There has been a whole lot of debate and many an Arsenal transfer rumour about the Arsenal and Germany striker Lukas Podolski in the build up to the January transfer window. In fact it has been a subject of discussion almost since the 29-year old forward joined the Gunners from the German club Cologne back [.
Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger have been known to have a bit of a moan about the poor decisions by the match officials that go against us. And there are plenty of examples of that. I understand that smaller clubs feel that the bigger clubs get an unfair advantage from the referees and to be [...]
I thought this Arsenal transfer rumour was all but a done deal, as it was being widely reported in the last couple of weeks that Arsene Wenger had secured the agreement of the player and agreed a fee with his club, Legia Warsaw, but apparently the Gunners could still be in danger of losing out [...]
Francis Coquelin had never really broken into Arsenal's first team squad on a regular basis and it looked like he was finished at the Emirates when Wenger sent him off to Charlton on loan, but he played well at the Valley and when Aaron Ramsey got injured Wenger did the sensible thing and recalled Coquelin [.
It is the halfway stage of the domestic season for Arsenal and our Premier League rivals and, while the Gunners finally seem to be hitting a bit of form and consistency, it is too early to say that we have put the troubles and struggles of the first half of the season behind us. Arsene [...]
Arsenal fans were understandably put out in the summer when Arsene Wenger decided against activating the buy-back clause to bring his prodigal son Cesc Fabregas back to the Emirates, but now Alex Song has also revealed that Wenger turned down the opportunity to bring Alex Song back to the fold. Song, who was a mostly [.
Some Arsenal fans might wonder what problems I am talking about, as Arsenal's next opponents have just earned a creditable draw with Chelsea and won their two previous games, scoring seven times in those three games and conceding just twice, but hear me out. Before that, their confidence took a real battering with a string [.
Not long now Arsenal fans! It is less than two days before the January transfer window opens and most of us are hoping that it will not be much longer than that when Arsene Wenger completes the first Arsenal transfer of the year. There have been hundreds of Arsenal transfer rumours involving all sorts of [.
When the Arsenal and Wales international Aaron Ramsey picked up his latest injury problem, a hamstring strain, about three weeks ago, it was originally not thought to be too bad. It was terrible news for the Gunners of course, especially as Rambo had found his shooting boots in spectacular style with that amazing goal away [.
Arsenal should not have allowed Fabregas to join Chelsea and should have brought back Song Could this have been possible? By Tinashe Shamuyashe (The Analyzer) Watching PL Fan Zone could be a torture if you are an Arsenal fan. From a panel which is rabidly anti-Wenger, to purported Arsenal fans that send emails that [.
That daft red card that the Arsenal and France international striker picked up for losing his rag and throwing a headbutt in the QPR game is starting to look more and more costly to the Gunners. We did manage a plucky away win at West Ham in the first of the centre forward's three games [...]
There have been quite a few Arsenal transfer rumours recently linking the club with a January transfer move for another striker and there have been some big names on the table as well, such as Edinson Cavani from PSG. But with all the forward options that Arsene Wenger already has in the Gunners squad and [.
THere is a great deal of confusion surrounding the Arsenal transfer rumours about a January swoop for the Real Madrid and Germany international star Sami Khedira. And his current club manager Carlo Ancelotti seems to be just as in the dark as anyone, if not more. According to an ESPN report there have been strong [.
Things could hardly have gone any better for Arsenal yesterday. Not only did we beat the team directly above us in West Ham, leapfrogging Sam Allardyce and his team into the bargain, but none of the other teams above us in the Premier League table won either. That means that a win for the Gunners [..
It was an excellent day for Arsenal fans. Not only did we leapfrog West Ham into fifth but we also gained two points on all the teams ahead of us in the Premiership, and are now standing just three points behind Man United in Third Place. Arsene Wenger was understandably pleased with a very hard-fought [.
West Ham 1 – 2 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 8 Claimed a lot of balls into the box with settled us massively during the first half. It was clearly instructed by Wenger and worked really well as it prevented West Ham gaining much momentum after they scored. Debuchy – 7 He struggled [..
It was a very tight hard-fought game against West Ham yesterday, and although Arsenal won 2-1, the Hammers boss Sam Allardyce believes that his team could easily have won by the same scoreline if it had been a different referee. First of all Alex Song had a screamer of a goal disallowed very early on [.
I suppose that it did not matter in the end, as Arsenal were able to soak up the pressure from West Ham and record a vital away win that keeps the little run of results going and moves the Gunners above the Hammers in the Premier League table. However, it was not exactly smooth sailing [...]
In the sixth minute of extra time, the Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny was almost punished for one of the very few things he did not do brilliantly. The Poland international came and did not get a free kick, and Enner Valencia got to the back post with his head for the knock on but put [...]
Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players were under no illusions going in to this game against West Ham. While our away form is pretty shaky, the Hammers have a great record at home and were always going to put is under pressure and test the physical qualities that have been known to let the Gunners [..
It is a huge relief to Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal fans that the France international Laurent Koscielny has passed a late fitness test and is able to start for the Gunners away to West Ham today. With the home side in good form and with Sakho and Carroll in the goals, it could not [...]
I am sure that Arsene Wenger would love to be able to rotate his Arsenal squad and give all of the players that put in such a shift on Boxing Day a well earned rest, with less than 49 hours between that hard fought, 10 man victory and the trip across London to face high [...]
There have already been many centre backs linked with a potential move to the Emirates in the January transfer window. One of the players that seems to be one of the favourites, at least according to a growing number of Arsenal transfer rumours, is the young Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk. But the Celtic star's [.
It doesn't seem very long ago that Arsene Wenger practically conceded that Chelsea were nailed on to win the Premier League this season, although the Arsenal boss has also often stated that the title race is far from over despite Man City and Jose Mourinho's men opening up a gap at the top. Now that [.
West Ham vs Arsenal Preview, Line up and Predicted score by KJ This is our second game in two days and with West Ham having such a great season, a game at Upton Park provides a real test of our ability and determination to compete with Man Utd and Southampton for the top 4 place. [...]
Although the most important thing for Arsenal in the Boxing Day game against QPR was to get all three points in front of the Emirates stadium crowd, Arsene Wenger did take two big positives from the performance as well. And we will need to show both of those qualities again away to West Ham today. [.
The former Arsenal midfielder Alex Song will face his old team mates for the first time tomorrow since he swapped the Emirates stadium for the Nou Camp. And while his time with Barcelona in La Liga has not gone according to plan since his transfer two seasons ago, Song has really started to shine again [.
It was vitally important that Arsenal held on to beat QPR at the Emirates on Boxing day, there is no doubt about that. After playing like puddings and throwing away two points with some awful defending against the 10 men of Liverpool and with tough away games at West Ham and Southampton to follow, the [.
After Arsenal had to hang on with 10 men against QPR on Boxing day, Arsene Wenger was asked about the future of Lukas Podolski at Arsenal. It was because the German international did not feature at all, although the manager was able to explain that the need to dig in meant that he was never [...]
Arsenal yet again gave the fans a frustrating finish after seeming totally in control in the first half. Maybe if Alexis had not fluffed his penalty chance before putting us ahead 8 minutes the half-time whistle then we may have had a more relaxed second half to enjoy. But of course we made it hard [.
Wojciech Szczesny 6.5 The Pole didn't have a lot to do but coped well when needed. No chance with the penalty Mathieu Debuchy 7 Reasonably solid in attack and defence. Harshly treated in the penalty claim Per Mertesacker 6.5 Looked more comfortable than in recent games, but still lacks the leadership qualities of Koscielny Nacho [.
