There has been so much talk about the reason for Arsenal dropping off from that pinnacle point of the Premier League, when Arsene Wenger steered our team of stars to lift the trophy in 2004 without a single mark in the games lost column. To have failed to win the title since that amazing achievement [.
This may be a little harsh on the Arsenal players Jack Wilshere and Mathieu Flamini, who in theory could form a third Arsenal central midfield of their own, but I think that there are two clear options for Arsene Wenger to select to start for the Gunners. I am assuming that what we have seen [...]
When Arsenal finished off a very strong second part of last season in style with our demolition of Aston Villa at Wembley. It made the Gunners the most successful club ever in the FA cup and gave people the belief that Arsenal were finally looking capable of winning the Premier League again. So we did [.
There has already been talk about this possible transfer to Arsenal being done this summer, but it was all quite a while back now and with no mention of it in the papers recently, I assumed that the move for Christophe Lollichon was not going to happen. Maybe Arsene Wenger and his transfer team decided [.
It is definitely the biggest and most exciting of all the Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds at the minute and even though the transfer of Karim Benzema from Real Madird to the Gunners may have seemed just a pope dream at the beginning of the summer, there was a growing belief that it might [.
Sport loves a bit of drama. It makes it compelling for viewers, supporters and the players alike when there is a little off-the-field action that makes the on-field action spicy. We are talking about the Gunners' prodigal son Cesc Fabregas. The Spaniard was a crowd favourite during his time at the Emirates Stadium.
Sunday's Community Shield is all about one player. We've taken a look at whether Mourinho made the right choice and how much Arsenal will truly benefit from their new man, Petr Cech. by RC The Community Shield focuses on two teams. The Premier League Champions and the FA Cup winners. However, this Sunday's encounter between [.
Arsenal are two players away from winning the EPL Discuss by MA Almost everyone seems to be agreeing with that statement, apart from the one person who really has the say, Arsene. Interestingly they are all pointing at a center foward and a recognized DM. So my question is, why do "we" think so? [...
I think that the Arsenal boss is doing exactly the right thing in the latest episode of the verbal battle between him and the manager of our Premier League rivals Chelsea. There is no doubt that Jose Mourinho will keep trying to get under the skin of Arsene Wenger, both before and after the two [...]
A lot of Arsenal fans and members of the football media in general were talking about our England international midfielder Jack Wilshere at this point last year and suggesting that he was facing a very important and perhaps pivotal season in his football career. Wilshere had hardly featured for England at the World Cup finals [.
On the one hand it would be better for Arsenal if we take on a full strength Chelsea side in the Community Shield on Sunday, as long as the Gunners end up with the trophy back in north London of course. But the most important thing is for us to win the game and for [...]
Mourinho right to say Arsenal should be winning titles by DN While I know that Jose Mourinho's words this week on the subject of Arsenal were just an attempt to put some pressure on the club and Arsene Wenger ahead of the Community Shield and the start of the Premier League, I do think that [...]
You have to feel sorry for all those football journalists out there trying to keep the Arsenal transfer rumour mill going with not even a trickle of help from Arsene Wenger. A nice early deal with the signing of Petr Cech and then nothing is perhaps why they are getting a bit desperate. The rumours [.
There are many reports saying that Fernando Llorente's agent is in London for talks with Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, although Man United and Real Madrid (really?) are also said to be in the running, with the Gunners being favourites to sign the out-of-favour Juventus failure for a fee of around £8.
It would be pretty amazing for the Arsenal and Chile star Alexis Sanchez to be able to play any part at all on the Premier League opening weekend, but this is Alexis we are talking about Gooners and he has already proved a number of times since coming to north London that we have a [...]
Not a game into the season and the mind games have begun already by KM Well, well, now. The Arsenal transfer news may be as dry as the Sahara desert, but Jose Mourinho's mouth was full of wet words for Arsenal once again. I mean how do you not just hate the guy. His methods [...]
The Questions for THE Quest by SB The Quest for the title continues. I believe this is the season where we are and will be considered serious title contenders. All the teams (title contenders) have strengthened and so did we. We strengthened defense. Petr Cech is the biggest part of this upgrade and Gabriel has [.
Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger have had our fair share of moans about the Premier League officials over the years and often with good reason. And for a team that has often been filled with creative, technically adept but not necessarily physical players, the Gunners disciplinary record has been pretty poor.
For the last few transfer windows there have always been Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with a possible move for the exciting young talent Julian Draxler. But there has always seemed to be something in the way of the Gunners and his club Schalke getting the deal done and now it looks like it could [.
We knew that it would not take long and with Arsenal due to face Chelsea in the Community Shield game at Wembley on Sunday before the Premier League season kicks off next weekend, Jose Mourinho has not been able to help himself from having a dig during one of his pre-season press conferences. I very [.
There have been a lot more versions of the Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with a move for the Real Madrid and France striker Karim Benzema in the last week or so, with many of them from reliable media sources like The Telegraph, claiming that the Gunners were going back with an improved offer of [.
Arsene Wenger oversaw his side add another pre-season trophy with the Emirates Cup on Sunday. He then went on to confirm that the forward Theo Walcott, who incidentally was the goal scorer, is close to signing a new contract with the Gunners. The contract for the English forward expires at the end of next season [.
Arsenal won the Emirates Cup for the first time since the 2010-11 season with the only goal coming from Theo Walcott helping them beat Wolfsburg. The Emirates Stadium must have been filled with really happy supporters but the expectations would be to win more prestigious trophies. This is the second pre-season trophy of the summer [.
Arsenal transfer activity, preview by RPK Can Arsenal finally win the Premier league after more than a decade? For the first time since we left Highbury, I feel like we have the billing of a genuine Premier League title contenders. After winning two FA cups and a Community shield in the last two seasons, the [.
Arsene Wenger has just over a month to add any more players to the current Arsenal squad, but it does not look as though the Frenchman is in much of a hurry. In fact there is a growing feeling that he might only do so if the next few weeks throw up an injury problem [...]
Ramsey's best role Part 1 by JC Before I begin the aim of this two part piece is not to claim that Arsenal don't need another defensively minded midfielder in our squad, as I too, think we are a quality midfielder short. More to evaluate one of our extremely talented midfielders and how to properly [.
I was getting a little concerned about the young Arsenal and England international star Calum Chambers and his place in the current Gunners side and I would not be surprised if the graduate from the Southampton academy had not been thinking the same at times this summer. Chambers hardly featured for Arsenal towards the end [.
I could well be wrong about this and it would not be the first time that Arsene Wenger had sprung a surprise with his Arsenal starting line-up, but I am going out on a limb and suggesting that two of the three forward roles for the Community Shield clash with Chelsea at the weekend have [...]
As we have seen over the last few weeks, Arsenal do not have a lot of problems on the creating goals and scoring them side of the game. Even with our somewhat disappointing season last time around, there were only seven times in 55 games when the Gunners drew a blank. So with us already [...]
Arsenal in danger of over-confidence by DN Although I have enjoyed seeing Arsenal blast through our pre-season preparations after picking up where we left off last season, I do still have a little bit of concern that the success in recent weeks and the relative ease with which we have achieved it, could actually leave [.
Arsene Wenger was quick to play down the bold and incautious boasting from the Arsenal director Lord Harris this week. The claim made by the member of our board was that the manager could afford to sign just about any player in the world and that the club would let Wenger use the reportedly available [.
Although it was not as impressive in general for Arsenal yesterday, there were some good individual performances from players like Walcott, Akpom, Chamberlain and particularly young Reine-Adelaide but our best player for me was Jack Wilshere who was involved in most of our good moves and looks to be getting back to his best.
