I wrote a piece on Arsenal and Jack Wilshere the other day, my point being that the 22-year old midfielder was showing signs of getting back to the form that made him such a sensation before his fledgling career was interrupted and nearly ruined by a series of long term and niggling injuries. But I [.
The subject of whether Arsenal should have tried to use the first refusal option to buy back the former club captain Cesc Fabregas was always going to come up after the Spanish midfielder joined our Premier League rivals Chelsea. And once Fabregas put in an impressive display in his first Premier League game for them, [.
Arsenal followed up their late win over Crystal Palace last weekend by labouring to a goalless draw in Istanbul in their Champions League qualifier first leg and now face a tough trip to Goodison Park on Saturday evening. The bookmakers appear to have overreacted to Arsenal's draw in Turkey and at 13/8 they look decent [.
After a few years of disappointment, for both Arsenal and England, and with a few pieces of bad publicity following him around, the young Gunner Jack Wilshere has admitted that this season is an absolutely huge one for him. It is no exaggeration to say that the next nine months or so could make or [.
Besiktas 0 – 0 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 7 Only had to make a few select saves but made them as required and wasn't at fault for any chances. A solid performance. Debuchy – 6 He was again a bit iffy for me. Easily caught out of position when high up [...]
There was a great swell of relief around the Emirates when Aaron Ramsey bundled the ball in the back of the net to give Arsenal there first opening day win since 2009. But according to last year's Player Of The Year, it is only the result that matters. "It was very difficult," Ramsey told Sky [...]
Arsenal made very hard work of the first half, and with Palace playing it very tight at the back it was looking difficult to get the ball to lone striker Yaya Sanogo. All the same it was a bit of a shock when the long-mooted Arsenal target Brede Hangerland flew above the Gunners defence to [...]
So the season begins for Arsenal at last! There have already been some interesting results, not least Man Utd losing at home to Swansea, and Everton only drawing with Leicester, so nobody can expect any easy games in the opening games. Here is the confirmed starting teams: Arsenal: Szczesny, Debuchy, Koscielny, Chambers, Gibbs, Arteta, Wilshere, [.
JustArsenal are being provided with official FA videos from this season, so we can happily pass these on to our readers without breaking any copyright laws!

FA Community Shield Review – Manchester City FC vs Arsenal FC by SE For the first time in 12 years, this season's FA Community Shield took place without one of Manchester United or Chelsea being a part of the momentous occasion. However, Manchester City FC and Arsenal FC took to Wembley for the annual curtain [.
Arsenal 3 – 0 Manchester City; Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 8 A very commanding performance by him with only one real mistake very late on where he misjudged a corner and left the goal wide open – fortunately City didn't capitalise. Debuchy – 5.5 Felt he was very poor today but he's probably [.
All Arsenal fans are clamouring for Arsene Wenger to still splash the cash on a striker and a new defensive midfielder, but it appears that Arsene Wenger believes that the new young arrival Calum Chambers is more than capable of fulfilling that role, and suggests he could be tried out in that position in todays [.
The two main talisman's for our rivals Chelsea and Liverpool over the last ten years has been Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard, and they are certainly admirable players to look up to for their prowess and consistentcy over the last decade. So if Aaron Ramsey aims to emulate the success of those two players for [.
AS I SEE IT: PART 1 by WC Arsenal's new season is upon us. We are all excited mainly because of two factors. The first one is that all those who were crocked last season, except Walcott, are raring to go. The second one stems from the four acquisitions already in the bag. But as [...]
Alright Arsenal fans, this is the time to be positive and get behind the Gunners for the rest of the season. Forget any worries about players we have got or those you might wish we had; this is when all Gooners must believe in Arsene Wenger and the boys, no matter what. Bones broken, Spirit [...]
I am going to give the Arsenal duo of Jack Wilshere and Olivier Giroud the benefit of the doubt and say that they were not really match sharp for that Emirates Cup game against Monaco, while the Ligue 1 team looked like they were more than a week closer to the start of the season. [...]
Arsenal 5 -1 Benfica: Player Ratings by KJ. Martinez – 7 It was a very solid performance by the Argentine. He made the necessary saves and was commanding in the box. Bellerin – 8 An impressive performance by the young Spaniard. He struggled defensively early on but grew into the game and was brilliant offensively.
As the years went by and Arsenal seemed to get further away from winning a trophy, I was one of the people who supported Arsene Wenger and kept reminding people what a good job the Frenchman was doing. I know that the media and fans of other Premier League clubs took the mickey, but the [...]
Why it will be easy to get Walcott to renew his deal at Arsenal by KJ With us signing Sanchez, Walcott's impact on the team has gone slightly under the radar. Many of us would agree that his injury ultimately prevented us from winning the title last season. He would've easily won us another 7 [...]
Who could be the central figure to Arsenal's season? by SE Something tells me that Arsenal are going to be this season's dark horse in the Premier League. Their squad seems to have got most loop holes plucked, and there's a sense of assertion about Arsenal and Arsene Wenger building on their FA Cup win [.
