Arsenal starting XI for must win Champions League match 0

Posted on November 24, 2015 by admin

Arsenal have a number of reasons for needing to win the Champions League game against Dinamo Zagreb this evening, with a little bit of revenge for the defeat in Croatia probably more important to the Arsenal fans that to our manager.

But Arsene Wenger knows that the Gunners need to win to have any hope of staying in the Champions League past the group stage or even of having Europa League games on Thursdays and he has said that he would take Europe┬┤s second club competition very seriously if we were to drop into it, so I expect a strong Arsenal line up to take to the Emirates pitch tonight.

How Zagreb can HELP Arsenal to Premier League title 0

Whether the game tonight ends up helping Arsenal to salvage our Champions League campaign this season, which has been left teetering on the brink of disaster after the Gunners lost three of the first four games in our group, remains to be seen.

All Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal team can do is to win the game tonight, hope that Bayern Munich give the Greek side Olympiacos a good kicking and then hope to do the same when we travel to Athens for the final game.

La Liga star delivers INCREDIBLE Arsenal transfer snub 0

Posted on November 24, 2015 by admin

A lot of the talk about Arsenal right now is the injury crisis and what Arsene Wenger might to do to boost his squad when the winter transfer window opens in January. One of the priority pieces of transfer business that the Arsenal fans wanted to see done was for the boss to sign a striker but after the French defensive midfielder Francis Coquelin picked up a long term injury last weekend the priority is now clearly to find a replacement for him.

WBA v Arsenal Ratings – Sanchez MOTM – Arteta NO COMMENT! 0

Posted on November 22, 2015 by Frank

There isn’t much left that can be said except that Arsenal had 73% possession to West Broms 27%. Arsenal had 11 shots to West Broms 5, and the Gunners still managed to throw the game, mostly thanks to a nightmare from our poor captain Mikel Arteta, who wasn’t even on the field for long!

Anyway here are the Player Ratings….

Cech 6.5
Can’t really fault him for the goals and he didn’t even have a bad game!

Bellerin 5
Worst game ever for Arsenal. Maybe he hasn’t completely recovered yet…

Koscielny 5.5
Another one not really on the ball. Join the club!

Wenger – Arsenal deserved more from West Brom 0

Posted on November 22, 2015 by admin

While Arsene Wenger admitted that Arsenal were not at their best in yesterday┬┤s trip to West Brom, the Frenchman also bemoaned his luck and said that his players deserved at least something out of the game.

In the post match interview reported on the Arsenal website the boss referred to that slip and miss from the penalty spot by the normally technically superb Santi Cazorla and suggested that it was a once on a million event that cost us at least a point.

Arsenal starting XI for EPL away day at West Brom 0

Posted on November 21, 2015 by admin

The pressure is on Arsenal to win this game and with the home side West Brom having struggled so far in the Premier League this season, you would expect the Gunners to come back to north London with all the points but with Manchester United having scored an early goal away to Watford, there is no room for error.

Arsene Wenger had hinted before the international break that he would be giving the Chile international forward Alexis Sanchez an enforced spell on the sidelines but after it was revealed this week that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would be slightly later to return than was first thought, the boss has little option but to start with Alexis.

Arsenal close in on STUNNING Spanish striker transfer 0

Posted on November 21, 2015 by admin

If Arsenal do try to complete the transfer of this talented and prolific striker in the January transfer window, but are beaten to it by one of the other big clubs said to be keen, such as La Liga and Champions Leagie holders Barcelona, then Arsenal fans will not have a lot to complain about.

But if Arsene Wenger comes out with the tired old phrase about there not being any players available and that he is working 24 hours a day in vain to find anyone, then we will be perfectly within our rights to have a good old moan and break out the ‘spend some f**ckin money’ banners.

Why this stat is NOT bad news for Arsenal 0

Posted on November 20, 2015 by admin

I have just a read a report in the football media that slams the Arsenal strikers and suggests that we have a bunch of muppets that have been playing like drunken Sunday leaguers with their laces tied together all season. But to be fair to the forwards of the Gunners, this report in the Metro reveals more about the, obviously anti-Arsenal, person who wrote it than it does about our effectiveness in front of goal.

WOW! Odds slashed on Messi to Arsenal transfer 0

Posted on November 20, 2015 by admin

Whether this is just another Arsenal transfer rumour that will come to nothing, a bit like the well publicised possible move from Real Madrid to Arsenal of the France international striker Karim Benzema this summer, only time will tell.

But we can hope, and after lost of reports in the football media of both Spain and England suggesting that the best player in the world might be keen on signing for the Gunners, there are some reasons for that hope. It would take a lot to prise the great Lionel Messi from his current club Barcelona of course, but all those problems with the Spanish tax authorities have definitely made it easier.

Don’t Panic! Arsenal’s EPL rivals hit by injury as well 0

Posted on November 20, 2015 by admin

For any Arsenal fans that might be cursing our luck and worrying about the lengthy injury list that Arsene Wenger is faced with, I have a few crumbs of comfort for you.

For one thing, Arsenal have more than enough quality to cope with the current injury problems, especially against a West Brom team that is struggling to reproduce their form of last season and were easily beaten by a not very good Man United team in their last outing.
