The Arsenal and Spain international defender Hector Bellerin had arguably his least effective game of the season for the Gunners in our hard fought but disappointing draw away with Premier League strugglers Norwich City. While there are various reasons for Arsenal getting just a point from the game, with our injury problems and the home [.
If you saw the recent comments from the Arsenal right back Hector Bellerin then you will know that the Spaniard is right on track with the recent thoughts of Arsene Wenger when it comes to the need for some more signings in the January transfer window. If you asked the average Arsenal fan, however, then [.
IS NORWICH AN EARLY WARNING FOR WENGER TO RETHINK THE PLAYING PATTERN?by Nikko Arsenal's fixtures, save for a self-inflicted Champions League 'do or die' tie with Olympiakos, up until playing Manchester City on December 21 should have been the kinder of the EPL top 5. Norwich, Sunderland and Aston Villa are all in the last [.
While Arsenal fans were plunged into the depths of despair yesterday after the ill fated 14 minute flight to face Norwich City, with our star man Alexis Sanchez picking up the hamstring injury, Laurent Koscielny limping off with a painful hip problem and Arsene Wenger revealing that Cazorla had finished the game on 'one leg', [.
Another Nightmare November for Arsenal by Sam P When the football media started to remind us about Arsenal's poor record in November in the Premier League under Arsene Wenger, with the stats showing that it was by far the worst month for the Gunners in terms of points per game, it seemed to be nothing [.
AUDIOPOST This is an interview with a very depressed Arsene Wenger after Arsenal's unimpressive visit to Carrow Road. It seems that Tuesday's win against Zagreb has tired the lads out and the lack of alternatives has left Wenger no choice but to overplay the first team. Le Prof is worried about Alexis, never mind [.
Even if, and I do not for a minute think that we will be this lucky, the injury problems picked up by Santi Cazorla, Laurent Koscielny and Alexis Sanchez during the draw at Norwich turn out to be minor, and they are able to play for Arsenal again soon, I firmly believe that our chances [...]
There is a lot of negativity from Arsenal fans And I expected it!by Sean O'H Everyone is pissed right off at the moment, and rightly so. I think we can usually let some stuff go with Wenger and the way he conducts his business within the club, but the injury to Alexis Sanchez has [...]
All Arsenal fans are up in arms about the Gunners dropping two points at Norwich yesterday, and even worse we have sustained three more injuries to key players that we can ill afford to do without right now. Arsene Wenger felt that Norwich played a defensive game and deserved the point. Le Prof told Arsenal.
All in all it was a nightmare day for Arsenal fans yesterday. We lost our best defender in the opening stages and we lost our most influential striker towards the end, as well as dropping two points at lowly Norwich. There is no doubt that we all have been expecting Alexis Sanchez to strain his [...]
There were some good performances from the Arsenal players at Carrow Road yesterday, despite the problems and the disappointing result, with Alexis Sanchez before his injury and Santi Cazorla doing well for Arsenal but I have gone for Mesut Ozil as my Man of the Match because he capped his game with our only goal.
Just about every Arsenal fan was begging Arsene Wenger to give Alexis Sanchez a rest, after he has had a torrid time (and lots of hamstring scares) in the last month or so, even while being overplayed on international duty. But now today our worst fears came true as Alexis was taken off with the [...
If Arsene Wenger was hoping that Arsenal had used up all our bad luck in the away defeat last week then he was sorely mistaken. The only positive for the Gunners from this week-s away day at a lower Premier League club is that we managed to come back to north London with a point [...]
Despite the concerns over the fitness of the heavily worked forward Alexis Sanchez, not many Arsenal fans or football observers really expected Arsene Wenger to leave his star man out of the Arsenal starting line up for the away game at Norwich City today and so it is no surprise to see the Chilean´s name [.
Many people would say that the rivalry between Jose Mourinho and Arsenal's very own Arsene Wenger is manufactured and inflamed by the media, but from what I have seen I would say there is a very real and deep malice between them, and their relationship is hardly going to be improved by the Chelsea boss' [.
He has not featured for club or country so far this season, so the Arsenal and England midfielder is understandably keen to make up for lost time when he has fully recovered from his latest injury lay-off, caused by an unlucky tackle in training on the eve of Arsenal's Community Shield win over Chelsea.
Many Arsenal fans were very underwhelmed when Joel Campbell got a run in the First XI as the right-winger due to simultaneous injuries to Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, but for today's game at Norwich both of those will be back in the Arsenal squad so Arsene Wenger now has to decide on which of [.
Now that Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have returned to the Arsenal squad, most Gooners were assuming that Joel Campbell would be returned to the bench while Wenger picks his favourites again, but it would appear that Le Prof is thinking that Campbell could hold down a regular place in the First XI.
It's game-day again, and it is Arsenal's big chance to prove that last weeks humiliating defeat to West Brom was nothing but an unlucky blip, as the Arsenal machine rolls on to the title. Norwich must be dreading a backlash from the Gunners after our bad luck at the Hawthorns, and having lost 5 of [.
I know I am probably being a bit too optimistic, but I can't help but get the feeling that Arsenal now have all the ingredients (and the fixtures) to go on a winning run to make a serious assault at the top of the Premiership. We have players returning from injury and more on the [...]
Without wanting to be too confident or allowing any element of complacency to creep into the Arsenal team ahead of this weekend's Premier League game, Arsene Wenger has spoken to Arsenal Player about his belief that the Gunners should return from Carrow Road to north London with another win and a very important three points [.
Arsenal have missed a couple of opportunities in the last couple of weeks where they could have opened up a small gap at the top of the Premier League, but thanks to Jamie Vardy breaking the Premiership record by scoring in 11 games in a row and also to Bastian Schweinsteiger for getting his first [.
Now this is an interesting question, and will probably spark a bit of debate as I have often heard on JustArsenal that we have usually lacked a player that can grab the others and galvanize them into action, especially when the Gunners heads fall after going behind. We all know Mikel Arteta is our captain, [.
Arsenal fans were screaming all summer for Arsene Wenger to buy another striker to give some real competition to Olivier Giroud, in the common knowledge that Danny Welbeck is totally unproven to be capable of being prolific, and also knowing that Theo Walcott has never managed to play a full season, as winger OR striker.
While Arsene Wenger and everyone else connected to Arsenal is hoping to see the sort of performance from the Gunners at Carrow Road this weekend that has become just about par for the course in the Premier League this season, the Norwich manager Alex Neil is clearly hoping that we have another game like the [.
The Arsenal and Spain international right back Hector Bellerin has already made himself an extremely popular player with the Arsenal fans, and of course with his manager Arsene Wenger. The Barcelona academy graduate has just kept getting better and better since the two injury problems that hit the unlucky Matthieu Debuchy last season gave him [.
This is one of the weirdest bits of Arsenal news this week. It has been revealed that the Gunners have decided to risk getting jet-lag this weekend by taking a plane from Luton Airport to Norfolk ahead of this Premier League fixture, and it may affect our players co-ordination in the match. No, but seriously.
After just one point from their last two League games, Arsenal really have to get back on track against Norwich City on Sunday just like they did in the Champions League this midweek. For a change our players will have had five days to prepare and, for a change Arsene Wenger will actually have to [..
Arsenal have already bounced back verey well from the defeat away to West Brom last week, putting in an emphatic and exciting performance in the Champions League to blow the Croatian club Dinamo Zagreb off the park with our fluent football and great goals. But the Gunners must do the same again this weekend as [.
Timing is a hugely important factor in many things and professional sport is no exception. Arsenal have been on the right and wrong side of some examples of this over the years, such as the timing of David Ospina's calanity in the Champions League this season which snatched the momentum form us and gave it [.
Us poor old Arsenal fans are quite used to seeing the Gunners having a bit of bad luck a few times a season, but last week's game against West Brom really took the biscuit! Arsene Wenger described it perfectly: "It was a bad result but on the day everything went against us," Le Prof [...]
Arsenal fans already have a great deal to thank these two former forwards for, with Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp having played in almost 800 Arsenal games between them and scored well over 300 goals for the Gunners, picking up 17 winners medals in the process. And now, according to a Metro report, we could [.
