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 [...]
Internationals. How did our boys Do? By Galen. It has been a good week of International football for most of the Arsenal players. I watched a few games to see how they fared and, like always, you are impressed with some and disappointed with others. Where do I start with oh yeahhhh... The Good [...]
The Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere scored his first England goal in style and followed it up with another screamer to help maintain Englands 100% record in the Euro2016 Qualifiers, and he hopes that this will be the start of his proper career in the national team, like some of his previous heroes..
Did you see it Arsenal fans? If not I would not bother watching the whole replay of the England win over Slovenia, as a lot of it was not great, but you simply have to watch the England goals, especially the first two as they were both scored by the Arsenal player Jack Wilshere. The [...]
England not picking Walcott was a travesty by Sam P I have got a sneaking suspicion that Roy Hodgson was busy, on holiday or simply could not be bothered to watch the last few games played by Arsenal as we finished the season with a bang. Why else would the England boss have chosen to [...]
England may have looked like wilting violets in their game against Ireland last week, but now they come to the serious Euro Qualifying match in Slovenia and they are looking to keep their 100% record in the group games so far. England won the Wembley fixture 3-1 in November but this return leg won't be [.
With the Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere being the only England player that seemed to be trying to win the game against Republic of Ireland yesterday, it was no surprise that the match was a drab and unexciting game that leaves England still waiting for a win over the men in green. But as much as [.
I am missing club football already, even though Arsenal only finished the season a week ago in high style by smashing Aston Villa into little pieces and lifting the FA cup trophy. So I was really looking forward to seeing some of our Gunners in action for England against Republic of Ireland in Dublin today.
There have already been hundreds of articles written about Jack Wilshere's behavious at the celebration of Arsenal's FA Cup win, and this has culminated in him being charged by the FA as well as getting a slap on the wrist from Arsene Wenger. Now the England manager Roy Hodgson has put in his tuppence worth [.
I am so glad for the Arsenal and England international star Jack Wilshere that his season ended on a high note, forgetting about the storm in a teacup that is the FA charge after his taunting of the spuds. By and large, however, it was another season of frustration due to injury for the talented [...
Arsenal's very own London Terrier Jack Wilshere is very excited about the firepower the Gunners have in our squad, and believes that we have the players that can punish our opponents next season. "We've got players who can hurt teams with Alexis and Ozil, world-class players we've added in the last two seasons," Wilshere said.
In the years when Arsenal were not winning anything except our annual place in the Champions League group stage, Arsenal fans were understandably a bit miffed when Arsene Wenger spoke about the balance of the squad and about building for the future. But it now seems as though the Frenchman´s plans for the foundation of [.
Every year Arsenal fans take great pleasure in St Totteringham's Day nd this year has been no different. We also all know the famous chants that Jack Wilshere used in the FA Cup Parade from the top of the Open-Top Bus and most of them have been sung by ourselves when we are out with [...]
With Danny Welbeck being the only notable absentee for Arsenal as they take on Aston Villa in the FA Cup final, the team selection for the big game will prove to be a very difficult task for Arsene Wenger, and perhaps the most difficult part of selecting the starting eleven will be deciding which players [.
Jack Wilshere has always seemed to be one of Arsene Wenger's favourites, and Le Prof usually is prepared to drop better performing Arsenal midfielders to make room for the English terrier. But Jack has been out injured for most of the season (again!) and this year has played just two half-hour stints against Swansea and [.
Wilshere and Walcott must start FA cup final by Sam P Just as Arsenal seemed to be running out of steam at this key stage of the season, with a massive FA cup final against Aston Villa on the horizon to add sparkle to our season, the Gunners have hit form again with a thumping [...]
I expected Arsene Wenger to make some changes to the Arsenal starting line up for the final game of the Premier League season today, at home to the in form West Brom of Tony Pulis. But the Frenchman's XI is still a bit of a surprise, with both Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere coming in. [...]
