65 Today? Time for Wenger to retire from Arsenal! 2

Posted on October 22, 2014 by Patrick

Happy birthday Arsene – NOT! Surely when you get to 65 years of age you don’t need all this stress and strain, you could be heading for a heart attack if you carry on like this. Arsenal were incredibly lucky to win tonight against a useless Anderlecht side that has only won once in their last 20 Champions League games.

Never mind Arsene. What about us poor Arsenal fans who have been left with our hearts in our mouths at the end of nearly every single game, starting with the last minute equaliser at the Emirates against Crystal Palace on the opening day of the season.

Arsenal rocked by transfer snub from stunning Spanish striker 0

You would have to say that is the defensive areas of the Arsenal squad that are most in need of a boost at the moment, with the Gunners leaking goals on a regular basis and having to play inexperienced young players like Hector Bellerin and use others out of position.

Don’t worry Arsenal – Anderlecht have even BIGGER problems 0

Posted on October 22, 2014 by admin

It is understandable that many Arsenal fans are so concerned about the poor run of results so far this season, with just two wins from eight Premier League games and an early exit from the Capital One Cup, that there is very little confidence that the Gunners can come back to north London with three Champions League points tonight.

And this belief has not been helped by the injury to the Colombian reserve keeper David Ospina, meaning that rookie Martinez is set to make his Champions League debut because of Wojciech Szczesny being suspended. But even though Laurent Koscielny has joined Olivier Giroud, Mesut Ozil, Mathieu Debuchy and others on the sidelines, Arsenal’s problems pale in comparison with those facing our opponents Anderlecht, as revealed in a Daily Star report.

Spud hating Podolski piles pressure on Arsenal boss! 0

Posted on October 22, 2014 by admin

Lukas Podolski may have endeared himself even more to the Arsenal fans this week, with his classic tweet. He was reacting to the Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds about him and a possible switch to our north London rivals Tottenham,as reported by the BBC.

The German Gunner wrote, “Hell will freeze over before this transfer happens.”

Not keen then Lukas? But as much as the Arsenal fans would have loved that bit of spud bashing, it is the manager that he needs to win over and Arsene Wenger has not responded well to his recent calls to be be played more. He even left the striker out of the match day squad completely in the last game.

Poor form means Arsenal ARE prepared to dump Wenger 3

If Arsene Wenger can not get Arsenal firing on all cylinders soon, the Frenchman might find his long reign as manager of the Gunners finally coming to an end, according to a Metro report.

Expectations were high at the club after Wenger was given some serious money to spend to build on last season’s FA cup success and having led the Premier League for longer than any other team. But Arsenal have failed to live up to those expectations so far and even though the long list of injuries has not helped, it is the manager that takes the blame in the end.

Ozil ready to join Arsenal panto villain Nasri at Man City? 2

Posted on October 21, 2014 by admin

I am not the biggest fan of the Arsenal and Gerrmany midfielder Mesut Ozil. But that does not mean that I am happy about the news that the World Cup winner could be heading to Man City.

According to a Metro report the Man City boss Manuel Pellegrini has asked his club chiefs to prepare an offer for Ozil in January.

And if recent Arsenal transfer rumours are true. Ozil is ready to go because of Arsene Wenger’s stubborn idea that the German should play on the wing rather than the number 10 role that made him a global superstar.

Will Arsenal regret being knocked out of the Capital One Cup? 0

Posted on October 21, 2014 by Patrick

Arsenal, in the recent past, have always gone into a season competing on four fronts — Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and the Capital One Cup — thereby giving themselves a chance of pocketing one of the four possible trophies when the curtains are pulled on the season. However, having been knocked out in the 3rd round of the Capital One Cup by a spirited Southampton side, the Gunners now see themselves involved in the Champions League, in addition to the regular Premier League commitments — at least until January — when the draw for the FA Cup would be made. And, having started off on a poor note in the Premier League, will Arsenal rue being knocked out of the Capital One Cup, which is always another trophy, nonetheless, to fight for?

BFG says Arsenal STILL have title chance! Really? 0

Per Mertesacker is not the type of player to duck a battle or to shirk responsibility, so the Arsenal vice-captain will probably be kicking himself today. The whole team came out after the break not fully switched on but it was the German defender that should have prevented Hull scoring that second goal which nearly led to a rare home defeat for Arsenal.

But Mertesacker has alsdo taken positives from the way the Gunners started the game and the way we have been dominant in almost every game this season without getting the results he thinks we deserved. And this is why our centre back is not giving up on the English Premier League title just yet, as a Sky Sports report reveals.

Madrid slam door on Khedira’s January transfer to Arsenal 0

Posted on October 20, 2014 by admin

If Arsene Wenger is determined to finally sign a top class defensive midfielder to strengthen his Arsenal squad in January, then it looks like the Frenchman will have to keep looking. Assuming that the recent Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that Sami Khedira would be the player coming to join the Gunners that is.

It was rumoured that Wenger had already reached an agreement with the Germany international over the personal terms of his transfer and that Mesut Ozil and Per Mertesacker had convinced the central midfielder to snub any attempts by Jose Mourinho and Chelsea to hijack the deal.

Why Arsenal WILL bounce back against Anderlecht 0

Posted on October 19, 2014 by admin

I think that one of the reasons for Arsenal’s lacklustre and strangely disjointed performance against Hull City at the Emirates yesterday was because we were not concentrating properly on the game. Arsene Wenger mentioned the lack of focus and I think he was right and that he was just as much to blame as the players.

We expected to win and already had one eye on the Champions League game against Anderlecht on Wednesday. And that came back to bite Arsenal on the bum, but the manager and players need to regroup now and make sure that at least we don’t make the mistake worse by failing to beat the Belgian champions, which I don’t think we will.
