There are still a few days of the January transfer window left for Arsene Wenger to add another player or two to his Arsenal squad, but he strongly suggested in his press conference today, available on Arsenal Player, that it would not be happening. The Frenchman said, "It looks very unlikely." Making a joke about [.
Arsene Wenger did not come right out and say that our new Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista, signed from the Spanish club Villarreal for an undisclosed fee this week, would not be in the Arsenal starting line-up that runs out on to the Emirates pitch to face Aston Villa on Sunday. But when you look at [.
There will be a lot of pressure on the young shoulders of Francis Coquelin between now and the rest of the season, especially if Arsenal do not sign the top class central midfielder that many were expecting from Arsene Wenger in the January transfer window. It does look increasingly like the Gunners have wrapped up [.
All Arsenal fans should be crossing their fingers and toes and anything else that might be crossable in the hope that Alexis Sanchez is available to play on Sunday. The Chile international is currently a doubt for the home Premier League game with Aston Villa and so Arsene Wenger will now be thinking about how [.
Arsenal fans should appreciate Arsene more by Sam P The section of the Arsenal fans that are fed up with Arsene Wenger and keep asking for the club to move on and get a new manager have gone a little bit quiet at the minute. They do make some good points and it will not [...]
Arsenal face a home tie against lowly Aston Villa on Sunday, and this is he sort of game that the Gunners cannot afford to drop points in as the race for the Top Four hots up. Man United, who currently hold the coveted Fourth place are nearly guaranteed three points on Saturday in their match [...]
The arrival of the Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista will be an immediate boost to the Arsenal team, as the players he could replace will all have to up their game to try and hang on to their starting places. Wenger put them on the alert straight away when he suggested that Paulista could even [...
Although it has not been confirmed yet ob the official Arsenal website, it appears that our young French midfield warrior Francis Coquelin has now removed any lingering doubts about his commitment to the club by signing a four year contract extension to his current deal which was due to expire at the end of this [.
Arsene Wenger has given the Arsenal fans all the latest on the injured Gunners during the press conference ahead of the Premier League clash with Aston Villa at the Emirates on Sunday. You can see the whole thing on Arsenal Player but I am just looking at what the manager revealed about the injury situation [.
It was widely thought that Mikel Arteta would fall foul or Arsenal's 'Curse of the captain's armband' when Arsene Wenger picked him as Club Captain on the departure of Thomas Vermaelen, especially as he is 32 years old and his contract was reported to be up at the end of this season. When Arteta then [.
Arsene Wenger has revealed that Arsenal are sweating on the fitness os our star of the season so far Alexis Sanchez. A blow does not quite cover this news for Arsenal fans, it is more like a hurricane. The manager's latest injury update, revealed on the official Arsenal website, explains that the Chile international forward, [.
Arsenal are looking good to complete our usual job of finishing above north London rivals Tottenham in the Premier League, as we have done every season since Arsene Wenger took over as manager 18 years ago. And as well as sticking that particular knife in, we could give it a good twist by completing a [.
I don't know about the rest of you Arsenal fans out there, but I was just starting to get a little concerned about the delay that was holding up the completion of the transfer of Gabriel Paulista from Villarreal in Spain's La Liga, especially with the work permit issues. But the official Arsenal website has [.
Okay Arsenal fans, we might still have a nice surprise in store from Arsene Wenger in the last few days of the January transfer window, but if not then we have at least signed a promising young defensive midfielder in Krystian Bielik and what seems to be a very good and versatile defender in Gabriel [.
It seems that there have been Arsenal transfer rumours linking the Gunners with Karim Benzema ever since he burst onto the scene ten years ago at Lyon, and it hasn't changed now after he has been at Real Madrid for the last five years. Many Arsenal fans have been clamouring for Arsene Wenger to buy [.
Arsene Wenger famously made a concerted effort to bring Luis Suarez to Arsenal 18 months ago, although the strange rumours about the Gunners offering Liverpool 40m plus 1 pound sounded extremely far-fetched at the time but is now taken as true. The Telegraph is claiming that Wenger tried again to sign Suarez in the summer, [.
If this deal does go through in the next few days, and the growing number of Arsenal transfer rumours suggest that there is something to it at least, it will be the third bit of business done by Arsene Wenger and would surely be the final move from the Gunners this month. It would also [...]
I wrote an article last week explaining why I thought Wojciech Szczesny should come back into the Arsenal starting line-up for the FA cup clash away to Brighton on Sunday. Whether Arsene Wenger brought the Polan international back for the same reasons, we don't know, but I thought it was a great chance for Szczesny [.
If I was the Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini, I would be a bit worried right about now. Everything seems to be going against the tough tackling Frenchman, at least as far as his continued career as an Arsenal player goes anyway. It is bad enough for Flamini that the football media constantly report Arsenal transfer [.
Arsenal can still catch Chelsea! by Sam P Arsene Wenger and his players, along with all the Arsenal fans, should be backing the current Premier League champions Manchester City on Saturday evening, if only for a couple of hours. Because they could do us a big favour by putting another dent in the armour of [.
The Arsenal and England international star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been speaking about two of his recently returned team mates and has been nothing but fulsome in his praise. But I am not sure that I would be singing the praises of Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil quite so much if I was him, because these [.
I know that I am second guessing the Arsenal starting line0up for Sunday's Premier League clash with Aston Villa here, but everything seems to be pointing towards the Frenchman agreeing with me, at least as far as the attacking players of the Gunners are concerned. I am not talking about being complacent or not giving [.
The Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko has been strongly linked with a big money move to Arsenal or Paris St Germain this month, and even issued a come-and-get-me plea to Arsene Wenger when he announced that Arsenal were the "club of his heart" earlier in January. Now the French international has spoken to Mercato Foot about [.
I must admit that I was worried about Arsene Wenger perhaps being a bit over confident about getting a work permit for the new Arsenal defender Gabriel Paulista. We were told at the weekend that the Gunners and his Spanish La Liga club Villarreal had agreed the terms of the transfer and even Wenger said [.
While the Arsenal fans still await official confirmation from the club that the transfer deal to sign the Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista from Villarreal in La Liga is complete, many of us have been wondering whether that will be the end of our transfer business for this January transfer window. Well according to a Metro [.
It has been confirmed today by La Liga club Villarreal that the Arsenal and Costa Rica striker Joel Campbell will be joining them on loan until the end of the season, Sky Sports have reported. So Campbell become the third striker released by the Gunners this month and I think one of the main reasons [.
We already knew that Arsenal have a squad full of good attacking and creative players. The wealth of forwards available to Arsene Wenger now all our injury problems are on the wane was highlighted this month, as the Frenchman has allowed three strikers in Joel Campbell, Yaya Sanogo and Lukas Podolski to leave the club [.
\it is something that the Arsenal fans have become used to over the years and so I was not really surprised to hear the former Man United, Everton and England midfielder Phil Neville come out with his daft comments about Tomas Rosicky on last night's Match of the Day. Not surprised but a bit saddened [.
A selection headache is one of the best problems for the manager of a football team to have, and the Arsenal players coming into the side for the FA cup win over Brighton on Sunday have certainly given Arsene Wenger that with their performances. Okay, Tomas Rosicky may not have just returned from injury but [.
The winter transfer window is now entering its final week and surprisingly Arsenal have already completed one deal with the news that the Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista has been granted a work permit allowing him to join the Gunners at last. But it seems that Wenger has not finished his business and has now turned [.
Although Arsene Wenger has already made two new signings to boost the Arsenal squad during the January transfer window, there could still be more to come. For one thing, the Frenchman always seems to have something planned for transfer deadline day and for another, the young Polish midfielder Krystian Bielik is just 17-years old and [.
I was shocked enough last week when I found out that Francis Coquelin's Arsenal contract was set to expire this summer, which means that he is now free to discuss new deals with clubs outside the Premier League. I seem to remember, back in the day, when a young Mathieu Flamini was inadvertently allowed to [.
