When Arsene Wenger recently warned Arsenal fans that we would need to be patient this summer, and not to expect much action in the transfer market until after the World Cup finals, it generally brought two responses. The first, was along the lines of, `oh no here we go again with the penny pinching and [.
It looks like Arsenal are going to be doing some business with La Liga club Real Sociedad at some point this summer, whether they like it or not. It could involve the transfer of either Antoine Griezmann or the return of Carlos Vela, or even both, so hopefully the two clubs have got a good [...]
Now that Arsene Wenger has signed a new three year contract to stay at Arsenal, following the Gunners finally getting the trophy drought monkey off our backs with an FA cup triumph, Gooners everywhere are understandably bullish and optimistic about the future. But that optimism could soon evaporate, just as it did last summer, if [.
We were all expecting it, Arsenal fans, and now the 90 percent certainty of Bacary Sagna has turned into a 100 percent definite decision that he will not be playing for Arsenal next season. And it looks like he will be making the same trip as former gunners Samir Nasri, Gael Clichy and Emmanuel Adebayor [.
Aaron Ramsey was undoubtedly the star of the season for Arsenal, despite the fact that he had to watch a lot of the second half from the sidelines. The 23-year old is too modest to talk about how much the Gunners suffered from his three month absence, but he has identified a few other areas [...]
One of the theories doing the rounds about what Arsenal are planning to this summer, involves signing a winger. With Sagna, Fabianski and possibly Vermaelen on their way out of the Emirates, it does not take a genius to figure out that a right back, keeper and central defender will be on the shopping list.
I think Paul Scholes would be happy if not a single Arsenal player featured in the World Cup finals this summer. JUst like Michael Owen, he has ripped into the Gunners this season and seems desperate for his own biased predictions to come true. Since his infamous TV rant, many have pointed out the several [.
The tale of two positions by Blaz I will start this piece about recent Arsenal transfer rumours with our captain Thomas Vermaelen. I strongly believe he will be with us for at least one more season. Regardless of his lack of play, he still has a place in the first XI of the Belgium national [...]
It is not exactly a surprise to Arsenal fans, or anyone else in the football world for that matter, but the documents have now been signed to say that Arsene Wenger will stay in charge of the Gunners for the next three years. It is being reported by various news websites including The Mirror and [...
That is just typical of Arsenal's luck! Arsene Wenger has had to watch while plenty of the players he nurtured and looked after like a father figure, like Nasri and Van Persie, abandoned the Gunners in search of bumper pay packets. Just this summer Arsenal are losing Bacary Sagna because we cannot match the salary [.
It must have been frustrating for quite a few of the Arsenal players this season, with injuries stopping them really getting up a head of steam, but it must be even worse when you can see your dreams of playing in a World Cup finals in Brazil disappearing over the horizon. It happened to poor [...]
The transfer rumour mill is picking up speed, with Arsenal featuring heavily as usual. With just two weeks to go before the World Cup finals kick off in Brazil, two days after the summer transfer window officially opens, there will be feverish activity going on behind the scenes of most clubs, no matter what Arsene [.
I know that a lot of Arsenal fans will not be happy to hear that the big centre forward Olivier Giroud is set to be rewarded with a new contract, bgut it looks like they are just going to have to get used to the fact that Arsene Wenger sees the France international as a [...]
As usual, Arsenal approach a summer transfer window with Champions League football as a nice juicy worm to tempt any potential signings, while our north London rivals Tottenham only have Thursday nights in the Europa League. But now that Tottenhams have appointed Mauricio Pochettino from Southampton as their new manager, it could have an adverse [.
If you go on the premise that there is no smoke without fire then it would seem that Arsenal are on the verge of signing the young Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, as there is an avalanche of stories regarding the deal this morning. First of all the Telegraph this morning says that Arsenal are [...
The widely decorated Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o still has bags of ability going by some of his excellent performances for Arsenal's London rivals this season, but his one year contract is now set to end and he has no intention of extending his stay at Stamford Bridge. According to today's Mirror, Eto'o is keen to [.
Arsenal are resigned to losing THE Polish keeper Lukasz Fabianski as his contract expires this summer, and finding the proper replacement could be one of the most important bits of business that Arsene Wenger does in this transfer window. The latest player linked is John Ruddy and I think he could be the perfect choice.
When Arsenal signed then 19-year old Carl Jenkinson back in 2011, the teenager had made eight appearances in League One for Charlton Athletic, but Arsene Wenger clearly saw a huge amount of promise in him. But three years later, and the young right back has yet to feature in 40 Premier League games. Jenkinson is [.
Arsenal can win the Premier League with no stress by A.O. Hello Arsenal fans, it interests me contributing to your well garnered and gathered articles about Arsenal. From all angles of the Arsenal FC season of 2013\14, I think I have observed what is needed for the Gunners to win the league next season with [.
Oh well, at least that is one less player for Arsene Wenger to worry about, as he sets out to provide Arsenal with the players that will push the club on from last season's promising campaign. It is not as if the Gunners are running out of transfer targets anyway, with the papers linking us [...]
I must admit to being slightly underwhelmed by the latest Arsenal transfer rumour, as it has the Gunners moving from the established world class striker that is Karim Benzema, on to the relatively unproven but promising young forward called Rodrigo. According to the Daily Star, Arsene Wenger is ready to offer around £24 million for [.
-It has been reported that Cesc Fabregas has been spotted out in London with his girlfriend. And with recent reports linking the Spanish midfielder with a possible transfer back to Arsenal, there are inevitably suggestions that one of the reasons for him being in the English capital is to discuss his move.
It is usually Arsenal that are caught scratching their heads and considering whether they should complete a transfer, when another club swoops in and signs the player from under their noses, a la Gonzalo Higuain, Juan Mata and Eden Hazard. But it seems that the swooping might be done by the Gunners this time, with [.
Arsene Wenger surprised everyone in the January Transfer window when he brought the Spartak Moscow midfielder Kim Kallstrom to Arsenal, when it was obvious to everyone that we needed a backup striker for Olivier Giroud more than anything else. Gooners were even more unimpressed when it was found that the Swedish international was suffering from [.
There was a lot of interest for Arsenal fans in last night's friendly game between France and Norway. Not only were there three current Arsenal players in the France World Cup squad, but there were a few potential transfer targets for us to look at as well. And we were not disappointed. Bacary Sagna, although [.
Even if Arsene Wenger had decided to call it a day and leave the Arsenal managerial position to someone else this summer, he would still have gone down in history as the club's most successful manager in history, up to this point at least. But despite guiding the Gunners to five FA cups and three [..
The Arsenal manager could be left scratching his head today, and wondering if he has somehow got his maths wrong. Arsene Wenger could have been forgiven for assuming that the sanctions imposed by UEFA on Man City and the French champions PSG recently would mean an easier summer in the transfer window for him and [.
Every time I wrote an article during the season just gone, bemoaning Arsenal's terrible luck with injuries, and other things like referees and cup draws, I was accused of being biased, blinkered and a bad loser. Well here is the proof that although I may be a bad loser and biased, I am not blinkered.
Arsene Wenger has been looking back at the season that so nearly saw his Arsenal team crowned champions of England for the first time since the amazing invincible Gunners of 2003-o4 won it without a single league defeat. The Frenchman has identified a key factor in the way Arsenal's Premier League challenge fell away in [.
Arsenal fans were given their first big injury scare of the summer today, over two weeks before the World Cup finals kick off in Brazil. And it was Aaron Ramsey who is the subject of concern, despite the fact that our young Welsh star has not had to train or play since the Gunners lifted [...]
There have been rumours and reports that a number of Arsenal players could be on their way out of the club this summer, but at least it is nothing like a few years ago when every transfer window was a period of dread for Arsenal fans, as the vultures like Man City would circle over [...]
Last season, at times when Arsenal fans were frustrated with the French striker Olivier Giroud, we were encouraged to give the big front man some time and patience. After all, his previous record proved that he had always settled in and performed better in his second season with a club. That pattern continued at Arsenal, [.
One of the problem positions that Arsenal need to strengthen in the summer is central defence. Not that Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny are not good enough, because they have worked themselves into an outstanding pairing. But with club captain Thomas Vermaelen looking like he will leave the Gunners this summer, and Johan Djourou having [.
