Olivier Giroud gets more tham enough criticism for his performances in big games, but perhaps we now know why he failed to perform in the 6-3 drubbing that Arsenal received at Man City. The previous report about Giroud entertaining Celia Kay the night before a match pales into insignificance today as the ever-lovable Sunday Sun [.
I think all Arsenal fans agree that (as usual!) we are just a few players short of being a world-class side, with a top striker being the most imperative for us. So it was quite a shock to see this story in the Mirror, where they state that Arsenal are gearing up for the transfer [...]
WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A GOONER? by RS I know all of you would be sad right now and furious on our team's performance. But Gooners, I want to ask each one of you some very basic questions. What if we don't win the title, should we stop supporting our team? And stop getting [...]
Stoke 1 â€“ 0 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny â€“ 7 Made a couple of decent saves but couldn't do much for the penalty. Sagna â€“ 7.5 He was decent today defensively but struggled offensively as he was often left on his own whilst Cazorla was all over the place. Mertesacker â€“ 6.5 Crouch [...]
Time to give a chance to others? by Gunnerjack Well I woke up hoping I would feel better but no luck the performance against Stoke was truly abysmal. So after my first article stating that Chambo should start every match I'm writing this second one as a kind of therapy in the hopes of [...]
I have had enough of all the bleating about yesterday's result so it is time to look at a healthy Arsenal transfer rumour to improve the team for next season's assault on the title! According to a report in the Metro today, the Gunners are chasing the Austrian centre-half Martin Hinteregger, who has been impressing [.
The young English midfielder Jack Wilshere believes that yesterday's defeat at Stoke could have been avoided if only the Arsenal strikers hadn't missed their chances to take the lead in the first half. "We have to be prepared for it," Wilshere said on Sky Sports. "We know what to expect when we come here, it's [.
AND THAT'S HOW THE COOKIE CRUMBLES by Uche First of all, I want to start by saying that calling a spade a spade is not the equivalent of being negative. I am tired of hearing about Arsenal's failures to win a trophy as well but it is hard to ignore these painful reminders that keep [...]
Wenger wants to take the Premier League chase right to the end! by Ash You may be a little confused to hear that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wants the Premier League title chase to last right until the end because surely if the Gunners could run away with it then that would be better, however [..
Stoke City vs Arsenal match preview by Ash The Premier League is back after a week that saw the players get a rest because of a previous very busy period, Mesut Ozil come under fire once again and transfer rumours galore regarding Arsenal's supposed target Alavro Morata. The Gunners haven't been in action in midweek [.
Arsenal's current longest-serving player Bacary Sagna has looked to be set to leave the Emirates this summer as he has not yet agreed to sign a new contract extension. Talks seem to have been going on for the last 18 months and there have been rumours abounding that PSG and (God Forbid!) Man City have [.
So we have yet another crucial game in the ever-tighter race for the Premiership title and the winner will get an exclusive JustArsenal T-Shirt. Not to be sniffed at! I am going to start a Gallery of JustArsenal readers very shortly so any previous winners should send me a picture of themselves in the magic [.
'The Ox' should ALWAYS start for Arsenal! by GunnerJack When fit and well Chambo has got to start for Arsenal. And why is that? The reason is that he is the only regular player in our midfield who has the power and accuracy to shoot from OUTSIDE the box and so add variety to our [...]
Wenger backs Ozil... by Ash Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has come out to save Mesut Ozil ahead of Arsenal's trip to the Britannia stadium where the Gunners will face Stoke City. Ozil has come under a large amount of criticism in the past few months and last couple of weeks especially. Although some of the [.
Stoke vs Arsenal Preview, Line up and predicted score by KJ It's a rarity to have a week's rest before a game but Arsenal have been afforded such luxury before this crucial game against Stoke. Stoke away has been a terrible game for us. We've failed to win there far too many times and it [...]
With the title race hotting up, Arsenal are still hanging on Chelsea's shirt tails, and with the leaders contesting a relatively easy game against relegation fodder Fulham, Arsenal really need to take all three points from this weekends visit to the Brittania Stadium. Wenger is fully aware that Stoke can be hard to beat at [.
There have been numerous rumours regarding the unhappy situation of Robin Van Persie at Manchester United since David Moyes took over, and it seems that the Dutchman is angling to move away from Old Trafford this summer. When it was originally mooted that the Dutch international could make a shock return to Arsenal, Arsene Wenger [.
Joel Campbell still hopes to make it at Arsenal! by Ash After watching Olympiakos against Manchester United last night I realised two major things. Firstly, one that does not come across as something shocking at all, is that Manchester United are currently in a bigger crisis than Arsenal have ever recently been in, despite not [.
Arsene Wenger defends his decision to give the players some time off! by Ash Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been criticised for allowing the Arsenal players to take two days off this week following the end to their hectic schedule. The Gunners played five times in just over two weeks and a half, four of [.
Is Micah Richards an Arsenal target this summer? by Ash It may be a little way off until the next transfer window, however with rumours circulating Arsenal have started looking at summer suitors already, with Alvaro Morata supposedly being lined up, the story about Micah Richards was one that couldn't be missed.
Is Vermaelen able to play at left back for the Gunners? by Ash It may have been a while since we last saw Thomas Vermaelen ply his trade for Arsenal however he has been named fit enough to make the team squad that will play Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium this weekend. Vermaelen's Arsenal [...]
Jenkinson should be Arsenal's right back next season! by Ash As the weeks go by I become more and more adamant that this season will be Bacary Sagna's last at the Emirates, with the Frenchman increasingly likely to move on for pastures new this summer. Sagna's contract runs out in the summer and with little [.
When we hear about a tough run of games in the media, it always seems to be Arsenal that they are talking about. But that just does not make sense. Apart from the cup competitions, we all have to play the same teams, home and away, so just how much worse is our impending fixture [...]
The famous Arsenal goalkeeper Bob Wilson, who has been involved with the club since 1963 and was a Double Winner in 1971 has no doubt that Arsene Wenger has performed miracles at Arsenal, despite not winning a trophy for the last 8 years. Wilson said in the Independent: "I look not only Arsene's great achievements [.
It was one of the big transfer rumours involving Arsenal in the January transfer window, but the deal to bring young Spanish striker Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid on a temporary basis did not come off. At first it was thought that his La Liga club or his manager would not sanction it, and then [...]
Why Arsenal fans shouldn't underestimate the value of experience by KJ Recently, there has numerous reports about certain players getting or not getting a new contract and fans have naturally been reacting. Some believe we must pay whatever is required to keep valuable players at the club whilst others think that we shouldn't be held [.
A lot of Arsenal fans have been left scratching their heads this season as to why Lukas Podolski has not been used more. Of course, the German forward was out for months with a terrible hamstring injury picked up in just the fourth game of the season against Fenerbahce, which was hugely frustrating for him [.
Over the last week or two there have been a number of stories in the papers and a lot of speculation that Arsenal were taking a keen interest in the situation of Mario Balotelli in Italy. Whatever the fans think of this, it was thought to be unlikely because of a vow he made not [...]
The record signing of Arsenal Football Club has been the subject of great speculation in the media and among fans recently. His performances have been studied from all sorts of angles to analyse why his performances had dropped off recently and nobody was surprised when Arsene Wenger left him out of the matchday squad for [.
Arsenal must take Joel Campbell back next year! by Ash If you watched Manchester United's game against Olympiakos last night, then I'm sure it probably had something to do with the fact an Arsenal player was on the pitch. Whilst one former Gunner Robin Van Persie led the line for Manchester United, Olympiakos had their [.