It would be very easy for the Arsenal players to take their eyes off the ball this weekend, but it is absolutely vital that the Gunners do not become complacent and that we make sure that all three points are going to stay in north London after the visit of Aston Villa in the Premier [...]
I suggested before Arsenal travelled to Brighton for the 4th round of the FA cup yesterday that the game was a great chance for Wojciech Szczesny to lay down a marker and prove to Arsene Wenger that he should still be the first choice keeper for the Gunners. And with Arsenal now involved in a [...]
Arsenal have not long ago found out which club will be the latest obstacle on the road to defending our FA cup trophy and it is the Championship side Middlesborough. The Teeside team are likely to provide a tough test for the Gunners, and they will be full of self-belief after knocking out the Premier [.
Gabriel Armando de Abreu by JA From Wikipedia Born in São Paulo, Gabriel graduated from Esporte Clube Vitória's youth setup, and made his senior debut on 7 March 2010, starting in a 3–1 win at Camaçari for the Campeonato Baiano championship. He made his Série A debut on 15 May, replacing Vilson in a [.
One thing that Arsenal have done really well in the last few years is to put very good runs of results and performances together, often just when we have really needed to. There is a theory that the Gunners need to be up against it to really produce our best stuff, but I think you [...]
Arsenal managed to scrape through to the next round of the FA Cup against Brighton yesterday, while Chelsea, Man City, Tottenham and Southampton were all eliminated the day before, and both Man United and Liverpool are left to fight out replays. This means that there are fewer big dangers to Arsenal retaining the trophy in [.
I am still in shock that Arsene Wenger has allowed Joel Campbell to leave Arsenal for the Spanish La Liga club Villarreal. If the ESPN report is right, we paid the release clause for Paulista so we did not have to include Campbell in the deal. It is only on loan until the end of [...]
It seems pretty evident that Arsene Wenger and whoever else is involved in getting the transfer deals done for Arsenal are confident that the club will be issued with a work permit for Gabriel Paulista, as we have already agreed the terms of the deal and will apparently complete the transfer of the 24-year old [.
It was a very happy Champions League draw for Arsenal Football Club and the fans, especially after all the tough draws the Gunners have been getting in recent years. But even though the French Ligue 1 outfit Monaco was about as good as we could have hoped for, there are no pushovers at this point [..
BFG, Kos, Chambers and Paulista Arsenal centre back conundrum by JS I believe Wenger took a big risk today in mixing up his back five again in trying to give Ospina, Bellerin and Mertesacker a rest. After yesterday's results and the fact we have a full week before the next game, I wanted to [...]
Arsenal back to their usual selves against Brighton by KM Ahh the FA cup strikes again. After seeing City, Spurs and Chelsea crash out all in one day, it was game on for Arsenal against Brighton. No matter what they say about it, the FA cup is the FA cup and it's a trophy. [...]
Arsene Wenger has been hailed as a master for his stroke of genius due to the fact that the Arsenal boss recalled Francis Coquelin from his loan deal at Charlton, but the fact that he did not secure a new contract for the French midfielder may yet come back to bite him in the bum! [...]
Arsenal fans will be hoping that the bookies have got this one right, as the men whose job it is to predict the most likely outcomes have installed the Gunners as favourites to win the FA cup again in May, retaining the trophy that we won last year at Wembley to end the nine year [...]
Any concerns from Arsenal fans that the Gunners might add to the weekend of FA cup shocks with a potentially tricky away tie at Brighton will have increased when they saw the team sheet. Arsene Wenger made a number of changes, leaving Alexis, Cazorla, Coquelin and Mertesacker on the bench. But those fears will not [.
Arsenal have been handed a fantastic bonus and a great chance to defend the FA cup trophy we won in that dramatic Wembley final back in May last year, with the magic of the cup waving it's wand and getting rid of Chelsea, Man City and Tottenham for us in a crazy day of cup [...]
Arsene Wenger is almost certain to put the name of the Arsenal and Germany star Mesut Ozil in his starting line-up to face the Championship club Brighton and Hove Albion tomorrow. The Frenchman is clearly keen to get the club record signing back into action and gaining match sharpness for the season ahead.
Arsene Wenger has declared that he is determined to build on Arsenal's fantastic away win over the Premier League champions Man City last weekend. And that starts today, with another away game in the fourth round of the FA cup. That is why the boss has vowed to pick a very strong starting line-up, even [.
Has Bellerin overtaken Calum Chambers as Right Back? By Twig Much has been said about the stellar performances of Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin in our last game, but the very impressive performance of Hector Bellerin has pretty much gone unnoticed. Bellerin has had both highs and lows at right back for Arsenal.
Arsenal v Brighton & Hove Albion Team prediction by Moh Arsenal will be traveling to Brighton in the fourth round of the FA cup today and coming back from a fantastic 0-2 win against Man City, this should on paper be an easy game for the Gunners. We faced them a couple of years [...]
The name of Francis Coquelin has been on the lips of many an Arsenal fan in recent weeks, especially since his disciplined and destructive performance at the heart of the Gunners midfield helped to produce our first big away win in a long time. Although most Arsenal fans would still like to see Arsene Wenger [.
Brighton vs Arsenal Preview, Line up and predicted score by KJ Most Arsenal fans are in a far better mood after last week's brilliant performance against Man City and we now go to Brighton to face a Championship team with a week's rest as well as the promise of Walcott, Ozil and others starting the [.
Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players will obviously be heading to Brighton today with the idea of beating the Championship side Brighton and booking the Gunners a place in the fifth round of the FA cup. I am not suggesting that we `play for a draw` by any means. But I am suggesting that we [...]
Well we have all been waiting for the announcement on Arsenal.com but as usual we have been informed by other sources that the signing of Gabriel Paulista has now been agreed, and the Gunners are sending Joel Campbell over to Villarreal on loan until the end of the season as a sweetener on the deal. [.
Calum Chambers arrived at Arsenal from Southampton this summer and was immediately thrown in at the deep end due to our massive list of defensive injuries. Most fans were very happy with his early performances, but lately he has come in for a bit of stick from JustArsenal readers. I think the problem is that [.
Among all the excitement and euphoria pouring out of Arsenal supporters the world over last weekend, there was still an element of concern. It was nothing to do with the way the Gunners played, tactically, as a team and with the individual performances from the players. The big question was whether it would prove to [.
As Arsenal close in on the transfer of the uncapped Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista from La Liga club Villarreal, Arsene Wenger knows that he will have to go to a tribunal hearing to ask for a work permit for the 24-year old to be able to play in the English Premier League and that has [...]
Arsene Wenger is clearly happy with this particular piece of transfer business, although it has some way to go before it starts to look as good a transfer as the signing of the superb Chile international striker Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona in the summer. But the manager is very happy with what he has seen [.
Will Arsene Wenger gamble in the transfer market? Back in August, Arsene Wenger described the transfer window as being like a game of poker. You can see what he means. It is a time of year when clubs are competing for a limited stock of talent, agents are on the lookout for a new contract, [...]
Why Wenger is right about work permits by KJ Just yesterday, Arsene Wenger admitted that Arsenal were looking into signing the Brazilian centre back, Gabriel Paulista. However, the main factor preventing a quick transfer is the attainment of a work permit. The FA requires you to obtain a work permit for players born outside of [.
There has been a lot of talk about the Arsenal goalkeeping situation this season already, and it has become a much bigger topic in recent weeks. Not only has our usual number one lost his starting place to David Ospina since New Years Day, but there are now Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that Arsene Wenger [.
Arsenal are preparing to face Brighton in defence of our FA Cup, and if the Gunners play as well as they did at Man City last week then this game will be just a formality. Many people have described our performance at the Etihad as "perfect" but Arsene Wenger is convinced that Arsenal can still [...]
The German midfielder Mesut Ozil has been on the treatment table for the last three months, but it seems that he has used the opportunity to build up some muscles and has come back to the squad looking bigger and definitely more beefy. This has been so noticeable that Arsene Wenger has decided to give [.
