Arsenal fans will be hoping for a morale boosting win against Borussia Dortmund tomorrow, which would make us all feel a lot better as well as keeping alive our faint hopes of topping the Champions League group. But The fans and players and Arsene Wenger would happily settle for a share of the spoils as [.
It was a huge disappointment for Arsenal fans to lose to Manchester United, as it always is. But the anger and frustration was heightened so much because they were there for the taking and just like last season, Arsenal let them off the hook. So I can understand the fans being furious, but I do [...]
Why the Form of Ramsey is So Crucial for Arsenal! by AT When Aaron Ramsey scored the last-minute winner against Crystal Palace in the first game of the season, we all thought that the Welshman was picking up from where he left off for Arsenal last season. But twelve games in to the season, we [...]
Arsene Wenger must have been mightily relieved when the in form England striker Danny Welbeck passed his late fitness test and as expected, the Frenchman has stuck with the pacy and hard working front man instead of bringing back Olivier Giroud who has made an early return to fitness and is on the bench to [.
Why Wilshere and Ramsey will never work together as a central midfield pairing by KJ After Wilshere's impressive display against Slovenia, many are questioning once again as to why we can't play Wilshere and Ramsey together. Wilshere is clearly doing well for England in that deep role and Ramsey is a similar (albeit far better) [.
With an international break on the horizon, Arsenal somehow find themselves in a great position to go into a two week break in a good position, just a point behind Man City and well above the likes of Liverpool, Man United and Tottenham. And we also need a win to put some poor results and [...]
Swansea vs Arsenal Preview, Predicted line up and score by KJ After the midweek capitulation, this game against Swansea has become that much tougher. They will have studied the result thoroughly and will look to get at our players mentally in the hope that they are fragile from the result against Anderlecht.
It seems as though a decent run in the Arsenal team, mainly because he has managed to stay reasonable injury free for the last year or so, has really paid off for Kieran Gibbs, and for the Gunners as well of course as he is now clearly our first choice left back. But despite making [...]
Just about everyone concerned with Arsenal Football Club will have been absolutely astounded at what they saw against Anderlecht at the Emirates last night. And most of us have been trying to pick the performance apart to see just how the Gunners managed to throw away a three goal lead against one of the minnows [.
It does not seem all that long ago that Arsenal were last holding talks with Theo Walcott and his representatives about a new contract, but in January it will be two years since he signed his current deal worth around £90,000 a week. And that one was only for three years, which is why the [...]
Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal players have a great chance to qualify for the next round of the Champions League by beating Anderlecht at the Emirates tonight. And confidence in the dressing room will be much higher than the last time we lined up against the Belgians, after that late win and two EPL wins [.
If Arsene Wenger is right and the constant and recurring injury problems that have dogged Arsenal in recent years are coming to an end, it really is fantastic news. Because just last month it was revealed in a Daily Mail report that the Gunners have suffered more injury problems than any other club in the [.
Players around Sanchez need to step it up by KM There's no need to tell you, who is Arsenal's best player. Once again Alexis Sanchez produced a performance that everyone around him, should look and think about implementing for themselves. Forget the immense quality the guy has, it is the fighting spirit and determination that [.
I know that Arsenal are already facing a tall order in our hopes of beating the German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund to the top spot in our Champions League qualifying group after our woeful performance at the Westfalenstadion was punished with a 2-0 loss. But things have started to look up as JUrgen Klopp and [.
Arsenal 3 – 0 Burnley Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 6 He had very little to do all game. Chambers – 7.5 A lot better today overall. More fluid play and he managed to net an assist as well as scoring the second. Mertesacker – 7 He wasn't tested much but was strong in [...]
It is absolutely vitasl that Arsenal keep their recent improved run of results going with a home win against Burnley today. But almost as important as picking up all three points is for the players to build on the last two wins and start to find their fluency going forwards and their solididity in midfield [.
Arsenal vs Burnley Preview, Line up and Predicted score by KJ It's a bit odd to go a full week without football in between but Arsenal were knocked out of the League Cup fairly early by Southampton and were afforded a week's rest. It's a blessing in disguise really considering the multitude of injuries we [.
Some squad issues Wenger could think about by KM Arsenal welcome Burnley in what should be a walk in the park on a Saturday afternoon. They've conceded 16 goals, they have only grabbed 4 points so far and have only scored 5 goals. Anything but the 3 points would be a huge blow, but we've [...]
Is Santi Cazorla doing enough playing in the creative midfield role for Arsenal? by SE Santi Cazorla was going to be one of the key personnel for Arsenal this season, as the North Londoners were without Mesut Ozil to start off with, and Alexis Sanchez was new to the club. Cazorla, who plays as an [..
It will be no surprise to any Arsenal fan or anyone who has been watching the Gunners play recently, to hear that the Chile international striker Alexis Sanchez has been voted by the fans as the Arsenal Player of the Month for October. In fact, it was such an easy decision that the 25-year old [...]
I am fairly sure that I was not the only Arsenal fan to be a little bit surprised to see the Gunners starting XI for the trip to face Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. My main surprise was to see both Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini on the team sheet, but then Jack Wilshere [...]
A few years ago Jack Wilshere was hailed as the next big English star and was loved for his do-or-die attitude for Arsenal. Due to injuries and lay-offs that expectation has waned a bit, but the player himself feels that he has now regained his golden touch for the Gunners. He told Arsenal.com today: "I've [.
For a long time now, one of the most talked about factors of the Arsenal team, often seen as a weakness but always a topic of debate, is the central midfield area. And more specifically, the most deep lying or defensive part of it. Now the club captain Mikel Arteta has had his own say [...]
Is the Wilshere-Ramsey partnership a problem? Or is it just the way it is being executed? by Usmanov Whether we like this formation or not, the much spoke-against 4-1-4-1 formation has come to stay. More so, Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey are the two players crucial to this strategy being in the scheme of things [.
Arsene Wenger made an illusion about the temperature that water boils at and compared it to the almost very good performances that Arsenal had been putting in at the start of the season, suggesting that the Gunners just needed a few extra degrees of temperature before we hit our own boiling point. Now I know [.
It is now looking like Arsenal waving an early goodbye to the Capital One Cup at the hands of Southampton about a month ago could turn out to be a blessing in disguise. Of course it means that the Gunners have one less chance of winning a trophy this season, but we have got bigger [...]
I know that in football the buck stops at the manager, but I also think that Arsenal fans are too quick to blame everything on Arsene Wenger. Maybe it is the years of frustration when we failed to win a trophy and dropped behind the big spending Premier League clubs like Chelsea and Man City. [...]
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 [...
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 [.
