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 [...
Arsene Wenger has given his open and honest opinion about why Arsenal, who were looking great and had stormed to the top of the table, allowed their best Premier League title challenge in years, to fall away so dramatically. The Prof does not shirk from taking a large slice of the blame cake either. Wenger [.
It might seem strange, given the strained nature of the relationship between Samir Nasri and the Arsenal fans, but the Frenchman will be fully rooting for Arsenal to beat Hull City at Wembley on May 17th and win the FA cup. Why? Because Nasri feels it is the least that Arsene Wenger deserves. The Man [.
You cannot say that Arsenal fans are greedy, despite the fact that we are desperate for some success after nearly nine years without a trophy. And when it comes to the transfer market, the Gooners have been as starved as a fat bloke waiting for an operation. So we have kind of got used to [...]
There seems to be a bit of a love-in going on between Arsenal and Hull City, or between the two managers of the clubs at least. After Arsene Wenger praised Steve Bruce and Tony Pulis in his pre-match press conference, suggesting that either one of them should be up for the Premier League manager of [.
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?
Mourinho claimed he would concede the Premier League title to Liverpool by fielding a weakened side when the two teams face each other on Sunday. A win for Chelsea would still leave them two points behind Brendan Rodgers' men, whereas they go into the semi-final second leg against Atletico Madrid as favourites to make the final.
With Samuel Eto'o left behind, the comments made by Jose Mourinho about Fernando Torres were key and I am wondering if Mourinho plans to start with a "False Nine" again tonight against Atletico Madrid.
Of course Torres could start, so could Demba Ba for that matter but for me with doubts remaining over the match fitness of Eden Hazard, Mourinho could come up with a tactical surprise in the first leg.
Prendono il via questa sera, con la gustosa sfida tra i Colchoneros di Diego Pablo Simeone e i Blues di Josè Mourinho, le semifinali di Champions League. Andata al Vicente Calderon, prima tappa a Madrid (che sar grande palcoscenico domani nello scontro tra titani, tra il Real di Ancelotti e il Bayern dell'ex Barca, Guardiola, [.
Five strikers who could solve Chelsea's forward dilemma - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Over the course of this season Chelsea's midfield has done a sterling job of covering up for the fact that their strike force has woefully under-performed.
Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o have managed to muster just 16 goals in the Premier League between them, a figure that Liverpool's Luis Suarez has achieved almost twice over single-handedly.
The Champions League Semi Final draw takes place this Friday and I am asking if you believe in fate? Just ask any Chelsea fan back on that night in Munich if they did. Forget the fact that there are two ties still to be played this evening to complete the four Champions League semi finalists, Jose Mourinho will be drawn to face Real Madrid as it's destiny.