It was very worrying for Arsenal fans to see three more players added to the injury list in the last couple of games. The fact that two of them, Kieran Gibbs and Nacho Monreal, were both left backs was even worse, especially as Thomas Vermaelen, who can play there as well as in the centre, [...]
Djourou gives a hint he wants to leave Arsenal permanently! by Ash Johan Djourou really has become a lost name at Arsenal and although he may not be currently with the club, I still believe he has the ability to remain with the Gunners for a few more years at least. Djourou is currently out [...]
If you asked every Arsenal fan in the world to write down the top five players they are hoping and expecting Arsene Wenger to sign in the summer transfer window, I bet there would not be many who did not have Diego Costa and Julian Draxler on the list. But there are stories about both [...]
The issue of players getting older at Arsenal has been much in the news recently. 33-year old Tomas Rosicky has apparently agreed a new deal, although it is yet to be officially announced, while the question of whether to give Sagna one, two or three years more has been ongoing for at least a year. [.
Come on Arsenal, sharpen your pencils, get your act together and this time make it count. One of the longest running contract sagas, complete with `will-he-stay-or-will-he-go` stories and clubs all over Europe being linked, could be finally coming to an end and so we should soon know whether Bacary Sagna will still be a Gunner [.
Every Arsenal fan and their dogs expected Arsene Wenger to buy a new striker last summer to complement (if not replace) Olivier Giroud, and that seemed to be confirmed by the Gunners interest in Luis Suarez, but nothing came of it and we got Mesut Ozil instead to calm the fans frustration. But the fact [.
THE SPEECH to Arsenal Players by NS Fear is your friend. Can you feel that burn? That burn, is fear. That 'burn' is energy. Energy is a positve thing by definition. All the media sheep are looking at those fixtures in March and saying that we have no chance. We are too weak to beat [...]
At times last season, it really seemed as if Arsene Wenger's days in charge of Arsenal Football Club were numbered. The fantastic finish to the season, which saw the Gunners catch up with and overtake north London rivals Tottenham, brought the fans back on side, as did the promise from Ivan Gazidis that the club [.
Just how important is Rosicky to Arsenal? by Ash As I am sure you will be aware by now, Arsenal have decided to offer experienced player Tomas Rosicky a new contract, which he has decided to accept. The news has been welcomed by Arsenal fans everywhere because, although his importance can be undervalued by some, [.
I know that there are some Arsenal fans who are still far from convinced that Olivier Giroud has got what it takes to be a Gunner. They took his recent dip in form as proof of this, while dismissing his comeback performance and two goals against Sunderland. Unfortunately for them, Arsene Wenger picks the team [.
Whereas all the football pundits and so-called experts were predicting another frightful February for Arsenal, the Gunners have got to the end of a testing month still bang in the title race. One point behind lucky league leaders Chelsea, and Man City if they win their game in hand, gives Arsenal a real shout of [.
How much of a boost will Ramsey's return to Arsenal be? by Ash Prior to Aaron Ramsey's boxing day injury against West Ham, the Arsenal and Wales international midfielder was having the season of his career so far, becoming the ultimately player in midfield. As you can expect, his injury consequently set the team back [.
Arsenal have often been compared to Barcelona, although many of the Gunners' fans are not too keen on the comparison. There are some similarities, that is for sure, but there are plenty of differences as well. But the Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere would like us to take at least one more leaf out [.
The news broke in the last few days that Arsenal were on the verge of announcing a new deal for our little Mozart, Tomas Rosicky. His current contract runs out this summer and there have been rumours linking him to various clubs including a move to America and the MLS, but it looks like the [...]
It appears as though Arsene Wenger has accepted that his Arsenal players have been working a bit too hard recently, because the Frenchman has apparently given them a bit of a rest this week. It is something that Wenger does not normally do during the season, but he feels that injuries and tough fixtures have [.
The speculation about Arsenal and the striker situation is not going to go away anytime soon. Even if the young French striker Yaya Sanogo and Olivier Giroud score 10 goals each before the end of the season, Arsene Wenger is expected to strengthen his striking options in the summer. One player who is regularly linked [.
It appears that Aaron Ramsey, even though he will not be on the field for Arsenal or even in the matchday squad on Saturday, is going to be targeted by the lovely bunch of people that call themselves Stoke City fans. Strange, what has our mild-mannered Welshman done to provoke such ire in the Potteries?
There has been a lot of talk in the past few days about the bumper new contract for Wayne Rooney and it made me think about the situation between Arsenal and Bacary Sagna. The France international is out of contract in the summer and the club have still not agreed his new deal. I think [...]
I'm sure I don't need to remind you that Arsenal have had one or two problems with players getting injured this season. So it was probably no surprise to see Kieran Gibbs have to be replaced early in the Champions League clash against Bayern Munich, and then his replacement Nacho Monreal went off at halftime [.
When Mikel Arteta decided to join Arsenal from Everton in August 2011, it was probably with the hope that he would add to the medals he won in Scotland as part of the Rangers team. Unfortunatley for the Spaniard, that has not happened yet, although he is closer this season than ever. But there were [.
I know that all of Arsenal's Premier League title rivals all scraped narrow wins this weekend, but I have the feeling that things could just be starting to go our way. If I am right, it is about bleeding time, because no team has suffered worse luck than the Gunners this season. Amazingly enough, Arsenal [.
Arsenal are under no illusions about the sixe of the task ahead of them if they are to progress to the next round of the Champions League. Going to the home of the strongest team in Europe, if not the world, needing to score two goals and not concede just to earn an extra 30 [...]
If anyone involved with Arsenal Football Club was unsure of the wisdom of offering a new contract to a 33-year old midfielder, the performance of Tomas Rosicky against Sunderland on Saturday should have convinced them. Arsene Wenger and the Gunners hierarchy certainly have no doubts, because the new deal for Rosicky is set to be [.
It seems that everyone, including the Arsenal fans, had pretty much forgotten about Yaya Sanogo. When the Gunners signed him on a free transfer from a second division French club in the summer, it is fair to say that he did not exactly set our pulses racing and there were plenty of jokes going around [.
It was a great day for Dennis Bergkamp and Arsenal yesterday, as the Gunners legend was honoured with this statue which immortalises a moment when the Dutch master controlled a ball against Newcastle in 2003. It is easy to forget that, when Bergkamp arrived from Inter Milan in 1995, Arsenal were a fairly uninspiring team.
It is too early to judge after just one game back in the Arsenal starting line-up, but Olivier Giroud looked like a different player to the one who has been struggling recently. What we saw was the Giroud who started the season so well and made all his critics start to eat their words. And [...]
On Arsenal season so far by Glenn I have been one of the Arsenal manager's biggest critics in recent years because i felt he was more concerned with the board room than the training ground. However I must say that there has been major improvement in the team and he must take credit for that. [...]
Is Sanogo ready for the top? by Ash Many wouldn't have predicted seeing young Yaya Sanogo leading the Arsenal front line in two massive crunch games against Liverpool in the FA Cup and Bayern Munich in the Champions League.Olivier Giroud, Nicklas Bendtner or even Lukas Podolski were expected to lead the line against two of [.
The Â£42m scapegoat by gameruk Lets have it right first off, I am a fan of ARSENAL Football Club. I supported this club before the arrival of Mesut Ozil and will support this club well after Ozil has left, so that should keep quiet those guys who bang on about Ozil worshipers etc. Like all [...]
