WENGER SETS ARSENAL UP TO FAIL by Uche Watching yesterday's game against Chelsea was like watching a re-run of Friends or Seinfeld on the comedy channel, and you know what happens with re-runs?

Arsenal 0 v 2 Chelsea Match Report Infographic by Matt from allarsenal.com Arsene Wenger opted to field a fairly senior side against an inevitably strong Chelsea team, and despite calling on a host of our big name stars, Jose Mourhino's men were clinical and the Gunners are out of the Capital One cup.
Wenger had to sign a striker in summer by Dave N I am absolutely furious. Watching Arsenal try to score against a strong and resolute Chelsea side with Nicklas Bendtner up front was like watching a bullfighter facing a boll with a feather duster rather than a sword, and the painful truth is that it [.
Podolski return imminent by AT Well, there's finally some positive news on the injury front for Arsenal fans. After the long-awaited return of Spaniard Santi Cazorla, Arsenal are set to welcome back forward Lukas Podolski to the first team, with fellow wideman Theo Walcott also not too far away from a comeback.
It seems as though the Arsenal midfielder and stand-in captain Mikel Arteta does not lack any confidence in his young Arsenal side. The Spaniard seems to be of the opinion that the squad he currently leads is very capable of challenging for silverware this season. Arsenal have not won a trophy since clinching the 2005 [.
Arsenal 0 â€“ 2 Chelsea Capital One Cup player ratings by KJ Fabianski â€“ 6 Was suspect for the first goal we conceded but couldn't do much for the second. Wasn't very commanding. Jenkinson â€“ 4 Absolutely awful today. Did everything wrong. Constantly gave the ball away and miss hit most of his crosses.
After reports emerged not too long ago about Arsenal's interest in Fiorentina wide player Juan Cuadrado, the transfer tavern today has linked the Gunners with a more established Serie A star. According to TalkSport, the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is seruously considering a move for Napoli's aggressive holding midfielder Gokhan Inler.
Arsene Wenger's team selection for Arsenal to take on Chelsea in the Capital One cup was a good blend of fringe and first team players. Arteta and Flamini were out of contention due to injury and suspension, so that area was perhaps the most vulnerable, and Wenger chose to play both Ramsey and Wilshere in [.
Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal players could probably have done without tonight's Capital One Cup tie, although it is always a good opportunity for some of the up and coming young players, as well as those on the fringe, to get some game time under their belt and experience a proper crowd. If it had [.
After Emmanuel Frimpong survived a mass clear out by Arsenal of players who were surplus to requirements, it seemed like the Ghanaian born midfielder had a future with the club. When you consider that his playing position of defensive midfielder is one of the least well covered in the Arsenal squad, then this season promised [.
Arsenal could grab Lewandowski on the cheap! by Ash Arsenal spent a huge amount of the summer transfer window looking for a suitable player to either be a backup to Frenchman Olivier Giroud or to support him in the attack and many of the names mentioned were those under the category of â€˜world class' players.
Fellaini admits Arsenal interest by AT The Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has shed some light on his Â£27.5 million move to Old Trafford this summer. The reported Arsenal target has claimed he did snub interest from the Gunners to move to the reigning Premier League Champions. In an interview with beIN Sport, reported by [.
We all know that Olivier Giroud is doing much better for both Arsenal and France this year, and his headed goal against Crystal Palace on Saturday took him level with the goal machine that is Aaron Ramsey, at least as far as Premier League goals are concerned. Strangely, the two are also locked on the [.
The Arsenal scouting network should currently be in full effect, hopefully working towards bringing some fantastic new talent to north London to give Arsene Wenger and the current squad a timely boost as they try to end the trophy drought with the big prize of the Premier League crown. One player they have been checking [.
Arsenal vs Chelsea Capital One Cup preview, line up and score line by KJ Arsenal take a break from the high octane Premier league and Champions league to play a home game at the Emirates in the League cup.

It is time for all you Arsenal fans to get your thinking caps on again. The Just Arsenal T-shirt competition is back again and this could be one of the toughest predictions of the season yet, mainly because we have pretty much no idea who will actually be playing, for either side. Jose Mourinho may [.
Wenger likely to sacrifice league cup once again by KM I was screaming for some important Arsenal players to be rested against bottom of the Premier league Crystal Palace. Some of the boys looked tired and with the kids managing to scrape a draw at West Brom for the league cup, I think a few [...]
Why signing Gnabry to long term contract is a big deal by KJ Arsenal have just confirmed that they've extended the contract of German wunderkind Serge Gnabry until 2018. This is brilliant news for us as he's one of the top young prospects amongst our ranks and is already proving he's ready for Premier league [.
I know that I might be just a tiny bit biased towards Arsenal, but I was dismayed on Saturday when the Gunners were yet again the victims of a couple of poor decisions by the referee, Gnabry's penalty and Arteta's red card. It didn't cost us this time, apart from Mikel Arteta having to miss [...]
Should Arsenal sign Casillas? by KJ It was well reported in the summer that Arsenal were after a multitude of keepers that would most likely start for us. We were definitely in for the likes of Asmir Begovic and Julio Cesar, apparently. But most won't know that we were according to some reliable sources in [.
After speculation over the summer continues into the autumn one of the most talked about stories is the long lasting saga of Cesc Fabregas and a potential return to the Premier League. Fabregas joined ArsenAL when he was just 16, coming from amongst the Barcelona youth ranks and soon enough he became a fan favourite [.
Is it finally time to try Verm at DM considering our options? by Ash There has been a lot of talk surrounding Arsenal captain and Belgian international defender Thomas Vermaelen in recent weeks and its largely down to the fact that Vermaelen himself has stated that should his situation regarding his playing time with Arsenal [.
Podolski back soon by Ash There is some good news on the injury front for Arsenal fans as it has been reported that German forward Lukas Podolski should be back to train with the first team this week. Podolski, who arrived in the summer of 2012 from Bundesliga side FC Cologne, was fairly average in [.
Arsenal's big week by Ash Arsenal can now look back and think about this week's Premier League round as being very successful. Our rivals for the title may not have dropped points with Liverpool, Spurs, Chelsea and United all having won their respective games, but Arsenal also won against Crystal Palace meaning that once again [.
