Despite the suggestions not long ago from some disgraced doctor that some Arsenal players had been among his clients for illegal performance enhancing drugs, Arsenal have not to my knowledge ever had a player fail a drug test. Arsene Wenger has also been one of the most vocal and consistent managers to talk about the [.
While a lot of the talk ahead this Premier League match has been about the protests planned by three different Arsenal fan groups, the comments about this from Arsene Wenger and the debate about the manager, the board and the owner Stan Kroenke and who is to blame for our problems, the Gunners do have [.
A lot of Arsenal fans have started to look at the huge salary that Arsenal play to Arsene Wenger every year as one of the biggest, if not the main, reason for the Frenchman's stubborn refusal to accept that things are not working and that we need a change at the top. I am certainly [...]
I have absolutely no problem with the protests planned by Arsenal fan groups for the home game against Norwich City tomorrow. Despite counting myself on the side of those fans that still respect the prof for his years of service I do agree that something has to change and it is our right to let [...]
Okay so things should get very interesting at the Emirates Stadium tomorrow, where Arsenal play host to a Norwich City side fighting for their Premier League survival. There was already going to be protests from the Arsenal fans about how the club and the groundhog day of a season and the need for either Arsene [.
I very much doubt whether the attempt by Arsene Wenger to curtail the planned protest from Arsenal fans today will have any effect, unless his ill advised decision to suggest that the Gunners' failures at home were down to the atmosphere created by the fans rather than their lack of grit, ability, spirit or tactics [.
Arsene Wenger revealed yesterday that, although Santi Cazorla and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are not exactly 100 percent match fit after coming back off the injury list, he does have the full squad of Arsenal players to choose from. The fact that this is the first game this season when he has been able to say that [.
Long standing Arsenal supporter has had enough by PH Hi Fellow Gooners Last year I gave up my season ticket. As this season draws to a close I share the frustration of all Gooners. I am sure we are all more embarrassed than disappointed, as we have let a workmanlike but unexceptional team like Leicester [.
We will have to see what effect, if any, the protests from Arsenal fans at the Norwich game today, in the press and social media and in the two Premier League games still to come will have on the Arsenal board and our glorious leaders Stan Kroenke and Arsene Wenger, but you get the impression [...]
The Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has finally made his first appearance for the Arsenal senior side this season and is likely to see more action in the home game against Norwich City today. His fitness if Arsene Wenger was to want to play Wilshere from the start either should not be a concern as the [.
I am manipulating you against the Arsenal team! Or at least Arsene says so! by KM Wow, BOOM! Arsene just straight forward blamed the fans for the teams failure! And worse he used some pretty strong words and more lies. "We have to realise that, away from home, we are championship winners. At home, against [.
Arsenal host Norwich City at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday evening, in what could prove to have a huge impact at both ends of the table. The Canaries come into the match having dropped into the relegation zone only last week, and with only three matches remaining after this one, they will be desperate to [.
Should Arsenal swap Walcott for Bacca? by DN There has been a number of clubs linked with an interest in signing Theo Walcott, and I have my own idea on how his exit could benefit us the most. The England international has been disappointing since returning from injury in December, and has become themost criticised [.
While Arsenal fans will be hoping for some top quality transfers during the summer window, I do have some sympathy with Arsene Wenger. Gooners have become increasingly mistrusting of the boss and his talk of how it is hard for him to find the right players that are actually available but there is some truth [.
I can't believe that it is just two weeks since I wrote an in-depth article to all Just Arsenal readers after a comment asked me "Which side am I on?". This is usually caused by the accusation that I delete far more "anti-Wenger" comments than others. The fact that at the moment probably over 60% [..
After the promising first half of the season from Arsenal and France centre forward Olivier Giroud has turned into something of a nightmare for him and for the team's chances of winning a trophy this season, a top class striker is sure to be on the minds of most Arsenal fans during the summer and [..
After some lively discussion this morning, there have been many Arsenal fans saying that they only feel like abusing Arsene Wenger rather than discuss other topics on the site, so someone (thanks Aldo and whateversid!) came up with the idea of a dedicated post purely for the readers to insult Wenger (still no swearing) or [.
Arsenal's days of allowing our big players to leave and join rivals is over as far as I'm concerned, but with a number of underachieving players linked with exits, I urge the club not to sell toany close rivals. Pep Guardiola has today been linked with a move to sign Theo Walcott this summer, but [.
Arsene Wenger is clearly well aware about the protests being planned by the angry Arsenal fans for our Premier League match against struggling Norwich City at the Emirates stadium tomorrow, because the manager today issued a sort of rallying cry asking for us to support the team as he tries to avoid the complete disaster [.
Arsene Wenger today revealed that every single member of his first-team squad is available for the upcoming league fixture, which is a first for the campaign. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Santi Cazorla have been back in full training for this week, meaning there are no longer any playersforced to sit on the sidelines, and the pair [.
Arsenal are claimed to be ready to offer Zlatan Ibrahimovic a two-year contract, to make the move from Paris Saint-Germain this summer. The Swedish superstar is out of contract at the end of the term, and is believed to be keen to continue playing at the top level.Zlatan is said to have turned down a [.
Atletico do it again to further push point of what are Arsenal doing? by KM Hello everybody! Ah the Champions League we all so desperately fight for! Or At least Arsene does for that precious fourth spot! And when he gets it, next year we face up Bayern or Barcelona and exit the competition. But [.
The debate about our manager and who might take over will continue to rage among Arsenal fans, of course, for as long as Arsene Wenger is still in charge. A good summer transfer window from the Frenchman and a good start to next season will help to calm down the calls for Wenger to step [...]
Arsenal face relegation-threatened Norwich City at the Emirates tomorrow as we continue our fight to remain in the Champions League places. The Canaries are fighting for their lives so it will certainly not be easy, but, on the bright side, Arsene Wenger will have a full squad available for selection for the first time this [.
In the five games that Arsenal have played so far in the month of May, our Costa Rican international forward Joel Campbell has made just brief appearances from the bench, spending about 15 minutes in total. They were also at the end of the games against Watford and West Brom with the wins for Arsenal [.
At the same time that we are hearing from the Arsenal and Spain star Santi Cazorla some hints that he might be going back to Spain's La Liga to play for his former club Villarreal at some point, there are the reports that the Gunners have not yet managed to persuade our two best players [...]
Two former Gunners have been in the football press this week talking about Arsenal and giving the under fire boss Arsene Wenger some advice on what he needs to do in the summer transfer window to make sure that we are serious title contenders next season. Ray Parlour is no doubt what the Frenchman's priority [.
