In this tightest and possibly strangest of Premier League seasons, not too much has gone the way of Arsenal, even though at times we have been our own worst enemies. But after Wenger and the lads were left cursing some games when we deserved to win but were denied by some bad luck and some [...]
Arsene Wenger needs to get his tactics bang on for when Arsenal face Swansea City in the Premier League tomorrow night and I reckon the Frenchman needs to make sure his Arsenal team do not go on all out attack even though we desperately need to win the match to keep our EPL title hopes [...]
Arsenal are in a fair position looking at their stats. by KM Hello everyone. So this is another season that painfully slowly but surely Arsenal are heading back for the usual fourth spot. And as every Arsenal fan, although little I had some hope, despite deep inside me knowing that it will hardly happen, I [.
There is no cure to the Wenger disease by KM Hello everyone. Bored of the same old Arsenal movie we're watching for the 10th year in a row? I know I am, but you know what? Unlike the oscars where Dicaprio finally got what he deserves, the director of the Arsenal movie is far from [...]
Arsene and Arsenal's problems... by TJ It wasn't unreasonable to expect a response from this Arsenal team after the late collapse against Barca. Pride and professionalism hurt, you expect this team to come out playing good football, win, and go some way towards erasing the pain of that loss. We will never know the mental [.
Arsenal Recap, Le Coq, and Swansea by GT First of all. Theo is the worst. He offers nothing. I felt that keeping Theo and making him our striker was the worst idea ever, and it's proven to be just that. I don't fault Wenger for giving Giroud a day off. That makes sense. The problem [...]
It is totally unthinkable for Arsenal fans, but with our bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur now above us in the League and on an excellent winning run, are they now set to overtake Leicester City at the top of the table? The Foxes manager Claudio Ranieri seems to think so! He said: "Tottenham is strong in [.
This is a tricky one as we know Wenger nowadays does not like messing about with his favourite Arsenal players, but many of our top men looked very jaded against Man United, in fact they have looked jaded for a while, especially in the striking department. With the massive game coming up at White Hart [.
One of the major reasons for the problems that Arsenal have had since the turn of the year has been our failure to score. Since that 3-3 draw with Liverpool at Anfield in mid January, Arsenal have managed to find the back of the net just eight times from nine games in all competitions. And [...]
It is that time of the season again and Arsenal fans are getting the same sinking feeling. At least we are still in the FA cup, although our failure to see off Hull City at home means we might not be in it for much longer and it has forced Arsenal to squeeze one more [...]
It has been pretty difficult to find any positives for Arsenal fans to hold onto after the abject weekend of Premier League games. The worst of it was the weak way the Gunners allowed an under strength and out of form Manchester United to dominate the clash at Old Trafford. And that loss for Arsenal [.
Arsenal received a massive setback in the race for the League title by losing at Old Trafford, but Arsene Wenger thinks that his team showed a lot of commitment but lost to a bad couple of goals too quickly to come back from. You can tell Wenger is loathe to criticize his players, and didn't [...]
There is no doubt that Arsenal have given themselves a mountain to climb to get back into the title race, especially with next week's North London Derby now massively important to our season. A make-shift Man United team made our so-called title contenders look like easy pickings and it will make a big fat dent [.
Arsene Wenger was obviously disappointed that his Arsenal team got beaten by a young Man United team yesterday, and he knows that it is important points lost, but we also know that this is a weird topsy-turvy season and there could still be many more twists and turns for every team in the race. Le [.
Arsenal players to go and players to stay. By Galen We have a very average squad of players who are not different from one another. They are all on the same level. Just take a look at Welbeck, Campbell, Ox and Theo? Who is better? They are all four average players who all have [...]
I am so bored of this team and am already looking to next season. Typical Arsenal melt down by Galen Sona. I am just trying look at players we should be targeting in the summer as our squad is clearly a super average squad of very high earners who couldn't hit a cow's arse with [...]
We often hear the same thing from Arsene Wenger or various members of the Arsenal squad about mental toughness, team spirit ir the ability to bounce back from a disappointing performance or run of results. And they have done that a few times but on the other hand, it keeps happening. The Gunners put on [.
Arsenal fans may be a bit miffed to hear that only two players from Arsenal have been included in the all-time Premier League team picked by the football legend that is Zinedine Zidane, but it could be worse. Our north London rivals Tottenham do not have a single place and neither do the big spending [.
Same old story AGAIN by GH I would just like to start off by saying I am not looking for anyone to be sacked, I keep those opinion's to myself, but why do we always got through the same SH*T this time of the year. Champions league (more or less out but we are playing [...]
I am writing this before the kick off between Arsenal and Man United today and hopefully the Gunners will get the win and the three points we need to keep up with the current Premier League leaders Leicester City and back up the comments of Arsene Wenger. The Frenchman was talking this week about why [.
Arsenal are a team that are just happy to be in the top 4. We don't deserve to win the league. By Galen Sona This is not the day for long articles. We have known this for sometime now that most players in our squad are average players. This result doesn't surprise me. I am [...]
With Arsenal really needing to take all three points back to north London to keep up with Leicester City in the race for the Premier League title, a trip to a hughely injury depleted Manchester United who had played a big game on Thursday seemed to be just what we needed. But whether it was [...]
This game used to be one of the biggest matches of the season between the two favourites for the title every year, but since Alex Ferguson left Old Trafford, both David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal have struggled to make United back into the powerhouse we expect to see. But it will still make for [...]
We were all disappointed with the Champions League defeat for Arsenal at the hands of the Spanish champions Barcelona this week, although the determined and disciplined way that the Gunners performed for most of the game has stopped us giving the players and Arsene Wenger too much grief. However, I have to agree with the [.
Why Arsenal won't fade this year DN Many pundits (and quite a lot of so-called Arsenal fans as well) are fully expecting Arsenal's title challenge to fade in the next month or two, and the club will end up in a fight to remain third or fourth in the table. In their defence they will [...]
At least Arsenal fans should be going into today's game against Man United with a bit more confidence than they had against Barcelona on Tuesday night. We may not have won at Old Trafford since Adebayor scored the only goal in 2006, but Louis van Gaal's team is decimated by injuries and are dropping away [.
Arsenal are preparing to face Man United at Old Trafford this afternoon, and despite not having won a League game there for ten years Arsenal are surprisingly hot favourites! But let's be honest here, we are not going to beat anyone if we don't start scoring goals. Giroud hasn't scored in 8 games, Sanchez has [.
Arsenal fans will be hoping that Arsene Wenger and the players can carry on from where we left off in the last two games against Manchester United, rather than the general trend against our old rivals in the last decade. Because apart from our win at OLd Trafford last season on the way to the [...]
Arsenal fans have often heard, and are pig sick of hearing if you are anything like me, the comments from Arsene Wenger about the lack of top quality players out there and the fact that the ones that are there happen to be just too hard to get hold of. So the news reported by [...]
Whether the Arsenal transfer rumours about the possible sale at the end of the season of the England international midfield star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are true is anyone's guess. It could all be just the football media putting two and two together to get five or simply conjecture after the latest injury picked up by the [.
Arsenal fans were just getting ready for the long awaited faltering from our Premier League title rivals Leicester City to begin and it looked like the visitors to the King Power stadium today, Norwich City, might return to Norfolk with even more than a point. The Canaries had stood up to anything the Foxes threw [.
Ahead of the all-important clash at Old Trafford, the Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin has warned his side not to underestimate struggling and injury-hit Manchester United as the clubs prepare for battle on Sunday, with the Gunners aiming to continue their surge towards the Premier League title. Speaking to the club's official website, the Frenchman said: [.
After Arsenal struggled through the end of 2015 and the start of the new year with a pretty heavy injury lost, we all got excited when players started to come back to match fitness and one player in particular was seen as the possible saviour of the season and the man to spark a strong [...]
What Arsenal really wanted to see from the Europa League clash between Manchester United and the Danish club FC Midtjylland at Old Trafford last night was an exhausting match that went to extra time and penalties. And a confidence destroying early exit against an unfancied club would have been nice as well but we cannot [.
So with Arsenal facing Man United tomorrow at Old Trafford, there are a lot of fans wanting Danny Welbeck to be given a chance to start ahead of Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott, but Arsene Wenger seems a bit wary of him as he has not had many games since returning from his long lay [...]