Only three players have started 14 of the 15 games Arsenal have played this season, and they are Olivier Giroud, Wojciech Szczesny and Per Mertesacker. And, despite all the talk about first team players needing rest, the big German international defender is probably going to play again against Chelsea tomorrow.
Mikel Arteta will only miss one game for Arsenal after being sent off against Crystal Palace yesterday. That means he will miss the Capital One cup clash against Chelsea at the Emirates on Tuesday, a game that he was not due to play in anyway. It is just as well, really, because the Spaniard and [...
It is difficult to be too critical of Arsene Wenger this season, with Arsenal playing some fantastic football and sitting on top of the Premier League table as well as the Champions League group of death. Two summer signings by the Frenchman have had a massive part to play in the resurgence of the Gunners, [.
Crystal Palace 0 vs 2 Arsenal Match Report Infographic: by Matt Here is the latest infographic report from our friends over at allarsenal.com for you to enjoy, while basking in the ability for Arsenal to look down on the other 19 Premier League teams: Ten man Arsenal managed to keep out a battling Palace side [.
Crystal Palace 0 â€“ 2 Arsenal Player Ratings by Kj Szczesny â€“ 8 Surprisingly had a lot more to do than I expected. Made some routine saves in the first half but it was his second half contribution that got him the MOTM award by BT. He made two outrageously good saves and was commanding [...]
Is Arteta's time coming to a close at Arsenal? by Ash When Mikel Arteta signed for the Arsenal back on transfer deadline day 2011, I don't think any of us expected him to become as important as he has been to the club over these past few years. Defined as one of Arsene Wenger's panic [...]
It was vitally important that Arsenal won against Premier League strugglers, to keep up the momentum of the title challenge and at the same time bounce straight back from a rare defeat. The Gunners did that, but it was a much more difficult game than most of us expected. The points were secured, though, and [.
Can the Koscielny â€“ Vermaelen partnership ever work? by KJ Whenever you see Mertesacker down, potentially with an injury, or you think about the possibility of rotating the Arsenal centre backs for the Capytal One Cup, you think about the Koscielny â€“ Vermaelen partnership. You remember that both of them individually are pretty good players [.
Arsene Wenger could afford yo be a bit magnanimous after Arsenal took all three points against Crystal Palace, but if Wojciech Szczesny had not been on top form and Arsenal had not won, then I have a feeling that he would have been a lot more critical of the referee Chris Foy. There were two [...]
Unlike some of the players who have walked out on Arsenal in recent years, the reason for Cesc Fabregas' departure was not about money or the failure of the Gunners to win a trophy since the 2005 FA cup final. The plain truth is that Cesc would never have left his hometown club Barcelona in [...]
Arsenal and the Vermaelen situation by Ash There has been a lot of speculation surrounding Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen's future at the Emirates in recent weeks and although he has stated he may have to look elsewhere in January if his situation doesn't change by then, it doesn't mean he definitely will leave.
Arsene Wenger was clearly not taking anything for granted for the Arsenal trip to face Crystal Palace, the team only kept off the bottom of the Premier League table by Sunderland. The manager knew the importance of bouncing straight back from the defeat by Dortmund, and so made just two changes to his side, and [.
Chance for Arsenal to increase their lead at the top. by KM Arsenal are sitting two pretty points in front of Chelsea and Liverpool and with the moneybags of Stamford Bridge and Manchester City playing each other on Sunday, the Gunners will get a nice chance to put some distance between us and them, as [.
There is little doubt that Jack Wilshere has been seen as one of Arsenal's most important players, for his stunning entrance on to the football scene a few years back and for the long future ahead of him with the Gunners. Just like his team mate Aaron Ramsey, though, a long injury lay-off has threatened [.
While a great deal of media hype features around Arsenal's new found star Mesut Ozil and the return of Santi Cazorla, many seem to be forgetting that there are some players in this team that have been around the squad for many years now and in fact they play as much of an important role [...]
If Arsenal are successful in an attempt to persuade the 17-year old striker Antonio Sanabria to accept a transfer from Barcelona to north London, it will surely be because the up and coming young player feels he will have a better opportunity to further his career in the Premier League with the Gunners.
Arsene Wenger is well aware of the importance of the run of games coming up for the Gunners, with Chelsea in the league cup, Dortmund away, and Liverpool and Manchester United in the Premier League. The domestic title is the big one, though, and Wenger has no intention of taking it easy against today's opposition [.
Crystal Palace vs Arsenal preview, line up and score line by KJ It's been a long time since Arsenal have had to play a game on the back of a loss. We lost to Dortmund not because they were a better side than us we were just naÃ¯ve. This is arguably worse than losing [...]
I am sure that I am not the only Arsenal fan to be just about fed up of the constant injury problems that Arsene Wenger is having to deal with, but hopefully the Frenchman will soon have an almost full squad to choose from. It could not come soon enough, as the real business part [...]
Mertesacker still concerned about Arsenal's defence! by Ash So far this season one of the main reasons behind Arsenal's impressive form is because the team has worked massively on the defensive part of the game. Although a 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa on the opening day of the season seemed to prove this wrong with [.
Arsenal missed out on Adler several times! by Ash Arsenal have been supposedly looking for a goalkeeper to solve the club's persistent issues with the man in between the sticks, because for many years it's been a position that the club has struggled immensely with. Ever since the departure of Jens Lehmann, Arsenal have gone [.
Olivier Giroud has been a beast for Arsenal this season, and the French international is one of the main reasons why the Gunners are sitting on top of the Premier League. As well as showing himself to be a much better finisher than we thought he looked in his debut season, Giroud's two assists against [.
It seems like Arsenal may be forced into the transfer market for the Aston Villa and Belgium striker Christian Benteke in January, or risk seeing the talented 22-year old move somewhere else. Reports of interest from other clubs are getting more regular, and there could well be a transfer tussle for Benteke when the transfer [.
As Arsenal sit on top of the Barclay's Premier League for the meantime at least, we can all wonder how an earth we have managed to gain so much success so far this season when last year we were a team struggling to attain 4th place. Now of course the Premier League is a long-haul [...]
