Arsenal´s STRONG starting XI for Tottenham cup clash 0

Posted on September 23, 2015 by admin

Arsenal fans have got used to the manager doing things his way and often seemingly against the general consensus of what he needs to do at certain times, so I would not be totally surprised to see the Frenchman stick with his usual policy of making big chances in the early rounds of the cup competitions.

This time, however, I think that Arsene Wenger will react to the situation and the fact that Arsenal are in dire need of a pick me up and a good result. So I am expecting a strong line up for the Capital One cup game against Tottenham this evening.

Arsenal XI for Chelsea – BFG and Walcott to start 0

Posted on September 19, 2015 by admin

The way that the Premier League fixture schedule worked out means that the game today will be the second time Arsenal have faced one of our big EPL rivals already and that adds extra pressure. But the same is true of Chelsea as they have already lost to Man City and are in a much worse position in the league than Arsenal.

Chelsea also have a few injury problems at both ends of the pitch, with Courtois out for a long spell with injury and with Pedro, Falcao and Willian out of action. That is quite a serious weakening of their attacking options and it puts a lot of onus on Diego Costa and Hazard.

Wrighty blames Wenger for Arsenal woes! Is he Right-y? 5

Posted on September 17, 2015 by admin

There have been a lot of people sticking up for Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal team selection and tactics after the unfancied Croatian champions Dinamo Zagreb inflicted and damaging Champions League defeat on Arsenal last night.

Many think that it was the performances of the individual players and the team in general that was to blame for the shock result and that they let the manager down, but the former Arsenal and England striker Ian Wright thinks differently. As reported by The Telegraph today, Wrighty was quick to blame Wenger.

Arsenal starting XI for Dinamo Zagreb with FOUR changes 0

Posted on September 16, 2015 by admin

We already knew that Arsene Wenger would be making at least two changes to the Arsenal starting line up from Saturday´s win over Stoke City, as he told us that Aaron Ramsey and Hector Bellerin were staying at home for a rest ahead of the Chelsea clash.

But with less than three days between games, those will not be the only changes made. Mathieu Debuchy will come in for Bellerin and I would be amazed if Kieran Gibbs did not replace Monreal on the other flank as well. As Ramsey has been playing on the right, he could be replaced by Oxlade-Chamberlain but I think he will bring in Giroud and push Walcott out wide instead.

WOW! Walcott´s finishing as good as Arsenal legend Henry!! 1

I am not making this up Arsenal fans and this is not some stat that has been cherry picked from a short space of time either, but over four years as an Arsenal player and it shows that the under fire England forward Theo Walcott is just as deadly in front of goal as the club´s all time record goalscorer Thierry Henry.

A Metro report shows the figures for Walcott´s last four seasons as a Gunner show his chance conversion rate in the Premier League (20 percent) is exactly the same as Henry´s were in his last four seasons at the club. The stats show that Giroud´s is 17 percent and Serio Aguero´s is 21 percent.

Giroud needs to prove the Arsenal fans are wrong 1

Not many players can decisively divide opinion among supporters. Olivier Giroud certainly falls in this category. Football has seen its share of characters brace the game and bear the blunt of varied opinions. Giroud doesn’t fall under that category but still divides opinion.

On Monday night he was booed off the pitch while playing for his national team France. For someone with a wonderful strike rate, he is often criticized by fans. What’s surprising is the fact that Giroud cops similar abuse even when he’s turning up for Arsenal.

Arsenal in for striker transfer after Newcastle struggle? 3

Posted on August 29, 2015 by admin

Arsene Wenger would not say so of course, but he must have been very worried as he sat and watched his almost full strength Arsenal side struggle to make much impression on the goal of a ten man Newcastle team. The only good thing to come out of the game, to be honest, was the three points but if this latest toothless performance can persuade the boss that he really could do with another striker, then maybe the win will not be the only positive.

Arsenal sign powerhouse striker with HUGE contract offer 3

Posted on July 23, 2015 by admin

This will make the powerful and talented striker one of the highest earning players in the Arsenal dressing room, although there is still a long way to go before the new salary of France international forward Olivier Giroud gets close to the really big earners in the Premier League like Wayne Rooney and anyone who plays for Man City.

But it is a significant move for the Frenchman who may have been worried about his future in north London with many Arsenal fans and members of the football press expecting Arsene Wenger to spend big and add to the firepower of the Gunners this summer.

This new striker CAN fire Arsenal to Premier League trophy 2

Posted on July 15, 2015 by admin

Arsene Wenger has been pretty cautious in the summer transfer window so far, adding just Petr Cech to the Arsenal first team. But he has been open about his confidence in the squad already at his disposal, especially if they can stay relatively injury free.

Getting Cecg from Chelsea should be a big help top our chances of beating Jose Mourinho’s team to the title and there is a lot of strength and depth all over the pitch as well, but there is no secret that one of the positions we may need to strengthen is the centre forward role.

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.
