Arsenal snap an undeserved point but where are the transfers? by KM Looking at the way the league is shaping up, the gap between the top 7 clubs and the rest is just too big and an away game to Southampton is a must win one for Arsenal. We arrived late for the game and [...]
The Arsenal treatment room has been like Picadilly circus this season. It also needs to have a revolving door fitted because no sooner does Arsene Wenger get a player back from injury then he is replaced by someone else or is back in there himself in no time. What has really exacerbated the injury problems [.
Berbatov, the OX, Draxler and other ramblings By Twig Arsenal has an abundance of midfield talent but it is clear they lack that front man to provide them with an outlet especially when they are highly pressed. Giroud might provide Szczesny with a large and tall target to send the ball to, but unfortunately he [.
Is Vucinic worth signing? by KJ Ever since the beginning of this January window, Arsenal have been linked with out of favour Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic.

Arteta: 'Arsenal Can Cope', But Can They? by AT Just when it seemed like Arsenal were getting close to something of a fully fit squad, the injury curse has struck again. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger revealed yesterday that Aaron Ramsey has suffered a setback in his recovery from injury and it is understood that the [.
Arsenal were already up against with a seriously tough fixture schedule in February and March. Premier League games against Liverpool and Manchester United and a Champions League clash with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich in February and that was before the FA cup draw paired the Gunners with Liverpool.
Many football writers are suggesting that the Arsenal manager has realised all of a sudden that he could do with making a signing or two during the January transfer window, which now has less than 48 hours to run. I don't buy this personally and think that Arsene Wenger and his scouting network have been [.
I must be a glutton for punishment, because I watched the extended highlights of the Arsenal draw with Southampton on Sky last night and got a horrible shock. Not the performance of the Gunners, as I had already seen that on live streaming, but from the prese4nter who dropped a bomb by saying that Aaron [.
Arsenal missed a chance last night, there is no doubt about it. A strangely lacklustre first half performance at Southampton put us right up against it and, in the end, we were relieved to have come away with a point. But reading a lot of comments, you would think we had lost and that the [...]

Southampton 2 â€“ 2 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny â€“ 7.5 He was generally very good throughout the game but was caught out for Southampton's first goal and should've been better positioned. Sagna â€“ 7.5 He was pretty good today up against a very good left back in Shaw. He also managed to make [.

Per Mertesacker has become one of the most important players in the Arsenal team, something that seemed extremely unlikely at times in his first season with the Gunners. The big German international looked slow and clumsy at times, but Arsene Wenger certainly did not sign him for his agility and speed anyway.
Well we are at the business end of the January transfer window Arsenal fans. I know it has been frustrating so far, but if last summer's window was anything to go on, we should not be all that surprised that no new players have been signed by the club yet. There is still plenty of [...]

What the puma deal means for the Gunners! by Ash Arsenal have announced a deal that has broken records for both organisations, with the financial support being Puma's biggest investment and Arsenal's biggest sponsorship deal.

Seriously now, stop it! Leave Arsenal alone and go and pick on someone else for a change. The Gunners have been hit by yet another injury, this time to our young England international Jack Wilshere. It is nothing like the cruciate ligament damage that will keep Theo Walcott out of action for the rest of [.
A lot of the attention of Arsenal fans at the minute is focused on if, and who, could be joining the Gunners in the next few days. But just as important really is having the players already in the squad fit and available. February and March are looking very testing and an FA cup fifth [...]
I suppose as Arsenal fans we should all have gotten used to losing players by now. The number of good players the Gunners have seen join their Premier League rivals is just ridiculous, to be honest just one would be too many but the list is long and has been added to steadily since the [...]
Even though Arsenal have already proved the early season doubters in the media wrong and kept their place on top of the Premier League for most of the current campaign, bookies and pundits alike think that the Gunners will not be crowned champions of England in May. It cheeses me off, to be honest, but [.
It is hardly a surprise for Arsenal fans that we did not get a nice cosy draw in the FA cup fifth round. While there were teams like Charlton Athletic, Sheffield Wednesday and Brighton available, the Gunners got Liverpool. Getting Coventry in the last round was obviously an aberration and whoever drew those balls will [.
There are reports in the media that many Arsenal fans will find distressing. Apparently Jose Mourinho has asked his sugar daddy for even more money and gazumped anyone else's interest in the Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa.

