Arsenal starting XI for Chelsea with Ozil AND Cazorla! 0

Posted on April 26, 2015 by admin

Most Arsenal fans are expecting a tough game against Chelsea today but we are also feeling more confident that Arsene Wenger can finally end his run against Jose Mourinho and get his first victory over his rival. But if it is to be lucky 13 for the Frenchman, he will have to work out how to get through the big blue bus that Chelsea will bring to north London.

For me, the Gunners do have the tools and will need our creative players to outfox the power of Chelsea and that is why I think that Wenger will start with Mesut Ozil in a wide forward role rather than Danny Welbeck, with Santi Cazorla in the central attacking midfield role.

OUCH! Germany star SNUBS Arsenal for Man United transfer! 2

Posted on April 25, 2015 by admin

At least one of the Arsenal transfer targets rumoured to be on the list of Arsene Wenger for this summer appears top have delivered an early snub to the Frenchman, as the Daily Mail is reporting that the Borussia Dortmund and Germany international star Ilkay Gundogan has chosen a transfer to our Premier League rivals Manchester United instead.

Gundogan is a talented central midfielder and the versatility that allows him to play deep, advanced or on the flanks would have made him a typical Wenger signing for Arsenal, especially at the bargain price being quoted of around £20 million.

Can Alexis Sanchez beat Eden Hazard to the PFA award? 0

Posted on April 25, 2015 by Patrick

Eight consecutive victories have put Arsenal on course to not only secure a top four finish and Champions League football for the eighteenth consecutive season under Arsene Wenger, but also finish runners-up to Chelsea in the Premier League. An FA Cup Final at Wembley against Aston Villa may be the icing on the cake for the Gunners who have been in imperious form, playing the wonderful free-flowing football that makes them one of the best teams in Europe. Wenger will point to a collective team effort for Arsenal enjoying an excellent campaign, but there can be no doubt that Alexis Sanchez has been a revelation in his first season at the club and been the main reason behind the club’s success. The Chilean star has been in fantastic form all season, with Sanchez not only deservedly nominated for the PFA Player of the Year award, but also included in team of the season and many other Premier League XIs. Eden Hazard may be the only player that stands towards Sanchez and a crowning achievement to wrap up a superb season for the former Barcelona man; it promises to be a close call between two players who have been instrumental in leading their respective team to glory.

Arsenal fans to BOO or CHEER return of Fabregas? 1

Posted on April 24, 2015 by admin

The last time Arsenal beat Chelsea at the Emirates, in December 2010, one of the heroes that day was the Spaniard Cesc Fabregas, and Sunday will be his first return to the Emirates since he forced Arsene Wenger to sell him to his boyhood club Barcelona.

When that move was finalised, at a ridiculously low price, much was made of the fact that Arsenal had inserted a buy-back clause into the sale that meant that the Gunners would have first option if the Spanish giants decided to let Fab go at some point in the future. That point came and went last summer, but all Gooners were shocked that Cesc was snapped up by Chelsea instead of returning to the Emirates as expected.

Southampton star CONFIRMS Arsenal transfer rumours!! 0

Posted on April 23, 2015 by admin

After signing the versatile Calum Chambers from them in the last summer transfer window, it appears that Arsenal will be going back to take another Southampton player when the current season draws to a close.

It might not be the player you think though, as the man who plays alongside the heavily linked central midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has told the press that it is him, Victor Wanyama, that Arsene Wenger wants to sign this summer, as reported by Metro.

The Kenya international star said, “Wenger has been talking about me.

“He has let it be known he would like to sign me this summer.

Arsenal Rueing Their Early Season Form by SG

It goes without saying that Arsenal FC have a history which is the envy of most football teams. Yet, until The Gunners’ nine-year trophy drought was ended last season when they lifted the FA Cup, the noise of the questions being asked about the club’s ambition continued to grow ever louder. And even winning the grand old trophy did not sate the appetite of everyone.

The 2014-15 season has been another case in point. Arsenal’s 2014 FA Cup win merely raised expectations among supporters who hoped that Arsene Wenger would be able to rekindle his midas touch and use the success as a springboard.

Former Arsenal star´s tactics ALL WRONG for Chelsea? 4

Posted on April 21, 2015 by admin

He may not have done any actual managerial work since retiring from playing football, but the former Arsenal and Scotland international striker Charlie Nicholas does work as a TV pundit and football journalist so he should have a good grasp of tactics and knowledge of the clubs he talks about in the Premier League.

Arsenal with SHOCK La Liga BIG MONEY transfer swoop 0

Posted on April 19, 2015 by admin

The shock in this latest Arsenal transfer rumour is not that Arsene Wenger is a fan of Francisco Román Alarcón Suárez, but that Arsenal are planning to try to sign him this summer with a big money offer of around £35 million.

The talented midfielder, more commonly known as Isco, is currently playing for Real Madrid and doing very well since his €30 million move from Malaga two years ago, and that is why I would be surprised if the Gunners were able to sign him.

Wenger taking NO CHANCES with strongest Arsenal XI v Reading 1

Posted on April 17, 2015 by admin

Arsene Wenger has made a habit during his time in charge of Arsenal Football Club of using the two domestic cup competitions to give some valuable playing time and experience to some of the squad, including young players breaking through from the academy, older stars that may not be starting regularly and those that are coming back from injury.

But if the likes of Tomas Rosicky, Jack Wilshere, Abou Diaby, Calum Chambers and all were hoping that this would be the case against Reading at Wembley tomorrow, it looks like they are going to be disappointed, according to the manager´s pre-match interview reported on the Arsenal website.

Arsenal preview and starting XI for Burnley with Gibbs IN 1

Posted on April 11, 2015 by admin

Arsenal are looking to continue the remarkable recent run which has seen us overtake both Man United and the reigning champions Man City, while ending the Champions League hopes of Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool. But this is not time for Wenger and the players to pat each other on the backs as Burnley are no mugs.

They are a very hard working, energetic and physical team and Wenger mentioned in the pre-match build up that his players need to cope with that first and foremost before our superior technical skills can come into force.
