Every time Arsenal faced a Big Team last season, they were generally embarrassed by the opponents, especially when Chelsea beat us 6-0 in Arsene Wenger's 1000th game in charge. It seems that that has spurred Wenger to fortify the team, and yesterday's win over Man City has given Wenger belief that Arsenal can now compete [.
I might be jumping the gun a bit here, but after a 5-1 win in the first game, Arsenal are nailed on to win the Emirates Cup this weekend. With a point for every goal scored, the Gunners sit on eight points, with Benfica on just one and Valencia and our opponents today, Monaco, on [...]
There is a lot to be said for the impact that a good team morale can have on the performances of the players, both as individuals and as a collective unit, so the fact the Gunners' new signing Alexis Sanchez seems to be creating the same sort of buzz around the club as the arrival [...]
It is not long now, Arsenal fans, until the Gunners are back in the action. In four weeks time, we will already have had the Emirates Cup, with games against Benfica and AS Monaco at the Emirates stadium. Then Arsene Wenger takes his Arsenal team to Wembley for the Community Shield against Man City before [.
It was one of the many big blows that Arsenal had to cope with last season, when our German international striker Lukas Podolski picked up a hamstring injury in just his second competitive game of the season, against Turkish club Fenerbahce in the Champions League play-offs. The prolific striker had already bagged a couple of [.
Don't panic Arsenal fans. There is no imminent danger of the Gunners losing their star man Aaron Ramsey. The young Welshman has been with us for six years now and signed a bumper new contract just a couple of months ago to keep him at the Emirates for the next five years. So why bring [...]
Now that Arsene Wenger has finally, officially put his signature on the new Arsenal contract, Gooners can relax, or worry, about what the future holds for the club. After all the will he, won't he, should he, could he speculation, the players and fans know that the next three years, and the success or failure [.
Arsene finally discovers that winning formula! Over the years, I have been negative on the outlook for Arsenal Football Club, most notably under the guidance of the clubs most successful manager, Arsene Wenger. After the stellar signing of signing of Mesut Ozil on deadline day, I was optimistic that this was the season for Arsenal [.
Maybe it is my memory playing tricks on me, because it is a long time since Arsenal won their last trophy, not including the Emirates cup or the Wenger trophy of course, but it seemed to me that there was a lot more emotion than usual from the Prof. It looked like there was as [...]
What cannot Kill ya, Will only make ya Stronger Arsenal fans by Popeye786Sailor ET 108` Giroud's back heel to Ramsey and it looks like Ramsey is going to find a way through the Hull defense and oh man, he scores a killer. Arsenal are on course to go back to glory days, thus ending the [...]
Did you really think it would be easy Arsenal fans? The Gunners had been talking all week about coping with the pressure and learning from the mistakes made against Birmingham City at Wembley three years ago. But that failure in the league cup was always going to increase the pressure on this current crop of [.
There have been some suggestions in the media that Arsenal are not giving their FA cup final opponents the respect they should. I feel that most of the media would love it if the Gunners slipped up. It would give them lots of things to write about and would enable them to keep banging on [...]
Mesut Ozil has already played a significant part in Arsenal reaching the FA cup final and having a fantastic opportunity to get the trophy that could lead to a new era of Gunners glory. Before he picked up an injury away to Bayern Munich, the German international signed off with the crucial opening goal and [.
Things seem to be on the up for Arsenal. Now the sting of seeing the Premier League title challenge falter after a fantastic start has eased off a bit, we are looking ahead to a Wembley final with a great chance to put the silverware stress to one side and lead to some great years [...]
I don't even want to think about what will happen if Hull City repeat the feat of Birmingham City in 2011 by denying Arsenal against all odds and beating us in a Wembley final. We know it could happen though and, according to vatious reports in the media, it could have big repercussions. Some people [.
It is a noble tradition in football, in England at least, that almost all of the neutral fans will support the under dog, especially in a game like the FA cup final. So you would think that Arsenal fans would be the only people wanting the Gunners to get a victory over Hull City at [...]
The subject of Arsenal, the trophy drought and the shock defeat by Birmingham City in our last major final was bound to come up, and will do many times before Arsenal run out on to the Wembley turf on Saturday. And it is no surprise that Arsene Wenger is not all that keen on focusing [...]
It appears as though the FA cup semi-final was a bit of a watershed moment for Arsenal. The nerves were very apparent against Wigan Athletic at Wembley, but the loads showed great character and eventually blasted through the penalty shoot out. Club captain Thomas Vermaelen played in that game and the Belgian defender reckons that [.
It's alright Arsenal fans, I have not gone bonkers mental, at least I don't think I have. When the doctors come round next I'll ask them. But I do have a reason for thinking that Arsenal could actually do with Everton getting a win over Man City at Goodison Park on Saturday. First of all, [...]
