Arsenal have NOT had a good season but will next time says star 1

Posted on May 07, 2014 by admin

There is a feeling going around Arsenal Football Club at the minute that we are one Wembley cup final away from completing a good season. Although the Gunners have finished in the same fourth place as last time, a win at Norwich on the final day will give us 79 points, which would have seen us finish second last year. And an FA cup to end the trophy drought will put a smile on every Gooner’s face.

But the Arsenal keeper is not content with this. Wojciech Szczesny was reported by Arsenal.com talking about this season and the regrets he has that Arsenal could not keep up the form that saw us in with the first realistic title challenge in years.

Cazorla return after international break a BIG boost for Arsenal 3

As Arsenal continue to stride through the Premier League despite not picking up all three points against West Brom this weekend just gone, all the talk remains of Arsenal sitting on top of the league and whether or not it will last.
Many have suggested that talk of the title for Arsenal already is plain ridiculous, with the likes of Wenger and Arteta already coming out to say that’s certainly a statement they agree with. And although I agree that many fans may be being a tad premature with claims, the expectation is certainly rising and I’m certainly beginning to believe that we will definitely be challenging this year.

Arsenal’s stance at the top of the table remained for yet another week, meaning we have now been on top of the table for the longest period since the 2004/05 season and things are looking very promising for the Gunners this year. The season may be only two months underway, but take into account that we have had an international break, as well as another one this weekend, and then a cup game in-between, so the Premier League season is still relatively early on for this campaign.

Arsenal have top four in their own hands 3

The Arsenal end of season juggernaut is rolling on, while Tottenham are stumbling again. The Gunners now have a game in hand on Spurs and can go above them in the Premier League table with a home win over relegation battling Norwich City next Saturday. Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players have done it before and are showing the confidence from that to suggest it will happen again.

Wenger expects a big response from Arsenal against Schalke in Champions League 0

Posted on October 24, 2012 by admin

Arsenal have a proud record in the champions league and Arsene Wenger expects his team to continue it tonight when the German side Schalke visit the Emirates. Wenger is confident that the Gunners will have no repeat of the hugely disappointing performance against Norwich.

“I expect us to respond in a strong way because this team is very ambitious.”

The last time Arsenal lost at home to a non-English club was 2003. They have only lost twice in 48 home games in the champions league, only once at the Emirates and not at all in the last 16 matches. A win for the Germans is as likely as winning the lottery jackpot!

Jack Wilshere won’t face Norwich tomorrow 3

Posted on October 19, 2012 by admin

Arsenal fans have been waiting 16 months to see Jack Wilshere return to some semblance of his former genius, and there were rumours that he could be returning to the bench against Norwich tomorrow after coming through the full 90 minutes against Chelsea reserves in midweek.

But Arsene Wenger has poured water on that idea and wants the England youngster to play some more time with the reserves before being risked in a proper competitive match. He said in todays press conference: “There are two aspects to the recovery,”

Wenger – Arsenal’s defence was horrendous! 4

Posted on May 07, 2012 by admin

Arsene Wenger was scathing in his attack on Arsenal’s defenders after conceding three goals against newly-promoted Norwich on Saturday. Although Arsenal had Thomas Vermaelen return this season after a year out through injury, and also the acquired Per Mertesacker in the summer, the defence has conceded a record 47 goals so far this season (a record during Wenger’s tenure).

It seems that Wenger has still not realised that you can’t always score more than your opponent if you don’t have a solid back line, or perhaps he seriously believed that our former frailties had been strengthened.

Can someone tell Vermaelen he’s a DEFENDER! 22

Posted on May 06, 2012 by admin

I know, I know, we all love a central defender who goes forward from time to time and aids the attack, and we love it when defenders like Chelsea’s David Luiz, or our own Thomas Vermaelen scores a goal from action or offers an assist, but look where that took Arsenal!

Was that Van Persie’s last 90 minutes at the Emirates? 14

Posted on May 05, 2012 by admin

Yet again Robin Van Persie has led from the front scoring two goals to put Arsenal back into a winning position against Norwich, and yet again the defence has let him down.

There rarely looked like there was any cohesion between Wojciech Szczesny and his defence, which was only compounded when Francis Coquelin replaced Bacary Sagna after half an hour.

I know attack is the best form of defence, especially when playing Sky Poker no deposit online, but when you are 3-2 up in a football match against a lowly team like Norwich with so much at stake, why didn’t Wenger put ten men behind the ball and crowd out the Arsenal defence and midfield.

Wenger uses 13 different cultures in a perfect anti-racism game 0

Posted on November 19, 2011 by admin

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger was vehement about the late racism problems around English football and declared that there should be a zero tolerance policy regarding this. The statement comes after the racism accusations and Sepp Blatter’s reaction to them.

“Once you go that way you accept everything, or you go to zero tolerance,” said Wenger.

“The players will always adapt. They know that when they are punished, when they do it, they will shut up. If you say at the start of the season you cannot talk to the referee but once a player abuses a referee and it is not punished, it is finished.