If I was the Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta or his central midfield team mate Mathieu Flamini, I would be getting a bit worried right now. Because their future Arsenal careers are starting to look a little bit dicey, to say the least, and the latest Arsenal transfer rumours are not making things any better for [.
First of all I should say that I still expect Arsenal to complete the transfer of the Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista from La Liga, even though the latest reports suggest that we have yet to come to an agreement with his current club Villarreal on the transfer fee. I very much doubt that Arsene Wenger [.
When Arsene Wenger revealed the latest Arsenal injury news, the doubts over the fitness of the two England international stars Danny Welbeck and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may have been bad news for them and the manager, but one Gunner who may have been less upset is Theo Walcott. With two of our regular forwards out of [.
Arsenal have yet to wrap up the transfer deal to bring Gabriel Paulista from his La Liga club Villareal to the Emirates and the Premier League, but everything points to it happening in the next few days. The Brazilian player, his current coach Marcelino and even Arsene Wenger have admitted to the talks going on [.
Even if Arsene Wenger does what most of us expect and make a few changes to the Arsenal starting line-up for the away game at Brighton in the FA cup, the Gunners will still be strong favourites to win the game and progress to the next round of the FA cup. But the Arsenal boss [...]
It is not likely to get any easier for the Costa Rica international star Joel Campbell to force his way into the Arsenal first team, with our flying England forward Theo Walcott getting closer to full match fitness and his two international team mates Danny Welbeck and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain giving Arsene Wenger better striking options [.
Our very own Spanish magician Santiago Cazorla is preparing to face lowly Brighton in Sundays FA Cup Fourth-round tie this weekend, but he is not only thinking about getting in the fraw for the ext round, he wants to see Arsenal go on to lift the trophy at Wembley again. "It's similar [to the Copa [.
Wenger said about the Paulista transfer: "It's 50-50 at this moment, yes. We respect the rules in England. When you buy a player who does not fulfil the criteria and needs a work permit, you go in front of a commission and they tell you yes or no. "We will accept that, we have to [...]
Francis Coquelin has really surprised us and started to show why Arsene Wenger was right to have faith in him and keep him at the club, despite having to send the young Frenchman off on various loan moves just to get a game. But the bad luck that hit the Gunners with a string of [...]
The Arsenal and England international forward Danny Welbeck already seemed to be struggling a little for form when he picked up his thigh injury in the win over West Ham on the Sunday after christmas. The former United man did score in that game but had gone six games previously without finding the net.
It is not like Arsene Wenger to tell the football media anything at all about his Arsenal transfer plans. All the Frenchman usually says is something along the lines of, we are working hard, it is difficult and there is no point signing any players just for the sake of it. And it is January [...]
The Arsenal and England international star Theo Walcott is finally back in the match day squads after a year on the sidelines with the anterior cruciate ligament injury he picked up in the FA cup win over the spuds last January. So he is understandably keen to get on to the pitch and start to [...]
Arsenal do NOT need big changes! by Sam P The season so far has been a disappointing one for Arsenal fans, but do not think that Arsene Wenger and the players are any happier than the rest of us. After last season and with some good business done in the summer transfer market, we all [...]
We all know that Arsenal definitely need a defender this month, and it now seems pretty certain that Arsene Wenger has pinpointed Gabriel Paulista as the man to fill the hole. But of course, as with every transfer to Arsenal, there is a snag to every deal. It has been reported in the Telegraph today [.
The Arsenal boss Ivan Gazidis has announced that the club are freezing season ticket prices for next season (although Club Members will pay an extra 2%) which will hopefully see the protests we saw last year come down to minimum. Gazidis makes it sound like he is doing the fans a favour when he said: [.
There is a very strange Arsenal transfer rumour going around today that the Gunners are preparing to sell Nacho Monreal back to a Spanish club to balance the books after buying Gabriel Paulista from Villarreal. The Express reckons that Monreal, who has been very helpful at times this season during our defensive crises is NOT [.
Arsene Wenger has given the latest round-up of the Arsenal injury situation in his pre-match press conference ahead of the FA cup fourth round match away to Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday. We should be used to this by now I suppose, but it would be nice just for once to not lose another [...]
The Frenchman Olivier Giroud has had a lot of stick from Arsenal fans since he arrived at the club, but since his enforced absence through injury this season he seems to have refound his scoring boots and contributed to the Gunners recent improvement in form. It may be a bit premature but he is now [.
There was a suggestion from Arsene Wenger that the Arsenal squad named to face Manchester City in the Premier League on Saturday could include the name of the young Polish midfielder Krystian Bielik, who was supposedly in London to have his Arsenal medical at the end of last week. The 17-year old did not appear [.
Arsenal debate Does Szczesny need to man up? by JO Over the past few weeks Arsenal fans have been treated to a positive change of fortunes with great results in wins against Hull City, Stoke and latest victims Manchester City. My guess is all Arsenal fans have enjoyed this and we can only hope [...]
The Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini will be 31-years old in a couple of months from now, but that is still pretty young for a modern day footballer. We have seen the likes of Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes playing at the top level for a lot longer than that and our own club captain Mikel [...]
The game between Arsenal and Manchester City at the Etihad stadium was billed by the football media as being about a clash between two of the shining stars of the Premier League this season, Alexis Sanchez and Sergio Aguero. It did not really happen that way and it is fair to say that our new [...]
Arsenal finish in the top four of the Premier League, it is what we do. Sometimes it is a bit of a close call and needs the team to put in a great run towards the end of the season, but our consistency in qualifying for the Champions League every year since Arsene Wenger took [...]
I must admit I was one of the few who doubted our Arsenal squad and their ability to beat Man City. But I was wrong and I couldn't be more delighted. The 16 corners we successfully defended. Man City's meek 4 shots on target, 7 shots in total. A clean sheet against a team [...]
After being the subject of some Arsenal transfer rumours in recent weeks, the Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista, who is currently starring for La Liga club Villareal, spoke out to welcome the interest from the Gunners. The 24-year old said that the whole thing was being handled by his agent, but he made no secret of [.
Cazorla Form Doesn't Spell Ozil Doom ! by JA Hello guys.Hope you're having a great week.... Cazorla is in an unbelievable vein of form at this point in the season. So good that some people think it's by default going to relegate Ozil to the bench. What most of you fail to realize is that [...]
I am not really sure whether Arsenal should even be trying to sign another striker in the January transfer window. We have bigger needs in other positions to fill for one thing and Arsene Wenger has already let the Germany international Lukas Podolski and the France under 21 international Yaya Sanogo leave the club on [.
Arsene came out with a plan for once, and it worked! by KM So Arsenal gave me the best birthday gift you can have as an Arsenal fan with that marvelous 2-0 win away to Man City. Straight off to the positives with the number one being Arsene Wenger going out with an idea of [...]
It may be just a coincidence that Arsenal put on the best away performance in a really big game for years on the same day that our former striker, record goal scorer and all round legend Thierry Henry was in the TV studio for the first time to give his verdict. But I have a [...]
The situation for Aaron Ramsey was a little different to that of the young French midfielder Francis Coquelin, who seems to be one of the major talking points of the day after his fantastic performance in central midfield away to Man City, but there are certainly some similarities. The Welshman's Arsenal future also looked to [.
We are just past the half-way stage of Arsenal's winter transfer window, andas we await final confirmation of 17 year-old Krystian Bielik's long-awaited capture, we look to our other targets who couldgive a more immediate boost to our first-team squad. Gabriel Paulista claims that his agent is in talks with the Emirates club in a [.
5 things Arsenal fans realised after the win at Manchester City by Demitri 1. Arsene Wenger has not lost his tactical nous It was quite unexpected for all football fans that Wenger had a trick up his sleeve for this away game. Arsenal fans did not have too much hope for this game, and pundits, [...]
Of course we do not know what the Arsenal starting line-up will be for the fourth round FA cup clash away to Brighton on Sunday, but I am fairly confident that one of the names on the team sheet handed in by Arsene Wenger will be Mesut Ozil. And I don't think I am exaggerating [...]
