Arsenal starting XI to face Burnley with Gibbs and Ramsey 0

Posted on November 01, 2014 by admin

Aaron Ramsey has not started a game for Arsenal since he returned to fitness after his latest injury problem. It looked like Arsene Wenger was trying to be every cautious in re-introducing the star player of last season back into the Gunners’ line up, but events this week have forced his hand.

With the manager having toild Arsenal.com that our England international midfielder Jack Wilshere is very unlikely to be able to start after he picked up a minor problem in training this week, the young Welshman is the natural choice to start instead.

Arsenal get huge boost to the forward line 0

Danny Welbeck has dome pretty well since he signed for Arsenal back on transfer deadline day, especially when you consider that he had been given very little opportunity to play in his new centre forward role during his time as a Manchester United player.

So even though he has missed a few chances and has not always had the heavy influence on a game that we might hope, the Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger have got plenty of patience with him, especially as we have the Chile international Alexis Sanchez chipping in with goals and playing very well.

La Liga star striker declares himself ready to play for Arsenal 0

Just like one of the current options available to Arsenal in the forward department, Joel Campbell, the Brazilian starlet Wellington Silva has had to play at various other clubs on loan since he signed a contract with Arsenal back in 2011.

But after his spells in Spain with Levante, Alcoyano, Ponferradina, Murcia and now Almeria, the 21-year old has declared to the media in Spain that he is now finally available to play for the Gunners. This is because he has applied for and received a Spanish passport, as reported by Squawka.com.

Transfer request means Arsenal WILL sign Pedro in January 0

Posted on October 27, 2014 by admin

It does not happen very often in football these days because handing in a transfer request is kind of a last resort, but Arsenal will be pleased that the Barcelona and Spain international forward Pedro Rodriguez has apparently done just that, according to a Daily Express report.

The paper claims that the news comes from Spain after the 27-year old finally accepted that with Lionel Messi, Neymar and now Luis Suarez means that his playing opportunities are likely to be even fewer this season. And the Catalan club also has two new strikers in Sandro and Munir El Haddadi coming through from their La Masia academy, just as Pedro himself did.

Arsenal given Green Light for January transfer bid 0

Posted on October 26, 2014 by admin

Maybe I should have said that Arsenal get the green and white light from this defensive target, because the player in question is Virgil van Dijk and his current club is the Scottish champions Celtic. But he might not be there for much longer after his recent words suggested that the 23-year old was keen on coming to play for Arsenal as soon as possible.

The Holland international centre back has only been playing for the Glasgow club since last summer but his outstanding performances have already drawn admiring interest from some bigger clubs around Europe, with Arsene Wenger also keeping track of him according to recent Arsenal transfer rumours.

Arsenal star ready to make SHOCK switch to EPL rival? 1

Posted on October 26, 2014 by admin

The Arsenal transfer rumours about the Gunners’ star midfielder are back, with the latest claiming once again that Mesut Ozil is ready to call time on his Arsenal career already. And in a move that is sure to anger Arsenal fans everywhere, the Germany international wants to join our English Premier League rivals Man City, according to Metro.

But although the report claims that Ozil ts ready to make the switch north to the Etihad stadium, it does not say that Arsene Wenger is ready to sell. And the way that his Arsenal team have been struggling lately, I think that the last thing the French manager would want is to lose his record signing and one of the most creative talents at the club.

FINALLY the luck has turned for Arsenal 0

Posted on October 25, 2014 by admin

A bit of luck can go a long way in football and it seems like it has all been going against Arsenal since the start of the current season. We cannot blame all out troubles on luck, but it certainly has not been on our side either, until this week that is.

Apart from the knock picked up our England international left back this week, Arsenal have come through two games unscathed and we even have quite a few important players coming back into fitness. We will have to wait and see of course, but Gibbs’ knock looked like an impact injury and hopefully will not mean him missing any games.

Has Wenger dropped the ball TWICE with Arsenal team pick? 1

Posted on October 25, 2014 by admin

The Arsenal team that Arsene Wenger has picked to start today’s game against the out of form, low on confidence and eminently beatable Sunderland has two glaring omissions in my opinion. And the 65-year old could face a lot of questions from the Arsenal fans and football media if the Gunners do not play well and win the game.

One player that I think should be starting is the best finisher at the club Lukas Podolski. The German has been crying out to play more and has just won us an unlikely three Champions League points, so I do no really understand why Wenger has put him on the bench again.

Arsenal starting XI to face Sunderland 1

Posted on October 25, 2014 by admin

Arsenal need to build on the fortunate Champions League win over Anderlecht in midweek. And we need to take advantage of the heavy beating that today’s opponents Sunderland got on their trip to Southampton last weekend. So with the Gunners not doing very well at the back anyway so far this season, Arsene Wenger must surely go on the attack.

So that means, in my opinion, that his team selection for this vital game needs to be fairly adventurous and attack minded. Mikel Arteta should start instead of Mathieu Flamini. Lukas Podolski should start ahead of Alex Oxclade-Chamberlain and our best fit attacking midfielder Santi Cazorla must play in the central, number 10 position.

Arsenal boss gets award for stating the bleeding obvious!! 2

Posted on October 25, 2014 by admin

A lot of the Arsenal fans out there, despite being armchair managers, accept that Arsene Wenger may have the edge on us when it comes to matters relating to the game we all love, football. But the Frenchman has not exactly enhanced his reputation with the latest piece of insight, reported by Arsenal.com.

I am not saying that the boss is wrong, far from it, just that him saying that the Gunners need to play a bit better than we have been doing so far this season is not really news to many people. How to achieve this and why we have been so poor up to now would be useful information.
