The problem for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger is that anything like this is going to get brought up and have the bones picked clean, just like our ability to win the Premier League or the wisdom of Arsene Wenger´s transfer policy will be questioned. Until the Gunners get through a season and prove the doubters [.
Something has to give with Arsenal´s young German forward Serge Gnabry, or the player that showed such promise before he picked up an injury and missed the whole of last season. At the moment, Gnabry cannot even get on to the West Brom bench and the loan deal that was supposed to bring him the [...]
We only have 24 hours to go until Arsenal kick off the game against Swansea in South Wales, and Wenger is still undecided about who will be replacing Ramsey/The Ox on the Gunners right wing tomorrow. Again he has emphasised that it likely to be a straight replacement with Campbell getting the start, and with [.
While Arsenal were flying along in the Premier League, and beating an unbeatable looking Bayern Munich team into the bargain, no one was too concerned about the injury situation at the club. And to be fair, there were not many Gunners out of action for us to worry about. That has changed a lot over [.
There were many Arsenal fans that thought Chuba Akpom should have stayed at the Emirates this year as cover for Walcott and Giroud, but Arsene Wenger thought it would be more beneficial for the 19 year-old to go out on loan under Steve Bruce at Hull City. Akpom scored a couple of goals early on [...]
After Arsene Wenger confirmed that the latest Arsenal players to be hit by injury, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott, will definitely not be available until after the next international break and that none of our eight crocked Gunners will be available for the next three games, the question of priorities raises it´s head once more.
It seems strange to think that Swansea did the impossible last season by winning both fixtures against Arsenal, but the fact is that they have been a bit of a bogey team for the Gunners ever since they first won promotion in 2011. They won their first ever home Premier League game against us, and [..
The first question for Arsenal fans to consider, I suppose, is whether Arsene Wenger has been to blame for all the injury problems that have beset the Gunners in recent years. Many people believe that the number and nature of the injuries means that it simply had to be more than bad luck and as [...]
Arsenal fans were starting to worry whether the same old problems were coming back to haunt us, but it looks like the trick or treaters doing the rounds for Halloween tomorrow will be the only horrors we need to worry about. As long as the Gunners can get to the international break without too much [.
A very interesting interview on UEFA.com today with our very own Welshman Aaron Ramsey, and the injured Gunner reckons that Mesut Ozil is absolutely brilliant, but when asked who is the very best Arsenal player he has played with he said Cesc Fabregas! So his reply to being asked what he thought of Ozil, [.
Not only have Arsenal had to deal with more injury problems than all of our Premier League rivals over the last 10 years, but we also seem to lose players from the same area of the pitch at the same time, making the job of selecting a strong and well balanced side something of a [...]
Around 15 games into the season and half the Arsenal squad is injured already? by KM Okay, so whats up lately? We car-crashed out of the CoC, but there is a bigger issue. Just look at the injury list of outfield players. Jack Wilshere, Danny Welbeck, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott, Mikel Arteta and [.
Good old Santi Cazorla is very happy that Arsene Wenger has dropped him into a deeper position in the Arsenal midfield, and he loves keeping the Arsenal front men 'fresh', which I presume means that don't have to track back so much and tire themselves out. He does miss getting so many chances at goal [.
Hey Arsenal are still second in EPL by SP You would think that the Emirates had fallen down around our ears with all the negativity from Arsenal fans. Let's look at this sensibly shall we? So we have lost two first team players for a few weeks, so it is no big deal lads. THe [...]
Hey Arsenal are still second in EPL by SP You would think that the Emirates had fallen down around our ears with all the negativity from Arsenal fans. Let's look at this sensibly shall we? So we have lost two first team players for a few weeks, so it is no big deal lads. THe [...]
Most of the media sites, including the BBC, are reporting this morning that the two Arsenal players that got injured on Tuesday, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, will both be out for at least the next three games. So now Arsene Wenger has to try and reshape the first XI starting with this weekend's game [.
Normal service is resumed at Arsenal by DN There will be a million Arsenal fans shouting "I told you so" this week, as the double injury blow to Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has left the Gunners in a precarious position for their next few games. Not only have we lost those two as possible [.
With the latest rumours saying that the Arsenal Board are aiming to offer Arsene Wenger a new two year extension to his current contract, keeping him at the club until 2019, it is interesting that Le Prof has recently given Thierry Henry and Mikel Arteta jobs coaching our academy players. There are very few Gooners [.
Yes it was a let-down, but it certainly wasn't the end of the world. We put out a bunch of youngsters, wallys and brittle-boned prima-donnas for a practise game against tough Championship side and got taken apart. Ho Hum, so what.... One of those on the pitch was old-timer Matthieu Flamini, who, if I [.
In his new job as a TV pundit for Sky Sports, the former Arsenal and France international forward Thierry Henry has got to at least try to keep his bias in check, as the likes of Gary Neville and the hordes of ex Liverpool players do with varying degrees of success. Everyone knows which teams [...]
I know that it was a bad night at the office all round for Arsene Wenger and the players, as Arsenal limped to an emphatic defeat away to Championship side Sheffield Wednesday. But having lost two of the few first team players taken to Hillsborough for this somewhat unwelcome Capital One Cup clash, I do [.
Arsenal receive massive title boost with 3-0 humiliation to Sheffield Wednesday By Twig It was a humiliating defeat to Sheffield Wednesday last night, on a night where there were little or no positives to take home. The scoreline was made worse by injuries to Oxlade-Chamberlain and (his substitute) Theo Walcott.
I cannot remember which of the many former football players turned TV pundit that came out with it, but I must admit that I was left with my jaw hanging open in surprise, although by now I suppose I should be used to Arsenal being criticised and questioned by these so-called experts. Whoever it was [.
No need to worry! by SOH Yes Arsenal are out of the Capital One cup but, in all honesty, who all really cared too much about that game? Yes going on to win it would've been nice to add to the trophy cabinet, but its not the League or even the FA Cup, and we [...]
It was not a good night for the Gunners, not only did we get slaughtered by by Championship side Sheffiel Wednesday, but we also lost two more first team players to injury in the first 20 minutes. As Wenger said: "Walcott is a calf and Oxlade-Chamberlain is a hamstring." So now our injury troubles have [.
Annual injury fest springs questions about the lack of summer signings. by KM Hi guys. It's always bad when you are beaten 3:0 no matter what squad you play, but I cannot really be too surprised by what happened, nor feel too bad about it. We played our reserve squad, which name-wise looked solid, but [.
That was not what Arsenal wanted, never mind the fact that the Capital One Cup is a poor fourth on our list of priority targets, especially this season when it looks like we have a great chance of the Premier League trophy. But as well as accepting that Arsene Wenger was always going to play [...]
Most Arsenal fans are looking at tonight's League Cup game away at Sheff Weds to be a piece of cake, whichever team Arsene Wenger puts out, but I think everyone is going to be mildly surprised at the quality of our opponents. Wednesday are now on an 8 game unbeaten run, which is no mean [...]
For quite a while it looked as though the Arsenal and Costa Rica striker Joel Campbell would never get to actually play a competitive game for the Gunners, because of the work permit problems. And then when he did finally get his papers and came to north London on the back of an impressive World [...
We are still months away from the winter transfer window, so I wont bore you too often with the latest Arsenal transfer rumours, but just thought I'd give you a snippet of what is going around, as it is my duty to cover ALL Arsenal stories in the press! The truly reliable Metro (sarcasm!) is [...]
I am in a very confident mood as our Arsenal team are in the best form I have seen them in since the Invincibles. We are the best performing and most consistent team in the whole of Europe in 2015 and there is no reason to think we will stop our progression. In fact, if [...]
Arsene Wenger has made it clear that he will be making big changes for tonight's League Cup game at Sheffield Wednesday, to give our first team a well-deserved rest after their exploits in the last few weeks. Wenger has already told us that Petr Cech will play because of Ospina's injury, and Per Mertesacker has [.