I have always backed Olivier Giroud to prove his doubters wrong, even when he took a while to get going after joining Arsenal from then champions of France Montpellier in the summer of 2012. His stats from previous clubs suggested that he got better with time and his all round contribution to the Arsenal cause [.
I know that the Arsenal boss will not want to meet the transfer demands of West Ham. The East London club actually want to keep hold of their talented centre back and have apparently tried various offers to persuade him to sign a new contract. But the latest media reports, including from The Mirror, claim [.
The Coquelin Case by JA Hello guys, hope you're having a good day. Now I've been reading a lot of comments from some people saying we should buy a "world class DM" like Nemanja Matic and use Coquelin as backup. Now that might be a good notion but then is Coquelin going to want to [...]
I don't think anyone would blame the Arsenal players and Arsene Wenger for having gone out on the lash last night, when they got back to London in a great mood after claiming all three points with a terrific battling performance against Man City. But that is not the sort of Bender I mean. The [...]
A clash of the tactical masterminds by JA Hey guys what's up? I know you had a great weekend just like me! I'm completely over the moon from yesterday and I'm absolutely sorry I doubted some of the Arsenal players. From a tactical point of view, both gaffers did their best to outfox the other [...]
I have heard this theory before from some Arsenal fans, usually with the addition that it would convince the club to call it a day with Arsene Wenger as the manager. This weekend the former Liverpool, Man City and Germany international midfielder Dietmar Hamaan has suggested once again that it might actually benefit the Gunners [.
What a fantastic win for Arsenal today against the moneybags of Man City in their own expensively sponsored stadium. A real gem after our terrible injury woes this season. Obviously Arsene Wenger was pleased after his best result of the last four years and he even went so far as to say we could have [.
Man City 0 – 2 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Ospina – 7.5 Surprisingly had very little to do in this game. Claimed the ball well enough from set pieces and was relatively commanding. Did make a couple of decent saves late on when City ramped up the pressure. Bellerin – 8 He was brilliant [...]
Coquelin could be a new Vieira or Arsenal's own Matic by Sam P If Francis Coquelin can continue in the way he has been doing recently for Arsenal, it will be a truly remarkable turnaround for the young Frenchman. And not only could it rescue an Arsenal career that was looking on very thin ice, [...]
The fact that it was Mike Dean that awarded Arsenal the penalty that allowed us to take a vital lead in the hugely important away win over Man City yesterday made it even more remarkable, because Arsenal fans will remember that we have usually been on the wrong end of decisions when that particular referee [.
Arsenal fans are used to seeing the club linked with lots of different players in different positions, especially in the run up to and during a transfer window. But Arsene Wenger;s words this week suggested that all these Arsenal transfer rumours are not just guesswork, at least not all of them. As our Just Arsenal [.
Arsenal got a fantastic win today and finally showed that we are capable of standing toe to toe with teams like Man City on their own turf and getr a result. And there is no doubt that the Gunners went about this game with a different mind set and tactics, which is what got us [...]
It was clear from the way Arsenal started this away game against the current Premier League champions, as well as the starting line-up selected by Arsene Wenger, that the Gunners had learned some painful lessons in recent years and were determined not to be too open. We have seen some of these big away games [.
Five ways for Arsenal to win by Twig The victories of Man Utd and Southampton yesterday has made our clash with Man City even more crucial. The game is crucial for both teams. If Arsenal wins, City will be 5 points off the pace behind Chelsea and if City wins we'll be behind Southampton by [...]
There has been plenty of good news for Arsenal on the injury front, although we still had to suffer the bad news about Msathieu Debuchy and Mikel Arteta being out for long spells. But the Arsenal squad is certainly looking stronger and giving Arsene Wenger better options. Not before time either, because today's opponents Man [.
I do not mean that Arsene Wenger is planning on supplementing his Arsenal manager's wages by taking up tightrope walking with the circus. And I do not mean the balancing act that the Frenchman has been forced into while having very little money to spend as the club paid off the debt of building a [..
It is good for Arsenal fans to hear Arsene Wenger sounding so upbeat and confident as he prepares the Gunners for the latest attempt to end our poor run of form and results against the bigger clubs in the Premier League. And the reason why the manager is full of belief that Arsenal can come [...]
It was a real shame for Arsenal and for our Wales international Aaron Ramsey, when the central midfielder picked up his latest injury during the Gunners' thumping of Turkish club Galatasaray in the final Champions League group game. Because despite Ramsey having struggled to recapture the brilliant form that he had shown in the previous [.
Wenger can't find a defender! by JN Arsene Wenger has openly admitted that it is a very big risk for Arsenal to finish the season without another central defender, but says that they are very difficult to find in the January transfer window. He told the official Arsenal website: "It's a market that is very [.
Arsene Wenger has happily admitted that he is desperate to bring in another centre-back after Mathieu Debuchy was ruled out for at least the next three months, but says that he is having trouble locating a suitable target in January. But yesterday the Villarreal defender Gabriel Paulista has revealed that his agent is in talks [.
Manchester City vs Arsenal Preview, Predicted line up and score by KJ I don't particularly fear a game against Manchester City. Although they are a better team than us, there is never an inevitability like there is against the likes of Chelsea and Man Utd. There's always the chance that we'll come up on top [.
Despite all the talk this week about the Arsenal and Chile star Alexis Sanchez and whether he is the best player in the Premier League this season so far, the former Liverpool and England defender Jamie Carragher has suggested that it is the Man City and Spain midfield maestro David Silva that is the key [.
The Arsenal and England international star Theo Walcott will be hoping that his latest game on the comeback trail after a year off with injury problems has some similarities with the last time the Gunners went to the Etihad stadium to face Man City. Walcott was fantastic in that game, scoring twice and causing City [.
Arsenal were always going to be under pressure with an away game at the reigning Premier League champions Man City and that pressure was already ramped up by our not so great first half of the season as well as our recent run of results against the big teams in the league. So the last [...]
The latest words from the agent of Marcelo Brozovic, the Croatian midfielder who has been the subject of a growing number of Arsenal transfer rumours in the last couple of weeks, are about as subtle as a brick through the wondow or a punch in the face. You do not have to be a master [...]

Pellegrini: "Alexis Sánchez is Premier League's best player..." by RC This Sunday sees Manchester City welcome Arsenal to the Etihad in what promises to be a spicy encounter after last season's 6-3 epic.

Has the time come for Arsene Wenger leave Arsenal? by Demitri Arsene Wenger was relatively unknown in England when joining, but quickly gained the respect of the players, coaches and pundits, as he led Arsenal to the Premier League and FA Cup double in his first full season in 1997/98. He revolutionised the modern game [.

Arsenal travel up to Manchester to face a Man City side that beat the Gunners 6-3 on their last visit, but Arsene Wenger doesn't believe that was a fair result, and thinks that we can get a completely opposite result tomorrow. "It was not at all a reflection of the game," said Wenger on Arsenal.com. [.
The Polish shot-stopper Wojciech Szczesny has been on the bench since his howlers against Southampton followed by the badly-timed smoking incident, but Arsene Wenger has repeatedly said that Szczesny is still considered to be Arsenal's Number One keeper. With that in mind, Wenger may decide that the 23 year-old has served his punishment and [.
It was all doom and gloom on the injury front for Arsenal yesterday, with the media reporting that the Gunners were going to be without the key figures of Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Debuchy for the next three months or so. But things are not quite as bad as all that, thankfully, as Arsene Wenger [...]
Arsene Wenger may have started to spend a lot more money on Arsenal transfers in the last couple of years, with the smashing to pieces of the Arsenal transfer record for Mesut Ozil a huge surprise to everyone. And the Frenchman has followed that stunning deal up as well, with decent money spent on Chambers, [.
We heard a few days from the Arsenal and Spain international midfield maestro, Santi Cazorla, about why he felt that he was more effective in the Central Attacking Midfield role for the Gunners, rather than being stuck out wide as he was for much of last season. As I wrote in an article for Just [...