Arsenal are still slap bang in the middle of the most tightly fought and exciting Premier League season for a long time, possibly ever. Now Liverpool have joined in the fun, there are still four really good contenders for the title and even the football pundits and bookies are starting to hedge their bets.
There are still plenty of people who want to shoot Arsenal down, but Arsene Wenger and his players did not give them much ammunition yesterday. The best that the doubters could muster was that Sunderland were not very good. Maybe not, but we did not give them a chance to be. Right from the start, [..
Arsenal 4 â€“ 1 Sunderland Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny â€“ 7.5 Didn't really have much to do but when he did, he was generally good. Shame his punch out for the cross that ended up as a goal wasn't very good. Could've even claimed the ball rather than punching it out. Sagna â€“ 8.5 [...]
Arsenal were denied the chance to go back to the top of the Premier League by a late Chelsea goal which came from Ramires, who seems to get away with everything, conning a free kick out of the referee. But that did not mean beating Sunderland at home was any less important and the Gunners [...]
As I write this Arsenal preview, Chelsea are 0-0 and toiling at home to Everton, opening the door for Arsenal to regain their place back on top of the Premier League. Whatever Chelsea and Man City do, though, Arsenal must beat Sunderland at home to really put the doubts of the last few weeks firmly [.
I don't know if Michael Ballack has any inside information on Arsenal or their German players at all, but my guess would be that he doesn't. The former Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Germany player claimed on Wednesday night that Mesut Ozil looks lost in the Arsenal team and that it is because he had not [.
European football is conditioning for Arsenal by Big Gun Hi Gooners, The Champions League is no doubt where a club's true strength and abilities are conveyed. Many people around the globe continually claim the BPL to be the toughest league in the world, therefore sporting the biggest number of quality teams.
Arsenal vs Sunderland preview, line up and predicted score by KJ It was an extremely tiring game for Arsenal midweek against Bayern and this could arguably be one of our worst performances at home this season because of the work we had to put in on Wednesday to keep the score reasonable. That said, we [.
Arsene Wenger has already suggested, in his pre-match press conference for Arsenal vs. Sunderland, that some of the players are getting tired after a punishing schedule of games and that he intends to rotate his squad today. So just who needs a rest and who can Wenger afford to leave out for this must-win Premier [.
Okay Arsenal fans, it is competition time again. After the highs and lows of the FA cup and Champions League games, the Gunners are back to their bread and butter of the Premier League today. And with Chelsea with a potentially difficult home game against Everton, Arsenal have an opportunity to go back to the [.
Arsenal are back on top of the league. Not the Premier League, at least not yet, but the league of injuries updated regularly on physioroom.com. We have been there for most of the season as well, just like the Premier League but have been off the top for the last few weeks. Hopefully the trend [...]
Arsenal's mental strength is crumbling down! by Ash Arsenal have always had physical talent and quality that can do wonders with the ball, even throughout the troubled past 7, 8 years or so. But what we have lacked massively in is mental strength and it has often been the lack of mental strength which has [.
Sanogo has earned a start and Ozil needs a rest By Uche Hello Gunners. For the first time this season, Arsenal had a really good opportunity to measure our dearly beloved team against the best in the world and they did not disappoint. Many predicted an Arsenal demolition but eleven against eleven, we went toe [.
First of all Arsenal fans, don't jump on me for being blindly optimistic. I know that going to the Allianz Arena to overturn a 2-0 defeat is an order about as tall as Per Mertesacker, but am feeling a whole lot more positive about it than this time last year. Why? Because not only did [...]
Everyone is entitle to their opinion, of course and on close calls you normally have at least two of the three pundits disagreeing. Except when it comes to Arsenal it seems. We all know about how biased Michael Owen is, especially towards Liverpool and against Arsenal, but it seems the contagion is spreading to Sky [.
One of the many things that the Arsenal fans have learnt this week is that Arsene Wenger knew what he was doing when he signed Yaya Sanogo on a free transfer last summer. There was wholesale scoffing in the media and among rival fans. Cheap and French was about the size of it, a typical [...]
Arsenal have come through a horrible period of games a little bumped and bruised but in miraculously good shape, mentally and physically. The Gunners have a tough job to do in Munich but it could have been much worse. They have got a home tie in the FA cup quarters and are somehow still just [...]
There is no time for dwelling! by Ash Arsenal endured a disappointing night only highlighted by the fantastic atmosphere that was ringing around the Emirates from the first minute till the last. The fans were fantastic but the team was not, in a game that was arguably Arsenal's toughest of the season so far.
They may sound like a strange comedy duo, but Juan Cuadrado and Zakaria Bakkali could soon be plying their trade on the Emirates pitch if the recent transfer rumours hold any water. And they would both bring pace and wing play to an Arsenal side that has really struggled for it since losing Theo Walcott [.
The boys did not lose the match Wenger did by O.A. Good day all Arsenal fans out there, well I have decided write a few things about last night, so please let me know what you think in your comments below. We could see against Bayern Munich that immediately that red card was produced, our [...]
After Arsenal endured a frustrating Champions League tie against Bayern Munich, when a brilliant start turned into a 2-0 defeat that leaves the Gunners teetering on the brink of another last 16 exit, much of the blame was laid squarely at the feet of the German international Mesut Ozil. The papers and sports websites have [.
Arsenal 0 v 2 Bayern Munich by allArsenal.com The Gunners were understandably overrun in the possession stats, reduced to 10 men in contentious circumstances after 37 minutes, and unfortunately failing to score after an exciting start to the game. Arsene Wenger made a shock decision to include youngster Yaya Sanogo, a former Ligue 2 free [.
Arsenal 0 â€“ 2 Bayern Munich player ratings by KJ Szczesny â€“ 6 Did well to save an early Kroos shot but as we all know, he was sent off 10 minutes before half time and although the referee was sticking to the laws of the game, it seemed harsh. Completely killed the tie with [...]
It appears as though Thomas Vermaelen has had enough. The Arsenal captain has reportedly decided that ce can wait no longer and has told Arsene Wenger that he wants to leave the Emirates in the summer. It is a situation that has been on the cards, and in the papers, for some time now but, [...]
I said the other day that Arsenal had little to lose and a lot to gain from this Champions League game against Bayern Munich and, despite defeat, I think that we can take quite a few positives from the game. Mertesacker and Wenger certainly didn't sound too negative in their post-match interviews. The fact that [.
Football writers and Arsenal fans will all be expecting Arsene Wenger to spend some money in the summer and the number one target for most people would be a top class striker. But getting the right player, no matter how much cash you splash, is not that easy. Just ask Chelsea and Liverpool who spent [.
Positives from the Bayern game by Big Gun Hi Gooners. I stayed up till midnight watching the Arsenal game as it was televised late in my country. Even though after the red card I knew it would be impossible to win, I stayed up and suffered with the team, hoping that by some miracle we [...]
What an unbelievable start by Arsenal. Arsene Wenger had surprised many by giving Yaya Sanogo just his second start. Along with a rampant Jack Wilshere and Oxlade-Chamberlain, the youngster inspired the Gunners and we really got Bayern on the back foot. When Ozil was fouled in the box in the 8th minute, the Emirates was [.
I don't know about you lot but I am really nervous about this one. Maybe I am being way too optimistic but for some reason I have a feeling that Arsenal can upset the odds and get a win over the Champions League holders Bayern Munich tonight. To be honest, I would be quite happy [...]
