65 Today? Time for Wenger to retire from Arsenal! 2

Posted on October 22, 2014 by Patrick

Happy birthday Arsene – NOT! Surely when you get to 65 years of age you don’t need all this stress and strain, you could be heading for a heart attack if you carry on like this. Arsenal were incredibly lucky to win tonight against a useless Anderlecht side that has only won once in their last 20 Champions League games.

Never mind Arsene. What about us poor Arsenal fans who have been left with our hearts in our mouths at the end of nearly every single game, starting with the last minute equaliser at the Emirates against Crystal Palace on the opening day of the season.

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.

Arsenal already looking past Hull to Anderlecht? 0

I hope that I am wrong about this but I get the feeling that Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players might be taking their eyes off the ball a little bit. Maybe it is because the Gunners did the double over tomorrow’s opponents Hull City in the Premier League last season, scoring five goals without reply, but it is a dangerous game to play.

Can Wilshere repeat England role for Arsenal? 0

Posted on October 13, 2014 by admin

When the Arsenal star Jack Wilshere was used in an experimental role as the deepest lying midfielder by the England coach Roy Hodgson during the last international breal, there were many eyebrows raised by Arsenal fans and people in the football media.

And the 22-year old struggled to certain extent in the unfamiliar position. But Hodgson obviously saw enough to suggest that Wilshere could do a job for his country there and he was rewarded handsomely for his faith in the young player. Wilshere was England’s best player in both of the games against San Marino and Estonia.

Arsenal to have FIVE starters for England v San Marino 0

Posted on October 09, 2014 by admin

The old line about there being no easy games in international football does not really hold for San Marino, who will turn up to face an England side full of Arsenal players at Wembley tonight with just a couple of goals in mind. The first will be to not lose TOO heavily and the second will be to somehow manage to score another goal.

And that is pretty unlikely, because the minnows have managed just international goals from their 123 games, while conceding a whopping 531. So it should be a nice easy night for the Arsenal players involved and there could well be as many as five Gunners featuring for Roy Hodgson at Wembley.

Ozil injury leaves Arsenal season at BIG risk from internationals 0

Posted on October 09, 2014 by admin

It was looking like this international break had come at a great time for Arsenal and that we would be in a much better position at the end of it, with some key players like Theo Walcott, Mikel Arteta and Serge Gnabry due to be available and Aaron Ramsey much closer.

And with the fact that Arsene Wenger and his coaching staff would finally have some time on the training ground to work with the rest of the squad, I was feeling pretty positive about the two week round of international games. But what a difference a day makes.

Arsenal starting line-up for Galatasaray in Champions League 0

Posted on October 01, 2014 by admin

Happy Arsenal anniversary to Arsene Wenger, who started his job as manager of the Gunners 18 years ago today. The Frenchman will only enjoy his special day, however, if the Arsenal team he selects to face the Turkish club Galatasaray are able to come away with all three points.

And their manager Cesare Prandelli has vowed to make that task as difficult as possible and send his team out to harry and chase their Arsenal counterparts as he clearly sees that as the way to disrupt us from our fluent passing game.

Arsenal starting XI for Aston Villa with Bellerin and Flamini 0

Posted on September 20, 2014 by admin

Arsene Wenger must have been caught in at least two minds as he prepared his Arsenal team to face Aston Villa in a crucial Premier League today.

On the one hand, Wenger will have wanted to make the most of the abundance of attacking talent available to him, knowing that an away win and all three points would restore self belief to the players and go a long way to pacifying the growing anger and frustration among the Arsenal fans.

Coquelin in Arsenal XI to do over Dortmund again!! 5

Posted on September 16, 2014 by admin

I was one of the Arsenal fans who were surprised to see that Arsene Wenger did not either find a permanent buyer or another long term loan deal for Francis Coquelin this summer. After his loan spell at the German club Freiburg did not really go as hoped, the 23-year old Frenchman seemed to have had his last chance with Arsenal.

But Wenger kept hold of him and so I assume that he might still be in the plans of the Gunners boss. And his versatility could be a major reason for that and could see him start his first senior game of the season away to Borussia Dortmund.

With Ramsey and Ozil doubts, what’s Arsenal XI for Man City? 0

Posted on September 10, 2014 by admin

In some ways it has been a typical international break for Arsenal, with two of our best players coming back from their various countries carrying injuries that could harm the Gunners’ chances. It could be worse, because neither Mesut Ozil or Aaron Ramsey are thought to have long term problems.

But with all the problems Arsene Wenger had to cope with on the injury front last season, I expect the Frenchman to be cautious and so would not be surprised to see the German and the Welshman miss the home game against Man City on Saturday. In which case, what will be the Arsenal starting XI to face the champions?