Hello folks. Straight off to our smashing Emirates Cup win, it all looked good. We were quick, we scored goals, we let the youngsters shine and the fairy tale looks good. The problem is, this is a movie we've seen before. We have a good squad, full of pace. I was impressed with the Ox. [...]
Arsenal finished last season in style and we have taken up where we left off, with four wins out of four in the pre-season games, despite the squad rotation and youth player additions. We have lots of promising youngsters and just about all the senior midfielders and strikers nicked a goal or two in our [.
It is an excellent bit of Arsenal transfer news that Wenger is sending Wojciech Szczesny off to Roma for next season and hopefully keeping David Ospina as backup if (God forbid!) Petr Cech gets injured. This is the obvious solution for all concerned but admittedly many Gooners were worried that Szczesny would be retained while [.
In yet another indication that Arsenal will not be buying a new striker, Wenger started Theo Walcott as centre-forward against Wolfsburg yesterday, and the Englishman scored the winning goal. I am now thinking that Walcott is waiting for Wenger to give him proof that he will not be bringing in more competition up front before [.
With our form good and our confidence high, Arsenal fans are understandably looking up the Premier League rather than over our shoulders. So it is the two teams that finished above the Gunners, Chelsea and Man City, that we are looking at as the main obstacles to a Premier League title. But maybe we should [.
It appears that it has not taken long for representatives of Arsenal Football Club and The England international star Theo Walcott to come to an agreement over the terms of a new contract, even though the 26-year old refused to shed any light on the situation after scoring the only goal of the game against [.
Perhaps it was a case of after the Lord Mayor's show for Arsenal today, although we should also give credit to our German opponents Wolfsburg who made it difficult for the Gunners from the off. Whatever the case, after the stunning six goal showing against Lyon yesterday, Arsenal struggled for the same fluency.
Arsene Wenger has gone with an almost completely different Arsenal starting line-up to the one that took the French club Lyon apart yesterday, with just our club record signing Mesut Ozil keeping his place. The manager must be very happy with the fitness of the German international to play him again so soon and he [.
If you take a quick look at the managers around in English Premier League, you will find that the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is in a different league of his own. Wenger has managed more matches at Arsenal than the combined total of games of all his Premier League rivals at their current clubs. It [.
The Arsenal midfielder and Wales star Aaron Ramsey has revealed for the first time that he is keen to play in Spain during his career. He went on to describe the interest from La Liga giants Barcelona as "flattering". The Welshman joined the club from Cardiff in 2008. Our manager Arsene Wenger had to beat [.
Arsenal's pre-season games has seen our side score 13 goals in just three games. Our much criticized hitman Olivier Giroudgot the first goal yesterday. Our young striker-in-waiting Chuba Akpom scored a hat-trick against theSingapore XI and even Alex Iwobi, another youth player, scored his first goal for the senior side.
Arsene Wenger must have been happy to see his wards continue their pre-season preparations with a dominant performance against Ligue 1 side Lyon. Arsenal brushed aside the French side with a 6-0 friendly win. There were goals for Olivier Giroud, Aaron Ramsey, Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain, Mesut Ozil and a late one for Santi Cazorla.
It is easy to get carried away with Arsenal's pre-season form, especially when your team slots six goals with no response. Naysayers will be quick to remind us about Yaya Sanogo. The lanky forward burst into the scene with a wonderful exhibition of skill and finishing at the Emirates Cup last pre-season.
It was brilliant for us all to watch Arsenal take apart the French Ligue 1 runners up yesterday, continuing the free scoring pre-season preparations with six unanswered goals. But it might not have been quite so enjoyable for the England international midfielder Jack Wilshere. The 23-year old was not even on the subs bench yesterday, [.
Last summer saw Arsenal fans very optimistic about us winning the title, but the combination of the World Cup hangover and an incredibly long injury list scuppered our chances of keeping up with Chelsea in the early stages of the campaign, but this year Arsene Wenger sounds even more confident of challenging but he's refusing [.
Arsenal carried on their scintillating form today with an excellent 6-0 win over Lyon (by the way, do you like the title? Think about it....) and they are building a good head of confidence leading up to the massive Community Shield game against Chelsea. The best thing for me is that there were six different [.
Footballs, and lots of them, are being kicked around by Arsenal and our rivals as the opening weekend of the Premier League season hoves into view like the sail of a ship to a man stranded on a desert island. This is a time when every fan is full of optimism and every manager is [...]
Until Arsene Wenger spends some of Arsenal's reported £200 million on a centre forward or until the summer transfer window slams shut in a little over a month from now, there will be Arsenal transfer rumours linking the Frenchman with any and every striker the football media can think of. The Gunners' one and only [.
Dietmar Hamann has had plenty to say in the past about Arsenal and our deficiencies and his comments have usually centred around Arsene Wenger's stubborn refusal to sign the defensive midfielder that many Arsenal fans and onlookers thought the Gunners were in desperate need of. So fair play to the former Liverpool and Germany star [.
Well well, his lordship Baron Harris of Peckham must have certainly enjoyed his Chardonnay-fueled lunch before speaking with Nik Simon of the Daily Mail! Goodness me he certainly set the cat amongst the pigeons with his comments about "£200 million in the bank" for AW to spend. First of all, you never disclose as a [.
At this time of the year, every club goes ahead with their plans for a new striker. As we wrote earlier, every club goes around trying to find a striker who can convert that 15 goals to 20 and may be to 25. Getting a striker who can give you 25 goals a season is [...]
I am not trying to tell the Arsenal manager what to do, and I doubt very much whether he would take much notice if I did, but I will go ahead and give Arsene Wenger my thoughts on the matter of which 11 players I think he should pick to start the first of our [...]
After the Arsenal director Lord Harris dropped the bombshell today about Arsene Wenger being able to spend almost any amount he liked to bring in a big name player or players to the club, the football media is understandably full of talk about who the Frenchman should splash the cash on and a lot of [.
Arsenal fans were greeted this morning with all that exciting talk about a £200 million transfer kitty, after the Arsenal director Lord Harris made the very bold, and possibly foolish, statement that the Gunners could afford to sign just about any player in the world except Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi.
All this talk about Arsenal splashing out the millions on a new striker must be making Olivier Giroud very nervous indeed. We found out last season that the Frenchman is a sensitive soul and his game can be put off by the idea of Wenger buying a striker, or even by Thierry Henry saying that [...]
Pre-season form means little to Arsenal title hopes by DN I am not trying to say that Arsenal would be better off losing a game or two in the build up to our latest attempt to win the Premier League but when I see how carried away some of the Arsenal fans are getting after [...]
Arsenal kick off their latest Emirates Cup campaign against the French club Lyon tomorrow, hoping to lift our home ground trophy for the first time since 2010. And with a shorter than usual summer break for the players due to the Euro 2016 tournament next summer, tomorrow's game and the one on Sunday against the [.
If you were looking for a sign of whether all the confidence among us Arsenal fans and the nice things (for a change) said about us in the football media at the minute are an accurate depiction of where the current crop of Gunners stands when compared to our main rivals for the Premier League, [...]
You have got to hand it to the Arsenal Board. Every summer, Ivan and his cronies manage to tell us how many squillions of Pounds Arsene Wenger has at his disposal IF he wanted to buy a few superstars to join the team. This year is no different, but this time it is Lord Harris [...]
