Arsenal dodged BIG bullet and WILL beat Monaco!

Arsenal thoughts on the weekend by Sam P

Relief was the overwhelming sensation sweeping through Arsenal fans, the players and Arsene Wenger when Mark Clattenburg blew the final whistle at Selhurst Park on Saturday. The important thing was that all three points were heading to north London, but then there was quite a bit of concern from Arsenal fans that we had been hanging on and were lucky to get the win against a team we should easily beat.

Wenger agrees that Arsenal were lucky against Palace

This is becoming so regular it is becoming monotonous for Arsenal fans. The Gunners fly into a comfortable lead, try to defend, then end up conceding one and fighting like madmen to try to stop the equalizer. This is exactly what happened yesterday against Crystal Palace and we got our lucky break when our opponents hit the post instead of scoring in the dying seconds.

Fast starts have Arsenal really flying says Walcott

There is no doubt that Arsenal have been doing better recently. Since the disappointing performance and defeat by Southampton at St. Mary┬┤s on new years day, the Gunners have won every game bar the north London derby. And even in that game at White Hart Lane we took the lead.

Forget Man Utd – Arsenal have MUST WIN game this week!!

Perhaps because Arsenal fans see the FA cup as the most likely competition for the club to win another trophy in this season has made us focus on it. And the fact that our away tie with Manchester United is clearly the glamour tie of the quarter-final stage and then has had even more media focus placed on it by the infuriating decision by the BBC to schedule it for Monday night has added to that.

Sanogo can still have BIG effect on Arsenal’s season

The Arsenal and France under 21 international striker Yaya Sanogo has completed his transfer move to the Premier League club Crystal Palace, on loan until the end of the season. I do not know if there is any sort of clause to allow Arsene Wenger to recall the tall striker in an emergency but I assume that Sanogo will be staying at Selhurst Park for the rest of the campaign.

Injury problems mean Hull is PERFECT for Arsenal’s Sanogo

According to some of the recent Arsenal transfer rumours and a few words from Arsene Wenger, our young French striker Yaya Sanogo is set to spend the rest of the season on loan in order to gain some valuable game time. The Arsenal boss clearly wants that loan spell to be with a Premier League club and with two of them vying for the 21-year old, Wenger will probably get his wish.

Arsenal’s Sanogo set for Premier League transfer! Good news?

A few weeks ago it looked like the Arsenal and France under 21 international star Yaya Sanogo would be heading back to his homeland to play. It was only going to be a loan deal in order to get the young striker the regular game time and competitive playing experience that does not seem to be on the cards for him with the Gunners this season.

Why letting this striker leave would HELP Arsenal

Now that Arsenal have Olivier Giroud back in the first team after his freak tibia injury at the start of the season, and with Theo Walcott back in training and on the bench for the away game at Anfield, the attacking side of the Arsenal squad is the one thing that Arsene Wenger does not have to worry about.