Tomorrow Arsenal face yet another crucial game in the race for the title, and like the win over Leicester it is going to be a tough fixture facing Man United at Old Trafford. Our League record up there is atrocious but we do have comfort in the knowledge that we knocked United out of the [...]
With just twelve games to go till the end of the season, Arsenal find themselves in a good position in the table and are in touching distance of the summit. Despite the recent problems, most fans will be reasonably happy and would have surely taken this at the beginning of the season. However, improvements have [.
The more I read about Arsenal's big match against Man United tomorrow the more worried I get! And the latest news from the official Man United website is that they are expecting David De Gea and Chris Smalling to return for the game, and the Gunners are having enough problems scoring goals as it is..
Before Arsenal resume the quest to make it a record of three FA cup trophy wins in a row with a 5th round replay and then a potential quarter final with Watford in the same week, there are three Premier League games that require total focus from the Gunners and we could really do with [...]
A trip to Old Trafford is always difficult no matter of the circumstances by KM Hello fellow Gooners. In all fairness we're miles of Europe's footballing elite. The Barcelona game was just another confirmation which is obvious for years now. But despite that, on Sunday we'll be facing a team with an identity crisis of [.
I know all us Arsenal fans are upset with the lack of goals from Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Alexis Sanchez at the moment, but everyone is now treating Danny Welback as the returning Messiah after he popped up with the winning goal against Leicester. The weight of expectation is heavy on his shoulders, but [.
Arsenal are confident and ready by Sam P Okay we all know Man United have won their last two games scoring 8 goals, but come on, you can hardly consider that amazing form when your opponents were Shrewsbury and a team I can't even spell, can you? More to the point, United have only won [...]
Arsene Wenger was never going to come out and say that Arsenal are out of the Champions League, as we still have the second leg against Barcelona at the Nou Camp to play in a couple of weeks. But after we conceded that penalty and Lionel Messi converted it to give the Spanish champions a [...]
With Arsenal fans and players licking our wounds this week after losing the Champions League home game against Barcelona thanks to two goals from the great Lionel Messi and another blank from the Arsenal attack, the last thing we want to hear is a player like Joey Barton spouting off about where it all went [.
This is where Barcelona really bettered us by Briantole We played a game where the entire world expected Arsenal to lose, but after that 2 0 defeat some fans were really over reacting and started putting the blame on some of our players, but I don't think all of it was justified. Let us see..... [...
Great News for Arsenal as Defender Set To Return! by AT Ahead of the crucial trip to Old Trafford, Arsenal have received a massive injury boost as the Gunners centre-half Gabriel has confirmed his recovery from a hamstring problem, and the Brazilian may well be in line for a start against Manchester United on Sunday.
Would Ozil move on from Arsenal?? by JH I write this article with a degree of trepidation, earlier I wrote an article about Arsenal being one player from greatness, a striker. In said article I asked what the point is in having a Mesut Ozil when we don't have a top striker, now my mind [...]
Okay here is a small competition for our registered JustArsenal fans only, as only six of you will be in with a chance of the big prize! The prizes are being supplied by our friends at Paddy Power, who are keen to promote their Online Bingo games, so if you fancy a flutter go and [...]
It has not been the best of starts to the calendar year of 2016 for Arsenal. It has not been the worst either, but after a great December and festive period, things have got a bit sticky for the Gunners. There have been some good moments like beating our title rivals Leicester City and we [...]
Arsenal and Hull City have finally been given the date for the replay in the 5th round of the FA cup, after both clubs were involved in the discussion about when to fit this match into our busy schedules. I am a little surprised as I thought that we would end up having to move [...]
The full extent of the injury picked up by the Arsenal and England international midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is yet to be found out, as the 22-year old is due to have further tests today but after the initial assessment of him yesterday it is not looking too promising for the Ox. According to the Daily [.
I an just making a hypothesis here and reading between the lines, but I reckon that it is pretty logical conclusion to make about Arsenal and one of the best players in the world at the minute. The problem as I see it is that if the Arsenal forwards keep wasting all of the chances [...]
On the heels of a disappointing defeat at the hands of Barcelona, Arsenal travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United in a hugely significant Premier League encounter. A win for the Gunners will keep them on track for a title challenge and will also effectively knock the Red Devils out of the race for [.
Are Arsenal just one player away from greatness? by JH A lot of fans are very disheartened after our loss to Barcelona, many people blaming AW once again, and I think they are wrong, but they are also right. They are wrong as they have taken this loss as proof that Wenger is tactically inept. [...
Arsenal are not out of the Champions League yet! by Sam P A lot of you will surely say that Barcelona simply destroyed Arsenal at the Emirates on Tuesday, but the fact is that with a bit of luck we could easily have been two goals up before the Catalans scored their first. Even the [...]
Arsenal may have lost to Barcelona on Tuesday, but the Gunners did keep the treble-winning maestros at bay for 70 minutes before succumbing to two silly mistakes. But now the team must prepare to face Man United in a maybe even more crucial game for our season. The acting captain Per Mertesacker sensibly tells his [.
As a result of Arsenal's stunning capture of Petr Cech in the summer and the scintilating form displayed by the former Chelsea man, the Gunners reserve keeper David Ospina has hardly seen any first-team action this season and has admitted his frustration at not being able to feature regularly for Arsene Wenger's side.
With a potential title challenge on the cards, it goes without saying that Arsenal must get the best out of their star players. However, one player who has not been up to his usual best of late is Alexis Sanchez. Since returning from a hamstring problem, the player simply has not been able to exert [.
After Danny Welbeck's return gave Arsenal a much-needed boost in the race for the title, it now seems as though another long-term absentee is closing in on a return. Gunners midfielder Santi Cazorla is recovering well from knee surgery and has penciled down the second leg against Barcelona in the Champions League as a potential [.
Despite being on the sidelines for almost a year, Danny Welbeck has made quite an impact since returning to the Arsenal side. After scoring a crucial winner at home to Leicester that brought Arsene Wenger's side back into the title race, the striker put in a great performance against Hull City and was unlucky not [.
Okay Arsenal let two goals in and that has left us with a mountain to climb ahead of the second leg of the Champions League tie with Barcelona. But it could and would have been so much different if only our attacking players had some sort of clue about how to put the ball in [...]
I do not have any real idea what it will take for the Arsenal manager to convince our club captain Mikel Arteta from leaving the club and joining his fellow countryman Pep Guardiola at Man City when the current season comes to an end, but Arsene Wenger knows his player a lot better than I [...]
We all end up disappointed..... Arsenal did not get over-run by the so-called 'best team in the world' and it looked like a closely-matched tie for the first 70 minutes. In fact we could easily have been in front if we had taken any our opportunities to score, Oxlade-Chamberlain especially. We said before the game [.
Lack of focus and quality cost us in the end. by KM Well Arsene said this is our best chance and guess what? We lost. The last two times Arsenal played Barcelona at the Emirates we managed a win and a draw. I think the players put in more commitment than I've seen in recent [...]
Thoughts: Arsenal v Barcelona by TJ Let's start with the positives and there were plenty. I thought the tactics and the discipline was very good for most part. Ozil shadowing Busquets forced them wide, and in fact forced Busquets out of the centre to find the ball. We pushed them wide and easily covered their [.
Despite a strong defensive performance against the reigning champions Barcelona, Arsenal succumbed to a 2-0 defeat thanks to a late double from Lionel Messi. Even for the most optimistic of fans, it will be difficult to see the Gunners going through from this position. But in my opinion, I think Arsenal's imminent exit from the [.
I cannot be too hard on Arsenal because for so much of this big game that we were expected to lose the Gunners got it right and looked like we would take it right down to the wire in the second leg at the Nou Camp in Barcelona. But then we were caught out pushing [...]
The big question for Arsenal fans today was about who was going to fill the third forward position for this massive Champions League game against Barcelona, as the team selection of Arsene Wenger for the Hull game away int the FA cup had all but told us what team we would see tonight. And the [...]
As Arsenal get set to host the European champions Barcelona in the last 16 of the Champions League, the Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has insisted that his team are capable of beating the all-conquering Spanish giants when the teams take to the field at the Emirates stadium. Speaking ahead of the big game, Wenger said: [.
Why Arsenal Should Take the FA Cup Replay Seriously! by AT Arsenal have definitely had the luck of the draw in the FA Cup this season. After consecutive home draws against Sunderland, Burnley and Hull City, the Gunners have been handed yet another home draw against Watford should they beat the Tigers in the replay [.
