So the Arsenal treatment room may well have been about as busy as Kings Cross station at rush hour over the last few years, but at least Arsene Wenger and the club staff have seen that there must be more to this problem than simple bad luck and they have taken steps to sort the [...]
It has not been a great start to the season for Arsenal, there is no doubt about that. And after all the talk of how important it was for the Gunners not to repeat our start of last season when we let Jose Mourinho´s Chelsea build an unassailable lead before we even got going, it [...]
I know that people will always trot out that famous old football saying about it being a 'nice problem to have' when, like Arsenal right now, a club has a lot of competition for places in a certain area of the pitch. But a problem is a problem and the centre of midfield and who [...]
As usual, the Arsenal fans are left pretty much in the dark about whether there will be any more transfer business completed before the transfer window closes. Arsene Wenger is doing his regular job of denying everything and trying not to give even the merest hint of his intentions. The Frenchman was asked a few [.
Last season it seemed to me that Arsenal had finally come out of the long dark tunnel of bad luck that had been plaguing the club for years. It had seemed that there was some sort of football cure on the Gunners, with bad decisions from referees as well as the busiest injury room in [...]
The last week or so must have been a bit of a rollercoaster ride for the Arsenal and England star Jack Wilshere. From being about to start in the Community Shield clash against Wembley to picking up an injury that meant he missed the curtain raiser at Wembley was only the start. Then we had [...]
One Gooner's guilty pleasures, confessions and irrational thoughts by JS Dear Gooners This site has been a place full of angst, introspection and gloom in recent weeks. Who the next transfer will be, or even more debilitating for some will there even be a next transfer? Anyone else got Benzema-itus? I thought I would [.
Well that's that then! The 'Benzema to Arsenal' stories have been hogging the headlines for the last month (as they do every summer) but now Arsene Wenger has finally come out and stated that he is more than happy with his current strike-force, and the Benzema rumours are purely media talk. He said in todays [.
There will certainly be a temptation in the mind of Arsene Wenger to include the man that the Arsenal fans voted as the best player of last season in the matchday squad for the opening game of the Premier League. In fact the manager has already suggested, as reported by Arsenal.com, that he might pick [.
I guess we should all be used to Arsene Wenger having absolutely no idea about Arsenal players injuries, as yet again he has got it completely wrong about how long Jack Wilshere will be on the sidelines. Jack looked very fit and lively in the pre-season games, but after being left out of the Chelsea [.
The Premier League season hasn't even begun yet but Arsenal have sustained their first new injury setback. Jack Wilshere took a knock on his ankle in the last training session before the Community Shield win over Chelsea, which could be related to the ankle injury which made him miss five months of last season.
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 [.
They say that there is no such thing as bad publicity and so perhaps the Arsenal and England star Jack Wilshere should just be glad that he is being talked about. At least he has not been forgotten and this is further evidence that the young midfielder is still being seen as one of the [...]
A lot of Arsenal fans and members of the football media in general were talking about our England international midfielder Jack Wilshere at this point last year and suggesting that he was facing a very important and perhaps pivotal season in his football career. Wilshere had hardly featured for England at the World Cup finals [.
Arsenal transfer activity, preview by RPK Can Arsenal finally win the Premier league after more than a decade? For the first time since we left Highbury, I feel like we have the billing of a genuine Premier League title contenders. After winning two FA cups and a Community shield in the last two seasons, the [.
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 [.
It was brilliant for us all to watch Arsenal take apart the French Ligue 1 runners up yesterday, continuing the free scoring pre-season preparations with six unanswered goals. But it might not have been quite so enjoyable for the England international midfielder Jack Wilshere. The 23-year old was not even on the subs bench yesterday, [.
I am not trying to tell the Arsenal manager what to do, and I doubt very much whether he would take much notice if I did, but I will go ahead and give Arsene Wenger my thoughts on the matter of which 11 players I think he should pick to start the first of our [...]
Depending on how quickly the Arsenal and Chile star Alexis Sanchez gets back to match fitness and into the swing of the new season, the Gunners will have to manage between one and four games without our best player of last season. And with all the talk of how much our slow start cost us [...]
