Giroud warns Arsenal not to take Monaco lightly

Why Arsenal Cannot Take Monaco Lightly! by AT

The majority of Arsenal fans will be very happy with the Champions League round of 16 draw after drawing AS Monaco and will also be quietly confident of the Gunners beating the Ligue 1 outfit to progress into the Quarter-Finals of Europe’s elite competition. While it is comparatively a much better draw considering we could have drawn Real Madrid or Bayern Munich like the past two seasons, the Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has reminded us that Monaco will not be pushovers.

Is this REALLY the best Arsenal attack under Wenger?

Arsene Wenger was understandably happy after his Arsenal team not only managed to beat an in form Newcastle United on Saturday, but managed to do it in such a convincing fashion that instead of having personal abuse hurled at him in a dingy train station in Stoke, the Frenchman heard `there’s only one Arsene Wenger` ringing around the Emirates stadium.

Although the manager has praised the team’s dynamic and balance recently, there is little doubt about which part of the Arsenal team was responsible for the fans’ happiness, with 10 goals scored in the last three games and some really top class strikers among them. The Gunners have conceded in all of those games and there is no doubt that our defence has not been the best this season, for various reasons.

How will Walcott fit in to awesome Arsenal attack?

I am not sure if the Arsenal and England international forward Theo Walcott is worried about getting his place back in the starting line-up for the Gunners, but the 25-year old is going to have to show Arsene Wenger some good form in training if he is to force his way into an Arsenal attacking line in good form and with good options already.

At the minute I expect Walcott and Wenger are focused solely on getting the speed merchant fit again after almost no competitive football for nearly a year. It was great news to hear that he did not need to undergo more surgery to fix that groin problem picked up with England in training about a month ago.

One good Arsenal win doesn’t change Wenger’s failings

One good win and suddenly there is Only One Arsene Wenger? Please….. by KM

Arsenal finally produced a performance typical of ourselves. We played with 2 rested strikers from midweek and it immediately payed off. We were dynamic and too much for Newcastle to handle. Onto the positives.

We had 3 rested strikers in Giroud, Welbeck and Sanches and we looked dynamic. Although the first two will never be the world class finishers we need they are team players. Giroud combines well and holds the ball up. He also gives us presence and a chance to win the first ball, something we don’t do a lot.

Arsenal score four and Wenger praises the defence!

Arsenal were back to the best in yesterday’s 4-1 win at Newcastle and Giroud, and Cazorla scored two apiece to give us a very comfortable victory, not to mention Welbeck’s unluckily disallowed finish and the numerous other chances created in the 90 minutes. After the game you would have expected Arsene Wenger to highlight the attacking qualities in our rejuvenated side, but he was quicker to praise our defence.

“We played well today with a very offensive team,” Wenger said on Arsenal.com. “I felt that even defensively we looked comfortable and the balance was right.

Arsenal v Newcastle review – First class finishing Guns down Magpies

Arsenal fans were understandably worried about which Arsenal team would be on display against Newcastle United at the Emirates today. Would it be the gutless Gunners that were simply blown away by Stoke City last weekend or would it be the awesome Arsenal that tore apart Galatasaray in Turkey?

And while Arsenal did not take the lead quite so early today, there was no sign of the timid performance that we put on at the Britannia stadium. The goal was not too long in coming either, giving Arsenal a rare first half lead in the Premier League. An excellent cross by Alexis was brilliantly headed in by the very sharp looking Giroud.

We’ve been extremely inconsistent in the league and this means that the top 4 hasn’t really been established. At the moment, United are the most likeliest to make it in there but the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool have all failed to really establish themselves and are now in a fight with each other to get that final place.

Giroud – The Arsenal PLAYERS may lack commitment – But DO NOT blame Wenger!

There have been hundreds of posts on JustArsenal from AKBs and AOBs regularly this season, but it seems that the Arsenal players are totally 100% behind Le Boss. Yes we know that the squad has been severely depleted by injuries but Olivier Giroud (who was one of those that have missed a good part of the season) says that there has been nothing wrong with the attitude of Wenger, but does believe that the commitment of the players could have been questioned at times.

Podolski shows why Arsenal SHOULD NOT sell him

Lukas Podolski has made no secret of the fact that he is unhappy with being on the bench at Arsenal for nearly half the season, but he was given a great opportunity last night to show why Wenger should not be ignoring him. He played the full 90 minutes for only the second time this season (the first was the League Cup defeat to Southampton) and knocked in two goals in the 4-1 win.

He said on Arsenal.com after the game:“We came here and left some players at home but you could see the mentality of the team in the first half was very good and the performance was as well,”

The players that Arsenal NEED to sign NOW

Arsenal Must Mass Clear Average Players and Sign World Class Now! by Nikko

When Arsene Wenger arrived at Arsenal, good football arrived. It was not just positive football but also trophies and for the first time Arsenal become a regular competitor at the highest level in England and Europe.

Comedy of errors is last straw for Wenger

Classical comedy display from Wenger once again!‏ by KM

It goes without saying that Arsenal are beaten at the Britannia again! And again we are beaten by our own managers inability to manage a top side football club. The mistakes at the defense do not need to be commented.

No keeper, no defenders, nothing. Koscielny will leave in the summer. He’s the only player in our defense that is reliable and he’ll be snapped by a top club like Bayern. We are shambolic in defense.

Official teams and preview of Stoke v Arsenal

If Arsenal can win away to Stoke City today it will make it four wins in a row in all competitions and would surely put the momoies of a poor start to the season firmly behind us and leave us looking forward to the rest of the season with some optimism.

But with just one win from our last eight games against the Potters, it does not looka n easy task. But the home side are ona miserable run of form and results, with three defeats in a row and some of their own injury problems to deal with. They are nothing like ours, although at least Kieran Gibbs is available to cover for the Spanish left back Nacho Monreal.
