Is Wenger right to get so excited about Ozil at Arsenal?

When Arsene Wenger was interviewed after Arsenal’s emphatic second straight win in the Champions League group of death, he surprised quite a few people with his reaction. Wenger is usually good in interviews and is always positive about his team and players, even if most of us thought they had been poor.

But when he was asked about the club’s record signing Mesut Ozil, and the German’s influence, Wenger’s face lit up like a small boy in a sweetshop, and the suave Frenchman actually gushed. It was as if he couldn’t believe he really played for Arsenal, and even the manager was surprised at how good he was.

Silent Stan speaks out on Arsenal, Wenger and Suarez transfer

The majority shareholder of Arsenal Football Club is the American billionaire Stan Kroenke, who with his family owns lots of other sports teams in America. His nickname `Silent` Stan is well earned, because we rarely hear anything from him, even on his rare visits to see the Gunners play, but he has recently given an interview and revealed a lot more than usual.

Continental B-team system to propel Arsenal above Barcelona?

There is a lot of talk and speculation flying around at the minute about how to improve the England national side, and the latest proposal could be fantastic news for Arsenal Football Club. The idea being discussed is to bring English football more into line with Europe by allowing and encouraging the bigger clubs to have a formal arrangement with lower clubs in a `feeder` capacity.

Golden Boot? With Arsenal the sky’s the limit for Giroud

After a slow start to his Arsenal career, the France international Olivier Giroud got going and ended up having a decent, if not spectacular first season in the Premier League. The striker showed flashes of brilliance, like his goal against Brighton and some of his clever flicks in link up play, but he was guilty of some poor finishing at times.

So far this season, his finishing has been vastly better, while his link up play, touches on the ball and movement off it have been even better than last time. That is why nobody found it strange when the Mirror reported that Giroud is targeting the Premier League Golden Boot this season.

Arsenal’s new star Ozil is BETTER than MESSI

I can’t speak for the rest of the Arsenal fans, in fact I can’t really speak at all because my mouth is full of flies after walking around with my jaw hanging open since Monday night. However, I am going to go out on a limb and say that we are all excited about the prospect of Mesut Ozil playing at the Emirates.

The reaction from the football world continues to roll in, with many experts and players expressing their admiration of Arsene Wenger in securing the German international’s signature and their surprise at Florentino Perez and Real Madrid in letting him leave.

Is the Arsenal coaching to blame for our injury crisis?

Why do Arsenal get so many injuries? by Raymondo

I’ve been a Gooner for 63 years, was a qualified referee and have a Preliminary FA Coaching Badge so I believe I have a little knowledge of the game. I would like to submit a brief article for consideration after just registering for the site. After playing, officiating and watching the great game for over 60 years, I have a theory as to why we seem to get a disproportionate number of injuries, compared to the rest of the Premiership.

Arsenal reduced to Michu and we can’t even get him!!

Laudrup waves away Arsenal interest by Ash

Premier League Club manager Michael Laudrup has closed the door on Arsenal’s transfer interest regarding Swansea City striker Michu, after it was reported in the media that Arsene Wenger would turn his attention to the Spanish danger man should the club’s final efforts for Luis Suarez be rejected.

Wenger’s view of the price tags on Arsenal targets

Hello all Gunners around the world, I am Peter, TheNigerianGunner (my new name for JustArsenal comments). This is pretty much my first article ever and i ask to please bear with me as I’m not a professional. :-)

Ok, to the point. We Gunners everywhere are frustrated by the lack of Arsenal signing yet we are linked to every available player thanks to the English press. I was sitting and wondering, saying out loud to myself: What is wrong with Wenger?? Where’s the 70million?? Then I asked: What is this old man thinking?? that’s when it hit me….

Barcelona aim to end Arsenal’s hopes by tapping up Rooney

It may be that Wayne Rooney stays where he is this summer, but if he was to leave then Arsenal were rumoured to near the front of the queue of clubs hoping to sign him. There are only a few clubs that could meet the conditions of the England striker, including transfer fee, wage demands and being in the Champions League. The fact that Rooney would not have to adjust to a new country and new league should also be an advantage for the Gunners.

Barcelona stars that could replace Gervinho at Arsenal

Arsenal to raid Barcelona? by Stefan

Two weeks ago Marseille declared interest in Arsenal “deadwood” winger Gervinho who has failed to win the love of Arsenal fans in his two year career at Arsenal. Most fans would happily see the back of him at this point and if they do I believe Arsenal can capitalize on a situation in Spain.

Every football fan in the world knows at this point that Brazilian ace Neymar has sealed a move to Barcelona and Barcelona’s wingers/forwards will be struggling for game time considering how many of them there are. That is why Arsenal should make a move for one of their wingers before anybody else swoops in and takes him. Here is a list of players that play in that position.

How Wenger can make Arsenal more like Spain

Arsenal and the tiki-taka system by Sam

Arsene Wenger has his own clear football philosophy and, since taking over as the Arsenal manager nearly 20 years ago, he has gradually moulded the Gunners into the team we see now. In recent years, of course, his model has had to be rebuilt regularly due to the loss of key players such as Cesc Fabregas, through no fault of his own, but he is trying to achieve perfection.

Arsenal to sign Bayern left back as a defensive midfielder?

The Arsenal fans are quite used to seeing Arsene Wenger mess about with players and their positions, sometimes with great success, so maybe we shouldn’t be too surprised to heat that the French manager is considering signing a left back as the Gunners’ new defensive midfielder.

David Alaba is the Austrian international who is currently riding high after winning the Champions League, Bundesliga title and the German version of the FA cup with Bayern Munich. So you would think the chances of getting the 20-year old to leave his current club were zero to very small. According to the Daily Star, however, that is just what Wenger is thinking of doing.