It is headlines like these that should make Arsenal fans worry. by Jansen Arsenal confident that star man Alexis Sanchez can shake off hamstring injury ahead of weekend trip to Norwich How often have we heard Wenger admit he might have brought a player back a bit too early from an injury? Or how often [.
The Arsenal manager is never going to come straight out and say that another club are a load of old tosh and are lucky to be where they are after some mind numbingly dull performances, but if Arsene Wenger did not think that way about Manchester United under Louis van Gaal then I would be [...]
Arsenal made up for last weekends crazy loss to West Brom by going all out to beat Dinamo Zagreb from the kickoff on Tuesday, and now that the Gunners have to score at least two goals in Athens in a fortnight Per Mertesacker believes that we just have to copy that template, and go all [...]
Of course Arsene Wenger will point out that it was him that signed the French midfielder Mathieu Flamini for Arsenal in the first place, back when he was a promising 20-year old just breaking through into the Marseille first team. And I'm sure that the prof will say that he was also in charge when [.
We have all seen how Alexis Sanchez can look totally knackered at the end of a game, and then three days later yet again run around like he has had a month's rest in the Caribean, and it has not escaped Arsene Wenger's attention either. "When he does something he does it 100 per cent," [...]
Arsene Wenger has been talking about his two main men of the moment in the build up to Arsenal's trip to face Norwich City in the Premier League this weekend, and while there are some doubts about whether our Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez will be fit enough to play, after what the boss described as [.
AUDIOPOST Arsenal face Norwich on Sunday and Arsene Wenger has given a full injury update of his opinion on which players will be ready for the game. He seems pretty certain that Oxlade-Chamberlain will be in the squad, but he says that Theo Walcott only started running on Tuesday so he is only at [.
Both Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker spoke about how the precarious position that the club will be in as we head into final game of the Champions League group phase. There are no gray areas and the fact that Arsenal have a clear and unequivocal task ahead, they believe, could help us [.
As the January transfer window draws ever closer the Arsenal fans are hoping, as always, that Arsene Wenger is ready to spend some serious money and sign the players that will help the Gunners to win the Premier League title that has been too long away from north London. But we are also starting to [.
Nice! We run onto a huge Xmas period of tough games! by Koss Now that Arsenal have given themselves a good chance of qualifying into the last 16 of the UCL, after a disastrous start by losing our first 2 games in the competition, I think some of us are still nervously assuming that we [...]
The chances of Arsene Wenger adding another two forward players to the current squad of Arsenal players are slim in the extreme. In fact it would probably take at least two more players on the injury list for that to happen and even then I would have my doubts. But there is a chance that [...]
It was a big plus point for Arsenal fans to hear this week that Aaron Ramsey was back in training after an injury lay off and Arsene Wenger had no hesitation in putting the name of the Wales international midfielder straight in to the match day squad, although Ramsey did not start but came one [...]
When Arsenal travel to Athens in a couple of weeks to face the Greek champions Olympiacos in the final Champions League group game, the job of Arsene Wenger will be a pretty easy one, or at least when it comes to the tactics to send the players out with anyway. There are no grey areas [...]
I was just watching the Champions League highlights again and while a lot of Arsenal fans, the players, the manager and most of the pundits on BT sport and in the papers yesterday were encouraged by the way the Gunners beat Dinamo Zagreb, our chances of making it into the next stage were given short [.
At the minute the tactics of Arsenal are pretty clear; get the ball to Mesut Ozil. Our creative genius is absolutely on fire this season and is proving all those pundits wrong that thought that he was not cut out for the Premier League. Having just set an all time Premier League record of providing [.
I almost made the title of this post Arsenal's treble Premier League title boost but the third thing would have been that Arsenal are playing well, apart from a few rogue games and results, and that surely has to be the case if the Gunners are to end the season on top of the table [...]
Just as the vultures of doubt in the football media were beginning to circle around Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal team, as they are always ready and willing to do at the least sign of weakness, the Gunners go and produce a fine and thrilling performance with three very good goals. While that now has [.
As usual the Arsenal fans have been getting some mixed messages from Arsene Wenger and the club about the extent of the injury to our French central midfield star Francis Coquelin and about how long we can expect it to be before the Gunners have his battling skills back in the team. A month, two [...
Arsenal fans with good memories are all too well aware of some of the club's more repetitive problems, although to be honest they do keep happening to keep this sort of thing nice and fresh in the minds of your average Gooner. And of course we always have those friendly faces in the football media [.
It would be just about typical of the way things are going for Arsenal at the moment if Arsene Wenger was to let the young Nigeria international forward Alex Iwobi go to one of the Championship clubs that want him on loan, only for yet another injury to hit the Arsenal front line and leave [...]
To be perfectly honest I would not have been all that surprised if Arsenal had fluffed their lines in the Champions League clash with Dinamo Zagreb, or at the very least made hard work of beating the Croatian team. We have had a bit of a hard time of it lately with injury problems mounting [...]
AUDIOPOST Arsene Wenger was in a very good mood after his makeshift Arsenal team destroyed Dinamo Zagreb 3-0 and he even made a couple of jokes with the assembled hacks after the game. Overall he was very happy with the performance and he now believes that the Gunners will now progress to the knockout [.
Whose hands is Arsenal's Champions eague place in? by OA Last night, we saw a sensational team performance against a fairly lacklustre Zagreb team who beat us away. It was as though we turned a corner in the champions league, turning into the classic Arsenal sort of Champions League Group stage performance with the likes [.
Petr Cech has vast experience in the Champions League and has come away with a winners medal and a runners-up medal with Chelsea. Now he wants to try and emulate that success with this Arsenal side, but first of all we have to reach the knockout stages. According to Petr, the final Group game in [...
The Arsenal and Germany play maker Mesut Ozil continued his fine run of form and capped another very good game with a well taken goal and could have scored more, but he was edged out for my Man of the Match award by the human perpetual motion machine that is Alexis Sanchez who also scored [...]
So the impossible dream is still alive and the Gunners now just have to go to Olympiakos and win by two clear goals to amazingly reach the Champions League knockout stages. It was strangely quiet in the stadium for most of the first half but Arsenal were dominant right from the off. It seemed a [...]
So we all know the background as to our injuries and the fact that Arsenal need to beat Zagreb while Munich are destroying Olympiakos (we hope!). The fact that we will be without Francis Coquelin and Mikel Arteta is hardly materiel in what should be a routine win for the Gunners under normal circumstances.
Stubborn is a word that Arsenal fans have often used to describe our long serving manager so it was no great surprise to hear Arsene Wenger talking about his belief that there is enough strength in depth in the Arsenal squad to be able to cope with the injury picked up by Francis Coquelin at [...]
The Champions League match between Arsenal and the Croatian club Dinamo Zagreb at the Emirates this evening was already shaping up to be a crunch clash, with the winner probably keeping their slim hopes of qualifying for the next phase of the competition alive and also putting themselves in a strong position to at least [.
Things can only get betterby Sam P So matchday is finally upon us and Arsenal can banish the negativity from Saturdays unlikely defeat at West Brom by getting revenge on Zagreb. Not only to regain the feelgood factor, but also to give us a real chance of going through to the knockout rounds if Bayern [.
It is obvious that UEFA don't like being criticised and they have made that abundantly clear to Arsenal after Arsene Wenger spoke out about playing against "many doped teams" in his career. Most recently one of Dinamo Zagreb's players, Arijan Ademi, was banned for four years after being tested positively for taking an anabolic steroid [.
Stop worrying! Arsenal are fine! by Sam P You would think Arsenal had lost their last five games if you listened to the ranting going on in Arsenal blogs over the last few days. The fact is that we totally dominated West Brom and the rub of the green was just against us on the [...]
You've got to be in it to win it by DP As we enter our fifth Champions League Group game, we have to face the facts. We have lost three of our four games so far and have a -4 goal difference. There is very little chance of any of the big teams we may [...]
Mow that we have all digested the devastating news that Francis Coquelin will be out for at least two months (that means much longer....) an Mikel Arteta is also out for the short-term, which leaves Matthieu Flamini as the only recognised defensive midfielder in the squad. Arsene Wenger may have said "I will do what [.