It might seem strange, given the strained nature of the relationship between Samir Nasri and the Arsenal fans, but the Frenchman will be fully rooting for Arsenal to beat Hull City at Wembley on May 17th and win the FA cup. Why? Because Nasri feels it is the least that Arsene Wenger deserves. The Man [.
A lot of Arsenal fans are not too keen, to say the least, on the Man City midfielder Samir Nasri and he is well aware of it. I am not going to go too much into the reasons for that now. The France international does still, however, profess to have feelings about his former club, [...]
We heard this week that the Arsenal manager had met with the French football agent Stephane Courbis, and I hope that Mr. Wenger was at his charming best and had a very nice bottle of Bordeaux waiting at the perfect temperature for the meeting, because Courbis is the agent of Laurent Koscielny and Serge Aurier.
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 [...]
Win or lose, Wenger must go by Twig Arsenal face Wigan today in what promises to be one of the most important games for Arsene Wenger in his Arsenal career. Arsenal is no doubt the favourite for this tie given that Wigan is a "small" club and is not one of the jinxed trio of [...]
Why fourth place finish and a FA cup trophy might just be a lifeline for Wenger! by Madhav For the last two months Arsenal have been struggling to gain any sort of momentum. With the 6-0 and the 5-1 losses to our rivals, it was clear that we had lost our chance for the premier [...]
We have to stay positive! by D.A. It's safe to say that it's not easy being an Arsenal fan. As well as experiencing the many highs of this season, we've also endured the lows. We now find ourselves precariously close to 5th spot, when only a couple of months ago, we were flying high at [...]
Wenger's future â€“ D-day approaches Arsenal's familiar end-of-season capitulation means the focus has switched from a possible title challenge to boss Arsene Wenger's future, with the Frenchman yet to sign a new contract. Wenger intimated just last month that he would be prepared to commit himself to a fresh deal at the Emirates but it [.
Wenger should wave goodbye once and for all by lloydschatz Arsene Wenger will reach an incredible milestone this weekend when his Arsenal side takes on Chelsea. Wenger will be taking charge of his 1000th game as Arsenal manager, something that probably will never be matched at the club and a Premier League record only bettered [.
As tributes pour in to Arsenal Football club from all over the football world on the eve of the 1000th game of Arsene Wenger's career as the most successful manager in the club's history, there is an elephant in the room, the trophy room to be exact. The media have, in recent years, been as [...]
Flamini targeting FA Cup success! by Ash The FA Cup has often been sorted as a very predominant trophy to attain in English football and is certainly still the big trophy out of the two domestic knockout competitions in England. The Capital One cup attracts a crowd but deep down, it holds no speciality, often [.
Samir Nasri may not be the most loved former Arsenal player around, but he still has some close ties to the club, especially with his compatriot and former boss Arsene Wenger. He may have left Arsenal because of the lack of silverware, although a huge increase in wages might have helped as well, but he [.
Why Wenger needs to accept our limitations and prioritise the FA cup by KJ After the disappointing loss to Stoke, Arsenal are now hoping to get a win against Everton at the weekend to ensure we don't let this slide of 2 wins in 6 games continue. To do this, we will need to put [...]
The Emirates is truly awesome By AondoaverK Hi Arsenal fans. Saturday was not a very good day was it? I missed watching the Stoke game on Television, holed up at, of all places, Stamford bridge. If I say I wasn't feeling dejected, I would be lying. There was this feeling of something slipping away. And [.
It is hardly surprising that Arsene Wenger was not in the best of moods after his Arsenal side lost a crucial game in the race for the Premier League. And the fact that the Frenchman was not very pleased with the tough tactics of Stoke and the leniency of the referee will not come as [...]
They still have to keep their eye on the prize and put in the effort needed, but everyone connected with Arsenal should be feeling good today. The battle for the fourth Premier League spot is now looking like a one-horse race, and the jockey is wearing red with white sleeves. I wrote an article the [.
Four months or so ago, when Arsenal were flying high in the Premier League and leading the Champions League group of death, the question of whether Arsene Wenger should be given a new contract would have brought incredulous stares and accusations of being a spud from most Gooners. But times change. As is proved by [.
Wigan may be the underdogs of this game but the pressure is certainly on Arsenal, who need to end what will otherwise be 9 years without a major trophy. Almost a decade ago Arsenal won the FA Cup with that famous penalty shoot out with Manchester United, this time however, our opponents Wigan Athletic don't [.
Why Ramsey will win us silverware this season by KJ Most Arsenal fans will be on a high at the moment, not because of Saturday's result but because of yesterday's result. With Wigan knocking out Manchester City, there is a massive chance for Arsenal to finally end their trophy drought with two Championship teams and [.
