Why Arsenal fans should NOT give up on EPL title yet!!

Yes I know that Arsenal have not exactly looked like title winners so far this season. And even when we have had a bit of luck or put a few results together, the hoped for momentum has been lost soon after. But although it looks like Jose Mourinho and his Chelsea team, currently 11 points ahead of Arsenal, have got one hand on the Premier League trophy, it is not over yet.

Arsenal set to sign Premier League giant?

Now I know that we are going through a boring international beak, but the latest Arsenal transfer rumour seems like a desperate attempt to fill the back pages of the tabloids.

The Express are reporting that the Gunners are going to bring in the brilliant Petr Cech from Chelsea in January, and the only basis I can see for them to suggest this is because Thibault Courtois said that IF he was Cech he would leave Chelsea to play first team football.

Bad news for Arsenal as transfer target wants Chelsea move

It is bad enough for Arsenal and their fans that we were beaten to the signature of Eden Hazard in the summer of 2012 when Chelsea apparently swooped in and offered his French club Lille more money. And now it looks like history may be about to repeat itself.

According to a Daily Star report, the Gunners are set to lose out to Chelsea again, on the talented young player Zakaria Bakkali, whose fantastic performances for his Dutch club PSV Eindhoven as well as the fact that he is a Belgium international, has led to him being dubbed the new Eden Hazard.

The Arsenal defensive problems are Wenger’s doing – Face facts!

Drinking Poison and Wishing Your Enemy Dead by Toronto Arsenal

After Arsenal gave up a three goal lead against Anderlecht, Arsene Wenger looked furious and I did not see him shake his opponents hand before storming away. The look on his face was that of a man in pain and distress but what I cannot understand is what he expected. According to Nelson Mandela you cannot drink poison and expect your enemy to die.

Market Forces – And why Arsenal SHOULD NOT sack Wenger

Should Arsene Wenger be sacked? by TB

I guess it is a sign of the times that ‘football’ is likened to ‘trading’ as a fellow ‘results business’. The Casino Economy meets The Premier League – even at the Arsenal!

It’s all about winners and losers after the Market paradigm, Murdoch’s Sky TV and Global Capital marched into town. Whilst there are clear benefits generated by all this – after all, how else would we have Arsene Wenger and his unique contribution to football with Thierry Henri, Pires, Vieira et al right up to today with stars in waiting Alexis, Ozil, Ramsey and all our talented youngsters – I believe there is also something very unsavoury about it. Something fundamental to the soul of football is lost in this ugly process.

Thanks Wenger, but either change or get out of Arsenal!

No Arsenal fan can be happy with the performances NOR the results by KM

After being slaughtered every time I put Arsenal’s faults down to the manager, he comes out once again to prove my points correct. Happy birthday Arsene, there are your three points. Taking the points was massive, because it means one more win and we will most likely go through.

But bar the points, the only positive I can take is Alexis Sanchez. What a player we bought there! Bar the undeniable quality, his lightning pace and his finishing, we have a fighter. His spirit and commitment to the game are undeniable. He saved our point against Hull and he was our only threat going forward.

For the attention of Arsene Wenger – from an Arsenal Fan…

IS ARSENE WENGER DOING CORROSIVE DAMAGE TO HIS REPUTATION by TorontoArsenal

Despite the disappointing results of the past decade it appears fans of Arsenal FC, including myself, are powerless when it comes to being able to force through desperately needed changes because of Arsene Wenger’s entrenched position within the Arsenal FC hierarchy. I do not want to start listing the heartbreaks of the past years but would like to draw Arsene Wenger’s attention to the following:

1 For some reason your tactics, if any, have remained frozen in the past and you must act in the best interest of this club by moving up to the office and letting a younger and success hungry manager take over the club;

So Wenger DID hurt Mourinho! The players should copy him!

So Wenger hurt Mourinho……Great! by By AondoaverK

I have to admit that my best moment during the last Chelsea vs. Arsenal clash at Stamford bridge was the touchline spat between Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho. I felt like Le Prof won that round even though we lost the match by those two unreplied goals.

I think Mourinho was quite surprised at Mr Wenger’s firm shove and seemed to stagger a bit, such that he had to hold on to Mr Wenger’s tie to keep balance. It was a good thing that the match officials quickly moved to calm things down.

Why Arsenal will LOSE if Chelsea go for Khedira transfer!!

It was only a few weeks ago that Arsenal fans were hearing some good news on Sami Khedira in various Arsenal transfer rumours around the media. The gist of it was that the Gunners had agreed personal terms with the Germany international and just needed to wrap up the deal with his current club Real Madrid, who know that January is their last chance to get something before the midfielder leaves on a free transfer next summer. All good then.

Can Arsenal really catch Chelsea? Wenger says YES!

When Arsenal meekly lost to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend, most Gooners became resigned to fighting out for fourth place in the League again come the end of the season, but Arsene Wenger believes that our title challenge is far from over.

“Chelsea will also have a difficult period in the season.”Wenger said.”Our schedule was extremely difficult and I have the belief that we can close the gap to them.”

Is this Arsenal star having a Giraffe?

Maybe they do things differently in France, maybe the Arsenal and France international defender has a character as spiky as his hairdo and is always falling out with his friends and calling them names. In fact, the disciplinary record of Laurent Koscielny would back that theory up, as it was revealed the other day in a Daily Mail report that our central defender tops the list of Premier League penalties conceded since 2010.

Koscielny has spoken about his unwanted record, as reported by ESPN, and the way the 29-year old Gunner responded to the news was fairly tongue in cheek, mentioning the Guinness Book of Records and suggesting that his unfortunate habit only matters in a close game.

Wenger WANTED an Arsenal win, but forgot his homework!

A thought on Arsene Wenger‏ by KM

What was expected is what happened. They stole my shoes! Can you imagine in the 21st century they’d take your shoes from your doorstep? Now that was unexpected, but the game at the weekend ended as predicted. Chelsea beat us 2 – 0 and Wenger lost another game against Mourinho. Wenger cared about this game. The Arsenal boss really wanted to make up for last year and did some homework. Sadly Chelsea did their homework in the summer and we didn’t.
