win from their six games.

DEFENDER AGREES ARSENAL DEAL Last Updated: Tuesday 13 November 15:24:00 Sky Sports understands Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson has agreed a new long-term deal at the Emirates. Jenkinson, who joined the club in June 2011 after making just nine appearances for Charlton, has been rewarded for his fine form this term with a new improved contract. The 20-year-old made 14 appearances in all competitions last season, but he has impressed this campaign after filling in for the injured Bacary Sagna in the opening weeks of the season. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has seen enough to reward the full-back with a contract extension as he looks to secure his best young players on long-term deals. Jenkinson's performances have earned a call-up to the England squad and he could make his debut in Wednesday's friendly with Sweden. Arsenal are expected to confirm the news of Jenkinson's new deal later this week and the news will be a boost ahead of this weekend's North London derby with Tottenham.
Arsenal frontman Lukas Podolski has said he wants to be playing in a more central role for the North London club after having mainly operated as a wide-man this season. The German striker, who has been mostly employed by Arsene Wenger wide on the left in a 3 man strike force in the early goings of this season, believes he is more suited to a role in the centre of the attacking three, rather than providing support for his team mates in the middle. The Polish born forward has demanded more from himself since his summer move from Cologne, and has only scored 2 goals in 10 appearances for the Gunners this season. But Podolski could argue he is playing out of position, adapting his game to play more as a winger rather than an out and out striker. Centre forward The German international has scored 44 goals in 105 games for his country, but believes he can’t find his usual scoring proficiency at Arsenal due to his position up front. “I’d rather play centrally up front”. Podolski told Sky Sports. “On th ...

Arsenal boss Wenger ponders double Newcastle raid for Tiote, Cabaye Mon, 08/27/2012 - 03:55 Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is eyeing Newcastle United pair Yohan Cabaye and Cheick Tiote. Both players have long been admired by Wenger, who is set to bid for the duo this week. "I'm pleased with what we've done but I anticipate we will do something and we are still on the market," Wenger told Sky Sports after the 0-0 draw at Stoke City. "It depends on the quality of players who are available. If we can find somebody who can strengthen our squad with the quality we want we will do it in any position." Arsenal boss Wenger: No way we were going to pay Van Persie £300k-a-week!
Arsenal goals will come — Wenger Arsene Wenger is confident Arsenal will soon discover a cutting edge after drawing a blank for the second successive week following a 0-0 stalemate at Stoke City. Following a frustrating 0-0 draw at home to Sunderland on the opening day of the season, the Gunners were again blunted at the Britannia Stadium. The departure of Robin Van Persie to Manchester United has deprived Arsenal of last season’s leading scorer, while new signings Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud are still adjusting to the demands of the Premier League. Wenger took the positives from a solid defensive display against Stoke and feels it is only a matter of time before Arsenal start scoring. “Overall, I feel we had a solid performance,” Wenger told Sky Sports. “We were not in trouble defensively and we created some chances that we couldn’t take. “We don’t take our chances, but it was a solid game with a dominant spirit and overall I believe there’s a lot of positives in there. Still stru ...