We are back to the bread and butter of the Premier League, and Arsenal will be desperate to put Tuesday's unfortunate loss to Borussia Dortmund firmly behind them with a thumping win against relegation threatened Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park tomorrow. Personally, I will be happy with scraping a 1-0 win with a dodgy penalty, [.
Arsenal Reality Checklist by Simba It's really been a while since I last wrote something on our Guns. The last I thing I wrote about Arsenal was how our participation on the Summer Transfer window showed how Arsenal meant business. Then bang!! Ozil the best play-maker in the world came in and an old gun [.
Unfortunately for Arsenal, Theo Walcott's return from injury has suffered a setback and so Arsene Wenger is going to have to without him for at least the next two games. So far, the Gunners have managed pretty well without him, although we will never know what difference he would have made against West Brom and [.
You get the impression from Jack Wilshere that he would love for Arsenal to be playing Borussia Dortmund again instead of Crystal Palace this weekend. The 21-year old was clearly disappointed, as were we all, with the result on Tuesday, but it has not even dented his belief Arsenal and their ability to turn the [.
After a flying start to the season for Arsenal, the midweek defeat by Dortmund was disappointing, but far from disastrous. Not only do Arsenal still sit at the top of the Premier League and Champions League group, the manner of the defeat was not confidence sapping and will hopefully not mean much in the long [.
It is pretty remarkable what Arsenal have done so far this season, but when you consider that Arsene Wenger has done it with a squad ravaged by injuries, it starts to look incredible, but there have been signs that the fixture list has started to take it's toll on the Arsenal players. The first team [.
There is still time for things to change, but at the minute it is looking like Arsenal could get the Spanish international striker Fernando Llorente in January. The move would probably only be a loan deal, but it could be perfect for both sides, or all three if you include his current club Juventus. The [.
Dortmund loss shows how tough our group will be! by Ash Arsenal got this year's campaign off to a flying start with a Premier League record that has seen the club rise to the top of the table, a Capital One Cup penalty win and a good start in the Champions League, but unfortunately it's [...]
Ozil and Cazorla together at last by Ash Arsenal's defeat yesterday may have been slightly undeserved but there was certainly nothing unjust. I felt we underperformed compared to previous weeks and ultimately Dortmund showed their class with some clinical finishing. That was obviously the difference between the two sides; however one thing that was noticeable [.
Arsenal will still beat Crystal Palace this weekend by KJ It's just been announced that Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway has agreed to leave the club after a run of seven defeats in eight. He struggled at times in the Championship and although he brought in 14 players, none of them really strengthened the squad [.

Disappointing performance costs Arsenal and we need to bounce back. by KM A disappointing performance and bad defensive mistakes leave Arsenal with two away games to the teams we'll be battling with for a place in the Champions League last 16. I certainly expected a performance matching the one against Napoli.
Why Arsenal lost against Dortmund by Big Gun Dear Gooners, Let's be frank. We were the better team last night. We had more possession and the majority of the second half was dominated by the Arsenal. We were pushing the ball around and I really thought a second goal was in the making (Cazorla's shot [.
I know that we always hear that confidence is a big thing in football, and Arsenal have good reason to be confident this season. I just wonder if that confidence led to us pushing too much in the latter stages of the Champions League game again st Borussia Dortmund. Of course we wanted to win, [...]
The difference in the performances of Olivier Giroud for Arsenal from this time last season are fairly clear to see, and his two assists for Jack Wilshere and Mesut Ozil against Norwich took his assist tally in the Premier League last last season's already. His goals tally of 17 in all competitions last time was [.
Arsenal 1 â€“ 2 Borussia Dortmund, Player Ratings by KJ Szczensy â€“ 7 Had a decent game. Couldn't really do much about the goals he conceded. Sagna â€“ 6.5 Was really poor in the first half until his assist. He was pretty good in the second half with link up play but was at fault [...]
There was no real reason for Arsenal to be lacking confidence, but a game against last season's Champions League finalists was always going to be a tough test for the Gunners. Maybe that is why Arsenal started a little bit slower than they have been doing recently. There were signs of nerves out there, and [.
This is the big one for Arsenal. Borussia Dortmund are probably going to be one of the best teams that Arsene Wenger and his players come up against all season, but with the way Arsenal have been playing, Dortmund could probably say the same thing, so hopefully the Emirates crowd can be a great third [.
After Arsenal carried on their fine form against Norwich, scoring four goals, two of which could make it into the Goal of the Month pick, you would think that the Gunners had done enough to silence the doubters and convinvce people that this is not a blip. We may not be favourites for the Premier [..
With Arsenal preparing to take on one of last year's finalists, Borussia Dortmund, at the Emirates stadium tonight, it is remarkable to see the incredible run of form that started with a trip to play the other finalists, and eventual Champions League winners, Bayern Munich.

Arsenal will be gunning for glory! by Ash Arsene Wenger isn't usually someone for optimism when it comes to being praised so early on in a season and it's because he very well knows, with several years of experience, how the game of football can change in an instant, as can a club's entire season. [.
Parlour reckons Flamini is Arsenal's main man! by Ash Over the past couple of years Arsenal have often been labelled as a â€˜one man team'.

The big month of November lies ahead of us, and [.
Arsenal will have to take on the beaten finalists from last season's Champions League without the hey players Theo Walcott and Mathieu Flamini due to injury.

Wenger is better than Fergie By skywalker Many people will not agree with this title because of the trophies that Alex Ferguson has won compared to Arsene Wenger. But is it just the trophies won that matter? Fergie is definitely an amazing manager, but after he retired, we find something that Fergie couldn't achieve during [.
The possibility of Arsenal being able to beat the likes of big spending Manchester City or last season's treble winning German giants Bayern Munich in a transfer tussle would not even have been a serious consideration at this time last year, but just one signing, Mesut Ozil, has catapulted the Gunners into the ranks of [.
Arsenal persistently linked with Benzema! by Ash Once Arsenal develop a link with a player in the transfer market its unusual to see the media let it go, as they like to extricate every single piece of Arsenal news to the extent where it's on its last legs.

