Players and fans to unite
Manager Arsene Wenger has called on the players to unite the fans with a big performance against Middlesbrough. Arsenal have now dropped down to seventh position after results over the weekend. The club needs to get back to winning ways and the match against Middlesbrough seems a perfect opportunity to do so.
Sanchez PSG talks
According to reports, Alexis Sanchez has turned down Arsenal’s most recent contract offer and has held talks with French side Paris Saint-Germain.
Sanchez it seems is unhappy at the financial package that Arsenal have offered him, as he seeks a new club.
Has he signed, has he not, that’s the question. After reports saying the Bosnian had signed for the club, his father has come out and claimed that Kolasinac is choosing between Arsenal and AC Milan. The left back is available for free in the summer.
Wenger defends Bellerin
Arsene Wenger has jumped to the defence of full back Hector Bellerin after the Spaniard was jeered after the defeat against Crystal Palace. Wenger felt the jeers were unfair on a player who has battled back from an ankle injury. Wenger did admit that Bellerin has bad habits and forgot how to defend this season.
Arsenal need to learn
Mesut Ozil has said the club needs to learn from their Champions League exit against Bayern Munich. Ozil claimed that Wenger’s tactics were spot on but the players let themselves down on the night and no one played well.
Benzema in again?
It’s that time of year again when the same old players get linked to the club, only for them never to appear. According to the Sun, Karim Benzema is being mentioned again, this time as an Alexis Sanchez replacement. The 29-year-oldold is reportedly unhappy at Madrid and Arsenal seem to be a good fit. This looks like another Benzema nonstarter to me.
First off we had the suit, then we had training ground magic, which I can only describe as some old school dance routine, which even the Granada players looked just as confused at. This did not bode well for Tony Adams’ first game in charge, and so it was, as they went down 3-0 at home to Celta Vigo. Strangely, Adams made history before the game as he named 11 different players with 11 different nationalities and did not include one Spanish player. Looking forward to Adams’ next press conference. Adams in I say!
