Arsenal need to beat Monaco and Benfica to win Emirates Cup 0

Posted on May 31, 2014 by admin

The Emirates Cup seemed to be only trophy that Arsenal could win in nine years of suffering, but now we have got that monkey off our backs with our FA Cup win, we would still want to start the season with a bang.

It certainly will not be so easy to win as in some previous years, with the much improved Benfica as our opponents on the opening day, Saturday August 2nd, and the newly rich Monaco to face us on the following day.

Wenger – Of course Arsenal winning trophies matters! 0

Posted on May 17, 2014 by admin

The Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been reminiscing about the last time he won the FA Cup back in 2005, and how the Gunners were outplayed by Man United but still ended up winning on penalties.

That was considered as “winning ugly” in those days, and Wenger is hoping that Arsenal can win in a bit more style this time around, and seems amazed at how long ago it was as that was the last trophy that we actually won!

“You don’t prepare games with that [winning ugly] in your mind,” Wenger said. “You prepare by thinking that the best chance to win is to play at your best.

Arteta – Arsenal have no fear about winning the Cup 1

Posted on May 17, 2014 by admin

The veteran Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta does not think that the Gunners’ nine-year long wait for a trophy will affect the players mindset ahead of todays FA Cup Final against Hull City at Wembley today.

And the Spaniard is not happy that Jose Mourinho accused Arsene Wenger of being a Specialist In Failure, especially after his manager’s long record of success with Arsenal. Arteta said: “For some people success is only to win a trophy and nothing else matters.

“But analyse everything Arsene Wenger has done for this club, and if you think he is a failure, then I have a different opinion.

Podolski – Arsenal WILL win the Cup Final! 0

It is good to see confidence running through the Arsenal team, and after beating Hull City convincingly twice already this season, there is no reason to think we could lose this time around. Lukas Podolski obviously feels the same way as I do!

He said: “We are on a good run and are favourites.

“We play very well in the last five or six matches so we go to Wembley with thousands of our fans and we must play like in our last matches.

Arsenal to stick with experience against Hull City today? 0

Posted on April 20, 2014 by admin

Arsene Wenger certainly changed the habit of a lifetime in the last League game against West Ham, with an average age of over 29, by fielding his oldest side ever!

It seems that todays line-up could be similar after Wenger extolled the virtues of experience when you are fighting for the Wenger Trophy. He said: “Experience helps you to deal better with pressure because you know what is expected and you can focus in a more efficient way to express your potential,”

Match preview and team news for Arsenal v Wigan 0

Posted on April 12, 2014 by admin

So here it is Arsenal, I don’t think so many fans have been so excited for a game in such a long time. Today, Arsenal return to Wembley for the first time since the horror show against Birmingham in the Capital One Cup a few years back. A defensive error in the closing minutes saw Arsenal plummet into disappointment, a feeling that Arsenal fans have become accustomed to far too often in the past decade. However hopefully all that changes today, with a victory and something to smile about in the FA Cup semi-final.

All the pressure is on Arsenal…. 0

Wigan may be the underdogs of this game but the pressure is certainly on Arsenal who need to end what will otherwise be 9 years without a major trophy. Almost a decade ago Arsenal won the FA Cup with that famous penalty shoot out with Manchester United, this time however our opponents Wigan Athletic don’t quite boast the same stature, but will be a hard test none the less.

Arsenal over bad experience and looking to Wembley final says Szczesny 0

Posted on April 10, 2014 by admin

With all the comments that Arsenal and Poland international goalkeeper, Wojciech Szczesny, has been making you’d think he was either the spokesman of this team or that he was getting severely worried about the supposed threat of Iker Casillas’ transfer link to Arsenal.

But whatever the reason you cannot deny that Szczesny has been getting a mixed opinion on his words as of late, with half stating he should concentrate more on making himself a better goalkeeper than commenting on the team’s failure, whilst the other half think he is simply stating the truth. However what will you think of his new comments on the FA Cup released earlier?

Arsenal players expecting a fight for the FA cup final 0

Posted on April 09, 2014 by admin

This weekend, Arsenal return to FA Cup football having reached the semi-final stage, which is set to take place at Wembley on Saturday. Our opponents Wigan Athletic are a decent side, something we must give credit to, however Arsenal should still be expected to win. The only thing holding us back is our current form and I am sure that with the way that we are playing many may be feeling very similar how German youngster Serge Gnabry is feeling at the moment. However although he recognises the game will be tough, there is determination amongst the Arsenal players to get the job done.

Preview and Team News of Arsenal trip to Everton 0

Posted on April 06, 2014 by admin

The first fixture between the Arsenal and Everton was a close fought draw with two goals coming in the last 10 minutes. That day Mesut Ozil opened the scoring, and he did the exact same a few months later with the 4-1 win in the FA Cup. Arteta and another two Giroud goals secured victory for Arsenal that day and the Gunners will be hoping to keep their unbeaten string of games against Everton going with a win at Goodison Park.
