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.

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 [...]
What happened Arsenal? I have two days off and everything goes pear-shaped. Stoke, really? Actually, to be honest I am not that surprised. They are always a tough team to play at the Britannia Stadium and they are always up for a game against Arsenal more than any other. The upshot of it all, however, [.
At times last season, it really seemed as if Arsene Wenger's days in charge of Arsenal Football Club were numbered. The fantastic finish to the season, which saw the Gunners catch up with and overtake north London rivals Tottenham, brought the fans back on side, as did the promise from Ivan Gazidis that the club [.
There is a lot of nervousness among Arsenal fans at the minute. Hardly surprising really, with pundits like Michael Owen and Jamie Redknapp constantly predicting doom, disaster and a sudden slide down the Premier League. Tough fixtures are coming, they say, and how will Arsenal's weakling squad devoid of talent possibly cope with this?
So what is realistic for Arsenal now? by gameruk Okay Gooners. like many of you I am not happy and in fact a little embarrassed at the way Arsenal have handled themselves in this transfer window, once again failing to bring in a big player they chased in the form of Draxler. Whether that is [...]

According to almost any pundit who you care to listen to, Arsenal have as much chance of winning the Premier League title this season as Sam Allardyce does of being given the Real Madrid job. They have been saying this all season, however, and their reasons have all come and gone, with Arsenal stubbornly remaining [.
We all know that lots of TV pundits and football experts just cannot bring themselves to see Arsenal as genuine title contenders. It is not necessarily due to any anti-Arsenal bias either, because most people really admire what Arsene Wenger has done and the attractive form for football the Gunners play.
What can we expect from Arsenal in 2014? by Ash 31st December 2013. Hasn't the year gone quick? Another season has begun and reached its midway point and for the first time in years, success seems to be an option for Arsenal. However without getting too carried away, the next calendar year is sure to [.
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 [.

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 [...]

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.

The torrential rain that has blighted the Asia Trophy in Hong Kong hasn't all been doom and gloom.

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.
