Come on Arsenal – We all want Bellerin!

Another Solution for Arsenal’s Defensive Problems by AT

As we all may have realised by now, the unfortunate injury to Laurent Koscielny has had a very significant impact on Arsenal’s season, not only because of the sheer quality of the French international defender but more so because of Arsenal’s lack of cover in that position. It is an issue so significant that the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has to play Nacho Monreal, who isn’t quite up to the mark in his more natural left-back position, as a centre-back in the heart of the Arsenal defence.

Forget history! Here is why Arsenal WILL beat Man United

Arsenal fans will hardly need reminding that our recent history against Manchester United is far from glorious. But just in case, our Arsenal loving friends over at the Daily Mail have kindly written an article reminding us that the Gunners have won just once against the old rivals from Old Trafford in the last 11 meetings.

But that should not really matter on Saturday, because the tide has turned for both clubs. What the report forgets to mention is that this dreadful run of results for Arsenal has come in the years when our financial shackles were really starting to chafe, while United were the most successful Premier League club.

Is Wenger being stubborn or cautious over Wilshere’s Arsenal role?

There is a strong belief among many Arsenal fans and people in the football media that Arsene Wenger can have a tendency to be stubborn. They will point at his refusal, transfer window after transfer window, to sign the players to strengthen the positions in the Arsenal squad that most people think we need.

And then there are his tactics, which rarely change, and his way of leaving the making of substitutions until it is so late in the game that the players coming on hardly have time to get used to the pace of the game, much less have an influence on it.

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.

Arsenal captain on how this season CAN be a success!

After he missed the last half hour of Arsenal’s last Champions League game against Anderlecht and then the away defeat by Swansea City in the Premier League, Mikel Arteta can be absolved from blame for the way the Gunners have thrown away two winning positions in a row.

But hopefully the club captain will be available again for the Gunners’ next game against Man United and he is well aware of how important it is for the players to get the fans back on side again. The Spanish midfielder is not the sort to blame his individual team mates and he has told Arsenal Player that he feels his job as captain is to keep the team morale as high as possible, even after a disappointing result or two.

Former Gunner backs Klopp to shine as new Arsenal boss!

There are plans, apparently, for some Arsenal fans to show their displeasure at the way the Gunners have struggled and stuttered at the start of the season, with the manager Arsene Wenger set to be the main subject of the fans’ anger.

Once again it looks like Arsenal are going to have to settle for a top four finish and place in the Champions League, and we need to improve in order to do that. So despite the Frenchman having signed a three year contract extension in the summer, the pressure on him to retire or move upstairs into an executive position will only increase if Arsenal continue to struggle in the Premier League.

Wales boss SLAMS Ramsey critics and so should Arsenal fans!!

How soon some people forget! One former Arsenal player, Charlie Nicholas, was among the fiercest critics of the Wales international midfielder Aaron Ramsey and his recent displays for the Gunners. Completely ignoring the fact that Ramsey has just returned from injury and that the whole Arsenal team played badly, the 23-year old was blamed for the way Arsenal drew and then lost against Anderlecht and then Swansea City after being in the lead.

Have these two loanees sealed their Arsenal future?

For a big club like Arsenal, with Champions League football to cope with every season as well as the Premier League and domestic cup competitions, a large squad is necessary but that does also mean that, quite often, the fringe and young players do not get the amount of time on the pitch that they need to improve their game and progress their football careers.

Unhappy at Arsenal? NO! Alexis loving EPL and Wenger!!

I think it must be just another example of the anti-Arsenal stance often adopted by the football media in England, where they love to knock anything Gunners related and especially love to have a go at our French manager Arsene Wenger.

So even though Man City, Liverpool and Man United are all doing just as badly as Arsenal and a lot worse if you consider how much more money they have spent, it seems to be Wenger who is always in the press, on the verge of being sacked and with players and staff supposedly disagreeing with every decision the Prof makes.

Time for Arsenal stars to stop using Twitter?

Social media is a part of the modern world now, with footballers using sites like Twitter just as much as anyone else, and why shouldn’t they? But we keep seeing problems cropping up, especially when clubs decide to host question and answer sessions with their players. You might as well just invite the fans of rival clubs to send in as much abuse as they can think of.

Wenger is a MASSIVE asset for Arsenal

Out come the pitchforks by Big Gun

First of all, I’d like to say I am shocked at the amount of verbal abuse being thrown around on this forum. We are all Arsenal supporters at end of the day with different opinions, that being said a certain amount of respect needs to be adhered to. Save it for the Spuds and Mancs please.

Arsenal fans need to calm down and think carefully….

In Defence of Wenger and the players…. by Alarcon

It is exceedingly obvious that Arsenal are not having a good season at all, languishing at 6th on the table when this season was supposed to be the one where Arsenal capitalised on the FA Cup win to steamroller on. As a result of the team’s under-performance, fans have been turning on Wenger and the players. However, I do feel that much of the criticism leveled at them is rather uncalled for.
