Now we we all know that Arsenal are not going to pull off a miracle and beat Chelsea to the Premier League title this season, we need to look at how Arsene Wenger is going to manage the squad for the rest of the season. The pressure may be off the Gunners in the hunt [...]
The Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has made it clear that he will be leaving Stamford Bridge this summer, and, according to a report in todays Mirror, he has decided that he DEFINITELY going to either Arsenal or Paris St Germain. They say that Cech would prefer to stay in London where he has lived for [.
After improving significantly year on year since coming to play for Arsenal after leading his former club Montpellier to their first ever French title, you would think that Olivier Giroud was a happy man. But apparently not because he has been quoted in the Daily Mail admitting that the media focus on what he wears, [.
You might think that the Arsenal and England international star Danny Welbeck might feel a little put out about having to play second fiddle to Olivier Giroud, in the Premier League games at least, since the Frenchman returned from his lengthy injury lay off, but he doesn´t seem to be. Welbeck did not say as [.
The Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud knows all about being criticized in the press (or on forums like JustArsenal!) when he is not scoring goals. It took the Frenchman a couple of years to really get to grip with the Premiership game, and his failure to score in big games, not to mention his hotel-room antics [.
There is a long running feud between Arsenal and Chelsea, and not just because we are London neighbours. Tottenham are the Gunners traditional figure of fun, but the Blues are more of a hate figure since Roman Abramovich took over and brought in that Portugese Bus Conductor to spend his money. Arsene Wenger is desperate [.
Ivan statement not too good for Arsenal's morale by KM Ivan Gazidis hit the press again, to say some things about where Arsenal are heading as a football club. "When we talk about the destination, it's not winning a Champions League, it's making fans proud,". This statement looks like there's nothing wrong with it.
There are plenty of Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds, as per usual, and if all of them were true then Arsene Wenger and his scouting team at Arsenal would not time to scratch their arses. One that keeps coming up, however, and has done for over a year now is the link with the [...]
There are a couple of reports doing the rounds of the football media today, both in a similar vein, that suggest to me that it will be a lot harder for Arsenal to win the Premier League title next season. It is not that the Gunners are not improving because I really believe that we [...]
Recent reports have claimed that Real Madrid are trying to force club legend Iker Casillas to leave this summer, with Arsenal and Liverpool keen on his arrival. A Spanish journalist has now claimed that the 33 year-old WANTS to move to Arsenal, but even if the goalkeeper did want to come to the Emirates, do [.
Theo Walcott is finding it very hard to get his place back in the Arsenal First XI after returning from a year out injured, and the England winger believes that this is the best squad that Arsene Wenger has assembled since the Invincibles, and the competition for places is very fierce right now. Theo has [.
Arsenal are the current holders of the FA Cup after beating Wigan last year, and are hot favourites to retain the trophy when they face Aston Villa next month at Wembley. If they do emerge victorious then we will have the record amount of successes in the competition with and to commemorate that fact, the [.
It´s not all happy days for Arsenal by DN While it has now been all but confirmed (after the draw with Chelsea) that the Gunners will go another year without being crowned as the Champions of England, there seems to be an awful lot of positivity going around the Arsenal fans at the minute. Arsene [.
As long as Arsenal go north and conquer on Monday night then last night´s victory for Hull City over our top four rivals Liverpool will be a great result for everyone connected with the Gunners. It leaves us nine points ahead of Brendan Rodgers´ side with a much better goal difference and a game in [.
Arsenal do not need to sign 10 world class players like the pundits say by Konstantin Mitov Hello everyone! Take that! Thierry Henry came out bombing Arsenal about how we need a new spine. Excuse me? Thierry has been pretty critical of Arsenal in the media. Not what you'd expect from one of the all [.
Arsenal are on a ten-game unbeaten run right now, with nine wins included, but are still set to finish runners-up to Jose Mourinho's Chelsea, who have only lost two league games in the whole campaign. We all know that Thierry Henry has given the opinion that we are not quite ready to win the League [.
All Arsenal fans (and Arsene Wenger as well!) were surprised when the Gunners signed Danny Welbeck in the dying minutes of last summers transfer window, but now that he is here, do we think that the England international has the talent to become our first choice striker in the future? Welbeck certainly won't be happy [.
A new keeper was one of the four players declared by Thierry Henry to be vital for Arsene Wenger to add to the Arsenal squad this summer, to give the Gunners a real chance of winning the Premier League title. Whether you agree with our former striker and record goal scorer or not, the keeper [...]
Arsenal fans have been well aware of how well the young French midfielder Francis Coquelin has been playing, since Arsene Wenger recalled him early from a loan spell at Charlton towards the end of last year, because he was faced with an injury crisis. We noticed straight away because it was so unexpected and can [.
We have all accepted that the Premier League title will not be coming to Arsenal this season, including Arsene Wenger, the fans and the players. But this is no time to be feeling down about things, although it is clear that a slow start has really cost us. But we can look forward to next [...]
Arsenal still have a lot of work to do! by DN Although it would be quite a blow for Arsenal to finish fourth now after the position we have got ourselves into, it would still mean that the Gunners were once again in the Champions League next season. It would mean two play-off games that [...]
Assuming that you agree with Thierry Henry on what Arsenal need to do to improve on this season and bring that longed for Premier League title back to north London, you will be wanting Arsene Wenger to use the summer transfer window to make a few key signings. Henry thinks the Gunners need to sign [.
What has changed about Arsene and Arsenal by KickAssFan Arsenal won the Premier League last in 2004, that's about eleven years ago; pretty much a long time. Ever since, we only came close in the 2004/2005 season when we finished second, behind Chelsea. I do know we've been through a lot as a club since [.
According to a growing number of Arsenal transfer rumours, the summer transfer window looks likely to see a determined effort to sign our England international midfielder Jack Wilshere from at least one Premier League rival Man City. There have been some reports that Jose Mourinho would like him at Chelsea as well, even though Arsene [.
It is Tuesday so it is time for the weekly Arsenal bashing guff that is produced by the hack Adrian Durham and once again his target is Mesut Ozil, and the manager, team and club in general of course, with a side dish of dismissal and disrespect to us Gooners that are stupid enough to [...]
Okay Arsenal fans, we are still waiting for that victory for Arsenal over a Jose Mourinho side and the 0-0 draw yesterday finally put an end to our fading hopes of an unlikely Premier League trophy win this season. But Arsene Wenger and the players are not and are right not to be too downcast, [...]
Chelsea started yesterday's game at the Emirates without a recognised striker, but that hardly mattered as it seems obvious that they came to Arsenal to get a draw and they did that job efficiently enough in the end. Jose Mourinho is adept a setting up his defence to stop their opponents from scoring, and although [.
Thierry Henry is an Arsenal fans as well as being employed as a TV pundit by Sky Sports and the former Gunner makes no secret of the fact. So it was easy to see, and also to understand, his frustration that Arsenal and his former boss Arsene Wenger were once again left disappointed in their [...]
ANALYSING THE ANALYSES OF OUR CHELSEA GAME by Uche It has always been said that when posterity records a historical event, the conclusions drawn from that event depend on who wrote what. It never ceases to amaze me how the media and some of our own fans end up with a completely subjective and negative [.
Arsenal fans found out all we needed to know about the France international star Geoffrey Kondogbia this season, as the central midfielder was easily the Man of the Match when his French Ligue 1 club Monaco came to the Emirates for the Champions League first-leg game of the knockout stages. Although Arsenal were poor and [.
Arsenal still have the small matter of securing a top four finish and preferably avoiding the two legged play offs for the Champions League group stage at the start of next season. But inevitably the Arsenal fans, players and manager will be looking forward to the end of this season and our grand finale of [.
