65 Today? Time for Wenger to retire from Arsenal! 2

Posted on October 22, 2014 by Patrick

Happy birthday Arsene – NOT! Surely when you get to 65 years of age you don’t need all this stress and strain, you could be heading for a heart attack if you carry on like this. Arsenal were incredibly lucky to win tonight against a useless Anderlecht side that has only won once in their last 20 Champions League games.

Never mind Arsene. What about us poor Arsenal fans who have been left with our hearts in our mouths at the end of nearly every single game, starting with the last minute equaliser at the Emirates against Crystal Palace on the opening day of the season.

Poor form means Arsenal ARE prepared to dump Wenger 3

If Arsene Wenger can not get Arsenal firing on all cylinders soon, the Frenchman might find his long reign as manager of the Gunners finally coming to an end, according to a Metro report.

Expectations were high at the club after Wenger was given some serious money to spend to build on last season’s FA cup success and having led the Premier League for longer than any other team. But Arsenal have failed to live up to those expectations so far and even though the long list of injuries has not helped, it is the manager that takes the blame in the end.

Ozil ready to join Arsenal panto villain Nasri at Man City? 2

Posted on October 21, 2014 by admin

I am not the biggest fan of the Arsenal and Gerrmany midfielder Mesut Ozil. But that does not mean that I am happy about the news that the World Cup winner could be heading to Man City.

According to a Metro report the Man City boss Manuel Pellegrini has asked his club chiefs to prepare an offer for Ozil in January.

And if recent Arsenal transfer rumours are true. Ozil is ready to go because of Arsene Wenger’s stubborn idea that the German should play on the wing rather than the number 10 role that made him a global superstar.

Will Arsenal regret being knocked out of the Capital One Cup? 0

Posted on October 21, 2014 by Patrick

Arsenal, in the recent past, have always gone into a season competing on four fronts — Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and the Capital One Cup — thereby giving themselves a chance of pocketing one of the four possible trophies when the curtains are pulled on the season. However, having been knocked out in the 3rd round of the Capital One Cup by a spirited Southampton side, the Gunners now see themselves involved in the Champions League, in addition to the regular Premier League commitments — at least until January — when the draw for the FA Cup would be made. And, having started off on a poor note in the Premier League, will Arsenal rue being knocked out of the Capital One Cup, which is always another trophy, nonetheless, to fight for?

BFG says Arsenal STILL have title chance! Really? 0

Per Mertesacker is not the type of player to duck a battle or to shirk responsibility, so the Arsenal vice-captain will probably be kicking himself today. The whole team came out after the break not fully switched on but it was the German defender that should have prevented Hull scoring that second goal which nearly led to a rare home defeat for Arsenal.

But Mertesacker has alsdo taken positives from the way the Gunners started the game and the way we have been dominant in almost every game this season without getting the results he thinks we deserved. And this is why our centre back is not giving up on the English Premier League title just yet, as a Sky Sports report reveals.

Why Arsenal WILL bounce back against Anderlecht 0

Posted on October 19, 2014 by admin

I think that one of the reasons for Arsenal’s lacklustre and strangely disjointed performance against Hull City at the Emirates yesterday was because we were not concentrating properly on the game. Arsene Wenger mentioned the lack of focus and I think he was right and that he was just as much to blame as the players.

We expected to win and already had one eye on the Champions League game against Anderlecht on Wednesday. And that came back to bite Arsenal on the bum, but the manager and players need to regroup now and make sure that at least we don’t make the mistake worse by failing to beat the Belgian champions, which I don’t think we will.

Is Schneiderlin transfer the answer to Arsenal’s problems? 0

Posted on October 19, 2014 by admin

It seems to me as though Arsenal are being punished for their failure to push on and make a real concerted effort to sign Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton during the summer transfer window. The France international has not only pushed on with his personal performances, but he has led Southampton to the sort of results that Arsene Wenger and the Gunners can only dream of at the minute.

And it looks like the Arsenal boss may have realised his mistake, with The Mirror reporting that Wenger is planning to go back for the Southampton star in the January transfer window.

At least Arsenal’s injury situation is looking better! 1

Posted on October 18, 2014 by admin

There was not a lot of signs of improvement from the Arsenal players on the Emirates pitch against Hull yesterday, with a last gasp goal from Danny Welbeck only enough to rescue a point. Our bluntness in front of goal matched with our lapses at the back was typical of what we have been seeing from Arsenal so far this season.

But there is a strong argument that a lot of our troubles have come about because of the long injury list. Any team is going to miss players of the calibre of Walcott, Ramsey, Giroud, Koscielny and now Ozil, but if there was not much encouragement on the pitch yesterday, the situation off it is more promising.

Same old story at both ends for Arsenal 0

Posted on October 18, 2014 by admin

If you are looking for an explanation as to why Arsenal struggled to rescue a draw with Hull City at the Emirates today and only managed it with a stoppage time equaliser from Danny Welbeck, there are two simple reasons. The Gunners are still struggling at either end of the pitch.

You cannot blame Wojciech Szczesny for any of the four goals scored in the last two Premier League games, but Mertesacker and Koscielny have both made mistakes and the fact the defensive part of the squad is not strong enough has been made crystal clear by the injury situation. We cannot seem to keep a lead for long and our clean sheets have disappeared.

Former Arsenal star says new England role WRONG for Wilshere 0

Despite playing at the top level of football in England for years and winning a hatful of medals with Arsenal, including being a big part of the incredible invincibles season of 2003-04, Ray Parlour never managed to hold down a place with the England national team.

The 41-year old did win 10 international caps in a two year period but his one chance of playing in a tournament, Euro 2000, was wrecked by a knee injury and his England career fizzled out once Sven-Goran Eriksson took over from Kevin Keegan as England manager.
