  • Tue, 15 Nov 2022 14:49:12 +0000: Premier League clubs face mixed risks of sending players to the World Cup - Arsenal | The Guardian

    Manchester City have 16 players in Qatar but for teams with fewer representatives, this winter offers vital rebuilding time

    Pep Guardiola was notably accepting of Manchester City’s defeat by Brentford in their last match before the World Cup. “My staff and I will have time to reflect on what we did well and what to do better,” he shrugged. Guardiola and his staff may also have to watch events in Qatar through their hands, clenching as heavy tackles fly in and muscle injuries stack up given City – with 16 players – are the Premier League club sending the most players to the finals.

    Even if Erling Haaland will be spending much of the next six weeks on the Etihad Campus, key players such as Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden and Rodri will return bearing the physical and mental scars of the tournament. And individual success in Qatar may not necessarily be good news for a player’s club. To take the example of England’s Euro 2020 finalists, a number of Gareth Southgate’s players made indifferent starts to their 2021-22 club campaigns.

  • Mon, 14 Nov 2022 08:00:33 +0000: Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action - Arsenal | The Guardian

    Harvey Barnes and Joe Willock show they have England futures and Darwin Núñez is finding his feet at Liverpool

    For Pep Guardiola the World Cup may have arrived at an apposite moment. Manchester City could have beaten Brentford at the weekend but they lost, something they narrowly avoided when finding a way to beat Brighton, Leicester and Fulham in their previous Premier League outings. A six-week break for Qatar allows the manager to examine the team forensically and understand what is required to refresh a mode of play that is lacking the usual relentless pass-and-move sequences. “People go to their national team, they will be focused, it is a dream for them, it’s a World Cup. [The staff] have time to reflect: what we are doing well, what we could do better. After the first [league] game back – we will see,” said Guardiola. “The Premier League is difficult but we are going to try to come back good and fight for that.” Jamie Jackson

  • Sat, 12 Nov 2022 21:53:08 +0000: Arsenal go five points clear at top after Martin Ødegaard double sinks Wolves - Arsenal | The Guardian

    In Germany they christen the team top of the Bundesliga at Christmas der Herbstmeister, the autumn champions. While Arsenal mirroring what, in effect, is tantamount to a claim to fame in the Premier League is practically meaningless to Mikel Arteta, it is a milestone that Arsenal have not managed since 2007 and, even if they have played only 14 games, it is increasingly difficult to quell the excitement around his vibrant team.

    Martin Ødegaard scored twice in victory at Wolves as Arsenal offered a reminder heading into the World Cup break that they are in undeniably rude health. Wolves, meanwhile, are bottom and badly need Julen Lopetegui to revive their miserable season.

  • Fri, 11 Nov 2022 22:30:23 +0000: Mikel Arteta calls on referees to better protect Arsenal forward Bukayo Saka - Arsenal | The Guardian
    • Arsenal manager says in-form players get heavy treatment
    • ‘The better players become, the bigger target they become’

    Mikel Arteta has warned that the target on Bukayo Saka’s back is growing after some heavy treatment from opponents in recent weeks and urged referees to protect the in-form forward.

    Saka hobbled off before the half-hour in last month’s win over Nottingham Forest and appeared to be accused of diving by Graham Potter when Arsenal defeated Chelsea last Sunday. He was booked for simulation at Southampton when replays suggested he had been fouled and Arteta said officials need to be aware that players receive closer attention as their reputations grow.

Historic News Stories have been added below:

The summer transfer action is beginning to come hard and fast for Arsenal as they now have begun to receive many offers for the want away Dutch striker Robin Van Persie who is out of contract with the gunner at the end of next season. The clubs star player has made it clear he will not be signing a new contract with the gunners and this has prompted all of Europe’s top clubs to begin a bidding war for the phenomenal striker.

Another player who could be set to leave the Emirates stadium is Carlos Vela who is now in the middle of discussions for a transfer to the Spanish side Real Sociedad who are thought to be lining up a £5.000.000 deal for the Mexican international. Vela has been on the sidelines for some time now and it is clear that his future lies elsewhere and away from London.

The capture of Lucas Podolski from Cologne a few weeks back was meant to signal the start of a new era at Arsenal as the club have been trophy less for the past five years. The German international was seen as the perfect partner for Robin Van Persie but with the Dutch striker certainly on his way out of the Emirates it is now more than likely that Podolski will be leading the line along with another new signing up from in the form of up and coming superstar Olivier Giroud.

