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 [...]
This should be music to the ears of Arsenal fans everywhere, because ever since the Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich started pumping money into Chelsea, the Blues have regularly been able to beat the Gunners to any transfer targets that both clubs want, as well as being able to poach the likes of Ashley Cole with [.
Next up for Arsenal is the trip north to face Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. And you could be forgiven for thinking that this is the perfect time to face Gus Poyet and his team, as they are still reeling from their worst ever defeat in the Premier League, an 8-0 battering at the [...]
Having come under intense criticism over his ineptitude or unwillingness to bring the needed top players to Arsenal, in addition to his continued disinterest towards tactical flexibility, Arsene Wenger must be a hugely worried man. However, it would be lunacy to question Wenger's integrity, as the Frenchman will always be a part of the Arsenal [.
Win over Anderlecht could be the springboard to Arsenal rediscovering their form by SE Arsenal indeed have made an unimpressive start to their campaign; however, with a couple of good performances, form and the season that's increasingly going on a downward spiral can be rectified. Last weekend's 2-2 draw at the Emirates against Hull City [.
Many years ago in a land far away our valiant boys took the field for the first leg of the 1970 Inter-City Fairs Cup Final which today is the equivalent of the Europa Cup. We had been poor for a number of years and recently lost the League Cup to Swindon, yes Swindon, so the prospect of playing the Belgian Champions was worrying.
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 [...]
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.