Why Arsenal Need to Win Convincingly This Weekend! With automatic qualification for next season's Champions League all but secured despite the rather disappointing draw against Sunderland, Arsenal must now focus their attention on the FA Cup final against Aston Villa, and the Gunners midfielder Jack Wilshere has warned that the North London side must put [.
You would normally expect Arsenal to have had a really tough task defending our goal for the keeper to get the Man of the Match award but it was not like that. David Ospina was vital to us getting a point though as we failed to score again and Sunderland had a few very good [...]
This season may not have been quite as good for the Arsenal `English core´ as they or the fans would have liked but when you look at the problems that are being faced by some of our Premier League rivals in order to comply with the rules that will demand more so-called homegrown players to [...]
Arsene Wenger is clearly looking for an Arsenal win tonight over Sunderland, even though a point would be enough to make sure that we do not have to face the two legged Champions League play offs, barring a cricket score from Man United and a defeat at home to West Brom in our last game. [...]
Just a couple of years ago, Arsene Wenger was trying to build an "English core" of players educated in the Arsenal academy and taught to play the Arsenal way. There were lots of home-based players coming through and signed up to long-term contracts. Players like Carl Jenkinson, Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Kieran [.
Arsene Wenger has suggested that he will make one or two changes to the Arsenal starting line up for the Premier League home clash with Sunderland this evening, but with it being the second of three games in a week and looking at the injury situation, I think it will be more like three or [...]
Arsene Wenger picks the same starting XI for five games in a row? Unheard of! Could he now be aiming for a sixth unchanged side after our listless display against Swansea? For some reason I doubt this very much, especially after reading this quote from our Dear Leader: "If the players are tired, I'm ready [.
Why Schneiderlin is not needed at Arsenal by Midkemma Personally I hope Arsenal do NOT sign Morgan Schneiderlin, I have been saying this from day one and my view has not changed. He is a great talent BUT WE DO NOT NEED YET ANOTHER B2B CM! Make no mistake, that is what he is. Wanyama [...]
Arsene can't get no satisfaction by Konstantin Mitov Aren't the Rolling Stones a nice way to start an article right? So whats up? After soaking up the Swansea defeat by which I was devastated, it's time to take a look as to what lies ahead? First up it's a tricky game vs Man United at [...]
There are not a lot of happy Arsenal fans around after watching Swansea stage a smash-and-grab raid on Monday, especially as it was our old reserve keeper Lukasz Fabianski making our strikers look like schoolboys in a Man-Of-the-Match performance. But at least one Arsenal player, Jack Wilshere, was happy for the Polish shot-stopper.
Since Arsenal got over the slow start to the season and the injury crisis, we have had our mojo back and have blown most teams away. The odd bad result has proved to be just a blip which the Gunners have quickly bounced back from and the same thing will happen after the disappointing loss [...]
Don´t blame Wenger by Sam P I agree that Arsenal were a bit disappointing last night as we slumped to a shock defeat against Swansea City. It brought back memories of the old Arsenal as well, dominating possession but failing to break down a determined and defensively organised team before leaving ourselves exposed to the [.
Well it seems that despite all the pre-match talk about Arsene Wenger making a few changes to his Arsenal line-up for tonight's home game in the Premier League, it turns out that the Frenchman is to stick with the same starting XI. That makes it five games in a row with the same side, something [...]
I wonder which Arsenal players are going to miss out against Swansea City tomorrow, assuming that I have read the hints made by Arsene Wenger about making changes to the starting line up. If I am right then we should be seeing Jack Wilshere, Kieran Gibbs and Theo Walcott from the start against Garry Monk´s [.
As we get down to the nitty-gritty in the fight for Second Place in the Premier League, it seems that Arsene Wenger s going for stability in the Arsenal line-up based on the maxim "Why change a winning team?". It has worked so far as Wenger picked an unchanged line-up for the fourth time in [...]
