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

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

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?

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

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.

Arsenal team news, preview and prediction for Swansea 1

Posted on March 25, 2014 by admin

This game coming so soon could be a blessing in disguise for Arsenal. We need an immediate response to that shambolic display at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and Swansea aren’t much of threat this season, especially away from home.

Arsenal need to approach this game with caution but not so much caution that we see a static display like against Man Utd again. We need good intelligent movement up front and quick incisive passing in midfield. We need to keep a decent shape so we can actually recover when we lose the ball. Finally, we will need to see better positional play from our wide players and our central midfielders.

Can Arsenal give Wenger the Grand game he deserves? 0

Here we go Arsenal fans, today is the day for Arsene Wenger and his side. Wenger celebrates his 1000th game in charge of the Gunners since joining in 1996, and almost 18 years on let’s hope we can get a win on this momentous occasion. Arsenal really have gone through the ups and downs under Wenger and whilst there have been times in which the fans have doubted him, the club has always stood by Le Prof and this season it looks as if that may be paying off, as it is getting increasingly likely that silverware could be coming to the Emirates for the first time since it opened.

The starting XI Arsenal need to beat Chelsea 0

Today Arsenal will travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea in the Premier League. Table toppers Chelsea will be hoping to get back on form in the league, and a win for the moody Blues will surely knock Arsenal’s title challenge down and out. In terms of team news, not much is expected to change. Chelsea will be without Willian and Ramires after both were sent of against Villa last weekend, whilst Arsenal on the other hand, although they don’t have any returnees from injury, don’t have any more key players missing since the last game and so I’d expect them to line up like this:

Arsenal trip to Chelsea is MASSIVE for so many reasons! 0

The game against Chelsea will be a momentous occasion for Arsene Wenger and this Arsenal side. The Gunners boss will take part in his 1000th Game in charge of Arsenal and he is hoping to secure it with a win.

Since Wenger took over almost 18 years ago, it has certainly been a time of ups and downs for the club. We have experienced times of glory but also times of sadness. The last nine years have not been easy but Wenger has always aspired to achieve more with Arsenal again.