Arsenal generally have at least two players for each position on the field, and Laurent Koscielny believes that over the season, there must be times when every single player gets a chance to gel with each other in competitive games, so he is a great believer in Wenger's rotation policy. "We know each other's qualities [.
Obviously I don't have a crystal ball, but I think I have a good insight into the way that Arsene Wenger thinks when it comes to resting players for Cup games. Le Prof has already said that Cech, Chambers and Campbell will play so I won't take credit for those predictions! Tonight's trip to Sheffield [.
Arsenal fans know that winning the Premier League is an unbelievably hard thing to do, so despite the Gunners recovering from a shaky start to be level on points with Man City at the top of the table, we are not getting ahead of ourselves. But with 13 places and 11 points between Arsenal and [...]
Arsenal fans know and understand the policy of Arsene Wenger in resting first team players in the Capital One Cup games, and even in the FA cup and Champions League games when we can, to give those key men a rest as well as giving some valuable opportunities to the up and coming Gunners from [...]
Arsenal are absolutely certain to play a severely weakened team tomorrow night at Hillsborough after their efforts of the last two weeks, but Sheffield Wednesday will have a fresh first team squad for their biggest game of the season. They will have their biggest crowd behind them as well as they have already sold 33,000 [.
There was a massive furore when Arsene Wenger used David Ospina in Arsenal's must-win Champions League tie against Olympiakos, and our French manager hinted that our Number 33 may have needed a rest to deflect criticism, but Wenger has no hesitation in putting Cech as the first name on the teamsheet for the Capitol One [.
It's time to focus on the upcoming games, not Wengers contract. by KM Hi guys. So after week 10 of the premier league we are sitting behind City only on goal difference and the results of late look good. I'll take us back to the game against Everton for a second as I feel a [...]
First of all I just want to remind the Arsenal fans that our centre forward Olivier Giroud has not suddenly found out how to score a goal. He may have been a bit off colour at the start of the current season, but the stats show that no player bar Sergio Aguero has scored more [...]
The huge importance of Per Mertesacker to Arsenal by MH Hi Gooners Once again we came away with all 3 points. The win against Everton was very important and I was very nervous before the match as we have given our all against a good Watford side and an excellent Bayern Munich side, also we [...]
Most Arsenal fans spent a tortuous summer expecting Arsene Wenger to splash the cash on a new super-striker and another beast of a DM, but our stubborn boss refused to spend a penny except for adding Petr Cech and a bunch of youngsters to the academy. Now in five weeks time we will be entering [...]
Another weekend of Premier League action saw another weekend of drama. by RC Sunderland recorded a record sixth consecutive win over north-east rivals Newcastle. Aston Villa's loss at home to Swansea cost Tim Sherwood his job. While Harry Kane was back to his best, netting a hat-trick in Tottenham's 5-1 away win over Bournemouth.
Arsenal had gone three games, against some very good teams, without conceding a goal, but Everton's deflected shot finally got past Petr Cech in the dying moments of the first half. That made it a nervy second half, and Arsene Wenger admitted it was difficult. "It was tough but I felt we played with great [.
Oh how the Arsenal fans used to dread a corner or a free kick that was not in a position for a shot. It did not even matter that much whether the attacking advantage when to the other side or us because there was usually more chance of Arsenal conceding a goal from a corner [...]
After Arsenal completed a fantastic week of beating Watford and Bayern Munich by extending our great run against Everton on Saturday, which was enough to put us level on points at the top of the Premier League table and keep the Champions League dream alive, no one is going to be too hard on the [...
Arsenal won their fourth game in a row this evening against Everton, but considering the intense fortnight our players have had we did very well to keep our energy levels up enough to take the points. We may have lost our on our run of clean sheets, but, Hey Ho, we are top of the [...]
I think it would have been really harsh on Arsenal if Everton had got anything out of the game, despite what Roberto Martinez said about out goals being soft and them having two very good chances to score late on. He seemed to have conveniently forgotten that we also hit the woodwork twice through Giroud [.
To be honest, I was going to give the Arsenal play maker Mesut Ozil my Man of the Match award, but listening to Thierry Henry and Jamie Carragher after the game and seeing some of the clips they showed to support their own pick, as well being really impressed with the way he has responded [...]
Here is our second Audio Post,which JustArsenal has introduced in partnership with AudioBoom. Today we can hear Arsene Wenger talking after our brilliant but difficult win over Everton. The players were certainly tired after their midweek heroics against Bayern Munich, but they stayed focused and fought all the way to secure the three points with [.
Arsenal preparing new contract extension for Wenger by Sam P Arsene Wenger has been in charge at Arsenal for a whole 19 years so far, and after a blistering start to his managership, the Gunners went seven whole seasons without a trophy, and many fans were advocating a change in the leadership to inject some [.
All summer long Arsenal fans were berating Arsene Wenger for not investing that so-called "war chest" in a new 50million striker, but the Frenchman kept insisting that Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott were more than enough to get the Gunners challenging for the title. Now it seems, in hindsight, that Wenger was absolutely right, and [.
Arsenal slipping back to bad old habits? by DN I do not want to be too hard on Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players, because they dug in to win a crucial match against a determined and dangerous Everton team after giving absolutely everything to chase the German champions Bayern Munich down on Tuesday [.
Wow I don't think I've ever heard an Arsenal player talk so honestly in an interview as Jack Wilshere does in this recording from AudioBoom. He obviously loves Arsene Wenger and he is prepared to play wherever his manager asks him too, but he has admitted that, in his heart of hearts, he would prefer [.
Arsenal fans should be hoping that nothing happens to our German international star Mesut Ozil this season and I do not just mean that he stays injury free. Because the player who went top of the Premier League assist chart today with his seventh of the season has really got the bit between his teeth.
Hey everyone, JustArsenal is bringing a new feature to the lazy-eyed or long-sighted members of our website with the introduction of Audio posts, in conjunction with the brilliant AudioBoom. This first audio interview is with Olivier Giroud talking to Sky Sports after today's win at Everton which puts us on top of the table at [.
Arsenal started the game well and showed no sign of the complacency that has often reared it's head when the Gunners are on a good run. For the first 20 minutes we were dominating the game with some slick passing and movement, although there were not too many clear cut chances. Everton came back after [.
We do not know if there is a problem with the Arsenal centre back Per Mertesacker as yet, but the German has not made it into the starting line up or even the subs bench for the visit of Everton today. And that is not the only change to the Gunners. We knew that Aaron [...]
Some Arsenal fans might be expecting Arsene Wenger to rest one or two key players today, with the recent injury picked up by Aaron Ramsey bringing to our minds the risk of this with most of the Arsenal first team having played almost every Premier League and Champions League game as well as the international [.
Other than Arsenal having won their last four games without conceding a goal, they are a frightening team to face on any normal day, but Everton have got to not just overcome the Gunners, they also have to overcome a 20 year inferiority complex when it comes to away games against Arsenal. The Everton manager [.
Fair enough, calling the Premier League fixture list `evil´ may be taking things a bit too far, but I still think that the Arsenal boss should have some sense of sympathy with his fellow Premier League boss Louis van Gaal, because I feel that the Man United boss is right to say that the lack [...]
If it ain´t broke don´t fix it is a maxim that can be used in many walks of life, football included, and it seems to be the way that Arsene Wenger is looking at his Arsenal striking options at the minute. So once again tomorrow, when Everton come to north London for the 10th round [...]
There have been a few articles in the football media in recent days about who will be the manager to take over the reins of Arsenal when Arsene Wenger does call it a day, or get sacked which seems about as likely as U2 sacking Bono as the lead singer. The former manager of Tottenham, [...]
Arsene Wenger has never been short of superlatives to describe his Arsenal squad when they are on a good run, and he used a whole boatload of them in the run up to today's game against Everton. The Gunners have been formidable in their last few games and our game showed even further progression in [.
Arsenal are looking for their fourth win and our fourth clean sheet in a row in todays game against Everton at the Emirates. The Toffees are no pushovers either, having been unbeaten in seven games before last weeks 3-0 defeat to Man United. Their only other defeat this season was at the hands of Manchester [.
