I was just sat watching the spuds get roasted, and I am not talkng about Sunday dinner here, when the commentator uttered a phrase that may have got some Arsenal fans in a bit of a lather. It went along the lines of, Everton will join Liverpool in having a great season by qualifying for [...]
It's all in the mind Arsenal by T.B. Sometimes you have to take your hat off and say well done everybody! Ok, Arsenal didn't discover a cure for cancer or create a better world or scale Everest but we played our guts out to get a point against the most expensively gathered side in the [...]
It sounds to me as if Arsenal are firmly in the driving seat when it comes to Arsene Wenger and his future as manager of the club. The Frenchman has basically said that he will not walk away from the club, which means that if Arsenal want him to stay and offer him a new [...]
Arsenal 1 v 1 Manchester City Match Report Infographic by allArsenal.com Arsenal finish the season unbeaten at home against the likes of Man City, United, Spuds, Chelsea and Everton but it took plenty of graft against a high tempo City side on Saturday. Falling behind for their third consecutive game, the Gunners worked hard to [.
They say that luck evens itself out over the course of a season. If that is true, Arsenal are due to win the lottery in the next few weeks, because nothing else has gone the way of the Gunners this year. I know that lots of Gooners will berate me for going on about this [...]
I saw an article the other day that suggested that the Arsenal players never really believed that they could win the Premier League title this season. I am not too sure about that, but it has been a long time since we won anything and winning is a habit. It certainly seemed that the Gunners [...]
Arsenal fans love Santiago Cazorla, with good reason, but not many would disagree that the tricky Spaniard has not had nearly as good a second season as he did last year. An early injury did not help and the arrival of Mesut Ozil meant that he has not played in the same central role as [...]
Unless the likes of Lothar Matthaus and Jan Aage Fjortoft have been the victim of an early April's fool day prank, Arsenal have got themselves a new striker for next season already. The capture of 21-year old Josip Drmic was revealed on social media sites by the two former players who are working in Germany [.
I could not believe the amount of support that Arsenal fans gave to Paul Scholes after the former Manchester United and England midfielder laid into the Gunners this week. It was an unprovoked and savage assault on the club, players and manager and lots of you said he was right. Well I wonder if those [.
Arsenal 1 â€“ 1 Manchester City Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny â€“ 7 He was decent today and claimed the ball most of the time but was still shaky with a few of his saves/parries. Sagna â€“ 8.5 A great performance by him today. He was solid on the right hand side all game and [...]
People have questioned whether Arsenal are lacking in character, leadership and mental strength. You can't really blame them, I suppose, after Chelsea inflicted a third heavy Premier League defeat on the Gunners. But Paul Scholes' ill-informed attack was shown to be as bad as his punditry skills by the fight that Arsenal showed today.
It is hard for Arsenal fans to get very excited about this game, which a few weeks ago looked like being a major fixture in the Premier League title race. It still is I suppose, but only for the team from Manchester. The truth is though, if the Gunners can somehow drag a decent performance [...]
Arsenal may need to hand out photos to all the stewards and some of the players ahead of training on Tuesday, other wise Abou Diaby could be thrown off the site. The tall Frenchman has been away from a football pitch for so long that people could be forgiven for forgetting what he looks like. [...]
Hold on, wait a minute, Arsenal can still win title! For the first time in god knows how long, Arsenal are only 6 points off the top of the Premier League with a handful of games left! This opportunity may not come around again if we do not spend whilst the others are spending big [...]
Only one Arsenal midfielder, Santi Cazorla, has started and played in more games than club record signing Mesut Ozil this season. That gives a clear indication of how much Arsene Wenger has relied on the German international this season but also suggests a reason why his form has tailed off so much after a great [.
Arsenal vs Manchester City Preview, Line up and Predicted score by KJ Arsenal's season has somewhat fallen apart, in the Premier league especially. We are 5 points off Liverpool and 6 points off Chelsea. Even if we manage to beat Manchester City, providing they win their games in hand, they will also be 6 points [.
Why Arteta will need to be replaced by KJ I've been a massive Mikel Arteta fan since he signed for Arsenal back in 2011. In his first season, he offered a good balance of defending and attacking whilst being able to dictate the play as the lynchpin in midfield. With the departure of Song, he [...]
Is the City game already lost? by Twig There is probably not a worse time for Arsenal to be facing Manchester City than this weekend. Unlike last season where our exploits against Bayern Munich were to be the catalyst for our strong finish to the season, this season the reverse has been the case and [.
Stop blaming injuries! by Big Gun Every season we have the same misfortunes and somehow or the other we find every single excuse to try and avoid the following obvious fact. Every single club in the world has to deal with injuries. Some fans make it sound like it is only Arsenal that has to [...]
There is little doubt that Arsenal are not really expected to beat Manchester City tomorrow, with Arsenal around 3/1 to take the points and City around even money. For a home game at the Emirates, that just shows you how far we ghave fallen since heading the Premier League for most of the season. And [.
I don't know about the rest of you Arsenal fans, but I am not exactly looking forward to the game this weekend. Man City are looking in worryingly good form since they went out of the Champions League to Barcelona a couple of weeks ago, while the opposite could easily be said of the Gunners. [...]
This is the chance that the Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen has been waiting for since he lost his place at the back ahead of last season's trip to face Bayern Munich. And it has come at just the right time for Vermelen to force his way into the starting XI for the Begium national team [...]
Giroud won't be on his way out according to agent! by Ash Over the past week reports have suggested that after Arsenal's demolition day at Stamford Bridge, in which we lost 6-0 to Chelsea, Giroud was consequently heading for the transfer list. The big Frenchman was blamed for his tame effort in the early stages [.
Former Gunner tells Wilshere to leave the Gunners! by Ash It's never a positive message when one of your former Arsenal players comes out to criticise the club because, nine times out of ten, it causes controversy in the media. Sometimes they have a point and on occasion it has turned out the outburst has [.
Wenger's future â€“ D-day approaches Arsenal's familiar end-of-season capitulation means the focus has switched from a possible title challenge to boss Arsene Wenger's future, with the Frenchman yet to sign a new contract. Wenger intimated just last month that he would be prepared to commit himself to a fresh deal at the Emirates but it [.
Arsenal fans need to remain patient on Ramsey return by Ash On a week that has been pretty disappointing so far for the Gunners, with a humiliating 6-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea, and then another poor performance on Tuesday, this time against Swansea City in the league, Arsenal will be hoping that the [.
Arsenal fans are well used to suffering, both during the football season and once it is over and the transfer window opens. But I am not sure how much more we can take. After this season has turned from delight to despair, Arsene Wenger needs to move quickly in order to get the fans back [...]
Arsenal fans can debate all day about whether this season has been a shocking failure or the closest the Gunners have come to winning the title for many years. And we all have our own theories about what positions need strengthening and who Arsene Wenger should be targeting in the summer transfer market, but I [.
Arsenal have been told, in no uncertain terms, that they will have to face yet another of their former players next season, unless they open the wallet, release the moths, and give Bacary Sagna the contract he is after. Any hope that Arsene Wenger and the fans might have had that our French international defender [.
