There is an argument that the biggest thing holding back Arsenal Football Club, after the years of financial hardship finally came to an end that is, has been the injury and fitness situation. So the signs that this is now coming to an end with the help of some new conditioning experts on the back [.
It could turn out to be the most important piece of transfer business done by Arsene Wenger for Arsenal in many a long year and the good news, Gooners, is that we have already done it. In fact it was done about a year ago and I do not mean the transfer of Alexis Sanchez [...]
I have been banging on for over two years now about how, if Arsenal did not have bad luck then we would have no luck at all. Some of that feeling came from decisions by referees and their assistants and some from the cup draws we wre getting, but mostly it was down to the [...]
The current star of the Arsenal team Alexis Sanchez was on international duty again last night and he helped his Chile team mates defeat Uruguay in a hard fought Copa America quarter final to book their place in the semi-final. But he was lucky to come through the game unscathed as Uruguay put themselves about [.
We fans of Arsenal have been guilty of this ourselves, with a large number still getting on the back of our centre forward Olivier Giroud at any opportunity. So we should not have been surprised to see a lot of blame aimed at the big man after a couple of below par performances saw the [...]
While Arsene Wenger was having to try and keep Arsenal winning in four competitions with almost a full team of players missing due to various injury and fitness problems, I was always surprised to hear members of the football media and even Arsenal fans dismiss the affect that this was having. I wonder if those [.
There are some suggestions that Arsene Wenger could be set to include the Wales international star Aaron Ramsey in the Arsenal starting line up for the Premier League home game against Swansea City on Monday night, despite the fact that the midfielder picked up a hefty knock in our last game against Hull a few [.
As I said in an earlier post on this website and have said before, I am one of the Arsenal fans that has not lost patience with our England international midfielder Jack Wilshere. I still believe that the 23-year old has just been unlucky with his injury problems and believe that he could still turn [.
Our captain and leader Mikel Arteta has not played for Arsenal since last November, but the 33 year-old has now revealed on Arsenal.com that he expects to rejoin the first team squad in the next "week or two". Arteta's contract runs out in June and he has already spoken of his desire to stay if [...]
Injuries...yes please! By ThirdManJW As we reach the end of the season, and take a moment of reflection...what has been the main positive?. Has it been the instant impact of Sanchez, the rebirth of Ozil, big game mentality? I for one feel the main positive has actually been the injuries. Obviously they've had a negative [.
Arsene Wenger now has practically his whole Arsenal squad fit and ready (only Oxlade-Chamberlain is definitely out) ahead of this weekends FA Cup semifinal against Reading at Wembley, and it will be very interesting to see how many changes Le Prof makes for the game. Wenger is well-known for giving his fringe players a run [.
Many of us Arsenal fans thought we had seen the last of Abou Diaby in an Arsenal shirt as his contract is nearing an end and that one previous appearance this season, in the Capital One Cup defeat by Southampton in September, was followed by the latest in a ridiculously long string of injury problems.
You will not find many Arsenal fans who would disagree with the statement that the France international centre back Laurent Koscielny is the best defender in the Gunners´ squad. And now that our BFG Per Mertesacker seems to have shaken off the dip in form affecting his performances before the international break, that central pairing [.
It is absolutely brilliant news for Arsenal that their treatment room has been emptied, and Jack Wilshere, Matthieu Debuchy, Abou Diaby, Serge Gnabry and Mikel Arteta all played in Arsenal's Under 21 win over Stoke City reserves. Wilshere and Gnabry both played the whole game and Diaby even managed 70 minutes on the pitch, so [.
Theo Walcott injured a cruciate ligament in his knee in January 2014, but despite him playing his first comeback game in October last year the Arsenal striker is still deemed not to be at peak fitness yet. He played his first senior game in November but then suffered a groin injury while on England duty [.
It remains to be seen whether the Arsenal fans will get to see anything of our injury ravaged French central midfielder in the Arsenal first team this season, but Abou Diaby is back, or on his way back to match fitness at least. The 28-year old is in his 10th season at the club and [...]
With his all action performance at Old Trafford in the FA cup, the Arsenal and Germany star Mesut Özil even made the former Man United midfielder Paul Scholes eat his words. The pundit's recent criticism of our club record signing was, for me, based more on his price tag and the performances of the playmaker [.
Jack Wilshere is out injured at the moment but is expected to return to the Arsenal squad in a couple of weeks. The terrier has been playing as a defensive midfielder for England although Arsene Wenger considers him to be more of an attacking force in the Premiership. The Gunners already have a plethora of [.
There was some bad news for Arsenal on the injury front today, with both Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain not due to be available until after the international break at the earliest, so they won't be able to help us in the Premier League against West Ham or Newcastle and will play no part in [.
