In this modern new world of the internet and instant information flying around the airwaves, not to mention live Arsenal football games beamed to the TVs of nearly every country in the world, it would appear that Arsene Wenger has only just realised that there are Arsenal fans everywhere that get upset when the Gunners [.
All the latest Arsenal transfer rumours have been saying that the Gunners had made PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG their top target for the summer, after the Gabon international's incredible season at Dortmund where he has already scored 32 times in this campaign. But the 26 year-old has made it clear that he has no intention of moving [.
There was some good news for Arsenal from the current international break, most notably from the fact that no more injury problems have cropped up to affect the first team players available to Arsene Wenger for the rest of the Premier League matches. However, the final round of international games have not done anything to [.
Yaya Toure's agent has claimed that he is set to open talks with other clubs about a move for his clientat the end of the season, with the DailyStar citing us as one of those interested. The Ivory Coast international has scored six goals in his 26 league outings this term, and still remains a [.
The question of who should start alongside Francis Coquelin in the Arsenal central midfield when our Premier League campaign kicks off again with the visit of Watford on Saturday will be a very easy one to answer if the rumours about Aaron Ramsey having suffered a setback to his return from injury are correct.
Arsenal have got a lot more to do than simply catch and overtake our north London rivals Tottenham if this season is to be seen as anything but a disappointing one, and with 11 points to make up on the current Premier League leaders you would have to say that Leicester City are big favourites [...
Petr Cech has revealed he is looking to concentrate on playing for Arsenal after the European Championships in France this summer. The shot stoppermade his debut for the Czech Republic back in 2002 against Hungary as a 19 year-old, and kept clean sheets in both of his opening appearances. He has come a long waysince [.
Unless the current Arsenal strikers like Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Joel Campbell go on a massive goal scoring spree over the next few weeks and months, one of the big priorities for Arsene Wenger in the summer transfer window will be to sign at least one top class forward. Many of us [.
If things go the right way for Arsenal from now until the middlw of May, then Arsene Wenger and the players will have eight 'cup-finals' with which to save the season from being a disappointment or an unmitigated disaster depending on the strength of your views. It may be that Leicester and Tottenham, or one [.
Arsene Wenger may have got the backing of the Arsenal board and our quiet and usually absent owner Stan Kroenke, but even the Frenchman must realise that the patience of a big section of the Arsenal fanbase is wearing very thin. Unless Wenger and the Arsenal team can pull off the unlikely and win the [.
While Arsenal would obviously like to be 11 points ahead of Leicester City in the Premier League table rather than 11 points worse off, there is something to be said for chasing, as the pressure is different and the Gunners have shown time and again in recent years that we do not perform too well [.
Okay we have had practically a full season of hate directed towards Arsene Wenger from disaffected Arsenal fans after every imperfect game, or draw or defeat, but all the bluster has had no effect whatsoever on the manager or the Arsenal Board. Wenger thinks that, if anything, it could have destabilised the players while they [.
We have seen this Arsenal team play like world-beaters at certain times this season, like against Manchester United and Bayern Munich at the Emirates and Olympiakos away, but then at other times we have seen them lacking energy and desire like against Swansea and Southampton. On the other hand Leicester City have been fighting for [.
Barcelona's Arda Turan has taken a side-swipe at Arsenal, by claiming he thoughthe would end up at the Emirates, if he had not turned out good enough to pay for the Blaugrano. The Turkish international joined the Catalan club last summer, but had to wait until January of this year before being registered to play, [.
Olivier Giroud goes through purple patches where he scores in nearly every single game, but then he seems to hit some confidence wall and suddenly he can't hit a barn door from two yards away. Last season the turning point came immediately after the Frenchman was publicly criticized by Thierry Henry on live tv, where [.
If there is an agreement in place between Arsenal and England over the amount of game time that Danny Welbeck would see during the current international break it would only be a verbal arrangement in the form of a gentleman's agreement. So there would be nothing really stopping Roy Hodgson from going back on it [.
The international break has given us limited newsto report on, so we thought we'd delve into the rumours that are circulating around our beloved club. Arsene Wenger has recently claimed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is not currently on his wanted list, but that has not stopped the media from linking us with his arrival this summer [.
BBC Sport reporter Simon Stone has claimed that Arsenal are close to confirming the signatureof Domingos Quina from Chelsea. The 16 year-old midfielder joined the Blues in 2012, having previously trained with Benfica for two years, and is hotly tipped to have a bright future in football. He alerted a host of clubs to his [.
Manchester United and Arsenal are set for a huge battle to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer, the Express has quotedLe10Sportas reporting. Arsene Wenger is claimed to be ready to do all it takes to sign the striker, with a willingness to pay as much as £63.2 Million in order to do so.

