At times last season, it really seemed as if Arsene Wenger’s days in charge of Arsenal Football Club were numbered. The fantastic finish to the season, which saw the Gunners catch up with and overtake north London rivals Tottenham, brought the fans back on side, as did the promise from Ivan Gazidis that the club would now be able to compete with the big boys in the transfer market.
The same anger and subsequent happiness occurred again in the summer transfer market and start of this season, when the signing of Ozil brought the fans back from the brink again. But the January window and Arsenal’s dip in form brought it all back again, and the negative, anti-Wenger comments have been increasing steadily over the last few weeks. .......Read the full article here
Gunners Need to Look at the Bright Side by HairyCustard
Following the signing of Kim Kallstrom from Spartak, many Gooners have taken to Twitter, and indeed, JustArsenal, to display their disgust that our only signing is a 31-year-old Swede well past his prime. Instead of having the Mesut Ozil effect, Kallstrom’s signing seems to have a negative effect on the morale of the fans, and we’d better hope this isn’t the same for the players. .......Read the full article here
Even before Arsenal moved to their new state of the art Emirates stadium, the home ground was not exactly renowned for being the sort of place that opposing teams and fans feared to come to. Highbury and Library may have gone together because they rhymed, but it was sometimes true that the players could have done with a bit more of the Stoke/Britannia feel about it. .......Read the full article here
It was a fantastic moment for Arsenal fans as Theo Walcott gave it to the Tottenham fans with a huge cheesy grin on his face. Some people may have thought it was a bit out of order and if his two raised fingers had been turned the other way round, he would have been in for the same punishment meted out to Jack Wilshere after the Man City game. .......Read the full article here
There have been many stories in the media about Arsene Wenger and the possibility of the Frenchman signing a new Arsenal contract. With his current deal due to run out at the end of this season, the Club and the fans could be forgiven for getting a bit twitchy. Whereas there were calls for Wenger to go last season, as the Gunners endured another disappointing and trophy-less campaign, the form that saw Arsenal overtake Tottenham, grab the last Champions League spot, and shoot to the top of the Premier League, has convinced most people that it would be a disaster if Wenger was to walk away now. .......Read the full article here
Arsene Wenger is not asking the Arsenal fans to bring laser pens to the game to blind the opponents, or to sneak some dodgy Lasagne into their catering supplies, but the Frenchman does think that Gooners have a big part to play in helping Arsenal to success this season.
He is talking about the support, especially at the Emirates. There was plenty of negativity around the place last season, and it is not hard to see why after another year of scraping into the top four and winning no trophies. It is hard sometimes to follow your heart and feel positive when your head is screaming at you otherwise. After the opening day defeat, it got even worse, and I think it was a blessing to the players to have the next two games, against Fulham and Fenerbahce, away from home. .......Read the full article here
Walcott will have the fans off his back for now by Ash
After last night’s performance against Marseille, Arsenal have both some positives and negatives to take away from the game. Whilst in my opinion they are mainly negatives there are of course always some positive aspects, and one of which is that fact Theo Walcott managed to get on the score sheet during the game.
Theo Walcott has largely struggled so far this season and although I know I got a bit of stick last time for slating the English international’s performances against Sunderland especially, Theo Walcott again disappointed in my opinion despite his goal. .......Read the full article here
It seems as though Arsenal have the young Aaron Ramsey back who had the world at his feet and was destined for big things as recent performances show.
If you will think back to when he was a young man entering into the Arsenal squad, you will remember how he was being tipped for big things in football. He came from Cardiff as a young man and Arsene Wenger knew that he was a special talent and so did everybody else. .......Read the full article here
Santiago Cazorla could be forgiven for being very pleased with his first season as an Arsenal player. Being voted by the fans as the Player of the Year could make you think that you had arrived and were comfortable at your new club, but that’s not the way the Spanish international works.
He is understandably pleased with how the fans took to him straight away, and how well he settled into the Arsenal team. The Gunners way of playing under Wenger suits him perfectly, but he has also had to work hard to get used to the Premier League and he will continue to do so, promising that he will be even better next season. .......Read the full article here
The Arsenal vice-captain is not expecting an easy game against Wigan tonight, in fact he thinks the FA cup winners will give it everything they’ve got. He is, however, confident that Arsenal can get the win and the three points we need, as long as they don’t let the occasion get to them.
“They will play for their lives,” said the Spaniard. “For them it’s massive to stay in the Premier League. I’m sure they will give everything they’ve got. .......Read the full article here
ARSENAL’S FANS SHOULD STAND AND ASK FOR KROENKE EXIT by MA
I have been an Arsenal fan since the first time I saw the red and white jersey raising majestically high in the sky of Highbury. My family’s older generations have always been Liverpool supporters. But my heart beats for Arsenal and I am proud to be a Gunner. .......Read the full article here
There has been much discussion about anti-racism in football this season, especially after the John Terry and Luis Suarez affairs, but probably the most ridiculous (and most PC ‘Politically Correct”) was when the police tried to punish Tottenham fans for chanting the Y word, especially as the call themselves the Y*d Army!
Well now the police have asked Arsenal Football Club to warn the fans going to the match to be careful what they are singing under the threat of arrest. A statement on Arsenal.com said: “The Metropolitan Police have informed both clubs that they will be monitoring for offensive chanting and anti-social behaviour both inside and outside White Hart Lane stadium on Sunday, and any behaviour of this nature will result in arrest. .......Read the full article here