Depending on what happens in the Premier League on Saturday of course, Arsenal could have a chance to move into the top four on Sunday, possible level on points with third placed Southampton and just eight points shy of Man City in second. But we need to win away against the reigning EPL champions in [.
Arsenal's injury problems just never seem to get better. As soon as we get a little good news we are immediately shot down in flames again. We were suffering from a shortage of defensive-minded players before the season even began and it has only got worse since then. The latest news from Arsenal.com is that [.
If the first player to sign for Arsenal in 2015, assuming that the young Polish midfielder Krystian Bielik passes his medical with the Gunners today, wants to make a good first impression on his new manager, then he could hardly have made a better start. As reported by the Daily Star, the 17-year old has [.

The new Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew seems very positive about the arrival of the Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo on loan, and promises to give him ample game-time to prove that he has the talent to make it in the Premier League. "Yaya comes into our club with much more of an even chance of [...]

It's hardly new Arsenal transfer news, but at lat we can safely say that Arsenal (barring a crazy medical) have finally got their first signing of January, and it has been confirmed by Krystian Bielik himself. "I'm going to London to fulfill my dreams. I hope I will become an Arsenal player soon." His club [.
There has been a mountain of paper used and bandwidth taken up with talk about Wojciech Szczesny's display against Southampton when Arsenal were beaten 2-0 after some comical work by the Pole, not to mention the fact he got caught smoking afterwards. First of all Szczesny's father (an ex-Poland keeper) gave his angry response to [.
Arsenal have been linked with the Celtic defender Virgil Van Dijk since the end of the summer transfer window and it looked odds on that he would be moving to the Emirates in January, but it seems that Arsene Wenger is playing it cool so far. It has been rumoured that Celtic are holding out [...]
Everyone connected with Arsenal is hoping for and expecting a better showing from the Gunners than we saw in the first half of the season. And we have made a decent enough start, with three wins from the four Premier League games since christmas. But I am not sure that I quite share the optimism [...
Poor old Mathieu Debuchy. The Arsenal and France international right back suffered his second freak injury of the season, with little helping hand from the Stoke City player Marko Arnautovic. And if the Frenchman's worst fears are confirmed then it could mean that his debut season as a Gunner will have been largely spent on [.
It is a bit like buses at the minute for Arsenal fans who have been twiddling out thumbs and waiting for Arsene Wenger to make his first move in the January transfer window. And now we find there may be two new Gunners to celebrate. Yesterday the Arsenal transfer rumour mill was buzzing with the [...
There was some very encouraging news for Arsenal on the injury front yesterday, after Jack Wilshere posted a video on a social network site of him moving freely without his protective boot and calmly slotting a penalty past a young player in the team he coaches. Apparently, the Gunners could now have him back around [.
Francis Coquelin has been a breath of fresh air during Arsenal's prolonged injury crisis, performing higher than our expectations in the absence of Mikael Arteta and Matthieu Flamini, and he believes that his loan period at The Valley helped him to improve. "It's been a couple of exciting months for me," the 23-year-old said on [.
If this latest Arsenal transfer rumour is true and that Arsene Wenger has already agreed a transfer deal to bring the Southampton and France international star Morgan Schneiderlin to the Emirates, it could have big repercussions for what happens with the Gunners in the January transfer window, and consequently could have ramifications for the rest [.
With the Arsenal injury situation slowly changing from crisis to merely problematic, Arsene Wenger is hoping to have a much stronger squad of fit players to choose from for the trip to face the Premier League champions at the Etihad stadium on Sunday. And that squad could well include Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini, as [.
Knowing the way things have been going on the injury front for Arsenal since the start of the current Premier League season, we probably have more bizarre and unlucky incidents like the Mathieu Debuchy shoulder injury to come, but this week there is at least some positive news on one of the current crop of [.
Most, if not all, Arsenal fans hope that Arsene Wenger is planning to carry on with his more expansive transfer business, which has seen the Gunners smash the club transfer record to bits in the signing of Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid and then follow it up by spending over £30 million on the amazing [.
Arsenal fans were led to believe a week or so ago that this transfer was all but a done deal for the Gunners. IN fact, it was reported that the young Polish midfielder Krystian Bielik had himself said that he expected the transfer to be completed and that their were just a few loose ends [...]
Arsenal hoping for help from FA cup replays by Sam P Arsenal will have our own FA cup game to worry about soon, with a trip to face an in-form Brighton for a place in the fifth round as the Gunners attempt to defend the FA cup trophy we won at Wembley in May. But [...]

We have widely acknowledged the fact that we areattempting to sign Legia Warsaw youngster Krystian Bielik. The recently turned 17 year-old has admitted he made the decision to join us this month, [.
The Arsenal and Spain international Santi Cazorla is having a much better time of it this season than in the last one. He was not exactly poor last year but it was a bit disappointing for him and the Arsenal fans that he could not reproduce the brilliant performances from his debut season that earned [.
I would love to think that Thierry Henry had read what I had to say on the matter the other day, but somehow I doubt it even though it was published on one of the big sports websites. But the former Arsenal and France international striker has been talking about the same issue, as reported [...]
THE CENTRE-BACK QUESTION. by JA Hey guys, it must be a great week after that destruction of Stoke City huh? So I have been looking through the comments a while and guess what the main topic is..... no you don't have to. It's the centre-back question. First off, I'm heavily amused by those saying Per [.
The Arsenal and France under 21 international striker Yaya Sanogo has completed his transfer move to the Premier League club Crystal Palace, on loan until the end of the season. I do not know if there is any sort of clause to allow Arsene Wenger to recall the tall striker in an emergency but I [...]
There have already been some Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that Arsene Wenger was ready to make an offer for the Sporting Lisbon and Portugal star William Carvalho, but today the Metro is reporting that is a different central midfielder, Ilkay Gundogan, that is top of the Gunners' transfer wish list.
Everyone connected with Arsenal will be desperate for the Gunners to continue our little winning streak on Sunday, but we also know that the chances of Arsenal beating a top Premier League rival are not great, especially away from home, so there is not a great deal of confidence flowing though the Arsenal fans ahead [.
Why Wenger is still managing Arsenal by DN The question of whether Arsenal are better off with Arsene Wenger as the manager has been a matter of some debate and discussion among Arsenal fans for some time now and I am sure that it will continue to be so for at least another year or [...]
The transfer window is yet to show up many surprises, but with Arsene Wenger admitting we need reinforcements, it should soon hot up with an addition or four! Today has not been as rife for Arsenal transfer stories as you would have expected, especially considering the latest injury to one of our first-choice back-four, but [.
Good win against Stoke but real test will be Man City by KM It's always a delight when Arsenal beat Stoke City. The years of Pulis have really marked this club. How was Arnautovic not punished in any way for what he did? I'm worried about Debuchy. This could be season over for him. We [...]
Every Arsenal fan is waiting for some real transfer news telling us that the Gunners have secured the signature of a top defensive midfielder or a top-of-the-range centre-back, but instead we have seen Lukas Podolski move to Inter Milan, Benik Afobe sold to Wolverhampton Wanderers, and now Arsenal have confirmed that Yaya Sanogo has moved [.
It has often been said of Arsenal under Arsene Wenger that we are all about the creative, passing and attacking side of the game, with the defending part of football often left to its own devices and seen as a necessary evil. The signing of players like Sebastien `the squid` Squillaci and Andre `the donkey` [.
Arsenal fans will be desperately hoping for some action from Arsene Wenger in the transfer market during the January transfer window and for many of us it is a case of the sooner, the better. Our poor old nerves cannot stand up to another final few days of tension and nerve-wracking waiting for the manager [.
Arsene Wenger needs to address the problems in his squad as early as possible in January by Dimitri Usually in the summer transfer window, Arsenal fans are left anxiously biting at their fingernails for their manager, Arsene Wenger, to make his first move. It usually ends up with last minute transfer panic buys, which, in [.