Arsene Wenger has identified one of the major reasons why Arsenal were knocked out of last season's Champions League by tonight's opponents Bayern Munich. Apart from the obvious things like them being a brilliant team that is. The Frenchman is known for worrying more about his own team's preparations than planning specifically for the opponents [.
Let's not kid ourselves Arsenal fans, Bayern Munich are strong favourites to retain their Champions League crown this season for good reason. They may be without Franck Ribery, Shaqiri and Badstuber but they have an awesome array of talent and the Gunners, as Per Mertesacker declared, will need to perform brilliantly and for things to [.
Get your thinking caps on and your crystal balls and tarot cards out Arsenal fans, because it is competition time again. Bayern Munich are the visitors to the Emirates tonight in what could well be the most difficult game of the season for the Gunners. Our road to progression in the Champions League is blocked [.
When Arsenal were drawn against Bayern Munich for the first knockout stage of the Champions League, it was no surprise to most of us. The Gunners have had the worst result in almost every draw we have been in so far this season, but these things happen and you just have to make the best [...]
Oxlade Chamberlain is the star of the show! by Ash Arsenal normally has at least one young Gun to light up the league with their performances over the course of the season and this year it is no different. Originally we thought it was Aaron Ramsey, almost a reborn player coming back from a long [...]
Arsenal seem to have been linked with the French striker Loic Remy forever and if the recent rumours are true, that looks set to continue, at least until the summer. Reports from Newcastle claim that, although his current club want to make his loan deal from QPR permanent in the summer, they fear they will [.
Arsenal vs Bayern Munich Preview, line up and predicted score by KJ Arsenal couldn't have asked for a tougher Champions League draw but I guess we put ourselves in this predicament when we failed to get a result against Napoli. But, we have beaten Bayern before and with a better team than last season, hopefully [.
How can Arsenal build from the Liverpool result? by Ash Without trying to go on about it too much, Arsenal managed to resurrect their ambition for silverware this season with a vengeful victory against Liverpool. The 2-1 result in Arsenal's favour didn't see a vital 3 points go to the Gunners but it did see [.
Arsene Wenger must be delighted to have some options up for for Arsenal, no disrespect to Nicklas Bendtner. An impressive debut from young French striker Yaya Sanogo in the FA cup win over Newcastle, as well as the well-publicised off-field problems of Giroud have made this a realistic question. Logic would tell you that a [.
This is the news we have all been waiting for Arsenal fans, along with the news that Abramovich is pulling his money out of Chelsea and Mourinho is taking a vow of silence. The Gunners' best player of the season so far, Aaron Ramsey, has been given good news on his thigh injury and should [...]
Guardiola recognises Arsenal's threat! by Ash Arsenal will tomorrow face probably the toughest opponents that we have come face to face with all season. The champions of Germany and the Champions of Europe, Bayern Munich, will be visiting the Emirates for a crunch Champions League clash for the first leg between the two.
There seems to be a tendency in the English media to ignore Arsenal's credentials and find all sorts of reasons to suggest that doom and despair is just around the corner. In a way I think it has helped the players and given them an extra incentive to prove people wrong, but it is nice [...]
It is time for the players to take responsibility by M.E.S. Since Jose Mourinho has come out and criticized the Arsenal manager, I have certainly been annoyed. Years ago I liked him, while in Spain he became a bit boring and now, after his attack on Wenger, I thoroughly dislike him. Being an Arsenal supporter [.
I don't know if you heard anything about it Arsenal fans, but the Gunners were linked with the Schalke and Germany international starlet Julian Draxler. There may have been a couple of small mentions of it in January. According to who you believe, Arsenal did not bid, offered too little or were scuppered by interest [.
Fabianski to face Bayern? by Twig After the Arsenal game against Liverpool and Fabianski's MOTM performance, many people remarked how very unlucky Fabianski was to be second choice. In most clubs Fabianski is good enough to be first choice, but the player unfortunately finds his chances limited by his fellow countryman who has been one [.
Flamini sees a resemblance within this Arsenal side! by Ash Arsenal may have gone almost 9 years without a trophy, and 10 since a Premier League title, but according to Mathieu Flamini, although the players may have changed, the mind-set is still the same as it was when he first joined the club at the [.
Per Mertesacker feeling on edge about Bayern? by Ash Arsenal and Germany international defender Per Mertesacker has shown the first signs of worrying ahead of Arsenal's first leg, last 16 Champions League tie against current holders Bayern Munich. Mertesacker has recognised the difficulty of the tie and has affectively warned the Gunners that unless two [.
I may be clutching at straws here but as Arsenal prepare to host Bayern Munich, the holders and favourites for this year's Champions League, anything that can help the Gunners' cause is extremely welcome. So it is good news that the Germans lost another key player to injury at the weekend, while quite a few [.
Hi Gooners. Great result for Arsenal over the weekend. It was so good to see Arsene Wenger change his tactics and play Liverpool against their weaknesses. Even with half of our side being reserves, we had enough pace, direction and stability to overcome a team that thrashed us not too long ago. Fabianski is no [.
Arsenal 2 v 1 Liverpool [FA Cup] Match Report Infographic by allArsenal.com The Gunners were perhaps fortunate to take the lead after two clear-cut chances for Liverpool in the opening quarter, however they controlled parts of the game and opted to invite Liverpool onto them, eventually coming out victors thanks to two well taken goals [.
If the Arsenal manager and players have been watching Bayern Munich games recently hoping to spot some kind of weakness in the German juggernaut, I hope they have had more luck than me. The holders of the Champions League have been in relentless form, but their captain has revealed that they see Arsenal as a [.
Arsenal 2 â€“ 1 Liverpool Player Ratings by KJ Fabianski â€“ 8.5 Brilliant game by him today. He was very commanding and made plenty of saves including some absolute brilliant ones. Only reason he doesn't get a higher rating is because he made a massive mistake late on when trying to claim a set piece [.
Just when we thought Jose Mourinho had mellowed. by Dan Hello Arsenal fans. Since returning to English football it appeared that the Portuguese one was picking his fights more wisely. Sir Alex Ferguson was apparently his long term friend who he was sad had gone, Brenden Rodgers and Steve Clarke his young prodigies while after [.
Why Sanogo's Arsenal debut was a positive by KJ This game against Liverpool was extremely important for Arsenal. We had lost badly against them a week earlier and it was an opportunity to progress to the next round of the FA cup, with many big teams already dropping out of it. Wenger gambled with his [.
For Arsenal Football Club, the fans and Arsene Wenger, the main thing that mattered yesterday was winning the game and progressing to the next round of the FA cup. But with a huge and difficult game against Bayern Munich coming up at the Emirates and what looks like being a title race that goes to [.
Arsene Wenger may well be the happiest and most pleased with himself person in London right now. The Arsenal fans who had me in stitches chanting behind the BT Sports commentary stand ran him a close second, but it is safe to say that today was a good day to be a Gunner. Wenger and [...]
When I saw the Arsenal team sheet today, I thought that it would either make Arsene Wenger look like a master tactician or make the Arsenal fans furious for giving up on the FA cup. Sanogo given his debut, Monreal and Jenkinson starting and Fabianski in goal against the same team that battered us just [.
Right Arsenal, beat Liverpool today and not only is the season firmly back on track and the disappointing defeat at Anfield almost forgotten, but the road to Wembley and an FA cup trophy opens up before us. Maybe just as important is a good, strong and competitive performance from the Gunners with a long and [.

All you need to do is post your [.
