Ray Parlour sure Arsenal can only hope to challenge for Wenger Cup

The Arsenal legend Ray Parlour watched Arsenal only end up with yet another point on Saturday, and he is very sure that the best that the Gunners can hope for this season is the usual Wenger Cup for scraping into the Champions League, but he doesn’t even think that will be easy!

‘I think Arsenal are fighting for third or fourth place,’ Parlour was quoted as saying in the Mail. ‘You look at Manchester City and Chelsea and they’re in a different league compared to Arsenal.

Wenger was RIGHT to blame Ref for Arsenal draw!!

Arsenal were robbed again by Sam P

I am not saying that Arsenal were not disappointing against Hull City yesterday. We need to improve all over the pitch but I still think that Arsene Wenger was right when he pointed to the referee’s role in Hull’s first goal as a key point, probably the turning point in the game.

Up until then, the Gunners were totally dominant and although we only had one goal to show for our many chances, Hull had never looked like scoring. Mathieu Flamini was doing his job of covering the back four and was blatantly hauled back with both hands by Diame who then scored.

For the attention of Arsene Wenger – from an Arsenal Fan…

IS ARSENE WENGER DOING CORROSIVE DAMAGE TO HIS REPUTATION by TorontoArsenal

Despite the disappointing results of the past decade it appears fans of Arsenal FC, including myself, are powerless when it comes to being able to force through desperately needed changes because of Arsene Wenger’s entrenched position within the Arsenal FC hierarchy. I do not want to start listing the heartbreaks of the past years but would like to draw Arsene Wenger’s attention to the following:

1 For some reason your tactics, if any, have remained frozen in the past and you must act in the best interest of this club by moving up to the office and letting a younger and success hungry manager take over the club;

Arsenal v Hull Player Ratings

Arsenal 2 – 2 Hull City Player Ratings by KJ

Szczesny – 5
Didn’t have anything to do aside from pick the ball out of the net for the two times Hull scored.

Bellerin – 7
One of the only real positives out of today. He struggled at times but showed a lot of drive when we went down and was consistently making good tackles to win possession back.

Mertesacker – 4
He had an absolute shocker today and should’ve never been beaten for the second goal. He is the tallest player on the pitch and is well regarded for how good his positioning is, so to be beaten like that is embarrassing for him.

Why Marco Reus should be Arsenal’s next signing

The international break is almost over now and it was apparent how vital Özil is to Germany as they struggled massively against Poland and then the Republic of Ireland. But what was also apparent was how much they missed Marco Reus. The German was injured throughout the entire World Cup and it was fortunate that the team collectively managed to overcome that shortcoming as they went on to lift the greatest trophy in football. But now, his absence is clearly seen and it has been costing them and will continue to cost them. Why is that? It’s because he’s one of the best wide players in Europe.

Is THIS why Ozil wants to stay at Arsenal?

There has been a whole lot of talk in the meida about the Arsenal and Germany international star Mesut Ozil recently, or to be more precise, ever since he joined the Gunners from Real Madrid at the end of last summer’s transfer window. But the media have steadily produced more about the 25-year old over the last year.

The recent Arsenal transfer rumours suggested that his time as an Arsenal player could be almost up, with some reports claiming that Arsene Wenger had lost patience with the player he paid a club record £42.5 million for and who has yet to really deliver what was expected on the Premier League stage.

Arsenal should GRACIOUSLY kick Wenger upstairs…

Thoughts on Arsene Wenger and his transfers by Antonio Jackson Adebayo Cruise

With all due respect to Wenger, I, along with millions of Arsenal fans around the world, love him and respect everything he has achieved over the years. He is definitely a MANAGERIAL LIVING LEGEND, Nevertheless, I am afraid that we (including all the members of the board) are allowing this great man do destroy all the wonderful work he has done, by allowing him to continue managing the team when we can all see that he is sinking the ship.

Why Alexis is the perfect Arsenal role model for Oxlade-Chamberlain

I know that they are not exactly the same sort of player, but the Arsenal pair of Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain do have quite a bit in common and Arsene Wenger has played them both on the left and right flanks, even though the young Englishman is a midfielder while the Chile international is really a striker first and foremost.

And with the Ox still learning and improving his game, I think that there is no better role model he could have at Arsenal than Alexis. Chamberlain has talking to Arsenal Player about his Chilean team mate and about how blown away he has been by the 25-year old, especially about how a player with such talent still works harder on his game than anyone else.

Szczesny says Chambers transfer was MASSIVE for Arsenal

It is still impossible to say whether the new Arsenal and England international defender Calum Chambers is going to spend most of his playing career at right back or in the centre of defence, because the 19-year old has shown that he has the ability and the right attitude to both very well.

It seemed at first, for Arsenal at least, that Chambers was signed more for his skills in the centre of defence, with Wenger suggesting as much. But the injury to our France international Mathieu Debuchy has meant that the Gunners have needed him on the right.

Arsenal need to use Welbeck more productively from now on

Why are Arsenal struggling this season? by SE

Arsenal, with 10 competitive games into the season, looks like the team that isn’t going to come up with the goods any time soon. The FA Cup win from last May led us to speculate that we might see a resurgent Arsenal on show at the very beginning of this season but, on the evidences of their displays until now, Arsenal’s detractors (one amongst them, Jamie Carragher) have every right to feel vindicated once again. Far too many times, they lack imagination and fall prey to the internet trolls and disparaging comments.

Jack Wilshere should be copying a former Tottenham player!

Why Wilshere should mould his game around Modric, not Alonso. by KJ

Jack has just completed another game for England and was easily MOTM for anyone who watched it. He played the deepest midfielder and was pinging long balls all game to Rooney with good success. He should’ve easily ended up with 2-3 assists if Rooney was half decent. He mentioned in an interview recently that he’s modelling his game off Alonso and that’s great, but I think there’s someone who’d he benefit more from watching and that player is Luka Modric.

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.
