When Arsenal travelled to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea in the Premier League in late March, we ended up with our biggest defeat of the season. And after that 6-0 humbling, made even worse by the fact that it was a landmark day for Arsene Wenger and was completely ruined by his arch enemy Jose [...
It can be frustrating for Arsenal fans at times, when the team or a particular player have just come off the pitch after an absolute shocker. Unlike some managers (cough, cough Mourinho and Fergie I'm looking at you) the man we call the Prof is always supportive of his Gunners. To be fair to the [...
There are reports this morning that Arsenal are attempting to hijack Chelsea's move for the French striker Loic Remy, but we all know that Arsene Wenger had three months to meet the Frenchman's buy-out clause of just 8.5million but has only now decided to take action after Olivier Giroud was ruled out for the next [.
Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Arsenal will have to do without Olivier Giroud leading the line for around four months after the Frenchman fractured his left tibia at the end of the Everton game, but at least the timing of the injury gives the boss a few days to bring in a replacement. But while [..
The annoying Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is usually running Arsene Wenger down in one way or another, but I have finally found a subject that they both agree on. The Arsenal boss has been complaining about the Premier League not delaying the start of the season, so as to give the players enough time to [.
Can Arsene Wenger prove Jose Mourinho wrong once again? by SE "He is a specialist in failure. 8 years without a piece of silverware, that is failure" were the words coming from the putrid Portuguese, who didn't fail to mince his words when he held parties for journalists on Friday evenings as part of pre-match [.
For quite a while now, it has not been the easiest job in the world to be an Arsenal fan. Not only have we had to endure the club's slide from the pinnacle of becoming the only team not to lose a single game in a Premier League season, but have had to bite our [...]
It looks like Arsenal could soon have five World Cup winning players in the squad, when previously it was only our Spanish midfield maestro Santi Cazorla with one of FIFA's top medals to his name. After Germany beat Argentina in extra time on Sunday night, three more Gunners joined Cazorla, and according to a Daily [.
There is a very unexpected Arsenal transfer rumour doing the rounds this morning. It involves a shock move by Arsene Wenger for the Serbian international defender Branislav Ivanovic. I am not surprised to hear that the Frenchman would like to sign the Serb, as reported by Metro, I just cannot see it happening.
Arsenal´s old El Capitan has confirmed that Arsene Wenger simply rejected to exercise the Gunners famous "buy-back" option when Cesc Fabregas decided it was time to leave Barcelona, but is now looking to be "phenomenally successful" at our bitter rivals Chelsea. Fabregas revealed that in his conversations with Wenger,the Frenchman made it clear that Mesut [.
I am glad that Arsenal are not a club that has bought it's way to football glory, and that Arsene Wenger has done more for the Gunners, English football and many young footballers' careers. But as much as we might feel a bit superior in some ways to the billionaire's plaything that is Chelsea, it [..
There is some Arsenal transfer news today that could be seen as bad news for the Gunners, but I personally do not think so. Because the Arsenal rumour linking us with a free summer transfer move for the Cameroon international striker Samuel Eto'o never seemed like a good idea to me. The 33-year old may [.
There has been a lot of talk about the former Arsenal captain and fan favourite Cesc Fabregas recently. Many of us Gooners have always harboured hopes that we would see the midfield magician back in the red and white of Arsenal one day, so the growing likelihood of him going to Chelsea does not make [.
It seems like Arsenal and Chelsea are operating at different poles of the football world. It is not all about the mutual bad feeling between managers Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho either, although clearly the two do not see eye to eye on very much at all. Now The Telegraph are reporting that the spiteful [.
Is the Fabregas saga just a part of Arsene's brilliance? by JA Arsenal apparently no longer want Cesc Fabregas, the player who had left Arsenal to join back his boyhood club FC Barcelona back in 2011. Now he wants a return back to the Gunners but guess what Cesc, Arsene doesn't want you, or does [...
It will be a difficult thing for Arsenal fans to take, if it happens, but the media are growing ever more sure that our former captain Cesc Fabregas is leaving his La Liga club Barcelona, and that his next club is going to be our London rivals Chelsea. There is a good reason for the [...]
Arsenal's little Spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla is currently training with his Spain team-mates ahead of their World Cup warm-up against Ecuador this weekend, so surely he must be training every day with Cesc Fabregas and should have more chance the most to know what is going on with his alleged transfer.
The widely decorated Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o still has bags of ability going by some of his excellent performances for Arsenal's London rivals this season, but his one year contract is now set to end and he has no intention of extending his stay at Stamford Bridge. According to today's Mirror, Eto'o is keen to [.
After nine years without a trophy, Arsenal finally have an FA cup to celebrate. Since Patrick Vieira scored the final penalty against Man United to lift the trophy in 2005, Arsenal fans have had to take some serious ribbing from their rivals, but now it is time for some payback. The spuds are too easy, [.
Yaya Sanogo has already had some bad luck with injuries in his young football career, but just like his Arsenal team mates Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere, the French striker has not let it get him down. Sanogo seems to have a great attitude and judging by his antics while celebrating the FA cup final [.
I cannot believe that some Arsenal fans are still not happy after winning the FA cup. And poor old Arsene Wenger is the top target foe abuse again. Okay the Gunners made it hard work for themselves with a dreadful start, but how is that the manager's fault? Do you think he spent all week [...]
Arsene Wenger clearly keeps a close eye on Spain's La Liga and Spanish players everywhere as he looks for potential Arsenal transfers. The Gunners already have three Spaniards in the first team and others coming through the youth system, while Cesc Fabregas is one of the best and most popular players the club has had [.
It is a noble tradition in football, in England at least, that almost all of the neutral fans will support the under dog, especially in a game like the FA cup final. So you would think that Arsenal fans would be the only people wanting the Gunners to get a victory over Hull City at [...]
Arsene Wenger has taken a lot of stick this season, much of it from the Arsenal fans, for various things. The failure to sign anyone in January, because I am not counting the free loan deal for an injured Kim Kallstrom, was as baffling as a David Lynch film, but the Frenchman has been criticised [...
Mourinho pleading with del Bosque to drop Diego Costa - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Chelsea manager José Mourinho is wanting Diego Costa to be left out of the Spanish national team for their upcoming fixtures next month.
The Brazilian-born striker was on the scoresheet again for Chelsea on Saturday as he scored the second of Chelsea's three goals in their comfortable home win over Aston Villa to keep them top of the Premier League.
Holy smokes, guys. No, not that kind of smokes, Jack Wilshere. Holy smokes, as in: holy smokes the Premier League season kicks off in less than a week. I know last week that I promised some coverage of our preseason friendlies, but that was back when I had lost track..
What a difference a couple of weeks make in football. In that period of time, Chelsea had been linked with moves for three of the World Cup's most coveted midfielders. Now as the World Cup has finished, it's believed that ALL three of those players are not coming to West London!.
That's the thing about the close season with the transfer window being open, there is always plenty of rumours and speculation.
Chelsea finished last season in third place in the Premier League for the second consecutive season, but unlike previous years there was no European glory to wipe away the taste of another disappointing domestic campaign. But did Chelsea improve under the guidance of the Special One last season, or have they been treading water for a couple of season's now?
