Arsenal forward Theo Walcott has stated that Olivier Giroud is annoyed at his lack of first-team action. The Frenchman was injured at the start of the Premier League campaign, and manager Arsene Wenger opted to field a makeshift forward in Alexis Sanchez in the role, which has worked out extremely well.
Even before Alexis Sanchez made the game safe for Arsenal on Sunday afternoon, with a late goal to make it 3-1 to the Gunners after a tough test against AFC Bournemouth, I would have made the Chile international star my Man of the Match, even though he did not have his usual impact as he [...]
The big question on the lips of most Arsenal fans this week as we prepare for the big Premier League clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford today was about the fitness of our Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez and whether or not Arsene Wenger would risk him after the injury concern surrounding him during the [.
The last time Arsenal went to Old Trafford for a Premier League match we were full of optimism as Manchester United were not only struggling in general for form under Louis van Gaal but were going through a bit of an injury crisis. The Gunners head there this weekend with a similar sort of situation [.
Arsene Wenger may have an Arsenal injury list to cope with, including two of the forwards in his squad DannY Welbeck and Lucas Perez, but that does not necessarily mean that the boss will have to field a weakened Arsenal side when we go to Old Trafford for the big Premier League match of the [...]
Arsenal loanee Jack Wilshere has been selected to make his return to international action next week. England are set to take on Scotland at Wembley on Friday evening in the World Cup 2018 group qualifiers, before taking on Spain in a friendly match the following Tuesday evening. The squads have now been announced for the [.
I suppose we should have known that it would not last, as every season Arsenal seem to be plagued with much more than our fair share of bad luck. It just felt for a while as though this time might be different, even though we had the defensive injury crisis at the start of the [...]
Arsene Wenger had been preparing the Arsenal players for a tough test against Ludogorets and it was just as well, as the visitors started well and could have caught us out if we had not been ready for them. We had already seen a couple of big defensive moves from Koscielny and Cazorla in the [...]
Both of these two Arsenal stars have played their part in getting the Gunners back on track after a disappointing start to the season, in terms of the Premier League at least as we lost to Liverpool at home before drawing away to Leicester City. They may be operating at different ends of the pitch [.
Arsenal's Theo Walcott has hailed the all-important three points, despite a less than impressive performance in earning them. The Gunners looked to be having an easy time of it in the early exchanges of the game, but after the England international put us 2-0 up with a brace, Swansea suddenly came to life.
Football managers and players are often heard to say that they are not really interested in any personal accolades, as long as the team is doing well, and it is no different at Arsenal. Just recently we saw Arsene Wenger attempting to play down all the talk about his record of spending 20 years as [.
There has definitely been a change in the approach of Arsenal in recent years, with Arsene Wenger responding to the criticism that he was a bit too one dimensional with his tactics and that he had no plan B. The Frenchman and the Gunners adapted and became harder to beat in the big games and [...]
After a strong start to the season from Arsenal and in particular for Theo Walcott, the winger has managed to edge his way back into the national team squad with England. The player showed his part in the team against Malta yesterday, but he has also said some rather worrying things whilst on media duty [.
Arsenal fans need to get busy on their computers because the public will get a say in who wins these three Premier League awards for the month of September, although all 20 club captains and a number of Premier League experts have their say as well. After a shaky start to the season the Gunners [...]
We Arsenal fans have almost two weeks before we can see our beloved Gunners back in action when the new Swansea manager brings his team to north London. Until then we have some international action to slake our thirst for football and there are 12 Arsenal players who could be involved for their countries.
A brilliant first half saw Arsenal win this home Champions Leagure game against Basel by 2-0 with both goals from Walcott in the first half. We had a host of chances and some very good ones. We could and probably should have scored a lot more but it was still an imprerssive showing and a [...]
This is not the first time that Arsenal on the whole or individual Arsenal players in particular have come in for criticism for what is deemed by some to be over celebrating a win that does not actually give us a trophy. It happened again this week. Feelings were clearly running high after the Gunners [.
The decision about which Arsenal star to give the Man of the Match award to was an especially hard one this weekend after a brilliant team performance saw the Gunners shoot down Chelsea. The TV pundits gave it to Alex Iwobi who had a huge impact but them so did Walcott and he added a [...]
This was almost the perfect way for Arsenal to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Arsene Wenger taking over as our manager. It was a brilliant perfoirmance from the players in the sort of style that has become trademark of Arsenal in the Wenger era. Three good goals and a clean sheet to boot to stick [.
We do not yet know if the Arsenal and France international forward Olivier Giroud will be fit enough to start the Premier League clash with Chelsea this weekend, if you even believe that it is this mystery toe problem keeping him out of the side in the first place. If he is fit to play, [...]