Wenger must stop gambling by Jansen. Wenger is a very good manager, It is hard to doubt that, buthis hugedownfall is his lack of ambition. He seems to prefer gambling over improving the odds. It was a gamble having not boughta quality striker for several years in my opinion.It was arguably an even bigger gamble [.
To be perfectly plain, Arsenal do not have a lot of options about who to bring into the starting line up to replace the newly injured Arsenal players Mikel Arteta and Francis Coquelin, so the French midfielder was always going to get the job anyway, but I do feel that Mathieu Flamini could be the [..
It is still a mystery how Arsenal lost to West Brom after being totally in control for the whole 90 minutes and having nearly three quarters of the possession. Anything that could go wrong did go wrong, and it seemed inevitable that Santi Cazorla would slip up when he took that penalty. Petr Cech was [.
There is nothing but bad news and bad luck for Arsenal and their fans at the moment. The injuries are piling up, and now that Francis Coquelin and Mikel Arteta have joined the ranks of the walking wounded we really are down to the bare bones of the squad. Other than those two, the Gunners [...]
We are still waiting for a more detailed progress report on the injury to the combative French midfielder Francis Coquelin, but in the Arsenal press conference today ahead of the home Champions League game against Dinamo Zagreb, Arsene Wenger gave the latest update and it is bad news for the Gunners, as we expected it [.
I know that the name of Mikel Arteta is not exactly flavour of the month with Arsenal fans right now and to be honest the Spaniard would probably agree that the away game with West Brom this weekend was a real low point in his career, but I am going to defend him anyway. First [...]
Even if Arsenal had come away from the Hawthorns with a point (and yes Santi Cazorla and Joel Campbell I am looking at you) then all the talk among Arsenal fans and the football media today would not have been so much about what went wrong against West Brom and whether this is the start [...]
In Arsenal's first two Champions League games against Zagreb and Olympiakos, Arsene Wenger played practically his full reserve team and still expected to win both of them. But, as we found out, we lost all six points and now have a mountain to climb to qualify out of the Group and into knockout stages.
This has been a whirlwind season so far, not just for Arsenal but for all the so-called top clubs. But obviously we are only worried about our own club. We have our usual massive injury list but we should still have won yesterday's game against West Brom. Although Theo Walcott has only scored twice this [.
Arsene Wenger seems to be quite stoic about Arsenal's amazing defeat to West Brom yesterday afternoon, and he seems resigned to the fact that the Gunners just didn't have a lot of luck during the game, which is quite true I guess. In this interview with TalkSport after the match he is quite clear that [.
What else could go wrong for Arsenal? by DN We may have had an awful day today, but the worst is yet to come when we find out the result of the scan on Francis Coquelin's knee tomorrow or Monday. He, for sure, will not be playing on Tuesday and probably nor will his backup [...]
The Choice of Player Replacing Coquelin Would Best Portray Our Title Hopes by NO With the injury to Francis Coquelin, Arsenal's title credentials face placing on ice, as far as Arsenal fans are concerned. And the fans have reason to worry as Coquelin has been a massive revelation since his return from a cut-short loan [.
It was not hard to pick the best Arsenal player from the disappointing defeat away to West Brom, as Alexis Sanchez was head and shoulders above the rest and we can only regret that his hard work and brilliance were not matched by those around him and that he did not get any of the [...]
West Brom loss a setback not a knockout blow for Arsenal by Sam P I am not going to try and sugar coat the performance or result for Arsenal away to West Brom yesterday. It was poor and it was definitely a setback in our attempts to regain the Premier League trophy that has been [...]
I am not trying to put all the blame for the Arsenal result on our club captain Mikel Arteta, by any means, even though he did give away the free kick that led to the equaliser and scored the own goal that denied us any points at all. I feel for the Spanish midfielder I [...]
It was certainly a crazy day for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger was obviously very annoyed during the game, but when you see a stat that says the Gunners had 73% possession you can only be left scratching your head as to what went wrong. We had a good team out on paper and when Olivier [...]
I can't imagine a worst day for Arsenal fans to return after the international break. The only plus was that Olivier Giroud scored yet again, but it wasn't enough to stop us losing 2-1 to a typical Tony Pulis side, but it could have been so different. If Campbell had have been a bit more [...]
This was always going to be a game that Arsenal simply wanted to get over and done with and move on, but we also needed to beat West Brom away to make sure that we stayed at least level on top of the Premier League and did not allow the current injury list to derail [...]
There is one slight surprise for Arsenal fans in the starting line up of Arsene Wenger today, although the use of our England international left back Kieran Gibbs in a more advanced role on front of the Spaniard Nacho Monreal has been tried before and with a fair amount of success, although it is normally [.
Even though the Arsenal creative genius that is Mesut Ozil would not have played for Germany this week anyway, because their international friendly with Holland was called off after a suspicious package was found at the stadium in Hannover and there was a real focus on this sort of thing after the awful terrorist attacks [.
In an ideal world Arsene Wenger would be able to say that he was going to give the Arsenal and Chile star Alexis Sanchez a couple of weeks off. Having only played for one season in the English Premier League and having had to be very busy for the last two summers with the World [...]
A lot of Arsenal fans are worried about the current injury situation at the club for two reasons. First of all there is the concern that we will not be able to continue the brilliant start to the season and could rop some valuable Premier League points over the next few weeks and secondly there [...]
Ever since Arsene Wenger took over as the manager of Arsenal Football Club almost two decades ago now, there has been a strong French element to the Gunners squad and that is no different today. And you don't need me to tell you that France and it´s people are having a tough time of it [...]
I imagine that the people of Europe are going to have to get used to the fact of increased security at airports, stations and any big public events, and going to an Arsenal match is going to be no exception. The club have liased with the police and are stepping up the security prescence in [...]
When one door close another one opens so they say and the lengthy Arsenal injury list that Arsene Wenger has to come with at the minute means that the door to the first team could be opened to a few of the young Gunners at the club for the game away to West Brom this [...]
Arsenal's newest young star Hector Bellerin has been absolutely amazing since he was pushed into the Gunners First XI a year ago, so much so that he was awarded the Catalan Young Player of the Year. His opposite number in the Arsenal back line, Nacho Monreal, who will be 30 in February, believes that the [.
Being a Gooner it is easy to get wrapped up in all things Arsenal and ignore what is going on at the other clubs trying to win the Premier League title. The long and short of it is, however, that even though Arsenal will go to the top of the table if we win away [...]
Arsenal would be facing a very tricky and crucial first week back after the latest international break even if Arsene Wenger did not have to cope without six regular first team players (it was seven but at least the boss has revealed that Hector Bellerin is fit again). Two Premier League away games, at West [.
Now that we have had all the players returning from the internationals, and have been given a full injury update by Arsene Wenger, how would you pick the Arsenal starting XI to face West Brom on Saturday? The best news we've had is that Hector Bellerin will be back on the firm, but that has [...]
I must admit that I feel sorry for the Arsenal and Colombia international keeper, even though David Ospina did drop a clanger so big that is sent shockwaves around the world of football. That horror moment against Olympiacos in the Champions League could not have come at a worse moment either as we had just [.
Whereas this could be potentially very good news for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal, I cannot help but wonder what the poor manager of the Spanish La Liga club Celta Vigo thinks about the statement made by his top striker Nolito this week. The 29-year old front man has been in scintillating form for the club [.
Arsenal are preparing to face West Bromwich Albion tomorrow afternoon, and with the Baggies 12 points below the Gunners in the table we should expect to have an easy run out, but Arsene Wenger has made it clear that there is no room for complacency in any League game this season, especially against a team [.
The young Spaniard Hector Bellerin was forced into the Gunners senior side last season due to the injury problems of Matthieu Debuchy and the inconsistencies of Calum Chambers, and it seems that the Arsenal defensive coach Steve Bould thought it was too early for the lad, according to the Gunners legend Lee Dixon.
It was probably due to the boring international break that the media have jumped on the Arsenal rumours about Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez being given a pay rise and being signed to new contract extensions, but according to Arsene Wenger they haven't even been mentioned so far and won't even commence talks until the [.