Chelsea have been League leaders right from the start of the season, and they have maintained their lead with some dour defending and fast counter-attacks. Meanwhile Arsenal have improved by leaps and bounds since Xmas to worry the Chelsea fans in the run-in. But now, after yesterdays 0-0 draw at the Emirates, Wenger reluctantly agreed [.
There were strong performances throughout the Arsenal team as we played host to a very strong and defensively organised Chelsea side yesterday, with players like Coquelin, Ramsey and Cazorla as well as all four defenders having a shout for the Man of the Match award but I am giving it to Mesut Ozil who linked [.
That's as far as we'll go with Arsene by KM After the 13th successive failure to beat Chelsea, Arsene showed that despite a good run, Arsenal are still not at the level required to be title contenders. Why's that? Well this year is just another repeat of the Arsenal season. We finish strong, end up [.
Okay as Arsenal fans we probably now have to admit that Chelsea deserve to be Champions this season after becoming the ONLY team to stop us scoring at home, and maintaining their ten point lead at the top of the Premiership, but do they really deserve to have six players in the PFA Team of [...]
Although he may not have come out and said it, you just know that Arsene Wenger would absolutely love to have seen his Arsenal side record a first win against his managerial rival Jose Mourinho, even though the Frenchman admitted after the game that all three points would still not have been enough for the [.
Although JOse Mourinho started with no recognised striker in his Chelsea team, they were not really as defensive as we expected. THey still had plenty of men behind the ball and worked hard to close the Gunners down and give us no space, but they also tried to get forward when they could and get [...
This is it for Arsenal fans. Arsene Wenger has a great chgance of recording a win against his new arch enemy Jose Mourinho and the Gunners simply have to take all three points to keep the very slim hopes of this season's Premier League title alive. The Chelsea boss has signalled his tactics loud and [.
It has almost always been the case for Arsenal under Arsene Wenger, particularly in the last few years, that we have dominated possession of the ball against almost all opposing teams. We have the players with the passing ability to do that, such as Arteta, Rosicky, Cazorla and many more but it was also the [.
As well as the verbal sparring and not so subtle digs between the Arsenal boss and his counterpart at Chelsea, there is a very important game of football to consider. And although both teams have players like Ozil, Giroud, Alexis, Ramsey, Oscar. Fabregas and Hazard, with the quality to turn a game with a moment [.
It's all about walking away from this match with 3 more points by Seetsuma Alright folks, it's this time of the week! The time when Arsenal welcome, or don't welcome, the opposition to our fortress, The Emirates. If you don't know who we've got this week, then you must be living under a rock somewhere.
Our captain and leader Mikel Arteta has not played for Arsenal since last November, but the 33 year-old has now revealed on Arsenal.com that he expects to rejoin the first team squad in the next "week or two". Arteta's contract runs out in June and he has already spoken of his desire to stay if [...]
We can only sit back and admire the way that Arsene Wenger has turned things around this season to put Arsenal back into the title race after a horrendous start to the season. The Gunners have emphasised their improvement by beating both Manchester clubs on their home ground, but there is still one monkey on [.
If confidence, form and belief stood for much in football, then Arsenal would be celebrating a famous win over our London rivals Chelsea at about ten to six tomorrow evening. After eight Premier League wins in a row and just three defeats and one draw in the last 25 games, it is hardly surprising that [.
It looks like Arsene Wenger has already taken an early blow to his Arsenal transfer plans for the end of the season, if you believe what you read in the latest Arsenal transfer rumours that is. And what is even worse than the reports that the Frenchman is set to miss out on two top [...]
As well as a fierce battle for bragging rights, the top of the table clash between Arsenal and Chelsea tomorrow also sees the latest tactical battle between Arsene Wenger and his tormentor-in-chief Jose Mourinho. And as usual, we expect it to be a clash of styles, with our Prof preferring his exciting and fluent brand [.
Arsenal are aiming to win their tenth game in row tomorrow against Chelsea, and they can hardly be in a more confident mood having scored 20 goals in the previous 9 games, and only conceding 5. I personally believe that having David Ospina in goal has been the greatest aid to our improvement, but Arsene [.
There has been a lot of talk about the situation with Arsenal and our England international star Jack Wilshere this season. Actually it has been going on for longer than a year and the pressure has been growing on the player that burst so spectacularly onto the scene as a teenager a few years ago. [.
Injuries...yes please! By ThirdManJW As we reach the end of the season, and take a moment of reflection...what has been the main positive?. Has it been the instant impact of Sanchez, the rebirth of Ozil, big game mentality? I for one feel the main positive has actually been the injuries. Obviously they've had a negative [.
Do Arsenal need so many players to win the title next season? by OI I read Jamie Carragher in the Daily Mail writing once again about Arsenal. This time he believes Arsenal are living under a certain illusion of their team being great again. No, Arsenal aren't great yet, he avers. If they want to [..
There has been much talk about Arsene Wenger's woeful record against Jose Mourinho's Chelsea sides, despite both managers saying that games are won on the day, not by the history books. As Mourinho himself said: ‘I am not proud of my record against Arsenal. For me achievement is to win on Sunday, it is not [.
Mourinho still has a point about Arsenal by DN No matter how much Arsenal fans want to comfort ourselves by saying that Arsene Wenger did a brilliant job by keeping the Gunners in the Champions League when his transfer budget was basically a piece of string and a winning smile, the fact is that football [.
He was one of the many central midfielders linked with a potential move to join Arsenal last summer, when we were all crying out for a player to finally come in and replace the great Patrick Vieira. Others like Lars Bender, Morgan Schneiderlin and Sami Khedira were linked but were not really available, while Carvalho [.
Just like the poster in agent Fox Mulder´s office, Arsenal fans `want to believe´ or at least we did, that our former captain Cesc Fabregas still had Arsenal at his heart. He said as much even after leaving us to join his boyhood club Barcelona, so we were all shocked to see him join our [...]
Just like the fight between Arsenal and Chelsea for the coveted Premier League title, the race to be crowned the PFA player of the year is still on. In fact it is likely to be much closer than the title race unless Jose Mourinho and Chelsea suffer a major collapse. So any of the six [...]
With Arsenal now sitting in second place in the Premier League table and heading for a second successive Wembley FA cup final and on an amazing run of form, with 21 wins and one draw from our last 25 games, the calls from some Arsenal fans and members of the football media have pretty much [...]
Wenger's history against Mourinho by RC On Sunday Chelsea travel to the Emirates to face Arsenal. It will be the thirteenth occasion that managers Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho have met. The previous twelve have seen either a Mourinho win or a draw with Wenger still yet to experience victory over the Portugese manager.
Our great leader Arsene Wenger has no interest in citing history lessons ahead of Arsenal's top-of-the-table clash against Chelsea on Sunday, and the Frenchman thinks that current form should be the deciding factor in the game. Wenger may have lost his twelve previous meetings with Jose Mourinho, but, as he points out, they have not [.
In recent weeks Francis Coquelin nullified the threat of Philippe Coutinho and Raheem Sterling. He then stopped Angel Di Maria and Ander Herrera. The Arsenal midfielder now faces his biggest challenge of the season so far as Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas prepare to visit the Emirate's on Sunday. The 23-year-old's reputation has continued to [.
CLASH OF THE TITANS by HA Dear Gooners! Good day. Hopefully we all are ready for the Super Sunday. First vs Second! Arsenal finally are in a good shape and have a complete team. Only time can tell whether Arsenal will have one last shot at the title or not. Let's consider the scenario first. [...]
