Arsenal fans have been known to accuse Arsene Wenger of having his favourite players that he will keep playing whether they are in good form or not and one of the players this has been said about most in recent years is the Wales international midfielder Aaron Ramsey. As we know, Rambo proved his many [.
The Arsenal and England star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been pretty unlucky on the injury front in the early years of his footballing career, just like many of his Arsenal team mates like Wilshere, Ramsey and all. Even considering that, however, he might have featured more for Arsenal. Arsene Wenger has often been quite cautious in [.
The Arsenal and England international star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could well be set to feature in his third game in the space of a week tomorrow evening, when Olympiacos come to town for the second round of Champions League group games. He had mixed fortunes in his previous two appearances, scoring an unlucky own goal in [.
If Arsenal had won, or even not lost, the opening Champions League game away to Dinamo Zagreb, things may have been different. Maybe not, because Arsene Wenger has been speaking today about how vital it is to win your home games in these European league based tournaments. Having lost in Croatia, though, the game at [.
While the circumstances that had put Arsenal and Arsene Wenger under serious pressure meant that the manager felt he could not select his usual team full of young Gunners for our first Capital One Cup game of the season, Wenger still made many changes to the Arsenal starting line up. After the game our versatile [.
Arsene Wenger has made wholesale changes, six in total, to the Arsenal starting line up for the opening game in the Champions League group stage. Going on form and reputation, tonight´s opponents Dinamo Zagreb are the weakest team in the group and with a massive Premier League clash with Chelsea coming up early on Saturday, [.
I will be frustrated but not at all surprised on Saturday afternoon, when Arsene Wenger announces his Arsenal starting line up for the Premier League home game against Stoke City and the names of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott are missing once again. Hopefully the boss will prove me wrong and select at least one [.
Just like with his lack of appearances in the starting line up for Arsenal since he finally recovered from a long and frustrating spell on the side lines with injury, Theo Walcott must be scrathing his head right now and wondering what he needs to do to force his way into the England team. Despite [.
A lot of Arsenal fans have been critical of Arsene Wenger for the way the Frenchman always sticks up for his players and refuses to criticise them even when it is blatantly obvious to everyone that they have just had a shocker and cost the team badly. That is Wenger's way though and the players [...]
It is pretty hard for an Arsenal fan to find any little scraps of positivity from the news that Danny Welbeck was not recovering properly from his injury and has had to have surgery to fix his knee problem, but as the international break is underway, there may be some good news for us from [...]
I could have given a few Arsenal players the Man of the Match award for yesterday´s hard fought win at Newcastle, with Cazorla´s probing and patient passing as well as Oxlade-Chamberlain´s direct approach and shot for the goal being key factors, but for me the anchoring presence of Coquelin in midfield and his ability to [.
Did someone recently suggest that Arsenal had waved goodbye to the injury problems that had been causing Arsene Wenger so many problems in the last few years? Well Mesut Ozil is the latest Gunner to have to miss a game this season, due to a knee problem, and it is starting to look like nothing [...]
That is now the first two home Premier League games that Arsenal have failed to score a goal, although the world and his wife knows that the referee robbed Aaron Ramsey with the awful offside decision against Liverpool. Still, for the whole of the first game and a large portion of the second we did [.
Aaron Ramsey may have been one of the Arsenal players, and there were quite a few of them, that had a nightmare in that first Premier League game against West Ham, when he did a bit of a headless chicken act. At least that showed the Wales international was trying his best to make things [...]
I guess the Arsenal manager really does believe all his talk about the cohesion and stability of a team being all important, because Arsene Wenger has, stubbornly some might say, stuck largely with the same starting line up that was so poor as we lost to West Ham last Sunday. The Frenchman has made a [.
I am not saying that the Arsenal and Chile international star Alexis Sanchez is nailed on to have a second season with his new club that is as good or even better than his debut campaign in the Premier League, but I do think that it is very doubtful that his standards will slip that [...]
I think it is safe to say that we have not really seen the best of the Arsenal and England star yet, at leasxt not on a consistent basis. But the flashes of brilliance that we have seen from young Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have been enough to suggest that he has a brilliant career ahead of [...]
Well it might not have been pretty or anything like the most fluent and creative Arsenal performance of recent years, but did we really expect anyhting other than a battle against the Chelsea side managed by Jose Mourinho? The main thing is that Arsenal won the game and ended Arsene Wenger;s long run of games [.
Depending on how quickly the Arsenal and Chile star Alexis Sanchez gets back to match fitness and into the swing of the new season, the Gunners will have to manage between one and four games without our best player of last season. And with all the talk of how much our slow start cost us [...]
This up and coming season will be, amazingly enough, the fifth as an Arsenal player for our young England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. And we are all hoping that the exciting and dynamic star can finally show us what he is all about over the course of the campaign and not just in flashes. In a [.
This is the sort of Arsenal transfer rumour that used to send a chill down the spine of the average Gooner. But that was back in the lean years when the club was asking Arsene Wenger to somehow keep the team close to the top of the Premier League table and therefore in the lucrative [...]
In the years when Arsenal were not winning anything except our annual place in the Champions League group stage, Arsenal fans were understandably a bit miffed when Arsene Wenger spoke about the balance of the squad and about building for the future. But it now seems as though the Frenchman´s plans for the foundation of [.
If his fears do prove correct, you would have to feel sorry for the Arsenal and England international star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. At 21-years old it would hardly represent his last chance to appear in a Wembley final but that might not be much of a consolation if his injury problems and lack of fitness lead [.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may not be fit enough to face Man United on Sunday, but he was there in the starting XI when Arsenal had their hoodoo-breaking win in the FA Cup quarter-final two months ago. The youngster only managed 50 minutes before sustaining a hamstring injury and being replaced by Aaron Ramsey.
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 [.