Depending on how quickly the Arsenal and Chile star Alexis Sanchez gets back to match fitness and into the swing of the new season, the Gunners will have to manage between one and four games without our best player of last season. And with all the talk of how much our slow start cost us [...]
Today has brought bad news on the Arsenal rumour front as it has been reported that the Barcelona starlet Sergi Samper is definitely NOT on his way to the Emirates, which only goes to show that Arsene Wenger is probably not looking for any extra cover in the defensive midfield position, so we will have [.
Quite a few of the Arsenal squad and Arsene Wenger himself have all suggested that the Germany international Mesut Ozil could be the difference between success and failure for the club in the season to come and that success will surely be judged on our finishing position in the Premier League table next May.
Arsenal in pole position! by Sam P It may turn out that Arsene Wenger and all concerned are left regretting the lack of Arsenal transfer action as the Premier League season wears on. Not only could we be hit with the usual raft of injury problems, but we might find that a few key players [...]
For those Arsenal fans out there who fancy a flutter, you can still get a pretty good price of around 5 to 1 for Arsene Wenger to steer the Gunners to a first Premier League title since 2004 and I reckon those odds will drop quickly once the manager adds another couple of new signings [...]
With the start of the Premier League season edging ever closer and with Arsenal fans getting ready for the Gunners to get off to a better start than last time and send out a message to our Premier League rivals like Chelsea and Man City, Arsene Wenger has been talking in a report on the [...]
The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger may raid the Spanish giants Barcelona for one of their academy graduates. If he does prove successful, it certainly will not be the first time he's poached a Barca youngster. The starlet in question is Sergi Samper and it is being reported that the player is considering a move to [.
Arsenal look ready to begin their onslaught on the league title by DH With the pre-season off to a flying start Arsenal already look ready to start their Premier League campaign and mount a serious offense on the title. After a fantastic end to last season, the signing of a highly experienced goalkeeper, pre-season form, [.
Today's Arsenal Thoughts by TJ It's instructive that this is the strongest pre-season squad we have had in a very long time. The first pre-season Ozil has had with the squad. Santi and Ozil are working magic together. Goodness me that's how football must be played. It's almost like taking street football tricks and turning [.
This time last year Arsenal fans were in confident mood ahead of the new season. We had won the FA Cup and had brought Alexis into the fold. We were being linked to Karim Benzema as usual and every post on JustArsenal was saying that we needed a new beast of a DM and a [...]
The Arsenal vice-captain Per Mertesacker believes that his team can win the title next year but for that, the team needs to hit the ground running immediately. The Gunners have begun their pre-season campaign in Singapore where they won the Barclays Asia Trophy by beating Everton in the final. Next up for Arsene Wenger and [.
There may be some very strong sides in other leagues around Europe but the strength in depth and the ability of any team to beat another makes the Premier League the toughest in the world and that is exactly the task facing Arsenal this season. It will be a long hard road for Arsene Wenger [...]
There is an argument that the biggest thing holding back Arsenal Football Club, after the years of financial hardship finally came to an end that is, has been the injury and fitness situation. So the signs that this is now coming to an end with the help of some new conditioning experts on the back [.
'We are ready for a title charge' by LPKMTY There are plenty of Arsenal fans that do not believe we have enough to mount a credible title challenge this season but I am not one of them. I believe our squad is deep and dynamic enough to last the distance this time. Now clearly, a [...]
Is Money the key to Arsenal's title ambitions? ED I've seen a lot of people write about how "all we need is a CDM and Striker" and if those players were "World Class" that all our problems would be solved, perhaps not to that extent but there is an insinuation by most that we would [...]
Assuming that the Arsenal transfer rumours are right then we could soon be seeing the end of the second spell as a Gunner for the French midfielder Mathieu Flamini. Whether that means that Arsene Wenger will be going into the transfer market to sign another central midfielder, however, is anyone´s guess.
The clear divide between the Arsenal fans on the subject of Arsene Wenger, also known as the AKBs versus the AOBs debate, is not being talked about nearly as much these days, mainly because the Gunners have ended our long wait for a trophy and are looking a lot more likely to challenge for the [...]
Arsenal are now being linked with the young defender from Schalke, Sead Kolasinac. The Bosnian left-back, who can also play in the centre, is one of the success stories of the last couple of Bundesliga seasons and is a no brainer to be linked with other clubs. For Arsenal, there is an interesting byline to [.
Are Arsenal fans entitled to success? by JS The good and the wise will tell us that FA Cups no longer count as a barometer for success. They are mere trinkets. Arsenal can only be measured by reference to league titles and this is what a club of our stature deserves. At least that is [...]
Szczezny out, anybody in? by KM Hello there good ol' Arsenal fans. How've you been? What's up with the summer so far? We've landed the Barclays Asia Trophy which hopefully is the preparation for the Barclays Premier League one. Truth is we're close. As close as we've been for some time. What we started to [.
So the Ozil Rumour? Should we take the money. by ED So I don't know if you are aware of it or not but, according to various sources in the news Mesut Ozil, is the prime target for Juventus this transfer window... It seems so strange, this is the first time in a while our [...]
The Arsenal side is busy finishing off their engagements in Singapore after winning the Barclays Asia Trophy. At the same time, the rumour mill is busy churning stories and link ups on the activity at the Emirates Stadium. The latest speculation ties the towering Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko with a bid to sign him for [.
Can Arsenal land Karim Benzema? by RC A title challenging capture for sure. We took a look at him against fellow Frenchman Olivier Giroud to see how the two compare. Arsenal are set to put all their eggs into one basket after they gave up on Napoli's Gonzalo Higuain and instead lodged a £31 million [.
Speed Vs Intelligence the curious case of Mertesacker? by ED Let me address the obvious elephant in the room, Per is slow.. and It is often debated as to whether this makes him a liability to the Arsenal team. I mean there are numerous times (and I am sure I'm not alone on this [...]
The former England international keeper David James has gone against the grain of the football media and suggested that Arsenal have not done the right thing by completing the transfer of Petr Cech from Chelsea. While most have seen it as a real coup for the Gunners and a big step towards making us a [.
Following on from Arsenal becoming the most successful side in the cup´s history by winning a second FA cup final in a row, our excitement has been tempered by having an enforced six weeks of no football. Well, we did have the Copa America with Alexis scoring the winner. We also had the England U21's [.
There are still a lot of Arsenal transfer rumours out there and a good proportion of them are linking us with various big name strikers around Europe. And while Arsene Wenger has been fairly quiet in the transfer market so far, with just the £10 million or so for Petr Cech spent so far, we [...]
IMAGINE BENZEMA ..... by Uche Hello folks. Another game, another trophy. That is two trophies in our last three games! This is becoming predictable. I am bored of winning all these trophies already! Lol. Let us all have a bit of fun and enjoy this success while it lasts because while we are all very [.
Every year at this time, all the clubs clamour for one thing – getting a striker on board. Not just any striker but someone who can give you 15 goals a season or 20 goals a season. Is it an important criterion to land the title? Very much! If you have any doubts look back [...]
Although the contract talks between Arsenal and the representatives of our England international Theo Walcott are still going on and may go on for some time, it appears to me that both sides want to get the deal done and the talks are just to agree the details. The striker no longer seems to be [...]
Latest transfer reports coming out of Ajax talk about the possibility of the Dutch giants signing Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny. The Ajax director of football Marc Overmars has reportedly been in touch with the Gunners to find out about his availability. The Dutch club expects to lose their incumbent goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen to Manchester United.
It looks like being a long and anxious wait for the Arsenal fans this summer, or those of us that are hoping for Arsene Wenger to sign a top class centre forward anyway. Because it may well be that the transfer of the France international star Karim Benzema will not be done until the very [...]
