Why Arsenal SHOULD NOT let Rosicky leave…

Tomas Rosicky has spoken openly about his wish to still play regularly and has admitted that he wants to talk to Arsene Wenger about letting him leave this summer, but an interview with the young Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom has highlighted the reasons why perhaps Wenger should hang on to the veteran midfielder.

BIG injury boost for Arsenal leaves Diaby alone on sidelines!!

There is more evidence today that Arsenal may have finally got to the root of the problem that has seen Arsene Wenger have to cope with a crippling injury list for most of the current season and the whole of our last campaign. It has been a problem which many believe has cost the Gunners a good chance of the Premier League title this year, but especially last time around when we were flying high up until the halfway point before losing the likes of Ramsey, Walcott and Ozil.

Coquelin Doing A Wonderful Job, But Do Arsenal STILL Need a New DM?

When Francis Coquelin was recalled from his loan spell at Charlton Athletic in December as result of the injury crisis in midfield, most Arsenal fans would not have been very pleased, especially considering that Wenger could have dipped into the January market to sign a new defensive midfielder. But three months on, the young Frenchman seems to be one of the first names on the team sheet.

Who is on their way out of Arsenal this summer?

It is becoming a yearly cliche that “Arsenal are three players away from winning the title” and that could probably easily be said again this summer, although if we hadn’t had any injuries this season we may have been a LOT closer to the top.

Arsenal set to lose ANOTHER captain?

To lose one club captain could be said to be careless, but the way that Arsenal have been getting through them in recent seasons could be seen as criminal carelessness. Cesc Fabregas had the armband for three seasons before forcing his way out of the club to join his boyhood team Barcelona and since then the armband has been like a hot potato.

Arsenal to seal Schneiderlin deal but Coquelin NOT at risk

After putting in a rare bad performance for Arsenal in the horrendous Champions League debacle against Monaco last week, there were inevitably questions raised again about Francis Coquelin. The French midfielder has been brilliant since his early recall from a loan spell at Charlton, but his years of failing to break through will keep the fans wondering whether his recent form is just a phase.

Arsenal’s PERFECT midfielder wants EPL move! So Wenger…?

I know that Arsenal fans have had our problems with La Liga’s Barcelona at times, sometimes on the pitch with our meetings in the Champions League and sometimes off the pitch as they have poached a few big players off us, especially when Arsene Wenger was working on a very tight budget and unable to fight off transfer interest in his best players. After getting Alexis Sanchez off them last summer, however, I feel a bit better about our relationship.

Coquelin to complete turnaround and become Arsenal captain?

I know that Arsenal already have a captain in Mikel Arteta and I hope to see the Spanish midfielder back on the pitch as soon as possible. And after recent reports suggest that Arsene Wenger had already signed him up to a contract extension, the 32-year old is likely to keep the armband for a little longer.
