Today is a big day for Arsenal and potentially a pivotal one in this Premier League season, as whoever wins the game will head into the international break with great belief and in a very good position to challenge the leage leaders Man City for the title of champions. The Gunners need to bounce back [.
Arsenal Players should take 80% of the blame. By Galen I try not write any article immediately after a game of football. Most often the anger is doing all the talking. I have gone back to Arsenal Player and watch our game vs Olympiakos. I have also read and seen the comments of the fans [...]
Arsenal fans have been known to accuse Arsene Wenger of having his favourite players that he will keep playing whether they are in good form or not and one of the players this has been said about most in recent years is the Wales international midfielder Aaron Ramsey. As we know, Rambo proved his many [.
It was hard work for Arsenal going forward as Olympiakos showed us how to defend but we did create a lot and both Walcott and Alexis scored great goals, with the Chilean again our best player. The defenders and keeper, though, had another shocker. Ospina 4 Not to blame for 1st or 3rd but [...]
The Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey watched his team-mate Alexis Sanchez break his goal drought against Leicester this weekend, and quickly follow it up with two more in our 5-2 win. The Welshman is keen to emulate the Chilean in tonight's game against Olympiakos at the Emirates tonight. Ramsey's drought now stretchs back to 14 games [.
If Arsenal had won, or even not lost, the opening Champions League game away to Dinamo Zagreb, things may have been different. Maybe not, because Arsene Wenger has been speaking today about how vital it is to win your home games in these European league based tournaments. Having lost in Croatia, though, the game at [.
Super Flamini to the rescue as Arsene desperately needed this win by KM As an Arsenal fan you always enjoy a win against Spurs at the Lane, don't you? The chance to mock that Spurs fan sitting on the desk next to you while you drink your afternoon tea. Out of all the possible goalscorers, [...]
I was already leaning towards Mathieu Flamini as the best Arsenal player in the Capital One cup north London derby, and then the Frenchman came up with that stunning volley to win the game, so there was no contest. As well as his goals, Flamini brought grit, drive and determination to the heart of the [.
For people expecting a fierce local derby it was a slow and tentative start from both sides and that probably suited Arsenal better after two defeats in a row. No one could have predicted that this game would belong to Mathieu Flamini though, but I will say that I had called for him to start [...]
Crisis? What crisis? by Sam P Yet again, after two away defeats in a row, Arsenal fans are calling our situation a crisis and resurrecting the 'Wenger Out' articles. But let's put things in perspective shall we?.... Our loss in Zagreb (with a team filled with reserves) was the result of referee errors and a [.
Can Wenger learn from the legendary Herbert Chapman? Hi all, Middy here again with an interesting thought for you all, can Wenger learn from the legendary Herbert Chapman? Herbert Chapman played a WM formation, in numbers it is a 3-2-2-3 formation, it allowed for narrow play while pressing as soon as the team lost the [.
The debate among Arsenal fans about Arsene Wenger´s team selection for the opening Champions League game away to Dinamo Zagreb will go on, especially if the players that he rested with Saturday´s Premier League game in mind cannot get Arsenal a good result against Chelsea. But we better get used to it Gooners because [.
While it is vital for Arsenal to get off to a positive start in the Champions League by beating Dinamo Zagreb in Croatia tomorrow, there is no way that Arsene Wenger can focus on just this game. With another crucial game away to Chelsea in the Premier League less than three days later, the Frenchman [.
Arsene Wenger has this week tried to play down the bad blood that has existed between Arsenal and Stoke City ever since that horrible and potentially career ending tackle on Aaron Ramsey by the Stoke defender Ryan Shawcross. That was back in early 2010 but the animosity between the two clubs has never gone away.
The Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is just in the process of completing one of the major goals of his life, which is to help his country reach a major tournament Finals. Yesterday evening they could have secured their place if they could have just nicked a goal against a very defensive Israel, but even with [.
Theo Walcott needs to play on the Right!! by JH One of Arsenals main issues this season has been our lack of pace up top. With Aaron Ramsey on the wing we lose the pace and width that The Ox or Theo naturally provide. I do understand AW putting him on the wing is due [...]
GETTING THE BEST OUT OF WALCOTT by Uche We have a striking problem and Gunners everywhere have blamed Olivier Giroud for this. We are disappointed in him because we believe we can do better. That is the main issue really because Olivier is not a bad player at all. Coming into a club that has [...]
The Wales international midfielder Aaron Ramsey is not too worried about Arsenal's opening day loss to West Ham, and has appealed to Arsenal fans to ignore the Premier League table until a quarter of the season has passed, to make a more realistic assessment of how our season is going. "So many things can happen [.
Arsenal started off in brilliant style and Newcastle had great trouble even getting a touch on the ball. Theo Walcott had a few promising chances in the first half, but most of the action came from the referee's card pocket! Sissoko was the first in the book and Newcastle came close to more yellows until [.
The joy of scoring a goal for Arsenal gets evaporated in a moment if it is disallowed for offside. The pain doubles if the call is wrong and the goal should have stood. Aaron Ramsey would have felt all these emotions during his disallowed ‘offside goal' against Liverpool. In a tight match where both sides [.