Poor old Arsene Wenger just cannot seem to catch a break. If it is not a referee like Mike Dean denying Arsenal two good penalty shouts and forcing us into an FA cup replay that we could really do without, it is a Champions League draw throwing us up against one of the big favourites [...]
Arsene Wenger could still have a surprise or two up his sleeve for us when he puts in the Arsenal team sheet for the Champions League match against Barcelona this evening, but I think that the team he picked for the FA cup clash with Hull City on Saturday as well as the Arsenal injury [...]
Some hope for Arsenal fans? RC Barcelona currently boast the three best players in the world as individuals, however it's their connection and understanding that the trio share which makes them, arguably, the most frightening front-line in football history. The combined force of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez make the Catalans hot favourites to [.
In his press conference ahead of the Arsenal v Barcelona match in the Champions League, Arsene Wenger spoke yesterday about how tough our task will be against Barcelona, the current holders, in the Champions League. As reported by The Mirror the Frenchman was full of praise for our opponents and especially their dangerous attacking trio [.
Arsenal can probably hurt Barcelona but... By Twig It used to be only Messi in the past, but even then Barcelona was a cause of sleepless nights for many Arsenal fans. At this moment though, Barcelona is an even more fearsome prospect boasting not only Messi who has hardly waned since that 4-goal masterclass [.
Tactics and Character needed by RPK With Arsenal set to face the Champions of Europe, Barcelona, what it really provides us is a real test of character and tactical flexibility. Arsenal and Wenger have come up with it in recent years, and the most recent being the home game against Bayern. However, this is an [.
Is there a way to stand firm on Tuesday? by Blaz Dear fellow Gooners, It's been a while since my last post here, but this seems an oportune moment. Tomorrow we will play Barcelona at home and if this forum and comments are anything to go by, we will lose with at least 5 goals [...]
Personally I can think of 11 reasons for Arsenal fans to worry ahead of tomorrow's match against Barcelona, but Arsene Wenger has pinpointed the man that he famously tried to buy a few years ago, Luis Suarez. Le Prof believes that Suarez is the glue that holds the team together, and he admitted that he [.
Henry Gives Arsenal Tactical Advice To Beat Barcelona! Ahead of Arsenal's hugely significant clash against Barcelona in midweek, Gunners legend Thierry Henry has provided some much-needed tactical advice to the North London side. The Frenchman, who also represented the Catalan club after his spell at Arsenal, has recommended an altered defence-oriented approach for the Gunners [.
I do want to have too much of a go at the Arsenal and Chile international star, but there is no getting around the fact that apart from his comeback as a sub in the 4th round of the FA cup, Alexis Sanchez has been well below the standard that we are used to since [...]
I am not saying that Arsenal have not got an extremely tough game ahead of us when Luis Enrique brings his treble winning Barcelona side to north London on Tuesday. They are not the holders of La Liga, the Copa Del Rey and the Champions League for no reason and they were finally able to [...]
Following the frustrating draw against Hull City in the FA Cup, Arsenal welcome Barcelona to the Emirates stadium in what will surely be the Gunners' toughest game of the season so far. Now despite Arsenal's poor form in front of goal, we all know that Arsene Wenger's side possess the firepower to score against any [.
(Whilst Stan and Wenger remain...) by AOT This Tuesday we face Barcelona FC in the Champions League and anyone but the most blind faithed wouldn't give us much hope of getting past them (especially based on our past performances in the UCL, bar one instance against them). Yes, it's only a team and yes they [.
Just over a year ago, Arsenal visted the Etihad stadium to face Manchester City in a hugely important Premier League game and were in need of an excellent defensive performance to keep out the star-studded City attack. While the Gunners produced a collective effort to keep a clean sheet, one player who really stood out [.
Arsenal are still waiting to find out when the FA cup replay with Hull City can be squeezed into the schedule, but I suspect that the fact that both clubs already have very busy fixture lists could mean that this replay will take the place of already scheduled league games. Assuming we get through this [.
With Arsenal, Man City and Tottenham all still involved in European competition, the fact that we all have more expensive squads with greater strength in depth than the surprise Premier League title chasing club Leicester City was somewhat nullified. And even though I do not think that Claudio Ranieri planned it that way, the early [.
Arsenal have to get past Hull City first, of course, and depending on the scheduling of our 5th round replay at the KC Stadium and the team selection of our manager Arsene Wenger that is by no means a sure thing, but if we do get through the Gunners have been handed a pretty good [...]
The Emergence Of Mohammed Elneny! by AT Despite a rather unconvincing performance at home to Hull City in the FA Cup, there was indeed a huge positive for Arsenal going into the business end of the season. The Gunners' January signing Mohammed Elneny put in a brilliant performance as the Gunners strived to breach the [.
Inability to score goal highlights that problems are not gone by KM It's hard to be optimistic with Arsenal because this is what happens next. We continue to miss chances and it means we'll be visiting the KC stadium in an already busy fixture list. I have to say that some players displays were exactly [.
Arsenal fans have got used to the fact that Arsene Wenger has his own way of doing things and certain football principles that he sticks to even if it is not the best thing for his team at any particular time. That was shown again yesterday when after stating that he was not in favour [...]
This is a serious question, and it is not just the fact that Arsenal could only manage a 0-0 draw against Hull yesterday at the Emirates, it has been going on for some time. How many goals has Giroud scored since Christmas? How many Walcott? You could say that yesterday we played our reserves, but [.
Every single Arsenal fan in the world is aware that we have to play Barcelona on Tuesday, but we are also aware that the chances of Arsenal winning the FA Cup for a record third time in a row are much greater than progressing any further in the Champions League, so perhaps we should have [...]
If Arsenal had managed to score the goal we needed to avoid the FA cup replay with Hull City, then the player who scored it would have got my Man of the Match. All three of the starting forwards looked sharp and could jave won it but the Hull keeper played a blinder and as [...]
I dread to think what all the Arsenal strikers are feeling like this morning after yesterday's unbelievable 0-0 draw against Hull, as I posted earlier, ALL of our strikers failed to get past a reserve side from the Championship, and now we have to go to the KC Stadium for a replay at some point [...]
It was one of the defining moments in the early football career of the Arsenal and England international midfielder Jack Wilshere, so it would be a fitting time for the unlucky star to return from his latest injury problem if he could make it back in time for the second leg of our Champions League [.
In the same week that Arsenal fans, or me at least, have been left shocked and bemused by the decision to give control of the Arsenal v Hull City match in the FA cup to our old friend Mike Dean, I read with interest that another high profile referee Mark Clattenburg is to be punished [...]
Arsene Wenger did not go the whole hog and blame the fact that Arsenal were held to a draw by Hull City today on the referee Mike Dean, probably because he was worried about being punished by the football authorities for criticism of their seemingly untouchable officials. But as the live FA cup feed on [.
I must admit that I thought that Arsene Wenger had got this one piece of Arsenal transfer business wrong in the January window. In fact I thought he got a few things wrong but for today I will concentrate on the situation surrounding our France international Mathieu Debuchy. The manager had suggested early on in [.
Steve Bruce was a great player at Manchester United and had some success as a manager as well, most notably when his Hull City side gave Arsenal a big fright in the FA Cup Final a couple of years ago. We beat them again in the Cup last season and today we are aiming for [...]
Arsenal play Hull City in the FA Cup for the third year in a row, and we won the other two. In fact we have won all four FA Cup meetings and we haven't lost to the Tigers in our last ten matches in all competitions, so Arsene Wenger will want to keep that record [...]
Rotations will probably speak volumes abut what's coming up in a massive week. by KM FA Cup time! With all the talk of the title and Barcelona, we've taken the eyes off the prize which apparently saved Arsene's job a few years back. He said it would've been "difficult" had he not won it. It [...]
Just as Arsenal fans were led to believe, our FA cup opponents today in the 5th round have kept their focus on getting out of the Championship and into the Premier League, as Hull City manager Steve Bruce makes 10 changes to his starting line up, so hopefully the fact that Arsene Wenger has made [...
There were wholesale changes from both Arsenal and Hull City for this 5th round match in the FA cup, with the visitors beating Wenger´s nine changes by one, so it was clear that neither side saw this competition as a priority. Both still wanted to win the match though and the players that did start [.
