There is more evidence today that Arsenal may have finally got to the root of the problem that has seen Arsene Wenger have to cope with a crippling injury list for most of the current season and the whole of our last campaign. It has been a problem which many believe has cost the Gunners [...]
Jack Wilshere is out injured at the moment but is expected to return to the Arsenal squad in a couple of weeks. The terrier has been playing as a defensive midfielder for England although Arsene Wenger considers him to be more of an attacking force in the Premiership. The Gunners already have a plethora of [.
Arsenal fans have been surprised and delighted by the performances of our French midfielder Francis Coquelin this season. Having been recalled from his most recent loan spell because of an injury crisis in central midfiel, the 23-year old has never looked back and every good performance he puts in makes us believe more and more [.
I may be wrong of course, but I have a feeling that the Arsenal and England star Jack Wilshere might already be back in training with his club team mates by now and could have featured in one of the Gunners' next three games, if there was not an international break just around the corner. [...]
Arsene Wenger was giving a little update on the Arsenal injury situation today when he also admitted that the Gunners are currently suffering from a bit of fatigue and have been recently. Without naming names, the Frenchman hinted that his team selection for the weekend Premier League clash with West Ham could be affected by [.
It is coming up to that time when Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal fans hold our collective breaths, cross our fingers and hope that none of the Gunners come back from the international break with an injury. But in one way this upcoming two week break in club football has come at a good time [...]
Now I know there is a long way until June, but that doesn't stop the Sunday papers coming up with lots of Arsenal transfer rumours to give us all something to talk about. Todays offerings are NOT about incoming players but instead are focusing on which players Arsene Wenger could be losing in the summer.
One little phrase used by Arsene Wenger in his Arsenal pre-match press conference yesterday could turn out to be one of the most significant short burst of words in the last few years for Arsenal fans, players, manager and the long term success of the club. If you think I am exaggerating, you might be [.
I am sure that Arsene Wenger would have liked to be able to ease the Arsenal and Wales international star Aaron Ramsey back into the Gunners side, perhaps with a run out as a sub tomorrow night against QPR and then again at Old Trafford in the FA cup on Monday night. Ramsey's previous return [...]
I am sure that the Arsenal and France striker Olivier Giroud was just trying to diffuse the situation, perhaps with a typical Gallic shrug of the shoulders, but I am not so sure how well his words will be received by his Arsenal team mates, or by the manager for that matter. Arsene Wenger has [...]
'Shere Willpower is necessary in order to overcome the obstacles of injuries and off-field distractions by Demitri The beginning of something special Jack Wilshere burst onto the scene for Arsenal, in 2008, at the age of 16 years and 256 days, breaking Cesc Fabregas' record of being the club's youngest player to feature in the [.
It looks like there is a good chance that Arsenal will have our Wales international midfielder Aaron Ramsey back quite soon, perhaps even as soon as the Premier League match at home to Everton on March 1st. But with the way his injury problems have recurred already this season, I am sure that Arsene Wenger [.
While Arsene Wenger today confirmed the news that every Arsenal fans was hoping for, the manager's latest injury update, reported by the official Arsenal website, was not all good news for the Gunners. So it seems that, as usual, Arsenal will still be missing a few key players for a while at least. The news [.
He may not have been able to help Arsenal win at White Hart Lane yesterday or even to avoid the heavy pressure applied by the Tottenham team from eventually ending up in defeat, but Francis Coquelin at least tried his best. It was not the young Frenchman´s best game since he returned to Arsenal from [.
Whether you believe in fortune or just think that it is a coincidence when things go for or against you or your football club, it has to be said that Arsenal have been on the wrong end of it in recent years. Even in the first half of this season everything seemed to be going [...]
THE ARSENAL FAN'S MIND by JA Hey guys hope y'all having a great week after what happened against Villa and are looking forward to great things against Tottenham. So with things going well I just intend to talk about the disappointment I feel towards a whole lot of Arsenal fans, with the way they have [.
Arsene Wenger has given the Arsenal fans all the latest on the injured Gunners during the press conference ahead of the Premier League clash with Aston Villa at the Emirates on Sunday. You can see the whole thing on Arsenal Player but I am just looking at what the manager revealed about the injury situation [.
Arsene Wenger has been hailed as a master for his stroke of genius due to the fact that the Arsenal boss recalled Francis Coquelin from his loan deal at Charlton, but the fact that he did not secure a new contract for the French midfielder may yet come back to bite him in the bum! [...]
