Without wanting to be too confident or allowing any element of complacency to creep into the Arsenal team ahead of this weekend's Premier League game, Arsene Wenger has spoken to Arsenal Player about his belief that the Gunners should return from Carrow Road to north London with another win and a very important three points [.
Arsenal fans were screaming all summer for Arsene Wenger to buy another striker to give some real competition to Olivier Giroud, in the common knowledge that Danny Welbeck is totally unproven to be capable of being prolific, and also knowing that Theo Walcott has never managed to play a full season, as winger OR striker.
Arsenal have already bounced back verey well from the defeat away to West Brom last week, putting in an emphatic and exciting performance in the Champions League to blow the Croatian club Dinamo Zagreb off the park with our fluent football and great goals. But the Gunners must do the same again this weekend as [.
This is one of the weirdest bits of Arsenal news this week. It has been revealed that the Gunners have decided to risk getting jet-lag this weekend by taking a plane from Luton Airport to Norfolk ahead of this Premier League fixture, and it may affect our players co-ordination in the match. No, but seriously.
It is headlines like these that should make Arsenal fans worry. by Jansen Arsenal confident that star man Alexis Sanchez can shake off hamstring injury ahead of weekend trip to Norwich How often have we heard Wenger admit he might have brought a player back a bit too early from an injury? Or how often [.
My personal pet peeve is well known to all AA readers – its fickle fans!
The Gunners are my choice of team by way of my family and where I was born; I had little option other than to support Arsenal as the "other" choice up in N17 was a taboo name on Avenell Road and 3 of my cousins and one Uncle had already become outcasts from the family due to their unfortunate choice.
We have all seen how Alexis Sanchez can look totally knackered at the end of a game, and then three days later yet again run around like he has had a month's rest in the Caribean, and it has not escaped Arsene Wenger's attention either. "When he does something he does it 100 per cent," [...]
Both Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker spoke about how the precarious position that the club will be in as we head into final game of the Champions League group phase. There are no gray areas and the fact that Arsenal have a clear and unequivocal task ahead, they believe, could help us [.
It was a big plus point for Arsenal fans to hear this week that Aaron Ramsey was back in training after an injury lay off and Arsene Wenger had no hesitation in putting the name of the Wales international midfielder straight in to the match day squad, although Ramsey did not start but came one [...]
The chances of Arsene Wenger adding another two forward players to the current squad of Arsenal players are slim in the extreme. In fact it would probably take at least two more players on the injury list for that to happen and even then I would have my doubts. But there is a chance that [...]
Just as the vultures of doubt in the football media were beginning to circle around Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal team, as they are always ready and willing to do at the least sign of weakness, the Gunners go and produce a fine and thrilling performance with three very good goals. While that now has [.
As usual the Arsenal fans have been getting some mixed messages from Arsene Wenger and the club about the extent of the injury to our French central midfield star Francis Coquelin and about how long we can expect it to be before the Gunners have his battling skills back in the team. A month, two [...
Petr Cech has vast experience in the Champions League and has come away with a winners medal and a runners-up medal with Chelsea. Now he wants to try and emulate that success with this Arsenal side, but first of all we have to reach the knockout stages. According to Petr, the final Group game in [...
AUDIOPOST Arsene Wenger was in a very good mood after his makeshift Arsenal team destroyed Dinamo Zagreb 3-0 and he even made a couple of jokes with the assembled hacks after the game. Overall he was very happy with the performance and he now believes that the Gunners will now progress to the knockout [.
Stubborn is a word that Arsenal fans have often used to describe our long serving manager so it was no great surprise to hear Arsene Wenger talking about his belief that there is enough strength in depth in the Arsenal squad to be able to cope with the injury picked up by Francis Coquelin at [...]
The Champions League match between Arsenal and the Croatian club Dinamo Zagreb at the Emirates this evening was already shaping up to be a crunch clash, with the winner probably keeping their slim hopes of qualifying for the next phase of the competition alive and also putting themselves in a strong position to at least [.
You've got to be in it to win it by DP As we enter our fifth Champions League Group game, we have to face the facts. We have lost three of our four games so far and have a -4 goal difference. There is very little chance of any of the big teams we may [...]
A MWG or a MLG or even a MDG? If Olympiakos get a point in Munich it doesn't matter anyway.
My opinion is that we should give it the full beans, attack from the first, if we are two up by half-time bring on the kids and look forward to a trip to Greece. If we start slowly, go in even at half-time then fight out a tough 1-0 whilst picking up an injury or two would it be considered a successful evening.
It is obvious that UEFA don't like being criticised and they have made that abundantly clear to Arsenal after Arsene Wenger spoke out about playing against "many doped teams" in his career. Most recently one of Dinamo Zagreb's players, Arijan Ademi, was banned for four years after being tested positively for taking an anabolic steroid [.
Things can only get betterby Sam P So matchday is finally upon us and Arsenal can banish the negativity from Saturdays unlikely defeat at West Brom by getting revenge on Zagreb. Not only to regain the feelgood factor, but also to give us a real chance of going through to the knockout rounds if Bayern [.
Wenger must stop gambling by Jansen. Wenger is a very good manager, It is hard to doubt that, buthis hugedownfall is his lack of ambition. He seems to prefer gambling over improving the odds. It was a gamble having not boughta quality striker for several years in my opinion.It was arguably an even bigger gamble [.
We are still waiting for a more detailed progress report on the injury to the combative French midfielder Francis Coquelin, but in the Arsenal press conference today ahead of the home Champions League game against Dinamo Zagreb, Arsene Wenger gave the latest update and it is bad news for the Gunners, as we expected it [.
I think we were all looking forward to taking three points from the game and putting pressure on City at the top of the Premiership. Sadly that was not to be.
There were sufficient omens before the game to dampen our expectations. We had half a team in the treatment room, we were playing a Pulis side which is morphing into his old Stoke City just as they are throwing off their Orc reputation and starting to play football.
A bad weekend got even worse for Arenal fans with the news from L'Équipe journalist Bruno Constant that Francis Coquelin is facing "most probably" at least 3 months on the sidelines after injuring his knee in the first-half against West Brom.
Coquelin went down in the loss to West Brom on a 50-50 challenge with Claudio Yacob, and manager Arsene Wenger said after the match
What else could go wrong for Arsenal? by DN We may have had an awful day today, but the worst is yet to come when we find out the result of the scan on Francis Coquelin's knee tomorrow or Monday. He, for sure, will not be playing on Tuesday and probably nor will his backup [...]
Arsene Wenger seems to be quite stoic about Arsenal's amazing defeat to West Brom yesterday afternoon, and he seems resigned to the fact that the Gunners just didn't have a lot of luck during the game, which is quite true I guess. In this interview with TalkSport after the match he is quite clear that [.
It was certainly a crazy day for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger was obviously very annoyed during the game, but when you see a stat that says the Gunners had 73% possession you can only be left scratching your head as to what went wrong. We had a good team out on paper and when Olivier [...]
