Football is a matter of opinions in some ways, even though it is on paper a simple game that is about getting a round bag full of wind into an oversized net, and this is highlighted perfectly by the very different sections of Arsenal fans that have become known as the WOB and the AKBs. [...]
It has not been confirmed officially by Arsenal Football Club yet, but it is being reported that Arsene Wenger has finally made the choice about who to replace the departed Spanish midfielder Mikel Arteta as our club captain. According to The Sun and other football sites the armband has been offered to our giant German [.
It could end up being more than the four Arsenal players who went furthest in the Euro 2016 tournament that Arsene Wenger will have to do without when the Gunners kick off the next Premier League title challenge against Liverpool at the Emirates stadium on August 14th. There is still a question over the ankle [.
Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey will miss Wales semi-final match-up against Cristiano Ronaldo, after starring against Belgium tonight. The Arsenal star picked up his third Man of the Match award for the current tournament, after helping his side to eliminate the Red Devils, who are ranked number 2 in the FIFA World Rankings.
The chances of the Euro 2016 dream going on for Wales and their Arsenal midfield star Aaron Ramsey took a big boost today, with the BBC reporting that the Tottenham and Belgium defender Jan Vertonghen picked up an injury in training and will miss the game and the rest of the tournament. And while it [.
Aaron Ramsey is set to be promoted to captain of his Wales side for the upcoming quarter-final match against Belgium. Ashley Williams started the competition wearing the armband for Wales, but looks likely to miss out on the crucial match with the Red Devils due to injury. The Swansea captain collided with fellow team-mate Jonny [.
I have to think that Arsene Wenger was having a little bit of fun with the football media this week, as he spoke about some recent Arsenal transfer rumours. The Frenchman was being asked about the Jamie Vardy saga after the England international striker opted to stay at Leicester City and sign a contract extension [.
The European Championships restarts again today after two days off, with the first knock-our round set to begin at 3PM local time (2PM GMT). Arsenal have a number of players still involved in the tournament, with a number holding reserved confidence in going deep into the competition. One Gunner who could go deep despite a [.
Following a dramatic and exciting last day of group games at Euro 2016, we all have a few days without football before the serious business of the knockout stage begins, so I thought it might be worth a look back over the tournament so far, with a firm eye on how the various Arsenal players [...]
England are desperate to snatch a win against Wales today, in order to get their title bid back on target, but the points wont come easy. Arsenal stars Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey could be set to go head-to-head in midfield tomorrow, should the Gunners youth product get called into the first team, and this [.
England take on Wales in a must-win game on Thursday, and we thought we'd run a competition to give you furtherinterest in the crunch match. BulgarBoy was the winner of Saturday's entry, being the only person to correctly pick that painful 1-1 final scoreline, and this lucky reader will need to email us with his [.
The Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey was on Cloud Nine when he gave a lucky assist for Wales winning goal against Slovakia yesterday. They now top the Group after England and Russia drew in the later game, and now a win against the Three Lions will ensure their passage to the knockout stages. Now the Gunners [.
It already feels like ages since we have seen Arsenal in action, even though it was less than a month ago when the Gunners enjoyed a fantastic final day with our win over Aston Villa helping Arsenal to continue the long run of finishing above Tottenham. And while it is still a while before the [...]
There are probably not many Arsenal fans that would agree with the above statement, as apart from one half season when the Welshman was world-class, he has regressed to being a run-of-the-mill workhorse once again. But, according to his manager at Wales, Chris Coleman, the 25 year-old is an absolute genius!
Aaron Ramsey has talked up a switch to La Liga in the future, but how much effect would his exit have on Arsenal? The Welshman has been in-and-out of the first-team this season, and is now outside my preferred XI, following the emergence of Alex Owobi from the youth side. Barcelona have been continually linked [.
Aaron was considered to be a budding supertalent when Arsenal beat Man United to his signature all those years ago, but now he is considered to be yet another Arsenal prodigy that has failed to live up to expectations. He excelled in one season for the Gunners and despite his recent mediocre form, Arsene Wenger [.
Does Xhaka signing mean Ramsey's days are numbered? It's such an amazing feeling to have a new signing tied up so early in the transfer window. Xhaka became the third most expensive player in Arsenal history after this week's announcement. Having spent so much money to sign him, he is undoubtedly going to be first [.
You can feel the disappointment from most Arsenal fans that we didn't win this years Premier League title, but there is no doubt that there has been many highs and lows over the campaign. There has also been some extremely entertaining games, Olympiakos away anyone? Or Man United at home?, and some desperately depressing for [.
This is a game to get the blood coursing through the veins. It is almost winner takes all and possibly our most important game of the season (huge exaggeration but you get the drift!).
If I am honest I am not optimistic. I know we won there last season, I know City have just lost an important game, I know that they have a few injuries and those who are fit are misfiring and for City this could be "After the Lord Mayor's Show" .
Apart from the Arsenal and England international star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and the giant German defender Per Mertesacker, Arsene Wenger has a full squad of players to choose from as he prepares Arsenal for the Premier League away game at Man City. With Man United's win over Norwich ensuring that Arsenal still need points from our [.
