Should Arsenal consider letting Serge Gnabry go on loan? 0

Posted on July 23, 2014 by admin

It is par for the course when you are a big club like Arsenal, fighting for the English Premier League, Champions League and two domestic cup competitions every season, that you need a big squad with lots of strength in depth. But there is a flipside to that as well.

With Arsene Wenger’s commitment to the Arsenal academy as well as the need to have a strong squad, you do get situations like the one with Carl Jenkinson in the last couple of years, when a promising player finds it tough to get the regular game time he needs to really push on and progress his football.

Arsenal striker warns rivals to worry about the wingers! 0

Posted on July 17, 2014 by admin

There is no doubt that Arsenal lacked pace at times last season. One of the main reasons for that was that we had to do without arguably the fastest top flight footballer on the planet, Theo Walcott, after the England international had two separate long spells on the sidelines.

Theo is still making his way back from the second of those, a cruciate ligament problem, but he is clearly keen to get back in action for Arsenal as soon as possible, as his interview on Arsenal.com reveals. And it looks like the Gunners’ rivals had better watch out, as Walcott is ready to make up for his frustration of last season, especially with the added pace and power that Arsenal’s newest signing Alexis Sanchez will bring to the team.

Wenger! Lack of goals cost Arsenal the title…Doh 0

Arsene Wenger is not having a go at Olivier Giroud, but he has compared the firepower of Arsenal to that of champions elect Manchester City and the team that could still beat them to the title, Liverpool, and found his team come up wanting.

I think he will find that every Arsenal fan on the planet could have told him that back in January. In fact I am surprised that he could sleep for all the crying out we were doing for the Frenchman to sign a striker in the winter window.

Wenger admits blame for Arsenal’s title failure 3

Arsenal were flying in the Premier League for the whole of last year, but Arsene Wenger blames our spectacular demise since Christmas on the injuries to our best players and his own mismanagement of Aaron Ramsey that led to our downfall.

When asked why it all went so wrong, Wenger said, “For two reasons. The important injuries we had and the big fixtures during that period.

“We didn’t manage to win the big games. If we had everybody on board we could have won it. We were 17 or 18 times top of the league during the season but we lost Walcott, [Jack] Wilshere, [Mesut] Ozil, Ramsey and [Laurent] Koscielny at an important part of the season.

Liverpool man defends Arsenal from Man United attack 1

Arsenal fans have witnessed their team fall from the promising heights of the top of the Premier League to borderline Champions League qualification, and whilst many, like Man United and England man Paul Scholes are quick to blame the club, manager and individuals, former Liverpool and internationally recognised manager Gerard Houllier thinks otherwise.

Houllier has instead taken the approach that Arsenal’s biggest problem has once again come down to injuries and that our title bid has suffered dramatically as a result. Ever since the start of the season, as you know, Arsenal have suffered major injuries at crucial times, with those of Ozil, Walcott, Chamberlain, Wilshere, Ramsey and even Podolski being out in times of need.

Wenger worried injuries will wreck another Arsenal season 0

Hooray!! Not only did Arsenal beat Spurs for the 3rd time in a season, they didn’t pick up any more injuries for a change. Arsenal should be used to being on the end of bad news when it comes to injuries because for some many years now we have suffered injury crises for what seemed to be nothing apart from a lack of luck. Nobody can quite put their finger on it why Arsenal get the most injuries, and lengthy time periods of unsustainable injuries too for that matter. But of course there must be an underlying problem and one that Wenger seems keen on addressing soon.

Will Ramsey return offset other injuries for Arsenal? 0

Posted on January 17, 2014 by admin

Whilst many may believe that things aren’t quite going Arsenal’s way on the injury front at the moment, after the recent news regarding Theo Walcott and jokingly a certain Julian Draxler, there are some positives coming from the treatment table and it is that Aaron Ramsey could return for the Gunners this weekend.

As mentioned, it’s not too long ago since Arsenal and England winger Theo Walcott was ruled out for a sorry six months, in an injury that has caused a lot of concern and sympathy to be put towards the player. Injuries to Bendtner, Ramsey, Gibbs, Monreal and Arteta just to name a few have also forced the Gunners into massive starting line-up changes, however the good news is that many of those are near a return to match fitness.

Why the future is really bright for Arsenal starlet 0

Serge Gnabry seems to be the latest teenager sensation hot off the production line at Arsenal as he heads for the first team opportunities. Gnabry, despite only recently turning 18 years old has already featured lots for the Gunners, in what has been a special season so far and he looks to continue to rack up the appearances in the near future at least.

Mainly because of injuries to the majority of Arsenal’s main wide men, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lukas Podolski, this season has allowed the young teenage German to progress from the reserves to the first team in a matter of weeks. Gnabry played two consecutive games in a row against Spurs and then Villa and he impressed equally on both occasions, with the media pundits especially pleased with his performances.

Could Eduardo really be set to re-sign for Arsenal? 0

If you’ve been an Arsenal fan for some time, I’m sure that you’ll remember the fan favourite that was Eduardo. The Croatian, born Brazilian, striker left the Gunners for Ukraine a few years back following on from an injury that he never quite recovered from. However all of a sudden there are reports that suggest that he could come back for a short stint of time.

Arsenal could be set to lose young star Gnabry 1

Posted on January 10, 2014 by admin

As Arsenal are supposedly upping their game on the search for a striker this January following the news that Theo Walcott will be ruled out for the rest of the Premier League campaign, few would have expected to hear that a possible outgoing player rumour was doing the rounds.

Arsenal and Germany under 19 international, Serge Gnabry has made a breakthrough into the Gunners first team this season, showing his full potential through a string of impressive performances more than once this season. But now Arsenal could be in for a battle to keep the youngster with German superclub Borussia Dortmund supposedly eyeing up a summer move for the 18 year old.
