Could Villa game see Arsenal attack go to next level?

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
I know that I am second guessing the Arsenal starting line0up for Sunday's Premier League clash with Aston Villa here, but everything seems to be pointing towards the Frenchman agreeing with me, at least as far as the attacking players of the Gunners are concerned. I am not talking about being complacent or not giving [.

The Arsenal and England international star Theo Walcott is finally back in the match day squads after a year on the sidelines with the anterior cruciate ligament injury he picked up in the FA cup win over the spuds last January. So he is understandably keen to get on to the pitch and start to [...]

Why Arsenal should say NO to Serie A striker transfer

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
I am not really sure whether Arsenal should even be trying to sign another striker in the January transfer window. We have bigger needs in other positions to fill for one thing and Arsene Wenger has already let the Germany international Lukas Podolski and the France under 21 international Yaya Sanogo leave the club on [.

I do not mean that Arsene Wenger is planning on supplementing his Arsenal manager's wages by taking up tightrope walking with the circus.

Is a point ENOUGH for Arsenal at Man City?

Depending on what happens in the Premier League on Saturday of course, Arsenal could have a chance to move into the top four on Sunday, possible level on points with third placed Southampton and just eight points shy of Man City in second. But we need to win away against the reigning EPL champions in [.

Ozil states HIS case for Arsenal CAM role over Cazorla

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
We heard a few days from the Arsenal and Spain international midfield maestro, Santi Cazorla, about why he felt that he was more effective in the Central Attacking Midfield role for the Gunners, rather than being stuck out wide as he was for much of last season.

Proof Koscielny is as VITAL as Sanchez to Arsenal success

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
It has often been said of Arsenal under Arsene Wenger that we are all about the creative, passing and attacking side of the game, with the defending part of football often left to its own devices and seen as a necessary evil.

Walcott to make a BIG difference for Arsenal v Stoke?

Arsenal have had their ups and downs this season, with too many of the latter and not enough of the former. And one of the very worst, for me, was the first 45 minutes of the Premier League clash with our regular tormentors Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium around a month ago. If we [...]

With both Arsenal and Hull City making plenty of changes to their starting line-ups for this third round FA cup clash at the Emirates, you might have expected a slow and cautious start and perhaps a lack of quality from the start, but that was far from the case.

Should Arsenal start Walcott against Southampton

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
I am going on the assumption that the Arsenal injury update given on Danny Welbeck was not some crafty ploy by Arsene Wenger and that the England international striker really has got a thigh problem that will keep him out of the away game against Southampton tomorrow.

In part 1 of my Arsenal half term report, I ran the rule over the goalkeepers and defence. In part 2 I will whip out a scalpel and have a good old root around in the intestines of Arsenal's midfield and attack. As an aperitif, this piece from July runs the rule over what I felt Arsenal needed in these areas ahead of the season.

Arsene Wenger was understandably happy after his Arsenal team not only managed to beat an in form Newcastle United on Saturday, but managed to do it in such a convincing fashion that instead of having personal abuse hurled at him in a dingy train station in Stoke, the Frenchman heard `there's only one Arsene Wenger` [.

Bielik is the new Whyte

There ought to be a manual for advising people how best to avoid shoe-horning woeful puns into the titles of blog posts, you know. I merely say that.

Because we all know that Krystian Bielik is not the new Chris Whyte, even if both could play centre-half. But in the absence of a legendary Arsenal midfielder called, say, Patrick Purple or Liam Khaki, I went for Chris Whyte, and that's all the explanation I am prepared to give.

West Brom 0-1 Arsenal

I could trawl back over my blogging years and find dozens of examples of my morale hitting rock bottom, only for Wenger to shed some ballast on HMS Crisis, refire the boilers and steam out of trouble.

He is an absolute expert at that he's outlasted every manager in the league by a country mile, and he's outlasted George Allison as Arsenal's longest-serving manager by five years.