If anyone has the right to say what they think about Arsenal and the goalkeeper situation, it is surely the former England international David Seaman, who played nearly 500 games for the Gunners and won three league titles, four FA cups, a League cup and the UEFA cup winners cup. So after Arsene Wenger continued [.
If you have not already heard, the European governing body has this week confirmed some rule changes that will affect Arsenal next season, unless we can somehow overhaul Chelsea and win the Premier League or unless we suffer a shocking collapse and fail to qualify for the Champions League at all. What looks most likely, [.
I know that Arsene Wenger has been keen to play down the importance of Arsenal's recent poor record against Chelsea, and especially his own record against their sneering manager Jose Mourinho. But I do think it is closer to the truth the way the football media is presenting the Sunday clash between the top two [.
I doubt that I was the only Arsenal fan to be surprised to see the name of our France international right back in the starting line-up instead of the young Spaniard Hector Bellerin at the weekend. But Arsene Wenger revealed after the game that Bellerin had been playing with some ankle problem and the boss [.
There has already been quite a lot said about the man chosen to referee the upcoming FA cup final between Arsenal and Aston Villa and I don't want to get on the back of Jon Moss too much, because he is surely doing the best he can. But the general consensus seems to be that [...]
The Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin is already well on his way to becoming a firm favourite with the Arsenal fans, not just for the brilliant and battling performances since he returned early from his loan spell to be at the heart of the Gunners turnaround in form and rise up the Premier League table.
It has been said for many years that Arsenal need to buy a "beast" of a DM, and even though Francis Coquelin has since emerged from the wilderness, the Gunners still need an effective backup now that Arteta and Flamini are getting on in years. Most Arsenal rumours have been pointing to Arsene Wenger wanting [.
THE CURRENT ARSENAL FORMATION SHOULD BE THE BASIS FOR NEXT SEASON'S TITLE CHALLENGE by Nairobigooner Its definitely a good time to be a Gooner, considering the fact that at this time last season we had lost at Anfield, Old Trafford, the Etihad, and most notably Goodison Park. Everton were being tipped to finish in the [.
Arsenal made quite a few additions to the First Team Squad last summer, and other than the arrival of Alexis Sanchez, perhaps our best buy was the Colombian keeper David Ospina. Since he has displaced Wojciech Szczesny between the sticks, Ospina has been instrumental to us going on a long winning run which has seen [.
We have the top-of-the-table clash this Saturday as Arsenal take on the league leaders Chelsea at the Emirates, and Arsene Wenger will be desperate to get his first-ever win over Jose Mourinho and prove to the world that the Gunners can be real challengers for the title next season. For those of you who like [.
I may be reading a bit too much into the comments this week from the former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour and our current star Alexis Sanchez, but if I was Mesut Ozil I would be wondering just what I had done to deserve what seems to me like a lack of appreciation of the German [...]
Every single summer the old adage that "Arsenal are three signings from winning the title" crops up, and this season it has come up a little earlier thanks to the Arsenal legend Ray Parlour. Speaking n the Express, the famous Gunner was asked what positions Wenger needs to buy in and he said: "Straight down [.
It is being reported that Arsenal are set to beat a whole host of rival clubs to complete the summer transfer of the very highly rated Mexico international Hector Moreno from his La Liga club Espanyol. Maybe it would be more accurate to say that Arsene Wenger is ready to give the central defender his [.
I am sure that the former Arsenal midfielder and club captain Cesc Fabregas will be hoping for a decent reception when he comes back to the Emirates to play for the first time since he left the club for Barcelona and La Liga back in August of 2011. But I don't think that he will [...]
You might say that Michael Owen has a problem with the Arsenal and Germany international star Mesut Ozil, but that would be a massive understatement. It would also ignore the fact that it is everything about Arsenal that the pint sized pundit has a problem with. I think that Ozil is just the focus of [.
Arsenal fans may have been feeling a bit nervous recently about Arsene Wenger´s ability to hold on to our Spain international star Santi Cazorla, with many Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that the little magician could be tempted to head back to Spain and La Liga with strong interest from big clubs like Barcelona and Atletico [.
Setting up improved targets for next year maybe? by Konstantin Mitov If you are Arsene Wenger in the beginning of a new season talking to Ivan Gazidis for the targets of Arsenal, you'd pretty much know how the conversation goes: IG Hey Arsene, Top 4 this year? AW Same as always. The truth [...]
Arsene Wenger may have failed to bring in a centre-back and defensive midfielder last summer, but it was surely a stroke of pure genius to bring Alexis Sanchez to Arsenal instead. The Chilean has been a breath of fresh air and his untiring energy galvanized the Gunners in the first half of the season when [.
It's midweek and we have to wait until Saturday before the big game against Chelsea, but the papers are keeping busy with Arsenal transfer rumours to keep themselves amused so I will pass on today's offerings for discussion. This Dybala rumour keeps coming back, and everybody is still linking him with Arsenal despite Wenger's [.
It now looks certain that the Arsenal vice-captain Per Mertesacker will have to sit out the next game for the Gunners. But even though our next match is the crucial top of the table Premier League clash with Chelsea, I still do not think that we need to worry too much about the loss of [...]
I can see where the Arsenal centre back Per Mertesacker is coming from and of course we are all happy, relieved and proud to see the Gunners make it to Wembley for a second successive FA cup final. However, I am not so sure that even lifting the famous trophy again will really ease the [...]
I really hope that Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players do not spend this week preparing for the top of the table clash with Chelsea assuming that Chelsea will come to the Emirates stadium ripe for the plucking because of the striker crisis currently affecting the Blues, because that way lies disaster.
We could have a very United North London on Cup Final Day, with the very unusual sight of Tottenham fans cheering on Arsenal against Aston Villa, much to their chagrin! The fact of the matter is that Tottenham are currently in 7th place in the League, and if they stay there, which is highly probable, [.
The Germany defender Per Mertesacker won his first trophy with Arsenal last year, and then went on to lift the World Cup with his national team. Now he is very keen to keep his run going by claiming the FA Cup again when Arsenal take on Aston Villa in the final. Mertesacker had to withdrawn [...]
I am sure there will be many pundits around this week with advice for Arsene Wenger on how Arsenal can beat Chelsea, and the first one to weigh in is the ex-Gunners star Charlie Nicholas, who believes that we need to flood the midfield to stifle Chelsea's counter-attacking force. "Arsenal should play with two holding [.
Arsene Wenger was much critized for not playing Lukas Podolski in the Arsenal First team, despite his excellent goalscoring record for the club, but now the German is struggling to get a game on loan at Inter Milan it would seem like Le Prof was right. Podolski accused Wenger of disrespect when he was sent [.
Has there ever been a better time for Arsene Wenger to get his first ever win over Jose Mourinho? Chelsea must be nailed on to win this years Premier League trophy, but if Arsenal want to seriously believe that they can win it next season, then they simply have to prove they can beat the [...]
I am not surprised to hear that Jose Mourinho has his beady eyes on another one of the Arsenal players. He has done well enough with Ashley Cole in his first spell at Chelsea and now our former captain Cesc Fabregas looks like inspiring them to another Premier League trophy. And Mourinho knows all about [.
Two FA cup finals in a row, not too bad... by KM Well, well. Arsenal v Aston Villa in the last game of the season. We're in the final again. For a team that went a decade without a trophy, two FA cups in as many seasons is most definitely good. It's another matter whether [...]
With Jose Mourinho bringing his title chasing team to the Emirates for Arsenal´s next game, it does not take a genius to work out what tactics the negative one is going to employ. Arsene Wenger will know that there will be a big blue Chelsea bus parked in front of the Gunners at the weekend, [...]