Kallstrom could be our man! by Ash Kim Kallstrom has been hailed as one of the greatest transfer disappointments to ever occur under the reign of Arsene Wenger's managerial career at Arsenal. He was judged before he even played for us and although thinking about it now, it's really quite sad that Kallstrom could be [.
There is no doubt that Arsenal fans have a strange sort of relationship with our French striker Olivier Giroud. Some people seem to want to lay the fault of all Arsenal's problems at his size 12 feet, but however much of a bad game he has, I just cannot agree with them. I am one [...]
Amidst all the disappointment of Arsenal conceding a last minute own goal against Swansea that saw a hugely promising season finally turn back into the usual struggle to get into the Champions League, there was a glaring positive which did not get the attention it deserved, namely the debut of Kim Kallstrom.
I don't think that he was specifically talking about Arsenal or aiming his words at Arsene Wenger, but as Manuel Pellegrini gave his post match interview after his Man City side completed the double over United and put themselves firmly in the driving seat in the race for the Premier League title, he might as [.
Wilshere hasn't improved at Arsenal since he was 17 claims midfield legend! by Ash Former England midfielder Paul Scholes may not be a legend for Arsenal but he is certainly renowned as a Manchester United and England great and arguably one of the best midfielders of his time. Although there are a lot of negative [.
Arsenal got a right verbal going over by Paul Scholes last night. The former Man United man did not hold back in any way and I can understand why it has been repeated by all the papers and media sites today, but there are some very goo reasons for Arsenal fans to dismiss his comments [...]
What positions do we need to improve over the summer? by KJ The defeat on Saturday has made me question the strength of the Arsenal team against those that are supposedly at a similar level to us. We have been thrashed three times away from home vs the best teams in the Premier league and [...]
What if Arsenal...? by Uche I am sitting in my office quietly taking in the fall-out of our disastrous humiliation at Stamford Bridge last weekend. I am stalling on my reaction because, well, after all these years staying calm is my preferred response. So for the first time in a long time, I refused to [.
I can hardly believe the situation that Arsenal are in having led the Premier League for most of the season, but the awful truth is that the Gunners are now in serious danger of turning our most promising season in years into the one when we finally drop out of the Champions League places. With [...]
Arsenal 2 â€“ 2 Swansea Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny â€“ 6.5 Couldn't do much about either goal. Didn't really have a role in the game and wasn't really forced to make many saves. Sagna â€“ 6.5 Was pretty poor going forward and struggled defensively against Routledge. Mertesacker â€“ 7 Wasn't really at fault for [.
Heads up, this is going to be a long one! by Nepali Gunner Arsenal drew 2-2 against Swansea yesterday, a really disappointing result. After the mauling we got at Chelsea, this was a must win game. Not only are we completely out of the title race now, we are scrapping for 4th place again. Not [...]
Well, what a rollercoaster that was. Arsenal needed a result tonight, badly, and we nearly got one despite playing badly. Arsene Wenger made an earlier sub than usual, and it was definitely the right move. Lukas Podolski came on to rescue the Gunners with a goal and an assist when we were in serious trouble, [.
This has all of a sudden become a massive game for Arsenal. The visit of struggling Swansea City should have been an easy three points for the Gunners, but after the disaster at the Bridge, it could be a very nervous affair. Arsene Wenger would have liked to rest a few of his big players [...]
I think that we could learn a great deal about Arsenal and the future of Arsene Wenger tonight. The Frenchman was clearly hurt, more by the manner of the defeat at Chelsea than the actual result. On his big landmark day, his players completely failed him. We all know that Wenger does not like to [...
The two oldest players in the current Arsenal squad, Tomas Rosicky and Mikel Arteta, with all their talent and experience are natural leaders in a fairly young team in general. So it is quite right that they have taken a lot of responsibility for the game that must be mentioned no more. Both of them [.
It is competition time again Arsenal fans, and we could all do with some cheering up after pretty much waving goodbye to the Premier League title at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. So what better way of making yourself feel better could there be than watching the Gunners beat the living daylights out of Swansea City [.
Mikel Arteta, time to go. by Rory When Mikel Arteta was signed by Arsenal in 2011, he was supposed to fill the boots of Cesc Fabregas. Obviously he would never be that good but he was a decent last minute replacement. Now he is 31 and realistically is not up to the central defensive midfield [...]
Wenger to make the walk at the end of the season? by Ash Whether you consider it good news or bad news, you cannot doubt that there will be an element of sadness in you as Arsenal could potentially witness the end of an era. After former Gunner Frank McClintock told Talksport that he thought [...]
Well Arsenal could certainly do with a bit of good news after an embarrassing mauling against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. And there is no time for Arsene Wenger and the players to lick their wounds, because we have Tottenham, Everton and Man United closing in on us for a fourth place finish and the final [.
Last Chance Saloon by Neil Sim What worries me is the stuff I keep reading about Wenger saying he was â€˜puzzled' by the Chelsea defeat and not knowing why it happened. On Arsenal.com he also said â€˜An accident has happened, that doesn't mean that you're not a good driver." Three maulings like that is no [.
Arsenal vs Swansea match preview by Ash Tonight Arsenal have the chance to appease the fans after the recent sorrows with a quick return to Premier League action. Arsenal will welcome Welsh side Swansea City to the Emirates tonight for yet another must win encounter. The must win games have been a persistent part of [.
I am really surprised but hugely relieved at the same time. Arsenal have been handed a double boost ahead of what now looks like a crucial Premier League game against Swansea City. The FA have upheld the Gunners' appeal for both Kieran Gibbs and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, which will be a huge relief to Arsene Wenger [.
Let me say first that I do not want to see Arsene Wenger end his reign as the manager of Arsenal at the end of the season. But after the Gunners suffered a third horrible capitulation of the season on Saturday, it is clear that there is a real problem that needs fixing. I am [...]
We need continued focus in both the EPL and in the FA cup! by Ash I have seen countless people say that Arsenal should forget the Premier League and just focus on the FA Cup now, however this is most certainly not the right approach to take. After witnessing yet another high scoring disaster against [.
The widespread belief in the football media is that Arsenal would have had Julian Draxler in the squad now if Arsene Wenger had agreed to pay something close to his release clause value of Â£37 million, and that the failure to sign the 20-year old sensation in January had left the door open for Bayern [.
Lack of physical aggression and attacking mobility are main problems for Arsenal! by Gooneristic Truth I must say that what I find most hard to believe is that Arsenal fans were actually optimistic for a good result against Chelsea. I guess that's what being a football fan is all about sometimes... Optimism!
Amidst all the awful performances by the Arsenal players and the terrible 6-0 defeat to the worst possible manager on the worst possible day, referee Andre Marriner took some of the heat off Arsenal by making a lughably poor decision to send Kieran Gibbs off for handball when it should have been Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
'Feel the Fear and fight it' by Terry Barry In looking for explanations of these freak Arsenal results and especially the big â€˜must win' games like this weekend, I have the following observations: i) The opening moments of the game when tension is high are critical and determining. ii) Once an early goal is conceded [.
