When I say Arsenal beating Monaco, I mean over two legs because the important thing, absolutely vital in fact, for Arsene Wenger and the team is to be in the draw for the quarter-finals. Not only would it be disappointing and a massive chance missed if are not, but it could have a knock-on effect [..
I am sure that all the Arsenal fans have all been made well aware of the excellent record, especially in defence, that our Champions League opponents Monaco will be bringing to north London on Wednesday. Just once conceded from their six group games and just one from their last 11 games in all competitions is [.
I have been scratching my head recently about the decision by Arsene Wenger not to start with Theo Walcott in his Arsenal starting line-ups. After all, the England international forward has the speed of an exocet missile and has already showed his improved finishing since his return from injury. But after Danny Welbeck had another [.
I think that almost every Arsenal fan was hoping that Arsene Wenger could somehow pull off a massive transfer coup and beat the German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich to the signature of the Poland international star Robert Lewandowski when his contract with Borussia Dortmund ran out last summer. It did not happen, but after the [.
With his two well taken goals at the weekend, the Arsenal and France international forward Olivier Giroud fired the Gunners into the quarter-finals of the FA cup, a competition he seems to like having scored three goals in five games in our road to Wembley last season. Arsene Wenger was full of praise for the [.
Arsene Wenger made a surprising amount of changes to his Arsenal team for the visit of Middlesborough in the FA cup today. We are used to the manager making changes for the cup competitions but seven still seemed a lot, especially with the Championship side being in great form and having knocked Man City out [.
Arsene Wenger has praised the hard work and mentality of his Arsenal players in the build up to this important 5th round FA cup clash with an in-form Middlesborough side. And while the boss spoke about the good options that he now has all over the pitch, he has called on today's starting line-up to [.
The good news for Arsenal on the injury front is not about our Wales international midfielder Aaron Ramsey unfortunately. We don't know for sure yet but it looks like the midfielder will miss at least a month after he suffered a similar hamstring problem to the one that kept him out for six weeks earlier [.
On a day when Arsenal fans should be celebrating our elevation back into the Top Four (and back above Tottenham) we are instead discussing a woeful performance against a Leicester side that are rock bottom of the Premier League. The Gunners DID manage to hang on to take the barely-deserved three points but yet again [.
Arsene Wenger has made a few changes to the Arsenal starting line'up as he looks to bounce back with a bang after losing the derby away at Tottenham on Saturday and the visit of Leicester City, propping up the Premier
While Arsene Wenger today confirmed the news that every Arsenal fans was hoping for, the manager's latest injury update, reported by the official Arsenal website, was not all good news for the Gunners. So it seems that, as usual, Arsenal will still be missing a few key players for a while at least. The news [.
I am not having a go at Mesut Ozil here by any means. I am actually quite a big fan of the Arsenal and Germany star and have never been one of the Arsenal fans who thought he was too lightweight and would never make it in the rough and tumble of the Premier League. [...]
This will not be the first time or the last time that Arsenal face two big games in quick succession of course, and the fact that our north London derby clash with Tottenham has been scheduled for the early kick-off on Saturday will help, but Arsene Wenger must still consider the fatigue of his players, [.
I have got used the fact that some sctions of the football media cannot resist having a pop at Arsenal. Maybe they just do not like us or maybe it is because we have become an easy target during the years without a trophy (and didn't they like to remind us?) and perhaps now they [...]
Hello Gooners all over the world! by DD I hope we are all buzzing with the 5-star performance from the Arsenal lads yesterday and we are all now looking forward to next weekend's North London Derby. We are all hoping that the boys will be firing on all cylinders against the Spuds. Saying that, Arsenal [.
I would not as far as to say that the next Arsenal game was an absolutely crucial one, especially when you look at the Premier League fixtures coming up after next weekend, but a north London derby is always a massive game for the players and fans and we really do not want to lose [...]
Arsene Wenger has given the Arsenal fans all the latest on the injured Gunners during the press conference ahead of the Premier League clash with Aston Villa at the Emirates on Sunday. You can see the whole thing on Arsenal Player but I am just looking at what the manager revealed about the injury situation [.
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 [...]
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. And I do not mean the balancing act that the Frenchman has been forced into while having very little money to spend as the club paid off the debt of building a [..
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 [.
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. As I wrote in an article for Just [...
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. The signing of players like Sebastien `the squid` Squillaci and Andre `the donkey` [.
Arsenal 3 – 0 Stoke Player Ratings by KJ Ospina – 6.5 Didn't have anything to do for the majority of the game. Had to make a couple of decent saves near the end but wasn't tested properly. Debuchy – 6 He was playing well until he was injured by Arnautovic. It seems like he'll [...]
After the horror show that Arsenal produced away to Stoke a few weeks ago, which was probably the worst 45 minutes from the Gunners for many a year, it was vital that Arsenal put on a much better showing in front of the Emirates crowd. And the way we started that game, the Arsenal players [...]
Arsenal vs Stoke Preview, predicted line up and score by KJ After the hectic Christmas schedule, we've had to wait an entire week for this game which has probably been a much needed rest for the team. Stoke embarrassed us at the Britannia earlier on this season and I'm hoping the players are eager for [.
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 [...]

Follow Soccer Blogger on Twitter Arsenal vs Hull City 2015 (AFC Hull VIDEO BELOW) Final score and result:- Arsenal vs Hull 2-0 (Mertesacker, Alexis) Emirates Stadium, London- 4 January, 2015- FA Cup- 17.
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. Arsene Wenger gave both Theo Walcott [.
The young Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo may not have scored against Hull City in the famous FA cup final triumph at Wembley back in May, but there is little doubt that he did have a big effect for the Gunners after coming on with around half an hour of normal time left to play. Arsenal [...]
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. And assuming that the boss is not going [.
That daft red card that the Arsenal and France international striker picked up for losing his rag and throwing a headbutt in the QPR game is starting to look more and more costly to the Gunners. We did manage a plucky away win at West Ham in the first of the centre forward's three games [...]
Although the most important thing for Arsenal in the Boxing Day game against QPR was to get all three points in front of the Emirates stadium crowd, Arsene Wenger did take two big positives from the performance as well. And we will need to show both of those qualities again away to West Ham today. [.
Arsenal are facing a very tough test tomorrow as we travel to face an in form and high flying West Ham. Sam Allardyce has really got his players working as a solid team this season and their place above the Gunners in the Premier League table is no fluke. Having said that, an Arsenal win [...]
Wojciech Szczesny 6.5 The Pole didn't have a lot to do but coped well when needed. No chance with the penalty Mathieu Debuchy 7 Reasonably solid in attack and defence. Harshly treated in the penalty claim Per Mertesacker 6.5 Looked more comfortable than in recent games, but still lacks the leadership qualities of Koscielny Nacho [.
I really do not know which way to go on the latest Arsenal performance, because there were so many contradictory things to take from the Premier League home game against QPR. The Gunners did a fantastic job in many ways, by absolutely taking Harry Redknapp and his players to the cleaners. The performance and the [.
I don't know about the rest of the global Arsenal family, as we all prepare for whatever this time of year means to us, but one of the things I am hoping that the house breaker in the red and white suit brings me for being a good little boy is the news that Laurent [...]
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.
Arsene Wenger has painted himself into the corner with the Arsenal fans in the build up to the January transfer window. The manager has already spoken a few times this season about the nedd to strengthen the Arsenal squad, especially in the area of defence, so there is no way that the Frenchman will get [.
