People have questioned whether Arsenal are lacking in character, leadership and mental strength. You can’t really blame them, I suppose, after Chelsea inflicted a third heavy Premier League defeat on the Gunners. But Paul Scholes’ ill-informed attack was shown to be as bad as his punditry skills by the fight that Arsenal showed today.
I was expecting nerves galore and a shaky show from an Arsenal team who had every reason to be low on confidence, but as they have done many times this season, they proved people wrong. I was so proud of how the players took the game to the strongest team in the league and fully believe that, with a bit of luck, we could have taken the lead early on. .......Read the full article here
Well, what a rollercoaster that was. Arsenal needed a result tonight, badly, and we nearly got one despite playing badly. Arsene Wenger made an earlier sub than usual, and it was definitely the right move. Lukas Podolski came on to rescue the Gunners with a goal and an assist when we were in serious trouble, but an unlucky last minute goal gave Swansea the draw.
Arsenal started okay but a little nervous and once Wilfried Bony had shocked Arsenal with a goal on their first attack, we made very heavy work of it. Chamberlain was a shadow of the player that put the frighteners on Bayern Munich recently and absolutely nothing was working for Giroud. .......Read the full article here
This article I wrote in a bit of any angry state so please forgive if I offend anyone in anyway. I couldn’t sleep for parts of last night, as I always do when Arsenal lose because when my team loses I lose too and I don’t like losing. I was wide awake reliving the game, breaking down play and working out what caused all this, like the armchair manager I am. Hindsight can always make you seem very intelligent but still yesterday I don’t think anyone can say Wenger had a good team sheet out before the game. .......Read the full article here
Although Arsene Wenger did not come out of the Arsenal dressing room for the usual post-match interview after the 6-0 mauling by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, and who can blame him, he did later give his reaction to the game and took all of the blame for what was one of the worst of all the 1000 games he has had as manager of the Gunners.
Wenger is reported by Arsenal.com as saying, “It was a nightmare and I take full responsibility for it. What is important is to give a response on Tuesday night and that is it. .......Read the full article here
It was an absolutely harrowing performance by Arsenal at Chelsea. The most embarrassing defeat I’ve ever seen as an Arsenal fan. This is far worse than the 8-2 against Man United, simply because that team was made up of reserve/youth players whilst this team was first choice and far better than the team we put out against Man United at the time. Why has it come to this? .......Read the full article here
What can I say Arsenal fans? I for one have had enough of this garbage and an heading for the nearest boozer! And on the landmark day of Arsene Wenger managing the Gunners for the 1000th competitive game. I am more ashamed to be an Arsenal fan than I have ever been.
The only small redeeming factor of that awful first half was that the referee was as bad as Arsenal and sent off Kieran Gibbs instead of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. That probably means that Gibbs will have his red card rescinded and they cannot punish the Ox retrospectively. .......Read the full article here
As has become the norm ahead of a clash with Arsenal, at least one of the Tottenham players started spouting off about turning tides or some such nonsense. It was no surprise to see that former Gunner Emmanuel Adebayor was having a pop at Arsenal before Sunday’s game at White Hart Lane, but I wonder what he has to say now. Well Manu? .......Read the full article here

Arsenal went in to this crucial north London derby knowing that they needed to win to stay level on points with Liverpool, who had easily beaten a very poor Man United earlier in the day. With injuries ravaging his squad, Arsene wenger started Podolski, Cazorla and Rosicky behind Giroud.
The Czech midfielder showed straight away why Paul Merson had said before the game that he should play every week, smashing a brilliant opening goal just a minute and 12 seconds after the kick off, the quickest ever against the spuds in the Premier League. Rosicky started and finished it after linking up with Chamberlain. Howitzer, Piledriver and rocket were the words that came to mind and the Gunners were off to the perfect start. .......Read the full article here