Not only did Arsene Wenger refuse to take his usual post match interview after Arsenal got their arses handed to them by Chelsea on Saturday, the Frenchman also cancelled the press conference scheduled for today. Wenger was due to give his usual pre-match press conference ahead of the Premier League home game against Swansea tomorrow [.
Arsenal and the big games by Gun Nelsinnn This article I wrote in a bit of any angry state so please forgive if I offend anyone in anyway. I couldn't sleep for parts of last night, as I always do when Arsenal lose because when my team loses I lose too and I don't like [...]
Although Arsene Wenger did not come out of the Arsenal dressing room for the usual post-match interview after the 6-0 mauling by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, and who can blame him, he did later give his reaction to the game and took all of the blame for what was one of the worst of all [...]
This could be goodbye by JMT Unfortunately I think this recent match has exposed why Arsenal must finally attempt to part ways with Arsene Wenger. To say I'm embarrassed as a fan does not come close to expressing how I feel after this defeat. First I'd like to address the notion that the players are [.
Chelsea 6 â€“ 0 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny â€“ 4 Poor keeping all game from him. Constantly made clangers and should have saved at least one of the goals. Sagna â€“ 6 (Arsenal's MOTM) He was the only one who came out of this with a little bit of dignity but even then [...]
Why we lost to Chelsea today by KJ It was an absolutely harrowing performance by Arsenal at Chelsea. The most embarrassing defeat I've ever seen as an Arsenal fan. This is far worse than the 8-2 against Man United, simply because that team was made up of reserve/youth players whilst this team was first choice [.
Well at last Arsenal get a bit if good news on the injury front. One of our players is actually due back from the treatment table earlier than usual. And boy could we do with him. Jack Wilshere, who joined his midfield team-mates on the sidelines after a heavy tackle by Liverpool defender Daniel Agger [.
Arsenal capitulation raises questions by Dan Smith There is a common saying that "It's amazing how much more you can learn by making mistakes than you can by making perfect decisions." Yet in a week where the football world rightly reflected on everything wonderful about Arsene Wenger, his players saved the day of his 1000th [.
Wenger needs to return to his blueprint of success by Gameruk Yet again we have seen that in the big games Arsenal do not turn up and we got smashed! Many different opinions have been said as to why this keeps happening but I strongly believe its time for Wenger to go back to how [...]
Lucky, lucky Arsenal by Sam P First of all, let me make it clear that Arsenal have not had a lucky season! Injuries, cup draws and refereeing decisions have consistently been against us and the weight of all that has finally told. But maybe the football gods have got bored of kicking us and Arsene [.
What can I say Arsenal fans? I for one have had enough of this garbage and an heading for the nearest boozer! And on the landmark day of Arsene Wenger managing the Gunners for the 1000th competitive game. I am more ashamed to be an Arsenal fan than I have ever been. The only small [...]
Wenger should wave goodbye once and for all by lloydschatz Arsene Wenger will reach an incredible milestone this weekend when his Arsenal side takes on Chelsea. Wenger will be taking charge of his 1000th game as Arsenal manager, something that probably will never be matched at the club and a Premier League record only bettered [.
Some praise for the boss from Peter Hill-Wood by Ash As I am sure you will be aware Arsene Wenger celebrates his 1000th fixture in charge of Arsenal this weekend. The game which is a visit to Stamford Bridge to face Premier League leaders Chelsea, will be yet another tough trip and especially so as [.
Chelsea vs Arsenal Preview, Line up and Predicted Score by KJ Another massive game is upon Arsenal and this one will definitely decide whether we are really in the title race. If we lose, we are definitely out of the race, being 4 points behind Chelsea and 7 behind Manchester City (effectively). Draw and we [.
Arsenal cannot rely on their excellent home form to help in the FA cup, with the semi-final and final to be played at Wembley, but it is safe to say that it has helped the Gunners get there. The draws have not been easy, with Premier League sides in every round but one, but they [...]
Fingers crossed Arsenal fans, because if the Gunners are to win this one and get right back on track in the push for the Premier League title, I feel we may need a little bit of luck and that has been in shockingly short supply so far this season. This is not going to be [...]
Ozil is proud to be a Gunner! by Ash No matter what you want to think about Mesut Ozil at the moment there are two things you cannot take away from him. His desire to play and perhaps rather surprisingly, a true passion for Arsenal. Mesut Ozil has always spoken highly of Arsenal since the [...]
Arsenal players past and present, as well as fellow managers and all sorts of people connected with football, have been talking about Arsene Wenger and his achievements as the Frenchman's 1000th game in charge of the Gunners approaches. Some, like Jose Mourinho and Harry Redknapp sound like they have had to have their arms twisted [.
Arsene Wenger is trying not to get caught up in all the talk about his 1000th game as Arsenal manager. What is more important to the Frenchman than this remarkable milestone is the fact that tomorrow's clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge could be the most important match of the season. Both the Gunners and [.
Parlour on Ramsey by Ash In the latest of reports surrounding Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey this week, former Gunner and current Arsenal legend Ray Parlour has revealed how he believes Ramsey can become as good as Liverpool and England captain Steven Gerrard. The young Welshman is a slightly different type of player to Gerrard but [.
The media have had to find someone else to pick on now Arsenal's record signing Mesut Ozil has picked up a hamstring injury. They can't criticise his performances when he is in the treatment room, although I'm sure they would love to try, but Thierry Henry does not think they should be on his back [.
Wojciech willing to stay, forever! by Ash As players at Arsenal seem to be committing to new contracts quicker than Manchester United can grab points, the club has today received another boost with Wojciech Szczsney verbally commuting his future to Arsenal. From an interview in his home nation of Poland, reported by Sky Sports, Szczseny [.
As tributes pour in to Arsenal Football club from all over the football world on the eve of the 1000th game of Arsene Wenger's career as the most successful manager in the club's history, there is an elephant in the room, the trophy room to be exact. The media have, in recent years, been as [...]
It appears that Arsene Wenger was interested in bringing in the young French midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin to Arsenal from Strasbourg, where the Arsenal boss was born and played football for a few years, back in 2008. But the midfielder was young and untested and went to Southampton instead. You have to say that things have [.
Around about this stage of last season, Arsene Wenger was under more pressure than he had ever been since taking over the reins at Arsenal Football Club back on October 1st 1996. But that all seems long ago as the Frenchman affectionately known as Le Prof approaches the massive milestone of his 100th game as [.
Everyone has been describing Arsenal's north London derby win at Tottenham as being un-Arsenal like, because the Gunners did not play with their usual flair and defended deep for most of the second half. They conveniently forget to mention that we had some good chances to score that second goal and that we were never [.
Wilshere's injury isn't improving! by Ash Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere sustained an injury to his foot a couple of weeks ago and initially it wasn't well reported on when he would have been expected to return. The seriousness of the injury was left unknown, as it so often is with Arsenal and once again it [.
A lot of Arsenal fans were less than overjoyed, and that is like saying that Tottenham fans were less than overjoyed when they found out that Newcastle hadn't really equalised on the final day of last season, to hear that Arsene Wenger had blocked the deal that would have seen Nicklas Bendtner leave the Gunners [.