Do we really want to bring back former players? by K.M. Heading into the transfer window, not too much is rumored about Arsenal yet, except a few former players we might look to bring back. Now first of all, Wenger rarely brings former players although we have seen it in recent years a few times [...
The preparations for the World Cup are ongoing, with no less than 12 Arsenal players hoping to help their country to glory in Brazil. So apart from a few friendly games, the players are cooped up with their international team mates for the next month or so, and it seems like Mesut Ozil may have [...]
One of the large number of strikers that have been linked with a possible transfer move to Arsenal this summer is Wilfried Bony. The Swansea City centre forward had a storming debut season in the Premier League, made more impressive by the fact that his club were struggling and were in danger of being dragged [.
I don't know about the rest of you Arsenal fans, but I am still hoping that our Belgium international centre back Thomas Vermaelen has a change of heart, signs a new contract and works hard to show that he can provide a stern challenge to first choice defenders Koscielny and Mertesacker. But if he doesn't, [.
Now that his parent club have finished their season, Arsenal target Loic Remy should have a better idea of where he is going to be playing his football next season. And even though QPR managed to secure promotion back into the Premier League with a dramatic late winner against Derby County, his manager Harry Redknapp [.
I am not sure what to make of this one, Arsenal fans. I am tempted to file it under, not a snowball's chance in hell, but seeing as the Gunners are on the up and in need of a keeper to replace the departing Polish stopper Lukasz Fabianski, I will keep an open mind. Metro [...]
Morning Arsenal fans. I did wonder, and wrote an article about it yesterday, whether the Champions League final would turn out to be the last time we saw Karim Benzema playing for Real Madrid. Little did I know, however, that those were just about the exact words uttered by the Arsenal boss as he commented [.
It appears that Arsene Wenger may have been slightly economical with the truth when he warned Arsenal fans not to expect any early action in the transfer market. With most of the Gunners, as well as the internationals from all the big leagues around Europe, having joined their national teams in preparations for the World [.
Bacary Sagna is still an Arsenal player, at least for now anyway. The 31-year old has moved to squash the rumours, widely reported in the English media, that he has already come to terms with Premier League champions Man City, although he does not deny that they are among the clubs he has been in [..
The financial figures released today should not be confused with the figures that show how much a club like Arsenal are earning, or how profitable they are. And even though they are supposed to reflect the value of a club, it is more to do with the strength of the brand, calculated by various factors [.
It is becoming fairly normal for Arsenal to be up against the Italian Serie A side Napoli. Last summer they beat us to the signing of Gonzalo Higuain, after it was reported the the Gunners were on the verge of snapping up the Argentinean international. Then we played them in the Emirates cup before they [.
I am not trying to say that Arsenal are too good for him, or that the Gunners would not have been better off last season with him in the squad, but I am not sure that we should even be considering challenging Everton for the services of Gareth Barry. The former England international is definitely [..
As the current Arsenal captain, Thomas Vermaelen, considers his future at the club, with many expecting the Belgian to be sold with just one year of his current contract remaining, the Gunners could soon be welcoming back a former captain, Cesc Fabregas. The Spanish midfielder's time as a Barcelona player looks like it is coming [.
Arsenal have reportedly added the name of Mario Balotelli to the growing list of strikers o0n their transfer wish list for this summer. The Italy international could be ready to end his stint at boyhood club AC Milan and the Gunners are thinking of bringing the talented but eccentric striker back to the Premier League.
Reason's why Giroud will stay in Arsenal's attack by AndyArsenal05 I know I'm gonna get many thumbs down for this but I'm not going to be surprised to see Olivier Giroud still in the Arsenal starting line up for next season. Here are the reasons. 1) He didn't do such a terrible job for this [...]
No Arsenal fans will be surprised that Nicklas Bendtner and Park Chu Young (did he ever join?) have been released by Arsene Wenger, but some of us thought that Chuks Aneke may have been given a new contract after scoring 16 goals on loan at Crewe this season. But it looks like Wenger thinks there [..
Who to name for the job? by Blaz The season that successfully ended a week ago was very interesting for Arsenal. Especially if we look through the eyes of the team leadership. We had a captain that started just a handful of games, then we had two players who wore the armband in his place, [...]
Definitely the best Arsenal rumour around this morning is the report from the Mirror which claims that Arsene Wenger is looking at the possibility of buying the Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira, who linked up so successfully with Mesut Ozil before the German moved to Arsenal. They say that Wenger approached Madrid in January over [.
There have been plenty of recent stories linking Arsenal with a possible transfer move for the Real Madrid and France striker Karim Benzema. And if the French striker was hoping to convince Carlo Ancelotti and his Madrid bosses that they do not need to look for another central striker, then last night's Champions League final [.
After nine years without a trophy, Arsenal finally have an FA cup to celebrate. Since Patrick Vieira scored the final penalty against Man United to lift the trophy in 2005, Arsenal fans have had to take some serious ribbing from their rivals, but now it is time for some payback. The spuds are too easy, [.
With Bacary Sagna expected to sign for Manchester City as soon as the transfer window opens, there have been many Arsenal rumours concerning his replacement, but recently the Gunners have been positively linked with Schalke's Atsuto Uchida. This versatile defender has proved to be one of the best in the Bundesliga and last season he [.
The voting is underway for the Arsenal Player of the Season. I do not make any claims to clairvoyancy, but I can confidently predict the future on this one. Aaron Ramsey has been a revelation for the Gunners this season, after a huge percentage of fans, including the embarrassment that is Piers Morgan, thought that [.
Everybody is assuming that Arsenal are simply looking for a backup keeper to Wojciech Szczesny now that Lukasz Fabianski has decided to leave the club, but with todays report from the Metro saying that Arsene Wenger is willing to shell out £8 million for Stoke's Asmir Begovic, maybe we could be wrong?
Mikel Arteta has just one year left of his current contract with Arsenal. I have seen some comments suggesting that it is time for the Spaniard to move on, while there have been reports of interest from Serie A club Fiorentina. Personally, I am hoping that Arsene Wenger, instead of selling him this year or [.
Radamel Falcao anyone? The Arsenal boss and his scouting and transfer people may have to put their efforts to sign a central striker to compete with Olivier Giroud on hold for a while. Because Arsene Wenger needs to pick up the phone and get in touch with his old club, AS Monaco, and find out [...]
Every year there are more and more Fabregas-to-Arsenal rumours, but this year it is looking like it could actually come to pass, now that the 27 year-old's love affair with the Barcelona fans seems to have come to an end. Poor old David Moyes tried very hard to secure captain Fab last summer without success, [.
I am trying to maintain my mood of optimism, but this is Arsenal we are talking about. That old familiar feeling is starting to creep over me, deja vu style, and I can just picture myself around halfway through August, with the Premier League season already started, thinking what the hell is going on!
It is well-known that Arsenal have a buy-back clause to bring Carlos Vela back to the Emirates for the ridiculously (now, anyway) low price of 4 million euros, and according to a report on ESPN today the Gunners have commenced talks with Real Sociedad. They report that the La Liga club have offered Arsenal £4.
If Arsenal signed every striker they were linked with in the build up to this summer's transfer window, there would be no room for midfielders, defenders or a keeper in the squad. With Nicklas Bendtner off to seek his fortune and find out that nobody else shares his high opinion of himself, I think we [.
The Arsenal front line could soon look like some kind of comedy act. Little and Large maybe, as the player whose agent has confirmed the transfer interest of a number of clubs, including Arsenal, is just 5ft 5in tall. Standing next to 6ft 4in Olivier Giroud, Sebastian Giovinco would not come to the Frenchman's shoulders.
It would not be the first time that a player took a cut in pay to join Arsenal, with that apparently being the situation when Mikel Arteta joined the Gunners from Everton to get Champions League Football. With James Milner currently earning around £80,000 a week at Man City and being offered a new contract [.
Did you really believe Arsene Wenger's claim that he knew nothing about Loic Remy watching from the Emirates stadium stands as Arsenal beat West Brom in their final Premier League home game of the season? Methinks he did protest too much. The Gunners have been linked with the French striker for some time now, although [.
Don't laugh Arsenal fans! I am serious. I know that Marouane Fellaini provided us with plenty of bullets to fire at miserable Manchester United and their fans this season, and that the Belgium international endured a torrid time at Old Trafford, but that is why he is available on the cheap, according to a report [.
