Before Arsenal played host to Chelsea last weekend in a match that none of us want to remember for long, the interim boss of the blues Guus Hiddink suggested that Arsene Wenger and his very long spell as the manager of a top flight club like the Gunners could soon be looked on as a [...]
When Alexis Sanchez limped off the pitch as Arsenal were held to a draw away to Norwich City at the end of November, a lot of Arsenal fans were left fearing for what might happen to our season without the Chile international. But as the Gunners managed a very good run of results in December [...]
Arsenal were at times very close to our brilliant best against a hard working, determined and in form Burnley side. Despite Arsene Wenger making a whole host of changes to the Gunners starting line up, he was not taking this FA cup fourth round tie lightly and with a bit of luck we would have [...]
Arsenal really need a strong performance and a good result against Burnley in the FA cup 4th round clash at the Emirates Stadium today. The last thing we need is another game although if we are behind with not long left we would all take a replay. But hopefully that can be avoided and the [...]
Despite the fact that the Arsenal injury list is now down to just two players in Santi Cazorla and Jack Wilshere, the boss explained that some of the players that are back in training and available to play again are not quite fully ready as yet. Arsene Wenger will definitely not be using the England [.
The Arsenal and Germany international star Mesut Ozil is currently way ahead of the chasing pack when it comes to which player will provide the most Premier League assists this season. In fact the German attacking midfielder is on course to break the long standing EPL record of 20 set by our very own Thierry [.
There have been thousands of words of criticism, from pundits and Arsenal fans alike, blaming last weekend's defeat to Chelsea on Per Mertesacker for getting himself sent off in the 20th minute, but Arsene Wenger has come out in defence of the Big Flippin German saying that he has also been Arsenal saviour in the [.
Arsenal fans must beware of Man United's demise by JH I think if you asked every Arsenal fan in the world, to name one club that has brought them the most joy in the last 3 years, without picking Arsenal, I would suggest nearly everyone would go for Manchester United. Since the serial title winner [.
Arsene Wenger has had a couple of weeks to assess Arsenal's newest signing Mohamed Elneny, and it looks like he will giving the Egyptian his debut against Burnley this afternoon. Francis Coquelin will also be back in the squad and we are likely to see both of them in action today. It seems that Wenger [.
I might be wrong but I think we are going to see a very strong Arsenal side in the FA cup today and I am also expecting them to put on a strong show to give Burnley a proper taste of what the Gunners can do. Arsene Wenger certainly seems to be determined to see [...]
There will still be plenty of Arsenal transfer rumours in the football media over the next few days but unless Arsene Wenger has a massive change of heart or he was telling fibs in his press conference today, the only new players we can expect to see at Arsenal are the two young Nigerian prospects. [.
Arsene Wenger has always used domestic cup games to rotate his squad and give some valuable game time to some of the Arsenal fringe players and the young Gunners coming through the academy. And with the Gunners coming off a three game winless streak and facing a tough match against a Southampton side that has [.
With just a few short days left of the winter transfer window to go for Arsenal and our Premier League rivals to add any new players that we need to get us through to the end of the current season, we still have not seen our only transfer purchase Mohamed Elneny play. But as the [...]
While Arsenal fans still have just the Egypt international central midfielder Mohamed Elneny to celebrate, and he is not exactly a household name, we are hoping that the next few days sees Arsene Wenger do a bit more business before the winter transfer window slams shut. One player we will not be welcoming to Arsenal, [.
We all know the Gunners are on a bad run of form in the Premier League, having gone three games without a win, but do not be fooled by this run as they have actually played very well against traditionally difficult opponents, and they will now be all set to get back to winning ways [...]
Arsenal fans are well used to Arsene Wenger pulling a fast one on us during a transfer window. Usually the Frenchman keeps us hoping and says he is looking for players before not making any transfers and saying that he just couldn't find any. This time though, the boss has been saying that he is [...
Tomorrow, Arsenal welcome Burnley to the Emirates looking for our 14th win in a row in the FA Cup, as we aim for an historic hat-trick of trophies in the competition. The Gunners, with 12 wins, are the record holders and are hoping to increase our lead at Wembley in May, but which moments would [...]
Mikel Arteta is Arsenal's nominal captain at the moment, with Per Mertesacker usually wearing the armband during games, although last week he handed it over to Theo Walcott as recognition of the England striker's ten years at the club. The BFG will not be sporting it again tomorrow (who will?), as he is banned, but [.
Arsenal fans were handed some great news by Arsene Wenger yesterday, as he revealed the latest injury news on the Arsenal website and the best part of that was that our French midfield warrior Francis Coquelin is available to play again after being in full training for a couple of weeks. According to the Evening [.
The Arsenal and England right back Carl Jenkinson may not have been playing for the Gunners this season. In fact he has spent the last 18 months across London with our Premier League rivals West Ham. But he has been with Arsenal since the summer of 2011 and so has spent a lot of time [...]
Arsenal are one of a number of clubs that have been linked with this Spanish La Liga striker in this season's transfer rumours. However it was looking as though we would be one of the clubs to miss out on the Celta Vigo and Spain international star Nolito. The player himself has made no secret [...]
I am sensing quite a bit of nerves and pessimism around Arsenal fans at the moment. After just two points from the last three Premier League games and with an FA cup 4th round to play just days before the next EPL game against a Southampton side with no game this weekend and that inflicted [...]
While I would love for Arsenal to get some good luck in the FA cup this weekend and the Premier League match against Southampton a few days later, I would happily settle for the absence of any bad luck for the Gunners. However I do believe that Arsenal will need to have some good luck [...]
We all know that Arsenal are desperate to get back to winning ways in the League against Southampton next Tuesday after having three winless games in a row, but first of all we have an equally important Fa Cup match to negotiate first against Burnley on Saturday afternoon. Wengwr always makes some changes for Cup [.
Let's Stop Kicking Arsene Wenger by CS I'm not an AKB or AOB Cheerleader, and I believe all genuine Arsenal fans want the best for the Club. Everyone is entitled to their opinions, and everyone's right to hold an opinion should be respected by everyone else, even if you disagree with it. Let's stop attacking [.
There have been many Arsenal transfer rumours this month saying that Matthieu Debuchy is set to leave the club, with the player making it quite clear that he is desperate to get some first team football to try and regain his place in the France national team ahead of this summers Euro2016 in Paris. Even [.
This is definitely the most interesting Arsenal transfer rumour this month, as sources in the Ukraine are reporting that the Gunners have already agreed to pay Dynamo Kiev £23million for their brilliant international winger Andriy Yarmolenko. The big versatile Ukrainian has spent his whole career at Kiev and now he has reached his prime at [.
Arsenal have not had too many really bad days to endure this season, especially if you consider that the double defeat by a struggling Chelsea side saw us get no luck whatsoever and everything go right for them. But the biggest defeat of the season was also possibly our worst performance, away to Southampton on [.
When Alexis Sanchez joined Arsenal at the beginning of last season he brought his incredible pace, energy and enthusiasm with him, and he practically carried us through the first couple of injury-filled months before reinforcements came off the treatment table. This season he came back to us tired from the South America and was lacking [.
The 20 year-old Chuba Akpom was a prolific striker for Arsenal in the youth levels before Arsene Wenger decided to promote him to the Gunners first team towards the end of last season. Le Prof announced in this pre-season that Akpom would not be going out on loan but when the Frenchman changed his mind [.
It Must have been a Perfect Sunday for the Anti Arsenal Bandwagon By Tinashe Shamuyashe As an Arsenal fan, every time we drop points, I have to endure the disappointment of things not going our way, and a barrage of negativity from the media, pundits, and some ungracious Arsenal fans (referred throughout this article as [.
As usual when Arsenal sign anyone it always takes ten times longer than any other club, but the delay in getting the talented Nigerian Kelechi Nwakali over to the Emirates in not the club's fault this time around. In an interview with Nwakali's brother, Allwell, on the Nigerian sports site, Complete Sports, his brother said.