Is Lukasz Piszczek the man to replace Sagna? by Ash While there is a lot of concern surrounding the future of current Arsenal star Bacary Sagna, it seems as if a few people have already gone through the trouble of looking for possible replacements for the Frenchman. But the talented, versatile and concistent Frenchman is [.
Arsenal must get the tactics right for Saturday by Neil I seem to be the only person that has noticed. Samuel Eto'o has been a great player. He only knows one way to play. He hangs on the shoulders of defenders and tries to get in behind. He does get caught offside a lot, and [...]
If I was the suspicious type, I would think that the football authorities in England do not want Arsenal to win anything this season. Is there a Tottenham fan in charge somewhere? Not only have Arsenal been handed the toughest draw in every cup competition draw bar one, we have had some shockingly bad decisions [.
Why Jenkinson could use a loan at Newcastle by KJ A different piece of Arsenal transfer news today as the Evening Standard are reporting that Newcastle United are interested in loaning Carl Jenkinson for the entirety of next season. This is great news for Jenkinson in my opinion as his development has definitely stalled with [.
We all know that Arsenal make as much use of the loan system as they can. It gives our young players avital opportunity to experience some proper competitive football rather than just the underage reserve stuff which is not the same. And it has proved to be a great stepping stone for many of the [...
As the Premier League season builds to it's closest run conclusion ever, with Arsenal and three other sides still in with a very realistic chance of becoming the new champions of England, the players should be thinking of nothing but the next game. But behind the scenes at the Emirates, I expect there is a [.
There are all sorts of different reasons for the Arsenal manager to spend all this week getting his players built up mentally and prepared physically for the trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea on Saturday. The main one is that, if he doesn't, Arsenal could find themselves out of the race for the Premier [.
There is a very interesting story revealed today that Arsenal approached the young Iranian striker Sardar Azmoun on a break in Spain with his current side Rubin Kazan from Russia. Now before everyone shouts Who! you need to know that this 19 year-old has scored an amazing 26 goals in just 23 appearances for Iran [.
In defence of our stellar dcefender Bacary Sagna by Uche Hello folks. While still enjoying Arsenal's weekend win over the spuds even though we did not play very well I came across an article on this site on Bacary Sagna's wage demands and I could not help but join the debate. There are [...]
Kovacic a potential Arsenal star? by Ash Late March and the transfer rumours are doing their rounds once again and today Arsenal are being linked with Croatian starlet Mateo Kovacic. The Inter Milan star may still be a young talent with a lot of development still ahead of him as a player, however according to [.
With all the turmoil and speculation regarding the future Arsenal career of French striker Olivier Giroud, as well as the definite departure of bad boy Nicklas Bendtner, it seems as though Arsene Wenger is going to need to sign at least two new strikers in the summer transfer window. Like all Arsenal fans, I am [.
More to expect from Aaron Ramsey by Ash With the form Arsenal and Wales international midfielder, Aaron Ramsey, has shown this season, it's difficult to understand what more we could imagine of the player once he makes his long anticipated return to the pitch. Ramsey has shown everything from speed and skill to volleys and [.
So it looks like it is time for the Arsenal fans to start guessing as to who Wenger is going to buy in the summer (if he is still the manager of course!) According to the Telegraph, Wenger will have Â£100 million pounds to play with as the Gunners make more and more money from [...]
Brilliant News as Arsenal trio sign new contracts! by Ash It seems to be contracts galore going on at Arsenal at the moment with players signing on the dotted line, left, right and centre. Prior to today, Arsenal had already announced that Per Mertesacker and Tomas Rosicky, two Arsenal fan favourites, had re-signed for the [.
Do Arsenal really have a top four place confirmed? by Ash After beating our great North London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur in a 1-0 at White Hart Lane on Sunday, there have been a few suggestions that Arsenal have confirmed a top four finish with 5th placed Spurs currently sitting 9 points behind. A win for [.
Julian Draxler was widely expected to be the main focus of transfer interest for Arsenal in the summer. Having failed to do a deal with Schalke in the January transfer window after trying to persuade the Bundesliga club to accept less than the massive buy out fee for their starlet, the transfer was far from [.
With an FA cup semi-final against a side from a lower league, Arsenal have their best chance since the League Cup final of 2011. But nobody is saying much about that final, which Arsenal should have won against Birmingham City and it just makes the players nervous to even consider something like that happening again.
Hands up out there how many Arsenal fans are sick to the back teeth of Arsenal selling their best players to their direct Premier League rivals. That's everyone then, yeah? So Arsene Wenger and the club must draw a line under it now and refuse to sanction the sale of Thomas Vermaelen to Man City. [..
Ray Parlour knows a thing about winning trophies with Arsenal, having claimed nine major honours during his long career with the Gunners. And we know that the Romford Pele is a massive Arsenal fan and would love the current crop of players to silence the doubters and go on to lift the Premier League trophy [.
As has become the norm ahead of a clash with Arsenal, at least one of the Tottenham players started spouting off about turning tides or some such nonsense. It was no surprise to see that former Gunner Emmanuel Adebayor was having a pop at Arsenal before Sunday's game at White Hart Lane, but I wonder [.
With all the problems that Arsenal have had to cope with this season, with lengthy spells on the sidelines for Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Mesut Ozil, the Ox and more, it is easy to forget that the Gunners also have the French international midfielder on the treatment table, but maybe not for much [.
Sagna's lack of movement suggests he will almost certainly be off! by Ash Arsenal have so far convinced Per Mertesacker, Tomas Rosicky to extend their contracts, and seemingly verbally agreed with the likes of Ramsey, Cazorla and Arsene Wenger himself; however one name that continues to elude the Gunners is French international right back, Bacary [.
You cannot blame Tomas Rosicky for being upbeat after smashing a glorious winning goal for Arsenal. The early strike seasled a third win over the north London rivals and propelled the Gunners back above Man City into third and back into a realistic title race. There is a long way to go, of course, with [.
It is almost exactly a year since Wojciech Szczesny lost his place in the Arsenal team. His international team-mate Lukasz Fabianski was brought in for the away trip to face Bayern Munich and he put in a great shift as the Gunners recorded a famous 2-0 victory at the Allianz arena. This season, Szczesny was [.
Vital win draws line between top 4 and the rest by KM A win at the lane is always good for an Arsenal supporter. We hadn't won there in the league for some time now, 2007 in fact, but the three points are vital because it now separates the top 4 teams from the rest. [...]
If the stories in this weekend's papers are true and the Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has been given an ultimatum to return to France with his wife in order to save his marriage, Arsene Wenger wiull have one more player to sign in the summer. Assuming that Wenger wants to keeep the same general system [.
I think it is safe to say that for Arsenal to win the Premier League title this season, we need the sort of defensive performance that Earned all three points against Tottenham week in, week out. Goals win games, of course, but when you only need to score one it is so much easier. With [...]
It looks like Lukas Podolski is finally set to get a good run of games for Arsenal and a chance to stake his claim for more regular starts in the side. Arsene Wenger pretty much has to play the German striker because there is no one else left to fill the role. 21-year old Ryo [...]
