In just three days time, Arsenal have a massive game against Tottenham in the FA cup. A few weeks ago this looked like a banker home win for the Gunners. Spurs were in turmoil and Arsenal were sweeping all before them, but things in football can change quicker than Clark Kent in a phone box.
The Gunners have come back well from a tough run of disappointing results, but the problem now is the injury list. With Giroud out, Podolski struggled and Bendtner, who did well and scored a crucial goal, also picked up an injury that ruled him out of the FA cup game. .......Read the full article here
As Arsenal got straight back into the groove with a win against Southampton at the weekend, the Premier League title race is really starting to take shape. And it is looking good for the Gunners, not just because of our own form, but because of the poor performances of two of our biggest rivals, Manchester United and Tottenham.
Tottenham were not just beaten by Manchester City, they were subjected to the kind of beating that could well damage their team morale and and put a giant spanner in the works of their season. It is extra special for Arsenal fans of course, because of the local rivalry, but in practical terms it should mean that we have one less team to worry about. .......Read the full article here
‘Tottenham aren’t Arsenal’s rivals’ suggests Gazids! by Ash
Arsenal spokesman and chief executive Ivan Gazids is often facing the rebellions of Arsenal fans when it comes to his position at the club and the action, or perhaps lack of action, and influence he seems to have in this club, but for once he has actually got the Arsenal faithful on his side by taunting local rivals Tottenham Hotspur. .......Read the full article here
Its North London derby day again and we have the biggest game of the season so far this afternoon at The Emirates. The winner (Arsenal of course!) gets the prize of stopping The Spuds being on the top of the league, and whoever correctly predicts the Score wins a JustArsenal.com T-Shirt!
So I have finally got in a delivery of new JustArsenal T-Shirts featuring our new logo, and they will presently go on general sale once I get around to designing a fancy ad to entice you to buy one! .......Read the full article here
I firmly believe this is Arsenal’s make or break year. We are approaching 9 years without a trophy and although other clubs have had much bigger trophy droughts, none have been proclaimed like our one has and this needs to end. This is the season where we can go out and win a trophy and push high up to the very top spots of the Premier League, or this is the season, where we experience the last of Champion’s League football and fall down into the realms of Liverpool Football Club. .......Read the full article here
Will good fixture run come too late for title challenge? by DG
Looking at next season’s fixtures, it’s hard not to notice our rather appealing run of games at the tail end of the season. Our last 5 games of the season include home games against West Ham, Newcastle and West Brom, and two away games at Hull and Norwich. It’s a set of games we would expect to collect maximum points from, but unfortunately it could very well come too late to be meaningful in the final standings. The problem is the set of 4 games that immediately precede them – Spurs away, Chelsea away, Man City at home and Everton away. .......Read the full article here
It seems that whichever way you look at it, Arsenal are better than Tottenham. This will not come as a major surprise to the red and white part of North London or the Gooners all over the world, but it seems like the boys from the lane keep forgetting. It’s strange that we haven’t heard much bravado or claims of dominance since the Premier League finished. Hello, Emmanuel, Andres, William, anybody there? .......Read the full article here
Arsenal have been in a three way tussle with Chelsea and Tottenham for what seems like ages now. There has never been such a close run race for the final two Champions League places and it is all going down to the wire. Chelsea are definitely in the top four, although the Gunners could go above them into third. So really, it is down to us and Spurs again.
Arsene Wenger, however, is not interested in how the spuds get on against Sunderland, because he knows that Arsenal have worked very hard to make sure that our destiny is in our own hands and that the players must focus solely on beating Newcastle United on Sunday. .......Read the full article here
For once a game has produced the result that gives Arsenal the advantage in the race for the Top Four, and may even give us the chance of nicking Third Place back from Chelsea as well.
Chelsea totally dominated Bale FC in the first half and Oscar’s opening goal seemed inevitable, but the Blues missed an amazing amount of chances to put the game beyond Spurs reach. When Adebayor pulled an equalizer out of nowhere it looked like it could be Tottenham’s lucky night. .......Read the full article here
Lukasz Fabianski has been an Arsenal player long enough to know all about the bitter rivalry between the Gunners and Tottenham Hotspur. The fact that the spuds have been pushing for a top four finish and Champions League football recently, while Arsene Wenger has been struggling to keep Arsenal there with very little money, has made this all the more tasty recently.
Arsenal travel to relegated QPR tomorrow knowing that another three points will be a massive step towards being part of the European elite again. QPR have been awful this season and a lot of the players seem to be there just for the money. Fabianski is concerned, however, that the Tottenham connection will try to ensure that they do everything they can to help the mod down the road. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal soon to be a non-top 4 team? Don’t count on it by Matt
Today Arsenal faces their biggest challenge for the remainder of the season in a game that could decide their Champions League fate. For years now pundits have predicted that Arsenal were soon to be a non-top 4 team. That their decline was inevitable and that they would have to make way for one of the up and comers like Manchester City.
I remember predictions from as long ago as 2008 that Arsenal’s best days were behind them and that they would be the first of the Grand Slam “top 4 teams” to drop out and start regularly landing outside the top 4. .......Read the full article here
We are in the last stage of the EPL campaign , ManUre has just won the league and next week we will have to give them a guard of honour – but the main thing which we should worry about (apart from winning) is Goal Difference, because it could end up in a situation where All THREE London team ends up with 70 Points and realistically its a possibility.
Let me explain how by looking at me expected results from the final games:
