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 [.
Just like the poster in agent Fox Mulder´s office, Arsenal fans `want to believe´ or at least we did, that our former captain Cesc Fabregas still had Arsenal at his heart. He said as much even after leaving us to join his boyhood club Barcelona, so we were all shocked to see him join our [...]
Our great leader Arsene Wenger has no interest in citing history lessons ahead of Arsenal's top-of-the-table clash against Chelsea on Sunday, and the Frenchman thinks that current form should be the deciding factor in the game. Wenger may have lost his twelve previous meetings with Jose Mourinho, but, as he points out, they have not [.
Wenger's history against Mourinho by RC On Sunday Chelsea travel to the Emirates to face Arsenal. It will be the thirteenth occasion that managers Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho have met. The previous twelve have seen either a Mourinho win or a draw with Wenger still yet to experience victory over the Portugese manager.
I know that Arsene Wenger has been keen to play down the importance of Arsenal's recent poor record against Chelsea, and especially his own record against their sneering manager Jose Mourinho. But I do think it is closer to the truth the way the football media is presenting the Sunday clash between the top two [.
We have the top-of-the-table clash this Saturday as Arsenal take on the league leaders Chelsea at the Emirates, and Arsene Wenger will be desperate to get his first-ever win over Jose Mourinho and prove to the world that the Gunners can be real challengers for the title next season. For those of you who like [.
I am sure that the former Arsenal midfielder and club captain Cesc Fabregas will be hoping for a decent reception when he comes back to the Emirates to play for the first time since he left the club for Barcelona and La Liga back in August of 2011. But I don't think that he will [...]
Setting up improved targets for next year maybe? by Konstantin Mitov If you are Arsene Wenger in the beginning of a new season talking to Ivan Gazidis for the targets of Arsenal, you'd pretty much know how the conversation goes: IG Hey Arsene, Top 4 this year? AW Same as always. The truth [...]
I really hope that Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players do not spend this week preparing for the top of the table clash with Chelsea assuming that Chelsea will come to the Emirates stadium ripe for the plucking because of the striker crisis currently affecting the Blues, because that way lies disaster.
Has there ever been a better time for Arsene Wenger to get his first ever win over Jose Mourinho? Chelsea must be nailed on to win this years Premier League trophy, but if Arsenal want to seriously believe that they can win it next season, then they simply have to prove they can beat the [...]
I am sure there will be many pundits around this week with advice for Arsene Wenger on how Arsenal can beat Chelsea, and the first one to weigh in is the ex-Gunners star Charlie Nicholas, who believes that we need to flood the midfield to stifle Chelsea's counter-attacking force. "Arsenal should play with two holding [.
I am not surprised to hear that Jose Mourinho has his beady eyes on another one of the Arsenal players. He has done well enough with Ashley Cole in his first spell at Chelsea and now our former captain Cesc Fabregas looks like inspiring them to another Premier League trophy. And Mourinho knows all about [.
Arsenal made hard work of beating the Championship side Reading on Saturday, but Arsene Wenger was proud that his team kept their heads and went on to secure a place in the FA Cup Final for the second time in two years. Arsenal are now aiming for their TENTH win in a row when they [...]
I think most Arsenal fans would rather have seen a drawn game between Manchester United and Man City at the weekend and I know for sure that we were all gutted when former Gunner Cesc Fabregas scored in the last couple of minutes to give Chelsea a vital three points away to a QPR side [...]
To be fair to them, many Arsenal fans would have liked Arsene Wenger to do exactly the same thing to our Premier League rivals that Jose Mourinho has been doing to the Gunners since he came skulking back to Chelsea from La Liga where he failed in his objective of stopping the dominance of Barcelona [.
Arsenal have had so many injury problems in recent times that most of us fans feel like medical experts. So when we saw Diego Costa pull up after just 12 minutes of Chelsea's narrow win against Stoke City last weekend, it appeared likely that the Brazilian born Spanish international would probably miss the rest of [.
Arsenal are doing our bit by winning all our Premier League games and putting in very good performances, but unfortunately it is probably going to be a little to late after our struggles in the early part of the season. As the manager said yesterday, we still need Chelsea to slip up dramatically and even [.
If the Arsenal transfer rumours are true and Arsene Wenger really is keen on bringing the Chelsea and Czech Republic keeper Petr Cech to north London this summer, it could be a key addition and could really help to give Arsenal a little extra edge in our quest to end the wait for a Premier [...]
Wojciech Szczesny has seemingly been permanently relegated to the subs bench at Arsenal and there is every possibility that he may decide to move on this summer to safeguard his place in the Poland national side. As for our current Number One, the jury still appears to be out on David Ospina abilities as a [.
One way of looking at the way things have been going for Arsenal this season with referees is that our luck is evening itself out, as the old adage says will happen. Except that it is supposed to work over the course of the season and Arsenal have had, in my opinion, the wrong end [...]
A few wins in a row and Arsenal fans seem to forget years of hurt by KM The AKBs are back with a bang! The mood at the Arsenal camp is swinging faster than a pendulum on a clock. Winning against the like of West Ham and QPR seems to be enough for some to [...]
