Will Ramsey's return bring about a change in Arsenal's fortunes? by SE Aaron Ramsey returned to action for Arsenal during the 2-2 home draw against Hull City last weekend. The Welshman came on as a 62nd minute sub for Mathieu Flamini, as the North Londoners went in search of an equalizer. Ramsey completed 82% of [.
Arsenal may be wracked by injuries and are languishing 11 points behind Chelsea in the Premiership table, but the Welsh wizard Aaron Ramsey still believes that the Gunners, strengthened by our new arrivals, can add to last years FA Cup win by taking more trophies this season. Ramsey was quoted in the Express as saying: [.
It was surely no surprise to Arsenal fans when Jack Wilshere fouled Hull City's Gaston Ramirez after about an hour on Saturday and even less of a surprise that the referee showed him a yellow card for the challenge. Because that is unfortunately a part of the England midfielders game and the fact that it [.
The good news for Arsenal is that Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta are now back to fitness and should figure in the squad, but the loss of Laurent Koscielny and Thomas Rosicky (not to mention Ozil!) after the international break has put a bit of a damper on the celebrations. With the long-term [.
Arsenal 2 – 2 Hull City Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 5 Didn't have anything to do aside from pick the ball out of the net for the two times Hull scored. Bellerin – 7 One of the only real positives out of today. He struggled at times but showed a lot of drive [...]
With the international break seeming to have further devastated the Arsenal squad with more injuries to players, there was inevitably going to be questions asked about what is going on with the fitness and medical areas of the club. But the latest injury update from Arsene Wenger, reported by Arsenal.
With Arsenal sitting in a lowly 8th position in the Premier League table and with us playing catch up to Borussia Dortmund in our Champions League group and having been knocked out of the Capital One Cup by Southampton, you might think it strange for me to say that Arsenal have excelled at anything so [.
I am no fortune teller and I am not a medium, (I'm a large!), but I am fairly confident in predicting that Arsenal will not win the Premier League title this season. Not that I am one of the fans panicking about our slow start and losing to Chelsea, I just think that It looks [...]
Wilshere This, Wilshere That – What to do With This Talented Starlet? by NikkoGunners Most Arsenal fans nowadays read the team sheet looking for one name – Is Wilshere playing or is he not? Second question quickly is what does that mean for other talents in the Squad? Clearly Wilshere is a massively talented young [.
Arsene Wenger will be working hard on the training field over the next two weeks with the Arsenal players that have not gone away on international duty. And, of course, he will be hoping that the Gunners' bad luck with injuries stays away so that he can get on with the season with an almost [...]
With a sudden injury crisis hitting Arsenal in the central midfield area like an unexpected punch in the stomach, I was hoping that Arsene Wenger would be able to call on our France international Abou Diaby, as the long legged Frenchman continues on the road to resurrecting his Arsenal career. But in the latest team [.
There is some great news for Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger today, as Jack Wilshere took part in the training session at London Colney, as reported by ESPN, to prove that fears that his turn of an ankle in the north London derby on Saturday would leave him on the sidelines with our captain Mikel [...
When we saw the Arsenal team sheet for the Capital One Cup game against Southampton last week, we knew that the Gunners would be up against it with the Saints having a great start to the season and able to pick more of their first choice players. But we understood. After all the problems Arsenal [...
I am not just writing this article because Arsenal have a central midfield crisis on our hands, with injuries and fitness issues making it appear that we could have no Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey, Abou Diaby or Mikel Arteta available for the next two very important games against Galatasaray. But it does highlight the fact [.
It is not really going too far to say that Arsenal v Galatasaray on Wednesday night is a must win game for the Gunners, at least if we are to keep our hopes alive of actually winning our UCL group this time and avoiding the likes of Bayern Munich and Barcelona in the first knockout [...]
It was a frustrating north London derby for Arsenal in many ways, but it could have been much worse, especially after Tottenham took the lead against the run of play. The visitors certainly put up a sterling effort to stop us from scoring, so finding a leveller took a great deal of desire and determination.
It seems a long time ago now that we started to hear about the Arsenal and England forward Theo Walcott getting back into training. There were little videos released of him in the gym doing leg squats as long ago as June and then we kept getting very positive sounding reports on his road to [...]
Aston Villa 0 – 3 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 7 He didn't have much to do all game except for a very smart save in the first half. Chambers – 7.5 I felt he was pretty good today and he's so composed on the ball. If only we'd brought in another centre [...]
Well it was a much better start from Arsenal. As expected, Aston Villa started with a high tempo and tried to put us under serious pressure, which paid such dividends for Borussia Dortmund in the week. But the Arsenal players did not crumble under it this time and managed to pass and play our way [..
It is never nice to lose a game of football, and Arsenal fans are desperate for the Gunners not to lose this one today at Aston Villa. But the manner of a defeat, or a disappointing draw, is often as important to the fans. If you play badly and win, nobody really cares and people [...]
Aston Villa vs Arsenal Preview, Line up and predicted score by KJ Arsenal have had a very rough start to the season, with only one win in the league and being completely outclassed by Dortmund on Tuesday. The fans are looking for a response by the players and Villa away is a good opportunity regardless [.
Is Dortmund an ‘Aston Villa' Awakening for Arsenal? by NikkoGunners Borrusia Dortmund did not just score two goals against Arsenal. They out-played, out-thought, out-shot, out-possesed and out-everything Arsenal on that Tuesday night. The only consolation that night was that there was no winner in the other match between Monaco and Galatasaray.
Arsene Wenger takes his battered and beleagured Arsenal team to Birmingham on Saturday for the Premier League clash with Aston Villa. And after what happened in Germany against Borussia Dortmund, on top of a pretty average start to the season, this game has taken on great importance. I have seen people suggesting that the change [.
Arsenal played Dortmund away on Matchday 1 of this season's Champions League, looking to pick up a point or three, after drawing three successive games in the Premier League. The Gunners, however, struggled to live up to the high pressing and high tempo game plan from their German opponents and, had it not been for [.
The next two days could turn out to be the most important of the season for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger.