I am fairly sure that a large percentage of Arsenal fans are finding it hard to get enthused about the defence of the FA cup trophy, because two points from the last three Premier League games has left the Gunners down in third place and our challenge for the Premier League title looking a lot [...]
THE LONG VIEW: FOOTBALL FANS ARE NOT FOOTBALL EXPERTS by Uche As the aftermath of our loss to Chelsea continues to unfold, what began as a sympathetic reaction to fan's frustration has gradually turned into disgust. I don't know how else to be diplomatic about this but this is ridiculous. We are gradually becoming the [.
Arsenal need to bounce back against Southampton by RJ It is difficult for me to hide my disappointment after yet another defeat against Chelsea who seemingly have our number. For a team that have put themselves in a wonderful position to challenge for the Premier League, it was yet another performance that makes me wonder [.
Everyone seems to be saying that this is the year for Arsenal. And if the Gunners do not win it this time then we will have blown the best chance for years and might not get another for some time. But hold on a minute here, why us? Why is it not a great chance [...]
There are many Arsenal fans that are not impressed with Olivier Giroud, despite being one of the highest goalscorers in the League, but do they even take into account the rest of the qualities he brings to the team. His team-mates, at least, rate him highly, and appreciate the work he does in defence as [.
It is up to Arsenal to make the most of any slip ups by our Premier League rivals of course, and after slipping back into third place, even though we are only behind Man City on goal difference, means that we will need to do better than them and Leicester City for the rest of [...]
With no midweek game for the Gunners to have to deal with this week, the inquest goes on among the Arsenal faithful about the recent run of disappointing results. Per Mertesacker has of course taken a big share of the stick, as has the decision by Arsene Wenger to take off Olivier Giroud, the headless [.
Despite already signing one central midfielder in the January transfer window, the options for Arsenal in the middle of the pitch were exposed again last weekend as the Frenchman Mathieu Flamini had another one of his off days. He made mistakes defensively and lost his discipline on a number of occasions, which he would have [.
I know that Arsene Wenger has been trying to keep the Arsenal defence as solid and secure as possible and the fact that the Frenchman has been able to name the same back four in front of Petr Cech in goal for most of the season has definitely been a big help to the Gunners' [...]
The new Arsenal number one Petr Cech was clearly trying to lift his dejected team mates after the final whistle blew on the Premier League match against Chelsea on Sunday. That sort of ability to look for any positives and to move on from a disappointment is a very important part of what the Czech [.
5 things we learned as Arsenal were deservedly beaten by Chelsea Our midfield needs a fix What a most terrible performance I've ever seen from an Arsenal midfield. No fighting spirit. They left our defence so open and often dispossessed. It was a total liability yesterday. We still have the very same problems [.
My Arsenal revamp by Dboy Hi Gunners, please allow me for a few minutes. I'm thinking of a complete revamp in the Arsenal team. If I would have it my way, I would certainly get rid of some underperformers and some weary legs in the team. My OUT list would be as follow: 1.Debuchy [...]
Post-boxing day analysis of Arsenal's performances by KM Hello again. So after barely sleeping through a simply unacceptable defeat to a bad Chelsea side, I decided to take a look at what we've done after Christmas so far. Our results feature a hammering at Southampton followed by two wins, two draws and a defeat.
Although Arsenal had little chance of beating Chelsea after the first 23 minutes when we were a goal down plus a man down, the team did try hard to break through and get an equalizer. But the deficencies in midfield were clear for all to see. That is why it is great news today that [...]
Well it has all gone a bit pear shaped for the Arsenal in recent weeks, as we followed up a fairly fantastic festive period of seven wins from eight games in all competitions with a three game winless streak in the Premier League which culminated in the pretty disastrous London derby defeat by Chelsea.
I sometimes think that we Arsenal fans are harder on Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players and their failings than anyone else is, probably because we are so desperate from them to do well and to get everything right both on and off the pitch. We certainly feel the defeat of a defeat like yesterday's [.
This Wenger hatred is getting boring by SP Every time Arsenal lose a game (which EVERY TEAM does at least five times a year, but usually a lot more!), we get all the Wenger haters crawling out of the woodwork calling for his head. I dread to think how they would act if they supported [...]
MOVING FORWARD by Uche I have a problem. I have an idea for this article and it is supposed to be about finding the positives and moving on after Arsenal's seasonal Chelsea catastrophe. So as you can imagine, this piece should be positive and uplifting but I don't know if I can pull it off. [...]
Well the month of January was just about as bad for Arsenal as we feared and a lot worse than I for one expected. It could have been worse for Arsenal though, because at least our rivals dropped some points as well and that leaves things very tight at the top. Because Man City were [...]
It was business as usual when Chelsea came to the Emirates yesterday as our local rivals yet again took the points and stopped Arsenal from scoring. We were outdone as soon as the 20th minute when we had to struggle from a man down and a goal down, but the team fought like lions and [...]
Everyone is stressing because Arsenal have dropped to three points below Leicester, but it is hardly the end of the world with still another 45 points to play for before the end of the season, and I would point out that we are set to face Leicester at the Emirates very shortly? So losing one [...]
This is what Arsene gives you by KM Well it's hard to hide my disappointment. But it's not something that really surprises me. I could smell trouble. We started poorly and on the nth time Mertesacker was exposed, he did the stupidest thing ever. He tripped Costa. Take a moment here for a player that [.
I know that the Arsenal and Chile forward Alexis Sanchez only played for the final half an hour of the disappointing Premier League defeat to Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium yesterday, and he did not manage to get the goal we were so desperate for, but his introduction did produce the best period of the [.
So after two draws in a row for Arsenal, we failed to get that elusive win over Chelsea that would have seen Arsenal come through a tough month of fixtures on top of the Premier League. And what is worse, we even failed to get the point that would have taken us back above Man [...]
It is always easy to look back with the benefit of hindsight to see where a game went wrong for Arsenal and that is just what us Gooners will be doing over the next couple of days. Obviously it is not hard to point to the sending off of our German centre back as a [...]
Well that article I wrote about Arsenal being owed some luck against Chelsea today after the shocking decisions made by referee Mike Dean at Stamford Bridge did not exactly come true did it? In a way you have to accept that Per Mertesacker's awful attempt at a last ditch tackle on Diego Costa was a [.
I am guessing that Arsene Wenger is still being ultra cautious with the Arsenal and Chile international forward, because if Alexis Sanchez is fit enough to make the Arsenal bench today for the visit of Chelsea, then I would assume that he is match fit and should have no problem playing 90 minutes. But if [.
Arsenal fans are not the type to get too excited about a January transfer window. We have good reason too. Just whisper the name of Kim Kallstrom and watch the pain in the eyes of any Gooner that happens to be close by. Arsene Wenger has signed a player at least, and in the area [...]
It has been almost 12 years since Arsene Wenger led Arsenal to our last Premier League title, which was almost unthinkable back then when Thierry Henry and all managed to complete the season without a single defeat in the league. A lot has happened since then, of course, but just the length of time involved [.
As always, Arsenal have many promising youngsters coming through from our expensively assembled academy and the latest to be given a chance to impress in the first team is Alex Iwobi, who replaced Theo Walcott for the last 20 minutes of the 0-0 draw against Stoke. The young Nigerian caught Wenger's eye when he scored [.
It is always strange that some teams are considered to be bogey teams, but there is no other word to describe Chelsea's superiority over Arsenal this century. It is five years since the Gunners beat our London rivals and amazingly we haven't scored a goal in the last five League meetings, although three of the [.
All Arsenal fans are hoping to see our superstar striker Alexis Sanchez back in the squad to face Chelsea today, and it is looking likely even if he only comes on from the bench. There have been a few dodgy Arsenal rumours saying that the Chilean may be open to moving on in the near [...]
There have been enough articles about the effect that Petr Cech has had on the Arsenal team since his arrival from Chelsea, and he could be the main reason that the Gunners are favourites to beat his old team this afternoon. But people can't stop talking about him, and the latest praise comes from our [.
To be perfectly honest, Arsenal have not had too great a time of it in recent years when we have come up against our Premier League and London rivals Chelsea. We all know the shocking stats about the rival managers Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho but the problems go deeper than that. There are many [.
