Is Viagra the reason for Giroud’s poor Arsenal form? 1

Posted on April 06, 2014 by admin

There is one interesting subtext to Arsene Wenger’s latest pronouncement on the reasons behind Arsenal’s poor record with players recovering from injuries. Gooners have long been aware that if Wenger says that an injured player will be out for a fortnight, then we may not see him for two months, etc. Either the Frenchman is not very good at forecasting, or the medical team is not doing their job properly.

After a thorough investigation by the club, they have suggested that players may be taking legal drugs in their private lives that may be affecting their form, with The Express claiming he is talking about “slimming aids, hair restorers or sex pills.”

Arsenal need Giroud and must not sell him this summer 1

Posted on March 27, 2014 by admin

There have been a fair few suggestions over the past couple of days that French international striker Olivier Giroud has been transfer listed by Arsenal Football Club in the last week. A string of bad performances over the course of this season has meant the club has apparently lost faith in him. There were also rumours that the move was because of his indiscretions in a hotel and his wife wanting to return to France.

Arsenal MUST forget about Suarez and support Giroud 0

Posted on March 04, 2014 by admin

Since the news broke from Liverpool owner John W Henry yesterday morning that Arsenal’s bid of £40 million plus one pound did meet and in fact exceed the buy out clause, I’ve seen numerous questions raised. Would Arsenal be in a better position had we signed Suarez? Why didn’t we go for another striker after Suarez failed?

I’ve even seen, `could Arsenal take legal action against Liverpool for their refusal to let Suarez go?` And although I cannot be certain in an answer with any of those questions, despite having a very strong opinion on some of them, I think the main thing Arsenal need to do is forgot about this for now.

Arsenal line-up and Preview of Sunderland BPL clash 0

Arsenal return to Premier League action once again this weekend for the first time since Wednesday 12th February, in the Gunners 0-0 home draw against Manchester United. It may seem like a long time ago considering we have since invited both Liverpool and Bayern Munich to the Emirates in the FA Cup and Champions League respectively. In fact it is little over a week and a half ago that Van Persie and his red devils came to the Emirates but in that time he was the only Robin to cause trouble for the Gunners. Bayern Munich’s Arjen Robben caused concern for Arsenal on Wednesday, and it is a result that will need to be overturned, but for now it’s important that the club and the players focus on the next fixture.

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.

Arsenal should not expect an easy game against Fulham 0

Posted on January 18, 2014 by admin

In a few hours Arsenal will host fellow London team Fulham at the Emirates. Teams find themselves in a different positions, while Arsenal is first and have been for a while now (with a few one day interchanges that is), Fulham is basically just above the drop zone. It’s safe to say both teams need points very much, so there will be no stepping down.

The big majority of my fellow Gooners believe it will be an easy win, so do most of the pundits on the web with their predictions. I on the other hand, am not so optimistic. Don’t get me wrong, we can, we should and we will win, but it will not be the routine job almost everyone thinks. I have several reasons to believe that.

Arsenal weakened but should get third win in a row 0

Going into the New Year, 2014 holds so much hope and promise for the Arsenal. In 2013, we saw the Gunners leapfrog rivals Spurs once more to the top four and Champions League football, whilst this current campaign has gotten off to a cracker that has seen Arsenal travel to the top of the Barclay’s Premier League.
Next up for Arsenal in the league is a visit from Cardiff, who come to the Emirates Stadium today, in hope of finding some light at the end of the tunnel, with their favoured manager no longer at his post. Instead Vincent Tan’s public humiliating will hopefully continue when Arsenal look to run riot against them.

Arsenal go down 6-3 thanks to poor defence and officials 1

Posted on December 14, 2013 by admin

Arsenal started the game very shakily, with City able to move the ball quickly and creating some chances. We got back into the game but we then proceeded to concede from a corner. It was played in and Koscielny unaware of Aguero’s movement let the Argentinian volley the ball into the net. 1 – 0.

We managed to get back into the game fairly quickly as Ramsey pressured Yaya Toure into a mistake and was able to quickly spread the play to Özil who passed the ball across the box to Theo who coolly finished the ball into the net. 1 – 1.

Arsenal boss issues firm NO to striker transfer rumours 0

Posted on December 03, 2013 by admin

Arsenal fans are well used to Arsene Wenger revealing as little as he possibly can about any Arsenal transfer business. You can’t blame him really, because as well as trying to avoid any complications with other clubs going for the same players, the Arsenal boss likes to do things the right way, not make bold statements intended to unsettle players.

So take Wenger’s denials, as reported by Arsenal.com, of recent speculation about possible strikers who could join Arsenal in January, with a large pinch of salt if you like. If it is true though, then it seems that Arsenal fans can forget about Alvaro Morata of Real Madrid or Alexandre Pato of Corinthians in Brazil.