It seems as if the contract talks between Arsenal and Bacary Sagna, not to mention all the rumours and speculation about his future, have been going on forever. With his contract due to expire at the end of the season, it is still not sorted, but it is looking a lot closer. One of the [...]
After Arsenal Football Club released the latest financial figures yesterday, the fans are now fully aware just how well the Gunners are doing commercially. And these figures were for the year ending November 2013 and should get even better with the Puma deal and other new revenue streams. I won't bore you with the figures, [.
Between now and next Saturday at 5 o'clock, Arsenal have three massive games that could decide the course of the season. Next Saturday's Premier League game against a rejuvenated Sunderland side is a must win if the Gunners are going to stay in the title race. Before that comes the small matter of German powerhouses [.
Arsenal vs Liverpool Preview, line up and predicted score by KJ This is going to be a very difficult game for Arsenal and comes only a week after losing 5-1 to them at Anfield. They absolutely tore apart our team and we will most likely field a weakened one today as Wenger keeps one eye [...]
There have been no direct quotes from Arsene Wenger or any of the Arsenal players, yet all the football journalists have been reporting for the last few days that the manager is set to field a weakened Arsenal team today. Apparently Wenger wants to rest a few key players who have been looking a bit [.
First off I would like to say that I have been really impressed with what Arsene Wenger has managed to do with the Arsenal team this season, so far that is. But that early promise is in danger of being wiped out and the fans are fearing that another year will go by without anything [...]
There were so many disappointing things about the Arsenal performance against Liverpool at Anfield last week. The was we started, defended, passed, attacked, tackled and many more were so poor it was unbelievable and the Gunners got what they deserved. That should have set alarm bells ringing, though, and we were much better against Man [.
If you ask most Arsenal fans and people working in football which of the three competitions that Arsenal are still in offers the best chance of a piece of silverware to finally stop the media and fans of rival clubs banging on about the trophy drought, I think the outcome would be overwhelmingly the FA [.
The Arsenal manager has already got himself embroiled in a bit of a war of words with Jose Mourinho after the Chelsea boss reacted angrily to Wenger's suggestion that Mourinho was afraid to fail. Some fans think that Wenger should not get into it with Mourinho, but I disagree. The Frenchman can handle him and [.
Tomorrow's FA cup clash between Arsenal and Liverpool is a massive one for various reasons. The recent trip to Anfield is just one of them, but it has got all the media talking about the game even more than usual. Liverpool have definitely been in good form recently, but then they struggled against Fulham so [.
There was a point some years back when Arsene Wenger was getting grief from the English media about Arsenal being made up of too many foreign players. The Frenchman has always insisted that he signs and plays players purely on merit and how they fit into his system and these days it is clear that [..
The real reasons Mourinho is so angry By AondoaverK Jose Mourinho's media statements in response to the Arsenal manager's opinions on why the top coaches do not want to be considered title favourites did not come as a surprise. What is surprising is the sheer anger and outright disrespect that they contained.
Why our midfielders are not performing by Big Gun Hi Gooners. Arsenal has been extremely lacklustre in the last couple of games. Our strikers and most especially our midfielders are under fire, particularly Jack Wilshere, Mikel Arteta and Mesut Ozil. We have, without a doubt, the best midfield in the BPL, so then why are [.
We all know that Jose Mourinho likes a mind game or three. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger really locked horns with the Portuguese coach the first time he was the Chelsea manager and he probably got under Wenger's skin more than the other way then. They have been reasonably civil with each other this time around, [.
The revolving door in the Arsenal dressing room continues to spin round as it has done all season. Just when you think that the Gunners team is going to be boosted with the return of a player, they get injured again or someone else drops out. True to form, Arsene Wenger has been hit with [...]
Hi Gooners. Arsenal never really looked threatening last night at all. Again, it took us most of the first half to get stuck in. As the commentator described, it was an edgy performance to say the least. Too many broken passes and mistakes. No penetration whatsoever. We lacked pace and a nose for goal.
There are quite a few big questions hanging over Arsenal at the minute. After a general dwindling of perfvormance levels culminated in the disaster away to Liverpool, a season that was looking so promising suddenly looks in danger of imploding and finishing with the Gunners empty handed yet again. There are concerns over the ability [.
We lost 2 valuable points against the worst Manchester United team in 23 years by Simba It's really unfortunate that some Arsenal fans see the 0 â€“ 0 draw against Man Utd as a point won instead of 2 points lost. Of course we were up against a very prestigious team with a quality line-up [...]
Whatever you think about why Arsenal seemed to accept a point at home to Manchester United on Wednesday, it does mean that the Gunners did not lose two football matches in a row for just the second time this season. The previous time was against Napoli and Man City and we followed those games up [...
Blame Wenger not Players by Ronny331 I think that Arsenal fans' frustration must be shown towards Arsene Wenger and not the players. I'm getting tired of reading the criticism against our players. Every week it's Giroud, now Wilshire and Arteta. I do admit during some games I get angry, upset, emotional and often vent at [.
Cheer up Arsenal fans! by Sam P Arsenal fans have been going through a tough time recently. There was another disappointing transfer window which ended with the Kim Kallstrom farce. There was the pain and embarrassment of getting a football lesson from Liverpool at Anfield, followed by an uninspiring draw against Man United.
I am one of the Arsenal fans who has defended the contribution and ability of our main centre forward, Olivier Giroud, both last season and this one. And at times the big Frenchman has proved me right, especially at the start of the season when he looked like he would easily cruise to over 20 [...]
Last night was another disappointing game for Arsenal against Manchester United. The draw also provided more ammunition for the many doubters who point to the Gunners' poor recent results against the other big teams as proof that the Premier League title is out of Arsenal's reach. But is that really true?
Arsenal 0 v 0 Man United Match Report Infographic by allArsenal.com Arsenal missed the chance to reclaim top spot last night after a draw at home to Manchester United. Both teams seeming a little hesitant at times, their fear of losing overpowering their desire to win. The Gunners can be thankful that Van Persie didn't [.
What Arsenal need at this point of time is a big match player. Someone who can single-handedly keep you in a game. Okay why am I saying this at this point of time? To take some pressure off Ozil? Maybe. We keep blaming him for his disappearance in big games right? Okay now lets talk [...]
Is Le Coq's time up at Arsenal? by Ash With Frimpong's disappearance within the Arsenal team soon turning into his exit from the Emirates, some believe that another young central defensive midfielder could also soon be following in his footsteps. Young Frenchman Francis Coquelin may not have taken the zero to hero route yet, but [.
First of all, I am as frustrated and disappointed as anyone that Arsenal didn't beat Manchester United, possibly more so because I had money on them to win. Never mind the points and the title race, we were all desperate to take advantage of United's woes and get a long awaited victory over them. But [.
Arsenal 0 â€“ 0 Manchester United Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny â€“ 8 Did very well today with some quality saves and some very good distribution. Kept us in the game when RVP's header was tipped onto the bar. Sagna â€“ 8 He was defensively very good today and kept Mata very quiet. Also created [...]
Adam Kemp â€“ Feeble Arsenal are still poor when it truly matters! It's fair to say that Arsenal fans are indecisive when it comes to analysing our season so far. Logic would dictate that Arsenal are doing extremely well as they are second in the Premier League by a mere point, still in the FA [...]
After Arsenal and Manchester United both suffered poor performances and bad results at the weekend, it is perhaps no surprise that there some nerves on show. But apart from Arteta being caught on the ball in the first couple of minutes, Arsenal started better than on Saturday. Szczesny denied van Persie to save the Spaniards [.
