I am not one of the many Arsenal fans that cannot wait for the club to replace Arsene Wenger as the man in charge. I have had my moans about the Frenchman but also feel that he has done a remarkable job in difficult circumstances for the last 10 years. But even the fans that [...]
I am not too sure what the Arsenal and Spain international midfielder Santi Cazorla has to smile about at the minute. The 29-year old ballooned a couple of great chances to get his scoring off the mark against Sunderland miles over the bar. The Spaniard has so far failed to take his chance to shine [.
I am fairly sure that I was not the only Arsenal fan to be a little bit surprised to see the Gunners starting XI for the trip to face Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. My main surprise was to see both Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini on the team sheet, but then Jack Wilshere [...]
"Ze 14:08 train to Finsbury Park? I deednotsee it"
Arsene Wenger is lending hisinimitable voice to a scheme being run by the London Underground as part of the Royal British Legion's annual 'Poppy Day' appeal that will see the Arsenal manager voicing station announcements around the Emirates Stadium this week.
As an Arsenal supporter for the past 67 years I want to thank Arsènefor his dedication to the Arsenal Football Club and his devotion to playing a calibre of football that is envied the world over. His 18 seasons in charge of Arsenal have been a revelation to many of us older fans who have witnessed many, many dark years where our support of the club was tested to the fullest.
Are Arsenal struggling because of the change in system? by SE For a whole lot of reasons — acceptable or aberrational — Arsene Wenger decided to adopt a new system, 4-1-4-1, replacing the in vogue 4-2-3-1 system. Two and a half months into the new season, and the Arsenal players are yet to adapt to [.
There are very few Arsenal fans that were impressed with the 2-0 away win at Sunderland this weekend, but the fact that we came away with all three points should alert us to the fact that we kept a clean sheet and capitalised on Sunderland's defensive errors. Mikel Arteta worked alongside Matthieu Flamini in central [.
With all the criticism of Arsene Wenger on JustArsenal over the last week, an outsider looking in would think it was safe to assume that Arsenal had lost their last two games and are way behind the leaders in the Premiership. But the reality is that we have WON our last two games and are [...]
There is another development in the Arsenal transfer rumour linking us with a possible swoop for the Borussia Dortmund star defender Mats Hummels in the January transfer window. According to a report in the Daily Star, one of our main rivals for the signature of Hummels has dropped out of the race. The paper claims [.
Now I'm sure no red blooded Arsenal supporter would admit to watching Strictly Come Dancing but maybe the missus has it on in the background or you've been forced to watch it as some sort of penance. For those that claim not to have seen it, the performance of the dancers isscored from 1 to 10. At the start of the series the scores are lower but towards the end the audience go into raptureswhen their favourite celebrity dancer is awarded a perfect 10.
There is one big thing that bothers me about one of the recent Arsenal transfer rumours, the one that suggests that Arsene Wenger is preparing a move for the West Ham and New Zealand international defender Winston Reid in the January transfer window. My concern is why, if Wenger wants the player and the player [.
The problems at Arsenal lie deeper than the surface by KM At the end of the past week, Arsenal managed to get two wins from two away games. On the surface that looks like a deal you would take at any time. The problem with AFC is that there is always a "but". We took [...]
Should Arsene Wenger be sacked? by TB I guess it is a sign of the times that ‘football' is likened to ‘trading' as a fellow ‘results business'. The Casino Economy meets The Premier League – even at the Arsenal! It's all about winners and losers after the Market paradigm, Murdoch's Sky TV and Global Capital [.
I don't know about the rest of you Arsenal fans, but I think we should be feeling pretty lucky right now. Arsenal have had plenty of bad luck, but to find ourselves just off the top four and ahead of our big rivals Liverpool and Man United and just three points behind Man City after [...]
Arsene Wenger made an illusion about the temperature that water boils at and compared it to the almost very good performances that Arsenal had been putting in at the start of the season, suggesting that the Gunners just needed a few extra degrees of temperature before we hit our own boiling point. Now I know [.
