The next two days could turn out to be the most important of the season for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger. A humbling and humiliating Champions League defeat by Borussia Dortmund on the back of a stuttering start to the Premier League season has left us teetering on the brink of disaster. Morale and self belief [.
Obviously it will not be any use to Arsenal tonight in the Champions League away to Borussia Dortmund, or the Premier League game at Aston Villa this weekend, but Arsene Wenger is optimistic that the injury to our French right back may not be nearly as bad as first feared. Speaking in the pre-match press [.
Injuries and Arsenal are two words that have gone together way too often in the last few years and so are we really surprised to hear that our new right back, Mathieu Debuchy, might be out of action for as much as two months after picking up an ankle problem in the 2-2 draw with [...]
IN some ways, the summer transfer window that recently closed was one of the best for Arsenal fans in many a year, with some really exciting players like Alexis Sanchez coming in. But looking at it from another point of view, it was yet another disappointing one for us long suffering Gooners. If you count [.
When the Arsenal Player of the Year for last season appeared to turn his ankle on that awful £G artificial pitch in Andorra right at the end of the Wales international game this week, Arsene Wenger must have been cursing his luck. It was the last international game of the two week break and we [...]
At first I thought that Arsenal were getting the same bad luck as last season when, after the likes of Gibbs and Arteta had picked up little knocks, our main centre forward Olivier Giroud was ruled out for the rest of the year after an innocuous challenge at the end of the Everton game. But [...]
Arsenal have had to do without the flying England forward for about nine months now and there is no doubt that we have really missed him. Losing his pace was particularly damaging in the latter half of last season, because with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also missing the Gunners were bereft of any pace on the flanks [.
It is still not absolutely certain that either Aaron Ramsey or Mesut Ozil will be fit enough to start the big Premier League clash with Man City at the Emirates stadium on Saturday, but the chances are looking a lot bigger than they were yesterday. And if both Arsenal midfielders or either one is not [.
Just when Arsenal thought they had come through the two week international break with no real injury and fitness concerns, our star midfielder Aaron Ramsey seemed to pick up an injury in the last few minutes of Wales' hard fought win in Andorra. The referee had not been helping Wales by allowing the Andorran players [.
Arsenal: Two players who have been under-utilized by SE The Gunners have it all to do, if they are to compete for more silverware this season, following the FA Cup win from last May. Wenger's wizards, after pummeling Manchester City in the FA Community shield, haven't had an enviable start to their campaign, which, so [.
When Mikel Arteta picked up an ankle injury in Arsenal's away game at Besiktas, there were fears he might miss quite a few games. And I started to worry about the Arsenal injury crisis of last season coming back to plague us again, with Kieran Gibbs having picked up a knock in the previous game. [...
Upcoming international break is ‘gold dust' for Arsenal's squad by SE There is something about injuries and Arsenal that keeps them together, always. One season after another, Arsenal seem to lose their most important players through injuries, and long term ones at that. But one staunch reason behind such ‘misfortune' has to be the number [.
As expected from the initial scan, Arsenal will have to face a long time without our first choice centre forward Olivier Giroud. Arsene Wenger revealed the news after the Gunners narrowly made it into the group stage of the Champions League. The boss revealed that his fellow Frenchman has already had surgery on his fratured [.
It is far from being an ideal situation for Arsenal in the Champions League play-off tonight. We simply need to beat Besiktas in the second leg at the Emirates tonight, but the injury to Olivier Giroud has left Arsene Wenger in a very tricky situation. Because of the World Cup and injuries disrupting our pre-season [.
There are many Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that Arsenal will be looking to buy another striker in the wake of the injury to Olivier Giroud, but Arsene Wenger has made it clear that he already has enough strikers on his books to cover the loss of our centre-forward. The Frenchman said in the Mirror: "In [.
Some things never seem to change for Arsenal. The Gunners were already struggling a little with a mounting injury list after Kieran Gibbs and Mikel Arteta joined the likes of Theo Walcott and Serge Gnabry in the treatment room. And those two injuries were picked up in the first two competitive games of the season.
Arsenal Football Club have had much more than their fair share of injuries in recent years, with last season pushing the bounds of bad luck to something like a curse. And we are already seeing the same sort of thing again, with Arteta, Sanogo, Gnabry, Gibbs, Miyaichi, Walcott and Ospina in the treatment room.
Were any of us really surprised to hear that Arsenal have already got a couple of injury problems to cope with? After just one properly competitive game of the new season, the Gunners must travel to the intimidating atmosphere of Istanbul to face Besiktas without two of the starters from Saturday's narrow win over Crystal [.
It could be dangerous to play with Monreal and Chambers against Palace this weekend News is coming out that Koscielny has sustained an injury that will rule him out of this weekend's game and could see him miss that all important game against Besiktas midweek. But without Koscielny for the game against Palace, we will [.
