Chamakh Staying | Joel Campbell Scores Against Spain | Transfer & Player News

Thanks to the International games, there’s little to report bar the Arsenal players that are on duty for their respective clubs. Robin Van Persie was rested as requested by Arsene Wenger while Theo Walcott saw 57 minutes of action at Wembley against Sweden as the three lions won 1-0. Mertesacker came on for Germany in their 3-0 win over a Dutch side shorn of Van Persie and Van Der Vaart. For a full report on the players on duty, check the official website.


The best forward at Arsenal Maroune ‘better than everybody’ Chamakh has reportedly been ignoring all the overtures of his former club Bordeaux as they try to bring him back to the club, but his love for Arsenal and the manager and his place in the hearts of the Arsenal faithful wont let him leave us. Great, now all he needs is to make Robin Van Persie act the same way and sign a new contract. Bordeaux president said he’s left over 4 messages for both the player and AW but it seems their BIS(Blackberry Internet Service) is out so they did not get any message. Liar Liar Jean Louis Triaud


The young English-Finnish defender says he cant wrap his head around his meteoric rise, from playing Blue Square football to getting sent off against Man United and making his champions league bow infront of the team he has supported all his life. What a lad. i personally like him and he’s gone from strength to strength since his arrival, and if he keeps crossing the ball the way he does, he might have a Fabregas season from the back.

Joel Campbell

The young Costa-Rican forward netted what many are calling a henry-esque goal against the world champions Spain yesterday. he was also reported to have been a thorn in Puyol’s side the entire night. He’s going to be an amazing player for us once he’s legible. You can watch the goal here 

Transfer Rumors

Just a quick one, word coming out of France is AW is ready to take a gamble on Yoan Gourcuff who could be available for about 8M to beef up the midfield. Other sources mostly by Martin Lipton of Daily Mirror says despite the rumors of Marco Reus, Goetze is still AW’s number one transfer target and doesn’t mind the hefty fee on him. remember he almost joined in the summer so i won’t completely rule it out.

Looks like we wont be getting a defender as we have more than enough bodies there, a midfielder looks a certainty then two attackers to help cover for the loss of Gervinho and Chamakh who leave in January for the ACN. Goetze and Podolski? or who would you rather have? Let us know in the comments. Do have a lovely day.

    i think podoski will be fantastic for gunners

  2. hahahahaha, SarcEscobar!! It is very good news to hear Campbell scored such a goal against none other than Spain. Glad RvP was rested, le Professeur did well there. Rosicky’ll play at the Euros among others….generally great news for we Gooners. Now, can we pick up where we left off against Norwich. I’ve missed the EPL!!!

    Great post!

  3. I wud lyk to see podolski and gotze… Gotze, wilshere and ramsey… We will have the best midfield in d world in 3 years… And podolski is a type of player we need… He can replace rvp in cup competitions and can also come in as a 60th min substitute to play 4-4-2 wen we r laggin…

  4. I will go for both, both slots are wanting. that little lad, Campbell is bound for greatness.

  5. joel campbell es la gran promesa juvenil del futbol tico…. campbell es un jugador de excelentes habilidades ademas joel esta nominado para el golden boys en los que participa los mejores jugadores del mundo menos de 21 años
