Dein on why Arsenal WILL turn Welbeck into goal machine!!

Everybody is talking about the new Arsenal signing Danny Welbeck, after the England international bagged a brace away to Switzerland in his first start since the transfer deadline day move from Man United to the Gunners. And while United fans and their former players are unhappy about letting the talented young forward go, most people connected with Arsenal are buzzing.

That includes David Dein, the former Arsenal chairman who along with Arsene Wenger made the Gunners such a force to be reckoned with and brought in the likes of Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp. Dein knows Wenger and his methods better than anyone and, as reported by Metro, he thinks that the Frenchman is the perfect man to forge Welbeck into a fantastic centre forward.

Can Wilshere really become Arsenal’s own Pirlo?

The Arsenal midfielder was used in an unusual role by the England manager Roy Hodgson this week, as the new Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck grabbed the headlines by scoring both goals against Switzerland to give the three lions an excellent away victory in their first Euro 2016 qualifying game.

Wilshere was used at the base of a diamond with Fabian Delph on the left, Jordan Henderson on the right and Raheem Sterling at the point. And although he initially struggled to find the space he needed to really affect the game as the England boss hoped, he did grow into the role and received a fair bit of praise. Even his recent critic Jamie Redknapp agreed that Jack could make that role his own.

It seems that all the sniping and criticism that has been aimed at the Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere in recent times has not just been like water off a duck’s back. Wilshere has tried to keep it to himself and let the frustration show, but the recent comments from Jamie Redknapp seem to have been the last straw.

As revealed in a Daily Star report, the 22-year old feels that the recent comments by the former captain of Tottenham and current TV pundit were a cheap shot and, considering all the injury problems that Redknapp had in his career, a bit hypocritical and lacking in any real insight or professional respect.

Welbeck sure he WILL step up and score more with Arsenal

The main reason for some Arsenal fans being somewhat less than thrilled when the club signed Danny Welbeck from Man United on transfer deadline day was his goal tally. The 23-year old has never been prolific at Old Trafford or during his loan spells at Preston and Sunderland, but he believes in himself and thinks that his numbers will soon start to get a lot better with Arsenal.

Welbeck was reported by the Daily Star saying, “I’ve never had the opportunity to get a constant run of games as a number nine.

No injuries the REAL positive from Arsenal internationals

For Arsenal fans, especially after a shaky start to the season in the Premier League and Europe, the most important thing to come out of this international break is that Arsene Wenger gets all his Gunners back fully fit from their various international endeavours.

Well it is so far so good for Arsenal after the first round of games and that is by far the most positive thing I can say. A few of the Gunners were in action, with Jack Wilshere, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Chambers and our new signing Danny Welbeck all getting a run out for England.

Why Arsenal need to DROP Wilshere for Leicester clash!!

Look Arsenal fans, before you start slating me for being anti-Wilshere, I am actually one of the writers on here that have been supportive of the young midfielder over the last year. And I have been really pleased to see the real Jack Wilshere start to appear on the pitch again recently.

I still think that Arsene Wenger should drop him from the starting line-up for the visit to face newly promoted Leicester City on Sunday. One reason is that the Gunners will have Aaron Ramsey back in the squad and his suspension for the Besiktas game means that the Welshman will be a bit fresher as well as carrying more of a goal threat.

Time for Wenger to get tough with smoking Arsenal star Wilshere!!

I know that the Arsenal players need to have a break in the summer to relax and recover from the stresses and strains that their minds and bodies are put under during a gruelling season. And those Arsenal stars that have been at the World Cup finals in Brazil will have a shorter break than the rest.

Maybe that is why Jack Wilshere is making the most of his own holiday, although I am not sure how pleased his manager Arsene Wenger will be when he hears that the young midfielder has been caught on camera smoking a cogarette, again! Especially after the 22-year old apologised and vowed not to smoke again when he was caught out in London last year.

Does Wilshere’s latest slating ring Arsenal alarm bells?

There is no doubt that the Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere has had his fair share of bad luck and trouble in his short football career. And last season was no different, with more niggling injuries preventing him from having a big impact on the Arsenal season.

Then the Arsenal man was savaged on live TV by the pundit and former Man United star Paul Scholes, who claimed that Wilshere had not progresses at all in the last four years. Harsh? I thought so, especially with the amount of time on the pitch that the 22-year old has missed through injury.

Wilshere devastated but looking forward to BIG Arsenal season

The Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has had a torrid season since his injury with the England team earlier this year, and he was only used sparingly by Roy Hodgson in Brazil. His career has been blighted with injuries ever since he exploded onto the scene as a precocious 16 year-old.

Now he realises that he can’t be called a promising youngster any longer and its time for him to mature. He told the Guardian: “It’s easy for me to stand here and say: ‘We’re young, we can go forward,’”

Arsenal’s Campbell looking to inflict more misery on England

Definitely the biggest surprise of the World Cup so far has been Costa Rica, who, despite being a tiny country with a population smaller than London, have already beaten the heavyweights of Uruguay and Italy.

Arsenal’s Joel Campbell was the star of the first win, and a Fulham reject Bryan Ruiz scored the only goal against Italy. Both players now believe they can now go on and send England home with their tails between their legs.

Campbell said in the Star: “Can we beat England? Yes, of course. We have a good team and it’s another game like playing against Uruguay and Italy.

Costa Rican Campbell to finally acheive his Arsenal dream? Wanchope says so!

Joel Campbell Edging Closer To Arsenal Return by A.T.

Following a very successful club campaign for Olympiakos in Greece last season, and a particularly impressive start to the World Cup, there has been a lot of talk about Arsenal finally bringing in Costa Rican forward Joel Campbell to play in the Gunners first-team.

Since moving to the Emirates in 2011, the young striker has had three loan spells away from the club, going out on loan to Lorient, Real Betis and most recently, the Greek champions. But despite his lack of opportunities, it seems as though the 21-year-old has certainly not given up on first-team football at Arsenal and is said to be very keen to make a name for himself at the Emirates.

Wilshere reckons Arsenal boss has got it just right

It must have been frustrating for quite a few of the Arsenal players this season, with injuries stopping them really getting up a head of steam, but it must be even worse when you can see your dreams of playing in a World Cup finals in Brazil disappearing over the horizon.

It happened to poor old Theo Walcott, of course, and it looked like he might be joined by his Arsenal and England team mates Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere for a while there. But Arsenal’s two young Englishman look set for Brazil and Jack looks set to start in England’s opening game against Italy, and he believes that Arsene Wenger is a big reason for that.