Both of Arsenal's England World Cup players found out today a little bit more about how much action they can expect to see in Brazil. The England manager Roy Hodgson has revealed what squad numbers the players will wear at the World Cup and it looks good for Jack Wilshere. Nothing is certain, of course, [.
Arsenal fans are used to Ivan Gazidis telling us that Arsene Wenger has a massive transfer fund to spend every summer, but last week Mr. Chips spoke up our chances of improving the team, but now the Arsenal director Lord Harris of Peckham has gone even further in last night's London Evening Standard.
On the day that the Arsenal Director Lord Harris has promised Arsene Wenger almost unlimited funds to improve the team, the daily papers are full of big-money Arsenal transfer rumours to help Wenger in his search! To start with, the Daily Mirror says that Arsenal are in pole position to re-sign Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona.
It is never nice to see one of your better and well loved players joining a direct rival, and Arsenal fans have had to cope with it on a much too regular basis in recent years. So the news that our French international defender Bacary Sagna was moving to Premier League champions Man City was [...]
There is a theory doing the rounds that Arsene Wenger does not really want to bring Carlos Vela back to play for Arsenal. It has been reported that the Gunners were due to activate the buy back option inserted into the striker's contract when he was sold to La Liga club Real Sociedad, and after [...]
Seven observations on Arsenal by Blaz It's been almost a week since the last time Arsenal got a trophy, so I did have my time to think about the game and what it told me. So here are a few things the whole world saw on Saturday: 1: We are not quitters! Even though we [...]
Don't get too excited Arsenal fans. Even if the reports of the club handing Arsene Wenger a transfer budget of around £100 million are true, and assuming that our thrifty Frenchman is planning to spend as much as her can, it does not mean that we can sign the players we really want. Players like [..
Even though Arsenal Football Club has emerged from the other side of the financial tunnel caused by the financing of the Emirates stadium, it seems that the Gunners are still playing in a lower league to some other clubs. And despite the recent sanctions imposed on them by UEFA for breaking the FFP rules, Man [.
He may not be one of the big name players that Arsenal fans were hoping for, but when I heard about the possibility of signing James Milner from Man City this summer for a fee of around £10 million, I thought it sounded like an excellent piece of business for Arsenal. The 28-year old gets [...]
I still think that there should be three Arsenal players in the England World Cup squad picked by Roy Hodgson. Luke Shaw may have been very impressive as he burst on to the scene with Southampton this season, but Kieran Gibbs has also been brilliant for Arsenal and has more experience, especially at the top [.
Everyone connected with Arsenal Football Club is on a high at the minute, understandably so after the Gunners finally broke that trophy jinx that looked like it would go on for another year at least. The manager showed his nerve and tactical nous, while the players showed their spirit and skill, so now we are [.
THE SEASON DEFINING MOMENTS OF OUR BELOVED ARSENAL.. by Philthompsonsnose How was it for you my fellow gooners...? My first comment must be to congratulate the players and manager for a truly memorable victory.. And a great game for many neutrals as well as us heart attack victims watching it especially Mertesackers calamity (almost).
Arsene finally discovers that winning formula! Over the years, I have been negative on the outlook for Arsenal Football Club, most notably under the guidance of the clubs most successful manager, Arsene Wenger. After the stellar signing of signing of Mesut Ozil on deadline day, I was optimistic that this was the season for Arsenal [.
The agent of Arsenal target Javier Mascherano has issued a statement to any clubs hoping to sign the Argentina international. The statement, in essence, reveals that the reason the 29-year old is planning to leave his La Liga club is the insistence of Barcelona in playing him in the centre of defence.
There has been widespread speculation about the future of Thomas Vermaelen at Arsenal Football Club. The Belgium international is thought to be ready to move on due to the defensive pairing of Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny keeping him out of the first team. At the moment we are just waiting to see if the [.
There are growing signs that Cesc Fabregas could soon be playing for Arsenal Football Club again, despite the fact that Louis van Gaal is rumoured to have put the Spanish international near the top of his transfer wish list at Man United. The Dutchman was apparently planning an offer of £40 million for the former [.
No one would be too surprised if Theo Walcott was a bit downbeat at the minute, after two separate injuries decimated his season with Arsenal and meant that his World Cup hopes with England were wrecked once again. The 25-year old would have been a nailed on for Roy Hodgson's final team, but he really [.
Rmour has it that Arsenal Football are going to release around £100 million of their reserves to provide the biggest transfer fund that Arsene Wenger has ever had to work with since taking charge of the Gunners back in 1996. The Frenchman may not get that much every year, so he really needs to make [.
Hartson tips Ramsey for Arsenal stay by CR Former Arsenal striker John Hartson has admitted he believes Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey will be the subject of plenty of interest from clubs this summer but has backed the midfielder to stay with the Gunners. Ramsey capped a sensational individual season by scoring an extra-time winner as [.
The Toulouse right-back Serge Aurier has been the subject of many Arsenal rumours in the last few weeks, and he is hotly tipped to be the replacement for the contract-rebel Bacary Sagna. Although Carl Jenkinson is expected to be the natural successor to Sagna, Aurier could easily compete for the starting spot after being named [.
I know that Arsenal have worked hard to get themselves in a great financial position, after Arsene Wenger kept the club in the Champions League while the debt for building the Emirates Stadium was paid off. So now the Frenchman is going to be rewarded with a big fat transfer war chest to ensure that [.
Arsenal's transfer window plans by Blaz Now that Arsenal's season is over (the little thing like CL Final and World Cup in Brasil should not bother us), title in our hands, everyones focus will more or less fall on the transfer window. It should be an interesting one at that, we showed last year that [.
Both on the Wembley pitch after Arsenal had completed their remarkable comeback after going two goals down to Hull City, and during the bus parade through north London the following day, the Arsenal fans left Bacary Sagna in no doubt how much we want him to sign a new contract and stay at the Emirates.
It could turn out to be a good thing that Arsenal did not spend all the money available last summer. And we Arsenal fans might soon be thanking Arsene Wenger for keeping his wallet tightly closed in the January transfer window. That is because, even if he does decide to force his way out of [...]
I really hope that Arsene Wenger was merely trying to throw people off the track of what Arsenal are planning to do in the transfer market, when he claimed that he did not expect much business to be done early on this summer. Because if he was serious, I think he may have misjudged the [...]
Those of you Arsenal fans who are long time readers of this site, will know what I think about the views regularly trawled out by the former Arsenal man Stewart Robson. The midfielder played 150 league games for the Gunners during his five year stint, but he never misses an opportunity to criticise and stick [.
It seems there is no doubt at all in the minds of the Arsenal hierarchy that Arsene Wenger is the man to bring the glory days back to the Gunners. The fact that a contract offer has been on the table for some time shows that Silent Stan Kroenke, Ivan Gazidis, Sir Chips Keswick and [...]
Right then Arsenal fans, is your glass half full of half empty? Do you think the Gunners blew a brilliant chance to win the Premier League, or are you happy that we picked up the FA cup to end the trophy drought? Whichever is the overriding feeling for each Gooner, we probably agree on one [...]
As happy Arsenal thoughts turn to the summer transfer window and what the club needs to do to ensure this cup victory was just the first of many, a top class striker is top of many Gooners' wish list. It seems as though the favourite, judging by the comments on this site, is the Real [...]
FA Cup win must be a springboard to success by Konstantin Good times to be a gooner. A trophy finally. And you can immediately see what it meant to everyone at Arsenal. The players were so happy, that's what they play for. To tell the story of how they won trophies. You could just see [...]
The little Mexican Carlos Vela has been away in Spain for three years, and his form has made him into a valuable player for Real Sociedad, but now he thinks it is time for him to return to Arsenal for the ridiculous fee of just 4m euros. In fact Vela thinks it "would not be [...]
After the Gunners great day at Wembley, the Arsenal players can forget about club matters for a while as they head off on holiday or join up with their international team mates to prepare for the World Cup finals in Brazil. But that does not mean that Arsenal Football Club can take a break. It [...]
As Arsenal fans celebrate a long awaited FA cup trophy and everyone connected with the club starts to look to the future with renewed confidence and optimism, it looks like Chelsea may have taken advantage of Arsene Wenger's deliberations and snapped up two of the strikers that were reportedly on the Gunners' list of possible [.
