Cazorla calls on Wenger to boost Arsenal front line 0

Posted on June 17, 2015 by admin

The Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla thinks that the Gunners have a ready-made strike force but believes that we may need a new arrival this summer as he is not convinced that Theo Walcott is enough to fire Arsenal to the title. The Spaniard also told how important it was for us to keep the defensive solidity that we found last season.

He said: “One of the key areas we have to focus on next season is being a very strong defensive team. If we have got those things under control our offence is already good enough.

So this is it Gooners, Arsenal’s last game of the current season is very close now and Arsene Wenger needs his players to dig deep for one last performance against Aston Villa at Wembley to make sure that history is made by the club and the manager today.

So as Wenger aims to become only the second manager to win the famous old trophy six times and the only man to do it since the war, his team selection today could be the most important ever. And with the Gunners having the chance to go past Man United to be the most successful club in FA cup history, we need him to get it right.

Wenger confirms Arsenal will NOT sign Cavani from PSG 1

Posted on April 10, 2015 by admin

For all the Arsenal fans who may have been getting excited after recent Arsenal transfer rumours had us strongly linked to the PSG and Uruguay international star Edinson Cavani, our manager has some bad news.

Even though the news coming from the French media suggests that Cavani is ready to end his spell in Paris with the French champions, Arsene Wenger has explained that he will not be coming to Arsenal this summer.

The Frenchman did not use Cavani’s name specifically but his words this week on the Arsenal transfer policy, reported by the Daily Star make it clear that Cavani is not on his list of summer transfer targets.

WOW! Cavani edges ever closer to Arsenal transfer 3

Posted on April 06, 2015 by admin

Arsenal fans were crying out for Arsene Wenger to sign the Uruguay international striker Edinson Cavani in the summer of 2013. That was a year after the Frenchman had brought in Oliver Giroud and Lukas Podolski after the departure of Robin van Persie and it is safe to say that we were not too impressed.

But Cavani went for around 65 million euros to PSG from his Italian club Napoli and they spent some of that money, too much really, in beating us to another striker in Gonzalo Higuain. Neither have exactly lit up their new clubs, but the Arsenal fans could finally be set to see what all the fuss over Cavani was about.

Giroud Keen To Beat Alexis To Arsenal’s Golden Boot! 2

Posted on April 02, 2015 by admin

Ever since he returned from injury, the Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has been in scintillating form for the Gunners, having now notched up 13 Premier League goals for the season. Despite the Frenchman’s long spell on the sidelines, he has now scored the same number of goals as teammate Alexis Sanchez and has made no secret of his desire to be Arsenal’s top goal-scorer ahead of the Chilean.

As reported by The Express, Giroud said said: “I’m not going to say something silly because it’ll be reported, but why not finish ahead of Alexis? We push each other, we’re on 13 goals, and I would like to score some more to help the team achieve its objectives.”

Newcastle v Arsenal Player Ratings – Good performance all round 0

Posted on March 22, 2015 by Patrick

Olivier Giroud was on target for Arsenal as the Gunners came away with a narrow 2-1 victory over Newcastle United at St. James’ Park. After a dominating first-half performance which included a brace from Giroud, Arsene Wenger’s men resisted a Newcastle onslaught in the second half to claim the victory and go back to within a point of Manchester City in second place. Here are the player ratings:

Ospina – 8.5 – It was another impressive performance from the Colombian. He was commanding in the air and looked assured throughout. The highlights were his brilliant reflex saves from Sissoko and Perez.

FOUR reasons to be cheerful for Arsenal fans in Monaco! 0

Posted on March 17, 2015 by admin

Arsenal may have left a mountain to climb after losing at the Emirates stadium to Monaco by 3-1 at the end of February. In fact the Gunners must pull off something that has never been done before in the Champions League if we are to achieve a remarkable comeback and stay in the competition.

So we know it is not going to be easy but there are a few reasons for the travelling Arsenal fans to believe that the team just might do it.

Arsenal to sign Kane from Spurs? 1

Posted on March 07, 2015 by admin

This Arsenal transfer would be a massive surprise to everyone and to be honest, is unlikely to happen. But the Tottenham striker Harry Kane would be a fantastic signing for Arsenal and he would fit perfectly into the Arsenal team.

It probably won’t happen Arsenal fans, and there are no rumours linking us with him, but how often does the rumour mill get it right? It would make Kane a pariah among Spurs fans of course but if they fail to reach the Champions League AGAIN and if Arsenal do make it AGAIN, you could see why Kane might fancy the move.

Why Arsenal trip to QPR the PERFECT set up for Man Utd clash 0

Posted on March 06, 2015 by admin

If you asked the Arsenal boss what he would have preferred from Wednesday´s trip to face QPR in the Premier League, it would probably have included plenty of Arsenal goals and a clean sheet against a lacklustre side that the Gunners did not have to break sweat to beat.

As we know, the game turned out to be far from that. But the most important thing for Arsene Wenger was ror us to get the three points and move on to the FA cup game at Old Trafford on Monday night. And from what the Frenchman said about his team´s gritty and hard won win at Loftus Road, reported by Arsenal.com, it is obvious that he was pleased with the performance as well.

Who is to blame for AWFUL Arsenal show v Monaco? 1

Posted on February 26, 2015 by admin

I understand that the buck normally stops with the manager and a lot of Arsenal fans will surely think that Arsene Wenger has a lot to answer for this morning. The players were not properly motivated and our tactics just fell apart. And keeping the terrible Mesut Ozil on for the whole game was just bizarre.

But Ozil was far from being the only Arsenal player that had a shocker. Not one of them played well in fact. Welbeck and Sanchez dropped deep and came central to rob us of any width, the full backs neglected their defensive duties, Koscielny and particularly Mertesacker made bad decisions and just defended poorly in general.
