Arsenal taking BIG risk playing Alexis Sanchez today? 0

Posted on February 15, 2015 by admin

It was a big surprise to see the name of Alexis Sanchez on the Arsenal team sheet today for the visit of \MIddlesborough in the fifth round of the FA cup. We had been told that the Chilean striker was not likely to play as his knee was still swollen after Tuesday night.

We know that Sanchez always wants to play and that this is an important game for the Gunners, but Wenger has made lots of changes, giving the likes of Chambers, Flamini, Gabriel and Gibbs rare starts. And with Theo Walcott finding his form and fitness, it is not as if the manager did not have a good option to play instead of Sanchez.

Arsene Wenger has already revealed that Mesut Ozil has regained full fitness and is available for today’s Arsenal game at home to Stoke City, but now he has gone even further in saying that he believes that the German has now regained his hunger to get out on the pitch and start winning again.

“It’s a frustrating season for him as he has not contributed yet,” Wenger said. “It was not a convincing start. He played six games, scored one goal against Aston Villa.

Arsenal star to shine on injury anniversary? 0

Posted on January 04, 2015 by admin

The Arsenal and England international Theo Walcott could be set to really get his football career back on track today, almost exactly a year after he was stretchered off in the Gunners’ FA cup triumph over our north London rivals Tottenham.

The lasting image of that moment was a grinning Walcott taunting the spuds from his stretcher but as we know, that happiness soon turned to misery as the extent of his injury became clear. If the 25-year old does start for Arsene Wenger today, it will be the first time since that day, but Theo has not wasted his recovery time, as a Sky Sports report explains.

Arsene Wenger recalled Francis Coquelin from his loan move at Charlton to help with Arsenal’s unrelenting injury roblems, and he was thrown in at the deep end against West Ham at Upton Park this week.

Although the young Frenchman performed admirably it seems that Wenger is not yet convinced that Francis is really good enough to become a regular Arsenal squad member. Wenger said on Arsenal.com: “I believe he has the potential but he has played one game, so it is a bit early to judge that. He will make a career and hopefully he will make it here.

Arsenal injury curse strikes AGAIN 0

Posted on December 30, 2014 by admin

Ever since the start of the Premier League season, Arsenal have had to somehow cope without almost a whole team worth of first team players. And it always seemed to be a rash of players in the same areas of the squad being out of action at the same time.

First it was the defence, with Debuchy, Koscielny and Gibbs all missing games and then it was midfield, with Ozil, Wilshere and Ramsey. But even with Walcott still injured and our big French striker Olivier Giroud missing a couple of months after surgery on his Tibia, the Gunners never seemed short up front as there were good options for Wenger.

Balotelli OUT of Arsenal clash and Liverpool have injury problems too! 0

Posted on December 19, 2014 by admin

Arsene Wenger will surely feel confident that Arsenal can come away from Anfield with all three points on Sunday. The manager was probably already rubbing his hands together at the prospect of adding to Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers misery this season, but will be relishing the trip to Anfield even more now.

Sky Sports have reported the good news, for Arsenal, that Rodgers will have to do without his summer signing Mario Balotelli for the clash with the Gunners. The Italy international has received a one match nan from the FA after his dozy post on social media managed to offend Jewish and black people alike.

BANG! Ramsey to set to miss ALL Arsenal festive fixtures? 2

Posted on December 19, 2014 by admin

Arsene Wenger was like a ninja or a commando in the way he conducted the Arsenal pre-match press conference this morning. The boss in and out before the gathered reporters had much of a chance to get settled but he did have time to drop a bomb on them and us Arsenal fans.

BOOM! The Frenchman casually dropped the bad news that our Wales international midfielder Aaron Ramsey is not likely to be back for the Premier League home game against QPR on Boxing Day as previously thought. A report by The Mirror reveals that Wenger is seriously concerned that Ramsey will not actually be able to help the Gunners in any of the festive fixtures.

Ozil determined to help Arsenal get what they deserve! 0

Mesut Ozil has obviously not enjoyed having to watch Arsenal from the sidelines for over two months, while the German international recovered from the knee injury picked up against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge at the start of October.

The play maker has been talking to Arsenal Player about his frustration and it is not just because he has been missing out on doing what he loves and does best, playing football.

Our record signing has revealed that it has also been hard work seeing the Gunners struggle to convert our good play into the points we deserve. That has been partly due to our failure to convert enough of the very good chances created but also the defensive weakness at the other end of the pitch.

Mesut Ozil optimistic on early return to Arsenal squad 0

Posted on December 18, 2014 by Patrick

The classy German playmaker has been out of action for ten weeks now, but he is raring to rejoin the Arsenal squad as soon as possible, and right now we could use another member of the team fit as soon as possible.

Ozil told Arsenal.com: “I’m working every day to get myself fit and I’m on the right path now. It won’t be too much longer before I’m back on the pitch. I hope to be back training with the whole team again as soon as possible,”

Arsenal handed TRIPLE injury boost for Liverpool clash 1

Posted on December 17, 2014 by admin

Arsenal have had an unbelievable bad run of injury problems this season and even now that they are supposedly on the wane, there is still a whole starting XI of first team Gunners out of action. The Arsenal.com website has 10 players on their list but Abou Diaby is not one of them and we have to assume that the French midfielder is not yet fit to play.
