The Arsenal stars I’m backing for Euro 2016 0

Posted on May 22, 2016 by Frank

The playing season is over for Arsenal, and it is time to prepare ourselves for the upcoming European Championships, but that doesn’t mean I will be putting my club shirt away for the summer.

Eight of our players have been selected for their respective countries provisional squads for Euro 2016, and I will be keeping a close eye on a number of them for different reasons.

Jack Wilshere is our only star set to grace the England side this summer, and while my priority will be for Jack to return from international duty injury-free, I will of course also be cheering on the Lions. I’m usually one to have a sentimental bet on our side to win the tournament, but the 9/1 (10.0) available is a little short for my liking.

Club legend warns Arsenal fans to back Wenger 1

Posted on May 20, 2016 by Frank

David Seamen has come out in the press to defend Arsene Wenger, whilst admitting he is desperate for the Arsenal boss to prove all his critics wrong.

The former England and Arsenal number one has claimed that there is nobody better at managing a club, and that he cannot wait to see him receive the plaudits he deserves once again.

He said: “For me, Arsene’s the best. I’ve worked with him I know how good he is. I’m just desperate for him to win it again, just to shut everybody up.

Arsenal boss on why he’ll start Walcott against Aston Villa 1

Posted on May 15, 2016 by admin

With Arsenal having produced one of our most lacklustre performances of the season, and there have been a few, in March against Watford to blow the chance of a third FA cup trophy in a row, Arsene Wenger and the Gunners have just one game left to salvage some pride from a pretty poor and definitely disappointing campaign.

So the Frenchman will want Arsenal to put on a show against the visitors Aston Villa today and that means goals. But with Olivier Giroud still struggling for form and with Danny Welbeck having been struck with another heavy injury blow, who will provide the attacking cut and thrust for us?

A plea to Arsenal fans to give Wenger some respect 4

Posted on May 11, 2016 by admin

We are now approaching Arsenal’s final game of this campaign and as we are playing the worst team around I am sure we will finish in a respectable third place. We may not have won a trophy but we have performed better than every other team except Leicester and Spurs, including all the other so-called Big Clubs.

Wenger gets Arsenal review MASSIVELY wrong 1

Posted on April 29, 2016 by admin

While a growing number of Arsenal fans have decided that Arsene Wenger is no longer the right person to manage Arsenal and move the club forward, challenging for major trophy honours like the Premier League and Champions League that we all want, we can still expect him to actually know what is going on.

But judging from the press conference he gave today ahead of the Premier League clash with Norwich City tomorrow, the Frenchman has got the Gunners confused with another team. As reported by The Mirror he made a number of claims about the season that just do not correspond to the facts.

Is Piers Morgan the reason Arsenal are stuck with Wenger? 5

Posted on April 28, 2016 by admin

Unless Stan Kroenke and the Arsenal board have a major turnaround in the next few weeks then it looks like Arsenal fans will be stuck with Arsene Wenger as the manager for one more year at least, for better or worse. But why are the Gunners willing to keep putting faith in a manager who has consistently failed to challenge for the title in over a decade of disappointment?

I have seen various theories, ranging from the old favourite about Kroenke knowing he is on a good thing as we keep getting into the Champions League without spending money to the suggestion that Arsenal cannot find the right man to replace him and are worried about us hitting the skids like Man United did with David Moyes.

Wenger – Why Arsenal couldn’t win the League! 2

Posted on April 21, 2016 by Frank

Arsene Wenger has finally decided to tell Arsenal fans why we couldn’t win the Premier League this season and it’s all down to our opponents who defended too well when they came to the Emirates!

Last season the Gunners averaged 2.16 goals per home game, but this campaign it dropped to a measly 1.5, but it’s not because our strikers are useless. “Our home form has not been exceptional,” Wenger said. “Our away form has been good.

“We did not score enough goals at home, especially against Crystal Palace with the amount of possession we had.

Bank on Berahino to score a penalty past Arsenal! 0

Posted on April 21, 2016 by admin

If you are looking for a banker bet to put on for the Arsenal v West Brom match tonight in the Premier League, maybe you should think about putting your money on the Baggies striker Saido Berahino to score a penalty, because that would be just about typical of the way things have been going for the Gunners this season.

Louis van Gaal was ribbed a couple of months ago for saying that his Manchester United team were suffering from Murphy’s law, or maybe it was the way he called it the ‘law of Murphy’ that aroused amusement in the football media. But if anyone should be complaining about things going against them it is surely Arsenal, not United, that have the best case.

Should Arsenal keep Arsene Wenger as manager for next season? 2

Posted on April 20, 2016 by Frank

Arsene Wenger has been a fantastic servant to Arsenal Football Club but is the Frenchman’s time at the club about to come to an end? Wenger has failed to inspire confidence at Arsenal since winning the Premier League back in 2004 but back-to-back FA Cup triumphs in the last two years have helped to ease the pressure on his shoulders.

However, the Gunners are on the verge of a trophy-less season and fans are rightfully angry at the lack of action taken by both the club and its manager. Wenger just doesn’t seem to have what it takes to lead Arsenal to the Premier League title and supporters are the ones to suffer most of all. Wenger still gets paid at the end of the day.

There is still value to be had in Arsenal’s season 0

Posted on April 17, 2016 by Frank

The season is not over yet, and there is plenty of value to be had from our team before it comes to a close. Arsenal have had an upturn in form and confidence in recent weeks, coinciding with the emergence of Alex Iwobi in the first-team and the goalscoring return of Danny Welbeck.

Four of our five remaining games are against teams in the lower half of the table, and you could add their current league positions to total a whopping 65, proving just how strong our end of season should be.
