Have Arsenal really avoided disaster?

Hello Arsenal fans, it is good to feel positive again isn’t it?They say that a week is a long time in politics, and the same can certainly be said of football. Arsenal have had some terrible weeks for sure, but if you think back to the nerves and frustration we were all feeling a week ago, this one has been brilliant.

Two wins and an Everton loss have got us all dreaming of an FA cup trophy and feeling confident of being at the top table in Europe for the 17th consecutive season. Failure to do that, as Lukas Podolski said before the game against West Ham, would be a disaster, but have we really avoided that disaster or are we just getting ahead of ourselves a little?

Arsenal boss right to snub Rodgers and Mourinho for PFA awards

Arsene Wenger may well have been a strong candidate himself, if Arsenal had not let their title challenge slip in 2014, but the Frenchman does not seem too keen on the manager who does lead his team to the Premier League trophy winning it either, and I do not blame him one bit. And this is not because both of them have shown disrespect to Arsenal and our French manager, although that does not help them in my eyes.

Arsenal transfer pursuit of Remy could be doomed

A lot is riding on whether Arsenal can finish the season strongly and hold off the Champions League charge of Everton and Spurs(lol couldn’t resist a little joke). As well as the stress levels and happiness of all of us long-suffering fans, the summer transfer business could be dependent on which of the European competitions the Gunners are in.

There is no suggestion that this is why the transfer of Loic Remy is in danger, but something has given the manager of his current club, Newcastle United, a reason to be confident and optimistic of still having Remy at St. James’ Park next season, as revealed in a Guardian report.

Wenger’s Arsenal career deserves NO criticism says Hull boss

There seems to be a bit of a love-in going on between Arsenal and Hull City, or between the two managers of the clubs at least. After Arsene Wenger praised Steve Bruce and Tony Pulis in his pre-match press conference, suggesting that either one of them should be up for the Premier League manager of the year award, Bruce has returned the compliment.

In a Sky Sports report, the Hull City boss has expressed his surprise at the treatment of Wenger in recent years. It seems that Wenger is right up there in Bruce’s book and he should get nothing but credit for what he has done in his 17 years in charge of the Gunners.

Is Arteta set to be Arsenal manager one day?

When Mikel Arteta decided to accept Arsene Wenger’s offer and move to Arsenal from Everton, I’m not sure if he realised that he would also be asked to change his style of play and move back into a more deep lying midfield role. But he accepted his new position with no complaints and has done sterling work for the Gunners ever since.

Wenger reveals why Ozil has struggled at Arsenal

Arsene Wenger and most of the Arsenal fans are hoping to see Mesut Ozil back in action on Sunday. The German international has missed the last seven games with a hamstring problem picked up in the second leg of the Champions League clash away to Bayern Munich and has been back in full training for a week or so.

The FIVE players Arsenal need this summer

My wish list for the summer transfer window by Dboy

It is no secret that Arsenal need to do some serious business once this season is over. This year has seen our team tumble from first place on the table to fighting for our much coveted fourth place again.

Agent confirms Arsenal interest in German defender

It has become increasingly likely that Bacary Sagna has definitely decided to move on this summer, as he continually refuses to agree to a new contract at Arsenal, so it is little surprise that the Gunners are looking for a new long-term replacement in the meantime.

Today the Metro reports that Mino Grillo, the agent of the Eintracht Frankfurt defender Sebastian Jung has confirmed that Arsenal have been keeping tabs on his client.

Grillo said: “In England we know Arsenal are very strongly on his trail for the summer,”

Should Fabianski or Szczesny play for Arsenal in FA Cup Final?

After Lukasz Fabianski’s heroics in Arsenal’s penalty shoot out against Wigan, surely he should be a shoe-in to carry on his run of playing in every FA Cup match this season, but now it seems that Wojciech Szczesny is also hoping that he can get the nod to play in the prestigious final against Hull City.

It now seems clear that Fab is leaving for the Bundesliga at the end of the season, so perhaps there is a case for Wenger giving Szczesny back his Number One jersey, especially as the manager has clearly made his choice over which is the better keeper.

Is Wenger right that Arsenal get a rough deal from TV?

Yet again Arsenal have seen their fixtures disrupted with just a few games to go in their fight for a Top Four place in the Premier League. Arsenal have had their game against Hull moved to Sunday, while Chelsea’s game against Sunderland has been moved to Saturday to help our London neighbours to be fresher for their crucial Champions League semi-final against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday.

Wenger is seething about the changes and made no bones about accusing the TV companies of favouritism when choosing which games to reschedule. He said: “We never got any help on that front. Never,”

Should Arsenal offer Kim Kallstrom another year?

Let’s be honest Arsenal fans. How many of you thought that we would never see Kim Kallstrom start a game for the Gunners after it was revealed that he had a micro-fracture in his spine when he signed on January deadline day? Pretty much all of us then, because he was only supposed to be a stop gap transfer while Aaron Ramsey got better.

Here’s how Arsenal CAN get the best from Podolski…

The Enigma Called Lucas Podolski by Uche

Lucas Podolski is one of the most efficient and lethal finishers in the Premier League, never mind at Arsenal. Just look at his conversion rate and variety of goals and you will agree to this without a doubt. So why oh why do we bemoan the absence of strikers in Arsenal?