So when a top Premiership midfielder actually comes out and insists he wants to play for us [.
THE FOUR PLAYERS QUIETLY TRANSFORMING OUR SEASON by Uche Hello folks. I believe you are all in good spirits today. What a difference a great win makes. Just like our game against Hull City in the FA cup, we ran a strong Stoke side ragged in what was arguably our best performance of the season. [...]
How typical of Arsenal and our luck is this Gooners? Just as the Gunners are getting over our own injury crisis and are looking to build a decent run of results together, following on from a 2-0 win over Hull City in the FA cup and a 3-0 defeat of Stoke City yesterday, our next [...]
According to some of the recent Arsenal transfer rumours and a few words from Arsene Wenger, our young French striker Yaya Sanogo is set to spend the rest of the season on loan in order to gain some valuable game time. The Arsenal boss clearly wants that loan spell to be with a Premier League [...]
After Arsenal beat Stoke City with ease and put ourselves level on points with Southampton and just one behind Man United, the usual rreaction would be to hope that the two teams above the Gunners played out a draw at Old Trafford yesterday. But as we know, the Saints inflicted a rare home defeat on [.
Arsenal 3 – 0 Stoke Player Ratings by KJ Ospina – 6.5 Didn't have anything to do for the majority of the game. Had to make a couple of decent saves near the end but wasn't tested properly. Debuchy – 6 He was playing well until he was injured by Arnautovic. It seems like he'll [...]
Despite dropping his number one keeper for the last two games, the Arsenal boss has offered some encouragement to Wojciech Szczesny and even suggested that the Poland international could be back between the sticks for the trip north to fave Man City in the crucial Premier League clash on Sunday, as an ESPN report reveals.
GUNDOGAN? YES PLEASE by JA Hey guys, I heard that Arsenal are looking for a new DM and also heard that Dortmund's Ilkay Gundogan is available as he has just 18 months left on his contract. How come Wenger hasn't heard the same news! Now wait.I can see you boiling up with the 'we need [...]
Despite having a fully-fit defence at the moment, it is no secret that Arsenal are badly in need of a new addition or two to the backline. The Gunners' boss Arsene Wenger has so far been hesitant to comment on any potential new signings but has now admitted that there is a strong possibility that [..
You have to feel sorry for the Arsenal and France international star Mathieu Debuchy. The right back looks set for a second lengthy spell on the sidelines since his transfer to Arsenal from Newcastle United in the summer. And the Frenchman is the perfect epitome of the bad luck that the Gunners have been suffering [.
I must say that I am surprised, pleasantly surprised of course, to see how well Francis Coquelin has done for Arsenal since we recalled him from his loan spell at Charlton Athletic and brought him in to the starting line-up. Arsene Wenger had little chance, to be honest, with MIkel Arteta, Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey [.
After the horror show that Arsenal produced away to Stoke a few weeks ago, which was probably the worst 45 minutes from the Gunners for many a year, it was vital that Arsenal put on a much better showing in front of the Emirates crowd. And the way we started that game, the Arsenal players [...]
The Arsenal and Spain international midfielder Santi Cazorla is close to being the epitome of the way the Gunners play football and have done almost since Arsene Wenger took over as the manager nearly 20 years ago. I know that a lot of us would like to have some more strength in the squad, especially [.
Although Arsenal are not exactly out of the woods when it comes to our injury situation, by any means, it does look as though the worst could be over. And we really need it to be, because what was supposed to be a great season for the Gunners, following on from our Premier League title [...]
Arsene Wenger has already sent Lukas Podolski on loan to Inter Milan and is in the process of finding another Premier League club to park Yaya Sanogo at for the rest of the season, but now we have the (very surprising) news that Arsenal have agreed to sell Benik Afobe to an un-named Championship club, [.
Going into the game against Stoke on Sunday, the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will have a much tougher job in selecting the starting eleven as the Frenchman welcomes as many as four players back into the side. Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Mathieu Flamini have all recovered from injuries while Olivier Giroud will return after [.
Arsenal Handed Big Boost As Wilshere Nears return! by AT Following the return of Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil from injury, the Arsenal midfield has gotten a further boost from the treatment table as Jack Wilshere is said to be significantly ahead of schedule in his rehabilitation from an ankle injury he suffered during the [.
Arsenal vs Stoke Preview, predicted line up and score by KJ After the hectic Christmas schedule, we've had to wait an entire week for this game which has probably been a much needed rest for the team. Stoke embarrassed us at the Britannia earlier on this season and I'm hoping the players are eager for [.
Why Szczesny Must Be Dropped From The Arsenal Starting Eleven! by AT It seems as though the Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny is another one of those talented young players who just cannot stay out of trouble.

Arsenal fans are hoping for a hefty does of payback as well as all three points from the visit of our regular tormentors Stoke City today. JUst as their managers and players like to say things like `Arsenal do not like being kicked` we need to be able to say things like `Stoke don't like [...]
Mesut Ozil should start for Arsenal if fit by Sam P There was an article on this website the other day that suggested that it was too risky for Arsenal to throw Mesut Ozil straighht back into the starting line-up for the visit of the tough tackling and physically aggressive Stoke City tomorrow, even if [.
The Stoke City manager Mark Hughes seemed to get a bit upset in his pre-match briefing ahead of tomorrows game at Arsenal. The last meeting between the two sides was very eventful, with Stoke going an incredible three goals in front before a spirited Arsenal comback brought it back to 3-2. But Ramsey's sending off [.
Francis Coquelin, Per Mertesacker, Mikael Arteta and last weekend by JA Hello guys, hope y'all havin a fine uuhhhm happy transfer window.... So of late, two grown heads at Arsenal have come under criticism; Per Mertesacker and Mikael Arteta and it's all about they're slow, they're old or they just don't cut it.
Because of the inconsistent and shaky first half of the Premier League season that Arsenal have had, Arsene Wenger and the players will be painfully aware that there is not much room for manoeuvre left. The Gunners are already adrift of Chelsea and Man City at the top of the table, while we have somehow [.
This is not the first time that the Arsenal and Poland international star Wojciech Szczesny has found himself in a bit of an awkward situation with his manager. Arsene Wenger revealed today in the press conference ahead of the home game against Stoke City on Sunday, that the keeper had apologised for apparently smoking a [.
Arsenal fans could soon have something to smile about and ease our concerns. While there have been hundreds of interesting looking Arsenal transfer rumours in the football media, so far the only real action on that front has been about players leaving the club. Lukas Podolski has gone to play for Inter Milan in Italy's [.
Arsene Wenger is a big fan of the Arsenal and Germany international star Mesut Ozil, clearly. The Frenchman would not have made the creative midfielder his record signing or kept putting him in the Arsenal starting line-up when all the TV pundits and many fans were on his back if he did not rate the [.
Well this news has simply blown away all the dreams Arsenal fans have had that the club would be bringing in stars like Cavani, Isco, Lacazette, Dybala or any other striker, known or unknown, in this transfer window. Our beloved manager made this quite clear in yesterday's pre-match interview ahead of tomorrows game against Stoke.
The sad and unsettling truth about the club we love by Ozzy AFC So fellow Gooners we are again into January and apart from the fact that it's depressing enough with the hangover of Christmas to contend with, we find ourselves living in a state of "Forlorn Hope" during the winter transfer window. I'm sure [.
A few weeks ago it looked like the Arsenal and France under 21 international star Yaya Sanogo would be heading back to his homeland to play. It was only going to be a loan deal in order to get the young striker the regular game time and competitive playing experience that does not seem to [...]
I wonder if this latest Arsenal transfer rumour could be behind the fact that Arsene Wenger has had the young Gunners' striker Chuba Akpom on the Arsenal bench for recent games and has even given the 19-year old his Premier League debut at Southampton and some important game time in the FA cup win over [.
If the Arsenal boss has any real transfer interest in the West Ham and New Zealand international star Winston Reid, then we should soon see some action from Arsene Wenger. Because the defender's current boss Sam Allardyce has given the biggest hint yet that Reid will not be staying at West Ham and all but [.