Mohamed Elneny may just have arrived at Arsenal, but the lad has very high ambitions and is obviously aiming for the very top, ans where better to reach those heights than at Arsenal? He has won the Swiss League title for the last three years and is obviously aiming to carry on that record this [...]
One of the latest Arsenal transfer rumours has the club linked with the young Leicester City full back Ben Chilwell and after Arsene Wenger swooped this month to relieve them of their very successful head of technical scouting Ben Wrigglesworth, the east Midlands club must be wondering what they have done to make us pick [.
The race to the finishing tape for the Premier League title is really heating up now and although there is a long way to go for Arsenal, it is really important that we keep our noses in front after the round of games this weekend. In fact, Laurent Koscielny reckons that every single home game [...]
Czech keeper is proving the difference between Arsenal's title challenge and Chelsea's struggles by RC On Sunday, Arsenal's Petr Cech faces his former side Chelsea for the third time this term after having fallen out of favour with them last season. Did Chelsea do the right thing to let him go or should they have [.
I could be wrong, of course, and the Arsenal starting line up to face Chelsea tomorrow could have the name of Mohamed Elneny in it instead of the French midfielder Mathieu Flamini. But I have a feeling that Arsene Wenger is thinking along slightly different lines. For one thing, the boss has been pretty pleased [.
Arsenal simply have to beat Chelsea on Sunday by KM Hello everybody. What's up? The Premier league is coming back with a bang this week and we have another one of those games that we have a psychological problem with Chelsea. At home or away, the Blues are one of our worst opponents. Ever [...]
I have seen quite a few football pundits this season who have included both of the first choice Arsenal full backs Nacho Monreal and Hector Bellerin in their Premier League team of the season, and I am certainly not going to argue with them. The Spanish duo are almost certain to start again against Chelsea [.
Knowing Arsene Wenger and the faith that he clearly has in the Arsenal centre back Per Mertesacker, along with the very well reasoned idea that sticking with the same back four and keeper as much as possible helps the defensive solidity of your team, the chances are that our Brazilian centre back Gabriel is not [.
Good news Arsenal fans! Premier League referee Mike Dean will be nowhere near the Emirates Stadium pitch when Arsenal take on Chelsea in the crucial match on Sunday. So we can reasonably expect to see the Brazilian born Spanish international striker Diego Costa head for an early bath if he decides to try another assault [.
A lot of Arsenal fans (well certainly on JustArsenal) seem to lurch from ecstasy to misery depending on our latest result, but the fact is that we win some games and we lose or draw other games. It's not rocket science but the aim is to lose or draw less than your opponents over the [...]
Arsenal have had two tough away games at Stoke and Liverpool where we have traditionally struggled to gain points, but we have come away with two hard-earned points. We may be happy with that return (or not!) but now we must aim to get back to winning ways back at the Emirates against another bogey [.
Theo Walcott: Arsenal Legend? by JH Okay, perhaps yesterday should have been the day to write this, but today marks 10 years and a day since a babyfaced 16 year old Theo Walcott joined Arsenal for an upfront fee of £5 million, with add-ons to follow. 10 years and a day later, I have decided [...]
Mohamed Elneny was an unknown entity when he arrived at Arsenal last week after his long drawn out transfer from Basle, and I for one expected the Egyptian international to take time to settle and get to know his surroundings and his team-mates, but it looks like he has put his head down and got [...
Ranking Arsenal's midfielders.... by Briantole Our midfield is regarded as our most precious jewel with strengths in both depth and quality. It is very worthy of being called the best in the Premier League but let's see how they rank amongst each other when they are all available. We will deal with the basics among [.
I am not sure if this rumour is even believable considering that Jack Wilshere has hardly played for Arsenal in the last two seasons, but knowing Arsene Wenger's fetish for keeping all his English players in the squad it wouldn't really surprise me... So apparently Jack is going to be with us to the end [.
So the big game against Chelsea approaches, and I think Arsenal have more reason to be confident of a first win over Chelsea for some time, especially now that Arsene Wenger is feeling confident that both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez will be on the pitch. Wenger said yesterday: "Compared to last week we have [.
It is now exactly two weeks since Arsenal lost our midfield warrior Francis Coquelin to a knee injury in the Premier League match away to West Brom. Many of us thought that any realistic chances of us winning the title left the Hawthorns pitch with the combative Frenchman, so the news that he is back [.
Keep or sell Wojciech Szczesny by PR Our Polish keeper Wojciech Szczesny has been at Arsenal for ten years since becoming a youth player at the age of 16. He was given a professional contract three years later and made his League Cup debut on the 22nd September 2009, keeping a clean sheet in [...]
Every Arsenal fan on the planet (I am not sure if there are any in space but them too) will be hoping that our Chilean star striker Alexis Sanchez comes through the next two days of training and proves to Arsene Wenger that there is no risk in starting him at the Emirates Stadium on [...]
Arsenal fans heard many times that Arsene Wenger is not a big fan of the January transfer window but at the same time it is there so he might as well make use of it. Having signed just one, not very well heard of, player in Mohamed Elneny to strengthen the injury hit central midfield [...]
No-one's coming! by DN Just like all long-suffering Gooners, I am used to being extremely disappointed when the transfer window closes, but I have to admit that I really believed that Arsene Wenger would be spending big this January. With the amount of long term injuries we have right now (and don't even try to [.
From what a lot of so-called football experts have been saying about this Arsenal star, even this season when he has arguably been better than he was for Real Madrid and Werder Bremen and in the form of his life, you could be forgiven for thinking that Mesut Ozil was struggling to live up to [...]
While Arsenal fans are expecting Arsene Wenger to have the major double boost of getting our Chile international striker Alexis Sanchez and our German international number 10 Mesut Ozil back from their respective fitness for the Premier League game this weekend against Chelsea, the visitors are likely to be boosted by the return of their [.
The biggest gripe of Arsenal fans that go to the Emirates for every game for the last god-knows-how-many years is that they have been paying the highest prices in the world, but have not been rewarded by the ambition of the club on the pitch. The taunts about Arsene Wenger's sole ambition being to make [.
Okay this is a subject that is much discussed amongst Arsenal fans, especially was Arsene Wenger usually favours buying young or cheap players that are expected to improve as they mature. I have found this calculator from the CIES Football Observatory which calculates each player's worth based on an econometric model used to analyse over [.
It is being reported that, even though Arsenal are ready to fork out the hefty transfer fee demanded by this transfer target's club, and that the player himself and representatives from Borussia Monchengladbach are making the right noises about accepting the offer of a move to the Premier League, the deal to make Granit Xhaka [.
There has been a lot of media attention on the Arsenal and England international star Theo Walcott, especially today because it marks the 10th anniversary of his transfer from Southampton as a fresh faced teenager. And although some Arsenal fans and football experts will say that Walcott has not lived up to his potential, the [.
Two draws on the bounce have not exactly inflicted a big dent in the title hopes of Arsenal but they have allowed the chasing pack to catch up and that sees the Gunners now just one point ahead of Manchester City and only ahead of Leicester City on goal difference in the Premier League table. [...]
We all know that Arsenal are very proud of being a well run club that does not live beyond our means. At the same time the debt repayment brought about by the building of the Emirates Stadium to replace Highbury is not longer holding Arsene Wenger back financially and there is a sizable sum sitting [.
Hopefully this one Arsenal transfer will lead on to a few more before the January transfer window closes in less than two weeks. That does seem to be the whole point of the Gunners raiding our Premier League rivals Leicester City in the first place. The man that will soon be joining Arsene Wenger and [.
It looks like the Arsenal transfer rumours hitting the football media this week about the Borussia Monchengladbach and Switzerland international midfield star Granit Xhaka may well have been based on fact rather than the speculative guesswork we see so often during a transfer window. The player himself has been talking about a possible move to [.
In the week after one of the greatest players ever to grace the pitch for Arsenal Football Club lost one of his records in English football, and to a player from the old enemy Manchester United to boot, it is good to hear that another Arsenal star is on target to equal the record of [...]
