Is Arsenal boss right to go all out to beat Man City?

In his press conference before Arsenal host Man City at the Emirates tomorrow, Arsene Wenger declared that he would be sending the Gunners out with every intention of claiming a morale boosting victory over the reigning Premier League champions.

As reported by Arsenal.com, the Frenchman is not really concerned about the league table at this early point in the season. He is more concerned with making sure that Arsenal do not suffer from the same problems against the big teams that we did last season, when many people thought that our failure in those games was the main reason for the title challenge faltering in the latter half of the season.

Arsenal captains roast the Spuds over Welbeck transfer!!

This is priceless for Arsenal fans, while at the same time will have the twerps from Tottenham grinding their teeth in frustration. Because the Arsenal captain and vice-captain have revealed that it was their intervention that caused Arsenal to hijack the transfer of Danny Welbeck from Man United on transfer deadline day.

The story, reported by the Daily Star, is that the Spuds were the only club in the running for the England striker and were poised to secure his services on a year long loan deal, until he bumped into Mikel Arteta and Per Mertesacker.

Arsenal face a daunting month ahead after the international break

Month of September will be crucial to Arsenal’s season by SE

After enjoying a slick start to their season, with wins over Manchester City in the FA Community Shield and Crystal Palace in the Premier League opener, Arsenal just had a slight dip in form towards the end of August. That, however, didn’t impede them from progressing to the Champions League group stages for the 17th year running, and remain unbeaten in the league, albeit two draws in a row will hurt Arsenal.

Arsenal should use Vermaelen to gain unhappy Man United striker

There has been many Arsenal rumours linking the Belgian defender Thomas Vermaelen with a move to Manchester United, and with just 12 months left on his contract at the Emirates it would seem uneconomical of Arsene Wenger to force the 28 year-old to stay against his wishes.

Having said that, it would seem reasonable for Arsenal to allow Vermaelen to join Manchester United, but only if the Red Devils let us have one of their unhappy stars to move the other way. And of course I am talking about Javier Hernandez, who was left out in the cold at United last season despite his undoubted ability to score crucial goals.

Kaboul to Arsenal? No thanks but we’ll have Vertonghen

After reading the latest Arsenal transfer rumour this morning, I did have to check that it was April’s fools day yesterday, not today. The story, reported by Metro and others, is that the Tottenham central defender Younes Kaboul is ready to repeat the actions of Sol Campbell and swap his lilywhite shirt for the red and white of Arsenal. Assuming that Thomas Vermaelen is going to leave, the Gunners will need another centre back.

Can Arsenal really relax about Champions League spot?

Do Arsenal really have a top four place confirmed? by Ash

After beating our great North London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur in a 1-0 at White Hart Lane on Sunday, there have been a few suggestions that Arsenal have confirmed a top four finish with 5th placed Spurs currently sitting 9 points behind. A win for Arsenal has placed us back into the top three, level on points with Liverpool, however I still think there is a little more left to be considered that what the media has given us.

Arsenal star ready for `special fight` against Tottenham

Podolski’s looking forward to the North London derby, are you? by Ash

Lukas Podolski is the first Arsenal player to speak out ahead of another critical game for the Gunners this season, this one being the North London derby at Tottenham. Having already beaten the opposition once at the Emirates in the league already this season, and another win in the FA Cup, Arsenal will now attempt to take all three points away from White Hart Lane for the first time since 2007.

One trophy will set Arsenal in right direction says Arteta

After this week’s Champions League exit, Arsenal have just two competitions left to worry about. But we are normally out of everything and struggling to get in the top four by this point in a season so it is great to be in this situation.

The Gunners vice-captain Mikel Arteta is certainly enjoying it, despite the disappointment of losing out to Bayern Munich. But the Spaniard is also aware that the pressure is firmly on Arsenal to win the FA cup and it would be a real downer if we fail. As reported by Arsenal.com, Arteta also feels that the club, players and fans really need that first bit of silverware to set us on the right path for the years to come.

Have Arsenal got ANY players left for Tottenham FA cup clash?

In just three days time, Arsenal have a massive game against Tottenham in the FA cup. A few weeks ago this looked like a banker home win for the Gunners. Spurs were in turmoil and Arsenal were sweeping all before them, but things in football can change quicker than Clark Kent in a phone box.

The Gunners have come back well from a tough run of disappointing results, but the problem now is the injury list. With Giroud out, Podolski struggled and Bendtner, who did well and scored a crucial goal, also picked up an injury that ruled him out of the FA cup game.

Can Arsenal say goodbye to challenge from Spurs and United?

As Arsenal got straight back into the groove with a win against Southampton at the weekend, the Premier League title race is really starting to take shape. And it is looking good for the Gunners, not just because of our own form, but because of the poor performances of two of our biggest rivals, Manchester United and Tottenham.

Tottenham were not just beaten by Manchester City, they were subjected to the kind of beating that could well damage their team morale and and put a giant spanner in the works of their season. It is extra special for Arsenal fans of course, because of the local rivalry, but in practical terms it should mean that we have one less team to worry about.

Arsenal executive’s `rivals` jibe at Tottenham is bang on!

‘Tottenham aren’t Arsenal’s rivals’ suggests Gazids! by Ash

Arsenal spokesman and chief executive Ivan Gazids is often facing the rebellions of Arsenal fans when it comes to his position at the club and the action, or perhaps lack of action, and influence he seems to have in this club, but for once he has actually got the Arsenal faithful on his side by taunting local rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
