Arsenal's energy-filled striker Alexis Sanchez had a brilliant summer as he helped Chile to win the Copa America, and he helped his team pass another milestone in Santiago last night by beating the Brazilians for the first time in 15 years. After seeing Alexis get substituted towards the end of the Gunners fantastic win over [.
All Arsenal fans could dream of having a team of players that played with the energy and confidence of our star man Alexis Sanchez, but even if we had two of him up front that would make us into formidable opponents for any team in the world. So if Theo Walcott is aiming to play [...]
This win for Arsenal over Premier League rivals Manchester United saw a great all round performance from the Gunners, both in attack and defence and there were lots of candidates for the Man of the Match, such as Petr Cech who made three crucial saves, Alexis Sanchez for his two great goals and Theo Walcott [.
The only complaint that I can have with the Arsenal performance today was that we did not score more goals. I have no problems at all with the way we eased off and sat back after storming into a three goal lead against Manchester United. What a start though. Electric stuff from the attacking players [.
You might think that Arsenal should be scoring more goals, considering that with the likes of Santi Cazorla, Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey we have the most potent attack when it comes to creating chances. But I do not think that this is our main problem. The strikers were certainly guilty of missing [.
With Arsenal in dire need of winning our second Champions League group game after losing the first, a home clash with Olympiakos seemed the ideal game. But it was like watching the Zagreb game all over again in the first half and we went into the break losing 2-1. Arsenal had started well and were [.
The Arsenal and England star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been pretty unlucky on the injury front in the early years of his footballing career, just like many of his Arsenal team mates like Wilshere, Ramsey and all. Even considering that, however, he might have featured more for Arsenal. Arsene Wenger has often been quite cautious in [.
The Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey watched his team-mate Alexis Sanchez break his goal drought against Leicester this weekend, and quickly follow it up with two more in our 5-2 win. The Welshman is keen to emulate the Chilean in tonight's game against Olympiakos at the Emirates tonight. Ramsey's drought now stretchs back to 14 games [.
The Arsenal and England international star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could well be set to feature in his third game in the space of a week tomorrow evening, when Olympiacos come to town for the second round of Champions League group games. He had mixed fortunes in his previous two appearances, scoring an unlucky own goal in [.
There is a reason why Arsenal play better away than at home by KM Hello fellow Arsenal fans. Our great away form continued at Leicester at the weekend when we dispatched 5 goals, all of them coming from our strikers. Happy times right? Who needs a striker if you can score five goals against the [...]
The Arsenal and Chile star Alexis Sanchez did not break just his goal scoring duck for the new season yesterday. Because his three goals against Leicester city meant that he also became a record breaker. In fact he broke two, the first being the only Chilean to have scored a Premier League hat-trick.
An excellent day all round for Arsenal as they finally found their scoring boots and Walcott, Giroud and Sanchez all getting on the scoresheet and doubling our tally for the season to 10. There were many top-class performers yesterday but I don't really expect you to guess who was MOTM as Alexis Sanchez was sublime [.
Arsenal had only scored five goals in their first five games, but they doubled that to ten with an outstanding performance at the King Power Stadium, and the star of the show was our Duracell Bunny Alexis Sanchez. The Chilean had looked sluggish up til now and had had little luck in front of [...]
Although the Premier League table was not looking too bad for Arsenal and we had beaten the spuds in the Capital One cup, it is safe to say that the Gunners were not exactly firing on all cylinders. We had created a lot of chances but there seemed to be problems all over the pitch. [...]
This game was always likely to be a tricky one for Arsenal, as we are not exactly firing on all cylinders, while Claudio Ranieri has the home team Leicester playing with real verve and pulling up trees in the Premier League. The game was as fast and furious as we expected right from the kick [...]
Arsene Wenger lamented at the end of last season that Alexis Sanchez would have to miss the Arsenal games in the first month of the new season, because of his involvement in the Copa America over the summer. Sanchez went on to win the tournament with Chile, so in fact he should really have had [...]
I was already leaning towards Mathieu Flamini as the best Arsenal player in the Capital One cup north London derby, and then the Frenchman came up with that stunning volley to win the game, so there was no contest. As well as his goals, Flamini brought grit, drive and determination to the heart of the [.
Arsene Wenger is likely to ring the changes to the Arsenal team for the Capital One cup game this week, although after losing our last two games and having to face our local rivals Tottenham in the cup, he is likely to resist his usual tactic of playing a lot of young Gunners. There is [...]
Arsenal did not score but we did have to play the whole second half with 10 men and were further reduced to nine after Mike Dean sent off Gabriel and Cazorla, but Theo Walcott was lively and our biggest threat, even if he did get caught narrowly offside a few times. And there was not [...]
While it is vital for Arsenal to get off to a positive start in the Champions League by beating Dinamo Zagreb in Croatia tomorrow, there is no way that Arsene Wenger can focus on just this game. With another crucial game away to Chelsea in the Premier League less than three days later, the Frenchman [.
I know that neither of the options for Arsenal in the centre forward position has quite done it for us yet this season, but with Danny Welbeck out for a long time and Alexis Sanchez seeming to prefer to play in a wide forward or number 10 role, Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud are what [...]
This first game back after the international break was always going to be a very important one for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger, especially after the manager had let the summer transfer window close without signing a single outfield player, when many in the football world thought the Gunners were crying out for a striker.
After the recent struggles to score at home and with Arsenal´s massive pre-season optimism having evaporated after a slow and goal shy start to the season, we needed a fast start at home to Stoke today. And we certainly got it and should have been in front inside three minutes, but Alexis Sanchez saw his [.
I am not sure how much of a minority I am in, as the Arsenal fans who have never thought much of the France international striker Olivier Giroud seem a lot more willing to talk about it than the ones that appreciate the big centre forward´s abilities and efforts, but I would definitely call myself [.
There are still a few international games to get through for the Arsenal players who have jetted off to various locations around the globe to meet up with their fellow countryman, but for the Gunners and our hopes of getting back to the serious business of domestic action with a bang, you have to say [.
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 [.