Stop, with the hate! Celebrate the win! By Byron This article is dedicated to all of my fellow Gooners. It is the article that should have been written on Cup Final Day...... My Fellow Gooners, CONGRATULATIONS, FEEL the elation, the joy and the excitement!!! That cathartic feeling you have is the bedrock of Championship football.
Maybe it is my memory playing tricks on me, because it is a long time since Arsenal won their last trophy, not including the Emirates cup or the Wenger trophy of course, but it seemed to me that there was a lot more emotion than usual from the Prof. It looked like there was as [...]
It seems a little bit unfair to me. After all, Arsenal have only got Olivier Giroud as a realistic first choice central striker, while Liverpool have two of this Premier League season's top scorers already in Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge. So it strikes me as annoying and greedy that the Anfield mob are planning [.
There is still a chance that Arsenal will still have Bacary Sagna playing at right back when next season kicks off in August, but it is unlikely. An FA cup trophy and all the celebrations that come with it might help, and the French international may not get the bumper offer he was hoping for, [...]
There is a very interesting Arsenal rumour this morning from the respected English newspaper The Guardian, that states that Arsene Wenger is set to take advantage of James Milner's unhappy status at moneybags Manchester City. The midfielder is unhappy at being forced to play in wide positions for City and is looking for a club [.
Before I get to the biggest moment of the season which was on the 17th of May, a day which I think will never be forgotten because of its significance, I will take you through six of my favourite Arsenal moments last season. by Lloyd S. 1. Arsenal 1-0 Tottenham,1 Sep 2013 This was a [...]
Saturday's FA cup final triumph may turn out to be a bittersweet memory for a few of the Arsenal team, as it could also turn out to be the final game in a Gunners shirt for them as well as a happy one because of the winners medal. We have all been hoping that Bacary [...]
Yaya Sanogo has already had some bad luck with injuries in his young football career, but just like his Arsenal team mates Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere, the French striker has not let it get him down. Sanogo seems to have a great attitude and judging by his antics while celebrating the FA cup final [.
What cannot Kill ya, Will only make ya Stronger Arsenal fans by Popeye786Sailor ET 108` Giroud's back heel to Ramsey and it looks like Ramsey is going to find a way through the Hull defense and oh man, he scores a killer. Arsenal are on course to go back to glory days, thus ending the [...]
Did you really think it would be easy Arsenal fans? The Gunners had been talking all week about coping with the pressure and learning from the mistakes made against Birmingham City at Wembley three years ago. But that failure in the league cup was always going to increase the pressure on this current crop of [.
In all the excitement of Arsenal making an amazing comeback in the FA cup final yesterday, finally bringing the long wait for a trophy to an end, you may have missed this interesting little side show. As the players were celebrating, the BT sport presenters were discussing the game and other things and there was [.
Many people, including me, thought that this season offered Arsenal a unique opportunity. With Man City, Chelsea and United all going through changes of varying degrees of magnitude, and the Gunners finally coming out of the tunnel that paying off the Emirates stadium had plunged us into, Arsenal had a golden chance to capitalise.
I cannot believe that some Arsenal fans are still not happy after winning the FA cup. And poor old Arsene Wenger is the top target foe abuse again. Okay the Gunners made it hard work for themselves with a dreadful start, but how is that the manager's fault? Do you think he spent all week [...]
Arsenal 3 – 2 Hull City FA cup final Player Ratings by KJ Fabianski – 6 He was poor today. He wasn't commanding during set pieces and that definitely unsettled the defence which allowed Hull to blow us away early on. He almost lost us the game in the final moments with a headless dash [...]
Arsenal fought back against Hull to earn the FA Cup Winners medals yesterday, but it seems there was little help towards that from our 42.5million record signing Mesut Ozil. The German international was bought to be a catalyst for a torrent of goals from our strikers, providing numerous incisive passes which would split opposing defenses [.
Wow, how tense was that for Arsenal and their fans? But the vital statistics were 3-2. History will show that Arsenal Football Club won the FA cup in 2014 and that is what matters. Maybe the way the Gunners dug in and came back from the most testing of situations will matter as well. I [...]
Well Arsenal fans, as nightmare starts go, that was a real belter. The Arsenal players might as well have been sitting in the stands watching, as we hardly had a kick before Hull took an early lead from a corner. And the Gunners were still sleepily yawning and rubbing sleep out of their eyes when [..
FA cup anyone? There are few, if any, surprises in the Arsenal starting XI that Arsene Wenger has picked to go and reclaim some glory for the Gunners. The main question was who was going to start in goal, but after his semi-final heroics in the penalty shoot out, nobody will begrudge Lukasz Fabianski getting [.
One of the greatest Arsenal legends of all time, Tony Adams, says that Arsene Wenger not only believes that his current squad can win today's FA Cup Final, but thinks they can go on and win the one trophy that has eluded him in his career, The Champions League. Adams, also known as Mr Arsenal [...]
Arsene Wenger clearly keeps a close eye on Spain's La Liga and Spanish players everywhere as he looks for potential Arsenal transfers. The Gunners already have three Spaniards in the first team and others coming through the youth system, while Cesc Fabregas is one of the best and most popular players the club has had [.
You didn't think it would be easy did you Arsenal fans? If the stories in the media are true and Arsenal have got Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema on their transfer wish list for this summer, it is going to be another long drawn out saga and there are some serious obstacles in our way. [...]
There have been some suggestions in the media that Arsenal are not giving their FA cup final opponents the respect they should. I feel that most of the media would love it if the Gunners slipped up. It would give them lots of things to write about and would enable them to keep banging on [...]
Arsenal vs Hull City FA cup final Preview, Line up and Predicted score by KJ This is it. This is the moment we all Arsenal fans have been waiting for. Our chance to finally end our trophy drought. We've had the opportunities before but have bottled them (especially against Birmingham). However, this is a completely [.
All Arsenal fans are well aware that Lukasz Fabianski is leaving the club next week, but many of us think that he deserves to be playing in the Cup Final anyway, especially after his penalty heroics in the semi-final against Wigan. Wenger played Fab in last weeks non-game in the League, and some suggested he [.
So the day has finally come and Arsenal have their best chance of winning a trophy in nine long years. We will all be suffering the longer we have to wait for Arsenal's first goal, but we are all going to give you a chance to enjoy the fun more by winning a limitedc edition [...]
The ex-Hull City striker Dean Windass, who at the age of 39 famously scored the goal at Wembley that gave the Tigers their first every entry into the Premier League, is insisting that Hull can win their first FA Cup against Arsenal tomorrow. He rightly says that in the Cup all form goes out the [...]
Alan Smith scored 87 goals in his eight years with Arsenal and won numerous trophies including The Double and the European Cup-Winners Cup with the Gunners, so he has earned the right to have an opinion about our beloved club now and again. Well today he suggests that Arsene Wenger is making a big mistake [.
Mesut Ozil has already played a significant part in Arsenal reaching the FA cup final and having a fantastic opportunity to get the trophy that could lead to a new era of Gunners glory. Before he picked up an injury away to Bayern Munich, the German international signed off with the crucial opening goal and [.
There could be a number of long serving Arsenal players leaving the club this summer, as there have been almost every summer in recent years. This time could be different, though, as the likes of Bacary Sagna, Lukasz Fabianski and Thomas Veremaelen could have a nice shiny FA cup winners medal to show for their [.
Things seem to be on the up for Arsenal. Now the sting of seeing the Premier League title challenge falter after a fantastic start has eased off a bit, we are looking ahead to a Wembley final with a great chance to put the silverware stress to one side and lead to some great years [...]
Although Thomas Vermaelen has declared that he is fully focused on getting Arsenal their first trophy in nearly a decade, the subject of his future will not go away. With a year left on his contract, it does seem that the Arsenal captain will either be persuaded to sign a new contract or sold this [.
Every single transfer window Arsenal fans sit back and wait for the rumour that we are going to try and sign the ex-Chelsea supersub Salamon Kalou, and the first link has come in today from the Star. They reckon that Wenger tried to get him on loan in January (and every other transfer window!) and [.
The ageing Mikel Arteta, who is entering the last year of his contract at Arsenal, is well aware that Arsene Wenger is in not in the habit of giving long contracts to players over 30 (Arteta was 32 in March) The Spaniard will be having contract talks with this summer and he is adamant that [...]
