Arsenal and their transfers need a kick into overdrive

Arsenal are dragging their feet in the transfer window. This has been a problem for the team for a long time: needing fresh faces in the squad, or a high-quality player to help push into a top four spot or higher up, and struggling to deliver. Yet, when a swift deal needs to be made, […] Arsenal and their transfers need a kick into overdrive - Pain in the Arsenal - Pain in the Arsenal - Arsenal News, Transfer Rumours, and Fan Community

WATCH: Vivianne Miedema, Beth Mead lead Arsenal Women to comeback victory

Photo by Ryan Pierse/ Arsenal Women secured their first win of 2022 with second half goals from Vivianne Miedema and Beth Mead. Arsenal Women secured their first victory in 2022, ending a winless run of four games. Things, though, did not start well for Arsenal, who went behind after 15 mintues to Emma Koivisto’s header. Arsenal struggled to create after going behind, with a mishit Beth Mead volley and a Jordan Nobbs freekick the closest Arsenal came to equalizing before half time. Staring down the barrel of a second WSL defeat, Arsenal were a completely different...

Arsenal Transfer Rumor: Eddie Nketiah to Newcastle?

Photo by MB Media/ Filed under: moves out of nowhere Newcastle United are working on a transfer move to bring Eddie Nketiah to St. James’ Park. Apparently the theme of this Arsenal transfer window is “moves out of nowhere” — the news comes on the heels of the Gunners’ surprising sale of Calum Chambers to Aston Villa. According to some reports, the negotiations are relatively far along and have been going on for a while under the radar. Nketiah is in the final 6 months of his Arsenal contract and has rejected extension offers from the club, so a January sale...

Arsenal offered Chelsea flop on emergency striker loan

Arsenal are letting players leave the club left, right and centre, all the while struggling to bring in anyone themselves. Barring goalkeeper Matt Turner, who won’t be joining in January and will arrive as the Gunners’ number two stopper from New England Revolution in the summer, it’s all quiet on the north London front.

What on earth are Arsenal doing this January transfer window?

On Thursday night at around the time everyone was finishing up their dinners, Arsenal dropped the news that Calum Chambers had joined Aston Villa on a permanent deal. In this modern era seeing deals like this happen is no longer commonplace. We will never witness scenes of Arsene Wenger nonchalantly meandering into a press conference with […] What on earth are Arsenal doing this January transfer window? - Pain in the Arsenal - Pain in the Arsenal - Arsenal News, Transfer Rumours, and Fan Community

Friday Cannon Fodder: confused

Photo by Universal History Archive/ I went to sleep last night thinking that today would be January 31st and that the transfer window would be closing. I was thinking about which last minute moves might pop up, thinking about Arsenal’s needs, and what I was going to write to summarize the window. But today isn’t January 31st. It’s January 28th. The transfer window doesn’t close for three more days. I have no idea why my mind did this. None whatsoever. Fortunately, this particular brain fart didn’t cost me anything. I didn’t miss a meeting or an appointment....

Arsenal to sanction shock Eddie Nketiah transfer to Newcastle

Arsenal set to complete another loan move in January

It’s been a busy month for Arsenal Football Club. A very busy month. The buzz of new signings has permeated the air, but it’s been departures that have been most prevalent. Well, not most prevalent, as so far it’s been nothing but moves elsewhere.

Ousmane Dembele key to Arsenal’s Aubameyang transfer plans

One of the finest examples of a transfer merry-go-round was when Arsenal sold Olivier Giroud to Chelsea. That allowed Michy Batshuayi to join Borussia Dortmund from the Blues, a necessary acquisition in order for Arsenal to sign Aubameyang. On that occasion everyone won. Rarely do we ever see deals like that in which all the parties […] Ousmane Dembele key to Arsenal’s Aubameyang transfer plans - Pain in the Arsenal - Pain in the Arsenal - Arsenal News, Transfer Rumours, and Fan Community

Arsenal sell Calum Chambers to Aston Villa

Photo by Neville Williams/Aston Villa FC via Good luck, Cal! Arsenal have sold Calum Chambers to Aston Villa for an undisclosed fee. Per reports, that undisclosed fee is a whopping zero pounds, although the Gunners will save about £2M in salary. Chambers contract was expiring at the end of the season, although it was my understanding that the Gunners held a one-year option to extend. Chambers joined the club in 2014 for £16M after spending his youth career with and making his senior debut at Southampton. It’s pretty impressive that this move came off without any...

Arsenal are in a tough spot. That much is clear to see. The year started off with a deflating loss to Manchester City. The performance was eye-catching and brilliant but the result much less so.
