After falling to fourth place in the Premier League last weekend, Arsenal have been put under even more pressure after seeing Leicester City stretch their lead at the top with an away win over Man City, while Tottenham also won to move into second spot. So this away clash with AFC Bournemouth really is a [.
It is not just the Arsenal centre forward Olivier Giroud that is responsible for putting the ball in the back of the net for the Gunners, of course, and the stats show you that the France international is actually doing his job very well this season when it comes to converting chances. Unfortunately for Arsenal [.
Having not kicked a ball in anger for Arsenal since we were held to a no score draw by Chelsea at the end of April as they cruised to the Premier League title last season, Danny Welbeck is understandably being treated with kid gloves by Arsene Wenger and the medical staff, but the England international [.
For Arsenal to win the Premier League title we need quite a few things to happen. Starting from the away game against Bournemouth on Sunday the Gunners need to get back to winning ways. We really need to hold our nerve and deal with the expectation of winning games against so-called lesser teams and then [.
Things are not going well for Arsenal at the moment, especially our strikers, and whoever else finds themselves in a goalscoring position. The Gunners haven't won any of our last four League games, and we haven't scored in the last three. Theo Walcott hasn't scored since before Christmas, not to mention blowing the easy one-on-one [.
Arsene has to take responsibility and leave by KM Well I'm sorry but we are not winning the title. We are sitting 4th and with another 'New Year collapse' Wenger once again proved that his incompetence will leave us in the abyss. I really wish not to believe this is happening but that's the reality.
I can understand that Arsene Wenger feels that Arsenal and our challenge for the Premier League title has received a huge boost with the return from injury of Alexis Sanchez. Indeed the Chile international forward outlined his importance to the cause in his very first start at the weekend by getting an assist, a goal [.
Considering the importance of Arsenal keeping up our winning run in the FA Cup, I was a little surprised that Arsene Wenger made a whole nine changes to the team that played Chelsea last week, but it looks like Le Prof gambled with just the right amount of rotation and we ended up winning the [...]
It is always easy to look back with the benefit of hindsight to see where a game went wrong for Arsenal and that is just what us Gooners will be doing over the next couple of days. Obviously it is not hard to point to the sending off of our German centre back as a [...]
Arsenal simply have to beat Chelsea on Sunday by KM Hello everybody. What's up? The Premier league is coming back with a bang this week and we have another one of those games that we have a psychological problem with Chelsea. At home or away, the Blues are one of our worst opponents. Ever [...]
So the big game against Chelsea approaches, and I think Arsenal have more reason to be confident of a first win over Chelsea for some time, especially now that Arsene Wenger is feeling confident that both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez will be on the pitch. Wenger said yesterday: "Compared to last week we have [.
Theo Walcott: Arsenal Legend? by JH Okay, perhaps yesterday should have been the day to write this, but today marks 10 years and a day since a babyfaced 16 year old Theo Walcott joined Arsenal for an upfront fee of £5 million, with add-ons to follow. 10 years and a day later, I have decided [...]
No-one's coming! by DN Just like all long-suffering Gooners, I am used to being extremely disappointed when the transfer window closes, but I have to admit that I really believed that Arsene Wenger would be spending big this January. With the amount of long term injuries we have right now (and don't even try to [.
Okay this is a subject that is much discussed amongst Arsenal fans, especially was Arsene Wenger usually favours buying young or cheap players that are expected to improve as they mature. I have found this calculator from the CIES Football Observatory which calculates each player's worth based on an econometric model used to analyse over [.
There has been a lot of media attention on the Arsenal and England international star Theo Walcott, especially today because it marks the 10th anniversary of his transfer from Southampton as a fresh faced teenager. And although some Arsenal fans and football experts will say that Walcott has not lived up to his potential, the [.
Some naysayers could put forward the view that Arsenal lost two points in the draw at Stoke, but Petr Cech is the type of player whose glass is always half-full and he has persuaded the other Gunners that it is a point gained in our race for the title. Let's allow Theo Walcott to explain [...]
As usual Arsenal had a tough battle at the Britannia Stadium, and Stoke raised their game and fought for ever ball for the whole 90 minutes. Mark Hughes always has his teams prepared to die for the cause and last night was no exception. Even Arsene Wenger praised our opponents after the game, but also [.
LIVERPOOL, WALCOTT AND THE ARSENAL ATTACK by Uche Hello everybody and a mighty big welcome to Mohammed Elneny, aka El Daddy. I have got to say that if his reputation is anything to go by, we might have finally found the heir to Patrick Vieira. Tall, tough, great technical ability, good on the ball, a [.
It was fairly easy to guess the Arsenal starting line up that would be facing Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool side in the Premier League at Anfield tonight, with Arsene Wenger only having a couple of little decisions to make. There are no surprises really, as Giroud starts through the middle. Ramsey, Flamini, Mertesacker and Monreal all [.
The time is fast approaching when our much loved Chilean returns, once at full fitness of course he will reclaim his position on the left in Arsenal's starting line-up, with Cazorla unable to return for at least 8 weeks, you would assume Ramsey will keep his favoured position in the middle. This leaves just the [.
