It is something that has become so much the norm that Arsenal fans hardly bother to even moan about it any more, but for some reason the football media seems to take pleasure in poking fun and being disrespectful to Arsenal, much more than any club, never mind the big clubs that make their jobs [...]
I must admit that I was more than surprised to see that the Arsenal team sheet for the Premier League home game against Hull City on Saturday did not include the name of Lukas Podolski, not even as a substitute. After the German striker had complained about his lack of time on the pitch this [...]
A BIG QUESTION In order to score more, do you need to be prepared to concede more? Let's face facts. City and Pool did last season and finished 1st and 2nd. They also played the most attractive and exciting football.
There have been a lot of doubts from Arsenal fans and memebers of the football media about why Arsene Wenger did not strengthen the Arsenal defence more in the summer transfer window. And for those of us that are not entirely convinced by Arsene Wenger's vague words about not being able to find the right [.
This is getting ridiculous. First a poor summer transfer policy left Arsenal woefully short of defenders, and now we hear that Arsenal will be forced to play their third choice goalkeeper in Wednesday's Champions League match with Anderlecht.
With first-choice keeper Wojciech Szczesny suspended for getting sent off in MatchDay 2 against Galatasaray, and his backup David Ospina unavailable due to injury, U21 goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez will be thrown into the first-team firing line in Belgium with academy goalkeeper Ryan Huddart likely to be named on the bench.
The Arsenal legend Ray Parlour watched Arsenal only end up with yet another point on Saturday, and he is very sure that the best that the Gunners can hope for this season is the usual Wenger Cup for scraping into the Champions League, but he doesn't even think that will be easy! 'I think Arsenal [...
Top 3 Centre-Backs Arsenal Could Sign In January - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
In the light of recent events at Arsenal Football Club, there is absolutely no doubt about that fact the squad is crying out for a new centre-back. An injury to Laurent Koscielny and a suspension to Calum Chambers saw Arsene Wenger have to deploy second-choice left-back Nacho Monreal alongside Per Mertesacker at the heart of the defence on Saturday against Hull.

Somehow Arsenal actually managed to move up one place in the Premier League table. If West Brom beat Man United tomorrow, which we hope they will, the Baggies could overtake us but because Swansea lost we are up to the dizzy heights of 7th. I don't need to tell you that the Gunners have flattered [..
I am not complaining about the bad luck that Arsenal have had so far this season, well not much anyway, but I do think that the start could have been so much better for the Gunners if we had just had a little bit better luck, or less good luck. Arsenal have had some harsh [...]
After Arsenal's 2-2 draw against Hull City on Saturday, BBC reporter Jacqui Oatley interviewed Arsene Wenger and asked him some point-blank questions about why he believes Arsenal are not winning as many matches as they should.
While the questions were pretty straightforward, Wenger was on the defensive and didn't like the manner of the questions.
With Arsenal once again showing our soft underbelly with a tame performance and a disappointing draw with Hull City at the Emirates yesterday, the need for more power and fight in the squad has become more urgent than ever. And according to the latest Arsenal transfer rumours, Arsene Wenger is finally ready to act and [.
IS ARSENE WENGER DOING CORROSIVE DAMAGE TO HIS REPUTATION by TorontoArsenal Despite the disappointing results of the past decade it appears fans of Arsenal FC, including myself, are powerless when it comes to being able to force through desperately needed changes because of Arsene Wenger's entrenched position within the Arsenal FC hierarchy.
Maybe Arsenal should try to start a new type of football where points are awarded for possession and passing statistics, because we absolutely rock at that side of the game. Until then, however, we need to find a way to win football matches the old boring traditional way. And that means scoring more goals than [.
So Wenger hurt Mourinho......Great! by By AondoaverK I have to admit that my best moment during the last Chelsea vs. Arsenal clash at Stamford bridge was the touchline spat between Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho. I felt like Le Prof won that round even though we lost the match by those two unreplied goals.
Wenger at a loss by Dave N Hello Arsenal fans. Another bad day at the office for the Gunners and the man with all the answers, Arsene Wenger, does not seem to have any. The Frenchman was clearly frustrated by a number of things in the scraped point against Hull City, but it was just [...]
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger felt his side only had themselves to blame after having to battle back to secure a 2-2 draw against Hull with a stoppage-time equalizer from Danny Welbeck at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners, with a makeshift defense and missing Mesut Ozil because of a knee injury, had taken an early lead through a fine finish from Alexis Sanchez and looked on their way to victory.
It is now about six weeks since Danny Welbeck has been an Arsenal player and the heavy fixture list, including two international breaks with England since he signed from Man United have meant that there has not been too much opportunity for Arsene Wenger to work with him too much on the training ground.
We have heard complaints for years that Arsenal have had an unfair advantage when it comes to the Champions League draw at the start of each season. But that is no longer going to be the case as UEFA have changed the seeding system and from next year the top pot will consist of the [...]
It looks like the Arsenal and England international star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be heading on a collision course with his club manager Arsene Wenger over the subject of the under 21 Euro championships next summer. And it is not the first time that the inclusion of the young Arsenal players for the England under 21 [.
Can the world stop picking on Arsenal for a while. Not for long, I am not greedy, but it would be nice if we didn't have to without almost a complete first team of players through injury for the rest of the season. And it would be nice if Arsene Wenger could complete his transfer [...]
With most of the attention focused on Theo Walcott's anticipated return from lengthy injury, Serge Gnabry's own comeback from injury has managed to fly under the radar. The 19-year-old German youth international has not featured for Arsenal since last season's 1-1 draw away to Bayern Munich in the Champions League on March 12.
At the Arsenal AGM yesterday, there were questions from the Arsenal Supporters Trust and some of them, inevitably, focused on what is seen as a serious lack of investment in the playing squad in recent years. The recent revelations about the ever increasing cost of supporting the Gunners has only made apparent stinginess even more [.
Arsene Wenger promises to address defensive problems in January - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted to strengthen his defense in the upcoming January transfer window. The French manager has also accepted that he should have plugged the defensive problems in the summer.
The Annual General Meeting of Arsenal Football Club was today and as usual there were lots of questions raised about the club's financial dealings, especially the spending on transfers by Arsene Wenger. Even though the Frenchman spent more than ever in the summer transfer window, a year after smashing the club's transfer record to sign [.
Will Wenger be happy with Chambers' displays for Arsenal so far? by SE Calum Chambers' £16m summer move from Southampton to Arsenal was in many ways an unexpected one, as the teenager had made his Southampton senior debut only last year under Mauricio Pochettino, and since went onto rack up 22 Premier League appearances.
Well, so much for this being the start of a run of games that might see the team find some form and rhythm. Although we began well, we soon self-destructed in typical Arsenal style and in the end we were lucky to salvage a point with a late Danny Welbeck goal.
With the two week break for the international fixtures come and gone, the whole Mourinho/Wenger spat seems to be a distant memory. Speaking this week, Arsene Wenger has express his regret at what happened.
We all have our opinion of Wenger and the Chelsea fans will know the amount of stick he gets when he comes to the Bridge.
A famous man once said, "If you defend like a garrulous, gin-soaked wombat, you'll never win the Premier League."
Actually, I don't know if a famous man said that at all, but somebody should have because it's true. We are a gimlet-eyed marsupial at the moment, conceding more goals, looking susceptible to the counter attack, and I think we've got to be thankful that Hull didn't have the players who could genuinely hurt us when things broke down at the attacking end of the pitch.
