In yesterday's press conference Mr Wenger confirmed that our Club Captain Mr. Arteta will be leaving this summer.

When we signed Mikel from Everton he was 29 y.o. with much PL experience it seemed a decent but uninspiring squad signing; at the time we had a young squad who needed guidance and, if nothing else, Arteta is a cool- head when the pressure is on.

Arsenal's title hopes took a hit on Sunday following the north London club's 3-2 defeat away to Manchester United. During a recent stretch in which the Gunners have misfired in front of goal, it was the Arsenal defense that stumbled at Old Trafford. The massive match against Manchester United was only the third game during Premier League play this season that Arsenal conceded three or more goals.

Midfielder Mikel Arteta has been Arsenal's club captain since Thomas Vermaelen departed north London for Barcelona in the summer of 2014. While it was understandable why manager Arsene Wenger chose to implement Arteta as his captain, the former Everton star wasn't exactly the overwhelming selection by many Gunner supporters (including yours truly).

Are we asking too much of Francis Coquelin?

Arsenal Arsenal at related • 0 views

There is no doubt that since his recall from loan at Charlton Athletic Francis Coquelin had a great impact on the team.

Playing as the long awaited defensive mid-fielder, he has helped stabilise the centre of our team. He is very good at breaking up opposition attacks, winning back the ball and playing simple but telling passes to our more offensively minded mid-fielders.

Firstly, there has to be a question and that is probably Is Coquelin the natural replacement for Arteta and/or Flamini?

Sales and loans and Arteta blow

Arseblog at related • 0 views

As expected the big transfer news yesterday was the sale of Benik Afobe to Wolves for around £2m, no doubt with the typical Arsenal sell-on clause involved too should he really start fulfilling the potential the club saw in him.

Highly regarded but hampered by a couple of bad knee injuries which stopped his development and his chance of catching the eye in the Capital One Cup by Carling etc, the loan spell at MK Dons was very much shop window territory, and boy did he put himself in it.

Victory at St Mary's Stadium would lift Arsenal back into the top four and leave them within striking distance of third-placed Manchester United.

The resurrection of Francis Coquelin has been one of the revelations of 2014-15, not just for Arsenal, but for the Premier League. Rarely does a player rise from a Championship outpost such as Charlton Athletic on loan to become one of the most important components of a top Premier League side. But what does Coquelin's rebirth tell us about Arsene Wenger's attitude to the defensive midfield position?

Wilshere facing a big challenge on return to fitness

Morning all.

There was some U21 action of interest last night as we beat Stoke 4-1 at the Emirates. Jack Wilshere and Serge Gnabry played the full game, Mikel Arteta for an hour, and there was 70+ minutes from Abou Diaby. A hat-trick from young striker Alex Iwobi helped Steve Gatting's side come out on top, but from our point of view we're looking at what the senior men did and what it means for the first team.

Three months for Arteta and Debuchy + Arsecast 336

Another day, another couple of three month injuries. Fairly standard stuff at the Arsenal.

As vexed as I am by the absences, in this situation I'm a little torn. On the one hand the idea that Mikel Arteta has fallen victim to a 'bony spur' and that it's only been discovered now is a bit frustrating.

Players get some rest + some Giroud thoughts

Arseblog at related • 0 views

How nice it is to go into a long week off the back of a good win. I say a long week because we don't play the Mugsmashers until Sunday, which is probably not a bad thing really.

Although that's unlikely to make any difference to the availability of Laurent Koscielny or Aaron Ramsey, we might have Mikel Arteta back, and with concerns over Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's groin we need as much time as possible to get players fit and healthy.
