Can Arsenal really go all the way? Without the usual slip?

A strong start or a strong finish by TJ

In the last ten years, Arsenal have failed repeatedly in our quest and pursuit to once again become the champions of England. We have come close many times. We failed many times due to different reasons. Injuries have caused us a lot over the past few years. However, more often than not, we are being stopped by either a very weak start to the campaign or a very unsightly finish, causing us many times.

Arsenal Debate – Could Ramsey and Ozil could fire Arsenal to the title?

The best of Mesut Ozil could be on show this seasonb by SE

It is not uncommon for any player making the switch to the Premier League, especially at Arsenal, to not realize their full potential in their very first season – and Mesut Ozil is no odd case in this regard. The German, though, started off his Premier League venture with Arsenal, on a raucous note, which saw him score 2 goals and make 4 assists in his first 5 games for the Gunners. However, the 25-year old endured a tough time – towards the end of the season – and that lead to redundant skepticism on the ability of one of the star players, in all of world Football.

Where are Arsenal’s weaknesses? (Shush!…..)

The aspects that could determine how Arsenal fare this upcoming season by TJ

As a Football club, your past failings mean for very little once you step on to the pitch to kick start a brand new season that gives you yet another fair chance to rectify your past and set out for a new chapter in the club’s history. Arsenal and their unbridled supporters will be well aware of that. And, going by Arsene Wenger’s dealings in the Transfer Market, the desire to restore Arsenal to their vintage old days is well and truly palpable. However, their frailties have surfaced time and time again in recent campaigns, and it’s about time that they do something about it.

Could Jenkinson EVER be made first-choice for Arsenal?

Will Jenkinson ever start for Arsenal? by TJ

When Jenkinson played his first ever match wearing an Arsenal shirt, many were skeptical about his ability. He scored a freakish own goal against FC Koln as seen here ………..

Nevertheless, it is never accurate to judge a player just from one mistake. After all, great players always have moments that they are ashamed off. Henry’s handball against Ireland and Baggio’s penalty miss in the 1994 world cup are examples of great players having bad moments. Furthermore, it was just a preseason game for Jenkinson.

Should Arsenal send Gnabry out on loan?

Should Gnabry go out on loan? by TJ

Serge Gnabry has long been seen as a fantastic young talent part of the strong German contingent we have in the Arsenal setup at the moment. In the early stages of last season, Gnabry was often being deployed on the right in place of the injured Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain. He had relatively decent performances during that period of time, with the highlight being a goal scored against Swansea away from home.

Are Arsenal now officially the biggest club in England?

Are Arsenal the biggest club in England now? by TJ

The decline of the footballing standards of the premier league is becoming more and more prominent in recent years. In the past six editions of the champions league, there were only one English team that came out on top- the season where Chelsea beat Bayern Munich on penalties in the final. Another more obvious sign that the premier league is going down in the past few seasons would be many superstars prefer to play in Spain instead. From Bale to Luis Suarez, these players are seen as top class players that the premier league is unable to retain.

Arsenal Debate – Our best front line for this season?

Arsenal’s best front three? by TJ

Alexis Sanchez is a huge signing for the gunners. It is one that will not only be amazing on the pitch. Off the pitch, it gives both the Arsenal and the Arsenal faithful hope and belief. Belief that Arsenal are still one of the biggest clubs in the world, capable of attracting the biggest talents in the world. A world cup star has chosen to play for us over Barcelona, Juventus and Liverpool. That must certainly mean something to the club.

Arsenal’s best signing this summer!

Importance of the Arsenal’s fitness coach by TJ

With the signing of Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy, many Arsenal fans are extremely excited for the coming season, believing that Arsenal will make a legit challenge for the Premier League and Champions League title. However, one particular new addition is being ignored by many Arsenal fans. The signing of Shad Forsythe is an extremely essential to Arsenal, considering the huge number of injuries we have faced repeatedly over the past few seasons, and I consider him to be Wenger’s most important signing this summer.

Wenger should be applauded for keeping Arsenal afloat for 8 years

Arsene Wenger’s brilliance

A good and stable manager is often the hallmark of an amazing football club. Arsene Wenger is now the premier league’s longest serving manager with 16 years of managing Arsenal experience under his belt. Under his brilliant leadership, the gunners have created a high level of consistency season after season. Many often forget the brilliance of Arsene Wenger due to that nine year trophy drought that we suffered. However when the trophy drought ended, many were returning to stand by Arsene. This article shall be one to dedicate to our longest serving manager and how he has single handedly ensured that Arsenal remains one of the top clubs in the world, season after season.

Arsenal Debate – Is Sanchez going to be a striker or a winger?

Where does Alexis fit in? by TJ

The few hours leading to the Arsenal’s capture of Alexis Sanchez, there were butterflies in my stomach. I was very nervous to the build up to the official signing of Alexis, just like every Arsenal fan, furiously clicking on the refresh button to see if there were any updates. I did that towards the end of last season’s summer transfer window as well, that time for Mesut Ozil. When the Alexis Sanchez signing was completed, I was almost loss for words. For 35 million, Arsenal have picked up a man capable of playing anywhere up front. He can finish and has pace. Most importantly, he has a proven track record of both scoring and creating goals.

Should Sanogo be second-choice striker for Arsenal?

Yaya Sanogo deserving of a place in the Arsenal squad?

Signed on a free transfer by Arsenal in the summer after the 2012-2013 season, Yaya Sanogo was thought to be able to provide good enough cover for Olivier Giroud. Many Arsenal fans were unhappy with signing only Sanogo to back up Giroud. As expected, he did not aid the worn out Giroud much as he only playing fourteen times for the Gunners and did not manage to find the net at all.

Arsenal injury update on Sanogo and the Ox

Injuries and Arsenal are two words that been synonymous with each other in recent years. And last season reached a whole new level, with the Gunners losing more player days to injury than any other Premier League team. About twice as many as our big rivals, and there is no doubt that it affected Arsenal’s challenge for the Premier League title.

So Arsene Wenger will be desperate to avoid those problems this season. Arsenal have appointed a new fitness coach and a new medical expert, which hopefully will help us to keep our stars fit and ready for the fight. But we already have Theo Walcott out for the first month or so, and there were concerns when the youngsters Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Yaya Sanogo were left out of the tour to America last week.
