I am sure that Arsene Wenger does not want his Arsenal players to start thinking about winning the Premier League title in May. He will want them all to keep their eye on the prize, yes, in order to spur them on, but they cannot start looking any further than the next game. So it [...]
Following Arsenal's flying start to the new season, there is a very optimistic and confident mood among those involved with the club. Although there are still many critics complaining about squad depth, there is a genuine belief among most supporters that this will be the year that things change for the good at the Emirates.
It seems as though the Arsenal midfielder and stand-in captain Mikel Arteta does not lack any confidence in his young Arsenal side. The Spaniard seems to be of the opinion that the squad he currently leads is very capable of challenging for silverware this season. Arsenal have not won a trophy since clinching the 2005 [.
Fabio Capello and Jurgen Klopp have proved that they know what it takes to win, so it is great to hear their thoughts on Arsenal. Both managers have been talking about the Gunners, and they are seriously impressed by what they have seen so far this season. So much so that both men have declared [...]
Per Mertesacker turned 29 a couple of weeks ago, and the Arsenal defender is understandably impatient to add more silverware to his personal trophy cabinet. Playing for one of the best and biggest clubs in the world, as well as one the most successful nations in football, the German international has every reason to expect [.
Arsenal at the Top... Whats changed? by MC So it seems that many footballing fans, pundits, experts and so on are somewhat astounded to see Arsenal at the top of the Premier League. Although without trying to get ahead of ourselves, I have taken the liberty to highlight exactly what has changed over the last [.
I have pinched myself so many times this morning that my arm is starting to look like a footballer's sleeve tattoo. Arsenal fans are not used to this, but things really are going as well as they have for many a long year. The fact that Arsenal are sitting proudly at the top of the [...]
Important win against WBA by KM A lot of arsenal fans were actually fine with Arsenal dropping out of the league cup in the first round against W.B.A. I believe that's mainly because we really looked tired against Stoke and some players needed a rest, but there's more to this win than just good experience [.
There is a lot of pressure on the shoulders of Olivier Giroud at the minute. The French international is a big, strong lad though, and I am sure he can handle it. However, being the only fit striker at the club, along with a busy fixture list, does increase the risk of fatigue, burn-out or [...]
Wilshere says Arsenal won't get ahead of themselves! by Ash Arsenal have broken new club records with our away form, being the best winning streak of some time, and if it hadn't been for our slip up against Aston Villa on the opening day of the season, with a little help from the referee, then [...]
And another BIG thank you to Audi Whetstone for making one of my dreams cone true today pic.twitter.com/6OX6OOw0 Wojciech Szczesny (@13Szczesny13) October 10, 2011 Wojciech Szczesny says Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was right to leave him out of the team last season. The Poland international was dropped in favour of compatriot Lukasz Fabianski, with [.
The most expensive footballer of all-time, Gareth Bale, says he would have left Tottenham for Real Madrid even if his former club had qualified for the Champions League last season. Spurs were pipped to fourth place and Champions League football by north London rivals Arsenal last term. But Bale says he would have still left [.
The in-coming Mesut Ozil has already destroyed Arsenal's record transfer fee and our wage structure by earning a massive £140,000 a week over the next five years, and although he admits that he didn't expect to be leaving Real Madrid this early in his career, now he is here he intends to help us break [.
Former Arsenal player and now TV pundit Alan Smith has been talking to the media about the current Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, and he believes the Frenchman should go at the end of the season if the club once again fails to pick up silverware.
I am always surprised by the negative attitude that many Arsenal fans still adopt towards Theo Walcott. The 24-year old was, after all, the club's top scorer in the Premier League and in all competitions last season. I understand that people think he should have progressed faster, and perhaps further, by now, but he is clearly one of the most effective players at the club.
Dear Arsenal fans, amidst all the transfer shenanigans there was talk of Arsene Wenger possibly extending his contract with Arsenal by another 2 to 3 years. I would like us to look at the pros and cons of Arsene wearing the crown for a continued period.
We are all wrong, and we are all right. By Gunner Gyz
The tone of this site, particularly the comment section has been doom and gloom lately. Does this mean Arsenal is in a downward spiral? Maybe yes, but probably not. Let's take a quick look at why you guys are right to be concerned, and why some AKB's are right to tell you to sit down.
Walcott happy with the improvements to his game! by Ash
Theo Walcott has been talking a lot about his Arsenal career in recent weeks, as well as the clubs ambitions, and he continued in that style by speaking with reporters yesterday about how he feels he has improved his overall game.
The longer it takes, the more difficult it will be! By JL
In my last article, I tried to point out that quality signings MIGHT not arrive at the Emirates and Arsene COULD subsequently depart the Emirates. I hate this feeling but I can't help but to think our suffering days are very much with us.
