Despite missing over three months of the season, Aaron Ramsey is still the second top scorer for Arsenal, with 14 goals in all competitions so far. But listening to Per Mertesacker and his take on this weekend's great win at Hull City, it is clear that our big flippin' German values the defensive side of [.
Hull City 0 v 3 Arsenal Match Report Infographic by allArsenal.com Finally Arsenal produced a routine win thanks to 3 well worked goals that saw off Hull City, providing a nice boost ahead of next months FA Cup final against the Tigers at Wembley. The Gunners got off to a sluggish start and had to [.
This was by no means a foregone conclusion for Arsenal, although the last two games had restored some confidence around the place. But Hull have rolled over some big names at the KC stadium and were on a high of their own after booking their place to face Arsenal at Wembley at the end of [...]
Brace yourself Arsenal fans, some of you are not going to like this. There is a very good chance that OLivier Giroud will still be the Gunners' centre forward next season, especially if he can score a few more goals before the end of the season and especially if he can produce another piece of [...]
Despite me not being the tactical wizard that will give you all the pro's and the con's of a 4-4-2 compared to a 3-5-2 or a 4-5-1 formation I do like to throw a stone in the water from time to time and give you something to think about.
There have been plenty of rumours and lots of speculation among Arsenal fans about the future of Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud this season. Many expect either one or both of the Arsenal front men to be moved on in the summer, but after seeing the two playing with great understanding and effectiveness last night, [.
Arsenal 3 – 1 West Ham Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 6 He didn't have much to do all game other than pick the ball out of the net for the opening goal. He was untroubled because we defensively handled West Ham far better than most expected considering the physicality of Carroll and the [...]
Arsene Wenger made quite a few changes to his Arsenal team, some of them forced on him because the FA cup semi-final exertions. So Kallstrom, Giroud, Rosicky and Koscielny came in for Gibbs, Chamberlain, Sanogo and Ramsey. Arsenal could really have done with a fast start but we didn't really get it, so it looked [.
It wasn't pretty but we got there in the end! by Ash As I am sure you are all aware, unless you have been in a coma, Arsenal have managed to reach the 2014 FA Cup final at Wembley for the 17th May in what will be an inviting encounter whoever the opponent, which looks [...]
Arsenal 1 – 1 Wigan (4-2 Penalties) Player Ratings Fabianski – 9 (MOTM) His performance in the penalty shootout was amazing. He managed to save two of the shots that took so much pressure off us when we took our own penalties. It can't be underrated how vital he was today. During the game, he [..
They say that luck evens itself out over the course of a season. If that is true, Arsenal are due to win the lottery in the next few weeks, because nothing else has gone the way of the Gunners this year. I know that lots of Gooners will berate me for going on about this [...]
Arsenal 2 â€“ 2 Swansea Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny â€“ 6.5 Couldn't do much about either goal. Didn't really have a role in the game and wasn't really forced to make many saves. Sagna â€“ 6.5 Was pretty poor going forward and struggled defensively against Routledge. Mertesacker â€“ 7 Wasn't really at fault for [.
Well, what a rollercoaster that was. Arsenal needed a result tonight, badly, and we nearly got one despite playing badly. Arsene Wenger made an earlier sub than usual, and it was definitely the right move. Lukas Podolski came on to rescue the Gunners with a goal and an assist when we were in serious trouble, [.
Fingers crossed Arsenal fans, because if the Gunners are to win this one and get right back on track in the push for the Premier League title, I feel we may need a little bit of luck and that has been in shockingly short supply so far this season. This is not going to be [...]
It looks like Lukas Podolski is finally set to get a good run of games for Arsenal and a chance to stake his claim for more regular starts in the side. Arsene Wenger pretty much has to play the German striker because there is no one else left to fill the role. 21-year old Ryo [...]
#Arsenal team to play Spurs: Szczesny, Sagna, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Gibbs, Arteta, Rosicky, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Podolski, Cazorla, Giroud Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) March 16, 2014 Our team today: Lloris; Naughton, Kaboul, Vertonghen, Rose; Sandro; Townsend, Bentaleb, Eriksen, Chadli; Adebayor. #COYS Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) March 16, 2014 Tottenham and Arsenal have announced their teams for this afternoon's [.
Podolski's looking forward to the North London derby, are you? by Ash Lukas Podolski is the first Arsenal player to speak out ahead of another critical game for the Gunners this season, this one being the North London derby at Tottenham. Having already beaten the opposition once at the Emirates in the league already this [.
With as many as 10 players being unavailable for Sunday's game at White Hart Lane, the Arsenal boss is facing a bit of a selection headache. One advantage that the Gunners do have is that Tottenham have two days fewer than us to recover and prepare. However, they can also afford to make a few [...]
The question of whether the Arsenal manager has got some sort of problem with the German striker Lukas Podolski has been raised on more than one occasion and has never been successfully answered. It seemed pretty odd that Podolski was hardly used after coming back from a long injury lay-off, especially when Wenger had been [.
