EPL Talk at related • 1 view

Rewind to May 17th 2014. Arsenal have just ended their nine-year wait for a trophy and everyone around the club is elated. This coupled with a 17th consecutive top 4 finish signified a great season for Arsenal Football Club. This happiness that I speak of continued throughout the summer as Arsenal approached a summer transfer window with no financial constraints for the first time since the beginning of the Emirates Stadium construction.

Is Cheick Tiote the answer to Arsenal’s problems?

With Mikel Arteta out injured (and Diaby of course but that goes without saying), Arsenal's only real defensive midfielder is Matthieu Flamini at the moment. All our readers have been clamouring for Wenger to bring in a new beast to help out the defence but until now that seems to have fallen on deaf ears.

Predicted Lineups – Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur

Derbies are brutal. This isn't breaking news, but derbies are games that are woefully brutal on the supporters leading up to the match, and the games rarely live up to the pre-match hype. It's not a stretch to say that the latest North London Derby won't be the same. Both teams have obvious strengths and frailties, so it should least be an interesting tactical battle.

Why Arsenal’s 4-1-4-1 Formation Is Not Working

EPL Talk at related • 3 views

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has implemented a new 4-1-4-1 formation as of late, with either Mikel Arteta or Mathieu Flamini being deployed as the sole defensive midfielder in the middle of the pitch. The lack of manpower in the space just in front of Arsenal's back four was one of the reasons (there were plenty) Borussia Dortmund dominated the north London team in their opening Champions League group stage match Tuesday night.

Since the end of May, Arsenal has been linked with a host of defensive midfielders to fill the void in the middle of the pitch for the north London club. The Gunners deployed Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini for much of the season last campaign (they also even used Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain at times).

What Arsenal need this summer – Part 2 (midfield and attack)

Last week I considered some of the summer chin scratchers facing Arsene Wenger with respect to his goalkeepers and defence. This week, it's the midfield and the forward line that come under the microscope. Whilst I think the squad needs some bolstering numerically at the back, there are some more nuanced questions about how the coaching staff tinkers with the formula further forward.

Injuries mount and questions need to be answered

Arseblog at related • 0 views

Monday morning and we pick up the pieces from Saturday's draw with Sp*rs. The main issue, of course, is the injury situation ahead of a busy week in Europe and the Premier League.

Mikel Arteta and Aaron Ramsey are both out for Galatasaray and Chelsea, while Jack Wilshere is a doubt after what looked to me, at least, a nasty ankle turn.

Things looking up on in the injury front

As this is a time in which we insist on gleaning the maximum from the smallest amount of available information (guilty as charged, your honour), there are some conclusions we can draw from yesterday's training pics.

  1. Mesut Ozil appears to be all right. He was pictured lurking in the background, looking suspicious but definitely not like somebody whose ankle was falling off.

Thoughts on Arteta’s injury and Podolski’s potential departure

Arseblog at related • 0 views

Morning all.

Some worrying news regarding Mikel Arteta to start with. The initial prognosis for his ankle injury is that he'll miss 'at least two weeks' and the club don't expect him to be available again until after the international break.

After Everton, Besiktas and then Leicester next Sunday we have the first Interlull of the new campaign and following that it's a game against Champions Man City.

Contractuality

Arseblog at related • 0 views

During the summer months, the transfer window is the predominant focus of supporter attention. In fact, in this day and age, the window has become a kind of monolithic essence, its popularity seems to have outstripped the actual game of football itself. Whilst transfers are obviously an important feature of a club's activity during pre-season, there are plenty of other issues to occupy a manager's mind.
