Arsenal are about to lose their place at the top of the table, but don't worry Gooners, I am not talking about the premier League or Champions League group tables. It is the unwanted position as the club with the most crocked players on the sidelines that Arsenal are losing. Poor old Abou Diaby will [.
Gnabry and Ox by AT Over the past week or so, there has been plenty of news emerging on the injury front for Arsenal. While there is positive news in regards to Theo Walcott, Lukas Podolski, Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey, there is certainly some bad news as well because Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain seems to have [.
The Arsenal youngster Serge Gnabry has most definitely caught the attention of many with his performances for the club so far this season. With the Gunners struggling with squad depth so early on in the campaign, the teenager has certainly stepped up to the plate and made his mark on the first-team. In fact, his [.
When Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain signed for Arsenal from Southampton back in 2011, the talented young player would have been excited to join the likes of Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey in an exciting young team, but it dseems like he is now joining them in another group, the unwanted one of the young Gunners whose careers [.
While a great deal of media hype features around Arsenal's new found star Mesut Ozil and the return of Santi Cazorla, many seem to be forgetting that there are some players in this team that have been around the squad for many years now and in fact they play as much of an important role [...]
Chamberlain could have a massive impact for us. by KJ Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Arsenal from Southampton in the summer of 2011 with loads of people questioning Arsene Wenger as to why he'd spend so much money on a 17 year old. But he was vindicated with some breath taking performances against the likes of Manchester [.
While Arsenal are usually well represented in various international teams, it was odd to see England start the first of two crucial World Cup qualifiers with not one Gunner on the pitch against Montenegro. Jack Wilshere and Kieran Gibbs were on the bench, while Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were unavailable due to injury.
The young Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere probably wishes that the English media and the world of Twitter would find something else to talk about at the minuted, because for the last week or so he has been embroiled in controversy, partly due to his own actions and partly due to misunderstanding and over-reaction.
Theo's return crucial despite Arsenal's current form by MW Theo Walcott has been injured for quite some time and Arsene Wenger has not come out and said when he will be back for Arsenal. I don't know about other Arsenal fans, but the absence of Walcott is quite evident when I watch us play. Personally, [.
Arsene Wenger has told Arsenal youngster to take advantage of the "fantastic opportunity" to establish himself as a first-team regular. Injuries to Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain have presented the 18-year-old with the chance to get some game-time under his belt. The German youngster featured in last weekend's victory against Stoke, and Wenger wants [.
Why Wenger likes a left wing Nacho by KJ It's well known that Arsenal have a plethora of injuries at the moment, especially to the left wing position with Cazorla, Podolski and Oxlade-Chamberlain. As a result, we've been forced to play Wilshere as a LW. What's interesting is that rather than opting for someone like [.
Wenger waiting on Walcott by Ash Arsenal's Theo Walcott is a player that frustrates many, yet is also supported by so many. I choose to have the approach that although I am often critical of the England international, I also choose to support him whenever he is wearing the Arsenal shirt! There is no doubt [.
You just have to love social media. Footballers all over the world have taken to Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook over the past couple of years to give fans a bit of a sneak peak behind the scenes of their footballing and personal lives.
While some tweets or posts have gotten some players in trouble, other players use social networks for a laugh.
Mesut Özil with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. #aha pic.twitter.com/5uH1kPaFVp Sir Jenkinson (@theEpicGooner) September 11, 2013 Arsenal's record signing Mesut Ozil has arrived at the club's training ground for the first time. The £42.4m man returned from international duty to report with the Gunners for the first time since joining from Real Madrid.
Players delighted at Ozil addition by Ash It has almost been a week since we found out Arsenal would be signing Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid in a £42.4 million deal; however the fans are still as excited to see him play as they were at the start and it doesn't look like things will [...]
Why on Earth are the press saying that Arsenal are going to send Lukas Podolski on loan to Schalke? by Stefan
Are they mad? Now I am not a massive fan of Podolski as I think he is a striker that can't score and a winger that can't cross, but he is a very good player. I say that he can't score but last season he got 11 league goals for us which isn't bad for somebody who is deployed on the left wing.
We have all criticised Arsenal's penny pinching recently because of the impact on the squad. We see Wenger being forced to turn to youth to fill out the squad but now it turns out penny pinching is halting our young player's growth. This is an unbelievable turn of events for me as it makes me even more angry.
Arsene Wenger has dismissed the whirlwind of transfer speculation surround Arsenal saying that tomorrow night's match against Fenerbahce is what really matters. The Gunners have been linked, unsuccessfully, with a series of targets over the summer. The latest player to be targeted by the north London club is Newcastle's Yohan Cabaye.
A bizarre report in today's Daily Mail suggests that Arsenal starlet Alex Oxlade Chamberlain only makes late substitute appearances to keep the club's accountants happy. In his piece, journalist Neil Ashton claims that a clause in the England international's contract means the Gunners have to pay his former club Southampton £10,000 every time he plays [.
How Wenger develops young midfielders part 1 by KJ
There is a lot of negativity surrounding Arsenal at the moment and rightly so. We've yet to bring in a proper signing and with all our injuries, we may be forced into playing a midfield trio of Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Wilshere against Villa on Saturday.
