Why Arsenal fans should NOT give up on EPL title yet!!

Yes I know that Arsenal have not exactly looked like title winners so far this season. And even when we have had a bit of luck or put a few results together, the hoped for momentum has been lost soon after. But although it looks like Jose Mourinho and his Chelsea team, currently 11 points ahead of Arsenal, have got one hand on the Premier League trophy, it is not over yet.

Can Alexis make it 7 in a row for Arsenal v Man United?

Alexis Sanchez was the last Arsenal player in action during this current international break. And although the former Barcelona forward could not inspire his Chile international team mates to a victory over Uruguay in Santiago, he did score another goal.

That makes it six games in a row for club and country that Alexis has found the back of the net. With his doubles against Sunderland and Burnley, the 25-year old has bagged eight goals in those six games and for a player that does not even play as the main central striker, it just shows you how good Alexis is and the fantastic form he has found since swapping La Liga for the English Premier League.

Can Wenger and Ozil make Arsenal GREAT again?

Despite rumours to the contrary, the Arsenal boss is still fully behind his club record signing and Mesut Ozil is confident that with the Frenchman’s help and belief, he will prove to be a fantastic signing for the Gunners. But while it is clearly good news that Wenger and Ozil are pulling in the same direction, is that the route back to the top for Arsenal?

The boss revealed the other day, in a report by The Mirror, that his playmaker would not be back in action until the new year but he also defended the German from his critics, putting the blame for the start of this season on an injury picked up with the national team and declaring that Arsenal will soon see the best of him.

Why Modric injury could HELP Arsenal complete January transfer

It looked like bad news for Arsenal when the reports came in this week that the Real Madrid and Croatia international midfielder Luka Modric had picked up an injury while on international duty. But now it seems as though it could actually help Arsenal to complete the transfer to solve the long running defensive midfield issue at the club.

At first look, the Modric injury that will keep him on the sidelines seemed to be the final nail in the coffin of our chances of signing Sami Khedira in the January transfer window, because it opened up the opportunity for the German to play regularly, while Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti would be reluctant to let him leave.

Arsenal can have NO excuses against a weak Man United team

No Excuses! A must-win game against a weak Man United side by KM

Four years ago I made my only trip to London so far, with a promise that when I return it’ll be to see the mighty Arsenal play, and so it comes this Saturday I will be at the Emirates to see Arsenal play Manchester United in what used to be the Premier Leagues best match.

Now things have changed and Arsenal and United struggle to find their former selves, but as it stands Arsenal is in a better position than United. The pressure is on LVG to deliver after that whooping spending he did in the summer.

Arsenal Debate – Should we use Wilshere in his England role?

Should Wilshere be Playing a Deeper Midfield Role for Arsenal As Well? by AT

Undoubtedly, the biggest relief Arsenal can take from the latest international break is the fact that there are no new injury concerns to address. In addition to that relief, there was also the sheer joy of watching the Gunners’ English contingent shine so bright for Roy Hodgson’s side against Scotland. Kieran Gibbs, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Danny Welbeck all put in good performances, but the pick of the lot was Jack Wilshere, playing in a much deeper role.

Wenger is a GREAT Arsenal manager… but a USELESS coach!

Why Arsenal can’t Move Forward?….. Wenger. by PA

First off, Arsene Wenger has done some good for the Arsenal. His coming revolutionised every aspect of the club from training regimes and player diets to the pitch. He created a style of play that was a joy to watch, both for fans and neutrals, and that Arsenal is now identified with, and he oversaw our move to a bigger stadium while getting us to the champions league year after year. This is no mean feat.

Why Arsenal should Free Joel Campbell!

Why Joel Campbell Should Be Given More Opportunities at Arsenal by AT

There has been a lot of talk recently in regards to the future of the Arsenal forward Joel Campbell, who has found first-team opportunities hard to come by following his return to the Emirates after three successful loan spells at Lorient, Real Betis and most recently, Olympiakos.

While the Costa Rican international has played down the rumors of any potential exit from the club, it has to be admitted that the player will consider his options should first-team opportunities continue to be limited. Let’s face it, he’s already had three different spells away from the club and can’t seem to break in to the side despite some very good cameo performances when given the opportunity.

Time for Arsenal to wave goodbye to Abou Diaby?

Is Wenger Right to Still Have Faith in Diaby to Come Good for Arsenal? by AT

The Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has once again come out in support of the perennially injured Gunners’ midfielder Abou Diaby, who is said to be finally approaching full fitness after yet another one of his long spells on the sidelines. The Frenchman has made just 22 appearances in the last four seasons.

But with his contract set to expire at the end of the current campaign, Arsene Wenger has not only come out in support of his compatriot but has also claimed that he will be given a new contract at the Emirates, should the now 28-year-old prove his fitness.

Arsenal can and MUST heap misery on crisis hit Man United

There has probably not been a better time for Arsenal to be heading into a match against Manchester United and needing a positive result, because as much as Arsenal may have a few key players on the injury list and are struggling for form and consistency, we are in a much better position than our next opponents.

The only thing Man United have going for them ahead of their trip to the Emirates is that they managed to scrape a win against Crystal Palace in their last Premier League game. But their injury list continues to grow and put Louis van Gaal under serious pressure, as the graphic below reveals.

Sanogo double gives Arsenal awesome attacking options!

Even though he may not have played all that much football for Arsenal so far this season, mainly due to the excellent form and understanding showed by Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck, Yaya Sanogo has clearly not been wasting his time. The young French striker has obviously been working hard with his Arsenal team mates and learning the art of being a centre forward.

And the France under 21 team has felt the benefits of that work. In both of their games during this international break, the Arsenal forward has captained the team and played the whole 90 minutes. And last night his efforts were rewarded with two more goals, taken in typical goal poachers style, to take his tally to five in just nine games for the under 21s.

Ox scores as Arsenal stars shine again for England

With Arsenal now having turned from a team of mainly foreign players to being built around a strong core of young British players, the Gunners now find themselves in the strange position of being the main provider of players for the England national team.

And the young Gunners are doing very well for Roy Hodgson. Once again our players were a key part of England winning their friendly match against Scotland at Celtic Park and ending the year on a real high after the disappointment of the World Cup. Maybe England would have fared much better in Brazil if the likes of Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had been fit.
