Why Arsenal legend is RIGHT about Wilshere and England

The Arsenal and England international star Jack Wilshere is very close to a comeback from his latest injury, (caused by a bad tackle by Man United´s Paddy McNair and NOT proof that he is injury prone). But even if he features against Liverpool on Saturday and in every other game until the end of the season, including a possible two FA cup games, the central midfielder will only have made 26 appearances this season.

Out of sorts Walcott heading out of Arsenal?

GOOD news for Arsenal is BAD news for Chile and France

THe second night of the round of games in the current international break is all done and dusted, with Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger happy and relieved that the various Gunners involved have come through unscathed. In fact, they were hardly used. Only David Ospina completed a game and he kept a clean sheet as Colombia put six past Bahrain.

Arsenal bemused as Liverpool get special England treatment!

Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger have never been very comfortable about our star players heading off on international duty at crucial points during the season and we have good reason. Many has been the time when we have lost a Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere or Abou Diaby to injury when the national coaches have not listened to the Arsenal boss and played our players a lot more than Wenger would have done himself.

Arsenal won’t stop Akpom playing for Nigeria

I saw great promise in Chuba Akpom when he played 20 minutes for Arsenal against Aston Villa a few weeks ago, and it seems that the Nigerian Football Federation have also noticed his ability and is keen for the 19 year-old to choose to play for his ancestral country.

Arsenal players looking forward to fiery clash against Scotland

There were four Arsenal players that started in the England win over Slovenia, but Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck are both expecting a much more competitive match against Scotland tomrrow, despite it being billed as a “friendly” match!