Arsenal have had their ups and downs this season, with too many of the latter and not enough of the former. And one of the very worst, for me, was the first 45 minutes of the Premier League clash with our regular tormentors Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium around a month ago. If we [...]
While the injury list at Arsenal does seem to finally be easing, although we have heard that before a few times this season, our situation is still a lot worse than almost any other club in the Premier League. And it always seems to be that we meet clubs at just the wrong time. This [...]
Wenger's transfer dithering could cost Arsenal dearly by DN Here we are again Arsenal fans, with seemingly everyone in the world of football except Arsene Wenger thinking that the Gunners are teetering on the brink of a disaster and needing some quick action in the January transfer window in order to avert it.
Every Arsenal fan has believed that Arsene Wenger has always had a problem with Lukas Podolski because he has never given the German international an extended run in the Gunners first team, despite being our most consistent goalscorer for the last few years. Now that Lukas has gone out on loan, he has only confirmed [.
Why were Arsenal not interested in players like Bony or Valdes? by KM Well Arsene Wenger is waiting on miracles in the transfer window again. Straight to the point of why did we not go for Valdes? How many more experienced keepers who've won every trophy in Spain plus the Champions League can you get?
A lot of Arsenal fans might be getting quite excited about the possibility of the Gunners being able to sign the Real Madrid and Spain international star Sergio Ramos during the current January transfer window, after a report in the Metro today revealed that the Spanish defender was keen on a transfer to the Premier [.

Wojciech Szczesny has faced the anger of Arsenal fans after his blunders in the 2-0 defeat at Southampton last week, and annoyed Arsene Wenger even further when he was caught having a sneaky fag in the showers after the match, and the consensus seems to agree that he should be dropped in favour of David [.
The Arsenal defence is a disaster? by Sam P There has been numerous Arsenal rumours surrounding the performance of Wojciech Szczesny against Southampton, and whether Arsene Wenger will be dropping the young Pole to the bench as punishment for his dismal display. But Szczesny's father has leapt to his son's defence and even goes so [.
The Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo is obviously keen on making a return to Ligue 1 where he showed his early promise with Auxerre, but as the Bordeaux President Jean-Louis Triaud said: "We are working on the arrival of Sanogo. He wants to come to us, it's a certainty," "The goal is to have him for [...]
Last summer it was variously reported that Arsenal had made a last-minute bid to sign Celtic's talented Dutch defender Virgil Van Dijk only to be rejected by the Scottish Champions because they had no time to bring in an adequate replacement. I must admit I was of the opinion that the Gunners would be going [.
Every Arsenal fan is waiting impatiently to hear that the Gunners have secured the signing of a top class defender or defensive midfielder but for the moment we will have to content ourselves with the fact that Arsenal CAN still attract top young talent and persuade them to move to the Emirates. It has hardly [.
In the last couple of weeks Arsenal have been strongly linked with moves for top strikers like Edison Cavani and Paolo Dybala, but anyone who knows Arsene Wenger is aware that his motto is "we don't buy stars, we make them". Okay the purchases of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez have proved to be the [.
There is no doubt that Arsenal are in desperate need of an experienced reliable centre-back (even Arsene Wenger has finally admitted it!) and you can't get a more experienced one than the Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos, who in his ten years at the club has made won every possible trophy including the World Cup.
The young Spaniard Hector Bellerin has already made eight starts for the Gunners his season due to our horrendous injury list, but he has made it clear that he knows other players are ahead of him in the pecking order, but he has a plan on how to get ahead of them in the future. [...]
Santi Cazorla may be 30 years old, but he is the only other Arsenal player to come anywhere near the form of Alexis Sanchez. His four goals and excellent performances have not only won him the Arsenal Player of the Month award, but he has also been named as the PFA winner in the Premiership [...]
There is an interesting report from the Guardian last night that sounds like the reporter has been speaking directly to Wojciech Szczesny for his thoughts on whether he will be dropped by Arsenal next week in favour of David Ospina. Here are a few quotes from the report to illustrate whyI think it has come [.
The Arsenal winger Lukas Podolski has only been out on loan at Inter Milan for a few days, but he has already made his debut last night against the Serie A Champions Juventus, and helped his new club to pull back an equaliser in the second half. Podolski's new manager Roberto Mancini admitted that bringing [.
Arsenal need to bring players IN rather than letting more leave! by JN Arsenal fans were obvously perplexed in the summer when Arsene Wenger sold Thomas Vermaelen and then loaned out Francis Coquelin and Carl Jenkinson without bringing in better quality replacements, which was instrumental to our awful results during our defensive injury crisis.
Are Arsenal finally going to bring in a top-class striker to to help us compete at the top of the Premiership? Well, according to a report in today's Express we are!

The little Spaniard Santi Cazorla turned 30 last week, but is still as sprightly as he was 10 years ago if not even fitter. He has had an award winning December and it has also been revealed that he played 50 games for Arsenal in 2014, more than any of his younger (and more injury-prone) [...]
The new phenomenom in Serie A, Paolo Dybala, has been linked with a move to Arsenal, and today has agreed that he is very pleased with being noticed by "big clubs" and went on to say that he would prefer to move to Premiership club over Serie A or La Liga. "It's an incredible feeling [...]
We keep hearing about other clubs finalising their transfer deals as soon as the window was open, including Arsenal sending Lukas Podolski to Inter Milan, and probably Yaya Sanogo to Bordeaux. At least the interested clubs came out and made it clear that they wanted the players and Inter closed the deal for Poldi in [.
The young Frenchman Yaya Sanogo arrived at Arsenal as an expected "New Thierry Henry" as he started in Parisien side Les Ulis, where our legend Henry also began his career, and when he burst to our attention with four goals in the Emirates Cup win against Benfica, we began to believe that it was real [.
Despite Arsenal sending Lukas Podolski and Yaya Sanogo out on loan this month, Arsene Wenger has made it clear that he is still fully stocked in the striking department. Olivier Giroud has now served his 3 match ban. Danny Welbeck injured his thigh against West Ham but is fully expected to be ready for the [.
There is no doubt that Arsenal are in dire need of defensive reinforcements urgently, and according to reports in France we are looking at the St. Etienne centre-back Loic Perrin. at 29 years of age Perrin is certainly very experienced, with over 220 games under his belt in the French League, although he has never [.
There are very few Arsenal fans that would turn down the chance to sign Petr Cech from Chelsea, especially considering the blunders from Wojciech Szczesny this season, and according to an Express report today this is a possible scenario. It was reported that Arsene Wenger was extremely angry with the Polish stopper after the Southampton [.
Arsenal have been linked with the West Ham defender Winston Reid ever since the summer, and as the New Zealand international is out of contract at the end of the season it could be quite conceivable that Arsenal have already lined up a move to bring him to the Emirates. The Hammers manager Sam Allardyce [.
How best can Santi and Özil play together? by JA Hey guys . Happy new year. So he's back. I'm talking Theodor James Walcott and the eye (Mesut Özil) so right behind him. An added piece to this jigsaw is that Santi is on form, so how would I have all three on the pitch [...]
Arsene Wenger has made it clear that he wants the young Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo to go on loan to a Premiership club this month, but it now seems clear that the 21 year-old would much prefer a move back to his homeland with Bordeaux, and the French giants are keen on coming to an [...]
It was great to see Theo Walcott finally back on the pitch for Arsenal after a whole year on the sidelines. He was obviously a bit ring-rusty but he got involved and although he wasn't on top form with his finishing at least he was getting into some good positions. Perhaps it was lucky that [...]
Every Arsenal fan in the world was very angry that Arsene Wenger did not invest in a young strong defensive midfielder in the summer transfer window, especially as both Mikel Arteta and Matthieu Flamini were getting a bit long in the tooth to do the job for a club with title aspirations. But of course [.
The Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has been excellent for the highflying Southampton team, but he has been angling for move to a "bigger club" since the transfer window opened last summer, with Arsenal being strongly linked all the way through the transfer window. All Gooners know that Arsenal need a new accomplished defensive midfielder, and [.