It has been widely reported that Carlos Vela will be returning to Arsenal this summer to begin part two of his Premier League adventure, and this is one transfer rumour that seems certain to come off. And as well as rejoining some of his old team mates, the 25-year old could soon be joined by [...]
I don't even want to think about what will happen if Hull City repeat the feat of Birmingham City in 2011 by denying Arsenal against all odds and beating us in a Wembley final. We know it could happen though and, according to vatious reports in the media, it could have big repercussions. Some people [.
I know that some Arsenal fans would like Arsene Wenger to start Yaya Sanogo instead of Olivier Giroud on Saturday, but unless he picks up an injury in training this week or eats a dodgy Lasagne, it will be Giroud leading the line against Hull City at Wembley. And although the big striker is well [...
It is a noble tradition in football, in England at least, that almost all of the neutral fans will support the under dog, especially in a game like the FA cup final. So you would think that Arsenal fans would be the only people wanting the Gunners to get a victory over Hull City at [...]
All the national team managers have named their provisional squads for the World Cup, all the ones that affect Arsenal at least, and there are not too many surprises as to which Gunners are going. But how will the tournament in Brazil affect the players that go, and what about those with the disappointment of [.
Hello Arsenal fans. We hear a lot about the Premier League being the best league in the world, and I believe that the competitive nature of it, the energy and passion make this true, but with two teams from La Liga contesting this season's Champions League final and two from the German Bundesliga last year, [.
There have been a lot of rumours and speculation about the Arsenal captain this season, with many suggesting that Thomas Vermaelen could be leaving the Emirates during the summer transfer window. And if that is true, it means that the FA cup final on Saturday could be his last game for the club, so the [.
The big Arsenal transfer rumour this morning is from the Telegraph, who reckon that Karim Benzema from Real Madrid is Arsene Wenger's top target this summer. The French international has been in fine form this season, but only has one year left on his contract at the Bernabeau and is expected to be supplanted by [.
Arsenal Players at the World Cup betting summary There will be 10 Gunners on the way to Brazil this summer and there are plenty of World Cup betting markets surrounding those players and their nations. Easyodds.com football writer Tom Powell takes a look back at Arsenal men in past World Cup squads and assesses [.
The 25th of March was bad day for Arsenal Football Club and the fans. Coming off the disastrous pasting by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in what was supposed to be a landmark day on Arsene Wenger's 1000th game, the game on that Tuesday, when a late own goal by Mathieu Flamini gave Swansea a draw [...]
The game at Wembley on Saturday could be said to be the most Important that Arsenal have faced in years. Arsene Wenger has guided the Gunners to two major finals since last winning the FA cup in 2005, but we have lost them both for one reason or another, which puts even greater pressure on [...]
It is not quite a knockout blow to Arsenal's transfer pursuit of Bayern Munich's Spanish star, but it is certainly quite a big blow to our chances. The speculation was that Arsenal were among a number of clubs chasing Javi Martinez, because there was a strong suspicion that he was not happy with his lot [.
As soon as Carlos Vela suggested recently that he was not averse to a return to the Premier League, I felt that it was only a matter of time before Arsenal moved in. And it appears that Arsene Wenger has wasted little time, according to reports from Spain. Metro is reporting that it has learned [...]
It was widely reported that Arsenal were close to the transfer of the pacy Argentina international Angel Di Maria last summer. But as we all know, it did not happen, although Arsene Wenger did manager to sign his Real Madrid team mate Mesut Ozil, smashing the club's previously piddling transfer record in the process.
Sayonara Sagna by Big Gun Bacary Sagna has finally made a decision to leave Arsenal. Originally, it was rumoured he would only make that choice after competing in the World Cup with France, who are 25/1 outsiders for the competition. If you are thinking of having a flutter in advance then make sure you check [.
I don't suppose we should be too surprised that Arsenal players figure strongly in the best XI of all the London clubs in the Premier League, because Arsenal did spend almost more time at the top of the table than all of our rivals put together. But the PFA Premier League team of the Year [...]
One top striker already on the plane to Chelsea, are Arsenal really going to compete to sign a world class striker or is there a better option? I'm by no means writing this as a negative post but with so few world class strikers available and so many teams in need, is it reality to [...]
Cheikou Kouyate has been the subject of many Arsenal transfer rumours over the course of the last few years, but now it seems we have concrete evidence that we are now enquiring about his availability. His agent Saffett Balkan was quoted as saying: "I have met representatives from Arsenal and West Ham over Kouyaté in [.
The subject of Arsenal, the trophy drought and the shock defeat by Birmingham City in our last major final was bound to come up, and will do many times before Arsenal run out on to the Wembley turf on Saturday. And it is no surprise that Arsene Wenger is not all that keen on focusing [...]
If Arsenal do win the battle to snap up Jason Eyenga-Lokilo, it will be a significant coup for the Gunners. It will also be another ringing endorsement of the Arsenal youth system and the reputation that Arsene Wenger has for bringing on and developing promising young players. This is because the highly rated 15-year old [.
Looking at the number of clubs that Dean Windass has played for, it seems as if Arsenal are in the minority by never having had the powerful striker on their books. He is most linked to our FA cup final opponents Hull City, having spent the first five years of his professional career with them [...]
Arsene Wenger is well known for being partial to a bit of versatility in his Arsenal players. He has also been known to, or accused of, playing players out of position, but the Frenchman has got nothing on Barcelona, especially when it comes to defenders. One of the reasons they signed the former Gunner Alex [.
There is bound to be a lot said in the media and on telly this week in the build up to the FA cup final at Wembley on Saturday. The Arsenal players would be better off not watching or reading any of it, because it is all going to be about pressure, and it is [...]
I am sure there are plenty of TV pundits and people in the media who will be keen to point out the negatives for Arsenal at the end of another season, especially if we fluff our lines again and fail to win the FA cup. But Arsene Wenger is understandably keen to dwell on the [...]
The French striker Loic Remy, who famously was at the Emirates to watch Arsenal a couple of weeks ago, is apparently close to a move to the Spuds according to a report in the Daily Star. They reckon that Spurs have already started negotiations with his parent club, QPR, and a transfer fee has already [.
Last season Arsene Wenger made a big deal of Arsenal signing up his young British talents on long-term contracts, saying that they were going to be the çore'of the side that were going to go on to great things. Wenger said last December: "We are delighted that these five young players have all signed new [.
You cou8ld feel the delight and relief pouring out of Carl Jenkinson in equal measures as he ran to celebrate with the Arsenal fans after scoring his debut Gunners goal. The young Englishman's finish may not have been comparable to Ramsey's wonder volley, but he was in the right place at the right time and [.
Earlier in the season, when quite a few Arsenal fans were calling for Arsene Wenger to step down or be sacked, one of the names that was being suggested as a possible replacement was that of Roberto Martinez. The Spaniard looked for a while like he was going to steer his Everton side into the [...]
Interesting details about UEFA qualifications involving English teams this season by G.S. Hello Arsenal fans. I read the UEFA guidelines for qualification for its Champions (UCL) and Europa (UEL) Leagues recently. I had initially read them about a couple of years ago and thought I'd familiarise myself with those terms again.
The German international striker Lukas Podolski has played a big part in getting Arsenal over the line and into the Champions League for next season. His spurt of goals came just at the right time, when our confidence was rock bottom and our Wenger trophy was under serious threat from Everton, but the 28-year old [.
Have we actually improved this season? by KM So the season ends and Arsenal finishes, once again, fourth. I don't like the whole "if at the start of the season you knew you would finish 4th and be in the fa cup final would you take it?" thing because first of all it isn't possible, [...]
The season is not quite over for Arsenal, with a showpiece Wembley final still to go, but as the Premier League and other leagues around Europe draw to a close, thoughts turn, as ever, to the transfer window. Arsene Wenger has already suggested to Arsenal fans that there would be little early action this summer, [.
£20 million is certainly within the transfer budget of Arsenal this summer and, although it would be the second highest fee that Arsene Wenger had ever paid, it would seem pretty cheap for a top class striker like Alexis Sanchez. But, according to a report in The Mirror, that is the price we are looking [.
My view ahead of summer transfer window by Blaz Fellow Gooners! Since more or less (more) everyone on this forum has his views about what Arsenal should/will do in the summer transfer window, here's also my opinion. Arsene said deals in a World Cup year are usually near the end. Well, not all countries will [.
