They may sound like a strange comedy duo, but Juan Cuadrado and Zakaria Bakkali could soon be plying their trade on the Emirates pitch if the recent transfer rumours hold any water. And they would both bring pace and wing play to an Arsenal side that has really struggled for it since losing Theo Walcott [.
Why our midfielders are not performing by Big Gun Hi Gooners. Arsenal has been extremely lacklustre in the last couple of games. Our strikers and most especially our midfielders are under fire, particularly Jack Wilshere, Mikel Arteta and Mesut Ozil. We have, without a doubt, the best midfield in the BPL, so then why are [.
I am one of the Arsenal fans who has defended the contribution and ability of our main centre forward, Olivier Giroud, both last season and this one. And at times the big Frenchman has proved me right, especially at the start of the season when he looked like he would easily cruise to over 20 [...]
The case for Chamberlain to become a striker by Twig Which was Arsenal's most irresistible attacking display last season? That is probably subject to varying opinions, but I'm sure most of us would have the 7-3 drubbing of Newcastle as top of the pile. How about our best attacking display this season?
Predictable Arsenal? by J.T. If it wasn't already apparent by now, Arsene Wenger loves midfielders. More importantly he loves attacking midfielders. So when the opportunity for Arsenal to sign Mesut Ozil came up in the summer it was one that he thought he could not pass by. After the departure of Robin van Persie who [.
Repercussions of Our Transfer Failures by Uche Liverpool 4 0 Arsenal. That is the score line as I write this blog and Liverpool are absolutely destroying us at their home. I don't even know where to begin. I don't want to watch this game anymore but since I am bent on blogging about it, [...]
There is a lot of speculation and discussion at the minute about who is the favourite to win the Premier League title. Arsenal are still being largely ignored by the media, despite still being in top spot and having been there for the vast majority of the season so far. Chelsea's victory over Man City [.
Lack of transfer activity may cost Arsenal a great chance to win the title. by KM Hi Arsenal fans. Just a quick note on the City v Chelsea game. Mourinho again showed why he is such a master tactician, especially in the big games. He studied City's game, made an antidote and went on to [...]
Why people who criticise Özil don't understand football! by KJ Arsene Wenger managed to pull off one of the greatest transfer coups during the Premier league era when he signed Mesut Özil for £42.5 million from Real Madrid. It even eclipsed the signing of Bergkamp, that's how monumental it was. We signed the best number [.
Despite the Arsenal boss having praised the Bulgarian striker a few times in the past, it seems that Arsene Wenger did not think it was worth paying £1 million for Dimitar Berbatov. Because according to reports, the front man was offered to the Gunners as Fulham knew that he was not happy at Craven Cottage.
Should Arsenal try and loan Cristian Tello? by KJ As many of you will have seen, David Ornstein (extremely reliable journalist) has just confirmed that Arsenal will not be signing Julian Draxler this January because Wenger doesn't agree with Schalke's evaluation. What that means for any deal in the summer, I don't know.
Arteta: 'Arsenal Can Cope', But Can They? by AT Just when it seemed like Arsenal were getting close to something of a fully fit squad, the injury curse has struck again. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger revealed yesterday that Aaron Ramsey has suffered a setback in his recovery from injury and it is understood that the [.
There is no doubt that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would love to be in the Arsenal starting XI on Tuesday night. Not only is he desperate to get back into regular action after missing almost all of the season so far, the opponents are Southampton, where he spent 11 years and broke onto the English football scene [.
A lot of Arsenal fans, including myself, have been wondering what has been going on with Arsene Wenger and Lukas Podolski. While the team looked seriously short of options up front, with Theo Walcott and Nicklas Bendtner out of action, the Frenchman still seemed reluctant to play the German international, but he started him last [.
Podolski- A key man who can't be sold! by Rory Lukas Podolski came to Arsenal a year and a half ago, along with Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud. It was often emphasised how well the duo of Cazorla and Podolski were playing together last season. They even spoke of each other highly off the pitch [...
If the Arsenal boss had traveled to Spain to see a number of potential transfer targets, there can only be one player who really caught his eye. Arsene Wenger was reported by Goal.com and others to be at the Copa Del Rey clash between Levante and Barcelona and the young striker Cristian Tello bagged himself [.
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 [.
There is a new Arsenal transfer rumour doing the rounds today, or maybe it is better described as a new twist to an old rumour. It involves the possible signing of the 20-year old Schalke player Julian Draxler and suggests that the Gunners have offered the Bundesliga club around £20 million plus our German international [.
Gnabry happy to be in the team! by Ash Normally Arsenal tries to promote at least one player a year from first team reserves to the starting eleven with the likes of Jack Wilshere, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Carl Jenkinson having that experience in the past, and although the latter may not be fully integrated into [.
Is Santi Arsenal's main man in midfield? by Ash With Arsenal having so many talented midfield players it's difficult to see them as individual talents rather than a collective item. They all hold the same qualities that make them almost the perfect midfielder and together it makes the team almost unstoppable in the middle of [.
