PHEW! Ox and Walcott give worried Arsenal BIG injury boost!

Arsene Wenger has today given us the latest update on the Arsenal injury situation. And while we are still as threadbare as a 10 year old tea towel, there are a couple of very positive bits of news for the Gunners ahead of our first return to Anfield since that horrible 5-1 capitulation last season that sparked the beginning of the end to our hopes of winning the EPL title once again.

Why Ozil’s burning desire is GREAT news for Arsenal

The Arsenal and Germany international star Mesut Ozil has been out of action now for 10 weeks, ever since he heard that crack while the Gunners were playing Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and it turned out to be a much bigger problem than anyone first thought (surprise, surprise).

But the club record signing is now back in training and no matter what you think of how well Ozil has performed since signing from Real Madrid last summer, we could really have done with him in the last couple of months. The German had not really started the season well and seemed to be suffering from a World Cup hangover like Per Mertesacker, but he was starting to find his form again and an in form Ozil is a massive boost to any team.

Henry lived and breathed Arsenal – He MUST return some day

There will hardly ever be another Henry! by KM

A magnificent career has come to an end ladies and gentlemen! The one true King of Highbury and the Arsenal has retired. Words will never be enough to describe how much this man has contributed to Arsenals history and one of it’s most successful periods ever.

He scored so many goals, it’s hard to pick out just a few! I love the one where he chipped the ball and fired past Bartes. Ah the good times, when we were dominating United. We had players with character than. We had real leaders and we had players that you could always rely on when you are in trouble.

Why Alexis could be as vital to Arsenal as Henry!

The retirement of Thierry Henry from playing professional football has obviously got the Arsenal fans and the football media looking back on his fantastic career and discussing just how good he was. And whatever people think about his career as a whole or his status among Premier League and international greats, there is little doubt that he is right up there with the best Arsenal players ever.

OX on why Arsenal are set for STUNNING 2nd half of season!!

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has already had a pretty good season for Arsenal, on a personal level at least. The 21-year old has already played more Premier League games than last season and has missed just one of the Champions League games, also scoring in both competitions.

He may have had to move around the pitch, playing in central midfield as well as both flanks and in the forward line, but Chamberlain has done well in them all. He may not have had the chances, however, if it was not for the terrible run of injury problems that have forced Arsene Wenger to keep shuffling his Arsenal pack to somehow find a Gunners starting XI.

Giroud warns Arsenal not to take Monaco lightly

Why Arsenal Cannot Take Monaco Lightly! by AT

The majority of Arsenal fans will be very happy with the Champions League round of 16 draw after drawing AS Monaco and will also be quietly confident of the Gunners beating the Ligue 1 outfit to progress into the Quarter-Finals of Europe’s elite competition. While it is comparatively a much better draw considering we could have drawn Real Madrid or Bayern Munich like the past two seasons, the Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has reminded us that Monaco will not be pushovers.

Arsenal facing trouble after Liverpool’s league cup win?

Arsenal fans were hoping that the Championship leaders Bournemouth could do us a favour by giving our next Premier League opponents Liverpool a tough time and more misery in their Capital One cup match tonight. But it did not quuite work out that way at all and the Gunners now face a more confident and rejuvenated Liverpool team at Anfield on Sunday.

Blame Arsenal players NOT Wenger blasts OX! Is he right?

There have been many debates about the various problems Arsenal have had already this season and no doubt there will be many more. The Arsene Out Brigade and the Arsene Knows Best faction may never see eye to eye but when the team are struggling on the pitch, the debates are always more strenuous and heated.

The AOBs have recently had the upper hand because of the way the Gunners have stuttered so far in the Premier League as well as failing to win the Champions League group and suffering an early exit from the league cup. But a few good performances and results have swung the pendulum back to the AKBs a bit and now the Arsenal star midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has added his own voice to those Gooners that are fully behind the Prof.

Thierry Henry DOES want Arsenal return AND Wenger’s job!!

When the news broke about the former Arsenal and France international star Thierry Henry hanging up his football boots and joining the TV punditry team on Sky Sports, a lot of us took that to mean that he would not be coming back to the Gunners to work with Arsene Wenger in some capacity after all, as many of us had hoped.

But the 37-year old has moved quickly to allay our disappointment and declare that he does intend to get into the coaching and managerial side of the game he loves and has lit up as a player. And as an ESPN report reveals, Henry is hoping to do that in north London and I don’t mean at White Hart Lane.

Mesut Ozil SHOULD NOT replace Cazorla in the Arsenal First XI?

Why this Returning Arsenal Star Must Be Made to Work For His Place! by AT

According to the latest Arsenal team news, it seems as though the Gunners’ record signing Mesut Ozil will be back in the first-team picture following the trip to Anfield this weekend. The German international had damaged knee ligaments prior to the international break in October and seems likely to make a return earlier than expected.

This German defender is Arsenal’s perfect target for January

Are Arsenal on the Verge of a Move for Yet Another German WC Star? by AT

Over the past month or so, there have been several media reports linking the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger with a move for Schalke’s Benedikt Howedes once the transfer window opens in January. With the Gunners struggling defensively, it seems as though Wenger has once again turned towards the Bundesliga to bolster his side’s credentials, this time in defence.

Who is the defender transfer set to fix Arsenal?

It is coming Arsenal fans, and I am not talking about Christmas day, Hannukah or the winter solstice for you pagans out there. The event that is on some of our minds is the January transfer window. Last season it was a disaster, with an injured Kim Kallstrom on loan when we needed so much more.

This season will hopefully be a lot better, not that it would be difficult, and with an even harder injury hit season than last time the manager must agree. We were in a lot better position at this time a year ago and the Frenchman has already accepted that the defensive side of the Arsenal squad needs strengthening.
