Arsenal game review

Arsenal

Wenger blames the ref but actually Arsenal were rubbish

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
So another away game for Arsenal and yet another defeat, but (look on the bright side!) at least we scored our first goal on our travels at last! Watford played with confidence and belief, which is more than we could say about our players, and they certainly were looking for a winner right up until [.

Arsenal’s great performance even more important than the result against Chelsea

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Anyone who watched Arsenal's abysmal defeat to Liverpool in our last away game would have been forgiven for thinking they were watching a completely different side to the one that turned up at Stamford Bridge yesterday. This was a team of fighters that played fast free-flowing football and looked in control of the Champions for [.

Are you disappointed Arsenal didn’t beat Chelsea? Our defenders are…!

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
I think that yesterday's game at Stamford Bridge was one of the most exciting 0-0 draws I have seen for some time, and although we had quite a few chances I believe that one point apiece was a fair result in the end, but the Arsenal wing-back Hector Bellerin is disappointed that we didn't take [...]

Oh wow, what a surprise, we got hammered. by Konstantin Mitov Hello fellow Arsenal people! Do I need to remind you of the result? One team played a game in midweek, a champions league game, and another had time to rest and guess which one looked tired and out of ideas? Arsenal of course. I [...]

Arsene delivers exactly what his new contract promised the same old Arsenal results! by Konstantin Mitov Same mistakes again. People can call me negative all day long, but I was right again. I said that giving him a new contract wouldn't change a thing and it took 2 games to prove this correct. I [..

Arsenal still need a centre-back but our strike force looks great (except for contract rebels…)

If we fix the defence, Arsenal have a lot to offer up front by Konstantin Hello lovely Arsenal people! The first round of the premier league has gone by, and although making conclusions after one game is silly, there are some things to consider. We conceded 3 sloppy goals, two from our mistakes and one [.

Arsenal v Chelsea review – Gunners come from behind to win on penalties!!

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
When I saw the Arsenal and Chelsea teams selected for this Community Shield clash by Arsene Wenger and Antonio Conte I was a bit concerned, as we seemed to be missing a lot more key players than our opponents. Before the game we knew that Chelsea would be without Hazard, Costa and Bakayoke while Arsenal [.

Kolasinac impresses in positive Arsenal win over Benfica

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
The new Arsenal signing Sead Kolasinac made a brilliant home debut yesterday against Benfica, and he came out of the traps in style and had a hand in three of Arsenal's five goals. He practically singlehandedly created the first goal for Theo Walcott and his forward runs gave him a hand in both Walcott's second [.

Has Wenger earned new Arsenal contract with FA Cup win?

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
No matter what the naysayers keep saying about Arsene Wenger, the fact is that the boss has led Arsenal to their third FA Cup win in 4 years, and against a record-breaking Chelsea team. Not only that he has become the most successful manager in the history of the FA Cup, having won 7 trophies [...]

Is it now time for the Arsenal fans to judge Wenger?

Is it time to judge Wenger now? by Konstantin Mitov The Europa league. Pathetic, shambolic. The end of Sanchez and Ozil. Where are the AKBs now? Judge him in May, they said. And I am ready for the hammer of Justice. It will be a disaster of catastrophic magnitudes if he stays. The worst thing [...]

Great post from a Sunderland fan who feels sorry for Arsenal fans!

Just Arsenal at related • 2 views
There is nothing like a bit of perspective, which is usually very lacking in Arsenal fans. Gooners will moan about losing to Bayern Munich and Chelsea, while Sunderland fans are cheering all two wins they have managed this year while spiralling to bottom spot in the Premier League! I just had to laugh when I [.

Arsenal v Sunderland Player Ratings – Alexis takes the biscuit!

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
There was a record amount of goal attempts by Arsenal yesterday against Sunderland, and Mesut Ozil created a record number of chances, but I just have to give the MOTM to Alexis Sanchez, who scored two goals but could have scored loads if it wasn't for a few misses and a world class performance by [.

Arsenal v Sunderland Review – Pickford stops Arsenal scoring a hat-full!

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Well I must say this was a very strange first half. How on Earth Arsenal didn't score is totally beyong me, but although the Gunners had all the possession and were throwing everything at the Sunderland goal, there was absolutely no way the ball was going in. Sunderland were defending dourly but Arsenal never seemed [.

Why don’t Arsenal play like this, when things are in our own hands?

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Better! Much better. Superb. by Konstantin Mitov I have to say that after Crystal Palace and the way fans turned on the players, they started to actually do something. Why don't they do it every game? We went to Stoke, a place where our record is poor and we destroyed them. The ref helped them [...]

Arsenal set to rotate against Stoke – but who should be rested?

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Even though the Gunners have another tough fixture away at Stoke City this evening, Arsene Wenger is set to rotate the Arsenal squad as his players face their third League game in six days. They have managed to beat Man United and also a tough awayday at Southampton, but the limits of the squad will [.

Southampton v Arsenal review – Wenger can still do the impossible!

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
The first half was a very cagey affair, with Arsenal not trying to concede and Southampton trying to score! But both teams had a fair amount of time on the ball, but there was no side looking the slightest like being in control. Arsenal were very patient and were looking like they wanted to tire [...

Arsenal v Man United Player Ratings – The Ox MOTM in a pleasing win

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
It was a great, if surprising, Arsenal win over Man United yesterday afternoon and there were some good performances from quite a few players, although our star men Alexis and Ozil seemed a little more subdued than normal. The Ox, Gibbs, Welbeck and Ramsey made it look like we actually have a British Core again.