There is no doubt that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would love to be in the Arsenal starting XI on Tuesday night.

A lot of Arsenal fans, including myself, have been wondering what has been going on with Arsene Wenger and Lukas Podolski.

Arsenal Football Club are understandably proud of their youth system.

The Frenchman has a really good [.

Arsenal in a serious situation by Amris The feeling that Arsenal fans from all round the world are experiencing at this junction contains a sort of duality.

If you believe what you read in the newspapers and the comments sections of football websites, Arsenal are absolutely desperately in need of a new striker during this January transfer window.

One of the recent transfer rumours concerning Arsenal was at least for a striker, even if a 30-year old who has not exactly been prolific and has pretty much lost his place in the Juventus side this season had hardly set Gooners' hearts racing.

Draxler latest by AT It appears that rumours of an Arsenal move for Schalke starlet Julian Draxler are quite quickly picking up pace.

Okay Arsenal fans, I am not saying that losing Theo Walcott for the rest of the season is not a massive blow, because it is.

Pundits still don't think Arsenal will win it! by Ash From previous years it wouldn't come as a surprise to hear that by this stage of the season, Arsenal had been ruled out of the Premier League title chase.

Mertesacker: Resilient Arsenal Will Continue to Compete by AT Despite football pundits continuing to be skeptical of Arsenal's chances of clinching the Premier League title this season, it seems as though those within the club are quietly confident of pulling off an 'upset' and coming away with the title in May.

The record signing of Arsenal Football Club has been named in the UEFA team of the year. Strangely, though, he is the only Premier League player to have made the XI.

Arsenal in for Giovinco by AT With Theo Walcott having been ruled out for the rest of the the season and Danish striker Nicklas Bendtner continuing his spell on the sidelines, Arsenal are rather short of options in attack.

When will Poldi play? by Blaz Lukas Podolski is probably the most accurate striker that Arsenal have in the team. And the owner of one of most lethal left legs in Premier league, so the question arises, why isn't he playing more? Why isn't this left leg of his put to it's deadly use? Wenger [...]

It was great for Arsenal fans to see Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain return to first team action at the end of the win at Aston Villa last night.

Serge Gnabry has not yet had a chance to play with his Arsenal team mates Per Mertesacker, Mesut Ozil and Lukas Podolski on the international stage.

Bendtner is still the big elephant in the room By AondoaverK There was a time when one could not say that Nicklas Bendtner was a player that divided opinions among Arsenal fans. But he does now.

Arsenal are able to welcome a coiple of key players back with Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud. And the unlucky Theo Walcott's place will be taken by the impressive young up and coming German star Serge Gnabry. Santi Cazorla gets the nod ahead of Lukas Podolski on the left, but the German forward could be [.
Arsenal did not start the season with as many options up front as most of their main Premier League rivals, but injuries to Nicklas Bendtner, Yaya Sanogo and Theo Walcott have left the Gunners worse off than when they started, despite the summer transfer window and the first two weeks of the winter one.

This is pure speculation Arsenal fans, but it is not just made up. We received a transfer tip-off in the week from a previously reliable source, pointing us to the possibility that the French striker Loic Remy could be the main transfer target for Arsenal in this January transfer window. The two previous tips from [.

That included me, by the way, so I am blown away by the skill [.
Do Arsenal need to sign Julian Draxler? by KJ The rumours have been rampant ever since the summer about a potential Arsenal move for Schalke's Julian Draxler to Arsenal.

According to some media speculation, Arsenal could be considering a move for the Juventus and Italy forward Sebastian Giovinco, possibly on loan until the end of the season.

How has Ozil done in his first 4 months with the Gunners? by Ash Picture the moment, Arsenal fans have just witnessed their side fall to the hands of Aston Villa in the opening game of the season, in a 3-1 defeat. The club is in a strong financial position with excess of Â£70 million [...]