That is now the first two home Premier League games that Arsenal have failed to score a goal, although the world and his wife knows that the referee robbed Aaron Ramsey with the awful offside decision against Liverpool. Still, for the whole of the first game and a large portion of the second we did [.
Arsenal may have drawn a blank for the second home game in a row, leaving us languishing at around the halfway point of the league table, but there are some positives to be taken. I may be over optimistic or simply naive here, but I do think that the Gunners are close to clicking into [...]
A quick look at the Premier League table will tell Arsenal fans that we are already off the pace, with three of our big Premier League rivals sitting above us. Apart from the very obvious fact that the Gunners have not started the season very well though, I do not think we need to worry [...]
I know that people will always trot out that famous old football saying about it being a 'nice problem to have' when, like Arsenal right now, a club has a lot of competition for places in a certain area of the pitch. But a problem is a problem and the centre of midfield and who [...]
It does not really matter who I or other Arsenal fans think should be in Arsenal's starting XI to face Liverpool tonight, as Arsene Wenger will stick to his favourite line up for as long as possible until injuries or midweek games force his hand. There were no new injuries and no returning stars to [.
The 11 fire fighters. By Galen Sona Are Arsenal ruthless enough in the transfer market? Is it difficult to find players that can make Arsenal better? Do we need another Striker? Do we need a defensive midfielder? Do Arsenal really want to win the league? Is Cech the only signing? What is going on at [.
Arsenal's longest serving player, and also one of our top earners, Theo Walcott, looks set to be a peripheral bench-warmer this season unless Olivier Giroud suffers a long term injury. The England international has made it clear that he wants to be the main centre-forward, so it looks like Arsene Wenger has decided to punish [.
.......On the Arsenal bench of course! So for a change Arsene Wenger put Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and an unfit Alexis Sanchez in the Arsenal midfield, with Olivier Giroud as the target man in the middle. Of course I am very happy that Giroud scored an excellent goal against a top side like [.
BELIEVE IN MIRACLES by AD First of all this article is not in criticism or praise of anyone or Arsenal itself. Keeping in perspective the fact that only one game has been played in the league by Arsenal so far, I would like to suspend any reaction as yet. However, far be it for one [...]
There has been a lot of criticism for the Arsenal manager this week, hardly surprising really after all the great expectations carefully built up over the last eight months were left in a pile of rubble on the Emirates pitch on Sunday. But while the boss must take his fair share of the blame for [...
Sometimes I think Arsenal players just talk too much sometimes. You know what I mean? Like on here when JustArsenal readers start saying things like 'we're going to beat Monaco by four goals' or 'Newcastle will never come back from four goals down'. You think to yourself "you really shouldn't have said that.
We will have to wait and see just where the England international Theo Walcott plays most of his football for Arsenal this season, but the flying 26-year old forward has already made a good case for being able to play in the centre forward role as well as on either side of a front three. [...]
The rumours linking Arsenal with a big money bid for Real Madrid's Karim Benzema refuse to go away, despite Rafael Benitez stating categorically that the French international will not be leaving the Bernabeau this summer. Now a couple of Arsenal stars have been making their thoughts on the subject known, with Cazorla saying that he [.
Aaron Ramsey believes that the pressure of winning trophies is nothing new for him or Arsenal. The Wales international playmaker believes that the current Gunners squad can handle the expectations and win silverware. Ramsey is optimistic of a successful campaign and thinks that winning the season curtain-raiser this weekend would prove a point to everyone.
The Arsenal and Wales midfield star Aaron Ramsey sounds as if he really believes, like many Arsenal fans and football experts, that this could be the year for the Gunners. But there is one major problem that the current squad need to sort out in order to progress from two back to back FA cup [...]
This may be a little harsh on the Arsenal players Jack Wilshere and Mathieu Flamini, who in theory could form a third Arsenal central midfield of their own, but I think that there are two clear options for Arsene Wenger to select to start for the Gunners. I am assuming that what we have seen [...]
Ramsey's best role Part 1 by JC Before I begin the aim of this two part piece is not to claim that Arsenal don't need another defensively minded midfielder in our squad, as I too, think we are a quality midfielder short. More to evaluate one of our extremely talented midfielders and how to properly [.
It was brilliant for us all to watch Arsenal take apart the French Ligue 1 runners up yesterday, continuing the free scoring pre-season preparations with six unanswered goals. But it might not have been quite so enjoyable for the England international midfielder Jack Wilshere. The 23-year old was not even on the subs bench yesterday, [.
So the Ozil Rumour? Should we take the money. by ED So I don't know if you are aware of it or not but, according to various sources in the news Mesut Ozil, is the prime target for Juventus this transfer window... It seems so strange, this is the first time in a while our [...]
IS OUR CURRENT ARSENAL TEAM GOOD ENOUGH? by ICB Let us assume that Wenger sticks with what he's got and does not land another "opportunistic transfer" as Galen previously observed in his article. Is the team good enough? My answer is yes. but this depends on how LE PROF utilizes it. As we have observed [.