The moment that the red mist descended on Olivier Giroud yesterday immediately caused a big problem for that game as well as the next three fixtures. Even Arsene Wenger actually saw the incident and agreed that the Frenchman should have been sent off. Wenger said on the Official Arsenal website: "It was a deserved red [.
Arsenal are facing a very tough test tomorrow as we travel to face an in form and high flying West Ham. Sam Allardyce has really got his players working as a solid team this season and their place above the Gunners in the Premier League table is no fluke. Having said that, an Arsenal win [...]
I really do not know which way to go on the latest Arsenal performance, because there were so many contradictory things to take from the Premier League home game against QPR. The Gunners did a fantastic job in many ways, by absolutely taking Harry Redknapp and his players to the cleaners. The performance and the [.
There is a rare starter for Arsenal today in the shape of our Czech Republic international Tomas Rosicky. The move to bring the midfielder into the starting line-up is probably being forced on to the manager, but with Arsene Wenger still having to cope without almost every first choice central midfielder in the Gunners squad, [.
There has been an ongoing Arsenal transfer rumour linking us with a move for the Man City midfielder James Milner, whose contract at the Etihaad runs out in June, but according to the Express it seems that Liverpool's boss Brendan Rodgers is also keen to make a move for the England international. Obviously at 28, [.
With the very busy Christmas period ahead, and a few easyish games I might add, Arsene Wenger believes that his Arsenal team have a chance to make up some ground on the League leaders to put them back into the title race. Wenger said in the Telegraph: "Let's see how the schedule goes over Christmas. [.
Despite the arrival of Alexis Sanchez this season, Arsenal have looked short of pace up front and are having trouble getting in behind determined defences, we according to our newest right-back Hector Bellerin, the reason is because Theo Walcott has not been available to introduce more speed into our play.
You do not need me to remind you that Arsenal have not started this season as we expected them to. But despite out rollercoaster form, a seemingly never ending injury list and an early exit from the Capital One cup, I think that the Gunners are not in too bad a situation and there is [...]
Every single Arsenal fan in the world saw Per Mertesacker duck out of the way when Martin Skrtel headed the equaliser for Liverpool against Arsenal last week, but of course Arsene Wenger has come out in defence of the big lumbering German. I'm not too sure of the connection but Wenger thinks that the problem [.
Roll up roll up Arsenal fans, because here at JustArsenal we are ready to give one lucky Gooner out there a proper Crimbo. Our friends over at Huawei have given us a fantastic prize to give away and not only is it a brilliant example of the latest in technology, it is going to come [...]
I don't know about the rest of the global Arsenal family, as we all prepare for whatever this time of year means to us, but one of the things I am hoping that the house breaker in the red and white suit brings me for being a good little boy is the news that Laurent [...]
Just like the last time Arsenal were preparing for a Premier League game, most of the concern about out opponents is centred around one player. It is a bit too simplistic of course, as football is a team game, but just as Raheem Sterling was clearly the danger man for Liverpool on Sunday, it is [...]
I am going to go out on a limb here and say that I do not believe that Arsenal can win the Premier League this season. I know that may be a shock to some of you Gooners out there, but even if the Gunners do go on the sort of run that we are [...]
There have been literally hundreds of Arsenal transfer rumours in the football press since the summer transfer window closed a couple of weeks into the current season and there will be hundreds more before the winter window closes in just over a month. But you never really know whether Arsene Wenger is really keen on [.
It was a bit of a surprise to most Arsenal fans to see the way the Gunners lined up in the away game at Liverpool on Sunday. We already knew that Arsene Wenger would not be able to call on the best defender at the club, Laurent Koscielny, and that turned out to be just [...]
Well it is getting close to the end of another calendar year, when Arsenal fans will start to look back at 2014 and see what the year was like for those of the Gooneristic persuasion. All in all you would have to say pretty good, because the muppets in the football media can no longer [...]
Arsene Knows Best Blame Arsene for Arsenal woes! by KickAssFan Every good driver/car-owner knows that one's car must be WELL MAINTAINED at all times in order to avoid unforeseen regrettable breakdown or fatal happenings as a result of any component of the car malfunctioning. You must know the state of your car before taking [.
When Arsene Wenger first took over as the new manager of Arsenal Football Club over 18 years ago, the Frenchman was not very well known but he soon became known around the world for his innovative ideas, both on and off the pitch. And it is safe to say that most of the football world [...]
That is twice in a matter of weeks that the Arsenal centre back Per Mertesacker has been found wanting when having to defend a ball into the Arsenal box. The German World Cup winner was ruthlessly exposed by the TV pundits on Sky Sports for ducking out of a ball from a corner that led [...]
Maybe the Arsenal board should think about appointing some new staff to help Arsene Wenger behind the scenes at the club. It has been talked about before as the Frenchman has struggled to sign the right players to really push us on, although a lot of the problems in the last few years could be [...]
Now that Arsenal have Olivier Giroud back in the first team after his freak tibia injury at the start of the season, and with Theo Walcott back in training and on the bench for the away game at Anfield, the attacking side of the Arsenal squad is the one thing that Arsene Wenger does not [...]
Okay so the next game for Arsenal is only lowly QPR and it is at least in front of the home crowd at the Emirates stadium on Boxing day, but Arsenal fans were still hoping that Arsene Wenger would have a key player or two back from the lengthy injury list. And while the manager [...]
Before Marten Skrtel was allowed free rein in the Arsenal penalty box to snatch an injury time leveller and deny the Gunners a famous and vital away win at Anfield, there may still have been a few Gooners who were hanging on to the hope that this could be the season when Arsenal win the [...]
The Arsenal injury list was in full effect once again at the weekend and it was only the fact that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain passed a late fitness test that Arsene Wenger was able to name the England international alongside Mathieu Flamini at the heart of the Gunners team for the tough trip away to Liverpool.
One of the few positive things to come out of the Arsenal draw with Liverpool at Anfield yesterday was that, despite being second best for most of the game, the Gunners did come away without another heavy defeat away from home. And the point may be disappointing after Arsenal leading for most of the second [.
Arsenal Linked With Move For Yet Another French Starlet! by A.T. There has been a lot of talk lately in regards to the future of the very talented Lyon starlet Nabil Fekir, who broke into the Ligue 1 side's first-team just last year. Having made an immediate impact in French football with some scintillating performances, [.
Was this a reaction to the result or an agenda against Arsene and Arsenal? By Tinashe Shamuyashe, Zimbabwean Arsenal Fan. Following Arsenal's 2-2 draw with Liverpool I feared that the result had triggered another wave of negativity against the club and manager. I only had to visit Justarsenal and watch the PL Fanzone program to [.
Arsene Wenger has painted himself into the corner with the Arsenal fans in the build up to the January transfer window. The manager has already spoken a few times this season about the nedd to strengthen the Arsenal squad, especially in the area of defence, so there is no way that the Frenchman will get [.
Even though Arsenal were one goal up playing against the ten men of Liverpool, we still managed to throw away the points in the final minutes of the game. And how fearless was Per Mertesacker when he jumped to try and stop Skrtel from scoring? It was basically a dismal performance by the Gunners against [.
Liverpool 2 2 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 7 Made some really good saves, was commanding but did have a bit of a brain fart that could've cost us but fortunately it didn't. Chambers – 5 Very rigid performance. I do worry about him in big games as he was schooled by [...]
