Wenger blames “external circumstances” for Arsenal’s complacency – Again??

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
It was always going to be interesting to see how Arsene Wenger justified Arsenal's dire performance against the Swedish minnows Ostersunds who had an average attendance of 5,295 last season. The Gunners were 2-0 down at half-time and there was a real possibility of Arsenal being eliminated if they carried on in the same fashion.

Shameful performance – but Arsenal are through to the next round

There is no nice way to describe Arsenal's dire performance against the Swedish minnows Ostersunds, especially at the Emirates in front of our own fans. If we had lost in Sweden we could have blamed the plastic pitch or the frozen pitch, but back in London there is no excuse possible. Jack Wilshere, who was [.

Arsenal v Ostersund Review – Mighty Ostersund make Arsenal look like amateurs

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
So this is the team that Arsenal put out tonight, and there is simply no way that you could say that Wenger has put out a total team of reserves, but no matter the gulf in the quality (or the cost) of these multimillionaire reserves playing against a tiny Swedish hurdy-gurdy men. Arsenal: Ospina, Bellerin, [.

Tottenham v Arsenal review – Gunners made to look like amateurs

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
The first ten minutes looked very promising with both sides going for it with end-to-end action, but after that the pouring rain put a right dampener on the proceedings, and both sides seemed quite happy to wait for an unlikely chance to appear. The break came with just one shot on target for either side [.

Allardyce – Everton were pathetic against Arsenal!

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Everyone has been praising the new Arsenal attack and the fantastic hat-trick from Aaron Ramsey, but I haven't seen a lot of sympathy for Theo Walcott and his new Everton team-mates. The Gunners tore them apart in the first half and went in to the break with a 4-0 lead, but couldn't keep the same [..

There is no rational explanation for Arsenal’s mistakes against Swansea, but it’s hardly unusual

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Yet again Arsenal continue to look like amateurs when they play away at lower level sides, especially our defence, who are only consistent at carelessly giving the ball away. The Gunners have won only 3 away games this campaign, and would you believe that only 5 teams in the whole division have conceded more away [.

Arsenal can thank Chelsea’s Rudiger for Cup final place

Just Arsenal at related • 2 views
Arsenal beat Chelsea 2-1 tonight to book their place in the Carabao Cup final. The Gunners started the match out of sorts, giving our rivals ample space in our half, and our defence did not look like they were going to enjoy the best of days. The Blues had the ball in the back of [...]

Half-time Highlights & Report: Arsenal must make changes or Chelsea will succeed

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Arsenal will consider themselves lucky to have got the half-way stage without trailing, but must up their game or change the system if they want to qualify for the final. We started the match terribly giving the Blues too much space on the ball, and they took well advantage of the gaps to pile the [.

Arsenal’s target was just to win – and they did it in 20 minutes!

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
At last Arsenal got their act together and won a game this year at last. It definitely seems to make a big difference playing in front of our home crowd at the Emirates, but more important was the urgency which the team showed by trying to put the game to bed as quickly as possible, [...]

Arsenal v Crystal Palace Review – Who needs Alexis Sanchez?

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Arsenal hadn't won a game in their last 5 matches and without a win in 2018, and Crystal Palace were in great form in the same period, so all the miserable Arsenal haters were predicting an easy win for Palace, but suddenly after just six minutes Arsenal were 1-0 up from a header by Nacho [...]

Wenger ‘disappointed’ and wonders how Arsenal lost to Bournemouth…

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Arsenal travelled to Bournemouth today to face a team that was hovering above the relegation zone and hadn't won for ten games, but then again Arsenal hadn't won any of their last five either and they had an awful away record. Although the Gunners looked nervous they still looked the most dangerous in the first [.

Arsenal earn deserved draw to frustrate dominant Chelsea side

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Chelsea will be frustrated at having played out a 0-0 stalemate with London rivals Arsenal in the opening leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final, but the Gunners will be more than happy to be level. Chelsea started the match all thebetter with a number of fluid passing spells, albeit without creating any clear-cut opportunities.

