Why risk Ramsey when Arsenal have GREAT options?

There are some suggestions that Arsene Wenger could be set to include the Wales international star Aaron Ramsey in the Arsenal starting line up for the Premier League home game against Swansea City on Monday night, despite the fact that the midfielder picked up a hefty knock in our last game against Hull a few days ago that has kept him out of training all week.

Why Arsenal should NOT start Wilshere at Hull

As I said in an earlier post on this website and have said before, I am one of the Arsenal fans that has not lost patience with our England international midfielder Jack Wilshere. I still believe that the 23-year old has just been unlucky with his injury problems and believe that he could still turn out to be the player we thought he would be.

Mikel Arteta close to Arsenal return – but will he play?

Our captain and leader Mikel Arteta has not played for Arsenal since last November, but the 33 year-old has now revealed on Arsenal.com that he expects to rejoin the first team squad in the next “week or two”. Arteta’s contract runs out in June and he has already spoken of his desire to stay if he regains his full fitness and feels that he can contribute to the team, but obviously he needs his ankle to be completely healed first.

How injuries HELPED Arsenal this season

Injuries…yes please! By ThirdManJW

As we reach the end of the season, and take a moment of reflection…what has been the main positive?. Has it been the instant impact of Sanchez, the rebirth of Ozil, big game mentality?

Debuchy, Diaby and Wilshere ready to face Reading?

Arsene Wenger now has practically his whole Arsenal squad fit and ready (only Oxlade-Chamberlain is definitely out) ahead of this weekends FA Cup semifinal against Reading at Wembley, and it will be very interesting to see how many changes Le Prof makes for the game.

Diaby set for THIRD Arsenal game in over two years?

Many of us Arsenal fans thought we had seen the last of Abou Diaby in an Arsenal shirt as his contract is nearing an end and that one previous appearance this season, in the Capital One Cup defeat by Southampton in September, was followed by the latest in a ridiculously long string of injury problems.

Why Arsenal should NOT risk Koscielny at Burnley

You will not find many Arsenal fans who would disagree with the statement that the France international centre back Laurent Koscielny is the best defender in the GunnersĀ“ squad. And now that our BFG Per Mertesacker seems to have shaken off the dip in form affecting his performances before the international break, that central pairing looks very strong again for Arsenal, just as it did last season when we got so many clean sheets.

Wilshere and other Arsenal stars return, but who will play?

It is absolutely brilliant news for Arsenal that their treatment room has been emptied, and Jack Wilshere, Matthieu Debuchy, Abou Diaby, Serge Gnabry and Mikel Arteta all played in Arsenal’s Under 21 win over Stoke City reserves. Wilshere and Gnabry both played the whole game and Diaby even managed 70 minutes on the pitch, so their fitness can be taken on trust for now.