Arsenal may have finally got a bit of good luck in drawing French club Monaco in the next round of the Champions League, but we need that luck to carry on for us and help is out of the latest injury crisis to afflict the club this season. It is not yet certain, but a [...]
I don't know about the rest of the Arsenal fans, but I have been a bit worried about how the team would cope after Jack Wilshere picked up his latest ankle injury during the unlucky loss to Manchester United a couple of weeks ago. The loss of Wilshere, even though he was showing his best [...]
Why Arsenal Have to Sign a DM this January! by AT A lot of the blame for Arsenal's dismal form so far this season has been focused on the lack of defensive depth and stability in the Gunners squad. While we could definitely do with a new centre-back or even two, there is another aspect [...]
I must admit I was very surprised when I saw the latest post on Arsenal.com saying that the Gunners have decided to extend Francis Coquelin's loan period at Charlton. The original deal was to send him to the Valley for a month until this Sunday night. He has impressed everyone at Charlton in the three [.
The Arsenal injury update given by Arsene Wenger today was pretty depressing for Arsenal fans to hear. It looked like the Gunners were going to have to do without almost a full and decent starting XI players, with Danny Welbeck, Yaya Sanogo and Theo Walcott apparently unlikely to return along with out other crocks Arteta, [.
The Arsenal injury curse and Jack Wilshere's personal nightmare goes on and on. Young Jack was the subject of yet another crunching tackle as he sprinted into the Man United penalty area last week, and it has resulted in another operation on his left ankle. Most papers reported that Wilshere would miss three months even [.
Arsene Wenger was clearly delighted by the strong performance of his Arsenal players last night, but he was just as clearly devastated and almost at a loss for words that the victory over Borussia Dortmund exacted the heavy price of two more Gunners joining the ever growing and continued injury list that is in danger [.
Arsenal fans will be hoping for a morale boosting win against Borussia Dortmund tomorrow, which would make us all feel a lot better as well as keeping alive our faint hopes of topping the Champions League group. But The fans and players and Arsene Wenger would happily settle for a share of the spoils as [.
No-one can deny that Arsenal's defeat at home to Man United yesterday was a massive disappointment, but it could surely have been a whole lot worse if Jack Wilshere had been sent off after just half an hour of the game. The England midfielder looked like a very angry banshee as he aggressively approached the [.
Louis van Gaal changed his tactics to try to surprise Arsenal and counter his team's defensive problems, with three central defenders and with Luke Shaw and Valencia playing as wing backs in a midfield five, with Rooney and van Persie up front. But it was not really working as the Gunners tok control of the [.
Arsene Wenger must have been mightily relieved when the in form England striker Danny Welbeck passed his late fitness test and as expected, the Frenchman has stuck with the pacy and hard working front man instead of bringing back Olivier Giroud who has made an early return to fitness and is on the bench to [.
Arsenal vs Manchester United Preview, predicted line up and score by KJ This international break was probably the least annoying of all the ones we've had so far. Most fans were pretty annoyed at our last result and this has given us ample time to distance ourselves from the result and the performance and this [.
Should Wilshere be Playing a Deeper Midfield Role for Arsenal As Well? by AT Undoubtedly, the biggest relief Arsenal can take from the latest international break is the fact that there are no new injury concerns to address. In addition to that relief, there was also the sheer joy of watching the Gunners' English contingent [.
With Arsenal now having turned from a team of mainly foreign players to being built around a strong core of young British players, the Gunners now find themselves in the strange position of being the main provider of players for the England national team. And the young Gunners are doing very well for Roy Hodgson.
I am sure that all six of the Arsenal players in the England squad will be hoping to be involved for Roy Hodgson't team when they face the auld enemy Scotland in a friendly match at Celtic Park tonight. The home internationals used to be the highlight of the football calendar for most of the [...]
Why Wilshere and Ramsey will never work together as a central midfield pairing by KJ After Wilshere's impressive display against Slovenia, many are questioning once again as to why we can't play Wilshere and Ramsey together. Wilshere is clearly doing well for England in that deep role and Ramsey is a similar (albeit far better) [.
There were four Arsenal players that started in the England win over Slovenia, but Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck are both expecting a much more competitive match against Scotland tomrrow, despite it being billed as a "friendly" match! Wilshere even thinks tomorrows 111th meeting between the two neighbouring countries will be similar to the North [.
With an hour left to play yesterday, Arsenal should have gone down to 10 men after Jack Wilshere tried to headbutt Marouane Fellaini.
Standing at just 5 foot 7, Wilshere's forehead could only reach Fellaini's chest, but obviously the height difference between players isn't mention in FIFA's laws of the game when giving criteria for red cards.
