Wenger not giving up on the title just yet! by Ash
When it comes to aspirations in life, some people just never give up, and Arsene Wenger seems to be one of them. Strong in his mind, he still wants to be successful with Arsenal, and for Arsenal football club to achieve.
Some would claim otherwise and state that if Arsene Wenger still had a winning mentality then he would have put the club in a better position by spending money. However what Wenger has actually done is successfully managed a tough financial situation whilst also offering some form of challenge for silverware. In hindsight, although these 9 years have not delivered what everyone remembers a team for, he has produced a financial super ground that any club would be proud of. .......Read the full article here
We have to stay positive! by D.A.
It’s safe to say that it’s not easy being an Arsenal fan. As well as experiencing the many highs of this season, we’ve also endured the lows. We now find ourselves precariously close to 5th spot, when only a couple of months ago, we were flying high at the top of the Premier League. .......Read the full article here
Wenger has let the players and the fans down – simple! by P.H.
Back in December we Arsenal fans were equally divided between those who thought we were going to keep the brilliant form going and win the league by a mile, and those gloomier types who could see everything turning to dust over the next few months. On this site, anyone who tried to bring in a little realism was told not to be so negative, as if what we say and discuss here has any bearing on what happens on match days. Now, sadly, the wheels are falling off of this particular wagon, or should I say gun-carriage. .......Read the full article here
More to expect from Aaron Ramsey by Ash
With the form Arsenal and Wales international midfielder, Aaron Ramsey, has shown this season, it’s difficult to understand what more we could imagine of the player once he makes his long anticipated return to the pitch.
Ramsey has shown everything from speed and skill to volleys and poachers goals, but despite all this Ramsey has told Arsenal.com that the fans of Arsenal should expect to see plenty more when he returns later this month. .......Read the full article here
You cannot blame Tomas Rosicky for being upbeat after smashing a glorious winning goal for Arsenal. The early strike seasled a third win over the north London rivals and propelled the Gunners back above Man City into third and back into a realistic title race.
There is a long way to go, of course, with nine Premier League games left, but the 33-year old match winner was full of confidence that Arsenal would keep up with our rivals and take the challenge to become champions of England all the way to the finishing line, as reported by the Daily Mail. .......Read the full article here
Spring is in the air, and with the promise of sunshine coming the Sunday papers are warming up towards the transfer window (commonly known as the Silly Season on Arsenal websites!).
Today’s offering comes from the ever-fanciful Sunday Sun, who are proposing the very unlikely story that Manchester United believe that they can get our very own captain Thomas Vermaelen to go to Old Trafford this summer.
I know Arsene Wenger has a habit of selling our captains, and even I could understand why Vermaelen may wish to leave after being sidelined for most of this season, but surely we won’t let him go to Man United? .......Read the full article here
The young English midfielder Jack Wilshere believes that yesterday’s defeat at Stoke could have been avoided if only the Arsenal strikers hadn’t missed their chances to take the lead in the first half.
“We have to be prepared for it,” Wilshere said on Sky Sports. “We know what to expect when we come here, it’s going to be a tough game, we have to fight and win second balls and then we have to take the opportunities when they come.
“We didn’t do that today. We had a few chances in the first half and we didn’t take them, and you’re going to get punished here. .......Read the full article here
When Mikel Arteta decided to join Arsenal from Everton in August 2011, it was probably with the hope that he would add to the medals he won in Scotland as part of the Rangers team. Unfortunatley for the Spaniard, that has not happened yet, although he is closer this season than ever.
But there were other reasons as well, which have worked out for him. Champions League football, for instance, has been a regular for Arsenal’s vice-captain. Those big nights are what footballers dream of, but those dreams can soon turn to nightmare’s if you get heavily beaten every time. .......Read the full article here
It is quite often the case that Arsenal fans are fuming, disappointed and looking for answers after a poor performance or result. Often, however, the explanation given by the manager leaves the fans even more cheesed off. As yesterday’s disaster progressed, many fans were wondering what sort of excuse Arsene Wenger would come out with this time, but the Frenchman was uncharacteristically frank after the game. .......Read the full article here
Repercussions of Our Transfer Failures by Uche
Liverpool 4 – 0 Arsenal. That is the score line as I write this blog and Liverpool are absolutely destroying us at their home. I don’t even know where to begin. I don’t want to watch this game anymore but since I am bent on blogging about it, I must endure this torture to the end. After all, we are all quick to say we are gunners till death. So I will struggle to see this game through, even if I end up being hospitalized afterwards. .......Read the full article here
There is a lot of nervousness among Arsenal fans at the minute. Hardly surprising really, with pundits like Michael Owen and Jamie Redknapp constantly predicting doom, disaster and a sudden slide down the Premier League. Tough fixtures are coming, they say, and how will Arsenal’s weakling squad devoid of talent possibly cope with this? Hopefully the same way we have coped with it already this season, by winning games and staying on top of the Premier League and staying in the cup competitions. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal are in one of those situations again today when they can ratchet up the pressure on the main rivals to the Premier League crown. The Gunners face an away game against Southampton this evening, knowing that a win will open up a four point gap over Manchester City and five over Chelsea, with those two not playing until tomorrow.
Man City, especially, could be feeling serious pressure when they travel to White Hart Lane to face a resurgent Tottenham. The media seem to think that it is Arsenal who will wilt under the pressure as the season wears on, but our French international right back thinks it is exactly the opposite. The fact that the Gunners are being written off, according to Bacary Sagna, is actually keeping the pressure off Arsenal and putting it on our rivals. .......Read the full article here