Just when Arsene Wenger seemed to hint that he was not going to be entering the transfer market again this summer, we now find out that Matthieu Flamini is expected to be leaving the club in the next few days. Galatasary have reportedly agreed a transfer fee with Arsenal for the big Frenchman, who has [.
Some may not want to see it more than a training session but pre-season is an important start to any team. After all, this is the first time the whole Arsenal squad gets together before the new season and the manager tries different variations. To be frank, this is not the whole squad for the [...]
While it was a brilliant team performance from Arsenal in the final of the Asia Trophy; with Theo Walcott having proved to be in great form after our young striker Chuba Akpom hit a hat-trick in the opening game, the issue of the Gunners needing to sign a striker was highlighted once more. One of [..
Is Arsenal's transfer policy simply smoke and mirrors?by ED It seems as if recently everyone and their mom's uncle have been linked with Arsenal during this transfer window. First of all the whole CDM issue, it's an age old conundrum with Arsenal ... It's no secret that in recent seasons our vulnerability has been at [.
The Big Friendly Giant Per Mertesacker was a very weak link for Arsenal in the first half of last season, which he blamed on a World Cup hangover, and he only showed signs of improvement when Laurent Koscielny was restored as his partner. This coming season though, it looks like Gabriel Paulista has now settled, [.
The Arsenal winger cum striker Theo Walcott has started the preseason in the same way he ended the last campaign, as he scored the opening goal against Everton yesterday. The England international scored a hat-trick against West Brom on the last day of the season, and then followed it up in the FA Cup Final [.
Arsenal legend Thierry Henry believes that Arsenal can give a fight to Chelsea for the Premier League title next season but only if they strengthen further. Arsene Wenger started the transfer window brightly by acquiring the services of Petr Cech from Chelsea. But, after that, there is a big lull at the Emirates Stadium while [.
The Arsenal left-back Nacho Monreal insists that he is happy at Arsenal and plans to fight for his place in the starting XI. He had an impactful season last year and hopes to replicate the form that appears to have prompted clubs in Spain to sit up and take notice. The claim comes at a [...]
TRANSFER BLUES: UNDERSTANDING THE ARSENAL WAY by Uche Hello guys, good day to you all. It doesn't take a genius to decipher that many of us are going nuts about the fact that we are not signing players at the rate that Manchester United and Liverpool are doing. Of course both teams finished below us [.
It was a very impressive performance all round from Arsenal to beat Everton and I could have picked a few Gunners as the Man of the Match, such as Ozil or Walcott but I think Cazorla edged it with his goal and two assists. Cech 7 Looked a bit nervous at start but made [...]
Hello Arsenal fans. Although it may have been one of the most inspid performances in his three years in north London yesterday, But I would still take our domination over and victory against Everton in a very positive way if I was him. Why you ask? Why? Alright then I´ll tell you. Do not let [...]
The Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini may have had to sit on the bench yesterday, even though Francis Coquelin was not playing, and the Frenchman may have been thinking that his second spell as an Arsenal player may not have too long to run. I don´t think so because if Arsene Wenger does not use the [.
IS OUR CURRENT ARSENAL TEAM GOOD ENOUGH? by ICB Let us assume that Wenger sticks with what he's got and does not land another "opportunistic transfer" as Galen previously observed in his article. Is the team good enough? My answer is yes. but this depends on how LE PROF utilizes it. As we have observed [.
Jack Wilshere is at the cusp of an interesting season. And he wants to hold crunch talks with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger ahead of the new season. Wilshere wants to discuss where he stands in the pecking order before deciding on his plans. Wilshere has missed more games than he played for the Gunners in [.
Arsene Wenger has refused to rule out that he would be in the reckoning for signing the striker Karim Benzema from the Spanish giants Real Madrid. Arsenal and Wenger are in Singapore for their pre-season matches. After dispatching the Singapore Select XI 4-0, Arsenal are scheduled to meet Everton in the final of the Barclays [.
It could turn out to be the most important piece of transfer business done by Arsene Wenger for Arsenal in many a long year and the good news, Gooners, is that we have already done it. In fact it was done about a year ago and I do not mean the transfer of Alexis Sanchez [...]
He has already proved to the Arsenal fans that he had a big appetite for a fight, a desire to show what he can do in the toughest league in the world and a very strong character to go with the bundles of talent that were nurtured in two of the best academy systems in [...]
THE CASE FOR OUR STRIKERS by GOONER100 Dear Gooners, I write this in response to the clamour from many Arsenal fans on this site, half of whom believe we have no chance of improving our league position, unless we secure a 'world class' centre forward. I have read various articles on various sites and seen [.
Arsene Wenger admits that it is only paperwork that is between Yaya Sanogo and joining Ajax on loan. He also thinks that it would be to the benefit of the forward. The presence of two former Arsenal legends at the Dutch club is a cause of optimism for Wenger. Marc Overmars is the director of [...]
Arsenal fans will finally get the chance to see the summer signing that we all hope will make the difference in our challenge to regain the Premier League title next season, after Petr Cech watched from the bench as the Gunners won the first match of pre-season to qualify for the final of the Asia [.
It may have only been the second game of pre-season for Arsenal and although there was a piece of silverware on offer, you would say that this final against Everton was more about preparation for the serious business to come, it was very good to see the Gunners put on a very good performance. Arsene [.
With Arsene Wenger having decided not to pursue the transfer of Morgan Schneiderlin, assuming the Arsenal transfer rumours linking him with us were right in the first place, there would appear to be a little less competition in the centre midfield of the Arsenal team for the coming season. Both Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere [.
The former Gunner and England international Ray Parlour knows a thing or two about what makes up a successful central midfield and another of his specialist subjects is Arsenal. So it is always worth listening to his opinion on the current version of the Gunners and what we are doing right or wrong. Without laying [.
It certainly looks like this is going to be a typical Arsenal transfer window, full of frustration with the fans complaining about Wenger not investing some of that so-called 100 million 'war chest'. Wenger has already detailed the extra players he has available compared to the start of last season, and he is confident that [.
In the same week that the Arsenal and France international striker Olivier Giroud spoke again about the comments made by his predecessor for club and country towards the end of last season, Thierry Henry has healed the rift between the two forwards even further. I do not know whether Henry had his words about Giroud [.
I think it is fair to say that the majority of Arsenal fans last summer had much higher hopes that one of our young strikers Joel Campbell was going to have a much bigger influence on the season for the Gunners as another in the shape of Yaya Sanogo. Even though the tall Frenchman had [...]
There were some rumours in the football media last week that claimed that the Arsenal boss had made the opening move in this transfer saga by personally phoning the Real Madrid and France striker Karim Benzema to sound him out about a possible move to north London and the Premier League. Whether this has any [.
With Petr Cech being Arsenal's only arrival of this transfer window, all Gooners are impatiently waiting for some sign from Arsene Wenger that he is possibly targetting a new DM or superstriker, but the signals coming from Le Prof seem to indicate there will be no more new signings. In an interview on Arsenal.
All Arsenal fans are used to the Gunners being linked with Karim Benzema every single transfer window since he was a raw youngster at Lyon, but there seems to be a bit more meat in the rumour this time around. Most pundits are saying that Wenger and Benzema are waiting to see which new arrivals [...]
The Arsenal and England international defender Kieran Gibbs had to watch from the bench as the Gunners made the perfect start to the pre-season preparations with a comfortable 4-0 demolition of the Singapore XI but he will be hoping to start the final of the Barclays Asia trophy against Everton tomorrow.
