You have to hand it to the English tabloids, they literally have no shame and will put out stories that either contradicts themselves or are simply outright lies.

Each morning I go through Arsenal related headlines, it is my job after all and sometimes I come across the most outrageous headlines or articles that simply have to be called out.

This headline from the Daily Express and the accompanying article fit the bill of utter ridiculousness.

Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang holding secret talks about Real Madrid transfer

WOW, where to start?

First, how the hell is it secret if it is being splashed across their website?

Second, these so-called secret talks are not actually with Real Madrid, they are supposedly with his teammates Dani Ceballos and Mesut Ozil, yup, Mesut Ozil.

It seems that by asking Ceballos and Ozil what it is like at Real Madrid is enough for the Daily Express to proclaim that Aubameyang is holding secret talks.

They cite some obscure Spanish publication for these revelations, I mean, this is as clickbait as you can get.

How any of them know what or who he is talking to is beyond me but even if Ceballos or Ozil are running off to the media and saying Aubameyang asked me what life is like at Real Madrid how the hell does that justify such a headline or article, there is literally nothing of any substance to back up either.

The headline is misleading in the extreme, the article is woeful and the really sad thing about this is that some Arsenal fans will fall for this rubbish.

Do not fall for this made-up rubbish and remember the name Jack Otway, he is the so-called journalist that wrote this garbage because by remembering his name you will know anything he writes in future is almost certainly fake and can be disregarded.

Arsenal will be back in Premier League action on Sunday when they host Aston Villa at the Emirates and as usual, the pundits have been making their predictions.

It is an Arsenal win across the board for the pundits, though there is some significant differences in the predicted scoreline.

Sky Sports and former Gunner Charlie Nicholas is going with an entertaining game and reckons that Villa will find the back of the net twice, however, the Scot has Arsenal scoring a huge four times and goes with an Arsenal 4-2 win.

BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson not only thinks that Unai Emery’s men will win but has them keeping a clean sheet as well and predicts Arsenal to emerge the winners 2-0.

Former Liverpool ace Michael Owen does not do scorelines and just predicts outcomes and he is on the Arsenal bandwagon going for a home win tomorrow.

This is the first time that we have included Arsenal legend Ian Wright and unlike the other pundits, he does his predictions via video and has his former club winning 2-1.

OK, the much-derided BT Sports Supercomputer also goes with an Arsenal win but as usual opens itself up to ridicule with a 6-1 win for Arsenal, though it should be said, as I do every week, these predictions were made pre-season.

So, there you have, unanimous across the board for an Arsenal win which makes a change in attitude from the pundits who have hardly been backing the Gunners this season.

To be truthful it would have been a surprise if any of the pundits had gone with a Villa win, Arsenal are very strong at home and on the back of an impressive win over Eintracht Frankfurt midweek, they will enter this game fully confident of registering a comfortable home win.

Unai Emery slammed in damning verdict before Arsenal hero then takes swipe at Nicolas Pepe

Published

Unai Emery has not solved any of the grave problems which existed at Arsenal under Arsene Wenger, according to Paul Merson.

Arsenal made a bright start to the campaign but have not won their last three league games, losing to Liverpool and drawing with Tottenham and Watford.

Last weekend’s capitulation at Vicarage Road particularly brought Emery under fire as Arsenal’s passing out from the back tactics were punished by the Hornets.

And Merson, who played for the club for 12 years, has taken aim at Emery in a column for the Daily Star.

“It’s Unai Wenger at Arsenal at the moment because it’s the same old story,” he said.

“They go 2-0 down against Tottenham and suddenly the shackles come off and they look like the Harlem Globetrotters.

“But then against Watford they go 2-0 up and by the end of the game they’re hanging on for dear life. That can’t happen.

“It’s like the Arsene Wenger days all over again. It’s no different.

“Why is it that just because there’s a new rule where you don’t have to go out of your box at a goal kick, that Arsenal think they have to pass it four yards across their own goal?

“It’s Playstation football. It’s something you’d see on FIFA. Not in the Premier League. Emery will have to change his ways or he’ll soon be out of a job.

“If they don’t beat Aston Villa at the Emirates today the fans might start to turn.”

New signing Nicolas Pepe also felt the wrath of Merson.

The £72million man from Lille has not scored but supplied two assists in six Gunners appearances so far.

“And Nicolas Pepe needs to pull his finger out too,” Merson added.

“He hasn’t looked anything like a £72m footballer so far.”

Crystal Palace hero Wilfried Zaha opens up on failed Arsenal and Everton summer transfers

Published

Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha has said that he will always love the club despite wanting to leave in the summer.

Arsenal wanted to sign Zaha but Palace wanted in excess of £70million for him, something which the Gunners could not afford in full.

Once that move fell through, Everton then came in for the Ivorian’s signature.

But Palace wouldn’t listen to their offers either – one of which was said to be £50m plus Cenk Tosun and James McCarthy.

Zaha’s brother Judicael spoke publicly about his sibling’s desire to leave Palace for Arsenal – who he supported as a child.

The former Manchester United winger ended up staying with Palace – the club he professes to love regardless of his summer wishes.

“To be honest what happened in the summer happened,” he told Palace fan site HLTCO.

“Obviously there were things that I was told that did not happen and I was not happy about it.

“I’m still a Palace player and I’m still at Palace and want to do well for the club.

“It’s an honour to play for Palace in the Premier League

“I love Crystal Palace. I feel like the fans and everything in the stadium is different to every club, it is a proper family club. Crystal Palace fans care about your well being.

“I will always love Crystal Palace – whatever happens.

“Even years back when I went to Manchester United I followed everything that happened at Palace. It will not end tomorrow if I ever move.

“I’ve been at Palace since I was eight. Palace is a special place.”