Was it the new formation that won it for Arsenal?

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
It seems like a bit of an anticlimax now that Arsene Wenger has finally managed to beat Jose Mourinho in the League, and there is an argument that the fact that Arsenal are now playing the 3-4-3 formation that seems to be favoured by most top managers nowadays. Admittedly Wenger also seems to pick different [.

This result just shows how much we need change

This is the logical conclusion of years of going backwards. by Konstantin Mitov We learn lessons the hard way. And this is the hardest ways of them all. You see, we can change formations, change the players, but we're ignoring the real issue in the Arsenal coat. Untill he's gone nothing really matters.

Wenger proud of Arsenal’s united team performance in Man City win

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
There were many Arsenal fans (especially on this site according to some of yesterday's comments) that fully expected the Gunners to get humiliated by Man City yesterday, but the team responded with a show of mental strength to come back from a 1-0 deficit to earn a place against Chelsea in the FA Cup Final.

Finally, a performance to make the Arsenal fans proud! by Konstantin Mitov Hello everybody and what a fine weekend for us it has been. We reached the FA cup final for the 3rd time in 4 years and one North London team didn't make it there. I ate so much banter this season that finally [...]

Arsenal Debate – We can still win every single game and make the Top Four?

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Arsenal may not have looked too impressive last night against Middlesbrough, but the only important thing right now is to get three points out of every single game, so this win will go some way to boosting our confidence ahead of our daunting run-in. Arsene Wenger has been taking a lot of stick in the [.

Liverpool v Arsenal Review – Alexis tries to rescue a point but not quite….

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Arsenal fans everywhere were bemused by Arsene Wenger's team selection even before the game started, with Alexis Sanchez dropped to the bench, Mesut Ozil out with the flu, and Walcott, Perez and Ramsey also sitting alongside Alexis. And our fears were proved correct as Liverpool immediately took full control of the game and were easily [.

Are Hull right to feel aggrieved by Arsenal result?

Hull City manager Marco Silva insists that the scoreline in 2-0 defeat to Arsenal was unjust, and admittedly he has some reasons to feel hard done-by. The Gunners took the lead in the first halffortunately. A clearance near the line was hit up onto Alexis Sanchez's hand, before going over the line, and with his [.

Arsenal v Watford Player Ratings – Sanchez best of a woeful bunch

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
After giving my best ever ratings for the win against Southampton, I am very sad to have to post one of the worst for this abysmal home defeat to Watford. One thing should be said... this was a completely different side than the one that beat the Saints. This one was supposed to be Wenger's [...]

Wenger – Swansea worked hard and Arsenal were lucky

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Considering their position in the table, Paul Clement's Swansea side looked confident and stylish at the start of yesterday's game against Arsenal, and for the first half an hour they looked like they could take something from the game, until Olivier Giroud got his customary goal a game to give the Gunners a half-time lead.

Wenger thinks Arsenal should have scored more at West Ham!

It was great to see Arsenal scoring freely again in our scintillating 5-1 at West Ham United, but good old Arsene Wenger regrets that we didn't score more of our chances in the first half! Wenger said when he was asked if he thought the second half was impressive. "You can say that, but we [...]

Why were Southampton ‘sharper and fitter’ than Arsenal?

Arsenal overcome the nerves to get past dangerous Bournemouth

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
After already playing out three draws in Nasty November, Arsenal could easily have made it four yesterday and we would have had to change the name to Nervous November as Bournemouth managed to create many chances to get a second equaliser before Alexis Sanchez put the game to bed in the 90th minute. Arsene Wenger [.

Arsenal were more steel than style at Old Trafford

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Arsenal came away from yesterday's game at Man United with a point, despite lacking the usual freeflowing attacking football that we are used to seeing. In fact the Gunners did not have a shot on target until Olivier Giroud's late late equaliser from Oxlade-Chamberlain's superb cross. Most Gooners were at a loss to understand why [.

Arsenal player ratings from NLD draw – Ozil MOTM

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
Even though the summer signing Granit Xhaka had probably his best game in an Arsenal shirt since his transfer from the Bundesliga, I thought that Mesut Ozil just edged him as our best player in the draw with Tottenham yesterday. The German did produce the wicked free kick that led to our goal, after all, [.

Which Arsenal reserves impressed you against Reading?

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
I was going to write "Which Arsenal youngsters" but we can hardly put Oxlade-Chamberlain, Giroud, Perez or Jenkinson in that bracket. Even Martinez and Elneny are 24 years old! So we can hardly say that we put out a youth team which we have done in previous years. The Ox was certain to win the [...]

Arsenal v Reading Review – The Ox stars in both halves

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views
So Arsenal reserves came to impress Arsene Wenger, but the Championship side Reading had a little flurry at the start. In fact they had 75% possession in the first 15 minutes! Slowly but surely the Gunners took control but the pace was a little pedestrian but the passing was mostly accurate. Oxlade-Chamberlain and Iwobi looked [.

So Arsenal were lucky – but the defence deserves extra credit!

Most Arsenal fans will agree that yesterday's game was not the usual Arsenal style of sexy attacking football that we have seen in the last few weeks, but the fact is that we somehow managed to sneak the 3 points in the end, albeit in controversial circumstances. But of course our French Prof was trying [.

Wenger – Experienced Arsenal didn’t panic and we got a point

We could all see that Arsenal were totally outplayed in the first half in Paris, and even Arsene Wenger admitted it (although he didn't mention the starting line up!). But he was pleased that the team showed their experience and didn't panic, and even managed to come back into it in the second half. Le [.