Arsene Wenger should certainly be used to the annual protests from Arsenal fans that think he has outstayed his welcome at the club, and one of his most vociferous critics over the last few years has been the TV motormouth Piers Morgan, who regularly calls for Le Prof to resign like many knee-jerk fairweather fans.
Ozil complains about Arsenal signings unlikely to be heard. by KM Well, well! Pretty damn hello everybody. What's that I'm hearing? Ozil came out to say we need some reinforcements! No way Mesut, I mean do you read Justarsenal? This is really interesting! Because it puts us in a familiar situation!
A year or so ago you would not have given Arsenal FC a snowball's chance in hell of being able to sign the young centre back Rafael Varane from his current club, as the French international was a regular starter for Real and was drawing rave reviews for his performances in Spain and around Europe.
Arsenal fans are more than used to seeing our injured stars taking ten times longer to recover than their predicted return dates, especially with Jack Wilshere who has been projected to return every month since Christmas, but the Gunners were certainly expecting our injury list to be reduced after this international break.
Mesut Ozil claims Arsenal are still in with a chance to be champions this season, but insists that money must be spent on reinforcing the side this summer. The playmakerhas been talking to the press in Germany this week, having travelled to his homeland to play against England and Italy, and has opened up about [.
Aaron Ramsey is currently out injured, but Chris Coleman is determined to take him to the European Championships this summer. The midfielder has proved to be one of the key men in Wales international side, helping them to qualify for the upcoming tournament with two goals and two assists in the group stages.
Unless the Arsenal board and Arsene Wenger were to have a drastic change in the way they spend money on transfer fees and wages, you would generally assume that we would lose out in a toe-to-toe transfer battle with a big spending club like Manchester United. So when the football media started reporting that the [.
Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger have not got very happy memories about the last time we tried to do a piece of transfer business with our Premier League rivals Liverpool. They could have just said no to the offer of £40,000,001.00 for their striker Luis Suarez but instead they spread it all over the press [.
Arsene Wenger has already suggested that Arsenal will need to be just about perfect in the rest of the Premier League matches before the end of the season. The results will at least and even that may not be enough, but all the Gunners can do now is win our games and hope. So the [...]

Arsenal fans have become very frustrated with Theo Walcott's inconsistencies this season, but manager Arsene Wenger feels very differently. The French boss has moved to rule out a possible exit for the under-fire forward, who joined the club from Southampton back in 2006. Walcott started the campaign very well, providing Giroud with stiff competition for [.
Just a few of years ago, after the "homegrown" rules were tightened up in the European Leagues, Arsene Wenger promised to build an "English core" of players, educated in the Arsenal academy and taught to play the Arsenal way. There were lots of home-based players coming through and signed up to long-term contracts.
There are plenty of international games still to be played and this Arsenal fan will not be able to relax until the last ball has been kicked by our international players, most likely by Alexis Sanchez or David Ospina whose nations both play World Cup qualifiers in the early hours of Wednesday morning in South [.
Arsenal fans got just what we wanted from our internationals tonight as both Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud started for France in their friendly game away to the Netherlands.

German international Mesut Ozil was recently claimed to be keen on an exit from Arsenal FC, but the playmaker has today rubbished such rumours. The 27 year-old was claimed to have spoken to his agent about a possible exit, whilst being said to be unwilling to stay at the Emirates unless Arsene Wengerwas moved on.

And with the Gunners already struggling to cope with a lengthy injury list and with the [.

