Do Arsenal have NO CHOICE but to risk Ramsey at QPR?

I am sure that Arsene Wenger would have liked to be able to ease the Arsenal and Wales international star Aaron Ramsey back into the Gunners side, perhaps with a run out as a sub tomorrow night against QPR and then again at Old Trafford in the FA cup on Monday night.

Why Arsenal must put focus on DEFENCE against Everton

Of course with Arsenal playing at home in the Premier League today, the fans will want all three points. And the fact that it is an Everton side that has struggled in the league this season will only increase expectations.

Monaco openly expose Arsenal’s tactical weaknesses

It is one thing for Arsenal fans to think that Arsene Wenger’s team simply had a “bad day at the office”, but it is quite another when the opposition admit that they knew exactly how Arsenal would perform, and how easy it would be to counteract their game plan.

Only Santi Cazorla and Alexis Sanchez have played in more games than Per Mertesacker for Arsenal so far this season and only the Chilean super striker has started as many as our lanky German centre back. So I am not surprised that it was our BGF that made way for the debut of our January signing Gabriel Paulista against Boro in the FA cup on Sunday.

Arsenal debate – Gibbs v Monreal – Who to start?

Arsenal fans have been crying out for a stronger Arsenal squad as well as more quality in the first team for years and this season, despite the fact that Arsene Wenger has still been forced to deal with a constant and lengthy injury list, the Gunners do seem to be in a batter situation.
