What does sacking of Moyes mean for Arsenal? by Dboy
Arsenal fans have all now surely learned that David Moyes has been sacked by Man United after their latest loss to former club Everton. It just goes to show how ambitious the Man United board is, and that they do not tolerate any mediocrity. But what does this have to do with Arsenal? I’m afraid that whatever decision the Man United board takes in appointing a new manager for next season, it might influence the outcome of the top four position in the Premier League. .......Read the full article here
I can understand and sympathise with a lot of Arsenal fans, who have become so frustrated with the constant injury problems that have hampered the playing career of Gunners midfielder Abou Diaby. Only 20 games and no goals since the summer 0f 2011, means that many fans will have forgotten what Diaby is like. Well, when he is fit, the Frenchman is pretty damn good.
Those who think that Arsene Wenger should just forget about Diaby and sign another player of that ilk in the summer are, in my opinion, going to be disappointed. You only have to listen to what the manager said about Diaby in a report on Arsenal.com yesterday to realise just how highly Wenger rates his countryman. .......Read the full article here
It can’t be much fun for Cesc Fabregas. The former Arsenal man finally agreed to a dream return to his boyhood club Barcelona a few years ago, something the Arsenal fans grudgingly understood despite the hole it left in the Gunners team, but it has been anything but a dream since then.
The nightmare continues for the Spanish midfielder, as the frustration of the Barca fans has started to boil over into anger which they are constantly venting at him in the form of whistles, boos and abuse from the stands. It has become very noticeable, according to a report in the Daily Mail, to the extent where officials from the Catalan club have spoken to Fabregas about it and how it is affecting him mentally. .......Read the full article here
Imagine if we kept Ramsey and Ozil fit all season … by K.M.
The weekend finally saw Arsenal produce a good game and a routine win. It was easy to see the difference of having Ramsey and Ozil back in the squad. It seemed like we had two times more talent and we looked like creating chances from nowhere. Enough was spoken about the goals and the game, so I will shift the theme of this post as to why those players were run down to the ground by the manager until they got injured? .......Read the full article here
If things keep going the way they are, Arsenal fans will start to call Real Madrid our feeder club. It seems that almost every other player that the Gunners are linked with is currently playing at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Spain.
Having failed, for whatever reason, to land Gonzalo Higuain as well as Mesut Ozil last summer, media reports are suggesting that Karim Benzema, the French international that was preferred to Higuain, could be for sale at the end of the season. The Mirror is reporting that the giants of La Liga are planning to offload Benzema to make way for Sergio Aguero from Man City. Other reports suggest that it is Liverpool’s Luis Suarez that they are after. .......Read the full article here
After losing badly away at Chelsea and Everton (Zero goals scored – nine conceded, not to mention the shaky Wembley game against Championship side Wigan), Arsene Wenger was worried that his Arsenal team had lost their confidence of winning away from the Emirates.
But the introduction of Ozil and Ramsey and the freshness of rarely-used Podolski seems to have given the Gunners a new-found vigour again.
Wenger said on Arsenal.com: “The first half was very physical, we had to deal with a lot of crosses,”
“Our defenders had a great game, they kept us in the game and we were clinical every time we went into their half. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal fans are getting extremely used to having most of their top players injured for a large part of the season, and young Jack Wilshere seems to miss out more than most, but it now seems that Arsene Wenger is confident that the England international will be fit and ready to go to Brazil for the World Cup.
Although Wilshere’s last injury occurred while playing for his country, Wenger seems keen to see him return to international duty as soon as possible. The Frenchman said: “He is starting to jog this week. I would think two to three weeks,” Wenger was quoted as saying by British media on Sunday. .......Read the full article here
The smiles said it all! Arsenal were feeling good about life again. There were all sorts of reasons for that, but it was not looking likely a few weeks ago. Having Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil back on the pitch was clearly a big boost for the Gunners, but it should not detract from the recent upsurge in the form of our smiling assassin Lukas Podolski.
One of our guest articles recently focused on the enigma that is the Prince, and he got it spot on. We the fans have been left baffled by Arsene Wenger and his reluctance to use the German, but then equally surprised when Podolski has been given a chance and fluffed it. .......Read the full article here
Like every Arsenal fan, I was gutted when Aaron Ramsey got injured on Boxing day. And that was compounded when his return was put back and the Gunners had to do without the Welshman for over three months. So the news of his return was sweet music to our ears, but by then Arsenal had lost any chance of winning the Premier League. .......Read the full article here
This is a subject close to the hearts of Arsenal fans and one that never seems to quite go away. I am talking about the possible return of the Gunners’ former captain and one of the most loved players of recent years, Cesc Fabregas. The Spanish international midfielder was a big loss when he rejoined his boyhood club and many fans feel that we have never really replaced him, so if the rumours are true and he is available this summer, surely Arsenal should make sure he comes back to his second home. .......Read the full article here
We heard this week that the Arsenal manager had met with the French football agent Stephane Courbis, and I hope that Mr. Wenger was at his charming best and had a very nice bottle of Bordeaux waiting at the perfect temperature for the meeting, because Courbis is the agent of Laurent Koscielny and Serge Aurier.
Amid rumours of interest in our French centre back from the likes of Bayern Munich, PSG and even Manchester United, Arsenal are keen to get Koscielny to put his signature on a new deal that will put him at the same salary level as the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere, something around £90,000 a week. .......Read the full article here
We still don’t really know all the details of the injury that has kept Mesut Ozil out of the Arsenal squad for the last six weeks, other than it being something to do with his hamstring, or leg, or some part of his body. But it cannot have been too debilitating because the German is only just back in training but is already fit enough to be included in the Arsenal squad for the trip to Hull tomorrow, according to the Daily Mail. .......Read the full article here
