Arsenal finished last season in style and we have taken up where we left off, with four wins out of four in the pre-season games, despite the squad rotation and youth player additions. We have lots of promising youngsters and just about all the senior midfielders and strikers nicked a goal or two in our [.
For those Arsenal fans out there who fancy a flutter, you can still get a pretty good price of around 5 to 1 for Arsene Wenger to steer the Gunners to a first Premier League title since 2004 and I reckon those odds will drop quickly once the manager adds another couple of new signings [...]
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has admitted his club have made a bid for John Stones and says any deal for the defender is in Everton's hands. The Toffees are believed to have rejected a bid of around £20m for the 21-year-old, who played in Everton's 3-1 Asia Trophy final defeat to Arsenal on Saturday.
It seems as though Arsenal fans and everyone connected with the Gunners are not the only people who want to see us lift the Premier League trophy. I am not talking about the football media either, as there are not too many of them out there rooting for Arsenal and plenty, like the doughnut Adrian [..
Community Shield Chelsea v Arsenal by JMT On the 2nd of August Arsenal will play what I consider to be one of the most important matches of the new season. Of course, this is not a Premier League game but rather the Community Shield that I am referring to. There is a myriad of [...]
On the face of it, you could say that it should not really matter if Arsenal and Arsene Wenger cannot end the run of games against the Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho without a victory. That run stretches over the Portuguese manager´s two spells at Stamford Bridge and although it is annoying, the two league games [.
Before it became almost certain that Arsenal would be able to complete the transfer of Petr Cech from Chelsea, despite the misgivings and wishes of their manager Jose Mourinho, there were some Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that the Czech Republic international would be just one of a double raid on Stamford Bridge.
Can Cech help us break the Mourinho voodoo? by SB Now this is one story that will refuse to die till the transfer is complete. The papers were abuzz with the news that Petr Cech has already signed for Arsenal. The Czech Republic goal keeper is reportedly open to joining the Gunners. But, the Chelsea [.
Usually, or at least when I have placed a bet on some sporting event, I want nothing more than whichever bookie has taken the bet to be left out of pocket. But with my Arsenal fan head on, I hope that the online bookmakers Betfair have got this one bang on. According to a Metro [...]
By 1970's Gooner Arsene actually called Fergie an annoying man, if you remember. But Mourinho can be so annoying,really. He cannot accept that a player of his has chosen to play for Arsenal. He fears us so much he refused us last season the loan deal for Demba Ba and now he tries to meddle with one of our younger stars in a kind of recriminatory retaliation asking for his transfer to
The never-ending saga of Chelsea's Petr Cech moving to Arsenal seems to be nearing the final scenes, with the whole world and his dog reporting that talks will be 'accelerated' next week. It will be a blow to David Ospina, who could be left out in the cold after having a fantastic six months as [...]
It all seems just too good to be true, but if there is any truth in the old adage that 'There is no smoke without fire' then we can take it as a given that Petr Cech will be signing for Arsenal in the very near future. Apparently the rich Arabs at Paris St Germain [...]
Not a lot happening in the transfer market by KM Hello everyone! Summer is coming and football is out until August. So whats there to talk about? Not a lot really, apart from a few Jose Mourinho comments of course. They always seem to come around and more often than not they have a dig [...]
Family and Emotional Clubs and The Ruthless Clubs. by Galen Arsenal has a great tradition and history. One that we are very proud of. When you think about Arsenal in one word you think of "Class". In the way in which we play or the way we take care of our players and the way [...]
Transfer systems. Who should be in charge of Arsenal's transfers? by Galen Every football club have got a transfer system and a process. Loads of Arsenal fans have complained about our system. So I took this opportunity to look at our transfer system and that of other top football clubs. The Presidential System.
Arsenal's Tactical Evolution by TJ Both Wenger and Guardiola are believers/disciples of the Rinus Michels school of total football. Both Wenger and Guardiola build teams which are distinguishable by 3 characteristics skill, speed and intelligence. Both managers crave creativity in all players not just the attacking players.
If all the Arsenal transfer rumours are right then it appears that the Chelsea and Czech Republic keeper Petr Cech has made his choice and wants to join Arsenal this summer. Jose Mourinho has made it clear that he does not want this to happen and I am sure that fans of the Blues feel [...]
Retaining the FA cup trophy was fantastic for Arsenal. It gave us fans something to celebrate and the performance proved that the players have got rid of that building pressure to win a trophy that nearly saw us throw away another chance against Hull City at Wembley a year ago. But I think it tells [.
And Jose, Yes, Mourinho Analyses Arsenal's Season! by ND I know how much that man is hated here and for obvious reasons: he's arrogant, he talks sh*t most times about Wenger and Arsenal generally, he's friends with a certain John Terry etc. Oh, before I forget both friends are c%"&s, right? But sometimes, its those [.