The Arsenal boss may well be taking a bit of a risk, and the injury problems picked up this week by Aaron Ramsey and David Ospina were a stark reminder of what can happen to players coming back from the international break, but I very much doubt whether Arsene Wenger will make any more changes [...]
Arsene Wenger definitely knows his favourite Arsenal starting XI and rarely deviates from that line-up in the Premier League matches, but having played two tough matches in three days, I would think injuries and tiredness will force changes against Everton. Petr Cech is definitely in goal now that Ospina is out with a shoulder injury.
Although most Arsenal fans would argue that Aaron Ramsey is NOT a right-winger, we are still not going to be happy that the Welshman is set to be out for at least a month because of a new hamstring injury. He pulled up in the Bayern Munich game after an intense fortnight where he played [...]
It would take a minor miracle for Arsenal to finish this latest round of EPL games on top of the Premier League race, well it would need Manchester United to win their derby game with Man City while we beat Everton, and if our rivals draw we would need to put seven past the Toffees [...]
Why do Arsenal players seem to get more ridiculous questions asked of them than other team's players. We all know that Mikel Arteta (our captain I think) is doing his coaching badge, and is probably the most likely to end up as a manager one day, so he probably needs more practise fending off the [..
The fans of Arsenal Football Club have had to put up with more than most in the modern age, although I´m sure that the supporters of clubs like Leeds, Portsmouth and others will have a different point of view. Yes we have always had Champions League games to look forward to and despite the failure [.
Just when we were beginning to thing that the terrible luck that has beset Arsenal on the injury front for years was not going to carry on in the present season, Arsene Wenger has given an injury update that consitutes a triple whammy for us. All three of the players involved, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere [.
Last Chance For Oxlade-Chamberlain by JH Arsenal are currently flying high, having beaten arguably the best team on the planet right now, but victory in that game did come at a price, Arsene Wenger's first choice right winger, Aaron Ramsey, suffered a hamstring injury, and is set to miss roughly a month of football.
Ramsey injury should be a warning sign not to burn the squad out. by KM Hi guys, so Arsenal have been rocking it out winning some big games, scoring some nice goals and recording some great clean sheets, and it all looks good at the moment. The only problem lurking round is the annual injury [...]
Arsenal fans have spent years wondering which of our best players would be cherry picked by some of Europe´s biggest clubs, including all three of our main Premier League rivals; Chelsea, Man City and Man United. For a long time the worst offender was the Catalan club Barcelona and even though we did get Cesc [.
When I say Arsenal here I mean the Arsenal fans, because there is no telling whether Arsene Wenger will be any more inclined to use the January transfer window to sign a striker than he was in the summer. What the manager did suggest was that he would only add new players to the Arsenal [...]
He has been a key player for Arsenal in many games this season and Mesut Ozil came up with the goods again this week to help the Gunners to a fantastic win over a brilliant Bayern Munich featuring some of his team mates from the Germany national side. After the game our German play maker [...]
Fantasy football game www.oulala.com have taken a look at the stats and have revealed Europe's ten most creative players so far this season. All midfielders. West Ham's Dimitri Payet leads Oulala's list. The 28-year-old has provided 35 key passes in the Premier League this season, the most from any player in Europe.
Remember when Mesut Ozil first arrived at Arsenal after his deadline day transfer from Real Madrid had sent us Arsenal fans into raptures of delight and disbelief and gave the under fire Arsenal team a real shot in the arm? The German started pretty strongly as well, producing a pinpoint assist on his debut, but [.
Mourinho's moments of naivety could land him in trouble with Authorities again by The Analyser Away from matters directly Arsenal let's talk about a man who likes to drag Arsenal and Wenger into his travails. After getting into trouble with football authorities Mourinho decided to use Wenger's remarks as his defence.
Not only have Arsenal managed to get three clean sheets in a row for the second time this season, but two of those teams were Man United and Bayern Munich (No disrespect to Watford!) and even better, we have scored 8 goals without reply in that mini-run. So with Petr Cech in goal, and with [...]
Despite the heroics of the Arsenal team produced in beating the hot favourites Bayern Munich at the Emirates stadium on Tuesday night, our position in the Champions League is still a very precarious one. So when the Gunners arrive at Munich´s Allianz Arena in a couple of weeks, it will be in the knowledge that [.
It was only about four days ago that Theo Walcott was saying that Arsenal can beat anyone if they play to form, and sure enough they went on take all three points off Bayern Munich on Tuesday. Although, Theo admitted that they had to stick to their game plan, and it also helped that we [...]
Although we understand that winning the Premier League is the main priority for this season, every Arsenal fan wanted Arsene Wenger to play his strongest possible starting line up for the visit of Bayern Munich last night. He did just that and boy did it pay off, but it may have been one game too [..
It is a fair reward for how well the Arsenal and Chile forward has taken the English Premier League by storm since signing from Barcelona last summer that the name of Alexis Sanchez is among the 23 players from the world of football that have made the shortlist for the FIFA Ballon D´Or awarded to [.
We turned up with a plan and it worked! by KM How are you my fellow jubilant Arsenal fans! What a great win against a supreme side. The telling goes that on our day we can beat anyone. I said that with a little bit of luck, we might surprise Bayern and we did. [...]
Last night was a famous and fantastic one for Arsenal fans, as Arsene Wenger and the players produced a great game to beat a brilliant Bayern Munich side. But it was not without cost, as our Welsh international midfielder Aaron Ramsey had to be replaced early on in the second half. It has now been [.
The shoulder injury to the second choice Arsenal keeper David Ospina is not thought to be a major problem that will keep him out of action for long, he may well be wondering when he will get another first team start. Unless Ospina is fit for the Capital One Cup game away to Sheffield Wednesday [...]
The mighty Arsenal kept their third clean sheet in a row against the supposedly unbeatable Bayern Munich last night, and there is no doubt that the victory was built on the defence. Arsenal only had a measly 27% possession and Petr Cech had to work a lot harder than usual. But he did his job [...]
Importance of the FA cup, teamwork, belief, new found consistency, and role of fans by MH Hi fellow Gooners So our Gunners didn't listen to so many fans and pundits about the idea of giving up on Europe. As a result we got one of the best performances of recent times. Now this is almost [...]
Arsenal fans may well be thinking `if only´ today. If only Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players had prepared properly for the first two Champions League group games against Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiacos then we could now be sitting on top of the group. With ifs and buts and all that however, you never know [.
I am not sure how happy the Arsenal and France international forward is with his new role, but it certainly seems to be suiting Olivier Giroud to come on as a second half sub. It is not how the big striker started the season, of course, but Arsene Wenger did not have a lot of [...]
Well what can you say after a performance like that. Bayern Munich have won every single game since the season began, but you can't deny that Arsenal matched them from the start to the end. It's a great shame that Walcott couldn't score but bringing on Giroud was absolutely perfect timing. The Frenchman scored within [.
In case some of us didn't know it already, the massive build up and interest in this game is telling us this is the biggest game of the season so far. Bayern Munich are definitely the form team in Europe this season, but if you take the whole year of 2015, then Arsenal come out [...]
Arsenal do have some reasons to be optimistic and believe that we can record a famous victory over Bayern Munich tonight, despite the fact that the German club are on an amazing run of form and their strikers Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller are on fire. Arsene Wenger has already said that his team are [.
I don't think that Arsenal have ever been in the position of losing their first two Champions League Group matches ever before, but all it means is that the Gunners will now be desperate to get their first three points on the board. Pep Guardiola thinks this will simply make Arsenal even more dangerous tonight.
If Arsenal are to have any realistic hope of qualifying for the next phase of the Champions League, we simply have to beat the German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich at the Emirates stadium tomorrow evening. Mathematically we could still go through by winning the final three games, but if we don´t win tomorrow it is [.
