Arsenal striker promises to put things right in Bournemouth 0

Posted on February 07, 2016 by admin

With Arsenal having struggled to score goals in recent games it would normally be the France international striker Olivier Giroud that was the main target of the Arsenal fans’ frustration, but despite the fact he has not found the back of the net since bagging a brace against Liverpool a few weeks ago, Giroud has been playing okay and the chances we have squandered have largely fallen to his team mates.

However, he is the centre forward and so is feeling a lot of the responsibility to get the Gunners firing again as soon as possible and so the big man has promised the Arsenal fans that he will be fully focused on getting the side back to winning ways in Bournemouth today.

Arsenal dream duo set to destroy Chelsea 0

With Arsenal top of the table and our next Premier League opponents Chelsea languishing down in 14th place, I think we can safely expect the strugglers from Stamford Bridge to arrive in north London on Sunday with a big blue bus to park.

So the onus on Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players will be to break down the Chelsea defence, something we were unable to manage away to Stoke City yesterday. So you want your most potent attacking players fit and available. That is why it is great news that the injury that kept our German international star Mesut Ozil out at the weekend was only a minor problem and the boss declared that he would definitely be back for the Chelsea match.

Arsenal starting XI for Liverpool has few surprises 0

Even though Arsenal’s opponents this evening have not been the force that most of us thought they would be this season, currently languishing down in 8th place in the Premier League, and they are also having to cope with a massive injury list right now, I do not think Arsene Wenger will be taking any chances.

A game at Anfield can always be a nightmare and even though Arsenal have only lost once on the last seven visits I expect the manager to pick his strongest starting line up even if some of those players have had a tough fixture schedul and started the FA cup win over Sunderland just four days ago.

Arsenal bounce back to begin FA cup defence in style 0

Towards the end of the FA cup clash between Arsenal and Sunderland at the Emirates stadium, the poor old Black Cats of Sam Allardyce looked like they did not know what day it was. The Gunners were in full flow and could have scored a hatful of goals as the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Joel Campbell, Bellerin, Giroud and all ran rings around the tiring visitors.

But it was not always so comfortable and the Arsenal players had to dig deep into the resources of energy and application after a slow start and a mistake gave Sunderland the lead about halfway through the first half. They had other chances as well, including a header that came crashing off the bar early in the second half.

Super Rambo steers Arsenal to Premier League summit 0

I had a feeling that the Arsenal and Wales international star Aaron Ramsey would prove to be a key player for the Gunners at Aston Villa today and so it proved. Super Rambo is taking his chance to play in his preferred central midfield position with both hands and feet and if he keeps this up then Santi Cazorla may well find himself out on one of the flanks when he comes back from injury.

As well as being the driving force behind Arsenal’s victory at Aston Villa today, which took the Gunners to the top of the Premier League, Ramsey did me a big favour because I had just put him in my dream team and made him the captain, yay!

Arsenal Lucky? Yes but for just ONE key Champions League moment 0

After Arsenal pulled off the great escape in Greece last night, Arsene Wenger spoke about the game and suggested that getting through when all the odds had been stacked against us could mean that this will be our lucky year in the Champions League.

I am not too sure about that but you could definitely say that we were due a bit of good luck. After all we were handed a group with one of the big favourites Bayern Munich and then the only luck we had in the first two games was bad. I still feel that Giroud’s red card was very harsh, there were deflected goals and we just did not get the rub of the green.

Delighted Arsenal boss hails PERFECT penalty taker 0

Arsene Wenger was clearly delighted with his Arsenal team last night and he had every reason to be as, to a man, the Gunners stepped up and put in a real shift to claim a first away win over Olympiacos and pip the Greek champions into second spot in the Champions League group.

Wenger hailed the performance as a real team effort, which it certainly was, but he also had some extra words of praise of the hat-trick hero Olivier Giroud. The France international striker probably felt that he owed his manager as well, after getting sent off away to Dinamo Zagreb in the first group game and helping to get Arsenal into the tough position we were in.

Well Arsenal fans we did it! Did you really believe? The players certainly did and I have to give Arsene Wenger full credit for getting the Gunners in the right frame of mind. This result and they way it was done could well give the team a huge boost that sees go from strength to strength in the Premier League as well as the Champions League.

Even after a tough start when Olympiacos put us under real pressure, the players stood firm and never let the hostile atmosphere get under their skin. So once Arsenal had started to take the game under control about halfway through the first half, we never let it go.

Arsenal blow first half lead YET AGAIN!! 0

I suppose it would be fair to say that Arsenal were a little bit fortunate to find themselves heading into the break in the lead, as the visitors Sunderland had started the game pretty well while the Gunners were struggling to find any kind of fluency or threat.

The Black Casts had enjoyed the best of the chances including an early one for Borini that he really should have done better with after being fed through to a one on one with Petr Cech. But Arsenal did take the lead in the 33rd minute and it was a goal of real quality.

It is looking more and more likely that Arsene Wenger will be forced into the transfer market this January as Arsenal have lost Francis Coquelin for at least the next three months,but other than a DM, Arsenal are also looking very grim in the striking department. Theo Walcott has been out for a month already with a calf strain and is still a few weeks from returning. And EVERYBODY knows that will not be his only time out injured this season.
