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.

Striker warns Man United that Arsenal have TOO MUCH for them! 0

Not only is it looking like Arsenal will be battling with Manchester United until the end of the season for a top four finish in the Premier League, but the football fates have matched the Gunners up with our old enemy for a place in the FA cup semi-finals.

But there is no fear in the Arsenal camp about the upcoming clash at Old Trafford, if the recent comments by our French international centre forward Olivier Giroud are anything to go by. The 28-year old was understandably in a buoyant mood after scoring both goals against Middlesborough to get the Gunners into the quarter-final but that is not the reason he is so confident about Arsenal’s chances in the cup and league.

Arsenal’s Danny Welbeck seems to be back to where he started! 0

Danny Welbeck was thrown straight back into the starting line-up on his return from injury in Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat by Spurs. In many ways it was a vote of confidence from Arsene Wenger. But at the same time there are now going to be questions about Welbeck’s role in the team, and where exactly will he fit in?

Welbeck left Manchester United in the summer window for Arsenal to play regular first-team football. He also wanted the chance to play as a central striker, having done so more often for England than United. He was initially handed that task by Wenger, but that was largely due to Olivier Giroud’s injury. Since Giroud’s return, Welbeck has been given the same wide attacking role that he was often employed in by United.

Arsenal injury curse strikes AGAIN 0

Ever since the start of the Premier League season, Arsenal have had to somehow cope without almost a whole team worth of first team players. And it always seemed to be a rash of players in the same areas of the squad being out of action at the same time.

First it was the defence, with Debuchy, Koscielny and Gibbs all missing games and then it was midfield, with Ozil, Wilshere and Ramsey. But even with Walcott still injured and our big French striker Olivier Giroud missing a couple of months after surgery on his Tibia, the Gunners never seemed short up front as there were good options for Wenger.

Debuchy – Arsenal NEED to beat West Ham 0

Posted on December 28, 2014 by Patrick

There is no doubt that today’s game against West Ham United is a big six-pointer in Arsenal’s quest to regain their rightful place in the Top Four, and the French right-back Martin Debuchy is under no illusions about how close the game could be.

Martin said on “It will be difficult at West Ham on Sunday, but we need to win, so we have to be 100 per cent. West Ham have a lot of players of quality and they have had a very good start to the season, so we can expect a very difficult game.

Has Giroud left Arsenal in the lurch? 0

Posted on December 27, 2014 by admin

The Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud displayed his schoolboy side yesterday when he seemed to headbutt the QPR defender in yesterdays game, and his petulance has given Arsene Wenger one more player on the sidelines for the next three games along with the massive injury list that we already have to contend with.

Wenger admitted that the Frenchman had made a stupid mistake. “Giroud has apologised,” said the Arsenal manager. “It was a deserved red card. Madness is a big, strong word, but he didn’t kill him you know, he touched him and he should not have done it. He should have been in control. He knows he made a mistake and I know him well enough to think that he will not do it again.

Same old story for awful Arsenal 1

Posted on December 21, 2014 by admin

All of the recent problems that have dogged Arsenal were on show again today during the Premier League away clash with Liverpool. We still cannot beat the big teams, even though some good luck and some lax finishing from the home team gave us a great chance.

To be fair to Arsene Wenger and the players, our squad was once again ravaged by injury problems and we had right back at the centre of defence and no options other than Flamini and Chamberlain in central midfield. But they both played poorly and the same can be said of almosy everyone in an Arsenal shirt. Maybe Giroud, Cazorla and Szczesny can hold their heads up.

Benzema transfer to Arsenal BACK ON? 1

Posted on December 07, 2014 by admin

You would think that scoring 13 goals from just 20 games in the season so far was enough to make any striker secure in his position, but that is apparently not the case with the Arsenal transfer target Karim Benzema. So the player that has long been linked with the Gunners could soone be heading to north London, according to a Metro report.

The FRance international striker will probably not be available until the summer, but the news from Spain is that Carlo Ancelotti will be looking to sign a replacement at the end of this season, freeing Arsene Wenger to finally make his move in a transfer that is likely to cost around £30 million.

Arsenal starting XI to face`bogey team` Stoke City 0

Posted on December 06, 2014 by admin

Arsenal seem to be a much tougher bunch this season and that is sure to get a real test today with the trip to face a Stoke City that has become a bit of a bogey team in recent years as well as the Ramsey and Shawcross situation creating a lot of bad feeling between the two sets of players and the rival fans.

But after a slow start to the Premier League campaign from the Gunners, Arsene Wenger will not be content with a point and so will want his players to take the game to Stoke, while keeping our recent solidity and giving nothing away.

Giroud now desperate to play EVERY game for Arsenal 0

Posted on December 04, 2014 by Patrick

The French striker Olivier Giroud made his comeback from injury in Arsenal’s unlucky defeat to Manchester United, but he scored an excellent goal and looked very quickly like he was back to his best very quickly. He has now admitted that he told Arsene Wenger that he was now ready to regain his place as the Gunners Number One striker.

“I feel good,” Giroud said on “I told the boss I am ready to play every game, so he calmed me down a little bit and told me, ‘we need to preserve you a little bit.