This is not the first time you will have heard Arsenal linked with Matthias Ginter. The 20-year old central defender was heavily linked with a move to the Emirates last summer, after he impressed for the German under 21 international side. But now the rumours are back and stronger than ever. Maybe Ginter was a [.

Tottenham 0 â€“ 1 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny â€“ 6 He was decent today until he made those two absolute shockers in the first half. He failed to claim the ball twice leaving a Tottenham player an open goal to score in. Luckily he was bailed out by poor finishing and Laurent Koscielny. [...
Arsenal went in to this crucial north London derby knowing that they needed to win to stay level on points with Liverpool, who had easily beaten a very poor Man United earlier in the day. With injuries ravaging his squad, Arsene wenger started Podolski, Cazorla and Rosicky behind Giroud. The Czech midfielder showed straight away [.
Derby day is here Arsenal fans, and this one could be the most important in many years. A win for Arsenal today against our fierce local rivals will all but guarantee a top four finish for the Gunners. Arsenal would then be nine points ahead of fifth placed spuds with a game in hand to [...]
It has been a somewhat disappointing season for Santi Cazorla. The little Spaniard, who was voted as Player of the Year by the Arsenal fans in his debut season, has not quite managed to hit the same heights this time around. Cazorla has had plenty of problems to contend with, though. He has had injuries [.
Adebayor convinced Spurs can take advantage of Arsenal in the NLD! by Ash Emmanuel Adebayor, once loved by the Arsenal supporters, now probably one of the club's most hated players currently in the game, will again face up against his former side whilst featuring for Arsenal's biggest rivals in the North London Derby.
Tottenham vs Arsenal Preview, line up and predicted score by KJ The North London Derby is upon us once again and Arsenal have already won two of them whilst conceding no goals. However, this being an away tie at White Hart Lane means we could be in for a tough game with the support behind [...]
Whether you are one of the Arsenal fans who agrees with TV pundits like Alan Shearer, who thinks that Olivier Giroud and the way he plays is absolutely vital to the Gunners' chances, or one who thinks the only thing the French striker is good for is pulling a farmer's plough around a field, you [...]
I wrote an article yesterday about Arsenal needing Man City to beat Hull City in order to put pressure om Chelsea, and it could hardly have worked any better. A stuttering performance from the Blues which ended up with Jose Mourinho, Ramires and Willian being sent off as Aston Villa grabbed all three points.
Arsene Wenger was careful not to heap too much pressure on the Arsenal Player of the Month for February, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, when asked about him in an Arsenal.com report. The boss has been pretty careful with his talented young player ever since he signed him for around Â£12 million as a promising 17-year old from [.
Arsene Wenger always seems to have a great relationship with his players at Arsenal. Even the likes of Samir Nasri, Alex Song and others, who have let the boss down by pushing for a move away from the Gunners once Wenger has made them into top class players, still keep in contact and remain friendly [.
Is that the best they could do? With all the possible places that the FA could have re-scheduled the Arsenal vs. West Ham game, they picked the Tuesday after Arsenal play an energy sapping FA cup semi-final against Wigan Athletic at Wembley. Thanks guys. One thing is for sure, Arsene Wenger and the players will [.
Get ready Gunners, it is competition time again. As well as celebrating a historic Arsenal treble over local rivals Tottenham Hotspur, you could be celebrating a historic win in the famous Just Arsenal t-shirt competition by predicting three things about tomorrow's game at White Hart Lane. For those of you who have just returned fr4om [.
What to expect from the news on Aaron Ramsey? by Ash You may or may not be aware but Aaron Ramsey has been noted down as an absentee for the North London derby between Arsenal and Spurs this Sunday. The game which takes place was expected to be the return fixture for Aaron Ramsey to [...]
The questions and doubts about Arsenal and their medical staff will not be helped by the revelation that Mesut Ozil's latest injury was picked up in the first few minutes of the game against Bayern Munich, yet our most expensive player was not withdrawn until halftime. Wenger even said in his press conference that it [.
Martinez is Arsenal's managerial man? by Ash Unless something is brewing underneath the water and away from the media attention, nobody is expecting Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger to leave the club at the end of the season. In fact most agree that it seems likely that Le prof will be signing a new contract with [.
It's okay Arsenal fans, I haven't fallen out of bed and banged my head. Why else would I suggest that one of our main rivals for the Premier League winning a possibly tricky tie away to giant killers Hull City then? Idiocy? Possibly, but I do have a good reason, namely to put pressure on [...]
It is no exaggeration to say that every game is like a cup-final now for Arsenal. In fact, one of them could actually be a cup-final as long as the Gunners do not mess it up against Wigan at the start of April. Before that, however, Arsenal have the small matter of March to get [...]
Mesut Ozil the legend in the making by CJ Ozil was seen as the start of something special at Arsenal, the player who could take Arsenal to the next level, a marquee signing and most importantly the first in a list of big players to arrive at the club during the next few transfer [...]
I have wondered at times this season whether Arsenal have had a curse of some sort placed on them. The incessant problems the Gunners have faced with injuries this season has been hard to believe and has probably scuppered what was looking like being a brilliant title winning campaign. Eyebrows and questions have started to [.
There is no love lost between Arsenal and Tottenham fans and all of the players and staff at both clubs know just how important it is to win the bragging rights in north London. But after a less than cordial relationship between Arsene Wenger and his opposite numbers Harry Redknapp and Andre Villas-Boas, the current [.
With as many as 10 players being unavailable for Sunday's game at White Hart Lane, the Arsenal boss is facing a bit of a selection headache. One advantage that the Gunners do have is that Tottenham have two days fewer than us to recover and prepare. However, they can also afford to make a few [...]
End of the road this summer for Vermaelen? by Ash There has been a fair bit of controversy surrounding the future of Arsenal club captain Thomas Vermaelen this season with statements being made that he will be looking for a move away this summer. For the majority of the season he has maintained that he [.
With all the injuries that Arsenal have had to cope with this season, including now, it is easy to think that we need this player or that player, but we have to assume that everyone except Abou Diaby is likely to be fit at the start of next season. So although the Juventus and Italy [...]
Podolski's looking forward to the North London derby, are you? by Ash Lukas Podolski is the first Arsenal player to speak out ahead of another critical game for the Gunners this season, this one being the North London derby at Tottenham. Having already beaten the opposition once at the Emirates in the league already this [.
With Arsenal groaning under the weight of a growing injury list and heading to White Hart Lane for a game which could see them rejoin the title race or get sucked into a fight for fourth place, Arsene Wenger has delivered some very welcome news to Arsenal fans in his pre-match press conference. Three of [.
After this week's Champions League exit, Arsenal have just two competitions left to worry about. But we are normally out of everything and struggling to get in the top four by this point in a season so it is great to be in this situation. The Gunners vice-captain Mikel Arteta is certainly enjoying it, despite [.
While it is great for Arsenal fans to still have the hope of winning two major trophies at this point in the season, nothing is won yet and the Gunners could still finish another season empty handed. But with a game in hand on Chelsea in the Premier League we are still right in the [...]