Whether or not Arsene Wenger can persuade Riyad Mahrez to sign for Arsenal or convince the champions elect Leicester City to sell us the man just voted the PFA Player of the Year for this season is another matter, but i8f the Arsenal transfer rumours are right then the boss is at least going to [...]
Ever since the Arsenal fans accepted that our team was not going to win the Premier League title this season, whether that was after losing back to back games against Man United and Swansea, the draw with West Ham or even much earlier, most of us have transferred our title hopes to Leicester City and [.
N'Golo Kante has been told that he will be allowed to leave Leicester City this summer, once they find a replacement, opening the door for a move to Arsenal or Chelsea. The midfielder earned a place in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year this season, as well as receiving huge plaudits from Manchester [.
Only last summer Arsenal managed to complete the shock transfer of the talented and experienced Czech Republic international Petr Cech from our Premier League rivals Chelsea, despite the fact that their manager at the time Jose Mourinho wanted to block the move and their captain John Terry warned about the huge helping hand it would [.
The Romford Pele himself, Ray Parlour, has been giving his thoughts on Arsenal and the season which is now drawing to a close with the usual fight for fourth place when we all expected and hoped for so much more from the Gunners this time. He stopped short of blaming the boss, even though he [...]
Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has revealed that he would like to play for Villarreal again in the future. The 31 year-old is nearing a return from injury at present, having fallen foul of injury back in November, and will be keen to prove his fitness in time to be picked for the European Championships.
The former Arsenal and England international midfield star Ray Parlour sounds to me as though he has a lot of sympathy with the frustration that has been boiling over for a large section of Arsenal fans this season, but he also sounds like he thinks we would be wasting our time with the planned protest [.
I am going out on a limb here and assuming that Arsene Wenger will now accept that some of the current Arsenal squad are not good enough, and to have any chance of winning the Premier League title next year he will have to add some real top quality players in the summer transfer window. [...]
If Arsenal fans do not get their wish and get a new manager in to replace Arsene Wenger before the start of next season, then at least we want the Frenchman to take notice of our anger and frustration, see the reasons behind it and do something about it. That means spending some real money [...]
I don't know if you saw it earlier this month Arsenal fans, but the details of the Brazil international star Neymar's contract with La Liga giants Barcelona were leaked and although the fantastic forward cost the Catalan club a lot of money to sign him from previous club Santos in Brazil, his wages are surprisingly [.
Arsenal fan groups announce riots? Interesting times for sure! by KM Well, well, a happy good day to you all! By far the best news for me is coming from the fact that three of the Arsenals biggest fan groups the Arsenal Supporters club, the Black Scarf movement and REDaction have released statements that [.
With Arsenal fan groups already planning a concerted protest during the Premier League game against Norwich City on Saturday evening, with the board and the major shareholder Stan Kroenke as well as Arsene Wenger being the target, it is pretty clear that we are not happy little Gooners at the minute.
Arsenal fans have grown increasingly frustrated with their lack of progression in recent seasons, and the surprising revelations of Leiecester has only enhanced their anger. Supporter groups AST, REDaction and theBSM have all agreed to participate and promote a protest during the upcoming league fixture against Norwich City.
HOW ARSENAL CAN BUILD A CHAMPION SIDE? by N.O. It feels like that. That Arsenal just managed to snatch a title loss from what was supposed to be a win. The title of this article is controversial in gooner town, for in the last 12 years we have failed to do just this and we [...]
Of course it would be much better for Arsenal fans if we were still involved in the Champions League, but unfortunately for us we got arguably the toughest draw in the first knockout phase and when we faced Barcelona in that double header they were at the peak of their powers and had not hit [...]
Just when it looked like the season, for Arsenal fans at least, was all neatly wrapped up with disappointment as wrapping paper and with a nice big ribbon of despair to top it off, a light has appeared at the end of the tunnel. It is only a faint light as yet but it does [...]
There was not a great deal of fuss from the Arsenal fans last week when the football media started to report that our England international star was going to be one of the current crop of Gunners to be moved out of the club during the coming transfer window. Perhaps it was the fact that [...]
We have all heard from players, including a wide number of Arsenal stars, after a poor performance or result that they have let the manager and the fans down. I have said it myself a number of times when trying to defend Arsene Wenger after a disappointment that it is not as if he sends [...]
Of course I want Arsenal to win things, but not at any price. That is why I was never among the Arsenal fans who would have liked to see Jose Mourinho replace Arsene Wenger as the boss. He may well have been successful in his career but that 'win at all costs' mentality that has [...]
Where I feel Arsene broke the bond with the fans. by KM Hello Arsenal fans once more. What a turn of the tides has happened since 2010. If back then you said a bad word about Arsene you would be banned as absurd and ridiculous. Back in that season we were close or maybe even [...]
The German international Mats Hummels has been the subject of numerous Arsenal transfer rumours over the years, and it now looks like we will have to buy him this summer or give up completely. The Dortmund centre-back is now 27 and as Wenger believes that defende'rs careers last much longer than attackers, he is probably [.
I am not quite as angry with Arsene Wenger as many Arsenal fans appear to be, with the number joining the ranks of the AOBs seemingly growing on a game by game basis. I can at least sympathise with the problems that the Frenchman has had to face this season, from the bad luck of [...]
Even Arsene Wenger admitted that his Arsenal side are in danger of missing out on our usual Champions League place and having to play in the dreaded Europa League next season, after the Gunners terrible second half of the season continued with the bore draw against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
The Arsenal and Germany international star's Premier League assist tally is still stuck on 18 for the season, meaning that he has just three games left to get the three more he needs to break the EPL record of 20 currently held by our very own Thierry Henry. Considering that the German play maker has [.
After the latest on pitch disappointment from Arsenal, which saw the Gunners fail to break down an obdurate Sunderland side and head back to north London with just a point, Arsene Wenger admitted that he was worried that the Gunners could fail to finish in the top four and make it into the Champions League.
Another season is almost over for Arsenal and as well as it being another year without a Premier League title for the fans to celebrate, we have once again been subjected to some, let's say below par finishing from the forwards. Giroud had looked in the first half of the season as if he might [...]
It does still seem that the continued future of Arsene Wenger as the Arsenal manager is firmly in the hands of the Frenchman. The board seem quite happy to let the manager dictate the terms of his own departure and it looks like the only thing that will see Wenger not complete the final year [...]