So full marks [.
Because he has been the manager of Arsenal for 17 years now, Arsene Wenger knows most of the former players who are still working in football in one capacity or another.

The first game for Arsenal after the international break seems ay first look to be a nice, easy home game againsy the struggling Norwich City of Chris Hughton, but it would be foolish for the Gunners to take this too lightly.

Aaron Ramsey has without a doubt been the main topic of conversation this season, not just with those connected with Arsenal, but in the Premier League and even on the international stage.

It has seemed to many Arsenal fans for some time now that the majority shareholder Stan Kroenke was more concerned about running Arsenal Football Club as a profitable business rather than a successful club on the pitch.

Arsene Wenger has actually been able to enjoy an AGM of Arsenal Football Club for the first time in years.

A potentially dangerous partnership for Arsenal by Joe Hey Arsenal fans, what's up?

Aaron Ramsey's goalscoring this season has been nothing short of incredible. The Arsenal midfielder is showing no signs of slowing down, either, having scored again last night to snatch a point for Wales against runaway group leaders and talent filled Belgium. And it was not any old goal, it was a beauty.
Not only is Bacary Sagna one of the oldest serving Arsenal players, he is also one of the last players at the Emirates to be allowed to get into the final year of his contract. The Club vowed to learn its lesson from situations like that with van Persie, and we saw all the young [...]
Although we do not yet know the extent of the injury to Mesut Ozil, there is a good chance that he might not be ready to play against Norwich City when the Premier League starts again at the Emirates on Saturday. The German international was on the end of a hefty challenge as he inspired [...]
Will Diaby ever be a first team regular? by Rory QArsenal are currently dripping with top midfield talent. Ozil, Cazorla, Ramsey, Wilshere, Arteta, Flamini and Rosicky. These are all top notch central midfielders at the club, with perhaps Rosicky and Arteta approaching their career's end, probably not this season but perhaps the end of the [.
How Arsenal's double pivot will work by YA Top of the table after 7 games, who would have thought?. Confidence levels are high as the sky in the Arsenal camp and so they should be. Wenger's critics seem to be in hiding and everybody is in love with how things have turned out so far. [...]
When Olivier Giroud arrived at Arsenal last summer, there was a lot of pressure on him. There shouldn't have been, because he was not that expensive, at around Â£10 million. He was also making the difficult step up from France to the English Premier League, and we have seen plenty of players struggle with that, [.
Cross your fingers and anything else you can cross Arsenal fans, touch wood and get your lucky rabbit's foot out. The thing that we all dread about these international breaks is one of the Arsenal players picking up an injury, so the sight of the new star signing Mesut Ozil limping off the pitch early [.
Arsenal's Miyaichi wants to develop with the help of Ozil! by Ash Ryo Miyaichi and Mesut Ozil may be on totally different ends of the footballing spectrum, with one being a world class superstar and the other being an upcoming talent, they actually aren't too far apart because now that they share an Arsenal dressing [.
Arsenal fans may feel that the English media is often too intrusive and too hard on players, especially Arsenal players, but apparently they do not even come close to what the football press is like in places like Spain and Italy. I don't think it is every player in La Liga that has problems, but [..
It still seems slightly unreal to see Mesut Ozil on the pitch in an Arsenal shirt, even though he has settled in so well he could be one of the Gunners' longest serving players. Maybe it is because Arsenal spent so little for so long, that we never really expected Arsene Wenger to spend quite [...]
It seems that, for the moment, Wojciech Szczesny has got the Arsenal number one jersey nailed down, but Arsene Wenger showed last year that he has no qualms about dropping the Polish international if his performances are not up to scratch. Szczesny is well aware that there are two players ready and waiting for their [.
It makes you wonder how other teams cope, because Arsenal have not got a massive squad by any means, but it is still difficult keeping all the players happy. It is only really the midfield area in which the Gunners have serious competition for starting places, with Ozil, Cazorla, Wilshere and Rosicky all vying for [.
Wilshere can't keep out of the spotlight! by Ash Jack Wilshere has always been a character both on and off the pitch for Arsenal, but more recently it's with the England national team that has been putting the talented midfielder in and amongst the headlines, sadly for all the wrong reasons. Wilshere has always been [.
Arsene Wenger admits that the transfer window is much harder nowadays! by Ash Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been criticised a lot in the past by both the media and the club's fans when it comes to his transfer policy because ultimately, to put it plain and simple, Arsene Wenger doesn't like to spend large [.
I am not alone in having banged on about Arsenal trying to sign the Poland and Borussia Dortmund striker Rober Lewandowski for some time, but I must admit that it seemed like it was never really going to happen. It seemed to be the worst kept secret in European football that the highly talented 25-year [.
Wenger won't give up on youth policy! by Ash Arsene Wenger has always been one for having a strict Arsenal transfer policy when it comes to the footballing transfer window; however things looked to have changed with the more recent acquisition of Mesut Ozil from Spanish super club Real Madrid. Arsenal managed to secure a [.
Why Podolski has to improve if he's to return to the Arsenal starting line up by KJ Ever since England's 4 â€“ 1 against Montenegro on Friday, there has been a lot of questions over Theo Walcott and his England career (completely ridiculous questions I might add), and there have even been people in the [.
Cazorla still cannot believe that Mesut is a Gunner! by Ash Mesut Ozil may have been an Arsenal player for around a month and a few weeks now, however the feeling still hasn't died down with some people yet, with many still absolutely amazed by his signing. I for one could not get over the [...]
You will not get many Arsenal fans complaining about the form of goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, at least not this season. The young polish international stopper was the subject of a good deal of criticism last season, though, and his below par performances led to him losing his first team places for his country as well [.
Could Reus be the answer to our title hopes? by Never Give Up Arsenal are in a dream of a position right now. I mean who would have thought we would be sitting at the top of the Premier League table come mid-October. We're currently in a strange position, because none of us expected [...]
It is quite hard for most Arsenal fans to keep our feet on the ground at the minute. It seems to be asking for trouble to get too optimistic about the chances of winning the Premier League title for the first time since the amazing feats of the Invincibles led to the Gunners being champions [...]
