Sunderland will be smarting from their 8-0 hammering last week at the hands of Southampton so I expect them to be much much tighter tomorrow against an Arsenal side who have struggled thus far in-front of goal for the amount of possession they gain expect more of the same tomorrow at the Stadium of Light.
The Arsenal manager spoke to the press today ahead of the trip north to face Sunderland in the Premier League tomorrow, as reported by The Mirror. And I don't think that Arsene Wenger needed to stretch his tactical acumen too far to realise that the home side may well concentrate on their defending after being [.
One of the latest Arsenal transfer rumours could see the Gunners embroiled in a transfer battle with five other Premier League clubs, according to a report in The Mirror. And that could definitely turn into an interesting fight. The player involved, German international winger Karim Bellarabi, must be feeling quite good about himself after scouts [.
Arsenal seem to be operating under Murphy's Law at the moment, which states that anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. And with the defensive side of the Arsenal squad being the weakest right now, of course that means that Laurent Koscielny has now added even further to the problems, as reported by Sky [.
Arsene Wenger may not have much more time to make up his mind about this particular transfer target. Marco Reus of Borussia Dortmund has been linked with us for a long while and continues to be the subject of many Arsenal transfer rumours. But the talented and exciting Germany international will not come cheap and [.
I am not even going to try to claim that the two late goals which won the Champions League game against Anderlecht in Brussels last night were just rewards for the team's efforts. For most of the match, the Gunners just could not make things happen, even though we did control the ball for large [...]
This should be music to the ears of Arsenal fans everywhere, because ever since the Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich started pumping money into Chelsea, the Blues have regularly been able to beat the Gunners to any transfer targets that both clubs want, as well as being able to poach the likes of Ashley Cole with [.
What would be a good haul of points for Arsenal at the end of the first round of Premier League fixtures? by SE Arsenal, having garnered just 11 points from their first 8 Premier League games, look like a side that has its task cutout to finish in the top 4 at the end of [...]
Because of all the injury problems Arsenal have been beset with recently, including to Mesut Ozil and young Serge Gnabry, the Gunners have just two Germans in the match day squads at the minute. Both Lukas Podolski and Per Mertesacker were involved in that unlikely last minute win over Anderlecht, with the striker scoring the [.
Dunga has named his squad for the games versus Turkey in Istanbul 12th November and Austria in Vienna six days later. With the Brazilian league and Copa do Brasil moving into important phases, Dunga has limited his squad to Europe based players. Shakhtar's Luiz Adriano, and Hoffenheim's Roberto Firmino, get their first call-ups.
The graph below shows the ten clubs who have amassed the most goalsin the history of English football's top division, ranging from the pre-Premier League era (First Division) right through to the present day.
Rather surprisingly, particularly to those of a younger generation, Everton and Aston Villa head the list, beatingthe modern day behemoths of Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea.
First of all I want to make it clear that I do not expect Arsenal to overtake the current group leaders Borussia Dortmund and win our Champions League group. I know that we are only three points behind the Germans and still have to host them at the Emirates, but they are playing much better [...]
The Arsenal and England international midfielder has given his own take on the Champions League win over Anderlecht in Brussels last night. And while the 22-year old Gunners accepts that we did not play very well and had to rely on a bit of luck to avoid defeat, never mind win, Jack also feels that [.
After getting a serious dressing down on live TV by former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson last night, as the Gunners toiled against Champions League minnows Anderlecht in Belgium, Arsene Wenger and his players have come in for more criticism today. One of our unlucky opponents from last night, who must still be wondering just how [.
Arsenal vice-captain Per Mertesacker accepts the Gunnersare still misfiring despite pulling off a dramatic late 2-1 win over Anderlecht in Brussels to stay on course for the Champions League knock-out stage.
The Gunners got away with a largely average display at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium, where a second-half header from Andy Najar looked to have put the Belgians on course for a famous win to ruin manager Arsene Wenger's 65th birthday.
Sunderland: 2 players to watch out for when Arsenal visit Stadium Of Light this Saturday by SE Arsenal take on Sunderland at the Stadium Of Light this Saturday, as Wenger's wizards seek to get back to winning ways after picking up just one point from their last two league games. For the Gunners to finish [.
Wonderful news from weekend last as Woolwich saw off the challenge of European titans Hull City Tigers. Hull, lest we forget, are twelve time winners of the European Cup, 37 time winners of the English Premier League, and due to administrative error have won La Liga fifteen times, Serie A 80 times since the Boer War and Ligue 1 so many times that every Hull City Tigers fan is automatically given the Ordre national de la Légion d'honneur.
It's a crime against nature we know, but Robert Pires was allegedly "beaten" and punched in his beautiful, beautiful face by an opposing coach during a half-time barney mid-way througha recentIndian Super League.
Pires' coach at FC Goa, Zico, has told press that the French veteran was struck in the faceby Atletico de Kolkata coach Antonio Lopez Habas as the two teams funnelled into the tunnel at the interval.
Will Ramsey's return bring about a change in Arsenal's fortunes? by SE Aaron Ramsey returned to action for Arsenal during the 2-2 home draw against Hull City last weekend. The Welshman came on as a 62nd minute sub for Mathieu Flamini, as the North Londoners went in search of an equalizer. Ramsey completed 82% of [.
This is a short starter for Rant Friday and concerns our ex-players who have become pundits.
Let's start with a man who has a clear anti-Arsenal agenda, Stewart Robson. I have no idea why such an admired player (pre-injury) has turned into a man who cannot speak without being negative about our boys but whatever it is it must have been painful because he clearly hates his former employers.
Time to drop Flamini by Blaz Last year, when Arsenal signed Mathieu Flamini for free, I had mixed feelings. At first, I wasn't all that happy about it, but it didn't take long to feel good about it. It was good to have a non – compromising warrior in the middle of the field, someone [...]
