Why Henry is WRONG on Arsenal, Giroud and BPL title hopes!

Thierry Henry is an Arsenal fans as well as being employed as a TV pundit by Sky Sports and the former Gunner makes no secret of the fact. So it was easy to see, and also to understand, his frustration that Arsenal and his former boss Arsene Wenger were once again left disappointed in their efforts to defeat Jose Mourinho and Chelsea.

Ozil SNUBBED by Arsenal stars past and present?

I may be reading a bit too much into the comments this week from the former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour and our current star Alexis Sanchez, but if I was Mesut Ozil I would be wondering just what I had done to deserve what seems to me like a lack of appreciation of the German international’s recent form and contribution to the cause.

“Every Arsenal footballer has amazing quality!”

Arsene Wenger may have failed to bring in a centre-back and defensive midfielder last summer, but it was surely a stroke of pure genius to bring Alexis Sanchez to Arsenal instead.

Arsenal to play Walcott with FA cup final in mind

With Jose Mourinho bringing his title chasing team to the Emirates for Arsenal´s next game, it does not take a genius to work out what tactics the negative one is going to employ.

But Alexis was not at his best and struggled for much of the game, while I thought Mesut Ozil was our best player and the only one who kept a cool head and kept the ball under severe pressure.

Reading v Arsenal – Gunners through by skin of teeth

Well the important thing is that Arsenal won the semi-final against Reading to book our place at the FA cup final at Wembley next month. But it is not the sort of game that was good for those Gooners of a nervous disposition, partly due to the indomitable desire and determination of our opponents and partly due to our own struggles to get into our groove.

Wenger admits he is impressed with Raheem Sterling

Arsenal have been linked with a summer move for Liverpool’s contract rebel Raheem Sterling for some time, and Wenger did not stop the rumours when he did NOT deny there would be a bid for the England international in the run up to the Liverpool match. Wenger said: “I do not want to speak about any move. We are not in a transfer period, we are in front of a big game.