There have been some ridiculous things said about Gonzalo Higuain, one of the strikers that has been the subject of many Arsenal transfer rumours this summer, by the president of his Serie A club Napoli. Aurelio De Laurentiis does not seem to be able to help himself either, as he is in the papers again [.
A lot has already been said about Arsenal and the need for us to put right one of the big problems of last season, namely starting slowly. Arsene Wenger has admitted that it took the Gunners way too long to really get on a roll and although there were a lot of injury problems as [...]
Although it is a bit like waiting for a gunfight at High Noon for Arsenal fans and our transfer action at the moment, complete with tumbleweeds, nervous silence and the trickle of sweat down the top lip, there are still some Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds. A few in the football media were reporting [.
Arsene Wenger has revealed that he wants to include Chuba Akpom in his first team plans for the coming season. The 19-year-old youngster impressed all watching Arsenal fans in the first match of Arsenal's pre-season tour. Akpom scored a hat-trick as he helped Arsenal beat Singapore Select XI 4-0 in the semi-final of the Barclays [.
He could hardly have got the latest phase of his career with Arsenal off to a better start, with a well taken hat-trick against the Singapore Select XI side to cap off an impressive performance, but is the young England international striker Chuba Akpom really the answer to our striker problem? We do not even [.
Arsenal v Singapore XI player ratings by Anonymous! Martínez 7 Hardly touched the ball in the 45 minutes he played. Showed some good distribution when called upon. Monreal 7 Good going forward putting some decent crosses in and offering more options up front. Tidy if not spectacular. Let their Argentinian winger [.
Are Arsenal just Opportunistic? By Galen One of the best things about Mr Wenger is that the media or fans never know what he is up to. Arsenal football club have got a reputation and a history of being very secretive in their dealings. Today I want to ask the Arsenal fans if we have [...]
On the face of it this is bad news for Arsenal, but for those fans that have been hoping that Arsene Wenger would sign another deep lying central midfielder during the summer transfer window, it might come as a welcome bit of news. One man who will definitely not be happy is the Arsenal club [...]
How many of Arsenal supporters will be enticed by the prospect of signing a new striker? How many of these supporters will be happy if the striker being signed is Karim Benzema? It is public knowledge that the French striker Benzema is a long term target of Arsenal and manager Arsene Wenger. Even before joining [.
The most important thing and almost certainly the primary goal for the Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin in the coming season is to cement his place in the starting line-up for the Gunners. He does not even need to improve really, although that would of course be great news for us. To be fair to the [.
Surely Cech cannot be our only summer signing? by KM Hi folks. Straight off the back of Arsenal landing in Singapore, Arsene Wenger was asked the usual summer questions of signings. He said "If we find ideally what we want, we are still hoping to do something else". This statement disappoints me because we should [.
The transfer market business isn't going in the way Arsenal fans expected. Not only Arsene Wenger isn't making any business but it appears that he categorically ruled out any more transfers until after his pre-season trials. Petr Cech is the only notable addition to the senior squad; in fact he is the only addition.
It was only the first game of pre-season for Arsenal today and playing against a Singapore select XI was never going to be the toughest test for the Gunners. However, it was a great start for us and could hardly have gone better, especially for the young English striker Chuba Akpom who completed the full [.
Maybe all those concerned with the success of Arsenal in the Premier League in the coming months will have something to worry about if the reports about this transfer deal turn out to be true and the Spanish international striker Pedro Rodriguez does join our rivals Chelsea from Barcelona this summer.
A little later today should mark the Arsenal debut of our new keeper Petr Cech, as I am fairly sure that Arsene Wenger will hand his only major signing of the summer transfer window so far the role of first choice in the Gunners starting line up. The boss will want to get his new [...]
The transfer window, so far, may not have gone according to the script for the Gunners supporters. Most, if not all, of the fans were happy to welcome Petr Cech to the squad early in the window. For a change, everyone thought Arsene Wenger will move quickly and finalize his targets before the pre-season tour [.
The Gunners are off to the pre-season to Singapore but the transfer market is still abuzz with news, rumours and everything that's flying left, right and center. And the rumours kept following Arsene Wenger to the pre-season trip. Just as Morgan Schneiderlin signed for Manchester United, everyone started questioning if it was a loss for [.
One of the best things to happen during the transfer season is to read about how every other player is linked to Arsenal. But, the other side of the coin is to read all those stories that keep linking Arsenal players with the exit door. So, one of the latest speculations coming out of the [...]
Arsene Wenger seems to be the calmest man connected with Arsenal Football Club at the minute. While us fans are in the usual summer routine of waiting anxiously for the Frenchman to make some big waves in the transfer market and hopefully wading through a daily mountain of Arsenal transfer rumours, Wenger has got his [.
Arsene Wenger had some words of encouragement today for the Arsenal fans that are desperately waiting for the Frenchman to pull his finger out and spend some money in the summer transfer window. The manager suggested that there may well still be a few arrivals and that the signing of Petr Cech did not spell [.
Are Arsenal too slow to Act? By Galen Having read the comments from most Arsenal fans across the globe from Asia, Africa, USA, Latin America and of course our UK fan base, the big topic is should we start panicking? Truth be told I will be deceitful If I said I wasn't worried by the [...]
With Arsene Wenger having made just one addition to the Arsenal first team squad before jetting off to Singapore for the first phase of pre-season, many football observers have been left wondering whether the Frenchman has completed his transfer business for the summer. Not according to the Daily Star he hasn't, as the paper is [.
I am sure that most Arsenal fans have been watching on and having a right old laugh about Raheem Sterling and the transfer saga involving the young England international, his club Liverpool and the chasing Man City. I even wrote an article the other day about how the ongoing wrangle was good for the Gunners [.
He was not talking about Arsenal and our surprise signing of Petr Cech from Chelsea when he said this, and we would need to have a medium with the ability to contact people from beyond the grave to get his opinion on that, but football has not changed enough in the last 35 years to [...]
A realistic analysis of Arsenal's squad for 2015/16 NM Arsenal have been linked to a number of new signings this summer from Benzema to Vidal (with Johnny Evans along the way), but is there really space in the squad for a score of new arrivals? Playing Football Manager and being a football manager are two [.
I dread to think just how many articles have been posted on Just Arsenal exhorting Arsene Wenger to buy a new defensive midfielder this summer, but many of us thought it would be dependent on Arsenal letting Mikel Arteta leave the club first. But now our club captain has revealed that there was hardly any [.
What Is Expected Of A Football Club's Supporters/Fans? by KAF So, here's the thing: some people think the word "fan" or "supporter", in football, means one who supports a club and its players and whole-heartedly accepts everything done by the clubs administrative board, coach, players and asks no question whatsoever even when it is glaring [.
WHO? WHAT? WHERE? WHY IS ONE CALLED "WORLD CLASS"? by JA Hey everyone, this transfer window being the usual... huh? Smoke and mirrors from the boss, what's not to like? So we've only signed a 33 year old Czech Republic goal keeper, shirt 33 who's played 333 games in the premier league, and we're going [.
Global fanbase, money, signings and Arsene Wenger. by KM Hello folks. Apologies for somehow missing Arsenal's Singapore trip in my last article. So another Asia tour is on the way. I get the idea, it's a huge market that generates a lot of income. If you want to be a modern super-club you need to [.
TACTICAL VS LOGICAL by JA Hey guys, hope you are all okay. I just thought I'd pop in with a word about the Arsenal squad again. So, there's a whole lot of transfer window hysteria down in the comments section, most of the fans claim we have no chance of winning the premier league with [...]
