This year the Arsenal fans are in almost exactly the same situation as we were in the same time last year, with the transfer deadline approaching and the Gunners looking worryingly short of fire power and options for Arsene Wenger up front.We had signed Alexis Sanchez earlier in the summer but then Giroud was ruled [.
I am not going to be too hard on the Arsenal and Chile international star, because Alexis Sanchez at 80 percent is better than most Premier League players in top form. But the fantastic forward does seem to be struggling a little to find the form that made us vote him our best player of [...]
I could have given a few Arsenal players the Man of the Match award for yesterday´s hard fought win at Newcastle, with Cazorla´s probing and patient passing as well as Oxlade-Chamberlain´s direct approach and shot for the goal being key factors, but for me the anchoring presence of Coquelin in midfield and his ability to [.
After Arsenal were scoring for fun in the first four pre-season games (I am not counting the Community Shield as the Wenger/Mourinho feud made that an important game against Chelsea), it is hard to believe how badly the Gunners have struggled to find the back of the net ever since. We know that Arsenal can [.
Arsenal may have drawn a blank for the second home game in a row, leaving us languishing at around the halfway point of the league table, but there are some positives to be taken. I may be over optimistic or simply naive here, but I do think that the Gunners are close to clicking into [...]
It is true that most Arsenal fans have been pleased with the way that Arsene Wenger has modified, or at least added to, his tactics for the Gunners over the last year or so. While we all love to see the exciting and adventurous style of football for which the Gunners have become famous under [...]
Well that was a lot tougher than Arsenal would have wanted it to be but the main thing is that Arsene Wenger and his players got the result that we really needed after losing the opening Premier League game against West Ham. Arsenal started the game with real intent, zipping the ball aroung with purpose [.
I guess the Arsenal manager really does believe all his talk about the cohesion and stability of a team being all important, because Arsene Wenger has, stubbornly some might say, stuck largely with the same starting line up that was so poor as we lost to West Ham last Sunday. The Frenchman has made a [.
Arsenal have put themselves under great pressure already after the unbelievable home defeat against West Ham last weekend, and now simply must beat Crystal Palace or they will lose any residual confidence that they can still win the title. Arsene Wenger started with Olivier Giroud as striker in that game, and took a chance of [.
There is little doubt that Arsene Wenger will have been working hard with the Arsenal squad in training this week, with the aim of getting the Gunners to put right the problems that led to our shock home defeat to West Ham last Sunday. There is a lot for the boss to work on for [...]
Arsenal will be desperate to get back to winning ways in this crucial London derby against Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon, and Arsene Wenger will be looking for a big win to erase the memories of last week's debacle against West Ham. Thanks to this weeks sponsor latestbettingoffers.co.uk, one lucky reader will be getting an [.
There has been a lot of criticism for the Arsenal manager this week, hardly surprising really after all the great expectations carefully built up over the last eight months were left in a pile of rubble on the Emirates pitch on Sunday. But while the boss must take his fair share of the blame for [...
Well I don't know why I am so surprised because Arsenal have a habit of doing this sort of thing to us. But the way we tok on a briliant second half of last season all the way through pre-season had given us every reason to expect a strong start against West Ham. But almost [...]
It is not very often that you see Arsene Wenger get angry, but in Arsenal pre-match press conference this morning he got very animated when talking about why the season is starting one week early to try and ease the congestion at Xmas.... "I think it is a massive mistake for England to start one [...
The Coming of Age...... by BG The financial shackles no longer tend to dictate Arsenal's transfer activity; although in previous seasons our main players have left in the search for bigger and better things, it's also noted that the Arsenal FC was forced to play its hand in dire situations. It a different ball game [.
After the Arsenal director Lord Harris dropped the bombshell today about Arsene Wenger being able to spend almost any amount he liked to bring in a big name player or players to the club, the football media is understandably full of talk about who the Frenchman should splash the cash on and a lot of [.
Hello Arsenal fans. Although it may have been one of the most inspid performances in his three years in north London yesterday, But I would still take our domination over and victory against Everton in a very positive way if I was him. Why you ask? Why? Alright then I´ll tell you. Do not let [...]
A lot has already been said about Arsenal and the need for us to put right one of the big problems of last season, namely starting slowly. Arsene Wenger has admitted that it took the Gunners way too long to really get on a roll and although there were a lot of injury problems as [...]
Assuming that Arsene Wenger actually knows what his best Arsenal starting line up is, or at least that he will know after the Barclays Asia trophy and the Emirates cup competitions in pre-season, do you think the Frenchman will try to stick with those 11 players as much as possible? There is certainly something to [.
I very much doubt that I will get many Arsenal fans arguing with the suggestion that the Chile international star Alexis Sanchez is absolutely vital to the Gunners and our chances of lifting the Premier League trophy next May. His team mates and manager in north London were blown away by his impact during his [.