There are some players who we hear about needing to keep a certain edge of aggression in order to perform at their best. At Arsenal, you could possibly include Jack Wilshere and Mathieu Flamini in that category, while former captain Patrick Vieira loved a good battle to fire him up. However, there are other players, [.
It was quite a surprise to Arsenal fans when the Club was linked with the Manchester United and England striker Wayne Rooney this summer. It was even more surprising when the chief executive Ivan Gazidis declared that the Gunners would have no problem matching Rooney's massive pay packet from Old Trafford.
As you may know, the mighty Arsenal are happily sitting on top of the Premier League and leading in the Champions League group ahead of Borussia Dortmund, Napoli and Marseille. There is another table we are leading, and have been doing since the season started, but this one is not so good. The Gunners are [.
Ever since Arsene Wenger became the manager of Arsenal Football Club on that fateful day just over 17 years ago, the Gunners have often had a large French contingent in the squad, and the current crop of players is no different. Here is a picture of Arsenal's four French first team internationals, and they certainly [.
It makes a nice change for Arsenal not to be drawn against the Greek side Olympiacos in Europe, and the way their star striker is finding the back of the net this season, it could be a good thing, although Arsenal's Champions League group is quite hard enough thanks very much. Konstantinos Mitroglou was a [.
Robert Pires is one of the many former players who have kept close ties with Arsenal Football Club. He is also the latest former Gunner to return to the Club to train and keep himself match fit, so he has been able to see at first hand what effect the record signing Mesut Ozil has [...]
Money isn't everything it seems. Even though Arsenal Football Club has started to flex it's financial muscles a bit more, as shown by the record signing of Mesut Ozil, it is still a drop in the ocean compared to the big spending of the champions of France, Paris Saint-Germain. So if Arsene Wenger was at [.
It seems like Arsenal could have finished the summer transfer window on September 2nd without having smashed the Club transfer record to sign Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid. At the time, everyone was surprised at the deal, and Arsenal fans were simply over the moon. The fans calling for Wenger's head were happy to admit [.
There is a media report claiming that Arsenal will face a great deal of competition for the signature of the Paris Saint-Germain and Argentina player Javier Pastore. The 24-year old is apparently set to be the subject of a transfer battle between at least three clubs, with Liverpool and Arsenal from the Premier League, and [.
While Arsenal are usually well represented in various international teams, it was odd to see England start the first of two crucial World Cup qualifiers with not one Gunner on the pitch against Montenegro. Jack Wilshere and Kieran Gibbs were on the bench, while Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were unavailable due to injury.
The modern game and the wide player by Joe Hey guys I am Joe and this is my first Arsenal article. So I've gotten into heated arguments a couple of times over Theo Walcott and what his role should be at Arsena, and I would like to use these particular arguments as a case study [...]
Nicklas Bendtner is certainly an enigmatic character. I was going to say he is like Marmite to the Arsenal fans, but it is not really like that. I think we all realise that the Denmark international striker had talent, but he kept failing to produce it and his attitude and off field behaviour got in [.
Arsenal are not ready yet. by ESA August: Arsenal are convincingly beaten on the first day of the season by 15th place favourites Aston Villa. I was, like many Arsenal fans, livid with Arsene Wenger. After the Villa game, hostile feelings were again starting to emerge from each and every Arsenal fan towards the [.
Arsene Wenger has either changed his tactics intentionally this season, or his players are somehow failing to keep hold of the ball as they did last season. The fact that the Gunners are sitting in top spot in the Premier League strongly suggests that the former is the case. Last season, a huge part of [.
Arsenal's international round up by KJ Arsenal had quite a few first team players representing their countries with most having world cup qualification on the agenda. England vs Montenegro Starting: None Subs: Wilshere He only had 10 minutes but started a brilliant move that would've surely ended in an England goal had Sturridge been onside.
The transfer rumours linking Arsenal with a large number and wide variety of goalkeepers has been going on for some time now, but they were especially fervent this summer. It is understandable really, because of the somewhat erratic performances of the young Polish international keeper Wojciech Szczesny, and the sale of Vito Mannone.
Arsenal set to sign another Barca wonderkid! by Ash It's a well-known fact that Arsenal have one of the best youth academies in Europe and although it shouldn't be confused with the fact that we produce lots of quality players, in fact the majority come through the ranks after joining from another club early in [.
Something has got to give at Arsenal. Arsene Wenger really does not like the January transfer window, but Olivier Giroud cannot play every minute of every game this season. So the smart thinking is that the boss is going to have to sign someone in January, but we have heard many times from the Frenchman [.
You would imagine that Arsene Wenger and his scouting team at Arsenal Football Club already have a good idea of the players that the Gunners could try to sign when the January transfer window opens, but it could still change a lot before that time, depending on injuries picked up by the current players, weak [.
After the first round of international games, Arsenal fans can relax a little, because the main news is that no more players got injured. The squad is already missing too many, but the imminent return of Santi Cazorla, Theo Walcott and more will give a great boost to an in-form team, so as long as [.
Serge Gnabry must be pinching himself about how his season is going so far. The Arsenal youngster, who turned down a tempting offer to return to his boyhood club Stuttgart in the summer, went on the pre-season tour of Asia. He performed admirably in those games and perhaps it was training and playing with the [.
The young Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere probably wishes that the English media and the world of Twitter would find something else to talk about at the minuted, because for the last week or so he has been embroiled in controversy, partly due to his own actions and partly due to misunderstanding and over-reaction.
Alex Song once again linked with Arsenal! by Ash Arsenal rarely get linked to their former players when it comes to transfer news and if there is a report, it's usually an Arsenal legend like Thierry Henry or Cesc Fabregas, however the rumour circulating now is that another current FC Barcelona man Alex Song is [.
Who should we buy as our new RB in the summer? by KJ As many of you will know, Bacary Sagna is into the last year of his contract and it seems that contract negotiations have stalled. Apparently, we're only prepared to offer Sagna a year extension on his current contract. I can certainly see [...]
It was not too long ago that the idea of seeing Nicklas Bendtner back in an Arsenal shirt would have brought howls of derision from Gooners everywhere. But football is, as they say, a funny old game, and the great Dane has already played for the Gunners a couple of times this season. Bendtner has [..