While Arsenal were making our way to another Wembley FA cup final yesterday, Chelsea were being pummelled by Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, despite Jose Mourinho claiming that the game went perfectly according to plan. What did go for the smug one, however, was all the luck and the 1-0 result.
It looks like the final obstacle to Arsene Wenger completing the deal that has been the subject of more Arsenal transfer rumours in the last year, has been removed. And not only are the Gunners now poised to sign the France international star Morgan Schneiderlin, but we are going to get him for the cut-price [.
Arsenal made hard work of beating the Championship side Reading on Saturday, but Arsene Wenger was proud that his team kept their heads and went on to secure a place in the FA Cup Final for the second time in two years. Arsenal are now aiming for their TENTH win in a row when they [...]
It may not have been the free flowing Arsenal that has become the scourge of smaller clubs, but Saturday's FA cup semi/final was further proof of just how far the Gunners have come in the last few years. More specifically in fact, the last year has seen Arsenal and Arsene Wenger find a new strength [.
If you have not seen the latest Arsenal transfer rumours, then you may not have heard that Arsenal are apparently one of a number of clubs that have been put on alert to the availability of the Real Madrid and Spain international star Isco this summer. The story goes that his current club are looking [.
Arsene Wenger has made it an Arsenal tradition that his reserve goalkeeper who plays in the FA Cup games, even if it is a semi-final or Final, and this years demotion meant that Wojciech Szczesny was between the sticks against Reading yesterday. It has already been proven that David Ospina has a MUCH better record [.
Arsenal tactics under question again!! by DN It will not be a big topic of conversation among Arsenal fans this week, as we are too busy celebrating the Gunners reaching a record breaking 18th FA cup final. But the nerve wracking nature of another semi-final against lower league opposition should raise a few questions.
There is no way that Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players should be taking anything for granted when the Gunners head to Wembley on May 30th for the FA cup final. Last season's near things against Wigan in the semis and Hull City in the final, as well as the weekend's lucky escape against Reading [.
There is a debate going on as to whether Arsenal were lucky to beat Reading and reach the FA Cup Final or not, and you could maybe have said the same thing after last year's semifinal win over Wigan, but the fact is we DID win the game and we ARE going to be in [...]
The Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta has only made 11 appearances for the club so far this season, and with only a few games remaining until the end of the season, he is still a week or two away from being ready to play. The Spanish midfielder turned 33 years of age last month, and with [...]
According to many Arsenal transfer rumours over the last couple of years, Arsene Wenger has been very keen on completing the signing of the Germany international forward Marco Reus from Borussia Dortmund. But this year the Frenchman´s hopes of finally getting his long term targets seemed to have suffered a terminal blow.
It might be worth all the Arsenal fans out there becoming honorary supporters of Liverpool or Southampton until the end of the season, as those are the only two clubs that have a realistic chance of beating Manchester United to one of the top four places in the Premier League. And it looks as though [.
As usual, Arsenal were expected to dominate a game against (easy?) opposition, but yet again the fans were made to suffer for over 100 minutes before Alexis Sanchez scored a very lucky winner against the hapless Reading keeper. Arsene Wenger felt that the Gunners were dominant, but he expected the Royals to make us fight [.
Arsenal had to slog it out with Reading for 120 minutes yesterday evening, but we somehow managed to reach our second FA Cup Final in a row. Our Spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla, who played the whole two hours, says the Gunners now want to go and get the trophy again for the Arsenal fans. Cazorla [..
Arsenal beat Reading yesterday to get through to the FA Cup Final, and thankfully the Football Association and Arsenal Football club have very kindly issued some Official Highlights, on FATV, of yesterdays game, for JustArsenal to share with our readers and all Gooners from around the world, so I am posting this as quickly as [.
I know that the TV pundits gave it to Alexis Sanchez, and not many Arsenal fans will disagree after the Chilean international scored both goals for the Gunners in our narrow and hard fought win over Reading. But Alexis was not at his best and struggled for much of the game, while I thought Mesut [...
Well the important thing is that Arsenal won the semi-final against Reading to book our place at the FA cup final at Wembley next month. But it is not the sort of game that was good for those Gooners of a nervous disposition, partly due to the indomitable desire and determination of our opponents and [.
The Arsenal boss has stayed true to his word about treating the FA cup semi-final today with all due care and attention, despite the fact that our Wembley opponents Reading are only a Championship club and a mid-table one at that. So Arsene Wenger has resisted the temptation to make quite a few changes to [.
Francis Coquelin may now be the lynchpin of Arsenal brilliant recent run, but it seems strange to think that just a few months ago he was playing in the Championship with Carlton, therefore he is the only Gunner with first-hand experience against Reading this season. Le Coq says that the Royals are not going to [.
We are all expecting Arsene Wenger to make quite a few changes to the Arsenal starting line-up for the FA cup semi-final against Reading at Wembley this evening. Even though it is a crucial game for the Gunners and our hopes of lifting the famous old trophy for the second year in a row, the [...]
Most Arsenal fans are seemingly convinced that the League title will go to Chelsea this year, but while it is still mathematically possible one should never give up hope. Aaron Ramsey certainly hasn't! "The double? Yes, that is still a possibility," Ramsey said in the Mirror. "We are just trying to win our remaining games.
The Arsenal and Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey has been reminiscing about how exciting it was to score the winning goal in an FA Cup Final, which he had the pleasure of doing as the Gunners came back from 2-0 down to win the trophy against Hull last year. I have a feeling that he still [...]
Arsenal fans will not be content for Arsene Wenger and the players to merely get to the final of the FA cup at Wembley in May, because if we get there we will all be expecting to win it again, no matter whether it would be against Liverpool or Aston Villa. First of all though, [...]
For today's FA Cup game against Reading, here's the Arsenal team I would play by Seetsuma Szczesny Debuchy Gabriel Koscielny Monreal Coquelin Ramsey Rosicky Welbeck Walcott Sanchez On the bench: Ospina, Gibbs, Bellerin, Diaby, Ozil, Cazorla, Giroud Szczesny is starting, that's already been announced so there is no debating that.
Arsenal are well aware that your position in the League definitely does not affect your performance in an FA Cup game, especially one as important as a semi-final. Arsene Wenger can not forget how hard it was to get past Wigan last year, and Wenger is expecting another tough task against lowly Reading.
Reading may not be the hardest opponents in the world for Arsenal to face today, especially on form and history, but the Gunners also know that last year Wigan took us right down to the wire before going through to the Final on penalties. This year will be different, according to Mikel Arteta, and he [.
It is now two years since Nacho Monreal arrived at Arsenal from Malaga, and after a long fight with Kieran Gibbs for the starting spot at left-back he has gradually worked his way into being first choice for Arsene Wenger. In fact he has started every single game of our current eight-game winning streak.
Arsenal have been linked with a summer move for Liverpool's contract rebel Raheem Sterling for some time, and Wenger did not stop the rumours when he did NOT deny there would be a bid for the England international in the run up to the Liverpool match. Wenger said: "I do not want to speak about [...]
Arsenal may be on a fantastic League run of 16 wins in 18 games, but according to Per Mertesacker this sequence will mean nothing when the Gunners line up at Wembley tomorrow, and the pressure of playing at Wembley will just as tough against Reading as it was against Wigan last season. "It's good to [.
Arsenal's biggest ever signing Mesut Ozil has been called lazy and accused of going missing during games due to his laid back attitude on the pitch, but the German international has no interest in listening to anyone outside the club. "If you look at my statistics, I am one of the players who covers the [.
Arsene Wenger has a tradition of playing his reserve keeper in the FA Cup and even stuck with Lukasz Fabianski in the Final last year after he heroically saved Arsenal in the semifinal penalty shootout. Now Szczesny may get his chance to play in a Cup Final if he does a good job in tomorrow's [...]