Arsenal's superb midfielder Mesut Ozil was looked at with amusement last year when he said that his aim was to win the Ballon D'or one day, especially as he had had a lacksadaisical season with the Gunners and was hardly considered to even be our best player. But when the new campaign began he hit [.
HOW TO WIN A TITLE WITH A TEAM OF CROCKS by KM EVERY single team in the EPL this season has had shocking results. In fact, there is no longer such a thing as a shocking result. Maybe when Pep comes to City, he will win every game. But until then, the EPL will remain [...]
Arsenal may have signed a bit of an unknown entity in Mohamed Elneny, but we know that with the contract extension given to Nacho Monreal we are getting a proven world class player of the first degree. The Spaniard admitted that it was difficult when he first arrived without speaking any English, but he has [.
There have been Arsenal transfer rumours for the last two years about the Spanish left back Nacho Monreal making a possible return to his home country with a number of La Liga clubs linked. But earlier this month the reports began to filter through that Monreal was close to agreeing a new contract to stay [.
I am sure that there are a couple of current Arsenal fringe players that would be happy to step into the role that looks like it will be vacated by the France international right back Mathieu Debuchy at some point during the current January transfer window, but former Gunner Emmanuel Eboue is hoping that his [.
The former Arsenal and England forward Alan Smith was clearly not as disappointed as some Gooners with the away point against a difficult and in form Stoke City side at the weekend, especially as the Gunners were without two of our best attacking players in Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil. In fact Smudger, who scored [.
What do Arsenal need to win the Premier League? by CR Only a fool would claim that Arsenal are not involved in a genuine title fight this season. It's only January but we actually look as though we can put all of our demons behind us and lift the Premier League title in May. There [...]
With Arsenal having a strong season in the Premier League you would normally have expected our next game against Chelsea at the Emirates stadium to have been a potentially pivotal game in the destination of the coveted EPL title. But there is only one of the clubs with any chance of becoming champions of England [.
Some naysayers could put forward the view that Arsenal lost two points in the draw at Stoke, but Petr Cech is the type of player whose glass is always half-full and he has persuaded the other Gunners that it is a point gained in our race for the title. Let's allow Theo Walcott to explain [...]
Arsenal have already signed a midfielder of course but that is the area of the pitch that has been the hardest hit by our injury problems, and so we are still being linked with various other players for those positions. One of those has been the Swiss international Granit Xhaka who is currently starring for [.
Arsenal's newest addition, Mohamed Elneny, has given his first interview to the official Arsenal website, and he has revealed that his mother and father brought him up from birth to be a top footballer. This is how he described his upbringing. "My father is a football coach back home in Egypt in my town, Almahalah," [.
I suppose you could feel a little bit sorry for those members of the football media and TV pundits that have thrived on their anti-Arsenal comments in recent years, because they have had a pretty thin diet to feed on this season as Arsene Wenger has got the Gunners playing the best football in the [.
The Arsenal injury situation has been the subject of much discussion in recent years and just yesterday the Gunners were left counting the cost as we badly missed the attacking ability of key players like Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez, Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky and Santi Cazorla. Any one of those Arsenal stars might have been [.
It is impossible to judge beyond a shadow of a doubt how many extra Premier League points Arsenal have earned with the former Chelsea keeper Petr Cech between the posts but after another stunning performance from the 33-year old stopped Stoke City taking all the points at the Britannia Stadium yesterday it is clear that [.
Because of a minor injury problem to his foot, Arsenal had to face the tough trip to the Britannia Stadium to take on Stoke City without our main man and king of assists Mesut Ozil. And with Arsenal also missing the usual suspects to replace the German international, with Tomas Rosicky, Santi Cazorla and Jack [.
Yet another clean sheet for Arsenal away to Stoke City kept up our very impressive defensive record in the Premier League this season and extended the record breaking figures of our new number one. Quite rightly a lot of the credit for this is going to Petr Cech, not just for his shot stopping ability [.
As usual Arsenal had a tough battle at the Britannia Stadium, and Stoke raised their game and fought for ever ball for the whole 90 minutes. Mark Hughes always has his teams prepared to die for the cause and last night was no exception. Even Arsene Wenger praised our opponents after the game, but also [.
The Gunners had to battle hard for a point at Stoke City last night, and the 0-0 draw was a fair result after great performances by Jack Butland and Arsenal's very own Petr Cech. There are very few fans that would not have chosen Cech as their man of the match, but the great man [...]
Still top we need not panic just yet. by Koss the Boss It's been a bit of a hard time for the club at the moment with the injuries we have and the amount of games being played throughout the Xmas/New year period. Our last two results or performances have not been up [...]
You cannot really argue with the TV pundits' picking of the Arsenal keeper Petr Cech as the man of the match from our no score draw away to Stoke City. After all, the Gunners would have got nothing from the game if it wasn't for him, but there were also some good performances from the [...]
Yes it is easy to feel sorry for Matthieu Debuchy as he got injured soon after joining Arsenal from Newcastle, but since his return he has done himself no favours at all. He seems to think he has a God-given right to be in the starting XI and was moaning at Arsene Wenger even before [...]
Fair point. Petr Cech has already rescued more points than our past 4 keepers by KM Hello fellow Gooners. How are you? I actually enjoyed the point at Stoke. Because you know what a point at Stoke is better than none. I saw a statistics saying that the Champions in previous years have more often [...
It was fairly obvious that Arsenal were not at our brilliant best in the Premier League match away to Stoke City today, even though we did have a few decent chances to score the goal that would have meant all three points coming back to north London from the Potteries. But even though there will [...
It took a while for this game to get going, with Arsenal and Stoke both matching each other and cancelling each other out in the first half. That was much better than the same fixture last season when the Gunners were completely blown away be the home side in the first half an hour. It [...]
Arsenal are in the Potteries today hoping to get a rare away win over Arsene Wenger's serial tormentors Stoke City. Even a point will be enough to take the Gunners back to the top of the table but obviously a win will make our Premier League title challenge look that much stronger. So in an [...]
Mohamed Elneny: New Sheriff in Town by AK The internet and, in particular, the Arsenal fans, is buzzing with the news of Elneny joining Arsenal amid complicated process. Mohamed Elneny is the midfielder Arsenal fans have been, for a while, waiting for. So much so, that we all get frustrated when we wake up to [.
Back in September Arsenal beat Stoke at the Emirates, but that was not too much of a surprise as we have an excellent home record against Mark Hughes' side, but up at the Britannia Stadium it is a completely different kettle of fish. We have only won one of our last 8 visits and our [...]
Arsenal have managed to get to the top of the League table at the halfway point in the campaign and it seems that Thierry Henry has finally become convinced that the Gunners really can win the title with Olivier Giroud as their main striker, after famously stating during the summer that it was impossible.
There seems to be an ever-growing feeling that Barcelona have made the Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey their main target for the coming summer, and the rumours are becoming more and more persistent in the last few weeks. Ramsey has played alongside Gareth Bale in the Wales national team for many years and they will both [.
Mikel Arteta MUST stay on the Arsenal bench by DN I have absolutely no doubt about Mikel Arteta's previous ability and the contribution he has made to the team in the last few years, but due to the emergence of Francis Coquelin last season and his constant injuries have seen him drop to third choice [.
Arsenal got away with conceding a late equaliser away to Liverpool in midweek, although it was a bitter pill to swallow for the Gunners, because our main Premier League title rivals Man City had been held to a draw themselves by Everton. This weekend, however, has seen Man City go ahead of Arsenal on goal [.
Over the last few years Arsenal fans have looked on an away game against Stoke City in much the same way that Flash Gordon felt when he had to stick his hand in that old tree stump that had a horrible pain and death inflicting creature lurking somewhere in the depths. And it seems that [...]
It was probably not a surprise to the Arsenal midfield star when he was not voted as the best player of the Germany national team for the calendar year 2014, despite the fact that Mesut Ozil had won the award for the three previous years and was looking untouchable. 2014 was not a great year [...]