Pre-season is generally the time when clubs try to fit the players – old and new, in their system. Pre-season is also the time when players try to impress their managers in a bid to earn a place in the long-term plans. This isn't anything strange or different. This year Arsenal's pre-season tour to Singapore [.
With the pre-season ready to kick-in, every member of the Arsenal squad will be looking to impress the gaffer. After all, this is a big chance that can guarantee a place in the first team for the next season. This could be the trip that would open up a couple of spots and then close [...]
The signing of Petr Cech signaled intent to the transfer market that Arsene Wenger is looking to mount a serious challenge to the Premier League. Now, the next step is to strengthen other areas that require immediate attention. Okay, this isn't something that can have a direct or straight answer. Ask 10 supporters and you [.
Unlike most Arsenal fans, the Wales international midfielder Aaron Ramsey seems very relaxed about the lack of action from the Gunners in the transfer market. With just the Czech Republic number one added to the Arsenal first team so far, Rambo is full of confidence that we already have what it takes to challenge last [.
It was never likely for Arsenal to use our young French international striker Yaya Sanogo as a first team player this season. And the fact that the tall 22-year old was not one of the fringe players included in the Arsenal squad for the pre-season visit to Singapore to play in the Barclays Asia trophy [.
Dear Arsenal fans: Are we too harsh on our own Players and Club? by MN I have been following closely on what we expect of our players and coach and what we tell them, and for over a decade the story has always been the same Criticism of the highest order I understand [...]
Having secured Petr Cech as part of Arsenal's new spine for next season, Gooners everywhere expected Wenger to follow this up with a new DM to compete with Francis Coquelin and definitely a new striker to give Olivier Giroud a rest up front, but now Wenger has revealed why he is in no rush to [...]
TRANSFER DILEMMA: TOP QUALITY PLAYERS AND GAME TIME by Uche Hello there friends. I am sorry you are going to have to read yet another transfer related article that does not announce the signing of a new player for Arsenal. But something has been bugging me and I will like to share it with you. [...]
Arsenal fans can thank our lucky stars that Arsene Wenger did make the decision to push ahead with the transfer of Petr Cech from Chelsea this summer, as long as the Czech Republic international goes on to prove that he is still one of the very best keepers in the Premier League and the world. [...]
I guess that Arsenal fans will soon find out whether Arsene Wenger really does think that another quality central midfielder is needed for our Premier League title push, or whether the boss feels that he has enough quality and cover in the shape of Francis Coquelin, Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini. All summer there have [.
Arsenal vs Europe by Seetsuma Summer. The Women's World Cup is over, the Copa America is over, and the only matches to watch right now are the Gold Cup, Wimbledon, Baseball, NBA Summer League basketball and reruns of Game of Thrones. Now that it is July 11th and the EPL transfer market has officially been [.
Although Arsenal have three top central defenders in Laurent Koscielny, Gabriel Paulista and Per Mertesacker, the general feeling is that with suspensions and injuries the Gunners could really do with one more talented centre-back. The young Calum Chambers was used early on last season as cover, but his immaturity and propensity to get silly yellow [.
As opposed to my article earlier today, this article is going to be looking forward into Arsenal's future, as opposed to looking backwards at what has already happened around Europe this summer! If we look at Arsenal's summer, we've managed to sign Cech from Chelsea, as well as we've offloaded Podolski, Miyaichi and Diaby (and [.
The Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina thinks that a potential move to Merseyside Premier League team Everton during this summer is a ‘great possibility'. The 26-year-old Colombian national goalkeeper will fall behind new signing Petr Cech for the next season. Following this, there were rumours that he would move out of the club.
Petr Cech officially joined his team mates in training as the former Chelsea goalkeeper started his Arsenal career. Cech joined the training session for the Gunners at London Colney on Friday. The 33-year-old recently completed a £10 million move from cross town rivals Chelsea. After falling down the pecking order to young Belgian stopper Thibaut [.
The Arsenal defender Mathieu Debuchy has high hopes for the upcoming season. He thinks that the arrival of Petr Cech has galvanized the side and the Gunners can win the Premier League next season. Cech joined Arsenal this summer after ending a long 11 year association with Chelsea. After losing his first team place to [.
With some Arsenal fans beginning to get frustrated at what they perceive to be a lack of effort from Arsene Wenger in the summer transfer window, apart from the very encouraging and well received signing of Petr Cech from Chelsea, I have been thinking about how the Frenchman is going about his business.
This up and coming season will be, amazingly enough, the fifth as an Arsenal player for our young England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. And we are all hoping that the exciting and dynamic star can finally show us what he is all about over the course of the campaign and not just in flashes. In a [.
Assuming that Arsene Wenger actually knows what his best Arsenal starting line up is, or at least that he will know after the Barclays Asia trophy and the Emirates cup competitions in pre-season, do you think the Frenchman will try to stick with those 11 players as much as possible? There is certainly something to [.
Arsenal Transfers: Emotion vs Ambition by BVR Emotion (In My Opinion) is what is stopping Arsenal from buying the players who could really make THAT change and lead us to titles. My first case in point is the extension of Mikel Arteta's contract. Yes, Arteta has been a great servant to the club. Immensely committed [.
Mesut Ozil is Arsenal's record signing of all time, and despite his new-found consistency towards the end of last season, he still hasn't convinced all of the fans that he was worth his massive transfer fee, so I am sure there are some that think that we should allow the rumoured interest from Juventus to [.
Some Arsenal fans out there might not be too blown away by the Gunners being linked with a striker that was the top scorer in the French Ligue 1 last season, as the same was true of Olivier Giroud when he signed for Arsenal and even the massive forehead that is Gervinho was banging in [...]
It seems to me that there is an unbalance in the football media. Too many of the writers in the papers and the pundits on the television seem to me to be down on Arsenal; not giving the Gunners enough credit when we deserve it and revelling in our flaws when things go wrong. This [...]
The Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere believes that survival in English Premier League requires ‘absurd' fitness levels. The English international has had his trysts with injuries throughout his short career. Sometimes the supporters wonder if the 23-year-old has spent more time on the medical table than the most of his colleagues (except Abou Diaby and perhaps [.
I get the fact that a lot of Arsenal fans are still not convinced by our France international centre forward Olivier Giroud and think that Thierry Henry was right to say that the Gunners could not win the Premier League with the big man leading the line. But even our club record signing felt the [...
Danny Welbeck is racing against time to be fit in time for the start of the new Premier League season. The English international was excluded by Arsene Wenger from the 27 player Arsenal squad for the pre-season tour of Singapore. Welbeck is suffering from a knee injury that ruled him out of the final weeks [.
I very much doubt that I will get many Arsenal fans arguing with the suggestion that the Chile international star Alexis Sanchez is absolutely vital to the Gunners and our chances of lifting the Premier League trophy next May. His team mates and manager in north London were blown away by his impact during his [.
Cech to help Arsenal win the Premier League? by Sam P The football world in England is still not all that convinced about the new Arsenal and our chances of finally regaining the Premier League title next season, despite the very positive looking transfer of Petr Cech and the way we finished last season.
It was strange to see how little use the Arsenal manager made of the England international Theo Walcott last season. The flying front man was supposedly fit again after his long spell on the sidelines with a cruciate ligament injury some time around the turn of the year. Arsene Wenger did play him a couple [.