Well here we go Arsenal fans. Tonight's game at the Emirates against Manchester United is a must win one for both teams after the weekend's disappointments. Arsene Wenger is backing his players who have done so well already this season, but the Frenchman has made a couple of changes to the side that collapsed so [.
After Arsenal slumped to a shocking defeat at the weekend, many football pundits and Arsenal fans have been calling for, or expecting, Arsene Wenger to make some sweeping changes to his starting line-up for tonight's huge game. Manchester United are the visitors to the Emirates and it is safe to say that both teams are [.
The case for Chamberlain to become a striker by Twig Which was Arsenal's most irresistible attacking display last season? That is probably subject to varying opinions, but I'm sure most of us would have the 7-3 drubbing of Newcastle as top of the pile. How about our best attacking display this season?
It is that time again Arsenal fans. The Gunners have an absolutely massive game at the Emirates tonight against thye hated Manchester United. It is no exaggeration to say that this game could shape the rest of the season. Play badly again and lose, and Arsenal might not recover from it, at least not before [.
I believe winning and losing is as much about mind-set and collective mentality as it is about raw ability, and not withstanding my efforts at a rallying call in my Just Arsenal post recently(I stand by what I said), if the last transfer window was a missed opportunity is was the chance to add to [..
Arsene Wenger My Issues by M.K. I hate to be writing this in reaction to the Arsenal defeat against Liverpool, but once again it just seems as if we haven't learnt from our many mistakes. I have the upmost respect for Arsene Wenger and the work he's done revolutionising the club during his time [...]
Predictable Arsenal? by J.T. If it wasn't already apparent by now, Arsene Wenger loves midfielders. More importantly he loves attacking midfielders. So when the opportunity for Arsenal to sign Mesut Ozil came up in the summer it was one that he thought he could not pass by. After the departure of Robin van Persie who [.
Arsenal vs Manchester United Preview, Line up and predicted score by KJ This is easily the biggest test of the season so far for Arsenal. We have been knocked off the top of the league aafter that terribly disappointing thrashing by Liverpool. Our players will be low on morale and now have to face a [.
Does Ozil deserve to keep his place in the Arsenal side? by Ash In Arsenal's previous game against Liverpool, I'm pretty sure that what Mesut Ozil is most remembered for is tripping over the ball rather than any actual football ability and although it has been necessarily wiped, it's not the only poor show from [.
The key to Arsenal beating Manchester United at the Emirates tomorrow and getting the title challenge firmly back on track is probably not going to be tactics, team selection or formations. For me, the major thing that the Gunners need is for the players to go out there with the right attitude and put a [.
Nobody is trying to claim that Arsenal were anything other than abysmal against Liverpool on Saturday, but some journalists and pundits have grabbed onto the game with both hands and used it to back up what they have been saying about the Gunners all season. And the same goes for Mesut Ozil, whose contribution at [.
Is a re shuffle needed? by M.E.S. Last year before Arsenal stunned everyone by winning the Bayern game, Wenger dropped Vermaelen and Szczesny which seemed to wake up the team and made them have a good run. This year there have been games which I just don't understand what is happening. I feel the Southampton [.
Same sh*t different team by Big Gun Saturday was supposed to be an amazing day for me; not only because my son turned 2 years old, but that Arsenal would take 3 points away from Liverpool. Unfortunately, it was a day I want to forget as quickly as possible. I wrote an article a few [...]
Arteta slams Arsenal performance! by Ash Arsenal managed to cause an upset rather than Liverpool this weekend, with the Gunners' performance leaving the team in tatters both on and off the pitch. Arsenal went down with little respect having been beating 5-1 at Anfield by Liverpool, but it is what happened both at half time [.
This season we have had to get used to being told, over and over again, that Arsenal were not good enough to win the Premier League. There have been all sorts of reasons given by all sorts of football pundits and journalists but, until the Gunners failed to turn up to Anfield on Saturday, all [...]
3 reasons why Rosicky should start ahead of Ozil against Manchester United by Simba Arsenal have entered into the tough run of fixtures from February 8th to March 29th; from the embarrassing 5 1 loss to Liverpool on Saturday to Wednesday's game against Manchester United at home, Liverpool again at home, first leg of [.
After Arsenal spectacularly came apart against Liverpool on Saturday, a lot of fans feel that our title challenge is looking pretty dicey. Even though the Gunners are still just one point behind league leaders Chelsea, the game at Anfield has really knocked our confidence. And with tough games coming up in order to stay in [.
It is probably hard for Arsenal fans to get too excited about bold statements and promises from the Arsenal players at the minute. That is what we got plenty of in the build up to our dismal drubbing by Liverpool and it was shown up as so much hot air on the pitch. What the [...]
Why are Arsenal struggling against the big teams away from home? by KJ Arsenal suffered their fourth defeat of the Premier league season at Anfield at the weekend and three of the four losses were away from home. Those three were Manchester United, Manchester City and of course Liverpool. It looks like a pattern is [.
It has been a difficult few days for Arsenal fans. Following on from having our arses handed to us by Suarez, Sturridge and co at Anfield, it is very hard to muster up confidence and belief that the Gunners will keep defying the odds and finally regain the Premier League crown we last won 10 [...]
Arsenal must learn from United or else. As talk of a new Arsenal contract for Arsene Wenger has begun to emerge, there is a sense of inevitability in Wenger continuing his long stay at the club. Good news. However, if reports are to be believed, this time Wenger won't be signing a 5 year deal. [...]
Arsene Wenger has got a massive few days ahead of him. The Arsenal boss is well aware that another poor performance against Manchester United on Wednesday could all but end his hopes of regaining the Premier League title. He has already suggested that he was just as much to blame for the awful show at [.
Like most Arsenal fans, the former Gunner working as a pundit for our dismal drubbing away to Liverpool, David O'Leary, felt Arsenal's title hopes fading away as goal after goal went in at Anfield. And the former defender pulled no punches in his assessment of where that defeat leaves the Gunners. It is hard to [.
Arsenal first-halves are a major problem by Gooneristic Truth Is this an I-told-you-so moment or what? For many fans and pundits who have questioned Arsenal's strength and depth only to be drowned and silenced by aggressive murmurs of disapproval and clicks of â€˜dislike', the Anfield shellacking feels like that long-awaited moment of vindication!
Calm down and keep the Faith by Sam P I really cannot believe what I read from some Arsenal fans on this site sometimes. One bad game and all of a sudden it is, `Wenger out`, `Arsenal are rubbish`, `Ozil is a donkey` and much, much more. Some of the invective leveled at our long [...]
Why fans need to remain calm by KJ I was extremely disappointed with the Arsenal result yesterday but what hurt me the most was the performance. The players seemed to start off cocky, knowing they had beaten Liverpool previously this season with such ease and then once we conceded, we thought we could immediately hit [.
After Arsenal put in their worst performance for a long, long time, the last game you would normally want next is against Manchester United. But this season has seen a different Arsenal as well as a different United. So actually, it could be the perfect game, as long as the Gunners up their game, of [.
It is quite often the case that Arsenal fans are fuming, disappointed and looking for answers after a poor performance or result. Often, however, the explanation given by the manager leaves the fans even more cheesed off. As yesterday's disaster progressed, many fans were wondering what sort of excuse Arsene Wenger would come out with [.
