I am very pleased to introduce NikkoGunners, who has done a lot of research for this excellent post
about how Wenger could change things so that the thousands of chances created could be turned into
GOALS! Over to you Nikko................. Why don't Arsenal score more goals? How come Arsenal keep
struggling yet we have the greatest rate [.
Arsene Wenger made eight changes from the Arsenal team that beat Chelsea on Monday, and they failed
to beat Wigan again. But Le Prof doesn't think that that was the cause for the loss of points, it
was simply that Wigan made it hard for them, and nobody took charge of the defence at the [...]
Arsene Wenger's penchant for buying youngsters cheaply (or even better for free!) has led him to
take an interest in the Barcelona youngster Thiago Alcantara and possibly his younger brother
Rafael. Thiago is the son of an ex-Brazilian international Mazinho, who now acts as their agent and
TalkSport are reporting that both Arsenal and Man Utd [.
A few readers were asking where Adam Kemp was after the fantastic win against Chelsea, well here he
is......... Are we there yet, are we hardly! After an emphatic performance against Chelsea, several
of you readers have asked the question where is Adam Kemp now? There was a guest post praising
Arsenal's performance with protestations of anything [.
So the heroics of Monday night have all gone a bit flat tonight as Arsenal yet again blow a chance
to join Man Utd and Man City at the top of the Premier League. Arsene Wenger made wholesale changes
to the team (for what? To prove that he can?) and only Laurent Koscielny, Lukasz Fabianski and
There is still no let-up in the flood of Arsenal treansfer rumours, even though Arsene Wenger has
made it clear that he is unlikely to bring anyone else to the Emirates in January. The most
interesting one today comes from CaughtOffside, who reckons that Juventus are extremely keen on
taking the ever-injured Robin Van Persie [.
Theo Walcott was understandably elated after the Gunners beat Chelsea, but more importantly,
controlled the game from beginning to end. He believes Arsenal are now in with a real chance of the
title, and he says the team didn't even think about the awful run of results against Chelsea up to
The Gunners finally broke their five-year hoodoo against Chelsea with an emphatic 3-1 win at the
Emirates, and today's Guest Post is from Ahmed who last week questioned whether Arsenal were too
small to beat the big teams. But today he asks....... Are we there yet? Firstly a great performance
from the Gunners!
Arsene Wenger was very happy that his team have finally shaken off their "youngsters" tag with a
great win over Chelsea, and he just think the team now needs to be consistent as the final piece of
the jigsaw that could see Arsenal lift the Premiership trophy at the end of the season. He was
I know it's Christmas so I thought this was a bit of festive cheer, because he really can't be
serious! Freddie Ljungberg has joined Celtic today and the South Korean defender Cha Du-Ri admitted
he was really looking forward to comparing underpants with Freddie! Cha said: "Freddie Ljungberg is
a very famous player and I like [.
The Chelsea (and ex-Arsenal) defender Ashley Cole has given his old team a warning ahead of Monday
night's massive clash at the Emirates. Cole says that Chelsea's bad recent form has been simply
that they were missing Frank Lampard, john Terry and Michael Essien, but now all three are back to
full fitness they are ready [.
Arsene Wenger knows that his Arsenal team have lost the last five meetings against Chelsea, but
believes that if the Gunners can concentrate on their own game they can get the desired result at
the Emirates tomorrow. After the narrow defeat to Man Utd a few weeks ago, the Arsenal captain Cesc
Fabregas said that he [.
Arsene Wenger is preparing for today's visit by Chelsea, and he has declared that he feels certain
that the Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has fully recovered from his hamstring injury, but he is
also hoping that the Spaniard has also recovered from the "mental problem" that stopped him
performing when he came on the pitch.
Arsenal have been very strongly linked to the 17 year-old Southampton midfielder Alex
Oxlade-Chamberlain and Arsene Wenger was believed to be trying to persuade the Saints to allow the
talented England U18 player to move to the Emirates next summer. But it seems that they face
competition from both Chelsea and Fulham.