The Arsenal and England winger Theo Walcott has until June to agree a new contract at the Emirates, and ahead of tomorrows FA Cup semifinal against Reading, Arsene Wenger has admitted that he is hoping that Walcott will stay. "I believe he will have a great future and I want him to stay here," Le [..
The lifelong Arsenal fan Carl Jenkinson wants to do nothing more than play for the Gunners, but the problem is that Arsene Wenger doesn't quite trust him enough for the 23 year-old to have a regular starting spot in the team yet. After Bacary Sagna left for Manchester City last summer, Jenkinson was hopeful of [.
As the season starts to wind down, the transfer mill is picking up speed at a rapid rate, so I have rounded up a few rumours to tell you about. Arsenal are said to be 'ready' to launch a £22 Million move to bring Roma winger Juan Iturbe to the Emirates this summer. Liverpool are [...]
Re-living Arsenal's FA cup semi final against Wigan at Wembley last year. by MAA It was a day full of mixed emotions as we were playing Wigan, a team that had eliminated Man City in the quarter final at the Etihad stadium. Its still fresh in my mind how our rival fans were mocking us [...]
On current form it is clear that Arsenal have the quality and strength to mount a serious push for the Premier League title next season, always assuming that Chelsea do not suffer a major collapse and let us in this year of course. As long as the Gunners do not have the usual crippling injury [...]
Arsenal are going to Wembley on Saturday for their second FA Cup semifinal in as many years, and Per Mertesacker has been comparing the attitude of the squad ahead of both games. Last years game against Wigan turned out to be a lot more difficult than expected and the Gunners only went through on penalties [.
There are not many Arsenal fans that will be happy that Chelsea v Man United are kicking off at the same time as Arsenal's FA Cup semi-final against Reading, and I am one of them. The result of Chelsea v Man United is, arguably, just as important to Arsenal's season as the Cup semi. If [...]
I don't normally look at the history books ahead of Arsenal's fixtures because we all know that records are made to be broken. Form is also easily turned on its head, especially in Cup games, but when it comes to our record in matches against Reading FC I was astounded at the way Arsenal have [...]
KLOPP HAS MADE ME APPRECIATE WENGER EVEN MORE by Uche So the bombshell has dropped that Jurgen Klopp, the much beloved and innovative Manager of Borussia Dortmund, is leaving at the end of the season. No he did not get fired. According to him, the time has come for the club to try someone different. [.
To be honest, the Arsenal players and Arsene Wenger have had enough prior warnings in recent years about just how dangerous it can be to go into a game, especially a very important one, assuming that you are the better team and so the job of winning is already half done. Going back to that [...]
The subject has not come up quite as much among Arsenal fans recently, as the team have really turned around a poor start of the season to show that Arsene Wenger has still got what it takes to compete at the highest level. Our amazing run of results along with some good work in the [...]
It is being reported that Arsenal are the club most likely to complete the free transfer of the England international James Milner in the summer. I´m not sure how to describe the 29-year old really because he is so versatile that he has been known to play about five different positions in a single match, [.
While his time in the Arsenal first team has been severely restricted of late, it would seem that the England international Theo Walcott is still very much a part of Arsene Wenger´s plans for the future. So even though the manager´s claim that the player is still not fully recovered from his long spell on [.
With the way things have been going for Arsenal since the turn of the year, it might finally be acceptable for the Arsenal fans to hear Arsene Wenger saying that the summer transfer business might be a bit quiet for the Gunners as there are no players available to sign for the right price that [...]
Thoughts on Arsenal – Current and Future by NepaliGunner It is a good time to be a Gunner. We are on an 8 match winning streak, 2nd in the table, in the FA cup semi-final and the form team in the EPL. It is certainly in stark contrast to our fortunes earlier in the season. [...]
There have been numerous reports that our new right-back Hector Bellerin has broken the Arsenal sprint record previously held by Theo Walcott. He was reportedly clocked at running 40 metres in just 4.2 seconds beating Walcott's record by just 1/100th of a second, but these times are being challenged by Richard Kilty, who is the [.
There is an interesting Arsenal rumour coming out of France that our talented right-back Matthieu Debuchy is set to be a summer target for Paris St Germain. The French international only arrived at the Emirates last summer from Newcastle for £12 million but has had an unlucky season with injuries and has only actually played [.
There is a very interesting Arsenal rumour doing the rounds today that an extremely promising French international wants to move to the Emirates. The agent (and father) of the versatile Lyon striker Nabil Fekir has revealed that he has turned down a bid from Manchester City and will only let the 21 year-old move to [.
The Arsenal legend Martin Keown thinks that the Gunners have finally assembled a squad capable of winning the Premier League, and will mount a real challenge to Chelsea next season. "Chelsea will win it now but if you ask them next season they won't fear anyone but they will be aware of Arsenal," Keown [.
Something definitely changed in January that got Arsenal started on their magnificent winning run. Many Gooners put it down to the fact that we started getting all our injured players back, but what was the real reason? Having a fully fit squad brings its own problems, like getting the ex-injured players back on the pitch [.
There have been many Arsenal transfer rumours regarding who could replace Theo Walcott if he failed to sign a new contract and got sold this summer, but should we be looking at outsiders like Raheen Sterling, or should we be looking closer to home? Serge Gnabry arrived at Arsenal from Stuttgart in 2012 with a [.
The great Arsenal goalkeeping legend David Seaman has been discussing the battle for the permanent Number One spot between David Ospina and Wojciech Szczesny, and the 51 year-old believes that it is up to the Pole to fight to regain his place in the Gunners Starting XI. "Wojciech has a big choice now, but he [.
Our very own little Spanish playmaker Santi Cazorla has revealed to Arsenal fans that he has always intended to go back to his original club Real Oviedo, who were his local club as a youth player. There have been many rumours that the 30 year-old has been homesick for Spain, although lately most of the [.
Arsene Wenger now has practically his whole Arsenal squad fit and ready (only Oxlade-Chamberlain is definitely out) ahead of this weekends FA Cup semifinal against Reading at Wembley, and it will be very interesting to see how many changes Le Prof makes for the game. Wenger is well-known for giving his fringe players a run [.
If only the Premier League was decided by stats then Arsenal would be currently sitting right on top of the pile and Arsenal fans would be searching their attics for the bunting that has not been needed since 2004. Or that is what the stats compiled by Squawka.com on all the Premier League clubs would [.
As well as being great news for Arsenal fans who are looking forward to Arsene Wenger being able to sign more top class players like Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil before the start of next season, the recent words from the Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis suggest that the club's hierarchy are no longer happy [.
It might seem a little harsh to get on the back of the Arsenal and France international star Olivier Giroud this week, after the striker put in a disappointing and ineffective performance against Burnley. We did win after all and Giroud has been on fire lately so perhaps he deserves some leeway. But when our [.
Arsenal are currently on an eight-game winning streak for the first time since the season when they were unbeaten all year and are making an unlikely last-minute dash to try and catch Chelsea at the top of the Premiership. Arsene Wenger admitted that he himself is surprised by the run as much as anyone else, [.
Arsenal's two longest serving crocks for the injury room are set to feature again tonight for the Gunners Under 21 side, and you can watch it live for free on Arsenal.com In an interesting preview to Arsenal's FA Cup semi-fnal at Wembley on Saturday, we will be taking on the Reading U21 side at the [.
I think most Arsenal fans would rather have seen a drawn game between Manchester United and Man City at the weekend and I know for sure that we were all gutted when former Gunner Cesc Fabregas scored in the last couple of minutes to give Chelsea a vital three points away to a QPR side [...]
