This is it Arsenal fans. This game could very well be the one that decides whether the Gunners look back on this season as a success and possibly the start of great things to come, or one more on the pile labelled disappointing. The simple fact is that Arsenal must beat Everton in the FA [...]
Arsenal vs Everton FA Cup Preview, Line up and Predicted score by KJ Every time Arsenal play a big match, it immediately becomes the biggest game of the season. That's natural considering the closer we get to the end of the season, the more these games decide whether it will ultimately be successful or whether [.
Arsene Wenger has a few selection issues for his Arsenal team facing what could be one of the most important games of the season. Surely the biggest headache the Frenchman has is what to do now Jack Wilshere became the latest Gunner to be sidelined through injury. I may be wrong, but I am assuming [.
Why Wilshere's injury isn't a major blow to Arsenal by Ash Although the title may seem a bit strange, a little bit of analytical thinking will suggest just why Jack Wilshere's latest injury may prove to be not as bad for Arsenal as everyone seems to think. Wilshere at his best is an awesome sight, [.
Why does it seem that whenever a large number of Arsenal players head off to international duty, it always Jack Wilshere who is one of the biggest worries. Maybe it is because I am an England fan as well, but I am always biting my nails when he goes into a tackle or is clipped [...]
When Arsene Wenger picked his Arsenal starting XI to face the rough tactics of Stoke City in the cauldron of the Britannia stadium on Saturday, the Frenchman made just one change and that was to bring Kieran Gibbs in for Nacho Monreal. The Spaniard may have been replaced anyway, but it meant that Wenger stuck [.
Arsenal vs Sunderland preview, line up and predicted score by KJ It was an extremely tiring game for Arsenal midweek against Bayern and this could arguably be one of our worst performances at home this season because of the work we had to put in on Wednesday to keep the score reasonable. That said, we [.
Positives from the Bayern game by Big Gun Hi Gooners. I stayed up till midnight watching the Arsenal game as it was televised late in my country. Even though after the red card I knew it would be impossible to win, I stayed up and suffered with the team, hoping that by some miracle we [...]
Oxlade Chamberlain is the star of the show! by Ash Arsenal normally has at least one young Gun to light up the league with their performances over the course of the season and this year it is no different. Originally we thought it was Aaron Ramsey, almost a reborn player coming back from a long [...]
Arsenal 2 – 1 Liverpool Player Ratings by KJ Fabianski – 8.5 Brilliant game by him today. He was very commanding and made plenty of saves including some absolute brilliant ones. Only reason he doesn't get a higher rating is because he made a massive mistake late on when trying to claim a set piece [.
When I saw the Arsenal team sheet today, I thought that it would either make Arsene Wenger look like a master tactician or make the Arsenal fans furious for giving up on the FA cup. Sanogo given his debut, Monreal and Jenkinson starting and Fabianski in goal against the same team that battered us just [.
Well here we go Arsenal fans. Tonight's game at the Emirates against Manchester United is a must win one for both teams after the weekend's disappointments. Arsene Wenger is backing his players who have done so well already this season, but the Frenchman has made a couple of changes to the side that collapsed so [.
The case for Chamberlain to become a striker by Twig Which was Arsenal's most irresistible attacking display last season? That is probably subject to varying opinions, but I'm sure most of us would have the 7-3 drubbing of Newcastle as top of the pile. How about our best attacking display this season?
Arsene Wenger has got a massive few days ahead of him. The Arsenal boss is well aware that another poor performance against Manchester United on Wednesday could all but end his hopes of regaining the Premier League title. He has already suggested that he was just as much to blame for the awful show at [.
Liverpool 5 – 1 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 6 Even after conceding 6 goals, I can't really fault him for his performance. He couldn't do anything for their goals really. Could've been better for their first but that's it. Sagna – 3 Terrible performance by him. Completely torn apart by Sterling.
Arsenal knew they were in for a tough game with a visit to Anfield, but with Liverpool's injury problems leaving them with a makeshift back four, confidence was fairly high that the Gunners could control the game, punish their defence and get the vital win. Until we started to play that is, because it was [.
With Arsenal beginning a tough run of fixtures with a tricky looking trip to Anfield to face an in-form Liverpool, Arsene Wenger will have been glad that his Gunners team are not the only one to be depleted by injuries. And his preparation for the game will have been helped by being easily able to [.
Liverpool vs Arsenal Preview, Line up and predicted score by KJ This is the start of the business end of the season for Arsenal in my opinion. We need to pick up maximum points this month to ensure we have a fighting chance going into the gruelling March fixture list. Liverpool at Anfield has been [.
