It is coming up to that time when Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal fans hold our collective breaths, cross our fingers and hope that none of the Gunners come back from the international break with an injury. But in one way this upcoming two week break in club football has come at a good time [...]
Okay Arsenal fans this it, the latest chance for the Gunners to take advantage of the struggles of our old enemy and get one over Manchester United. There is the small matter of a trip to Wembley for the FA cup semi-final as a prize as well. Louis van Gaal has made just one change [...]
The Arsenal team that won the Premier League season in 2004 without a single defeat have quite rightly got a big and possibly never to be rivalled position in the history books. The recent release of the video celebrating their amazing achievement has brought them back into the limelight recently and I hope that every [.
Olivier Giroud had a mare when Arsenal played Monaco, but he redeemed himself a little by opening the scoring against Everton on Saturday. The young Oxlade-Chamberlain also acquitted himself well in the game, and the England international had nothing but praise for Giroud after the match. The Ox told Arsenal.
While Arsene Wenger today confirmed the news that every Arsenal fans was hoping for, the manager's latest injury update, reported by the official Arsenal website, was not all good news for the Gunners. So it seems that, as usual, Arsenal will still be missing a few key players for a while at least. The news [.
With Arsenal losing away to Spurs and Chelsea winning away to Aston Villa, the last sputtering flames of our title hopes were extinguished this weekend. It is still going to be a fight to the finish in the Premier League but our only hope of another trophy this season is in the FA cup and [...]
The Arsenal and England international star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was one of the many Gunners hit by the injury curse last season. It was especially galling for the dynamic young player because he had already bagged an assist and was looking very good when he picked up the long term knee injury in the opening game.
When Arsene Wenger revealed the latest Arsenal injury news, the doubts over the fitness of the two England international stars Danny Welbeck and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may have been bad news for them and the manager, but one Gunner who may have been less upset is Theo Walcott. With two of our regular forwards out of [.
Arsene Wenger has given the latest round-up of the Arsenal injury situation in his pre-match press conference ahead of the FA cup fourth round match away to Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday. We should be used to this by now I suppose, but it would be nice just for once to not lose another [...]
It was a real shame for Arsenal and for our Wales international Aaron Ramsey, when the central midfielder picked up his latest injury during the Gunners' thumping of Turkish club Galatasaray in the final Champions League group game. Because despite Ramsey having struggled to recapture the brilliant form that he had shown in the previous [.
With the Arsenal away game against an in form and high flying Southampton being the third game for the Gunners in a week, Arsene Wenger will obviously have some concerns over the fitness of some of his Arsenal players. But it is a vital game as well so the manager has a bit of a [...]
I suppose that it did not matter in the end, as Arsenal were able to soak up the pressure from West Ham and record a vital away win that keeps the little run of results going and moves the Gunners above the Hammers in the Premier League table. However, it was not exactly smooth sailing [...]
It is a huge relief to Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal fans that the France international Laurent Koscielny has passed a late fitness test and is able to start for the Gunners away to West Ham today. With the home side in good form and with Sakho and Carroll in the goals, it could not [...]
It did not take a lot of thought to work out what the Arsenal starting line-up for the Premier League away clash with Liverpool would be. As soon as we heard that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had passed a late fitness test yesterday, Arsene Wenger's Arsenal team almost picked itself. Because of all the injury problems which [.
Arsene Wenger was handed a massive boost as he prepared to head north with his Arsenal squad to face Liverpool at Anfield. Not only do the Gunners need to banish the painful memories of last season, we badly need the three points in order to close to within just a game of our top four [...]
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has already had a pretty good season for Arsenal, on a personal level at least. The 21-year old has already played more Premier League games than last season and has missed just one of the Champions League games, also scoring in both competitions. He may have had to move around the pitch, playing [.
There have been many debates about the various problems Arsenal have had already this season and no doubt there will be many more. The Arsene Out Brigade and the Arsene Knows Best faction may never see eye to eye but when the team are struggling on the pitch, the debates are always more strenuous and [.
There have been a few horror stories in the press lately saying that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was the latest Arsenal player to join our ever-growing injury list and could be out for the next month at least, but according to an injury update from Dominic Fifield in the Guardian the Gunners medical team are "quietly confident" [.
Everyone connected with Arsenal should be crossing their fingers, toes and anything else that is cross-able this week and hoping that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain reacts well to the injection he has had to try to ease the groin problem that the Gunner picked up near the end of Saturday's excellent win over Newcastle United.
As usual the Arsenal squad is massively depleted due to injury problems and the suspension of Calum Chambers could hardly have come at a worse time for Arsene Wenger and the club, especially with today's visitors to the Emirates stadium coming fresh off the back of a famous victory over Chelsea. But Newcastle United have [.
No Arsenal player has played in as many games for the Gunners this season as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, although 10 of his 24 appearances for us have been as a substitute. That is probably more than the dynamic young England international expe3cted though, because with a fully fit squad, Arsene Wenger would often leave the Ox [.
