After the first game of the season was turned around into a great start for Arsenal, people kept saying that the Gunners would not be able to handle the pressure. But Arsenal kept going and kept proving them wrong. When the season finishes, we will have spent the most weeks at the top.
Scant consolation, I know, but it was not pressure that caused our downfall, it was the lack of players, mainly due to the desperately unlucky string of injuries and partly due to Wenger’s failings in the transfer market. Pressure, Arsenal can deal with, so for Roberto Martinez to suggest that he would rather be chasing than leading is daft, as alluded to by Arsene Wenger in a Sky Sports report. .......Read the full article here
BBC Pundit suggests who could replace Wenger at the helm! by Ash
Arsenal don’t seem to have the best relationship with the media and more often than not, if they aren’t making up rubbish transfer rumours or trying to cause a stir between the players at the club, than they are exploiting Arsene Wenger and his team in every way possible. However this time they have managed to speak about a topic on everyone’s lips. The topic being, ‘if Arsene Wenger goes this summer, who will replace him?’ .......Read the full article here
After another disappointing summer in the transfer window, Arsenal fans were grinding their teeth in frustration, which then turned to anger after the Gunners were beaten at home by Aston Villa on the first day of the Premier League season. Then Arsenal went on a fantastic run and it looked like we would enjoy a really successful season, but we are back to square one. .......Read the full article here
Finally we have an injury story that is not about Arsenal and their players, although it could have a significant impact on the Gunners’ season. Although Arsenal are still the Premier League team with the most players on the sidelines, our weekend opponents Everton are not far behind and could be without two of their key players, Ross Barkley and Phil Jagielka, for Sunday’s crunch clash at Goodison Park.
According to physioroom.com, Arsenal have eight players out; Monreal, Koscielny, Ozil, Ramsey, Wilshere, Walcott, Ramsey and Diaby. Of them, only Monreal looks like having a chance of featuring this weekend, so any help we can get with Everton injuries is clearly welcome. .......Read the full article here
Unless something is brewing underneath the water and away from the media attention, nobody is expecting Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger to leave the club at the end of the season. In fact most agree that it seems likely that Le prof will be signing a new contract with the Gunners after his current deal expires in the summer. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal did not go out of the Champions League to Bayern because of the game in Munich, but if it wasn’t for a brilliant penalty save from Lukasz Fabianski, they would have lost both legs of the last 16 tie. And both would have been directly attributable to, let’s say debatable, decisions by the officials.
I know people have been saying that Laurent Koscielny should have been more careful because it was Arjen Robben and everyone knows he will go down if touched. Hold on a minute, don’t the referees know this as well? And should that not mean that they are less likely to give a penalty or free kick to the diving Dutchman? And why was he not booked for his outrageous dive in the first half? .......Read the full article here
The feeling that Arsenal fans from all round the world are experiencing at this junction contains a sort of duality. On one hand we sense that the quality and situation of the team has been unprecedented in the past decade, and on the other hand we are agonisingly watching (or suffering) the same indecision, confusion, not-knowing-what-you-really-want attitude from the board and Le Prof. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal have been looking for a world class striker to join the club since arguably the summer of last year, however as of yet we haven’t managed to get pen to paper. Many have passed with Gonzalo Higuain, Karim Benzema and Luis Suarez all either being forced to remain at their respective clubs or signing elsewhere than the Arsenal, however Porto’s Jackson Martinez seemed to be a different case. .......Read the full article here
It is all go on the striker situation for Arsenal. As well as being linked to almost any player who has put a football into a net, the Gunners have already suffered injuries to two of the front men and had some good news on strikers coming back from injury.
So it is a bit difficult to know just what is going on. The painful blow of finding out that Theo Walcott is out for the rest of the season has been mitigated somewhat by the good news on Nicklas Bendtner’s early return as well as Olivier Giroud having already returned to training. .......Read the full article here
Hello Arsenal fans, I’m guessing my attempted post will be a bit too short, but I love your site and just want to share without the abuse in the comments section! Ha Ha. I just wanted to say, as a die hard arsenal fan, I’m finding it hard to single out a player for credit so far this season. .......Read the full article here
We may only be a few days into the month of January but there have already been some moves in the transfer market regarding Arsenal. Although sadly it’s not quite the good news that you may have been expecting and it fact, its players on the way out that is the main topical focus. .......Read the full article here
With the January transfer window just days away, the stories and speculation concerning Arsenal and possible new signings is about to go through the roof. Most Arsenal fans are hoping for a few good signings, although they will probably be happy with just one. As long as that one is a top class striker that is.
So the news from Portugal that the Colombian international striker Jackson Martinez is keen on a move to the Premier League is very encouraging indeed. We have all heard Arsene Wenger talk about how hard it is to get real quality in January, especially when the players in question are playing for a successful club. .......Read the full article here