He did not admit at the time, of course, but the pressure from the legions of frustrated Arsenal fans who had grown thoroughly sick and tired of the barren years since moving from Highbury to the Emirates Stadium in 2005 was finally getting under the skin of Arsene Wenger. After the disaster in the League [.
Arsenal have already played one six-pointer 'title decider' against Leicester last week, but our traditional rivals Tottenham Hotspur have also been winning consistently and quietly moved up to equal on points with us in second place in the Premiership. Although we have the small matter of a couple of games against Barcelona coming up and [.
Arsenal have got a couple of very important matches in the FA cup and the Champions League to deal with first, against Hull City on Saturday and then Barcelona on Tuesday night, but the Premier League clash with our old enemy Manchester United is really the most important one of the next three games.
It is very strange to think that Mikel Arteta is the current Arsenal captain, as he has hardly played for us in the last year (and when he has played.....) but the vice-captain Per Mertesacker has been standing in in his absence. Now next season Arteta is unlikely to be in the team because if [...]
Arsene Wenger gave a positive and encouraging update on the injury situation at Arsenal yesterday, reported by Arsenal.com, and as well as the very good news on the fitness of our centre backs Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel after both picked up knocks last week, the manage spoke about his only signing of the January transfer [.
The first thing that would need to happen for Arsenal to be able to sign the Watford and Nigeria international star Odion Ighalo in the summer would be for Arsene Wenger to make the attempt, of course, and for the player and his current club to agree to make the deal. According to a Metro [...]
When do Arsenal finally give up on Jack and Ox? by NP I recently read an article stating that the Ox is negotiating with Arsenal for wages north of 100k per week in his contract extension with Chelsea and Manchester United supposedly interested in signing him. That made me wonder whether its high time we [.
There has been much talk from the Arsenal fans discussing who they want Wenger to start against Hull City tomorrow, but I am pretty good at reading the Bosses mind and I am now going to tell you the team that he WILL name to start the game, and we will find out how I [...]
Hull City are flying high at the top of the Championship, and with Steve Bruce's policy of only playing his reserve team in Cup games they have also done very well, having played in five rounds in the League Cup, even beating Leicester City on penalties before succumbing to Man City at the Etihad, and [.
Giroud has high ambitions for Arsenal by Darren N There is nothing wrong with confidence in the Arsenal players but listening to Olivier Giroud I would say there is a fine line between confidence and madness! I agree that when Arsene Wenger used Theo Walcott as competition for the centre-forward spot the Frenchman suddenly started [.
Hull are under as much pressure as Arsenal by Sam P Arsenal fans are so wrapped up with our massive game against Barcelona on Tuesday that we are worried that we will be playing a much weakened team against Hull City in the FA Cup this weekend. But I will now explain why Arsene Wenger [...]
With two massive cup games coming up for Arsenal in the space of three days, starting with Hull City in the FA cup on Saturday, the last thing Arsene Wenger needed was more problems to deal with, so the loss of two potential centre backs in Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel to injury last weekend was [..
Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal fans have been left furious and bemused by the decision of the FA to appoint our old nemesis Mike Dean to take change of the FA cup clash with Hull City on Saturday as it surely has greatly reduced our chances of getting past the Tigers and into the next [...]
I hope that the former Arsenal captain and defensive rock is wrong but I fear that Tony Adams could be right in his assessment of what Arsene Wenger has been getting wrong recently and why our quest for the Premier League title this season could falter once again. Adams was reported by The Sun talking [.
Arsenal have just signed two young Nigerian youth international players, so it is obvious that Arsene Wenger has got scouts watching African players at the moment. Now it seems the best young player in Kenya, is also desperate to be given a chance to prove himself at the Emirates and last year he sent a [.
I know that a lot of Arsenal fans will dismiss out of hand the idea that Arsene Wenger and his lack of much action in the transfer market has helped the club to challenge for major honours. I was certainly surprised to see the Frenchman only sign the veteran keeper Petr Cech from Chelsea in [...]
I get the reason for Arsene Wenger bringing up the last time Arsenal faced our Champions League opponents Barcelona at the Emirates Stadium, as we did beat them 2-1 despite being under the cosh for a lot of the match. I'm sure the boss would take that again when Luis Enrique and his treble winning [.
Hull best team in anticipation of Barca by MHA Fans, Fans, Fans who will and when shall you be satisfied? I have been reading threads day and night, some very interesting.. some not so interesting. There was a slow down after Arsenal's win over Leicester City last weekend. I just have a few things to [.
Football and the transfer activity in the game is notoriously hard to predict, especially when you are dealing with a club like Arsenal and a manager like Arsene Wenger who seems to take a special pleasure in doing things his own way and flying in the face of popular and recognised wisdom. Having said that, [.
Just when Arsenal fans were left cursing our luck yet again after the news was revealed this morning that our Brazilian centre back Gabriel has gone back home to South America as he recovers from injury, we got some better news on the injury front from our next Premier League opponents Manchester United.
There are very few pundits, or even Arsenal fans to be frank, who believe that Arsenal really can get the better of Barcelona in the Champions League and progress to the next round. But there is a huge reason that we can, and when I say huge I am not being flippant, because the reason [...]
We do not know for sure what the Arsenal manager has in store for us at the end of the current season. There is even a theory that Arsene Wenger might even step aside if he manages to lead us to the Premier League trophy in May. Whether either of those things actually happens, though, [...]
Arsenal somehow managed to take all three points in the big Premier League game against Leicester City on Sunday despite Arsene Wenger having to cope without the two centre backs that he wanted to start against the Foxes. We still do not know the extent of the injury picked up by Gabriel in training but [.
After Danny Welbeck enjoyed a dream return to the Arsenal team with a goal after less than 10 minutes and an absolutely crucial and well taken goal as well, I have been seeing various reports suggesting that the England international is set to be rewarded for his role as super sub against Leicester with a [.
There certainly seems to be a lot of Arsenal transfer rumours around lately, despite the fact that the window will not be open again until the summer. The biggest news is that the Gunners are set to sign a contract today with the young Nigerian hitman Samuel Chukwueze, who flew to London on Monday and [.
After last night's opening Champions League games, all the talk on Arsenal websites is about our meeting with Barcelona next Tuesday, but first of all we have the small matter of a fifth round FA Cup tie against Hull City coming up. As this game is only three days before the Barca clash, everyone is [.
Everybody, even most Arsenal fans, think that the Gunners have no chance at all of beating a star-studded Barcelona side next Tuesday, but then again everybody said exactly the same thing before Bayern Munich came to the Emirates earlier in the season. I think that Arsene Wenger actually enjoys being the underdog, and is trying [.
Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players are well aware that there is still a long way to go as we chase the Premier League title this season, despite all the pretend outrage from the football media after the players had the temerity to take a happy looking team photo in the dressing room after beating [.
I am not going to be too hard on the Arsenal forward players for missing chances in the big game against Leicester City on Sunday. For one thing we did fi9nally get over the line and it was the result that really mattered in this Premier League title chasing match. And it was not just [...]
Wenger is rubbish and we always lose by Sam P I do not apologise for the title, because this is exactly the kind of comment we see on JustArsenal every day. From where I am sitting Arsenal have a fifth round FA Cup game coming up, which we should win, to put us on course [...]
The Arsenal and Germany international star Mesut Ozil created another six chances for the Gunners in the big match against Leicester City and he could have been forgiven for thinking that 60 would not have been enough to get him another assist to add to the 16 he had already made in the Premier League [.
The theory that the bigger clubs generally get the benefit of the decisions of the referee and other officials is a hard one to prove. And when you are a fan of one of those big clubs like Arsenal you will tend to feel that a contentious decision should go our way anyway. I personally [...]
Arsenal will need to repeat history in order to win the titleby KM Hello fellow Arsenal fans from around the third planet in the solar system. Are you still buzzing that Welbeck goal? It really got me, because it was the fair result and it saved our chances to get the trophy we last had [...]
Arsene Wenger has already had to cope with more than his fair share of injury and fitness problems in the Arsenal squad this season and once again at the weekend it nearly caused the Gunners a potentially fatal blow to our Premier League title hopes when we lost first Gabriel and then Laurent Koscielny.
Is it time for Arsenal fans to be worried? by briantole Where are our best players? Who is the one to stand up now? We have a lot to talk about after a very disappointing January and now not very good performances this February. Ever since the turn of the year Ozil has just capped [...]