The striker situation at Arsenal has already been the matter of quite a bit of debate, for us fans and for those paid to talk about football and the Premier League. The problem is certainly not of the numerical variety, because even if Joel Campbell joins Lukas Podolski out the Emirates exit door, we would [.
Look Arsenal fans, even if this turns out for the worst, it is still nothing like the injury crisis that Arsene Wenger was having to cope with at this stage last year, or the continuous problems that hit the Gunners midway through the previous season that saw our brilliant start to the season ruined.
Even the Arsenal fans who fully appreciate the silky skills, close control, vision and passing that the Germany international Mesut Ozil brings to the Arsenal party would probably still admit that they would have liked to see the midfielder have more of an influence and impact since his transfer from Real Madrid.
One of the biggest things that Arsenal fans learned from the Copa America final last night, when Chile took Argentina to extra time and then a penalty shoot out that they won, was how cool our striker Alexis Sanchez is under pressure. Maybe to say we learned it is wrong, because the 26-year old has [.
It will make no difference to Arsenal, at least in terms of when Arsene Wenger has our fantastic forward Alexis Sanchez back on the training ground, which of the two south American teams emerges triumphant from the Copa America final tonight. The boss has already told us that he is going to make sure that [.
If Arsenal were looking for some sort of helping hand ahead of our latest attempt to reclaim the Premier League trophy, then we will have to look elsewhere than the Copa America tournament currently going on in Chile. We can still hope that our star man Alexis Sanchez and reported transfer addition Arturo Vidal get [.
Arsenal fans now have just one more week of nail biting and tension to endure before we know that all of our players will be ready for the big push for the Premier League title next season. If all goes well, this time next week will see an injury free Alexis Sanchez celebrating a Copa [...]
The current star of the Arsenal team Alexis Sanchez was on international duty again last night and he helped his Chile team mates defeat Uruguay in a hard fought Copa America quarter final to book their place in the semi-final. But he was lucky to come through the game unscathed as Uruguay put themselves about [.
There may be a few Arsenal players, both past and present, who will be wanting a little word with our England international star Jack Wilshere after this. The 23-year old who has been with the club since he was nine years old was asked to name the best 11 players that he has played with [...]
There has been quite a lot said about the former Arsenal star Dennis Bergkamp in recent days, because the weekend marked the 20th anniversary of our incredibly talented Dutch master signing for the Gunners. The praise for the forward has been fulsome, with another former star Paul Merson going as far as telling Sky Sports [.
There is little doubt that the Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez will be a major factor for Arsenal if we are to challenge for the Premier League title next season, no matter which top, top players the manager might bring in to the club during the summer transfer window. His overwhelming vote as the Arsenal fans' [.
Have Arsenal really got rid of Diaby ? Alexis talks success! by KM Wow there! Hot news in the Arsenal transfer news! We've released... Abou Diaby. I think that in the list of players whose careers got ruined by injury, Diaby would be undoubtedly in the top five. He had the raw potential. I remember [.
At the time of writing this article, the Arsenal website had not revealed which player had been voted by the fans as our best performer this season. But with Santi Cazorla in third and Francis Coquelin in second, it does not take a genius to work out that Alexis Sanchez will be the number one. [...]
While Arsene Wenger was having to try and keep Arsenal winning in four competitions with almost a full team of players missing due to various injury and fitness problems, I was always surprised to hear members of the football media and even Arsenal fans dismiss the affect that this was having. I wonder if those [.
On the face of it, the Arsenal and France striker was well and truly outshone by his new team mate Alexis Sanchez this season and so many Arsenal fans and football fans in general were in agreement with the club legend Thierry Henry when he launched into a criticism of Giroud recently. And Giroud has [.
In the years when Arsenal were not winning anything except our annual place in the Champions League group stage, Arsenal fans were understandably a bit miffed when Arsene Wenger spoke about the balance of the squad and about building for the future. But it now seems as though the Frenchman´s plans for the foundation of [.
What Arsenal can take from Wembley by Sam P There was a hell of a lot for Arsenal fans to be happy about yesterday. Another major trophy, of course, as well as the great performance put in by the players to get us the result that we wanted. There was also the fantastic Wembley atmosphere [...]
Once again there were a number of Arsenal players that put in great performances and could have been names as the Man of the Match. I am not going to argue with the BT sport pick of Santi Cazorla but for me the stand out man was FRancis Coquelin who showed some great technical ability [...]
Just as expected, Arsenal began the first half with a bit of caution just to make sure that we were not left chasing the game as we had to in the final last season. But Aston Villa never really looked like scoring once, never mind twice, and so the Gunners soon got into our stride. [...]
Not only did Alexis Sanchez win over the Arsenal fans with his brilliant debut season as a Gunner, he won over the football media and a lot of fans from other clubs as well, highlighted this week when he was voted as the Premier League Player of the Year by the fans. Coming from the [...]
