Why Ramsey will win us silverware this season by KJ
Most Arsenal fans will be on a high at the moment, not because of Saturday’s result but because of yesterday’s result. With Wigan knocking out Manchester City, there is a massive chance for Arsenal to finally end their trophy drought with two Championship teams and one mid-table Premier League team left in the cup.
Many fans are getting over-confident with this result and who can blame them? We’ve got the best no.10 in the world and have one of the best defences in the league. Against the teams left in the cup, they should comfortably win the trophy. But we know it won’t be that easy because that’s how football works, especially in England. .......Read the full article here
Ramsey to return stronger than ever! by Ash
With the news that Aaron Ramsey has returned to training with the Arsenal first team and will no doubt soon be back on the pitch, it dampens any lasting concerns surrounding the recent injury crisis to Jack Wilshere. But with the Welshman having been out of action for nearly three months, are we expecting too much of him when he returns? .......Read the full article here
Arsene Wenger has a few selection issues for his Arsenal team facing what could be one of the most important games of the season. Surely the biggest headache the Frenchman has is what to do now Jack Wilshere became the latest Gunner to be sidelined through injury.
I may be wrong, but I am assuming that neither Kim Kallstrom or Aaron Ramsey will be ready. That means that unless Wenger changes his tried and trusted system, Arsenal will play a more defensive midfielder alongside a more forward thinking or box-to-box player. I am making another assumption here, that Mathieu Flamini will be the defensive one. If he isn’t, I want to know why. .......Read the full article here
Why Wilshere’s injury isn’t a major blow to Arsenal by Ash
Although the title may seem a bit strange, a little bit of analytical thinking will suggest just why Jack Wilshere’s latest injury may prove to be not as bad for Arsenal as everyone seems to think. Wilshere at his best is an awesome sight, but it is not one we have been seeing much this season. .......Read the full article here
I just can’t believe it! Another seemingly innocuous injury to an Arsenal player ends up leading to another long spell on the sidelines. This time it is Jack Wilshere who is facing six weeks out of action.
The 22-year old took what looked like a painful blow to the top of his foot from Denmark and Liverpool defender Daniel Agger early on in the England game. But after he played on for the rest of the half ang then re-emerged fore the second half, it was looking like slight damage and one or two games out at the most. .......Read the full article here
It has been the story of the season for Arsenal; injuries, injuries and more injuries. And with a lot of the Gunners involved in international friendly games last night, there was always the possibility that Arsenal would be hit again.
As well as Jack Wilshere taking a painful whack to his foot, which could bruise, swell up or somehow put him out of Saturday’s game against Everton, Laurent Koscielny is also a worry. He didn’t play for France last night, but according to L’Equipe it was more of a precautionary measure after the defender felt a tweak in his hamstring during training. It can’t have been too bad because he was on the bench. .......Read the full article here
Why Flamini has been so important this season! by Ash
When Arsenal re-signed Mathieu Flamini it certainly caused an opinion divide between Arsenal fans. The announcement came late in the transfer window and we still hadn’t spent any of the rumoured excess £100 million that was in the bank for transfers. Yaya Sanogo had been our only signing of the summer in which was supposed to be one full of great rejuvenation with players going out and many world class players coming in. .......Read the full article here
Why does it seem that whenever a large number of Arsenal players head off to international duty, it always Jack Wilshere who is one of the biggest worries. Maybe it is because I am an England fan as well, but I am always biting my nails when he goes into a tackle or is clipped running past someone.
He took another sore one tonight, early on in the England vs. Denmark game, from Liverpool’s Daniel Agger. It wasn’t malicious or anything, but the slow-motion replay showed Jack getting a right whack on the top of his foot. His ankle jarred and it looked like one of those typical pre-world cup metatarsal jobs. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal fans could be set to find out whether the signing of Swedish international Kim Kallstrom at the end of the January transfer window was a complete nonsense or just a P.R. disaster. The 31-year old midfielder is back in full training and might even feature in Saturday’s FA cup 6th round game against Everton, according to The Mirror.
I do not know much about the guy, to be honest. In fact even if he had been fit when we signed him, instead of having a micro-fracture in his back which has kept him out until now and given internet trolls another bullet to fire at Arsenal and Wenger, Kim Kallstrom was not the name any of us were hoping for. .......Read the full article here
Ramsey set to double his deal with a five year extension! by Ash
On a day that has been full of contract news for Arsenal Football Club, with Per Mertesacker and Tomas Rosicky both agreeing 3 year and 1 year extensions respectively, the tables now turn to Aaron Ramsey who is being mooted as the next Arsenal player to sign on the dotted line. .......Read the full article here
Stoke vs Arsenal Preview, Line up and predicted score by KJ
It’s a rarity to have a week’s rest before a game but Arsenal have been afforded such luxury before this crucial game against Stoke. Stoke away has been a terrible game for us. We’ve failed to win there far too many times and it is home to the player that broke Ramsey’s leg and pushed back his development by at least 2 years. .......Read the full article here
A lot of Arsenal fans have been left scratching their heads this season as to why Lukas Podolski has not been used more. Of course, the German forward was out for months with a terrible hamstring injury picked up in just the fourth game of the season against Fenerbahce, which was hugely frustrating for him and the club because he had smashed a double in the previous game and was looking sharp. .......Read the full article here