Arsenal is dead with Wenger in charge and I am serious about it. by KM You know what? Arsene is relying on the fact United won't manage to win their games, but in terms of forcing his own destiny he is just rolling the dices. This was a typical Arsene game, because you know what, [...]
It might seem a bit odd to pick the Arsenal keeper as the Man of the Match in a game in which the Gunners' biggest disappointment was not making the most of the chances we created but if it had not been for the agility and ability of Petr Cech we could have come away [...]
Arsene Wenger has revealed his concern about a possible failure to finish within the top-four. Arsenal could only manage to pick up six points from their last four matches, allowing Manchester United to close the gap to within five. The Red Devils have played a match less, and only one slip up from the North-London [.
As an Arsenal fan I have spent the last few weeks cheering on Leicester City because as soon as it was clear that Arsene Wenger would not be picking up the Premier League trophy in May, the only small consolation I could take was if it did not end up in north London at the [...]
Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger have a lot to thank the FA cup for, especially over the last couple of years when it provided the trophy that had been so elusive since a winning penalty by Patrick Vieira in 2005 brought the last piece of silverware to the club for almost a decade. And I [...]
Despite the fact that Arsene Wenger has been speaking recently about Arsenal fighting until the end of the season, he was well aware that any chances of us challenging for the Premier League title had long gone. So I don't really understand why the boss was surprised at the downbeat atmosphere at the Emirates stadium [.
It was a slightly strange first half, with both sides needing to win you might have expected an open game but even though the home side's need was greater they seemed content to soak up pressure. Maybe it was the nerves though, as after a totally dominant opening 10 minutes from Arsenal they did start [.
Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger could be forgiven for thinking that Stoke are determined to cause the Gunners problems this season. It was back in mid January when Arsenal travelled to the Potteries to face Mark Hughes´ side looking to get back to the top of the table after drawing with Liverpool. As it happened [.
Arsene Wenger will hopefully not have to look for any reasons why Arsenal do not win away against relegation threatened Sunderland tomorrow, as we really need a good performance and the right result from the lads to go back above Man City and take a step closer to ensuring that we have a place in [..
A positive and optimistic view of Arsenal, the current campaign and the chances of Arsenal winning the Premier League title in next season might not carry as much weight when it comes from one of players in the Arsenal squad, but the reason suggested by Per Mertesacker for the struggles of the Gunners this season [.
There have been plenty of football managers linked with the Arsenal job down the years. Every time the team is on a bad run or puts in a lacklustre performance or simply does not get the right result, we hear the calls of Wenger out again. They died down a bit in the last two [...]
Theo Walcott has come under increased scrutiny in recent months, and Arsene Wenger has now revealed he could be sold. The England international has not started in the Premier League since Arsenal lost 3-2 to Manchester United at Old Trafford at the end of February, and has been restricted to under an hour of minuted [.
Arsenal need all three points from the trip north to face Sam Allardyce and his Sunderland side today, in order to go back above Man City into third place. A point would not be a disaster as it would put us five points ahead of the Champions League chasing Manchester United, but to avoid a [...]
After the collapse of the latest Arsenal Premier League title challenge made it 12 years since the invincibles squad was the last Arsenal side to be crowned champions of England, Arsenal fans will be lining up to tell you all of the mistakes that have been made by Arsene Wenger. The list of options is [.
We all know and appreciate the brilliant job that Arsene Wenger did in keeping Arsenal in the top four and always earning us a place in the Champions League group stage for the 10 years or so that he had to run the club on very little money for transfer fees and wages. And the [...]
Its 3rd again... Changes are needed! by Koss the Boss We have managed to keep ourselves in a good position for the Champions league places again and this happens year after year but according to most, Wenger still knows best! He never wins the big ones anymore and nothing will change on the pitch front [.
Tony Pulis would, I am sure, have been delighted to add to the growing pressure on Arsene Wenger by beating Arsenal on Thursday night, but his West Brom side were well beaten on the night and the combative boss was clearly not happy. He has no reason to want to offer the Frenchman any help [...]
Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce is upbeat about his side's chances this weekend, citing confidence from their win last week. The Black Cats are currently sat in the relegation zone, but gave themselves a huge boost by beating Norwich City last week, leaving them only one point into the drop zone. The former Newcastle and West [.
We travel to Sunderland this weekend in what could be an all-important match in both the relegation battle and the chase for CL football, but we thought we'd take a breather from the build up. We are increasingly being linked with more and more targets by the day as the season draws to a close, [...]
Arsenal's win against Palace has now put the Gunners in the driving seat to hold on to third place in the League, and most pundits believe that we have the easiest run in of the challengers but there is little chance of us having an easy game against Sunderland tomorrow. Arsene Wenger and the players [.
We travel to the Stadium of Light tomorrow to take on Sunderland, in what could be a huge game for both sides. The Black Cats are scrapping for their Premier League life at present, with two of Norwich, Newcastle and Sunderland expected to drop down into the Championship.There is only two points separating the trio, [.
There were suggestions from the TV pundits after Arsenal beat West Bromwich Albion on Thursday evening that it was something of a hollow victory, not only because our chances of the Premier League title are realistically over but due to the fact that there is no longer any pressure on the players to perform.
The Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is a Gooner through and through, but he has suffered terribly with injuries in his short career and in fact has not played one competitive game for Arsenal this season. Arsene Wenger believes he will be back in the squad for Sunday's game at Sunderland but with only four games [.
Arsenal have been playing must-win games for well over a month now, but we stuttered against West Ham and Crystal Palace before getting back into the groove last night against West Bromwich Albion. It was Aaron Ramsey's first start since his return from his latest injury, and the Welshman thinks that the performance has shown [.
The Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has been nominated for the shortlist for the PFA Player-Of-The-Year, but was strangely left out of the Team of the Year, but the German has come out and said he is not interested in personal accolades unless the team wins trophies. Obviously, despite Ozil having his best season yet in [.
Former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson has called for a change in management at his former club, describing Arsene Wenger as a 'squatter'. The French boss has been in charge of the club for 20 years thisSeptember and has led the team to lift nine trophies (excluding the six Charity Shield wins) in that time.
The brilliant Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla was sorely missed when he got injured way back in November, and his absence coincided with the Gunners drastic dip in form. It was widely publcised that the little Spanish wizard would return for the second leg of the Champions League tie against Barcelona, but he is still not [.