The fact that Arsene Wenger is even considering taking a risk on such an important player to the Arsenal cause as our Chilean international forward star Alexis Sanchez just shows how much difference he can make on the pitch. If the Gunners were not facing a game like the away clash with Stoke City, where [.
It is quite amazing how some teams and grounds are more difficult no matter where the two teams stand in the table. I know records are there to be broken but in my head I know for a fact that Stoke are Arsenal's bogey team when we meet at the Britannia Stadium. The stats bear [...]
Don't expect an easy win folks! by DN We know how desperately annoying it was for Liverpool to score an equalizer in the dying minutes at Anfield, especially as the win would have moved us even further ahead of Man City in the title race. But the fact is that we didn't win, and when [...]
Who would have thought that Mark Hughes could change Stoke City into a proper football-playing team rather than a bunch of thugs fighting to stay in the Premier League? Well it looks like he has done it, although Shaquiri will not be playing tomorrow the Potters have won their last two games without him.
We do not know if this little nugget of an Arsenal transfer rumour is actually right, but after Arsene Wenger signed a central midfielder Mohamed Elneny in the January transfer window and with the three current Arsenal players in question being generally on the fringe of the first team and being on the wrong side [.
Should Elneny really start v Stoke? by JH So Arsenal finally completed the transfer of our first DM since Lassana Diarra, and today rumours have been rife that he may well start his first game at the Brittania stadium on Sunday. Whilst I am sure we are all aware of the saying that you haven't [...]
Arsenal fans will have to wait until Sunday to see whether or not our star striker Alexis Sanchez will be fit and ready to face Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium, where we have got a pretty poor recent record and could really do with the Chilean dynamo's energy and fighting qualities. I suspect he [.
LIVERPOOL, WALCOTT AND THE ARSENAL ATTACK by Uche Hello everybody and a mighty big welcome to Mohammed Elneny, aka El Daddy. I have got to say that if his reputation is anything to go by, we might have finally found the heir to Patrick Vieira. Tall, tough, great technical ability, good on the ball, a [.
I am not expecting or asking for Arsenal to get any favours from the officials when we take on Stoke City in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon. It would be pointless anyway because the Gunners never get much help from them. But it would be nice and a big help if we get a [...]
So we finally got the official confirmation that Mohamed Elneny is an Arsenal player, and he becomes the first ever Egyptian international to sign for the Gunners. Everyone has high hopes for the 23 year-old, and his stats (which I'm sure is what got Wenger interested in the first place) show that he is the [.
Many Arsenal fans may consider that Mohamed Elneny is a sort of panic buy brought on by the injuries sustained to Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla, but I am sure that Wenger and his scouts would have had the Egyptian midfielder under observation for a long long time before deciding to make an offer.
I'm beginning to like this young man's attitude. Mohamed has already told how he is aiming to win every trophy available with Arsenal, and now he has come out with fighting talk for those critics who dare to suggest he is not good enough for the Premier League. Elneny told the Basel website: "It is [.
While Arsenal fans might feel that the end of the January transfer window is already coming up too fast, Arsene Wenger could be forgiven for wishing it was already over, because of the news that the Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid have been slapped with a transfer ban by football's governing body FIFA.
Well there you have it Arsenal fans, the news that we all feared and most of us expected has been confirmed today by Arsene Wenger. The Gunners will not be signing another striker in the January transfer window, unless something happens to change the mind of our manager in the next couple of weeks. With [.
Arsenal have a colourful recent history against our next Premier League opponents, with all sorts of unsavoury incidents and mutual bad blood being built up in the time of Tony Pulis and carrying on under their new boss Mark Hughes. Neither set of fans will soon forget the Aaron Ramsey and Ryan Shawcross broken leg [.
What a brilliant game of football. Joel Campbell has arrived at Arsenal. By Galen Sona This has been a crazy midweek of football which has made me to think of telling the FA to scrap the weekend games and change to midweek. I feel disappointed as we missed an opportunity to extend our lead against [.
After ostensibly dropping two points against Liverpool last night, Arsenal could really do with getting back to winning ways against Stoke City on Sunday and banishing the frustration from last nights game. Many Arsenal fans are understandably upset that Wenger made his three changes near the end of bringing on Mikel Arteta, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and [.
Arsenal have plenty of injury problems of our own to worry about at the moment and they are important players that Arsene Wenger is having to cope without as well. The likes of Jack Wilshere, Danny Welbeck and Tomas Rosicky may not always be guaranteed starters but they do have a significant impact for Arsenal, [.
Arsenal were undone by a late Liverpool equalizer through Joe Allen after coming from behind twice at Anfield last night, but with Man City also being held to a draw the Gunners haven't lost much in the race for the title. Although our failure to hold on the lead could be considered to be two [...]
Arsenal are continuing their commercial agreements with companies in the Asian sector by announcing a partnership with the Bank Muamalat, whereby they can offer Arsenal-related goods to Indonesian fans and even run some coaching courses on the islands in partnership with the Muslim Bank. Arsenal's Chief Commercial Officer Vinai Venkatesham said on Arsenal.
Whatever else you could say about last night's game between Liverpool and Arsenal, you could never say it was boring! It was gung-ho end-to-end stuff that is usually described as 'a great advert for Premiership football' although I personally would have preferred a boring 1-0 win for the Gunners! But our acting captain Per Mertesacker [.
All three of the new Arsenal players could have completed their transfers to the club in the next few days, which would make it an outside possibility that Arsenal fans could get our first chance to see the Egyptian international midfield star Mohamed Elneny in action for the Gunners at the weekend. The 23-year old [.
Arsenal paid the price for being too passive and suicidal defending by KM Hello fellow Gooners. I am highly disappointed with the fact we threw away the lead and I cannot accept the fact we did far too many defensive changes and we were hoping to just roll over the finishing line and with the [...
My choice of which Arsenal player to give the Man of the Match to was not as simple as it might seem, even though Olivier Giroud scored two of our goals and both of them were very good. He had missed an absolute sitter earlier and there were also strong performances from Ramsey, with a [...]
Wow that was an amazing and full blooded Premier League encounter between Arsenal and Liverpool and in some ways it was very similar to what happened at Anfield last season. Arsenal were hit hard and fast by the home team from the start and we somehow managed to weather the storm, come back and take [.
It was fairly easy to guess the Arsenal starting line up that would be facing Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool side in the Premier League at Anfield tonight, with Arsene Wenger only having a couple of little decisions to make. There are no surprises really, as Giroud starts through the middle. Ramsey, Flamini, Mertesacker and Monreal all [.
Arsenal fans will be hoping that the blue half of Merseyside can do us a favour, with Roberto Martinez taking his Everton side to face our main Premier League rivals Man City. And with Pellegrini missing key players like Kompany, Mangala, Fernandinho, Bony and Nasri there is a decent chance. Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal [.
Arsenal head to Anfield in fine fettle and with a lot of confidence. We have just got through to the next round of the FA cup with a comfortable victory over Premier League opponents in Sunderland. We also pulled off a miraculous rescue mission to stay in the Champions League although I do not want [.
Arsenal face a tricky trio of League games starting tonight at Anfield, and the outcome of these tests could prove decisive in proving Arsenal's credentials as title contenders, according to the ex-Arsenal star Paul Merson. With Liverpool having so many injuries perhaps tonights game could be the easiest of the three, and Merson thinks all [.
Next few games could decide our title credentials by KM Hello fellow Gooners. Excited about the return of the League? It's this time of the year, where matches come thick and fast and in a span of a week you can jump up or down with a few positions. So the fixture list sees three [...]
Stats show Leiva and Can will dominate Flamini and Ramsey in key midfield battle by RC Jürgen Klopp has admitted than Liverpool cannot compete with Arsenal if they try to match Arsene Wenger's possession-based game-plan. The Premier League leaders go to Anfield on Wednesday night as they continue their pursuit of claiming a first league [.
The problem for Arsene Wenger during this January transfer window is likely to be the same one that Arsenal fans have been hearing for years, lack of availability. The Frenchman has said over and over again that he will not sign any players for the sake of signing someone, although the current injury situation in [.