Many Arsenal fans and pundits, including Thierry Henry, has made it clear that the Gunners need to buy an upgrade to Wojciech Szczesny this summer if we are REALLY going to challenge Chelsea for the Premiership title. David Ospina's stats have been immaculate, but after the defeat to Swansea even his capabilities are being questioned.
Chelsea started the season well and quickly built up a 10 point gap over a misfiring Arsenal side, but as tiredness and attacking injuries set in towards the end, Jose Mourinho used his park-the-bus tactics to gain points from Man United and also Arsenal. The cries of "boring, Boring, Chelsea" rained down from the stands, [.
Are the bad old Fergie days coming back for Arsenal? by Sam P I do not think for a second that Arsenal will fail to get the points we need from the last four Premier League games of the season. There is still a chance that Louis van Gaal and his Manchester United side could [...]
From reading the comments on JustArsenal, I see there seems to be two trains of thought those that love Arsene and will stick by him through thick and thin, and those that feel it's time for a change (AKB vs AOB). I fall somewhere in the middle, I love Arsene and what he's done [...]
Now it has become completely clear that Arsenal would not have the opportunity to leapfrog the league leaders Chelsea and pip them to the Premier League title, the Arsenal fans and everyone concerned with the club have begun to look at the season on the whole and look for the reasons why Jose Mourinho´s team [.
A letter to Jose Mourinho by MA Hello Mr. Jose let me start by a congratulations, for frustrating us by denying us any penetration. For securing the mighty BPL by some sheer luck and tactical corruption. For ensuring Arsene's run against you is nothing but continued frustration. And giving your darling "the media" pure happiness [.
The Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has made it clear that he will be leaving Stamford Bridge this summer, and, according to a report in todays Mirror, he has decided that he DEFINITELY going to either Arsenal or Paris St Germain. They say that Cech would prefer to stay in London where he has lived for [.
There are a couple of reports doing the rounds of the football media today, both in a similar vein, that suggest to me that it will be a lot harder for Arsenal to win the Premier League title next season. It is not that the Gunners are not improving because I really believe that we [...]
Arsenal are on a ten-game unbeaten run right now, with nine wins included, but are still set to finish runners-up to Jose Mourinho's Chelsea, who have only lost two league games in the whole campaign. We all know that Thierry Henry has given the opinion that we are not quite ready to win the League [.
Okay Arsenal fans, we are still waiting for that victory for Arsenal over a Jose Mourinho side and the 0-0 draw yesterday finally put an end to our fading hopes of an unlikely Premier League trophy win this season. But Arsene Wenger and the players are not and are right not to be too downcast, [...]
Although he may not have come out and said it, you just know that Arsene Wenger would absolutely love to have seen his Arsenal side record a first win against his managerial rival Jose Mourinho, even though the Frenchman admitted after the game that all three points would still not have been enough for the [.
Although JOse Mourinho started with no recognised striker in his Chelsea team, they were not really as defensive as we expected. THey still had plenty of men behind the ball and worked hard to close the Gunners down and give us no space, but they also tried to get forward when they could and get [...
We can only sit back and admire the way that Arsene Wenger has turned things around this season to put Arsenal back into the title race after a horrendous start to the season. The Gunners have emphasised their improvement by beating both Manchester clubs on their home ground, but there is still one monkey on [.
I used to like them. I used to like the fancy-dans of Kings Road. I liked John Hollins, Charlie Cooke and Ossie and even Terry Vegetables. I enjoyed watching Ruud Gullit and Vialli and Pat Nevin, They had swagger, class and style. They were Chelsea but post the Russian have become The Chavs. New money, new ethos efficiency over character.
Arsenal are aiming to win their tenth game in row tomorrow against Chelsea, and they can hardly be in a more confident mood having scored 20 goals in the previous 9 games, and only conceding 5. I personally believe that having David Ospina in goal has been the greatest aid to our improvement, but Arsene [.
There has been much talk about Arsene Wenger's woeful record against Jose Mourinho's Chelsea sides, despite both managers saying that games are won on the day, not by the history books. As Mourinho himself said: ‘I am not proud of my record against Arsenal. For me achievement is to win on Sunday, it is not [.
Mourinho still has a point about Arsenal by DN No matter how much Arsenal fans want to comfort ourselves by saying that Arsene Wenger did a brilliant job by keeping the Gunners in the Champions League when his transfer budget was basically a piece of string and a winning smile, the fact is that football [.
Juan Cuadrado hasn't exactly set the world alight with his performances in the Premier League ever since he sealed a move to Chelsea from Fiorentina last January. With speculation rife over his long term future at the club, Jose Mourinho has been quick to play down reports and has backed the Colombian.
