If anyone involved with Arsenal Football Club was unsure of the wisdom of offering a new contract to a 33-year old midfielder, the performance of Tomas Rosicky against Sunderland on Saturday should have convinced them. Arsene Wenger and the Gunners hierarchy certainly have no doubts, because the new deal for Rosicky is set to be [.
Arsenal are under no illusions about the sixe of the task ahead of them if they are to progress to the next round of the Champions League. Going to the home of the strongest team in Europe, if not the world, needing to score two goals and not concede just to earn an extra 30 [...]
Sanogo has earned a start and Ozil needs a rest By Uche Hello Gunners. For the first time this season, Arsenal had a really good opportunity to measure our dearly beloved team against the best in the world and they did not disappoint. Many predicted an Arsenal demolition but eleven against eleven, we went toe [.
There have been no direct quotes from Arsene Wenger or any of the Arsenal players, yet all the football journalists have been reporting for the last few days that the manager is set to field a weakened Arsenal team today. Apparently Wenger wants to rest a few key players who have been looking a bit [.
The revolving door in the Arsenal dressing room continues to spin round as it has done all season. Just when you think that the Gunners team is going to be boosted with the return of a player, they get injured again or someone else drops out. True to form, Arsene Wenger has been hit with [...]
Arsenal 0 – 0 Manchester United Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 8 Did very well today with some quality saves and some very good distribution. Kept us in the game when RVP's header was tipped onto the bar. Sagna – 8 He was defensively very good today and kept Mata very quiet. Also created [...]
Does Ozil deserve to keep his place in the Arsenal side? by Ash In Arsenal's previous game against Liverpool, I'm pretty sure that what Mesut Ozil is most remembered for is tripping over the ball rather than any actual football ability and although it has been necessarily wiped, it's not the only poor show from [.
I am one of the Arsenal fans that have been defending Mesut Ozil recently. The German's influence on games may have dropped off since his brilliant start, but I still thought that his vision and passing ability was helping the players around him. Yesterday at Anfield, however, Ozil was nothing short of a liability.
Arsenal 2 – 0 Crystal Palace Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 8 He had quite a bit to do in terms of saving shots as Palace managed to always muster an attack when they had the ball. One was notably better than the rest as he saved the header by Cameron Jerome. Sagna – [...]
Arsenal had a little bit of an injury crisis going into this home game against Tony Pulis' Crystal Palace. With Ramsey, Wilshere and Flamini unavailable, Arsene Wenger gave Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain the chance to show what he can do in the position that the bos thinks will end up being where he plays as his career [.
Southampton 2 v 2 Arsenal: Match Report Infographic by allArsenal.com Arsenal missed their chance to go four points clear at the top of the table tonight, after their 2-2 draw with the Saints. With Southampton probably feeling like it's two points dropped, Arsenal played the final fifteen minutes with only ten men.
Arsenal went into this away game at Southampton knowing that they had a great chance to put some serious pressure on Man City and Chelsea, both of whom play tomorrow. But they also knew that the Saints were a good side and it was not going to be easy. So I could not believe how [...]
Seriously now, stop it! Leave Arsenal alone and go and pick on someone else for a change. The Gunners have been hit by yet another injury, this time to our young England international Jack Wilshere. It is nothing like the cruciate ligament damage that will keep Theo Walcott out of action for the rest of [.
Arsenal 4 – 0 Coventry City Player Ratings by KJ Fabianski – 7 Was very shaky when it came to claiming the ball and controlling it with his feet but made two crucial saves that could've made this game a lot more difficult had they gone in. Jenkinson – 6.5 He ran around a lot [...]

