With Frimpong’s disappearance within the Arsenal team soon turning into his exit from the Emirates, some believe that another young central defensive midfielder could also soon be following in his footsteps. Young Frenchman Francis Coquelin may not have taken the zero to hero route yet, but it could certainly be the other way round, seeing that he may never make it with the Gunners and instead choose to move on this summer. .......Read the full article here
Emmanuel Frimpong has already been out on loan from Arsenal three times already and has not played a single game for the Gunners this season. With all the injuries that Arsene Wenger has had to deal with, the 22-year old has finally accepted that he is not going to make it at the Emirates and so has agreed to join Championship strugglers Barnsley.
He may have been hoping for another loan move to try and show what he can do, but the move is permanent, bringing an end to his Arsenal career. A lot of fans have continued to hold out hope that Frimpong would begin to fulfil his early potential sooner or later, but it seems that Wenger feels he has had enough chances. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal Football Club are understandably proud of their youth system. It is a strong policy of the club under Arsene Wenger and has produced some exceptional players, even though we have not always been able to hold on to them. But for every Jack Wilshere, Wojciech Szczesny or Kieran Gibbs, there are many more Henri Lansbury’s, who do not quite make the Gunners grade. .......Read the full article here
He may not have played a single minute for Arsenal this season, but Emmanuel Frimpong has still made the news a few times. The Ghanaian’s previous forays into the news via social media have sometimes been embarrassing or not really helpful to the Gunners cause, but his latest move will surely endear him to Gooners everywhere.
Frimpong posted a picture taunting Manchester United and their under-fire manager David Moyes after they lost, yet again, this time to a struggling Sunderland team. The only thing that could have made this pic funnier was if it had Robin van Persie next to him with a board saying Emirates on it. Get on it Frimmy! .......Read the full article here
I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who saw the comical side to Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong’s picture upload of his newly name engraved football boots, on social networking site Twitter. The boots which have ‘Frimpong’ etched into the stitches was the latest in a line of stories to arise about the young midfielder, and he seems to have the knack of hitting the headlines for the wrong reasons. .......Read the full article here
After Emmanuel Frimpong survived a mass clear out by Arsenal of players who were surplus to requirements, it seemed like the Ghanaian born midfielder had a future with the club. When you consider that his playing position of defensive midfielder is one of the least well covered in the Arsenal squad, then this season promised a lot for the 21-year old. .......Read the full article here

There were a few surprise absences as well as a few surprise inclusions however ultimately the majority of the team is nothing more than expected. .......Read the full article here
Does Arsenal have the worst bench in the league? by Ash
Arsenal used to have the best individual players in the league in the likes of Robert Pires, Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Sol Campbell. They were our starting players and a bench of the likes of Fabregas, Flamini, Edu and Reyes meant we had not just the best individuals but the best team squad as a whole. However somehow we have gone from that to this: .......Read the full article here
Arsenal decided to let go off a lot of the players classed as ‘deadwood’ this summer, whether that be by selling them, loaning them or even releasing them in the case of Denilson, Arshavin and Squillaci, however I think one name that we were all quite surprised to see go out of the door was Francis Coquelin. .......Read the full article here
The Arsenal under-21 side were in action last night at the Emirates, and they put in an impressive performance to beat a strong West Brom side by 1 – 0. The goal was a stunning volley from the young German player Serge Gnabry, and it may just have booked him a seat on the coach going up to Sunderland for the Premier League game tomorrow. .......Read the full article here
Arsene Wenger is not willing to take chances, despite Arsenal already being 3-0 up from the away leg in Istanbul last week. Getting in to the group stages of the Champions League is just too important to the club and the players, both already at the club and those we are hoping to arrive in the next six days.
That is why Wenger restrained himself from making wholesale changes, although I hope to see Emmanuel Frimpond, Ryo Miyaichi and Yaya Sanogo come off the bench in the second half when the tie is secured .......Read the full article here
Even though Arsenal are 3-0 up from the away leg in Istanbul, Arsene Wenger will be taking no chances when we take on Fenerbahce at the Emirates tomorrow. Qualifying for the group stages of the Champions League is so important to the club that the boss will want to put out a strong side to avoid any slip ups.
Having said that, I think that Wenger should start the game with Emmanuel Frimpong in the middle. I don’t think it will significantly weaken us, and the 21-year old needs to play sooner or later if he is going to be a squad player for us this season. This game, for me, would be the perfect one in which to give the midfielder his first minutes of the season. .......Read the full article here