What would be a good season for Arsenal? by Dave G
For the first time in a while, we are experiencing a summer transfer window without the usual panic and trepidation over which of our stars we might lose before the start of the new season. We have the opportunity to build on last year's squad and performances, and by all accounts we actually have some money to spend.
Yeah! fine. agreed. No doubt Arsenal haven't won any trophy since almost a decade, no doubt we have failed to sign top players, no doubt we have lost our reputation as great passers of the ball and no doubt we have to be the joke of our Man Utd friend s- but my fellow Gunners, this year is going to be ours, by hook or by crook!
After years of winning just about any tournament you cared to put in front of them, Spain faltered in the Confederations Cup as they lost in the final to hosts Brazil. Chelsea striker Fernando Torres discovered that personal achievements like the Golden Boot feel a bit hollow if you haven't won the competition as well.
Just about everybody and their Grandmother knows about Arsenal's trophy drought. It's been 8 long years since that FA Cup win in 2005. Since then the club has been in a Champions League final which they lost against the mighty Barcelona and a League Cup final which they lost against the uh, mighty Birmingham City.
There is no way that Arsenal will sell the France international centre back Laurent Koscielny if they do not want to, because the 27-year old was tied down to a new long term contract last summer that keeps him at the Emirates for another four years.
That does not seem to have put off some of Europe's top clubs though.
Olivier Giroud may be waiting with a touch of trepidation to see which new players are signed for Arsenal this summer, but the French striker is fully aware of how important the season coming up is for him, for Arsenal and for his national side France. If things go according to his plans, it will be a fantastic year for all three.
Jose Mourinho says winning the Champions League will spur Chelsea on to more successes. The Special One claims that the Big Ears trophy is not one you can once and then move on. And he's speaking from personal appearance. He said: "For me the important thing is that Chelsea had a dream and the dream [.
Marouane Fellaini says he has joined Manchester United because he wants to win trophies. The Belgium international was aware that former club Everton were keen for him to stay. But after five years at Goodison Park the 25-year-old felt it was time to move on to pursue his ambitions of winning silverware and playing in [.
David Moyes picked up his first trophy as Manchester United manager in a routine in over Wigan in the Community Shield at Wembley this afternoon. Robin Van Persie scored both goals as the champions secured a 2-0 win over the Latics. Last season's top scorer headed in the opener before securing victory with a deflected [.
We reported earlier that Tottenham manager Andre Villas Boas had revealed the club is in talks with Gareth Bale about a new contract. Now, here's video from a Hong Kong press conference of Villas Boas reiterating that point. He said: "We understand that we are speaking with his agent about possible improvements to his contract, [.
The torrential rain that has blighted the Asia Trophy in Hong Kong hasn't all been doom and gloom. No, Manchester City's players used the waterlogged conditions to their advantage to hold a Klinsmann dive competition. Kitman Chappy was up first, and he put on quite a show. Captain Vincent Kompany and keeper Joe Hart then [.
New Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says his side play better when they are under pressure. Speaking after a 1-0 win over South China in the Asia Trophy, the Chilean said the result didn't matter to him. His only concern was that City's players continue to improve on their previous pre-season outings.
Spurs boss Andre Villas Boas has reiterated the club's determination to keep hold of Gareth Bale, saying the club is counting on him. Speaking from Hong Kong ahead of the Premier League Asia Trophy, he said: "I don't want to become repetitive after what I have been telling you last season and what I have [.
Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has confirmed the signing of Nacer Chadli. Speaking from Hong Kong ahead of the Barclays Premier League Asia Trophy, Villas Boas said that a deal had been finalised for the FC Twente winger.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is planning to give Gareth Bale the schizophrenic treatment if you believe today's papers. The Daily Mirror reports that Levy is fed up with the speculation and the Bale camp's agitating over suggestions that the chairman has reneged on a promise to sell him if they failed to qualify for the [.
Gareth Bale is in talks with a view to signing a new contract at Spurs, according to manager Andre Villas Boas. The Welshman has been the subject of intense interest from Real Madrid this summer. But Villas Boas is hopeful that Bale will agree a new deal at White Hart Lane. Speaking from Hong Kong, [.
The injury that has ruled Gareth Bale out of Tottenham's friendly against Sunderland is merely a cover story as he forces through a transfer to Real Madrid, according to a Spanish newspaper. Marca irked Spurs supporters with yesterday's splash claiming that Bale had agreed personal terms with Real. They've now followed that up with a [.
In spite of his doubters, transfer market struggles and a loss to Valencia in Rio Ferdinand's testimonial two days earlier, David Moyes won the Community Shield with Manchester United in his first try, beating Wigan 2-0. Yes, it was just a glorified friendly against the relegated FA Cup winners, but for a man whose only previous silverware came when he won the old Second Division title with Preston North End in 2000, a trophy is a trophy.
Ex-Liverpool goalkeeper Diego Cavalieri has reportedly left his wife after she spoke to the press about a naked picture of him.
