Arsenal striker promises to put things right in Bournemouth 0

Posted on February 07, 2016 by admin

With Arsenal having struggled to score goals in recent games it would normally be the France international striker Olivier Giroud that was the main target of the Arsenal fans’ frustration, but despite the fact he has not found the back of the net since bagging a brace against Liverpool a few weeks ago, Giroud has been playing okay and the chances we have squandered have largely fallen to his team mates.

However, he is the centre forward and so is feeling a lot of the responsibility to get the Gunners firing again as soon as possible and so the big man has promised the Arsenal fans that he will be fully focused on getting the side back to winning ways in Bournemouth today.

Arsenal fans should be BUZZING about beating Bournemouth 0

There are a lot of nerves being felt by anyone concerned with Arsenal right now and you can hardly blame the Gunners for feeling that it could be all about to go wrong again as Arsene Wenger seeks his first Premier League title in 12 years.

But from what the Frenchman has been saying this week you can tell that the prof does not share this feeling of doom with the doubters among the football media and the Arsenal faithful and when you step back and look at things objectively there are plenty of reasons for the boss to be feeling pretty confident.

Now’s the time to put your money on Arsenal 1

OKay Arsenal fans, I know that we are all feeling a little bit dejected after the Gunners went from two points clear at the top of the table into fourth position. Our north London rivals Tottenham have gone above us in the league table for the first time all season, even if it is only by goal difference, and the awful Manchester United side under Louis van Gaal are somehow breathing down our necks with just five points between us.

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

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.

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.

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.

Arsenal transfer at risk from Man United hijack? 0

I personally think that only another injury to one of the Arsenal attacking stars will force Arsene Wenger into the market to sign a striker during the current January transfer window. But the Frenchman has surprised us before and even if he is not looking at a new forward this month, he might well already be looking at transfer options for the summer.

One of those is the Marseille and Belgium international striker Michy Batshauyi. The Gunners are said to have been keeping a close eye on the talented 22-year old and Wenger is supposed to be very impressed by him. His goal record of a goal a game for Belgium and almost one every other game in the French Ligue 1 is certainly impressive.

Is Wenger right to reject this Arsenal transfer bid? 1

Posted on January 26, 2016 by admin

The next game up for Arsenal in this tough period we find ourselves in looks a little easier than the previous three against Liverpool, Stoke City and Chelsea. But even though our FA cup opponents Burnley are one division below the Gunners, they are in very good form.

Arsene Wenger is sure to have one eye on the Premier League match with Southampton three days later and so the Frenchman is sure to rotate quite a few of his first team stars, including handing a rare start to the second choice keeper David Ospina who The Sun reports that the boss has turned down an offer for from the Turkish club Besiktas.

Why Wenger WAS to blame for Arsenal defeat by Chelsea!! 6

Posted on January 25, 2016 by admin

The lion’s share of the blame for yesterday’s somewhat surprising and very disheartening defeat at the hand of recent Premier League tormentors Chelsea has to lie at the feet of the German centre back Per Mertesacker. It was a poor decision stemming from his poor positioning and the defender topped it all off by looking away as he slid into a badly judged tackle on Diego Costa.