Beware the spud Arsenal by Sam P All the talk in the football media in the build up to Arsenal facing Liverpool in the Premier League tonight has been about whether the creaking and injury hit back line of the Anfield mob can stand up to the creative genius of Mesut Ozil and the scoring [...]
The chance to establish himself in the Arsenal first team was a long time coming for the Costa Rican international forward Joel Campbell, but after a few years going around various leagues in Europe and then sitting on the Arsenal bench in England, the injury situation at the club left the door open.
While Arsenal took our FA cup 3rd round game against Sunderland seriously and also got the just reward for starting with first team stars like Walcott, Giroud, Koscielny, Bellerin and Petr Cech, our next Premier League opponents Liverpool made wholesale changes. They got what they deserved as well and now have to face another unwanted [.
There are few, if any, Premier League clubs that have had more injury problems than Arsenal to cope with in recent years and the fact that we have always had the Champions League to worry about as well as the three domestic competitions has made it even harder for Arsene Wenger to cope. Even now [...
So far during the current campaign the Arsenal left back role on the first team has mainly belonged to the Spaniard Nacho Monreal. He has started 19 of the 20 Premier League games, coming on as a sub in the other, and four of the six Champions League games. That must have been frustrating for [...]
As we headed towards the end of the busy festive football period, Arsenal were looking good, but also looking ahead to what appeared to be a tough run of games over the first month of the new calendar year. It is so far so good for the Gunners after winning all three matches following the [...]
The new Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is well aware that Arsenal play the possession football that he wants his own team to play, but realises that it is too early to try and match them at their own game and instead is working out a plan to stop the Gunners taking control of the game [...]
Good news on the striker front? by DN Despite Wenger's protestations that Arsenal have enough strikers already on the books, and the ongoing prediction that Danny Welbeck will be back in the squad shortly (yeah yeah), the Gunners continue to be linked with classy strikers that are at least as good as the ever-injured Englishman.
Jurgen Klopp arrived at Liverpool with an impressive reputation after building Borussia Dortmund into a team capable of challenging Bayern Munich (and also beating Arsenal a couple of times!), and Arsene Wenger respects the German for that and is expecting a tough match when they meet each other in the Premier League for the first [.
Over the last few years there has been much talk of the curse of being Arsenal's captain, and it certainly is a fact that once appointed they play brilliantly and are sold the following year (Like Fab4 and RVP), or get injured (like Thomas Vermaelen and Mikel Arteta) and don't hardly ever appear on the [.
Ever since Arsene Wenger arrived as the and relatively unheard of new manager of Arsenal Football Club, almost 20 years ago now, he has often surprised us Arsenal fans and the football world in general with the way he has done things. Whether you agree with all those things or not is another matter but [.
There were a few better possible draws for Arsenal to get in the draw for the 4th round of the FA cup made today than Burnley, but let's not get too greedy Gooners shall we? The draw has been pretty favourable for the Gunners without being against a club so far down the lower leagues [...]
When Arsenal beat Liverpool in the 1971 FA cup final thanks to a dramatic late winner from Charlie George it was our fourth victory in the world's oldest football competition but it was also the first time the Gunners had managed a league and cup double. Up until then the only club that had managed [.
The Arsenal legend Thierry Henry is very happy that Arsenal are top of the League, but he thinks that the Gunners should have opened up a bigger gap in the first half of the season as the second half is full of tough away fixtures. He has obviously thought long and hard about this and [...]
The Arsenal and England international star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may not have had a very good season so far and he still needs to show us a lot more to secure more regular first team football, but after an impressive performance in the centre of midfield against Sunderland in the FA cup, I reckon he should [.
Even I can remember the days back at Highbury watching Arsenal players like Johnny Radford and Peter Storey from the boys enclosure (just a long trench alongside the pitch! 10 bob entrance fee!)) and wishing upon wish that one day it would be me playing on the pitch in the famous red and white. I [..
It has been a matter of some conjecture and speculation among Arsenal fans and the football world in general, a little bit like a Royal birth in a way, because everyone knows what is going to happen but they still check the news and are surprised when confirmation comes in, what Arsenal Football Club are [.
With the latest injury news concerning Danny Setback I honestly thought that Arsene Wenger would bring in a reasonably priced striker to give Arsenal an extra attacking dimension when Theo Walcott predictably goes back into the treatment room in February. The best bet at a good price was the Brazilian hitman Pato, who has regained [.
Arsenal began their quest to win a third FA Cup in a row on Saturday against Sunderland, and although Arsene Wenger made big changes from his first choice side they still carried the day with a 3-1 win over the Black Cats. Hector Bellerin had a big part to play in two of the goals [...]
Arsenal have not won the Premier League for over ten years but are going to for an incredible hat-trick of FA Cup wins, as well as having to face the mighty Barcelona in the Champions League knockouts, but do the Gunners have a big enough squad to challenge on all three fronts? Wenger said earlier [.
Anyone but the assist king! by DN The January transfer window is open but it looks as if Arsenal will be treating it with the usual disdain. Oh how we laugh and scoff at these desperate clubs like Man City and Chelsea who feel they have been lax if they have not spent at least [...]
I am not going to talk about the Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with the current Bayern Munich and former Barcelona manager Pep Gurdiola. And I don't want to start another argument between the AOBs and the WOBs. But one way or the other and sooner rather than later the club is going to have [...
The time is fast approaching when our much loved Chilean returns, once at full fitness of course he will reclaim his position on the left in Arsenal's starting line-up, with Cazorla unable to return for at least 8 weeks, you would assume Ramsey will keep his favoured position in the middle. This leaves just the [.
While this news will be welcomed with open arms by just about every Arsenal fan on the planet, it might not go down too well with the family and friends of a certain Mister Kieran Gibbs, because the England international is having a hell of a job getting a game for the Arsenal first team [...]
As usual there is a large gap between the Gunners buying a player and the official announcement from the Arsenal heirarchy, which always leaves the fans feeling ignored and frustrated. But Arsene Wenger has apparently decided that he will be announcing our new arrival in the next couple of days. He was reported as saying: [.
There have been many interesting Arsenal transfer rumours this month, but most have been concerning players that may be coming to the Emirates (except for Matthieu Debuchy) as cover for our never-ending injury list. But today the Express is reporting that the Barcelona manager Luis Enrique is a big fan of our very own Aaron [.
He may not have actually scored or provided the assist for any of the three goals Arsenal scored against Sunderland yesterday in order to progress to the next round of the FA cup, but I believe that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was the best player on the pitch. After a tough and stop-start season so far the [.
There is a long way to go and a lot of football to be played before the FA cup final in May, but if Arsenal do get there for the third year in a row and go on to lift the famous old trophy once more, it will be an achievement that has not been [...]
You know what Arsene Wenger will say about Arsenal and the search for another striker in the January transfer window, because we have all heard it before. The club will sign a striker this month if the right one comes along and if they are available. And therein lies the problem because there is a [.
Because of the ongoing injury situation at Arsenal, along with the brilliant form of our German international play maker this season, Arsene Wenger has found it very difficult to give Mesut Ozil any time off. But with the Premier League and the fitness of our key player in mind, the boss did not include him [.
Before this 3rd round FA cup clash Arsene Wenger had urged his Arsenal players not to take the visitors Sunderland too lightly and expressed the need for Arsenal to start well, so the FRenchman must have been wondering what was going when the Gunners presented the Black Cats with a real gift for the opening [.
Arsene Wenger has had a bit of a balancing act to perform as he prepares Arsenal for the first step in the defence of our FA cup trophy. We all know that the Premier League is a big priority but we also must pay due respect to the cup that has been so good to [...]
Arsene Wenger may still have the reputation of being a bit of an Ebeneezer Scrooge and treating the Arsenal purse strings as if they were his own, but after spending big money on the transfer fees for Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in recent years and splashing decent amounts on other players like Calum Chambers, [.
Just a day or two ago there were reports in the football media that the Arsenal and Costa Rica international forward Joel Campbell could be set to leave the club and the Premier League completely, with representatives of the Turkish champions Galatasaray supposedly in London to talk about signing him in the January transfer window.