Injuries and Arsenal are two words that been synonymous with each other in recent years. And last season reached a whole new level, with the Gunners losing more player days to injury than any other Premier League team. About twice as many as our big rivals, and there is no doubt that it affected Arsenal's [.
Wenger is building this squad with versatility in mind by KJ David Ornstein reported that Calum Chambers had a medical with Arsenal yesterday and it seems like the young English defender will be an Arsenal player for a fee of around £10 million. But the reason we've brought him in is not because he can [.
It might sound a bit daft to be talking about Jack Wilshere running out of time to get his Arsenal career back on track, as the lad is only 22-years old and has missed so much time due to a string of injuries, but he certainly cannot afford to stand still for too long, or [...]
Matthieu Flamini is in a confident mood ahead of the new Arsenal season, and reckons that if the Gunners can get over our injury problems there is no reason why we cannot win more trophies in the coming season. In the transfer window all Arsenal fans are hoping for new arrivals, but surely if we [...
Why this is Jack Wilshere's season by AT It's been three seasons now since Wilshere suffered an injury that would rule him out of an entire year of football and would lead him to have surgery that could've potentially ended his footballing career. Now he's played for the majority of the last two seasons but [.
It looks like the awful run of luck that Arsenal had with injuries last season has carried over in to the World Cup finals in Brazil, as yet another Gunner has picked up a problem that could jeopardise their role at the tournament. This will surely be a worry to Arsenal fans, not just about [...]
A Possible Reason for Arteta's 2013-14 Season by KC So I've been an Arsenal fan my entire life, but I did not follow the Premier League heavily until 2011. By this time, Cesc was 4 million pounds emptier and Nasri evolved into Ca$hri. It was also the same year Wenger decided to bring in Mikel [...]
Injuries eh, Arsenal fans? How sick have we become of hearing about Arsenal players picking up knocks, whether it be while playing for club and country, it would be easy to think that lady luck had it in for the Gunners, or that they are made of glass. Recent years r4eveal a catalogue of long [...]
The Arsenal boss may not be too happy about this, but it looks like Roy Hodgson is planning to take a risk on the fitness of Gunners midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Following England's undeserved defeat to Italy in the opening group stage game, Hodgson knows that he needs to win, or at the every least to [.
It is great news for England and, obviously, great news for the Arsenal youngster Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. After picking up a knee ligament injury which threatened to wreck the dynamic 20-year old's summer in Brazil, Chamberlain has been hard at work in training, trying desperately to get himself fit and ready to help his country progress [.
This is not the video of the Arsenal and England striker Theo Walcott taunting the Tottenham fans with his 2-0 gesture as he was carried round the Emirates pitch on a stretcher, which was a quality moment for us Gooners. Unfortunately, what had seemed like an innocuous twist of the knee turned out to be [.
Arsenal Wrap Up Deal For World-Class Fitness Coach by A.T. Following the £42.5 million capture of German playmaker Mesut Ozil last summer, Arsenal fans will be very optimistic going into this summer's transfer window. With so many top names linked with a move to North London, it certainly does seem as though Arsene Wenger is [.
Although Arsenal Football Club will be well represented at the FIFA football extravaganza that is the World Cup finals, the Gunners are a bit thin on the ground when it comes to England. Theo Walcott was already ruled out through injury, of course, but it looks like we might not see too much of Jack [.
It was after all the injuries to various players had finally seen Arsenal lose their place at the top of the Premier League table, that Arsene Wenger admitted there was a problem. And with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain possibly having to miss the World Cup and the start of next season, the subject is fresh in out [.
Every Arsenal fan, but especially the ones that are England fans as well, should be crossing their fingers and hoping for some good news on the medical front today. Because today is the day that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will undergo a scan to determine what damage he incurred in last night's international friendly.
Every time I wrote an article during the season just gone, bemoaning Arsenal's terrible luck with injuries, and other things like referees and cup draws, I was accused of being biased, blinkered and a bad loser. Well here is the proof that although I may be a bad loser and biased, I am not blinkered.
Arsenal fans were given their first big injury scare of the summer today, over two weeks before the World Cup finals kick off in Brazil. And it was Aaron Ramsey who is the subject of concern, despite the fact that our young Welsh star has not had to train or play since the Gunners lifted [...]
The England manager Roy Hodgson has told the world that his Brazil-bound squad will be picked on the players season-long form rather than the last few games of the season, and it is expected that Arsenal's Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be named in the early 30-man squad list. Neither of these youngsters have [.
Arsene Wenger has just one Premier League game left before the big one. I/m sure that the Frenchman already has a pretty good idea of his Arsenal starting line-up to run out at Wembley and try to finally add to that FA cup the Gunners won in 2005, but there will be some players hoping [...]
It was a sad sign of things to come for Arsenal, when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who had provided the assist for our first goal of the season, was ruled out after just one game and then spent around five months in the treatment room. And if that was disappointing for the team, it was even more [...]
