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.
We already know who will definitely not be in the Arsenal XI that will start the pre-season match in the United States against an All-Star MLS team in the early hours of tomorrow, with Arsene Wenger having to do without a number of his key first team players for one reason or another. So the [...]
It may have been different if not for the injury and fitness problems suffered by some of the Arsenal players, but this summer's Euro 2016 tournament did not see as many Gunners involved as we would have expected, with England especially light on Arsenal stars. The only Gunner that Roy Hodgson did take was Jack [.
If you did not know, Arsenal fans, the first match of our pre-season schedule will take place against the French club Lens tonight and you can watch the game as it is being streamed live on the Arsenal website and they also have an app so make sure you go to Arsenal.com and are ready [...]
There are a few bones of contention among the Arsenal fanbase, with the perennial argument between the Wenger Out Brigade and the Arsene Knows Best faction usually the biggest of them all. For the last few years, though, this has been given a close run by the debate over our strikers. The Chile international Alexis [.
Walcott assured of a starting role at Arsenal! Despite all the rumours surrounding incoming players and who may be leaving the Emirates this summer, one player who's future remains up in the air, is Arsenal's Theo Walcott. Although I'm sure most Arsenal fans would like to tell Walcott where to go, as of this moment [.
If we sign Vardy is this a sign of things that change around Arsenal? by KM Hello fine Arsenal fans! It is an unusually interesting transfer window regarding our club! We have signed Granit Xhaka and if you believe the papers Jamie Vardy is having a party at Arsenal! Now I know lots of people [...
This is a little bonus that has been sent to us by Arsenal Media. It's a nice little compilation of every single one of Mesut Ozil's assists in his (nearly) record-breaking season. Its lucky its not ALL of the chances he created or you would be watching the video all night! Enjoy!
Thierry Henry has claimed that Theo Walcott's 10 years at Arsenal should have been more fruitful, and insists his playing position is still unclear. The 27 year-old joined from Southampton back in 2006, but has started less than 150 league matches in a decade, and still has a number of questions to answer.
The Ox is eyeing up potential suitors! Whilst Arsenal fans cannot continue to demand more and more from the club in the transfer market, admittedly it has gone awfully quiet since the signing of Granit Xhaka. Fans cannot expect all of the club's business to be done straight away and although previous windows have proven [.
We are anticipating Arsenal to have a busy-ish transfer window, but what positions actually need strengthening? We are constantly linked with name after name, with a number of our supposed targets being midfielders, but we have a wealth of talent and numbers in that department, and other areas need looking at also.
Following the completion of Granit Xhaka's signature, Arsenal need to concentrate on strengthening our weakest links of the campaign. We are gearing up for a busy summer, with Kieran Gibbs likely to push to leave the club, while Tomas Rosicky, Mathieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta have already confirmed their exits at the end of their [.
I don't think that are many Arsenal fans that would stand in the way of Theo Walcott moving on this summer, but for some reason the (ex) England international seems to prefer to stay until 2019 raking in his 140,000 a week for doing nothing! But the good news is that there could be even [...]
Wefinished one place behind shock Premier League winners Leicester City this season, so we thought we'd look at which players are simply not up to scratch when it comes to winning in the future. Kieran Gibbs is not a first-team regular, and despite appearing to be shaping up like he could be the latest youth [.
Is Mkhitaryan a target for Arsenal this summer? Over the course of the summer Arsenal are always linked with so many players that it actually seems we are targeting more players than there are days in the actual transfer window and this year seems no different. But with every piece of speculation it is always [.
Theo Walcott is now claimed to be eager to stay with Arsenal into next season, but there has been many reports surrounding his future this season, and it is hard to decipher the truth... Many fans have turned on the forward this term, given his failure to impress since returning from his latest injury in [.