Not many Gooners could imagine Arsenal being as high as second in the League right now after our disastrous start to the season. Our usual horrendous injury list also disrupted the first half of our season, but since then we have gradually got our act together. Our CEO Ivan Gazidis (like Wenger) regrets the early [.
It is amazing that Arsenal have let such a promising (and prolific) young striker as Benik Afobe be sold this season, and could be construed as very strange behaviour from Arsene Wenger, considering that the Frenchman sets high store on bringing hot young English players through the youth system. Afobe has always been a high-profile [.
The Chelsea keeper Petr Cech has made it clear that he will be looking to leave Chelsea this summer, and the Blues have already admitted that he would be able to have some say in where he plays next as a sign of respect to his years of loyalty to the Blues. According to the [...]
Looking back at a rather resilient victory against Burnley at Turf Moor in which Arsenal kept a clean sheet, it is not much of a surprise to see Francis Coquelin be named the Man of the Match and praised extensively by pundits and Arsenal fans alike. Now while there is no denying that the Frenchman [.
Many Arsenal fans have been calling for Arsene Wenger to bring in a top defensive midfielder for the last few years, but nothing has materialised so far except that we got lucky when we recalled Francis Coquelin from Charlton. But now with Matthieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta getting on in years, we probably need a [.
The Arsenal manager has been expressing his concern about next season already, after the Premier League clubs voted to accommodate next summers Euro championship tournament by starting and finishing the season early. And after the way the Gunners struggled to get going in the early stages of this season after the World Cup and issues [.
Two summers ago, Arsenal were on the verge of taking Demba Ba to the Emirates on loan from Chelsea, but after Arsene Wenger unveiled the purchase of Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid, Jose Mourinho decided to block Ba's move as he considered Arsenal a rival for the title. Now it seems that last summer, Arsenal [.
Wojciech Szczesny was hailed as Arsenal's big star of the future when Arsene Wenger made him his Number One at just 21 years of age, but this season his star has fallen right out of the sky. He was unceremoniously dropped by Wenger after some ridiculous mistakes against Southampton on New Years Day and was [.
Why Arsenal Must Keep Rosicky! by AT As the summer transfer window approaches, Arsenal fans will be expecting at least a world-class player or two to come in, whilst also hoping for a few fringe players to be shown the door. Mikel Arteta, Abou Diaby and Mathieu Flamini are the players I'd like to see [.
After last weeks majestic 4-1 demolition of Liverpool at the Emirates, it was always going to be hard to emulate the performance at relegation-threatened Burnley yesterday, but Aaron Ramsey's early slice gave the Gunners a lead to defend. It wasn't pretty, but Arsenal held on to record their eighth straight win in the Premiership, and [.
It was a good all-round effort from Arsenal, but the heroes of the day mostly came from the defensive side of the team, who managed to keep Burnley at bay for the whole 90 minutes... Ospina 7 Another assured display from the Colombian under the aerial theat from Burnley. A clean sheet says it all... [.
Chelsea are preparing to face QPR this afteroon knowing that Arsenal have risen to just four points behind them in the title race after grinding out the three points against lowly Burnley yesterday. Arsene Wenger predicted that it would be a tough match yesterday and so it was, in fact my MOTM, Francis Coquelin, thinks [.
The Gunners are now four points from the top of the table, and if their bums start squeaking then Arsenal are poised to make them suffer at the end of the season. How is that going to happen? You may well ask, and here we have the answer! One of our readers (Thanks BasilJunior) has [...]
With every improvement in performance from Arsenal and every game we win to keep climbing up the Premier League table, thoughts inevitably turn to whether the current version of the Gunners is good enough to emulate the sort of success that we had in the first decade under the managerial reign of Arsene Wenger.
Arsene Wenger had clearly got across his message to the Arsenal players that Burnley would be no pushovers and could cause an upset if we were not on our game. So the Gunners started with energy and determination and it is just as well we did, because the home side were well up for it. [...]
Well after all the talk about Arsenal tactical changes to face a Burnley side that is very strong at Turf Moor and questions about which of the Gunners returning from injury might make their way back into the Arsenal team today, Arsene Wenger has decided to stick with the same staring XI that did so [.
Aaron Ramsey owes a lot to Arsene Wenger, after the Arsenal boss stuck by him when all but the most patient fan was ready for the Welshman to be released. Our central midfielder simply could not find the form that had made him a fan favourite and had persuaded Wenger to sign him from Cardiff [...]
If you believe the many Arsenal transfer rumours from last year, then Arsenal were seriously interested in signing the France international Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton. But the south coast club held firm and after the way the central midfielder has been central to a surprisingly good season for the Saints, you can understand why.
Can the Gunners bring this blistering form into next season and recreate 'The Invincibles'? by CR Arsenal have been in and around the top four of the Premier League for as long as most can remember. They may have won last season's FA Cup (see below) but it has been more than 10 years since [...]
In recent years Jack Wilshere has been a favourite of Arsene Wenger's and he seems to get preferential treatment from Le Prof when he is fit enough to play in Arsenal's starting XI, but on his latest return from the treatment table he feels like he has more competition for his position. "When I first [.
Arsenal passed a massive test of our current credentials last weekend in a brilliant way, keeping our slim title hopes alive and taking a big step towards securing another season in the Champions League and improving on last season's fourth place. But all out great work against Liverpool would be spoiled if the Gunners fail [.
Competition for the three places behind Chelsea in the Premiership is hotting up with just eight games to go. Arsenal moved up to second place last week when Man City slipped up at Crystal Palace, and Arsene Wenger is aware that his own team can't afford any slip-ups if they are to maintain the pace.
You will no doubt have heard by now about the Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that there could be an exciting and interesting summer transfer deal between Liverpool and the Gunners, involving our England forward Theo Walcott heading to Anfield and his international team mate Raheem Sterling coming to north London.
Sean Dyche may have been saying nice things about Arsene Wenger and the Frenchman´s achievements at Arsenal in the build up to the game this week, but that does not meant that the Burnley boss will be planning anything other than pain for our long serving manager. They may be struggling to avoid the drop [.
There are still many Arsenal fans calling for Arsene Wenger to invest in a top striker this summer, despite the brilliant form of Olivier Giroud, and one of the names most mentioned is Porto's Jackson Martinez, who has been highly praised by Wenger this season. Edison Cavani has also been touted as a possible top-of-the-range [.
If the Catalan giants from La Liga thought they would be able to prise another player out of Arsenal, they look set to be disappointed, as Hector Bellerin has declared his happiness at and dedication to the cause at Arsenal Football Club. The Spanish right back must surely be aware of the Arsenal transfer rumours [.
Frustration and fear are not two words that you would normally associate with a footballer doing well, but there is a good case for saying that they have been heavily connected with the way that Francis Coquelin has gone from being another failed Arsenal youngster who did not make the grade and fulfil his early [.
Arsenal are heading for their eighth Premier League win in a row, something that no other club has achieved this season, but to reach that milestone we first have to dispose of Burnley at Turf Moor this weekend. Burnley may be 17 places below us in the table, but Arsene Wenger is well aware that [...
Today I decided to write an article. As I started typing, I didn't know what it would be about, but as the first words began to appear, I thought of something. We have a whole week in between matches and nothing much to read about Arsenal besides fake transfer rumours and deadwood this, deadwood that, [.
Bring on the big guns by Sam P I think that most Arsenal fans, along with Arsene Wenger and the players, were really hoping that Blackburn Rovers could take advantage of Liverpool´s slump in form and a few suspensions to some key players to do the Gunners a big favour in our quest to retain [...]