Arsene Wenger has made it perfectly clear that he will not be buying and more centre-backs as cover
for Thomas Vermaelen, but now the Arsenal manager has revealed that a very cautious estimate of the
Belgian's return is another four weeks. "He is short on fitness and we have to build it up," Wenger
Arsene Wenger has had enough now of people asking him whether he will be bringing in anyone else
during the transfer window, despite him making it clear that it would only happen if an Arsenal
player suffered a serious injury. Wenger told everyone that he was still hoping that Thomas
Vermaelen would be able to return [.
After the most annoying summer ever for Arsenal supporters regarding the 'Fabregas to Barcelona'
rumours, with every Barca player (and his dog) going on about the Arsenal captain's "Barcelona
DNA", I had a little nagging feeling when i read a recent quote from Samir Nasri. I have stewing on
it for a while, and now he [.
Arsene Wenger is well aware that his team's record against Chelsea and Man utd has not been very
good for the last five years, but after Arsenal's two narrow losses in the away games against the
Big Two he says that they now have to prove they can equal them by winning the return games [...]
I am pleased to introduce another Guest Post this morning from another Arsenal fan, and regular
reader, Henry Cullen. He thinks that we are all wasting our time keeping up with the transfer
gossip because we are invariably disappointed in the end! Over to you Henry.... Don't expect the
Arsenal transfer rumours to materialise As a club [.
There are some interesting Arsenal transfer rumours around this morning, and although they are all
unlikely, you just have to admire the imaginations of the journalists that created some of them!
The first is from the respected intellectual journal The Metro, who has taken a quote from
Christopher Samba saying that he abhored the way that [.
The Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is in the news everywhere lately either doing some annoying
pranks or winning awards, but when he gets on the pitch he is totally focused on just one thing;
winning! With Arsenal being the only team in England still in with a chance of winning four
trophies this season, Jack thinks [.
It couldn't have happened to a nicer lad! News has just come in that the ex-Liverpool boss Rafael
Benitez has been sacked by the Italian giants Inter Milan after just six months in charge. He
inherited a team that had just won the biggest Treble with Jose Mourinho in charge, and in previous
seasons only had [.
The Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby has spent a lot of time out injured this season, but is gradually
returning to full fitness. He had to sit out the 1-0 defeat by Man Utd at Old Trafford but he
believes that the team can still win the return game at the Emirates, and go on to [...]
Arsene Wenger has admitted that he MAY buy someone this January after all, which will only lead to
an increase of Arsenal transfer rumours but still makes it unlikely that he will be putting his
hand in his pocket! For the record Wenger said: "If needed I will sign new players in January. But
people want [.
The Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov currently owns around 27% of the shares in Arsenal Football
Club, and admitted today that he is so impressed with the way his "investment is rising" that he
will carry on increasing his stake in the club until it reaches the 29.9 needed to stay below the
I was very happy today to receive a second Guest Post from the very positive Luke Shephard, who
would like to put the case forward that Arsenal are much more likely than Chelsea or Man Utd to
last the season in all competitions. Luke thinks that even if we lost to United last week, we [...]
Cesc Fabregas may be the captain of Arsenal in name, but this season he has been a shadow of his
former self and has hardly inspired his team-mates either in his play or his leadership. But the
fall of Cesc has been matched by the meteoric rise of Samir Nasri, who has been playing out of
We obviously didn't have a winner of last weekends Predict The Score competition thanks to the
weather, so we will quickly move on to the next "Biggest Game of the Season". By the law of
averages Arsenal are due a win against their Blue neighbours, and if the Gunners are going to be
serious contenders [.
The Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has been speaking about his teams weak defeat to Man Utd last
week, and he believes that Arsenal have yet to get over the psychological disadvantage they have
when facing the big teams. The Gunners have lost 10 of their last 11 games against the Big Two, and
that has made [.
The Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas is quite pleased with only being two points behind Man Utd in the
title race at the half-way stage of the season, and believes will have the advantage over the other
contenders in the second half. The reason is simple. Arsenal have already played Chelsea, Man Utd
and Man City away [.
The Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was strongly linked with moves for both Cagliari's young keeper
Federico Marchetti and Hapoel Tel Aviv's Vincent Enyeama during the summer, but both deals were
reported to have fallen through because Wenger refused to match the selling club's valuations.
Wenger was also looking into buying Fulham's Mark Schwarzer and Liverpool's Pepe [.
The Lech Poznan striker Artjoms Rudnevs has been scoring for fun in the Europa League this season,
and is apparently on the radar of many top European clubs. The 22 year-old Latvian international
scored the goal that eliminated Italian giants Juventus from the competition amongst his four
strikes in the Europa Group Stage, and according to [.
The Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola reckons that his team will be facing a much stronger Arsenal team
than the one that his team met in last season's Champions League Quarter-Finals, and has pinpointed
the improvement of Sami Nasri and the addition of Marouane Chamakh to the side as the key changes,
and of course the [.
The Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas is not worried that his team will be facing the same Barcelona
team that knocked them out of the Champions League last season, and he firmly believes that the
Gunners have learnt their lesson and improved since the 4-0 battering in the Camp Nou. "I
definitely do believe we can come [.
Christmas is coming up, and more importantly the January transfer window approaches! After Arsene
Wenger's pronouncement that Arsenal will not be buying anyone in January most of the rumours appear
to be about players leaving the Emirates instead! Emmanuel Eboue seems to be linked with a move to
Italy every year, and the Daily Mail reports [.
Well we all knew that fate would throw Barcelona at us again once it was certain Arsenal would
finish second in the Group Stages, and other than the obvious difficulty of facing the most in-form
team in the world, the other big problem is that it will once again ignite the "Fabregas to
Barcelona" talk [.
Well at least we all now know why the young Norwegian centre-back Havard Nordtveit hasn't been
given his chance to play in the Arsenal first team, even though the Gunners have been having a
defensive crisis this season. He has refused to sign a new contract after returning from his loan
at Nurnberg this summer, and [.
Adam Kemp left a very interesting and extremely well researched post on Arsene Wenger's results
against the top teams earlier, and he has also provided the results where he got his figures from.
You are all welcome to check them and indicate if you find any errors. But here are the actual
results against the top [.
The young Belgian international Eden Hazard has been linked with a move to Arsenal ever since he
was a schoolboy prodigy, and Arsene Wenger said a couple of years ago that Hazard should continue
his development at Lille before moving to Arsenal in the future. Well it seems that that day is
Arsenal's abysmal record against the top teams have cost us trophies. Many of you know that we have
struggled recently to deliver the winning result when it really matters against the top teams.
Arsenal won their last major trophy in the season ending 2005 which is now five and half years ago.
We have been close [.
The game against Man Utd at Old Trafford on Monday told us a couple of things about Arsene Wenger's
future plans. His decision to totally exclude Manuel Almunia from the squad, despite the injury to
Lukasz Fabianski, would seem to indicate that the Spaniard has had his last chance at Arsenal, and
the Danish striker [.
There are numerous Arsenal rumours lately, but most of them seem to concern players leaving the
Emirates rather than arriving! The latest, which admittedly has been doing the rounds for some
time, says that Jose Mourinho wants the French defender to move to Real Madrid. This puzzles me....
No-one can say that Mourinho is not an expert [.
The young Pole Wociech Szczesny performed admirably on his Premiership debut against Man Utd, and
it looks like he is certain to keep his place for Stoke's visit to the Emirates on Saturday. Lukasz
Fabianski still has a problem with his hip, while Almunia has suddenly twisted his ankle amid
rumours that he is going to [.
