Will FULLY fit Ramsey REALLY mean Arsenal do NOT miss Wilshere?

Although it has seemed at times this season that Arsenal just cannot catch a break, especially with the injury situation, sometimes things have gone right for the Gunners. And I think you can put the return to full match sharpness of Aaron Ramsey in that category.

The news about Jack Wilshere damaging his ankle ligaments and perhaps facing surgery and a three month lay off is a real blow for Arsenal, but it would have been much worse if we did not have the young Wales international to step in. But we really need the Ramsey of last season back again, not just for his goals but for his all round game.

The BIG changes Arsenal NEED to make in January

Arsenal’s season is already destroyed. by Frustrated Gooner

There have been more calls for Wenger’s head this season than ever before, and why not? This has been the worst start ever for the Gunners in a long time even by Wenger’s standards. Under Wenger this team seems to be not stagnating but decaying. His inaction to get a defensive midfielder and defenders is clearly showing results – much to the frustration of the fans. What’s worse is the division of Gooners over the team’s fate.

Arsenal told BIGGER bid needed for midfield star’s January transfer

That January transfer window, and the chance it offers Arsenal to redress the problems in the squad that have seen us fail to win the Champions League qualifying group, once again, and to sit languishing down in 8th place in the Premier League, with just four wins from 12 games so far.

So there will be a lot of work going on behind the scenes, even though the official action cannot begin until the window actually opens on the 1st of January. And a lot of that work at Arsenal will involve identifying and preparing bids for the right player to add steel to the centre of the Gunners midfield.

Koscielny more important than Wilshere for Arsenal v Dortmund?

I have been really impressed with Jack Wilshere this season, for Arsenal and the England national team. When it looked like the super talented teenager that burst onto the scene a few years ago was letting it slip and might never realise his potential, Wilshere has knuckled down and proved his critics wrong.

That has been great to see but also really important to the Arsenal cause this season, with Aaron Ramsey really struggling to get anywhere near the form that made him far and away our best player of last season. So the injury news reported by Sky Sports that Jack has sprained his ankle badly and will be out of action for a bit is not what we needed.

Arsenal to go 4-4-2 with Podolski and Welbeck?

I am not sure if Arsene Wenger is ready to take too many risks when he sets his Arsenal team up to face Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, but as usual the Frenchman’s tactical options are a little restricted because of the injury situation.

With the Gunners needing just a point, the manager may well decide to play it safe. Jurgen Klopp is probably thinking along the same lines with his own injury problems and with Dortmund sitting two places off the bottom of the Bundesliga and facing a tough trip to Hamburg at the weekend. So now could be a perfect time to surprise the Germans and go on the attack.

Arsenal are in FALSE position and DESERVE better!!

Arteta is right and Arsenal have been unlucky by Sam P

Both Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta have claimed that Arsenal have deserved a lot more than we have got for our efforts this season, highlighted by the way we dominated Manchester United more than we have in years and still got nothing, while they scored two goals before even having two shots on target.

So I thought I would have a quick look at the evidence and see if there was support for what Mikel Arteta said to Arsenal Player about the Gunners seeming to be punished for every little mistake and not getting rewarded for the things we have done well.

Has Arsenal chief set ball rolling to sack Wenger?

The co-owner of Arsenal, Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov, has not got a place on the board of Arsenal, even though he would dearly love one and is second only to Stan Kroenke in how much of the club he owns. So that means he has no direct control or say in the running of the club.

In reality, however, when someone like that who owns over 30 percent of a club has something to say about the running of it, people tend to listen. Usmanov has done that before, of course, criticising the lack of investment in players. But yesterday he turned his attention to Arsene Wenger for the first time, suggesting that it was the manager’s philosophy and transfer policy that was to blame for our struggles.

EIGHTEEN reasons why Wenger should change or resign from Arsenal

18 reasons why Wenger should change or resign by MB

It’s been 18 years of the Wenger Revolution at the Arsenal Football Club. I believe these 18 years has not only revolutionized football at the North London but the entire England. Wenger introduced a new system of football; an aesthetically pleasing style of play that contributed majorly to our dominance from 1998 to 2005.

The highest peak of this style of play was showcased in the 2003/2004 season, which highlighted an outstanding feature of that dominating team known as “The Invincibles” which possessed some quality players available to coach Arsene Wenger. In the core of that defense had players like Toure and Cambell, in the heart of the midfield Vierra and Gilberto and upfront legendary Bergkamp and clinical Henry.

Why Jurgen Klopp would be perfect for Arsenal

Why Jurgen Klopp would be perfect for Arsenal by RP.

Wenger has helped to install an exemplary youth development institution at Arsenal and although a large selection of the current ‘homegrown’ players may have been bought in, let’s be honest with each other, they was kids when bought. Arsenal are known for buying ‘kids’ and as such have some very exciting prospects developing in the likes of Dan Crawley and Gedion Zelalem, the future is not in question when you look at Arsenal.

Wenger has done good work with the youth and I will come back to this point a bit later on.

Arsenal get boost in Marco Reus chase and Podolski still wants out

There is a never-ending supply of Arsenal transfer rumours linking the Gunners with Borussia Dortmund’s Marcus Reus, despite the amount of quality midfielders already in Arsene Wenger’s squad. Reus has a contract with Dortmund until 2017, but a release clause of just 25 million euros means that there will be interest from most top Premier League clubs.

Wenger is reportedly a long term admirer of the 25 year-old and todays news that Chelsea will definitely not be standing in the way of any potential bid for the German international wll be welcomed by Arsenal fans. Jose Mourinho made it clear esterday when he said: “We don’t want Marco Reus, that market is closed to us and the player belongs to Borussia Dortmund,”

Does this photo spell disaster for Arsenal v Dortmund?

Arsenal fans will be hoping for a morale boosting win against Borussia Dortmund tomorrow, which would make us all feel a lot better as well as keeping alive our faint hopes of topping the Champions League group. But The fans and players and Arsene Wenger would happily settle for a share of the spoils as that would see us into the next round.

Easier said than done, however, especially when you look at the Gunners’ performances and results in the last three games. And when you remember how Jurgen Klopp’s team gave us a football lesson in Dortmund, it does start to look like a tough task.

Giroud injury STILL hurting Arsenal for Dortmund clash

It is just about typical really. Even when Arsenal get some good news on the injury front, and the early return of Olivier Giroud from his tibia damage was certainly good news, there is a sting in the tail, because the big Frenchman is not available to face Borussia Dortmund in the crucial Champions League clash at the Emirates on Wednesday night.

After Danny Welbeck remined us of his lack of finishing finesse against his former club and Giroud then scorched a late goal past the Man United keeper not long after coming on, I am sure that many Arsenal fans were goping to see the France international start against Jurgen Klopp’s side, but it is not to be.
