  • Wed, 10 Aug 2022 08:38:43 +0000: Football transfer rumours: Milan’s Sandro Tonali to Arsenal for £50m? - Arsenal | The Guardian

    Today’s goss is counting down the days

    Arsenal are warming up the Emirates fax machine after making inquiries to Milan about Sandro Tonali, the 22-year-old holding midfielder who helped the Rossoneri win a Scudetto last season. The Milan manager, Stefano Pioli, wants to keep the former Brescia player, sometimes dubbed the “new Pirlo”, but a bid from the Gunners in the region of £50m may make things happen.

    Staying with Italian midfielders, Chelsea’s proposed move for Cesare Casadei of Internazionale looks to be in danger of being hijacked by Ligue 1’s Nice. Todd Boehly and co are said to have already had more than one offer rebuffed by Inter – the Nerazzurri reportedly want £20m as well as a buy-back clause – and it now seems the French club are willing to outbid the Blues in yet another transfer setback for Tommy Tuchel.

  • Tue, 09 Aug 2022 17:00:28 +0000: Granit Xhaka: ‘People say you don’t give everything for the club, but that’s bull’ | Nick Ames - Arsenal | The Guardian

    The Swiss midfielder on his surprising longevity at Arsenal, his admiration for Mikel Arteta and why fans should be allowed to come and watch training

    The behind-the-scenes documentaries so beloved of modern times are not known for their rough edges but, for Granit Xhaka, that was part of the point. He allowed the cameras into his home for the Amazon series that followed Arsenal last season and if it humanised him beyond the spiky, sometimes rash, often divisive but frequently highly effective character seen on the pitch then the film had done its work.

    “For me it is fine because I have nothing to hide,” he says. “I am Granit here and the same at home. Only on the football pitch do I have a different mask: people have to accept that.”

  • Mon, 08 Aug 2022 07:00:07 +0000: Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action - Arsenal | The Guardian

    Debutants made an impact on their first outings but some did far better than others on the opening weekend

    It is unfair to pick out one player from Manchester United’s dire opening display under Erik ten Hag but Lisandro Martínez seriously struggled against Brighton. These are, of course, the earliest of days for the new centre-back but he will have to learn fast. The diminutive Argentinian is a footballer the manager knows well but there are question marks over his stature. There will be serial aerial bombardment this season of the type he failed to deal with against Brighton, with Danny Welbeck rising highest above him when missing a close-range header in the second half. Martínez might also have conceded a penalty when bundling over the same player in a performance that did nothing to suggest the 24-year-old can help plug United’s leaky rearguard. Jamie Jackson

  • Sun, 07 Aug 2022 08:30:38 +0000: The week in TV: Irma Vep; The Sandman; All or Nothing: Arsenal; Paper Girls - Arsenal | The Guardian

    It’s meta madness as Olivier Assayas gets to remake his own film as a TV series; Old Testament meets Ouija board in Neil Gaiman’s dark fantasy; and the Gunners get a going over

  • Fri, 05 Aug 2022 23:01:40 +0000: Saliba and Zinchenko fire Arsenal’s early-season hopes in sultry opener | Barney Ronay - Arsenal | The Guardian

    Mikel Arteta’s new team were excellent in an encouraging opening-day victory at a scorched Selhurst Park

    Yes: the rumours are true. The Premier League, which never really went away, has returned. And it felt pretty good on a sultry Friday night, watching an Arsenal team of eager new moving parts do an excellent job of raising some tender early-season hopes at Selhurst Park.

    It was 24 degrees in South London as kick-off approached on the earliest date the English top tier has ever begun. This was a desiccated kind of heat, the grass scorched white, the sky a deathly blue. The English summer does at least have a sense of irony. To avoid the Gulf sun the Premier League will instead play through a heatwave in England.

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. The Gunners are the overwhelming favorites to qualify for the Champions League, and if they do, their value will skyrocket.
