We’re barely into November and any remaining hopes of Arsenal jostling for the Premier League title are fading fast. The 3-1 defeat at the Etihad Stadium against Manchester City was hardly surprising, especially with Guardiola’s side ploughing through every rival they face, but the critics are still keen to dissect every decision that Arsene Wenger makes and every team performance that accompanies those decisions.

Should Petr Cech still be Arsenal’s Number One keeper?

In the world of soccer today, there is this general notion that older goalkeepers play better than the younger ones! There is this belief among all that the older the goalkeeper, the better! Is this always true? Don’t we have young keepers who have made names for themselves? Must older goalies always do well just because they are more experienced? Is Petr Cech the best goal keeper presently in Arsenal simply because he is old and experienced?

Where are Arsenal’s set-piece experts?

Free-kicks are very important in a game. It is an opportunity for a team to score a goal, great teams have at one time or the other, scored important goals from the free-kicks situation. World class players like Messi, Neymar, Ronaldo and others, score free-kicks to save their teams from the jaws of defeat! Why does Arsenal find it difficult to score free-kicks? Don’t we have good free-kick takers in our team?

Free-kicks are scored by creative players; a footballer, who is skillful and knows how to create the works of art on the field of play, should be able to score free-kicks at will! Do we have skillful players at Arsenal? Yes, we do…..

West Brom v Arsenal – What the stats said….


The Gunners were hammered a big blow at the Hawthorns as Arsenal were beaten 3-1 under the view of 24065 spectators. The host started brightly as they took the lead through Craig Dawson who found some room in Arsenal’s defence to head home from a resultant corner-kick in the 12th minutes of the game.

Is the Chelsea boss just being nice to Arsenal?

Chelsea may not be in the Champions league but their form this season has been awesome! They started this season on a wrong foot under the tutelage of their new Italian coach but as time went on, he discovered his winning formula and now, Chelsea are on their way to being premiership champions. Probably, if they had been in the Champions league, they would have done better than the rest of the English clubs without doubt.

Arsenal just need to win a couple of games?

It’s been a very challenging past month for the Gunners, with some truly shocking performances. Defeats against Chelsea and Liverpool were bad enough, yet to mix in the absolute embarrassment against Bayern Munich over two legs is just something that is unforgivable for Arsene Wenger. Big changes need to happen soon at the club, but one player, Nacho Monreal, believes a rise in form is just around the corner.

Monreal, who much like Arsenal, has been largely inconsistent this season. Often hailed as one of the best defenders in the league, Monreal has not given that impression off at all this season and has been very poor in comparison to previous campaigns.

Arsenal v Burnley – FIVE players to watch out for today

The host Gunners entertains the visiting side Burnley in the return fixture of the Barclays Premier League with so much to expect as the big guns minus the main rival (Chelsea at the top of the Premier League summit) like Liverpool, City and Tottenham Hotspur while United needed a late goal from their Veteran skipper Wayne Rooney to draw United back in the game which was cagey at Britannia Stadium (Stoke City).

If Arsenal score lots of goals from the start, we can beat Burnley!

Granit Xhaka has only been at Arsenal for six months, but his English has improved greatly. He has even very quickly learned how to say the common cliches that footballers need to say before and after games. But his utterings yesterday make for interesting reading.

His idea is that the best way to beat teams like Burnley is “to score as early as possible and as many times as possible.” This is definitely a great tactic for Arsenal to have against every team we play lol.

Is Merson right about Arsenal spending?

Paul Merson may be a former Arsenal player, but he’s never too far away from criticising the club in the media. Merson’s criticism of Arsenal today comes in regards to the transfer market, with the pundit now urging Arsene Wenger to spend some money!
There are various players that we all think could improve our current side, but one that most will agree on, is the need to have a real world class striker. We have found new light in Alexis Sanchez up front, but a real top quality striker, one that can win you the league with 25-30 goals a season is what we truly need.
Merson has gone for Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Greizmann to be Arsenal’s number one target, but is there really much hope of a move for the Frenchman? Merson said:

‘They pay top dollar those Arsenal fans. When you’re paying that kind of money you have to be watching world class footballers at the club. You can’t just have two – you should have five and six in my opinion.’