The pre-season preparation kicked in full earnest as Arsenal announced the squad for pre-season Asia tour. Arsene Wenger will embark on the pre-season with a strong squad. But, it is not devoid of star absentees. Danny Welbeck, Tomas Rosicky, Alexis Sanchez and David Ospina are missing from the squad.
It just seemed to be the perfect thing for Arsenal to do when the chance of signing Petr Cech popped up, and we are all very very happy with the outcome, but it has now given Arsene Wenger a massive problem. It seems obvious to us that one of David Ospina or Wojciech Szczesny is [...]
I have been banging on for over two years now about how, if Arsenal did not have bad luck then we would have no luck at all. Some of that feeling came from decisions by referees and their assistants and some from the cup draws we wre getting, but mostly it was down to the [...]
Arsenal fans have had to endure more than our fair share of disappointment and stress during various transfer windows in the last 10 years, so I know what it must be like for Liverpool fans and, to a lesser extent, Man City fans this summer with the ongoing transfer saga surrounding the young England international [.
The striker situation at Arsenal has already been the matter of quite a bit of debate, for us fans and for those paid to talk about football and the Premier League. The problem is certainly not of the numerical variety, because even if Joel Campbell joins Lukas Podolski out the Emirates exit door, we would [.
There is a theory, and it is something that the Arsenal manager himself alluded to before the end of last season, that the Gunners did not really need to add any new players during the current summer transfer window. Judging by the way Arsenal performed in the second half of last season, you could say [.
This could all be one big wind up for us fans of Arsenal. We have been primed and prepared for disappointment in almost every transfer window of the last decade, but following some real big name transfers like Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, our pessimism has now been liberally peppered with hope. So the news, [.
Even the Arsenal fans who fully appreciate the silky skills, close control, vision and passing that the Germany international Mesut Ozil brings to the Arsenal party would probably still admit that they would have liked to see the midfielder have more of an influence and impact since his transfer from Real Madrid.
It Will Be Criminal If Wenger Fails to Complete the Job. By Galen For the past 3 years Arsene Wenger has been building and shaping a title winning team. For the first time the Arsenal fans and the players have all started to feel like we are close to something magical. But just like in [...]
Look Arsenal fans, even if this turns out for the worst, it is still nothing like the injury crisis that Arsene Wenger was having to cope with at this stage last year, or the continuous problems that hit the Gunners midway through the previous season that saw our brilliant start to the season ruined.
Even without the latest bad luck injury suffered by the Arsenal and England international star Jack Wilshere last season, it was looking as if he would have a real fight on his hands to get a regular place in the Arsenal starting line up, mainly dues to the excellent form of his main rival for [...]
As the Arsenal team gears up to the pre-season with most of the players reporting to training, the activity on transfer rumour mill is showing no decline. Though these reports can't be taken on face value, they can't be shoved off easily too. Arsenal has been linked with a move to their long standing interest, [.
Mesut Ozil could be given the central midfield role by Arsene Wenger in the upcoming Premier League season according to a report today. Wenger is still trying to find the best way he can fit Ozil in his talent-laden midfield. The German world cup star has been shifted around Arsenal's three attacking midfield slots.
A lot of Arsenal fans are getting impatient waiting for Arsene Wenger to add to the transfer of Petr Cech to Arsenal from Chelsea and bring in some top quality outfirld players to give the Gunners the firepower to challenge Cech's former club for the Premier League title. One of those players is likely to [.
This could be the news we have all been waiting for! I think that Arsenal signing Petr Cech was a pretty good bit of business but according to the agent Muzzi Ozcan we can expect even bigger news in the next few days, and it definitely sounds like a big one! Ozcan is not just [...]
It was the first day back in pre-season training for the Arsenal squad yesterday, at least it was for most of them although there were a few notable absentees like Alexis Sanchez and Petr Cech who have been give a bit more time off because of their international duties this summer. But it still looks [.
The first team Gunners kick-started their efforts to start gearing themselves for the new season ahead. Most of the first team returned to training as the manager Arsene Wenger oversaw the preparations at London Colney. Wenger is looking to sharpen up his squad ahead of the pre-season tour of Singapore.
The Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina could be moving out of the club but still staying in the Premier League for the upcoming season. The Colombia national goal keeper is believed to be looking for a way out after the arrival of Petr Cech put his first team chances at risk. And the latest reports coming [.
There have been many far-fetched Arsenal transfer rumours already this summer,but his one definitely is the most outlandish one so far. The Mail reckons that Arsene Wenger is looking for a marquee signing as usual and that he is interested in signing Man Unted's Angel Di Maria, despite his arrival at Old Trafford just one [.
Why Arsene has a lot to do before he can consider buying any more players. by DW Pre-season training will be in full swing over the next couple of weeks as we build up for another hard fought campaign. While Gooners everywhere will be eagerly awaiting the next big name through the Emirates doors. It [.
The three lions may have suffered another disappointing flop in a major tournament this summer, but that should not take away any of the credit earned by the young Arsenal right back Carl Jenkinson. The 23-year old was just about the only one of Gareth Southgate's England under 21 squad that came away from the [.
The Arsenal and Spain international star midfielder Santi Cazorla has been the subject of a growing anumber of Arsenal transfer rumours over the last few weeks, ever since the reports began about La Liga´s Atletico Madrid being set to sell their own attacking midfielder Arda Turan. The Turkish international had been strongly linked with a [.
The Arsenal squad are due to arrive in Asia next Monday, ready to participate in the Barclays Asian trophy with a game against the Singapore select XI team on the Wednesday followed by another game against either Stoke City of Everton to determine the winner, assuming that the Gunners win our first game of course.
Arsenal skipper Mikel Arteta has penned a new contract with the club and has ended speculation from all quarters. The Spanish midfielder had actually agreed a new one-year deal months ago. But, the protracted delay by the 33-year-old in signing the contract gave rise to suspicions that Arteta would be following the curse of Fabregas, [.
If you did not know the answer to this question, you would never guess which of the current Arsenal squad that our German international star Mesut Ozil picked in his best XI. There are two and it would not take a genius to work out that the brilliant two footed midfield genius that is Santi [...]
I blame Arsene Wenger for all this to be honest. If the Arsenal manager was a bit less like a poker player on his last hand, all in, and with his house and car riding on the result, or if he had actually done a bit more of what the football media had been expecting, [...]
If JustArsenal is not enough proof that the Gunners have fantastic support all around the world, then you only have to listen to Olivier Giroud talking about Arsenal's early morning arrival in Vietnam on a previous pre-season tour of Asia. Giroud will be with the squad when they fly to Singapore on July 13th, and [.
The Arsenal rumours for the last month or so have been adamant that when Petr Cech takes over as Number One at Arsenal, David Ospina will be moving on to pastures new. Meanwhile it has been assumed that Tomas Rosicky will be staying to keep his mate Cech company after Arsene Wenger exercised a one [.
Remember Aliko Dangote? The Nigerian billionaire recently was in the news for declaring his interest in buying Arsenal. He reveals that buying the club will help raise the profile of his home country Nigeria. He was criticized for not investing in the domestic league and just looking for greener pastures abroad.
I have a feeling that there will be a lot of Arsenal fans out there; as well as a much bigger percentage of the football media, who I think have got an unbalanced dislike of the Gunners and a strange wish to see Arsene Wenger and his players fail, that will see the signs of [...]
Pedro anyone? Enjoy the silence of the window. by KM Good day to all of you fine Gunners round the globe. Do you miss football in the 2 months of the transfer barbeque, where stories get fried and go sour in a matter of days? Well I do. Not a lot of football, bar a [...]
