Will Arsenal’s secret weapon seal victory over Leicester? 0

Posted on February 12, 2016 by admin

Arsenal face the current Premier League leaders Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday and even though there will still be 12 games left to play after the match, everyone accepts that we really need to win the game and close the gap to just two points or at the very least hold them to a draw.

And even though the Foxes have a very good recent defensive record, it is the fact that Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez have been on fire and they are the division’s joint top scorers that has been the driving force in their title challenge.

Arsenal summer transfer plans take hit from Italy 0

Whether the current Arsenal central defensive pairing of Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel is how Arsene Wenger sees as the new first choice or whether it is a temporary measure brought about by the bad mistake of Per Mertesacker in getting sent off against Chelsea and the speedy nature of our opponents attack, only time will tell.

But I can tell you that a lot of Arsenal fans would be happy to see our giant German defender replaced by Wenger signing a top quality centre back during the summer transfer window. According to The Sun, the boss may well have been thinking along the same lines, as they are reporting that the Gunners were preparing to make a move for the young Italian defender Daniel Rugani from Juventus after hearing that the player nearly handed in a transfer request in November.

Bullish Arsenal boss says Bring On Leicester 0

At one point of the Arsenal match away to Bournemouth yesterday the TV cameras cut away to Arsene Wenger on the Arsenal bench and despite being two goals to the good, the Frenchman looked incredibly nervous as he fiddled with an elastic band around his fingers.

That was because it was such a vital game and potentially a pivotal one in the race for the Premier League title. The manager and the players were caught a little bit between the two stools of keeping up our attack and possibly recording a morale boosting heavy win with lots of goals and just making sure that we took the points.

Ox is IN and Walcott’s OUT for Arsenal at Bournemouth 0

Posted on February 07, 2016 by admin

Theo Walcott has paid the price for his struggles in front of goal for Arsenal recently, as Arsene Wenger has dropped the England international to the subs bench for the trip to Bournemouth today, with the improving Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain coming in to play in the wide forward role on the right flank.

The Ox has not had a great season so far but he has looked a lot better in the last few weeks and now he has a great chance to force his way into the first team on a regular basis. Let’s just hope he grabs the chance with both hands because Arsenal are badly in need of some goals and a win today.

Arsenal striker promises to put things right in Bournemouth 0

With Arsenal having struggled to score goals in recent games it would normally be the France international striker Olivier Giroud that was the main target of the Arsenal fans’ frustration, but despite the fact he has not found the back of the net since bagging a brace against Liverpool a few weeks ago, Giroud has been playing okay and the chances we have squandered have largely fallen to his team mates.

However, he is the centre forward and so is feeling a lot of the responsibility to get the Gunners firing again as soon as possible and so the big man has promised the Arsenal fans that he will be fully focused on getting the side back to winning ways in Bournemouth today.

Arsenal fans should be BUZZING about beating Bournemouth 0

Posted on February 06, 2016 by admin

There are a lot of nerves being felt by anyone concerned with Arsenal right now and you can hardly blame the Gunners for feeling that it could be all about to go wrong again as Arsene Wenger seeks his first Premier League title in 12 years.

But from what the Frenchman has been saying this week you can tell that the prof does not share this feeling of doom with the doubters among the football media and the Arsenal faithful and when you step back and look at things objectively there are plenty of reasons for the boss to be feeling pretty confident.

Now’s the time to put your money on Arsenal 1

OKay Arsenal fans, I know that we are all feeling a little bit dejected after the Gunners went from two points clear at the top of the table into fourth position. Our north London rivals Tottenham have gone above us in the league table for the first time all season, even if it is only by goal difference, and the awful Manchester United side under Louis van Gaal are somehow breathing down our necks with just five points between us.

Arsenal’s BIG problem at CAM with Rosicky AND Ozil injuries 0

Posted on February 05, 2016 by admin

It feels at Arsenal that our injury problems are like buses in that they always seem to come at once and so we often see a certain position severely weakened as Arsene Wenger loses two or three players in the same area of the pitch at the same time.

It has been central midfield for most of the season but at least the return of Ramsey and then Coquelin and the transfer addition of Elneny has eased that particular problem. Now, though, it looks like the prof could be faced with a bit of a crisis in the Central Attacking Midfield role.

Yes Arsenal have gone behind Tottenham in the Premier League table for the first time this season and everyone is making a massive deal out of it. The TV pundits who were confidently predicting a month ago that the Gunners had sorted all our problems out are now saying that nothing has changed and they are also now saying that Spurs will carry on their form and finally finish above us.

Arsenal boss states the bleeding obvious!! 0

Posted on February 03, 2016 by admin

Despite the fact that Arsenal have not lifted the Premier League trophy in almost 12 years, Arsene Wenger still has the reputation of changing the face of English football. The Frenchman even gained the nickname of Le Prof for his educated and erudite approach to all aspects of the game.

So even though his tactics or his refusal to change the Arsenal style of play has attracted some criticism in recent years, Wenger is still a man to listen to when it comes to the beautiful game. So the football press and Arsenal fans in particular were keen to hear his thoughts on what has been going wrong for the Gunners and our title challenge recently.