Arsene Wenger spoke the other day about how he is ready and willing to spend big money in the transfer market because Arsenal are now out of the financial restraints of building the new state of the art Emirates Stadium. The manager has proved that he is willing to spend big on offensive players like [.
BFG blames Arsenal tactics by A.T. Following the rather fortunate draw away at Liverpool, the Arsenal captain Per Mertesacker made rather interesting comments in his post-match interview. The German international, who is blamed by some for Arsenal conceding the late equaliser, expressed regret at the tactics deployed by Wenger during the latter stages of the [.
Blame Arsenal players not Wenger by Sam P I know that a lot of Arsenal fans will be furious with Arsene Wenger tonight, after an awful first half performance and then allowing Liverpool to score an extra time equaliser to deny us a valuable away win against a big team and a vital three points. [...]
I can undestand why Arsene Wenger wanted to make sure that Arsenal did not have a similar sort of disastrous start that kiiled the game for us at Anfield last season and was evident again in the first half at Stoke recently. But it also meant that we handed the initiative to the home side [...]
It did not take a lot of thought to work out what the Arsenal starting line-up for the Premier League away clash with Liverpool would be. As soon as we heard that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had passed a late fitness test yesterday, Arsene Wenger's Arsenal team almost picked itself. Because of all the injury problems which [.
There has been a lot of talk and comparisons made ahead of the return trip of Arsenal to Anfield where Liverpool produced one of the performances of last season when they simply blew a naive Gunners team away. And although there are likely to be a fair few changes in both teams starting line-ups, the [.
"Who Does What" An overview of the Defensive roles by JA Hey Arsenal fans. Hope y'all fine as we get ready for payback time against Liverpool. So "Who does what" will be a series explaining the roles of players on the field. I wrote this because I noticed that some people tend to fail to [...]
Arsenal need to win away to Liverpool later today in order to go level on points with Southampton after Ronald Koeman's team cruised to a 3-0 win over Everton yesterday. THat ended a dreadful run for the Saints but hopefully Arsenal will still be able to overtake them before we meet at St. Mary's on [.
Liverpool vs Arsenal Preview, Predicted line up and score by KJ Last season, Arsenal were in a strong position when going into this fixture but got completely blown away in the first 20 minutes. I don't expect a similar start as Liverpool lack Suarez and Sturridge who were at the heart of all the problems [.
Arsene Wenger was handed a massive boost as he prepared to head north with his Arsenal squad to face Liverpool at Anfield. Not only do the Gunners need to banish the painful memories of last season, we badly need the three points in order to close to within just a game of our top four [...]
If it was not for the size and the manner of the defeat Arsenal suffered the last time we traveled north to face Liverpool in the Premier League, this would probably not even be an issue. That is why Arsene Wenger, as reported by Arsenal.com, has told the Arsenal players that they should not be [...]
Arsene Wenger has had plenty of little disagreements with managers of other clubs during his 18 years in charge of Arsenal Football Club. Jose Mourinho, Sir Alex Ferguson, Sam Allardyce, Alan Pardew and Tony Pulis are just five names on a long list, but the Frenchman does not normally carry on the rows for long [.
It was back at the start of December and Arsenal seemed to be heading for another disappointing draw at the Emirates stadium. You could say that our opponents that day were unlucky, as Southampton had to play the last 10 minutes with 10 men after picking up an injury having used all their subs. But [.
If Arsenal fans think that the gap between us and the teams at the top of the Premier League table is too large, spare a thought for the poor scousers. In fact, scrap that, let's laugh at them and make sure the gap does not get any better looking for them after tomorrow's game at [...]
The trip to Anfield last season was a real low point for Arsenal and a lot of people will see it as the start of our slide down the Premier League table that left us fighting for fourth place once again. While that is true to some extent, it had been coming and the Gunners [...]
Maybe now that Arsenal have not been drawn to face the German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in the knockout stage of the Champions League, for a change, then their manager Pep Guardiola will not mind selling us one of his players. And by all accounts, the Switzerland international midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri is not really a [.
There is no denying that Arsenal were handed a huge slice of luck when the Champions League draw was made this week. Monaco were far and away the best draw the Gunners could have got and now we are actually the strong favourites to progress to the quarter-final stage for the first time in six [...]
It must be said that Just Arsenal readers have been suggesting that the big gangly striker Yaya Sanogo should go out on loan, if only to give Lukas Podolski and Joel Campbell a better chance to get some more game time on the pitch, now it seems that we are gong to get our wish. [...]
Arsenal Linked with January Swoop of Yet Another Barcelona Forward! by AT While Arsene Wenger's first call of action in January will be to strengthen Arsenal's defence, recent media reports are suggesting that the Frenchman is also planning to comprehensively strengthen the attack as well. According to reports from The Express, the Gunners' boss is [.
Two things that Arsene Wenger has said this week in the build up to Arsenal facing Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday could well give us a little clue about the Frenchman's plans for the festive period. The manager has already given our star man Alexis Sanchez a little rest by leaving him in London while [.
Why Arsenal Can Be Confident of Beating Liverpool! by AT Going into Sunday's clash against Liverpool, Arsenal have won four out of the last five games in all competitions and certainly look to be gathering vital momentum as the campaign nears the halfway point. Despite the humbling experience in the reverse fixture last season, the [.
Who should be the future Arsenal captain? by RC Many fans believe that Mertesacker and Arteta are both no longer good enough to succeed at Arsenal. The lack of pace that the pair have has proven to cause our defence problems. The pair are very intelligent footballers, and there has been very few games without [.
The way things have gone for both clubs in the last 10 years or so, any transfer business between Arsenal and moneybags Man City would only have been one way. In fact the Gunners fans have had to see some of our best players heading north to pick up a nice fat pay packet and [...]
I really hope that the former Arsenal, Celtic and Scotland star Charlie Nicholas is proved wrong about the current state of the Arsenal defence, but he is certainly not alone in bringing it up. The 52-year old TV pundit has warned that Arsene Wenger's failure to strengthen the Gunners options at the back sufficiently has [.
It does not take a football genius to work out where the main danger lies for Arsenal when we travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool. With Luis Suarez gone, Daniel Sturridge injured and Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli....well let's be kind and say not very good, the stand out threat is young Raheem Sterling.
My Arsenal XI to Beat Livepool on Sunday! by AT Following comprehensive wins against Newcastle United and away at Galatasaray in the Champions League, Arsenal will go into the big game against Liverpool full of confidence.

Liverpool v Arsenal Sunday 21st Dec 16.00 Anfield After suffering defeat at the hands of arch rivals Manchester United on Sunday, further pressure was mounted onto the shoulders of Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers. This was followed on Wednesday with what appeared a tricky quarter-final tie away to high flying Championship side Bournemouth in the League [.
Arsenal head into the weekend's big Premier League clash with a great chance of beating a struggling Liverpool team and banishing the memories of last season's 5-1 pasting at Anfield. A win could put the Gunners as high as fourth and will open up an eight point gap on Brendan Rodgers and his players.
It seems as though the Arsenal and England international player Calum Chambers is a bit confused. I sat `player` rather than `right back` or even defender because the `9-year old has already taken up two roles in his fledgling Arsenal career and there has also been talk that he might get a chance to show [.
It would have been a lot better for Arsenal if the Championship side Bournemouth had given Liverpool a rougher ride in the Capital One cup quarter-final last night. Extra time and penalties were what we really wanted, but the Gunners can still make use of that game to our advantage. The fact that Bournemouth got [.