It is no secret that Arsenal have not been the nost attractive club for potential signings to join in recent years. In fact, most of the big name players have been heading in the opposite direction, but that mat be about to change. By breaking the club transfer record, and by so much, Arsenal seem [.
Why Arsenal failed to beat West Brom by Dave N Arsenal are top of the Premier league, as well as being in control, so far, in the Champions League's hardest group, so I know I am not going to be popular when I question the manager. However, I am still disappointed about the West Brom [...]
Podolski nears Arsenal return! by Ash Lukas Podolski has some very good news for Arsenal fans, writing on his official Instagram account, along with a picture: â€˜An intensive week of training found its end. I'm working hard for my comeback!' The Arsenal striker has been out with injury ever since Arsenal's second Champions League qualifying [.
Arsenal now have their own Zidane in their side! by Ash Arsenal have always been known for having quite a strong midfield, especially over the course of Arsene Wenger's 17 year reign with the club. However, aside from the glory days of the early 2000's, it's hard to argue that we have never had a [..
If nothing changes before next summer, Arsenal will have to without Bacary Sagna next season. The French international right back is in the last year of his current deal with the Gunners, and it looks like that may be the end of the road for Sagna at the Emirates. I am not going to have [...]
Arsenal fans still have reason to question Wenger by Dave N I know that this is not a good time to be questioning Arsene Wenger. Arsenal have been doing brilliantly since collapsing to Aston Villa on the opening day of the Premier League season. We are kicking ass in the Champions League as well, and [.
Player's announce â€˜Injuries' ahead of international break! by Ash As the international break weekend comes round again for the second time this season, Arsenal must again sit back and wait for all the players to return safe and sound. Usually everyone associated with a football club is desperately hoping that there is no bad news [.
The Spanish striker Michu has had his rapid rise to stardom underlined with an international call-up to Spain, and there transfer rumours linking him with a possible move to Arsenal in January, but I nearly choked on my cornflakes when I saw the price tag being talked about as being around the Â£30 million mark.
Does Gibbs get the recognition he deserves? by Ash Kieran Gibbs has come a long way over the past five years or so, having turned from a poor Artsenal winger, to a soon to be world class left back! Gibbs didn't actually come through the youth ranks at Arsenal like many perceive, because the left [...
There have been a number of revelations at Arsenal Football Club this season, so it is understandable that the form of Olivier Giroud has not gained as many column inches as he deserves, but he has got absolutely no need to have to defend his career with the Gunners, but he clearly feels that he [...
There has been a fair bit of discussion among Arsenal fans this season about Jack Wilshere. Maybe because the fans were hoping that he would start like a train after suffering niggling injuries last season in his comeback from a very long lay-off. I am not getting into all that now, but I am safe [..
Do we need a little bit of Hernandez? by Ash Arsenal have been doing perfectly well up front so far this season and we have certainly scored plenty of goals, most of which have actually come from midfield with Aaron Ramsey. However that's beside the point and it is in fact Frenchman Olivier Giroud who [.
It is being reported that Arsenal look set to lose one of the longest serving and most reliable players at the club net summer. The French international right back Bacary Sagna is back with a bang this season after an inconsistent season last time, when he was taking some time to recover from his two [.
Guest Post from Following Arsenal's opening day defeat to Aston Villa, who would have thought we would be top of the league come mid-October! I've always been an optimistic Gunner, but I would not have predicted that in my wildest dreams! I mean, there's more chance of West Ham United beating Tottenham 3-0 at White [.
You may think that Arsenal do not really need any more creative and attacking midfielders, but that's what people said when we signed Santi Cazorla, and again this summer when we smashed the club transfer record for Mesut Ozil. So the talented young German midfielder Julian Draxler has often been linked with Arsenal, but his [.
Why it's Ok to change your opinions by KJ Twitter today has been rife with criticisms of those who've changed their opinions on certain Arsenal players, as they've become better players. Is it right to have a go at those who change their opinions? Absolutely not! Football as a sport is built upon the rivalry [.
Is Podolski is the striker we are all crying out for? by Ash I have seen that a lot of Arsenal fans still think we need a new striker if we are going to seriously challenge for the Premier League or in fact any trophy this season and therefore its vital that another star player, [...]
Return of the non-flying Dutchman by Big Gun Dear fellow gooners, It comes to no surprise that the signing of Ozil and Arsenal's current brilliant form at top of the league has turned many a head in the football industry, including an Arsenal hero and legend, Dennis Bergkamp. In an interview with Telegraph Sport, he [.
There have been all sorts of theories proposed as to why Arsenal did not reproduce the excellent sort of performance that saw them go on a fantastic run and win 10 games in a row. Wilshere was blamed, Wenger's tactics, Giroud and the Arsenal defence and some just felt that West Brom played very well [.
I am not going to be too hard on the Arsenal and South Korea striker Park Chu-Young, but it is safe to say that his time with the Gunners has been a big disappointment for all sides. Many expected him to be part of the mass clear out from the Emirates this summer, but he [...]
Arsenal at the Top... Whats changed? by MC So it seems that many footballing fans, pundits, experts and so on are somewhat astounded to see Arsenal at the top of the Premier League. Although without trying to get ahead of ourselves, I have taken the liberty to highlight exactly what has changed over the last [.
Tomas Rosicky has been at Arsenal Football Club for over seven years now, so he must be as keen as anybody to get his hands on some silverware. The fact that he is 33-years old now and well aware that the fight for places in the Gunners midfield is fiercer than ever, with Mesut Ozil, [...]
We need to find another Mertesacker or Koscielny and Vermaelen need to work together! by KJ Last season Arsenal had the second best defensive record in the league and that was mainly because of the brilliance of Per Mertesacker. His intelligence, maturity and responsibility ensured that we held it together when it counted most during [.
It seems that a lot of Arsenal fans would not be too happy if Arsene Wenger was to sign the Real Madrid and France striker Karim Benzema in January, apparently because he is having a spot of bother locating the posterior of a Fresian with a rudimentary stringed instrument (or he can't hit a cow's [..