Arsenal v Chelsea Player Ratings – Ozil’s back and Wilshere keeps going strong

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Arsene Wenger may only want to talk about referees after any game nowadays, but in fact Arsenal simply cannot win a game anyway and if Alvaro Morata had taken any of his chances Chelsea would have won this game in canter. But other than that the game was very attacking from both sides and exciting [.

Arsenal v Chelsea First Half Review – Brilliant game and could go either way

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Arsenal started well and were pushing Chelsea back. Our first big chance came quickly as Lacazette got a lucky free kick but Sanchez put it onto the head of one of Chelseas wall. But Chelsea came back into the game and somehow Morata was left one-on-one but incredibly put the ball well wide of the [.

West Brom v Arsenal Player Ratings – Wilshere stands out again

Sorry for putting up the player ratings a bit late but there was some little party that got in the way lol. Not that I was in the mood to celebrate after seeing Arsenal drop yet another two points in the dire game at West Brom, where we would have been very lucky to win, [...]

Arsenal only got a point against Liverpool because of defensive mistakes?

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
It was amazing, not to mention a shock, to see Arsenal score three goals against Liverpool in the space of six minutes after our team had only managed the same amount of goals in the previous 400 minutes of Premier League football. But we were probably not as shocked as Jurgen Klopp who saw his [...]

Who says Arsene Wenger can’t motivate the Arsenal players?

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
If ever we needed proof that Arsene Wenger really can influence a game through his half time talks we only have to look at last night's game against Liverpool when he persuaded the Arsenal players that they had the ability to get back into the game after looking dead and buried in the first [...]

Come on! Admit Arsenal showed they have “great spirit” Be proud!

Okay I am sure I was not the only one that thought Arsenal was dead and buried at half-time, and when Liverpool scored the second goal I was ready to bury my head beneath the cushions, but I have to admit that I was mesmerised by the way we fought back and proved that we [...]

Arsenal v Liverpool second half review – Incredible match!

Wenger is forcedto make a change as Monreal has a knock and Mustafi finally comes back but the game continues at full pace and after 6 minutes Maitland-Niles gives the ball away in the Liverpool corner and Salah gets it back uickly and finally gets a goal with a deflection off Mustafi. It looks like [.

Arsenal v Newcastle Player Ratings – Ozil the only bright spark again

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Yet again we see a match where Arsenal had over 70% of the possession and another 23 shots on goal, but we only won thanks to Mesut Ozil's wonder volley in the 23rd minute, and Petr Cech standing firm, not that he had that much to do! So here are my ratings... Cech 7 Had [...]

Back into the Top Four but the Arsenal players need a rest!

This congested December schedule is causing some crazy results in the Premiership as tired legs and injuries start to take effect. Huddersfield destroyed Watford away, Crystal Palace murdered Leicester away, and Arsenal and Chelsea struggled to 1-0 wins at home to minnows, and Burnley were lucky to get a draw at Brighton.

New Arsenal system fails to break down hardened West Ham

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Arsenal will be frustrated at having failed to pick up the all-important three points tonight, but West Ham deserve huge credit for their performance. Just like the weekend, David Moyes had his side well organised at the back, and really limited the space we was able to get in their half, while managing to cause [.

Southampton v Arsenal Player Ratings – Ozil best of a bad bunch

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Another disappointing day for Arsenal, and yet again we come away from Southampton with just one point. The Gunners had 67% possession as usual and 11 shots at goal, but yet again we just couldn't score more than one goal, and that was right at the end. I suppose, like Wenger, we should be happy [...

At least Arsenal didn’t lose! And Giroud breaks another record

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
St Marys is always a difficult venue for Arsenal and as usual Southampton proved to be tough opponents, and it could have been so much worse if Olivier Giroud hadn't got his trademark equalizer 2 minutes from the end. Arsene Wenger seemed rather relieved at the end of the game. "We could have lost the [.

