Arteta shocked but looks for positives after Arsenal defeat

The Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta is in a state of shock after seeing Arsenal only score one goal in injury time – against a Man United side that were completely over-run by the Gunners attack.

“I am shocked we did not win this game, I cannot believe it still,” he said on Arsenal.com.

“I think we played our best game of the season, in terms of what we demand from ourselves with the quality of our attack, how early we won the ball back, how consistent we were throughout the game, the number of chances we created, and all that considering the opposition we were playing against.

Wenger surprised by lack of Arsenal defence for Rooney’s goal

Arsene Wenger was understandably annoyed by Arsenal’s home defeat against Man United. The Gunners dominated possession but were undone by a farcical own goal. As the team were pushing for the equaliser, Wayne Rooney somehow broke away with absolutely no Arsenal defenders between him and the goal to put the result beyond doubt.

Wenger admitted that he was “surprised” by the lack of defence. “We were 1-0 down and we wanted to desperately come back, and we forgot our principles a little bit,” he said.

Arsenal fans should NOT accept losing to Man United at home!

Arsene – Speechless, Clueless but his job is still safe! by KM

What a disappointment. What does Wenger care about the poor old Arsenal fans saving money all year to make that one trip to the Emirates to see Arsenal lose to the WORST UNITED SIDE I’ve seen in my entire life.

Disaster… I had only one wish this year, and it was to beat a poor Man United side. I didn’t make the illusions we will win the league. Not until Wenger is gone. And just when i thought he cannot screw this one, there it is. The players looked on in disbelief. When they don’t know what to do, the manager should, instead Wenger sits there CLUELESS!

Arsenal v Man United Preview, Line-up and Score Prediction

Arsenal vs Manchester United Preview, predicted line up and score by KJ

This international break was probably the least annoying of all the ones we’ve had so far. Most fans were pretty annoyed at our last result and this has given us ample time to distance ourselves from the result and the performance and this has no doubt rejuvenated our hope that we can actually start playing good football again.

With Shaw out can Arsenal play Chambers as centre back?

It was looking like Arsene Wenger would probably stick with the same back four set up to face Manchester United later today, as neither Laurent Koscielny nor Mathieu Debuchy is fit to play. And that means that our Spanish left back Nacho Monreal would partner Per Mertesacker in the centre of defence, with young Calum Chambers at right back.

But I think the boss would agree that Chambers is the better option alongside our BFG, as long as we did not need him on the right. With Chambers’ fellow Southampton academy graduate and England international Luke Shaw supporting Januzaj or Di Maria on the left flank, however, Wenger probably thought Chambers would be better on the right than young Hector Bellerin.

Arsenal can have NO excuses against a weak Man United team

No Excuses! A must-win game against a weak Man United side by KM

Four years ago I made my only trip to London so far, with a promise that when I return it’ll be to see the mighty Arsenal play, and so it comes this Saturday I will be at the Emirates to see Arsenal play Manchester United in what used to be the Premier Leagues best match.

Now things have changed and Arsenal and United struggle to find their former selves, but as it stands Arsenal is in a better position than United. The pressure is on LVG to deliver after that whooping spending he did in the summer.

Ramsey reckons Arsenal can turn despair to delight next week!

It is a shame that Arsene Wenger will not see the star of the season for Arsenal so far until later this week, as Alexis Sanchez plays for Chile tomorrow night and then has a long flight back to London. But the 25-year old is so good he will slot straight back into Premier League action.

And the Frenchman will have a few days with the rest of the squad in order to get them prepared for the crunch clash with Manchester United at the Emirates on Saturday. We really need to win that in order to get the confidence levels high again before Borussia Dortmund visit next Wednesday.

Why Welbeck’s England goals are GREAT news for Arsenal

It was great to see the Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck score two more goals for England tonight and it can only help Arsenal when the Premier League and Champions League resumes next week.

I do think these two international goals are really important for Arsenal and Welbeck, because I get the feeling he needed them to keep his confidence levels up.

The young striker has been playing well recently anyway and it is not as if he is on a goal drought or anything, his last club goal coming in the away game with Anderlecht. But that is four games without a goal while Alexis Sanchez grabbed the headlines, so bagging a couple himself will have done Welbeck the world of good.

Arsenal fans need to count their blessings and get a grip!

Following on from Big Gun’s sensible post about the state of Arsenal right now, I thought it was about time that JustArsenal’s Mr Admin should give a personal opinion. I have ALWAYS felt that EVERY fan is allowed to have an opinion and will let them publish or comment on the forum, but lately I am finding I am having to delete very personal abuse against other readers. This will NOT be tolerated. We are ALL Arsenal fans and are here to discuss Arsenal Football Club, not who has the biggest fists in the playground……

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.

Costa injury gives Arsenal chance to get back in title race!!

First of all Arsenal fans, I have to say that the news about the Chelsea striker Diego Costa being a serious doubt for this weekend and possibly missing the next three weeks through injury could turn out to be more mischief and misdirection from the mouth of Mourinho. It would not be the first time.

But if the news reported by the Daily Star is right and the Blues will have to do without their star striker, it gives Arsenal a great chance to close the gap on the pace setters and get our own tilt for the Premier League title firmly back on track.

Khedira to Arsenal transfer at risk from Chelsea AND Juventus

Can the world stop picking on Arsenal for a while. Not for long, I am not greedy, but it would be nice if we didn’t have to without almost a complete first team of players through injury for the rest of the season. And it would be nice if Arsene Wenger could complete his transfer business in January without some of the richest and most extravagant clubs in the world getting involved.
