After Arsenal put in their worst performance for a long, long time, the last game you would normally want next is against Manchester United. But this season has seen a different Arsenal as well as a different United. So actually, it could be the perfect game, as long as the Gunners up their game, of course.
United have been our nemesis for a long time, but then Arsenal were like that to Liverpool until yesterday. I am sure that Arsene Wenger and the players are desperate to get one over on United, as well as getting back on track in the title race, so today’s game at Old Trafford could hardly have gone better for the Gunners. .......Read the full article here
As Arsenal were having a bit of a nightmare about a year ago, crashing out of the Capital One cup at Bradford, struggling in the Premier League, Champions League and being eliminated from the FA cup to lower league opposition as well, Polish keeper Wojciech Szczesny looked like he would never achieve his early potential. .......Read the full article here
I am not one of those people who think that Arsenal cannot win the Premier league unless we start to win games against our big rivals and I don’t think Arsene Wenger is either. Of course he wants to beat Chelsea, Man City just as he wants to beat every team he plays, but it is not the be-all-and-end-all for the Gunners. That is winning the title. .......Read the full article here
Will Saturday be point of No Return for Podolski? By Twig
Today marks a great opportunity for Arsenal to widen the gap on some of its rivals, especially with Chelsea having to visit United in a slippery tie. For Gunners, one of the things we’re sure looking forward to is if Podolski will start or come on as a sub in the least.
Last week the cameras immediately rushed towards Podolski when Wenger opted to bring a barely fit Oxlade-Chamberlain on for the injured Rosicky. Podolski’s disappointment was very visible as he shook his head for the world to see. .......Read the full article here

It was great for Arsenal fans to see Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain return to first team action at the end of the win at Aston Villa last night. And there was an element of synchronicity to it as well, because it was against Villa on the opening day when the young England international picked up his injury.
What surprised me about last night, however, was the fact that Lukas Podolski did not get on, despite the fact that Santi Cazorla was having another poor game on the left. The Spaniard has only showed flashes of his ability this season, yet Wenger picks him consistently, while the German forward had one poor game, against Cardiff when he played in the middle, and has not played since. .......Read the full article here

If, and it is a big if, Arsenal are seriously considering a transfer bid for the Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov, we should know about it pretty soon. Because hopefully this time Arsene Wenger will not wait until the last day or two of the transfer window.
Even if he was planning to be patient, the unlucky injury picked up by Nicklas Bendtner yesterday as he scored the vital opening goal against Cardiff, has left Arsenal very short. We don’t know if Olivier Giroud will be ready for Tottenham in the FA cup on Saturday, or even the next Premier League game against Aston Villa on the 13th. So the need is urgent and hopefully we will see a new face at the Emirates in the next week. .......Read the full article here
Even the most optimistic Arsenal fan must realise that the chances of Arsene Wenger being able to sign the `top, top` striker that most of us want are pretty slim, in January at least. It looks like Luis Suarez and Diego Costa are definitely out, while none of the clubs in Europe or fighting for titles will want to lose their striker halfway through the season.
I am still hopeful that the professor has a little transfer magic planned, but I am not exactly holding my breath. That does not mean that there are no good strikers available, and the former Arsenal winger Perry Groves thinks that a great player for the Gunners to sign would be Dimitar Berbatov. .......Read the full article here
There have been a few stories in the media this week about Arsenal being interested in a January transfer move for the Fulham and Bulgaria international striker Dimitar Berbatov. The news, or rumour, was met with relative indifference by a lot of Arsenal fans, who are keen to see the Gunners get a real top quality front man when the transfer window opens.
However, I think we could do a lot worse than signing the talented but often criticised 32-year old, and his performance against Aston Villa earlier certainly added weight to that belief. Berbatov was excellent and did some things effortlessly that most players would not dream of attempting. He assisted Fulham’s first goal and played a sublime pass that led to the penalty which he converted for the second. .......Read the full article here
As Arsenal enter December, with January less than a month away, the rumours regarding transfers have already begun and a major plot being linked with the Gunners at the moment is a story relating Arsenal with Fulham FC player Dimitar Berbatov.
Berbatov is a Bulgarian striker who has plenty of experience on both the international stage and the Premier League game, however that is also his downfall because as he is 32 years old, and so approaching 33 in January, Berbatov is a little too old in my opinion. .......Read the full article here
Fulham 1 – 3 Arsenal We finally get some points on the board
Arsenal managed to finally get the first win of the season thanks to Giroud and Podolski.
We started the game fairly well in what looked a very heavy pitch thanks to the torrential down pour. Eventually, we managed to draw first blood thanks to a fortunate deflection from a Ramsey shot by Giroud that allowed him to dink the ball over the flailing keeper. 0 – 1. .......Read the full article here
