FOUR reasons why Ozil is worth every penny to Arsenal

Ozil IS worth that much and more! by Iceman

Greetings fellow Gooners, first of all I would like to point out that this is my first article, but I am more than happy I waited till this very moment before I decided to express my literature skills on a very passionate and important moment for all Arsenal fans worldwide.

Adam Kemp – This summer just proves that Wenger MUST leave Arsenal

In life you get what you pay for, except if you’re an Arsenal Supporter! by Adam Kemp

As all the readers are probably aware, I have been as active in my posts as Arsenal has been in the transfer market this summer. I have bided my time and patiently pondered all the big name signings arriving at the Emirates. As of the 1st September 2013 Arsenal has acquired two signings on a free transfer. Initially Sanogo arrived with talk of being one for the future but now he is the second choice striker behind Giroud. The recent signing of the AC Milan reject genuinely repulses and angers me. All throughout Arsene’s cleverly worded press conferences, he states that the quality of the player comes first. Well the quality of Flamini is, without doubt, inferior to most of linked names this summer.

What Arsenal boss Ivan Gazidis really said…….

Why we need to be more realistic about what’s been said recently.

I’m writing this article now constantly scratching my head, with my hair falling down on my laptop, but I’m also going bald due to the stress of seeing us never comply with the words of our manager and the Arsenal board. What seems to worry me the most is these statements from “Our Hero Ivan” recently, (sarcasm of course). To be honest fellow Gooners I’m getting more worried every moment and minute I think about this, and it’s down to just reading the words as he has said them, a few quotes from him now and then the reasons why I’m extremely concerned and will use capitals with the words that scare me the most.

Arsenal Debate: Will Wenger really change his philosophy this summer?

History is the best predictor of the future… by Redneck

So then, what will be in store for the Gunner faithful this summer? Arsene has this massive 70 million warchest. There is absolutely no way that with that much money to spend, the pressure that has been building on the club, the high ticket prices, etc., we aren’t going to make a dramatic shift in philosophy and bring in some “top, top, top” players over the long break, right? I am inclined to say “no.”

The players Arsenal need to win the title next season….

What do Arsenal need this Summer to be title contenders by CJ

Arsenal are 18 points behind Man Utd and 5 points behind Man City, however both teams have a game in hand on us so the question is realistically how far, in footballing terms, we are behind Man Utd and Man City.

Wenger: Arsenal still have “hope” for the second leg….

It would be a very brave man that would bet on Arsenal to make it through to the next round of the Champions League after last night’s home defeat by Bayern Munich, and it seems that Arsene Wenger has surprisingly agreed with them, although he thinks there is a “hope” we can go through.

Wenger said: “Let’s not hide the truth: it will be extremely difficult against a team of that quality. They didn’t play two finals in the last three years without that quality that we have seen tonight. We have to give our best there and hope that everything will go for us and hope that by the second leg we have built our confidence up a bit more to go into the game with the belief that will be needed.

Wenger – Arsenal were nervous and we paid for it

Arsenal were thoroughly put in their place last night by an excellent Bayern Munich side, and itis now glaringly obvious that the Gunners can no longer compete at the top table, but (predictably) Arsene Wenger gave his side credit for their “battling” qualities, albeit after they were 2-0 down…..

He said after the game: “We played against a good team who took advantage of every opportunity they created in the first half. We had quite a good start for five minutes. You could see we were a a bit nervous, but Bayern was fully confident and we paid for it. At 2-0 down of course it became very difficult, but we put in a good battle in the second half and came back to 2-1.

Wenger – Arsenal are underdogs but I still trust our quality

Arsene Wenger has obviously been under a barrage of questions about tonights game against Bayern Munich, especially as the Germans have been in imperious form lately, while Arsenal were dumped out of the FA Cup by Championship side Blackburn.

Naturally the bookies have Bayern Munich hot favourites to get a result at the Emirates tonight, but with Wenger certain to field a completely different team than Saturday’s XI, he is hopeful that the Gunners still have the quality to get a result at home.

“We are the underdogs – you just need to read the English press to understand that,” Wenger said on Arsenal.com.

Vermaelen – Arsenal can beat anybody (but obviously not the Top Four!)

Club Captain Thomas Vermaelen comments by AH

Thomas Vermaelen has today told Arsenal.com that he has never doubted what this Gunners team are capable of.
Vermaelen told Arsenal player; “You could see it from the start of the season; this team has a lot of potential. It’s a case of everybody staying fit. We have enough quality in this team to beat anybody. I think you could see that in the games we played against top teams. We didn’t get the results but I think in some parts of the games we played well.”

Monreal sure he will fit in at Arsenal easily

Arsenal’s only signing of the transfer window, Nacho Monreal, is convinced that the Gunners style of play is similar to what he has been used to in Spain, and feels that having his old team-mate Santi Cazorla already in the squad will help him settle into the Premiership very quickly.

He said: “Arsenal like to keep the ball, which is beneficial for me and I like this part of the team’s game.

“I love playing with the ball at my feet, short, sharp touches, and good movement.

“I think Arsenal do have certain elements of the Spanish football philosophy.

It’s not easy for Arsenal to find quality players in January….

Being Realistic – By LmFaO

Let’s take a realistic look at the January Transfer Window. To start off with, Arsenal were looking in serious need of some firepower. Some real quality players. Many players were linked with Us over the last few weeks. Some of them being Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Adrian Lopez, Fernando Llorente, Edinson Cavani, David Villa, Mario Gotze, Stevan Jovetic, Mats Hummels and the list goes on… After a disastrous start to the month, the fans were screaming on top of their voice for some new signings, but to no avail.

Szczesny – Swansea are quality but Arsenal are confident of winning

The well-known Polish Gooner Wojciech Szczesny is (as always!) in a very confident mood going into todays clash against Swansea, despite the Welsh side being just one point behind the Gunners in the Premiership table.

The Swans have been very consistent in their first two seasons in the Premiership, and Woj has been very impressed with their attacking style and is under no illusion that it will be an easy game for Arsenal.