Arsene Wenger has today given us the latest update on the Arsenal injury situation. And while we are still as threadbare as a 10 year old tea towel, there are a couple of very positive bits of news for the Gunners ahead of our first return to Anfield since that horrible 5-1 capitulation last season [.
Why Arsenal Cannot Take Monaco Lightly! by AT The majority of Arsenal fans will be very happy with the Champions League round of 16 draw after drawing AS Monaco and will also be quietly confident of the Gunners beating the Ligue 1 outfit to progress into the Quarter-Finals of Europe's elite competition.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has already had a pretty good season for Arsenal, on a personal level at least. The 21-year old has already played more Premier League games than last season and has missed just one of the Champions League games, also scoring in both competitions. He may have had to move around the pitch, playing [.
The retirement of Thierry Henry from playing professional football has obviously got the Arsenal fans and the football media looking back on his fantastic career and discussing just how good he was. And whatever people think about his career as a whole or his status among Premier League and international greats, there is little doubt [.
There will hardly ever be another Henry! by KM A magnificent career has come to an end ladies and gentlemen! The one true King of Highbury and the Arsenal has retired. Words will never be enough to describe how much this man has contributed to Arsenals history and one of it's most successful periods ever.
The Arsenal and Germany international star Mesut Ozil has been out of action now for 10 weeks, ever since he heard that crack while the Gunners were playing Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and it turned out to be a much bigger problem than anyone first thought (surprise, surprise). But the club record signing is now [.
Arsenal fans were hoping that the Championship leaders Bournemouth could do us a favour by giving our next Premier League opponents Liverpool a tough time and more misery in their Capital One cup match tonight. But it did not quuite work out that way at all and the Gunners now face a more confident and [.
There have been many debates about the various problems Arsenal have had already this season and no doubt there will be many more. The Arsene Out Brigade and the Arsene Knows Best faction may never see eye to eye but when the team are struggling on the pitch, the debates are always more strenuous and [.
When the news broke about the former Arsenal and France international star Thierry Henry hanging up his football boots and joining the TV punditry team on Sky Sports, a lot of us took that to mean that he would not be coming back to the Gunners to work with Arsene Wenger in some capacity after [...]
Who knows where Arsenal would be in the Premier League table if our France international front man Olivier Giroud had not suffered that freak damage to his Tibia while blocking a clearance in the last minute of our game against Everton in just the second EPL game of the season. Giroud had just rescued a [.
Carl Jenkinson only left Arsenal on loan in the summer and as he is a boyhood fan of the Gunners, there is no doubt that he will be desperate to use his time at his current Premier League club West Ham to prove his worth and show Arsene Wenger that he really has got a [...]
It is coming Arsenal fans, and I am not talking about Christmas day, Hannukah or the winter solstice for you pagans out there. The event that is on some of our minds is the January transfer window. Last season it was a disaster, with an injured Kim Kallstrom on loan when we needed so much [...]
Are Arsenal on the Verge of a Move for Yet Another German WC Star? by AT Over the past month or so, there have been several media reports linking the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger with a move for Schalke's Benedikt Howedes once the transfer window opens in January.

Why this Returning Arsenal Star Must Be Made to Work For His Place! by AT According to the latest Arsenal team news, it seems as though the Gunners' record signing Mesut Ozil will be back in the first-team picture following the trip to Anfield this weekend. The German international had damaged knee ligaments prior to [.

While the Arsenal injury problems continue to bite and give Arsene Wenger a real selection headache every time the manager prepares for a game, the problem may not be so extreme this time. At least the Gunners have a week off to rest, recuperate and recharge the batteries before heading to Anfield to face Liverpool [.
The news of the former Arsenal and France international star striker Thierry Henry announcing his retirement from football, or the playing side of the game at least, has quite rightly dominated the football media today and produced plenty of debates about where Henry stands in the pantheon of great players.
While the Arsenal fans are all very happy about today's Champions League draw which saw the Gunners drawn against the French club Monaco, we must still remember that they did qualify at the top of their Champions League group and that is something that Arsenal have found very difficult in recent years.
We all know that Arsenal have had more injury problems than any of our rivals in recent years. And there has been plenty of discussion as to why (and whose fault it is) and also whether Arsene Wenger should have planned better for this sort of situation. But that is not what I am taking [...]
Ever since he signed for Arsenal over two years ago, the France international striker Olivier Giroud has divided opinion, both in the football media and among the Arsenal fans. While the big man has had plenty of praise for his hard work and contribution, many of us believed he would never be a good enough [.
There have been a few horror stories in the press lately saying that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was the latest Arsenal player to join our ever-growing injury list and could be out for the next month at least, but according to an injury update from Dominic Fifield in the Guardian the Gunners medical team are "quietly confident" [.
Calm Down! Arsenal are still in trouble! by DN It does seem as though Arsenal have finally found the right balance and have learned some painful lessons about starting games slowly (a la Stoke) us focusing too much on the attacking side of the game when we should be solid and compact (a la Anderlecht).
Everyone connected with Arsenal should be crossing their fingers, toes and anything else that is cross-able this week and hoping that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain reacts well to the injection he has had to try to ease the groin problem that the Gunner picked up near the end of Saturday's excellent win over Newcastle United.
While most of the talk about Arsenal today will revolve around the Champions League competition, which the Gunners are still in while our next Premier League opponents Liverpool crashed out at the group stage despite am easy looking draw. Brendan Rodgers and his beleaguered players are looking bereft of belief at the minute and will [.
Arsene Wenger was understandably happy after his Arsenal team not only managed to beat an in form Newcastle United on Saturday, but managed to do it in such a convincing fashion that instead of having personal abuse hurled at him in a dingy train station in Stoke, the Frenchman heard `there's only one Arsene Wenger` [.
The Newcastle manager Alan Pardew was very impressed with the Arsenal side that demolished the Magoies by four goals to one, and although he was missing a couple of his top players he admitted that the Gunners played brilliantly. Pardew told the Northern Echo: "We missed Moussa Sissoko (suspended) and we didn't get the balance [.
With five wins now from the last six games for Arsenal, maybe Arsene Wenger was justified in his comments this week that suggested that the terrible first half performance away to Stoke City was just a blip and was a rare exception rather than the mormal way of things for the Gunners. Even with all [.
I am not sure if the Arsenal and England international forward Theo Walcott is worried about getting his place back in the starting line-up for the Gunners, but the 25-year old is going to have to show Arsene Wenger some good form in training if he is to force his way into an Arsenal attacking [...]
Today at 11 am UK time (12 noon CET) Arsenal fans will finally find out who the Gunners will be facing in the first knockout round of the Champions League. Naturally (as we finished second in our group as usual) we are nearly certain to face one of the European heavyweights, and who would be [...]

Arsenal may have finally got a bit of good luck in drawing French club Monaco in the next round of the Champions League, but we need that luck to carry on for us and help is out of the latest injury crisis to afflict the club this season. It is not yet certain, but a [...]
No manager could possibly have planned for the amount if injuty problems that Arsenal have had to cope with already this season. We thought that last year was bad, but so far it is shaping up to be an even heavier injury list for Arsene Wenger to deal with. Aaron Ramsey this week became the [...]
One good win and suddenly there is Only One Arsene Wenger? Please..... by KM Arsenal finally produced a performance typical of ourselves. We played with 2 rested strikers from midweek and it immediately payed off. We were dynamic and too much for Newcastle to handle. Onto the positives. We had 3 rested strikers in Giroud, [.