Liverpool 5 v 1 Arsenal Match Report Infographic by allarsenal.com A 20 minutes to forget for the Gunners compounded in a gut-wrenching 5-1 romp by Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool side. The Gunners passing was way off when it mattered, while the lack of enthusiasm was frustrating especially considering the strength of the side that played at [.
I am one of the Arsenal fans that have been defending Mesut Ozil recently. The German's influence on games may have dropped off since his brilliant start, but I still thought that his vision and passing ability was helping the players around him. Yesterday at Anfield, however, Ozil was nothing short of a liability.
A February to forget for Arsenal? by Twig By way of summary, in this February Arsenal have a nightmarish fixture list that has us play Liverpool twice (lost the first of the two games today), perennial "superiors" United, and then host UCL champions Bayern Munich in the first leg of our tie. Luckily for us, [.
Arsenal fans everywhere are still in a stunned and painful daze after a 5-1 battering away to Liverpool. It is always hard to take a defeat, but what makes this one even worse was the way in which it happened. Arsenal put on the sort of show that you would expect from a team struggling [...]
What Could Kallstrom Add for Arsenal? by Queefy Gunner Following the heavy defeat to a feisty Liverpool side, Arsenal are left wondering what could have been had the game started out differently. Wasting no time, the Reds marched on and taught the Gunners a lesson, slotting in four goals before halftime.
Sorry Wenger, Arsenal Are Not Barcelona by S.S. Last time I wrote was last year after the Arsenal v Bayern 3-1 home defeat and since the start of the season, I'd always keep my mouth shut in conversations so as not to jinx the run we're having, even after the Man City game. But today, [...]
Repercussions of Our Transfer Failures by Uche Liverpool 4 0 Arsenal. That is the score line as I write this blog and Liverpool are absolutely destroying us at their home. I don't even know where to begin. I don't want to watch this game anymore but since I am bent on blogging about it, [...]
Liverpool 5 â€“ 1 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny â€“ 6 Even after conceding 6 goals, I can't really fault him for his performance. He couldn't do anything for their goals really. Could've been better for their first but that's it. Sagna â€“ 3 Terrible performance by him. Completely torn apart by Sterling.
Arsenal knew they were in for a tough game with a visit to Anfield, but with Liverpool's injury problems leaving them with a makeshift back four, confidence was fairly high that the Gunners could control the game, punish their defence and get the vital win. Until we started to play that is, because it was [.
Arsenal have been getting a lot less credit than they deserve since the start of the season and it has been the case from all sections of the media, but Michael Owen seems to have been on a one man campaign to disrespect everything Arsenal and wind up the fans as much as possible. From [...]
Liverpool vs Arsenal Preview, Line up and predicted score by KJ This is the start of the business end of the season for Arsenal in my opinion. We need to pick up maximum points this month to ensure we have a fighting chance going into the gruelling March fixture list. Liverpool at Anfield has been [.
Earlier this week I was suffering from real doubts about Arsenal and their trip to the northwest to face Liverpool tomorrow. Maybe it is because the constantly negative appraisal of the Gunners from the media has finally started to seep in and get to me, or maybe it is because Liverpool thrashed local rivals Everton [.
You might think that Wojciech Szczesny would want to remember some of his past experiences against Liverpool, because they have been pretty good and are surely good for the young man's confidence levels. Even this season, the Gunners are the only team to stop Suarez and Sturridge from scoring when they have started a league [.
With Arsenal beginning a tough run of fixtures with a tricky looking trip to Anfield to face an in-form Liverpool, Arsene Wenger will have been glad that his Gunners team are not the only one to be depleted by injuries. And his preparation for the game will have been helped by being easily able to [.
Will Fabianksi be leaving Arsenal in the summer? As I'm sure many of you are aware, Arsenal are currently going through the contract situations at the club at the moment and so far according to reports, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, captain (practically) without the armband Per Mertesacker and Tomas Rosicky have all verbally agreed new [.
As soon as Arsenal were knocked back into second place in their Champions League `group of death`, with a bizarre goalkeeping calamity from Marseille giving Dortmund an undeserved win in the last game, Gooners everywhere were fearing the worst, and we duly got it in last year's winners and the favourites for this year, Bayern [.
Any little crumb of good luck that Arsenal get this season is extremely welcome, because it will be more than balanced out by the mountain of bad luck that Arsene Wenger and the players have had to deal with. But, whereas injuries have caused us nothing but trouble this season, tomorrow's game might actually be [.
Hello Arsenal fans. It's competition time again, with Just Arsenal offering you lucky Gooners the chance to win one of our exclusively designed T-shirts, which will be sent out to whichever corner of the world, or London, you happen to hail from.

What are Liverpool's weaknesses? by KJ It's still a couple of days away but there's a massive game coming up on Saturday and Arsenal will need to start a winning run against some of the bigger teams for the next 6 weeks if we are to stay in the title race. But the same was [...]
Advantage to Arsenal by H.A. I know that we Arsenal fans are all very worried about a tough month ahead. So I have done a bit of analysis and am now slightly less worried. The doom merchants in the media have been looking for a reason to write off Arsenal all season but none of [...]
Despite the fact that Arsenal fans have their own song for the big French striker and the fact that the football media is full of praise for him and think he is one of the key players that have helped the Gunners get to the top of the table and stay there this season, some [...]
There is a lot of nervousness among Arsenal fans at the minute. Hardly surprising really, with pundits like Michael Owen and Jamie Redknapp constantly predicting doom, disaster and a sudden slide down the Premier League. Tough fixtures are coming, they say, and how will Arsenal's weakling squad devoid of talent possibly cope with this?
Gibbs gives an insight ahead of Arsenal trip to Liverpool by Ash Having returned to winning ways by achieving all three points against Crystal Palace last weekend, Arsenal now begin their tough run across three competitions that will see the Gunners face some of the best teams in Europe, one of those more than once, [.
For Arsenal fans, Cesc Fabregas is a rarity. Despite him leaving the Gunners against all of our wishes and leaving Arsene Wenger with a real problem replacing him, the Spanish international is not seen along with the likes of van Persie, Nasri, Adebayor and other former Gunners who we would cheerfully watch being set upon [.
Arsene Wenger is well aware that Luis Suarez is not a bad little player, having tried and failed to bring him to Arsenal in the summer. And he has been speaking about the controversial Uruguayan striker in the build up to the Gunners' trip to face Liverpool on Saturday afternoon. In the interview, reported by [.
The return of the unwanted rivals? by Ash Although the transfer window has shut down permanently for this season and will not re-open again until a few weeks after Arsenal have potentially had their celebratory Premier League winners' open bus parade, but the transfer speculation is already in full swing.
I know that the transfer window is closed and does not open again, officially, until the beginning of July. But there are still little bits of information going around, whether about what happened in January or what might happen in the future, so I thought that these three snippets are worth knowing about.
Do Arsenal have the best central defence in the Premier League? by Ash Arsenal have come under a lot of criticism in recent years about the team's defensive qualities as well as the defence itself. It has arguably never been completely stable since the glory days almost 10 years ago, with the likes of Kolo [.
False 9, Ox, Kallstrom and other Arsenal stuff by J.A. Hey Arsenal fans, been quite a while since I last wrote around these parts. Hope you're fine.

Arsenal last won the competition ten [.
There is a lot of speculation and discussion at the minute about who is the favourite to win the Premier League title. Arsenal are still being largely ignored by the media, despite still being in top spot and having been there for the vast majority of the season so far. Chelsea's victory over Man City [.
