It is competition time again Arsenal fans. Nine days after the Gunners completed a fantastic and comprehensive win over north London rivals Tottenham in the FA cup, Arsene Wenger takes his players to Birmingham to take on Aston Villa. And you can make the day even better by entering our competition and winning yourself an exclusive Just Arsenal T-shirt.
Arsenal need to win to go back above Chelsea and Man City to reclaim top spot in the Premier League. On paper this should be no problem, especially after a nice break for the Arsenal players to recharge their batteries. Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil are definitely back, but Kieran Gibbs and Aaron Ramsey are only possibles. Part of the competition is predicting the first Arsenal player to score, so obviously guessing the right starting XI is a bonus. .......Read the full article here
It is safe to say that Arsenal Football Club are sick and tired of injuries. After Arsene Wenger wielded the axe in the summer, releasing lots of young and fringe players, the Gunners were left with a squad best described as lean. And so the last thing Arsenal needed was lots of injuries, but that is exactly what we have had ever since the first day. .......Read the full article here

It seems a long time ago now, but Arsenal got off to a disastrous start to the season. After a confidence boosting win over Manchester City in the final pre-season friendly, and an early goal from Olivier Giroud, it all went wrong for the Gunners. With a bit of help from the referee, Aston Villa came back and Arsenal wilted.
To cap it all off, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was replaced at halftime and has not played for us since, due to an unfortunate knee injury. However, according to physioroom.com, the talented young Englishman is penciled in for a return on January 13th. Funnily enough, Arsenal’s opponents that day will be Aston Villa and it could be the start of a great few months for Chamberlain. .......Read the full article here
The transfer rumours linking Arsenal with a large number and wide variety of goalkeepers has been going on for some time now, but they were especially fervent this summer. It is understandable really, because of the somewhat erratic performances of the young Polish international keeper Wojciech Szczesny, and the sale of Vito Mannone.
When the 27-year old Italian Emiliano Viviano was brought in on loan for the season in the last few days of the transfer window, it appeared that Wenger was happy to keep faith with Szczesny, and he has not been disappointed so far. The 23-year old is looking as sharp as he ever has and has spoken about how the wake-up call he got when Wenger dropped him last season has done its job. .......Read the full article here
Today Christian Benteke, the reported Tottenham and Arsenal target, has handed in a transfer request to Aston Villa – and their manager Paul Lambert continues to be defiant over letting the big Belgian go.
You would have to say that Tottenham have been far more active in their pursuit of him than Arsenal and that’s okay. I’m here to say that Arsenal do not need Benteke and we can let Spurs have him and laugh next season as they finish fifth, once again failing to qualify for the Champions League. .......Read the full article here
There is probably going to be some more action in the summer transfer window for Arsenal, but the signing of the Argentinean international Gonzalo Higuain from Real Madrid should have finally convinced the Arsenal fans that Arsene Wenger IS willing to spend the club’s money and wants to win trophies as much as we do.
It has been frustrating so far this summer, and the early optimism felt by Arsenal fans after our great Premier League run in, denying Tottenham a Champions League place again and hearing about a £70 million war chest for transfers, gradually evaporated. It is understandable after years of disappointment and dread in transfer windows, but we just needed to be patient. .......Read the full article here
The Premier League fixture list is out today and so Arsenal fans can take a look and see what is coming. It has been talked about a lot, but this coming season really is shaping up to be a watershed one, with Arsene Wenger being the only manager still in place out of the top four clubs.
There is a feeling that the Frenchman could go the same way as Ferguson, Mancini and Benitez if there is no significant improvement in the fortunes of Arsenal this season, but there is also quite a lot of optimism from fans and players that we can follow on from our brilliant finish to last season and really challenge for the title. .......Read the full article here
This transfer window is beginning to look like a typical Arsenal cliche, with the news that the Gunners are signing a very promising young English player and a striker from the French Second Division!
Everyone knows about Yaya Sanogo from Auxerre, but the first promising young Englishman is Aston Villa’s Dan Crowley, and it has been revealed by Jeorge Bird’s Arsenal Youth website that the 15 year-old midfielder (also touted as the “New Jack Wilshere”) is due at London Colney today to seal the move. .......Read the full article here
Attempts to keep Benteke away from Arsenal are unconvincing. by FD
Of all the players linked with a summer move to the Emirates, Benteke, the Aston Villa striker, is one of the more interesting. For a start, he’s demonstrated his ability to score goals in the Premiership. And he’s done that while playing in a struggling side so could surely do an even better job at Arsenal? .......Read the full article here
When Arsene Wenger signed the Spanish international left back Nacho Monreal on transfer deadline day, I must confess I knew very little about the new Arsenal player. The 27-year old arrived from Malaga and was thrown straight in at the deep end because of the injury to Kieran Gibbs and the shocking form of Andre Santos, but he has coped very well. .......Read the full article here
