Man City win proves the need for Arsenal to BEAT Liverpool 1

Posted on December 20, 2014 by admin

Last season and even early on this season, the Arsenal fans would have been more than happy to come away from an away game with a big Premier League rival without a defeat to chew on. And after last season’s humiliating 5-1 drubbing at Anfield, we would have been even happier not to lose to Liverpool.

But a draw is simply not good enough for the Gunners tomorrow and the fact that Man City have just beaten Crystal Palace to increase the gap between them and Arsenal to 13 points just highlights that fact. I expect Louis van Gaal and his Manchester United team to go home with all three points from his trip to a depleted Aston Villa as well, although Benteke and Agbonlahor will hopefully do us a big favour and get past De Gea in the United goal.

Can Arsenal really challenge Chelsea, City and United for this superstar? 0

Posted on December 12, 2014 by Patrick

Everyone single Arsenal fan and his grandmother knows that the Gunners have desperately needed a young, strong defensive midfielder to improve an already promising Arsenal squad, so when we hear that a 21 year-old FRENCH midfielder of the quality of Paul Pogba is available then surely Arsene Wenger must sit up and take notice?

Pogba has recently signed a new contract at Juventus, but nowadays that just means that the price will go up if the player really wants to leave. So it will take an offer of at least £40m to prise the 21-year-old away from Serie A.

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.

Proof Khedira is desperate to join Arsenal in January? 1

Posted on October 24, 2014 by admin

The Arsenal transfer rumours about the Real Madrid and Germany international midfielder seem to be growing all the time, so according to the old adage that there is no smoke without fire, there is definitely something going on behind the scenes.

But the Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti recently declared that he would not sanction the sale of his player in January even thought it meant that the La Liga club would receive nothing when he left in the summer. And he backed that up by bringing Khedira on against Liverpool on Wednesday, meaning the central midfielder would be cup tied in the Champions League knockout stages for Arsenal.

BFG says Arsenal STILL have title chance! Really? 0

Posted on October 20, 2014 by admin

Per Mertesacker is not the type of player to duck a battle or to shirk responsibility, so the Arsenal vice-captain will probably be kicking himself today. The whole team came out after the break not fully switched on but it was the German defender that should have prevented Hull scoring that second goal which nearly led to a rare home defeat for Arsenal.

But Mertesacker has alsdo taken positives from the way the Gunners started the game and the way we have been dominant in almost every game this season without getting the results he thinks we deserved. And this is why our centre back is not giving up on the English Premier League title just yet, as a Sky Sports report reveals.

Chamberlain – Arsenal can beat Chelsea by controlling the game 0

Posted on September 29, 2014 by Patrick

The Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain seems to be in the news a lot more since his goal against the Spuds on Saturday and he has now revealed that the Gunners will not be changing their attacking style when they play Chelsea next week, but he expects a much better outcome than last years 6-0 demolition from Mourinho’s men last season.

“We do understand what happened there last season,” said Oxlade-Chamberlain. “Maybe we have got a point to prove there, we know this year we have got to step up in the big games and get some results in them this year.

Will Arsenal fans turn on Cesc Fabregas? 6

Posted on July 21, 2014 by admin

As Arsenal fans, we have had to get used to seeing some of our best players leave the club in recent years, for one reason or another. Some, like Samir Nasri and Robin van Persie, have turned instantly from hero to villain because of their reasons for leaving and the way they did it. Others, like Thierry Henry, will always be remembered as club legends.

The Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas used to fall into the second category, even though he forced his way out and left Arsenal with a huge hole in the team. We understood, I think, because he was going back to his boyhood club, Barcelona, who just happened to be on top of the world at the time.

Why Eto’o transfer could be smart move for Arsenal 1

Posted on July 03, 2014 by admin

There have been Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with the Cameroon international Samuel Eto’o ever since it was announced that Chelsea would not be giving the striker another crack at the Premier League. He was officially released by the Stamford Bridge club on May 23rd and is available on a free transfer but has not decided where to go next, at least not officially.

The 33-year old has suggested, though, as a Talksport report reveals, that he would like to stay in England and I think that Arsene Wenger could do much worse than sign him up for a season. No transfer fee and the wages would not be too bad, for a proven striker who scored nine goals in 21 Premier League matches last season sounds like a great opportunity to me.

Arsenal legend has NO faith in Wenger boys winning BPL title!! 2

Posted on June 17, 2014 by admin

After Aaron Ramsey scored the extra time goal to beat Hull City at Wembley and give Arsenal football Club an FA cup to celebrate for the first time in nine years, a lot of us fans are dreaming that Arsene Wenger can go one step further next season, by winning the Premier League to become the champions of England again.

But former Gunner and long time Gooner, Tony Adams, does not see it happening, despite the importance of the FA cup trophy for everyone connected with the club. Adams does not always cover himself with glory when making statements to the media, but you have to agree that he could have a point on this one.

Wenger refuses to change Arsenal tactics against Top Teams 0

Posted on May 04, 2014 by Patrick

One of the major problems Arsenal fans have with Arsene Wenger is that he never changes his tactics depending on who his opponents are, in fact he doesn’t even talk about them with his players but just tells them to play their normal attacking style. It is probably good for the fans to watch entertaining games, but it can be painful for Arsenal fans, especially when looking at the 20 goals we conceded against the Top Teams this season.