Arsenal have lost to Man Utd and surrendered their place at the top of the League, and some people
think it is a disgrace to lose 1-0 at Old Trafford (I don't), but what Adam Kemp believes is
worrying is the constant run of defeats against both Man Utd and Chelsea, and the fact that [...]
Arsenal may have lost their place at the top of the Premiership table to Man Utd on Monday, but
both Andrei Arshavin and Wojciech Szczesny believe that it should have ended as a stalemate draw.
They both think that the winning goal by Ji-Sung Park was nothing but a lucky bounce off his head
that spun [.
Just Arsenal has yet another Guest Post this morning and this time it's from an Australian Gooner.
David believes that after sooooo many consistently inadequate losses in the big games, it is time
for Wenger and the Arsenal Board to face up to the deficiencies in the team.......... Lack of
Success a Cancer on the Club After [.
In this Yoyo season Arsenal can go back to the top of the Premiership if they beat the Potters on
Saturday, at least until Chelsea and Man United play on Sunday! But with Arsenal's home form and
Stoke's tenacity it is by far a foregone conclusion at the moment! Before we go on to the
We have another new writer on Just Arsenal to introduce today. Richard Hall is a dedicated Arsenal
fan and loves writing about them, so hopefully we will see a lot of posts from him in the future.
His first article is an analysis on the tactics used in Monday nights game. Over to you
Richard........ A [.
Arsene Wenger believed before the game that his team were now good enough and mature enough to go
to Old Trafford and secure a psychological advantage in the race for this years Premiership title,
but instead he found an organized United defence that left very little room for the Gunners to find
a way through.
Arsene Wenger has called on his team to prove that they are bona fide contenders for the
Premiership title at Old Trafford tonight, and to strike the first big psychological blow of the
season by inflicting the first defeat of the season on Man Utd. He said: "We have built a team and
slowly come up [.
Arsenal's terrible run at Old Trafford never really looked like being overturned last night as
Manchester United took the three points to go two points clear of Arsenal at the top of the Premier
League. Arsene Wenger complained about the quality of the pitch, but admitted it was the same for
both sides, while Samir Nasri [.
Another Arsenal defeat at Old Trafford, and another Guest Post from Adam Kemp, which most regular
Just Arsenal News readers would say was expected! Well, Adam also thinks that last night's defeat
was also..... Typical, Obvious and Expected. Many of you were hopeful Arsenal could at least get a
draw at Old Trafford, have been yet again [.
Could this be the start of a new era at Arsenal? There is a report in today's Sun that says that
Lukasz Fabianski has suffered a leg injury, and that the young Pole Wojciech Szczesny is to be
thrown in at the deep end by facing Man Utd at Old Trafford this evening. Szczesny has [...]
Chelsea's draw with Tottenham at White Hart Lane today was marked by an amazing inury time penalty
miss by Didier Drogba, which has left it tighter at the top of the Premiership than ever before.
There is just one point separating the top four, with Arsenal top on goal difference from Man City,
and Man [.
The Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri says that Arsenal have no reason to be worried about facing Man
United at Old Trafford tomorrow, as the Gunners away form has been exceptional this season. Nasri
said: "Liverpool are still a big team and we drew against them first match. "Manchester City are a
big team and we beat them [.
I have another Guest Post today from Ahmed, who is worried that today's Arsenal team are not big
enough or physical enough to take the points at Old Trafford. There was a report a couple of months
ago that pointed out that, on average, the Gunners were 3 inches and 2 stone smaller than Chelsea.
The Arsenal winger Theo Walcott believes that Arsenal's great run has given them the confidence to
win at Old Trafford tomorrow night, and says the Gunners just need to carry on the way they are
playing to take the points. "United have not lost in the league yet, so hopefully we can be the
first to [.
Its that time again and we have the biggest game of the season so far on Monday night at Old
Trafford. The winner gets the prize of being on the top of the league, and whoever correctly
predicts the Score wins a JustArsenal.com T-Shirt! This weeks competition is being sponsored by
IntenseGambling.com, so please say a [.
