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

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

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.

Walcott NOT to be rushed back to Arsenal First XI 0

At last Theo Walcott is finally approaching full fitness and he managed to come through the first 45 minutes of the Gunners reserve match last night, but after so long on the sidelines he is not expecting to be rushed back into the first team.

He said after the game: “It was good, nice to get a little blow out, it’s a been a hard, long, nine months, and first I’ve got to say a massive thank you to all the Arsenal medical team because without them I wouldn’t have been able to do what I’ve done.

Walcott to play for Arsenal against Hull – and Gnabry back too 0

Posted on October 16, 2014 by Patrick

With all the injury problems that Arsenal have had to cope with already, just seven games into the Premier League season, it was a boost for anyone interested in the Gunners just to see Theo Walcott and Serge Gnabry back in full training this week. But it now looks as though we could be set for a much bigger boost.

According to a Metro the Arsenal boss is actually preparing to play the flying England forward on Saturday, when Steve Bruce brings his Hull City side to north London. They are sitting just one point and three places behind Arsenal in the EPL table.

At Last! Arsenal injury problems easing to give Wenger options 0

Posted on October 04, 2014 by admin

With an international break to follow after this weekend’s round of games in the Premier League, Arsenal have just one more game to get through before the squad starts to look more like it should and Arsene Wenger has almost a full complement of players to pick his Arsenal line-up from.

It’s a shame that our one game is away to Chelsea, though, because we could have done with the likes of Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey available for what could be our toughest game of the season. But these things happen and you have to deal with them. There is some good news for Wenger ahead of the trip to Stamford Bridge, with the news on Arsenal.com that our Spanish left back Nacho Monreal is fit again after his back problem.