I have got a funny feeling of deja vu writing this, probably because Arsenal seem to have an injury crisis every bloody week. The number of casualties this week is eight, according to the official website, but that list does not include the January loan signing Kim Kallstrom, who although he is back in training [.
A task too tough for the Gunners? by Ash Arsenal came away from Munich having drawn 1-1 with German league and cup and Champions League holders, Bayern Munich. The final aggregate score was 3-1 to Bayern Munich and it closed off another European adventure for an Arsenal side that really missed their opportunity of progression [.
Is the Ox Arsenal's star of the show 2014? by Ash Every season Arsenal seem to find a breakthrough player that shows exactly what they are capable of at the top level despite still being very much an inexperienced player to the game. Now Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may not fit the inexperience factor, considering he [.
Arsene Wenger does not like to give away much about who his transfer targets are for Arsenal, but the Frenchman may just have been found out on this one. When your scouts check out the same player four times in a month, either they are not doing their job very well or you are seriously [...]
The thing about momentum is, like confidence and a good reputation, it takes some time to build up but can vanish in a split second. Arsenal have all three of these things at the minute and, if used correctly, they could mean that the Gunners' title challenge is far from over, despite the seven point [.
Just a week or so after we read about how this Arsenal player felt that he had been branded with an unfair reputation, more fuel has been poured onto the fire. There are no prizes for guessing that I am talking about our old friend Nicklas Bendtner. This story, reported in The Guardian, is perhaps [.
Arsenal did not go out of the Champions League to Bayern because of the game in Munich, but if it wasn't for a brilliant penalty save from Lukasz Fabianski, they would have lost both legs of the last 16 tie. And both would have been directly attributable to, let's say debatable, decisions by the officials.
The question of whether the Arsenal manager has got some sort of problem with the German striker Lukas Podolski has been raised on more than one occasion and has never been successfully answered. It seemed pretty odd that Podolski was hardly used after coming back from a long injury lay-off, especially when Wenger had been [.
Bayern Munich 1 1 Arsenal Match Report Infographic by allArsenal.com A spirited performance from an Arsenal side which deserves a lot of admiration for the way they played. Coming back against the European Champions after a red card and a 2-0 deficit from the first leg was always a lot to ask, but the [.
By not winning their Champions League group, Arsenal brought yet another Champions League last 16 exit on themselves. But just like last season, it does not feel like a disaster. INstead, the Arsenal players and fans can feel great pride in standing toe-to-toe with Bayern Munich in their own backyard.
The news has yet to be made official by Arsenal Football Club, but it is being reported by a number pr reliable sources, including Sky Sports, that the young midfield talent Gedion Zelalem has agreed his first professional contract with the Gunners. The 17-year old has made just one appearance for the Gunners first team [.
Bayern 1 â€“ 1 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Fabianski â€“ 8.5 A great performance by our experienced Polish keeper. He made many saves as well as claiming the ball quickly with any crosses put into our box. He also made one of the best penalty saves I've ever seen. If you haven't seen it, [...]
Whether he is really in Arsene Wenger's plans for Arsenal or not, we will probably not know for sure until the last minute. The Frenchman and his transfer business are generally as hard to figure as the average theory of astrophysics. But it does seem that Loic Remy would not exactly play hard to get.
Arsenal exit with heads high by Uche Wow! Don't you just wonder what could have been if only Arsenal had a fair chance in the first leg of our game against Bayern? If only..... I am sitting in my living room all alone, with no distractions but the game before me and what was unfolding [...]
Apparently Arsene Wenger has seen enough. The on-loan Arsenal forward Joel Campbell has already done enough to convine Wenger that he deserves a chance to finally get a chance to show the club who own him what he can do. A lot of the problems, especially early on, stemmed from FIFA and their refusal to [.
After the Arsenal manager opted for a very attacking formation away to Bayern Munich, along with the German's record at the Allianz arena, it was not the rip-roaring start you would have expected. The Gunners could not quite get going and Bayern, although strong in possession and pressing Arsenal strongly, did not make too many [.
Arsene Wenger has gone for it. With Arsenal needing some soft of mini football miracle in Munich, I think he has done the right thing to name a very attacking line-up against Bayern Munich. The first goal could be crucial and so the boss is taking risks. If it goes wrong and the Germans score [...]
There is no doubt whatsoever that Arsenal's chances in the home leg against Bayern Munich were destroyed by the referee. Whether he was right or wrong to send off Wojciech Szczesny, when Robben seemed to have tipped the ball quite far away from goal, is not the dicussion here. The fact is that it ruined [.
As if a Champions League game away to the current holders Bayern Munich was not a daunting enough task, Arsenal may have to attempt it without some key players. Arsene Wenger is already having to cope without Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey< kim Kallstrom and Jack Wilshere and now he could have a serious problem in [.
When Mesut Ozil scored a very well taken opening goal for Arsenal in the FA cup on Saturday, Arsene Wenger must have felt a heavy weight lift off his shoulders. Because the man he smashed the club transfer record for in ASugust was beginning to look like a very expensive passenger. The manager is the [.
Okay I know that there is still a long way to go before the transfer window opens, but I would like to venture that Arsenal's involvement in the chase for trophies may give us an advantage over clubs like Manchester United in the summer transfer window, as David Moyes side may not even be able [...]
Guardiola warns Bayern of Arsenal test by Ash Whilst the Bayern Munich team had been warned of Arsenal's potential before they had to travel to London, it seems as if they had no trouble beating the Gunners with the game going from bad to worse. A 2-0 defeat last month saw Arsenal's hopes effectively slashed [.
Bayern Munich vs Arsenal Preview, Line up and Predicted Score by KJ The team will be feeling pretty happy at the moment considering it was a very good weekend for Arsenal. But they now have to focus on putting out a positive performance in the Allianz like last year to help reignite our season and [.
It remains to be seen, of course, but you get the feeling that Arsenal have put their recent troubles and dip if form behind them. They certainly need to, as we reach the business end of the season still in with varying chances of success in three competitions and that has not been true for [...]
I have tried not to write too much about the off-field problems recently experience3d by the Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud. We don't really know the details so it would just be speculation anyway. What we do know, however, is that the Frenchman apologised to his family, fans and team-mates and is keen to put things [.
No one at Arsenal was under any illusion that pulling off a repeat of last season's Champions League win in Munich would be easy. In fact it would be close to a miracle, even though the Gunners did it before. We have to realise that Bayern took their eye off the ball a bit last [...]
I wonder if Michael Owen has anything to say about Arsenal and Mesut Ozil today. Probably bot, because yesterday's game did not fit his biased and narrow-minded view of the football world. Especially as the man he has the temerity to criticise for inconsistency (pots, kettles and black come to mind), was back with a [.
It is fast becoming the Elephant in the room for Arsenal fans. Robin van Persie I mean. According to all the papers, the Dutchman is not happy at his new club Manchester United. He was happy when he picked up a Premier League medal last season, but the Moyes takeover and United's struggle to obtain [.
I am used to seeing stupid and misinformed stuff about Arsenal in the media, but today seemed to hit a new low. A spectacularly blinkered and idiotic article in the Metro lays the blame for the injury Jack Wilshere suffered in the England game against Denmark, not at the feet of Daniel Agger who made [.
