So Arsenal DID try to sign a forward this summer? 0

Posted on October 05, 2015 by admin

Even though us Arsenal fans are feeling on top of the world this morning and a lot more happy with our long serving manager Arsene Wenger, with a thumping 3-0 victory over Premier League rivals Manchester United being just what we needed, there is still a lot of anger and confusion about the failure to do much in the summer transfer window.

Wenger did keep saying that he was trying to find and sign players for Arsenal but that it was not easy and a report by Metro today seems to back up the claim.

Wenger loses rag with reporters AND Arsenal players 0

Posted on October 02, 2015 by admin

We are used to Arsene Wenger sometimes losing his temper with football reporters as they grill him after Arsenal have suffered a bad result or performance. The prof can usually keep his cool but he has been known to blow when he feels that he is being badgered.

He has certainly come under fire this week over all the Ospina and Cech selection saga and after snapping a bit in his post match press conference on Tuesday, Wenger was at it again today when he was asked the same questions in the press conference ahead of Sunday´s game with Manchester United. The whole thing can be seen on this link to the Arsenal website.

Arsenal fans accuse Wenger of THROWING Champions League 2

Posted on September 30, 2015 by admin

If Arsene Wenger was fully committed to Arsenal doing as well as possible and going as far as possible in the Champions League, you would think that the Frenchman would pick his strongest possible team for every game in the group stage. And that definitely means Cech, not Ospina.

But just because the boss has chosen to rotate his squad for the first two games, does that really mean that he is not at all interested in the competition, other than the annual money it brings in? Well some Arsenal fans seem to think so, as a Metro report shows some of the things posted by Gooners on social media.

Four changes for Arsenal v Olympiacos in Champions League 0

Posted on September 29, 2015 by admin

Even though Arsenal are right up against it after losing the first Champions League group game two weeks ago and even though we do not play again until late on Sunday, Arsene Wenger is going to rotate his starting XI for the second group game against the Greek side Olympiakos tonight.

I think the Frenchman will make four changes, which might sound a lot in a game we simply have to win, but there are good reasons for all of them. David Ospina was promised plenty of game time by Wenger in the summer to stop him leaving and so he is likely to feature in most, if not all, of our cup games.

Arsenal boss explains Martial transfer failure – Not Good!! 1

Posted on September 28, 2015 by admin

The Arsenal strikers may finally have found their shooting boots at the weekend, with Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud both adding to the hat-trick from Alexis Sanchez, but there are still a lot of Arsenal fans who feel that Arsene Wenger was wrong to not sign a striker in the summer transfer window.

It does not help that we are now being told that the Frenchman and the Arsenal scouting team have been following the form and career of Anthony Martial for some time. Many people were left stunned by the price paid by Man United to sign the young French forward but he has already gone some way to proving his worth, scoring four goals in his first four games.

Arsenal starting XI for EPL away day at Leicester 0

Posted on September 26, 2015 by admin

This really is a massive game for Arsenal; as a win would confirm that the Gunners have bounced back from two damaging defeats in a row and would leaves us looking pretty good for a Premier League title challenge, while a defeat would sap all the confidence gained from a north London derby win and confirm that it has been a well below par start to the season.

So there is no doubt that Arsene Wenger wants his strongest line up out there, although an injury problem to Coquelin is not allowing him to do that. Santi Cazorla is back after a one game ban and I think Wenger has to stick Flamini next to the Spaniard in the middle to give us energy and bite.

The Serie A star Arsenal will sign in January transfer window 0

Posted on September 24, 2015 by admin

It is being reported that Arsenal are planning to surprise us all and actually sign an outfield player this season. After being the only club from the top division of the five best leagues in Europe, perhaps Arsene Wenger has realised that his belief in the current Gunners squad may have been just a little too strong.

And with Arsenal having let in five goals in our last three games, it is hardly surprising to see The Independent reporting that the manager is looking to sign a defender in the January transfer window.

Arsenal´s STRONG starting XI for Tottenham cup clash 0

Posted on September 23, 2015 by admin

Arsenal fans have got used to the manager doing things his way and often seemingly against the general consensus of what he needs to do at certain times, so I would not be totally surprised to see the Frenchman stick with his usual policy of making big chances in the early rounds of the cup competitions.

This time, however, I think that Arsene Wenger will react to the situation and the fact that Arsenal are in dire need of a pick me up and a good result. So I am expecting a strong line up for the Capital One cup game against Tottenham this evening.

Arsenal reeling again from Coquelin injury blow 0

Posted on September 20, 2015 by admin

Arsenal fans have really had to brace ourselves and take some punishment this week, having three of our players sent off and losing first to the supposedly weakest team in the Champions League group and then having to listen to Jose Mourinho´s smug, hypocritical and blatantly untrue comments about Diego Costa after his cheating led to another defeat for the Gunners.

So we needed a bit of a pick me up, but instead the football gods decided to stick the boot in while we´re down and the seemingly innocuous knee problem picked up by Francis Coquelin at Stamford Bridge could see him miss the next four weeks of football, according to a Metro report.

Wenger – Costa always gets away with it 0

Posted on September 20, 2015 by Patrick

Chelsea’s Diego Costa wound up Gabriel yesterday to get the Arsenal defender sent off, but Arsene Wenger thinks that it was wrong for Costa to unpunished for his actions. Wenger said: “Costa can do what he wants and he stays on while everyone who responds to him has to be sent off.

“I think his behaviour is unacceptable. Look at the pictures and what he does to Laurent Koscielny. He pushes him down and hits him in the face before the throw in. And he always gets away with it. It’s surprising.