A keeper can understand what goes on with another keeper! Well, it may not be exactly true but former Arsenal goal keeper Jens Lehmann believes that the new signing Petr Cech has to get over his emotional bond with Chelsea if he wants to succeed at Arsenal. The German former national keeper went on to [.
Hector Bellerin is one of the success stories for Arsenal last season. And the young defender will be looking to build on it as he prepares for the new Premier League season. The pre-season training for the new season will start at London Colney on Monday and will see most of the team members gathering.
I do not mind the former Arsenal and Germany keeper Jens Lehmann having his say on the club by any means. The 45-year old did play 200 games for Arsenal and was a part of that historic invincibles season when we last lifted the Premier League trophy. I just wonder whether he is right to [...]
No way Arsenal will sell Cazorla to Atletico by DN I know that Arsene Wenger still has to balance the books at Arsenal and so as long as the current ownership stays the same, the Frenchman is never going to have the sort of resources available to his main rivals like Mourinho, van Gaal and [...]
Arsene Wenger has repeatedly stated that he will only buy players that could seriously improve the Arsenal team and at least 80% of the fans believe that he should be only looking for Defensive midfielders and World-Class strikers but what if a super attacking midfielder should become available? Wenger is well-known for stacking his midfield [.
Many of the readers of JustArsenal think that the Barcelona winger Pedro Rodriguez could be perfect for Arsenal, especially if Theo Walcott is converted into a centre-forward next season, but since the 27 year-old signed a new contract recently with a buy-out clause of £110m, we didn't think there was much chance of him moving [.
As usual the transfer window is very frustrating for Arsenal fans, with very little in the way of solid information forthcoming from the Gunners camp. Oh to be a Liverpool fan, with nine signings already, including Benteke, who I wouldn't have minded at Arsenal.... but I digress. So anyway I found this excellent quote from [.
Arsenal messed up with Podolski by DN You will not find too many Arsenal fans out there who have taken the news that the Germany international Lukas Podolski has completed his transfer to the Turkish champions Galatasaray with anything more than a shrug of the shoulders. It is a sad end to the Arsenal career [.
It seems as though Arsenal fans and everyone connected with the Gunners are not the only people who want to see us lift the Premier League trophy. I am not talking about the football media either, as there are not too many of them out there rooting for Arsenal and plenty, like the doughnut Adrian [..
If this latest addition to the Arsenal transfer rumours of the summer is true then I will be doing a little dance of victory and excitement in my pants. I really hope that it is true, even if the Metro report´s claim that Arsenal might complete the deal for what sounds like a ridiculously cheap [...
Arsene Wenger no longer has to sell one or more of the better players in the Arsenal squad every summer in order to balance the books. The finances are a lot healthier for the Frenchman now his continued feat of getting the Gunners into the Champions League has helped the club to pay off the [...]
Those of us of the Arsenal persuasion will always say that David Seaman was the best keeper to play for the England national team, but others will disagree and a lot of those will say that the former Nottingham Forest star Peter Shilton was the Three Lions' best ever, and he did amazingly win 50 [...
The very highly rated Barcelona striker Pedro Rodriguez is being linked with Arsenal as the club look to replace Lukas Podolski. The latest reports coming out of Spain say that the the Gunners made an initial contact with his representatives. The report goes on to add that the chances of striking a deal for this [.
One of the biggest things that Arsenal fans learned from the Copa America final last night, when Chile took Argentina to extra time and then a penalty shoot out that they won, was how cool our striker Alexis Sanchez is under pressure. Maybe to say we learned it is wrong, because the 26-year old has [.
It remains to be seen which of the Arsenal players will be the regular first team starter in the role of right back next season, with Arsene Wenger having no shortage of options. Mathieu Debuchy was the player that we expected to fill the boots of Bacary Sagna and he still might but last season [...]
Samir Nasri refuted any claims that he asked for a return to Arsenal. There were reports going around that the French attacking midfielder approached his former Arsenal boss with a view to get back to the Emirates stadium. The report claimed that the former Gunner is now unsettled at Manchester City and spoke to Arsene [.
Community Shield Chelsea v Arsenal by JMT On the 2nd of August Arsenal will play what I consider to be one of the most important matches of the new season. Of course, this is not a Premier League game but rather the Community Shield that I am referring to. There is a myriad of [...]
It will make no difference to Arsenal, at least in terms of when Arsene Wenger has our fantastic forward Alexis Sanchez back on the training ground, which of the two south American teams emerges triumphant from the Copa America final tonight. The boss has already told us that he is going to make sure that [.
He may not be the same sort of player as the Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez, but he was just as effective in his own way when the two were fighting for a place in the Barcelona team. Pedro Rodriguez spent three years in the same squad as the Chilean and they both had to play [...]
Abou Diaby was released by Arsenal but the midfielder is free to train with the club Diaby was officially released by Arsenal Football club on Wednesday. But, Wenger is willing to let him use the London Colney training base to build fitness. Some analysts see this as a slight chance for the injury plagued midfielder [.
What is Arsenal's best XI? by Sam P There is not much longer for the Arsenal fans to wait, and how glad are we all about that? In less than two weeks, the Gunners will run out for the first game of pre-season against a Singapore select XI in their national stadium, so I expect [...]
I wrote an article the other day with the suggestion that the transfer of Petr Cech to Arsenal will bring us a lot more than just ability and experience to our last line of defence. My theory was that Cech's experience of winning the Premier League title with Chelsea, especially that first time after a [.
A look at the latest Arsenal transfer rumours involve a possible bid for Santi Cazorla from Atletico Madrid, interest in Baba Rahman and the departure of Lukas Podolski. First to the big news; this may actually irk many supporters. The Spanish giants Atletico Madrid are reported to be mulling over a bid for Santi Cazorla.
Lukas Podolski is on the brink of making a permanent switch to Galatasaray. Latest reports indicated that the Turkish club is confident of sealing the transfer. If they are successful to do so, it would be after three unsuccessful attempts from the Turkish giants. Galatasaray tried to sign him in 2012 from the German club [.
About this time tomorrow I expect every Arsenal fan in the world, or those that are awake at least, to be crossing their fingers and toes in the hope that the Arsenal Player of the Year Alexis Sanchez comes through the Copa America final without picking up an injury or even a little knock. Even [...]
Okay Arsenal fans, I may be jumping the gun here, because the draw for the Champions League group stage games has not been made yet. So there is still a chance that the Gunners get some luck and are handed a decent tie for matchday one, preferably on our home turf of the Emirates stadium. [...]
Although there were a few Arsenal transfer rumours this season suggesting that our brilliant young Spanish right back Hector Bellerin could have his head turned by the transfer interest in him from his boyhood club Barcelona, where he spent the first eight years of his youth career in their famous academy at La Masia.
A lot of people in the football world believe that the transfer of Petr Cech from Chelsea will give Arsenal a much btter chance of finally regaining the Premier League title. And it appears that our new Number One (squad number to be confirmed..) is confident that the Gunners have got the players to do [.
So it looks like the Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta has been handed a one year extension to his contract with the Gunners, despite all the injury and fitness problems last season restricting the Spaniard to just 12 appearances in all competitions, but if he recovered will he be one of the LANS (Like a new [.
Continuing my analysis of the current Arsenal squad by JA MIDFIELD This is where we are blessed with a lot in terms of numbers, potential and quality. Due to the sheer numbers in the middle, breaking down categories will be a little hectic, so we'll review one by one player looking at their strengths and [.

Aston Villa and Netherlands defender Ron Vlaar becomes a free agent today. What would this mean?
