Delegation in Germany to sign Aubameyang + Sanchez departure about much more than money

Welcome to what should be a busy week, with lots to complete on the transfer front and, of course, a Carabao Cup semi-final against Chelsea to come on Wednesday evening. Arsenal reportedly sent a delegation to Dortmund yesterday, with Ivan Gazidis, Sven Mislintat and new contract bloke Huss Fahmy all there to try and sort out a deal for Pierre-Emerick...

Arsenal 4-1 Crystal Palace: Monreal and Ozil help Gunners find their rhythm

Match report - Live blog - Player ratings - By the numbers - Video It's amazing to think that the last time we won a game was on December 28th 2017, and coincidentally it was against the same opposition. We beat Crystal Palace 3-2 at Selhurst Park that night, but yesterday at the Emirates there was no comparison in terms...

Ozil and Ramsey should boost attack v Palace + latest on Alexis/Mkhitaryan/Aubameyang

In disappointing news, the transfer speculation frenzy has been interrupted by a so-called game of football today. Arsenal will have to put all the fun stuff aside to kick a ball around the pitch against some other lads, but hopefully we can get back to the really important stuff straight after. It's Crystal Palace today, a game that comes just...

Aubameyang, Alexis, Mkhitaryan latest + the elephant in the transfer room

Morning all, welcome to Friday, and the transfer mayhem continues. Yesterday Arsene Wenger more or less confirmed the departure of Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United, saying a deal involving a swap for Henrikh Mkhitaryan was likely to happen. He threw in the usual caveats about how things can change with transfers at any moment, and we all know that's the...

Episode 457 – Crazy Transfer Mayhem Madness!

Welcome to another episode of the Arsecast - the Arsenal podcast. It's been a week of transfer mayhem, with Theo Walcott sold to Everton, the potential Alexis Sanchez - Henrikh Mkhitaryan swap, Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang linked, and loads more. With me to discuss that is Lewis Ambrose, who delves deep into the kind of player Aubameyang is and what he might...

Laca Imagination, Laca Running

It may not have escaped your notice that Alexandre Lacazette has not scored for Arsenal for some time now. 9 appearances ago to be precise, when he slammed the ball past David de Gea against Manchester United in November. There is so much focus on individuals in modern football consumption and the arrivals of Alvaro Morata, Romelu Lukaku and Alexandre...

Theo Walcott joins Everton + the latest on Aubameyang

Arsenal brought their transfer income this window to the £30m mark, and shaved another £100,000 a week off the wage bill, with the sale of Theo Walcott to Everton. He joined Arsenal as a 16 year old in January 2006 – the same month we brought in Emmanuel Adebayor and Abou Diaby – and was, until yesterday, our longest serving...

Walcott on his way, Mkhitaryan reservations, Wilshere’s contract offer, and more

Morning all, it's still about transfers, and the Alexis Sanchez situation remains the most complicated and irritating, so let's start somewhere else. Theo Walcott went to Merseyside yesterday to have a medical with Everton. Here he is in the car with some Everton people on his way to have the medical or after the medical. Either way, medicine was done...

Why do Arsenal want Aubameyang, what can he offer and how risky is it?

Seemingly out of nowhere, Arsenal now look likely to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Yes, really. Since moving to Germany in 2013, he’s scored 141 times in 212 appearances for Dortmund. Even more amazingly, he’s netted 116 in 139 since the club started to use him as a striker. Gerd Müller is the only player in the history of...

Transfer stories a distraction, but a welcome one – full round up

It's all about transfers today which ordinarily would be a welcome topic, but is even more so because it's at least some distraction to everything else. You get the sense that this probably suits the club too. Rather than introspection about another dismal performance and defeat, the focus is elsewhere. Not without good reason either, but the fact we're slap...

Arsecast Extra Episode 209 – 15.01.2017

Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog. On this week's show I'm joined by guest host JB (@gunnerpunner) to pore over another poor day away from home after Arsenal went down 2-1 to Bournemouth on Sunday. Lack of firepower and defensive frailties were exposed, but how much of what's wrong stems from our...
