I may be reading a bit too much into the comments this week from the former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour and our current star Alexis Sanchez, but if I was Mesut Ozil I would be wondering just what I had done to deserve what seems to me like a lack of appreciation of the German [...]
Arsene Wenger may have failed to bring in a centre-back and defensive midfielder last summer, but it was surely a stroke of pure genius to bring Alexis Sanchez to Arsenal instead. The Chilean has been a breath of fresh air and his untiring energy galvanized the Gunners in the first half of the season when [.
With Jose Mourinho bringing his title chasing team to the Emirates for Arsenal´s next game, it does not take a genius to work out what tactics the negative one is going to employ. Arsene Wenger will know that there will be a big blue Chelsea bus parked in front of the Gunners at the weekend, [...]
While Arsenal were making our way to another Wembley FA cup final yesterday, Chelsea were being pummelled by Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, despite Jose Mourinho claiming that the game went perfectly according to plan. What did go for the smug one, however, was all the luck and the 1-0 result.
I know that the TV pundits gave it to Alexis Sanchez, and not many Arsenal fans will disagree after the Chilean international scored both goals for the Gunners in our narrow and hard fought win over Reading. But Alexis was not at his best and struggled for much of the game, while I thought Mesut [...
Well the important thing is that Arsenal won the semi-final against Reading to book our place at the FA cup final at Wembley next month. But it is not the sort of game that was good for those Gooners of a nervous disposition, partly due to the indomitable desire and determination of our opponents and [.
Arsenal have been linked with a summer move for Liverpool's contract rebel Raheem Sterling for some time, and Wenger did not stop the rumours when he did NOT deny there would be a bid for the England international in the run up to the Liverpool match. Wenger said: "I do not want to speak about [...]
Arsenal fans are right to be upbeat by Sam P There are always some in the English football media who will do anything to stop the Arsenal fans being happy about anything. Trophy drought, trophy drought, trophy drought was the most over-used phrase in football for years and with all the cliches used that is [.
After Arsenal banged in another four goals at the weekend as we cruised past Liverpool, only Chelsea have scored more Premier League goals than the Gunners and they have only one more than our 62, and no EPL club has scored more than our 89 in all competitions. It is not just the quantity either, [..
Scintillating, absolutely scintillating football: it finally happened, the kind of Wengerball we expected when Sanchez and Welbeck were added to the world class Özil and the gifted Cazorla at the beginning of the season.
It's been a long time coming; we have had glimpses of it; we have been teased with short periods of it but yesterday Arsenal played what was probably the best football since Henry, Pires and Bergkamp donned the glorious red and white.
There were some great performances from the Arsenal players today as we handed Liverpool a jolly good thrashing and effectively ended their chance and sealed ours of a top four finish. Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud and Hector Bellerin were all outstanding, while Coquelin, Ramsey and Monreal were excellent but not as eye catching, but for [.
After a great start from Arsenal when we pressed Liverpool high and forced them into mstakes, while our slick passing kept opening them up, Mignolet had to make two world class saves from Cazorla and Ramsey to keep the visitors level. But we didn't make the most of our dominance and then began to drop [.
There is no doubt that Arsene Wenger will want his strongest possible Arsenal line-up to start the Premier League clash with Liverpool. But as quite a few of the Gunners had been in need of a rest before this international break and with the game being a vital one and kicking off early on Saturday, [.
There can be no denying that the Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has been a revelation in the Premier League this season. But apart from scoring goals and showing off some marvellous pieces of skill on the ball, the Arsenal fans have really taken to him for his work ethic and commitment on the pitch, and [.
How they have loved to poke fun and laugh at Arsenal in recent years as we failed to win any major piece of silverware from the 2005 FA cup win over Manchester United on penalties until that dramatic fightback from 2-0 down to beat Hull City at Wembley last May. The media just loved to [...]
It has been said of Arsenal in recent years that although the squad may have been a bit light in certain areas, with the forward options, defensive strength and the keeper situation all having caused us problems and attracted scorn in the last five years or so, there has never been a shortage of small [.
It was a game of frustration for the two Arsenal stars involved in the international friendly between Brazil and Chile at the Emirates stadium today but for very different reasons. Alexis Sanchez started for Chile and was the best player on the pitch for either team. Right from the first minute the Gunner was chasing [.
There is nothing that Arsene Wenger can do about the Arsenal players that have been called up by their respective coaches for international duty, other than cross his fingers and hope that they all come back to north London in one piece next week. I must say that I find it slightly suspicious that Chelsea´s [.