Arsene Wenger has made no secret of his backing for the new FFP rules and he may soon be even happier about them if Arsenal qualify for next season's Champions League automatically, without having to undergo the inconvenience, stress and extra strain on the squad that a two- legged play-off in August would bring.
It would have been very easy for the Arsenal players to slacken off once they knew that fourth place in the Premier League was secured. They all knew how important it was, for the club and the fans, as well as it being where every player wants to be. So the Wenger trophy was safe, [...]
It was great to have Aaron Ramsey back in the Arsenal team yesterday and no one was surprised to see the young Welshman sign off this Premier League season with another goal. The quality of it was stunning, with Ramsey's superb technique highlighted as he produced a thunderous volley from Giroud's excellent set-up.
Norwich 0 – 2 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Fabianski – 8 Didn't have much to do for the majority of the game but was forced into a few saves in the final 15 minutes as Norwich decided not to end their embarrassing season on a whimper. Jenkinson – 7 He played well on the [...]
All Arsenal fans know that Arsenal are ever going to buy a reasonably priced back up to Wojciech Szczesny rather than a top class replacement, and the only other sensible rumour for that position so far was the free transfer of Kaspar Schmeichel, although my opinion is that he will stay as first-choice at Leicester [.
Arsene Wenger made five changes to the Arsenal starting line-up for the last Premier League game of the season. With one eye on the FA cup final and a few players needing a bit of game time, Fabianski, Gibbs, Ramsey, Rosicky and Jenkinson came in. Mertesacker and Cazorla were rested completely. The changes did not [.
Arsene Wenger has had a few decisions to make as Arsenal go into the final day with nothing to play for except momentum and confidence. So it is no surprise to see that the Frenchman has made a few changes to his starting XI. With Wojcicech Szczesny needing one more clean sheet to win the [...]
If the general consensus is right and Bacary Sagna does decide on a new club this summer, Arsenal will need a right back. And to replace the Frenchman, with all his experience, talent and versatility, will not be easy. So when you hear that one of the best full backs in the world is available, [...]
I will not be a happy little Arsenal fan if we allow Tottenham to swoop in and sign the French international striker Loic Remy from under our noses. But that is what is on the cards unless Arsene Wenger gets his finger out and does something about it. Metro is reporting that the top spud, [...]
Norwich vs Arsenal Preview, Line up and predicted score by KJ This is our final league game of the 2013/2014 season and there's very little riding on it. Arsenal have already qualified for the Champions league (although we have to negotiate the qualifier in August) and the players will have one eye on the game [.
Although it is hardly an unconfirmed rumour that the new contract talks with Bacary Sagna have not been going well, Arsenal fans may be wondering why the French defender has decided to confirm his departure on the eve of the last game of the season, especially with the FA Cup Final looming in a weeks [.
Sunday is always my favourite day for Arsenal transfer rumours as the weekend tabloids fill their numerous sports pages with any old crap to annoy real football fans! To start with, the Mirror is reporting that Arsenal could be going after Barcelona's flying winger Alexis Sanchez. He has had a brilliant season with the Catalan [.
The Arsenal players, like Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud, have been saying all the right things this week about not taking their foot off the gas. They are keen to finish the Premier League season strongly in order to keep the confidence building and the results rolling into next weekend, when the Gunners have a [.
You might have to bear with me on this one, Arsenal fans. Because I am not talking about a player of the same standard as Sol Campbell, who famously left Tottenham for Arsenal and became a fantastic player for us, helping the Gunners to three FA cups and two titles, including the invincible season of [.
From first to fourth by Big Gun Where did it all go wrong for Arsenal this season? We were top of the league over December and looked more than capable of going all the way. As many pundits said at the time, Arsenal's title challenge should only be taken into account after facing the tougher [...]
If Arsene Wenger is going to continue to look to Germany to boost the Arsenal squad, it will certainly help that the Gunners already have three first team Germany internationals in the team. But that advantage could have been lessened by the well publicised struggles these players have had since moving to the Premier League.
Being realistic, it did seem that the reports suggesting Arsenal were hoping for success with a bid of around £20 million for the versatile Spanish international Javi Martinez were a bit on the optimistic side. And now it looks completely out of the question after La Liga giants Barcelona have placed him on their list [.
Most Arsenal fans are likely to agree that Loic Remy is the most likely striker to be playing at the Emirates next season, but that doesn't stop the Gunners being linked with all and sundry in the meantime. Today's Arsenal rumour is provided by TuttoMercatoWeb, who reckon that we are going head-to-head with Tottenham over [.
Okay everyone it is Arsenal's last game of the season so we will get the competition up early so to give every a chance to enter. I was shocked to find that no-one had predicted the 1-0 win over West Brom last week, so this week I am going to give EVERYONE that gets tomorrows [...]
Arsene Wenger is aiming to beat Norwich in the last game of the season so that Arsenal will finish on 79 points, and within a maximum 7 points of the Champions, whoever wins it. This year has been ultra-competitive and he feels that Liverpool and Man City deserve it because of the amount of goals [..
It seems that the situation with Arsenal and their soon to be out of contract defender Bacary Sagna is not as done and dusted as recent reports have made it seem. Arsene Wenger admitted this week that the decision was out of his hands, and the whole world seemed to expect the reliable right back [...
It is a shame that Arsene Wenger can only use three Arsenal substitutes in the final Premier League match of the season, because if he was allowed, I reckon that the Frenchman would be making about 10 against Norwich City. Start your best XI, get a nice half-time lead and bring on the reserves, if [.
It is a massive relief for Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger to have Aaron Ramsey back in the squad for the trip to face Norwich City in the final Premier League match of the season. Not that there is too much riding on the game, although it would be nice to finish six points better [...]
Despite Arsenal Football Club having coming through the lean years and not having to sell off the crown jewels any more, Gooners still have the twice yearly worry that some bigger fish, or shark, will come along and gobble up one or our stars. But we have one less thing to worry about today, as [...]
Hopefully Arsenal fans will have a warm glow in their hearts this summer. If the Gunners keep up their recent form for another eight days, we won't have to listen to every other pundit, commentator or interviewer trawling out their favourite line about, blah blah years without a trophy. And the players proved this season [.
First of all, I don't want to whinge, but I do want to say that I feel that Arsenal have been let down by the FA again. And this is not about the shortage of tickets for the FA cup final although that is ridiculous. This rule about video evidence and retrospective punishment is a [...]
The one good thing about this story, Arsenal fans, is that you should take every word that comes out of Arsene Wenger's mouth at the moment with a very large pinch of salt, especially when he is talking about the transfer window. But it is still a bit worrying to hear the Prof, in an [...]
We all know that a big part of Arsene Wenger's policy for Arsenal Football Club centres on youth, so you would probably think that the Frenchman would be pleased to hear about the new proposals set forward by the FA to give young players more chance to develop and break into the first team. But [...]
We all know that what Arsenal needs the most this summer is a World Class striker, but just as important right now is a tough tackling defensive midfielder to take some pressure of the ageing Mikel Arteta. Well according to a report in this mornings Daily Telegraph, the Gunners have contacted Bayern Munich regarding a [.
The England manager Roy Hodgson has told the world that his Brazil-bound squad will be picked on the players season-long form rather than the last few games of the season, and it is expected that Arsenal's Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be named in the early 30-man squad list. Neither of these youngsters have [.
It has been, at times, a difficult first season at Arsenal for Mesut Ozil. The former Real Madrid midfielder accepts that there have been some ups and downs along the way, but at least it seems to be finishing on the up. So Ozil has declared himself to be reasonably happy with how his first [...]
The Arsenal players know all about playing under pressure. At this time of the season, with just one Premier League game to go, the fans are usually wracked with nerves as our place in the Champions League teeters on the brink. Thankfully, we have always come through that tricky situation and do not have to [.
Arsenal had a great chance to win the Premier League this season, there is no doubt about it. But we were not the favourites back in August. That was Man City, who last night took advantage of their rivals' slips to get one hand on the trophy. In fact, many football experts suggested that this [...]
It was a sad sign of things to come for Arsenal, when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who had provided the assist for our first goal of the season, was ruled out after just one game and then spent around five months in the treatment room. And if that was disappointing for the team, it was even more [...]