While Arsenal are currently struggling to cope with a number of injury problems, although it looks like we will soon be back to something like full strength, our next opponents in the Premier League will have just their keeper Ben Foster unavailable to Tony Pulis. Having said that, the difference in the two clubs on [.
He has not played much for Arsenal recently, with his only two starts so far this season coming in the Champions League and Capital One cup, but at least our club captain Mikel Arteta is fit and available to come in if we need him. And with the current injury situation at the club, the [...]
Arsenal fans could be forgiven for hoping that our England international striker Danny Welbeck suffers a setback on his road to recovery from the injury that has kept him out of action since the latter stages of last season. Because if that is what it takes to get Arsene Wenger to splash the cash in [.
The latest injury news from Arsene Wenger is that the only player that he has available once more from the injury list is the Spanish right back Hector Bellerin, which is a handy boost as the Gunners head to the west midlands to take on Tony Pulis' West Bromwich Albion. But that news was mitigated [.
As much as I am trying to ignore my wife's talk about Christmas being on the horizon, that time of year is slowly creeping up on us, so I thought I'd bring a run-down of the speculation surrounding our beloved club. Alexandre Pato was once highly rated on the continent, while impressing as a youngster [.
We are all well aware that the last few years have seen Arsenal struggling to cope with a lot more players and playing days missing due to various injury problems than any of our rivals. I remember seeing a chart last season showing the injury situation for Premier League clubs over the previous 10 years [.
Arsene Wenger must have been beside himself after hearing that the Arsenal and Chile international forward Alexis Sanchez had played the full 90 minutes of a bad tempered World Cup qualifier against Uruguay, despite his national coach Jorge Sampaoli revealing before the game in Montevideo that Alexis had picked up a knock to his calf [.
Arsene Wenger has always maintained that the most important factor in a successful team is to keep your core players in the side for as long as possible. Right now I'm guessing that most Arsenal fans would agree that Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are our two most influential players at the moment, and it [.
So much for Arsenal fans hoping and praying to get most of our players back uninjured after the international break, and some of our currently injured ones to be returning to the squad, but Alas!, Arsene Wenger has burst our bubble today. Oxlade-Chamberlain and Aaron Ramsey were expected to be available, but it seems the [.
I for one am glad that the next few fixtures coming up for Arsenal in the Premier League are against teams that are struggling and so they should, theoretically, be easier to beat. It is not as if the Gunners are struggling, far from it in fact as we are the division´s form side with [...]
Well when I say ultimate, this recognition for one of the current Arsenal stars does come from a former Gunner who was probably the last to do the job well enough to help the Gunners to a title. Gilberto Silva certainly did that, playing in 32 Premier League games in the season when Arsenal were [...
While it appears as though the whole world is determined to stand up and show support and solidarity with the people of France after the horrors of the terrorist attacks on Paris last Friday, some Arsenal players were involved in the football friendly between France and England last night that brought the events into even [.
Arsenal's Alexis Is EPL's WORST Player In Possession! by RC Stats released by fantasy football game www.oulala.com certainly appear to back up rumours that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is ready to give Alexis Sánchez a mid-season break. Oulala's stats, sourced directly from partners Opta, show that the Chilean has been the poorest player in possession [.
Let's be honest, most Arsenal fans are not very confident that the Gunners will keep going all the way to the end of the season and win the title, but this is solely a result of our previous experiences where Arsenal have faded only to finish in 3rd or 4th place. But since the arrival [...]
Arsenal chasing midfielders in January? by Frank I think that most Arsenal fans would still say that another forward player should be the priority for Arsene Wenger when the winter transfer window comes around in January, even though Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott have been going along nicely and we have Danny Welbeck [.
There is a Nigerian striker that has been in the football news lately, firstly for being named Most Valuable Player and Golden Boot winner as his country won the U17 World Cup, and secondly for being tracked by Chelsea on the rumour pages. Kelechi Nwakali has also been linked with a move to Man City [.
All Arsenal fans will now breathe a collective sigh of relief as Alexis Sanchez has come through his final game of this break, although it was a bad-tempered game (as it always is when you play Uruguay) and the Gunners superstar had to play the full 90 minutes for the second time in four days [...]
Quite a lot of Arsenal fans still believe that we still need to bring in a DM in January, as Arteta and Flamini are hardly adequate cover for Francis Coquelin, but according to the recent Arsenal transfer rumours we are likely to need at least two more replacements for out-going players. Arsene Wenger refused to [.
I doubt very much that the Arsenal and Czech Republic international keeper was deliberately trying to make his former manager and team mates feel any worse about things. Petr Cech did, after all, spend 11 years at Chelsea and he was there when Jose Mourinho first came to take the Premier League by storm.
Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger will be hoping and praying that this early return from injury for one of the currently crocked Arsenal stars will be in time for our next Premier League game, which is away to the struggling West Bromwich Albion of Tony Pulis. I would say that it looks pretty good for [.
Well there is an interesting story about the FIFA elections at last. The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger thinks that this selection process will ultimately make things even harder for the individual clubs that have most of their players in their respective international teams as well. He reckons that it is now obvious that the World [.
We will have to wait and see whether the Arsenal and England defender Kieran Gibbs is selected by his national manager Roy Hodgson for the friendly game against France at Wembley tonight, which is bound to be an odd and emotionally charged encounter after the terrible terrorist attacks in Paris, but with England wracked by [.
We are six weeks away from Christmas, so the speculation is starting to increase slightly (it never stops), so we thought we'd give you a brief update on the latest pieces doing the rounds. Spanish reports are claiming that we are ready to launch a £21 Million bid to sign Jese Rodriguez from Real Madrid.
When Jack Wilshere was a youngster breaking into the Arsenal team in 2010/11, he was constantly hailed as the future of Arsenal and England, but ever since that first full season (in which Arsene Wenger now says that he overplayed him) Jack has never been uninjured long enough to play hardly half a season.
Although there is at least good reason to hope that the Arsenal injury list will soon be a lot shorter than it is right now, Arsene Wenger still has a problem on his hands. When the club football gets back underway after the annoying international break is over, the Gunners could have as many as [...
Chile face Uruguay tonight in the World Cup Qualifiers and, as we all predicted, Arsenal's superstar Alexis Sanchez is already suffering from a calf strain after playing in the draw with Columbia. The Chile manager already knew that Alexis was in a weakened condition when he arrived in South America but he played him for [.
"As long as I keep shooting, one is bound to go in." Alberto Gilardinho. The Italian striker's philosophy that the more shots you take, the more goals you will score. Not quite, Alberto. Fantasy football game www.oulala.com have released the shots to goals ratios of every Premier League club so far this season.
There is not a lot that Arsene Wenger can do to affect what happens over the next few days to the various Arsenal players currently on international duty. All the Arsenal fans and manager can do is hope that no more Gunners join the lengthy injury list. Even if we are not struck with more [...]
The Arsenal and England international star Jack Wilshere must be desperate to get back out on a football pitch and start doing what he does best, for both club and country. But he also knows that he must be a little bit cautious in order to give himself the best possible chance of avoiding yet [...]
It was by far the biggest and longest running Arsenal transfer rumour of the summer, one Arsene Wenger had completed the surprise signing of the brilliant Czech Republic keeper Petr Cech from our direct Premier League rivals Chelsea (well we thought they were going to be rivals lol). But Arsenal fans every where were left [.
The Arsenal dressing room might be a slightly tense place to be once all the Gunners away on duty with their various countries are back together after the current international break, at least it could be a bit uncomfortable for the young Spanish right back Hector Bellerin. Maybe his Arsenal team mates will not be [.
Arsenal are going great guns right now, in the Premier League at least. We won't talk about the disappointments in the Champions League and Capital One cup as long as the Gunners keep firing in the EPL title race. There are many factors behind the current league success and you have to give Arsene Wenger [.
The international break always makes the media and bloggers more creative when it comes to Arsenal transfer rumours, but you can't get more inventive than this one. It concerns the World's very best player, Barcelona's Lionel Messi. The Argentinian superstar and his father are being dragged through the courts in pain for tax evasion, and [.