Arsenal were back to the best in yesterday's 4-1 win at Newcastle and Giroud, and Cazorla scored two apiece to give us a very comfortable victory, not to mention Welbeck's unluckily disallowed finish and the numerous other chances created in the 90 minutes. After the game you would have expected Arsene Wenger to highlight the [.
Let's be honest Arsenal fans and admit that not many, if any, of us could have predicted that the former Arsenal striker Gervinho would have such an impact for his new club Roma in Serie A. We were more than glad to get rid of him last summer and not just because his hairdo was [...]
I must admit that I had never heard of the subject of this one of the many Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds at the minute. But apparently the Brazilian defensive midfield star Romulo is the player that Arsene Wenger is set to bring to the Emirates to solve the central midfield problems that have [.
There has been some interesting news today that the young Barcelona defender Martin Montoya is trying to force the Spanish giants to allow him to leave the Nou Camp in January, despite only having six months left on his contract. The 23 year-old right-back was reported as being in talks with Wenger last summer with [.
Arsenal have four more Premier League games to play before we see the visit of Hull in the FA cup, a re-run of that famous day at Wembley in May when the Gunners finally ended our long wait for another trophy. Really we should already be comfortably in the top four of the league table, [...]
If this particular Arsenal transfer rumour, then I am one Gooner who is hoping that Arsene Wenger is serious and can complete the deal in the January transfer window, although that is not likely to be easy. Benedikt Howedes is, in my opinion, the perfect transfer target for Arsenal. The 26-year old a very talented [.
There was only one thing to worry about for Arsenal fans, well for me at least, as the Gunners cruised to a 4-1 victory over a good Newcastle United team fresh from a win over the Premier League leaders Chelsea. And it was not whether Arsene Wenger was so thankful to the Magpies for stopping [...]
Arsenal fans were understandably worried about which Arsenal team would be on display against Newcastle United at the Emirates today. Would it be the gutless Gunners that were simply blown away by Stoke City last weekend or would it be the awesome Arsenal that tore apart Galatasaray in Turkey? And while Arsenal did not take [.
As usual the Arsenal squad is massively depleted due to injury problems and the suspension of Calum Chambers could hardly have come at a worse time for Arsene Wenger and the club, especially with today's visitors to the Emirates stadium coming fresh off the back of a famous victory over Chelsea. But Newcastle United have [.
Ramsey situation makes Arsenal medical team out to be a joke by PC WENGER SAID ON THURSDAY "He is out. We got the scan last night. I don't know enough to give the extent of his injury." God knows what is going on with Arsenal and injuries, but it doesn't sound like Arsene Wenger [...]
We know that Arsenal are having terrible problems keeping enough defenders fit for the visit of in-form Newcastle United this evening, not to mention the in-form-but suspended Calum Chambers, but I think we can all safely say that Kieran Gibbs, Per Mertesacker and Martin Debuchy are certainties to start the game.
There have been hundreds of posts on JustArsenal from AKBs and AOBs regularly this season, but it seems that the Arsenal players are totally 100% behind Le Boss. Yes we know that the squad has been severely depleted by injuries but Olivier Giroud (who was one of those that have missed a good part of [.
Wenger is now alienating the Arsenal fans by JM Arsene Wenger has done himself no favours with his latest outburst against the Arsenal fans who have been protesting about the results this season. He has made it clear that he thinks it is only a small minority of fans that are calling for him to [...]
Arsenal vs Newcastle Preview, Predicted line up and score line by KJ We've been extremely inconsistent in the league and this means that the top 4 hasn't really been established. At the moment, United are the most likeliest to make it in there but the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool have all failed to [.
It was perfectly understandable for the Arsenal fans to be pretty far from okay last weekend after losing away to Stoke City yet again. It was not just the result that cheesed most Gooners off royally, it was the limp manner of our first half performance against the Potters. For me it evoked memories of [.
There have been many Arsenal rumours saying that Joel Campbell is unhappy spending all his time on the bench since he finally arrived at the Emirates this summer, and that he was looking for permission to go on loan in January to get more first team action, but after playing in the Gunners 4-1 win [.
There is no doubt that Arsene Wenger should have invested in one more defender and a defensive midfielder in the summer transfer window, because injuries (and suspensions like now) have left the Arsenal squad with practically no defenders. But Wenger feels that the Arsenal fans have been harsh in constantly criticizing the weak state [.
Wenger comes out to ruin Xmas for all Arsenal fans by KM We all know Wenger is incapable of leading Arsenal to any further than fourth, but his latest statement highlights the total lack of ambition we have. We have one of the worse defences the league has EVER seen and we are likely to [...]
We on JustArsenal were completely dumbfounded when Arsene Wenger agreed to let Francis Coquelin extend his loan period at Charlton a couple of weeks ago, but t seems the Frenchman has finally seen sense and recalled the France U21 international ahead of this weekends game against Newcastle. Coquelin is very versatile and, although he is [.
I felt really sorry for the Arsenal and England international star Theo Walcott when it was revealed last week that the groin problem the forward had picked up on the last international break while training with Roy Hodgson's squad, may force the unlucky Gunner to undergo yet another operation. Having had abdominal surgery and then [.
Arsene Wenger was handed a massive blow this week with the news that the Arsenal defenders Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal would not recover from their respective injury problems and so the boss was looking at having to cope with the in form Newcastle United with a real headache at the back. With no Arteta, [.
There is some very good news for Arsenal fans who are hoping that Morgan Schneiderlin is the player that Arsene Wenger signs in the January transfer window to shore up our fragile midfield. The France international, who was keen to move to a bigger club in the summer, seems to be no keener to remain [.
I want Real Madrid to sign Lucas Silva, not Arsenal by KJ There has been reports in Marca today that Arsenal have agreed a £12million fee with Cruizero for the transfer of defensive midfielder Lucas Silva. However, there is also reported interest from Real Madrid and it seems it will be very difficult to persuade [.
Everybody knows that Arsenal are in desperate need of defensive reinforcements in January but it would seem that the only way to make sure the new arrival will not need a settling in period is to buy a ready-made Premiership player. This is surely the reason why the Gunners have been continually linked with the [.
The final Champions League game this week gave Arsene Wenger a great chance to rest a few of his overworked Arsenal players because there was little riding on the result. So with the festive period about to provide a stern test of the Gunners squad, with six games in the space of three weeks, the [..
This time it seems to be even worse for Arsenal Football Club and Arsene Wenger, as the manager's hopes of building on the battering we handed out to Gatalatasaray in Turkey and bouncing back in the Premier League after the horror show at Stoke have taken a massive blow. Despite being able to rest a [.
It could be a tough and frustrating time for Hector Bellerin at Arsenal for a while. I personally think that Arsene Wenger should have been using him more in the last few months, with Mathieu Debuchy on the injury list after undergoing surgery to fix his ankle ligament damage. With Monreal struggling at centre back, [.
The Welshman Aaron Ramsey came back to form with a bang in last nights brilliant win at Galatasary, but he was pleased to praise some of the youngsters that had to step up to the first team. "The ball came to the edge of the box and I thought, ‘why not have a go?'," Ramsey [...]
Lukas Podolski has made no secret of the fact that he is unhappy with being on the bench at Arsenal for nearly half the season, but he was given a great opportunity last night to show why Wenger should not be ignoring him. He played the full 90 minutes for only the second time this [...]
Aaron Ramsey's improved form was the catalyst in Arsenal's convincing win in Turkey on Tuesday night, and the Welshman is hoping that this outstanding performance by the Gunners fringe players will take the pressure off our under-fire manager. There was a great contrast to Saturday's disppointment at Stoke, which ended with Arsenal fans fighting each [.
