Wenger pleased with the improvement of Giroud, Bellerin and Akpom

Arsene Wenger was understandably pleased with Arsenal’s 5-0 win over Aston Villa, but he singled out the improvement of Olivier Giroud and Hector Bellerin in recent times, and was very happy with Chuba Akpom on just his second appearance for the Gunners first team.

Giroud has been outstanding since his return from injury and has conributed five goals in his last six games which has coincided with Arsenal’s overal improvement. “He’s much more focused, technically he has improved, his feet have improved, his movement has improved and he has a big presence in the game,” Wenger told Arsenal Player. “It’s no coincidence that when he comes back, you feel strong.

Giroud – The Arsenal PLAYERS may lack commitment – But DO NOT blame Wenger!

There have been hundreds of posts on JustArsenal from AKBs and AOBs regularly this season, but it seems that the Arsenal players are totally 100% behind Le Boss. Yes we know that the squad has been severely depleted by injuries but Olivier Giroud (who was one of those that have missed a good part of the season) says that there has been nothing wrong with the attitude of Wenger, but does believe that the commitment of the players could have been questioned at times.

It is Wenger’s fault that Arsenal fans are fighting

So the Arsenal manager felt the love of the fans once more on the way home from that Stoke City miserable defeat. 3-0 down at half time is bad for whichever Premier league side you are, not just Arsenal. Arsene got exactly what he deserved!

It is because he is ignoring everyone that this happens. “We have to keep believing in what we do” said the old frenchman after our United defeat and we keep repeating the same mistakes. This is Arsenes final decline. Every defensive display and every missed chance by Giroud and Welbeck will be another nail in his coffin.

Can Arsenal really catch Chelsea? Wenger says YES!

When Arsenal meekly lost to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend, most Gooners became resigned to fighting out for fourth place in the League again come the end of the season, but Arsene Wenger believes that our title challenge is far from over.

“Chelsea will also have a difficult period in the season.”Wenger said.”Our schedule was extremely difficult and I have the belief that we can close the gap to them.”

Wenger – Arsenal can make history against Chelsea

Arsene Wenger is well aware that he has not beaten Jose Mourinho as Chelsea boss in eleven games with Arsenal, but he believes that he now has a team capable of shocking the League leaders at Stamford Bridge. Last season’s corresponding fixture ended in a 6-0 rout over the Gunners, but Wenger is only looking forward. Wenger told “If football was just a repeat of the past then you wouldn’t play at all because it would be too predictable,”

Should Wenger have left Arsenal in 2006?

Would Arsenal have been better off if Wenger had quit in 2006? by Paul

Undoubtedly a new era had besmirched Arsenal come 2006 as the curtain finally came down on Highbury. However was this change of ground the only necessary change needed for the Arsenal? The club and more importantly the fans now had a mounting appetite for success which would go starved over the next seven years.

Wenger should be applauded for keeping Arsenal afloat for 8 years

A lot has gone on, after that crushing defeat to Aston Villa on the opening day last season, for Wenger and the Arsenal faithful. From receiving criticism for his inactivity in the transfer market last English summer to nearly winning the Premier League, and finally ending the 9-year trophy drought by winning the FA Cup, Arsene Wenger ended the tempestuous 2013/14 campaign on a high.

Wenger – I am staying at Arsenal

The record breaking 1000 game manager Arsene Wenger has decided to end speculation about whether he will be signing yet another extension to his Arsenal contract or not.

He is quoted in the Daily Mirror as telling a TV interviewer that that there is no doubt he will continue at the Emirates. Here is an extract from the article:

The interviewer asked: Will you stay or will you go at the end of the season?

The Frenchman, who has been the Gunners’ manager since 1996, replied: “Look, I’ve said that many times already, I’ve given my word to this club and I want to continue where I am.”

I must say that what I find most hard to believe is that Arsenal fans were actually optimistic for a good result against Chelsea. I guess that’s what being a football fan is all about sometimes… Optimism! I remember telling a friend after the Liverpool beating that we should anticipate one or two more of such disastrous results before the end of the season. Not that I wish my team bad, but I am a believer of living within the confines of reality.

The Mirror has a page dedicated to Wenger where you can read the different tributes nad analysis of his Arsenal career.

999 is not an emergency number for Arsenal boss

Around about this stage of last season, Arsene Wenger was under more pressure than he had ever been since taking over the reins at Arsenal Football Club back on October 1st 1996. But that all seems long ago as the Frenchman affectionately known as Le Prof approaches the massive milestone of his 1000th game as the Arsenal manager.

Even though the Gunners title challenge has fallen away a bit in the last couple of months, this season has seen a rejuvenation of Arsenal’s ability to compete and that has put a real smile back on the faces of the fans. Things are looking good for Wenger and his players to get their hands on a trophy again and the future is looking bright with money rolling in and the Emirates stadium debt almost gone.
