Arsenal proved they CAN fight to hold on to the lead…..

Scoring too early Cost Us by Dan S

While watching Arsenal’s game with QPR I was amazed at the criticism the team was receiving from Gooners on Twitter and Facebook. Such was the extent of negativity that many seemed less confident of us finishing in the top 4 then they were before the game kicked off at Loftus Road.

The Arsenal team to beat Man Utd – just add some fight and hard work!

How to beat United! by Big Gun

Arsenal should use The Ox, Podolski and Walcott as strikers. Leave Podolski as CF because Ox and Walcott are much better suited on the wings, they can use their speed more effectively. Let’s not forget, Ox is ambi-dexterous, so if he wants to cut in and have a shot, he can. He can cross equally well with his left foot.

The Ox says its going to be tough but Arsenal just need to keep going

The young Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is very happy that the Gunners took three points from Swansea yesterday, but he is well aware that they simply have to go on winning and not worry what their rivals for the Champions League are doing in their own matches.

“Everyone in the Premier League feels pressure to get results,” he said. “It is part of being a footballer. We have to take that in our stride because we know we have the characters to deal with it.

The positives Arsenal need to take into Premier League

The much talked about 2nd Leg Champions league game between Arsenal and Bayern Munich has come and gone, it’s no longer news that we lost gallantly on the pitch at the Allianz Arena in Munich yesterday against the over hyped Germans. The Germans thought the match was already won due to the mouth watering 3-1 score that they got at the Emirates three weeks ago. The pre match talk was about “resting” some of the more established players and with Jack Wilshere, Lukas Podolski and Bacary Sagna being out through injury. The end result proved book makers wrong as it was not anticipated. Two goals, from Giroud and Laurent Koscielny, made the team leave the Allianz Arena with their heads high .

Podolski – Arsenal will fight for a result in Munich

The German winger Lukas Podolski admitted that Arsenal were not really surprised by the quality of Bayern Munich’s game at the Emirates on Tuesday, but he believes that in the second half the Gunners showed that they could compete with them, and he still believes it is possible to get through after the second leg.

“They’ve played a very good season in Germany,” Lukas said on Arsenal.com. “They are a good team and we are not surprised. We must look at our match and our match was not so good in the first half, but better in the second half.

Wenger – Arsenal have the desire and will fight Tottenham for Top Four Place

Arsenal have finally found their true form since Theo Walcott signed his contract extension last month, and they are now fighting hard for every single point as they attempt to close the gap on their great rivals Tottenham Hotspurs.

Although there is still a four point gap, Wenger will take heart that he has always managed to finish above Spurs since his arrival at Arsenal, and when the Independent asked him straight off if he thought he would leapfrog Spurs once again, he replied: “There are many games to go,”

Arsenal are starting to look like the real deal at last!

Things could be looking up! By SB

Arsenal are once again a team. The performance against Stoke showed real cameradery, heart and pride for the mighty cannon. The boys looked like they were willing to fight for each other until the very death, which is what they achieved.

For the first time in a long time, when we scored the whole team joined in for the celebration, although it came with a slice of luck, they knew they thoroughly deserved it. It reminded me of the invincible days when we would score the whole team joined in on the huddle of glory. It brings a tear to a Gooners eye.

Wenger – Arsenal will have to fight for fourth place

Arsene Wenger saw his team lose a home game to Manchester City for the first time in 37 years yesterday, and has admitted that Arsenal really need to up their confidence levels, especially in defence.

He said: “Overall we started too timidly, with not enough authority in a game like that, and we allowed them to dictate from the start. We paid very early from it. We didn’t start with enough confidence or enough authority. When you play at home in a game like this you have to dictate your personality, which we did not do, especially defensively.

Arsenal must forget about Southampton

Thomas Vermaelen was understandably disappointed with the way Arsenal played against Southampton at St. Mary’s yesterday, and the Arsenal captain knows that the whole team need to improve in the next game. He is not too worried, however, because of the previous four league games, which we won should give the players plenty of belief that the Saints game was just a blip.

“We are disappointed with the result, with the way we played, but I think we have to stay confident and the spirit has to be good all the time.

Arsenal Debate: Should Arsenal Lead the Fight For Justice?

Arsenal FC Should Lead The Movement For Reformation By JG

Arsene Wenger, speaks out in regards of “official decisions” quite regularly during the course of any season; and this season hasn’t been any different. Wenger has always been one to point out the absolute nonsensical tendencies of the so-called “football justice system”, and has been banned on occasion for being too passionate while presenting his case. Just yesterday, Wenger spoke out against the FA’s recent “howlers” in regards to Bashotelli and Derry, presenting a sound case, advocating for an “overhaul” of the current broken system.

Vermaelen – Arsenal ready to go into battle against Stoke! (And Rosicky will back him up)

Thomas Vermaelen has issued a rallying call to his Arsenal team-mates, and says that the Gunners must be prepared for a battle at the Britannia Stadium this afternoon, but also have to keep their passing game ready to help score the goals needed.

“It is always a hard game when we go there, you know it is going to be a battle,” Vermaelen said on Arsenal.com. “If there is a battle, sometimes you have to fight back. But the main thing is to play our own game, with quick passing. That is the way to score.

Vermaelen – Arsenal have a fight for Third Place and it won’t be easy
