I will never understand why Arsene Wenger felt it was alright to go into the new Premier League season with an Arsenal squad lacking in enough strength and options in the key areas of attack and defence. Most people saw that need before the end of last season but we are still waiting for the Frenchman to do something about it.
It was a month ago when Arsenal travelled to Lens for the first game of pre-season and that was when Per Mertesacker got his injury, so the manager has known since then he would be short at the back, as he also knew that Koscielny would be a late returner from Euro 2016. ...........Read more
One of the low points of last season for Arsenal, and there were quite a few of them as we failed yet again to make a decent job of challenging for the Premier League title or the Champions League, was the end of our hopes of making it three FA cup wins in a row.
That FA cup loss at home to Watford in March was an awful performance by the Gunners, but it was also something of a surprise, as we did beat the Hornets comfortably at home and away in the league, with an aggregate score of 7-0over the two matches. ...........Read more
At least Arsenal did not lose in yesterday’s away game against the reigning Premier League champions, although having done the double over Leicester City last season it does feel like a bit of a let down. After losing the opening game of the season at home to Liverpool, it was important not to lose again but with all of the big boys losing a win would have made us all feel so much better. ...........Read more
I am not sure what to9 make of the comments about Arsenal made by the Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp this week, as he prepares to bring his team to north London for the opening round of Premier League games. Perhaps the German is playing a bit of mind games and maybe trying to get his opposite number Arsene Wenger to change his own approach or even to relax and expect today’s visitors to play a certain way. ...........Read more
Arsenal are just a day away from kicking off the Premier League campaign for the 2016/17 season, with the opening fixture coming against Liverpool. Yet with just a day to go, Arsenal fans still do not know who their official club captain is, after Mikel Arteta’s departure from the club.
Mikel Arteta retired from the professional game at the end of last season so he could link up with Manchester City’s coaching team. The Spaniard held the captaincy for two years following on from Thomas Vermaelen’s move to Barcelona and during his time as captain, Arteta lifted a single FA Cup and a single Community Shield. ...........Read more
Being fans of Arsenal Football Club over the last few years has often been a frustrating life, even though we have been luckier than most in having two FA cup trophy wins to celebrate and always making it into the elite European club competition which is the Champions League.
The frustration has been with the way Arsene Wenger and the club refuse to spend the money that everyone else seems to think is needed to transform us from a good team that plays attractive football and gets value for money into a team of true champions. ...........Read more
Whilst we await to see who our next signing will be, Arsenal may as well think about what Granit Xhaka will bring to the side this season and Per Mertesacker has been full of praises about his new teammate.
Speaking with Arsenal.com Per Mertesacker, who is anticipated as the club’s next captain, was keen to express his excitement about linking up with Gunner’s new boy Granit Xhaka. Following on from the Swiss international’s £30 million move, Arsenal fans eagerly anticipate to see the club’s new signing in action after an impressive Euro’s with his national side Switzerland. ...........Read more