Even though Arsene Wenger's position as manager of Arsenal Football Club is not under threat from the top brass at the club, it has become increasingly clear that the patience of the fans is running out. So even though the Frenchman has declared this week that he will be in charge for at least the [.
Quality helped us roll over vacant WBA, but have you seen the stadium so empty? by KM Hello, hello! We won a game! Congratulations 5 in 14 is it? That's pretty good I guess. We're close to the top 4 now, but we still mathematically need 3 wins in 4 and we'll definitely at least [...]
Well that was pretty easy to pick which of the Arsenal players performed best in our reasonably easy 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion last night, as not only did Alexis Sanchez score both of the goals but his bustling drive gave a much needed lift to the flat atmosphere inside the ground and offered [.
The PFA have released their respective team of the seasons for the English divisions, and only one Arsenal star was selected for the final Premier League XI. Hector Bellerin was our only inclusion in the line-up, but Nacho Monreal has been one of our stand-out stars this term, while Mesut Ozil has been incredible for [.
Jack Wilshere has been used as a reason to poke fun at Arsenal in recent seasons, but breakthrough star Alex Iwobi has praised the midfielder. The 24 year-old is set to return to the senior playing squad for the Premier League tie with Sunderland this weekend, having survived his way through three Under-21 matches over [.
Hopefully this win for Arsenal against West Bromwich Albion will settle the nerves of the Arsenal players and allow us to play to our usual level for the rest of the season. If we do that then we should have no problem finishing in the top four and hopefully in the top three to avoid [...]
I was half expecting to see the Arsenal and France international centre forward Olivier Giroud back in the styarting line up tonight. Arsene Wenger spoke in the build up to the game against the Baggies about expecting a strong and committed defensive display from Tony Pulis's team and that means that Giroud's attributes could be [.
I am sure that I am not the only Arsenal fan that is just about fed up of hearing one of the Arsenal players or the boss talking about team spirit, solidarity, bouncing back and sticking together. That is the sort of thing we are always being told but there is precious little evidence of [...]
Arsenal head into the rearranged Premier League clash with West Bromwich Albion at the Emirates tonight knowing that only a win will do. Anything less than all three points will keep our top four rivals Manchester United from being within touching distance, after they did what Arsenal failed to do last weekend and beat Crystal [.
Players need a new leader on and off the pitch by Big Gun Looking back on Arsenal's season, it has been another serious case of déj vu. If we had a theme song, it would be the one on that broken record, likening to an old school country ballad, we all know how it begins [...]
The top four or a new manager? Which would you take? by KM Hello everybody. Have you returned your ticket for the WBA game? It gets extremely interesting, because the fans are starting to make a move that might make a big splash at the stale waters at Arsenal of late. So back to the [...]
Arsenal host West Bromwich Albion at the Emirates tonight, inwhat has swiftly become a must-win game. Manchester United closed the gap between themselves and us to only one point last night, and a failure to secure all three pointstonight would put serious doubt on our chances to finish within the Champions League places.
Is he having a laugh, Gooners, seriously? Does Arsene Wenger really expect any Arsenal fans to agree with his ridiculously positive and optimistic assessment of the way the Gunners have been playing this season and, more specifically, in the last two games? Perhaps the Prof was just trying to take some of the growing pressure [.
Manchester United climbed to within one point of Arsenal in fourth place tonight, while Arsenal are struggling to attract the support they are succumbed to. Manchester United beat Crystal Palace 2-0 tonight, and have closed the gap between themselves and Arsenal to only one point, but the latter have a match tomorrow to restore their [.
Jack Wilshere was expected to be available to make his first Premier League appearance of the season for Arsenal on Thursday, but he will have to wait. The Enland midfielder has been ruled out of action since pre-season, and hasn't featured in the Premier League since May of last year. Wilshere is nearing a return [.
Whoever wins the Premier League title this year, (it will not be Arsenal and we all really hope that it will not be our north London rivals Tottenham either) will have started the season as rank outsiders to be crowned champions of England. The spuds might not have been the 5000 to 1 shot that [...]
Arsene Wenger reiterated his stance today that he will be staying on as manager beyond the summer, so it is time the fansstopped with the anger and supported the club. The French boss has been urged by a number of fans to quit the club, having gone for 12 years with winning the PL title, [...]
I have no idea how Arsene Wenger is going to get the Arsenal players up for the final few games of the Premier League season, but the Frenchman needs to find a way to inspire the Gunners and be quick about it, or the campaign could end not only in disappointment but disaster if we [...]
We are a four weeksaway from the end of the current campaign, and with our title challenge having faded, it is time to start thinking about how we can improve for next season. Reports are claiming we are set to launch an offer for Riyad Mahrez, who is the favourite to win the PFA Player [...]
My views why Wenger should move on by Kieran Daly There has been a lot written recently about Arsenal and our inability to win major trophies. There have been some excellent articles about the apparent reasons including the owner's attitude of running it as a money making business, and whether or not the current manager [.
Arsene Wenger gave his press conference ahead of Thursday's match against West Brom where he played down reports of a move for Riyad Mahrez, and denied claims Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez were unhappy. Key creative stars Sanchez and Ozil have been claimedto be seeking assurances over the club's future before agreeing new contracts, with [.
Arsenal put tickets on global sale for WBA game by KM Well, well! A happy good day to you all beautiful Arsenal fans around the globe! Do you have your WBA ticket prepared? If not, don't worry they are on general sale as the Guardian reports! It's extremely interesting that this has happened, because usually [.
If the Arsenal and England star Jack Wilshere had not played 90 minutes for the under 21s on Monday, scoring a great goal which was not enough to help the young Gunners get the win they needed to win automatic promotion to the top division, I reckon that he would be in line for a [...]
It has been a pretty poor season all round for Arsenal and us long suffering Gooners, perhaps made even harder to take because of the higher expectations built up by a second FA cup trophy win in a row capping a brilliant end to last season. That positivity and optimism was further reinforced during pre-season [.
Arturo Vidal has urged Bayern Munich to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal this summer, but would the North-Londoners really consider his sale? The Gunners have dropped out of the title chase this season, and would needfour wins and a draw from their remaining five matches just to catch up to leaders Leicester's current points tally.
After Arsene Wenger's comments last week that the Arsenal fans should not be expecting many new arrivals during the summer, it has created conundrum about where he will be getting the replacements for Tomas Rosicky, Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini for starters, before we even think about the necessary striker and DM that have been [.
Jack Wilsherefeatured for Arsenal's Under-21 side tonight against West Bromwich Albion, and gave his coaches a fright before being allowed to see the match out.

