Another week, another Arsenal injury. As discussed earlier this week, the Gunners get an average of one injury per game (over five years!) and this week it seems that Kieran Gibbs is the unlucky one. Our defence every week just consists of whoever happens to be fit at the time. With David Ospina out until [.
Is Santi Cazorla doing enough playing in the creative midfield role for Arsenal? by SE Santi Cazorla was going to be one of the key personnel for Arsenal this season, as the North Londoners were without Mesut Ozil to start off with, and Alexis Sanchez was new to the club. Cazorla, who plays as an [..
A few years ago Jack Wilshere was hailed as the next big English star and was loved for his do-or-die attitude for Arsenal. Due to injuries and lay-offs that expectation has waned a bit, but the player himself feels that he has now regained his golden touch for the Gunners. He told Arsenal.com today: "I've [.
For a long time now, one of the most talked about factors of the Arsenal team, often seen as a weakness but always a topic of debate, is the central midfield area. And more specifically, the most deep lying or defensive part of it. Now the club captain Mikel Arteta has had his own say [...]
Is the Wilshere-Ramsey partnership a problem? Or is it just the way it is being executed? by Usmanov Whether we like this formation or not, the much spoke-against 4-1-4-1 formation has come to stay. More so, Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey are the two players crucial to this strategy being in the scheme of things [.
Sunderland vs Arsenal Preview, Predicted line up and score by KJ We've struggled to pick up points against the smaller teams with two disappointing draws against Hull and Leicester. We also just about managed to beat Palace at home thanks to a last gasp Ramsey winner. We have to make a statement in this game [.
The Arsenal manager spoke to the press today ahead of the trip north to face Sunderland in the Premier League tomorrow, as reported by The Mirror. And I don't think that Arsene Wenger needed to stretch his tactical acumen too far to realise that the home side may well concentrate on their defending after being [.
Will Ramsey's return bring about a change in Arsenal's fortunes? by SE Aaron Ramsey returned to action for Arsenal during the 2-2 home draw against Hull City last weekend. The Welshman came on as a 62nd minute sub for Mathieu Flamini, as the North Londoners went in search of an equalizer. Ramsey completed 82% of [.
Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been impressing for club and country this season, especially since this injury crisis hit the Gunners, but his Arsenal and England team-mate Jack Wilshere has made it clear that once Theo Walcott is back to full fitness, the Ox will have to be relegated to the bench.
Much was made about Arsenal's Jack Wilshere being used as a defensive midfielder for England's two European Championship Qualifiers last week, but Arsene Wenger is adamant that Hodgson is definitely using him in the wrong position. "Jack has more experience and he mixed well his long balls and kept his individual capacity to make a [.
With Arsenal having to cope with the usual injury crisis, especially in defence, Arsene Wenger had to go with the relatively untried young Spaniard Hector Bellerin at right back and the left back Nacho Monreal in an unfamiliar central role. But a game against Hull City at the Emirates gave the Gunners the chance to [.
It looks like the Arsenal and England international star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be heading on a collision course with his club manager Arsene Wenger over the subject of the under 21 Euro championships next summer. And it is not the first time that the inclusion of the young Arsenal players for the England under 21 [.
It was inevitable that the next time that Arsenal and Hull City met on the pitch after the great day at Wembley on the 17th of May, the subject of the FA cup would come up. Of course we Arsenal fans are hoping for the same result when the final whistle blows, but I would [...]
The Arsenal and England international star Jack Wilshere has been talking about how sorry he is for his club team mate Mesut Ozil after the German playmaker picked up a knee problem and could be out for up to three months. And with news of Tomas Rosicky also having an injury, it leaves young Wilshere [.
Maybe it was a bad idea for Arsenal to put a revolving door in the treatment room. That is certainly how it feels for the Gunners at the minute, as no sooner do we get a few players back from injury than they are replaced by other members of the Arsenal squad. The latest to [...]
I am sure that the Arsenal and England international left back Kieran Gibbs would have been a bit disappointed that he was not given the chance to build on his good performance during his fourth international cap for England against San Marino the other day. In the cold light of day, however, I think the [.
Our very own Jack Wilshere helped England to win their fourth game in a row tonight against Estonia, and is hopeful that perhaps this new younger England squad (full of Arsenal players!) can go on and be successful on the big stage. There have been a lot of retirements after England's abject failure in Brazil [.
Why Wilshere should mould his game around Modric, not Alonso. by KJ Jack has just completed another game for England and was easily MOTM for anyone who watched it. He played the deepest midfielder and was pinging long balls all game to Rooney with good success. He should've easily ended up with 2-3 assists if [.