It was revealed by the Nigeria coach Samson Siasia that Arsenal's newest Academy graduate, Alex Iwobi, had been rushed to hospital with food poisoning after eating a dodgy salad since his arrival in Abuja, but it would appear that the 19 year-old has made a full and rapid recovery. Yesterday the Nigerian Football Federation issued [.
Jamie Redknapp has revealed that Thierry Henry is a big fan of Arsenal youngster Alex Iwobi, and has highlighted his attitude as his strong point. The 19 year-old has hit the ground running in the first-team this season, earning the right to start matches away at Everton and Barcelona in recent weeks.
Olivier Giroud is reported to be a target for Italian champions Juventus, andI for one am intrigued as to whether Arsenal would be willing to cash-in. The Frenchman has been in-and-out of the starting XI this season, with Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck having enjoyed runs in the central striker role.
I have to feel a bit sorry for the Arsenal midfield star Francis Coquelin, as he has been ignored once again by Didier Deschamps, the manager of the France national team. We can only hope that this latest snub will inspire the 24-year old on to even greater efforts for the Gunners. I can sort [...

A supporter owned Arsenal FC by JC At a recent speech at MIT Sports Conference in Boston, Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke told the audience: "For me, being an individual owner, I have to have some sort of reality involved. If you want to win championships then you would never get involved." It should serve as [.

The post Has bad luck or bad finishing been hardest on Arsenal?
Arsene Wenger has had to perform a delicate balancing act with the Arsenal squad, with an FA cup quarter final and a Champions League knockout game in Barcelona before an early kick off in a crucial and difficult Premier League trip to Everton. It was clear from his team selection tonight that he did have [.
You could be forgiven for thinking that the Belgian international defender Vincent Kompany was on the books of Arsenal with the amount of time he misses with various injury problems, but we have enough of our own to worry about. Things are looking up on that front at least, with just the Everton game to [.
It's taken Mohamed Elneny a few months to settle into the Arsenal team since his arrival in January, but he certainly came of age in last night's defeat in Barcelona. Even when he made his debut for the club in the FA Cup against Burnley, we all saw that the Egyptian was keen to take [...]

That is a great quote that perhaps Arsenal fans could have been using all this season. It's the usual story; Arsenal play well and create lots of chances, but our strikers fail to put them away, then our inferior opponents nick a couple of goals and take the points. I'm not sure if we could [...]

How would you describe Arsene Wenger's character? by Briantole Stubborn, deluded, arrogant, greedy. That is what most Arsenal fans will tell you at the moment. Wenger has been too much of a gambler.

In last summer's transfer window, Arsenal Wenger assured all of us Arsenal fans that the club did not have a striker problem, and Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott, Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck were all world class and had more than enough firepower to win the League title. This has proven to be patently wrong and, [.

To paraphrase the old TV show to suit Arsenal, in 1996 a crack football team was formed by Arsene 'Hannibal' Wenger and they went on to take the English Premier League by storm and become invincible.

Arsenal's billionaire owner Stan Kroenke has been discussing his best business practises at a conference in the United States, and talking about Arsenal and his other sports teams he admits that it is more important for the club to turn a profit than to spend all their earnings on buying the best players.

Arsenal's recent slump came to the fore when the Gunners failed dismally against Hull at the Emirates, which forced Arsene Wenger's squad to need to visit Hull last night, but despite the well-known lack of confidence from the Gunners they turned things around spectacularly and battered the Tigers 4-0 in the replay.

Strangely enough, Arsenal finally have a good day for our strikers with both Giroud and Walcott scoring twice each, but despite our clean sheet our defence now has even bigger problems for the crucial Premiership run-in.

Everyone Arsenal fan was very happy to see Olivier Giroud finally get back on the scoresheet after 11 barren games were pointing to a total lack of form, but in my view the last two goals by Theo Walcott outshone the Frenchman by a mile.

What on earth was Mike Dean thinking today? The referee has regularly been talked about as having a bit of a penchant for making decisions that hurt Arsenal, like the infamous Diego Costa, Koscielny and Gabriel incident in our game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Arsene Wenger was subject to some abuse from the Arsenal fans as they slumped to a demoralising third defeat in a row against a depleted Swansea team at the Emirates last week, and according to a report in the Express this has led to the Arsenal Directors to seriously consider asking the 66 year-old to [.
Tottenham Hotspur were supposed to be on a great run and have their best chance ever to pull away from Arsenal in the Premier League table, but instead the Gunners fought like lions and were cruising until we lost Francis Coquelin. Our acting captain Per Mertesacker believes that the Gunners played the "perfect away game" [.
Francis Coquelin really made it hard for Arsenal against Tottenham yesterday by getting sent off early in the second half, but he has apologized profusely and honestly believes that he thought he would get the ball. Ten minutes later Arsenal were 2-1 down and I bet you that he was sitting on his own in [.
Arsenal fans were understandably worried when we heard that the vastly experienced and talented keeper Petr Cech was ruled out for the next few weeks with a calf injury.