The ex Arsenal and England captain Tony Adams is currently managing a team called Gabala in
Azerbaijan, and despite a slow start to the season, they have now gone ten games without losing and
are in the quarter finals of the cup. Adams intends to stay there for a while, win the league, and
The Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has hardly played much for the Gunners this season, and he is
still not fully recovered from his hamstring injury, but he insists that he is not the only one to
have been out-of-sorts since returning from South Africa. He cites that Arsenal are benefiting from
the fact that his team-mates, [.
Here is a Guest Post from very thoughtful Arsenal fan called SVGunner, who gives a reasonable
assessment of our chances against Manchester Utd on Monday, and of the season as a whole. I enjoyed
reading it, and I hope you all do as well! Over to you SV...... Do Arsenal Have a Chance Against
The agent of Manuel Almunia has confirmed that the Spanish goalkeeper is now ready to move on and
amidst rumours that he is in negotiations with a team from Qatar Joseba Diaz reveals that Almunia's
personal preference is to finish his career back in Spain. Diaz said in todays Guardian: "We have
still not finished [.
The Arsenal winger Theo Walcott is becoming known as a full-time impact sub, and he did it again in
midweek when he was brought on against Partizan Belgrade and managed to regain the lead for the
Gunners. But with Mondays game against Man Utd coming up, Walcott is seriously hoping that Arsene
Wenger finally decides to [.
There has been much talk in all the Arsenal Blogs about the need for Arsene Wenger to splash out in
January for another centre-back to either provide cover for the longterm injury to Thomas
Vermaelen, or simply to improve the quality of the Arsenal back line. Wenger bought the young, but
inexperienced, Laurent Koscielny in the [.
Poor Kieran Gibbs must be feeling like he will never string a few performances together for Arsenal
after twisting his ankle after just 24 minutes of last nights game against Partizan Belgrade. Gibbs
actually lasted just 15 minutes before catching his studs in the turf, and limped around for the
next nine minutes while Emmanuel Eboue [.
Today I have another Guest Post from Adam Kemp, who I am sure you all know very well by now. This
is the second time he has written a post after Arsenal have won a game, but I'm not sure this one
is any more positive! Over to you Adam.... Second place and Second best [...]
Arsenal limped into the Champions League knockout stages last night with an uninspiring 3-1 win
over Partizan Belgrade at the Emirates, but had to make do with second place after Shakhtar beat
Braga 2-0 to top the group with 15 points. Wenger may now regret playing a weakened team against
Shakhtar in the Ukraine as this [.
Arsene Wenger admitted that he was a little worried when the score against Partizan was still level
peggings with just 20 minutes to go, but he knew from the previous Partizan games this season that
they would flag towards the end of the game. He said: "I was never really nervous. Worried yes,
because you cannot [.
Although the bare facts show that Arsenal are at the top of the Premiership table, but Arsene
Wenger accepts that they are only really there because Man Utd's game against Blackpool got called
off last weekend, which makes this Monday's match at Old Trafford even more important. Wenger says
that if his Gunners can beat Alex [.
Partizan Belgrade may not have won a point in the first five games of the Champions League Group
stages, but they are determined to put that right at the Emirates this evening as Arsenal are under
great pressure to get the win to make sure of qualification to the knockout stages. Partizan's star
winger Ivica Iliev [.
Arsene Wenger has had terrible trouble defensively this season after losing William Gallas and Sol
Campbell last summer, and with the long-term achilles problem suffered by Thomas Vermaelen since
September, but he is sure that there is no need for him to delve into the transfer market for added
Arsenal won their first three Champions League Group games this season, and looked like they were
going to comfortably top the group, but successive defeats to both Shakhtar Donetsk and Braga have
left the needing a win against Partizan Belgrade to ensure they qualify in second place. Arsene
Wenger has admitted that he decided to risk [.
