Arsenal got two first half goals and then saw out a spirited second half from Bournemouth to end the recent run without a win. The points were vital today and we now prepare for Leicester with renewed confidence and a better looking league table. But it was not the dominant performance and heavy scoreline that [.
Arsenal are going through a mini goal drought at the moment having gone three games without a goal from anywhere. There has been much criticism of our strikers for being so wayward, but Arsene Wenger is trying to deflect criticism from his front men by declaring that there are many factors involved, and one of [.
For Arsenal to win the Premier League title we need quite a few things to happen. Starting from the away game against Bournemouth on Sunday the Gunners need to get back to winning ways. We really need to hold our nerve and deal with the expectation of winning games against so-called lesser teams and then [.
Most Arsenal fans have spent the last day, or the last few weeks if you want to look at it that way, tearing our hair out in frustration and feeling angry that the Gunners look like blowing our best chance of winning the Premier League in years due to the same old failings. A limp [...]
I know that the Arsenal and Chile forward Alexis Sanchez only played for the final half an hour of the disappointing Premier League defeat to Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium yesterday, and he did not manage to get the goal we were so desperate for, but his introduction did produce the best period of the [.
Arsenal fans are not the type to get too excited about a January transfer window. We have good reason too. Just whisper the name of Kim Kallstrom and watch the pain in the eyes of any Gooner that happens to be close by. Arsene Wenger has signed a player at least, and in the area [...]
There seems to be an ever-growing feeling that Barcelona have made the Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey their main target for the coming summer, and the rumours are becoming more and more persistent in the last few weeks. Ramsey has played alongside Gareth Bale in the Wales national team for many years and they will both [.
While Arsenal fans might feel that the end of the January transfer window is already coming up too fast, Arsene Wenger could be forgiven for wishing it was already over, because of the news that the Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid have been slapped with a transfer ban by football's governing body FIFA.
My choice of which Arsenal player to give the Man of the Match to was not as simple as it might seem, even though Olivier Giroud scored two of our goals and both of them were very good. He had missed an absolute sitter earlier and there were also strong performances from Ramsey, with a [...]
Wow that was an amazing and full blooded Premier League encounter between Arsenal and Liverpool and in some ways it was very similar to what happened at Anfield last season. Arsenal were hit hard and fast by the home team from the start and we somehow managed to weather the storm, come back and take [.
It was fairly easy to guess the Arsenal starting line up that would be facing Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool side in the Premier League at Anfield tonight, with Arsene Wenger only having a couple of little decisions to make. There are no surprises really, as Giroud starts through the middle. Ramsey, Flamini, Mertesacker and Monreal all [.
Stats show Leiva and Can will dominate Flamini and Ramsey in key midfield battle by RC Jürgen Klopp has admitted than Liverpool cannot compete with Arsenal if they try to match Arsene Wenger's possession-based game-plan. The Premier League leaders go to Anfield on Wednesday night as they continue their pursuit of claiming a first league [.
He may not have actually scored or provided the assist for any of the three goals Arsenal scored against Sunderland yesterday in order to progress to the next round of the FA cup, but I believe that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was the best player on the pitch. After a tough and stop-start season so far the [.
There have been many interesting Arsenal transfer rumours this month, but most have been concerning players that may be coming to the Emirates (except for Matthieu Debuchy) as cover for our never-ending injury list. But today the Express is reporting that the Barcelona manager Luis Enrique is a big fan of our very own Aaron [.
Before this 3rd round FA cup clash Arsene Wenger had urged his Arsenal players not to take the visitors Sunderland too lightly and expressed the need for Arsenal to start well, so the FRenchman must have been wondering what was going when the Gunners presented the Black Cats with a real gift for the opening [.
Now that Arsenal have come through the festive run of fixtures relatively unscathed, we can all relax a little bit. Amazingly enough Arsene Wenger has no more injury problems to worry about and he now has a week to prepare for the next match, Sunderland at home in the FA cup. However, I would not [..
Arsenal Mid-Season Evaluation Midfielders by Jonn Hirons Today I wanted to have a look at how I feel our squad is doing this year, there been some highs, lows and of course injuries. I rated the Keepers and Defence earlier so now let's discuss the midfielders. Defensive Midfielders Francis Coquelin Coquelin stunned [.
Unlike a big proportion of the Arsenal fans, it seems like the French holding midfield star Francis Coquelin will not be hoping that Arsene Wenger uses the January transfer window to bring in another player to strengthen our options in the centre. It is not because he is worried about his own position in the [.
Flamini and Ramsey Doing Well for Arsenal, But What Happens When Injured Duo Return? by AT As a result of long-term injuries to Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla, Arsenal have been forced to field Mathieu Flamini and Aaron Ramsey in central midfield. But despite the partnership being fairly new, it has blossomed and has made [.
Most pundits are still assuming that Leicester will drop away from the top of the Premier League table, and at this moment everyone (including the bookies) is assuming it is going to be a straight fight between Arsenal and Manchester City, so our win yesterday against our main rivals was a timely reminder of our [.
