As I see it by WC Last year Arsene Wenger took the Arsenal team to Stamford Bridge hoping to make a landmark celebration. What followed were many sleepless nights of anguish and misery. The Bridge had indeed confirmed its status as a theatre of horrors for him.. On Wednesday he took his team to Anderlecht [.
Arsenal: What would be the preferable starting XI against Sunderland? by SE Arsenal, for all the struggles they have endured in the Premier League so far, have done well to pick up 6 points out of 6 in their last two Champions League fixtures against Galatasaray and Anderlecht. That last gasp win on Wednesday night [.
Because of all the injury problems Arsenal have been beset with recently, including to Mesut Ozil and young Serge Gnabry, the Gunners have just two Germans in the match day squads at the minute. Both Lukas Podolski and Per Mertesacker were involved in that unlikely last minute win over Anderlecht, with the striker scoring the [.
I am not even going to try to claim that the two late goals which won the Champions League game against Anderlecht in Brussels last night were just rewards for the team's efforts. For most of the match, the Gunners just could not make things happen, even though we did control the ball for large [...]

Arsenal needed to get off to a good start, with our Belgian opponents Anderlecht having their own problems with injuries, form and recent results. This game offered the Gunners a great chance to claim a morale boosting win and keep the hopes of winning the group alive. But we started porly, giving the ball away [.
Arsenal are back on top of the table. The table of Premier League players on the injury list that is, according to physioroom.com. And the nine Arsenal players that they list as being out of action does not include Theo Walcott and Serge Gnabry who are just back in training from long spells and wil [.
It is vital that Arsene Wenger gets Arsenal off to a winning start when club football gets back underway after this current round of international friendly games and Euro qualifiers are finished. And the Gunners have a great chance to get our season up and running properly because the Premier League game on Saturday is [.
There are three Arsenal players, at least, that will return to north London after this international break a little disappointed about their lack of play for their respective countries. And it could work in the Gunners' favour if it makes Lukas Podolski, Santi Cazorla and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain realise that the best way to remedy the [.
In one of the latest Arsenal transfer rumours, it is being reported that Arsene Wenger is preparing to go back to Germany in January to sign the young Schalke star Julian Draxler. The Gunners were strongly tipped to sign the talented 20-year old in the summer, but concerns over the fitness issues that saw him [.
The German international Lukas Podolski arrived with a fanfare in the summer of 2012, but for some reason (only known to Arsene Wenger I am sure) he has never been able to get a regular starting spot unless injuries have forced him into the team. In two full seasons he has only made 39 starts [...]
Arsenal have been linked with the Germany international forward Marco Reus for some time now, but the 25-year old star has a contract with his Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund until 2017 and, as far as I know, there is no release clause included in it. However, according to a Daily Express report, there will be [.
By 1970's Gooner What a terrible performance against Soton. A terrible performance from the experienced and hungry for games older players. Rosicky was all over the place and Podolski was not in any place. Rosicky, whom I rate highly, was more often than not passing to the opponents. He gave a totally unnecessary penalty which brought them back into the game.
Arsenal 1 – 2 Southampton Player Ratings by KJ Ospina – 6 He didn't look great tonight. Seemed shaky at times and should've done better for Southampton's second goal. It was a ferocious shot but it was straight down the middle. Bellerin – 6 A decent performance. It was much better than the one against [.
The Players Arsenal Seem to have Forgotten About this Season! by AT It is not very hard to see right now that Arsenal's defence is being stretched to the limit, even more so now that Mathieu Debuchy is set to miss the next three months of the campaign as a result of the ankle injury [...]
Forget all the media talk, Arsenal fans, that wants to suggest that the reason the Gunners beat Aston Villa yesterday was some mystery virus. Apparently that meant Paul Lambert had to without six of his Villa players. Boo hoo and all that, but Arsene Wenger had no less than seven of the Arsenal squad unavailable [.
5 Premier League Stars In Danger Of Fizzling Out - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
The transfer window may have closed but that doesn't mean that all managers, nor all players are currently happy with their current squad, or position within that squad. Indeed, a quick glance down the squads of the Premier League's top teams reveals a number of players who look to be down, if not out, at their current club.
It is far from being an ideal situation for Arsenal in the Champions League play-off tonight. We simply need to beat Besiktas in the second leg at the Emirates tonight, but the injury to Olivier Giroud has left Arsene Wenger in a very tricky situation. Because of the World Cup and injuries disrupting our pre-season [.