Sean Dyche has done extremely well for a young manager, even though his team are fighting for relegation from the Premier League this season. He has shown that he can set up his team to match the Big Teams at home, as proven by beating Man City and drawing with Tottenham in their last two [...]
Many of us Arsenal fans thought we had seen the last of Abou Diaby in an Arsenal shirt as his contract is nearing an end and that one previous appearance this season, in the Capital One Cup defeat by Southampton in September, was followed by the latest in a ridiculously long string of injury problems.
You will not find many Arsenal fans who would disagree with the statement that the France international centre back Laurent Koscielny is the best defender in the Gunners´ squad. And now that our BFG Per Mertesacker seems to have shaken off the dip in form affecting his performances before the international break, that central pairing [.
Arsenal Set to Offer Wilshere New Bumper Contract, But Does He Deserve It? by AT Amidst reports of a potential £30 million bid that will come in from Manchester City for the Arsenal star Jack Wilshere, The Telegraph is now suggesting that Arsenal are ready to offer a new long-term deal with wages worth £150k [.
Arsenal must not take Burnley as lightly as Monaco by DN I really hope I am wrong about this but I get the feeling that a touch of complacency is creeping into the Arsenal as we prepare for Saturday´s late kick-off away to Burnley. It feels to me as though the Arsenal players and even [...]
Many Arsenal fans now think that the centre back position is finally in good shape at the club, with Arsene Wenger signing the versatile and talented Calum Chambers from Southampton last summer and then completing the January transfer of Gabriel from Villarreal. But this latest Arsenal transfer rumour reported by Metro suggests that the manager [.
Okay this is a very boring week, but we are now ABSOLUTELY sure that we are going to finish in the Top Four and Tottenham have NO CHANCE. In fact they will be lucky to even make the Mickey Mouse Thursday Cup, Soooo.... as we have to wait until the weekend to see Arsenal play, [...]
Alexis Insists Arsenal Are On The Way To Glory! by AT The Arsenal sensation Alexis Sanchez has today revealed his great desire to win silverware with the Gunners and has claimed that the North London side have everything it takes to claim trophy after trophy. With Arsenal in a rich vein of form which sees [.
Which of these 4 Old Guards are likely to leave this summer? by Sam P The words old guard might be a bit misleading, as only Abou Diaby of these long term Arsenal players is anywhere near reaching the football milestone of being 30-years old, but along with the perennially injured French midfielder, Theo Walcott, [.
Arsene Wenger may have come through the really hard years when Arsenal could not even afford to compete with the likes of Newcastle United in terms of transfer spending, never mind the clubs with mega rich sugar daddies throwing multi millions around, but we still expect to be significantly out-spent by Manchester United and Manchester [.
Only Arsene Wenger and perhaps those closest to our manager behind closed doors at Arsenal know what the Frenchman is planning for the summer transfer window. We can only really guess at which positions the boss will be looking to strengthen, never mind which particular players. But even though the Gunners are, as usual, pretty [.
Have Arsenal Really Tabled A Bid For This Former Liverpool Star? by AT As Arsenal look set to finish the season on a high note, there is no denying that Arsene Wenger still has to bring in reinforcements for the next campaign to have a more realistic push for the title. But while a defensive [...]
Arsenal fans are right to be upbeat by Sam P There are always some in the English football media who will do anything to stop the Arsenal fans being happy about anything. Trophy drought, trophy drought, trophy drought was the most over-used phrase in football for years and with all the cliches used that is [.
To be fair to them, many Arsenal fans would have liked Arsene Wenger to do exactly the same thing to our Premier League rivals that Jose Mourinho has been doing to the Gunners since he came skulking back to Chelsea from La Liga where he failed in his objective of stopping the dominance of Barcelona [.
When Arsenal fans see that Michael Owen has been talking about Arsenal, we do not exactly hold our breaths waiting for a stream of praise. This is the so-called football expert who predicts that the Gunners will drop out of the top four at the start of every season after all but he did play [...]
WOW!! ARSENAL ARE JOINT NUMBER ONE FORM TEAM IN EUROPE!!! BUT WHAT'S THE REAL SECRET BEHIND IT? Arsenal's seven-game winning streak has launched them to the top of the European form table. According to SkySports, Lazio is the only team to match that run in Europe having a four goal margin better than us [.
It is absolutely brilliant news for Arsenal that their treatment room has been emptied, and Jack Wilshere, Matthieu Debuchy, Abou Diaby, Serge Gnabry and Mikel Arteta all played in Arsenal's Under 21 win over Stoke City reserves. Wilshere and Gnabry both played the whole game and Diaby even managed 70 minutes on the pitch, so [.
Arsenal have had so many injury problems in recent times that most of us fans feel like medical experts. So when we saw Diego Costa pull up after just 12 minutes of Chelsea's narrow win against Stoke City last weekend, it appeared likely that the Brazilian born Spanish international would probably miss the rest of [.
I know that the Arsenal and England midfield star Jack Wilshere is not exactly flavour of the month with some Gooners, after another season hit by injury problems has seen the 23/year old manage just nine Premier League appearances so far. Many have lost patience with the Arsenal academy product who looked like he would [.
The football media has decided to give the Arsenal fans a big scare with some sensationalised headlines suggesting that the Gunners could be on the verge of losing our young Spanish right back Hector Bellerin to his boyhood club Barcelona, where he spent his formative years at their famous La Masia academy.
I know that stats do not tell the whole story by any means, but after the news that Arsenal were set to reward our Spanish left back with a pay rise and a new four year contract, I thought I would have a little look at how Nacho Monreal compared to some of the Premier [...]
When Arsenal took apart the Liverpool side of Brendan Rodgers that has been feted by the English media for their surge up the Premier League table after a shaky start to the season, it highlighted our own surge and the way that Arsene Wenger and the players have answered a lot of our critics and [...
Although Arsene Wenger brushed off media questions about Arsenal transfer interest in the young striker Paulo Dybala from Palermo is Serie A, we all know that this does not mean that the Gunners are not interested. The Frenchman may well have been trying to calm all the media talk down, which the Palermo president seems [.
After Arsenal banged in another four goals at the weekend as we cruised past Liverpool, only Chelsea have scored more Premier League goals than the Gunners and they have only one more than our 62, and no EPL club has scored more than our 89 in all competitions. It is not just the quantity either, [..
We all know how important pace has become in modern football and Arsenal have had some super quick players in the past, such as the club record goalscorer Thierry Henry. But as the great French striker showed, you need more than just pace to be a top player or a top team. When you add [...]
There have been so many outstanding performers for Arsenal at various stages of this season that the less eye-catching players have maybe gone under the radar and not been given the credit they deserve. With the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud grabbing the plaudits for their scoring exploits and some surprises from the [.
Who needs to leave Arsenal this summer? by ceofaruk Arsenal have a wealth of players but we still fall just a bit short of really competing for the Champions league and winning the Premier league. On our best days we can compete with anyone in Europe and it was a real shame we lost so [...]
There is a very likely chance that the Gunners will be bringing in a defensive midfielder this summer, so any Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with this position should be taken seriously. One of the most talked about in the last few weeks has been a bid for the unhappy PSG man Yohan Cabaye, who [.
There are many Arsenal fans who believe that the Gunners STILL need another top class centre-back, despite the arrival of Gabriel Paulista in January, although I think that most of them are hoping that Per Mertesacker will be leaving the club. Okay the BFG has not been fantastic this season, but I believe he is [.
Arsenal have just been handed a massive boost in our quest to at least improve on last season's fourth placed finish in the Premier League. Crystal Palace, helped for the last 15 minutes or so by Arsenal's own Yaya Sanogo, somehow managed to beat a pretty good Man City side. Palace were hanging on at [.