The French right back is one of the longest serving players in the current Arsenal squad, but he is also the one player the Gunners are in real danger of losing against our wishes. And that [.
It seems like Arsenal have got Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain back at just the right time. Losing Theo Walcott in such a disappointing way and for so long, just when the English forward was hitting really good form, could have had a knock-on effect for the whole Arsenal squad. Getting the Ox back at the same time, [.
Arsenal fans were buzzing a few weeks ago when first Theo Walcott and then Lukas Podolski returned to the Gunners squad after lengthy spells out of action due to injury. We jumped on the news a little bit because of the dip in form, especially when it came to scoring goals, being suffered by Olivier [.
There has been speculation all season about whether or not Tomas Rosicky would be given a new Arsenal contract when his current deal expires in the summer.

There is some good news for Arsenal fans on the club's injury situation, which makes a pleasant change.

Hi everyone, I know that some of you don't like the current layout but I assure you all that this is DEFINITELY a temporary solution. The latest update to WordPress killed off my previous design as it was a free one that has never been maintained (although i loved it). It suddenly started using too [.
Most of the Arsenal transfer talk at the minute, understandably, is all about whether or not Arsene Wenger is going to sign a new striker or not, and if so, whether it will be a big name, multi million pound superstar or a stop-gap until the end of the season. But there are other positions [...]

It was not long ago that Arsenal fans spent more time in any transfer window worrying about which players we were in danger of losing rather than dreaming about the quality players that Arsene Wenger might bring into the club. It seems like that time is now over though, especially with the club having flexed [.
Although some Arsenal fans are a little bit concerned about the temperament and discipline of the Brazilian born striker, but Atletico Madrid forward Diego Costa would be the man a lot of us would like Arsene Wenger to sign this January, from those that are potentially available that is.

The young Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom has signed on for a one month loan deal at Brentford. The League One club are flying high at the top of the league table, just like the Gunners, and are looking for a little bit of extra firepower to keep up the challenge, just like Arsenal. The similarities [...
It is safe to say that Arsenal Football Club are sick and tired of injuries. After Arsene Wenger wielded the axe in the summer, releasing lots of young and fringe players, the Gunners were left with a squad best described as lean. And so the last thing Arsenal needed was lots of injuries, but that [.
If, as many people seem to think, Arsene Wenger's preferred option for a new Arsenal striker in January is a loan deal for Alvaro Morata, the Frenchman has really got his work cut out. Morata himself seems fairly keen on the idea, although he did not mention the Gunners specifically, because he obviously wants to [.

The ideal signing by DS First off I should begin by saying that I am absolutely gutted by Theo's injury. He was one of my favourite Arsenal players as he was so different to everyone else in our first team and simply offers something else to our attack. So I wish him a speedy recovery [...]
He may not have played a single minute for Arsenal this season, but Emmanuel Frimpong has still made the news a few times. The Ghanaian's previous forays into the news via social media have sometimes been embarrassing or not really helpful to the Gunners cause, but his latest move will surely endear him to Gooners [.
I don't envy Arsene Wenger right now, even though his Arsenal team are flying high at the top of the Premier League. And the Gunners are having their best season for a long time.

Arsenal have played some brilliant football this season, but it is not possible to do it in every game. It is lovely to watch the flowing style on show against Tottenham on Saturday, but I think we all agree that the most important thing was beating our north London rivals and getting into the next [.
Arsenal have a lot of things going for them this season, with a great team spirit, a manager who has really got his mojo back and a squad full of talented players. So you cannot really say that any one player is vital to the cause, although a lot of football pundits have spoken exactly [...]
Look on the bright side Arsenal fans by Twig I refreshed NewsNow looking for some cheering Arsenal transfer/injury news, only to find some really shattering story.

The last time Arsenal were in with a realistic chance of winning the Premier League title was in 2008-09 season.