It must be terribly frustrating for a pro footballer to have to sit and watch their team mates from the sidelines and not be able to do anything to help them. And the Arsenal players must feel this sort of frustration a lot more than most, because for some reason we seem to get more [...]
Arsenal fans are very used to seeing Arsene Wenger put his players into unfamiliar roles on the pitch, so it seems strange that England are now doing the same thing with Jack Wilshere and are trying to turn him into a defensive midfielder this week. One can only wonder if Arsene Wenger has discussed this [.
There is no doubt that things have changed at Arsenal Football Club in recent years. And I am not just talking about selling our best players, spending no money and finishing fourth every year. It has been mentioned a fair bit in the media that Arsene Wenger is now almost the bastion and forefront of [.
With Arsenal suffering from what seems like a never ending run of bad luck with injuries, most Arsenal fans would probably have preferred it if there were no Gunners in action during the international round of games. But that was never going to happen so the next thing we want is for our players to [.
If the terrible news about the Arsenal and Germany international midfielder Mesut Ozil is true and he is going to miss a few months because of a knee problem, then one of our other recent signings from La Liga may get his wish. Because the former Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez has revealed, in an Arsenal.
Wilshere This, Wilshere That – What to do With This Talented Starlet? by NikkoGunners Most Arsenal fans nowadays read the team sheet looking for one name – Is Wilshere playing or is he not? Second question quickly is what does that mean for other talents in the Squad? Clearly Wilshere is a massively talented young [.
There have been many posts and comments rueing Arsenal's performance against Chelsea at the weekend, but the Gunners midfielder Jack Wilshere feels that we were on top for a lot of the game, but just didn't take advantage of our chances when they appeared during the match. "At times we controlled the game," said Wilshere.
Arsene Wenger was clearly frustrated after Arsenal succumbed to another away defeat at the hands of one our big rivals. But the Frenchman also claimed after the match that the Gunners were unlucky, as an Arsenal.com report shows. His main example was the penalty claim on 63 minutes when Wilshere's shot was blocked by the [.
Creators Vs Predators: The Arsenal Dilemma by ElusiveArsenal When writing an article after an Arsenal match. I find staying off Twitter and taking an hour off to cool down absolutely necessary. Without that, most of this would be filled with curses and rants directed at everyone from the manager to the players to the irritating [.
10 Shots and NONE on Target! by NikkoGunners Arsenal outscored Chelsea on shots, but none of our shots were on target. Chelsea had three on target and got two goals. What does such a statistics tell us? Arsenal's game has been very patient this term and we spend long spells in the game planning the [.
After the shocking way Arsenal were hammered at Stamford Bridge last season, today's Premier League clash with Chelsea is a good chancw to if Arsene Wrenger and the Gunners have learned their lessons and whether we will have any more joy against the big clubs this season. But the Frenchman's starting selection is hampered by [.
Arsenal were very impressive in the first half against Galatasary, in fact they controlled the game right up until Wojciech Szczesny got himself dismissed, but there is no doubt that Sunday's game against League leaders Chelsea will be a different kettle of fish. The Gunners will have to be much stronger at the back and [.
Wenger now the toast of England by CR Less than a decade ago Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger fielded a squad that did not contain an English player, yet now, his team is full of promising players that are eligible to play in current England boss Roy Hodgson's side. Wenger was criticised for the team he [.
Arsenal will want to get their Champions League campaign back on trach this evening and we have a great chance at home against Galatasaray. And not only will a win put us back in a good position to at least qualify, a good performance will go a long way to banishing the memory of the [...]
With a sudden injury crisis hitting Arsenal in the central midfield area like an unexpected punch in the stomach, I was hoping that Arsene Wenger would be able to call on our France international Abou Diaby, as the long legged Frenchman continues on the road to resurrecting his Arsenal career. But in the latest team [.
There has been good and bad Arsenal injury news in the aftermath of our disappointing draw with Tottenham. The bad news is that both Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta are both going to out for up to a month, although even that estimate could probably be taken with a pinch of salt considering past forecasts.
It is not really going too far to say that Arsenal v Galatasaray on Wednesday night is a must win game for the Gunners, at least if we are to keep our hopes alive of actually winning our UCL group this time and avoiding the likes of Bayern Munich and Barcelona in the first knockout [...]
First of all Arsenal fans, I cannot believe our luck on the injury front. And just like last season, they all seem to come in the same areas at the same time. First it was the defence, losing Kieran Gibbs, Nacho Monreal and Mathieu Debuchy within the first few games and now it is the [...]
We all know that Arsene Wenger likes to keep his plans for Arsenal close to his chest, be it transfer business, tactics or even which players are really fit enough to play. In that he is no different to most Premier League managers, but usually we have a good idea of the tactics and system [...]
