Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is claimed to have set his sights on signing Alexis Sanchez this summer. The Spanish boss is set to take over from Manuel Pellegrini this summer, with only the DFP Pokal final against Borussia Dortmund left to play out with his current side Bayern Munich. Guardiolawas announced as taking over [.
You can feel the disappointment from most Arsenal fans that we didn't win this years Premier League title, but there is no doubt that there has been many highs and lows over the campaign. There has also been some extremely entertaining games, Olympiakos away anyone? Or Man United at home?, and some desperately depressing for [.
I was torn between the two Arsenal goal scorers for who would be my Man of the Match from the hard fought win away to Man City yesterday, and I plumped for Olivier Giroud over Alexis Sanchez mainly because the Frenchman's performance was more unexpected after the struggles he has had since the turn of [.
Well it was far from Arsenal at our best but at this crucial point of the season it is points and results that matter and somehow Arsenal managed to hold off a determined and dominant Man City to claim the point that all but secures a third placed finish and a Champions League place. With [...]
Ozil staying at Arsenal by A.H. Arsenal and Germany International playmaker Mesut Ozil has broken some news on his future that will surely warm the hearts of many Gunners fans. The brilliant attacking midfielder has now stated that he has no intentions of leaving North London. In a season that has seen Ozil have his [.
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 [.
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 [...]
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 [.
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 [...]
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 [.
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [.
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. And there were some good performances from the likes of Koscielny, [.
Arsenal started this latest must win game away to West Ham very well and for 40 minutes we looked in control. Our forwards and creative players were fluent and after we got a bit of luck with an early goal for the home side incorrectly ruled out for offside the Gunners took full advantage with [..
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?
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 [...]
You could point the finger at various issues and incidents for Arsenal over the last eight months and argue that this was the the main factor in our failure to take advantage of the struggles of the likes of Chelsea and Man City and cruise to the Premier League title. Just a few are; the [...]
The post Striker reveals secret behind Arsenal goal drought!
It is bad enough for Arsenal fans when there is a transfer window open and we have to wait and wait without the club spending money while Arsene Wenger gives a gallic shrug of the shoulders and tells us that he really is working hard but there is just nobody out there, except that all [...]
The post Top Arsenal stars' contract talks forcing Wenger into transfers?
If Arsenal are to finish the season strongly and keep the pressure on Leicester and Tottenham while keeping the teams below us at bay and ensuring a place in the Champions League next season, we will need the creative and attacking players in the side to keep up the sort of performances that have seen [.
There is no doubt that Arsenal have bounced back from the slump in form that may well have been the final nail in the coffin of our Premier League title hopes for another year. And there is a theory that the reason the Gunners have played better since the defeats by Manchester United and Swansea [.
Arsenal can only hope that the two teams above us in the Premier League table drop start to drop some points but there is not a lot we can do to affect that. The only thing that Arsenal can do is focus on our own performances and results and hope the pressure makes it harder [...]
The post Arsenal v Watford review Perfect win puts pressure on title rivals appeared first on Just Arsenal News.
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 [.
There have been a growing number of Arsenal transfer rumours about the possible departure from the Emirates of key players such as Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil as well the manager Arsene Wenger, which is not really surprising when you consider the pressure and the protests from the Arsenal fans about our recent struggles on [.
It is a good thing that the Arsenal boss has a pretty good understanding and working relationship with his opposite number from the England national team, because Arsene Wenger may have to ask for a helping hand from Roy Hodgson over the next week or so. Wenger is not the sort to do a Fergie [...]
The post How England can stop Arsenal striker crisis for Watford clash appeared first on Just Arsenal News.
If it was the Arsenal and Germany international star Mesut Ozil coming out and having a go at the Arsenal forwards then I could understand it. After all our assist king must feel as though he is banging his head against a brick wall. He should already have broken the Premier League assist record of [.
The former Arsenal and England international star Ian Wright has had some criticism for Arsene Wenger in the past, but he was quick to stand up for the Frenchman today as he commented on the FA cup exit at the hands of Watford. Wright was full of praise for the Hornets, their game plan and [...]
The post Arsenal players NOT Wenger must take blame for FA cup exit appeared first on Just Arsenal News.
Can Arsenal take one more step towards that 130 year old record of three FA cup wins in a row? And can we continue the turnaround in form began at White Hart Lane a week ago and backed up brilliantly in Hull on Tuesday? It will not be easy as Watford are pretty much injury [...]
The post Official Arsenal XI and preview for FA cup v Watford appeared first on Just Arsenal News.
After a run of five Arsenal games without a win, and an amazing amount of shots on goal but precious little of the final product, Arsene Wenger believes that now that Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Alexis Sanchez have all scored goals in our last two games they should return to hitting the net on [.
Arsenal fans cannot blame all our recent struggles in the Premier League title race on player of course, especially when he is one of the best players at the club, but I think we all expected a lot more from the Chile international Alexis Sanchez once he returned from two months on the sidelines with [.
Arsene Wenger must be wondering what he has done to deserve this, or be wondering why the Premier League officials seem intent on doing anything they can to stop Arsenal from winning the title this season. It is getting beyond a joke now, as almost every match day seems to throw up another dodgy decision [.
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. But thanks to our second choice stopper David Ospina those fears were eased yesterday as the Colombian produced a fine display to stop Tottenham from winning [.
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, [.
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
One of the major reasons for the problems that Arsenal have had since the turn of the year has been our failure to score. Since that 3-3 draw with Liverpool at Anfield in mid January, Arsenal have managed to find the back of the net just eight times from nine games in all competitions. And [...]
After Arsenal struggled through the end of 2015 and the start of the new year with a pretty heavy injury lost, we all got excited when players started to come back to match fitness and one player in particular was seen as the possible saviour of the season and the man to spark a strong [...]
With Arsenal fans and players licking our wounds this week after losing the Champions League home game against Barcelona thanks to two goals from the great Lionel Messi and another blank from the Arsenal attack, the last thing we want to hear is a player like Joey Barton spouting off about where it all went [.
With a potential title challenge on the cards, it goes without saying that Arsenal must get the best out of their star players. However, one player who has not been up to his usual best of late is Alexis Sanchez. Since returning from a hamstring problem, the player simply has not been able to exert [.