It is little wonder that the Arsenal team did not play with all their heart at the weekend if they were listening to the fans abusing Arsene Wenger in a personal and aggressive manner. The Mirror described it as: Arsene Wenger was left shell shocked by the level abuse from Arsenal fans after his team's [.
Reasons outside Arsene as to why Arsenal are where we are. by KM Well after another season of failure and after I spoke enough about Arsene, I will put out some of the other reasons as to why we are here, but keep in mind they are all connected and it's really hard to structure [...]
At least the Arsenal under 21 side have got a second chance to achieve the main goal of winning promotion to the top division of the Barclays Premier League, but you would have to worry about our chances after the young Gunners followed in the footsteps of the senior side by blowing what seemed to [.
The Arsenal vice-captain Per Mertesacker has been left out of the last few games in favour of Gabriel, despite the Brazilian arguably being responsible for a few goals over the previous two matches, and it seems that the BFG has not been impressed with the team's attitude in our two derby draws. "It's about discipline," [.
Arsenal dropped more points at the weekend, leaving us in the fourth and final Champions League place, and are losing grip on our place in next season's elite competition.

As a huge number of fans are turning on our current manager Arsene Wenger, there is the need to bring light to some of the realities that exist with football and our club in general. I bring Liverpool to you as the prime example of a club who have gone a long time without the [...]
The #WengerOut brigade is out in full force today,but I'm one fan who is not placing the blame solely on the manager's shoulders. Arsenal failed to beat Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium today, despite leading the match for the majority of the second half. Alexis Sanchez scored on the stroke of half-time to open [.
Arsenal will be spending big this summer according to former player John Hartson.

