Can an Arsenal Player win the PFA Player-of-Year award?

Can Santiago Cazorla win the PFA Player of the Year Award? By Twig

The last time an Arsenal player won the PFA player of the year award was since Robin van Persie which feels like it was very long ago. This season, the two Arsenal players who seem closest to this award are Alexis Sanchez and Santi Cazorla.

Arsenal fans should show more SUPPORT for the team

THE ARSENAL FAN’S MIND by JA

Hey guys hope y’all having a great week after what happened against Villa and are looking forward to great things against Tottenham.

So with things going well I just intend to talk about the disappointment I feel towards a whole lot of Arsenal fans, with the way they have a lack of faith in our players when things go wrong.

It’s Official – Arsenal are NOT a one-man team!

One-Man Team? What One-Man Team?! by Uche

Hello there folks. Still celebrating the Aston Villa assault? Of course you are you drunken Gunners! Boy what a win! Correct me if I am wrong but Arsenal have not scored five goals in a game in… like a century! We played that game like it was a training ground exercise and it could have end up being 9-0. And we did it all without Alexis Sanchez in the side.

Keown – Arsenal may still buy a DM as backup

Arsene Wenger has already suggested that Arsenal are unlikely to be doing any more transfer business today, but the Arsenal legend Martin Keown thinks that the Gunners could still be in the market for a defensive midfielder, but whoever comes in will have to be prepared to sit on the bench until Francis Coquelin is unavailable for whatever reason.

Keown said on the BBC Sport website: “Wenger might still feel that he needs to buy a new defensive midfielder before the window shuts on Monday.

“But, rather than filling a problem position, it would be as cover if Francis Coquelin gets injured, so he has someone else who can do his job.

Arsenal legend Keown backs Paulista to replace Mertesacker (I don’t!)

The arrival of the Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista will be an immediate boost to the Arsenal team, as the players he could replace will all have to up their game – to try and hang on to their starting places. Wenger put them on the alert straight away when he suggested that Paulista could even be in the squad for the Aston Villa game on Sunday. Wenger said: ” The only difference is that Gabriel is available and we’ll check him how he is physically but he should be alright to be available.”

Arsenal fans should appreciate Arsene more by Sam P

The section of the Arsenal fans that are fed up with Arsene Wenger and keep asking for the club to move on and get a new manager have gone a little bit quiet at the minute. They do make some good points and it will not take too much for the questions to come flying in again, but for now the manager appears to have a bit of leeway, even with the team still sitting outside the top four of the Premier League.

Phil Neville highlights anti-Arsenal media bias! Do we care?

\it is something that the Arsenal fans have become used to over the years and so I was not really surprised to hear the former Man United, Everton and England midfielder Phil Neville come out with his daft comments about Tomas Rosicky on last night’s Match of the Day. Not surprised but a bit saddened and I feel the need to pick him up on it.

Why Ozil bulking up IS GREAT news for Arsenal

Arsene Wenger is almost certain to put the name of the Arsenal and Germany star Mesut Ozil in his starting line-up to face the Championship club Brighton and Hove Albion tomorrow. The Frenchman is clearly keen to get the club record signing back into action and gaining match sharpness for the season ahead.

And this is not just because he wants to rest some of the other Arsenal players. A little bit of Wenger’s reputation is at stake as much as the German playmaker’s own. And it is clear that the Arsenal boss paid so much money for Ozil and backed him against his critics because he thought he could be a fantastic part of the Gunners team.

Is this really the BEST Arsenal attack ever?

The Arsenal and England international star Theo Walcott is finally back in the match day squads after a year on the sidelines with the anterior cruciate ligament injury he picked up in the FA cup win over the spuds last January. So he is understandably keen to get on to the pitch and start to score goals for the Gunners again.

And as he told Arsenal Player this week, Walcott is even more excited about rejoining the Arsenal attack because of the quality we have in that area now, with Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck having joined Giroud, the Ox, Cazorla, Ozil and all. In fact, the pacy forward feels that this could well be the best attacking line-up that Arsenal have ever had.

The Arsenal set-pieces were perfect, now for the counter-attacking

I must admit – I was one of the few who doubted our Arsenal squad and their ability to beat Man City. But I was wrong and I couldn’t be more delighted. The 16 corners we successfully defended. Man City’s meek 4 shots on target, 7 shots in total. A clean sheet against a team we once allowed to score 6 goals against us was a wonderful reversal. We defended and worked hard for the entire 90 minutes. The word “proud” is not enough to describe how I feel.

Why Alexis is HUGE for Arsenal even when off-colour

The game between Arsenal and Manchester City at the Etihad stadium was billed by the football media as being about a clash between two of the shining stars of the Premier League this season, Alexis Sanchez and Sergio Aguero. It did not really happen that way and it is fair to say that our new superstar did not have his best or most effective game.

On the face of it anyway, although it is a little harsh to expect the Chile international striker to win every game for us and he still put in plenty of work to keep the Man City defence and midfield busy. And as usual, Alexis defended from the front, but was not quite as remarkable because he was joined by all of his team mates.

Arsenal were a WHOLE TEAM of stars! Even Wenger….

Arsene came out with a plan for once, and it worked! by KM

So Arsenal gave me the best birthday gift you can have as an Arsenal fan with that marvelous 2-0 win away to Man City. Straight off to the positives with the number one being Arsene Wenger going out with an idea of how to beat city.

A performance Jose Mourinho would’ve been proud is something none of us expected really. Far too often have people (including myself) criticized Wenger for coming out trying to outplay good teams and getting ripped on the counter.
