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.

Tottenham star’s taunts to ‘spur’ Arsenal into action? 0

Posted on February 04, 2016 by admin

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.

Strong Arsenal XI for Southampton has SEVEN changes 0

Posted on February 02, 2016 by admin

Arsene Wenger made nine changes to the Arsenal starting line-up for the FA cup match against Burnley on Saturday, but it was still a pretty strong Arsenal side and two of those changes were first team players making their return from injury.

We also saw Mohamed Elneny make his Arsenal debut, while Per Mertesacker was banned after being sent off against Chelsea, so all those changes were not really down to the boss playing a weakened team. So if the boss does make the seven changes that I expect him to for the visit of Southampton today then he will still be selecting his strongest 11 players.

Were Arsenal too soft in letting Debuchy leave? 1

Posted on February 02, 2016 by admin

The Arsenal and France star Mathieu Debuchy managed to get his wish and leave the Gunners on loan in a deal done in the last few hours of transfer deadline day. I can understand that it was frustrating for the right back to not be playing much and that he was worried about his place in the France team for the Euro 2016 tournament in his home country this summer.

But at the end of the day, he is an Arsenal player first and foremost and it is the Gunners that pay his very good salary, so I am not sure why he feels vindicated after Arsene Wenger allowed him to join Bordeaux on loan for the rest of the season, as a report in The Sun explains.

Arsenal to seal last gasp transfer with STUNNING striker signing? 0

Posted on February 01, 2016 by admin

As per usual the Arsenal manager has been saying both before and during the current transfer window that he was open to the signing of top players if only he could find them, but try as he might he just could not identify any available players that would improve the squad.

Maybe he has been right as well, but now that the Metro is reporting that Arsenal are one of a number of clubs to have been offered the PSG and Uruguay centre forward Edinson Cavani, that could well have changed.

Arsenal team for Burnley in FA cup is VERY strong 0

Posted on January 30, 2016 by admin

Arsene Wenger is having to walk a fine line with his Arsenal team selection today. The Frenchman must balance the need to get through to the next round of the FA cup and stay on track for a record three trophy wins in a row, with the need to treat the Premier League title race as a priority.

He also needs to weigh up the benefits of playing a strong side against the desire to rest some key players like Mesut Ozil agead of the game against Southampton in the league on Tuesday. It is all about risk and reward really and the boss suggested in his press conference that because Arsenal really need a win after three games without one he would be leaning towards as strong a team as possible.

Does 2nd Arsenal transfer bid mean Gibbs is Gunner go? 1

Posted on January 29, 2016 by admin

The Arsenal and England international left back Kieran Gibbs might have been feeling a little bit frustrated and sorry for himself before these Arsenal transfer rumours started hitting the press, although he has showed a strong and professional attitude to not complain and to perform for the Gunners when he does get a chance.

But even though the stats show that Gibbs has played 21 times for Arsenal this season, only two of those were Premier League starts and it is clear that the defender is second choice to his older and more experienced Spanish team mate Nacho Monreal.

FULL Arsenal transfer rumour news GREAT for Gooners 1

Posted on January 28, 2016 by admin

Arsenal fans are well used to Arsene Wenger pulling a fast one on us during a transfer window. Usually the Frenchman keeps us hoping and says he is looking for players before not making any transfers and saying that he just couldn’t find any.

This time though, the boss has been saying that he is unlikely to anything more than the Elneny signing, but all of a sudden the last week of the window seems to have gone a bit mad, rumour-wise. According to The Mirror we could be about to finally sign the Spanish striker Alvaro Morata with a huge bid to Juventus. The report also claims that we have had an initial bid rejected by Napoli for their midfield star Jorginho but could return with another.

Coquelin comeback hands Arsenal key to Premier League title 0

Posted on January 28, 2016 by admin

The worst games of the season for Arsenal so far, ignoring the very predictable problems we had away to Bayern Munich in the Champions League, have come when we did not have the defensive midfield ability of French Gunner Francis Coquelin on the pitch.

But hopefully the Guuners will now be able to avoid results like the 3-0 reverse at Sheffield Wednesday and the limp loss away to Southampton, because Le Coq is back. There were some stats produced last week that showed that having the Frenchman in the middle saw Arsenal concede 50 percent fewer shots on goal and concede a lot less goals.