I may be wrong of course, but I have a feeling that the Arsenal and England star Jack Wilshere might already be back in training with his club team mates by now and could have featured in one of the Gunners' next three games, if there was not an international break just around the corner. [...]
I must admit I am a bit surprised that Wenger has said that Wojciech Szczesny will return to the Arsenal Starting XI on Monday night. I thought that the little statement about Szczesny having a virus (before the QPR game) was Wenger's way of letting us know Ospina would keep his place against United, but [.
We were all over the moon when Arsene Wenger finally fixed Arsenal's lack of defensive options by buying Gabriel in January, but it now seems that we are back to square one for the next few weeks. Everyone at JustArsenal thought that Gabriel would start alongside Koscielny for last night's game against QPR, but it [.
I am sure that Arsene Wenger would have liked to be able to ease the Arsenal and Wales international star Aaron Ramsey back into the Gunners side, perhaps with a run out as a sub tomorrow night against QPR and then again at Old Trafford in the FA cup on Monday night. Ramsey's previous return [...]
The latest injury news today should cheer up Arsenal fans, as it has been revealed that Francis Coquelin is likely to be ready to play against QPR tomorrow, but also the fact that Aaron Ramsey has returned to the fold after a few weeks enforced rest. Ramsey was the star of last campaign and has [...]
I appreciate the fact that Arsene Wenger has always looked after the Arsenal players and shown them great loyalty and respect. It has often been said by current and former players that the Frenchman is like a father figure to them and that is great. But there must be a limit and there comes a [...]
I am not going to go into the reasons for Arsenal almost certainly having to go another season without the coveted Premier League title, suffice it to say that there are about as many opinions on the subject, from AKBs and AOBs alike, as there are fans of the club. But that is the way [...]
Arsene Wenger has given us the latest update on the injury and fitness situation at Arsenal Football Club. And while there is a little doubt about two more of the players, the news is generally good and positive as we head into a crucial and busy period of the season. The Frenchman revealed on the [.
It was not just the swelling of the knee caused by Alexis Sanchez getting a heavy tackle as Arsenal struggled to beat Leicester City last week that has caused concern for Arsene Wenger this week. The Frenchman also revealed that he was a bit worried about the impact that the Chile international star was having [.
The Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger made a big mistake last week against Leicester by allowing Alexis Sanchez to stay on the pitch after getting injured in the first half, and he admitted his error after the game. Having realised that, he has now decided that he must not listen to his star player but start [.
Arsenal have consistently suffered more injuries than every other team in the Premiership, and the case of Aaron Ramsey pulling up with his third hamstring strain of the season has yet again highlighted the Gunners ongoing problems with muscular injuries to their players. According to the former Wales assistant coach Raymond Verheijen firmly lays the [.
Wilshere comeback is perfect timing for Arsenal by Sam P It is just typical of the injury situation at Arsenal that we appear to have lost two key players after the Leicester game and that they were both coming back from injury problems when the next one occurred. Fingers crossed but it does not seem [.
On a day when Arsenal fans should be celebrating our elevation back into the Top Four (and back above Tottenham) we are instead discussing a woeful performance against a Leicester side that are rock bottom of the Premier League. The Gunners DID manage to hang on to take the barely-deserved three points but yet again [.
The latest news from Arsenal on the injury situation is not entirely unexpected but it is still a heavy blow to take, especially with Saturday's trip to White Hart Lane for the north London derby having extra significance with our relative positions in the Premier League table. An Arsenal.com report has revealed that Arsene Wenger [.
With the imminent North London Derby coming up on Saturday morning, there will be much debate about which Arsenal players should be starting this crucial game on St Totteringham's Day. We are all hopeful that Alexis Sanchez will return to the side, but the latest injury news is suggesting that Danny Welbeck will also be [.
After the never-ending "sign dat ting!" saga in 2012/13 season, which ended with Theo Walcott signing a new Arsenal contract extension for three and a half years, it is no surprise that Arsene Wenger would want to start renewal talks a little earlier this time around, but is it just a little too early?
Arsene Wenger has revealed that Arsenal are sweating on the fitness os our star of the season so far Alexis Sanchez. A blow does not quite cover this news for Arsenal fans, it is more like a hurricane. The manager's latest injury update, revealed on the official Arsenal website, explains that the Chile international forward, [.
The name of Francis Coquelin has been on the lips of many an Arsenal fan in recent weeks, especially since his disciplined and destructive performance at the heart of the Gunners midfield helped to produce our first big away win in a long time. Although most Arsenal fans would still like to see Arsene Wenger [.
