Is Wenger right to say Arsenal did WELL in 2014?

Even though Arsenal are going to finish the calendar year of 2014 outside of the Premier League top four when we began the year on top of the tree, and having been knocked out of the Capital One cup at the first hurdle, Arsene Wenger has claimed that Arsenal have done very well over the last 12 months.

In an Arsenal.com report, the manager has been looking back over the year and seeing it in a very positive light. The main achievements he points to are the increase to 79 points and obviously the FA cup triumph at Wembley in May.

Cazorla – Relaxed Arsenal ready for more trophy success!

The pressure had been building on Arsenal for nine years, with a defeat in one Champions League final and two League Cup finals along the way. So it should not have been a surprise to see the Arsenal players struggle to cope with the pressure and expectation last season.

But that pressure so nearly made the Gunners slip up in the semi-final against Wigan, when we needed an 82nd minute leveller from Mertesacker and some cool heads in the penalty shootout to make the final. And I’m sure that no one has forgotten about how we nearly threw it all away with a shocking start against Hull City at Wembley.

Are Arsenal now ready to go all the way?

Are the gunners ready? by TJ

Many footballing fans around the world are expecting Arsenal to be one of the top teams in the coming season.

FOUR reasons why Arsenal’s FA Cup win was so important

Reasons the FA cup win was so important

9 long years Arsenal fans had went through without silverware of any sort. 9 long years Arsenal fans had suffered both heartbreak and mockery from the footballing world. Finally, it has ended with the FA cup victory last season. Here are 4 reasons why did that trophy last season was so important.

1) Belief in Wenger again

The fans now believe in this team again. We came so close many times and finally we got it done. Fans now trust that Wenger is the man to bring us back to the very top. He has shown that he is still able to win in this nowadays, money dominated sport.

Arsenal need to build on FA Cup win – Just do it, Arsene!


The feeling of exhilaration due to success after a period of hard work and major setbacks is so vital. The Arsenal drought had lasted for nine years. It had become a norm that either our season would collapse at one point in the season either in the opening or in the closing periods. Winning the F.A cup this season was a significant improvement but it doesn’t hide the fact that we faltered in the race for the premier league. The F.A cup triumph however aided to conceal such frailties and imperfections in our season that ought to resurface again if they are ignored.

Should Arsenal fans back the team to win another Cup next season?

Gunners Set To Fire Again by CR

Arsenal ended their nine-year wait for a trophy in the FA Cup last season. Their victory over Hull in the final at Wembley eased the pressure off manager Arsene Wenger’s shoulders as he finally delivered some silverware for the fans once again.

The Gunners should be able to go into next campaign looking to build on their cup success. They are no longer going to be reminded about their drought which will help their cause.

The Story of Arsenal’s season – from an Anguished Fan!


How was it for you my fellow gooners…?

My first comment must be to congratulate the players and manager for a truly memorable victory.. And a great game for many neutrals as well as us heart attack victims watching it especially Mertesackers calamity (almost)..


A fantastic win for Arsenal – but we still need to invest to improve!

FA Cup win must be a springboard to success by Konstantin

Good times to be a gooner. A trophy finally. And you can immediately see what it meant to everyone at Arsenal. The players were so happy, that’s what they play for. To tell the story of how they won trophies. You could just see how happy Koscielny was with the FA Cup. Fabianski was loving it. For the younger english players Wilshere, Gibbs, Jenkinson and Walcott. What it meant for Ramsey and the turnaround in his career.

Hull legend – Arsenal can be beaten!

The ex-Hull City striker Dean Windass, who at the age of 39 famously scored the goal at Wembley that gave the Tigers their first every entry into the Premier League, is insisting that Hull can win their first FA Cup against Arsenal tomorrow.

He rightly says that in the Cup all form goes out the window (just look at Wigan last year) and Hull City are no pushovers in any game. “Let’s face it, Bruce has done an incredible job,” Windass said in the Express. “Not only keeping us in the Premier League but also getting to a Cup Final and into Europe for the first time,”

Arsenal have Jack Wilshere back but Ramsey still a worry

With one Premier League game of the season left, it is a case of better late than never for Arsenal. After a couple of months out of action, Jack Wilshere is fit again and likely to feature against Norwich City at Carrow Road on Sunday.

You have to wonder if things would have been different for the Gunners if Jack Wilshere had not had his foot broken by the Denmark and Liverpool defender Daniel Agger while playing for England in a meaningless friendly on March 5th. Arsenal were already struggling with an injury crisis by then and, after Jack was also ruled out, we went out of the Champions League and lost all hope of the title with two damaging defeats and two disappointing draws in a four game period.

Nasri lays into Mourinho AND Arsenal fans over Wenger treatment

It might seem strange, given the strained nature of the relationship between Samir Nasri and the Arsenal fans, but the Frenchman will be fully rooting for Arsenal to beat Hull City at Wembley on May 17th and win the FA cup. Why? Because Nasri feels it is the least that Arsene Wenger deserves.

The Man City player has spoken in glowing terms of his former boss, while slating the man he left the Gunners to play for, Roberto Mancini, in an interview in The Telegraph.

Wenger and Giroud set to sign new Arsenal contracts?

If you had suggested around about a week ago that Arsenal were on the verge of tying down the manager Arsene Wenger and his favourite centre forward Olivier Giroud with shiny new contracts, you would have been chased through north London by an angry mob of red and white Gooners.

However, things are looking a lot rosier at the club just now. If the Gunners win the next four games, with the French striker putting in the sort of performance that he did against West Ham United and Hull City, those new contracts could soon be signed, sealed and delivered.