Arsenal exit with heads high by Uche Wow! Don't you just wonder what could have been if only Arsenal had a fair chance in the first leg of our game against Bayern? If only..... I am sitting in my living room all alone, with no distractions but the game before me and what was unfolding [...]
Bayern 1 â€“ 1 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Fabianski â€“ 8.5 A great performance by our experienced Polish keeper. He made many saves as well as claiming the ball quickly with any crosses put into our box. He also made one of the best penalty saves I've ever seen. If you haven't seen it, [...]
After the Arsenal manager opted for a very attacking formation away to Bayern Munich, along with the German's record at the Allianz arena, it was not the rip-roaring start you would have expected. The Gunners could not quite get going and Bayern, although strong in possession and pressing Arsenal strongly, did not make too many [.
Arsene Wenger has gone for it. With Arsenal needing some soft of mini football miracle in Munich, I think he has done the right thing to name a very attacking line-up against Bayern Munich. The first goal could be crucial and so the boss is taking risks. If it goes wrong and the Germans score [...]
For some reason that is yet to be explained, Arsene Wenger has chosen to leave Lukas Podolski out in the cold this season, despite the Arsenal Number 9 scoring six goals in just 8 starts for the club this season, and it looks like the 28 year-old will be leaving the Emirates this summer. Well [...]
I am sure that I am not the only Arsenal fan who wants Arsene Wenger to alter his priorities a bit in the next six days. He would normally prioritise the Champions League over the FA cup with games in each coming within three days of each other, but has already hinted that he will [...]
Why Wenger has to take some of the blame for the result against Stoke by KJ This weekend has been terrible if you're an Arsenal fan. All of our rivals won their Premier league matches and we have now slipped down to 3rd (effectively 4th as Man City will most likely win their games in [...]
A lot of Arsenal fans have been left scratching their heads this season as to why Lukas Podolski has not been used more. Of course, the German forward was out for months with a terrible hamstring injury picked up in just the fourth game of the season against Fenerbahce, which was hugely frustrating for him [.
As I write this Arsenal preview, Chelsea are 0-0 and toiling at home to Everton, opening the door for Arsenal to regain their place back on top of the Premier League. Whatever Chelsea and Man City do, though, Arsenal must beat Sunderland at home to really put the doubts of the last few weeks firmly [.
Arsene Wenger has already suggested, in his pre-match press conference for Arsenal vs. Sunderland, that some of the players are getting tired after a punishing schedule of games and that he intends to rotate his squad today. So just who needs a rest and who can Wenger afford to leave out for this must-win Premier [.
Arsenal vs Sunderland preview, line up and predicted score by KJ It was an extremely tiring game for Arsenal midweek against Bayern and this could arguably be one of our worst performances at home this season because of the work we had to put in on Wednesday to keep the score reasonable. That said, we [.
The boys did not lose the match Wenger did by O.A. Good day all Arsenal fans out there, well I have decided write a few things about last night, so please let me know what you think in your comments below. We could see against Bayern Munich that immediately that red card was produced, our [...]
Arsene Wenger has identified one of the major reasons why Arsenal were knocked out of last season's Champions League by tonight's opponents Bayern Munich. Apart from the obvious things like them being a brilliant team that is. The Frenchman is known for worrying more about his own team's preparations than planning specifically for the opponents [.
Hi Gooners. Great result for Arsenal over the weekend. It was so good to see Arsene Wenger change his tactics and play Liverpool against their weaknesses. Even with half of our side being reserves, we had enough pace, direction and stability to overcome a team that thrashed us not too long ago. Fabianski is no [.
When I saw the Arsenal team sheet today, I thought that it would either make Arsene Wenger look like a master tactician or make the Arsenal fans furious for giving up on the FA cup. Sanogo given his debut, Monreal and Jenkinson starting and Fabianski in goal against the same team that battered us just [.
Right Arsenal, beat Liverpool today and not only is the season firmly back on track and the disappointing defeat at Anfield almost forgotten, but the road to Wembley and an FA cup trophy opens up before us. Maybe just as important is a good, strong and competitive performance from the Gunners with a long and [.
Arsenal vs Liverpool Preview, line up and predicted score by KJ This is going to be a very difficult game for Arsenal and comes only a week after losing 5-1 to them at Anfield. They absolutely tore apart our team and we will most likely field a weakened one today as Wenger keeps one eye [...]
Bayern Munich 1 1 Arsenal Match Report Infographic by allArsenal.com A spirited performance from an Arsenal side which deserves a lot of admiration for the way they played. Coming back against the European Champions after a red card and a 2-0 deficit from the first leg was always a lot to ask, but the [.
Arsenal 2 v 1 Liverpool [FA Cup] Match Report Infographic by allArsenal.com The Gunners were perhaps fortunate to take the lead after two clear-cut chances for Liverpool in the opening quarter, however they controlled parts of the game and opted to invite Liverpool onto them, eventually coming out victors thanks to two well taken goals [.
