Piers Morgan has the solution to all of Arsenal’s woes: Bring in Donald J. Trump as new manager. The talking head, an unabashed Arsenal fan, recently interviewed the U.S. Commander in Chief and, according to a tweet on Friday, offered Trump the job of replacing Arsene Wenger as manager to Make Arsenal Great Again.
All-Star gaaaames. There’s nothing more exciting than watching the NBA’s West beat the East 192 to 182 while the 6-10 Anthony Davis scores 52 points off 39 shots, and there’s nothing more sporting than watching Canadian journeyman Will Johnson crunch Bastian Schweinsteiger on the ankle after the German graciously appears following a grueling summer spent winning the World Cup.
Arsene Wenger, the Professor with an economics degree, is dipping Arsenal’s pocket book into the crypto-currency markets. The club reached an agreement Wednesday with California-based CashBet, which will thus be allowed to advertise at Emirates Stadium. Now Gunners fans can watch ads for fake money while cheering for fake trophies. The Arsenal crypto-currency deal might just be the most Arsenal thing ever.
Arsenal advanced to the Carabao Cup final after defeating Chelsea 2-1 Wednesday at the Emirates Stadium. An opening 12 minutes of comedic defending from both sides led to goals from Eden Hazard and Antonio Rudiger — the defender scoring an unfortunate own goal to bring Arsenal level — but Granit Xhaka popped up to score the winner on the hour mark.
What an incredibly strange career trajectory Lassana Diarra has had.
It feels like Arsenal and Alexis Sanchez and Manchester United and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have been dancing around each other for ages. Really, it has only been a week or two. Still. What a drain.
Well, today the dance came to an end and Arsenal and Manchester United ended up with different partners than they had when they started.
Manchester United ended up with Sanchez, a dynamic 29-year-old Chilean who has been Arsenal's best player for quite some time.
The post-Alexis Sanchez era at Arsenal is off to a tremendous start. The Gunners rained down 14 minutes of hellfire on Crystal Palace on Saturday with Nacho Monreal, Alex Iwobi, Laurent Koscielny and Alexandre Lacazette all scoring between the sixth and 22nd minutes.
Lacazette’s strike was his first in nine Premier League matches, but it was a superbly worked goal with Mesut Ozil providing his sixth assist of the campaign. The German maestro worked a series of one-twos outside the box before cleverly laying off for Lacazette to score.
Real Madrid and Arsenal are both having terrible (for them) seasons. Real Madrid are in fourth place in La Liga, which is unacceptable for a club that big. Arsenal are in sixth in the Premier League, and in danger of falling out of the Champions League race altogether. Fortunately, there is a solution that fits both clubs, that would benefit each right now and in the long-term: Arsena Wenger and Zinedine Zidane should switch clubs.
You think this is a joke but it's not.
Arsene Wenger and Zinedine Zidane should switch clubs.

Callum Wilson (Bournemouth):
There’s a lot of Arsenal transfer window chatter going around this month — a little more than usual. The Gunners are struggling in league play, were knocked out of the FA Cup and their two best players have contracts ending in a few months.
But when it comes to all the rumors and speculation, five words are all you need to know about Arsenal in the transfer window: Arsene Wenger is still manager.
