Gunners legend says Arsenal should forget EPL title and focus on a cup!

The fans and former players of Arsenal will all have been pleased about the way the Gunners fought back from a seemingly impossible situation to clinch fourth place in the Premier League, qualifying for the Champions League and finishing above our north London rivals again.

As the dust settles, though, and we start to take stock, there are certainly concerns. The thing that really gets under the skin of the former Arsenal striker Ian Wright, is that the trophy drought has continued. Wright, as an Arsenal fan, understands the importance of beating Tottenham, but that gap in silverware is embarrassing, especially for a club of our size.

Bergkamp was snubbed as Arsenal coach says Wright

Former Arsenal player and goal scorer extraordinaire, Ian Wright, has claimed that another Gunners legend, Dennis Bergkamp, wanted to come to the Emirates as a coach but was turned down by Arsene Wenger. Wright also called for the resignation of some board members and a move to bring David Dein back to the club.

Wright was as shocked as the rest of us by the defeat, and the manner of it, by Bradford last night, and he believes that enough is enough and some drastic changes should be made. The former striker also seems to have joined the growing ranks of Gooners who have lost faith in Wenger and his ability to turn the poor current form around.

Former Arsenal star hails Giroud plus another striker rumour

Arsenal will struggle to score any goals after the departure of Robin van Persie to Manchester United and Alex Song to Barcelona, everybody said. The top goal scorer and top assist provider would leave Arsenal in mid table, some suggested. Giroud can’t score and will be another Chamakh, pundits predicted weeks ago.

How times change, with Arsenal creating and scoring more than ever. Ray Parlour has revealed his thoughts on the matter and his belief that Olivier Giroud will continue ti improve and turn out to be a real star for the Gunners.

Arsenal strike legend believes in Walcott’s ability!

Wright backs Walcott by TS

Ian Wright has come out stating that Walcott should be given his chance as a striker at Arsenal. The ex Arsenal legend has also pleaded with the club to resolve the winger’s contract dispute before the player is forced to move on.

Walcott scored twice against Coventry but Wenger still insists that the player will ‘have to be patient’ before given the chance to play upfront. This comes after Walcott expressed his desire to follow in Henry’s footsteps.

Giroud to score for Arsenal tomorrow

The French international striker Olivier Giroud has been honest about feeling the pressure in an Arsenal shirt this season. He is fully aware that he has made a big step up from Ligue 1 to the Premier league. He also knows that he has got some pretty big boots to fill, not just Robin van Persie but a whole host of fantastic Arsenal strikers. Giroud knows that all Arsenal fans and players are behind him all the way and are willing him to get off the mark.
