Both Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker spoke about how the precarious position that the club will be in as we head into final game of the Champions League group phase. There are no gray areas and the fact that Arsenal have a clear and unequivocal task ahead, they believe, could help us [.
Nice! We run onto a huge Xmas period of tough games! by Koss Now that Arsenal have given themselves a good chance of qualifying into the last 16 of the UCL, after a disastrous start by losing our first 2 games in the competition, I think some of us are still nervously assuming that we [...]
It was a big plus point for Arsenal fans to hear this week that Aaron Ramsey was back in training after an injury lay off and Arsene Wenger had no hesitation in putting the name of the Wales international midfielder straight in to the match day squad, although Ramsey did not start but came one [...]
Arsenal fans with good memories are all too well aware of some of the club's more repetitive problems, although to be honest they do keep happening to keep this sort of thing nice and fresh in the minds of your average Gooner. And of course we always have those friendly faces in the football media [.
To be perfectly honest I would not have been all that surprised if Arsenal had fluffed their lines in the Champions League clash with Dinamo Zagreb, or at the very least made hard work of beating the Croatian team. We have had a bit of a hard time of it lately with injury problems mounting [...]
Some Arsenal fans might be expecting Arsene Wenger to rest one or two key players today, with the recent injury picked up by Aaron Ramsey bringing to our minds the risk of this with most of the Arsenal first team having played almost every Premier League and Champions League game as well as the international [.
There is finally some action for Arsenal as the summer transfer window starts collecting glasses and shouting drink up please, it's time. But this transfer action is not really what we want to see, as it sees a player leaving Arsenal rather than one coming in. The report in the Daily Mail reveals that the [.
Arsenal are resigned to losing THE Polish keeper Lukasz Fabianski as his contract expires this summer, and finding the proper replacement could be one of the most important bits of business that Arsene Wenger does in this transfer window. The latest player linked is John Ruddy and I think he could be the perfect choice.
It would have been very easy for the Arsenal players to slacken off once they knew that fourth place in the Premier League was secured. They all knew how important it was, for the club and the fans, as well as it being where every player wants to be. So the Wenger trophy was safe, [...]

The Arsenal players, like Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud, have been saying all the right things this week about not taking their foot off the gas. They are keen to finish the Premier League season strongly in order to keep the confidence building and the results rolling into next weekend, when the Gunners have a [.
Okay everyone it is Arsenal's last game of the season so we will get the competition up early so to give every a chance to enter. I was shocked to find that no-one had predicted the 1-0 win over West Brom last week, so this week I am going to give EVERYONE that gets tomorrows [...]
Possible Arsenal starting lineup against Norwich - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
We're into the final game of the Barclays Premier League season. Apart from one certain title battle that is yet to be decided, rest is all settled. Arsenal have once again secured the Champions League qualification spot (bad luck Roberto and Everton!
Arsene Wenger has just one Premier League game left before the big one. I/m sure that the Frenchman already has a pretty good idea of his Arsenal starting line-up to run out at Wembley and try to finally add to that FA cup the Gunners won in 2005, but there will be some players hoping [...]
West Bromwich Albion are mathematically not safe yet for another Premier League season, while Arsenal have confirmed a UEFA Champions League spot after Everton's defeat yesterday, so you would expect the Baggies to give it their all today at the Emirates Stadium in the first match of the day.
In team news, Abou Diaby makes his first return to an Arsenal squad is more than 13 months, with an appearance on the bench.
Here we go then! It's almost finish line time but already the runners are breaking away. Relegated? Yes, unless the technicality around ineligibility comes back to bite Sunderland: bringing Norwich and friends back into the fold.
The second coming? Giggs might not be so sure anymore...
At the top of the table, City pull back into poll position whilst Chelsea find themselves held by the desperate Norwich.
Chelsea take on Norwich at Stamford Bridge this afternoon and after Manchester City beat Everton, three points is all that matters!
We have to keep the pressure up on our rivals. A win takes Chelsea top before Liverpool travel to Crystal Palace tomorrow night. Anything less would be deemed as a disaster as I still believe we won't win the league, but it's important to finish second.
Liverpool welcome Carlisle Utd to Anfield in The Capital One Cup on Wednesday night hoping to finally get a win under their belts.
The games coming thick and fast now, its important to shuffle the pack. With a stronger squad this Season, under pressure Manager Brendan Rodgers will put out a team that is capable of winning without using all our star names.
I wrote this match review almost four years ago. It wasn't any better then. An already frustrating season, a bunch of shots but just one goal, a keeper error equalizer around the hour mark, an inability to reclaim the lead despite 30 minutes of pressure.

So, the final day of the Premier League season is here, and there's something missing. Oh yeah, it's the dread gnawing at my innards as we face the prospect of missing out on a top four spot to Sp*rs, of all people.
I have to admit, despite this season not ending up as well as I would have liked, on this point alone I'm pretty comfortable with today's scenario.
Well, I was looking forward to Arsene's final press conference of the Premier League season today, but they only went and had it yesterday. Talk about messing with people's schedules that exist only in their minds.
It's hard to believe that the league season is almost done. It has flown by, for me at least.
After a week he himself described as"a whirlwind", Ryan Giggs took charge of his first game as Manchester United interim manager, following the sacking of David Moyes on Tuesday, and got his managerial career off to the best of starts, as United swept Norwich aside with a convincing 4-0 win.
While the Canaries might not have been the toughest of tests for Giggs' team (admittedly, that has a wonderful ring to it), there were some positives signs after a season of doom and gloom.
Wayne Rooney yesterday said that Ryan Giggs has all the credentials to become a Manchester United manager, adding that the way the Welshman has handled himself since being appointed interim manager at Old Trafford makes him look like he's "built" for the job.
Giggs' managerial career got off to a winning start as United trounced Norwich 4-0, producing the sort of performance that they seemed incapable to deliver under David Moyes.

First of all, let us get the matter of the match-up against West Bromwich's Finest Albion, loveable plucky whipping boys of the English League, sponsored by ‘Kick Me' and perfectly positioned above the bottom three to pose no obvious threat. Really, we should have put five or six past a team of this ‘quality', but the whole game had the air of end-of-term games lesson about it.
With one Premier League game of the season left, it is a case of better late than never for Arsenal. After a couple of months out of action, Jack Wilshere is fit again and likely to feature against Norwich City at Carrow Road on Sunday. You have to wonder if things would have been different [...]
