Arsenal lose to Bournemouth for the first time ever

With Bournemouth at the time sitting 16th in the Premier League table and not picking up a win in 3 games, you’d think Arsenal would be able to take advantage on Bournemouth’s lack of confidence, right?

Well, that was not the case! Arsenal were beaten on the road for the 5th time in the Premier League already!

Arsenal actually took the lead in the 52nd minute when Iwobi played a superb ball through to Hector Bellerin, the Spaniard was very fortunate to score as the ball slowly rolled into the net after Bournemouth keeper Asmir Begovic got a big touch.

Twenty minutes later Bournemouth’s top scorer this season Callum Wilson equalised when a cross from winger Ryan Fraser was whipped in, Arsenal keeper Petr Cech rushed off of his line but wasn’t able to get there in time and Wilson tapped it in.

Bournemouth’s intensity became a lot higher, four minutes later, they took the lead! Poor defending from Arsenal, AGAIN! Callum Wilson broke through 3 blue shirts and laid off the ball to Jordan Ibe who struck the ball beautifully on the ground, the ball practically went through Petr Cech!

And so ended another miserable game for the Gunners. The roar of boos after the game towards Wenger and the players was immense.

Wenger following the defeat at The Vitality Stadium:

“We were not good enough defensively and the errors will be worked on and improved in training. It was good to see Aaron Ramsey come on as we have not seen a lot of it recently. We will learn from our mistakes.”

Who is Malcolm?

According to a variety of different reports, Arsenal are closing in on a deal for the Brazilian and Boudreaux winger Malcolm for a record fee of £45million, but who actually is this wonderkid?

Malcolm (Malcolm Filipe Silva de Oliviera), hence why we all call him ‘Malcolm’, joined one of the biggest leagues in the world back in 2016. He signed for Ligue 1 club Bordeaux from Brazilian League side Corinthians.

Malcolm instantly began to impress, the skills, pace, and absolute beauty of a left foot caught the eyes of many top clubs.

One of those clubs are indeed, Arsenal.

With Alexis Sanchez on his way to Manchester, Malcolm is definitely one of the hottest young prospects AND a perfect replacement for the Chilean.

Malcolm’s agent, Leonardo Cornacini has recently posted a picture of him and his representatives in London and the picture was liked by Malcolm himself!

Malcolm’s mum also posted on Facebook, (in Portuguese of course), “Love from Brazil to London”.

Is all of this just overexcitement and a bit of a coincidence? Let us know what you think by tweeting us @ArsenalInsider!

Let’s talk about Arsene Wenger…

This year marks twenty-one years Arsene Wenger has been an Arsenal manager.

He has seen many ups and downs, and downs, and downs as an Arsenal manager. Wenger lifted his first trophy as an Arsenal manager in 1997 when Arsenal won their first ever Premier League title.

The 2003-2004 season was definitely the one to remember for fans as Arsenal broke a Premier League and club record as they managed to go 49 games undefeated.

I’m not going to sit here and tell you EVERYTHING Wenger has won because this article will be well over 1000 words!

I am going to talk about if Wenger is truly finished as an Arsenal coach. With continuous defeats week in week out not just this season but the last 12 years really, is it time Arsenal’s greatest ever manager has to step down and call it a day?

It is sad to see Wenger like this, it is similar to when Mohammed Ali was in his prime and thought he would never give up boxing. When Wenger was in his prime, Arsenal fans literally never wanted the 68-year old to leave.

It is so hard because people like me have only seen 1 manager at Arsenal and that is Wenger himself. Lots of people say they want him dead which is just sick in my opinion.

In my personal opinion, I do think it is time to move on from Wenger and begin a new era. What do you think? Tweet @ArsenalInsider your opinion as we would love to hear what you have to say.