Arsenal's young Pole Wojciech Szczesny is currently on loan at Roma and with the Serie A club already clear that he will not be needed next season, his future is now up in the air. There were whispers that David Ospina was unhappy with his lack of playing time as understudy to Petr Cech, but [...]
Wenger surprisingly open on Arsenal's transfer business. by KM Well, well, a very good day to all of you good ladies and gentlemen out there. I was catching up these days on what the media has been saying lately about Arsenal and the transfer window, but what made the biggest surprise to me was how [.
Arsenal are going for a hat-trick of FA Cup wins and Arsene Wenger has assured the fans that he will be trying hard to get this amazing treble, but what team is he likely to pick to overcome Sunderland today? If this was a League Cup match we would expect nearly the whole team to [...]
No team has won the FA Cup three times in a row since Blackburn in 1878, so it would be an incredible achievement for Arsene Wenger to guide Arsenal to this historic treble. Having already announced that he won't be playing his reserves, he is adamant that this is a big target for the Gunners [...]
Although Arsenal are still way behind the two favourites Man City and Chelsea to win the race to make Pep Guardiola the new manager for next season, with City clear odds on favourites, Chelsea at 6 to 1 and the Gunners back on 11 to 1, there has been a growing number of Arsenal transfer [...]
There have been a few Arsenal transfer rumours in recent weeks talking about the possible exit from the club of our France international right back Mathieu Debuchy, and it is quite understandable for the player as he needs to be playing regular football in order to increase his chances of getting into the France team [.
The fact that Arsene Wenger is the longest serving manager in the Premier League is often used as a stick to beat Arsenal with, especially during those lean years without a trophy while the Frenchman's funds were severely restricted and other clubs like Chelsea and Man City were throwing money around like Richard Pryor in [.
I know it sounds a bit farfetched, and I am certain that any Arsenal fan would snap Roman Abramovich's hand off if he offered to sell us Eden Hazard as long as Wenger gave him Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in return, but is it such an impossible deal to believe? According to the latest rumours, Eden Hazard [.
As we are facing the Black Cats this weekend it reminded me of past collaborations I have done with Colin from Salut Sunderland before other games between us, so I thought I'd check out to see the "View from the Enemy". Ahead of this game Colin has run an interview with Andy Sixsmith, who is [...]
All Arsenal fans had known that Alexis Sanchez was due to suffer a hamstring injury a long time before it actually happened as we had numerous warnings over the previous six weeks, so it was no surprise when he finally succumbed against Norwich in November. We all agreed then that it was about time we [.
The transfer window is yet to kick into top gear, but signings appear imminent, and we thought we'd give you a brief update of the latest reports and speculation. Mohamed Elneny is firmly expected to be announced as an Arsenal player in the coming days, and Arsene Wenger has reiterated that thought in his press [.
I am reasonably sure that Arsene Wenger was hoping to be able to rest a few key Arsenal players fir the FA cup 3rd round tie against Sunderland at the Emirates Stadium tomorrow, or at the very least he would have wanted to be able to give Arsenal´s star man and creative genius Mesut Ozil [...]
The title of this article, even if it does turn out to be true, does not mean that Arsenal will soon have the Gabon international striker in our squad, as we would still need the player's current club Borussia Dortmund to accept the transfer offer and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would have to agree to become a [.
Arsenal already have a long and distinguished history in the annals of the game and especially in the oldest cup competition in the world, the FA cup. The victory over Aston Villa at Wembley last May made the Gunners the most successful team in the competition with 12 wins, after the year before had seen [.
I can perfectly understand why there is a lot of good feeling and confidence around Arsenal Football Club at the minute. The Gunners sit on top of the Premier League despite our injury problems and even those are getting close to being over, while Arsene Wenger sounds more ready to make proper use of this [.
The talented young French midfielder only joined Arsenal in the summer but Jeff Reine-Adelaide has already made a name for himself with the Arsenal fans. The 17-year old impressed in both of his appearances during the Emirates Cup and he even helped us win the trophy by providing the assist for Theo Walcott to score [.
The 17 year-old Jeff Reine-Adelaide may have only arrived at Arsenal last summer, but he made an immediate impact when providing an assist against Wolfsburg in the Emirates Cup. Many observers thought that he was already good enough to join the first team squad, but Jeff himself knew that e sill had to fight for [.
Arsenal's brilliant new signing Petr Cech already has four FA Cup Winners medals from his time at Chelsea, and he has made it clear that he considers it to be an important trophy to him. "I always say it is a special competition," he said on Arsenal.com. "I always love to play in FA Cup [...]
It might be a push for Arsene Wenger to throw the new Arsenal signing straight into action against Sunderland on Saturday, but with The Mirror reporting that the Gunners are ready to announce the transfer of Mohamed Elneny from the Swiss champions Basel, it is certainly a possibility. The only thing that has been holding [.
There is a very interesting Arsenal rumour doing the rounds at the moment with some quotes from the Nigerian international striker Austin Amutu, who claims that Arsene Wenger has been keeping an eye on his career and expects the Frenchman to take him to Arsenal in the near future. The 22 year old, who is [.
Happy Gooner! New Signing Arrived, do we need more and what do we do with what we have? by SOH Now we have signed Mohammed Elneny from FC Basle for about 5m rising to 7.5m, who else do we go for or do we need more? With Coquelin, Santi and Jack back we would have [...]
Arsenal fans already know that our FA cup opponents on Saturday are likely to field a weakened side, after the Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce had a right old moan about his fixture schedule. He might be trying to pull a fast one but I very much doubt it with their Premier League survival under threat [.
Arsenal are still seen as the outsiders to win the race to appoint the former Barcelona and current Bayern Munich boss when he moves to the Premier League in the summer. Pep Guardiola has certainly sent the football media into a frenzy of speculation this week, though, as he declared that he would be coming [.
It has often been said of Arsenal in recent years, or more specifically about our manager Arsene Wenger, that the tactics were a bit predictable, even if the football was full of flair and excitement. The Frenchman was stubborn they said and had no plan B, but the Gunners have proved that to be wrong [.
The FA cup competition has not always been kind to the Arsenal midfield star Francis Coquelin. His first FA cup start was back in 2010 and Coquelin endured a tough game at right back and was subbed by Arsene Wenger as Arsenal went on to lose the game to Stoke City. It was much kinder [...]
With Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla out injured in the long term, Arsenal are looking very short of options in midfield, even if the inexperienced Mohamed Elneny arrives this month. What the Gunners really need is a proven Premiership defensive midfielder like Southampton's Victor Wanyama to play straight away, and to share the responsibilities with [.
Arteta's back! by DN We all know that our nominal captain Mikel Arteta has done great things for Arsenal in his time, but although I am sure he is a great example to our youngsters on the training field I don't believe he is now capable of doing a job for the first team. With [...]
Ever thought you could have finished that chance Olivier Giroud just missed? Or that the killer passes Mesut Ozil makes look easy, are actually easy? There is only one way to find out put on those boots, don the prized 1980's Arsenal strip sponsored by JVC and show the world just how good you [...]
As usual, the whole world knows about an Arsenal transfer deal long before it is officially announced by the club itself. According to the rumours, Arsenal's deal with Basel for Mohamed Elneny was done and dusted before the transfer window even opened, but it has been left to his old team-mate Albian Ajeti to confirm [.
A few days ago when the Arsenal transfer rumours linking the club to a possible January move for the Borussia Dortmund and Gabon international striker first started to hit the headlines, I dismissed the reports because the player himself had spoken before the Bundesliga winter break about how happy he was at Dortmund.
This is the good news that Arsenal fans have been waiting for, as we have had to hope that the lengthy injury list at the club did not inflict too much damage on our hopes of Premier League success this season. And with our first FA cup game of the season coming up just days [...]
Next up for Arsenal in the Premier League is the tough looking trip to Anfield to take on Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool next Wednesday. Before that we have the FA cup clash at home to Sunderland and we have already heard their manager Sam Allardyce bitching and moaning about the scheduling of the games and complaining [.