Patience is a virtue Arsenal fans by Big Gun Dear Gooners, It seems that every time one of the Arsenal players has one or two bad performances, we have swarms of fans calling for their head(s), and ironically enough every time this happens, those fans quick to jump the gun are proven utterly wrong. Ramsey [.
Arsenal interested in Porto man! by Ash The transfer window may not be open in the middle of October, but that doesn't stop the transfer rumours from coming out of the mill, and the new suggestion on the block comes from Portuguese side Porto FC. Arsenal are supposedly still on the lookout for a new [.
There have been plenty of reports about what Mesut Ozil would bring to Arsenal, and he is already proving to be a massive influence, even though it usually takes time for players from other leagues in Europe to get used to the fast and frenetic English form of the beautiful game. As reported by the [.
When Jack Wilshere scored a rare goal for Arsenal at the Hawthorns, it was not enough to inspire the Gunners to turn the game around and extend our winning streak on the road. So Arsenal picked up a point instead of none, but the manager Arsene Wenger is pinning a lot of importance on that [...]
The Arsenal Midfield and the Wilshere Dilemma by Uche The West Brom game has come and gone and while it was not the result we were looking for, we are still top of the league with a single point gained. Nobody ever thought that the path to a premier league trophy would be filled with [...]
When Jack Wilshere scored the equaliser for Arsenal against West Brom, it was just his second goal for the Gunners in the Premier League. That is not a great stat, although it is a little unfair considering all the time he has been out injured. He also scored one when he was on loan at [...]
Match Report Infographic by Matt Well Arsenal couldn't extend the fantastic run of wins away from the Emirates, but they did show fighting spirit to come back from a goal down at West Brom and go into the international break on top of the Premier League. As usual, our friends at allarsenal.com have compiled a [.
Why we need to stay optimistic even after Yesterday's draw by KJ It's been a very positive month or so since our shock loss against Aston Villa on the opening day. We've gone on a 10 game winning streak with impressive performances against the likes of Tottenham and Napoli. Now drawing with West Brom may [.
I wonder if Sami Khedira is hoping to join his German international team mate Mesut Ozil at Arsenal. He is certainly going the right way about getting the Arsenal fans on side, describing the Gunners as the best team in the Premier League now we have signed his former team mate from Real Madrid. It [.
I don't think I am going out on a limb by sating that Jack Wilshere had a poor half today against West Brom. Not many Arsenal fans would have complained if Arsene Wenger took him off at halftime, especially as he had been shown a yellow card at the end of the first half for [...]
After Aaron Ramsey proving 99 percent of Arsenal fans and media wrong with his resurgence, who is next? Could Abou Diaby return to the squad in the new year and never miss a game again? Could Nicklas Bendtner give up socialising and start smashing in the goals, proving himself to actually be the Greatest Striker [.
Arsenal fans should be over the moon by Sam P Hey Gooners. Well we have got to the second international break and Arsenal are proudly sitting in number one spot in the Premier League table. Unfortunately, it is only by goal difference as we could only draw at West Brom, but come on guys, we [...]
West Bromwich Albion 1 â€“ 1 Arsenal, Player ratings.by KJ A very difficult game at the Hawthorns ended in a deserved draw that keeps Arsenal at the top of the Premier league for the international break. Player ratings: Szczesny â€“ 8 Very commanding in his box and made some top quality saves. Jenkinson â€“ 6.
While one former Arsenal left back anxiously awaits a medical report on a damaged rib, the current holder of the position at the Emirates, Kieran Gibbs, is doing the same thing but for different reasons. Arsenal fans' favourite (NOT) former defender Ashley Cole had to be substituted in Chelsea's win over Norwich yesterday, and he [.
There seems to be a lot of criticism heading Arsenal's way after they failed to carry on the run of wins away from home, but is that fair? It was a stuttering performance from the Gunners, and it seemed to be across the board. Wilshere and Jenkinson are getting a lot of the stick, but [...]
Arsenal headed to the Hawthorns looking to record a phenomenal eight straight league wins on the road. Their opponents West Brom, however, were coming off the back of a very good performance and win away to last season's Champions Man United, so this was always going to be a tough test. Sagna had joined the [.
Arsenal go into this game against West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns just one point behind Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table, so another away win would mean that the Gunners would return from the international break with daylight between us and the chasing pack. In fact, because we have the same [.
When I talk about a fast start for Arsenal, I am not talking about the individual games, but about the season as a whole. Before the Premier League even kicked off in August, I wrote about how we would need to really make the most of the opening ten games, and so far it is [...]
I must admit I was surprised to read Kenny Dalglish writing such positive things about Arsenal, especially seeing as we are going to knock his beloved Liverpool off the top of the table as long as we don't lose to West Brom. Also, not only is he a Liverpool legend, he has just rejoined the [...]
West Bromwich Albion vs Arsenal preview, line up and score line by KJ It's been a very impressive start to the season so far but other teams have also impressed and it'll require a win at the Hawthorns to ensure our position at the top of the Premier league until after the international break. West [.
Even before Arsenal sold Alex Song to Barcelona last summer, many fans and pundits thought that the major problem that the Gunners had was a lack of a `proper` defensive midfielder. After Patrick Vieira and Gilberto Silva had left the club, too often did we seem to show a soft centre, especially with teams like [.
How many times last season did Arsenal start games badly and give themselves a mountain to climb? Answers on a postcard please, but it was certainly a lot. It can happen to all teams, of course, but it became an unwanted habit for the Gunners last season and cost us many valuable points. In fact, [..
Despite a brilliant start to the season, Arsene Wenger has told his Arsenal players that they need to keep improving. The manager is not saying that they are not good enough, though, just that they cannot afford to rest on their laurels and think they are doing fine. There is a saying, applicable to football [.
There is a lot of talk around Arsenal at the minute about the competition for places, and it is certainly a better situation to be in than the Gunners found themselves in not too long ago. The Premier League season had only just started, but injuries left the Arsenal bench looking like the under 21 [.
