Even though Arsenal beat Chelsea yesterday to pick up a third trophy from our pre-season preparations, some Arsenal fans were left disappointed after Arsene Wenger declared in his post match interview, reported by the Arsenal website, that the transfer rumours linking Arsenal with the Real Madrid and France striker Karim Benzema are very unlikely to [.
BREAKING THE CHAIN: WALCOTT, STRIKERS, THE MOURINHO CURSE AND TROPHIES by Uche Isn't it strange how negativity just trails this Arsenal team wherever they go? Yet they keep their heads down and keep proving the doubters wrong. It is bewildering. They say they cannot win a trophy. They don't spend money.
Arsenal won the Community Shield yesterday and Jose Mourinho showed his true sulky self by throwing his losers medal into the crowd. Arsene Wenger could have gloated more but showed his class by letting the result speak for itself rather than Jose's histrionics in defeat... Petr Cech 8 Our superconfident stopper didn't have much [.
There is some good news for Arsenal fans in the shape of the Chelksea team, with their first choice centre forward Diego Costa missing out and being replaced by Loic Remy, because of a reported hamstring problem. But Arsenal have also been hit by an early injury to the unlucky Jack Wilshere who does not [.
The news of two new deals for Arsenal must have been received with mixed enthusiasm by the supporters; a mix of good and bad. Good, because, these deals are for those two players who are linked with interest from other clubs. But, there is nothing more to be happy about because we are not talking [..
Is Theo Walcott Arsenal's new striker? by JH With the confirmation that Theo has signed da ting, with a deal that locks him down for his best years at Arsenal and also puts him up with Sanchez and Ozil in terms of wages, do we the fans finally know who our new striker is? Over [...]
One of the best things about the current Arsenal side is the balance in it. For a long time we were too adventurous at the detriment to the defensive side of the game. And we simply did not have the right blend of players, not fit to play at least, that was need for the [...]
Arsenal´s message to rivals by Sam P This double deal by Arsenal Football Club could hardly have come at a better time to be honest. On the verge of the Gunners facing our main rivals for the Premier League, Chelsea, in the traditional curtain raiser to the season, Arsene Wenger is sending out a real [.

So to celebrate we have teamed up with JDSports Arsenal Page to give one of our lucky readers a new PUMA "Powered By Fans" 2015 Arsenal Home Shirt PLUS an exclusive JustArsenal T-Shirt. I'm [.
Arsenal won the Emirates Cup for the first time since the 2010-11 season with the only goal coming from Theo Walcott helping them beat Wolfsburg. The Emirates Stadium must have been filled with really happy supporters but the expectations would be to win more prestigious trophies. This is the second pre-season trophy of the summer [.
Arsene Wenger oversaw his side add another pre-season trophy with the Emirates Cup on Sunday. He then went on to confirm that the forward Theo Walcott, who incidentally was the goal scorer, is close to signing a new contract with the Gunners. The contract for the English forward expires at the end of next season [.
In yet another indication that Arsenal will not be buying a new striker, Wenger started Theo Walcott as centre-forward against Wolfsburg yesterday, and the Englishman scored the winning goal. I am now thinking that Walcott is waiting for Wenger to give him proof that he will not be bringing in more competition up front before [.
Although it was not as impressive in general for Arsenal yesterday, there were some good individual performances from players like Walcott, Akpom, Chamberlain and particularly young Reine-Adelaide but our best player for me was Jack Wilshere who was involved in most of our good moves and looks to be getting back to his best.
Perhaps it was a case of after the Lord Mayor's show for Arsenal today, although we should also give credit to our German opponents Wolfsburg who made it difficult for the Gunners from the off. Whatever the case, after the stunning six goal showing against Lyon yesterday, Arsenal struggled for the same fluency.
Arsene Wenger has gone with an almost completely different Arsenal starting line-up to the one that took the French club Lyon apart yesterday, with just our club record signing Mesut Ozil keeping his place. The manager must be very happy with the fitness of the German international to play him again so soon and he [.
After the Arsenal director Lord Harris dropped the bombshell today about Arsene Wenger being able to spend almost any amount he liked to bring in a big name player or players to the club, the football media is understandably full of talk about who the Frenchman should splash the cash on and a lot of [.
The Arsenal side is busy finishing off their engagements in Singapore after winning the Barclays Asia Trophy. At the same time, the rumour mill is busy churning stories and link ups on the activity at the Emirates Stadium. The latest speculation ties the towering Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko with a bid to sign him for [.
There are still a lot of Arsenal transfer rumours out there and a good proportion of them are linking us with various big name strikers around Europe. And while Arsene Wenger has been fairly quiet in the transfer market so far, with just the £10 million or so for Petr Cech spent so far, we [...]
Although the contract talks between Arsenal and the representatives of our England international Theo Walcott are still going on and may go on for some time, it appears to me that both sides want to get the deal done and the talks are just to agree the details. The striker no longer seems to be [...]
Some may not want to see it more than a training session but pre-season is an important start to any team. After all, this is the first time the whole Arsenal squad gets together before the new season and the manager tries different variations. To be frank, this is not the whole squad for the [...]