As the January transfer draws inexorably to a close, with absolutely no business being done by Arsenal Football Club yet, the average Gooner is going through his regular routine cycle between hope, panic, despair and resignation. Hopefully, though, it will end up in relief and optimism just as it did last summer when Wenger the [.
It seems as though Arsene Wenger agrees with the fans about the need to sign a quality striker in January, as long as he can find the right one available. But, unlike a large number of Arsenal fans, the manager does not think that current number one centre forward Olivier Giroud is not good enough. [.
Arsenal in For Yet Another Barcelona Starlet? by AT Following the unfortunate injury to Theo Walcott, it is no surprise that the Gunners are increasingly being linked with several strikers and wide forwards. The latest name to enter the fold is that of Barcelona starlet Christian Tello, with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger understood to be [.
3 Arsenal Topics to Discuss by Rabiul 1. Should Ozil be rested for a Couple of Matches in favor of Cazorla? 2. Should Walcott's replacement be signed? 3. Should a new striker be signed? One more match. One more win. 3 more points. Business as usual for Arsenal. But one must agree that there is [...]
Will Walcott Injury Provide Breakthrough For Young Gnabry? by AT Losing a player of the quality of Theo Walcott at such a pivotal time in the season is a bitter pill to swallow for any club. The Englishman was in fine goal-scoring form before suffering the knee injury in the FA Cup tie against Tottenham [.
This is not what you want to hear Arsenal fans, but Arsene Wenger is beginning to sound increasingly like a man who is ready to face the rest of the season without any new additions to his current Arsenal squad. The Frenchman has spoken a lot during the week about the ability of his players [...]
Wenger: Arsenal Can Cope in Absence of Injured Walcott by AT The biggest setback for Arsenal so far this season has undoubtedly been the injury to Theo Walcott. The Englishman suffered a very serious knee injury in the FA Cup victory over Tottenham Hotspur earlier in the month and will be out for at least [.
How do we integrate Chamberlain into the squad in the coming games? by KJ It's such a relief for Arsenal to have Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain back from injury, especially at a time where we've lost a very crucial player in Theo Walcott. With such a long lay-off, Chamberlain will need to be gradually introduced back into [.
Okay Arsenal fans, I am not saying that losing Theo Walcott for the rest of the season is not a massive blow, because it is. But there are extenuating circumstances and reasons for us not to panic too much. The main one of these is the impending return of young Welshman Aaron Ramsey. Don't forget, [.
You could not make it up Arsenal fans! Can you recall the Gunners ever having so many players out injured so consistently as Arsenal have had so far this season? There were battalions in the trenches at World War I that picked up less injuries. Anyway, with Theo Walcott ruled out for the rest of [...
Is Draxler really worth the touted £40 million? by Ash Unless you're staying away from the transfer speculation this January, then I'm pretty sure that as an Arsenal fan, you'll be aware that the Gunners are supposedly looking to sign Germany international starlet Julian Draxler. Draxler has been linked by many national newspapers and media [.
Serge Gnabry has not yet had a chance to play with his Arsenal team mates Per Mertesacker, Mesut Ozil and Lukas Podolski on the international stage. The 18-year old prodigy has played for Germany at under 16, under 17, under 18 and under 19 level, though, and if he continues with his great progress for [.
Arsenal did not start the season with as many options up front as most of their main Premier League rivals, but injuries to Nicklas Bendtner, Yaya Sanogo and Theo Walcott have left the Gunners worse off than when they started, despite the summer transfer window and the first two weeks of the winter one.
We all know that the priority for Arsenal in this January transfer window is a striker. Whether it be a player who can replace Theo Walcott while the England international recovers from his anterior cruciate ligament damage, or another player in the mould of Olivier Giroud. But we also know that Arsene Wenger has his [.
Wenger on Chambo by JMT With the departure of Theo Walcott recently to a lengthy injury, Arsenal's chances of capturing the Premier League for the first time in nine years have been hampered slightly. However it is exciting to see that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has come through his own personal battle with injury and is looking [.
When the terrible news came through this week about Theo Walcott and his six month spell on the sidelines with the dreaded Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury, I am sure I was not the only Arsenal fan to be instantly reminded of Eduardo. The Brazilian born forward was an integral part of the Arsenal side who [.
Oxlade Chamberlain is the star of the show! by Ash Arsenal normally has at least one young Gun to light up the league with their performances over the course of the season and this year it is no different. Originally we thought it was Aaron Ramsey, almost a reborn player coming back from a long [...]
Arsenal expects more from the Ox and so does he! by Ash If you weren't aware already, having been in a sensory deprivation chamber or lost in the desert, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain played a stunning role in the central of midfield for Arsenal in their 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon. The Gunners [.
Arsenal fans could be left in stunned disbelief if an aging Swedish midfielder is the only player to join the Gunners before the January transfer window slams shut and leaves us with a depleted and stretched squad while our main rivals have so many quality players they have to loan them out to other clubs.
You can't really get away with blips or slumps or off days when you hit the final furlong of a season in which you are challenging for something. Look at how we won the league in 2002 we got 13 straight wins from 10th February. In 1998, 13 wins and a draw between January and clinching the title.