Why Arsenal should give Walcott a new deal by Sam P While there have been a fair few Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with the under fire Liverpool and England starlet Raheem Sterling, there have been plenty linking Theo Walcott with a possible move in the other direction. With Arsene Wenger hardly playing our flying [.
Despite the fact that the Arsenal and Colombian international number one has played just over half the amount of Premier League games as his Poland international rival Wojciech Szczesny this season, David Ospina has kept more clean sheets and made more punches and catches. A quick look at the stats comparison between the two on [.
Liverpool spanking not much of a surprise by KM Hello fellow Gooners around the world! Happy times to be a Gooner these days hey? Taking away a few games where we didn't look like ourselves, we've really kicked on this year. And the fact that we spanked Liverpool 4-1 which really is a result that [..
I know it sounds like a cliche (not to mention that it also implies that sometimes Arsenal DO NOT always defend together), but our little Spaniard Santi Cazorla thinks that he has found the secret to Arsenal's winning run particularly when talking about our spectacular success over Liverpool this weekend.
This is one of the longest running Arsenal transfer rumours I can remember outside of a transfer window since Lukas Podolski was signed and sealed (and even announced) before the season even ended. Alisha Usmanov is the latest to issue a denial for Arsenal, but perhaps "The lady doth protest too much, methinks.
It seems like years that I have been listening to Arsenal fans saying that Arsene Wenger's team is just two players short of winning the title. Even after the Gunners splashed out this summer the general consensus was that we desperately needed a beast of a defensive midfielder and another centre-back to complete the puzzle.
Both Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez scored in Arsenal's 4-1 demolition of Liverpool this weekend, which takes their respective totals to 18 for Giroud (despite missing many months out injured) and 20 for the sublime Chilean hitman. Arsene Wenger was obviously in a bullish good mood when he spoke to the Mirror, but you can't [.
That international break may have come at the perfect time for Arsenal, as it looked like quite a few key players and the team in general was running on empty a bit. We heard Arsene Wenger suggest a few times that the Gunners had run out of legs towards the end of games and that [...]
For some lucky Arsenal fans we only have to get a Tube to the game, or even just walk down to the local pub to watch the live broadcast. Most of us simply don't realise how hard it can be for supporters in other countries that love the Gunners just as much as us, but [...]
Arsenal are doing our bit by winning all our Premier League games and putting in very good performances, but unfortunately it is probably going to be a little to late after our struggles in the early part of the season. As the manager said yesterday, we still need Chelsea to slip up dramatically and even [.
Maybe Arsene Wenger will not be looking at the summer transfer of Yohan Cabaye to Arsenal as a cut-price deal, but I am fairly sure that his current club Paris Saint-Germain will after they paid almost £20 million for the France international midfielder a little over a year ago. But they have not really used [.
I am sure that it was as much of a relief as it was a joy for Alexis Sanchez to score for Arsenal against Liverpool today, it certainly looked that way from the way the Chile international celebrated. Not only did his superbly smashed goal seal the win for the Gunners by putting us 3-0 [...]
Arsene Wenger was not specifically bemoaning the crippling Arsenal injury list that he has had to cope with for the last two seasons at least, but you could forgive the boss for cursing his luck. There have been many reasons why Arsenal have not been crowned champions of England since that historic invincibles campaign over [.
Apart from two mistakes yesterday, the Arsenal and now Spain under 21 international right back Hector Bellerin put in another great performance for the Gunners. He scored a great goal after bemusing the Liverpool defence and beating Mignolet with a quality curling finish from his wrong foot to add to his debut goal against Aston [.
Arsenal came out of the traps flying against Liverpool yesterday and had the game wrapped up by half-time after goals from Bellerin, Ozil and Sanchez, but Olivier Giroud, who scored the fourth in the dying minutes, believes the Gunners could have been even further ahead. The Frenchman told Arsenal.com: "We knew that Liverpool start games [.
It doesn't seem that long ago that JustArsenal was over-run with AOB's that were filled with hate for Arsene Wenger simply because we couldn't win every single game we played in. The first half of his season was defined by injuries to nearly 50% of our squad, making it extremely difficult for Wenger to even [.
While Arsenal were inflicting more misery on Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool for the second game in a row, we handed a great advantage to Blackburn Rovers, the Championship side that will try to return the favour by knocking the Reds out of the FA cup on Wednesday. I am not taking anything for granted as [.
Although it looks like Arsenal have booked their place in the top four by beating Liverpool today and stretching the gap between us and fifth place to nine points, it is not all done and dusted. What Arsenal fans want now though is to keep winning games and to give Chelsea a real fight for [...]
There were some great performances from the Arsenal players today as we handed Liverpool a jolly good thrashing and effectively ended their chance and sealed ours of a top four finish. Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud and Hector Bellerin were all outstanding, while Coquelin, Ramsey and Monreal were excellent but not as eye catching, but for [.
If this game against Arsenal was a crucial one for Brendan Rodgers and his Liverpool team, it could hardly have gone any worse for them. And it could have massive repercussions for the club that their manager arrogantly suggested were bigger than Arsenal and more likely to provide the much talked about Raheem Sterling the [.
Santi Cazorla and Mesut Ozil are two of the Arsenal players that were most in need of a good rest during the international break and Arsene Wenger would have been hoping for them both to be fresh and raring to go for the crunch game with Liverpool. But Ozil played 90 minutes in both of [...]
I wonder if the Arsenal transfer rumours about us and the young Argentinean striker Paulo Dybala will now stop, after Arsene Wenger answered them with an emphatic negative in his press conference ahead of today's match against Liverpool. Probably not, because the president of Dybala's current club Palermo comes up with a new soundbite for [.
Can Arsenal bulldoze Liverpool's Top Four ambitions? Emirates Stadium Saturday 5th April 12.45 Arsenal host Liverpool in Gameweek 31 of their 2014/15 Barclays Premier League campaign, in a game that could potentially end the Reds' chances of achieving a top four finish. Both these Premier League heavyweights have been in scintillating form since the beginning [.
There is a rally being organized at Noon today, bringing together Arsenal and Liverpool fans groups, to protest about the way top clubs milk their supporters by charging astronomical ticket prices. Arsenal currently have the most expensive tickets in Europe and that doesn't look set to change anytime soon, despite the MASSIVE increase in TV [.
The biggest surprise for me in Arsene Wenger´s team selection for the game between Arsenal and top four rivals Liverpool today is not that both Mesut Ozil and Santi Cazorla will start, but that Per Mertesacker is preferred to the Brazilian Gabriel in the centre of our defence. With the pace and trickery of Raheem [.
After a great start from Arsenal when we pressed Liverpool high and forced them into mstakes, while our slick passing kept opening them up, Mignolet had to make two world class saves from Cazorla and Ramsey to keep the visitors level. But we didn't make the most of our dominance and then began to drop [.
Arsenal fans do not need me, or Olivier Giroud and Arsene Wenger for that matter, to tell you how important the Premier League clash at home to Liverpool tomorrow is. But the boss and our French striker, fresh from winning the awards for manager and player of the month for March, both spoke about how [.
Arsenal vs Liverpool: Three player battles to look forward to Arsenal host what could well be an under-strength Liverpool side at the Emirates this Saturday, looking to reinforce their current position on the Barclays Premier League table and dent a further blow to the Merseysiders' chances of a top 4 finish.
Arsene Wenger has pulled his Arsenal team up from the Europa League positions by winning every single game they played in March, but he doesn't want his team to have been put off by the interlull. He just wants to keep on winning! "It's a big game and an opportunity for us to continue our [...]
