No matter what you think of Arsenal’s season and where the blame lies for Arsenal slipping from a Premier League title winning campaign to the usual fight for fourth spot, Arsene Wenger and the Gunners have five league games and an FA cup final to navigate and they need the fans fully behind them.
A Metro report reveals that, rather than being buoyed by their team booking a place at Wembley on May 17th, Arsenal fans were more dismayed by how hard the team found it to overcome Wigan Athletic. Yes, they are a Championship club, but don’t forget that they knocked Man City out at the Etihad in the previous round and every ounce of pressure was on us, not them. .......Read the full article here
Everyone at Arsenal will certainly have received a boost by getting into the FA cup final with a penalty shootout win over Wigan Athletic, but there is now a Premier League run-in to focus on and the Gunners could really do with another boost from some of our injured players.
And we may even get it for the visit of West Ham tomorrow night. As reported by Arsenal.com, the team could be boosted by the return of two key players in Tomas Rosicky and Laurent Koscielny, although Arsene Wenger admitted that both of them are not certain to be fit and will face late fitness tests to make sure. .......Read the full article here
Positive injury news on Jack Wilshere!
Whilst there are some recent disappointments on the injury front upon hearing that neither Mesut Ozil nor Laurent Koscienly will be available for this weekend’s semi final cup clash against Wigan Athletic, it is good news that they will soon be returning to the fold in a week at the most.
We also heard that Aaron Ramsey should be returning to the Arsenal starting line up for the Wigan game, whilst Rosicky, Chamberlain and Gibbs could also overcome fitness doubts. However I think arguably the most positive outcome of the injury update was hearing that Jack Wilshere could also soon return to the team. .......Read the full article here
I am not sure if it is just me, but judging from the comments from Arsenal fans over the week I don”t think so, but the crushing despair and worry that followed last weekend’s tame display at Everton has slowly been replaced by excitement and growing confidence in the last few days.
I really hope that the same has happened with the Arsenal players and, to be fair, they have got plenty of reason to look forward to the Wembley semi-final against Wigan Athletic. The Gunners are quite rightly strong favourites for the cup and they need to feed off that rather than let it weigh on them. .......Read the full article here
Are you sitting down Arsenal fans? Because I have a shock for you; Arsenal have got big injury problems for this weekend’s crucial FA cup semi-final against Wigan. Surprised? No I didn’t think so. This is beyond deja vu, as every week we seem to be sweating on the fitness of a few players, not to mention the long term absentees that we have to without.
Arsene Wenger has given Arsenal.com an update on the latest injury news and it does not sound good. As well as still waiting for the return of Laurent Koscielny and Mesut Ozil, the Gunners could be without key players Tomas Rosicky, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Kieran Gibbs when we run out on to the famous Wembley turf to take on Wigna Athletic. .......Read the full article here
Wenger questions player’s use of drugs!
Whilst drug tests searching for illegal substance misuse in the professional game is becoming an ever increasingly high profile topic, it has never really been a problem for Arsenal. But maybe it is the use of legal drugs that has been causing the club a problem this season.
Arsenal has always been a club that keeps a close watchful eye over the players’ treatment when it comes to nutrition and medical care in order to make sure that the players are the fittest and healthiest they can be. Our main problem seems to be nursing those players back to health when an injury does occur, but have we let our stance on the player’s private lives slip? .......Read the full article here
I think that Arsene Wenger has shown remarkable forbearance this season by not blaming all of the problems Arsenal have faced on bad luck. The Frenchman has not moaned too much about the awful decisions from referees that have cost us valuable points, except maybe the Szczesny red card against Bayern Munich. And he has not blames our recent slide down from the summit of the Premier League on the crippling injury list, until now that is. .......Read the full article here
Why is Ozil taking so long to come back? by Ash
Arsenal’s £42 million man Mesut Ozil has arguably failed to live up to his expectation since coming to the Premier League. At first he was a revelation to Arsenal football club. I have not seen a player be so widely accepted by all fans alike than Ozil was when he first came. His impact was instant with an assist within 10 minutes of his debut. His fine form continued in all competitions and it seemed as if Ozil was not going to have any trouble with settling down at Arsenal. .......Read the full article here
Finally we have an injury story that is not about Arsenal and their players, although it could have a significant impact on the Gunners’ season. Although Arsenal are still the Premier League team with the most players on the sidelines, our weekend opponents Everton are not far behind and could be without two of their key players, Ross Barkley and Phil Jagielka, for Sunday’s crunch clash at Goodison Park.
According to physioroom.com, Arsenal have eight players out; Monreal, Koscielny, Ozil, Ramsey, Wilshere, Walcott, Ramsey and Diaby. Of them, only Monreal looks like having a chance of featuring this weekend, so any help we can get with Everton injuries is clearly welcome. .......Read the full article here
This is the news that every Arsenal fan has been waiting for since the start of the year. Aaron Ramsey, the player who was voted as Player of the Month by Gooners for the first four months of the season, Super Aaron Ramsey, is back in the Arsenal squad to face Everton on Sunday.
Arsene Wenger has given Arsenal.com an injury update and it really is a massive boost to the Gunners’ hopes for the rest of the season. There is more good news about Nacho Monreal, as the Spanish left back is also back in the squad for Sunday, but none of the other injured Gunners are ready yet. .......Read the full article here
After what happened a month or so ago, there is no way that Arsenal Football Club will be taking many risks with the young Welsh midfield star Aaron Ramsey. But everyone connected with the Gunners will have their fingers crossed that Ramsey’s race to be ready to face Wigan Athletic at Wembley in 10 days is successful.
According to a Daily Mail report, the 23-year old, who was undoubtedly the star man for Arsenal in the first half of the season, is quietly confident that his return this time will not suffer a setback. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal may need to hand out photos to all the stewards and some of the players ahead of training on Tuesday, other wise Abou Diaby could be thrown off the site. The tall Frenchman has been away from a football pitch for so long that people could be forgiven for forgetting what he looks like. But the player who even Arsene Wenger thought might never play again is set to start training again On April 1st. .......Read the full article here
