Arsenal starting line-up for Galatasaray in Champions League 0

Posted on October 01, 2014 by admin

Happy Arsenal anniversary to Arsene Wenger, who started his job as manager of the Gunners 18 years ago today. The Frenchman will only enjoy his special day, however, if the Arsenal team he selects to face the Turkish club Galatasaray are able to come away with all three points.

And their manager Cesare Prandelli has vowed to make that task as difficult as possible and send his team out to harry and chase their Arsenal counterparts as he clearly sees that as the way to disrupt us from our fluent passing game.

DONE DEAL as Arsenal boss confirms striker signing 1

With Yaya Sanogo still not due to return to action for Arsenal from his hamstring injury until after the international break, Arsene Wenger is keeping his fingers crossed that nothing happens to Danny Welbeck. In fact, the young French striker is a very raw gem that still needs a lot of polishing, so the centre forward position is still a bit light for the Gunners.

As long as Welbeck can stay fit foe the next few months though, we will then have two good options to choose from, with the France international Olivier Giroud due to make his comeback from that freak tibia injury picked up right at the end of the Everton game.

Welbeck disappointed but how do Arsenal fans rate his 1st month? 0

It has been a pretty good start to his Arsenal career for Danny Welbeck. Perhaps it has helped the 23-year old that he is used to playing for a big Premier League club and perhaps it is the fact that he has quite a few of his team mates from the England national team to help him settle.

But Danny has seemed to slot straight in to the Arsenal system and he has certainly offered the team some encouraging signs that he will provide a proper option and competition for our big Frenchman Olivier Giroud, when the 27-year old returns from his injury lay-off some time around the end of the year.

Arsenal WILL have Jack for Chelsea but who can face Galatasaray? 0

Posted on September 29, 2014 by admin

It is definitely a great piece of news for Arsenal, as the latest injury update reported by The Mirror reveals that, despite turning his problem ankle again in the north London derby draw with Tottenham on Saturday, Jack Wilshere has not got a big problem and will be fit for the trip to face Chelsea in the Premier League this weekend.

With Arteta and Ramsey already ruled out, that is a huge boost for Arsene Wenger but it does mean that the England international will not be risked against Galatasaray in the Champions League group game on Wednesday. At least that is a home game which the Gunners should dominate, but who will fill the central midfield positions?

The Ox says Arsenal are happy with point against Tottenham 0

Alex Oxlade Chamberlain happily managed to knock in Arsenal’s equalising goal against Tottenham on Saturday, and although everyone would have preferred to win the game, The Ox is content that we fought back to remain unbeaten and is trying to look at it positively.

“1-0 down is a tough ask, especially in a derby – it’s not a situation you want to find yourself in,” he said. “Nerves can creep up at that point because you know how much it means to everyone not to lose the game. So we did well to come back into the game and make it 1-1. At that point I felt we had the momentum to go and win it. Personally I’m a bit disappointed we didn’t managed to nick the last goal and take all three.

Chamberlain – Arsenal can beat Chelsea by controlling the game 0

The Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain seems to be in the news a lot more since his goal against the Spuds on Saturday and he has now revealed that the Gunners will not be changing their attacking style when they play Chelsea next week, but he expects a much better outcome than last years 6-0 demolition from Mourinho’s men last season.

“We do understand what happened there last season,” said Oxlade-Chamberlain. “Maybe we have got a point to prove there, we know this year we have got to step up in the big games and get some results in them this year.

In his ninth game of the season for Arsenal, including the Community Shield, our dynamic young midfielder finally got off the mark on Saturday. And what a time to do it, as the Gunners were staring down the barrel of a disappointing home defeat in the north London derby.

And as much as the Ox was delighted to score the equalizer and get his first goal of the season, as an report explains, the young England international feels that he should score more. He does have all the attributes and gets into the right areas after all.

Should Arsenal take Giovinco on a free transfer? 0

Posted on September 29, 2014 by admin

There have been numerous Arsenal rumours over the years linking us with the diminutive Italian international Sebastian Giovinco, but now it seems that the now 27 year-old midfielder will be available on a free transfer next summer.

He has declined to agree a new contract with Juventus and his agent has made it clear that he will be keen to start talks with clubs in January. Andrea D’Amico told “Sebastian is very focused on the season, calm and aware of his qualities.

“He always works hard to be ready. His contract expires in 2015. Anyway, we are calm.

Do stats support Cazorla claim about Arsenal striker Welbeck? 1

Posted on September 29, 2014 by admin

Arsenal struggled to find the net again yesterday, making it just 12 goals from the 10 games since the Gunners put three past the Premier League champions Man City. And against Tottenham, Danny Welbeck was unable to grab another goal after opening his Arsenal account in style the previous week at Aston Villa.

So the former Man United forward has still got a lot to prove in his new centre forward role with Arsenal, but one man who is sure he will do that is our Spanish international Santi Cazorla. The midfield maestro was reported by The Mirror saying some great things about Welbz, including talking up his abilities as a finisher, which is the main question being levelled at the 23-year old.

At least Arsenal were the BETTER team AND stay 4th 2

It certainly feels like a bit of a disappointment for Arsenal fans today, as we reflect on the 1-1 draw with Tottenham in the north London derby. The Gunners were unable to turn our superior passing and possession into all three points, making it four stalemates from the six Premier League games so far.

Arsenal really need to start turning those draws into wins if we are to have any hope of keeping up with the leaders Chelsea and the mounting injury crisis is starting to become a serious worry, just like last season, with Mikel Arteta, Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere joining their team mates in the Arsenal treatment room.