I know that a lot of Arsenal fans are not that keen on Southampton's midfield general Morgan Schneiderlin. Not because he is not a good player, but more that he is just not the right pedigree for Arsenal, having come from France and working his way through the lower leagues with Southampton. But it appears [.
You can stop worrying Arsenal fans! Laurent `the boss` Koscielny is not going anywhere this summer, apart from Brazil to play in the World Cup and perhaps a holiday of course. But he will still be playing for the Gunners next season and for many years after that, according to a Metro report. The paper [.
It appears that Arsenal are going to be in for an exciting summer in the transfer market, with Arsene Wenger ready to sign a new contract and launch a serious challenge to the likes of Chelsea and Man City. The Gunners are in a great position financially, while our rivals are going to have to [...]
I am one of the many fans that have been calling for Arsenal to loosen up the purse strings in order to persuade Bacary Sagna to sign a new contract and stay at the Emirates stadium for a few more years. They have upped their offer, apparently, to around £75,000 a week and increased the [...]
Arsene Wenger has just one Premier League game left before the big one. I/m sure that the Frenchman already has a pretty good idea of his Arsenal starting line-up to run out at Wembley and try to finally add to that FA cup the Gunners won in 2005, but there will be some players hoping [...]
If Arsenal beat Hull City at Wembley in 10 days time and lift the FA cup trophy, it will end a nine year wait for a major trophy since Patrick Vieira scored the winning penalty in 2005 against Man United with his last kick as an Arsenal player. And it will give Arsenal a fine [...]
The Belgian prodigy Eden Hazard was linked with a move to Arsenal from when he was an immature youngster with Lille in the French Ligue 1, and every year as he improved Wenger was seemingly preparing to finally take him to the Emirates. But last summer the Belgian international finally revealed that he would be [.
We do not really know whether Arsene Wenger has got the same ideas as most of the Arsenal fans, but the general feeling is that the Frenchman is finally going to do what we have been crying out for him to do for some years, and sign a proper defensive midfielder. If so, Wenger will [...]
When Wojciech Szczesny tokk the now infamous selfie alongside his Arsenal team mates Kieran Gibbs and Lukas Podolski, the Polish keeper came in for a lot of criticism, but it was a big moment for him to celebrate. He had just recorded his 13th clean sheet in the Premier League, as the Gunners beat local [.
Some Arsenal fans think that, if Arsene Wenger and the club had been a bit more determined and offered Liverpool more money last summer, then Luis Suarez could have been playing his home games at the Emirates this season. And the way he has been playing, with 31 goals from just 32 Premier League games, [.
Loic Remy – Is he even worth the debate? by Usmanov Why should I write an article about a Newcastle United player? Even more so, on an Arsenal fan forum? Well maybe the answers to those questions lies in the fact that the player himself was spotted in the executive box of an Arsenal stadium! [...]
The long-running saga over Bacary Sagna's new contract has now taken a nasty turn according to a report in today's Star. it seems that the right-back is actively seeking a move to one of Arsenal's main rivals for the Premiership i.e. Chelsea or Manchester City, and the paper says they have a "source" close to [.
Arsene Wenger has managed to keep the Arsenal players focused, despite Everton's defeats by Southampton and Man City handing fourth spot to us. And if they can keep their heads down and win the final game, away to Norwich on Sunday, it will mean that the Gunners have really hit form at the right time, [.
Arsenal are probably going to have to go up against other clubs for most, if not all, of their summer transfer targets and it seemed like we had got off to a bad start before the transfer window was even open. But the transfer of Juan Cuadrado has not been sealed yet, so the Gunners [...]
With one Premier League game of the season left, it is a case of better late than never for Arsenal. After a couple of months out of action, Jack Wilshere is fit again and likely to feature against Norwich City at Carrow Road on Sunday. You have to wonder if things would have been different [...]
First of all Arsenal fans, it is almost certain that the player that was widely reported as being one of the top transfer targets for Arsene Wenger this summer, Lars Bender, will not be coming to play for Arsenal next season. The reason, however, is not what you would expect. The German international holding midfielder [.
We all know that Arsenal have been one of the biggest supporters of the new Financial Fair Play rules brought in by Eoropean football's governing body. And there is no doubt that Arsene Wenger and his way of doing business is pretty much the role model for clubs wanting to abide by the rules, which [.
With all of the problems that Arsenal have had with injuries this season, it was easy to forget that one player had been on the sidelines since before the end of the previous season. And, if Abou Diaby does not make it onto the pitch for the final Premier League game away to Norwich, or [...]
The Arsenal and Germany international Per Mertesacker has become one of the club's most important players, both on and off the pitch. The giant 29-year old has played more games than any of his Gunners team mates, but he has also become a leader, as was shown when he laid into Mesut Ozil for not [...
He has come a long way in his football career so far, but Arsenal must make sure that our superb central defender Laurent Koscielny does not go any further. According to rumours from Spain, that may not be easy, as the Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid, who seem to have an unlimited supply of [...]
It is not the first time that Arsenal have been linked with the 22 year-old Cristian Tello from Barcelona, but this time it seems certain that the fledgling Spanish International will definitely be leaving the Catalan club this summer. A report in todays Daily Express says that Tello has told the club to let him [.
Now we are approaching the end of the season and the transfer window is approaching rapidly, it is time to check out which of the numerous Arsenal transfer rumours are likely to be the most true. My personal favourite way is to look at all the best betting sites to see who the bookies have [...]
Arsene Wenger could easily have rung the changes in the Arsenal team yesterday. Because Everton had lost to Man City, the Gunners were assured of the Wenger trophy and there was no realistic chance of us leapfrogging Chelsea for third place. So with all the problems we have had with injuries this season, the boss [.
Arsenal fans have two more games to enjoy before the usual frustration, pain and tension of the transfer window sets in. We are all hoping for a better summer of signings, but perhaps just as important is holding on to our players, with Wenger still hoping to persuade Bacary Sagna and Lukasz Fabianski to sign [.
I sometimes wonder if there are two Olivier Girouds playing for Arsenal Football Club, because it is hard to reconcile the praise that the big striker gets from the media, his manager and team mates, with the abuse he gets from the fans. Even that does not really add up, because we sing his name [...
I think it is fair to say that some Arsenal fans are not the biggest fans of Olivier Giroud. But those who are not keen on Giroud may just have to get used to the idea that the big French striker is going nowhere, fast, or as fast as he can manage anyway. The 27-year [...]
According to Arsene Wenger, it was a complete coincidence that Loic Remy was at the Emirates stadium to watch Arsenal beat West Bromwich Albion today, honest guv. The Frenchman was asked about the QPR, Newcastle and France striker today, with the media latching on to his presence as a possible sign that Arsenal would be [.
I would hesitate to say that Arsenal's star player and their French manager are on a collision course over the tactical side of the Gunners' game, because Aaron Ramsey clearly has huge respect for and belief in Arsene Wenger. And the feeling is mutual, as the Prof proved by sticking with the Welshman early last [.
Although this is the second time that Arsene Wenger has confirmed he is staying at Arsenal, most pundits refuse to accept the fact until he actually signs the contract that has been offered by the Board. Most of us assume that he will put pen to paper after the Gunners have won the FA Cup [...]
Arsenal 1 v 0 West Bromwich Albion Match Report Infographic by allArsenal.com Arsenal, securing fourth spot thanks to Everton's loss on Saturday, claimed all three points in a relatively straight forward win over the Baggies. West Brom had some half-chances but the Gunners should have finished them off well and truly beyond the match winner [.
The appearance of Loic Remy in the crowd at yesterdays Arsenal win over West Brom has fuelled the ongoing rumours that the Gunners are willing to match the buy-out clause in the Frenchmans QPR contract, but the Mirror reported that Wenger could also go for another proven Premiership striker in the shape of Wilfried Bony [.
Just about a year ago, one of the most positions that Arsenal fans were expecting to be strengthened in the summer transfer window was the goalkeeper. Lukasz Fabianski has performed well when called on, but there were still real doubts about Wojciech Szczesny, who had been dropped after a number of high profile and costly [.
It seems that the blazing English sun has started to get to one or two football journalists. Either that or they just fancied making something up to make the Arsenal fans spit their morning cup of tea all over the newspaper. The latest Arsenal transfger rumour, if you can call it that, as reported by [.
Arsenal 1 – 0 West Brom Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 7 He was generally good today. Didn't really have any saves to make. It was comfortable throughout the match and WBA didn't threaten our goal. Sagna – 8 (MOTM) He was very composed today on and off the ball. He was defensively strong [...]