Have Arsenal fans given up? by DN Arsenal's hopes of even making the Top Three are now going down the plug-hole at an alarming rate.

Three Things Wrong at Arsenal by Dboy No. 1 Stan Kroenke The greedy majority shareholder is draining the team to line up his pockets.

Two draws against West Ham and Crystal Palace has put Arsenal in a precarious position in the League. We are now in 4th, behind Man City on goal difference with a visit to the Etihad still to come. Also the extremely erratic Man United are only 4 points behind us as well putting us under [...]
Yet again Arsenal have turned a must-win game into a not-won game. We had all the possession but as usual the goals simply don't arrive as we are too busy passing the ball around outside the area. And then, like it was inevitable, we concede a goal on the break. Arsene Wenger actually sounded very [.
Things just refuse to get better for Arsenal and the rub of the green stays determined to go against us as the Gunners failed to win yet again after taking the lead and dominating the game against the visitors Crystal Palace. The fact that their equalising goal late in the second half came as a [...]
I would not call this a must win game for Arsenal by any means, even though it looks like Leicester City are not about to win again and confirm what we already knew, that the Gunners would be going another year without lifting the Premier League trophy, while our place in the top four and [...]
It looks like the scheduling of the fixtures in the Premier League this weekend has given Arsenal a rare piece of good fortune. A bit late maybe but we will take anything we can get at the moment. Arsenal still need to secure a Champions League spot for next year and we want to get [...]
Despite Arsenal's usual blistering start to the season, we have dropped away in the title race through our lack of goals, and us fans have (obviously) blamed our strikers like Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott for not putting away the chances created, especially by our assist king Mesut Ozil. Arsene Wenger has admitted that we [.
Stop wasting your time and breath by Sam P All season long, ever since Arsenal lost their first League game to West Ham back in August, readers on JustArsenal have been calling for Wenger's head. Every single defeat (or even draw) has produced reams of abuse on JustArsenal towards Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott, Per Mertesacker, [.
Lots of Arsenal fans seem uninterested in the last run out of game until the end of the season now that it looks impossible to catch Leicester City for the title, but Arsene Wenger is very aware that there is still much work to do just to ensure that the Gunners will make the Champions [...]
By the time Arsenal kick-off against Crystal Palace today the Premier League table could have a very grim look to it for us Gooners. Not only will Arsenal have dropped to fourth place after the Man City win at Chelsea yesterday, but Leicester City could have stretched their lead over us to 16 points with [.
Crystal Palace make the trip across London tomorrow to take on Arsenal at the Emirates tomorrow, and on paper we look an easy bet to win. The Eagles sit two places above the relegation zone currently, albeit with an 11 point advantage on Sunderland in 18th position, and have not been dragged into the dog-fight [.
Francis Coquelin has claimed that the mass of injuries suffered during the season has cost the club their chance to lift the Premier League trophy. Arsenal sit 13 points behind surprise league leaders Leicester City currently, with only six matches left to play. Despite a huge winning streak and a number of other results going [.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger today revealed that he is not looking to make major changes to his current squad before the new campagn, so we thought we'd look at the latest possible arrivals. Borussia Dortmund's Ilkay Gundogan is one of the players most heavily linked with a switch to a number of clubs, butis now [.
Carlo Ancelotti is highly expected to be the next manager of Bayern Munich when Pep Guardiola moves to Manchester City next season, and of course there are many rumours flying around as to which will be the next big signings that the Italian would want to add to his team for next season. According to [.
If there is one thing that this season has proved to Arsenal fans, it is that there are quite a few players in the squad that have either passed their sell-by date, or have failed to live up to their early expectations. Add to that the fact that the team have collapsed when faced with [...]
A request to Mr Wenger by AD Does change equates with risk? If it does, then ipso facto consistency must be identified with safety. Unless, one is able to find that high – octane quality of taking risks consistently. Results must then be born out of ability to shun or bear risks. Exempli gratia: A [.
Arsene Wenger absolutely refuses to believe that the title race is over, not while there is the slightest mathematical chance that Arsenal could still end up as Champions. But there is also the small matter of our great rivals Tottenham Hotspurs, who have not finished higher than Arsenal in the League table since 1995 but [.
There are a growing number of Arsenal fans that cannot wait for Arsene Wenger to leave and think he has gone well past his sell-by date, but for those Gunners insiders who know him well and have done for years and years, think that the Frenchman still has the desire to win trophies with Arsenal [.
There have been loads of Arsenal transfer rumours lately that Arsene Wenger is going to have a clear out of underperforming Gunners this summer, in a final bid to win the Premiership in the last year of his current contract. To be honest it sounds very unlike Wenger as his favourite words are usually cohesion [.
There are a lot of unhappy Arsenal fans around at the moment for sure. We should have won the Premier League title this season because Man City, Chelsea and Man United left the door open. We should have at least made it past the first knockout phase of the Champions League once in the last [...]
The post Would unhappy Arsenal fans swap places with Tottenham rivals?
The rumour mill is picking up speed at present, with the Premier League title all but wrapped up for Leicester City, so we thought we'd bring you up-to-date on the latest speculation doing the rounds. The majority of today's stories have been based around strengthening our midfield, but one major player I had hoped to [.
Arsenal have a ton to learn from missing out on Klopp. by KM Well it's impossible to pass by what happened in the Europa League! Forget league titles, forget the table, go on to the point as to why you watch football? The passion, the desire, the atmosphere, the masses of people sharing the same [.
You can say what you like about Arsene Wenger but you can't call him a quitter! As far as he is concerned the title race is definitely not over and he wants Arsenal to carry on fighting until the last day of the season. He said in today's press conference: "It's tight," said the Frenchman. [...]
The post Arsenal are STILL in the title race says Wenger appeared first on Just Arsenal News.
The Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp has come out to claim that Arsenal's defence has been their focal point for failing to win this season's Premier League title. The legend was a part of the Invincibles side which won the 03-04 Premier League title without losing a match, and knows Arsene Wenger all too well.
It was bad enough for Arsenal to miss out on what looked like a golden opportunity to win the Premier League this season. And it will be an extra kick in the teeth if our north London rivals Tottenham finally break the stranglehold we have had over them for the whole of the Arsene Wenger [...]
The post English success puts big pressure on Arsenal to finish 3rd appeared first on Just Arsenal News.
West Ham are reported to be keen on landing one of our English contingent this summer, with Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain linked with the exit door. Both players arrived from Southampton as young future stars, but neither are regular starters for our club, and I'm torn as to whether I would mind seeing the [.
Arsenal defender Gabriel Paulista has claimed that he has learnt his lesson from his sending off against Chelsea, and vows never to do it again. The Brazilian joined the club from Villarreal in January of last year, with Arsenal paying a reported fee of around £11.3 Million, plus allowing Joel Campbell to move in the [.
The Wenger supporters continue to put no real evidence as to why Arsene should stay. by KM Lately I saw quite a few posts and comments in Arsene's defence, after a few people had came out with posts on JustArsenal about how the time has come to part with Wenger, including mine, and rightly so [.
Arsenal could be set to offload a number of key squad members this summer,while Dan Crowley is said toset for promotion to the senior squad. The DailyMail is claiming that 18 year-old Crowley could be set for a rapid rise into the first-team squad, having been sniped from Aston Villa's academy.
Arsenal are set to be welcomed by the immediate arrival ofthe Nigerian Samuel Chukwueze, after the president of his former academy confirmed the move. The 16 year-old has been linked with a move to the Emirates for some time, and was expected to be confirmed around the same time as recent signing Kelechi Nwakali, but [.
There have been numerous Arsenal transfer rumours linking the Gunners with the outstanding Leicester midfielder N'Golo Kante in the last few weeks, and even Henry Winter revealed to the Arsenal Supporters that he thought Wenger would buy him this summer. Wenger has already revealed his admiration for the Frenchman when he was talking about Leicester's [.
This morning I received a comment from an Arsenal fan saying: "........Those who gets admin's warnings are those that are against Wenger only, which side is our beloved admin???" This was posted after there were two articles yesterday by writers who clearly want Arsene Wenger to leave Arsenal, and one "right-to-reply" article from an Arsenal [.
Arsene Wenger might be saying that Arsenal are still fighting for the Premier League title, but who really believes him? We do still have a chance of catching and finishing above our north London rivals Tottenham, which would be nice but not really all that important in the grand scheme of things other than keeping [.
Arsenal's English Core has failed by DN Okay we all know the failings in the Arsenal team, and the biggest one for me is that the "promising youngsters" that we have expecting great things from, have simply failed to deliver. You know who I'm talking about; Walcott, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Wilshere, Jenkinson, Gibbs, etc, etc.
Despite the fact that Arsenal are not out of the Premier League title race yet, at least not mathematically anyway, you will not find many people other than Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players who are willing to even entertain the possibility that our hopes are over for another year. A clear example of this [.
Every Arsenal fan will have their own opinion about this subject, and the geeks among us will bring out an array of stats to prove that this one is better than that one, etc, etc. First of all we look at actual goals scored. In the League Giroud comes out on top (like every season) [...]
The good news for the Arsenal and Germany international star Mesut Ozil is that he has been included in the shortlist of players that are nominated for the PFA Players' Player of the Year award, as reported by the BBC. The other EPL stars on the list are the Leicester City trio Riyad Mahrez, Jamie [.
Stop this Wenger hatred now by G-Rude There have already been two posts today by Wenger-haters who want to get rid our most successful manager, so I am now writing my first article for JustArsenal as I think someone here should stand up for our manager, and I will explain clearly why I have the [.
As much as our season is not quite over yet, our assault on the Premier League title looks likely to be, so we thought we'd look towards the upcoming summer's possible activity. Carlos Bacca is believed to be high on our wishlist, and now reports are claiming we are trying to push through a move [.
The Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil is obviously a very opinionated person and does his own thing whatever other people expect him to be doing. I was quite pleased when he made it clear that Arsene Wenger needed to buy some more star players in the summer. When he first arrived Arsenal fans thought him lazy [.
When is Enough, Enough? by dboy We as Arsenal fans are dumb-struck. It didn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what we needed to win the league when the season kicked off. We were in contention for the league up until December. And as most people predicted, the same old crisis kicked in. We [.
There will be many players at Arsenal this summer reaching the position of having two years left on their present deal, which is traditionally the time to start discussions on extensions. Mesut Ozil is one, and we have already heard what he German had to say about that, but it is also time for Arsene [.
Twist it any way you like, but another season proves Arsene is done for. by KM Hello fellow Gooners. Lately I decided to leave Arsenal aside for a while, because I'd just get angry over the same mistakes we do every time. So much I barely watch the games and I was pretty happy to [...]

I definitely think that Arsene Wenger needs to strengthen the Arsenal defensive options this summer, assuming that the Frenchman does not have a change of heart and hang up his zippy coat when the season ends of course. Maybe Calum Chambers is going to be a brilliant centre back in the future but he is [.
The Arsenal senior squad may have blown the Premier League title this season, but there is still a league title that could be coming to the club this year and if it does it could have big ramifications in the future for the Gunners. Last night the Arsenal under 21 side pulled off a fantastic [...]

