Is this going to be one of the best season we have had in a while? by Fordo I know most of the Arsenal fans might not be very happy with our season so far, and I will admit that I have also been heartbroken, especially in this last couple of weeks when we saw [...]
Let's be honest Arsenal fans. How many of you thought that we would never see Kim Kallstrom start a game for the Gunners after it was revealed that he had a micro-fracture in his spine when he signed on January deadline day? Pretty much all of us then, because he was only supposed to be [...]
If only Arsenal could have had a slightly smaller injury list this season, who knows what we could have been fighting for now. One of the worst aspects of the Gunners' injury problems this season has been losing so many of our key players in the middle of the park at the same time. So [...]
Arsenal 3 – 1 West Ham Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 6 He didn't have much to do all game other than pick the ball out of the net for the opening goal. He was untroubled because we defensively handled West Ham far better than most expected considering the physicality of Carroll and the [...]
Arsene Wenger made quite a few changes to his Arsenal team, some of them forced on him because the FA cup semi-final exertions. So Kallstrom, Giroud, Rosicky and Koscielny came in for Gibbs, Chamberlain, Sanogo and Ramsey. Arsenal could really have done with a fast start but we didn't really get it, so it looked [.
Arsenal vs West Ham Preview, Line up and predicted score by KJ After a dramatic win on Saturday, Arsenal need to go back to the Premier league now and beat West Ham to maintain our top 4 aspirations. Going into this game, our team is going to be absolutely knackered throughout the squad. The majority [.
Everyone at Arsenal will certainly have received a boost by getting into the FA cup final with a penalty shootout win over Wigan Athletic, but there is now a Premier League run-in to focus on and the Gunners could really do with another boost from some of our injured players. And we may even get [...
Unfortunately for Arsenal, it looks like they are going to have to wait a little longer for the return of the excellent French centre back Laurent Koscielny. And with their toughest tackling and most defensive midfielder, Mathieu Flamini, missing his second game with suspension, there will be a big onus on Per Mertesacker and club [.
I remember writing a while back about the FA doing Arsenal no favours, as usual, when they announced that the away game against West Ham which had to be changed was to be played on the Tuesday after the FA cup semi-final. Well injuries, a suspension and the fact that the game at Wembley went [...]
Well it was rollercoaster ride of emotions for anyone connected with Arsenal Football Club today, but the end result is that the Gunners will be running out on to the Wembley turf on Saturday May 17th to face either Hull City or Sheffield United. But is that all that matters? Arsenal were far from great [.
There is good news and bad news for Arsenal as Arsene Wenger and his players attempt to book a place in the FA cup final in just over a month's time. As usual, the Gunners squad is ravaged by injury, but at least two key players will be on from the start against Wigan Athletic [...]
Arsenal vs Wigan Preview, Line up and predicted score by KJ This is it Arsenal fans! Our season has started to fall apart and we need to win against Wigan to prevent one of the most embarrassing collapses in our recent history. Losing is unthinkable. We are going to have to take the initiative tomorrow [.
I am not sure if it is just me, but judging from the comments from Arsenal fans over the week I don"t think so, but the crushing despair and worry that followed last weekend's tame display at Everton has slowly been replaced by excitement and growing confidence in the last few days. I really hope [..
We always knew that Mathieu Flamini's return to Arsenal would come with a few disciplinary problems along the way. The French midfielder even managed to get on the wrong side of Arsene Wenger after he decided to circumvent club tradition and take a blunt pair of scissors to his Arsenal kit because the long sleeves [.
There are certainly doubts about whether Arsenal have the players, mental strength and whatever else is needed to finish the season strongly. But it appears that most of those doubts are in the minds of Arsenal fans themselves. Of course, we are a lot more reason to be nervous than the neutral, but a look [.
I'm sure I don't need to tell you that Arsenal head into a massive game for the club in not exactly the best form or frame of mind. But it could be so much worse for us. If Wigan Athletic had not pulled off a shock result against Man City in the last round, our [...]
Arsene Wenger pulled no punches after his Arsenal team were comprehensively outplayed by Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday. The Frenchman may not know exactly why things have got so bad for the Gunners, but he has clearly identified what was wrong with the players, as reported by Arsenal.com. Identifying the issues and fixing tham, [.
ARSENAL & ARSENE NEED TO CREATE OPTIONS by A.D. It has not been good viewing for those who, like me, crossed over to Arsenal's side among PL teams owing to their free–flowing, uninhibited attacking game. At least not for last couple of months. The Gunners had their way for most of the year against modest [.
It is hard for Arsenal fans to find any positives to take from yesterday's dismal defeat at the hands of Everton, especially as it has put us in very real danger of dropping out of the elite European competition that is the Champions League. There were a few positives, though, which we can look at [.
Everton 3 v 0 Arsenal Match Report Infographic by allArsenal.com Another horrible away performance from the Gunners resulted in a damaging 3-0 loss to fellow 'fourth placed trophy' contenders Everton. The fact Ramsey gets our Man of the Match says it all. The Ox didn't do a half bad job either, rattling the bar late [.
