Danny Welbeck could be odd man out for Arsenal this season

Manager Arsene Wenger defends his transfer policy as Arsenal get ready to kick off new season against Chelsea in the Community Shield.

When Danny Welbeck moved from Manchester United to Arsenal, his aim was simple: to establish himself as a top class centre-forward. After a bright start, including a memorable hat trick against Galatasaray, inconsistency and injury saw his fortunes fade. Now, with talk of a new striker arriving in north London, Welbeck could find himself squeezed out of the club where he hoped to make his home.

Welbeck's troubling situation is compounded by the fact that he will miss the start of the season, as bone...

How does Arsenal's spending compare to the top six? Get your calculators out

ESPN FC's Ross Dyer analyses how both Arsenal and Chelsea conduct their transfer business after Jose Mourinho commented on the Gunners squad and spending.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his Premier League rivals are now the ones attempting to buy their way to glory, a charge that used to levelled at the Blues.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is already ramping up the mind games and we're still a little under two weeks from the start of the Premier League season.

Indeed, with Chelsea set to take on Arsenal at Wembley on Sunday in the Community Shield, rival manager Arsene Wenger has already become the focus of his attention.

"If you add up the amounts clubs have spent in the last three or four years I think maybe you will find a surprise," Mourinho said, in an obvious attempt to add pressure on the Gunners...

Arsenal need a better striker than Olivier Giroud to win the league

Olivier Giroud is set to pen a new deal that would keep him with the Gunners through 2018.

Being a football fan is a constant battle between logic and hope. Most of us are perfectly balanced, can recognise a good player -- and even more readily, a bad player -- when we see one. We can criticise our team just as clearly as any other, and leave blind loyalty at the door when it comes to objectively assessing the players in front of us.

But sometimes logic is swept aside, especially during preseason. We all know these games mean nothing, really. They're extended practice sessions that people...

Jeff Reine-Adelaide an exciting talent but Arsenal must show patience

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says it is pointless to read too much into preseason.

If there's one thing Arsenal fans know a thing or two about, it's a promising youngster.

From the ones who have made it big, like Cesc Fabregas and Jack Wilshere; to the ones who shone brightly for a short time then faded away, like Fran Merida and Quincy Owusu-Abeyie; to everything else in-between, they've seen the lot at the Emirates.

So, when a young player catches the eye it's usually for good reason. It's not to say they're set to be the next Fabregas but it's because they've shown the crowd...

Jack Wilshere must grasp attacking role for Arsenal after Emirates Cup

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Dan Thomas react to Arsene Wenger's latest comments and talk about how frustrating Arsenal's transfer policy has been for fans.

With all the noise created by Lord Harris of Peckham's unguarded comments about Arsenal's £200 million cash reserves and the pursuit of a new striker on Thursday, news of significance regarding a player who has cost nothing in transfer fees went rather unheard. But for Jack Wilshere, it was a very significant comment.

When Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger discussed his planned use of the midfielder in the coming campaign in his pre-Emirates Cup news conference, he was unequivocal: "It is a big...

Arsenal may depend on Mertesacker and Koscielny-style partnerships

The ESPN FC crew debate Olivier Giroud's future in light of transfer links to Karim Benzema.

At the back end of last season, Per Mertesacker spoke about the importance of "automatisms" in the Arsenal team.

The vice-captain was referring to the developing understanding between the first XI. With the passing of time, players are learning more about their teammates and each co-dependent action becomes increasingly instinctive.

As he explained it: "Automatisms -- when you know players better, especially your partner -- are a big part of a footballer's life."

In the absence of major refurbishments...