We should play the Spain way till the end of the season There seems to be increasing demand from the side of the Arsenal fans that Arsene Wenger should sign a recognizable striker if Arsenal is going to push, at least credibly for the BPL and possibly for other cups. These demands have increased to [.
Young Serge Gnabry is certainly flavour of the month with the Arsenal fans at the moment, and with his teammates too. As stunning derby performance is always a good way to become a favourite, but to do it on your derby debut at just 18 almost guarantees you legend status. It seems to work the [...]
Just when you think that Arsenal's terrible bad luck had run it's course, the Gunners are hit with the massive blow of losing the star player Theo Walcott for the rest of the season. The England international is going to miss out on the World Cup in Brazil as well. It is so unfair on [...]
There were literally hundreds of different players linked with a transfer to Arsenal last summer. It has calmed down a bit with Arsenal having signed Mesut Ozil and doing so well this season, but there are still a few different suggestions for players and positions to be strengthened. One topic I assumed had gone away [.
With Arsenal facing a bit of a striker crisis, especially if fears over the length of time on the sideline faced by Theo Walcott come true, it seems more likely that Arsene Wenger may be forced to sign another striker. That would be no bad thing according to many Arsenal fans, but it seems that [...]
It appears as if all of Arsenal's hopes could be resting on the broad shoulders of Olivier Giroud again, unless Arsene Wenger manages to pull a rabbit out of the hat that is the January transfer window that is. With Denamrk international Nicklas Bendtner already ruled out for about four weeks, Arsenal are sweating on [.

Should Gnabry go on loan or stay at Arsenal? by KJ Serge Gnabry is slowly becoming the next big thing at Arsenal. He's the most mature and highly rated of all our U21s at the moment and has already been drafted into the first team for both the Premier league and now the FA cup [...]
Arsenal versus Spurs Player Ratings By Twig It was a mesmerizing performance from Arsenal. I believe we gave our most devastating attacking display this season.

It all worked out brilliantly for Arsenal in the FA cup yesterday, with a thumping win against local rivals Tottenham. And the fact that Arsene Wenger was able to, or got away with, resting a couple of players was a real bonus. When the draw for the third round was made, it was the last [...]

However, at the start of this season not too many would have been distraught about the fact that his contract was due to expire next summer. It just seemed [.
When Mikel Arteta decided to join Arsenal on deadline day in Arsenal 2011, it was to join a team in a bit of a crisis.

Despite a fantastic day in the FA cup for Arsenal, there was still some concern about the coming weeks and months. With Nicklas Bendtner having picked up what looked like a nasty ankle injury in the last game, and Arsenal already looking very light in the striker department, the last thing the Gunners needed was [.
The Arsenal players were balways going to be fired up for an FA cup clash against north London rivals Tottenham.

Because of the unavailability of Bendtner and Giroud, Theo Walcott was handed the [.

Gnabry will have a big 2014 according to Koscielny! by Ash Arsenal are very lucky to have such talent on the books these days, because if the stars aren't amongst the starting line-up, such as Laurent Koscielny, then they are on the bench and in the reserves as an upcoming player with a lot of [...]

Real Madrid really miss Arsenal's Ozil by Big Gun Dear Gooners, no one can doubt the type of impact Mesut Ozil has had on Arsenal, both politically and in terms of overall team performance since his signing.

Can't believe I'm saying this- let's get Ballotelli By- Gunner Gyzinermouth As the Arsenal transfer season is upon us, speculation and sensationalism are in the air. I too get caught up in considering what I would do were I in Arsene Wenger's shoes. Now I'm not suggesting that I have the tactical acumen Wenger does, [.
Arsene Wenger must be hugely relieved to have Theo Walcott and Lukas Podolski fit again for Arsenal. Because the injuries to Olivier Giroud and Nicklas Bendtner have just highlighted the danger Arsenal face, with a smaller squad than our big title rivals Chelsea and Man City. So it is even more likely that Wenger will [.

Like most Arsenal fans, I was not very pleased when Arsene Wenger decided not to sell Nicklas Bendtner in the summer when he had the chance. But the Denmark international has been slowly proving himself again to the Arsenal fans. His vital goal against Cardiff and his general performance when he replaced Podolski for the [.
I think most Arsenal fans will agree that Lukas Podolski did not have a good game against Cardiff yesterday, but does that mean that the German should not get another chance to play in the central striker role? With Giroud, Bendtner and Sanogo all injured, the Gunners may not have a lot of options. There [.