Boss in the first press conference of the season. #AFCvAVFC #Arsenal pic.twitter.com/C7t2N41oeO Arsenal.com (@Arsenal) August 16, 2013 Arsene Wenger says he wants to bring two, three or more players to Arsenal before the end of the transfer window but he wants quality not quantity. Speaking at his press conference ahead of tomorrow's Premier [.
Theo Walcott is an injury doubt for Arsenal's Premier League opener against Aston Villa on Saturday after he took a knock in England training. The Gunners star could not finish the session after getting a kick to his ankle. He was training with a depleted group of senior England players that had been bolstered by [.
There has been a lot of debate over Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in recent times after he suggested that he would prefer to be deployed as a central midfielder or in a CAM role for Arsenal. The former Southampton man has been used mainly as a winger by Arsene Wenger since his arrival two years ago, although in several interviews last season, as well as calls this pre-season, he appears to be adamant that he could do a better job in the centre of the park.
According to Arsene Wenger, Arsenal were never chasing the transfer of the 20-year old Brazilian international Bernard in the first place. The Frenchman issued an outright denial about the rumours when he was asked about it during the Gunners' tour of Asia. The media don't let a little thing like that stop them, though, and the rumours and speculation continued.
Arsene Wenger has done something that most Arsenal fans hoped and has said that Ryo Miyaichi will be hopefully staying with the squad for the coming season and be given a chance to break through properly. Miyaichi has been with the squad on the pre-season tour of Asia and Wenger has rethought his plans to send him out on loan because of his impressive performances and determination to show the management what he can do.
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey was ridiculed by team-mates Alex Oxlade Chamberlain and Theo Walcott over his lack of pace. The Welshman's post-match interview was hijacked by the Ox, who immediately quizzed him on his failure to get on the end of a long ball from Lukasz Fabianski. Walcott and Oxlade-Chamberlain then took it in turns [.
It has been clear in both of the Arsenal pre-season friendlies so far this season, that the players were struggling to cope with the hot and humid conditions, and we have seen pictures of them using ice baths during training. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain explained just how difficult it has been, but they all know that the suffering now should pay off once the Premier League season kicks off in four weeks.
Over the last few weeks there has been constant speculation linking Arsenal forward Gervinho away from the club, with Serie A side Roma interested as well as Ligue 1 sides Marseille and Lyon also interested, although the latter yesterday denied the links.
Arsenal eased to a 7-1 victory in their pre-season friendly against Vietnam. French striker Olivier Giroud scored a hat-trick his second is worth watching out for in the video above and was joined on the scoresheet by Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, Chuba Akpom (2) and Ignasi Miquel. Vietnam pulled a goal back late on [.
Arsenal's British players have fronted a promotional video for the club's new away kit, which was unveiled yesterday. Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, Kieran Gibbs, Theo Walcott, Carl Jenkinson and Aaron Ramsey star alongside Arsenal fans as they all prepare for a match by following their own rituals. The video is built around the tagline: "Our Style.
I think that fan favourite Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be an important player next season for Arsenal, with the England star definitely needing to have a more important role at the club considering his talent.
After rising through the ranks at Southampton, Arsenal signed The Ox two seasons back in a deal worth up to £12 million depending on certain factors of his contract, which I'm sure Arsenal will meet, if not already.
The young Arsenal and England star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is determined to contribute a lot more next season and help the Gunners to end the long trophy drought that is really starting to become an issue for fans and players alike. The talented 19-year old is not a striker, but he knows that his Arsenal return of just two goals last season was well below par for him and he knows he can do a lot better.
Arsene's injury update ahead of Cardiff! by Ash Ahead of this weekend's game against newly promoted side Cardiff City, Arsene Wenger has been given the positive news that several of his stars are on the road to recovery, including updates regarding the respective situations of Lukas Podolski and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain.
Amidst rumours of Arsenal's reported interest in a number of elite wide forward men across Europe which include the likes of Marco Reus and Pedro Rodriguez, there is also yet another transfer possibility that has been gaining credibility for quite some time now. Reports have emerged linking Arsenal and Premier League rivals Manchester United with [.
On the back of a disappointing defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford, Arsenal have been given a huge injury boost as winger Theo Walcott is all set to return when the Gunners welcome high flying Southampton to the Emirates following the conclusion of the international break. The England winger, who was Arsenal's top scorer [.
Phil Jones is demanding a written apology from former England Under-21 boss Stuart Pearce, according to the Daily Telegraph. Pearce criticised players aged under-21 who pulled out of representing the Under-21 team in tournaments because they had already been capped by the senior team. And he went as far as to name Manchester United defender [.
How Wenger develops young midfielders part 2 by KJ
This is a continuation of the earlier article, in which I looked at how Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has cleverly looked after the development of Aaron Ramsey. Now I am going to turn my attention to Arsenal's two other young, British central midfielders Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
1- Chamberlain has done his cruciate ligaments. Minimum of 3 months out. 2- Either way, bottom line is Ox is out for 3+ months. 3 - It's suspected to be his cruciates. Very serious injury either way for Chamberlain. 4- Don't know exactly the injury to Chamberlain something to do with his "ligaments." The above tweets are from @NorthBankBen yesterday afternoon.
Welcome to the new season! What fun! Thoughts as follows:
* It was good for five minutes. Rosicky received the ball, spun and released; Chamberlain played a delightful outside of the boot pass into the box; Giroud timed his run to perfection, and neatly slotted home. All was for the best in the best of all possible worlds
