Arsenal's defensive record has not been the best so far this season, with the Gunners failing to keep a clean sheet in the Premier League since their 0-0 draw with Middlesbrough. There are a number of reasons which could explain the poor defensive show, many of which have already been discussed, but one change I [.
Arsene Wenger has already given us some advance warning about what sort of Arsenal team we are likely to see lined up against tonight's visitors to the Emirates stadium for the quarter-final of the EFL cup, as reported on the Arsenal website. So the Southampton manager will already know that it will be Carl Jenkinson [.
The big news from the current international break from an Arsenal point of view involves our on-loan midfield star Jack Wilshere, who has been brought back into the fold by the temporary manager Gareth Southgate after getting some regular game time with his current club AFC Bournemouth. I am not surprised to be honest but [.
Maybe it is because we are so used to Arsenal being plagued by injury problems year after year that it seems normal, but it does seem a bit odd that a lot of the talk in the football media in the build up to the north London derby this weekend is about the injury problems [...]
I was tempted to give my Arsenal Man of the Match award to Olivier Giroud for his super sub heroics and our central midfield warrior Francis Coquelin seriously impressed me again but it would be extremely harsh on the amazing Alexis Sanchez if I did not recognise the fact that he was the best player [.
There was a period in this match when Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger were thinkingh that it was going to be another of those days when Arsenal somehow failed to win a match that we should have won at a canter. But in the end the Gunners did win at a canter and the forgotten [...]
Unless Arsene Wenger is indulging in a bit of kidology with his rival manager, I am surprised to see that the Frenchman, instead of keeping his cards close to his chest like he normally does, has revealed a lot about the Arsenal team that will start the EFL cup match at home to Reading, as [...]
The clear and obvious priority for Arsenal this season is to fight for the Premier League title, with a decent run in the Champions League a close second, which would be greatly helped by finally finishing on top of our European group. So with crucial EPL and UCL games coming up and with Arsene Wenger [.
Hector Bellerin had to be subbed off during a qualifierfor the Spain Under-21 side last week, and Arsenal had feared the worst about a potential ankle injury. The right-back has been dropped back down to the Under-21 side after a campaign with the senior side at the European Championships, but was unable to complete the [.
The Arsenal forward was the only one of the current Arsenal team included in the first England international squad selected by the new man in charge of the three lions. He did not start but will be pleased to have made an impact after Sam Allardyce brought him on for Raheem Sterling with 20 minutes [.
Arsenal defender Kieran Gibbs is consideringpushing his club to allow him to leave. The left-back has lost his battle with Nacho Monreal for a first-team role under Arsene Wenger, and having picked up less than 400 match minutes in the league last term, is heavily considering his future. Gibbs is yet to start a single [.
It may have been different if not for the injury and fitness problems suffered by some of the Arsenal players, but this summer's Euro 2016 tournament did not see as many Gunners involved as we would have expected, with England especially light on Arsenal stars. The only Gunner that Roy Hodgson did take was Jack [.
Celtic have tied Kieran Tierney down to a new five-year contract this week, shunning any interest from Arsenal and Liverpool. The left-back enjoyed an impressive breakthrough season in the Scottish Premier League, earning a place in the division's Team of the Year, and was linked with a potential move to the Premier League.
The chances of Ricardo Rodriguez becoming an Arsenal player this summer and joining his Switzerland international team mate Granit Xhaka at the Emirates is looking stronger by the minute. The only things that could stop it happen are if the rumours about Arsene Wenger wanting the talented young left back turn out to be false, [.
Arsenal could mean business next season by SOH Now as we all know, Arsene tends to anger and frustrate Arsenal fans all around the world when it comes to transfers of incoming players to the club each summer but is he about to change all that and splash the cash? There have been numerous [...]
Liverpool are claimed to have made official contact with Kieran Gibbs over a potential move from Arsenal this summer. The left-back has fallen out of Arsene Wenger's first-team plans this season, emphatically favouring Nacho Monreal for the role in the defence. Gibbs is now believed to be eager on securing an exit in search of [.
While the season has been a pretty tough one for Arsenal fans to take, apart from the happy bookend that were provided by us beating Jose Mourinho and Chelsea to win the Community Shield and then the implosion of Tottenham that allowed us to nip past them on the final day and retain our stranglehold [.
Arsenal left-back Kieran Gibbs is claimed to be considering a move away from the club this summer. The 26 year-old has fallen down the pecking order in North-London, with Nacho Monreal having kept him on the sidelines with very consistent displays this term. The Spanish international has been getting plaudits from all around for his [.
Every single Arsenal fan in the world is aware that we have to play Barcelona on Tuesday, but we are also aware that the chances of Arsenal winning the FA Cup for a record third time in a row are much greater than progressing any further in the Champions League, so perhaps we should have [...]
There has been much talk from the Arsenal fans discussing who they want Wenger to start against Hull City tomorrow, but I am pretty good at reading the Bosses mind and I am now going to tell you the team that he WILL name to start the game, and we will find out how I [...]