Alexis Sanchez is enjoying a dream first season as an Arsenal player, exhibiting his entire repertoire of scoring goals, making goals and working indefatigably for the welfare of his team. Of late, however, the Chilean has had an obtrusive dip in form that has seen him score just 1 goal and register 1 assist in [.
I think that the Arsene Wenger will be pretty pleased that Arsenal do not play again until the game against Liverpool at the Emirates stadium in two weeks. That will be the first of (hopefully) 10 games that will decide whether the season was a great success, satisfactory or a complete disaster so the manager [.
One game to go for Arsenal before the international break and today´s away game with Newcastle United gives Arsene Wenger and the Gunners the perfect opportunity to continue our great form this year, with just two defeats and 13 wins from 15 games in all competitions since the start of 2015. If we could have [.
There is no doubt that Alexis Sanchez has not been at the top of his game lately, and this fact is underlined by the stat that he has only hit the back of the net once in his last eleven starts for Arsenal. He is still running around like the Duracell bunny but is hat [...]
Arsenal are in fantastic form in the Premier League and FA cup and even though we had to suffer yet another disappointing early exit from the Champions League, the players did go some way to redeeming themselves by playing well and winning 2-0 away in Monaco, so Arsene Wenger will be hoping that we can [.
There are a lot of Arsenal transfer rumours this week suggesting that our England international forward Theo Walcott, who was called up again by Roy Hodgson this week, is demanding a pay rise in talks with the club over an extension to his current contract which will enter its final year this summer.
Arsene Wenger has been praising the Arsenal full-backs for their performances this season, and is very happy that he has two top-class left-backs fighting for their place in the team. Nacho Monreal comes in for a special mention after his recent excellent performances, especially in the FA Cup win at Old Trafford.
I am not saying that Arsene Wenger should play a load of Arsenal's academy kids when the Gunners travel to Monaco for the return leg of the Champions League knockout phase next week. I am just saying that Arsenal must put most of the focus on the Premier League games now. As we have already [...]
I suppose it would be very easy for anyone to pinpoint Alexis Sanchez as Arsenal's most dangerous player this season, but Man United's Angel Di Maria probably knows him better than anyone else after facing him in nine competitive games since 2011 in Spain and internationals between Argentina and Chile.
This is a massive game for Arsenal for a number of reasons. But Arsene Wenger seems to be feeling very confident and sounds like he is really looking forward to the game with excitement rather than any nerves and I think I know why. Because the FA cup quarter-final against Manchester United on Monday is [.
There were quite a few candidates among the Arsenal players for the Man of the Match award, for me, with Ospina, Bellerin, Giroud, Rosicky, Cazorla and Alexis all having big games but I have gone for Francis Coquelin because he held the team together as we needed to stay firm before and after taking the [.
The stats involved in this article about the Arsenal and Germany star Mesut Ozil were made before the Gunners´trip to Loftus Road to face QPR in the Premier League, so may have changed a little but not much. The German playmaker has been the subject of so many articles in the football media since he [.

That was just the sort of physically tough and energy sapping game that Arsenal could have done without less than a week before going to Old Trafford to take on Man United in the FA cup. But it was also the sort of game that the Gunners could have crumbled in, as we did away [...]
Once again I am really surprised at the Arsenal team sheet handed in by Arsene Wenger for this Premier League away game against QPR. THeo Walcott once again is left twiddling his thumbs on the Arsenal bench, with Danny Welbeck alongside him. Perhaps just as big a surprise is the fact that Per Mertesacker comes [.
I know that Arsenal fans and critics alike will probably be wondering what I have been smoking over here, but hear me out. We are so often told by the TV pundits and the football media why Arsenal have absolutely no chance of getting anywhere near the Premier League title so why can I not [...]
There is always a danger at this stage of the season, especially if like Arsenal a club is under pressure and still fighting on three major fronts. It would be great if Arsene Wenger could happily play his best starting line up week in and week out, but I don´t think he has even been [...]
Arsenal fans owe Wenger a round of applause by Sam P I saw the article on JUst Arsenal about Arsene Wenger and his decision to mkae only two changes to the Arsenal XI for the home game against Everton today and I must say that I agree in general with the point that it was [...]
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 [.
Having been spanked at their place last season, it was nice to return the favour and give them a good paddling. I mean, I really enjoyed it. The Mugsmasher himself did not, but when we went out for beers last night I didn't press home the point too much although we did discuss their goalkeeper who he, and I'm paraphrasing here, wants to beat about the head with a large stick before throwing him out of an airplane into the propellers of another passing airplane.