Everton 3 â€“ 0 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny â€“ 7.5 It just sums the game up that our best player amongst the starters was Szczesny and he had to pick the ball out of the net three times. He kept us in the game numerous times and the players didn't back that up [...]
This is a massive game for both clubs and, even though Arsenal still harbour some lingering but fading title hopes, I think it is more important for Everton to win than us. A draw will keep the Gunners in pole position to secure Champiuons League football for the 17th year in a row. So it [...]
Wenger questions player's use of drugs! Whilst drug tests searching for illegal substance misuse in the professional game is becoming an ever increasingly high profile topic, it has never really been a problem for Arsenal. But maybe it is the use of legal drugs that has been causing the club a problem this season.
I think that Arsene Wenger has shown remarkable forbearance this season by not blaming all of the problems Arsenal have faced on bad luck. The Frenchman has not moaned too much about the awful decisions from referees that have cost us valuable points, except maybe the Szczesny red card against Bayern Munich.
I get the impression that Arsene Wenger is going to send his Arsenal players out with the instructions to be positive and take the game to Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday, for a number of reasons. And I also think that it is the right, if somewhat risky, strategy against an in form Toffees [...]
How beneficial will it be for Arsenal with Ramsey's return? by Ash The best news of the week for Gooners seems to be that Arsenal have announced that Aaron Ramsey has returned from injury that caused him to miss over three months of the season. And now he could even play a part in the [...]
Why is Ozil taking so long to come back? by Ash Arsenal's Â£42 million man Mesut Ozil has arguably failed to live up to his expectation since coming to the Premier League. At first he was a revelation to Arsenal football club. I have not seen a player be so widely accepted by all fans [...]
This is the news that every Arsenal fan has been waiting for since the start of the year. Aaron Ramsey, the player who was voted as Player of the Month by Gooners for the first four months of the season, Super Aaron Ramsey, is back in the Arsenal squad to face Everton on Sunday. Arsene [...]
After what happened a month or so ago, there is no way that Arsenal Football Club will be taking many risks with the young Welsh midfield star Aaron Ramsey. But everyone connected with the Gunners will have their fingers crossed that Ramsey's race to be ready to face Wigan Athletic at Wembley in 10 days [.
Who do we bring in with Â£100 million? by KJ It has been reported that Stan Kroenke has sanctioned a transfer kitty of Â£100 million for Arsene Wenger to spend this summer. I don't know if this is a ploy to get Arsene to stay or whether it is a genuine statement by Kroenke to [...]
There is little doubt that Arsenal are now fighting to secure a place in the Champions League for next season rather than being crowned champions of England for the first time since the invincibles went a whole season unbeaten. It is not too hard to the main reason for that, as the Gunners have won [.
Why we will finish in the top 4 by KJ After Everton's win yesterday, there have been many worries that they could pip Arsenal to the top 4, with them being only 4 points behind us as well as having a game in hand and a game against us at Goodison park. However, I don't [...]
Arsenal fans love Santiago Cazorla, with good reason, but not many would disagree that the tricky Spaniard has not had nearly as good a second season as he did last year. An early injury did not help and the arrival of Mesut Ozil meant that he has not played in the same central role as [...]
Why Arteta will need to be replaced by KJ I've been a massive Mikel Arteta fan since he signed for Arsenal back in 2011. In his first season, he offered a good balance of defending and attacking whilst being able to dictate the play as the lynchpin in midfield. With the departure of Song, he [...]
Only one Arsenal midfielder, Santi Cazorla, has started and played in more games than club record signing Mesut Ozil this season. That gives a clear indication of how much Arsene Wenger has relied on the German international this season but also suggests a reason why his form has tailed off so much after a great [.
Arsenal may need to hand out photos to all the stewards and some of the players ahead of training on Tuesday, other wise Abou Diaby could be thrown off the site. The tall Frenchman has been away from a football pitch for so long that people could be forgiven for forgetting what he looks like. [...]
Stop blaming injuries! by Big Gun Every season we have the same misfortunes and somehow or the other we find every single excuse to try and avoid the following obvious fact. Every single club in the world has to deal with injuries. Some fans make it sound like it is only Arsenal that has to [...]
Arsenal fans need to remain patient on Ramsey return by Ash On a week that has been pretty disappointing so far for the Gunners, with a humiliating 6-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea, and then another poor performance on Tuesday, this time against Swansea City in the league, Arsenal will be hoping that the [.
Arsenal fans can debate all day about whether this season has been a shocking failure or the closest the Gunners have come to winning the title for many years. And we all have our own theories about what positions need strengthening and who Arsene Wenger should be targeting in the summer transfer market, but I [.
Positive injury news on Jack Wilshere! Whilst there are some recent disappointments on the injury front upon hearing that neither Mesut Ozil nor Laurent Koscienly will be available for this weekend's semi final cup clash against Wigan Athletic, it is good news that they will soon be returning to the fold in a week at [.