If Arsenal can win away to Stoke City today it will make it four wins in a row in all competitions and would surely put the momoies of a poor start to the season firmly behind us and leave us looking forward to the rest of the season with some optimism. But with just one [...]
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger got some good news on the injury front ahead of this crucial Premier League clash with third placed Southampton, as the injuriy doubts on Kieran Gibbs, Nacho Monreal and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain proved to be false. So the former Southampton star Chamberlain joined another former Saint Calum Chambers in the Gunners starting [.
Arsenal 1 – 2 Manchester United Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 5 Didn't really have many saves to make at all and had to go off early after United's first goal because he was injured by Gibbs. Typical Arsenal with the way we conceded that. Szczesny could've been stronger with his punch. Chambers – [.
We already know that Theo Walcott will not be on the pitch or on the bench for Arsenal tomorrow as the Gunners play host to the old rivals Manchester United. Hopefully though, Arsene Wenger will be able to start with Danny Welbeck up front but the 23-year old may be ruled out with a hamstring [...]
There was a pretty damning statistic about Arsenal in the media this week, showing that without the direct contribution of our new summer signing Alexis Sanchez with his eight goals and two goal assists in the Premier League, as reported by the Daily Mail, then the Gunners would be down in 17th place.
Arsenal 3 – 3 Anderlecht Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 6 He couldn't do much for any of the goals and did make some decent saves in the first half. Chambers – 6 Was decent offensively but was caught out defensively and was at fault for the first goal (even if it was offside). [...]
The Arsenal manager spoke to the press today ahead of the trip north to face Sunderland in the Premier League tomorrow, as reported by The Mirror. And I don't think that Arsene Wenger needed to stretch his tactical acumen too far to realise that the home side may well concentrate on their defending after being [.
Chamberlain shouldn't be judged on his performance against Hull City by SE Ozil was out injured, and will be out for a long time. Walcott isn't fit enough to return to first team action just yet. Subsequently, there was no doubt that Alex Oxlade Chamberlain would find himself in Arsenal's starting XI against Hull City, [.
Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been impressing for club and country this season, especially since this injury crisis hit the Gunners, but his Arsenal and England team-mate Jack Wilshere has made it clear that once Theo Walcott is back to full fitness, the Ox will have to be relegated to the bench.
I know that they are not exactly the same sort of player, but the Arsenal pair of Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain do have quite a bit in common and Arsene Wenger has played them both on the left and right flanks, even though the young Englishman is a midfielder while the Chile international is [.
It is vital that Arsene Wenger gets Arsenal off to a winning start when club football gets back underway after this current round of international friendly games and Euro qualifiers are finished. And the Gunners have a great chance to get our season up and running properly because the Premier League game on Saturday is [.
Ozil's absence could bring the best out of the Gunners by SE Mesut Ozil's less-than-acceptable performances in Arsenal colours this season haven't helped the North Londoners' cause one bit. Barring his brilliant display against Aston Villa – in which he scored and assisted a goal, and looked like the player we've come to know – [.
After the shocking way Arsenal were hammered at Stamford Bridge last season, today's Premier League clash with Chelsea is a good chancw to if Arsene Wrenger and the Gunners have learned their lessons and whether we will have any more joy against the big clubs this season. But the Frenchman's starting selection is hampered by [.
You might think that his starting for Arsenal in the Capital One Cup clash with Southampton would mean that our new star Alexis Sanchez might be a doubt for the north London derby with Tottenham on Saturday. But Arsene Wenger is going to have a hard job leaving the Chile international on the bench and [.
What is the one ‘not-so-impressive' attribute of Wenger, as a manager? by SE An Overview Arsene Wenger wouldn't have endured this much of longevity as Arsenal manager had he not been consistent and, magnificent, in his own way. He has instilled an eccentric brand of football, both at Highbury and the Emirates, and is one [.
Arsenal vs Besiktas: Wenger's team selection deserves plaudits by SE An Overview It was one tantalizing tie to overcome for Arsenal, who were hoping to make it to the Group stages of the UEFA Champions League for the 17th year running. The Gunners, more ominously, had lost the core of their squad for last night's [.
This is the biggest game of the season so far for Arsenal, with the winner taking a place at the top table of European club football and the loser getting their midweeks off for the next few months. A 0-0 draw with Besiktas in Turkey leaves the Gunners slight favourites with tonight's match at the [.
It is all about getting into the Champions League for Arsenal now, although hopefully there will be some serious work being done on the transfer front behind the scenes as well. But for the players and fans, it is absolutely vital for the Gunners to beat Besiktas on Wednesday and book our regular place among [.
This is a big game for Arsenal, with last season's away game at Everton being one of those that Arsene Wenger, his players and the fans would like to put behind them as quickly as possible. But with an even more important game against Besiktas in the Champions League on Wednesday, it comes at an [...