After the international break, Arsenal have a seemingly "easier" run of fixtures, but I am seriously hoping that we have Hector Bellerin and Oxlade-Chamberlain back in the squad as well as we were looking very thin before the break. The game against West Brom is coming up at the weekend, and with Alexis Sanchez certain [.
Arsenal's brilliant summer signing Petr Cech has been stunningly consistent for the Gunners since his arrival from Chelsea. He has been one of the big reasons fr Chelsea's past successes and now he is doing the same for the Gunners. Awesome player, cool, calm and confident no matter what strikers throw at him.
I know that there is nothing that can be done about it now and the fact that Arsenal have not lost a single Premier League game since then, almost two months ago now, and are locked on the same number of points with Man City at the top of the table, makes it easier to [...]
I am going to go out on a limb here and say that Arsenal do not have to worry about Jose Mourinho and Chelsea as a Premier League title rival anymore this season, even though the 15 points that separate us and them at the minute is not insurmountable, the fact that there are also [...]
The international break has given us very little in the way Arsenal rumours to report over the past week, and even on a Sunday, when the papers are generally rifewith pure gossip, I am only bringing you threespeculative transfers. Michy Batshuayi has been in tremendous form this season, and is being heavily linked with a [.
Although Matthieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta have both returned from injury, they are both getting long in the teeth and are unlikely to be able to play all season, and most Arsenal fans are still clamouring for a younger stronger defensive midfielder to be able to step in if (god forbid) anthing untoward happens to [.
Arsene Wenger still has a couple of years left on his contract and I can't see him leaving Arsenal any time soon, but the Gunners legend Robert Pires thinks that Arsenal should be preparing for the possibility well in advance. Thierry Henry has started training the Academy players now and Pires thinks he could be [.
The Arsenal defender Calum Chambers arrived from Southampton as a right-back, but Arsene Wenger thinks he is more suited to being used in central defence. This certainly makes more sense considering that we already have Hector Bellerin and Matthieu Debuchy at right-back and the we will have Carl Jenkinson returning to the squad next summer.
The Arsenal left back Nacho Monreal is one of the few regular first teamers that is not involved for his country during the current international duty, which is good for us with all the concerns about injury problems, but it must seem strange to the 29-year old who is in the form of his left [...]
The Arsenal and Germany international star Mesut Ozil has been one of the most impressive and effective performers so far this season in the Premier League. In fact you have all probably seen the extremely impressive statistics that show our number 11 to have been the best player in a creative role from all of [.
When Arsenal bought Yaya Sanogo from the French side Auxerre three seasons ago, he was hailed as a hot young talent and was expected to flourish under Arsene Wenger's tutelage. But after two years of doing not-very-much at Arsenal, he was sent out on loan at Dutch side Ajax, where it was hoped he would [.
The Importance of Aaron Ramsey. Galen Sona Another boring week of international football. Today I want to look at the importance of Aaron Ramsey "Rambo" to Arsenal. Truth be told we were all critical of Wenger's decision to play Ramsey out wide. I couldn't understand such a decision. But after watching our last four games [.
It was revealed by Martin Keown earlier today that he believed that the hardness of the pitches in Arsenal's training ground is one of the causes why the Gunners get more injuries than any other side in the Premiership, and now another Arsenal old-boy has come out in support of his view. Ian Wright says [.
With the international break upon us, and another eight days until our next match (against West Brom), I thought I'd give you a run down of the latest pieces of speculation surrounding our beloved club. The Mirror is claiming that we have joined Manchester United and Tottenham in the bid to sign Ayoze Perez from [.
I think that most, or at least a decent proportion, of Arsenal fans would admit that they would still like to see him score more goals, but the brilliant way that our Germany international Mesut Ozil has kicked off the current season has seen the Gooners and the football media become fulsome in the praise [.
Why does it always seem to be that as well as being hit with terrible luck on the injury front on a regular basis, Arsenal often lose a number of players from the same part of the team? So instead of losing a centre back and the back up getting a chance, we lose two [...]
The unbelievable atrocities in Paris last night has filled the world with sadness, and there could be some serious repurcussions affecting the football world as well. The bombs that were let off outside the Stade De France, where France were playing a friendly match against Germany, were only a small part of the city wide [.
The Spanish international midfielder Santi Cazorla has been a big part of the way Arsenal have performed this season, controlling the central midfield area with his silky skills to add to the steel of Francis Coquelin. The little magician has done a brilliant job of proving that he can hold down that tricky role amid [.
The Polish keeper Wojciech Szczesny's Arsenal career took a rapid downhill turn last New Year when he committed two howlers to gift three points to Souhampton. That was bad enough but then straight after the game he was caught having a sneaky cigarette in the showers and was subsequently dropped in favour of David Ospina.
The Arsenal left back Nacho Monreal is one of the few regular first teamers that is not involved for his country during the current international duty, which is good for us with all the concerns about injury problems, but it must seem strange to the 29/year old who is in the form of his left [...]
Of course we Arsenal fans are a lot more concerned about the fitness or injury situation of our big name players on international duty, with Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud, Laurent Koscielny and Santi Cazorla of particular concern as they appear for the respective national teams. So it would be nice if these Arsenal stars are [.
The Arsenal and Chile international star Alexis Sanchez was already in the red and running on empty as we headed into this current international break, and this was acknowledged by the coach of his national side. So Jorge Sampaoli suggested that he was going to have to be careful with the exhausted Arsenal forward.
There has been much discussion over why the Gunners seem to suffer from more long term injuries than any other club in the Premier League, and there have been questions asked of our fitness regimes and and even Arsene Wenger's (or even England's) coaching methods, which teach players the Arsenal way from a very young [.
It looks like Arsenal fan's hopes of having many players back after the international break look destined to be dashed, according to a report by John Cross in the Mirror. Arsene Wenger seemed optimistic a few days ago, but now it appears that only Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Hector Bellerin are expected to return to the [.
The Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud did not have much luck in front of goal at the beginning of the season, and it only seemed a matter of time before Arsene Wenger gave Theo Walcott the opportunity to prove himself, which he did in good fashion. The Frenchman then found himself on the bench on a [...
The subject of cheating in sport, including football, is a pretty hot topic right now, so it is no real surprise to hear the Arsenal manager giving his own thoughts on the subject. But Arsene Wenger may have overstepped the mark this time, or at least the imaginary mark laid down by the English FA. [.
All the naysayers are always complaining that Arsenal are always aiming for the Top Four without actually having the ambition to finish any higher, but Nacho Monreal clearly remembers us being top of the League at Christmas just a couple of years ago (do you?) but faded away in the closing stages as injuries got [.
Arsene Wenge has been at Arsenal for 19 years, but he hasn't assembled a team good enough to beat the moneybags teams for many years, but his only signing in the last transfer window, Petr Cech, believes that the team we have now has the wherewithal to go all the way. "We started very well [...]
We might not know until the last few days of the January transfer window whether Arsenal will have any new players available for the second half of the season. Arsene Wenger himself might not know as there are a lot of things that could happen between now and then, with injury problems, loss of form [.
While Arsene Wenger and every Arsenal fan in the world, except perhaps for the embarrassing 'celebrity' motormouth fan Piers Morgan, will be hoping that Aaron Ramsey is fit and ready to return to club action when the Gunners travel to face West Bron after the international break, it could be the exact opposite for Joel [.
The ex-Real Madrid star Mesut Ozil took a while to get acclimatised to being an Arsenal player in the more physical Premier League after La Liga, but he used his time off through injury last season to bulk up his upper body and his extra body strength has paid off since his return. He has [...]
Arsene Wenger in depth interview on Life, Arsenal and Everything When I first saw this I thought about taking small pieces of it and making short discussions on snippets of Wenger's thoughts, but I then realised that this had to be read as a whole to get a deep understanding our how our great manager [.
Arsenal's Mr Duracell Alexis Sanchez has finally ran out of batteries and has looked more and more exhausted with every game he plays. I wrote an article recently about how much I was worried about the Chilean hitman suffering from burnout if he plays any more games, but the problem with Alexis is that he [.