Arsenal were hardly impressive against Hull yesterday by James N. There is a very old football cliche that you can only beat what is put in front of you, but when you consider that Arsenal's opponents yesterday had made TEN changes from the Hull side that played Everton on New Years Day, should we really [.
If the reports coming out of the French media are true, it could spell bad news for Arsenal fans and our hopes of signing the PSG and Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani. The powerful fr4ont man seems destined to leave the French champions as he is clearly not happy about the way things have gone since [.
There are very few Arsenal fans that would disagree that our team would be languishing in mid-table if Alexis Sanchez hadn't arrived at the Emirates this summer, and the Chilean was yet again the star of our 2-0 win over Hull in the FA Cup yesterday. Sanchez has played nearly every game so far this [.
Arsenal 2- 0 Hull City Player Ratings by KJ Ospina – 6.5 Didn't have any real saves to make at all throughout the game. It was relatively comfortable for him but he didn't make any mistakes and was quick with his distribution. Bellerin – 7 He had a very solid game both offensively and defensively.

With both Arsenal and Hull City making plenty of changes to their starting line-ups for this third round FA cup clash at the Emirates, you might have expected a slow and cautious start and perhaps a lack of quality from the start, but that was far from the case. Arsene Wenger gave both Theo Walcott [.
Arsenal really need to be on the ball today to make sure that we get the right result in the first game towards defending the FA cup trophy we won back in May. It might seem tough to have to face the same opponents, Hull City, as in that Wembley final, but this is no [...]
The young Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo may not have scored against Hull City in the famous FA cup final triumph at Wembley back in May, but there is little doubt that he did have a big effect for the Gunners after coming on with around half an hour of normal time left to play. Arsenal [...]
I could be wrong about this but hopefully Arsenal are set to strike early in the January transfer window. The player in question could even be heading for a transfer to Arsenal in the next two days is Arsene Wenger intends to make sure that the West Ham and New Zealand international defender Winston Reid [.
After the disappointing Arsenal performance and result from the away game at Southampton on new years day, it is very important for the Gunners to get back to winning ways quickly.

It is a well known fact that most top teams like to give some of their top players a rest in the arly stages of the FA Cup, especially if they are competing for the Premiership title or the Champions League, but Arsene Wenger has admitted that he will be using the same squad that [...]
I watched the Spurs, and I liked it. by JS As an Arsenal supporter since the early eighties, I have seen good football, bad football, boring football, flowing football and pretty much understand that we will have ups and downs as a club. That being said, for the last 3-4 years, the ups and downs [...
The young Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom may only have played for around 10 minutes at the end of the defeat to Southampton the other day, and it having been his first Premier League action of the season, but Arsenal fans could soon be seeing Akpom on a more regular basis. There are plenty of attacking [.
Arsenal vs Hull City Preview, Predicted line up and score line by KJ This is arguably the biggest tie of the 3rd round mainly because it's a replay of that tantalising final between the two teams last year. Both teams have changed squad wise and their fortune has taken a turn for the worst in [...]
Newsflash! Arsenal need a defensive midfielder, or at the very least, a central midfielder to add cover and competition at the heart of the Gunners squad. But the million dollar question is whether Arsene Wenger really agrees, or which players he thinks will do the job. Wenger is famous for not being the biggest fan [.
Alexis starting to regret his Arsenal transfer? by DN The Arsenal and Chile international star Alexis Sanchez must have expected a bit more from his new club when he made the decision to snub Liverpool and come to us instead after deciding to leave La Liga and Barcelona behind. With players like Mesut Ozil in [.
I have a dream.... by ArseOverTit It's of a Arsenal manager who at the start of the new season has ensured that a squad of sufficient quality and depth has been put in place by scouting players in positions where the team has been found to be lacking in the previous season. This is a [...]
According to various Arsenal transfer rumours, Arsene Wenger could be set to add to the misery being suffered by the fans of the Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund this season by swooping in the January transfer window for two of the club's star players. Dortmund are languishing at the bottom of the Bundesliga table and despite [.
New Year, but no real change and is it going to get better or far far worse? by LD Well happy new year gunners, or is it? It would seem that with the festive period out of the way and the start of another transfer window that there is a lot of fat to chew [...]
It seems as though the Arsenal and Germany international forward Lukas Podolski has played his last game for the Gunners, even if the transfer deal that is taking him to Inter Milan in Serie A is only a temporary one to begin with. The 29-year old is already in Italy and was pictured with an [...]
Thoughts on Arsenal for 2015 by DN Happy New Year Arsenal fans. Despite the fact that 2015 got off to a pretty terrible start, I am trying to stay positive and although the chances of us winning the Premier League title seem to be all done and dusted, we are still in Europe with a [...]
Arsene Wenger was obviously not happy that Arsenal dropped three points against one of our direct rivals for fourth place, but although he rued the defensive "mistakes" he felt that his team were tired but refused to blame anyone for the calamitous two goals we conceded. Le Prof said on the Arsenal Official website: "The [.
Forget a new DM, a new manager and a new keeper are much more needed at Arsenal. I don't know where to begin. Szczesny is the devil. He was worthless. Helpless. De Gea carries Man United by himself, while our keeper does everything he can to sink us. He is plain terrible. Sanchez may not [...]
Southampton 2 – 0 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny 2 Absolutely pathetic performance today. He was at complete fault for both goals. The rest of the team was awful but if the keeper does the basics, we come out of that game with a draw and we move on not too disgruntled with [...]
Southampton 2-0 Arsene-al: Class in defeat by JB If there is one thing I value as Arsenal manager, it is that when we lose, we don't see it as a negative. Whilst many managers would get angry at their players or themselves in such a moment, perhaps questioning what they could do to remedy the [...]
Wenger is not to blame for Arsenal loss by Sam P I am not surprised by the anger and frustration that has poured out of a lot of Arsenal fans since the 2-0 defeat away to Southampton yesterday. Not surprised at all, but still a bit miffed to be honest. Wenger out and all the [...]
The German international Lukas Podolski probably didn't take kindly to the statement from his Arsenal manager yesterday when Wenger tried to play down any chance of the 29 year-old leaving the Emirates this month, especially since the Inter manager Roberto Mancini revealed that the Italian Giants were taking an interest.
My view on Wenger's reign by S Vernon For almost two decades Arsenal have been privileged to have Arsene Wenger as one of the leading figures in the world of football. He has achieved unrivalled premier league success and been successful almost to the point of perfection... A manager that managed great players, managed great [.
This was always going to be a really tough test for Arsenal. Already having to cope with so many key player out of action due to availablility, the last thing Arsene Wenger needed was to lose our only regular central midfielder, but that is exactly what the manager had to do after Mathieu Flamini was [.
The latest news for Arsenal fans is pretty much the same or similar that we have had all season. Arsene Wenger has had to shuffle his squad and experiment because of the constant and ever growing and ongoing injury situation that the Gunners have had to cope with. Now our central midfielder Mathieu Flamini is [.
So this is it Arsenal fans, another year over and a new one just begun, to paraphrase the great John Lennon. And what have we done? More importantly, what are we going to do in 2015 to make sure that it is a good year for everyone of the Gooneristic persuasion? Well I think it [...]
I am going on the assumption that the Arsenal injury update given on Danny Welbeck was not some crafty ploy by Arsene Wenger and that the England international striker really has got a thigh problem that will keep him out of the away game against Southampton tomorrow. And assuming that the boss is not going [.
Just like all the Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger, Laurent Koscielny is keeping his fingers crossed that 2015 will see Arsenal have a lot easier time of it on the injury front. The France international star is only just back from his own spell in the treatment room and is obviously very keen to make [.
Arsenal are down at the South Coast of England today to try and secure their third win in seven days and ensure a place in the Top Four this evening. Arsene Wenger set out a defensive side for the tight gane at West Ham and is likely to adopt the same tactics this afternoon. The [...]