Arsenal Must Be Favourite for FA Cup Now-But We Cannot Take It Lightly by Rabiul The last two days have been great for Arsenal. Not only did they thrash Everton 4-1 to reach the FA Cup Semi Final, but also saw their biggest threat in the competition, Man City, lose to Wigan in a shock [...]
Why Ramsey will win us silverware this season by KJ Most Arsenal fans will be on a high at the moment, not because of Saturday's result but because of yesterday's result. With Wigan knocking out Manchester City, there is a massive chance for Arsenal to finally end their trophy drought with two Championship teams and [.
Spring is in the air, and with the promise of sunshine coming the Sunday papers are warming up towards the transfer window (commonly known as the Silly Season on Arsenal websites!). Today's offering comes from the ever-fanciful Sunday Sun, who are proposing the very unlikely story that Manchester United believe that they can get our [.
I have to laugh. I just spent 10 minutes ranting at the wife about Arsenal's bad luck. I had just seen the FA cup draw that said the Gunners will face Man City or Wigan. Oh that is just great, I thought! And to be honest it was what I was expecting. So basically, Arsenal [...]
The speculation about Alvaro Morata coming to join Arsenal has not gone away, even though the proposed loan move in January didn't come off. The young Spanish striker has apparently accepted that he needs to move away from his boyhood club Real Madrid in order to play regularly and further his career, something he really [.
I do not blame the Arsenal fans for being a bit disappointed at times this season about the form of Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud. Put simply, both have not played well enough in some games. BUT let's give credit where it is due, Gooners, both have been instrumental in helping Arsenal to their best [.
I may be getting carried away after a good result, but we are all guilty of doing the opposite, like last week after Stoke for example. But I have a feeling that this game will galvanise the Gunners to go on a similar run-in to last season. The difference this time, however, is that we [...]
For some reason that is yet to be explained, Arsene Wenger has chosen to leave Lukas Podolski out in the cold this season, despite the Arsenal Number 9 scoring six goals in just 8 starts for the club this season, and it looks like the 28 year-old will be leaving the Emirates this summer. Well [...]
Some interesting news this morning is being reported that the Tottenham director Daniel Levy has gazumped Arsenal's deal with Ian Broomfield, despite a verbal agreement with the Gunners having been confirmed. The ex-Spurs and QPR head scout even released a statement a week ago saying: "The opportunity to work for Arsene Wenger at one of [.
Like most Arsenal fans, I have no great love or affection for the former Manchester United hardman Roy Keane. But Patrick Vieira's erstwhile foe is pretty entertaining as a TV pundit. He may say some of his comments to deliberately inflame the viewers, but he was spot on about Tottenham some weeks back when he [.
Arsenal vs Everton Player Ratings By Twig A perfect way to go into the game against Bayern. The score was a little flattering to how the game actually played, as until Arteta's penalty, Everton was really in the game. Hopefully, the result will spur us beyond Chelsea, City and Liverpool in the title chase?
Arsenal went into this crunch FA cup quarter-final on a run of poor form and desperately needing a confidence boost. Arsene Wenger also had the Jack Wilshere injury to cope with and he decided to go for the Arteta-Flamini partnership, with Oxlade-Chamberlain on the right. Yaya Sanogo got the nod again ahead of Olivier Giroud.
Ramsey to return stronger than ever! by Ash With the news that Aaron Ramsey has returned to training with the Arsenal first team and will no doubt soon be back on the pitch, it dampens any lasting concerns surrounding the recent injury crisis to Jack Wilshere. But with the Welshman having been out of action [.
Flamini is a leader on the pitch! by Ash Originally expected to be a player of minimal importance to Arsenal, Mathieu Flamini has become invaluable to the Gunners at some parts of this season. His determination, passion and nitty-gritty work rate has inspired Arsenal to victory on more than one occasion.
Arsenal vs Everton FA Cup Preview, Line up and Predicted score by KJ Every time Arsenal play a big match, it immediately becomes the biggest game of the season. That's natural considering the closer we get to the end of the season, the more these games decide whether it will ultimately be successful or whether [.
It seems that Mesut Ozil is coming under fire from all angles at the minute, but the Arsenal fans need to show our club record signing that we are behind him all the way with a rousing and determined show of support at the Emirates today. It seems to me just one more example of [...]
This is it Arsenal fans. This game could very well be the one that decides whether the Gunners look back on this season as a success and possibly the start of great things to come, or one more on the pile labelled disappointing. The simple fact is that Arsenal must beat Everton in the FA [...]
Let's lighten the mood a bit! by Shipley Jack After the despondency since last week's Arsenal result and on the eve of a tough cup match with Everton maybe the following few jokes will lighten us up and get us in a good frame of mind. Please remember that everything below IS just a joke [...]
Arsene Wenger has a few selection issues for his Arsenal team facing what could be one of the most important games of the season. Surely the biggest headache the Frenchman has is what to do now Jack Wilshere became the latest Gunner to be sidelined through injury. I may be wrong, but I am assuming [.
Flamini targeting FA Cup success! by Ash The FA Cup has often been sorted as a very predominant trophy to attain in English football and is certainly still the big trophy out of the two domestic knockout competitions in England. The Capital One cup attracts a crowd but deep down, it holds no speciality, often [.
It is competition time again Arsenal fans, and I am not talking about the FA cup. Well, I am I suppose because the competition is to predict three things about tomorrow's 6th round tie between Arsenal and Everton at the Emirates tomorrow. You should all know the drill by now. We want you to predict [.
How should Arsenal approach the game against Everton? by KJ Arsenal have another massive game coming up on Saturday and this is arguably the biggest of the season considering what it means. We are in the midst of a dip at the moment and that has seen us drop to 3rd in the Premier League. [...]
We all know that Nicklas Bendtner will be leaving Arsenal when his contract is up at the end of the season. Even if he plays some stunning football between now and then, his fate is sealed, but the Denmark international is hoping to do that anyway. After putting in a decent performance against England last [.
Samir Nasri may not be the most loved former Arsenal player around, but he still has some close ties to the club, especially with his compatriot and former boss Arsene Wenger. He may have left Arsenal because of the lack of silverware, although a huge increase in wages might have helped as well, but he [.
Why Wilshere's injury isn't a major blow to Arsenal by Ash Although the title may seem a bit strange, a little bit of analytical thinking will suggest just why Jack Wilshere's latest injury may prove to be not as bad for Arsenal as everyone seems to think. Wilshere at his best is an awesome sight, [.
I know it is not confirmed that Bacary Sagna will not be an Arsenal player next season, but after the club announced new contracts for Rosicky and Mertesacker this week, the silence on Sagna was telling and his departure is almost as likely as Spurs missing out on the Champions League. So Arsenal need a [.
Well Arsenal fans, we are into the last 10 Premier League games of the season. The Gunners had a fantastic first half of the campaign but have dropped off a bit in recent weeks. We are sitting in third place, four behind current leaders Chelsea and behind second placed Liverpool on goal difference. Man City [.
