Who to bet on to replace Arsene Wenger, when he finally does leave

Arsene Wenger has spent the last few years laughing in the face of the names that have been mentioned in connection with his long held job. There have been many thrown around that make most people laugh. Owen Coyle was one suggested as was Brendan Rodgers, Mark Hughes was supposedly a candidate, as even, was Pep Guardiola. Every time though, Wenger clinged onto power with impressive resilience and calmness. He has always been a graceful and dignified presence who has worked hard to end the season with something to show for it and a marker that he might still have ... Read more

Goalkeeper Mattia Perin should be on Arsenal’s summer radar

As Petr Cech is beginning to show is age, Arsenal are said to be in the market for a new goalkeeper this summer. The 35-year-old Cech has made numerous blunders during the current campaign, and is not the world-class keeper he once was. The Gunners brought in the former Czech Republic international from rivals Chelsea in the summer of 2015, and while he has performed fairly well up until this season, Arsenal should be looking to replace their number one shot-stopper with a younger keeper. Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak and Athletic Bilbao’s Kepa Arrizabalaga would be outstanding choices to replace ... Read more

The formation that could solve Arsenal’s defensive issues

It is safe to say that Arsenal are enduring a fairly tough season. The Gunners are currently sixth in the Premier League, they were knocked out of the FA Cup by a team in the bottom half of the Championship table, and most recently were thumped 3-0 by Manchester City in the League Cup final.

While there can be many reasons behind Arsenal’s poor season, the crux of the club’s current situation has to be the defense, or ... Read more

Hector Bellerin is right to criticize ArsenalFanTV for feeding off club’s failures

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin was recently invited to speak at the Oxford Union. A prestigious debating society, the Oxford Union has previously welcomed high-profile people such as Michael Jackson, Bill Clinton, and Diego Maradona. In the interview, Bellerin discussed a plethora of topics ranging from his personal life as a footballer to the Catalan independence. While the 47-minute long discussion covers a variety of topics (see video in its entirety below), the main topic of conversation seems to be what the defender had to say about the YouTube channel ArsenalFanTV.

Identifying Arsenal’s problems in defense and who they need to replace

With Arsenal currently sitting sixth in the Premier League table, seven points behind rivals Tottenham, there is surely plenty of blame being passed around the Emirates as to why the club has struggled in the league. Some have turned to condemn Granit Xhaka, the player with the third-most completed passes in the British top tier (64% of these passes being forward). While others have put the brunt of the blame on striker Alexandre Lacazette, the club’s high scorer on the season. Nevertheless, when taking a deeper look into the statistics, Arsenal’s defense has, without a doubt, been the weak link ... Read more