While a lot of the talk ahead this Premier League match has been about the protests planned by three different Arsenal fan groups, the comments about this from Arsene Wenger and the debate about the manager, the board and the owner Stan Kroenke and who is to blame for our problems, the Gunners do have [.
Arsene Wenger revealed yesterday that, although Santi Cazorla and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are not exactly 100 percent match fit after coming back off the injury list, he does have the full squad of Arsenal players to choose from. The fact that this is the first game this season when he has been able to say that [.
Arsenal's days of allowing our big players to leave and join rivals is over as far as I'm concerned, but with a number of underachieving players linked with exits, I urge the club not to sell toany close rivals. Pep Guardiola has today been linked with a move to sign Theo Walcott this summer, but [.
We have all heard from players, including a wide number of Arsenal stars, after a poor performance or result that they have let the manager and the fans down. I have said it myself a number of times when trying to defend Arsene Wenger after a disappointment that it is not as if he sends [...]
Arsenal need all three points from the trip north to face Sam Allardyce and his Sunderland side today, in order to go back above Man City into third place. A point would not be a disaster as it would put us five points ahead of the Champions League chasing Manchester United, but to avoid a [...]
Well that was pretty easy to pick which of the Arsenal players performed best in our reasonably easy 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion last night, as not only did Alexis Sanchez score both of the goals but his bustling drive gave a much needed lift to the flat atmosphere inside the ground and offered [.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger today revealed that he is not looking to make major changes to his current squad before the new campagn, so we thought we'd look at the latest possible arrivals. Borussia Dortmund's Ilkay Gundogan is one of the players most heavily linked with a switch to a number of clubs, butis now [.
There have been loads of Arsenal transfer rumours lately that Arsene Wenger is going to have a clear out of underperforming Gunners this summer, in a final bid to win the Premiership in the last year of his current contract. To be honest it sounds very unlike Wenger as his favourite words are usually cohesion [.
Arsenal could be set to offload a number of key squad members this summer,while Dan Crowley is said toset for promotion to the senior squad. The DailyMail is claiming that 18 year-old Crowley could be set for a rapid rise into the first-team squad, having been sniped from Aston Villa's academy.
Arsene Wenger really is keen to stick to the winning formula that Arsenal have found either side of the recent international break, because despite him being fit enough for the squad last week and this week, the vastly experienced keeper Petr Cech has been left on the bench by the manager who has kept faith [.
I know that every single game is now a must-win fixture for Arsenal, but Saturday's visit to Upton Park is even more important that that! A win will not only keep us ahead of the chasing pack (which includes the Hammers) but will also keep us in the hunt for the title if Leicester start [...]

It may just be that the Arsenal injury list and the form of some of the Gunners who are fit have all but given Arsene Wenger no choice in his team selection recently. It will certainly be interesting to see what happens if and when Aaron Ramsey is fit again, which could be as soon [...]
The post Arsenal copying Leicester and Spurs to keep title race going?
So the Arsenal boss gave another of his many positive injury predictions before the current international break, and I seem to recall the Frenchman saying that at least two of the first team players currently on the Arsenal injury list would be back in action after the break and I am pretty sure the word [.
If things go the right way for Arsenal from now until the middlw of May, then Arsene Wenger and the players will have eight 'cup-finals' with which to save the season from being a disappointment or an unmitigated disaster depending on the strength of your views. It may be that Leicester and Tottenham, or one [.
Arsenal fans are more than used to seeing our injured stars taking ten times longer to recover than their predicted return dates, especially with Jack Wilshere who has been projected to return every month since Christmas, but the Gunners were certainly expecting our injury list to be reduced after this international break.
Aaron Ramsey is currently out injured, but Chris Coleman is determined to take him to the European Championships this summer. The midfielder has proved to be one of the key men in Wales international side, helping them to qualify for the upcoming tournament with two goals and two assists in the group stages.
In our quest for a third FA Cup trophy in a row, Arsenal have to eliminate Watford today at the Emirates, and we are hoping that the team is as clinical as they were against Hull City in midweek. In central midfield we saw Elneny and Flamini holding the fort, and our new boy was [...]
The post Arsenal to start with Elneny alongside Coquelin appeared first on Just Arsenal News.
Thanks for the memories Arsene but it's time to say goodbye! by KM I am so happy! And no, it's not because we won 4:0, which would usually be quite nice, but because the Arsenal fans who attended the game made me proud. After the game, a banner which was last seen in an away [...]
The Arsenal injury curse struck once more last night as Arsene Wenger saw no fewer than four Gunners join the already damaging injury list. Losing the three defenders Gabriel, Mertesacker and Monreal in one game just about sums up our luck and gives the boss a real problem for the FA cup quarter final against [.
Of course it would have been the target for Arsenal to come back from White Hart Lane with all three points and after a great start and taking the lead against Tottenham in the north London derby then there are bound to be some regrets, especially from the defensive midfielder Francis Coquelin who admitted that [.
