Arsenal’s opponents blame the referee for a change!

Arsene Wenger and Per Mertesacker have already admitted that Arsenal were very lucky to beat Crystal Palace yesterday afternoon. The first bit of luck was when the Gunners were awarded a penalty in the 6th minute, and subsequent slow-motion replays showed that the foul was actually committed otside the box.

Crystal Palace actually had more possession and more shots than Arsenal (and MANY MANY more corners, but The Gunners second bit of good fortune came when our second goal was also judged to be offside after the event. We all know the last bit of luck was when the ball hit Ospina’s post in the last minute.

Pardew promises games for on-loan Arsenal striker

The new Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew seems very positive about the arrival of the Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo on loan, and promises to give him ample game-time to prove that he has the talent to make it in the Premier League.

“Yaya comes into our club with much more of an even chance of starting or playing,” he told reporters. “I spoke to Arsene [Wenger], and he has high regard for the player and feels that it would be good for Arsenal and for him to come on loan.

Sanogo can still have BIG effect on Arsenal’s season

The Arsenal and France under 21 international striker Yaya Sanogo has completed his transfer move to the Premier League club Crystal Palace, on loan until the end of the season. I do not know if there is any sort of clause to allow Arsene Wenger to recall the tall striker in an emergency but I assume that Sanogo will be staying at Selhurst Park for the rest of the campaign.

However, as well as hoping that Sanogo gets plenty of game time under Alan Pardew and really starts to find his form in the Premier League, Arsenal fans can still hope that the young Frenchman can have a positive effect on the season for the Gunners.

Pardew makes excuses but admits Arsenal were awesome

The Newcastle manager Alan Pardew was very impressed with the Arsenal side that demolished the Magoies by four goals to one, and although he was missing a couple of his top players he admitted that the Gunners played brilliantly.

Pardew told the Northern Echo: “We missed Moussa Sissoko (suspended) and we didn’t get the balance right,” said Pardew. “But we didn’t play well. They kept coming out on top on physical challenges and they played well.

“I don’t think many teams could have coped with them today. We were a bit sloppy in our passing and a couple of goals were really poor on our part.

Is Wenger having a Christmas joke against Arsenal fans?

Wenger comes out to ruin Xmas for all Arsenal fans by KM

We all know Wenger is incapable of leading Arsenal to any further than fourth, but his latest statement highlights the total lack of ambition we have. We have one of the worse defences the league has EVER seen and we are likely to leave it like that.

Wenger: “If everybody is fit then we don’t need to go into the transfer market”. How can you not laugh at this comment? We desperately need someone to replace Mertesacker who just won’t cut it, and with Koscielny injured and only one right back in the form of Debuchy we desperately need at least 2 more defenders.

Comparing Arsenal with Newcastle, Everton and Dortmund!


What happened at Swansea was so depressing that it brought pealing fit of laughter from me. Interestingly though we have three parallel propositions of varying circumstances and positions for an observer to finally take a subjective as well as objective call on the quality and competence of our Mr. Arsene Wenger.

Wenger warns Arsenal to Take Care and Defend well tonight! or else…

It has been a good few weeks for Arsenal and their fans. And after Roberto Martinez and his Everton players lost their second game in three, a lot of Gooners have already got the team safely into next season’s Champions League, but that is a dangerous attitude.

Arsene Wenger is confident that his players can handle the pressure, but he has been impressing on them the importance of treating the next few games will full focus. First up is Newcastle tonight and, as reported by Arsenal.com, Wenger is well aware that they could trip us up.

Arsenal have got three fairly easy games coming up and winning only two of them would secure our position in the top 4 for this season. This is particularly important considering we have an FA cup final to look forward to a week after the game against Norwich away and the possibility of being able to rest key players is impossible to pass up.

Newcastle are falling apart at the moment and I can’t say I’m too unhappy. Pardew has always showed resentment towards Arsenal and Wenger. He is ultimately a hypocrite who is seeing his bargain bin French side imploding.

Crisis hit Newcastle ripe for Arsenal onslaught

If Arsene Wenger had to hand pick a team for Arsenal to play at the Emirates this weekend, with all three points absolutely critical in the Gunners’ plot to secure another Champions League place next season, it would probably be Newcastle United.

They have nothing to play for and their form has been nothing short of dreadful since the turn of the year. And the pressure is increasing on their manager Alan Pardew. The Mirror is reporting that he could be set for the sack at the end of the season, especially now that David Moyes is available. The owner Mike Ashley is apparently a big fan of what Moyes did at Everton and was hoping that Pardew could do the same for the Magpies.

Arsenal transfer pursuit of Remy could be doomed

A lot is riding on whether Arsenal can finish the season strongly and hold off the Champions League charge of Everton and Spurs(lol couldn’t resist a little joke). As well as the stress levels and happiness of all of us long-suffering fans, the summer transfer business could be dependent on which of the European competitions the Gunners are in.

There is no suggestion that this is why the transfer of Loic Remy is in danger, but something has given the manager of his current club, Newcastle United, a reason to be confident and optimistic of still having Remy at St. James’ Park next season, as revealed in a Guardian report.

Was Arsenal scout in Newcastle for Cabaye or Remy?

Arsenal have been linked with both Loic Remy and Yohan Cabaye in the recent past. They are both French after all. It did look like the midfielder would be on his way from Newcastle to the Emirates earlier in the season after it was reported that Arsene Wenger had made a bid, but as we know it did not happen, but the local press in Newcastle seem to think that the move could be back on in January.

Newcastle have got no chance of Arsenal selling them Vermaelen!

With the Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen being largely in the shadows this season, having started only two League Cup games, you could tell that speculation over his future was not far away. According to a recent report, the Belgian international will be subject to a January bid from fellow Premier League side Newcastle United.

The report from the Daily Star also goes on to say that Joe Kinnear, Newcastle’s director of football, has been keeping a close eye on the Gunners’ skipper for quite some time now and has been urging Magpies’ boss Alan Pardew to make a move for the Belgian defender once the transfer window reopens at the start of the new year.
