Sunderland 0 – 2 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 6 He made a few easy saves and was commanding but almost got caught out when he headed the ball away and was caught acres away from his 6 yard box. Chambers – 6 Again, he was very rigid and Sunderland looked to exploit [...]
As I see it by WC Last year Arsene Wenger took the Arsenal team to Stamford Bridge hoping to make a landmark celebration. What followed were many sleepless nights of anguish and misery. The Bridge had indeed confirmed its status as a theatre of horrors for him.. On Wednesday he took his team to Anderlecht [.
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 [.
I don't think it is too harsh on Arsenal and Arsene Wenger to say that the win away to Sunderland was a bit on the lucky side. The Gunners did score twice and keep a rare clean sheet, but that was mostly down to the poor performance of the home side rather than any real [...]
No Arsenal fan can be happy with the performances NOR the results by KM After being slaughtered every time I put Arsenal's faults down to the manager, he comes out once again to prove my points correct. Happy birthday Arsene, there are your three points. Taking the points was massive, because it means one more [.
Although Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta are back from their respective injuries, and Serge Gnabry and Theo Walcott will soon be featuring in Arsenal matches, Laurent Koscielny's injury appears to be a bit more serious than first expected. The central defender returned to London while on international duty earlier in the month because of an achilles injury.
A traditional 3pm kick-off today, and what I'd give for a traditional one nil to the Arsenal. Don't get me wrong, I'd take a 2-0, a 3-1, a 4-3 or any shape of win, but a clean sheet would be nice given how often we've conceded this season.
The team news is that Jack Wilshere misses out through suspension having picked up five yellow cards, and I think Mikel Arteta will come into the midfield for him.
With Arsenal struggling with injury problems in the midfield department, just like everywhere else on the pitch, it is easy to see why Arsene Wenger played both Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere against Anderlecht on Wednesday. But it did not really work and there is a theory that the two central midfielders are too similar [.
You have to feel sorry for Abou Diaby. When he signed for Arsenal Football Club back in January 2006 as a 19-year old, Arsene Wenger clearly saw him as the natural successor to his fellow Frenchman and midfielder Patrick Vieira. And he was already starting to show that he could be when a horror tackle [.
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 [.
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.
I must admit that I am very surprised at the Arsenal starting line-up for the Premier League clash with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. It smacks of extreme caution to me, when I expected the Frenchman to try to build on the midweek win and take advantage of the low confidence that the Black [...
Sunderland vs Arsenal Preview, Predicted line up and score by KJ We've struggled to pick up points against the smaller teams with two disappointing draws against Hull and Leicester. We also just about managed to beat Palace at home thanks to a last gasp Ramsey winner. We have to make a statement in this game [.
Arsenal: What would be the preferable starting XI against Sunderland? by SE Arsenal, for all the struggles they have endured in the Premier League so far, have done well to pick up 6 points out of 6 in their last two Champions League fixtures against Galatasaray and Anderlecht. That last gasp win on Wednesday night [.
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 [.
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 [.
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 [...]
Arsenal could bid for highly rated young French winger - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Arsenal are showing an interest inSaint Etienne's highly talented youngsterAllan Saint-Maximin. The 17-year-old is one of the emerging stars and surprise package for the Ligue 1 side and naturally several European clubs have shown an interest in him, including Arsenal and AC Milan.
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.
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [.