The good news for Arsenal fans is that the up and coming January transfer window and the one next summer will not see us bombarded with a new Arsenal transfer rumour concerning the France international striker Karim Benzema every five minutes. Well that is if the various rumour mongers in the football media actually take [.
Time to Shine Arsenal FC! by SOH I am usually one of the many Arsenal supporters that moans, gurns and complains about Wenger, the board, transfers, defeats, bad records etc... sometimes right, sometimes wrong but all of that doesn't matter as we have bigger things to worry about on the pitch regardless of what happens [.
Why we must give our all against Bayern! by MH I am writing this article on the observation of Arsenal's last few weeks of brilliant football. Since our win against Manchester United, many fans were over the moon (even I was) and they rightly deserve to be, simply because of our performance. But after that [.
Arsene Wenger told the Arsenal fans this weekend that our Brazilian centre-back Gabriel was back in the squad for tonights game against Bayern Munich, and many of us hoped that Wenger would play the Brazilian this evening, but it seems the Frenchman has decided to stick with his most experienced defensive pairing of Laurent Koscielny [.
Arsene Wenger has given out a battle cry ahead of tomorrow's Champions League match with Bayern Munich, and has no doubts that Arsenal can get the better of the best form team in Europe. He said: "[There was] the one that won the treble with Ribery at full power, Robben at full power and Kroos, [...]
Most Arsenal fans could understand the thinking of Arsene Wenger when he made the decision to start David Ospina in goal for the first Champions League group game away to Dinamo Zagreb. After all, the Colombian international was a very impressive and reliable performance for the Gunners last season and we all expected even a [.
Football is a team game and having a squad of players that will fight for each other and have the right blend of attacking and creative flair with a solidity in defence is hugely important to achieving success. That is even more true when you are looking at what it takes to win the long [...]
There are always two sides of the coin with Arsenal! by KM Hi guys. So I'll take us back to the Watford game for a second, where we managed a 3:0 win in the end. That doesn't tell the whole story. In the first half we missed some chances and for 60 minutes Watford were [...]
Arsene Wenger has some big choices to make in the next few days about which Arsenal players will be in the starting line up on Tuesday night, when the German Bundesliga champions come to town for the first of two back to back games that will probably decide our fate in the Champions League this [...]
There has been one interesting footnote to Arsenal's win over Watford on Saturday that has not really been discussed by the JustArsenal readers, which is the fact that the 21 year-old Matt Macey was named as the substitute keeper ahead of David Ospina, apparently because the Colombian Number One suffered a "sore shoulder" on international [.
Arsenal may have been generally expected to win their Premier League game at Watford on Saturday, even though the Gunners were playing away from home, and with some concern about the match fitness of star man Alexis Sanchez after his late return from international duty with Chile. After Man City, Man United and Chelsea all [.
Even though Arsene Wenger has admitted what we all suspected, that the big priority for Arsenal this season is to win the Premier League, the Frenchman also accepts that the performances of the Gunners in the first two Champions League group games was simply not good enough. In a report on the Arsenal website the [.
There seems to be a growing feeling in the football media that Arsenal are struggling to convince the Colombian international keeper David Ospina at the club, despite the fact that Arsene Wenger did manage to keep him in the summer by sending Wojciech Szczesny out to the Serie A club Roma on loan. There have [.
Some interesting thoughts on the Watford v Arsenal game by MH Hi guys, Now the spirits are good in the Arsenal camp, at least in the league where we have created some momentum and are on a good run, and as I was watching the Watford game a few things came to my mind . [...]
It seemed to take a while for Arsenal to warm up this season with just five goals in our first six League games, but suddenly we exploded against Leicester and have now scored ELEVEN in our last three games. We seem to have stepped up a gear and are now attacking at a blistering pace [...]
The accusation that Mesut Ozil is a bit of a luxury player for Arsenal has been heard ever since the German signed for the Gunners over two years ago and there has been evidence to back up the claim. Ozil was a bit lightweight when he first came to the Premier League and was too [...]
Can Lining Up Under This New System Get More Consistency from Arsenal There has been much discussion about Arsenal's chances of securing their first Premier League trophy in a decade with the 3-0 football thrashing of Manchester United. However, Arsenal fan will be keen to see if this was one of those 'one time' specialities [.
Arsenal fans have plenty of reasons to be cheerful at the minute, but the Champions League situation is not one of them. Things are certainly going our way in the Premier League, with a much better injury situation and all of our big players finding some great form. And we also won the north London [.
The Arsenal and Chile international was probably not at his imperious best for the Gunners´ vital away win o9ver Watford and considering that Alexis Sanchez only touched down in London on Thursday after a taxing international break, that is no surprise. And there were other players like Ozil, Cazorla and Ramsey that played very well [.
Watford proved to be a tough nut to crack in a very open and fast-moving game. Although it was a deadlock at half-time, Arsenal could easily have been winning if Walcott had been more accurate with his head and Aaron Ramsey hadn't missed two clearcut chances. But the Gunners finally got on top in the [.
Arsenal are on a great run of form, but with our crucial Champions League match coming up on Tuesday there is a definite chance of fatigue setting in after such a lively encounter against Watford. Arsene Wenger picked his very best side at Vicarage Road yesterday and admitted that this League game was much more [.
Arsenal are set to face Bayern Munich on Tuesday in fine form, having won their last three League games and scoring 11 goals in the process including the demolition of Man United a couple of weeks ago. But Bayern Munich are on an even more impressive run. Yesterday they made it a perfect 10 out [...]
Henry vs RedKnapp How to defend against Theo " The Fellaini Effect" By GS Its funny how people can watch a football game and have a completely different view of how the game should be played and what football teams should be doing. But that is the beauty of football as we all [...]
After a really tough and dogged effort from the home team, Arsenal finally broke through the Watford defensive line and that was a huge relief. But as much of a relief, if not more, was the fact that the third Arsenal goal was scored by Aaron Ramsey. I am sure that no one will be [...]
For quite a long time of this Premier League away game, Arsenal and all our talented and creative players were held at bay and matched by the hard working, determined and well drilled home side. Watford went into this game with the joint best defensive record in the league and having only conceded one, from [.
Arsenal are hoping that the players can pick up nicely from where we left off in the Premier League a couple of weeks ago with the thrashing of our big Premier League rivals Manchester United. Arsene Wenger suggested that the excellent international break enjoyed by the various Gunners was helped by their club form and [.
There were thousands of Arsenal transfer rumour stories linking us with Karim Benzema in the summer, with lesser rumours saying that Arsene Wenger wanted to bring in other frontmen like Aleksandr Kokorin or Jackson Martinez, but Le Prof stayed aloof from all the fans and pundits alike who kept imploring him to buy another striker [.
The French youngster Yaya Sanogo looked to be an incredible prospect when Arsenal signed him from Auxerre two summers ago. He was 20 years old, 6ft 4in tall, and had an excellent scoring record of 26 goals in 52 games for the French club. But at Arsenal he lost his scoring boots and although given [.
Arsenal go north from the Emirates to visit Vicarage Road in Watford this evening, and it is very difficult to know what to expect from the home side. The Hornets have only scored 6 goals so far this season, but have also only conceded 7, which is the same as Arsenal. So I guess we [...]
Theo Walcott´s recent performances have been typical of the way that Arsenal have started to show the sort of form that we expected to see right from the start of the season. If the Gunners had started this campaign the way we finished the last one, then we would already be sitting on top of [...]
It seems that every few months Arsene Wenger finds a new word that takes his fancy and he flogs it to death until he discovers a new cliche. He has always been keen on 'Team Spirit' and 'Togetherness' and he has been keen on 'Winning Mentality' and 'Mental Strength' in the past. The last few [...]
So at last the international break is finally over and we can get back to the serious stuff of Arsenal's race to the Premier League table. Not only did every Arsenal player score in the internationals, but it looks like we didn't get any more injuries either.Wenger said: "From the internationals we only have positive [.
I am sorry to say, Arsenal fans, that I have mislaid my crystal ball and cannot read the tea leaves to save my life, so I can only guess at what will happen when the Gunners take on Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday evening. And although he might have a better idea of how [...]
