Arsenal debate – How much will Walcott be missed until comeback? 2

Posted on July 20, 2014 by admin

Arsene Wenger has given an Arsenal injury update on the progress and prognosis of the recovery of Theo Walcott. And while the news on Arsenal.com is good, with the lightning fast England star getting close to a comeback, it does seem like Arsenal will have to do without him at the start of the season.

Wenger said, “He’s progressing very well. He’s worked very hard during the summer and we expect him to be back in full training at the end of August.

“That’s [return date] difficult to predict. Once he’s back in full training it can be very quick. He has a good basis, which is what he’s working on now.”

Sanchez targets trophy treble after joining Arsenal 0

The stunning capture by Arsenal of the Chile international Alexis Sanchez has got the Arsenal fans, players past and present and the media buzzing with what he will add to the Gunners. And Sanchez himself seems just as excited to be coming to the Premier League with Arsenal.

The 25-year old arrived at his former club Barcelona too late to pick up a Champions League winners medal with them. He did pick up gongs for a La Liga title, a Copa Del Rey, Spanish Super Cup, European Super Cup and Club World Cup to add to his three titles in South America, but he is hungry for more with Arsenal.

Arsenal got a lot of stick last season, a lot of it from their own fans and former players, for the way they celebrated on the final day of the Premier League season up at Newcastle. Laurent Koscielny scored the vital goal that put the Gunners into the Champions League, and the French defender has been talking about just what a plce in Europe’s top club competition means to him and his team mates.

Flamini fire and Ozil skill can drive Arsenal on to trophy success 0

Posted on March 11, 2014 by admin

There have been a fair few notes on Arsenal’s midfield man Mathieu Flamini in recent weeks but what everyone seems to agree on is that the player certainly has passion.

Although I’ve said it before on various occasions, Flamini for me has been the most impressive player to join the Gunners this season. Although its really only between him and German international Mesut Ozil, I personally think Flamini has been the stronger character and the more consistent performer. Don’t get me wrong, Ozil has been great for Arsenal this season, despite the recent doubts that have surrounded him, but although this doesn’t necessarily mean I think he’s been worth his price tag, Flamini has certainly been worth his.

This season has been a roller-coster for Arsenal fans, but at least we have made it as far as March and are still in with a chance in the Premier League, the FA Cup and the Champions League, which is a lot better than in recent seasons where we have usually been discounted by the end of February.

Arsenal’s Champions League dream returns tonight in a fixture that will hopefully rival Manchester City vs Barcelona for excitement but see the home side get a better result against one of the European giants. The Gunners will tonight welcome German super club and current holders of the Champions League trophy, Bayern Munich, to the Emirates for the first leg of the last 16 round.

Flamini feels Arsenal should be happy to get out of Group of Death 1

Amidst all the fuss being created over Arsenal’s failure to hang on to the top spot in Group F of the Champions League, Gunners midfielder Mathieu Flamini has claimed that the fact that the North London side made it to the last 16 of Europe’s premier competition is an achievement in itself and believes that the team is due a lot more credit.

Following a rather comfortable win over Southampton in the Premier League, Arsenal welcome Ligue 1 side Olympique Marseille to the Emirates in the fifth round of the Champions League group stage. A victory for Arsene Wenger’s side can all but guarantee a place in the knockout stages of the competition and the Gunners will be looking to finish their business early as travelling to Naples in need of points is not a very ideal situation.

It is more than just a good start now for Arsenal… 0

Arsenal have gotten off to a very good start this season, excelling expectations in both the Premier League and Champions League. The Gunners may have faltered in the Capital One Cup, however the club’s respective positions in the other two competitions more than make up for it.

At the start of the season and after the 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa, nobody expected Arsenal to be in position we are in. However after beating German super club Borussia Dortmund and regaining our position at the top of the champions league group of death, Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has taken expectations even further to suggest that Arsenal could go as far as to win the Champions League.

Confident Koscielny feels Arsena will win in Germany 0

Posted on November 06, 2013 by admin

I think it’s no real surprise that Arsenal are expecting a difficult game tonight as we look to visit last year’s Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund at their home stadium in Germany. The highly contested game holds more pressure for Arsenal to rekindle their Champions League chase for top spot rather than Borussia Dortmund who took all three points from the Gunners a few weeks back at the Emirates.
