Being fans of Arsenal Football Club over the last few years has often been a frustrating life, even though we have been luckier than most in having two FA cup trophy wins to celebrate and always making it into the elite European club competition which is the Champions League.
The frustration has been with the way Arsene Wenger and the club refuse to spend the money that everyone else seems to think is needed to transform us from a good team that plays attractive football and gets value for money into a team of true champions. ...........Read more
With no Arsenal games for the next few months, we can at least console ourselves by watching some of our best players performing at the Euro2016 tournament in France this summer. I have been looking around at some good bets to give us an interest in the competition while keeping an eye on the form of our Gunners. ...........Read more
Arsenal have six current players (I haven’t included Granit Xhaka) set to feature in this summers Euro16 tournament in France, but which one is most likely to bring back the trophy and the bragging rights to the Gunners dressing room?
We have Petr Cech appearing for the Czech Republic, and also the departed Tomas Rosicky. We also have (the nearly departed) Wojciech Szczesny in goal for Poland, but I think we can safely exclude them from the possible winners. If you do want to take a chance on them then Poland are around 50/1 and the Czechs are right out at 100/1 ...........Read more
The playing season is over for Arsenal, and it is time to prepare ourselves for the upcoming European Championships, but that doesn’t mean I will be putting my club shirt away for the summer.
Eight of our players have been selected for their respective countries provisional squads for Euro 2016, and I will be keeping a close eye on a number of them for different reasons.
Jack Wilshere is our only star set to grace the England side this summer, and while my priority will be for Jack to return from international duty injury-free, I will of course also be cheering on the Lions. I’m usually one to have a sentimental bet on our side to win the tournament, but the 9/1 (10.0) available is a little short for my liking. ...........Read more
With Arsenal having produced one of our most lacklustre performances of the season, and there have been a few, in March against Watford to blow the chance of a third FA cup trophy in a row, Arsene Wenger and the Gunners have just one game left to salvage some pride from a pretty poor and definitely disappointing campaign.
So the Frenchman will want Arsenal to put on a show against the visitors Aston Villa today and that means goals. But with Olivier Giroud still struggling for form and with Danny Welbeck having been struck with another heavy injury blow, who will provide the attacking cut and thrust for us? ...........Read more
The season is not over yet, and there is plenty of value to be had from our team before it comes to a close. Arsenal have had an upturn in form and confidence in recent weeks, coinciding with the emergence of Alex Iwobi in the first-team and the goalscoring return of Danny Welbeck.
Four of our five remaining games are against teams in the lower half of the table, and you could add their current league positions to total a whopping 65, proving just how strong our end of season should be. ...........Read more
The European Championships are right around the corner, and after an exciting week of international fixtures, we thought we’d look ahead to the upcoming competition.
A number of Arsenal fans are set to take each other on for their respective countries, and I’m big on having a sentimental bet, and will be looking for some value to be had from the tournament. ...........Read more
The first round of games in the current international break are now over and the Arsenal fans that have been nervously fearing some bad news over an injury to one of the Arsenal stars involved can now relax and enjoy their Easter Sunday and scoff some eggs.
The England win over Germany last night was the last of the first lot and saw two Arsenal players starting on either side. Mesut Ozil completed 90 minutes for Germany and claimed an assist for the opening goal scored by Toni Kroos. He must have thought it had set them on the path to victory when Gomez doubled the lead before halftime but England produced a spirited comeback to win it and Welbeck had a great game in the left forward position. ...........Read more
If the combination between the two Arsenal players Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil had carried on the way it had been going in the first half of the season, there is a very good chance that the Gunners would still be on course for three FA cup trophy wins in a row and we would not be sitting 11 points behind Leicester City and six behind Tottenham in the Premier League table.
I am not blaming Giroud entirely because you would have thought that our other forwards would have chipped in a lot more, but you cannot get away from the fact that the French forward’s goal drought has coincided with the team’s own troubles on the pitch. ...........Read more
Perhaps Arsene Wenger, his back room staff and the Arsenal board have been getting worried about losing some of our best players in the summer after the disappointing way we seem to have blown this season’s fantastic chance of winning the Premier League again. We never seem to be confident winners any more, and rarely feature in those betting tips from online-betting.me.uk any more, so it is obvious that the club need some improvements going into next season. ...........Read more