I am finding it hard to remember any Arsenal player taking quite as much stick from so many parts of the football media, or at least not when they have actually contributed to the success of Arsenal the way that Mesut Ozil has. I think that there are a couple of big reasons for the [...]
When he was challenged about his statement by one of the reporters at the Arsenal press conference yesterday, Arsene Wenger chose to back up a little and say that you can never rule out any club from the Premier League title race at this early stage of the season. Before that, however, the Frenchman had [.
Two seasons ago, Arsenal finished fourth in the Premier League and won the FA Cup, last season we retained the trophy and moved up a place in the League. Now Arsene Wenger has promised at the annual shareholders meeting that he is committed to improving on those results in this current campaign. "We want more [.
We may all call Alexis Sanchez the "Duracell Bunny", but the fact is that the Arsenal hitman is still human and has the risk of burning out as much as any other Arsenal player. Having played in the World Cup before his arrival at the Emirates, he then went on to play 52 games in [...]
There has been a lot of discussion about Arsenal giving up on progressing in the Champions League in favour of making a sustained challenge for the Premier League title. This view was given credence when we saw Arsene Wenger pick severely weakened teams for the first two Group matches and keeping our First XI fit [.
Even though Arsenal fans can easily disagree about the simplest thing, I think we can all agree on which of our current players is the most important. So we know, just as Arsene Wenger does, that our encouraging but also fragile hopes of finally regaining the Premier League trophy will be dealt a massive blow [.
Arsenal fans and Supporters Groups are always complaining about paying the highest prices in Europe to go and watch our team, but it very rare to actually see many organised protests against the club's policies. Now it seems that the Bayern Munich supporters, who have had to pay £64, which will rise to €100 Euros [.
The Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey finally got his first goal of the season in the Wales win in midweek, after missing a sitter for the Gunners against Man United, and the player himself feels sure that now he has broken his duck the goals will start flowing again. I've been wanting it now for a [..
In Arsenal's last away League game we managed to score five past a previously unbeaten Leicester side, but our trip up to Watford could prove to be even more difficult. The Hornets may just have been promoted but they are holding ther own off the back of some fine defensive performances. After four home games [.
After the positive and very welcome update on the injury of the Arsenal and England international forward Danny Welbeck this week, it looks like the former Man United man could be back in action for Arsenal quite soon. The surgery went well and if Welbeck's recovery continues as it has been doing, we may even [.
Arsenals Champions league poor results are "just a noise" to sir Chip Keswick by KM Kaboom baby! What was that? Arsenals two defeats in the Champions League are just some noise I guess? Did you hear anything? Wow is that a bad way to respond to some questions, Chip. I mean boy the lack of [...]
With Arsenal FC holding their Annual General Meeting today, the subject of money was always bound to be a hot topic. More specifically, the gap between the massive amount of money that the club has in the bank and is earning in profit every year, as opposed to relatively meagre spending in the transfer market.
Arsenal as a whole! by S O'H So now we have had our AGM meeting at Arsenal about a few topics that needed addressed but did we get proper answers to our transfers in the summer and Conman Stan's 3m payment? I dont think so! Their answer was we have spent when it's been needed [...]
It is the former World Cup winner himself whose place in the Arsenal starting line up is most at risk by the young England international Calum Chambers, but the German centre back has no problem singing the praises of his young team mate. In fact he claims that he is doing everything he can during [.
Well as international breaks go, Arsenal fans, that latest one was about as good as we have had in some time. No more injury problems for Arsenal, while Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott, Alexis Sanchez, Joel Campbell, Aaron Ramsey, Santi Cazorla, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Serge Gnabry and Chuba Akpom all found the back of the net for [.
I am not trying to suggest that Arsenal only need to turn up to Vicarage Road on Saturday evening to come away with all three points against Watford, because we have learned to our cost many times in the past, and also during this current season, that you van never afford to be complacent and [...]
If Arsenal suffer another season of disappointment in the Premier League and do not manage to improve on the third place finish we managed last season, it will of course be a massive disappointment. It would also make what I am about to write about as far fetched as our north London rivals the spuds [.
What's the goal at Arsenal? Alexis gone wild again. by KM Good day everybody! Those damn internationals are over and players will be heading back to the lands of their football clubs with one major issue getting their focus back on club football. But the break has been good to the Arsenal family. A [.
The next few weeks could turn out to be absolutely pivotal for Arsenal and out hopes of ending the 11 year wait and earning the right to lift the Premier League trophy at the end of this season. The Gunners have recovered from a shaky start and with none of our big Premier League rivals [...]
Arsenal fans and the football media were left pretty bemused and baffled by the transfer doings of Arsene Wenger in the latest summer transfer window, so we can only guess and cross our fingers that the Frenchman is planning to be a bit more proactive when the winter transfer window opens in January.
All Arsenal fans will surely admit that our injury situation so far this season is at least twice as good as at this point in the last campaign, but we still have a few on the sidelines. We have already heard that Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini should be in the squad to face Watford [...]
What an international break it has been for Arsenal, even though we normally hate them because our international Gunners normally come with injuries. Well this time we have remained injury-free so far for a change, and everybody has been scoring goals for their countries. Walcott and Oxlade-Chamberlain got on the scoresheets for England, Ramsey got [.
Arsene Wenger has been stressing all summer that it is much more important to keep the team spirit and cohesion going with keeping his Arsenal squad together rather than disrupting the equilibrium by bringing in new players. To this effect he has made it his mission to persuade his current players to sign new contracts, [.
Arsenal's last two League games were brilliant wins over Leicester City and Man United, with the return of their fast free-flowing attacking style which is practically impossible to defend against. We were creating just as many chances at the beginning of the season, but now Alexis and Walcott are taking advantage of the situation at [.
In the last few years it looks to me that Arsenal have always seemed to play with more freedom in away games than they do at the Emirates. Personally I thought it was because the players were under more pressure to win in front of the home crowd, but today Arsene Wenger has revealed that [...]
With Arsenal finally starting to look as though we might be able to have a good season and perhaps even challenge for and win the Premier League title, there is a little less pressure on the manager. Not much less though, especially after losing the two opening games in the Champions League saw Arsenal fans [.
I can understand why the new Arsenal number one has come out with some words of support for his struggling former club. After all, Petr Cech spent 11 years at Stamford Bridge while the mega millions of Roman Abramovich helped Chelsea to their most successful period in history. And the Czech Republic keeper still has [.
Arsenal fans may be looking forward to the January transfer window, more in hope than expectation, and we can only hazard a guess at whether Arsene Wenger will actually sign, or even attempt to sign, any players this season. Even though he has been roundly criticized for failing to do so in the summer, the [.
They were never exactly the best of friends, especially when Arsenal were the main rival to Manchester United in the search for trophy success, but Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson clearly have some respect for each other, rather than the thinly veiled dislike and disrespect that is between the Arsenal boss and Jose Mourinho.
The end of this current season will see two of Arsenal´s key players enter the final two years of their contracts and that is something that Arsene Wenger and the club are determined to not let happen anymore with our best players, after we were forced to say goodbye to stars like Robin van Persie [.
As Arsenal lost their first two Champions League Group games to the outsiders, it is now imperative that the Gunners get something out of their two games against Bayern Munich or they will have little chance of progressing to the knockout stages. Arsene Wenger believes (scientifically of course) that the home crowd is the biggest [.
The Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has admitted that he was playing through the pain barrier for the whole of last season, which severely affected his performances, but this year he is perfectly fit and ready to make a big impression on the side. In an interview with the Online Gooner, the young England international was [.
Scoring goals has been one of a number of issues that affected Arsenal at the start of the current season, although Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott have all improved significantly in front of goal in recent weeks. Mesut Ozil also got in on the act in our last Premier League game against Man [.
It is a tricky situation and certainly a worrying one for Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger. The manager of the Chile national team, Jorge Sampaoli, has already given the Gunners a fright this week by admitting that he played our star striker for the full 90 minutes against Brazil in a World Cup qualifying match, [.
