Arsenal: Calum Chambers needs opportunity

Calum Chambers was named Fulham’s Player of the Season this weekend. When he returns to Arsenal next season, he needs opportunities if he is to thrive. When it came to the development and use of young, burgeoning players, the remit for Unai Emery was always clear: to master the process. Ivan Gazidis did not shy […] Arsenal: Calum Chambers needs opportunity - Pain in the Arsenal - Pain in the Arsenal - An Arsenal Fan Site - FanSided

Arsenal: Laurent Koscielny exit requires BIG transfer response

Arsenal are apparently flirting with the idea of letting Laurent Koscielny go a year before his contract expires. They better be ready to answer in a big way. I don’t use all caps lightly.

Arsenal: Petr Cech vs Bernd Leno a question of image

Arsenal need to make a decision regarding who will start in goal against Chelsea, and it’s not an easy one to make. What this all comes down to is image.

Arsenal: Selling Laurent Koscielny can be done right

Laurent Koscielny is reportedly tempted to leave Arsenal this summer with a new contract not especially forthcoming. While selling would not be ideal, there can be a way in which it is beneficial to the club. A part of building the post-Arsene Wenger era at Arsenal is the selling of the Arsene Wenger players.

Arsenal: Difficult balance of needing quality and being financially smart

Arsenal are a self-sustainable club, and so, while new signings are needed, there is an obligation to be financially sensible. Striking a balance is very difficult.

This week, Alex Iwobi spoke about the ‘weird’ adaptation period from Arsene Wenger to Unai Emery. His comments prove why the Arsenal head coach needs patience.

Arsenal: Expect Ryan Frasers, not Wilfried Zahas

Arsenal are seemingly set to pursue Ryan Fraser, not Wilfried Zaha. Sadly, signings like Fraser, and not Zaha, should be expected this summer. I think most Arsenal fans were quite on board with Wilfried Zaha the player. There were qualms about the price tag and his character, but purely as a footballer and whether he […] Arsenal: Expect Ryan Frasers, not Wilfried Zahas - Pain in the Arsenal - Pain in the Arsenal - An Arsenal Fan Site - FanSided

Arsenal: Hakim Ziyech makes much more sense than Wilfried Zaha

Arsenal are interested in bringing in a winger. Reported interest in Hakim Ziyech and Wilfried Zaha proves this. Ziyech would make much more sense. The ever-apparent need for a winger is the topic of discussion once again. Though defensive additions are a must, as is an attacking addition in the wide area.

Arsenal have one good thing going for them, and that’s their striker pair. So don’t even start talking about selling either one of them.