Arsenal's defensive shortages have yet again been highlighted by Calum Chambers sending off at Galatasary this week leaving them even shorter on numbers for the Newcastle game this weekend. Arsene Wenger has already stated that he would be bringing at least one defensive option to the Emirates in January and with reports saying that Arsenal [.
One win is NOT a corner turned by KM Well well. That 3-3 draw with Anderlecht came back to haunt us at the end didn't it? Arsenal concede unbelievable amounts of goals from average teams (Hello Stoke City!!) and that simply cost us our top spot in a group of terrible sides. The Group finishing [...]
Wenger proved me wrong! by SW All of us that love and follow Arsenal, will (at least at times) disagree, and even get irate at our manager and leader Wenger. Like a few others here, I've been cursing our defence. And I've been mad that we were playing Monreal in central defence, when we could [...]
Arsenal need AOBs and AKBs by Sam P From the title of this article you might assume that I approve of the grief that a few Arsenal fans gave to Arsene Wenger after we lost to Stoke City at the weekend. The truth is that I felt it went too far and was disrespectful, but [...]
I have given up trying to second guess Arsene Wenger, well that is not strictly true but the Arsenal manager does keep proving me wrong. And the fact is that, no matter how much us fans may question his selection policy and think that certain players in the Arsenal squad are not getting the [...]
I know that I am a one for banging on about the referees and the way their bad decisions often seem to go against Arsenal. With all our injury problems and the way we always seem to get a tough draw in cup competitions, it just seems to add to the the struggle that Arsene [...]
The race to sign Marco Reus is hotting up and Arsenal fans are definitely hoping that the Gunners are one of the clubs in with a decent chance of completing the transfer for the talented German international forward. Whether that is to be in the up and coming January transfer window or when his £20 [.
One of the few redeeming features about the way Arsenal have stuttered, started and stopped so far this season is that, apart from Chelsea, none of our big Premier League rivals were punishing us. So despite being a massive 12 points worse off than we were at this point of last season, the Gunners went [.
The quality of Arsenal's signings argument by JA Hello Gooners. Hope you are fine. I've seen recent arguments about the quality of players we sign along the lines of "we are signing average players with hope of them coming good". People also go on to argue that we should be shopping at the same stall [.
Galatasaray 1 – 4 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 7 He actually made a lot of basic saves throughout the game. Was never really tested properly but had to say consistent. Debuchy – 7 A good return by the Frenchman. This should allow us more flexibility now at the back and we should [...
I don't know about the rest of the Arsenal fans, but I have been a bit worried about how the team would cope after Jack Wilshere picked up his latest ankle injury during the unlucky loss to Manchester United a couple of weeks ago. The loss of Wilshere, even though he was showing his best [...]
Arsenal could not have asked for a better start in Turkey. With a second string side out, including some players like Bellerin in unfamiliar positions and some like Podolski and Campbell with hardly any minutes on the pitch, fierce home crowd and a Galatasaray team playing for pride and a new manager, it could have [.
Arsene Wenger had already let it be known that a number ofArsenal first team players like Alexis Sanchez, Laurent Koscielny, Danny Welbeck and Kieran Gibbs would be left in London to recover and recharge their batteries for the Premier League games to come. And with six young players from the academy system going in their [.
No Arsenal player has played in as many games for the Gunners this season as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, although 10 of his 24 appearances for us have been as a substitute. That is probably more than the dynamic young England international expe3cted though, because with a fully fit squad, Arsene Wenger would often leave the Ox [.
Wenger got booed and only has himself to blame by KM So the Arsenal manager felt the love of the fans once more on the way home from that Stoke City miserable defeat. 3-0 down at half time is bad for whichever Premier league side you are, not just Arsenal. Arsene got exactly what he [...]
Wenger should not take so much blame from Arsenal fans by Sam P I know that I am not the only Arsenal fan to still think that Arsene Wenger is the right manager to take the club forward and should be getting respect from the Arsenal fans rather than having to run a gauntlet of [...]
There is a very interesting Arsenal rumour doing the rounds today, as the Express has reported that the Uruguayan hitman Edison Cavani is pushing PSG to allow him to move to the Emirates. The story says that Cavani is very keen on moving to London, and especially wants to work alongside Alexis Sanchez.
The fighting has to stop by Sam P The war between AOBs and AKBs reached new levels after Arsenal's defeat at Stoke City. First of all we had supporters (???) booing Arsene Wenger as he boarded the train for the trip back to London, and then we have actual fist-fights amongst our own fans on [...]
The anger and frustration of all Arsenal fans has been bubbling ever since the Gunners failed to build on the opening day win over Crystal Palace. It has been a bit of a rollercoaster that's for sure, with a few wins in a row to get us believing and then a dismal performance or [...]
Arsene Wenger is not the right man for Arsenal because of his poor decision-making – by Vlad Jensen (jensenvk) There is a lot of talk among fans whether Arsene Wenger is still the right manager for our club or is he past his shelf date? If we analyze the last four years of Wenger's reign, [...]
As you probably already know, Arsene Wenger has decided to leave a number of Arsenal first team players in London, some with niggling injury issues and some just to get a much needed rest before the festive fixtures begin in earnest. So although the manager still wants to win the game, he knows that it [.
Arsenal are not the only Premier League club to get a tough draw, but it just adds more fuel to the argument that we just cannot get a break and that seems to have been the case for a long time now. It is pretty amazing, however, that our first game in this season's FA [...]
Everyone concerned with Arsenal was a bit worried when Theo Walcott, who had by that time made just two appearances as a sub after coming back from an operation almost a year ago to fix the anterior cruciate ligament damage picked up in a north London derby in January, was selected by Roy Hodgson to [.
It is becoming ever more unlikely that Arsenal will be able to mount a serious title challenge in the Premier League this season, failing to capitalise on a first defeat of the season for Chelsea being the latest low point in an already disappointing season. And with it looking likely that the Gunners will draw [.
It looks like Arsene Wenger is going to rest as many of the regular Arsenal team as he can get away with for the final Champions League group game in Turkey tomorrow. But with no League cup games to give the fringe players and those trying to break through from the academy a chance, this [...]
Arsenal Must Mass Clear Average Players and Sign World Class Now! by Nikko When Arsene Wenger arrived at Arsenal, good football arrived. It was not just positive football but also trophies and for the first time Arsenal become a regular competitor at the highest level in England and Europe. His first few years in charge [.
Arsené Wenger please stop the excuses by Joe A Hey guys Hope you are fine. So I saw this story about Wenger not wanting to risk Koscielny and it does make sense. But Mr Arsené Wenger it is you that did not get another centre-back in. To make it worse, all your known targets are [...]
There was more bad news for Arsenal fans on opening their morning papers or going online today to follow up the bitter pill of defeat by the Wenger and Arsenal taunting morons of Stoke City. We are well used to suffering more injury problems than a bunch of drunken chainsaw jugglers though, so it was [.
It seems as though every top club in Europe has been linked with this super talented young player, but if Arsenal play it right, then it could be the Emirates stadium where the Norwegian international takes his burgeoning career to the next level. According to a Daily Mail report, Martin Odegaard is set to spend [.
It would be great if Arsenal could travel to Turkey on Tuesday with a fully fit and fresh squad, win our final Champions League game and then celebrate after hearing that the Belgian champions Anderlecht had done us a massive favour by beating Borussia Dortmund in Germany. Unfortunately, despite all the fairy dust being sprinkled [.