The Arsenal winger cum striker Theo Walcott has started the preseason in the same way he ended the last campaign, as he scored the opening goal against Everton yesterday. The England international scored a hat-trick against West Brom on the last day of the season, and then followed it up in the FA Cup Final [.
Hello Arsenal fans. Although it may have been one of the most inspid performances in his three years in north London yesterday, But I would still take our domination over and victory against Everton in a very positive way if I was him. Why you ask? Why? Alright then I´ll tell you. Do not let [...]
It was a very impressive performance all round from Arsenal to beat Everton and I could have picked a few Gunners as the Man of the Match, such as Ozil or Walcott but I think Cazorla edged it with his goal and two assists. Cech 7 Looked a bit nervous at start but made [...]
Arsenal legend Thierry Henry believes that Arsenal can give a fight to Chelsea for the Premier League title next season but only if they strengthen further. Arsene Wenger started the transfer window brightly by acquiring the services of Petr Cech from Chelsea. But, after that, there is a big lull at the Emirates Stadium while [.
IS OUR CURRENT ARSENAL TEAM GOOD ENOUGH? by ICB Let us assume that Wenger sticks with what he's got and does not land another "opportunistic transfer" as Galen previously observed in his article. Is the team good enough? My answer is yes. but this depends on how LE PROF utilizes it. As we have observed [.
It may have only been the second game of pre-season for Arsenal and although there was a piece of silverware on offer, you would say that this final against Everton was more about preparation for the serious business to come, it was very good to see the Gunners put on a very good performance. Arsene [.
Arsenal fans will finally get the chance to see the summer signing that we all hope will make the difference in our challenge to regain the Premier League title next season, after Petr Cech watched from the bench as the Gunners won the first match of pre-season to qualify for the final of the Asia [.
With Petr Cech being Arsenal's only arrival of this transfer window, all Gooners are impatiently waiting for some sign from Arsene Wenger that he is possibly targetting a new DM or superstriker, but the signals coming from Le Prof seem to indicate there will be no more new signings. In an interview on Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger had some words of encouragement today for the Arsenal fans that are desperately waiting for the Frenchman to pull his finger out and spend some money in the summer transfer window. The manager suggested that there may well still be a few arrivals and that the signing of Petr Cech did not spell [.
Having secured Petr Cech as part of Arsenal's new spine for next season, Gooners everywhere expected Wenger to follow this up with a new DM to compete with Francis Coquelin and definitely a new striker to give Olivier Giroud a rest up front, but now Wenger has revealed why he is in no rush to [...]
TRANSFER DILEMMA: TOP QUALITY PLAYERS AND GAME TIME by Uche Hello there friends. I am sorry you are going to have to read yet another transfer related article that does not announce the signing of a new player for Arsenal. But something has been bugging me and I will like to share it with you. [...]
I get the fact that a lot of Arsenal fans are still not convinced by our France international centre forward Olivier Giroud and think that Thierry Henry was right to say that the Gunners could not win the Premier League with the big man leading the line. But even our club record signing felt the [...
It Will Be Criminal If Wenger Fails to Complete the Job. By Galen For the past 3 years Arsene Wenger has been building and shaping a title winning team. For the first time the Arsenal fans and the players have all started to feel like we are close to something magical. But just like in [...]
There is a theory, and it is something that the Arsenal manager himself alluded to before the end of last season, that the Gunners did not really need to add any new players during the current summer transfer window. Judging by the way Arsenal performed in the second half of last season, you could say [.
The Arsenal squad are due to arrive in Asia next Monday, ready to participate in the Barclays Asian trophy with a game against the Singapore select XI team on the Wednesday followed by another game against either Stoke City of Everton to determine the winner, assuming that the Gunners win our first game of course.
What is Arsenal's best XI? by Sam P There is not much longer for the Arsenal fans to wait, and how glad are we all about that? In less than two weeks, the Gunners will run out for the first game of pre-season against a Singapore select XI in their national stadium, so I expect [...]
Continuing my analysis of the current Arsenal squad by JA FORWARDS The forward line at Arsenal, isn't as dangerous as those at other teams. Considering there's not many to talk about, we'll use categories like in the goalkeeping and defenders sections. MOVEMENT/POSITIONING; for a striker, movement without the ball might be even more important than [.
Arsenal do not NEED any more players by Sam P First of all Gooners, I do not think that the signing of Petr Cech from Chelsea will be the last piece of transfer business that Arsenal get done before the summer transfer window closes in about two months. But I do think that Arsene Wenger [...]
Statistics and Econometrics could be very Misleading By Galen. I will first of all start by saying congrats to JS for the great reserch he made, and for gathering all the statistical evidence to come up with a solid case for Giroud. My argument is that for the first time in the last 10 years [...]
There has been quite a lot said about the former Arsenal star Dennis Bergkamp in recent days, because the weekend marked the 20th anniversary of our incredibly talented Dutch master signing for the Gunners. The praise for the forward has been fulsome, with another former star Paul Merson going as far as telling Sky Sports [.