Although Arsene Wenger was officially signed by Arsenal on the 30th September 1996, he did not pick his first starting XI until today, the 12th October, and we ended up with a 2-0 away win at Blackburn Rovers, who were bottom of the table at the time. The Gunners finished third that season, and the [.
THe international break has so far been quite good to Arsenal, with the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott, Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud all scoring, Mesut Ozil shining for Germany and nothing bad happening to any of the Gunners as yet. The injury news has been good so far, not only with the Arsenal [.
Olivier Giroud has slowly surrendered his place as first-choice striker for Arsenal and France this season, and seems to have totally lost his confidence in front of goal. Through his career at the Emirates he has always seemed to be very emotional and is greatly affected by criticism from fans and pundits alike, which has [.
The Arsenal and Germany star has already started to silence his doubters in the football media and if he carries on the way he has been doing so far this season, Mesut Ozil will soon have the likes of Michael Owen and Paul Scholes eating their words. There was a certain stat about Ozil´s creative [.
Spirit? Championship ambitions? The numbers do not lie. by KM So the international break of boredom will soon be over, but it feels like forever without watching the mighty Arsenal play again. So what did we learn from the break so far? We had both our strikers scoring goals which is nice, as we need [.
Arsene Wenger has to make some serious considerations ahead of Arsenal's Champions League game against Bayern Munich at the Emirates next. The Frenchman was soundly citicized for playing David Ospina ahead of Petr Cech in the game against Olympiakos, and then the second-choice keeper made a schoolboy error which led us to lose to Olympiakos.
The Arsenal winger-turned-striker Theo Walcott was given his chance in the middle of the action again in England's 9th win in a row as they beat Estonia 2-0, with the Three Lions top scorer and captain, Wayne Rooney, absent from the squad- And he yet again was rewarded with another goal to open the scoring, [.
As Chelsea coasted to the Premier League title last season, Jose Mourinho never missed a chance to insult the Gunners boss Arsene Wenger. This season the tables have turned but Wenger has resisted the chance to put the boot into the Portugese bus conductor even though he has been as obnoxious as ever.
Olivier Giroud is finding it hard to get used to being on the substitute's bench, and yet again on Thursday he was overlooked by France in favour of Real Madrid's Karim Benzema. The score was already 4-0 when Benzema suffered a thigh strain so Giroud finally got on the pitch for the last ten minutes, [.
The Sporitng Club de Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho is definitely one of the most promising DMs in Europe at the moment, so there is little surprise that Arsenal was sending scouts to watch him on a regular basis last season. But sadly in July the 23 year-old sustained a fracture to his tibia after leading [.
Well we have only played one round of the International matches, and only have Arsenal players scored quite a few goal (as in Walcott, Cazorla and Sanchez) but suddenly our opponents have become severely weakened. Is this the year where injuries actually work in our favour for a change? We all believe that Man City [.
Are Arsenal a one-man team? by DN I guess Arsenal were called a one-man team in the days of Thierry Henry, or when Robin Van Persie was scoring goals for fun, but is it true that we rely on Alexis Sanchez now so much that if he is not in the team we think we [...]
If things keep going the way they have been doing, and the rest of the Arsenal squad can help him to resist the urge to react to the sort of provocation that got him sent off after the Chelsea and Spain striker Diego Costa´s latest use of the football dark arts, then our Brazilian international [...
Arsene Wenger may only have been talking about the things that are happening in the Arsenal dressing room and discussing how important to our hopes of winning the Premier League title it is to keep the team spirit in the group as strong as possible. However, with all the head scratching and debate going on [.
Well the first round of international games are over and we will have to do it all again in midweek, but so far so good as we have not picked up any new injuries yet (touch wood!). All the latest injury news concerns events that happened in England though, and it appears that both Matthieu [...]
As this excruciating International break continues, let's have a few esoteric discussions about other matters relating to Arsenal. So let's discuss whether you would prefer if Arsenal carried on with our Premier League form and went on to lift the title? Or would you prefer that we dropped out of the title race and went [.
There is a young Frenchman, who has been named as the new Eden Hazard at Lille, and it seems that many clubs, including Tottenham, were interested in buyimg him this summer. He is the Lille playmaker/winger Sofiane Boufal who was reported to be a 14m Euro target for the Spuds on deadline day, but his [.
Neither of them are new signings for Arsenal and both have had plenty of good moments for the Gunners in previous seasons, but it is starting to look like this current campaign will be the best ever in an Arsenal shirt for two of the current Gunners, Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott. And maybe it [...]
It is a little bit ironic that Arsene Wenger is upset that Liverpool have sacked Brendan Rodgers and brought in Jurgen Klopp, as there are a lot of Arsenal fans that would have liked the German to be coming to the Emirates and displacing Le Prof instead! Wenger sounds rather shocked that Rodgers, who nearly [.
There was immense amounts of frustration from Arsenal fans that Arsene Wenger did not bring a new striker into the Emirates during the three-month summer transfer window, despite the overwhelming rumours that the Gunners were trying to persuade Karim Benzema to move from Real Madrid. The French international denied that there was ever a chance [.
There have been reports in the football media over the last year or so that the Germany international star Mario Gotze could be ready to leave his Bundesliga club and Arsenal were one of the big clubs who were spoken about as a potential destination for the exciting young attacking player. With his low centre [.
There are many people who think that Arsenal are not going to finish in the top two places in our Champions League Group, with two defeats to the minnows plus a double header against Bayern Munich coming up very soon. But we have every chance of finishing in third spot which would give us a [...]
We all know that Petr Cech is a fantastic goalkeeper that is going to be instrumental in Arsenal winning the Premier League title this season :-), but I'm not sure that he should be allowed to answer questions from journalists in the future, as he is totally out of touch with this world! I have [...]
Arsenal's energy-filled striker Alexis Sanchez had a brilliant summer as he helped Chile to win the Copa America, and he helped his team pass another milestone in Santiago last night by beating the Brazilians for the first time in 15 years. After seeing Alexis get substituted towards the end of the Gunners fantastic win over [.
I assume that there are quite a few Arsenal fans out there, mostly those of the WOB variety, that are pretty gutted with the news that Liverpool FC have announced the German coach Jurgen Klopp has signed a three year deal to take over from the sacked Brendan Rodgers as the manager of the Anfield [...
There is not a lot of Arsenal news around during the international break, but we should take a little time to welcome back a former "King of Highbury", Liam Brady. He left our very successful academy set-up a few years ago, but he is now being brought back as an ambassador for the club, which [...]
When Arsenal somehow managed to mess up the League cup final against Birmingham City, it was a real low point for the fans and the club in general and after we had already waited many years since Arsenal had last lifted a trophy, the 2005 FA cup, it was beginning to look like the success [...]
This time last year we knew we had no chance of winning the League, and most Arsenal fans thought that the Gunners would fall apart this season once we came up against the Big Guns in the title race, but we were all pleasantly surprised when Wenger's side totally demolished Man United last weekend to [.
An assessment of the squad so far this season. by KM It's that International (boring) break time again and while England play Estonia in a pointless game of football where the only interesting news are if Walcott is going to get that front role again, we can take a look at how the squad is [...]
Even though he was doing brilliant things for Arsenal in the second half of last season, after the injury problems to Mathieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta forced Arsene Wenger to cut short his loan spell with Charlton, there were still a lot of doubts about the French midfielder Francis Coquelin. Arsenal fans were happy that [.
When Mesut Ozil was signed by Arsenal a couple of years ago, the German play maker had formed a reputation as being the king of the assists with his creative talents at both Werder Bremen of the Bundesliga and Real Madrid of La Liga, as well as his stunning performances for the Germany national side.
So it seems that one of the Dinamo Zagreb players, Arijan Ademi, has failed a doping test after the tie with Arsenal in Croatia, although it will not be fully confirmed until UEFA have studied his B sample before any punishment can be applied. Dinamo released this statement yesterday on learning of the failure.
