Andrey Arshavin's return to Zenit will not be heroic.

I had to reblog this, if only for ‘Crisp eating bench polisher’!

Sanogo a go go

4 06 2013

Despite not being officially announced as of yet it is looking more or less in the bag that promising French striker Yaya Sanogo will be joining Arsenal during the Summer transfer window.

It has been widely reported that the Auxerre and French U21 player would be joining the Gunners on a free transfer in an attempt to take his career to the next level after a groin injury saw him sit out most of the 2012 season on the sidelines.

8 goals in 7 games for the Ligue 2 outift has seen comparisons drawn with a certain Thierry Henry…

According to comments made by Sanogo he had contract offers from a number of teams include Lille however a personal visit from Arsene Wenger convinced him that a move to the Emirates would be the right one to make.





Arsenal sign 30M a year kit deal with Puma

8 05 2013

After months of speculation it has finally come to light that Arsenal will be severing their 20 year connection with Nike when the current kit deal expires in 2014.

It has long been suspected that the Gunners would make the switch to Adidas if a new deal couldn’t be agreed with Nike however it would seem they have been pipped to the post by rivals Puma with a staggering 30 million plus a year deal potentially worth 170M over the 5 year course of the contract.

This deal will dwarfs Liverpool’s 25mill a year arrangement with Warrior and see the Gunners sitting top of the tree for kit deals in English sport.

The news of this massive new kit deal follows hot on the heels of Emirates renewing their sponsorship of Arsenal with a bumper new deal.

 

Happy times fellow gooners, happy times 🙂

Cazorla is official

In this case I think a picture paints a thousand words…

The capture of Santi Cazorla is one of the most impressive pieces of business which Arsenal have pulled off in a long, long, while.

Add this to the earlier acquisition of Podolski and Giroud and this summer it seems that everything is coming up roses.





CAZORLA!!!!!!!!

3 08 2012

The title pretty much says it all!

After all the news in the past couple of weeks that a deal has been struck to bring Spanish international Santi Cazorla to the Emirates it seems that the day has finally arrived.

The tricky winger was absent from training with Malaga this week week amidst rumours that he had jetted into London for his medical with Arsenal.

Well it seems there was more meat to those rumours than is usually the case as it looks like the deal is done and that he is due to be unveiled later on today.

For those of you who think that Arsenal lack ambition I say take the blinkers off.

So far we have sold Vela and released Almunia…. in their place we have bought in Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla.

Title here we come!
