Where will Santi Cazorla fit in at Arsenal this season?

Cazorla’s involvement at Arsenal going forward? by TJ

Signed by Arsenal in the summer of 2012, Santi Cazorla turned out to become one of the most talented players the Gunners ever signed. When Santi first took the field for Arsenal against Sunderland, many were impressed by the talent of this little man. Fast, witty and hardworking, Santi Cazorla instantly established himself to be one of the fan favourites amongst the Arsenal faithful. He finished his first season with the gunners with a respectable 12 goals and 11 assists. In the 2012-2013 season, he was the heart of almost every Arsenal offense. He played in every premier league match that season and was the Arsenal player of the season that year.

Are Arsenal finally changing their Youth Policy?

Is the recent signings against our policy? by TJ

It is no surprise around the footballing world, especially at Arsenal, that nurturing young talent is the way to develop a sustainable and successful model. There are many positives in trusting and polishing young talents. Firstly, the startup capital is small as not much funds are required to acquire these talents. Secondly, if trust is being put into these young players, more often than not, they would prove to be more loyal to you and give their best on the pitch. They also tend not to want to leave the club and repay your faith in them.

Who else do Arsenal need in this transfer window?

The summer transfer window so far has been nothing short of a dream come true for Arsenal fans. With the signing of Chilean superstar Alexis Sanchez and the talented full back Debuchy, Arsenal has meant serious business in this transfer window. Needs were clearly addressed in these two signings.

We sorely needed a consistent and pacey left winger as seen from last season and we got that in Alexis. We also needed a replacement for Sagna who has decided to take his talents to the blue side of Manchester. We got that in Debuchy. The question now would be ‘Are we done yet in the window?’

Are Arsenal now ready to go all the way?

Are the gunners ready? by TJ

Many footballing fans around the world are expecting Arsenal to be one of the top teams in the coming season. With the signing of Alexis Sanchez, the superstar talents of Ozil and Ramsey and the breakthrough after winning the FA cup, many would expect this to be the season where Arsenal will finally deliver the much talked about major honours. Promise after promise and season after season, Arsenal have disappointed her fans for quite a while now. This time, Arsenal finally have the financial capability and the squad talent to fight for the major honours. Fighting is one thing, actually winning it is another. Are the gunners ready to start lifting the trophies?

Arsenal tactics – Is 4-4-2 the way to go next season?

Arsenal Should Lineup In A 4-4-2 Next Season By Rohan

The 4-4-2 has been the most successful formation in the history of football, and easily the most successful for Arsene Wenger at Arsenal. With this historic formation, Wenger has won three league titles, won four FA Cups, and of course managed and entire season without losing a game. Why not bring the 4-4-2 back? He now has the perfect collection of players and tools to do so.

Arsenal do NOT need another striker says Wenger – Is he right?


Hello everybody. I hope you are all doing great. I want to start by saying that if I had my way, Arsenal will have four first choice central strikers. But that is not realistic and there is the small matter of the British Football Association’s twenty five man squad rule.

We the fans want a lot of things but we don’t always think about the logistics behind making it all work. Wenger on the other hand is the man saddled with the responsibility of making it all work and I believe that is why he let Liverpool have Remy.

Wenger denies Arsenal need a new striker! You sure Arsene?

When a lot of last week’s Arsenal transfer rumours made it increasingly clear that Arsene Wenger had cooled his transfer interest in the France and QPR striker Loic Remy, I thought it must be because the Arsenal boss had his eye on someone else.

Apparently not, though, as a report in the Evening Standard reveals that the Prof is happy with his strike force, claiming that the club do not need to do any more to strengthen up front in the summer transfer window.

Wenger said, “Up front we don’t need any more. It’s not especially for numbers.

Can Arsenal cope until World Cup stars and Walcott return?

It is not just Arsenal who will struggle with their pre-season preparations, of course, because all of our Premier League rivals have had some of their players involved in the World Cup finals this summer, but not many will be having it any worse than the Gunners.

As revealed by an Arsenal.com report, Arsene Wenger has admitted that the fact that the players who were out in Brazil will be coming back in dribs and drabs is far from ideal, as he tries to get his Arsenal team ready for the start of the Premier League and a double header play-off to get into the Champions League group stage.

Sanchez’s versatility is key to Arsenal’s coming success

Sanchez’s versatility will do Arsenal a world of good by SE

There is this prevalent conundrum of what Arsene Wenger is trying to achieve, with the acquisition of Sanchez, when he already has players like Cazorla, Podolski and Rosicky – who can all play the role of Sanchez’s, effectively. And, Sanchez’s versatility, to play in almost every position in the final third for Arsenal, doesn’t make the job of disecting the conundrum any easier, either. However, what we can comprehend is that Wenger is still very much hungry for success, and, with the acquisition of such a dynamic player, he has probably learnt a thing or two about Arsenal’s ineptitude to get the job done last term.

In-depth analysis of Arsenal’s Giroud compared to Sanchez and Remy

Giroud the Scapegoat? – OG Compared (statistically) with Sanchez and Remy by Vince

Good day, all! Good times they are to be a Gooner! I should be preparing for my finals, but this is definitely more pressing haha!

Giroud has been heavily criticized and and dubbed as not being “good enough” to lead the Arsenal front line. In the 4-3-1 system we used last season, the lone striker must be a target man – capable of holding off defenders and bringing his team mates into play. Target men are still strikers however and need to test the goalkeeper and score. Lacking striking support, he should also be able to create chances on his own.

Two Down – Who will be next for Arsenal?

2 Done!! Who Next?? by AK_14

Arsenal for the first time in many years have done important bit of transfers early. Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy are very much needed for the current squad and will seamlessly go into the first team. With Sanchez being able to play anywhere in the front line we have with us a very versatile and hardworking player who has his best years yet to come. Debuchy on the other hand will be a direct replacement for Sagna who departed to Man Shitty. So now that the 2 of the 6 positions are filled, let’s see what is left

Why Ramsey will STILL be Arsenal’s main man!

If any other Arsenal players is going to beat the young Welshman Aaron Ramsey to a second Player of the Year award next May, they are going to have to have a stunning season. Because unless the 23-year old misses a major part of it through injury (please not again) then Rambo is going to be even more crucial to any success that Arsenal have than he was last time.

It was fitting that the central midfielder scored the winning goal that brought Arsenal the FA cup and ended a nine year wait since the last trophy. It was him that really got our season off and running after the opening day defeat at home to Aston Villa.
