Hello fellow Gooners. Hope everything is fine with you’ll (Besides the transfer speculation of course). After going through so many Arsenal transfer rumors, I am writing this article to deviate some attention on our offensive capabilities and more specifically on our Set Pieces and Penalty capabilities..
As you all know Man City & Liverpool were the standout scoring teams in the last edition of EPL. In order of goals scored, the top 5 teams were:
1.) Manchester City – 102 goals
2.) Liverpool – 101 goals
3.) Chelsea – 71 goals
4.) Arsenal – 68 goals
5.) Manchester United- 64 goals .......Read the full article here
I can understand Arsene Wenger’s thinking, especially as Arsenal players had been falling by the wayside like the bunnies on normal batteries in the Duracell advert all season long, but it seems fairly clear that the injury that the Welshman picked up on Boxing Day, was a result of him being over-played.
The Frenchman probably tried to get him back too soon as well, but if the manager can avoid doing the same thing next season, Rambo could well lead us to the title. After he won the Player of the Season award, Arsenal.com compiled some stats to show what an influence Ramsey had for us, and it is remarkable. .......Read the full article here
Mikel Arteta has just one year left of his current contract with Arsenal. I have seen some comments suggesting that it is time for the Spaniard to move on, while there have been reports of interest from Serie A club Fiorentina. Personally, I am hoping that Arsene Wenger, instead of selling him this year or letting his contract run out next summer, offers the Spaniard an extension, maybe another two years. Why? .......Read the full article here
If Arsenal beat Hull City at Wembley in 10 days time and lift the FA cup trophy, it will end a nine year wait for a major trophy since Patrick Vieira scored the winning penalty in 2005 against Man United with his last kick as an Arsenal player.
And it will give Arsenal a fine finish to a season that started with great promise, fell away in the middle and was heading for disaster before a late rally gave the fans hope for a better future. And that sequence has been the story of one Mesut Ozil as well. The club record signing has come back from his injury showing the same form that had Gooners purring and dreaming of glory. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal 1 v 0 West Bromwich Albion Match Report Infographic by allArsenal.com
Arsenal, securing fourth spot thanks to Everton’s loss on Saturday, claimed all three points in a relatively straight forward win over the Baggies. West Brom had some half-chances but the Gunners should have finished them off well and truly beyond the match winner provided by Olivier Giroud.
The Gunners had a slim chance to gain third should Chelsea lose after their game on Sunday afternoon. The Blues dropped points and essentially are out of the title race with a draw, however the vast gulf in goal difference between the two London sides means Chelsea must lose and Arsenal win by 17-18 odd goals on the final day. Maybe in some distant parallel universe eh… .......Read the full article here
And no, Arsenal fans, I am not talking about a different Henry, I am talking about Thierry the King. Amazingly enough, Giroud needs just one goal to equal the second season goal tally of the great Henry, and two to beat it. With four games left and Arsenal in good form, that is a serious possibility. And I am not talking about a different Giroud, I am talking about Olivier, the player that some fans love to hate. You know, the guy who could not hit a cow’s backside with a banjo. .......Read the full article here
Once again last night, Bacary Sagna showed why Arsenal fans are desperate for the France international to accept the contract offer that is on the table,. or for the Gunners to make him an offer that will persuade him to stay at the Emirates.
But judging from the recent statement made by Arsene Wenger, as well as the regular stories in the media, it looks like the FA cup final at Wembley on May 17th could be the last Arsenal game for our Mr. reliable. This week has seen the young Englishman Calum Chambers touted as a possibility. At 19-years old, however, the Southampton starlet has got none of the vast experience of Sagna, so it seems a bit unlikely to say the least. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal 3 v 0 Newcastle Match Report Infographic by allArsenal.com
Happy St Totteringham’s Day Gooners! For the 19th consecutive season Arsenal finish above rivals Spurs and can secure entry into next season’s Champions League qualification play-offs with a win next weekend.
Arsenal cruised to a relatively straight forward win over Newcastle with two second half goals from Laurent Koscielny and Mesut Ozil, before Olivier Giroud completed the 3-0 scoreline midway through the second half. .......Read the full article here
One of the best things about Arsenal’s draw with Man City last weekend, apart from stopping the rot and giving the team some confidence back, was seeing Santi Cazorla back to what we know he can do. This season the little Spaniard has been hampered with injuries and getting used to a new role in the team, but he put all that behind him to lead Arsenal to a performance that deserved more than a draw against the champions elect. .......Read the full article here

Arsenal cannot rely on their excellent home form to help in the FA cup, with the semi-final and final to be played at Wembley, but it is safe to say that it has helped the Gunners get there. The draws have not been easy, with Premier League sides in every round but one, but they have all been at the Emirates and it has really become a fortress for Arsenal this season. .......Read the full article here
Everyone has been describing Arsenal’s north London derby win at Tottenham as being un-Arsenal like, because the Gunners did not play with their usual flair and defended deep for most of the second half. They conveniently forget to mention that we had some good chances to score that second goal and that we were never in much danger apart from Szczesny’s mistake. .......Read the full article here