I am not just trying to be different in picking Theo Walcott as my Man of the Match from the Arsenal win over title rivals Manchester City last night, even though the obvious choice was our king of assists Mesut Ozil, who put in another performance full of quality and class. But as well as [...]
There was a bit of a furore in the summer surrounding what the former Arsenal and France striker Thierry Henry said about the current strike force at the club, and more specifically about the current Arsenal and FRance centre forward Olivier Giroud. The big man was not happy at what he took to be a [.
Mesut Ozil v David Silva In the run up to Christmas, title contenders Arsenal and Manchester City face each other at the Emirates Stadium for the first time this season. In such a tightly fixed contest, the fine form of playmakers Mesut Ozil and David Silva will be key to the game. Fantasy Football game [.
At least Arsenal managed to get through our final Champions League group game against Olympiacos and the two Premier League clashes with Sunderland and Aston Villa without losing any more players to injury. Seven first team players is more than enough to have in the treatment room thank you. But there is some more bad [.
As Arsenal fans prepare for the latest test of our Premier League title winning credentials, this could be a crucial week for Arsene Wenger and the players. Man City may not be top of the table right now but they will still probably be the biggest obstacle to the Gunners being crowned champions in May.
THis rtesult never really looked in doubt once Arsenal had taken an early lead away to struggling Aston Villa and despite some signs of fatigue in the second half, quite understandable after a long and tiring midweek trip to Greece, the Gunners got the jod done quite comfortably and finish the weekend right where we [.
Over the past few years, quite a few in fact, one of the many complaints from the Arsenal fans about Arsene Wenger and his transfer policy was that the Frenchman kept ignoring certain weaknesses in the Arsenal squad while he kept buying the same sort of players. You all know the sort I mean, the [...
Hot on the heels of Arsenal losing the midfield enforcer Francis Coquelin to a long term injury, it was seen as a huge blow to then lose his partner in the centre of midfield. And with Santi Cazorla having gone under the knife and likely to be out even longer than his French team mate, [...]
The final goal of the game between Arsenal and Sunderland could be a significant one for a number of reasons. The most important one at the time was that it sealed the win and let the Arsenal fans and players relax after a stressful game in which the Black Cats could count themselves a bit [...]
Consistency and squad balance by KM Hello guys. So after a month of going through interview hell in the job market, I'm finally back with some spare time to share a thought on how our beloved Arsenal is doing in this insane roller coaster season. The idea here is that all top teams are as [...]
So we can now start the buildup to Wednesdays crucial match in Athens in a much more confident mood than we would have imagined a couple of weeks ago. We have got Oxlade-Chamberlain, Walcott and Ramsey back in the squad and we have had a confidence boosting second half against Sunderland on Saturday.
I was very, very close to giving the Arsenal and Germany play maker Mesut Ozil yet another Man of the Match, because he was brilliant again and got the ball rolling with a sublime pass for Joel Campbell to score the opening goal. He was also involved in just about every decent attacking move the [...
The options available to Arsene Wenger when selecting his Arsenal line up for today's game against Sunderland at the Emirates stadium are smaller than they have been all season and with three key players in Alexis Sanchez, Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin being on the injury list and after the Gunners' recent struggles in the [.
With Arsenal missing so many crucial first team players, Sam Allardyce will be hoping that his Sunderland team can cause the Gunners problems although they themselves are also suffering from injuries to key personell. With Francis Coquelin and Santo Cazorla both ruled out for at least three months, Arsene Wenger will have to find a [.
First of all the basis of this tactical discussion is the assumption that the Arsenal manager will go with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joel Campbell on either side of Olivier Giroud when Arsenal next play in the Premier League, which is a home game with struggling Sunderland on Saturday. Let´s be honest and admit that the [.
I, for one, am dreading Arsenal playing Sunderland this weekend. Not because I think we could lose the game, but I am thinking we could lose some more players to injury. We all thought our injury list was bad before but to lose Sanchez and Cazorla last week on top of Coquelin's three months we [...]
Aaron Ramsey must take this chance by JH Well, The news we have all been dreading was released today, Santi Cazorla is going to miss the next 3 months of football. Which means that both of our first choice centre midfielders will now miss 3 months. In place of Francis Coquelin we have Mathieu Flamini, [.
Arsenal's incredible history of injury problems continues as usual with Laurent Koscielny and Alexis Sanchez being taken off during the Norwich game, but it has now been revealed that Santi Cazorla also sustained a knee ligament injury right at the start of the second half, but he was forced to continue playing right until the [.
Arsenal fans and our manager are waiting and hoping that the injury news on Alexis Sanchez and Santi Cazorla is not too bad. After we heard the good news yesterday that our French centre back Laurent Koscielny had no lasting damage and would be available to face Sunderland at the weekend, more good news on [.
All Arsenal fans are up in arms about the Gunners dropping two points at Norwich yesterday, and even worse we have sustained three more injuries to key players that we can ill afford to do without right now. Arsene Wenger felt that Norwich played a defensive game and deserved the point. Le Prof told Arsenal.
