Lets have it right first off, I am a fan of ARSENAL Football Club. I supported this club before the arrival of Mesut Ozil and will support this club well after Ozil has left, so that should keep quiet those guys who bang on about Ozil worshipers etc. .......Read the full article here
Everyone is entitle to their opinion, of course and on close calls you normally have at least two of the three pundits disagreeing. Except when it comes to Arsenal it seems. We all know about how biased Michael Owen is, especially towards Liverpool and against Arsenal, but it seems the contagion is spreading to Sky Sports.
Arsene Wenger has been portrayed as a whinger because he suggested that Robben made a lot of the contact (which he did) and for suggesting that the Szczesny red card was harsh. If you had gone by the three Sky pundits, Jamie Redknapp, Michael Ballack and Jamie Carragher you would think the Arsenal boss had lost his marbles, because all three said it was a nailed on penalty. .......Read the full article here
The Gunners were understandably overrun in the possession stats, reduced to 10 men in contentious circumstances after 37 minutes, and unfortunately failing to score after an exciting start to the game.
Arsene Wenger made a shock decision to include youngster Yaya Sanogo, a former Ligue 2 free transfer who made a case for his inclusion with a promising display against Liverpool. The home side started strongly, piling on the pressure and were awarded a penalty after some fantastic work from Wilshere and Ozil. .......Read the full article here
What an unbelievable start by Arsenal. Arsene Wenger had surprised many by giving Yaya Sanogo just his second start. Along with a rampant Jack Wilshere and Oxlade-Chamberlain, the youngster inspired the Gunners and we really got Bayern on the back foot. When Ozil was fouled in the box in the 8th minute, the Emirates was rocking.
But then it all started to unravel. With Arteta and Ozil off the pitch, Ozil stepped up and made a right pig’s ear of his penalty, allowing Neuer a simple save. As much as that rocked Arsenal and the fans, it encouraged Bayern who started to look like what we expect. .......Read the full article here
After the Arsenal game against Liverpool and Fabianski’s MOTM performance, many people remarked how very unlucky Fabianski was to be second choice. In most clubs Fabianski is good enough to be first choice, but the player unfortunately finds his chances limited by his fellow countryman who has been one of the best keepers in the league this season. On Wednesday, most people will begin their preferred line-ups starting with “Szcz..”, and probably the manager too, but there are a number of very good reasons why Wenger should persist with Fabianski for
the second game running. .......Read the full article here
It is time for the players to take responsibility by M.E.S.
Since Jose Mourinho has come out and criticized the Arsenal manager, I have certainly been annoyed. Years ago I liked him, while in Spain he became a bit boring and now, after his attack on Wenger, I thoroughly dislike him. Being an Arsenal supporter you feel that you belong to a large family where you have the benefit of criticising your brother for his own good but strangers don’t have that privilege. .......Read the full article here
If the Arsenal manager and players have been watching Bayern Munich games recently hoping to spot some kind of weakness in the German juggernaut, I hope they have had more luck than me. The holders of the Champions League have been in relentless form, but their captain has revealed that they see Arsenal as a serious danger in their quest to retain the European cup.
Philip Lahm, in an interesting interview with the Guardian, was not exactly quaking in his boots, as he and his teammates are understandably full of confidence, but he admits to having watched Arsenal a lot this season and to being very impressed. Also, the memory of last season’s game between the clubs in Munich is a painful memory. .......Read the full article here
Hi Gooners. Arsenal never really looked threatening last night at all. Again, it took us most of the first half to get stuck in. As the commentator described, it was an edgy performance to say the least. Too many broken passes and mistakes. No penetration whatsoever. We lacked pace and a nose for goal. United were also abysmal, in fact worse than us and this is something we should have capitalized on, playing on at home and all. Yet Arsenal seemed almost too scared to try anything risky. Below is my assessment of players and ratings. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal missed the chance to reclaim top spot last night after a draw at home to Manchester United. Both teams seeming a little hesitant at times, their fear of losing overpowering their desire to win.
The Gunners can be thankful that Van Persie didn’t have his clinical boots on, however Wojciech Szczesny rightfully earned the plaudits for some superb saves to deny the Dutchman.
Giroud was wasteful, while Cazorla attempted to get things going for the Gunners. Koscielny too also came close for the Gunners, but in the end they failed to find the cutting edge to finish off Moyes’ men. .......Read the full article here
First of all, I am as frustrated and disappointed as anyone that Arsenal didn’t beat Manchester United, possibly more so because I had money on them to win. Never mind the points and the title race, we were all desperate to take advantage of United’s woes and get a long awaited victory over them.
But I don’t agree with some of the fans who think that Wenger and the players should have gone all out for the win. Let’s be realistic, Gooners, after the disaster at the weekend, it was more important for Arsenal to not lose than it was for us to win. .......Read the full article here
Last year before Arsenal stunned everyone by winning the Bayern game, Wenger dropped Vermaelen and Szczesny which seemed to wake up the team and made them have a good run. This year there have been games which I just don’t understand what is happening. I feel the Southampton game should have been a sign that for some reason we have become very apathetic in these big games and teams that press us high and hard will step all over us. .......Read the full article here