After years of being the penny-pinching, sensible and careful team of the Premier League, Arsenal stunned everyone by breaking the club transfer record to sign Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid this summer. Arsene Wenger did not just break it, though, he took a sledgehammer to it and smashed it to pieces. To be fair to [.
Mikel Arteta is a great Arsenal vice-captain. His cool head is a huge asset both on a and off the pitch. He is also a great role model for the other players in the squad, so they will listen to him when he says things, and amidst the growing excitement and confidence, his voice or [...]
Theo's return crucial despite Arsenal's current form by MW Theo Walcott has been injured for quite some time and Arsene Wenger has not come out and said when he will be back for Arsenal. I don't know about other Arsenal fans, but the absence of Walcott is quite evident when I watch us play. Personally, [.
Arsene Wenger is not asking the Arsenal fans to bring laser pens to the game to blind the opponents, or to sneak some dodgy Lasagne into their catering supplies, but the Frenchman does think that Gooners have a big part to play in helping Arsenal to success this season. He is talking about the support, [.
As it seems increasingly unlikely that Arsenal will be able to sign Luis Suarez, whether in January or next summer, then Arsene Wenger is going to have to turn his attention elsewhere. One striker who is believed to have been close to moving to the Emirates a couple of times already, Demba Ba, could be [.
Okay Arsenal fans, here is another chance for you to get your hands on a highly sought after limited edition T-shirt, of if we haven't got any of them it will have to be a Just Arsenal shirt instead, lol. The format is the same, so we want three things from you: A. The correct [...]
As the rest of the Premier League and Europe begin to take notice of Arsenal and their current run of form, Arsene Wenger has warned them that it is not a fleeting thing. In fact the Frenchman claims that the Gunners will keep improving, which is a scary thought if you are a West Brom [...]
One of the biggest transfer sagas of the summer involving Arsenal, was the curious case of Gonzalo Higuain. The Argentinian international was linked with a move to the Emirates for weeks and weeks, and it seemed at one point that the deal was done, but for whatever reason, Real Madrid sold him to Napoli, along [.
Wenger should not be given new contract yet by Dave N Do Arsenal play in red and white? I wonder sometimes because everything seems either black or white with us at the minute. One minute, Wenger has lost the plot, his passion and any tactical awareness he once had. He was an accountant, a tool [...]
Get ready for this Arsenal fans (drumroll), Jack Wilshere was pictured with a cigarette in his mouth!! Once you have picked yourself up, let me just say that I don't think all the press attention is necessary. He has been admonished by the Arsenal boss, and has issued a statement that he was not smoking, [.
Arsene Wenger seems to have a magic touch at producing left backs for Arsenal, with Kieran Gibbs well on his way to reaching the heights, and even surpassing, the previous two of Gael Clichy and Ashley Cole. Hey, you never know, we might even hang on to this one. The 24-year old seems to have [...]
There is absolutely no way that the Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen is not gutted about losing his place in the starting line up, but he is showing exactly the attitude you would want from a club captain, and putting the good of the team in front of personal satisfaction. The Belgian did get his first [.
Why Wenger got it tactically correct against Napoli by KJ It's been a couple of days since that impressive win against Benitez's Napoli and everyone even now is still feeling high off that result. I wanted to dig a bit deeper into how Wenger tactically outwitted Benitez in the tie. The game was built up [.
It seems a bit churlish to mention it, seeing as Arsenal are sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League table and their Champions League group, but we are still a striker light. Olivier Giroud is going great guns this season, and I don't think it is a flash in the pan, but one [...]
From being the poster boy and the next best thing at Arsenal, Jack Wilshere has found himself struggling to get a regular place in the starting line up. But there are various reasons for that, and the 21-year old England star knows it is better for the club to have more top quality players. He [...]
Wenger Silences his Critics by Celia The Arsene Wenger snipers have gone quiet of late with attention now turned towards the problems of David Moyes, Jose Mourinho, and Manuel Pellegrini. It seems a lifetime since the 17th August home defeat to Aston Villa, a result which left many of the club's critics in the Betfair [.
Confidence is a huge factor in most things, especially sport and especially football. The lack of it is probably to blame for a lot of Arsenal's problems of late, most recently the Gunners' struggles against the big sides in the Premier League last season, but that looks to be a thing of the past. Arsenal's [.
The trials and tribulations, and even despair, of the summer transfer window are long gone for Arsenal fans. The club sits on top of the Premier League and is in control of the Champions League group of death, while the kids got past Premier League opposition in the Capital One cup. But even when the [.
Arsenal have one more game to play before the annoyance of the international break, away to West Brom on Sunday. Although it is not a vital game, as such, Arsene Wenger and his players will be very keen to win it and keep up the brilliant run of form. It would also keep Arsenal clear [...]
Arsenal experience the violence of football! by Ash Arsenal fans may have been left absolutely thrilled about the 2-0 victory over Napoli in the Champions League last night, but one thing that failed to be recognised was the terror on the streets that was underway just before kick off! As Arsenal ran out as 2-0 [.
Concerns over Wilshere once again? by Ash Arsenal continued their fantastic team run of form last night, with a great 2-0 win over Champions League rivals Napoli. Arsenal fans were left thrilled with the result and it means we are now unbeaten in 10 games, with 10 wins out of 10. One of the key [...]
After years without a trophy for Arsenal, the French manager Arsene Wenger has had to endure more than his fair share of criticism in recent years, but with the Gunners playing some of the best football around at the minute, and after demolishing Napoli to make it 10 wins in a row in all competitions, [.
When Arsene Wenger was interviewed after Arsenal's emphatic second straight win in the Champions League group of death, he surprised quite a few people with his reaction. Wenger is usually good in interviews and is always positive about his team and players, even if most of us thought they had been poor.
Both Santi Cazorla and Lukas Podolski were pictured at the Arsenal game last night, watching from the sidelines and celebrating with their team mates at the end of a fantastic win over Napoli. If I was them though, I would be a little bit concerned about my place in the starting XI when getting back [.
Match Report Infographic by Matt Well anyone connected with Arsenal Football Club is loving life at the minute, as the Gunners go from strength to strength. Some pundits have been saying that we have not really been tested yet, but Napoli came to the Emirates in great form, and left with their tails tucked between [.
