Arsenal's days of allowing our big players to leave and join rivals is over as far as I'm concerned, but with a number of underachieving players linked with exits, I urge the club not to sell toany close rivals. Pep Guardiola has today been linked with a move to sign Theo Walcott this summer, but [.
We have all heard from players, including a wide number of Arsenal stars, after a poor performance or result that they have let the manager and the fans down. I have said it myself a number of times when trying to defend Arsene Wenger after a disappointment that it is not as if he sends [...]
Arsenal need all three points from the trip north to face Sam Allardyce and his Sunderland side today, in order to go back above Man City into third place. A point would not be a disaster as it would put us five points ahead of the Champions League chasing Manchester United, but to avoid a [...]
Well that was pretty easy to pick which of the Arsenal players performed best in our reasonably easy 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion last night, as not only did Alexis Sanchez score both of the goals but his bustling drive gave a much needed lift to the flat atmosphere inside the ground and offered [.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger today revealed that he is not looking to make major changes to his current squad before the new campagn, so we thought we'd look at the latest possible arrivals. Borussia Dortmund's Ilkay Gundogan is one of the players most heavily linked with a switch to a number of clubs, butis now [.
There have been loads of Arsenal transfer rumours lately that Arsene Wenger is going to have a clear out of underperforming Gunners this summer, in a final bid to win the Premiership in the last year of his current contract. To be honest it sounds very unlike Wenger as his favourite words are usually cohesion [.
Arsenal could be set to offload a number of key squad members this summer,while Dan Crowley is said toset for promotion to the senior squad. The DailyMail is claiming that 18 year-old Crowley could be set for a rapid rise into the first-team squad, having been sniped from Aston Villa's academy.
Arsene Wenger really is keen to stick to the winning formula that Arsenal have found either side of the recent international break, because despite him being fit enough for the squad last week and this week, the vastly experienced keeper Petr Cech has been left on the bench by the manager who has kept faith [.
I know that every single game is now a must-win fixture for Arsenal, but Saturday's visit to Upton Park is even more important that that! A win will not only keep us ahead of the chasing pack (which includes the Hammers) but will also keep us in the hunt for the title if Leicester start [...]

It may just be that the Arsenal injury list and the form of some of the Gunners who are fit have all but given Arsene Wenger no choice in his team selection recently. It will certainly be interesting to see what happens if and when Aaron Ramsey is fit again, which could be as soon [...]
The post Arsenal copying Leicester and Spurs to keep title race going?
So the Arsenal boss gave another of his many positive injury predictions before the current international break, and I seem to recall the Frenchman saying that at least two of the first team players currently on the Arsenal injury list would be back in action after the break and I am pretty sure the word [.
If things go the right way for Arsenal from now until the middlw of May, then Arsene Wenger and the players will have eight 'cup-finals' with which to save the season from being a disappointment or an unmitigated disaster depending on the strength of your views. It may be that Leicester and Tottenham, or one [.
Arsenal fans are more than used to seeing our injured stars taking ten times longer to recover than their predicted return dates, especially with Jack Wilshere who has been projected to return every month since Christmas, but the Gunners were certainly expecting our injury list to be reduced after this international break.
Aaron Ramsey is currently out injured, but Chris Coleman is determined to take him to the European Championships this summer. The midfielder has proved to be one of the key men in Wales international side, helping them to qualify for the upcoming tournament with two goals and two assists in the group stages.
In our quest for a third FA Cup trophy in a row, Arsenal have to eliminate Watford today at the Emirates, and we are hoping that the team is as clinical as they were against Hull City in midweek. In central midfield we saw Elneny and Flamini holding the fort, and our new boy was [...]
The post Arsenal to start with Elneny alongside Coquelin appeared first on Just Arsenal News.
Thanks for the memories Arsene but it's time to say goodbye! by KM I am so happy! And no, it's not because we won 4:0, which would usually be quite nice, but because the Arsenal fans who attended the game made me proud. After the game, a banner which was last seen in an away [...]
The Arsenal injury curse struck once more last night as Arsene Wenger saw no fewer than four Gunners join the already damaging injury list. Losing the three defenders Gabriel, Mertesacker and Monreal in one game just about sums up our luck and gives the boss a real problem for the FA cup quarter final against [.
Of course it would have been the target for Arsenal to come back from White Hart Lane with all three points and after a great start and taking the lead against Tottenham in the north London derby then there are bound to be some regrets, especially from the defensive midfielder Francis Coquelin who admitted that [.
Arsenal fans were understandably worried when we heard that the vastly experienced and talented keeper Petr Cech was ruled out for the next few weeks with a calf injury. But thanks to our second choice stopper David Ospina those fears were eased yesterday as the Colombian produced a fine display to stop Tottenham from winning [.
While Arsenal really needed to win this north London derby to get our title challenge firmly back on track, a draw was not the worst result and considering the circumstances I think it can be considered as a pretty good result. It could have been better and Arsene Wenger may well be cursing his luck, [.
Arsenal fans that have been following the fortunes of the club for a few years might not be too surprised to hear about the setback suffered by Santi Cazorla on his road to recovery, but I do think that we should be extremely worried about it, especially if The Mirror is right with their suggestion [.
That was the worst performance for a long time. And just to rub salt in the wounds, they scored two goals.
I've exhausted most of my anger already, but I thought our lack of intensity/focus was disgraceful. Our finishing got a bit better, but our application was gone. Look at Ramsey stroll around for their third goal.
Arsene Wenger gave a positive and encouraging update on the injury situation at Arsenal yesterday, reported by Arsenal.com, and as well as the very good news on the fitness of our centre backs Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel after both picked up knocks last week, the manage spoke about his only signing of the January transfer [.
Is it time for Arsenal fans to be worried? by briantole Where are our best players? Who is the one to stand up now? We have a lot to talk about after a very disappointing January and now not very good performances this February. Ever since the turn of the year Ozil has just capped [...]
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 [..