When the referee Martin Atkinson booked the Arsenal holding midfielder Francis Coquelin for a foul that was not as bad as the one he had not booked the Leicester DM Danny Drinkwater for earlier in the game, I started to worry that the officials would have another negative effect on one of our matches and [.
What a brilliant end to an excellent game for Arsene Wenger and our players as well as us Arsenal fans. But what a nail-biter! Let's be honest, when we saw Jamie Vardy score that penalty just before half time we all thought that our season had ended right there, considering that Leicester had gone on [.
Arsenal outplayed Leicester and deserved to win. by KM Super Sunday they call it on Skysports. And they were correct this time. We faced leaders Leicester knowing that nothing but a win would realistically save our chances of clinching the title for the first time in 12 years. We started the game well and we [.
It was touch and go for 94 minutes before Danny Welbeck finally popped up with the winner for Arsenal against Leicester, but our acting captain Per Mertesacker just kept telling the team to keep believing and the winner will come. You can't say that the Gunners stopped trying to score and would have been happy [.
I was tempted to pick the Arsenal and England international forward Danny Welbeck as the Man of the Match for his last gasp winner against Leicester City just 10 minutes after making his season debut after a frustrating 10 months on the sidelines with injury. But it would have been more for sentimental reasons even [.
Ozil not leaving the Emirates. by Sam P There was some crazy rumours about Arsenal entering into contract talks with Mesut Ozil because the Gunners thought that Barcelona were interested in taking the German back to La Liga. There were even some fans on here tried to blame these unfounded rumours on Arsene Wenger as [.
If all the Arsenal fans were jumping for joy when Danny Welbeck scored our winner just ten minutes after coming onto the pitch for the first time this season, then just imagine how Dat Guy was feeling himself! He explained how hard he had to work just to get himself onto the pitch. "It's been [...]
While a lot of Arsenal fans were complaining about the performance of the referee Martin Atkinson after he awarded a debatable penalty kick to the Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy yesterday, his manager Claudio Ranieri was talking about the official for a completely different reason. The Italian suggested in his post match comments reported by [.
It used to be one of the many sticks used by the football media to beat Arsenal with in recent years, but after the season which saw the Gunners take some seriously heavy batterings away to Liverpool, Chelsea and Man City, our performances and results in the big games has got a lot better. Not [...]
It could have been worse for Arsenal fans I suppose. The Premier League could have named our old friend Mike Dean as the man in the middle for the crucial title chasing clash with Leicester City, although after his shockingly bad and biased showing against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, the football authorities had to overturn [.
It might have been a lot closer if the Chile international star Alexis Sanchez had not been on the Arsenal injury list since November, but if you were to do a poll of Arsenal fans at the minute about who the best player of the season has been so far then Mesut Ozil would win [...]
The Arsenal fans may be feeling a lot of trepidation ahead of tomorrow's game against Leicester, but I hope that Aaron Ramsey reflects the attitude that the whole of the Arsenal squad feel. I know what he means, as we are not playing Chelsea or Manchester City, and (let's be honest here) if we can't [.
Why do Fans of Other Clubs want to Protest at Arsenal Home Matches? by the Analyser An article appeared on this site indicating that Leicester fans were planning to delay entering the stadium until after five minutes to protest against TV scheduling of matches. A question was posed in the article about whether Arsenal fans [.
Even though we all want Arsenal to win this pivotal match against Leicester City in the race for the Premier League title, with lots of people saying that nothing but a win will be good enough to keep the Gunners in the hunt, I think it is just as important that we stop the Foxes [...]
You could not really have asked for a more positive start from Arsenal, as we hit the ground running in this massive match against high flying Leicester City. Good work by Ozil and Alexis Sanchez and then the Ox down the right created a chance in the opening minute and then the Chilean headed a [...]
I saw an article the other day that was talking about the Arsenal game against Leicester this Sunday and suggesting that there was going to be one key battle that would determine the result and it was the question of whether our French defender Laurent Koscielny could keep the Premier League's top scorer Jamie Vardy [.
Arsenal fans, if they are anything like me, will still be wondering why Arsene Wenger chose to start with Mathieu Flamini as the holding midfielder against AFC Bournemouth instead of the fit again Francis Coquelin. I can only assume that it was an issue about the younger Frenchman's match fitness even though Coquelin was on [.
While every Arsenal fan will be urging the players to give absolutely everything for a victory over table topping Leicester City tomorrow, our manager is often a bit more pragmatic than that and whereas we used to sometimes get caught out when throwing players forward, Arsene Wenger will now sometimes make sure of the point [.
It would be a bigger surprise than Arsenal finishing below our north London rivals Tottenham this season if the Arsenal club captain Mikel Arteta was named in the starting line up set to face the league leaders at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday. And after The Brazilian defender Gabriel started the last two games ahead [.
It was no surprise to hear Arsene Wenger talking this week about the pressure of being at the top of the Premier League, as his Arsenal side have suffered with it plenty of times, including over the last few weeks when the Gunners hit a slump after finding ourselves two points clear and in pole [...]
Danny Welbeck's return might coincide with an upturn of Arsenal's form by BT After being out for almost a year Arsenal are soon expecting Danny to be back. Now he might not be the most favourite Arsenal player among supporters but he certainly has something in him. He brings a lot more to the team [.
Many Arsenal fans have constantly complained that Arsene Wenger always chooses Per Mertesacker to partner Koscielny in defence, while our new beast Gabriel is usually left on the bench. Wenger started with the Brazilian against Bournemouth last week, but with the massive game against Leicester coming up tomorrow it is nearly certain that Wenger will [.
Wenger wants domination over Leicester by Sam P This is one game I just cannot wait to see when Arsenal take on Leicester tomorrow lunchtime. We totally dominated them in the reverse fixture when we stopped their unbeaten run with a massive 5-2 victory and we remain the only team to have destroyed the Foxes [.
There is no doubt that this is the biggest game of the season so far for both Arsenal and Leicester, and both sides will be feeling the pressure. I believe that Arsenal have the advantage though because as well as playing at the Emirates, the Leicester players will remember how we destroyed their unbeaten run [.
The Arsenal board and manager show they don't care about the fans once more by KM Well, well, Arsene you never fail to disappoint do you? In the press conference the Arsenal boss was asked about the ridiculous high prices fans pay to go to football matches (especially Arsenal with the highest ticket prices in [.
We all know that Arsene Wenger likes to plan for the future, and even though his current contract with Arsenal is due to run out at the end of next season I do not expect that to change. Even last month when the January transfer window gave the Frenchman a brilliant opportunity to sign some [...]
It is not exactly like Arsene Wenger to give his rival managers any sort of help in working out how Arsenal are planning to play ahead of a match, especially a match as important as the one against the Premier League leaders Leicester City on Sunday is. But that is exactly what the Frenchman has [...
The pricing policy at Arsenal Football Club probably looks a lot different when you are raking in something along the lines of £8 million a year as our manager Arsene Wenger does. And the fact that he does not even have to pay to go and see any football match he feels like hardly gives [...]
For the Arsenal fans out there who have never really got used to the fact that Olivier Giroud is the player picked by Arsene Wenger to be our main centre forward and to lead the line ever since the little boy inside Robin van Persie spat his dummy out and demanded to go to Man [...]
Arsenal v Leicester City Preview by AH Arsenal v Leicester Premier League, 2015-16 Date: Sunday, 14 February, 2016 Time: 12:00 BST Venue: Emirates Stadium Where to watch: Sky Sports 1 Leicester City face their second top three opponent in back-to-back games as the Premier League leaders face Arsenal the Emirates on Sunday.
Leicester City are staging a protest this Sunday, by refusing to take to the pitch for the opening five minutes of the weekend's match at the Emirates, and Arsenalfans have been asked to do the same. The crunch fixture was moved in order to satisfy the television companies, but with tickets having been on sale [.
Arsenal need a real leader on the pitch by DN As always, Arsenal captain's fall by the wayside and Per Mertesacker looks like he is going to be the next victim of the captains curse, and he is really only the second-in-command. But Gabriel would appear to have finally gained Wenger's trust and will probably [.
Okay here is the latest in our View From the Enemy series, and this review comes from the official Leicester City website. Mostly it's just team news and facts but its interesting what manager Claudio Ranieri has to say.... FOXES CAMP On a day that sees the Barclays Premier League's top four sides go head-to-head, [.
