SHOCK Arsenal starting XI for Sunderland clash! 1

Posted on May 20, 2015 by admin

With Arsene Wenger having spoken about consistency and cohesion in the build up to this last but one game of the Premier League campaign, most people were not expecting many changes to the Arsenal team. And with the Frenchman having selected the same line up for the last six league games in a row, it could easily have been seven.

But a touch of flu for Laurent Koscielny means that Wenger is likely to start Gabriel and I do not think the changes will stop there. I am actually expecting Wenger to pull a bit of a surprise on Sunderland and their manager Dick Advocaat who will surely have prepared his team to nullify our passing and creative game.

Wenger says Arsenal will NOT sell to Man City 0

Posted on April 09, 2015 by admin

Arsenal fans have had more than enough of seeing the likes of Nasri, Clichy, Cole and van Persie being sold to Premier League rivals over the last 10 years, especially when all of them have gone on to help their respective sides to win the trophy that we have not lifted since 2004.

So it is good to hear that Arsene Wenger is as determined as the rest of us not to have to endure that sort of pain anymore. There have been Arsenal transfer rumours this week that Manchester City are hoping to sign Jack Wilshere as part of a big summer of rebuilding, but Wenger has told them not to bother, as reported by the Daily Mail.

Arsenal were linked with the transfer of the French international central midfielder Yohan Cabaye before he moved from Newcastle to the French champions PSG last year. And then the wealth of options in the centre available to Laurent Bland led to suggestions that their young star Adrien Rabiot might be heading to north London, either permanently or on loan.

But both of those players are now featuring more regularly for PSG and that along with their need to comply with the FFP rules means that they may be ready to sell their Italy international star Marco Verratti , according to a Metro report.

Arsene Wenger has seen the young terrier Jack Wilshere go down with another ankle injury, but the Arsenal boss is still hopeful that the England midfielder will have a long and successful career, despite Wilshere playing less than 100 games since he made his debut six years ago.

“We knew he would have surgery,” Wenger said. “He’s focused to come back and finish the season well.

“His injury is a consequence of a very bad tackle that was not malicious. He deals very well with tackles and kicks but nobody would’ve dealt with that tackle.

Even though Arsenal fans were maybe a little more confident than usual, we also know that Manchester United are always a tough team for us to beat and our form so far this season is hardly inspiring enough to give us much confidence.

And that was proved right as Arsenal somehow lost a game we dominated, once again. Even the United captain and scorer of their second goal on the break looked surprised that they had won as he gave his post match interview. And the stats certainly support him saying that they rode their luck.

Despite all the talk in the media about the Premier League clash between Arsenal and Manchester United having lost a lot of it’s glamour and importance in the last 10 years, the match at the Emirates stadium today is massive, there is no doubt about it, especially for both clubs.

To be honest, with Liverpool, Everton and Tottenham all struggling as well, there is a good chance that both clubs will finish in the top four, but whoever wins today will take a big step towards it and lay a big blow on their rivals. Arsenal could finish as high as fourth place if we win, while a loss could see us drop to as low as 12th place, so it is clear how important it is to win.

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.

65 Today? Time for Wenger to retire from Arsenal! 6

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.

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.