All Arsenal fans could dream of having a team of players that played with the energy and confidence of our star man Alexis Sanchez, but even if we had two of him up front that would make us into formidable opponents for any team in the world. So if Theo Walcott is aiming to play [...]
Wenger's 19th anniversary by Sam P. Last week was Arsene Wenger's 19th anniversary at our great club, but it practically went unnoticed amongst the clamours for his removal after the loss to Olympiakos. But now we have beaten Man United and are sitting pretty in second place in the League, maybe it's time to appreciate [.
There are quite a few stats going around the football media at the minute and one of them, reported by Metro, is about the Arsenal and Czech Republic international keeper Petr Cech. So I thought it might be time to take an early look at how our only signing of the summer is doing with [...]
The chances of the Arsenal and England international star Theo Walcott starting against Estonia at Wembley on Friday have just taken a massive turn for the better, after the England captain and regular centre forward Wayne Rooney was forced to miss the latest training session after picking up an ankle injury.
It is always a good thing to have confidence, especially in football as in any professional sport it helps the players top get the best out of themselves and be more relaxed going into big games or competitions. And after Arsenal beat our Premier League rivals Manchester United with such a convincing showing last weekend [.
Despite the fact that the Arsenal and England international Theo Walcott is looking better all the time and showing that Arsene Wenger has a great option for the centre forward position, the form of our France international striker Olivier Giroud is becoming a real concern. Giroud may have already scored three Premier League goals this [.
Arsene Wenger was roundly criticized by all and sundry for not spending any of Arsenal's war chest on a new striker this summer, preferring to keep the faith with Olivier Giroud and converting Theo Walcott from a winger into a Henryesque type of centre-forward. Le Prof also has Chuba Akpom out on loan to further [.
A little bit of confidence can always help you get that extra ounce of strength to overcome your rivals, and the Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin says that his team-mates are sure that this could be their season, and have thought that from before the season even started. This confidence was clearly on show when the [.
Wenger has to win the title now or just leave Arsenal for good. by KM Hello folks. International breaks. I mean what a dull time for all football fans. I literally have zero friends who think it's a good idea to have those breaks now. Everything is pretty much decided and we hope to survive [...]
Before the Man United game, most Arsenal fans were regretting that Laurent Koscielny was taken out injured and were worried that Per Mertesacker would have to partner Gabriel in defence, but they held firm against the so-called deadly Man United attack force, and along with Petr Cech (5 shots 5 saves) stopped the Red [.
We know that Arsenal have plenty of money to spend, so assuming that miracles do not occur over the next few weeks and the Gunners fail to qualify for the next round of the Champions League and perhaps even the Europa League, the subsequent drop in revenue will not have any bearing on Arsene Wenger's [.
Can a New Pattern Re-establish Arsenal's Threat to Bus Parkers? by NO Arsenal is facing a crisis of thinness upfront. We seem not to have enough players to rely on to get the goals. We have two players in Walcott and Giroud who can put in the shift upfront, but currently they are shooting without [..
Should Arsenal give up on the Champions League for the League?? by JH Those of you that are aware of my articles will know that I enjoy the odd controversial one. I believe many will not accept my view on this one right away, but if you think about it, you will see I have [...]
Has pressure gotten the best out of the Arsenal squad and the manager? by KM Hello everybody. First of all i want to bury the hatchet with everyone that felt bad about my articles here. Look I don't want to offend anybody on this site and I feel that feeling insulted if someone has a [...]
For any Arsenal fans that do not keep up to speed on the goings on in Spain's La Liga, you may not have heard of the Celta Vigo and Spain international forward Nolito, real name Manuel Agudo Duran. If so I would advise you to have a look at him over the next couple of [...]
I do not like to harp on about Arsenal and how luck has not been on our side for a long time now, because it often sounds like sour grapes, while other people often say that luck evens itself out over the course of a season or two. But then again you hear people in [...]
Arsenal v Man Utd thoughts by TJ I watched the game three times. The first live, and then two more times to take a look at our shape, tactics and work rate. I am sure many of you watched it many more times than I did! Clearly a superb effort by the boys and a [...]
Arsenal's best chance of winning the League? by JH I write this article today with the obvious expectation that AKBs and AOBs are united in their great mood. We struggle against the big sides, that's what we are supposed to do, so when we had beaten Man United (so-called title contenders) in 20 minutes of [.
We need to change our behaviour. The Arsenal fans, players, and the manager. By Galen I know everyone is still super excited about yesterday's demolition of Manchester United. I also understand that Arsenal fans will be disappointed with me writing such an article after a very impressive performance.
It must be a little confusing for the Arsenal and England stars Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, as their situations with club and country are very different. The Ox is a regular starter for Roy Hodgson in the international games yet he struggles to force his way into the Arsenal line up. And the opposite [.
Arsenal do not play again for nearly two weeks due to the international break, but after that great performance and result against Manchester United yesterday, at least it will be a happy and optimistic couple of weeks. Hopefully none of our players will pick up an injury while on international duty and then we will [.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN EXPECTING! by Uche Hello everybody. I am sure we are all in a much better place after yesterday's giant killing. I enjoyed that performance very much. It was unbelievable ,and when the final whistle was blown, I was left in deep thought. How did we lose against Olympiakos a few days [.
Lots of topics as Arsenal spared Man United a true humiliation by KM Well Well! Happy weekend everybody. What a way to end your Sunday having Man United destroyed at the Emirates, and then go off to the pub to have a well deserved drink and mock those United fans. I mean when you are [...]
That was one of the best games from Arsenal in many a year, as Theo Walcott said after the game. The speedy England striker played a massive role in it as well, along with his attack minded team mates Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Santi Cazorla. The Gunners were simply brilliant going forwards [.
My dream for Arsenal's Season by MFH After Tuesdays defeat to Dinamo Zagreb, every pundit and fan alike were speaking like the world was ending for Arsenal, but now after that fantastic win against Man United people have changed their minds and are being positive again. That's because fans and people that work as pundits [.
Let's all just support Arsenal shall we? by Sam P Every time Arsenal lose a game, the so-called AOB's come out to play, insulting other Gooners and disrespecting the greatest manager in Arsenal's history, despite the success he has brought to us over his 19 years at the club. When we win they suddenly become [.
This win for Arsenal over Premier League rivals Manchester United saw a great all round performance from the Gunners, both in attack and defence and there were lots of candidates for the Man of the Match, such as Petr Cech who made three crucial saves, Alexis Sanchez for his two great goals and Theo Walcott [.
An absolutely brilliant performance from Arsenal against Man United yesterday lifted us up to second in the Premier League table, and broke our duck against our great rivals in the League. After flying into a 3-0 lead with two brilliant goals from Sanchez, including a back-heel that reminded me of a Gianfranco Zola goal that [.
One of the first things the TV pundits said after watching Arsenal put in an amazing performance to take Manchester United apart with surgical skill was to ask whether this result would send a big message to our Premier League rivals and I think we are all agreed that this is exactly what we did. [..
I am writing this article before the Arsenal v Manchester United game and that is because, win, lose or draw, it does not really have a lot of bearing on my point. If Arsenal win then I suppose a lot more Gooners will be happy to agree with me while if we lose then there [...]
The only complaint that I can have with the Arsenal performance today was that we did not score more goals. I have no problems at all with the way we eased off and sat back after storming into a three goal lead against Manchester United. What a start though. Electric stuff from the attacking players [.
Today is a big day for Arsenal and potentially a pivotal one in this Premier League season, as whoever wins the game will head into the international break with great belief and in a very good position to challenge the leage leaders Man City for the title of champions. The Gunners need to bounce back [.
You might think that the English FA felt that they should be careful not to do anything bad to Arsenal after the debacle with Mike Dean a couple of weeks ago when he got everything wrong, cost us a vital game and had to have his daft and biased decisions reversed after the game. Well [...]