This super Sunday could decide a lot in the top 4 tussle by KM Hello everybody on this fine Friday. It's the end of the week and as the weekend approaches the focus is moving back from transfer rumours and the 'Mourinho to replace Van Gaal' story to the action that will happen at the [...]
The last time Arsenal took on the current Premier League leaders was back at the end of September and just like then, the Foxes were surprisingly ahead of the Gunners in the league table. And although another win will not be quite enough to take us above our rivals this time as it did in [...]
It looks like the very unlucky Arsenal and Czech Republic midfield star Tomas Rosicky could soon be on his own in the Arsenal treatment room, as the latest injury update from Arsene Wenger on the Arsenal website has revealed that out two other talented midfielders on the injury list have stepped up their recovery plans [.
It has not been announced or anything, so the fans of Arsenal and the other Premier League clubs can only look on in bemusement at the circus that Manchester United has become. On the one hand we have ED Woodward publicly backing the current manager and then Louis van Gaal bawling out any reporter that [.
I don't know about the rest of you Arsenal fans, but I am still scratching my head trying to figure out just what the hell Arsene Wenger was thinking by only completing the one bargain basement transfer deal on the January window, despite the club being sat on a mountain of cash and having our [...]
With the Arsenal and England forward Theo Walcott having been below par for a good few games I was not surprised to see Arsene Wenger leave him out of the Arsenal starting line up for the must win Premier League game away to Bournemouth on Sunday. But judging from the way the season has panned [...]
For quite few years now it has been the Arsenal midfield that has been the best part of our squad, even though there has been criticism of Arsene Wenger for relying too much on the same sort of small and technically gifted players like Tomas Rosicky, Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla and not enough steel [.
Tactics to use in our remainder of the season to win games by Briantole. Here are some tactics Arsenal could use in the remainder of the season to win games. A winning formula we can use. With our rich squad full of talented players how can we alternate tactics with variance to the opponents we [.
With the current holder of the Arsenal captain's armband, Mikel Arteta, having started only two games for the Gunners this season and neither of them was in the Premier League, it looks ever more likely that the curtains will close on his Arsenal career in the summer. His playing career at least as there is [.
Maybe it is the fact that Arsenal are still waiting for the England international Jack Wilshere and the Spanish international Santi Cazorla to recover from their respective injury problems, while the unlucky Tomas Rosicky picked up a ruptured thigh muscle on his return. I certainly think that if Arsene Wenger had these attacking midfield options [.
The Arsenal keeper, Wojciech Szczesny, who has spent the current season on loan with Roma in Italy, has attacked the media for their recent claims. The Polish international has started 20 of his temporary side's 24 league matches this term, and could be offered the chance to stay with the Giallorossi on a permanent basis.
I am not saying that Arsenal should be rubbish and never win the Premier League, or that we should fail to win an FA cup game at home and have to squeeze an unwanted replay into an already congested fixture list and then have that game go into extra time which we would then lose [...]
It will be a hugely disappointing summer for Arsenal fans and everyone connected with the club, except maybe silent Stan Kroenke and his bean counters, if we do not end this current campaign as Premier League title winners. But at least it will not mean that Arsenal lose our superstar striker Alexis Sanchez.
It was all about the Bellerin on the Arsenal website today, after his Arsenal team mate Joel Campbell lavished praise on the young Spaniard who he has formed an off field friendship with as well as a good understanding on the pitch as they have been operating together up and down the right flank. The [.
I might be rushing ahead a bit here and worrying over nothing, but the young Arsenal right back Hector Bellerin has already been the subject of quite a few Arsenal transfer rumours linking him with a move back to his boyhood club, even though Bellerin has always said that he is happy where he is, [..
The Arsenal and France centre back Laurent Koscielny has come a long way in his career. A bit like Jamie Vardy, the player he will be trying to stop from scoring on Sunday, Koscielny began his football life in the lower leagues but is now widely regarded as one of the best in the Premier [...]
There were extensive Arsenal transfer rumours linking the Gunners to Sporting Lisbon's brilliant midfielder William Carvalho in the summer before he was cruelly injured playing for Portugal in the U21 World Cup. Arsenal have already got Francis Coquelin, got the injury to the Frenchman showed that we have inadequate backup in the form of Matthieu [.
Jamie Vardy has bee the striking sensation of the season, since coming up through the lower leagues to help Leicester to the top of the Premier League. Now they have their most crucial top of the table game at the Emirates this weekend, and he says that him and his team simply don't think about [...]
I suggested a while ago that Arsenal needed to start the Brazilian centre back Gabriel next to Laurent Koscielny a bit more, in order to get the defender up to speed and the central defensive pairing settled in preparation for the very difficult looking double header against Barcelona in the Champions League.
I wonder if Roman Abramovich is now regretting his decision to let Arsenal sign the Czech Republic international number one to Arsenal, despite the advice from then Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho and their captain John Terry suggesting how much difference Petr Cech could make to our Premier League title challenge.
When the Arsenal and Chile international forward Alexis Sanchez limped off the pitch towards the end of our away game against Norwich City at the end of November, it was clear that it was not an injury that would allow him back just a week or two later, but at the same time it was [...]
Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players and fans will be understandably focused on what happens at the Emirates Stadium in Sunday's early Premier League kick-off. But once the dust has settled and Arsenal are hopefully celebrating a vital three points against the current league leaders Leicester City, all eyes will turn north to the Etihad [.
It has been a funny old season in the Premier League season so far, and not just for Arsenal who seem to be doing things on a month by month basis. I mean, really, if you had said at the start that in February the top two would be Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur while [...]
Arsenal's latest sponsorship deal takes hem to Kenya, which has a very large number of Gooners in their ranks. The Gunners have teamed up with SportPesa as the official betting partner in Kenya, and they will be joining together to offer club merchandise as well as tickets to go to the Emirates to see their [.
There has always been more discontent over prices of Season tickets and entrance fees at Arsenal, not only because we are the most expensive football ground to visit in the world, but because we get less rewards, in terms of trophies, for the outrageous prices our club charges. There now seems to be more willingness [.
Arsenal really can win it this year by Sam P The season before last, when Arsenal spent most of the campaign at the top of the League, but everybody (and I mean EVERYBODY, from pundits down to Arsenal fans themselves) were predicting that the Gunners would fall by the wayside and end up fighting for [.
It was totally amazing that West Ham managed to sign Dimitri Payet from Marseille in the summer for just £10.75million despite his brilliant performances in Ligue 1, where he scored 7 goals and made 17 assists for Marseille. What is more amazing is that Arsene Wenger didn't even consider bringing him to Arsenal, despite being [.
The Arsenal and Wales international star Aaron Ramsey was a key figure in the victory over AFC Bournemouth at the weekend, earning himself the Man of the Match award from the TV pundits with a performance full of energy, desire and ability and having a big hand in both goals which gave the Gunners a [.
Obviously Arsenal fans are hoping that Arsene Wenger and the players' main concern in the latter stages of the Premier League season will be getting to the top of the table and staying there, but if the Gunners are not to win the title this year then the least we want is to finish in [...]
I have a feeling that Arsene Wenger had Arsenal's next game in mind when he picked the starting line up for the away game at Bournemouth yesterday, specifically his decision to prefer the Brazilian centre back Gabriel to Per Mertesacker and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to Theo Walcott or Joel Campbell. Of course there was a great [.
Arsenal pulled themselves back to within five points of Leicester yesterday with the 2-0 win over Bournemouth. After going four games without a win it was crucial that the Gunners got back to winning ways, and Arsene Wenger admitted in the after match interview that, although it was not the best performance, it was the [.
Arsenal fans have become used to Arsene Wenger 'not seeing' crucial incidents on the pitch involving his players, but he quite clearly saw Matthieu Flamini's tackle on Dan Gosling and he believes that Flamini should have got a free kick rather than a yellow card. Wenger was asked after the game if he thought Flamini [.
I must say that although I am glad that Arsenal got the benefit of the controversial decision of a referee for a change, I feel sorry for AFC Bournemouth and their manager Eddie Howe. Really it should have been one of our previous two opponents Chelsea or Southampton that was on the wrong end of [...
If it wasn't for those pesky Spuds, to borrow a phrase from Scooby Doo, Arsenal would be involved in a top of the table clash next weekend when Claudio Ranieri brings his league leaders to north London for another crucial match in the quest for the Premier League title. If Arsenal had not managed to [.