Another player who could be leaving the London club this summer is Marouane Chamakh who has found himself out of the picture at Arsenal for the past twelve month and has only started a handful of games during this time. The Morroccan international is wanted by Fiorentina and Dutch champions Ajax and the striker is keen on a move to either of these sides in search of first team football.

Arsenal are also said to be in for the highly thought of Egyptian defender Islam Ramadan who plays for his homeland club Haras El Hodood with the twenty one year old thought to be an integral part of Wengers new defensive plans. Ramadan has also attracted a huge amount of interest from some of Europe’s leading clubs including Lyon, Benfica and Sporting Lisbon.

Arsenal FC

Arsenal Football Club was Established  in 1886 and the Football Club Nickname is The Gunners.

The Football Club Manager is: Mikel Arteta

A Brief History of Arsenal Football Club

Arsenal FC is one of the most successful and popular football clubs in the history of English football. The club has millions of fans around the world. Arsenal is without a doubt one of the top four football clubs in the Premier League. The club has won 47 major football titles including 13 Premier League titles, 14 FA Cups, 16 FA Community Shields, 2 EFL Cup titles, one Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, and one UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup title. Arsenal FC holds the record for the longest run in the Premier League and also owns the record for the longest unbeaten streak in the Premier League.

In 1886, a Scottish footballer David Danskin and his fellow workers formed a new football club named Dial Square FC. The club was named after their workshop in the Royal Arsenal complex. Danskin was a mechanical engineer, and his other workers were blacksmith, and they used to build cannons for the Royal military, which is why the club is also known as the Gunners. Just a month later, the club changed its name to Royal Arsenal FC.

Initially, Royal Arsenal’s home ground was the Manor Ground. The club’s first significant victory came in 1889–90, when they won the Kent Senior Cup and the London Charity Cup in the same season. Royal Arsenal won the London Senior Cup the next year, defeating St Bartholomew’s Hospital 6:0. In 1891, Royal Arsenal was the only professional football club based in London.

Rebranding and Joining the Football League

In 1893, Royal Arsenal became a limited liability company and also changed their name to Woolwich Arsenal. The club also joined the Football League Second Division in the same year. Woolwich Arsenal became the first club from the south to join the Football League. For ten years, the club played in the Second Division before being promoted to the First Division in 1904.

While participating in the First Division of the Football League, Arsenal was unable to attract the requisite crowds to their matches. In 1913, the club was relegated to the Second Division after experiencing major financial difficulties. After spending six years in the Second Division, Arsenal was again promoted to the First Division in 1919 as a result of a controversial voting.

The Chapman era and First League Title

The club dropped the “Woolwich” from its name in 1919 and registered as Arsenal FC, as it is known today. In 1925, former English footballer Herbert Chapman was hired as team manager. Chapman rebuilt the team and made significant changes in the squad. Cliff Bastin, David Jack, Alex James, and Eddie Hapgood were among the young players he brought into the team. Tom Whittaker, a highly competent trainer, was also employed by Chapman.

Arsenal was rapidly dubbed the Bank of England team due to their lavish expenditures and high-profile additions. Arsenal finished second in the league for the first season under Chapman’s leadership. The improvements made by Chapman had a substantial impact on the team’s performance.The club won their first FA Cup in 1930, it was the first national trophy of the club in 46 years. Arsenal also won their first league title under the management of Chapman in 1930-31 and another title in 1932-33.

Chapman was instrumental in helping Arsenal grow in popularity and become one of the top clubs in English football. He used his well-known WM formation to strengthen Arsenal’s counter-attacking strategy. In 1934, Chapman died of pneumonia. . Joe Shaw was hired as interim-manager for the rest of the season, who helped Arsenal to win the league title in the same season. On May 24, 1934, George Allison was appointed as Arsenal’s manager, and he helped the club win the 1934-35 league title, completing a hat-trick of league titles.

Eighteen years without a Trophy

Arsenal’s next manager Tom Whittaker could only add one FA Cup (1949–50), two Community Shields (1948, 1953), and two league titles in 1947–48 and 1952–53. Although the club was competitive during the mid-1950s, the squad was old and Arsenal couldn’t manage to sign young players, resulting in the club’s inability to win a major trophy for the next 18 years.

The club appointed few highly skilled managers, like George Swindin and Billy Wright, but they were unable to turn around the team’s fortunes, and Arsenal spent the majority of the 1950s and 1960s league seasons in mid-table. After the failure of former England captain Billy Wright as a manager, Arsenal appointed Bertie Mee as caretaker manager in 1966.