Arsene is a coward and needs to leave despite win against Bournemouth. by KM Hello everyone. How do you feel about our game against Bournemouth? I actually feel depressed even though Arsenal won. Why? We have completely abandoned our style. We had all the time in the world to correct the worst goal difference in [.
I really hope that Arsene Wenger sends the Arsenal team out with some licence to express themselves on Sunday, even though the pressure is on for us to pick up a first Premier League win since the Gunners beat Newcastle United in the first game of 2016. That win was only a 1-0 and we [...]
It was not really too difficult tp pick a Man of the Match from the Arsenal win over Burnley in the fourth round of the FA cup, despite some impressive performances from the likes of Kieran Gibbs, Calum Chambers, Alex Iwobi and the Ox because the star man Alexis Sanchez scored the winner and set [...
There have been Arsenal transfer rumours for the last two years about the Spanish left back Nacho Monreal making a possible return to his home country with a number of La Liga clubs linked. But earlier this month the reports began to filter through that Monreal was close to agreeing a new contract to stay [.
Arsenal paid the price for being too passive and suicidal defending by KM Hello fellow Gooners. I am highly disappointed with the fact we threw away the lead and I cannot accept the fact we did far too many defensive changes and we were hoping to just roll over the finishing line and with the [...
While this news will be welcomed with open arms by just about every Arsenal fan on the planet, it might not go down too well with the family and friends of a certain Mister Kieran Gibbs, because the England international is having a hell of a job getting a game for the Arsenal first team [...]
Arsene Wenger has made four changes to the Arsenal starting line up that lost at Southampton two days ago and you can hardly blame him after the lacklustre effort we saw from the Gunners at St. Mary's. The only real surprise for me is that our German centre back Per Mertesacker keeps his place after [.
With Arsenal missing so many crucial first team players, Sam Allardyce will be hoping that his Sunderland team can cause the Gunners problems although they themselves are also suffering from injuries to key personell. With Francis Coquelin and Santo Cazorla both ruled out for at least three months, Arsene Wenger will have to find a [.
Arsenal may be suffering from the usual festive injury list, but we still have a lot of quality in the squad. Wenger's latest injury update wasn't exactly full of festive cheer for the fans. He said "At the moment on Alexis, Santi and Mikel, we don't know how long they will be out for." And [...]
The Choice of Player Replacing Coquelin Would Best Portray Our Title Hopes by NO With the injury to Francis Coquelin, Arsenal's title credentials face placing on ice, as far as Arsenal fans are concerned. And the fans have reason to worry as Coquelin has been a massive revelation since his return from a cut-short loan [.
All Arsenal fans will now breathe a collective sigh of relief as Alexis Sanchez has come through his final game of this break, although it was a bad-tempered game (as it always is when you play Uruguay) and the Gunners superstar had to play the full 90 minutes for the second time in four days [...]
We will have to wait and see whether the Arsenal and England defender Kieran Gibbs is selected by his national manager Roy Hodgson for the friendly game against France at Wembley tonight, which is bound to be an odd and emotionally charged encounter after the terrible terrorist attacks in Paris, but with England wracked by [.
After the international break, Arsenal have a seemingly "easier" run of fixtures, but I am seriously hoping that we have Hector Bellerin and Oxlade-Chamberlain back in the squad as well as we were looking very thin before the break. The game against West Brom is coming up at the weekend, and with Alexis Sanchez certain [.
Without Santi Cazorla out of the game, Arsenal were getting battered from all sides by Tottenham and not getting any service to our isolated forwards, so Per Mertesacker was very pleased when Matthieu Flamini replaced Santi at half time, and even more pace was injected into the team when Kieran Gibbs entered the attack force.
It really hits home how badly Arsenal's injury list is affecting the squad, when Kieran Gibbs admits that he thought he was probably the most likeliest to be sent on when the Gunners were searching for an equalizer against Tottenham. Gibbs was asked after the game if he expected to be used up front, and [.
Two points lost or one point gained? by OA As Arsenal supporters we all have that one hope to win titles such as the league, but there are many things that we disagree on. However, one thing that admittedly all Arsenal fans can agree on is the fact that we were shocking against Spurs. The [...]
Arsenal were on the ropes against Tottenham for most of the first half, and it seems that effectively we were playing with ten men for the whole 45 minutes as there was something very wrong with Santi Cazorla from the start. Considering that, we actually did well to only be one goal down by half [...
The Gunners started the first half in lively fashion, but Spurs catch up with the pace and it is exciting end to end stuff for the first 20 minutes. Chances from both sides but Campbell doesn't quite look up to speed as yet, but does earn some whining from Rose when his sleeve brushed his [...]
Did You all see Bayern's bench or was I dreaming? Assessing Arsenal's reserves By Galen After seeing our starting XI and looking at Bayern's bench, I expected Arsenal to lose the game. I have finally come to the conclusion that we are good football side but not a great team. Barcelona had a transfer ban [.
Most of the media sites, including the BBC, are reporting this morning that the two Arsenal players that got injured on Tuesday, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, will both be out for at least the next three games. So now Arsene Wenger has to try and reshape the first XI starting with this weekend's game [.
