Ozil happy and confident of BIG trophy success with Arsenal

It’s all gone quiet over there! All the Arsenal haters and fierce critics of Mesut Ozil have gone into their shells a bit since the start of this calendar year. As the Gunners put our early season struggles to one side and started to build momentum, the likes of Paul Scholes, Michael Owen and Adrian Durham have become more and more quiet and will soon have to find someone else to pick on if we carry on at this rate.

Why Arsenal fans should be HAPPY United beat Liverpool

I know that a lot of Arsenal fans were hoping for a draw in the local derby between Manchester United and Liverpool at Anfield yesterday. With both clubs appearing to ArsenalĀ“s biggest rivals for a top four finish, a draw would have meant that we had a decent gap of three points above United.

Reading set to face Arsenal in FA Cup – but they are NOT celebrating!

As much as Arsenal fans were hoping to get some revenge on Bradford in the FA Cup semi-final, we can’t really complain about having to face Championship strugglers Reading at Wembley instead. The Royals are currently 17th in England’s second tier but are only 10 points clear of the relegation zone.

Has Arsenal’s Ozil FINALLY shut his ‘LAZY’ critics up?

Once again last night in the FA cup quarter-final at Old Trafford, Mesut Ozil put in a real shift for Arsenal. It may have gone a little bit unnoticed in the fast and furious game, especially as a lot of the German’s work is done running off the ball, creating space and linking the play, but his display was yet another slap in the face for his critics.

What a Draw! Arsenal v Liverpool FA Cup Final looking good!

Arsenal are definitely now on course for a repeat of last years FA Cup win after the Gunners broke their nine-year jinx at Old Trafford last night, with Danny Welbeck scoring a fairy-tale winner against his old club. While we were all still celebrating that historic win, Arsenal fans were given another boost when the draw for the semi-finals were made and we were given the easiest route to the Final after being paired with either Bradford or Reading in the next stage of the competition.

History schmistory! Arsenal’s time is NOW says Wenger!

I am sure that everyone of an Arsenal persuasion is feeling pretty nervous right now, with an away game against Manchester United standing in the way of another trip to Wembley for the Gunners. It is not the awesome power of the side standing in our way that is the concern though, but the shocking record that Arsenal have against them, especially away from home.

Revved up Rooney could spell BIG trouble for Arsenal

Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players will already be well aware that the Manchester United and England captain is likely to be one of the biggest threats to us getting past the FA cup quarter-final at Old Trafford on Monday. But the striker could be even more fired up for this one than usual and that could be very bad news for the Gunners.

Wenger – Man United have an advantage over Arsenal

With both Arsenal and Man United as good as out of the title race, tomorrows FA Cup Quarter-Final gains even more importance as the loser will forfeit any chance of winning a trophy this season (although both are still in with a chance of the Wenger trophy ! ). Also both these teams have won the FA Cup a record 12 times and the winner will be two games away from becoming the outright leader, so the nervousness from both sets of fans is quite understandable as the game approaches.