When Danny Welbeck joined Arsenal 15 months ago it was a bit of a surprise (aren't all Arsenal's transfers surprises?) but we had high hopes of him settling in quickly as he had played over 140 games for Man United and was becoming a regular in the England team. What we didn't expect was for [...]
If you had to hazard a guess as to which of the current Arsenal playing staff was sitting on top of the chart for the best performing player, I reckon that most Arsenal fans or football fans in general would go for one of the attacking stars, such as Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez or Olivier [...]
I am only trying to read between the lines here and could be completely wrong about the reasons for the Arsenal manager not even making an offer top Real Madrid this summer for their France international striker Karim Benzema, despite there having been plenty of hints about the possible transfer of the star to Arsenal.
Prudent January Window Could Win the League for Arsenal by NO No doubt, Arsenal's first IX in a case where all the players are available is a team that can beat anyone, anywhere. Unfortunately, when the first IX is facing difficulties such as injuries, this is the time when Arsenal truly loses out on their [.
This is perhaps another indication that the current Arsenal team are the best we have seen in years and look like having the best chance of winning the Premier League since Robert Pires and his team mates acheived what many said could not be done and managed to the whole season without a league defeat.
I am not sure if the former Arsenal and England international striker had someone specific in mind when he said this, but having listened to some of the opinions put forward in the football media by Ian Wright about the problems of the Gunners in recent years, I would hazard a guess that Arsene Wenger [.
Arsenal now v Invincibles This is completely off any topic we have discussed/debated on here recently, as I was just reminiscing about our incredible Invincible season. I was just looking at a few of our players from our current squad and comparing them with some of our Invincibles! To be honest we have had some [.
Many of us Arsenal fans have been here before over the last 10 years, only for something like all the injury problems and our heavy losses in some big away games of two years ago to come along and leave the latest challenge for the Premier League trophy in tatters. Up until this season, however, [...
When Jack Wilshere burst into the Arsenal first team at the tender age of 16, he followed Theo Walcott by being hailed as the "Future of England" with his bulldog attitude and limitless confidence but, like Walcott, his development has been severely hampered by injuries. Sometimes it seems ike he has been at Arsenal for [.
The cool and combative young Arsenal midfield star Francis Coquelin has actually appeared for his country, making three appearances for the under 17s, five for the under 18s, 16 for the under 19s, 12 for the under 20s and seven for the under 21s of France. In fact he was a key player for his [...]
Of course Arsenal fans would have much preferred to inflict yet another defeat on our north London rivals Tottenham at the weekend. With Man City also failing to win though, and with the Gunners fighting back to stop the spuds from winning, we can at least head into the international break level on points at [.
Okay I am writing this post under pressure because it was mentioned in a comment by Fatboy, but the fact is that this is probably just the start of the silly-transfer-story season, so we can expect a few more of these up to the New Year and beyond. Soooo, apparently the Man United manager Louis [...]
Despite the disappointment from most, if not all, Arsenal fans over the failure of the club to sign a single new outfield player in the summer transfer, there was also unanimous support for the manager over his decision to make the Czech Republic international number one Petr Cech his priority target.
Being held to a draw in the local derby yesterday could have inflicted some real damage on Arsenal and our quest for the Premier League title this season, but thanks to Aston Villa managing a draw for their new manager and former Gunner Remi Garde, we find ourselves still level on points with Man City [.
It was a lot better than a defeat of course, and so the Arsenal fans, players and manager owe a big debt of thanks to Mesut Ozil for the assist and Kieran Gibbs for the finish in the latter stages of the north London derby which rescued a point against the spuds. But a draw [...]
After putting in another match winning performance for Arsenal, depending on whether or not you agree with the player ratings from Just Arsenal earlier that is, Mesut Ozil continues to confound his critics and help to keep the Gunners in strong contention for the Premier League trophy. The assist he provided for Kieran Gibbs to [.
The Costa Rican forward Joel Campbell has made it clear in the past that he would rather move away from Arsenal to get first team football rather than sit on the bench at the Emirates, but Arsene Wenger refused to let him leave again this summer. Now he has got his chance as injuries have [...]
You would think there was an air of depression around Arsenal at the moment with all our injury and after the humiliation in Munich last week, but the fact is that the Gunners had a brilliant October, including the massive win over the so-called "unbeatable" Bayern Munich. Arsenal also had wins against Manchester United, Watford, [.
Arsenal should sell moaning Debuchy ASAP by Frank This is a tricky subject as poor Mathieu Debuchy was unluckily injured soon after joining Arsenal and made only 11 starts for the Gunners last season, and he could only watch from the sidelines as Hector Bellerin stepped up and made the position his own.
Everyone with an interest in the success of Arsenal Football Club should be crossing their fingers and toes and hoping that the next time Arsene Wenger has to select a starting line up, which will be away to West Bromwich Albion after the two week international break, he will be able to name a fully [.
First of all you have to decide whether the former Arsenal forward and current TV pundit Charlie Nicholas has a point and if he does, whether it is a big problem for Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players to overcome. The fact that the Scot made his claim about the Gunners before we struggled to [...]
Injuries really hit us, but Arsenal couldn't afford to lose this one by KM Hello guys. The international break is finally here and we desperately needed it. We put out a squad featuring players you'd hardly see if it wasn't for so many injuries and I thought that we were both physically and mentally tired.
It really hits home how badly Arsenal's injury list is affecting the squad, when Kieran Gibbs admits that he thought he was probably the most likeliest to be sent on when the Gunners were searching for an equalizer against Tottenham. Gibbs was asked after the game if he expected to be used up front, and [.
With Arsenal having an injury list as long as it has ever been, we were all jumping for joy that they would get an extra couple of weeks to recover while the internationals were on, but I'm not so sure it is all going to be good, and nor is Arsene Wenger. Today we had [...]
Considering that Arsenal had a daunting collection of players on the treatment table, and we started the game against Tottenham with an Alexis running on empty, a Cazorla that couldn't see straight and a Koscielny that wasn't 100% fit, the fact we ground out a draw against our bitter enemies begins to look impressive.
Arsenal have a kind run! by SOH After Munich I was very much angry at the way we got beaten, but understood we were outplayed by a great team. So I put up an article directed towards Wenger and Stan and not the team, as I do believe with a fully fit squad we have [...]
Without Santi Cazorla out of the game, Arsenal were getting battered from all sides by Tottenham and not getting any service to our isolated forwards, so Per Mertesacker was very pleased when Matthieu Flamini replaced Santi at half time, and even more pace was injected into the team when Kieran Gibbs entered the attack force.
Two points lost or one point gained? by OA As Arsenal supporters we all have that one hope to win titles such as the league, but there are many things that we disagree on. However, one thing that admittedly all Arsenal fans can agree on is the fact that we were shocking against Spurs. The [...]
Arsenal were on the ropes against Tottenham for most of the first half, and it seems that effectively we were playing with ten men for the whole 45 minutes as there was something very wrong with Santi Cazorla from the start. Considering that, we actually did well to only be one goal down by half [...
The Gunners started the first half in lively fashion, but Spurs catch up with the pace and it is exciting end to end stuff for the first 20 minutes. Chances from both sides but Campbell doesn't quite look up to speed as yet, but does earn some whining from Rose when his sleeve brushed his [...]
We are now entering the the final countdown to our home game against Tottenham, and the starting line-up has now beemn confirmed. As I was hoping for in my pre-game preview, Laurent Koscielny is back in the side to shore p the defence. I certainly feel more confident with this great bit of news. Per [.
This has been one of those crazy years where us Arsenal fans can always expect the unexpected. We started off by winning every single game in pre-season and breaking Arsene Wenger's awful record against Jose Mourinho in the Community Shield. This win cemented our belief that this really could be Arsenal's year, but what do [.
Just a few hour to go to one of the most important games in Arsenal's season, and the nerves are building to a crescendo. I am sure that Man City will dispose of Aston Villa earlier in the day (well you never know!) and Arsenal will be under pressure to keep pace ahead of the [...]