You were probably as surprised as me to see the latest of the Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds today, because as much as this Premier League striker is on a good run of form at the minute, you would not usually think of the Watford captain and forward Troy Deeney when you were thinking [...]
The Arsenal and France international centre forward may not have scored for the Gunners in the last three matches, but he is still the club's top scorer this season with 16 goals and his tally of 10 in the Premier League has come at a strike rate of better than a goal every other game. [...]
Gunners Seek January Signings To Bolster Squad by CP We're thrilled that Arsenal is finally opening up its treasure chest and looking at signing some new players during the January transfer window. Although the team is performing far above expectations, it will desperately need some new blood if it hopes to continue its success through [.
Arsenal have come through the gruelling Christmas schedule with flying colours and have moved to the top of the Premier League, but it is also important that we now concentrate on our next game which is the first in our defence of our FA Cup trophy. Our players are set for a weeks rest before [...]
Arsenal always have nearly a whole team out on loan every season, and Arsene Wenger normally picks their destinations carefully to try and match the level of their ability in the hope that first team experience will help them improve their game. But probably this season's biggest disappointment on loan has been the Germany U21 [.
I am not asking which of the three competitions that Arsenal are still involved in is the most important to Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal fans, because we all know that the easy answer to that would be the English Premier League. As well as it being every club's wish to be champions of their [...]
Up until christmas it was looking as though Arsenal had seen off the title challenge of our old Premier League rivals Manchester United. Arsene Wenger and the lads had recovered from a tough November to enjoy a much better month of December and although it was Claudio Ranieri and Leicester City who sat on top [.
It is always good to have confidence in your own ability and Arsenal can do with any and all help we can get if the Gunners are going to end up as Champions of England for the first time in over a decade at the end of this season. So it is good to hear [...]
Arsene Wenger has given us the latest update on the Arsenal injury situation and while the Frenchman had to admit that he is still largely in the dark as to the return date of some of the crocked Gunners like Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck, there was some very good news for Arsenal fans. The [...]
While the Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger are all hoping to see the Chile international Alexis Sanchez back in action very soon, with the boss saying before the new year that he could be back for the FA cup game, it will not help Arsenal with that crucial centre forward position that many of us [...]
It has certainly been a strange and interesting season in the Premier League so far. No club has really taken control and that is just as well for Arsenal as we did not get off to the best start. Man City did but then hit a slump and now Leicester City appear to be doing [...]
One of the biggest concerns for everyone connected with Arsenal right now is the possibility that our injury problems will have the same effect on our Premier League title challenge as they did when we were last in this position. Back then Arsenal had actually amassed more points and had spent a lot longer on [.
Now that Arsenal have come through the festive run of fixtures relatively unscathed, we can all relax a little bit. Amazingly enough Arsene Wenger has no more injury problems to worry about and he now has a week to prepare for the next match, Sunderland at home in the FA cup. However, I would not [..
ARSENAL IS OVERPERFORMING by Uche Happy new year everyone and welcome to 2016. It was a tough, scrappy and nervy win against Newcastle yesterday but a win nonetheless. The difficulty of that game was expected. In fact, I am shocked that we are league leaders when you consider all the crucial factors working against us.
With the January transfer window now open Arsenal fans will be hoping that Arsene Wenger really is as busy as he suggested earlier this week but that does not mean that we should believe all of the Arsenal transfer rumours in the football media. And in my opinion that goes for the one in The [...]
I guess it would not be a big surprise that Olivier Giroud thinks that Arsenal don't need another striker, especially as he has already been displaced once by Theo Walcott this season before the Englishman got injured. We all know that Olivier gets worried when he thinks that Wenger is looking at new strikers as [.
Arsene Wenger has already assured the Arsenal fans that he will be having a busy month in the transfer market and it seems pretty clear that the Frenchman is planning to sign more than just one player to boost the squad and our chances of keeping up the good run of results and not letting [...]
This is Arsenal's year at last! by G-Rude Perhaps the fact that Arsenal won against the odds yesterday after being outplayed by Newcastle, is a very good sign that 2016 could be Arsenal's year. Certainly Theo Walcott thinks it is a great omen for the club and the players have the belief that this really [.
The fact that the German Bundesliga club specifically mentioned Arsenal in their statement does suggest to me that the Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with a January transfer move for their former Manchester United star were close to the mark. It was being reported around the football media last week that the Mexico international forward [.
Here is another AudioPost from Arsene Wenger's interview by SkySports after Arsenal struggled to take the points of Newcastle yesterday.

I am writing this article before Arsenal and our Premier League rivals like Man City and Leicester City kick off for the first matches of the new year, so the numbers in the statistics I am using to compare our assist king Mesut Ozil with other players doing well in the same position will have [...]
After Arsene Wenger confirmed the possibility of Mathieu Debuchy leaving the club in January, reports have emerged claiming that another Arsenal star is also likely to leave.

Arsenal fans are Deluded! By Galen Sona. This win against Newcastle for me is probably Arsenal's best result of the season, because a few years ago we would have lost this game. My biggest problem with Arsenal for the last 10 years is that we always had to play well to win. 60% possession with [...]
As was made clear in the previous article, Arsenal beat Newcastle despite playing badly and managing to win 'ugly' for a change. Arsene Wenger admitted that he had to feel sorry for Steve McLaren's team but he was more than happy with the Gunners mental strength to take the points. Theo Walcott believes that it [.
This is a very strange game to work out the ratings for each player, as although we won the game, there was not much for Arsenal fans to rave about. But here goes.... Cech 8 There is no doubt that Petr is our signing of the summer (our only signing lol) and he was [...]
Arsenal may be top of the table, but it has been pointed out that the second half of the Premier League campaign has a few harder away games than we had to deal with in the first half. But Arsene Wenger believes that his team now has the ability to deal with these situations now [...]
How 'Winning Mentality' Can Help Arsenal This Season! by AT Although it is perhaps unfamiliar for Arsenal in recent times to be top of the table at the halfway stage of the season, it is worth remembering that the Gunners were in an identical situation two years ago, during Mesut Ozil's debut season at the [.
The German playmaker Mesut Ozil has been in scintillating form for Arsenal this season, and Arsene Wenger is well aware exactly how important he is to the team so he has no intention of giving him a rest in any game at all. This is the same as Alexis Sanchez who ended up needing a [...]
Arsenal face Newcastle today looking down on everyone from the top of the League, but as we all know 'there is no such thing as an easy game' and more in England. Our opponents are flirting with relegation this season but we cannot ignore that their only two wins in their last eight games came [...]
We need to give our youngsters more time by Briantole It is not every player that begins tearing the league apart at a young age. We all hear it from every corner. Wenger urged to get rid of this player and that player. But I feel wenger is right to give his players even more [...]
It should have been a done deal by now and us Arsenal fans should have been getting ready to greet a new Gunner to the Emirates. But Mohamed Elneny will not be unveiled as Arsene Wenger's first signing of the January transfer window, at least not yet. It looks as though Arsene Wenger has taken [...]
Arsene Wenger had said earlier in the week that we was planning to use his Arsenal squad to rotate one again during this busy festive run of fixtures, but as many people expected the boss has mainly just brought back the plkayers that he rested for the win over Bournemouth. The only player that keeps [.
This was far from Arsenal at our best and even though Arsene Wenger has made a few changes for the last couple of games, it looked like the busy festive period was making itslef felt in our legs. We managed to survive a few scares from Newcastle United with a few great saves from Petr [...]
While Arsenal wait for the transfer of Mohamed Elneny from the Swiss club Basel to be completed, assuming that the work permit for the Egyptian international midfielder to be able to play in the English Premier League is granted, Arsene Wenger still has the problem of how to cope without central midfielders like Santi Cazorla, [.
Perhaps it was the fact that the Arsenal and France international defender Laurent Koscielny had been rested by the manager for the last Premier League outing against Bournemouth that helped him to react quicker and beat the Newcastle defenders to the punch today and score the only goal of the game. It was a vital [.
