Gunners in Arms evening news

Welcome to a new feature that we are introducing, it will be a simple summary of the Arsenal news stories that break throughout the day. There have been a lot of news floating around in the last 24 hours but I thought I’d bring you the main stories.

Bracewell-Smith regrets Kroenke sale


Arsenal’s honoury vice-president Nina Bracewell-Smith has spoken out on her regret at selling her shares to Stan Kroenke and took to Twitter on Sunday night to sympathise with frustrated fans. She tweeted the following

‘What a shame the board recommended a Kroenke takeover and paid Rothchilds 3m fee’

‘And how deeply I regret selling to Kroenke. Bring David Dein and give Usmanov representation on the board if we are to have success going forward.’

She later deleted the tweets but they indicate that she shares the opinions of the fans that are annoyed by the fact the club haven’t spent any money this summer, she also feels that Usmanov could take Arsenal forward should he be allowed.

Arsenal bid for Yohan Cabaye


The Gunners have made an official £10m bid for Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye after the pressure was piled on Wenger following their defeat to Aston Villa. 27 year old Cabaye is described as attacking midfielder but his best qualities are the ability to score goals and his creative play in and outside the box. He is a great quality player but once again Wenger has gone in far too low and the bid was rejected by the Magpies this afternoon according to Sky Sports who also claim PSG and Spurs are also interested.

Wilshere believes the team deserved to be booed on Saturday


Super Gooner Jack Wilshere believes that fans were fully entitled to have a bad reaction to the game on Saturday but hopes that they can put the game behind them and carry on the support. When interviewed after the game Wilshere told the Metro

‘We are not happy and we have to take a good look in the mirror and pick ourselves up.

‘The reaction of the crowd was understandable.

‘They pay their money to watch us and we need to put in better performances than that — and to win games.

‘My message to the supporters is to stick with us. It is a long season.’

Arsenal groups contact the club after the loss to Villa

Two of the biggest Arsenal fan groups have contacted the club with a response to the result of Saturday’s game. The Black Scarf Movement sent a letter to Ivan Gazidis expressing their ‘deep concern’ about the current situation at Arsenal in terms of having huge finances and assurances that money was available in Q and A sessions with the board in recent months. They have also pointed out that loyal fans are starting to walk away from the club as a result of the poor way things have been handled.

The AST have sent a letter to Arsenal expressing the opinion that they do not want Arsene Wenger to be offered a further contract after his current one expires.

That’s all for today and thank you for reading.
