Diaby on course to finally shine for Arsenal? 5

Posted on July 21, 2014 by admin

The last time that Abou Diaby was fit and able to make a decent contribution to the Arsenal cause, was nearly two years ago, at the start of the 2012-13 season. The Frenchman started all three of the Gunners opening games and bagged himself a Man of the Match award as we beat Liverpool at Anfield.

But therein lay part of the problem for Diaby and Arsenal, because the lack of options in midfield forced Arsene Wenger to rely too heavily on the Frenchman and that caused his injury problems to flare up again. The 28-year old’s luck then deserted him again with a cruciate ligament injury that kept him out for over a year, making his only appearance as a sub in the final Premier League game.

Arsenal boss calmly brushes off Mourinho’s baiting 3

Well done Arsene Wenger, for keeping calm and holding back from getting in to another war of words with Jose Mourinho. The Chelsea boss clearly sees Arsenal as one of his main rivals for the Premier League crown. He has even said as much himself.

The not very special one was worried about the threat from the Gunners last season as well, as the last minute veto of our loan deal for Demba Ba showed, and he must be even more wary now that Arsenal have signed two top quality players in Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy, with more soon to be on their way.

Why are Arsenal bending over backwards for England? 0

I could hardly believe what I was reading earlier today. It seemed like Im was getting an Arsenal injury update, but not from Arsene Wenger, it was from Roy Hodgson. Since when did the England manager have more say about what happens with Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain than his own club?

Don’t get me wrong, I am an England fan and would love for Wilshere and Chamberlain to be fit for international duty. And if they go and perform at the World Cup in Brazil, as long as they don’t get injured, it will be great news for the Gunners.

Wenger worried injuries will wreck another Arsenal season 0

Posted on March 17, 2014 by admin

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.

Is Arsenal star fooling himself about big games? 1

Posted on March 05, 2014 by admin

Jack Wilshere is renowned for showing passion for Arsenal Football Club on and off the pitch but this time around I think a few fans may start to question whether he is wise in everything he says.

Arsenal endured defeat to Stoke City at the weekend whilst Chelsea won, making the gap for first now four points away. The Gunners will slip further if Liverpool keep up their winning ways and Manchester City win their two games in hand, which is unfortunately a likely occurrence.

Arsenal’s Champions League dream returns tonight in a fixture that will hopefully rival Manchester City vs Barcelona for excitement but see the home side get a better result against one of the European giants. The Gunners will tonight welcome German super club and current holders of the Champions League trophy, Bayern Munich, to the Emirates for the first leg of the last 16 round.

Arsenal returned to winning ways in the Premier League last weekend by beating fellow Londoners Crystal Palace 2-0 at the Emirates. The win came after what had been a disappointing transfer window as well as an infuriating previous match, which saw the Gunners draw 2-2 with Southampton and drop temporarily into 2nd place.

Now Arsenal will be looking to make it two wins on the trot so our Premier League title push remains intact. Currently the Gunners sit two points ahead of Man City and Chelsea, but we probably have a harder run in to the end of the season than them and so anything could happen. Furthermore with Manchester City likely to continue the trend of running riot against lower opposition, it’s vital that we stick to grabbing all three points at every opportunity.

After a very hectic Christmas period, Arsenal are back to one game a week at the moment until we play Coventry at home in the FA Cup. This will have allowed all of our players to recuperate and they should be very fresh. It’s easy to forget that teams like Aston Villa, without CL football, are used to a week’s rest between almost all of their Premier league games whilst the Arsenal players aren’t. This should give us a slight advantage just from a fitness point of view.

After wins for both Manchester City and Manchester United, the pressure is on Arsenal to win at St. James’ Park to reclaim their position on top of the table. However, Newcastle are in scintillating form at the moment and will be extremely difficult to overcome.

Only a couple of months ago, Pardew was wanted out by the Newcastle faithful and yet he’s turned their fortunes around and made them a formidable team, especially at home. They are playing quick expansive football which is allowing players like Gouffran and Remy to flourish.