Arsenal v BATE Player Ratings – Wilshere running the show but everyone played well

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
There was an excellent driving team performance from the Arsenal reserves last night in the destruction of BATE, and the focus was on our strikers as BATE rarely ventured into our half until the game was done and dusted. I really can't say that anyone had a bad game... So here are my ratings... David [.

Arsenal v BATE Review – Half time and its all over at 3-0 already!

Arsenal were set up to attack and they were obviously planning to go all out against a team that had only won 2 of their 32 away European games before today. The Gunners had a field day in the first leg, winning 4-2 over in Belarus and we were looking to score another hatful today. [...]

Proof that Arsenal were robbed twice against Man United

Just Arsenal at related • 2 views
Arsene Wenger was very unhappy with the referee and linesmen after Arsenal's home defeat to Man United, and with very good reason it seems. The Gunners attacked Man United's goal without mercy, and at one goal down after 20 minutes, the ball was sent into the box for Lacazette to connect with, and while he [.

You can’t blame Wenger in any way for Arsenal’s defeat to Man United

As usual, after Arsenal lose any game at all, we always get some commenters coming on here saying that it is all Wenger's fault and he has to go. Well you may have been right if you had said that after our abysmal 4-0 defeat to Liverpool at the beginning of the season (as in [...]

Wenger angry that Arsenal had 33 shots but only one goal against Man Utd!

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Jose Mourinho did a number on Arsenal once again to see us drop back to 5th place again, 7 points behind today's opponents Man United and 12 points behind the leaders Manchester City, who still have a game in hand. Arsenal were unbelievably 2-0 down in just 10 minutes due to two defensive mistakes but [.

Arsenal v Man United Review -Arsenal get sucker punched by Defensive mistakes

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Wenger said before the game that Alexandre Lacazette would not be fit for this game, but he was named in the Arsenal starting line-up, so we definitely had our best XI on the pitch. But we couldn't have got off to a worst start as Man United were 1-0 up in just four minutes through [...]

Arsenal v Huddersfield Review – Another Ozil masterclass makes it easy in the end…

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Arsene Wenger resisted the temptation to rotate the team, and with Ozil back from his illness Wenger fielded Arsenal's very best team, in fact the same one that destroyed Tottenham a week and a half ago, and they looked lively straight from the start. Within three minutes Aaron Ramsey did a beautiful little flick just [.

You have to feel sorry for Burnley who just can't get a point of Arsenal in the Premier League. The Gunners have won every single game against them since they came into the top flight and for the third time in a row it has come down to the dying minutes for things to go [...]

It was most disappointing to win the Group with this performance but the team were unlucky not to come away with a point. After three wins this second string have gone downhill with little left to play for until the next round it must be hard to get motivated. We would hope that they would [...]

Arsenal lose again to a “no-penalty” penalty! But was it a fair decision? (plus Video)

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
I know it didn't matter in the great scheme of things, but it was embarrassing for Arsenal's previously unbeaten reserve side to lose at the home of the Bundesliga's rock bottom side, Cologne. We had all the possession, but without any end product bar hitting the post it took a usual dodgy penalty decision against [.

We have all been waiting for this one and it felt like it would never start. But finally it kicks off but the butterflies just won't go away.... It got off to a very lively start and the first 20 minutes was end to end stuff, and both Kane and Lacazette both looking very dangerous, [...]

Why was the uninspiring Walcott Arsenal’s captain last night?

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Theo Walcott may have been the longest-serving Arsenal player on the pitch last night, but when has he ever showed any leadership skills or battling qualities to deserve the right to inspire our youngsters to play the Arsenal Way? There were other more-inspiring players on the pitch, like Jack Wilshere for starters, or even Francis [.

Arsenal v Swansea Player Ratings – Kolasinac best in shakey performance

Just Arsenal at related • 1 view
Arsenal made hard work of beating Swansea yesterday but, considering the Swans record at the Emirates, it was a welcome three points. Saed Kolasinac was again very impressive with a goal and an assist for Aaron Ramsey, but it was hardly a World Class performance from the Gunners ahead of next week's tough trip to [.