A few weeks ago it was reported that the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger had approached Dinamo Zagreb in
a bid to bring the youngsters Mateo Kovacic and Sime Vrsaljko to the Emirates, but the Zagreb
president Zdravko Mamic told the Croatian press that he had turned down a Â£17m bid for the pair.
Now today it [.
There is lots of talk about the deficiencies in the Arsenal defence lately with the continuing
injury to Thomas Vermaelen. Yesterday Arsene Wenger said that TV wouldn't return until at least the
New Year, while Koscielny had been diagnosed with concussion and would be out for three weeks. But
today, Koscielny has suddenly been declared fit [.
With Man United coming up next weekend, it is guaranteed that Wenger will be making a lot of
changes for Tuesdays game against Partizan Belgrade. There is a lot of bull talked about the
possibility that Arsenal could get knocked out, but the fact is that the chances are so slim its
not even worth [..
The Fulham manager Mark Hughes saw his team lose narrowly to Arsenal on Saturday, and thinks he has
worked out the formula for how to play against the Gunners attacking style, and he believes that if
other teams study it then they can take advantage of the spaces left by the weakened Arsenal
Today's Guest Post comes from Adam Kemp, who I'm sure needs no introduction to our regular readers.
Everybody has been asking why he doesn't write when Arsenal are winning. Well we are top of the
League now, and here is Adam's point of view....... I hope Wenger proves me wrong. Arsene Wenger
seems determined to prove everyone [.
Arsene Wenger pinpointed the defence as Arsenal's biggest problem last season, and responded by
getting rid of Sol Campbell, William Gallas, Phillipe Senderos and Armand Traore, leaving just
Thomas Vermaelen as head centre-back. Thankfully the arrival of Laurent Koscielny and Sebastien
Squillaci gave the Arsenal fans hope that this season would see an improvement at the [.
After Adam Kemp's earlier Guest Post that was not too confident of the Gunners coming out of
December unscathed, we now have one from another regular, Graham from London. He thinks that things
are a lot more positive than they look.......... Wengers Tweaks Can Make Us Champions Ok, so the
ever long argument that we can't defend [.
Despite Arsene Wenger's proclamation that Arsenal will not be buying anyone this January (unless
there are injuries) there are still the usual amount of Arsenal rumours in the papers. One that
won't surprise anyone is the news from the Daily Mirror that Manuel Almunia will be allowed to
leave in January for a measly Â£1.
I was just browsing around the internet aimlessly (as I do!) and I found a website that is
advertising prices on who will take over as Arsenal manager if and when Arsene Wenger retires. So I
thought; That's an interesting question.... So, according to the two bookies offering prices, the
two favourites are Martin O'Neill and Jose [.
The young Arsenal winger Theo Walcott has only recently recovered from yet another injury incurred
after a flying start to the season, and he has struggled to live up the promise that saw him get
picked for England when he was just 17 years of age. But he now feels that at 21 he still [...]
There has been very little news about the Arsenal defender Thoms Vermaelen since Arsene Wenger
revealed that the Gunners medical team had very little idea of what actually was the solution to
the Belgian internationals achilles problem. Wenger said three weeks ago: "We have to be patient.
We know a lot medically nowadays but there are [.
Today I am introducing a new Guest Poster, a 15 year-old Just Arsenal reader called Luke Shephard,
who has something to ask Gooners in light of the failed England World Cup performance this summer.
I believe any Arsenal fan should be given a chance to air their views (as long as it has a point
Arsene Wenger was understandably pleased to see Arsenal go to the summit of the Premiership last
night, but agreed that it was far from being an easy win as Fulham made them fight all the way.
Thankfully Samir Nasri managed to pull two moments of brilliance out of the bag to give the Gunners
Arsene Wenger is always the eternal optimist, and he proved it again last night when he stated to
the press that he believed that his Dutch striker Robin Van Persie was not injury prone, and was
unlikely to be on the treatment table in the next couple of years. The facts say otherwise of
course as [.