Arsene Wenger does not set long term goals so early in the season, but he always says that you should look at the table after ten games to see which teams are in the title hunt. At this point we are joint top ahead of our crucial North London derby, having already played most of [...]
It is always a high-profile emotional affair when Arsenal take on Spurs, and it is the one game that both sets of fans really hate losing. But this time it is even more important, with the Gunners fighting for the League title and Tottenham hoping to jump into the Top Four if they get all [...]
The Arsenal transfer rumour mill is slowly getting into gear and building up speed for the full frontal assault that will hit us when the January transfer window is about to open. With a worryingly long injury list hitting the Arsenal squad, many fans will be expecting Arsene Wenger to sign at least one new [.
Arsene Wenger has not always seen eye to eye with other managers of various national teams, such as the furore and frustration caused when Didier Deschamps over-played Abou Diaby when the injury prone midfielder had only just returned to club football after a long lay off. But I think that the coach of Germany, Joachim [.
The North London derby between Arsenal and our great enemies Tottenham is now less than 24 hours away, but I am already feeling the butterflies. This is probably one of the most even-matched derbies for a while on current form, with Arsenal only losing two games in the League so far, but Tottenham bettering that [.
On the one hand, Arsenal have finally started to convince the many doubters in the football world that we are now a squad that has the balance of talent, steel and all the other things it takes to win the marathon that is the Premier League title race. On the other hand Arsene Wenger has [...]
Despite the modern world of football, especially when dealing with a big club like Arsenal, being a lot more intrusive into the personal lives of the players, we still do not really know too much about what our stars are like away from the training and playing of games and the interviews they give to [.
There is very little that Arsenal can do to keep our Champions League hopes alive other than win the next game, which is against the Croatian champions Dinamo Zagreb at the Emirates stadium after the international break. After that game the Gunners will be hoping that we still have a chance to go through, even [.
There is a decent case to be argued for both of the different tactics that Arsenal could employ against the spuds in the north London derby on Sunday, but which one is the best and which one will Arsene Wenger want his players to use? The good thing is that Arsenal have shown ourselves well [...]
The Arsenal keeper Petr Cech knows all about the rivalries of big London derbies from his many games against Tottenham while he was at Chelsea, but this is his first NLD with Arsenal and he is looking forward to maintaining the Gunners superiority over Spurs. The Spuds have never finished above us since Arsene Wenger [.
The Gunners midfielder Mesut Ozil, who is on a great run of form this season with 9 assists and two goals so far, feels that Arsene Wenger's side is like a family but listen to what the German international calls Francis Coquelin. "I know that Santi is a very technically-gifted player, just as Francis is," [.
Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players will already have been well aware that one of the biggest threats that we will have to cope with against Tottenham in the latest north London derby will be their England international striker Harry Kane. We found out to our cost how sharp the young forward can be last [.
Arsenal should be happy with Europa League by Sam P I do understand the argument that Arsenal would be well advised to give up on the unlikely chance that we can still qualify from our Champions League group into the knockout phase, The Gunners have to win both of the remaining games including the one [.
When Arsenal signed Matthieu Debuchy from Newcastle, the Frenchman was hailed as the perfect replacement for Bacary Sagna. He had already displaced his countryman in the national side and was experienced in the Premiership enough to easily slot into the Gunners back line. He certainly started well, but then he succumbed to Arsenal's injury curse [.
Did You all see Bayern's bench or was I dreaming? Assessing Arsenal's reserves By Galen After seeing our starting XI and looking at Bayern's bench, I expected Arsenal to lose the game. I have finally come to the conclusion that we are good football side but not a great team. Barcelona had a transfer ban [.
AudioPost The Gunners were soundly beaten by Bayern last night, and the ex-Arsenal striker Paul Merson was gobsmacked at how easily Arsene Wenger's team fell apart, in fact he says that they "had no idea what they were doing" as the goals just kept coming at them. But more worrying, is he thinks that [.
It might seem like the worst possible time to be talking about the strength of the Arsenal back four, hot on the heels of such a heavy drubbing in the Champions League by the German champions. But to mitigate the stats that show our back four doing so well, I think we have to accept [...]
Miles apart.... who's to blame? by Koss the Boss Hi Gooners Im sure you are all pretty pissed off with what transpired the other night in Munich, although I thought i would try and take the positives out of this situation but couldn't, just ended up getting the reality check we needed. Now as we [...
Arsenal are getting ready to face our age-old rivals Tottenham Hotspurs on Sunday, but we have a current injury list of ten players and there is only one of those that has any hope of being back for the North London Derby. Wenger said this morning: "I'm very concerned. Because we are only in November [.
There are hardly any Arsenal transfer rumours flying around the football press at the minute, but do not fret Gooners because there will be many more than you can keep track of as the January transfer window approaches. There is a new one doing the rounds this week and it has got some substance to [.
The key questions and answers of an Arsenal fan by OA This season has been the year of contrasts. At one point there is a result that have us Arsenal fans, jumping with joy, and then there is a disappointing result. The league started off as a poor campaign but now we have found our [...]
I am not going to try to put too much positive spin on this for Arsenal fans, because we have got used to at least getting out of the group phase of the Champions League and losing the first two games against Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiacos was a massive disappointment. Some pride has been restored [...
Hindsight is a wonderful thing. I have 20-20 hindsight and never get a decision wrong, but the Arsenal boss does not have that luxury. If he did I am sure that Arsene Wenger would have prepared the Gunners a little differently for this Champions League game away to the mighty Bayern Munich. I think there [.
Bayern Munich thrashed Arsenal last night to get revenge for their defeat at the Emirates a fortnight ago, but basically the Gunners defence gifted them their five goals. Arsene Wenger was not at all happy with the performance and said after the game. "You have to give credit to Bayern first for their quality and [.
Stop worrying, Arsenal will still qualify by Sam P After last night's performance gave us our third defeat in the four Champions League games so far, I am still pretty certain that we will win our two remaining games and qualify for our name to go into the hat for the next round. In two [...]
Arsenal don't have the squad players to deal with the fitness problems we have each year by KM Hi guys. Alright, we got thumped pretty hard yesterday, but I feel like we were out there with eight and a half players rather than eleven and that against Bayern will cost you. We started with Debuchy [.
8 Reasons Why Arsenal Can Win Premier League This Year by MK When Arsenal started this season with an FA Community Shield victory, it seemed like a brilliant year was ahead – and despite some setbacks, this seems to have been a completely right feeling. Currently, the UK-licensed bookie TonyBet has valued the Gunners' odds [.
Will Champions League Exit prove to be a catalyst for Arsenal to win the Prem? by SS Hi Gooners, I am fully aware that since the last decade, barring two FA cup wins, qualifying for CL is our only achievement. We qualify for CL every year and we fail to improve upon our performances. We [...]
There was not much for Arsenal fans to cheer about last night, as the German champions Bayern Munich more than made up for losing to the Gunners in London two weeks ago. The 5-1 defeat has the football media and the fans full of criticism for the Arsenal players, especially the defenders, and wondering whether [.
The North-London derby is always a tasty affair but Sunday's game includes an added ingredient that should make it a little more interesting. Fantasy football game www.oulala.com have taken a look at the weekend's game between Arsenal and Tottenham and have revealed that the match will see 2015's best striker go up against the year's [.
AudioPost When Aaron Ramsey go injured in Arsenal's first game against Bayern Munich, Arsene Wenger made it clear that he blamed the Wales manager Chris Coleman for playing the Gunners midfelder in the final Group game against Andorra, and he also said the same about Real Madrid's Gareth Bale. This is Coleman's response, and [.
With Arsenal having only managed to keep hold of the ball for less than 25 percent of the game against Bayern Munich in the home tie, not many people are expecting the Gunners to go and dominate the game in Germany. But that does not necessarily mean that we will completely change our tactics. That [.
Arsenal fans will be very unhappy to learn that our young Spanish speedster Hector Bellerin is the latest player to join the Gunners injury list, which means that Debuchy is set to be starting in Munich this evening. This is what Wenger had to say about it last night. "The team news is that, from [..