It will not help Arsenal directly, as we have already lost the game while the villains of the piece Chelsea were gifted a Premier League lifeline with their win over us a couple of weeks ago, but I think all Arsenal fans will be happy and even a little vindicated with the latest news from [...]
I have often wondered what goes on behind closed doors during the winter and summer transfer windows ( not much it seems of you are an Arsenal fan) as it seems to be a strange system. Arsene Wenger is always saying things like he is working around the clock trying to find and sign the [...]
Wenger's plan is working by SP After losing our first Premier League game of the season to West Ham, Arsenal have clawed themselves back into contention and can move into second place this afternoon. Arsenal fans have been clamouring for Wenger to make us into true title contenders for years, and now he has actually [.
As we wait for the "title decider" this afternoon, it is good to know that Petr Cech and the Arsenal defenders have been studying Man United's strikers ahead of this afternoon's game. Other than Cech's debut against West Ham, the Czech international has looked very solid, although our defence may have left a few things [.
Although the destination of the Premier League title will not be decided this afternoon, Arsene Wenger is in no doubt that the Gunners must beat Man United at home, and turn the Emirates into a fortress, if they are going to be serious challengers this season. Wenger told the Official Arsenal website: "These are always [.
Unless Arsene Wenger has a brain freeze or Santi Cazorla joins the Arsenal injury list, the Spaniard will be directing proceedings for the Gunners against Manchester United today from his now customary role in the centre of midfield. And while I would not say that he has been poor at it this season, because the [.
A year or so ago I would have agreed with what Gary Neville has said about Arsenal and our recent struggles to get results in the big games against our Premier League rivals. Even now when you look at the stats it tells a grim story for the Gunners, but I contest his claim that [...]
Even Van Gaal admits that Wenger needs to perform better by KM Hello again. So ahead of what used to be the title decider, the best game in England, it's once again Arsenal v Man United close to the top of the table. So whats different? Both teams are shadows of their former selves, but [...]
There you go Arsene Wenger, there is no need to waste your time making complex plans about how Arsenal should go about facing the current Premier League leaders at the Emirates tomorrow. The Gunners know how to create and score goals anyway, so as long as we can cope with the attacking threat from Manchester [.
Arsenal fans have been known to accuse Arsene Wenger of having his favourite players that he will keep playing whether they are in good form or not and one of the players this has been said about most in recent years is the Wales international midfielder Aaron Ramsey. As we know, Rambo proved his many [.
I am not saying that Louis van Gaal will not be keen to beat Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday. For one thing it would mean that his Manchester United team would keep their place on top of the Premier League table and with the latest international break coming up after the game, it would [...]
No one was really surprised to hear Ry Keane lay into Arsenal and accuse the players of lacking character after we slumped to a second Champions League defeat in a row. The manner of the defeat was certainly frustrating and avoidable but I am not sure the former Man United and Ireland captain was right [.
The painful days. By Galen Sona Arsenal 0 v 2 Bayern Munich Champions league 2013 This was the round of 16 of the champions league. We started the game like a house on fire and we were all over Bayern in the first 15 mins. It was some great stuff from Arsenal. Why it hurts? [...]
Arsenal Players should take 80% of the blame. By Galen I try not write any article immediately after a game of football. Most often the anger is doing all the talking. I have gone back to Arsenal Player and watch our game vs Olympiakos. I have also read and seen the comments of the fans [...]
I might not agree with everything that Arsene Wenger has been saying this week about Arsenal and his under fire players, not many fans would after that shocker against the Greek champions, but I have to agree with him on what he said about the laziness of the football media and how they report on [..
You can easily understand why Arsene Wenger wants Arsenal to treat the Premier League campaign as a completely separate entity to the Champions League, as we have been truly dreadful so far in the latter, losing the opening two games against teams that we were expected to beat without too much fuss. The Gunners started [.
Because of the way that he has begun his football career in the Premier League with a ban, Arsenal will certainly be looking at the Manchester United new boy Anthony Martial as one of the major dangers when Louis van Gaal and his players arrive at the Emirates stadium on Sunday. And with Arsene Wenger [.
Wenger losing his cool once again. Interesting stuff before United by KM Hello there fellow Arsenal fans. You think that with Arsene once you hit rock bottom there's no going under, but the guy never disappoints. He threatened to leave the press conference when the journalists asked him if he was wrong about the goalkeeper [.
I bet there is one thing that the Arsenal keeper David Ospina and the Olympiacos midfielder Kostas Fortounis will agree on; that they would both rather have had the second goal for Olympiacos at the Emirates stadium on Tuesday credited to the Greek player. As it was the goal was put down as an Ospina [.
Obviously Arsenal will need to play a lot better against Manchester United on Sunday than we did against Olympiacos on Wednesday in order to get anything out of the game, but you would certainly expect a reaction from the Gunners and it seems clear that Arsene Wenger is treating the Premier League as his main [.
I know that a lot of Arsenal fans and other people in the football world looking in will blame Arsene Wenger for any and all problems that affect the club, and to a certain extent they are right because the bick does top with the boss and Wenger has more power at Arsenal than most [...]
It seems that the stress is getting to the Arsenal manager after the media response to our historic defeat to Olympiakos on Tuesday. It was obvious that he was once again going to be asked about his decision to play David Ospina ahead of Petr Cech in the crucial Champions League game, but he simply [.
Wenger picked the right team against Olympiakos They didn't perform.. by LP9 I simply don't understand when some Arsenal fans mention that Wenger clearly underestimated or "gambled" against the Olympiakos team... because he was giving more importance in mind the Man United match at Sunday. Didn't he put the best centre back partnership (as [.
I know the Arsenal and Brazil centre back does not speak very good English yet, but maybe he could have a word with himself in Portuguese because he needs to start taking his own advice. And you could say the same thing about Per Mertesacker as well, apart from the Portuguese of course. I am [...]
The subject of rotating players in the Arsenal squad is a hot topic at the minute after Arsene Wenger chose to make a fair few changes, most notably bringing in Ospina for Cech, and losing a second Champions League group game in a row. Rotation is needed though, with injury problems and player fatigue a [.
There has been a lot of talk and debate as well as a hail of criticism for Arsene Wenger and his decision this week to start David Ospina instead of Petr Cech in the must win Champions League clash with Olympiacos. The decision was always going to be questioned but after the Colombian international dropped [.
Arsenal face big troubles against Man United by KM Hi guys. So the Champions League week two of the group stages is gone and the clubs from Manchester rescued some of England's pride at the competition after London failed miserably. Yesterday I watched the United game, because they are up next this Sunday at the [.
You might think that Arsenal should be scoring more goals, considering that with the likes of Santi Cazorla, Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey we have the most potent attack when it comes to creating chances. But I do not think that this is our main problem. The strikers were certainly guilty of missing [.
You have to wonder whether Arsene Wenger and his back room staff at Arsenal even bothered to do any homework on our latest Champions League tormentors Olympiacos, because it looked as though the Arsenal players had no real idea of what they would have to cope with. Just because Arsenal have always beaten the Greek [.
First of all I have a few words to say in support of the Arsenal manager. Having calmed down after being subjected to that ridiculous and frustrating Champions League defeat by Olympiacos, I can see things in a clearer way. And it is true that there is no way Arsene Wenger could have expected his [..
Yesterday, one of our readers, Adam Kemp, wrote a long and detailed article about why Arsene Wenger is holding back Arsenal chances of success. This generated a lot of responses, and The Analyzer wrote a comment that was even more detailed than Adam Kemp's article. He has asked me to post it as an article [.
Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez began the Premier League season slow. The Copa America success that he enjoyed with Chile during the summer appeared to have taken its toll early on. However, with a hat-trick against Leicester in the league last weekend and a goal and assist in the Champions League on Tuesday, the 26-year-old now appears [.
On the surface of it, the comments from the Arsenal defender Gabriel are all about him and his team mates, and how they react to the disappointing and damaging Champions League defeat against Olympiacos, but I think that the Brazilian is also referring to the Arsenal fans when he calls for calm ahead of the [.