Whoever would have thought that Arsenal would be facing Leicester in a make-or-break game at this stage of the season? But this is the reality right now and in one weeks time every single player and fan must be urging our players to do their very best to get all three points and close the [...]
Is Wenger the villain or the silent martyr by Briantole After a recent run of poor results we have all lost our minds and sanity and rightfully so. We as loyal fans deserve better. Arsenal related websites and blogs have all purred off their discontent in what goes on at AFC. And someone has to [...]
Arsene is a coward and needs to leave despite win against Bournemouth. by KM Hello everyone. How do you feel about our game against Bournemouth? I actually feel depressed even though Arsenal won. Why? We have completely abandoned our style. We had all the time in the world to correct the worst goal difference in [.
There were a few notable performances from Arsenal players as the Gunners got back to winning ways in Bournemouth yesterday, with our keeper Petr Cech, the goal scorers Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mesut Ozil and Laurent Koscielny all impressing. For me though the outstanding player was Aaron Ramsey who capped a tireless and effective all round [.
Everyone concerned with Arsenal will be happy and relieved tonight because we desperately needed to stop the rot. After a fantastic December and festive period, our Premier League title challenge seemed to have hit the skids with just three points taken from four EPL games and no goals in the last three.
After a somewhat cautious and nervous start to the game today, Arsenal scored two good goals through Mesut Ozil and the Ox and so a lot of Arsenal fans were looking forward to more of the same after the break. It had been seven years since the Gunners failed to score for the Premier League [...]
Arsenal got two first half goals and then saw out a spirited second half from Bournemouth to end the recent run without a win. The points were vital today and we now prepare for Leicester with renewed confidence and a better looking league table. But it was not the dominant performance and heavy scoreline that [.
We all know that the Arsenal and Germany international star Mesut Ozil is having obne hell of a season in an Arsenal shirt. Because of ouy loyalty to the badge, however, no matter how good we think the creative player is there is always a sense that we might just be seeing things through rose [...]
After Arsenal take on Premier League new boys AFC Bournemouth on the south coast later today, there could be even more pressure piled on Arsene Wenger and the team by Louis van Gaal and Manchester United. Hopefully Chelsea can do us a favour at Stamford Bridge and stop the Old Trafford team from winning.
Well it might not have been a massive victory for Arsenal fans in the grand scheme of things, but I must admit that I was surprised as well as delighted to see that some pressure from us long suffering supporters has actually paid off for once. As reported in the Evening Standard, the fury and [...]
Leicester or Spurs beating Arsenal to the league is the ultimate mockery of Wenger by KM Hi guys. This one will be focused on why we are in the situation where we are favored to win the title but we won't do it. There are a few reasons about this starting with the fact that [...]
Because of the unlucky rupture of his thigh muscle against Burnley last month, it is highly unlikely that our Czech Republic international star Tomas Rosicky would be able to get enough Premier League appearances this season to get a winner's medal, assuming that the Gunners do not go on to blow this chance of winning [.
After falling to fourth place in the Premier League last weekend, Arsenal have been put under even more pressure after seeing Leicester City stretch their lead at the top with an away win over Man City, while Tottenham also won to move into second spot. So this away clash with AFC Bournemouth really is a [.
This is Petr. Petr has won the Premier League four times since Arsenal last did. Petr knows that the race for the title is a marathon not a sprint. Petr keeps calm and focused and always performs under pressure. Petr is smart. Be Like Petr. This is the message that Arsene Wenger should be doing [...]
Arsene Wenger did not come out and directly criticise some of the Arsenal players that have been struggling recently, but you do not need a microscope to read between the lines of what the manager was talking to Arsenal Player about as the Gunners prepare to head south to take on AFC Bournemouth, desperately needing [.
I think it is safe to say that most Arsenal fans, if asked before the start of the Premier League weekend of matches what result they would like to see from the top of the table clash earlier, would have said that a draw between Man City and Leicester City at the Etihad was the [...]
Too Cosy at The Emirates. Things need to happen by KTB I know we are all still frustrated as to what has been transpiring to our title charge over the last few games but take all feeling and emotion away from what has happened on the field with Arsenal and actually think as to WHY [...]
Jack Wilshere has been a part of Arsenal Football Club since he was nine years old and he made his first team debut when he was just 16-years old, breaking the club record. This season will be his 8th in the first team, even though he has yet to appear this time and also missed [...]
Having not kicked a ball in anger for Arsenal since we were held to a no score draw by Chelsea at the end of April as they cruised to the Premier League title last season, Danny Welbeck is understandably being treated with kid gloves by Arsene Wenger and the medical staff, but the England international [.
It is not just the Arsenal centre forward Olivier Giroud that is responsible for putting the ball in the back of the net for the Gunners, of course, and the stats show you that the France international is actually doing his job very well this season when it comes to converting chances. Unfortunately for Arsenal [.
Arsenal are going through a mini goal drought at the moment having gone three games without a goal from anywhere. There has been much criticism of our strikers for being so wayward, but Arsene Wenger is trying to deflect criticism from his front men by declaring that there are many factors involved, and one of [.
Even if the latest Arsenal transfer rumours are true, and Arsenal are the club in pole position to secure the transfer of the Real Madrid aand Spain international star Isco in the summer, there would still be a few things that could stop the stuning transfer to north London going ahead. According to The Sun [.
Arsene Wenger has had since Tuesday night to pick up his Arsenal players after they went a fourth Premier League match without a win and three in a row without scoring a goal, so I can understand why the manager would want to instill some confidence in his squad and try to regain some belief [...]
Don't worry Arsenal fans, all that money that you spend on massively overpriced merchandise or the even more inflated cost of a pie and a pint after paying the most expensive ticket prices in the country are not just going to line the pockets of the club's owners and board members. You will be surprised [.
To be perfectly honest I am not entirely sure what to make of the Premier League stats showing the disciplinary records of Arsenal and the other 19 clubs in the division. In a way the fact that the Gunners have got the best record for discipline and would be the club to get the fair [...]
I really hope that Arsene Wenger sends the Arsenal team out with some licence to express themselves on Sunday, even though the pressure is on for us to pick up a first Premier League win since the Gunners beat Newcastle United in the first game of 2016. That win was only a 1-0 and we [...]
I must admit that I was a touch surprised to see the name of Arsenal and Brazil international defender Gabriel Armando De Abreu (yes that is his real name, Paulista is a nickname from him being from Sao Paulo like calling someone from Newcastle Geordie Dave) in the starting line up to face Southampton on [.
Oh how the football media and fans of rival clubs have milked the fact that Arsenal have had a bad month and dropped to fourth place in the Premier League table. There have been reports about groundhog day and plenty of talk about it being the same old story for Arsenal. And one of the [...]
Arsene Wenger may think that balancing the books is the right way to run a football club, although at Arsenal he does not have a lot of choice because the chances of silent Stan Kroenke putting up any of his own cash to sign players is as slim as a cigarette paper, but a lot [...]
With the terrible record that Arsenal have had with various injury problems over the last few years, even this season after Arsene Wenger appointed two key fitness and medical experts to solve the problem, you would think perhaps that the club would try to avoid bringing in any more players that are injury prone.
The loss of the Arsenal and Czech Republic midfield star Tomas Rosicky to yet another long term injury lay-off might not be seen by too many Arsenal fans as a real disaster. After all the 35-year old had not been available for the rest of the season so why should his absence be such a [...]
For Arsenal to win the Premier League title we need quite a few things to happen. Starting from the away game against Bournemouth on Sunday the Gunners need to get back to winning ways. We really need to hold our nerve and deal with the expectation of winning games against so-called lesser teams and then [.
The way that things have been going for Arsenal in recent years, I have to wonder whether Arsene Wenger has been walking under ladders while breaking mirrors, because if the Gunners did not have regular bad luck then we would have no luck at all. The latest recipient of the club's rotten fortune, Tomas Rosicky, [.
Arsene Wenger will be hoping for a few things when Arsenal head south to face the Premier League new boys AFC Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday. A first win in five EPL games will be top of the Frenchman's list of course, but after that he will be desperate for an end to [...]
Most Arsenal fans have spent the last day, or the last few weeks if you want to look at it that way, tearing our hair out in frustration and feeling angry that the Gunners look like blowing our best chance of winning the Premier League in years due to the same old failings. A limp [...]
It was not just the fact that Arsenal failed to score for the third Premier League game in a row this week that got under the skin of Arsene Wenger. It was clear for much of the disappointing draw with Southampton at the Emirates Stadium that our manager was less than impressed with some of [...]
