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.
He was the subject of a fair few of the many Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds of the football media this summer, but we now know that Pedro Rodriguez Laresma will not be joining us from Barcelona. According to Arsene Wenger, however, this particular transfer move was never on the cards. While it is [.
While Arsenal fans are still patiently waiting (or pulling our hair out in frustration) for Arsene Wenger to add to the early signing of Petr Cech, we have at least had the comfort of seeing last season´s Premier League champions Chelsea struggle. Jose Mourinho and his expensive bunch of players have still not won a [.
It is not often that Chelsea's Jose Mourinho and Arsenal's Arsene Wenger agree on anything, but they are totally in agreement that the British transfer window should close before the start of the season proper. The Portugese bus conductor was very emphatic about it. He said on Wednesday: "The transfer window is over.
As we approach Arsenal's first League match of the season on Sunday, there is a lot of discussion about which teams should be favourites to win the Premier League title come May next year. All bookies are giving Chelsea as most likely to retain their title, with Arsenal given as third best (after Man City) [.
Arsenal owe Chelsea a huge thank you by Sam P Although the Premier League season has not even started yet, it already looks as though Arsenal are set for a much better year. If Arsene Wenger and the likes of Ozil, Cazorla and Koscielny do end up as champions of England next year, they will [...]
Mikel Arteta has just endured a very difficult year, in personal terms at least, but it did end well for the Arsenal captain as he came on as a sub against Chelsea at Wembley last Sunday to help his team mates keep up the brilliant recent run of trophy success. Just as we did last [...]
There was a great sense of relief when the promise of Arsenal's fantastic pre-season culminated in a fantastic win over Chelsea. I certainly was relieved when the whistle was finally blown, to confirm that Arsene Wenger had gained his first ever win over the Portugese bus conductor at his 14th attempt.
There has been a lot of debate among Arsenal fans and talk in the football media about the striker situation at Arsenal. But for some reason the same can not be said of our big Premier League rivals Chelsea, despite them looking seriously short on fire power. We still do not know if Arsene Wenger [..
Arsenal can forget about Mourinho´s moan! by Sam P After Arsenal beat Chelsea 1-0 at Wembley to lift the Community Shield yesterday, we all knew that their manager Jose Mourinho would have something to say about the game other than simply congratulating the Gunners on a good game. He did not disappoint of course although [.
BREAKING THE CHAIN: WALCOTT, STRIKERS, THE MOURINHO CURSE AND TROPHIES by Uche Isn't it strange how negativity just trails this Arsenal team wherever they go? Yet they keep their heads down and keep proving the doubters wrong. It is bewildering. They say they cannot win a trophy. They don't spend money.
Arsenal 1-0 Chelsea Review A corner turned... by SB In the end, when it all happened, it looked like it was simply inevitable. The law of averages was bound to catch up with Jose Mourinho at some point but even the most ardent supporters of Arsene Wenger wouldn't have predicted that this year Community [.
I have felt that Arsenal and Arsene Wenger have been the target of some unfair criticism from the football media in recent years. We have been an easy target for people like Michael Owen and Adrian Durham who have conveniently ignored all the problems, such as a crippling injury list and not being able to [.
The 2015/16 season is just about to start in earnest – with the curtain raiser at Wembley between Chelsea and Arsenal competing for the Community Shield this afternoon. With Mourinho hogging all the headlines for his latest rant at Wenger, you may be forgiven for thinking that this match is important only for him.
Despite his assertion this week that losing to Arsenal on Sunday would not really mean all that much to Chelsea or have a say on their ability to retain the Premier League trophy they won at a canter last season, not many Arsenal fans or anyone who knows much about football really believes Jose Mourinho.
There's something in Arsene Wenger and Arsenal that gets Jose Mourinho talking. He loves putting it across Wenger and never stops short of taking potshots at his counterpart. Continuing his mind games over the Frenchman – who many believe would be one of his toughest competitors this season – Mourinho taunted Wenger's record against him.
First of all Arsenal fans, I would like to take this opportunity to once again get stuck into Jose Mourinho, as I think that no chance to do this should ever be passed up. The Chelsea boss has been talking out of his rear end again this week so let´s make the most of it. [...]
The Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho loves talking about his accomplishments. And he tries spicing it up with potshots about his opponents, especially if it's Arsenal! If it involves talking about Arsene Wenger then it energizes the Blues manager all the more. But no matter how much Mourinho tries to provoke Wenger, the Frenchman keeps his [.
Sunday's Community Shield is all about one player. We've taken a look at whether Mourinho made the right choice and how much Arsenal will truly benefit from their new man, Petr Cech. by RC The Community Shield focuses on two teams. The Premier League Champions and the FA Cup winners. However, this Sunday's encounter between [.
Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger have had our fair share of moans about the Premier League officials over the years and often with good reason. And for a team that has often been filled with creative, technically adept but not necessarily physical players, the Gunners disciplinary record has been pretty poor.
Not a game into the season and the mind games have begun already by KM Well, well, now. The Arsenal transfer news may be as dry as the Sahara desert, but Jose Mourinho's mouth was full of wet words for Arsenal once again. I mean how do you not just hate the guy. His methods [...]
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 [...]
It's not uncommon for a bloke in England watching a football news program to hear the phrase "manager lose the dressing room". An idiom referring to a situation in which the players cease to respect and follow their manager's instructions, this phrase is such a popular term to use in speculating any disputes within a football club, not least the potential resignation or sacking of the managers.