Here we have another straight-from-the-horses-mouth AudioPost from the Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, as he gives an insight into tonight's game and a full description of why he thinks Matthieu Debuchy will be able to fill Bellerin's boots in Munich. This is from an interview on SkySports Enjoy! in conjunction with AudioBoom
Arsenal may be going to the Allianz Arena this evening to face the full force of German organization and discipline in the shape of Bayern Munich, but our own German superstar Mesut Ozil is sure that we can be just as disciplined and clinical to beat the Germans at their own game. Here is Ozil's [...
Can Arsenal do it this time and turn the mess around? by KM Hi guys. So off the back of a nice win against the swans the big question tonight is will we do it again? Can we actually beat Bayern away once more and give ourselves a bigger chance to go through? It's [...]
So the big night is upon us, and the future of Arsenal's Champions League participation is at stake tonight in Munich. I am sure it is going to be a close run thing, and Arsene Wenger thinks our hopes rest on the form of the Assist King Mesut Ozil, who has been in awesome form [...]
Despite helping Germany to win lift the World Cup trophy last summer, and to qualify for the tournament in the first place of course, the Arsenal play maker Mesut Ozil was getting the same sort of criticism from the football media and former players in his homeland as he was from the English press and [.
Arsene Wenger has had his Arsenal team selection options reduced even further this week and that means that the Frenchman has not had too many big decisions to make for the team to play Bayern Munich at the Allianz arena tonight. In a way this might help our Champions League hopes, because the pressure is [.
Well that was a bit of a nightmare Gooners, and certainly not what Arsenal were hoping would happen in Germany. For some reason we were nothing like as solid as in the game at the Emirates and that did not go well against a Bayern Munich side that was in red hot and scintillating form. [...]
Arsenal have been close before, of course, such as two years ago when the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Olivier Giroud and our new record signing Mesut Ozil saw the Gunners spend more time on top of the Premier League table than any of our rivals. And there is still a long way to go for [...]
The situation for Arsenal in the Champions League competition right now is still very precarious and even another positive result against one of the pre-tournament favourites to win the whole thing might not be enough to get the Gunners into the knockout phase. Winning at home against Bayern Munich has certainly given Arsenal a chance [.
Arsenal have the formidable task of a Champions League away clash with Bayern Munich to get through first, and of course we are all hoping that Arsene Wenger and the players can pull off another shock against the German champions. But even though this midweek game could rescue what was looking like a disastrous European [.
Arsenal fans will be keeping a very close eye on the injury situation at the club in the run up to the festive period, because that and the form of the individual Arsenal players and the team as a whole will probably determine whether January will see any transfer action from Arsene Wenger. Assuming that [.
One of the biggest concerns for Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players as they prepared for the must win game against Bayern Munich a couple of weeks ago was the red hot form of Robert Lewandowski. The Poland international had been scoring like a millionaire in a brothel for club and country and with the [.
WENGER NEEDS TO GET RID OF INCONSISTENCY! by NO I will make a very controversial statement; Arsenal are inconsistent because of inconsistent players in the first team squad. Can Wenger use the winter window to remove the inconsistency from his squad now that the core of the side has formed itself? This he needs to [.
Th Gunners are going off to Germany to get ready for the most important game so far this season, and although we are in confident mood, the Germans are also determined to beat Arsenal this time around. Their super-striker Robert Lewandowski has gone an unbelievable two whole gams without scoring a goal and he is [.
Stats released by Fantasy football game www.oulala.com have revealed a partnership at Arsenal that should have Bayern Munich hiding behind the sofa. The Bundesliga side welcome Arsenal to the Allianz Arena in the Champions League on Wednesday following Arsenal's 2-0 victory over the Germans at the Emirates a fortnight ago.
There were many many Arsenal transfer rumours linking Joel Campbell with a move away from the club in the summer, as the Costa Rican international was not happy with sitting on the bench under Wenger, but the Boss says that he knew Campbell would get his chance to prove himself. "I think he wanted to [.
Arsenal were the first team this season to stop the German juggernaut that is Bayern Munich from winning. The fact that we won our Champions League clash with them was fantastic for many reasons, because it kept our hopes of qualifying alive, gave the team morale a huge boost and it might also have sowed [.
I thought that the Arsenal and Germany international play maker Mesut Ozil had bagged himself another couple of assists this week, as our midfield maestro inspired the Gunners to another key victory away to Swansea City. Apparently not though, as his EPL assists have only gone up by one, according to the stats website Squawka.
I did not realise it at the time, but when the Arsenal and France striker Olivier Giroud used a nice bit of movement in the Swansea box to lose his marker and then rose to head the Gunners into the lead at the Liberty stadium on Saturday, it was goal number 2000 for Arsenal under [...]
You would think that winning every game of the season before finally losing to Arsenal in that Champions League game a couple of weeks ago would mean that our victory at the Emirates would be like water off a duck's back to the German champions Bayern Munich. Add to that the fact that they enjoyed [.
A lot will depend on what happens with the current Arsenal reserve keeper David Ospina when the Colombian international recovers from his shoulder injury. It will certainly be interesting to see what happens in our Champions League games after the next international break. The feeling in the football media is that Ospina will not be [.
The Arsenal machine keeps on rolling in the league! by KM Well, well! Having a fine Arsenal weekend are we? Sure we are, because I'd take any sort of a win against Swansea away, let alone a 3:0 one. I mean what a turnaround from the games we played against them last year! Mesut Ozil [...]
Even the Arsenal fans who can count themselves part of the 'Arsene Knows Best' group of Gooners were left scratching their heads when the summer transfer window came and went with a whimper once more, despite the revelations from the likes of the member of the Arsenal board Lord Harris that Arsene Wenger was sat [.
I know every Arsenal player and fan would love to see the Gunners gain another emphatic win against Bayern Munich on Wednesday, but would you be happy if the team only got a draw in the Allianz Arena? Wenger suggests he would be happy with that when he told the Guardian: "I would sign today [...]
There is a feeling that Arsene Wenger has a tough task ahead of him with the Arsenal team selection for the Champions League away game against Bayern Munich. Our hopes of getting out of the group are still pretty thin and with the heavy injury list and the north London derby to come, perhaps it [...]
Not only has it been hard for the Arsenal fans to have to deal with the transition from being arguably the best team ever in the Premier League, with the invincible team of Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira and all, to the financial restrictions leaving Arsene Wenger fighting for a top four spot every season, but [.
When Bayern Munich came to the Emirates a few weeks ago, they looked like Invincibles, having won every single game in every single competition up until that point, but we still beat the German Champions and now have to go to Munich to repeat the feat on Wednesday. Bayern's cloak of invincibilty has now slipped [.
It is true that Arsenal got extremely lucky when our injury problems last season forced Arsene Wenger to bring Francis Coquelin back to the squad last Christmas, and it is no coincidence that the Gunners improved drastically once he was introduced as our holding midfielder. "He continues to improve defensively in his positional play and [.
AUDIOPOST A brilliant Arsenal win over Swansea today and our fifth in a row in the League. WE managed ten in a row towards the end of last season but we've started this one much earlier. We've gained an extra two points ahead of Man United, and Man City only kept pace with us [...]
THe stats might show that some of his Arsenal team mates perhaps performed a little better or influenced the game more, with Mesut Ozil's all round game and assists, Giroud's centre forward work and headed goal, Koscielny's defensive steel and goal and Alexis' usual Duracell bunny act all helping the Gunners to a vital win.
Luck, Resilience, Ozil and Campbell. by MH Hi Gooners! How you all are feeling after our fifth consecutive win in the league ? Well I am feeling pretty high ! I still can't believe we got the 3 points considering our poor first half display. So let's talk about some points.... 1. Clearly we were [...
Arsenal have won their last five League games in style, but the Swansea manager Garry Monk is under the impression that his team deserved to get something from yesterday's game. Admittedly Gomis did have one excellent chance to put them in the lead, but he was quickly dealt with by Cech and Bellerin combined.
The Arsenal First Team played five games in October, winning all five, scoring 12 goals and conceding just the one against Everton. Beating Man United and Bayern Munich, both 3-0, must be the highlights of our run, but yesterday's dour victory in Swansea was just as important to keep our momentum going ahead of our [.