The post Time for Arsenal to drop Monreal and give Gibbs a chance?
Leicester City's N'Golo Kante is claimed to be set to join Arsenal at the end of the season, and we sincerely hope that he does. The French international has been central to his side's push for a surprise Premier League title win, prompting a number of superlatives to be credited to his name. The highest [.
Arsenal all-but ended their bid to become Premier League champions for the first time in 12 years this weekend, dropping to 13 points behind with only six matches remaining.The weekend was not as clear-cut as it seemed however, with a number of refereeing decisions affecting theirdisappointing weekend.
Mikel Arteta is said to have been 'sounded out' to join Pep Guardiola's coaching set-up at Manchester City for the upcoming season. The Spanish boss agreed to take over from Manuel Pellegrini at the end of the season, and is expected to make wholesale changes at the Etihad on his arrival. As well asraiding a [.
Arsenal have eleven players currently out on loan, and as fans we would love them all to be lighting up the lower divisions with brilliant football and proving themselves good enough to fight for a place in the Gunners first team next season, but alas the truth is that there are very few impressing at [.
Before the West Ham match, there was much talk about Mesut Ozil announcing that he was backing Arsene Wenger and intended to see out his Arsenal contract, which still has two years to run. But this is also the time when clubs traditionally begin contract extension talks to see if their star players are willing [.
Our club have struggled to keep tabs on Premier League leaders Leicester City since the turn of the year, and Tottenham secureda cushion between themselves and the chasing pack this weekend also. So why have Arsenal been left behind? Some of you simply believe there is an easy answer to the question, with many wanting [.
I sincerely hope that Arsene Wenger is planning some big Arsenal transfer plans set for this summer and I believe that the Frenchman will have been stung enough by the heavy fire aimed at him by Arsenal fans and the football media alike for dropping the ball this year and failing to take advantage of [.
Most Arsenal fans will probably be hoping for more than one new forward to arrive at the club during the summer transfer window, but we have become a wearily realistic bunch and not a lot of us are that optimistic anymore. If Arsene Wenger is only going to sign one striker before the start of [...
I'm not sure if it was just me putting two and two together to get five, but during the Arsenal press conference ahead of the away game at West Ham last weekend it looked very much like Arsene Wenger was trying to hide a smile or a smirk when he was asked specific questions about [...]

Laurent Koscielny was part of the Arsenal back four which let in three goals to West Ham yesterday, but he has moved to slam his fellow team members for their part in defending.

Leicester City tightened their grip on the Premier League with a win today, so with very little to excite ourselves about this term, we though we'd look ahead to the upcoming transfer window. Wenger is claimed to be eyeing Morata's signature, and Alexis is now claimed to be pushing for his arrival in the coming [.
Another bad weekend to be an Arsenal fan as we have seen Leicester and the Spuds pull even further in front of us in the League table, but although we are resigned to our fate, we can only keep going with our fingers, arms and legs all crossed in the hope of a miracle. Our [...]
West Ham v Arsenal Player Ratings Now that I have recovered enough from the disappointment of Arsenal only managing to take a point from West Ham after being in cruise control I reckon I can rate the Arsenal players without dishing out some zeroes.

Wenger It's just not fair!by DN Arsene Wenger is not very happy that some of Arsenal's rivals in the Premier League have had lucky breaks handed to them on a plate, while poor old Wenger has had to struggle for every penny he has earned for the Gunners in the last 20 years, and [...]
The post Is Wenger a little bitter about West Ham's lucky break?
It looks almost certain now Leicester City will beat Arsenal, and everyone else for that matter, to the Premier League title this season, after Sunderland became the latest team to fall victim to Claudio Ranieri and his players. In fact no one but the Gunners has managed to get the best of the Foxes on [.

The post Would Arsenal benefit from year out of Champions League?
I am writing this Arsenal article after giving up on watching the football, because Erik Lamela just scored the third of three rapid fire goals to surely ensure that Tottenham will take all three points from Manchester United. That will put them six points ahead of us with a much better goal difference and even [.
Was this Arsenal's big mistake yesterday? by DN I listened to Arsene Wenger before the West Ham game saying that he didn't like to change a winning side, but I was still sure that he would have brought Petr Cech back into the first team. This completely threw me as Wenger made it clear previously [.
I have just seen the post match comments from Arsene Wenger after Arsenal let a two goal lead slip away to West Ham and needed a third goal just to get a point from a game that we surely had to win to stay in the Premier League title race. The boss told the BBC [...]
The post Wenger right to say Arsenal title challenge ruined by referee?
Perhaps it was fitting for Arsenal and the way this season has gone that the game which effectively ended the fading title hopes for another year was pretty much the perfect definition of the season as a whole, as explained in a Sky Sports report. As the writer put it, the early promise, the collapse [.
A great game was played yesterday although the result was not in Arsenal's favour, and the most annoying thing was that the Arsenal defence allowed Andy Carroll to be completely dominant in our penalty area. Arsene Wenger does not think that we were just unlucky that Carroll was on top form, but rather that our [.
Arsenal were 2-0 up with just a few minutes to half-time and it looked like we were cruising to an easy three points. Then Andy Carroll gatecrashed the party and scored two goals in three minutes to hand the impetus to our opponents. The second half was not much better as we allowed Carroll to [..
I can perfectly understand the attitude of most Arsenal fans in throwing their hands up and abandoning any lingering hopes that the Gunners could mount a stirring comeback in the Premier League title race. After all, most of us had already given up before the game against West Ham. The five 1-0 wins in the [.
Arsenal still have targets by Sam P There will be much wailing and hand-wringing that Arsenal's season has now definitely come to an unhappy conclusion as the gap to Leicester City now looks insurmountable, but with six games to go Arsenal still have much to play for. There is still the possibility that Leicester and [.
Arsene Wenger would have had to hand in his Arsenal team selection before he knew how West Ham would line up today, but even though the big centre forward has not started a Premier League game for about three months, I could have told Wenger that Andy Carroll would start against us today. The England [.
Arsenal's Alex Iwobi has revealed that he decided to commit his international career to Nigeria after talking with his father. The breakthrough star was born in the African country, but moved to the United Kingdom at the age of four, and has grown up as a Londoner. Iwobi went onto appear for England at Under-16, [.
Arsene Wenger has already admitted himself that Arsenal had to win all of the remaining Premier League games to have any chance of being champions and even that looked unlikely as Leicester City kept grinding out 1-0 wins and riding their luck. So I think we can all now finally stop hoping and accept that [.
Jack Wilshere made his long-awaited return to action last night, starting for the Under-21's side against Newcastle United. The 24 year-old has been out of action since May of last year, and is eager to return to the first-team in order to try and seal a place on the plane for Roy Hodgson's England squad.
Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has been talking to the press again, further denying any chance of leaving the club. The German international has been linked with a return to Spain with Barcelona claimed to be interested, but Ozil is more than comfortable in North-London, and believes he can fulfil his dreams of a trophy haul [.
Poor Theo Walcott spent years trying to convince Arsene Wenger to convert him from being a winger to being Arsenal's centre-forward, just like his hero Thierry Henry before him. This season he finally got his wish and the switch worked quite well for a few weeks before the England international inevitably got injured.
The Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has not played even one competitive game this season after he was cruelly injured the day before the Gunners played Chelsea in the Community Shield, but he is now finally getting back to fitness and played an hour of an U21 match last night. Although he may be too late [.
There is still plenty of time and lots that could go wrong for Arsenal in this topsy-turvy and hard to get a grip on Premier League season. For instance, all that Leicester City need to do is not to lose two games and draw another of their six remaining matches and the Gunners can do [...]
The post Signs the tide has (finally) turned in Arsenal's favour?