Get a grip Arsenal fans by Sam P As Aaron Ramsey said 'It was one of those games'. Arsenal made a 1000 chances but as usual the opposing goalkeeper plays an absolute blinder. It's not the first time its happened and it certainly won't be the last, that is very very easy to predict. What [...]
We all know that stats against Southampton show that Arsenal completely dominated the game. 70% possession, 22 shots on target.. but we just couldn't score. Arsene Wenger was pleased with the performance and the energy shown by the players, but bemoans the fact that not one of them could put the ball in the net!
If this is true then I have to wonder why Arsene Wenger and his transfer team at Arsenal did not push to get this transfer deal done during the January window, so the talented striker from Serie A could have given the Gunners a timely boost as we go in search of a first Premier [...]
One of the big reasons for Arsene Wenger making Petr Cech his one Arsenal transfer of the summer was for the experience that the former Chelsea keeper would bring to the club along with his undoubted ability in between the posts. And it was not just his experience of playing for many years at the [..
It really does seem clear that Arsenal cannot cope with expectations. Every time Arsene Wenger and the players have a good run and get the team into a good position with even the heavily critical TV pundits starting to believe it could be our year, something goes wrong and Arsenal fail to live up to [.
After the Arsenal strike force failed to find the back of the net for a third Premier League game in a row, Arsene Wenger was understandably asked about his decision to not use the January transfer window to sign a striker, you know one of those players that scores goals. And as reported by the [...]
With a touch more luck, better finishing from the Arsenal forwards or a keeper that was not in such fine form as Fraser Forster, Arsenal would have gained a valuable three points and some revenge over Southampton last night. We didn't of course, but that was no fault of Mesut Ozil as the German created [.
The Arsenal boss, perhaps in response to the comments of his managerial rival Man City about the prospect of Man City winning an unprecedented four trophies this season, has been talking up the chances of the Gunners matching the very rare achievement of clubs like Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Inter Milan and Celtic in winning [.
So the Gunners have now completed three full games without putting the ball in the back of the net once, but last night against Southampton it certainly wasn't through lack of chances. The first half was a bit more even and it was Mesut Ozil that came the closest a few times and we had [...]
Just a few weeks ago, Arsenal fans were praising Petr Cech for saving the Gunners a point with a clean sheet against Stoke City, but last night's 0-0 against Southampton was a completely different kettle of fish and Cech was his usual efficient self but it wasn't him that saved the points this time. It [.
Arsene has to take responsibility and leave by KM Well I'm sorry but we are not winning the title. We are sitting 4th and with another 'New Year collapse' Wenger once again proved that his incompetence will leave us in the abyss. I really wish not to believe this is happening but that's the reality.
Things are not going well for Arsenal at the moment, especially our strikers, and whoever else finds themselves in a goalscoring position. The Gunners haven't won any of our last four League games, and we haven't scored in the last three. Theo Walcott hasn't scored since before Christmas, not to mention blowing the easy one-on-one [.
One of the very few bits of news for Arsenal fans on transfer deadline day was the signing of our young French forward Yaya Sanogo by the Championship club Charlton Athletic. A lot of us might have forgot that he was even on the club's books (or just hoped that he wasn't) but Sanogo has [...]
Well that was a pretty horrible night for Arsenal and all the Gooners watching around the world. We didn't play badly exactly but we did struggle to get our fluent and incisive game going against a very good anbd determined Southampton side. The only real positive to take from this latest disappointment is that we [.
Arsenal really need to get all three points against Southampton today to get our Premier League title challenge back on track. And after only getting two points from the last three EPL games, the prressure is on. The performances have not been too bad though and after a win in the last game against Burnley [.
By the time we get to the end of February Arsenal should be in the quarter-finals of the FA cup and we will also have a much better idea if we have got any chance of getting to the same stage of the Champions League as Barcelona will already have been to north London for [...]
If Arsene Wenger was unsure about whether to rotate among his available Arsenal forwards for the visit of Southampton tonight, I think that the last few minutes of the FA cup win over Burnley will have made his mind up. If Theo Walcott had managed to round the keeper and finish his glorious chance to [.
Anyone who has had half an eye on Arsenal Football Club in recent years will not be too surprised that the Gunners did not do a great deal of business in the January transfer window. We also know that the Frenchman is not a big fan of this halfway point and would much rather it [...]
The last time Arsenal played Southampton, just a few weeks ago, we were destroyed 4-0 in our worst result in the whole of last year. That came towards the end of the busy Xmas schedule and Arsene Wenger believes that his Gunners team were 'not fresh' mentally after a gruelling run of five wins in [..
Now we are getting to squeaky-bum time as Alex Ferguson used to say, and we are going to need as many players fit as possible, especially when Arsenal are getting closer to the Finals of the FA Cup and the Champions League, as well as pulling away at the top of the Premiership.... We have [...]
Pep a blessing in disguise? How do Arsenal break Southampton? by KM Hello everybody! This transfer window didn't disappoint! By far the biggest transfer is Pep moving to Manchester City. This puts a new perspective on the League. Next season will be quite a different story from this one. So how does that affect us?
Arsenal fans might have been frustrated by the lack of transfer business done by Arsene Wenger in the January window but at least our Premier League rivals did not do much in the way of big signings either. So it is pretty much as you were, although the Gunners have boosted the central midfield options [.
So we come back to a discussion about bogey teams and how they always give Arsenal a tough game no matter the respective League positions, well Southampton are rapidly becoming our latest bogey team. When we went to St. Mary's on Boxing Day we were on a run of 5 wins in row, and Southampton [...]
So as the clock ticks down and Arsene Wenger sits twiddling his thumbs (sorry, working hard on transfer deals I mean) in his office, it looks almost certain that the transfer of the Egypt international midfielder Mohamed Elneny will be our one and only signing of the winter window. However much we Arsenal fans might [.
The Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may have made almost 30 appearances for the Gunners already this season, but I think it is safe to say that he will not be too pleased with his contribution to the campaign so far, with more of those appearances being from the bench than not and with just seven [.
I can understand that Arsene Wenger feels that Arsenal and our challenge for the Premier League title has received a huge boost with the return from injury of Alexis Sanchez. Indeed the Chile international forward outlined his importance to the cause in his very first start at the weekend by getting an assist, a goal [.
Time is fast running out for the Arsenal and France right back Mathieu Debuchy to find himself a new club before the transfer window closes. In fact Arsene Wenger said this morning that his chance of a permanent move away from the Emirates was no longer possible in the time left. But there is still [.
Well the news that some Arsenal fans were hoping would be about us rather than our Premier League rivals Manchester City has been confirmed today. The final day of the January transfer window may have been a bit underwhelming so far but the confirmation from Man City that Pep Guardiola will be their manager next [.
It appears that, once again, Arsene Wenger has managed to pull the wool over the eyes of the Arsenal fans and the football media. Despite sniffing around for Arsenal transfer rumours (or just making them up) both before and during the January transfer window, it has now been generally accepted that the only addition to [.
The Arsenal and England international left back Kieran Giibs has been the subject of some Arsenal transfer rumours over the last week or two, as this season has seen him forced to play second fiddle to Nacho Monreal and then some reports suggesting that Arsene Wenger was looking at the transfer of the young left [.
I personally would be very surprised if Arsene Wenger allowed Matthieu Debuchy to leave Arsenal with out any real cover for Hector Bellerin while we are still fighting for three trophies this season, so I am not surprised to hear the rumour that Wenger is making a last-minute bid to sign Leicester's young defender Ben [.
If you would ask any Arsenal fan what their dream season would be, the answer would certainly be the Gunners winning the magic Treble of the Premier League, the FA Cup and the Champions League, a feat only ever achieved in England by the great Sir Alex Ferguson. Now that Arsenal's traditional rival is out [.
The Arsenal youngster Calum Chambers came to Arsenal as a right-back from Southampton, but Arsene Wenger seems to have the idea of turning him into a versatile player and was originally training him as a central defender and more recently giving him lessons in the central midfield. In yesterday's game against Burnley, he started in [.
Arsenal player returns from a long spell on the sidelines with an injury problem, plays, and picks up another injury problem. It is a story so familiar to Arsenal fans that we have stopped being surprised by it, but for some reason it always seems to take Arsene Wenger completely unaware. So this is what [.
