BFG shows again why he’s now a GIANT figure at Arsenal

Arsenal are going to need leaders as well as top quality players this season. With injuries and a disrupted pre-season causing us difficulties at the start of the season, the Gunners are already playing catch up, but it is still early days and with players like Per Mertesacker in the squad, I am sure we will be alright.

Our Big Effin’ German turned 30 years old a couple of weeks ago, but Arsenal should still get plenty of service out of him at centre back, where age does not tend to cut a player’s career off quite as soon as other outfield players. But it is still a great boost for the club that Mertesacker has put the interests of club before country, despite the euphoria in Germany of their World Cup win in Brazil, as he told Arsenal Player.

Maybe Arsenal could profit by being OUT of the Champions League?

Wenger is here to stay but there IS hope…‏ by Drew

Hey Gooners? How are we going? Feeling sad, angry, frustrated, suicidal? Or maybe you just don’t know how to feel anymore huh? Well, don’t despair because there is HOPE for us fans after all!

Now I’ve become very fond of this site Just Arsenal, you get to read how other Gooners feel about what is happening within our beloved club, kind of like a support group for alcoholics! The only fault I have is that sometimes fans on here don’t realise that everyone has their own opinion about certain things like how the club is run or if Wenger is fit for the job…

Is Wilshere really back to his best for Arsenal?

Before he had even turned up for pre-season training with Arsenal this summer, Jack Wilshere was under pressure. From the media mainly, who seemed to want to lay a lot of the blame for another woeful display in a tournament from the England side at his feet, despite him hardly featuring for Roy Hodgson’s team in Brazil. Then we had the smoking pictures and everyone wanted a pop at our young midfielder.

Szczesny expects BIG things from Arsenal this season

One Arsenal player who is no mood to feel sorry for himself or his team mates after the away day defeat by Chelsea on Sunday is the Poland international keeper Wojciech Szczesny. The 24-year old may have had to pick the ball out of his net more often so far this season as in the last, but he is clearly not too worried.

As an Arsenal.com report reveals, Szczesny believes that the Gunners performed well at Stamford Bridge against a very strong Chelsea side. And to be beaten by two moments of magic, according to our number one, is no reason to be too hard on ourselves.

Fibbing Mourinho REALLY hoping for Arsenal’s invincibles feat!!

After Arsenal lost to Chelsea on Sunday, despite a much more spirited performance from us, it meant that the Blues had dropped just two points, in a tough away game at Man City, from their opening seven games in the Premier League season. It also prompted Jamie Redknapp, as reported by Metro, to suggest that this Chelsea side were looking like the famous Arsenal team of 2003/04, dubbed the invincibles because of the amazing feat of completing a season with out a single league defeat.

Six things Arsenal fans have learnt from the Chelsea defeat

Six Things I Learnt from the Chelsea Game by Uche

Looking back at Arsenal’s game against Chelsea yesterday, I must say that our performance wasn’t bad. Of course everybody has an opinion on this game from the positive to the negative but here are a few things that I would say I got out of this game.

1. We Have Improved:
Before, this Arsenal team did not put up a fight against teams like Chelsea, especially last season. In fact, the smaller teams even showed more fight than we did playing against Chelsea. But after last night’s performance, it is evident that we are bolder and better in every aspect. We went from losing 6-0 to losing 2-0 in a very tight game.

Arsenal will NEVER beat Chelsea with Wenger’s Tactics

Wenger’s tactically too far behind to help Arsenal forward! by Gooneristic Truth

I don’t have the statistics at hand to give you the exact numbers, but I’ve watched enough games to know that Arsenal don’t seem to be making any progress against top teams. In the post-Henry era, Arsenal just can’t seem to find their feet in big matches. In all seriousness, if we are to create a mini-league table of close games we’ve been involved in the past few years against big clubs both in Europe and domestically, we easily look like relegation material among the top clubs. We just don’t seem like we’ll ever hit the high notes anytime soon at the rate we are going.

A letter to Fabregas – and a plea to Arsenal fans!

Dear Cesc

On the day of a great London derby, I am writing this letter to a person who made me fall in love with a club of which he is no longer a part of. Even more perturbing he ended up playing for Arsenal’s biggest rivals. Yes I say it again it was disturbing, and yes as a Gooner and his fan, it took a hell lot of courage to take in that news (I am not embarrassed to say that I cried). I guess unlike me Sir Wenger never saw the dream of playing both Cesc and Ozil in the same team come true. All things apart I finally understood that it was your decision and you have the right to choose what is best for yourself.

Is Arsenal boss right with his subtle digs at Fabregas?

It is understandable that Arsene Wenger was disappointed to lose the Spanish international midfielder from his Arsenal team back in 2011, especially with the rumoured way that Cesc Fabregas left the Frenchman little choice but to sell his star player to La Liga club Barcelona.

But because it was a return to his former club and the one he supported as a buy, Wenger seemed to accept Fabregas’ decision and still kept in contact. And Fabregas always spoke well about his mentor and his time as an Arsenal player, often suggesting that we were the only other club he could see himself playing for.

Barton blasts spineless Arsenal and Wenger! Is he right?

Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal players are no strangers to criticism, especially in recent years, so we should not be surprised to see that the man who has an opinion on everything, but is also strangely unable to take any of it aimed in his direction, Joey `le muppet` Barton, has stuck his oar in on the day before the Gunners face another of those big away games that have been our undoing in the last few seasons.

A BBC report reveals that Barton, now playing for QPR again, has kindly offered his insight into why the Gunners struggle in these games and it does not make nice reading for Wenger and the players.

Arsenal fans should not get carried away with Galatasary result

Galatasaray result should not fool anyone by KM

Football is often about the last result and the next game. In Arsenal’s case the last result was a comfortable 4-1 win against Galatasaray and the next game is against the best team in the premier league so far – Chelsea.

We finally put in an expected performance against a side we are marginally better than. The new Henry with a hat-trick! Jokes aside, Danny Welbeck scored three good goals that highlighted something we’ve been missing for some time – a pacey and powerful striker who can shrug off a defender and burst forward.

Arsenal boss thinks Gibbs CAN emulate Cole’s success – Can he?

The current Arsenal left back Kieran Gibbs has a long way to go to achieve the same level of success as the former Gunner Ashley Cole and hopefully he will not decide to abandon the club that made him. From what Gibbs said this week about the debt he owes to Arsene Wenger suggests that is unlikely, at least.

And his manager has returned the favour, as an ESPN report reveals, by praising Gibbs and comparing him favourably to Cole, who has been an FA cup winner a record seven times. Wenger says that the 25-year old is now starting to show his true class after a few years of being disrupted by injuries. The Frenchman was also full of praise for his former defender, at least for his on field actions.
