The curious case of Giroud by Big Gun Dear Gooners, last night's Arsenal game was disappointing, not only because we lost, but because we seemed very lethargic and lacked any sort of drive to get 3 points. Our Champions League future is more uncertain now as we will most likely draw tougher opposition than we [.

But, something that has rarely been mentioned is that for the most part, we have done it without [.
After his two goals gave Arsenal an important win over Premier League high flyers Southampton on Saturday, Oliver Giroud is certainly the man of the moment, but not many people would give the Frenchman the honour of the best player at the club. But that is just what his team mate Jack Wilshere thinks, according [.
Olivier Giroud was starting to be heavily criticised again by Arsenal fans and so-called football experts, because he had gone off the boil a bit and had struggled to have an effect against Manchester United at Old Trafford. But the big Frenchman got back on the scoresheet yesterday, with both goals in an important win [.
It has been a worrying start to the season for Arsenal fans, apart from the brilliant performances and results that is, because the club has had to cope with an almost unbelievable injury list.

Firing on all cylinders by Blaz Almost a third of the season is already behind us and Arsenal Football Club hasn't had things easy when it comes to injuries. It started with the first game of the season and it has continued with every game we played. So a couple of players have only played [...]
I really cannot remember Arsenal, or any team for that matter, having so many players on the sidelines through injury right from the start of the season. We have had Vermaelen, Monreal, Sagna, Arteta, Wilshire, Rosicky, Walcott, Podolski, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Sanogo, Ryo, Zelalem and Diaby out for various reasons already in this campaign.
It looks as if Arsenal's German core of Lukas Podolski, Per Mertesacker, and Mesut Ozil are all aboard the Emirates Air Line in London - that is the cable car service that takes passengers across the River Thames from Greenwich Peninsula to the Royal Docks.
Podolski posted the below photo on Thursday evening with his German teammates all wearing Arsenal's tracksuit top, which implies that the trio were possibly making an appearance of sorts for the North London club.
Wenger had to sign a striker in summer by Dave N I am absolutely furious.

After Arsenal carried on their fine form against Norwich, scoring four goals, two of which could make it into the Goal of the Month pick, you would think that the Gunners had done enough to silence the doubters and convinvce people that this is not a blip. We may not be favourites for the Premier [..
Arsenal will be gunning for glory! by Ash Arsene Wenger isn't usually someone for optimism when it comes to being praised so early on in a season and it's because he very well knows, with several years of experience, how the game of football can change in an instant, as can a club's entire season. [.
Chamberlain could have a massive impact for us. by KJ Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Arsenal from Southampton in the summer of 2011 with loads of people questioning Arsene Wenger as to why he'd spend so much money on a 17 year old.

As you may know, the mighty Arsenal are happily sitting on top of the Premier League and leading in the Champions League group ahead of Borussia Dortmund, Napoli and Marseille.

There are some players who we hear about needing to keep a certain edge of aggression in order to perform at their best. At Arsenal, you could possibly include Jack Wilshere and Mathieu Flamini in that category, while former captain Patrick Vieira loved a good battle to fire him up. However, there are other players, [.

Do we need a little bit of Hernandez? by Ash Arsenal have been doing perfectly well up front so far this season and we have certainly scored plenty of goals, most of which have actually come from midfield with Aaron Ramsey.

Arsenal been struggling with injuries since the start of the season, but oddly enough, many of the players returning, like Vermaelen and Cazorla, have not really had much of an impact.

One of the few benefits of downing tools for weeks on end, as I am increasingly doing, is the ability to view things in splendid hindsight.
