Rubbish Ref fails to spoil Arsenal party 1

Posted on December 13, 2014 by admin

It might seem strange for an Arsenal fan to be moaning about the officials after Arsenal beat Newcastle by four goals to one and one of them came from the spot, but I am going to do it anyway. After a defeat it can seem like sour grapes anyway.

It did not make a great deal of difference to day that Lee Mason was to say it kindly poor, or to say it how I see it, unfair to the Gunners. But it could have done, because the match was quite delicately poised at 1-0 for a while in the second half.

Arsenal starting XI to face Newcastle with NO Podolski 0

After scoring the first and last goals for Arsenal in the final Champions League group game against Turkish club Galartasaray midweek, Lukas Podolski was probably thinking that he had a good chance of starting in the Premier League tday for the visit of high flying Newcastle.

But I think our German striker is set to be disappointed and the hamstring injury to Aaron Ramsey has certainly not helped his cause. It means that the Welshman will probably be replaced by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as Arsene Wenger has very few pother options in his fit and available Gunners squad.

Will Arsenal beating Newcastle make Stoke loss just a `BLIP`? 0

Posted on December 13, 2014 by admin

Arsene Wenger has been in the news a lot this week after the Frenchman got a public volley of abuse from some Arsenal fans as he went to board a train to come back to London after our dismal defeat at the hands of our perennial tormentors Stoke City last weekend.

And the manager has been quite guarded in his responses to that incident, stopping short of calling some of his own fans blithering idiots who know bugger all about football management, although I suspect that is what he really thinks.

Top striker told he WILL play for Arsenal… at some point 0

There has been hundreds of Arsenal rumours linking the German striker Lukas Podolski with a move away from the Emirates this January, especially as the player himself has not been shy about telling the world how unhappy he is with being on the Arsenal bench for most of the season.

But after the winger played the full 90 minutes against Galatasasy this week, scoring twice, it seems that Wenger has decided to reassure Podolski that he still has a future with the Gunners. Wenger said on Arsenal.com: “He’s getting back into good form and there’s a lot of competition up front,”

Wenger blames Arsenal defence and blasts referee Taylor 0

Posted on December 07, 2014 by admin

Arsenal have had their problems with certain referees before, with fans feeling that some like Mike Dean definitely do not treat the Gunners in the same way as other teams. And now the name of Anthony Taylor might be added to the list.

Arsene Wenger stopped short of blaming the referee for yesterday’s defeat away to Stoke City, as he accepted that we were at fault for allowing them to race into a 3-0 lead by the break. But the Frenchman could not help but blast Taylor for his decision to send our young defender Calum Chambers for a pretty soft second yellow card, as a report in The Mirror shows.

Wenger says Henry MUST work to come back to Arsenal 1

Posted on December 02, 2014 by admin

Arsenal fans everywhere will be excited about the news this week that perhaps the greatest player to ever pull on the famous red and white shirt, Thierry Henry, could soon be coming back to the club he still loves and where he really made his name.

But although Arsene Wenger is still very close with the player he turned into a world class striker after bringing him to the Premier League from Juventus, and declared that he expects his fellow Frenchman to come back to the Emirates at some point, the Prof also stated that it will not be merely in an honorary capacity, as a Daily Mail report has revealed.

Has Mourinho had another pop at Arsenal? 1

Posted on November 30, 2014 by admin

There is no love lost between Arsenal and Chelsea and that feeling has probably been heightened by the mutual animosity between our own Arsene Wenger and the Portuguese poser (prat, ponce or pillock – take your pick) Jose Mourinho. But after the touchline spat between the two managers at Stamford Bridge this season, they seem to have decided to lay off the insults.

But you know that will never last and it sounds to me as though the Chelsea boss is aiming a subtle dig at Wenger and Arsenal with his statement reported by Sky Sports about Diego Costa being suspended for their next game after picking up a fifth yellow card of the season.

Arsenal starting XI for West Brom WITH Koscielny and Giroud 0

Posted on November 29, 2014 by admin

It is not as if the Arsenal injury problems are easing off, because Jack Wilshere and Mikel Arteta have both joined their team mates in the treatment room in the last couple of games, but at least Arsene Wenger has some of his squad available again.

The two French internationals Olivier Giroud and Lauren Koscielny have been sorely missed while being out of action with Tibia and ankle tendon problems respectively, buty both are back and Arsene Wenger will bring them back into the starting line up for today’s Premier League away clash with West Brom.

Wenger backtracking on Arsenal transfer plans for January? 0

Posted on November 29, 2014 by admin

Arsenal fans will be starting to worry about the January transfer window after Arsene Wenger’s latest statement about his transfer plans. I for one had a sense of Deja Vu as the manager talked about how difficult it was to get good players in the winter window and I could not help remembering the disaster of last season when Wenger only managed to sign the injured Swedish midfielder Kim Kallstrom on loan.

Wenger lets back-up Arsenal DM Coquelin stay on loan!! Is he MAD? 0

Posted on November 28, 2014 by admin

I cannot believe that Arsene Wenger has not decided to recall the French midfielder Francis Coquelin to Arsenal. Instead, the manager has allowed the 23-year old midfielder to stay with the Championship club Charlton for another month.

I know that Coquelin has only made one appearance for the Gunners so far this season, when he filled in at left back in the Capital One Cup defeat to Southampton and I agreed with sending him on loan in the first place. It will give the versatile Frenchman some valuable competitive football and some experience of the rough and tumble of English football, but we might need him.