It is very hard to find any positives for Arsenal after seeing us taken to the cleaners by Stoke City, a team we should beat but just cannot seem to manage it at the Britannia stadium. The fact that their fans love to taunt Arsene Wenger, Aaron Ramsey and now every other Gunner just makes [...]
Wenger Confirms that Arsenal Ace Needs a Breather! by AT Considering the red-hot form of the Alexis Sanchez, it is no surprise to learn that the Chilean international has been extensively used by Arsenal so far this season. Speaking ahead of the game against Stoke City at the Brittania Stadium, the Gunners' boss Arsene Wenger [.
Once again Arsenal fans have had to sit and watch our team fail to keep up the momentum and growing confidence that was building up after four good performances and three good results in a row. We were simply awful at the start of today's Premier League game against Stoke City and once their ythird [.
Classical comedy display from Wenger once again! by KM It goes without saying that Arsenal are beaten at the Britannia again! And again we are beaten by our own managers inability to manage a top side football club. The mistakes at the defense do not need to be commented. No keeper, no defenders, nothing.
Why Wenger is To Blame for Stoke Defeat! by AT Following the 3-2 defeat to Stoke City at the Britannia stadium, the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger once again blamed the defeat on the Gunners' defensive frailties, whilst also pointing out the several casualties that were unable to start the game. Arsenal's weakened defence conceded three [.
Why Arsenal Have to Move For this English International! Among the several positions on the pitch where Arsenal need reinforcements, the most urgent necessity at the moment is at defensive midfield. The Gunners haven't had a decent midfield enforcer for quite some time now and our lack of one has cost us on innumerable occasions.
Arsenal travel to Turkey to face Galatasaray in the final Champions League group game. And while we still have a chance to finish top of our group and avoid some of the biggest teams and toughest ties, like Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, I think we will have to trust to luck. It was always [...]
Arsene Wenger will have a lovely warm spot inside him tonight as he can now relax and revel in the fact that the Arsenal team of 2003-04 and the remarkable achievement of winning the Premier League trophy without suffering a single defeat will not be matched, at least not this season. Every Arsenal fans in [.
Well a game that Arsenal were already expecting to be a tough one became even more of an uphill battle when the Arsenal defence failed to deal with a cross from N'Zonzi and Peter Crouch scored after just a minute or so. With the Gunners having an awful recent record against Stoke City, the last [...]
It is not like Arsene Wenger to give away any of his Arsenal transfer plans at the best of times, and with the opening of the January transfer window now less than a month away, the Frenchman is usually even more tight-lipped than usual. So the fact that he confirmed his interest in the young [...]
While Ryan Shawcross has been trying to get the intense rivalry between Arsenal and Stoke City into the forefront of all our minds and get the home fans whipped up into a frenzy before the Gunners arrive at the Britannia stadium tomorrow, Arsene Wenger has been doing the opposite. In his pre-match press conference reported [.
The next few weeks and the rest of the season could be very telling as to how Arsenal are going to line up and which players are going to be favoured by Arsene Wenger for the starting XI. And the fit again French striker Olivier Giroud seems pretty confident that he will be one of [...]
Why Arsenal Can Really Benefit From Old-School Wing-Play! by AT You wouldn't be very surprised to know that Arsenal have three of the best wingers in the Premier League in Theo Walcott, Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain and of course, Alexis Sanchez. The trio, in my opinion, give the Gunners the advantage of being the team with the [.
The way that Arsene Wenger has evolved his Arsenal team to play fast one-touch football to entertain the fans and bamboozle our opponents has often led to comparisons with the tikka-takka football played by an on-form Barcelona side, although we havent had the same ability to win trophies. Right now we have someone perfectly placed [.
If Arsenal can win away to Stoke City today it will make it four wins in a row in all competitions and would surely put the momoies of a poor start to the season firmly behind us and leave us looking forward to the rest of the season with some optimism. But with just one [...]
Although Arsene Wenger dismissed the idea that Arsenal are completely reliant on our summer signing Alexis Sanchez, the manager did accept that the Chile international is a massive player for us. As reported by ESPN, the manager spoke in glowing terms about his striker and all thge things he brings to the Arsenal team, including [.
Arsenal fans being denied the opportunity to express how they feel is just like a dictatorship by KM After two more unconvincing performances by Arsenal in our last 2 home games, some fans thought enough is enough and put up simple A4 sheets stating "Enough is enough, Wenger Out" which got... confiscated!
The Arsenal boss has played down the comments by Ryan Shawcross ahead of Arsenal heading to the cauldron of the Britannia Stadium to face Stoke City in the Premier League tomorrow. The bug Stoke defender does not seem too keen on trying to forget his spat with Arsenal fans and players that began with his [.
While it is true that a club's own fans, with Arsenal no exception, can often see their beloved club and players with rose tinted glasses, especially during a game when we see fouls and bad decisions against us that may not really be there and think our own players are judged too harshly, the opposite [.
It was not too long ago that Arsenal were doing a lot of things right and still not getting the points we thought that deserved. Arsene Wenger suggested that his team were very close to clicking and although bad luck was a big factor, a few tweaks to the balance of our play was all [...]
After Arsenal's poor showing against Anderlecht in the double-header stage of the Champions League Group it looked like we were going to struggle to qualify, but our 2-0 win over an out-of-form Dortmund team has now guaranteed our progression to the knockout rounds. There IS a chance we could still top the group, but the [.
New Kid on the Block : Emi Martinez On the verge of leaving Arsenal in the summer, Argentine 22-year-old goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez feared that his time was up at the Emirates after Arsene Wenger signed David Ospina as back up to number one goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny. Jumping forward a few months we've seen the young [.
Titi must return to the Emirates By Twig I am not a Chelsea fan, but seeing Drogba in his second spell still doing the business for Chelsea gave me a warm fuzzy feeling. It was like watching a repeat of history. Although Drogba has tormented my Arsenal team quite severely over the years I was [...]
It's time for us to get behind the boys by GB It's an obvious fact that Wenger's boys have endured a very slow and disappointing start to the season. It's therefore understandable why most fans have grown so resentful towards the manager. If we look at the performances displayed by Arsenal at the beginning of [.
Despite Arsenal being extremely short on bodies to help with squad rotation, we are hardly going to miss a player that has played about just 25 minutes all season (except for the League Cup game against Southampton where he was anonymous. So it makes sense for Wenger to get Lukas Podolski off the payroll as [.
It was hard work for Arsenal and a very close run thing against a confident, tough and well organised Southampton side, especially with their keeper having one of those nights when it looked like nothing could beat him. But the Gunners kept going and Alexis grabbed us a deserved winner and made it three wins [.
Despite the fact that Olivier Giroud only came on to the pitch for Arsenal last night with 25 minutes left on the clock, meaning he played for about half an hour with the injury time added, I think the France international forward was a good candidate for the best player in an Arsenal shirt. The [...
The fans may have felt frustrated during Arsenal's last gasp victory over Southampton last night, but Arsene Wenger has revealed that his whole game plan was prepared with the thought that the Gunners would win the points in the closing stages of the match. "It was a game where we needed to be patient and [.
I am not going to get into the big Arsenal debate about Arsene Wenger and whether AKBs or AOBs are right, or even whether it is the people higher up at the club, primarily the main shareholder Stan Kroenke, that are to blame for the way the Gunners have slipped from perennial title challengers to [..
