Arsenal Analysis of who will stay or go – Part 1 The Defence

Hi Guys,

I haven’t written for JustArsenal for a while, but I thought we should discuss about the players we have right now, and what to expect next season in the context of ‘who is going to come in and who is going out’, So here are our current defensive options:

Arsenal plan SHOCK Dortmund defender transfer (Not Hummels)

Arsenal, along with just about every other big club around Europe, have been linked with a move for the Borussia Dortmund and Germany international star Mats Hummels. But despite many Arsenal transfer rumours and the fact that his current club have had a nightmare season in the German Bundesliga while the player’s contract was running down, Hummels wanted to remain with his current club.

Why Arsenal should stick with pumped up Welbeck!

While Arsenal fans will be celebrating a rare Old Trafford win all week and sticking it to any Man United fans that we can get hold of, Arsene Wenger will be focusing straight away on the next game. In fact the Frenchman will probably be planning for the next three games, which come for Arsenal in the space of seven days.

Arsenal injury curse strikes Gabriel already

We were all over the moon when Arsene Wenger finally fixed Arsenal’s lack of defensive options by buying Gabriel in January, but it now seems that we are back to square one for the next few weeks. Everyone at JustArsenal thought that Gabriel would start alongside Koscielny for last night’s game against QPR, but it was the surprise pairing with Mertesacker that were in the First XI on only the Brazilian’s second start for the Gunners.

Wenger reveals why Arsenal will NOT dump our BFG

No one was surprised to see that Arsene Wenger chose to drop (or rest) the Arsenal vice-captain for the Premier League home clash with Everton on Sunday, after the World Cup winning defender was the worst of a bad bunch against Monaco in the Champions League.

Is it Mertesacker’s turn for the Arsenal Captain’s Curse?

After Thomas Vermaelen was sold off in the summer after being a non-playing Arsenal Captain last season, Mikel Arteta was the newly appointed Top Dog in the changing room. Since the Spaniard succumbed to injury poor old Per Mertesacker took up the slack as designated vice-captain, but his performances since then have left much to be desired.

Arsenal need some leaders or we’ll never change

Before tonight’s game with Monaco, I was fairly optimistic after four years of drawing against stronger opponents and only being narrowly defeated, we finally had a great opportunity to make it through to the quarter finals of the Champions League. But after watching that absolutely disgusting display, which took me by surprise to say the least, has left me wondering what the problem actually is at Arsenal.
