Why Arsenal fans should NOT give up on EPL title yet!!

Yes I know that Arsenal have not exactly looked like title winners so far this season. And even when we have had a bit of luck or put a few results together, the hoped for momentum has been lost soon after. But although it looks like Jose Mourinho and his Chelsea team, currently 11 points ahead of Arsenal, have got one hand on the Premier League trophy, it is not over yet.

Arsenal set to sign Premier League giant?

Now I know that we are going through a boring international beak, but the latest Arsenal transfer rumour seems like a desperate attempt to fill the back pages of the tabloids.

The Express are reporting that the Gunners are going to bring in the brilliant Petr Cech from Chelsea in January, and the only basis I can see for them to suggest this is because Thibault Courtois said that IF he was Cech he would leave Chelsea to play first team football.

Arsenal should go in for wantaway £19m Real Madrid defender?

If the reports coming out of Spain are true, then Arsenal should already be on the phone to Real Madrid and Arsene Wenger should be ringing up silent Stan Kroenke and Ivan Gazidis to get them to release a bit more money for the January transfer business.

And it is not as if £19 million is all that much anyway, especially when it is for a player like the France international centre back Rafael Varane. But that is what Real Madrid are looking for in order to release the talented young defender, according to a Daily Express report.

What Arsenal can expect and hope for after internationals

Although it would have been a whole lot better for Arsenal if we had gone into the current two week international break on a high instead of on the back of two disappointing results, it still comes at a good time for the Gunners, giving Arsene Wenger and his players a valuable bit of breathing time to recover and refocus for the rest of the season ahead.

Arsenal can and MUST take advantage of rivals’ woes

Despite a slow start to the season, Arsenal seem to have got away with it to a certain extent. Apart from Chelsea, none of our main Premier League rivals have really got it together either. So the Gunners have a great chance and all the encouragement needed to step up against Swansea and go into the international break just a point behind the reigning champions Man City.

City were awful today and lucky to get a point at QPR, just as Liverpool have lost it and Man United were lucky to scrape a home win against Crystal Palace. Louis van Gaal and his little boy striker will certainly not be coming to the Emirates with any form or confidence in a couple of weeks time.

Calm Down!! At least Arsenal WILL qualify in Champions League

I think that Arsenal fans have perhaps been a little bit spoiled by the fact that Arsene Wenger has always managed to get the Gunners into and then out of the group stages of the Uefa Champions League. I was just as frustrated as anyone when we threw away a three goal lead against Anderlecht on Tuesday, but at least we are still in a great position to qualify.

Wenger – Don’t write Arsenal off for the title!

There is little reason that Arsenal can’t manage their third win in a row tomorrow when they face Burnley, despite an ever-lengthening injury list, so Arsene Wenger is trying to gee the remaining players up by saying that Arsenal can still catch Chelsea in the race for the Premiership title.

Arsenal are currently 20/1 to win the title with Chelsea very short favourites, but enger says these prices are false. He said today: “I don’t write ourselves off, we can do it.

“[The title odds] don’t consider who we played, the quality of the other teams, missing players.

Luck is WITH Arsenal but MUST not be wasted!!

I don’t know about the rest of you Arsenal fans, but I think we should be feeling pretty lucky right now. Arsenal have had plenty of bad luck, but to find ourselves just off the top four and ahead of our big rivals Liverpool and Man United and just three points behind Man City after the way we have started the reason is a huge bonus.

Ray Parlour sure Arsenal can only hope to challenge for Wenger Cup

The Arsenal legend Ray Parlour watched Arsenal only end up with yet another point on Saturday, and he is very sure that the best that the Gunners can hope for this season is the usual Wenger Cup for scraping into the Champions League, but he doesn’t even think that will be easy!

‘I think Arsenal are fighting for third or fourth place,’ Parlour was quoted as saying in the Mail. ‘You look at Manchester City and Chelsea and they’re in a different league compared to Arsenal.

The 3 reasons Arsenal WILL sign Khedira in January

With Arsenal once again showing our soft underbelly with a tame performance and a disappointing draw with Hull City at the Emirates yesterday, the need for more power and fight in the squad has become more urgent than ever. And according to the latest Arsenal transfer rumours, Arsene Wenger is finally ready to act and bring in Sami Khedira in the January transfer window.

So Wenger DID hurt Mourinho! The players should copy him!

So Wenger hurt Mourinho……Great! by By AondoaverK

I have to admit that my best moment during the last Chelsea vs. Arsenal clash at Stamford bridge was the touchline spat between Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho. I felt like Le Prof won that round even though we lost the match by those two unreplied goals.

I think Mourinho was quite surprised at Mr Wenger’s firm shove and seemed to stagger a bit, such that he had to hold on to Mr Wenger’s tie to keep balance. It was a good thing that the match officials quickly moved to calm things down.

Costa injury gives Arsenal chance to get back in title race!!

First of all Arsenal fans, I have to say that the news about the Chelsea striker Diego Costa being a serious doubt for this weekend and possibly missing the next three weeks through injury could turn out to be more mischief and misdirection from the mouth of Mourinho. It would not be the first time.

But if the news reported by the Daily Star is right and the Blues will have to do without their star striker, it gives Arsenal a great chance to close the gap on the pace setters and get our own tilt for the Premier League title firmly back on track.