Arsene Wenger has admitted that, after losing three home games already, Arsenal are fortunate to
still be in with a chance of winning the Premiership title, but he believes that the squad is now
well-equipped to take that chance with both hands. He describes the December fixture list as being
critical with Arsenal facing games against [.
Arsene Wenger quietly tried to sign Mark Schwarzer from Fulham all during the summer, but the cat
was originally let out of the bag by Arsenal vice-chairman Peter Hill-Wood when he revealed an
offer had been turned down by the Fulham bosses. After that there were millions of Arsenal fans at
online betting sites putting [.
Arsenal fans have been waiting with baited breath for the official arrival of the young Brazilian
Wellington Silva in January when he turns 18, but there have been serious doubts about the
youngsters discipline and commitment since the deal to take him to the Emirates was made early this
year. Arsenal have had Wellington over for [.
The massive African Football website MTNFootball has conducted a poll of over 12,000 Africans to
find out who they think is the best African player in the Premiership, and the Arsenal striker
Marouane Chamakh finished third overall with 18% of the votes cast in his favour. Surprisingly the
Chelsea pair of Michael Essien and Didier Drogba [.
The Fulham boss Mark Schwarzer is preparing his side to face Arsenal this weekend, and funnily
enough the club has decided at this moment to announce that they have persuaded their Aussie keeper
Mark Schwarzer to sign a new and improved contract. It was well-publicised during the whole of the
summer that Arsenal were trying to [.
The Arsenal and Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey may have spent nine months recovering from the broken
leg sustained by that famous challenge by Ryan Shawcross, but he now believes that his
rehabilitation is nearly complete. Arsene Wenger surprisingly allowed him to go out on loan to
Championship side Nottingham Forest after playing just 45 minutes for [.
It has been ten weeks since Manuel Almunia got a "knock" on his elbow during the 3-2 defeat by West
Brom back in September, and it seems that he is still no nearer recovery despite playing 45 minutes
in a reserve game two weeks ago. This is looking like an obvious bit of "economy with the [...]
Arsene Wenger has announced that he has no intention of buying any more players in January despite
the never-ending injuries in the Arsenal squad. He said: "We already have fantastic players,
international players, who are not getting enough games. Our squad is as good as Manchester United
and Chelseaâ€˜s â€“ that's what we want to show [.
The Ipswich manager Roy Keane saw his Tractor Boys beat West Brom last night, and then earned
themselves a plum semi-final against the hot favourites Arsenal. When asked what his thoughts were
he said that ALL the other semi-finalists would be delighted with the way the numbers were drawn.
"I think it is the toughest draw [.
There is a very interesting report this evening from the Mail. They say that Eden Hazard, who has
long been admired by Arsene Wenger, came to an agreement with Lille last summer that he would would
stay one more season if they agreed to let him move to the Premiership next season. This is
supposedly widely [.
First off all I would like to congratulate the six people who correctly said 2-0 for the Wigan
match. None of those six couple it with Bendtner to score first, so the prize this week goes to
"Arsenal Fever" who got the closest time to the first goal. Congrats mate, send me your details and
With winter setting in and everyone shivering on their way to work and back, I thought I'd have a
look at all the other Arsenal blogs around that maybe don't get much of a look-in. This is a good
day to catch everyone in a good mood after Arsenal's easy win last night against Wigan, [...]
One of our Guest Posters, AFC Chazza, was at the Wigan match last night, and wants to give his
Player Ratings to see if fellow Gooners agree with his comments. Over to you Chazza... Arsenal
Player Ratings v Wigan Szczesny: 6.5- solid performance from the current number 2. Not really
challenged, but handled the few Wigan half [.
Arsene Wenger saw his much-changed team beat Wigan 2-0 to reach the semi-finals of the Carling Cup,
but although Man Utd were knocked out, it doesn't mean that Arsenal are now certainties to win
their first trophy in five years. They are certainly now hot favourites with the bookies. He was
asked if Arsenal fans were [.
