Is Giroud Arsenal’s very own Diego Costa?

The French centre-forward Olivier Giroud is adamant that he can prove to Arsenal fans that he is as good as Chelsea’s Costa or Man City’s Aguero, and is trying to convince Arsene Wenger that he has no need to go for Jackson Martinez to bolster the Gunners forward line.

He told L’Equipe: “I don’t have an inferiority complex. I don’t have their name, but – in terms of stats – I am just behind Costa and Aguero,”

My strongest Arsenal team to destroy Monaco – What is yours?

So there is just one more day to go before Arsenal’s crucial first leg tie against Monaco and we are all aware of our opponents defensive capabilities. But we also know about our own attacking prowess and I am gong to choose a team that should easily break down the French teams defence.

First of all I am hoping above all that David Ospina has recovered fully from his back strain sustained against Palace. I have a terrible feeling that if Szczesny plays we will definitely concede….

Should Arsenal now rest Alexis until Champions League?

It was not just the swelling of the knee caused by Alexis Sanchez getting a heavy tackle as Arsenal struggled to beat Leicester City last week that has caused concern for Arsene Wenger this week. The Frenchman also revealed that he was a bit worried about the impact that the Chile international star was having on the game prior to picking up his injury.

Wenger was hoping that missing a few games could be just what our star man needs to rediscover the intensity that was such a big part of his game. Alexis is undoubtedly talented but it has been the amazing work rate, used in tracking back and closing players down as well as causing problems going forward that has elevated the summer signing from Barcelona into the top ranks of footballers.

Wenger confirms Top Four is ALWAYS Arsenal’s main target

Ever since Arsene Wenger arrived at Arsenal, way back in the midst of time, Le Prof has always managed to keep the Gunners in the Top Four of the Premier League which will now forever more be known as The Wenger Trophy. Even though he has always won that race, the Gunners just managed to win their first real trophy for nine years last season beating Hull in the FA Cup Final.

A summary of Arsenal’s roller-coaster season…..so far

The Season so Far…… by BG

So began Arsenal’s season on the 19th of July with a friendly match against BorehamWood; all of us eager to see the boys in action and working that rust off. To mention, some still recovering from the weariness of the World Cup, which eventually became a excuse of doom for the loan transfer of Podolski to Inter Milan. After a decent reality check on the fitness of the team and its integral structure, the next challenge on the road to the season was the Match against New York Red Bulls; with a losing score line of 1-0.

An Arsenal fan’s response to Piers Morgan!

Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater by Big Gun

It seems that every time we lose a game, even after having a decent run of wins, we have fans calling for Wenger’s head. I would like to put things into perspective a little here and show just why this type of mentality is wrong. This hatred toward Wenger is based on the presupposition that from 2005 up until now, Arsenal have been unsuccessful. One might only have to look at our trophy cabinet to confirm this…but our trophy cabinet does not speak the whole truth.

Arsenal need to bounce back against Leicester (with Alexis back!)

After five wins in a row before this weekend, it obviously came as a bit of a shock to lose to our great rivals Tottenham on Saturday, but luckily the players won’t have time to wallow in their misery as they have to pick themselves up quickly for the visit of Leicester tomorrow evening.

Wenger will be keen for the defence to iron out their lapses of concentration during the Spurs game, but Le Prof is hoping to see a strong response from his whole team on Tuesday. “It’s not the first time we lose a game, but how we bounce back is to take the information from what we got today, and respond very quickly on Tuesday,” he said on the Arsenal website.

Arsenal boss must be firm and NOT play Alexis v Spurs

You have got to love the Arsenal and Chile international star Alexis Sanchez! Well, as long as you are not having to play against the supremely talented duracell bunny that is. Not only will he never give up on the pitch, but now you cannot even stop him when he is injured and supposed to be resting.

Having got used to the idea of him being not quite ready to make his return to the pitch, a Sky Sports report has revealed that he is actually pushing for a place in the starting line-up against the spuds.

Can an Arsenal Player win the PFA Player-of-Year award?

Can Santiago Cazorla win the PFA Player of the Year Award? By Twig

The last time an Arsenal player won the PFA player of the year award was since Robin van Persie which feels like it was very long ago. This season, the two Arsenal players who seem closest to this award are Alexis Sanchez and Santi Cazorla.

Alexis OUT! How will Arsenal cope against Tottenham?

The latest news from Arsenal on the injury situation is not entirely unexpected but it is still a heavy blow to take, especially with Saturday’s trip to White Hart Lane for the north London derby having extra significance with our relative positions in the Premier League table.

An Arsenal.com report has revealed that Arsene Wenger will not be able to call on his star man Alexis Sanchez against the spuds. The news is not too bad as the Frenchman explained that our Chile international is back in light training and may be available for the home game with Leicester on Tuesday, but Saturday is too soon. However, we do have the England international forward Danny Welbeck back and the news on Wilshere, Chamberlain and Gnabry is good.

It’s Official – Arsenal are NOT a one-man team!

One-Man Team? What One-Man Team?! by Uche

Hello there folks. Still celebrating the Aston Villa assault? Of course you are you drunken Gunners! Boy what a win! Correct me if I am wrong but Arsenal have not scored five goals in a game in… like a century! We played that game like it was a training ground exercise and it could have end up being 9-0. And we did it all without Alexis Sanchez in the side.

Wenger – Arsenal have found form, consistency and confidence!

Arsenal were electrifying in yesterday’s 5-0 win over Aston Villa, and it was brilliant to see the returning duo of Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott clicking straight away and playing like they had never been injured in the first place.

Arsene Wenger was understandably delighted to see the Gunners win their fourth game in a row without conceding, and believes that the squad is now nearly at the top of their game. Le Prof said on Arsenal Player after the game: “We scored goals and didn’t concede. Our offensive game was good even though I believe we had some weaker periods in the game when Aston Villa were in possession. We always looked dangerous when we got in between their lines and defensively we were sound as well.