There is an argument that the biggest thing holding back Arsenal Football Club, after the years of financial hardship finally came to an end that is, has been the injury and fitness situation. So the signs that this is now coming to an end with the help of some new conditioning experts on the back [.
'We are ready for a title charge' by LPKMTY There are plenty of Arsenal fans that do not believe we have enough to mount a credible title challenge this season but I am not one of them. I believe our squad is deep and dynamic enough to last the distance this time. Now clearly, a [...]
TRANSFER BLUES: UNDERSTANDING THE ARSENAL WAY by Uche Hello guys, good day to you all. It doesn't take a genius to decipher that many of us are going nuts about the fact that we are not signing players at the rate that Manchester United and Liverpool are doing. Of course both teams finished below us [.
Jack Wilshere is at the cusp of an interesting season. And he wants to hold crunch talks with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger ahead of the new season. Wilshere wants to discuss where he stands in the pecking order before deciding on his plans. Wilshere has missed more games than he played for the Gunners in [.
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.
It was only the first game of pre-season for Arsenal today and playing against a Singapore select XI was never going to be the toughest test for the Gunners. However, it was a great start for us and could hardly have gone better, especially for the young English striker Chuba Akpom who completed the full [.
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. [...]
The Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere believes that survival in English Premier League requires ‘absurd' fitness levels. The English international has had his trysts with injuries throughout his short career. Sometimes the supporters wonder if the 23-year-old has spent more time on the medical table than the most of his colleagues (except Abou Diaby and perhaps [.
The first team Gunners kick-started their efforts to start gearing themselves for the new season ahead. Most of the first team returned to training as the manager Arsene Wenger oversaw the preparations at London Colney. Wenger is looking to sharpen up his squad ahead of the pre-season tour of Singapore.
Continuing my analysis of the current Arsenal squad by JA MIDFIELD This is where we are blessed with a lot in terms of numbers, potential and quality. Due to the sheer numbers in the middle, breaking down categories will be a little hectic, so we'll review one by one player looking at their strengths and [.
Why a DM IS a priority by Big Gun First off, let me say it's a sigh of relief and a breath of fresh air to see the stalwart that is Peter Cech wearing the red and white. For the last couple of years, in fact since Lehman's departure, our goalie position has always been [...]
Apart from that harsh and ridiculous fine from the FA for using a mild swear word when celebrating Arsenal winning the FA cup for the second year in a row (seriously what was that all about?), the season ended very well for the Arsenal and England star Jack Wilshere. A stunning strike and some sterling [.
With four days remaining until the official opening day of the transfer window everyone is waiting for a flurry of big money bids for so-called "home-grown" players to fulfil the new FA regulations. From the start of next season every Premiership team must have at least 8 HG players in their squads. Man City are [.
Officially the transfer market is yet to open but the Arsenal rumours never fail to flood the papers. Reportedly, the arrival of Petr Cech is done and dusted and is waiting to be announced. Not taking anything away from the last minute surprises, let us safely assume that Cech will be a Gunner this summer.
He may have started only nine Premier League games last season, but I have a feeling that Arsenal are about to see the best of the England international Jack Wilshere. To do that, however, the club and Arsene Wenger will need to keep hold of the injury plagued midfielder and that may not be [...]
After the Arsenal open-bus FA Cup parade, Jack Wilshere made it clear that he was an Arsenal fan through and through, and had to pay 40,000 GBP for the priviledge of insulting our closest rivals on live TV, but is he just a mercenary like all the rest? Wilshere was given a few chances to [...]
We are now 10 days away from the official re-opening of the transfer window, and clubs have been working hard to get deals in place early. Arsenal are yet to complete an agreement to sign any senior players as of yet, but we do appear close to one or two... Petr Cech has been heavily [...]
Assuming that the Arsenal transfer rumours are on the matrk, of course, and with the generally reliable Sky Sports reporting it then it looks likely, Arsene Wenger is about to face a serious transfer attack from our Premier League trivals Man City. The player in question is our England international midfielder Jack Wilshere and even [.
When I was a lad my mum used to keep a big jar in the front room, and anyone whose swore in front of her had to put 10p into the fund, which was presumably used to buy some soap to wash out the offenders mouths! But I don't think that jar would be nearly [...]