Mee added young players in the squad including Bob McNab and George Graham. After a few seasons saw a breakthrough when Mee led Arsenal to win their first European trophy “the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup 1969-70”. In the following season, Arsenal won their first League title and FA Cup double.

Arsenal’s First UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup Title

Arsenal’s popularity skyrocketed after winning their first double in 1971, and they became London’s most popular football team. Arsenal couldn’t win a major trophy for the next 15 years except the 1979 FA Cup victory. The club appointed George Graham, a former Scottish footballer, as manager in 1986. Graham’s defense-oriented approach worked well for Arsenal, and the club had a little more success under his leadership.

During Graham’s nine years as manager, Arsenal won two league titles (1988–89, 1990–91), two League Cup titles (1986–87, 1992–93), one FA Cup (1992–93), and one FA Community Shield (1991). In 1994, Arsenal won their first and only UEFA Cup winner’s Cup, defeating Parma 1-0 in the final. Graham was one of the most successful managers of Arsenal, who led Arsenal to win six trophies in nine years.

The Arsene Wenger Era

In 1996, Arsenal brought an unknown French manager Arsène Wenger who previously served in French league clubs and didn’t have Premier League experience. Many critics questioned the appointment of Arsène Wenger as manager and called it the worst decision of the Arsenal board, but the Frenchman proved them wrong. He immediately modified the gameplay of the team, he replaced the defensive approach of the team by an aggressive attacking gameplay.

After the end of Wenger’s first season as manager, Arsenal finished at 3rd in the league and also qualified for the UEFA Cup. Under Wenger’s management, Arsenal became far more watchable. He signed highly talented French players including Patrick Vieira, Robert Pirés and Thierry Henry who were incredibly effective for the deadly attack of the team. During Wenger’s management, Arsenal became known for not signing the big names, but instead promoting academy talent. Arsenal introduced some big names in the history of English football such as Ashley Cole, Tony Adams, Joe Willock, Theo Walcott, and Samir Nasri.

Under Arsène Wenger’s management, Arsenal won three Premier League titles (1997–98, 2001–02, 2003–04), seven FA Cup titles (1997–98, 2001–02, 2002–03, 2004–05, 2013–14, 2014–15, 2016–17), and seven FA Community Shields (1998, 1999, 2002, 2004, 2014, 2015, 2017). In the 2003-04 season, the club didn’t lose a single game in the league. The Arsenal team was dubbed “The Invincibles”. Thierry Henry was the most dominant player in the Premier League, he scored 30 goals in 37 matches. Arsène Wenger retired in 2018. Follow the Arsenal Football Club news on our dedicated news page.

Arsenal Rivalry

The North London derby is one of the fiercest and oldest derbies in the history of English football. Tottenham and Arsenal have been fighting for dominance in North London for a long time. The rivalry started in 1913 when Arsenal moved to Highbury in North London which was just a few miles away from Tottenham. Spurs opposed the move.

The rivalry between the both clubs became even more intense in 1919 when the league was to be expanded by two clubs via a vote. Tottenham and Chelsea Football Club were the frontrunners for promotion, but Arsenal won the vote and were promoted to the Premier League. Both clubs have met 204 times, with Arsenal winning 84 times, Tottenham 66 times, and 54 draws.

Emirates Stadium

Arsenal played at Highbury Football Stadium in London from 1913 to 2016. The stadium could hold 38,419 people. Arsenal intended to extend the stadium in 1997, but Islington refused to grant permission to do so. Arsenal’s board of directors agreed in 2002 to build a new stadium in Holloway, London. The stadium, which cost approximately £390 million to build, was finished in 2006. The stadium’s principal sponsor was Emirates. As a result, the stadium was given the name Emirate Stadium.

Emirates Stadium is widely regarded as one of the world’s best football stadiums. The stadium seats 60,260 people and has held numerous international matches and concerts. The team gave the famous airline corporation Emirates the name rights to their new stadium. They signed the largest sponsorship contract in English football history, at almost £100 million.

Arsenal FC net worth

According to the Forbes latest statistics, Arsenal has a net worth of $2.8 billion which makes it the eighth-most valuable football club in the world. The club generated $430 million in the last season. Arsenal is the fourth richest football club in England. American businessman Stan Kroenke currently has the majority shares in the club, and he is not willing to sell the club in the near future.

Arsenal FC is the world’s seventh richest football club, with yearly revenues exceeding $430 million. It is also the fourth wealthiest club in the United Kingdom.
