Cazorla the Arsenal star yet again 0

Posted on December 22, 2014 by James

In an awful performance against Liverpool yesterday, Arsenal were lucky to come away with a draw despite leading until the 95th minute! That may seem like a paradox but the fact is that Liverpool dominated the possession and the chaces on goal.

One positive to come out of the game was the excellent shift put in by our little Spaniard Santi Cazorla, who was singled out for special praise by Arsene Wenger after the game. Wenger said: “He played very well. He’s one of the players who turned up and he had a great performance.”

Same old story for awful Arsenal 0

All of the recent problems that have dogged Arsenal were on show again today during the Premier League away clash with Liverpool. We still cannot beat the big teams, even though some good luck and some lax finishing from the home team gave us a great chance.

To be fair to Arsene Wenger and the players, our squad was once again ravaged by injury problems and we had right back at the centre of defence and no options other than Flamini and Chamberlain in central midfield. But they both played poorly and the same can be said of almosy everyone in an Arsenal shirt. Maybe Giroud, Cazorla and Szczesny can hold their heads up.

Teams and preview – Arsenal can run riot against Liverpool back three! 0

Posted on December 21, 2014 by admin

JUst as Louis van Gaal did when taking on Arsenal a month or so ago, the Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has tried to fix his leaky defence and cope with a few injury problems by changing the formation of the team and going to three at the back.

But it has not exactly been a success so far, with three goals shipped against Man United this week and Bournemouth in midweek causing them all sorts of problems but finishing poorly. But despite that and the loss of Dejan Lovren to injury, Rodgers is sticking with the plan, bringing Sakho in to replace him.

OUCH! Rodgers rocked by REAL reason Alexis chose Arsenal 0

Posted on December 21, 2014 by admin

It was great for Arsenal fans at the time, hearing that Alexis Sanchez had snubbed a Liverpool transfer in favour of a move to the Emirates stadium, even though Liverpool’s star striker was heading in the opposite direction. And the Frenchman has this week admitted that he was worried about whether Brendan Rodgers would have the advantage in the Sanchez chase because of that.

After the taunting and disrespectful words flung in our direction when the manager thought their was a release clause in the Suarez contract and tried to activate it, it made it all the sweeter that Alexis became a Gunner, with Rodgers showing some sour grapes by claiming it was living in London that made the difference, not playing for Arsenal.

Man City win proves the need for Arsenal to BEAT Liverpool 1

Posted on December 20, 2014 by admin

Last season and even early on this season, the Arsenal fans would have been more than happy to come away from an away game with a big Premier League rival without a defeat to chew on. And after last season’s humiliating 5-1 drubbing at Anfield, we would have been even happier not to lose to Liverpool.

But a draw is simply not good enough for the Gunners tomorrow and the fact that Man City have just beaten Crystal Palace to increase the gap between them and Arsenal to 13 points just highlights that fact. I expect Louis van Gaal and his Manchester United team to go home with all three points from his trip to a depleted Aston Villa as well, although Benteke and Agbonlahor will hopefully do us a big favour and get past De Gea in the United goal.

Arsenal boss taunts Liverpool with Suarez – Sanchez comparison 1

Posted on December 20, 2014 by admin

Arsene Wenger may as well have just said, `look at what you could have won` as he compared the Arsenal and Chile international star Alexis Sanchez to the former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez ahead of the clash of the two clubs in the Premier League at Anfield tomorrow.

Suarez did not score against the Gunners on that fateful day last season when we come home to London with our tails between our legs after a painful 5-1 thrashing, but he was a vital part of their team and it has only become more and more obvious this season, as the scousers lurch from one bad day to another disaster, that Brendan Rodgers has failed miserably in his attempt to replace the Barcelona bound Uruguayan striker.

Wenger – Arsenal deserved Liverpool defeat last season but…. 1

Posted on December 20, 2014 by James

Arsenal were massacred 5-1 in this fixture at Liverpool last season, and were hit with the sucker punch of conceding four goals in the first 20 minutes, but Arsene Wenger believes that it was just down to both team’s performances on the day and is unlikely to be replicated this time around.

Liverpool, with Luis Suarez, came out of the blocks like greyhounds and bamboozled the Gunners with their attacking prowess, and Wenger is happy to admit that.

Why Arsenal will beat Spurs to Morgan Shneiderlin 1

Posted on December 20, 2014 by Patrick

Morgan Schneiderlin has made no sectret of the fact that he wanted to leave Southampton in the summer, and he has certainly not changed his mind. Arsenal and Tottenham were both expected to be the main suitors for the French international.

Tottenham were reported to have made a derisory £10 million offer for the best-performing defensive midfielder in the League in the summer, but with the Saints already angry that the Spuds had nicked their manager Mauricio Pochettino, the South Coast club dug their heels in and forced Schneiderlin to honour his contract….for now.

Wenger admits worries that Arsenal hitman could have joined Liverpool 1

Posted on December 20, 2014 by Patrick

Arsene Wenger pulled off one of the biggest transfer coups of the summer when he very quickly persuaded Alexis Sanchez to join Arsenal, but he has now openly admitted that the negotiations were far from simple and he was worried that Sanchez would have been the obvious replacement for Liverpool when Luis Suarez joined Barcelona.

“Sanchez, he looks like he is made for the English game,” Wenger said on ESPN. “Sanchez has settled very quickly. But Sanchez has a kind of game that is instinctive and tough.

“They (Sanchez and Suarez) have similarities. They are South Americans, they are provoking players, they go with the ball.

Shaqiri to snub Liverpool for SHOCK Arsenal transfer? 1

Posted on December 19, 2014 by admin

Maybe now that Arsenal have not been drawn to face the German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in the knockout stage of the Champions League, for a change, then their manager Pep Guardiola will not mind selling us one of his players.

And by all accounts, the Switzerland international midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri is not really a part of the Spanish manager’s plans for the club’s future anyway. But I did not realise that he was even a possible transfer target for the Gunners either, until I saw the Metro report that claims not only is Arsene Wenger keen on signing Shaqiri, but that the Frenchman is closing to completing the deal to bring him to the Emirates stadium in January.
