I am not sure if the Arsenal and England international forward Theo Walcott is worried about getting his place back in the starting line-up for the Gunners, but the 25-year old is going to have to show Arsene Wenger some good form in training if he is to force his way into an Arsenal attacking [...]
The final Champions League game this week gave Arsene Wenger a great chance to rest a few of his overworked Arsenal players because there was little riding on the result. So with the festive period about to provide a stern test of the Gunners squad, with six games in the space of three weeks, the [..
Lukas Podolski has made no secret of the fact that he is unhappy with being on the bench at Arsenal for nearly half the season, but he was given a great opportunity last night to show why Wenger should not be ignoring him. He played the full 90 minutes for only the second time this [...]
Wenger proved me wrong! by SW All of us that love and follow Arsenal, will (at least at times) disagree, and even get irate at our manager and leader Wenger. Like a few others here, I've been cursing our defence. And I've been mad that we were playing Monreal in central defence, when we could [...]
Arsenal could not have asked for a better start in Turkey. With a second string side out, including some players like Bellerin in unfamiliar positions and some like Podolski and Campbell with hardly any minutes on the pitch, fierce home crowd and a Galatasaray team playing for pride and a new manager, it could have [.
Arsenal Must Mass Clear Average Players and Sign World Class Now! by Nikko When Arsene Wenger arrived at Arsenal, good football arrived. It was not just positive football but also trophies and for the first time Arsenal become a regular competitor at the highest level in England and Europe. His first few years in charge [.
Despite Arsenal being extremely short on bodies to help with squad rotation, we are hardly going to miss a player that has played about just 25 minutes all season (except for the League Cup game against Southampton where he was anonymous. So it makes sense for Wenger to get Lukas Podolski off the payroll as [.
Wenger will not win the title in 10 years, not 3 by KM Sorry for the long post, but the reasons for Arsenal's situation are more complex than just one factor. Arsene Wenger came out with some pretty ridiculous statements about winning the Premier League title in 3 years. I mean, we all enjoy a [...]
There is a never-ending supply of Arsenal transfer rumours linking the Gunners with Borussia Dortmund's Marcus Reus, despite the amount of quality midfielders already in Arsene Wenger's squad. Reus has a contract with Dortmund until 2017, but a release clause of just 25 million euros means that there will be interest from most top Premier [.
All Arsenal fans are aware that Arsene Wenger gave Mesut Ozil and Lukas Podolski extra time off in the summer to recover from their exertions of winning the World Cup, but even with that break it seems that neither have fully recovered their fitness or form. Although Ozil managed to start six games before succumbing [.
Lukas Podolski is using his time with the German national team to get some proper playing time on the pitch, and also to voice his displeasure at being left on the sidelines with Arsenal. Now that he has been backed up by the Germany manager Joachim Low, Podolski has made it even clearer that he [...
It seems obvious to most Arsenal fans that Arsene Wenger does not like Lukas Podolski as a player, because no matter how many injuries the Gunners have, or how out of form his selections are, as he still refuses to play the German winger. Podolski himself said the other day that he need to talk [...]
Most of the Arsenal players (the uninjured ones anyway!) are now away on international duty, and Lukas Podolski was the first to tell his country's press that he didn't understand why Arsene Wenger rarely played the German frontman, despite the overwhelming injury problems at the club. Now we have Thomas Rosicky also expressing his frustration [.
Social media is a part of the modern world now, with footballers using sites like Twitter just as much as anyone else, and why shouldn't they? But we keep seeing problems cropping up, especially when clubs decide to host question and answer sessions with their players. You might as well just invite the fans of [.
Has Wenger finally struck gold? By Twig This season, we've witnessed a lot of experimentation with the Arsenal lineup, ranging from the trusted 4-2-3-1 to the much-hated 4-1-4-1. One of the main reason for this is the fact that we have too many similar central midfielders, and as Wenger admitted, when everyone is fit, it's [.
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 [...]

Match of the Round- Anderlecht vs Arsenal 1-2 Highlights 2014 Champions Gibbs Podolski Goals Video is a post from Soccer Blogger. Follow Soccer Blogger on Twitter Arsenal literally snatch victory at the death against Anderlecht in Belgium in this CL clash on 22nd October, 2014.
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 [.
Arsene Wenger had already let it be known that a number ofArsenal first team players like Alexis Sanchez, Laurent Koscielny, Danny Welbeck and Kieran Gibbs would be left in London to recover and recharge their batteries for the Premier League games to come. And with six young players from the academy system going in their [.
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 [.