Podolski- A key man who can't be sold! by Rory Lukas Podolski came to Arsenal a year and a half ago, along with Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud. It was often emphasised how well the duo of Cazorla and Podolski were playing together last season. They even spoke of each other highly off the pitch [...
It is fair to say that Santi Cazorla has not had nearly the same influence for Arsenal this season as he did last time around. Early injuries meant it took the Spaniard a long time to really get going this season, along with the fact that Mesut Ozil came in and nailed down the central [...]
Gnabry happy to be in the team! by Ash Normally Arsenal tries to promote at least one player a year from first team reserves to the starting eleven with the likes of Jack Wilshere, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Carl Jenkinson having that experience in the past, and although the latter may not be fully integrated into [.
How Arsenal midfield trio can win us the title by KJ It's no secret that Arsenal's main threat when attacking is the midfield. We have a plethora of talented midfielders all with different strengths. You have the more experienced midfielders in Rosicky, Arteta, Flamini and Cazorla. Then you have our ready-made superstar who will only [.
Is Santi Arsenal's main man in midfield? by Ash With Arsenal having so many talented midfield players it's difficult to see them as individual talents rather than a collective item. They all hold the same qualities that make them almost the perfect midfielder and together it makes the team almost unstoppable in the middle of [.
Cazorla Back to His Best For Arsenal by AT Following yet another victory, this time against Fulham, Arsenal continue to soar high at the summit of the Barclays Premier League.

Arsenal 2 – 0 Fulham Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 8 He was very good today when called upon. He was very quick off his line to deny Dejagah twice. He made a few good saves as well and was commanding from set pieces. Sagna – 8 I don't remember the last time I [...]
Arsenal went into this home game against Fulham knowing that nothing less than a win would do to keep them flying high on top of the Premier League. And with Fulham having let in 20 goals in their last six league games and the Gunners defence in great form, nobody really expected anything else. Arsenal [.
Arsenal vs Fulham Preview, Line up and Predicted score by KJ With Fulham in terrible form and being the victims of a 6-0 thrashing to Hull City of all teams, it would seem that the result of this game is all but a formality and the real question is, how many? As long as the [...]

Gunners playmaker Santi Cazorla has today claimed that he does not mind suppressing his natural attacking instincts to put in a solid defensive shift for the team, underlining the attitude [.
When will Poldi play? by Blaz Lukas Podolski is probably the most accurate striker that Arsenal have in the team. And the owner of one of most lethal left legs in Premier league, so the question arises, why isn't he playing more? Why isn't this left leg of his put to it's deadly use? Wenger [...]
It was great for Arsenal fans to see Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain return to first team action at the end of the win at Aston Villa last night. And there was an element of synchronicity to it as well, because it was against Villa on the opening day when the young England international picked up his injury.
Aston Villa 1 – 2 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 7.5 He didn't have much to do during the first half but had to do quite a bit in the second half as we conceded and needed to defend our lead. He had to make a few decent claims/saves and was calm about [...]
Arsenal are able to welcome a coiple of key players back with Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud. And the unlucky Theo Walcott's place will be taken by the impressive young up and coming German star Serge Gnabry. Santi Cazorla gets the nod ahead of Lukas Podolski on the left, but the German forward could be [.
There has been speculation all season about whether or not Tomas Rosicky would be given a new Arsenal contract when his current deal expires in the summer. Arsene Wenger has now put an end to the questions by assuring the fans that Rosicky will definitely still be a Gunner next season. As Sky Sports reports, [.
We should play the Spain way till the end of the season There seems to be increasing demand from the side of the Arsenal fans that Arsene Wenger should sign a recognizable striker if Arsenal is going to push, at least credibly for the BPL and possibly for other cups. These demands have increased to [.
Arsenal versus Spurs Player Ratings By Twig It was a mesmerizing performance from Arsenal. I believe we gave our most devastating attacking display this season.

The Arsenal players were balways going to be fired up for an FA cup clash against north London rivals Tottenham.

Will Saturday be point of No Return for Podolski?

For Gunners, one of the things we're sure looking forward to is if Podolski will start or [..
There was me worrying silly old worrying me! In the end it was far from the toughest of derby days for Arsenal, but in terms of enjoyment it was right up there with the best of them. Hoarse? I've practically got hooves this morning.
We bossed it, fair and square, and even with ten men, when we understandably found ourselves on the back foot, we looked comfortable defending what we had.
