Don’t Panic Arsenal – Top four place is NO problem!

While I know that Arsenal fans, me included, were hoping for a lot more from the Gunners this season, and while I hate the phrase `Wenger trophy` it is still absolutely vital that that Arsenal finish in the top four of the Premier League this season.

Do not let the jibes from the media and opposing fans fool you into thinking that our remarkable achievement of qualifying for the Champions League every season is nothing, because there have always been and always will be plenty of clubs who would sell their kidneys to be where we are.

Today’s EPL games show Arsenal what luck can do!

I am not complaining about the bad luck that Arsenal have had so far this season, well not much anyway, but I do think that the start could have been so much better for the Gunners if we had just had a little bit better luck, or less good luck.

Arsenal have had some harsh red cards, lenient refereeing for our opponents, a string of unfortunate injuries like Giroud’s bizarre tibia break and just have not really had the rub of the green. I’m sure that we will have our own good luck as the campaign wears on but I don’t think we should ignore the things that have gone against us and blame everything on the players and Arsene Wenger.

NOW who thinks Arsenal were wrong to snub Balotelli?

When a lot of Arsenal transfer rumours were linking us with a move for the AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli, in the early stages of the World Cup finals, most Arsenal fans were not that keen. Even though the striker had played well for Italy and put England to the sword, it was the attitude and off field baggage that put us off. And then Wenger said outright that it was not happening, so all was forgotten.

Football media just love bashing Arsenal – Don’t join them!

Arsenal fans should SUPPORT Arsenal by Sam P

I don’t know what Arsenal have done to deserve it, but we are always the favourite target ofr the media to shoot at. Paranoia? No, because you are not paranoid if people really do NOT like you and are always slagging you off. I am not saying that we are the only targets, because things like the Man United fiasco last season will always give them bullets to fire, but I reckon we get more abuse than any other big club.

Arsenal tactics – Should we copy Liverpool and England’s diamond formation?

Arsenal’s Formation in 4-4-2 Diamond– The Liverpool and England Way By Supertuur

In the 2013/14 season two teams really stood out with their goal scoring capabilities, Liverpool with Suarez and Sturridge and City with Augero, Negredo, Dzeko and Jovetic. Besides the quality of their strikers what was the other reason they scored so much? They played 4-4-2, although in different variations. Today I will focus on the formation Liverpool and recently England play which is the 4-4-2 diamond or also known as 4-1-2-1-2.

How would an Arsenal team look in a 4-4-2 diamond formation?

Now could Arsenal get Remy to lower his wage demands?

I don’t know if it will, but the transfer of Loic Remy to Arsenal could be back on. It seems as though Arsene Wenger has been linked with a move for the talented French striker forever, with some Arsenal transfer rumours claiming this summer that the Prof had finally got his man.

But apparently Wenger backed off the move because of Remy’s wage demands of around £80,000. I certainly wasn’t his transfer fee because a release clause in his contract with QPR made the 27-year old available for just £8.5 million. I think that Arsenal were hoping to persuade the France international to accept a bit less for the chance to play in the Champions League, but once Liverpool joined the chase, those hopes were gone and the media thought it was a done deal.

Why 4th place would STILL be good for Arsenal

First of all, I am really looking forward to this season. Arsenal have already done some good business in the transfer window and, hopefully, Arsene Wenger will be adding a few more names to go with the completed transfers of Alexis Sanchez, Mathieu Debuchy and David Ospina.

With a few less injury problems, I am optimistic that the Gunners will have a really good crack at the Premier League title. I believe we can win it and if not, then another cup success is certainly possible. But at the same time, I think that staying in the top four will be a significant achievement for Arsenal. It will not be easy.

Who is biggest threat to Arsenal being Premier League champions?

With over a month still to go in the summer transfer window, Arsenal have already done some very good business, with David Ospina soon to be confirmed and with Mathieu Debuchy and Alexis Sanchez already done and dusted. Plus, Arsene Wenger and Theo Gazidis have promised us more, so the Gunners will certainly have a stronger squad than last season.

But of course, all of the other Premier League teams will be trying to improve as well, so will Arsenal be able to improve on our fourth place finish? Not according to Michael Owen, but who listens to that biased midget anyway. Arsenal fans will certainly be hoping and believing that we can win the title this time, but who will provide the biggest threat?

He’s at it again! Bias boy Owen predicts Arsenal downfall

Maybe I am wrong about Michael Owen having a huge bias against Arsenal and for his former clubs, Liverpool and Man United. Maybe, but I do not think so, as the former England striker seems to go out of his way to criticise us and predict doom and gloom for the Gunners.

That is probably how he kept his job at BT Sport, who have proved with their latest adverts that they are about as fond of Arsenal as a Tottenham fan whose wife has just run off with a Gooner. It certainly is not Owen’s scintillating commentary, incisive punditry or exciting tone of voice that keeps him in work there, that’s for sure.

Ozil and Wenger had BIG influence on Sanchez choosing Arsenal

When it became clear that our new signing Alexis Sanchez had made Arsenal his choice, despite interest from the Italian champions Juventus and some of our big rivals in the Premier League, the arrogance of the Liverpool fans rose to the surface. They hit out at the Chilean and us via social media, accusing him of choosing the London lifestyle over football glory by coming to Arsenal, a club with no history and ambition, according to the red scousers.

It’s PUMA day for Arsenal but Sanchez transfer may NOT go through!

With the launch of the new Arsenal kit and other training gear and merchandise designed by the club’s new commercial partners NIKE later today, Arsenal fans are expecting it to be accompanied by the announcement of some new players to strengthen our hunt for another trophy.

The arrival of Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona seems to be the worst kept transfer secret in the world, but now it seems that the Chile international might not be one of the new Gunners unveiled today after all. The Daily Express are reporting that the deal is being held up because of the ongoing negotiations between his Catalan club and our Premier League rivals over the sale of Gnasher, or Luis Suarez as he is sometimes known.

CONFIRMED! Alexis Sanchez to sign for Arsenal today!

Arsene Wenger himself has confirmed that Alexis Sanchez is on the verge of putting pen to paper on a contract with Arsenal Football Club. This is the news that we have been expecting and waiting for, but it is good to hear some official confirmation, especially after last summer, when we all expected the Gunners to announce the signing of the Argentina striker Gonzalo Higuain from Real Madrid, only to see him sign for Napoli in Serie A.
