Schneiderlin WILL transfer to Arsenal but NOT this month!

If this latest Arsenal transfer rumour is true and that Arsene Wenger has already agreed a transfer deal to bring the Southampton and France international star Morgan Schneiderlin to the Emirates, it could have big repercussions for what happens with the Gunners in the January transfer window, and consequently could have ramifications for the rest of the current season.

How FA cup replays could HELP Arsenal

Arsenal hoping for help from FA cup replays by Sam P

Arsenal will have our own FA cup game to worry about soon, with a trip to face an in-form Brighton for a place in the fifth round as the Gunners attempt to defend the FA cup trophy we won at Wembley in May. But for new we can relax after breezing past last season’s beaten finalists Hull in the third round, also avoiding the dreaded replay that no team wants unless you are losing in the final minutes.

How long will Alexis be positive as Arsenal struggle?

Alexis starting to regret his Arsenal transfer? by DN

The Arsenal and Chile international star Alexis Sanchez must have expected a bit more from his new club when he made the decision to snub Liverpool and come to us instead after deciding to leave La Liga and Barcelona behind. With players like Mesut Ozil in the team and with Arsene Wenger finally starting to make the big money transfer moves, Alexis would at the very least expected the Gunners to put up a decent challenge for the Premier League title.

Arsenal KNOW consistency is VITAL but have NOT found it!!

It is the halfway stage of the domestic season for Arsenal and our Premier League rivals and, while the Gunners finally seem to be hitting a bit of form and consistency, it is too early to say that we have put the troubles and struggles of the first half of the season behind us.

Arsene Wenger has often spoke about consistency being vital in the long format of a league campaign and in the past Arsenal have often managed to go on long winning or unbeaten runs, but that has been distinctly lacking this season. And in an interview reported by the Daily Mail, our new striker Danny Welbeck has been talking about the importance of not letting the current run falter as we have done previously.

How will Arsenal cope with Ramsey injury setback?

When the Arsenal and Wales international Aaron Ramsey picked up his latest injury problem, a hamstring strain, about three weeks ago, it was originally not thought to be too bad. It was terrible news for the Gunners of course, especially as Rambo had found his shooting boots in spectacular style with that amazing goal away to Galatasaray. But the injury was supposed to be a minor one and there was a good chance of him recovering in time for the festive period.

Why Arsenal need to move fast on Schneiderlin transfer

Arsenal need to win away to Liverpool later today in order to go level on points with Southampton after Ronald Koeman’s team cruised to a 3-0 win over Everton yesterday. THat ended a dreadful run for the Saints but hopefully Arsenal will still be able to overtake them before we meet at St. Mary’s on New Years Day.

And once we have beaten them on their own ground (hopefully) then I think that Arsene Wenger needs to bang in an offer for their France international midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin. And I think it is important to try to get the transfer done early if possible for a couple of very good reasons.

Arsenal can use Saints struggles to seal Schneiderlin transfer!

It was back at the start of December and Arsenal seemed to be heading for another disappointing draw at the Emirates stadium. You could say that our opponents that day were unlucky, as Southampton had to play the last 10 minutes with 10 men after picking up an injury having used all their subs. But we should have had a penalty for handball seconds before Alexis grabbed the last minute winner.

Schneiderlin snubs contract to move closer to Arsenal transfer!!

There is some very good news for Arsenal fans who are hoping that Morgan Schneiderlin is the player that Arsene Wenger signs in the January transfer window to shore up our fragile midfield. The France international, who was keen to move to a bigger club in the summer, seems to be no keener to remain at St. Mary’s despite their excellent start to the season.

Should Arsenal worry about `lucky` Man United results?

One of the few redeeming features about the way Arsenal have stuttered, started and stopped so far this season is that, apart from Chelsea, none of our big Premier League rivals were punishing us. So despite being a massive 12 points worse off than we were at this point of last season, the Gunners went into the weekend just a point or two outside of the top four and with the likes of Liverpool, Man United, Everton and Tottenham not really giving us much to worry about.

Arsenal pass-master feels Saints win sets `Perfect` example!

It was not too long ago that Arsenal were doing a lot of things right and still not getting the points we thought that deserved. Arsene Wenger suggested that his team were very close to clicking and although bad luck was a big factor, a few tweaks to the balance of our play was all that was needed for the results to start flowing.

That balance has certainly shifted a bit more towards caution and solidity in defence since then, with three clean sheets in a row testament to that. Arsenal have not been quite so dangerous at the other end, but we have still scored in every one of our last 10 games, since the trip to Stamford Bridge when we should have had a penalty.

Gibbs predicts MASSIVE future for Arsenal team mate! But where?

Because of the amount of Arsenal players that have been in and out of the treatment room and therefore the available squad already this season, our new summer signing Calum Chambers has had plenty of opportunity to impress Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal fans following his transfer from Southampton in the summer.

The 19-year old has already proved his versatility, impressing at centre back and right back and he might even get a chance to show what he can do against his former club at left back tonight, with both of the first choice left backs facing late fitness tests.

Why Arsenal owe Man City thanks for 2 BIG favours!!

Arsenal should thank Man City by Sam P

I know that I am one of the more optimistic fans in the global Arsenal family and I am definitely in the minority here, but I have not yet given up on the Gunners winning the Premier League title. I know that Chelsea looked unstoppable while Arsenal were dropping further and further behind, but last season showed that the lead can change hands quite easily and a good run or bad run of games can have a huge effect.