With Olivier Giroud being out of action for Arsenal for the next few months, the new boy Danny Welbeck should get plenty of chances and lots of time to settle in with his new club and team mates, and his new role playing down the middle. But whereas some signings, especially strikers, are under pressure [.
There was a time when the mention of Aaron Ramsey's name alone could crash a plane; his form was that bad. He lost the support of many fans in whose opinion he was, in the words of Piers Morgan, "a complete and utter liability". Ramsey wasn't actually a bad player, he was one of the [...]
Arsenal need to stick with Ozil by Sam P I am not going to sit here and tell you that Mesut Ozil has not been a bit disappointing for Arsenal at times, or that his performance against Man City at the Emirates on Saturday was another one of those frustrating days for the fans. But [...]
Maybe, just maybe, people will start to realise that they should get a new target. Unlikely though, because Arsenal are so easy and we do seem to be the target of choice for the media muppets. And I know that plenty of Arsenal fans have been on the back of Jack Wilshere as well, just [...]
There is some very good news on the team front for Arsenal fans today, but it does not concern anyone on the Gunners' team sheet. It is the fact that our opponents Man City are without their talisman and best player Yaya Toure. And of course the new boy Danny Welbeck gets his debut at [...]
Arsenal vs Manchester City Preview, Line up and Predicted score by KJ This has been a long two weeks without watching Arsenal play and it's made worse by the fact that we've had the bitter taste of a draw against Leicester still in our mouths. But we have a chance to get back on track [...]

New Season Tactics and Lineup by HA Dear Gooners, Good day. The transfer window is shut. Arsenal had a good but not great window. Our playing style suits 4-2-3-1 most but for playing 4 defenders in every match for 55 odd games a season we needed 1 or 2 more defenders. Last year, there were [...]
What will be Arsenal's biggest challenge from now till the end of the season? by SE Arsenal, after enjoying a decent start to their campaign, will want to start producing results once the ongoing international break culminates.

Wenger has to get the best out of Ozil – but how? by SE The significance of Ozil firing on all cylinders for Arsenal just can't be stated enough.

Who should partner Ramsey in that advanced midfield role – Cazorla, Wilshere or Ozil? by SE In what has been a relatively busy summer at Arsenal, with Wenger bringing in the kind of personnel who he deems is ‘appropriate' to his plans, the system that he would have to play has been of equal speculation [.
