Arsenal will welcome their North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur to the Emirates this Saturday for the FA Cup 3rd round tie that has caused the financial uproar of the season. There has been a lot of complaints and reports in the social media over the match day tickets, which are ranging up to a supposed £125 according to today’s Daily Mail. The Category A game, which should be classed as a category B game at the very most, has left fans hoping that, for the sake of what we are being forced to pay, that Arsenal turn out with quality and class to overturn Spurs with all guns blazing.
After a good weekend of Premier League results following on from the dreaded international break, Arsenal now return to Champions League action. Arsenal will welcome French side Marseille to the Emirates for the 5th group stage game of the campaign in this years Champions League competition.
In the return fixture in France, Arsenal won the opening game with confidence, winning the game reasonably comfortably 2-1. So the hopes will be high that The Gunners can better the scoreline this time around on home turf, or at the very least, pick up the same result.
Ahead of the 4th Champions’ League group stage game of this year’s campaign, Arsenal are faced with the difficult task of winning in Germany against Borussia Dortmund. Dortmund of course beat Arsenal in London a little over two weeks ago, however with the Gunners now in Germany for today’s game, Arsenal must go all out to make sure we still stand a chance of topping the group.
The defeat to Borussia Dortmund was particularly disappointing because the counter attacking goal was not only a sloppy goal to concede but also because it came at a time where we were in control and looked like the more likely to score. A draw probably would have been the fairest result however that’s football and now Arsenal must hit back.
Vermaelen confident ahead of the Liverpool game!
Arsenal will this week face a visit from Liverpool in a Premier League match which sees two of the top three teams currently in England come head to head at the Emirates Stadium. With two defeats coming in similar fashion to both Chelsea and Dortmund in the past week and a half, Arsenal only have a 2-0 victory against Crystal Palace to settle their worries, however going into this game it seems as if confidence is still high in the Arsenal dressing room, even if it isn’t with the fans.
Arsenal and Arsene Wenger have always been quick to deny that there is a long standing problem that is preventing the club from achieving success and for many years people have been quick to blame Wenger himself. Then it quickly became apparent that it might have something to do with majority shareholder Stan Kroenke, or even now ex chairman Peter Hill-Wood, but in fact I don’t think it’s anything to do with this.
Serge Gnabry looks to be the next young talent to really make it at Arsenal, having played in the last few games for the Gunners. Ever since he joined the club he has always been highly rated and valued amongst the Arsenal set up and Arsene Wenger himself, whilst it hasn’t been until this season that Arsenal fans have managed to take a real look at this German talent.
Arsenal recently released an article on their club website Arsenal.com, which stated the club’s financial situation for the previous season, ending in May 2013. And although the figures may not have been as impressive as previous years, the club still made a profit in excess of £6 million, and ultimately there’s more good news for the Gunners, with the announcement that Arsenal plan to continue spending the money!
Its transfer deadline day!
Transfer deadline day has finally arrived and for Arsenal, it didn’t look too promising however a change of events overnights has brought excitement to our ears, with one player in particularly in advanced negotiations with Arsenal.
All summer, Arsene Wenger has sat back and tried, but clearly not hard enough to sign players and just when it looked like all hope was lost, a North London derby win has boosted the team up and it also seems Wenger has been up with the coffee all night long! Hopefully it’s going to be a fantastic day with several big names surrounding the club!
Yesterday, it was reported that Bendtner’s pure stubbornness had meant that he had rejected another chance to leave Arsenal, despite his desperation to never play for the Gunners again. Then there was a statement that suggested Crystal Palace may be interested in signing him, but now there’s even a chance that he could play for Arsenal again this season!