For three seasons between the summer of 2011 and the summer of this year, the current Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez was playing alongside and competing with the Spain international Pedro Rodriguez at La Liga club Barcelona. And according to one of the latest Arsenal transfer rumours, the same could soon be happening in north London.
He may have had more than his fair share of criticism since signing for Arsenal from Real Madrid last summer, but there is no doubt that Arsene Wenger sees the Germany international play maker as absolutely vital to his plans for the Gunners. And even though Ozil started this season a bit slowly after his [.
Arsenal made very hard work of beating Sunderland yesterday and the relief of scoring the second goal to secure the points didn't arrive until the 93rd minute due to another defensive error from the woeful Sunderland side that were beaten 8-0 in the preceding week. Arsene Wenger must have been very relieved himself and was [.
It seems a little bit churlish to complain about things that Arsene Wenger has done after Arsenal won an away game 2-0, but just as I look for positives after a disappointing result, I do feel that there were a few strange decisions from the Frenchman at Sunderland today. I can understand why Wenger was [.
I don't think it is too harsh on Arsenal and Arsene Wenger to say that the win away to Sunderland was a bit on the lucky side. The Gunners did score twice and keep a rare clean sheet, but that was mostly down to the poor performance of the home side rather than any real [...]
No Arsenal fan can be happy with the performances NOR the results by KM After being slaughtered every time I put Arsenal's faults down to the manager, he comes out once again to prove my points correct. Happy birthday Arsene, there are your three points. Taking the points was massive, because it means one more [.
Although Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta are back from their respective injuries, and Serge Gnabry and Theo Walcott will soon be featuring in Arsenal matches, Laurent Koscielny's injury appears to be a bit more serious than first expected. The central defender returned to London while on international duty earlier in the month because of an achilles injury.
Long trip up north for the fans especially after an away CL game.
Sunderland: haveyou ever been to Sunderland? I have. Went to watch the lads at the Stadium of Light in 2003, we won 4-0 with a Freddie hayrick. Do you know they have coal on the beaches and a freezing cold wind blowing in from the sea!
A traditional 3pm kick-off today, and what I'd give for a traditional one nil to the Arsenal. Don't get me wrong, I'd take a 2-0, a 3-1, a 4-3 or any shape of win, but a clean sheet would be nice given how often we've conceded this season.
The team news is that Jack Wilshere misses out through suspension having picked up five yellow cards, and I think Mikel Arteta will come into the midfield for him.
With Arsenal struggling with injury problems in the midfield department, just like everywhere else on the pitch, it is easy to see why Arsene Wenger played both Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere against Anderlecht on Wednesday. But it did not really work and there is a theory that the two central midfielders are too similar [.
You have to feel sorry for Abou Diaby. When he signed for Arsenal Football Club back in January 2006 as a 19-year old, Arsene Wenger clearly saw him as the natural successor to his fellow Frenchman and midfielder Patrick Vieira. And he was already starting to show that he could be when a horror tackle [.
One of the latest Arsenal transfer rumours could see the Gunners embroiled in a transfer battle with five other Premier League clubs, according to a report in The Mirror. And that could definitely turn into an interesting fight. The player involved, German international winger Karim Bellarabi, must be feeling quite good about himself after scouts [.
Arsenal seem to be operating under Murphy's Law at the moment, which states that anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. And with the defensive side of the Arsenal squad being the weakest right now, of course that means that Laurent Koscielny has now added even further to the problems, as reported by Sky [.
Arsene Wenger may not have much more time to make up his mind about this particular transfer target. Marco Reus of Borussia Dortmund has been linked with us for a long while and continues to be the subject of many Arsenal transfer rumours. But the talented and exciting Germany international will not come cheap and [.
I am not even going to try to claim that the two late goals which won the Champions League game against Anderlecht in Brussels last night were just rewards for the team's efforts. For most of the match, the Gunners just could not make things happen, even though we did control the ball for large [...]