You get the feeling that Arsenal's midfield dynamo Aaron Ramsey would like to have given Paul Scholes a similar sort of verbal attack to that which the former Man United and England man dished out to Arsenal recently. But the young Welshman seems to have a bit more class than Scholes and confined himself to [.
Arsene Wenger has always been prudent with Arsenal's finances and supported the idea of Financial Fair Play ever since the idea was first aired, but now it has been implemented Wenger wants gigantic fines imposed to deter clubs from breaking the rules again and again. ‘There are rules to apply for financial fair play,' said [.
This is the sort of Arsenal transfer rumour that many young Gooners drool over, but us oldies are a bit more circumspect and cynical, knowing that the chances of it coming off are minimal. But with Wenger's new spending power perhaps there is a chance that he may spend half his "100million warchest" on the [.
Arsenal have already won the Wenger Trophy and can now concentrate on preparing for the FA Cup Final at the end of the season, but Arsene Wenger has already stated that he will be aiming to win our last couple of games anyway to keep the momentum going. So we are all hoping for a [...]
Arsenal vs West Bromwich Albion Preview, Line up and predicted score by KJ I'm writing this article knowing the result between City and Everton (3-2 to City). That means we'll go into tomorrow knowing our top 4 status is already secured and hopefully we can finally rest certain players now before the FA cup final [.
It is a strange one for Arsenal fans, but we have got reason to be happy today. The Gunners go into their last two Premier League games already assured of a Champions League place for next season, because of Everton's defeat by Man City, and we still have the FA Cup Final to look forward [...]
It could be a strange feeling for the Arsenal team today, knowing that they have already secured fourth place due to Everton's loss at home to Man City yesterday. But it is the final game of the season at the Emirates stadium, and the fans will be happy that there is no pressure on and [...]
Although Arsenal were already assured of finishing in fourth, with third place a mathematical possibility but needing a miracle collapse from Chelsea, the manager decided to go with a strong starting XI. Aaron Ramsey had apparently picked up a slight knock and was rested, but apart from him and Kieran Gibbs, it was probably the [.
I know that Arsene Wenger has suggested this weekend that Arsenal are unlikely to be completing any of their transfer business before the World Cup finishes in mid-July, but quite frankly I do not believe him. I am sure that he would love to make at least one of his signings before all the international [.
When Carlos Vela finally left Arsenal on a permanent basis, after a number of loan deals in Spain and England, it did not look like he would ever be coming back. Seven years with the Arsenal seemed like plenty of time for Arsene Wenger to decide whether he would make it as a Gunner or [...]
There is no doubt that Arsene Wenger enjoys a very good relationship with his players. We are always hearing former Arsenal stars, like Samir Nasri recently, praising the Frenchman and crediting him with making them the players are as well as being like a father figure. For Arsenal fans, however, this friendly relationship seems to [.
For all of those Arsenal fans who have had enough of the French manager Arsene Wenger, there is another reason to think again. The undisputed star of the season for Arsenal, despite over three months on the sidelines with injury, is Aaron Ramsey, and the young Welshman has plonked himself firmly on the side of [.
It appears as though the FA cup semi-final was a bit of a watershed moment for Arsenal. The nerves were very apparent against Wigan Athletic at Wembley, but the loads showed great character and eventually blasted through the penalty shoot out. Club captain Thomas Vermaelen played in that game and the Belgian defender reckons that [.
When we look at the season overall, and wonder why Arsenal, having led the way for so long, saw their title challenge collapse, many will point to the injuries, or the three damaging defeats away to Man City, Liverpool and Chelsea. But Arsene Wenger has another theory. The Frenchman has suggested the theory that the [.
It seems bizarre that Arsenal could even be thinking about signing the young German international Mario Gotze this summer, bit that surprise could actually be on the cards as the talented player has grown increasingly frustrated with his chances under Pep Guardiola and may be on the move at the end of the season.
Arsenal must get Connor Wickham or someone else will! By Twig One of Wenger's trademarks is the ability to spot young and obscure talents and mould them into fine footballers with Arsenal. He did it with Nikolas Anelka, Thierry Henry and quite recently with Theo Walcott. It must also be the motivation behind the signing [.
Arsenal fans will be thinking that this transfer window is set to be as frustrating as every other one after listening to Arsene Wenger's statements in the Guardian yesterday. He has said that there will only be two or three signings coming in, and he doesn't expect any action until after the end of the [.
The current Arsenal captain, Thomas Vermaelen, was just 24-years old when he signed on for the Gunners, but he had already spent six seasons with Ajax in the Dutch Eredivisie, notching up 130 appearances for the club and becoming captain in his final season. Ajax, currently managed by Frank de Boer with Dennis Berkamp as [.
If Arsenal are to complete the transfer of one of their top summer targets, they are going to have to do a lot better against the Serie A club Napoli than they did last summer. We were linked for a long time with the signing of the Argentina international Gonzalo Higuain from Real Madrid and, [...]
One of the most painful things for Arsenal fans in recent years is, of course, losing our best players. The likes of Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira left the Gunners, knowing that Arsene Wenger was facing some lean years, financially speaking, while the Emirates stadium was paid off. Then Cesc Fabregas eventually left to rejoin [.
Will this be another awful transfer window for Arsenal?! by Blaz Season is slowly but surely coming to an end. Three more competitive matches and that's that. Fourth place and FA cup glory. And after that, the time Arsenal fans dread the most the summer transfer window. The winter one tends to be good [.
The good news for Arsene Wenger is that he is not going to find it difficult to pick the Arsenal starting line-up to face Pepe Mel's West Brom at the Emirates on Sunday. The bad news is that the reason the Frenchman will find it so easy is because he has not got a lot [...]
Barcelona midfielder and former favourite son of Arsenal, Cesc Fabregas, could spark a bidding war between Arsene Wenger's side and the Manchester clubs. Barcelona are reportedly ready to listen to offers for the 26-year old whose return to the Catalan club has not been as rosy as he expected. He was booed by the home [.
Whereas may people have criticised Arsenal and Arsene Wenger for not spending money in recent years, others point to the Frenchman as being the ideal model for a modern club. The Gunners are run in a financially sustainable way, something that the powers that be in football supposedly want all clubs to do, in order [.
It seems Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Lars Bender has emerged as Arsene Wenger's top transfer target. It has been obvious for a while that we need a midfield enforcer who will ensure we are not overrun in the middle of the park especially against the other big teams of the Barclays Premier League. Our early-season title [.
Real Madrid may or may not sell Karim Benzema to Arsenal. It depends on them getting in their own transfer target, only then would they consider selling the Frenchman to one of his numerous suitors. Real want the EPL player of the year, Luis Suarez but will settle on Manchester City's Sergio Aguero if Liverpool [.
The England coach Roy Hodgson has assured Arsenal's very own Jack Wilshere that he will be on the plane to Brazil in June. Hodgson said in a report in the Daily Mail that the squad will include players that got England to the Championship and new faces are unlikely. He said: 'Wilshere has been training [.
Complacency once again by Big Gun It seems after reading many of the recent comments, Arsenal fans are happy once again to be in 4th place, completely ignorant of the fact that if certain actions were taken at the right time this season, we could well be top of the table in contention for the [...]
Although he has had to endure two long spells on the Arsenal sidelines with injury this season, it is not fair to describe the England international Theo Walcott as injury prone. He has often picked up little minor knocks, because of his speed making opposing players foul him, but he has worked on his strength [.
And no, Arsenal fans, I am not talking about a different Henry, I am talking about Thierry the King. Amazingly enough, Giroud needs just one goal to equal the second season goal tally of the great Henry, and two to beat it. With four games left and Arsenal in good form, that is a serious [...]
With Lukasz Fabianski set to leave Arsenal this summer and Emilio Viviano possibly set to rejoin his parent club Palermo in Italy, it is certain that Arsene Wenger will have a backup for Wojciech Szczesny as a priority as soon as the transfer window opens. Well according to a report in the Express, Wenger is [.
Joel Campbell will celebrate his 22nd birthday next month, and a couple of months after that, it will be three years since he signed for Arsenal Football Club. He may even have played for the Gunners by then as well, in a pre-season friendly, as he is set to end his loan spell with the [...]