Barring any more disasters (hey you never know), Arsenal should have an almost fully fit squad at the start of 2015. Our England international midfielder Jack Wilshere is not due back until late February but Arsene Wenger should be able to call on Ozil, Debuchy, Arteta, Walcott and all after Christmas.
Arsenal 1 – 0 Southampton Player Ratings by KJ Martinez – 6 Another solid performance. He had no real saves to make and that's why he isn't getting a higher score but he was commanding throughout the game. Chambers – 7 Another fairly solid defensive performance. Was pretty good offensively but lacked the option from [.
Arsenal fans as usual had to endure an agonising 88 minutes before Arsenal finally managed to score the winning goal against Southampton last night, but thankfully Sanchez came to the rescue as usual after the Saints were reduced to ten men. Wenger was pleased with the win, but thought that his team were [.
Wenger will not win the title in 10 years, not 3 by KM Sorry for the long post, but the reasons for Arsenal's situation are more complex than just one factor. Arsene Wenger came out with some pretty ridiculous statements about winning the Premier League title in 3 years. I mean, we all enjoy a [...]
Despite the fact that Arsenal have been playing better of late and the visitors Southampton have been showing signs that their Excellent early season form was falling away, Arsene Wenger would have known that his players would really have to be on their game to win. And that became clear early on, after the Gunners [.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger got some good news on the injury front ahead of this crucial Premier League clash with third placed Southampton, as the injuriy doubts on Kieran Gibbs, Nacho Monreal and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain proved to be false. So the former Southampton star Chamberlain joined another former Saint Calum Chambers in the Gunners starting [.
Because of the amount of Arsenal players that have been in and out of the treatment room and therefore the available squad already this season, our new summer signing Calum Chambers has had plenty of opportunity to impress Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal fans following his transfer from Southampton in the summer.
Arsenal vs Southampton Preview, Predicted line up and predicted score by KJ This has been a rocky season and the usual pattern would mean that we'd drop points against Southampton. However, there is hope that we are finally going to push on now and win against the Saints would send a message that we are [.
I have just been reading a preview of the Arsenal home clash with Southampton in the Premier League tomorrow evening and the Talksport report suggests that this game could give Arsene Wenger the perfect opportunity to give a rest to the Chile international striker Alexis Sanchez, but I must say that I disagree.
The good news is just piling up for Arsenal at the minute, and it is about bleeding time as well. Two wins in a row sees us into the next stage of the Champions League and still with a slight chance of topping the group, while Chelsea look like they could start to wobble at [...]
For all us Arsenal fans know, Arsene Wenger might not even be thinking about signing a player to strengthen the Gunners in the defensive midfield area when the January transfer window opens. About 99.9 percent of us hope that he is though and the current injuries to Jack Wilshere and Mikel Arteta, coupled with the [.
Are we wrong in being hasty? by Big Gun I have just read Peter Hill-Wood's statement about Arsenal's ‘ignorant' fans, and by the time you read this it will most likely be the day after. After taking a step back a looking at the bigger picture (and doing some research of course) it seems that [...]
Most Arsenal ans and just about every pundit in the world s convinced that no-one can stop Chelsea from winning the Premier League this season, and even Arsene Wenger said that they were practically unstoppable recently. Le Prof was slammed on this website for giving up so early in the season, and now it seems [.
Bad Publicity Could Be Good Publicity by Gunner SA Usmanov vs Peter Hill Wood, AKB's vs AOB's, looks like division is running right along the chain at Arsenal. If you look at it as a glass half full this could be the best thing that happened to Arsenal in the last 10 years save for [...]
The board ignores the Arsenal fans, but maybe we need to shout louder by KM So Peter Hill-Wood came out to the rampant defense of Wenger. He said "'We are 100% behind him. That is always a dangerous statement, but I can assure you it has not crossed our minds that we wouldn't support him [...]
The tension has been building between the Arsenal fringe players Lukas Podolski and Joel Campbell and the manager Arsene Wenger all season, if you believe what you read in the papers. The young Costa Rican international has claimed that he is happy to fight for his place in the Gunners team, but we keep hearing [.
After more bad luck for Arsenal players in the weekend win at West Brom, it looked like Arsene Wenger might have to do some more juggling of his squad and experiment with yet another different Arsenal back four, as both of our left backs Kieran Gibbs and Nacho Monreal picked up knocks. And the manager [.
It does not take a rocket scientist or even a football expert to see that Arsenal's leaky defence was a major reason for the club's struggles in the season so far. Very few clean sheets, defensive errors, letting Anderlecht come back from three goals down and then the loss to Manchester United when the visitors [.
Arsenal will be feeling a lot better about life right now and will feel much more confident heading into the Premier League clash with Southampton at the Emirates. Not only have the Gunners finally seemed to get it together, but our visitors are coming off the back of a heavy defeat to Man City. That, [.
Peter Hill-Wood, who was the Arsenal chairman for over 30 years until recently, has jumped to the defence of Arsene Wenger after recent protests calling for Le Prof to be sacked. He certainly seems to be thoroughly angry with the "ignorant people" who are calling for Wenger's head and is certain that the Board will [.
Why Arsenal are Overwhelming Favourites against Southampton! by AT Ahead of a very crucial Premier League game against Southampton at the Emirates, Arsenal have been handed a massive injury boost. Firstly, the French duo of Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny both successfully returned to the Gunners' starting eleven against West Bromwich Albion over the weekend [.
Is Stan Kroenke or Arsene Wenger to blame for Arsenal's steady decline to mid table mediocrity..? By PTN I'm asking this, not as a knee jerk reaction from a few embarrassing results- but from a gradual decline in quality and deep concern that's been growing for the past 3-4 years.. A sadness. While most are [.
After scoring the only goal of the game to give Arsenal a much needed win away to West Brom in the Premier League, Danny Welbeck was asked about whether he would be happy playing on the left side of a front three, as he used to do for his former club Manchester United. And although [...]
I really hope that Arsene Wenger's comments the other day about how hard it was to find good quality players available in the January transfer window, at the same time as praising the Arsenal left back Nacho Monreal on his ability to cover at the centre of defence does not mean that us fans are [...]
It would be a lot easier for Arsene Wenger to give a few of his key Arsenal players a rest if the Gunners were doing better in the Premier League and Champions League. And if the visitors to the Emirates stadium this week was not high flying Southampton who have been very strong all season, [...]
The situation for Arsenal could have been so much worse by now if it was not for the fact that almost every other club with hopes of winning the Premier League this year was also having problems. Only Chelsea have really lived up to the billing. So while Arsenal have dropped way behind the league [..
While it has been a very good week for Arsenal with three good performances, although a better result in the first against Manchester United would have been nice, it has been the exact opposite for the team we beat in the second of our games, Borussia Dortmund. It is almost unbelievable to think that the [.
A thought on the AKB v AOB discussion on JustArsenal by KM Arsenal fans seem to be divided in their opinions of late, regarding to whether we want Arsene in charge or we want a change. Now name calling is weak and I don't like this "brigade" thing like we are some sort of sect, [...]
Why Arsenal Have to Sign a DM this January! by AT A lot of the blame for Arsenal's dismal form so far this season has been focused on the lack of defensive depth and stability in the Gunners squad. While we could definitely do with a new centre-back or even two, there is another aspect [...]
It would be just about typical of the bad luck Arsenal have had with injury problems this season. Just when we get our first choice central defender Laurent Koscielny back in the Gunners line-up, there is a chance that both of our front line left backs will be out of action after picking up knocks [.
