Arsenal fans need to be patient with Danny Welbeck

Not the time to jump into conclusions on Welbeck by SE

Arsenal’s opening champions league fixture could have been a lot different had their 16 million pound signing on the Transfer Deadline day, Danny Welbeck, been a bit clinical in front of goal and tucked away the chances that came his way. Danny’s detractors and skeptics would be having a feast of their ow, after seeing the Englishman fail to bury clear cut chances in his first two games for Arsenal but, logically, this is not the time to jump into conclusions whether Welbeck is the striker pertinent to Arsenal’s scheme of things. Read on.

Ozil out of form? Arsenal fans should think about Ramsey

There was a time when the mention of Aaron Ramsey’s name alone could crash a plane; his form was that bad. He lost the support of many fans in whose opinion he was, in the words of Piers Morgan, “a complete and utter liability”. Ramsey wasn’t actually a bad player, he was one of the best upcoming widely known lads in football. Everything just went wrong for him after that injury.

Has Wenger finally accepted that Arsenal need a new Vieira?

It has been of the most contentious issues for Arsenal fans in recent years. Well to be more exact, it seems as though all the Arsenal fans are in agreement and it has just been that Arsene Wenger did not seem to see things the same way about our lack of a proper defensive midfielder.

It is strange really, because when the Gunners were enjoying our most successful period, which culminated in the amazing and perhaps never to be matched achievement of winning the Premier League without losing a single game, it was with the combative midfield warrior Patrick Vieira at the heart of the side.

Why Arsenal are not winning? – Is it Wenger Or….

The curious case of Arsenal: a short analysis of Arsenal’s performances so far. By LmFaO.

Arsenal have been below average in terms of performance after the Community Shield.

Arsenal 2-1 Palace
Besiktas 0-0 Arsenal
Everton 2-2 Arsenal
Arsenal 1-0 Besiktas
Leicester 1-1 Arsenal

And now 2-2 against Man City at home.

The performances in all those games have not at all been up to Arsenal standard. So the question arises, who is to take blame for these poor performances? The players? Well yes, the players are somewhat at fault. But I think the person who is to blame for this is none other than Arsene Wenger. Why, you ask? Then let me explain.

Don’t panic! Arsenal CAN take plenty of positives!!

I know that some of us are naturally `glass half empty` people and others are `glass half full` types. And I also know that unless Arsenal win a football match, it is hard to look on the bright side, but I am still fairly surprised to see so many Gooners knocking the team, the manager and individual players after the draw with Man City.

Yes there were negatives, like the defending at the corner which left Demichelis the freedom of our penalty area to head the equaliser, the continued struggles of Mesut Ozil and the fact that a really in form and sharp striker would have scored Danny Welbeck’s early chance.

Danny Welbeck can fire Arsenal to the League title

Welbeck looking to be the main man for Arsenal as they hunt for the title by Robert Ford

In Basle on Monday night, new £16 million Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck displayed the talents that Arsene Wenger saw reason to pay such a substantial fee for. After leaving Manchester United on deadline day for the Gunners after many seasons of inconsistent form and a lack of regular first team football, the England forward will now be looking to eliminate any doubts in the mind of Arsenal fans whilst aiming to become the main man to spearhead their attack in the absence of new teammate Olivier Giroud.

New Arsenal system is made for Ozil says Walcott

Quite a few Arsenal fans and the majority of the footballing media seemed to be a bit underwhelmed, to say the least, about the impact made by the Gunners’ record signing Mesut Ozil in his debut season in the Premier League. I was not among them but I can see their point.

Others made the point that the German playmaker had very little to play with, hardly getting any time with Theo Walcott on the pitch and with Arsenal missing other key attacking options like Lukas Podolski, Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for large parts of the season.

Walcott tells Welbeck – Be more selfish and be an Arsenal goal hero!!

It was not that long ago that Arsenal under Arsene Wenger had forged a reputation of being a team full of foreigners, as the old guard of Gunners like Tony Adams, Ray Parlour and Ian Wright were replaced by the likes of Kolo Toure, Patrick Vieira and Thierry Henry.

But Wenger always said that he was all about the quality of the player first and foremost and that has certainly been backed up with a lot of his recent signings and the new look Arsenal squad. And that British core continues to expand at the Emirates, with Danny Welbeck and Calum Chambers joining Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere, Kieran Gibbs and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from the England international set up, not forgetting Carl Jenkinson out on loan.

Arsenal Debate – The verdict on Matthieu Debuchy so far?

Has Mathieu Debuchy lived up to expectations in Arsenal colours? by SE

The Frenchman’s 12-million pound move from Newcastle United this summer was an eagerly anticipated one, midst some skepticism whether he would be an able replacement for the long serving Bacary Sagna. After monitoring his performances for Arsenal, it’s only fair enough to analyze whether the former Newcastle man has lived up to expectations in Arsenal colours.

Arsenal’s Jack mashes former Spud and says he IS coming back to form!!

It seems that all the sniping and criticism that has been aimed at the Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere in recent times has not just been like water off a duck’s back. Wilshere has tried to keep it to himself and let the frustration show, but the recent comments from Jamie Redknapp seem to have been the last straw.

As revealed in a Daily Star report, the 22-year old feels that the recent comments by the former captain of Tottenham and current TV pundit were a cheap shot and, considering all the injury problems that Redknapp had in his career, a bit hypocritical and lacking in any real insight or professional respect.

Who will end up as Arsenal’s Signing-Of-The-Season?

Which new signing will make the biggest impact in Arsenal colours? by SE

With the transfer window closed, and the business completely shifting onto the pitch, we take a closer look at Arsenal’s five new acquisitions this English summer. Also, which new signing can turn it on for Arsenal this season?

Arsenal’s five new signings

David Ospina, being a goalkeeper, can be ignored; the Colombian has shown his credentials, while playing for his national side but, however, I doubt him displacing Szczesny as Arsenal’s No.1. Szczesny has been in scintillating form for a good couple of seasons now, and doesn’t look like dropping his guard.

Rosicky and Campbell should not be ignored by Arsenal

Arsenal: Two players who have been under-utilized by SE

The Gunners have it all to do, if they are to compete for more silverware this season, following the FA Cup win from last May. Wenger’s wizards, after pummeling Manchester City in the FA Community shield, haven’t had an enviable start to their campaign, which, so far, has seen them win two games from five competitive outings.

However, once the international break culminates, Arsenal have a fixture pileup to contend with, and it remains to be seen whether the North Londoners can manage the action-packed months ahead, without rotating their relatively big squad.