Mertesacker ready for the challenge ahead! by Ash Per Mertesacker has been a revelation for Arsenal on the pitch this season and has arguably become the club's best central defender of the season ahead of Laurent Koscielny and certainly Thomas Vermaelen. And if Arsenal are to achieve some silverware this season, our BFG is going [.
What with injuries and the suspension of Mathieu Flamini, the Arsenal team almost picks itself at the minute. But that does not mean that Arsene Wenger will be taking a week off to catch up with the box sets of The Wire or Breaking Bad, because he still has at least one big decision to [...]
City fearful of Arsenal's position? by Ash In recent years, Arsenal has been subject to much criticism about how the Gunners fear their opponents too much or in some regards give them too much respect. And although I don't always necessarily agree with this, because in some cases it is true, a pure example being [.
You would think that the speculation and rumours about possible Arsenal transfers would die down a bit now the January transfer window is closed, but there are still plenty doing the rounds of the papers and websites. I haven't been paying too much attention to be honest, but one really caught my eye and as [.
Gunners Legend hopes Suarez doesn't come back to haunt Arsenal! by Ash As the Premier League season approaches the point where Arsenal have well passed the halfway mark and are very much nearing the final third of the season, things become a little clearer on who's looking likely to win the Premier League or at [.
It is a good time for Arsenal to play Man Utd by Rabiul It is nice to see Arsenal back on Top of the League where we belong. But make no mistake, there is still a long way to go and the fixture list is very tough for rest of February and March. So Arsenal [...]
Lack of transfer activity may cost Arsenal a great chance to win the title. by KM Hi Arsenal fans. Just a quick note on the City v Chelsea game. Mourinho again showed why he is such a master tactician, especially in the big games. He studied City's game, made an antidote and went on to [...]
The truth comes out about Draxler? by Ash Although the transfer window has now passed for the season and will not re-open until the summer, by which time Arsenal will have hopefully won the Premier League or if we are lucky even potentially secured a double, one Arsenal transfer target has revealed exactly what seems [.
Arsenal expects more from the Ox and so does he! by Ash If you weren't aware already, having been in a sensory deprivation chamber or lost in the desert, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain played a stunning role in the central of midfield for Arsenal in their 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon. The Gunners [.
Arsenal vs Bayern match already heating up! by Ash The next round of the Champions League may not still be until a few weeks time, however the pre-match talk has already begun and Arsenal aren't being ruled out as much as they were last year. Admittedly the Gunners have improved immensely since the visit by [.
A lot is riding on the Arsenal defence keeping up their brilliant performances for the rest of the season, especially as we head into a particularly tricky and important few weeks. Crucial games in the Premier League, FA cup and Champions League are likely to put that defence to a big test, but there are [.
As an Arsenal fan it feels wrong and a little bit weird to be wanting Chelsea to win, just like last week with Tottenham. But needs must and so the Gunners faithful tonight will have been hoping for a Chelsea win or a draw between them and Manchester City. They got a 1-0 win, so [...]
Arsene Wenger has conducted himself this season with a calmness and dignity that has not always been so evident, especially when Arsenal have been up against it, like this time last year when Wenger was getting increasingly narky with reporters. And with Alex Ferguson gone from Manchester United and Wenger and Mourinho declaring that their [.
If Arsenal are going to win the Premier League title, or any trophy for that matter, a large part of the reason will be our excellent new defensive strength. The whole back four, keeper Wojciech Szczesny and even the players in front of the defenders, Flamini, Arteta, Ramsey and Wilshere, sdeem to be much better [.
Non Supporters please sit down by Gunner Gyzinermouth I can be a fickle Arsenal supporter at times. I was here ranting with the rest of you prior to our purchase of Ozil and it was me who stated, if the club does nothing, so shall we. I even ignored our football team until some investment [...]
Arsene Wenger takes his Arsenal team to Anfield to face Liverpool in Saturday's early kick-off. It is the first in a run of four games that could have a massive say on whether the Gunners have a successful season or another disappointing one. So it is really important to get off to a decent start [..
An open letter to some `chicken` Gooners by Simba I'd like to begin this letter by expressing my total disgust to the reactions of my fellow Arsenal fans on this site and on Twitter since the last day of the Transfer Window. We all are entitled to our own opinion anyways. Honestly, it'll sound so [..
Why people who criticise Ã–zil don't understand football! by KJ Arsene Wenger managed to pull off one of the greatest transfer coups during the Premier league era when he signed Mesut Ã–zil for Â£42.5 million from Real Madrid. It even eclipsed the signing of Bergkamp, that's how monumental it was. We signed the best number [.
It has got to be one of the worst and most embarrassing bits of transfer business that Arsenal Football Club have accomplished in a long time. And that is saying something because there are some strong candidates, like Sebastien `the squid` Squillaci. But signing a player as an emergency measure to cover for injuries and [.
There is a rumour going around, and it is just a rumour for now, that the former Arsenal striker Robin van Persie is seriously cheesed off with his new team Manchester United and could be set for a shock return to the Gunners. I am not going to go into the whys, wherefores and whether [...]
Arsenal fans all expected the team tom win against Crystal Palace, which they duly did, in spite of Tony Pulis having his rejuvenated Crystal Palace side set out to frustrate us and play fore a draw. I, for one, was really impressed with the patience and determination that the Gunners showed. But now comes the [.
Can Wenger take Arsenal back to glory days? by Uche Fellow Arsenal fans, this seems like a really weird question because it is generally believed that Arsene Wenger is the best thing that happened to Arsenal and that just may be true.

Arsenal 2 â€“ 0 Crystal Palace Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny â€“ 8 He had quite a bit to do in terms of saving shots as Palace managed to always muster an attack when they had the ball. One was notably better than the rest as he saved the header by Cameron Jerome. Sagna â€“ [...]
Arsenal 2 0 Crystal Palace Match Report Infographic by allarsenal.com Arsenal returned to the top of the table thanks to two superb Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain goals against Crystal Palace mand the young Englishman is certainly making a case to be deployed centrally more often. The stocky English international worked hard and troubled Palace's backline with [.
Arsenal fans have worried all season that the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea will be just too strong for the Gunners over the course of the season. It may still turn out to be true, but Arsene Wenger seems to think that a close knit unit of talented players is better than an expensively [...]
Arsenal had a little bit of an injury crisis going into this home game against Tony Pulis' Crystal Palace. With Ramsey, Wilshere and Flamini unavailable, Arsene Wenger gave Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain the chance to show what he can do in the position that the bos thinks will end up being where he plays as his career [.
Although this may not be a big game in the normal sense of the word, it is, for me, in that Arsenal have to get back to winning ways to keep the pressure on Man City and Chelsea. Also, the in jury situation and the transfer window has put a bit of negative spin non [...]
Arsenal vs Crystal Palace Match Preview by Ash Thankfully, after the transfer window goings on(or lack of them), Arsenal fans have a game to watch against Crystal Palce.

My season prediction City will be hard to catch! by Gooneristic Truth It is no secret that the next three months will be the most important in our season at Arsenal. Thus far, we have not quite convinced pundits, critics and some fans enough about our title credentials. We are at that point in [...]
Arsene Wenger is obviously aware that there is a groundswell of disappointment and frustration among the Arsenal fans. Hardly surprising, really, when the manager managed to splash out a grand total of zero English pounds to strengthen the Gunners squad for the tough run-in that could see us either become champions of England or extend [.
There has been a lot of anger and frustration in the ranks of the Arsenal fans for the last couple of days.