After Arsenal had doubled the lead early in the second half and with Hull City down to 10 men the Gunners were on easy street but a Snodgrass penalty conceded by Cech with around 15 minutes left put the result into doubt, until Alexis Sanchez kept a cool head to smash a third after Walcott's [...]
With Arsenal facing our third match in a week and desperately needing all three points from today's away match at Hull City, Arsene Wenger would have wanted as many first team players available as possible, so it will have been a big blow to his plans to lose Olivier Giroud. The France international forward was [.
With Arsenal having made a sluggish start to the Premier League season and already being five points off the pace set by the league leaders Man City, we simply cannot afford to drop any more points in this weekend's away game with Hull City. And even though the Tigers have started well themselves and are [.
The Arsenal forward was the only one of the current Arsenal team included in the first England international squad selected by the new man in charge of the three lions. He did not start but will be pleased to have made an impact after Sam Allardyce brought him on for Raheem Sterling with 20 minutes [.
Jamie Carragher has told Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott that they should consider moves away from the club, as Jack Wilshere has done for the season. Wilshere has joined Bournemouth on loan for the rest of the term, and will be hoping to get his career back on track having had a large number of [.
It is very early days in the Premier League season, of course, and Arsenal need to back up what we did at the weekend after winning our first game away to Watford, but it definitely looks like the weekend has done the players the power of good, and has restored some swagger and a lot [...]
There will have been a few members of the Arsenal squad waiting for the announcement of the first England sqaud chosen by the new manager with more hope than expectation, especially as Sam Allardyce is thought to have something of a grudge against the Gunners as well as his style of football being quite different [.
Even this early in the new Premier League season a lot of people are looking at this Arsenal match away to Watford as a must win game. THere is still plenty of time for the Gunners to mount a proper challenge for the Premier League title, but after we gained just a single point from [...]
Arsenal do have good striking options! by Sam P. There is a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth coming from the Arsenal fans at the minute, partly due to the fact that Arsene Wenger has once again been more careful with the transfer spending than all the other challengers for the Premier League title, [.
He may be playing mind games in order to keep his opposite number Claudio Ranieri guessing about which Arsenal players will be lining up to face the reigning Premier League champions today, but Arsene Wenger was reported on the Arsenal website this week stating that he would definitely not bring all three of the late [.
Arsenal were made to pay the ultimate price for not making the most of a dominant first half performance, because Liverpool drew level on the stroke of halftime withg some help from a soft free kick from Referee Michael Oliver. The second half went badly wrong with three quick Liverpool goals. Arsenal hit back with [.
Arsenal could really do with making a good start to this latest chase for the Premier League title, especially after both Manchester United and Man City got off to winning starts this weekend, but the squad situation is far from ideal for Arsene Wenger so the schedule of us facing Liverpool today and then Leicester [.
I don't think I am taking too much for granted when I assume that two of the Arsenal front three that starts our first EPL game of the season against Liverpool will be Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott, as the Chilean is our star performer and most likely game winner in the absence of Mesut [...]
Of course we always want the best from the Arsenal players, whether they are playing for club or country. Not only does it give us an interest in the international matches not involving our own country, it is interesting to see how each Gunner does with other players around them. When it is your own [.
It must have been a huge relief for Arsene Wenger as well as for the Arsenal and England international star Theo Walcott when he broke his pre-season duck against the Norwegian side Viking FK on Friday, as the manager is going to be without his main centre forward Olivier Giroud for at least the first [.
So that is that for Arsenal's pre-season schedule, with less than a week to go before the Premier League season kicks off. Arsene Wenger and the coaching staff will be working hard with the players over the next few days to get them ready for the visit of Liverpool but I am sure that the [...]
It might seem a bit churlish for me to question the value of this pre-season game for Arsenal, after eight goals and a clean sheet for the Gunners seems to be just what the doctor ordered as we get ever closer to the start of a crucial campaign, but I have to wonder whether a [...]
Arsenal are reported to be preparing Alexis Sanchez to play as the central striker against Liverpool next weekend. The Gunners have been actively pursuing a striker to add to their squad this summer, but have so far fallen flat on their face, and are now looking at their options. Alexis Sanchez is now claimed to [.
You can look back at the last few seasons and point to things that went wrong for Arsenal, such as the injury problems that hit our key players including Theo Walcott, Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey at the same time after the Gunners were looking good to finally reclaim the Premier League title. Injury problems, [.
Theo Walcott has finally given up reservations of becoming an out-and-out striker, by requesting to be considered a winger at Arsenal once again. The former Southampton youth product joined the club back in 2006, and there had been reserved hopes that he could follow Thierry Henry in transitioning from a winger into a striker.
