MORE injury woe leaves Arsenal stretched to breaking point 0

Posted on December 05, 2014 by admin

Arsene Wenger should just about be able to muster up an Arsenal starting XI and a subs bench to take to the Britannia stadium to face one of our bogey clubs Stoke City tomorrow, but only just. The manager gave his latest injury update today, reported by Arsenal.com, and there is very little good news to report.

It is now 11 months since Theo Walcott injured his anterior cruciate ligament in the win over the Spuds and he is still not available to play. He is due to have an injection to solve the slight groin problem picked up on international duty with England. The boss is hoping to have him back next weekend.

Why Arsenal need to rest Alexis even against his wishes! 1

Posted on December 05, 2014 by admin

Alexis Sanchez has without a doubt been the star of the season for Arsenal so far this season. At times it seems as though the former Barcelona star is on a one man mission to drag the Gunners into the next round of the Champions League and to stay in contention at the top end of the Premier League table.

Just like Man City with Sergio Aguero, Arsenal would be many points worse off without the goals of our main man, but I think that makes it even more important for Arsene Wenger to give the Chile international a well earned rest. The problem is that Alexis wants to play every minute of every game and he is fit enough to do so.

Podolski to LEAVE! But will Arsenal replace him? 1

Posted on December 02, 2014 by admin

Lukas Podolski has clearly been getting more and more frustrated at Arsenal this season and you can hardly blame him. The German striker has hardly seen any action, starting just one game in the Capital One cup and getting the odd few minutes as a sub at the end of games.

Podolski has spoken about the situation a number of times but nothing has changed and so he knows that he needs to move on in order to get the regular game time needed to keep his international career with Germany alive. And now a Metro report has linked Podolski with a January transfer back to his former club Cologne and the 29-year old has done nothing to discourage the rumours with his latest words.

Arsenal star `Not Happy` and will soon call it a day! 0

Posted on November 11, 2014 by admin

There have been some vague rumours that Alexis Sanchez, our new summer signing and undoubtedly the star of the show for the Gunners so far this season, is a bit unhappy, but apart from the fact that Arsenal have not got the results that his excellent contribution has deserved, I can’t see what reason the Chile international would have to want to leave the club so soon.

But the same cannot be said of our German international striker Lukas Podolski. The forward has headed off to meet up with his international team mates once more without many minutes on the pitch under his belt, knowing that this will probably mean that Joachim Low is reluctant to start him, and it looks like Podolski is reaching the end of his tether.

Wilshere AND Ramsey to start for Arsenal in Swansea 0

Posted on November 09, 2014 by admin

Because of the injury through absence of the Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta and the well reported problems that the Gunners have had in the centre of midfield, including a slating from the TV pundits about our collapse on Tuesday night, Arsene Wenger knows that this is a key area for today’s Premier League away game against Swansea City.

And with the Welsh club being well known for their hard work and good possession of the ball, I expect the Arsenal boss to try to deal with this by playing both Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere in the centre. I also think he will play our most defensive midfielder Mathieu Flamini in front of the back four in a 4-1-4-1 formation.

Gunner reveals fitness worries over Arsenal star man Alexis 0

It is perhaps a bigger concern for Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger than it would be at most clubs, because of the crippling injury list that the club has had to cope with in recent years, including the way last season’s Premier League title challenge fell away when we lost the likes of Theo Walcott.

And the flying England forward who is just coming back from that long term injury has told Talksport that his new team mate Alexis Sanchez is giving his team mates and manager a little cause for concern about his own fitness.

Arsenal starting XI to face Burnley with Gibbs and Ramsey 0

Aaron Ramsey has not started a game for Arsenal since he returned to fitness after his latest injury problem. It looked like Arsene Wenger was trying to be every cautious in re-introducing the star player of last season back into the Gunners’ line up, but events this week have forced his hand.

With the manager having toild Arsenal.com that our England international midfielder Jack Wilshere is very unlikely to be able to start after he picked up a minor problem in training this week, the young Welshman is the natural choice to start instead.

Latest injury news means MORE problems for Arsenal 0

Posted on October 25, 2014 by admin

When will it ever end for Arsenal. It feels like somebody is punishing Arsene Wenger and the Gunners for something because every time it looks like we are coming out of the injury crisis then it rears up again. At this rate the club might as well set up a hospital at the Emirates.

The latest news sees two more players ruled out while the manager reveals that Theo Walcott is still not really ready for action. We may see the England international forward at some point in the away match at Sunderland, but certainly not from the start.

Why Arsenal WILL bounce back against Anderlecht 0

Posted on October 19, 2014 by admin

I think that one of the reasons for Arsenal’s lacklustre and strangely disjointed performance against Hull City at the Emirates yesterday was because we were not concentrating properly on the game. Arsene Wenger mentioned the lack of focus and I think he was right and that he was just as much to blame as the players.

We expected to win and already had one eye on the Champions League game against Anderlecht on Wednesday. And that came back to bite Arsenal on the bum, but the manager and players need to regroup now and make sure that at least we don’t make the mistake worse by failing to beat the Belgian champions, which I don’t think we will.

At least Arsenal’s injury situation is looking better! 1

Posted on October 18, 2014 by admin

There was not a lot of signs of improvement from the Arsenal players on the Emirates pitch against Hull yesterday, with a last gasp goal from Danny Welbeck only enough to rescue a point. Our bluntness in front of goal matched with our lapses at the back was typical of what we have been seeing from Arsenal so far this season.

But there is a strong argument that a lot of our troubles have come about because of the long injury list. Any team is going to miss players of the calibre of Walcott, Ramsey, Giroud, Koscielny and now Ozil, but if there was not much encouragement on the pitch yesterday, the situation off it is more promising.