You know what Arsene Wenger will say about Arsenal and the search for another striker in the January transfer window, because we have all heard it before. The club will sign a striker this month if the right one comes along and if they are available. And therein lies the problem because there is a [.
This is Arsenal's year at last! by G-Rude Perhaps the fact that Arsenal won against the odds yesterday after being outplayed by Newcastle, is a very good sign that 2016 could be Arsenal's year. Certainly Theo Walcott thinks it is a great omen for the club and the players have the belief that this really [.
As was made clear in the previous article, Arsenal beat Newcastle despite playing badly and managing to win 'ugly' for a change. Arsene Wenger admitted that he had to feel sorry for Steve McLaren's team but he was more than happy with the Gunners mental strength to take the points. Theo Walcott believes that it [.
Arsenal Mid-Season Evaluation Wingers and Strikers by Jonn Hirons This is the last in my assessment of Arsenal's season so far. I rated the Defenders yesterday and the midfielders in the afternoon, so now let's discuss the attacking players. Wingers Alexis Sanchez Alexis Sanchez is the best winger at our club, he is [.
Was Wenger Right In Not Signing A Striker For Arsenal? by AT Having led his side to a promising position at the halfway point in the season, the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has defended his decision not to sign a striker in the summer. Despite being urged by many of the club's supporters to add [...]
How Theo Has Helped Arsenal Return To Form! by AT After having lost to West Brom and managing only draws against Spurs and Norwich City in consecutive games, Arsenal's title credentials were seriously being questioned, with the Gunners also seemingly on the verge of an exit from the Champions League.
Once again it was the Arsenal and Germany international who was at the heart of Arsenal's latest Premier League win, with Mesut Ozil providing his 15th EPL assist of the season for Olivier Giroud to add to Theo Walcott's opener against Man City. And it was Ozil and Walcott that faced the Sky Sports cameras [.
Mesut Ozil again had a hand in both Arsenal's games against Man City last night, and the scorer of the first (brilliant!) goal, Theo Walcott, was happy to praise the whole team for their efforts, but made it clear that he loves playing alongside the German midfielder. "It's amazing. He's very modest.
All the talk in the Arsenal blogs before the Man City match was about whether Alexis Sanchez would be back in the squad for the match, but he was not even named on the bench, and it would appear he is still some way off full fitness. But the Gunners, despite all our injuries, still [...]
There was a bit of a furore in the summer surrounding what the former Arsenal and France striker Thierry Henry said about the current strike force at the club, and more specifically about the current Arsenal and FRance centre forward Olivier Giroud. The big man was not happy at what he took to be a [.
There was a lot of caution and respect for the quality of the opponents from both Arsenal and Man City in this big Premier League match and for a large part of the first half it looked like it might lead to something of a dull draw. But with both sides having a lot of [...]
Arsenal's right-wing conundrum by Briantole Recently it seems that Wenger has turned the tides around by playing players in their most favoured position for a change, but there is one place that has come under the spotlight. The right wing. First of all Ramsey plays here but he is not a winger. He doesn't have [.
We are now in a transition period at Arsenal having gone from financial underdogs to a financial superpower. I am going to try to bring Wenger's views about Arsenal to an understanding among supporters. So let us try to unlock the hidden gems that Wenger has discovered and made available to him, that he puts [.
Despite the fact that the Arsenal and France centre forward is in absolutely great goal scoring form at the minute, there is a very real chance that he could be dropped for the crucial clash with our main Premier League rivals Manchester City next week. It would not be a reflection of the Frenchman's form [.
After capping a fantastic Champions League performance with his first ever Arsenal hat-trick against Olympiacos and following that up with the opening goal in our Premier League trip to Aston Villa, Olivier Giroud will already have been feeling pretty pleased with himself. But just in case he was not happy, the former Arsenal strike star [.
It was not easy picking the man of the match from the Arsenal team that won away at Aston Villa yesterday, even though most people seem to have gone along with the TV commentators and picked Aaron Ramsey. Theo Walcott was very sharp and played a key role in both of our goals while Olivier [...]
An easy win on paper was expected against Aston Villa today, but all Arsenal fans know that form means little when it comes to the Premier League (just ask Tottenham!), and after Wednesday's euphoria after beating Olympiakos, Wenger admitted that he was a little nervous ahead of today's game. "I was a bit anxious today [.
THis rtesult never really looked in doubt once Arsenal had taken an early lead away to struggling Aston Villa and despite some signs of fatigue in the second half, quite understandable after a long and tiring midweek trip to Greece, the Gunners got the jod done quite comfortably and finish the weekend right where we [.
Arsene Wenger has been at pains this week to keep the Arsenal players' feet on the ground and their minds on the task ahead following the euphoria of rescuing our Champions League campaign from being up the creek without a paddle. So the Frenchman has spoken about focus and about the potential dangers facing the [.
Olivier Giroud scored his first ever hat-trick for Arsenal against Olympiakos and the French striker is understandably basking in the glory this week. Wenger admitted that Ollie is very very good at what he does in certain situations. "If you go on counter-attack of course he is not the kind of player that you want [.