I just can't believe it! Another seemingly innocuous injury to an Arsenal player ends up leading to another long spell on the sidelines. This time it is Jack Wilshere who is facing six weeks out of action. The 22-year old took what looked like a painful blow to the top of his foot from Denmark [...]
First of all, apart from slight concerns about Laurent Koscielny and Jack Wilshere, Arsenal have not lost any players to long-term injuries picked up on international duty. So with Aaron Ramsey due back very soon, Arsene Wenger will hopefully have an almost full squad for the rest of the season. There may be a few [.
Why does it seem that whenever a large number of Arsenal players head off to international duty, it always Jack Wilshere who is one of the biggest worries. Maybe it is because I am an England fan as well, but I am always biting my nails when he goes into a tackle or is clipped [...]
Why Flamini has been so important this season! by Ash When Arsenal re-signed Mathieu Flamini it certainly caused an opinion divide between Arsenal fans. The announcement came late in the transfer window and we still hadn't spent any of the rumoured excess Â£100 million that was in the bank for transfers.
Mesut Ozil shrugs off criticism with "I don't care!" by Ash Arsenal's German international Mesut Ozil has sensationally swiped back at the media and fans' criticism of him with a response that shows how he clearly isn't affected by criticism. Ozil has come under a lot of pressure since Christmas, rightly or wrongly, because his [.
I am sure that I am not the only Arsenal fan who wants Arsene Wenger to alter his priorities a bit in the next six days. He would normally prioritise the Champions League over the FA cup with games in each coming within three days of each other, but has already hinted that he will [...]
It has been the story of the season for Arsenal; injuries, injuries and more injuries. And with a lot of the Gunners involved in international friendly games last night, there was always the possibility that Arsenal would be hit again. As well as Jack Wilshere taking a painful whack to his foot, which could bruise, [.
Bendtner looking likely to leave at the end of the season? by Ash Whilst everyone is focusing on contract signings elsewhere with Tomas Rosicky and Per Mertesacker two notable players to tie the knot with Arsenal for a few more years between them at the very least, one player that has been forgotten is Nicklas [.
Just like last season, Arsenal have a big game in the FA cup just days before a Champions League match against Bayern Munich. There are differences this season, however, and one of the main ones, according to Arsene Wenger, is that the Gunners will definitely not take their eye off the ball this time.
Arsenal fans could be set to find out whether the signing of Swedish international Kim Kallstrom at the end of the January transfer window was a complete nonsense or just a P.R. disaster. The 31-year old midfielder is back in full training and might even feature in Saturday's FA cup 6th round game against Everton, [.
As you are probably already aware, Arsenal Football Club has agreed a new extension to the current contract of Per Mertesacker. The new three-and-a-half year deal will expire in 2017, meaning that our giant German international defender will have been with the Gunners for six years but will still only be 32-years old.
Mistakes Wenger has been making by George Gooner As an Arsenal fan from Nigeria, I am by far not the longest serving Arsenal fan but I came during the good times and I have been surfing and hoping during these long fruitless and bad times. So as every other Gooner I have stopped to think [...]
Ramsey set to double his deal with a five year extension! by Ash On a day that has been full of contract news for Arsenal Football Club, with Per Mertesacker and Tomas Rosicky both agreeing 3 year and 1 year extensions respectively, the tables now turn to Aaron Ramsey who is being mooted as the [...]
Why Wenger needs to accept our limitations and prioritise the FA cup by KJ After the disappointing loss to Stoke, Arsenal are now hoping to get a win against Everton at the weekend to ensure we don't let this slide of 2 wins in 6 games continue. To do this, we will need to put [...]
Arsenal fans know that club manager Arsene Wenger is not like most managers. His style has never been to blast the players with a halftime hairdryer, criticise the players publicly or put pressure on them to perform. Many would like him to be a bit more like that sometimes, but I am not going to [...
The Emirates is truly awesome By AondoaverK Hi Arsenal fans. Saturday was not a very good day was it? I missed watching the Stoke game on Television, holed up at, of all places, Stamford bridge. If I say I wasn't feeling dejected, I would be lying. There was this feeling of something slipping away. And [.
When Arsene Wenger picked his Arsenal starting XI to face the rough tactics of Stoke City in the cauldron of the Britannia stadium on Saturday, the Frenchman made just one change and that was to bring Kieran Gibbs in for Nacho Monreal. The Spaniard may have been replaced anyway, but it meant that Wenger stuck [.
It is hardly surprising that Arsene Wenger was not in the best of moods after his Arsenal side lost a crucial game in the race for the Premier League. And the fact that the Frenchman was not very pleased with the tough tactics of Stoke and the leniency of the referee will not come as [...]
There are various reasons why some clubs do better in the transfer market than others. Arsenal fans will be hoping for much more in the transfer market from now on, but there are still some very big hitters out there that, on the face of it, Arsenal will simply not be able to compete with. [...]
Why Wenger has to take some of the blame for the result against Stoke by KJ This weekend has been terrible if you're an Arsenal fan. All of our rivals won their Premier league matches and we have now slipped down to 3rd (effectively 4th as Man City will most likely win their games in [...]
I don't mind the Arsenal players talking up a good game, by any means. However, it really winds up the fans when they have been saying all the right things before a game, only to fail to produce on the pitch. One of the worst occasions recently was before the trip to Anfield. The week [...]
It seems that the Gunners have been working hard behind the scenes to sort out the future of some of the Arsenal squad who are coming to the end of their current contracts. And it appears that the club has been fairly successful as well. However, it is not all good news. According to the [...]
Wenger hints at a potential Arsenal summer signing? by Ash Arsene Wenger is not well renowned for his hints when it comes to transfer talk, and in fact he usually shies away from the questions altogether. However if it isn't a lie about not knowing Santi Cazorla or not being interested in Luis Suarez, then [.
Arsenal fans are understandably confused and angry about why Arsene Wenger has done so little in the last two transfer windows, especially after the recent financial figures showed the Club doing really well and having lots of money in the bank. Apart from smashing the Arsenal transfer record to sign Mesut Ozil on the summer [.
We are still all in shock after Arsenal's defeat to Stoke yesterday, and Arsene Wenger thinks that his strike force was ineffectual, but the defeat was simply down to a bad decision by the referee who awarded Stoke a penalty. Wenger said on Arsenal.com: "I felt we had a good defensive performance and overall we [.
An article actually worth reading, highlighting two important topics that should be understood. by Kazra To my fellow Gooners, I have been viewing this website for over a year now whilst reading almost every article posted. I admit some are good but I also admit more often than not, several are of a poor quality.
What happened Arsenal? I have two days off and everything goes pear-shaped. Stoke, really? Actually, to be honest I am not that surprised. They are always a tough team to play at the Britannia Stadium and they are always up for a game against Arsenal more than any other. The upshot of it all, however, [.
As if the football at the weekend was not bad enough for Arsenal fans, someone has decided to pour salt and vinegar into our open wounds. The American John W. Henry who owns Liverpool has pretty much admitted that Arsenal's attempt to sign Luis Suarez in the summer should have been successful, but they just [.
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 [...]