Any little crumb of good luck that Arsenal get this season is extremely welcome, because it will be more than balanced out by the mountain of bad luck that Arsene Wenger and the players have had to deal with. But, whereas injuries have caused us nothing but trouble this season, tomorrow's game might actually be [.
The next run of fixtures is a bit like that first day back at school after the summer. We knew it was coming, it was somewhere there in the back of our minds while we enjoyed a few blissful weeks on top of the world and yet, it was just ever-so-tempting to ignore the reality until the last day.
Well today is that day and tomorrow the real work begins for this Arsenal team.
There is a lot of speculation and discussion at the minute about who is the favourite to win the Premier League title. Arsenal are still being largely ignored by the media, despite still being in top spot and having been there for the vast majority of the season so far. Chelsea's victory over Man City [.
What with injuries and the suspension of Mathieu Flamini, the Arsenal team almost picks itself at the minute. But that does not mean that Arsene Wenger will be taking a week off to catch up with the box sets of The Wire or Breaking Bad, because he still has at least one big decision to [...]
Arsenal expects more from the Ox and so does he! by Ash If you weren't aware already, having been in a sensory deprivation chamber or lost in the desert, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain played a stunning role in the central of midfield for Arsenal in their 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon. The Gunners [.
Arsene Wenger takes his Arsenal team to Anfield to face Liverpool in Saturday's early kick-off. It is the first in a run of four games that could have a massive say on whether the Gunners have a successful season or another disappointing one. So it is really important to get off to a decent start [..
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 [.
Although this may not be a big game in the normal sense of the word, it is, for me, in that Arsenal have to get back to winning ways to keep the pressure on Man City and Chelsea. Also, the in jury situation and the transfer window has put a bit of negative spin non [...]
The Arsenal treatment room has been like Picadilly circus this season. It also needs to have a revolving door fitted because no sooner does Arsene Wenger get a player back from injury then he is replaced by someone else or is back in there himself in no time. What has really exacerbated the injury problems [.
There is no doubt that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would love to be in the Arsenal starting XI on Tuesday night. Not only is he desperate to get back into regular action after missing almost all of the season so far, the opponents are Southampton, where he spent 11 years and broke onto the English football scene [.
Arsenal vs Coventry City Preview, Line up and Predicted score line by KJ Arsenal got one of the most interesting but difficult ties in the third round after drawing Tottenham at home. And although we won the game comfortably, it will be looked back on as the moment we lost the vital Theo Walcott for [.
Arsenal's underdog status to work in our favour? by Ash Arsenal have led the Premier League title race for the majority of the season so far, with the Gunners only being knocked off top spot on a few occasions. Having gone into the New Year in top spot there is a lot of confidence that [...]
How do we integrate Chamberlain into the squad in the coming games? by KJ It's such a relief for Arsenal to have Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain back from injury, especially at a time where we've lost a very crucial player in Theo Walcott. With such a long lay-off, Chamberlain will need to be gradually introduced back into [.
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 vs Arsenal match preview by Ash There may not be any action for Arsenal fans over the weekend, however Monday night football is not far away and this time Arsenal travel to Villa Park to face an Aston Villa side that cannot get on a consistent run of form. The Gunners endured a [...]
Wenger on Chambo by JMT With the departure of Theo Walcott recently to a lengthy injury, Arsenal's chances of capturing the Premier League for the first time in nine years have been hampered slightly. However it is exciting to see that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has come through his own personal battle with injury and is looking [.
It seems like Arsenal have got Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain back at just the right time. Losing Theo Walcott in such a disappointing way and for so long, just when the English forward was hitting really good form, could have had a knock-on effect for the whole Arsenal squad. Getting the Ox back at the same time, [.
There is some good news for Arsenal fans on the club's injury situation, which makes a pleasant change. Although I have seen a few reports and claims from some medical experts that suggest Theo Walcott might not be out for quite as long as expected, that would only really help him for the World Cup. [.
Chambo's Chance at World Cup Glory! by Ash As a European super club, Arsenal has no surprises when many of their players achieve call ups to their respective national team sides both within and outside of the footballing campaign. Usually international football in the middle of the club campaign does nothing but anger fans alike, [.
Okay, I have put the razor blade down and started to think about how Arsenal will cope without the unlucky Theo Walcott. Looking for positives, it is worth noting that Arsenal have got themselves to the top of the league, in the most part, without Theo, who has already missed a large chunk of the [..
Will Saturday be point of No Return for Podolski? By Twig Today marks a great opportunity for Arsenal to widen the gap on some of its rivals, especially with Chelsea having to visit United in a slippery tie. For Gunners, one of the things we're sure looking forward to is if Podolski will start or [..
