Is this really the BEST Arsenal attack ever?

The Arsenal and England international star Theo Walcott is finally back in the match day squads after a year on the sidelines with the anterior cruciate ligament injury he picked up in the FA cup win over the spuds last January. So he is understandably keen to get on to the pitch and start to score goals for the Gunners again.

And as he told Arsenal Player this week, Walcott is even more excited about rejoining the Arsenal attack because of the quality we have in that area now, with Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck having joined Giroud, the Ox, Cazorla, Ozil and all. In fact, the pacy forward feels that this could well be the best attacking line-up that Arsenal have ever had.

Proof Arsenal set to bid for West Ham’s Reid?

I could be wrong about this but hopefully Arsenal are set to strike early in the January transfer window. The player in question could even be heading for a transfer to Arsenal in the next two days is Arsene Wenger intends to make sure that the West Ham and New Zealand international defender Winston Reid is able to help the Gunners defend our FA cup trophy.

West Ham take on Everton in the FA cup on Tuesday so Wenger has a couple of days to ensure that the 26-year old centre back is not cup-tied. But what makes me think that Reid is the player that the Arsenal boss is planning to bring in to bolster our leaky and depleted defensive line?

Should Arsenal should bring Henry back? – As a player?

Titi must return to the Emirates By Twig

I am not a Chelsea fan, but seeing Drogba in his second spell still doing the business for Chelsea gave me a warm fuzzy feeling. It was like watching a repeat of history. Although Drogba has tormented my Arsenal team quite severely over the years I was quite pleased when Mourinho signed him up for a second spell. Drogba will probably call it quits at Chelsea which will be the most befitting end to his amazing career with the Blues.

Is it time for Thierry Henry to return to Arsenal?

Arsenal’s legendary striker Thierry Henry is getting ready to play the last game of his contract with New York Red Bulls today, and he is keeping very quiet about his next career move. There is every chance that he may continue his playing career (maybe in India with some other old Arsenal team-mates?) but surely at 37 years of age he may certainly be considering a bash at management.

He still retains his talent in front of goal but his global experiences should have given him a good basis for being a successful coach, especially with his inside knowledge of how Wenger does his job, so should Arsenal bring him to the Emirates as a boost for the younger players (for now!)?

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.

Thoughts on Arsenal’s transfer window, no DM, and dream formation…

Arsenal of the Future by ElusiveArsenal..

The nerve wracking, nail biting, drama of a transfer window is finally over, and with it we are blessed with two extra weeks of half part-boredom, half part-anxiety. Boredom over the meaningless international friendlies and the ever present fear of one of our own inevitably getting injured. Luckily, our English core have made it through unscathed, and if my Google search is right, so have our German contingent. That leaves our French brothers (Koscielny a doubt). Barring any Shawcrosses, both Debuchy and Kos should return unharmed. This gives at least a week for new boy Danny to make nice with the majority of the team.

Why Wenger WILL make Welbeck Super striker at Arsenal

The fact that Arsenal were allowed to solve our striker crisis with Danny Welbeck on transfer deadline day has not gone down well with fans of Man United, not at all. And it is not just because Danny was a local boy who had spent all his career with them since 2001, it is because they really rate Welbeck and think that he will significantly strengthen the Gunners, one of their big rivals.

And one man who knows the abilities and qualities of Arsenal’s new number 23 better than most is Rene Meulensteen. The Dutch coach joined United as youth coach in the same year as Welbeck and so has worked with him right up until he left United last summer.

Why Arsenal are unlikely to buy another top striker this summer…

Why Arsenal do need a striker, but why it is not as easy as it sounds. by RS

Since the departure of Robin Van Persie, Arsenal fans have been looking for his worthy successor.
That is because for the previous fifteen years, Arsenal were always in possession of world class strikers: Bergkamp, Henry, Anelka and Van Persie.

Both Henry and Bergkamp have achieved a legendary status at the club, just like the entire Invincibles team.

Arsenal loan out Campbell? Don’t be DAFT!!

It took Joel Campbell just a few days and one pre-season game to prove all the Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that Arsene Wenger was going to send him out on loan again, about as daft as Daffy Duck. What a debut from the young Costa Rica international!

We should not have been surprised, I suppose, after his showing at the World Cup finals in Brazil showed that we could have a star of the future on our hands, but any idea that the 22-year old forward might be a bit nervous on his first time in front of the Emirates crowd was proven wrong in the first few minutes.

NY Red Bulls v Arsenal – KJ´s Player ratings

Arsenal 0 – 1 New York Red Bulls Player Ratings by KJ

Szczesny – 7
He made the saves he needed to make and was good with his distribution.

Jenkinson – 3
Awful performance by him. No composure and very clumsy. Was at fault for the goal.

Hayden – 7
Very composed display by him. Made some good tackles and his passing was calm and crisp.

Monreal – 4
He struggled massively but it’s understandable considering he’s playing completely out of position and doesn’t have the physicality of a CB.

Gibbs – 6
Decent overall performance by him. Nothing spectacular.

French star of the future confirms Arsenal were interested

Arsenal have been beaten to the signature of the 18-year old midfielder, Kingsley Coman, by the Serie A club Juventus. The teenager is so highly thought of that the likes of Bayern Munich were also keen on taking him after he decided to leave the French champions PSG, in order to secure more regular playing time.

In the next few years, Arsene Wenger could be kicking himself for missing out on this star of the future, especially when you hear the young Frenchman’s reasons for choosing the Italian club. A Daily Mail report reveals that it was the fact that Juventus have a strong history of having French players in their team.

CLASSIC putdown as Arsenal legend savages Savage!!

Hey Arsenal fans, can you remember what it was like when Leicester City used to give the Gunners a real nightmare and take points off us? It was when they had the football genius and hairdresser’s dream that is Robbie Savage bossing the Foxes from the centre of midfield.

You must remember it; when Arsenal legends like Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Patrick Vieira, Rober Pires and all struggled to cope with the daft blond Welshman. No? Maybe that is because it only happened in the deluded memory of Savahe himself. Henry certainly did not seem to recall things the same way when Savage tried to talk to our former striker about it when they were both on World Cup pundit duty, as the video below shows.
