Why Arsenal must persuade Wenger to stay!!

Is the glass half full? Only matters if you’re thirsty by Zac

Most articles start with a line like, I have been an Arsenal fan since I was knee high to Kylie Minogue or something along those lines. Well I am proud to say my first love is rugby league and my second is Arsenal. Now if anyone watches rugby league you will notice the team ethic of, take a hit for the man next to you, the free flowing rugby which at times seems “off the cuff” but the players at the top will tell you it is all earned on the training pitch. Now this is where my two loves are very similar.

Arsenal boss right to snub Rodgers and Mourinho for PFA awards

Arsene Wenger may well have been a strong candidate himself, if Arsenal had not let their title challenge slip in 2014, but the Frenchman does not seem too keen on the manager who does lead his team to the Premier League trophy winning it either, and I do not blame him one bit. And this is not because both of them have shown disrespect to Arsenal and our French manager, although that does not help them in my eyes.

Owen helps Wenger with backhanded Arsenal compliment

Owen on Arsenal by Ash

Michael Owen is known to be quite a controversial figure amongst the Arsenal fans, whether it be on the pitch or more recently off it with his media outbursts and regular columns. However this time I think he has said something very worthy that the Gunners should take note of.

In a Daily Star report he is recorded stating, “If Arsenal win the FA Cup and get fourth in the league, from my point of view it would be a good season. I said at the start of season they’re a step away from the title. I don’t think their players are of the level of City, Chelsea and Liverpool’s.

Drmic denial alerts Arsenal rivals to possible transfer hijack!

Arsenal may or may not be preparing to sign Josip Drmic, the young Swiss striker who has taken the Bundesliga by storm this season by scoring the same number of goals as Robert Lewandowski in a much worse side than the Pole’s Borussia Dortmund. But if the Gunners are trying to negotiate a deal with FC Nurenberg for their 21-year old star, it is likely to be much harder now.

Arsenal CAN still be champions you know! Here’s how…

How we could still win the league by JMT

Ok, I officially think I might be going crazy but I still believe Arsenal can win the Premier league and here are the reasons why. Currently we are 4th on 64 points with 32 games played, City 3rd with 67 points, Chelsea 2nd with 69 points and 32 games played and Liverpool top with 71 points from 32 games. Out of City’s last 8 fixtures I believe that Southampton at home in a week’s time and Liverpool and Everton away are their key games. City seem to have gotten over the poor away form that followed them at the beginning of the season but these matches still pose a difficulty and any blips might see the race continue to be wide open. Add to this the fact they will also have to go to Palace who under Pulis look very organized I would hardly say they have the easiest fixture list.

Can Arsenal really relax about Champions League spot?

Do Arsenal really have a top four place confirmed? by Ash

After beating our great North London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur in a 1-0 at White Hart Lane on Sunday, there have been a few suggestions that Arsenal have confirmed a top four finish with 5th placed Spurs currently sitting 9 points behind. A win for Arsenal has placed us back into the top three, level on points with Liverpool, however I still think there is a little more left to be considered that what the media has given us.

Arsenal CAN win title but others are stronger says Parlour

Ray Parlour knows a thing about winning trophies with Arsenal, having claimed nine major honours during his long career with the Gunners. And we know that the Romford Pele is a massive Arsenal fan and would love the current crop of players to silence the doubters and go on to lift the Premier League trophy this season.

But realistically, the 41-year old thinks it might just be a bit too much for us this season, with our rivals Man City, Liverpool and Chelsea all looking very strong. Parlour told Sky Sports that the strike force of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, as compared to the Arsenal one of Olivier Giroud and, erm… could make the difference.

Chelsea leave door ajar but can Arsenal go through it?

I wrote an article yesterday about Arsenal needing Man City to beat Hull City in order to put pressure om Chelsea, and it could hardly have worked any better. A stuttering performance from the Blues which ended up with Jose Mourinho, Ramires and Willian being sent off as Aston Villa grabbed all three points.

Not only does this bring Chelsea right back into the reach of the Gunners, it also weakens them for next weekend’s clash between the two Premier League rivals. Mourinho will not be allowed to communicate with his players and Ramires, who won them the game with his cheating antics last season, will not be able to play. And with Willian out, the decision to sell Juan Mata to Man United is not looking too clever.

Idiotic Anti-Arsenal article blames Wilshere for his injury?!?

I am used to seeing stupid and misinformed stuff about Arsenal in the media, but today seemed to hit a new low. A spectacularly blinkered and idiotic article in the Metro lays the blame for the injury Jack Wilshere suffered in the England game against Denmark, not at the feet of Daniel Agger who made the tackle, not at the England physios for failing to discover the injury or bring the midfielder off, but at the feet of the Arsenal player himself.

Previous run-ins prove Arsenal CAN win BPL title

Well Arsenal fans, we are into the last 10 Premier League games of the season. The Gunners had a fantastic first half of the campaign but have dropped off a bit in recent weeks. We are sitting in third place, four behind current leaders Chelsea and behind second placed Liverpool on goal difference. Man City are behind us but will leapfrog Arsenal if they win their games in hand.

So we are looking up obviously, having a strong finish and putting pressure on our rivals, but at the same time, we are just six points ahead of Tottenham who are our next opponents. Arsenal.com have compiled stats to show how the Gunners tend to do in the last 10 games and it is pretty encouraging.

How rivals could help Arsenal to win Premier League title

When we hear about a tough run of games in the media, it always seems to be Arsenal that they are talking about. But that just does not make sense. Apart from the cup competitions, we all have to play the same teams, home and away, so just how much worse is our impending fixture list than our rivals?

Well we do have another tough period coming up, that’s for sure. Four Premier League games in a row against teams currently in the top seven is no picnic, but that is about it and the last five games are the sort we have been winning all season.

Wenger says Arsenal could win BPL on final day

Whereas all the football pundits and so-called experts were predicting another frightful February for Arsenal, the Gunners have got to the end of a testing month still bang in the title race. One point behind lucky league leaders Chelsea, and Man City if they win their game in hand, gives Arsenal a real shout of lifting the Premier League trophy in May.

We haven’t been exactly brilliant this month, but neither have our rivals, so Arsene Wenger is predicting that the champions might not be known until the final day. According to an Arsenal.com report, the Frenchman feels that consistency is the key to becoming champions of England this season. Many people think that the games between the big teams could be decisive and, as Wenger says, all of us have some tough games to come.