The fact that Arsene Wenger spoke about his fellow countryman during the Arsenal press conference ahead of the match between Arsenal and Dimitri Payet's West Ham just shows how much of a key player for Slaven Bilic is. It also tells you that Wenger sees Payet as one of the biggest obstacles between Arsenal and [.
I know that every single game is now a must-win fixture for Arsenal, but Saturday's visit to Upton Park is even more important that that! A win will not only keep us ahead of the chasing pack (which includes the Hammers) but will also keep us in the hunt for the title if Leicester start [...]

Of course the games that Arsenal have already played will have an impact on how the season is seen from an Arsenal point of view, as will individual games, Wenger's transfer dealings, injury problems and many more factors besides. But the Gunners, I believe, are at a crossroads right now and the next match could [.
Arsenal are now just 24 hours from the game that could make or break their season. A win at Upton Park will surely give the Gunners the confidence and impetus to carry on winning against less daunting opponents, but a defeat could knock the stuffing out of our whole season. Arsene Wenger is well aware [.
Here is our usual View From The Enemy feature, and this week we have an interview with the West Ham manager Slaven Bilic conducted by the official West Ham website. He sounds very calm and articulate and gives measured answers to his questioners. He certainly doesn't need to shout at his players and his brilliant [.
Jack Wilshere is no stranger to being in the newspapers for the wrong reasons, and this weekends fracas and brawl outside a nightclub at 2 am was swiftly broadcast to the world at large in very large headlines. The Arsenal midfielder has not kicked a ball in anger this season, but his manager Arsene Wenger [.
Arsene Wenger is praising Leicester City for showing the so called big teams that spending big is not always necessary. The Frenchman is known for being tight with the Arsenal coffers, and last summer only agreed to sign one senior player to his squad. Arsenal fans though are hoping for a number of recruits this [.
Okay Arsenal fans, hands up who thinks that the name of Olivier Giroud is going to be one of the two Arsenal strikers mentioned in the headline of this article? Although I am going to mention the big man, you might be surprised to hear that he is not among the Premier League's most wasteful [...]

Arsenal have had enough problems with the decisions of referees in the games we have played in the Premier League season, thank you very much. But it also seems to me that the EPL officials are hurting the Gunners even in games that we are not involved in, especially the helping hands they keep giving [.
This could be seen as yet more proof, along with the Arsenal injury list and the feeling that the Gunners have had a raw deal from the Premier League referees this season, that the football gods do not want us to win the EPL title for some reason, or they just enjoy tormenting Arsene Wenger [...]
Is Jordan Lukaku the preparation for Romelu? by Midkemma With reports that Arsenal are looking at left backs and Gibbs future at Arsenal uncertain, this could be the year to see Wenger getting a younger player with great promise to cover for the aging Monreal, someone who has promise and also the attributes to step [.
Arsenal's new strips for the upcoming season have apparently been leaked online, and they have a striking resemblance to the colours of Chile's international football kit. TheGunners striker Alexis Sanchez has recently revealed that he has struggled since coming back from injury, due to nursing a hamstring injury, and now it appears that his club [.
Recent reports are claiming that Theo Walcott will leave Arsenal if he fails to make Roy Hodgson's England squad this summer.

In football, and especially if you are a fan of Arsenal Football Club, you never really know what to expect, although a lot of us feel that the actions of a certain Mister Arsene Wenger are pretty predictable in some ways. Even then, however, the Frenchman will shock us all with a change of tactics [.
One good thing you can say about Arsenal since we last won the Premier League title is that, unlike other big clubs like Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Man City, the Gunners have always finished in the top four and have always secured a place in the elite European competition that is the Champions League.
Alex Iwobi has just confirmed his intention to representNigeria inthe upcoming Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro.

Iwobi will be expected to play a huge part in the Gunners bid to win next season's Premier League [.
A few years back, there was much made of Arsenal's "English Core" that was supposed to be the backbone of the England team for this generation, but due to mostly injuries they have rarely all featured together for Roy Hodgson's side. In fact in the last international break before the Euro2016 actually starts, only Danny [.
Arsene Wenger has revealed the thought-process behind promoting youth players into his first-team, following the exciting emergenceof Alex Iwobi. The 19 year-old has moved from the Under-21 squad, to a first-team regular in the past couple of months, and has just earned himself a new five-year deal with the club.
Only the Arsenal manager will know whether the current first choice pairing of Gabriel with Laurent Koscielny at the heart of the Arsenal defence is a temporary arrangement or something that the manager is taking on a game by game basis. Even if it is supposed to be the new regular central defensive set up [.
Arsenal have been linked with a number of players in recent months, and their chances to agree deals for Romelu Lukaku, Granit Xhaka orZlatan Ibrahimovic have taken a blow.

Arsenal are in desperate need of a top class striker to lead the line, and Edinson Cavani has confirmed that he will be considering his future at the end of the season.

Leicester winning the title is a reflection of the state of English football by KM With all my respect to new champions Leicester, I have to say that this is bad news for English football overall.

Alex Iwobi has only just broken into the Arsenal first team but after just a few games the Arsenal fans have already accepted that he is a player of the highest quality.

The comments from the Arsenal star and Germany play maker Mesut Ozil this week have clearly gone down like a lead balloon with his club boss Arsene Wenger, who suggested that he would having a little word in the shell-like of his star player.

Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi has revealed he is learning every day simply by watching Mesut Ozil during training.

Iwobi has started his club's last four matches, including the all-important Champions League [.
Two swallows may not make it spring (or something like that!) but two wins and six goals can certainly increase Arsenal's confidence levels, especially when enhanced by Tottenham dropping two vital points in the title race. This will be helped even further today if Southampton (a team we can't beat) can take three points from [.
There were some fantastic performances in an Arsenal shirt yesterday all over the pitch, as the Gunners romped to a 4-o thrashing of Watford, including a nice dash of revenge for the FA cup exit a few weeks ago.

So I am looking at what the boss was reported [.
Arsenal are set for the departures of Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini at the end of the season, and the perfect replacement in N'Golo Kante appears to be free to move.

Did Arsene Wenger just let our north London rivals slip his mind today in the Arsenal press conference ahead of our Premier League clash with Watford tomorrow?

Maybe I am reading too much into the comments of the Arsenal and Germany international star, and Mesut Ozil just happened to be talking about Zinedine Zidane for a completely different reason.