The Arsenal Chap Diaries Is now the time for Podolski? There had been indecision about where to play Lukas Podolski, indecision about his application and now indecision on whether he will stay at the Emirates Stadium. This has been the story for the World Cup winning German so far. That is until today, when [.
With some Arsenal players still not looking quite ready after the World Cup finals this summer, the three German Gunners still to be included in a squad after an extended summer holiday and a slightly worrying injury list, Arsene Wenger is probably already looking forwards to the two week international break in order for him [.
Without some of our best players and with a fair few of the others looking a couple of weeks off being fully match sharp, Arsenal have had a pretty decent start to the season, and according to one of the new boys, Mathieu Debuchy, you ain't seen nothing yet. The France international right back, signed [.
Yo! I know you guys are just as excited as I am that the Premier League has started. However, I've noticed that there's still something missing from Arsenal's game since van Persie left. And that is scoring from dead balls. When there was a free kick back in the day, I always thought, "no problem [..
We should look to keep Podolski by KJ There are rumours flying about today from Turkey that Galatasaray have sent a delegation to London to discuss the transfer of the Arsenal winger Lukas Podolski. He's struggled for game time at the club simply because he's outclassed by our other wide options but even then, I'm [.
It was great for Arsenal to have three players in the team that won the World Cup in Brazil, but there is also the downside of Arsene Wenger having to wait to get that trio of first team players back into pre-season training. But supposedly, it could not be helped because FIFA guidelines state that [.
Could the absence of German trio be a blessing in disguise? by Blaz Wenger said yesterday he will probably rest Arsenal's World cup winning trio of Germans for the first game of the season against Crystal Palace. That also means we will not have their support in Community Shield. We are more than capable of [.
It was just a week or so ago that Arsene Wenger was talking about the possible boost he hoped that Arsenal would get from having three of the World Cup winning Germany team in his squad, although the Prof did also claim that their extended break after the tournament in Brazil would somewhat hamper their [.
Although having three Arsenal players still involved in the World Cup final between Germany and Argentina at the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro will slightly hamper their pre-season preparations, the manager Arsene Wenger feels that the club will actually benefit from Germany winning the famous trophy.
Players who could find themselves in the Arsenal fringes next season by SE Alexis Sanchez moving from Nou Camp to the Emirates could bring about colossal changes in the way Arsenal setup this upcoming season. The Chilean can play as a right-winger, left-winger and even up top as the central striker. The problem is that [.
Arsenal's German Connection by Big Gun Hi Gooners It has been a while since I last posted. I just want to start off by saying thanks to the Admin for keeping this site the NO1 place to be when you are not either watching the Gunners live or on the tele. Also, lots of respect [...]
Özil, Mertesacker and Podolski won't return to Arsenal until the season begins by KJ With Germany winning their game against Brazil (emphatically I might add) securing their place in the final of the World Cup, it now means that our three Germans in Brazil will most likely take no part in preseason and might even [.
The Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker has been left out of the Germany starting XI again for their World Cup semi-final against Brazil. Maybe this should be a concern for Arsenal fans as well as the BFG himself. We have always known that Per was not the quickest over the ground, but has made up for [.
Well, Gooners, the only Arsenal players still involved in the World Cup finals in Brazil are the German trio of Lukas Podolski, Per Mertesacker and Mesut Ozil. Does that make us Arsenal fans honorary Germans now? I will certainly be supporting them more than usual and they are certainly an easier team to support than [.
It looks like the awful run of luck that Arsenal had with injuries last season has carried over in to the World Cup finals in Brazil, as yet another Gunner has picked up a problem that could jeopardise their role at the tournament. This will surely be a worry to Arsenal fans, not just about [...]
It has been source of some concern, speculation and disagreement among Arsenal fans since the Germany international Lukas Podolski signed for the Gunners from Cologne two years ago. It was a transfer that had us all excited at the start and the Prince has certainly given us some great moments since his move, but it [.
Arsenal need to keep the squad together by AT We are essentially half way through the World Cup now and it will soon finish, meaning certain players will be joining the club and there could be some outgoings at Arsenal as well. But I think that moving too many players out could be massively detrimental [.
Arsene Wenger has had a few key decisions to make over the last few days, but most of them are about how to ensure that Arsenal are stronger defensively than we have been of late. The attacking and creating side of the game has been pretty much okay, but we need to have that solid [...]
Unless there is a problem with the Arsenal and Germany international striker Lukas Podolski, it looks like his time at the club could be up because, not only does Arsene Wenger leave him out of the starting line up once again for the visit of Hull City, Podolski does not even make the bench. After [.