Who is a Santi Cazorla? by Usmanov Answer: A Santi Cazorla is a highly intelligent, talented and industrious Arsenal midfielder who is able to play the deep-lying central midfield role to perfection. His talent is most suited to teams that like to control games while at the same time effectively transitioning from defense to attack.
Arsenal went into half-time with a 1-0 lead and were playing very well, but just ten minutes into the second half Francis Coquelin decided to execute a crazy challenge on Harry Kane and got a second yellow to add to his first half caution. Within another 10 minutes Arsenal were 2-1 behind! Arsene Wenger revealed [.
The Arsenal and Colombian international keeper David Ospina has not exactly had his greatest of seasons so far, but Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal fans are now left hoping that the second choice Gunners stopper can step up and save our season from going right down the pan after the news that we are going [.

CAN WE STOP LYING TO OURSELVES? AT LEAST FOR ONCE? by Usmanov There is a little caveat to this piece: It is that I do not in any way claim that I know exactly what is the entire cause of Arsenal's problem(s). Neither am I privy to the inner workings of the club. I am [...]
Wenger hits back on the Arsenal fans again, and of course it's always the same. by KM Wow that fraud of a manager called Arsene Wenger hit back at Thierry Henry who said that the Arsenal fans are angrier than ever and at least from my opinion that is very true. "They were less patient [...]
Players that should leave Arsenal this summer by Mo I know everyones thoughts are focused on the NLD tomorrow, but I have been thinking a little farther ahead about what Arsenal need to do in the summer. The fans and the media are everyday talking about what players we need to bring in, but very [...
While Arsenal really needed to win this north London derby to get our title challenge firmly back on track, a draw was not the worst result and considering the circumstances I think it can be considered as a pretty good result. It could have been better and Arsene Wenger may well be cursing his luck, [.
The most important game by far coming up for Arsenal is the latest instalment of the north London derby. A clash with Tottenham is always a big and important game, often more so for us fans than it is for the players, and it is made even bigger when there is something to play for. [...]
We normally have a couple of infographics before big games and this will be no exception, but usually we find that the Gunners stats are usually better than our opponents even against Barcelona! But tomorrow's game against Spurs is not looking as positive as usual, either for our midfielders comparison from FootballFanager, or for [.
By the time that Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players jump on a plane to Spain and prepare to play the away leg of our Champions League knockout tie, we will hopefully all be feeling a bit better about life and a bit more confident in the team, but even if the Gunners do win [...]
Obviously there was huge pressure on Arsenal to bounce back from the defeat at Old Trafford with two good wins and six valuable points from the next two Premier League matches. And now that we have lost the first of those last night at home to Swansea City the pressure on Wenger and the team [...]
You could see it on the faces of the Arsenal players like Olivier Giroud, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez last night in the home game against our perennial pains in the neck Swansea City, as chance after chance went begging and the passes started to go astray as well. At first it was frustration and [.
While Arsenal have not been getting what we deserved for some pretty good and certainly dominant performances at times this season, our Premier League rivals Manchester United have been generally awful but have somehow picked up points fairly steadily. And now that the Gunners have hit a really sticky patch at the same time that [.
It is blindingly obvious to everyone that the Arsenal players have lost something in the last couple of months. At the beginning of the season we could all see the desire in their eyes every time they played, but now they don't even believe they can beat the Hull City or Swansea City reserves at [...
A POSITIVE outlook on the current situation. by AP If you are looking to read an article about how dire the situation is at Arsenal, how Wenger should be fired, how Ramsey is killing our team, how Theo is the invisible man; read every other piece on Arsenal over the last week. I get it. [...]
This is in the news at the moment because Roy Hodgson has just announced that there is still a chance that Arsenal's Jack Wilshere could still take his place in the England team this summer, despite not having kicked a ball for the Gunners this season. Wilshere's latest forecast is that he will be back [.
Why Leicester City WON'T win the league. by AP Leicester City sit 3 points clear of Tottenham, and 6 above Arsenal at the top of the League table. They are the bookmakers odds on favorites to win the league. They have been a giant killer, and at this stage agreed upon by the masses to [...]