The best of Mesut Ozil could be on show this seasonb by SE It is not uncommon for any player making the switch to the Premier League, especially at Arsenal, to not realize their full potential in their very first season – and Mesut Ozil is no odd case in this regard. The German, though, [...]
Why Ramsey's heroics from last season would mitigate the pressure on playmaker Ozil? by SE Aaron Ramsey's inclination to wander into the 18-yard area last season was something like an early morning exercise routine. It was something he enjoyed doing. It was something he looked irresistible in. He excelled at carrying it out, too.
Why Ramsey should take free kicks for Arsenal by Sumo What struck me as odd during the Germany World Cup campaign was the Arsenal midfield maestro Mesut Özil playing second fiddle to Bayern Munich's Toni Kroos in the set pieces. Kroos is a box to box midfielder who has a very good shot on him. [...]
What next for Ramsey? by TJ After a remarkable season for Aaron Ramsey which saw him score 16 goals and providing 9 assists, many will start to ask how Ramsey should progress from here, The world has seen what he can do. He was without a doubt the star in Arsenal's trophy winning season, often [...]
It might sound a bit daft to be talking about Jack Wilshere running out of time to get his Arsenal career back on track, as the lad is only 22-years old and has missed so much time due to a string of injuries, but he certainly cannot afford to stand still for too long, or [...]
This should be another reminder to any of the current or future Arsenal players, that criticism can be constructive, as long as you react in the right way to it. And our flying forward, Theo Walcott has done just that since Alean Hansen said four years ago that the young Gunner just did not have [...
It is not too often in recent years that we have seen the Arsenal manager grinning like the Chesire cat from Alice in Wonderland, but that is how the Frenchman looks in some of the photos from today's training session at London Colney. I don't blame him either, because this time of year is usually [.
Hey Arsenal fans, do not get me wrong! I love the fact that Arsene Wenger no longer seems to be like the Gunners' own Ebeneezer Scrooge, carefully counting the pennies and looking for the cheapest possible way to make ends meet. But I am also a little concerned that we might be making a mistake [...]
Why this is Jack Wilshere's season by AT It's been three seasons now since Wilshere suffered an injury that would rule him out of an entire year of football and would lead him to have surgery that could've potentially ended his footballing career. Now he's played for the majority of the last two seasons but [.
A tactical analysis and the importance of Giroud. by JC Though there were a lot of positives taken from last season, diversity and efficiency in attack was more often than not, not one of them and injuries to key players was largely to blame. Walcott had matured in leaps and bounds the previous two seasons [.
There have been plenty of Arsenal transfer rumours already this summer and quite a large portion of those have centred around our search, if Arsene Wenger is actually searching this time, for the player to bolster the midfield and give us more defensive strength. Today there is a report in the Daily Mail that claims [.
There is no doubt that the Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere has had his fair share of bad luck and trouble in his short football career. And last season was no different, with more niggling injuries preventing him from having a big impact on the Arsenal season. Then the Arsenal man was savaged on [.
Despite quite a few pundits and sections of the media, and the Arsenal fans, grabbing the nearest stick to beat Mesut Ozil with because of his perceived flop in his debut season as a Gunner, there is no doubt that Arsene Wenger sees him as a key member of the Arsenal team. Hopefully that will [...]
In the last few years, Arsenal have gone through captains faster than Jose Mourinho has gone through people who like him. Arsene Wenger looks like he is going to have to pick someone for the armband again this summer, even if the Frenchman decides to make Thomas Vermaelen see out his contract. A player who [.
I am sure that I am not the only Arsenal fan that is already sick to the back teeth of all the Arsenal transfer rumours that are in the papers day after day. The fact that none of them ever come to anything concrete does not help, but I have come to the conclusion that [...]
I must confess that the name Alessandro Florenzi meant nothing to me when I saw it among the Arsenal transfer news items today, so I have done a bit of digging to see just what sort of player that this Italian that Arsene Wenger seems to be very keen on is. Various media outlets, including [...]
Arsenal Wrap Up Deal For World-Class Fitness Coach by A.T. Following the £42.5 million capture of German playmaker Mesut Ozil last summer, Arsenal fans will be very optimistic going into this summer's transfer window. With so many top names linked with a move to North London, it certainly does seem as though Arsene Wenger is [.
It was after all the injuries to various players had finally seen Arsenal lose their place at the top of the Premier League table, that Arsene Wenger admitted there was a problem. And with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain possibly having to miss the World Cup and the start of next season, the subject is fresh in out [.
Every time I wrote an article during the season just gone, bemoaning Arsenal's terrible luck with injuries, and other things like referees and cup draws, I was accused of being biased, blinkered and a bad loser. Well here is the proof that although I may be a bad loser and biased, I am not blinkered.
Who to name for the job? by Blaz The season that successfully ended a week ago was very interesting for Arsenal. Especially if we look through the eyes of the team leadership. We had a captain that started just a handful of games, then we had two players who wore the armband in his place, [...]