The Arsenal manager suggested after the loss to Swansea City that the reason that the Costa Rican forward Joel Campbell was the first Gunner to be replaced was that he was tiring after not playing too much first team football recently. Maybe he was but I did not notice and I think that Arsene Wenger's [.
If I had written my Arsenal player ratings last night or this morning then all of the Gunners would be getting ones and twos because I was livid but in the cold light of day I can hopefully be more rational. Campbell gets the nod for his all round performance as well as the peach [...]
After Arsenal beat the Premier League leaders Leicester City almost three weeks ago it looked like the Gunners were firing again and the title was in our grasp once more but instead of pushing on from there the Arsenal fans have been hit with four disappointing results. So it is incredibly hard for anyone concerned [.
Arsenal fans that have been following the fortunes of the club for a few years might not be too surprised to hear about the setback suffered by Santi Cazorla on his road to recovery, but I do think that we should be extremely worried about it, especially if The Mirror is right with their suggestion [.
The famous Arsenal winning run at the end of the season seems to have petered out, and it looks like the third season in a row where the Gunners are spectacular for half a season and then rubbish for the other half. This is our third defeat in a row in all competitions for the [...]
Anything is still possible for Arsenal by Sam P Okay Arsenal yet again played against a makeshift team at the Emirates, it it is not the end of the world in this season of shifting tides and crazy results. Leicester had only drawn on Tuesday, Tottenham got beat by West Ham, Man City got slaughtered [.
Arsenal are on their worst losing run for six years with back to back defeats against Barcelona, Man United and now Swansea, all in the space of eight miserable days. This is supposed to be the time of the season when Wenger gets all his injured players back and everyone is on form, and the [...]
Wenger weak, incapable, exposed, beaten again, immortal by KM I don't know how much more proof you need that Wenger is not good enough. I mean what sort of defeat will it take for people to understand that? He is just s#@# and needs to be replaced. I cannot believe there are still people [...]
Arsenal badly need a lucky break by Sam P When Arsenal traveled to face Southampton at the end of December with the chance to go top of the Premier League it was certainly a bad night and the below par performance was heavily punished by a 4-0 defeat. But Arsene Wenger was still right to [...]
Well that was about as bad as we could have feared from Arsenal, as we lost to a Swansea City side weakened by a lot of changes as they planned for their next game which is a relegation six pointer with Norwich. Getting nothing from this must win game is surely the final nail in [...]
If Arsenal fans were looking for any help as the struggling Gunners aim to get our Premier League title challenge going again, perhaps you will see the fact that Swansea City will be without their manager Francesco Guidolin as a good omen. He is not seriously ill but has been taken in with a chest [.
Arsene Wenger mentioned the lack of fluency in English of the Arsenal and Brazil international defender Gabriel again this week, reported by the Evening Standard, after the centre back was widely lambasted in the football press for his part in the two goals of the young Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford.
Arsene cares little about what people think, nothing new though. KM Well, well. That shameless excuse of an Arsenal manager struck once again with this statement "People have opinions, but it's only opinions. They are like the weather forecast". Wow Arsene, do you know that the weather forecast is most of the time correct?
There is no doubt about it. There has been a vast wave of anger directed at the Arsenal players, and most of all at Arsene Wenger, in the few days since the defeat at Old Trafford. Has it been productive? That is the big question... Wenger thinks that the anger shouldn't come from the fans [...]
I know that most Arsenal fans will think I'm joking when I continually say that Jack Wilshere will not play at all this season, but every time Arsene Wenger talks about him it is only to tell us of the Englishman's latest setback. Just over a month ago Arsene told us that Jack had started [...]
Why I am worried about Swansea by DN Swansea are currently only three points above the relegation zone and it seems a bit strange after their excellent form of the last few seasons, but the fact is that right now they will be looking to put some daylight between themselves and the other contenders so [.
Ahead of the home game for Arsenal against Swansea City this evening, Arsene Wenger has been speaking about how important it is for everyone connected to the club to stick together through thick and thin, clearly accepting that it is mostly thin at the moment. After the painful Old Trafford reverse against Manchester United made [.
It's time to get back on track by Sam P So Arsene Wenger reckons Arsenal have had a bad week. If you had been reading this site in the last few days you would think that the defeat by Manchester United last weekend has sent Arsenal down to the murky depths of the Conference League! [...]
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 [.
