Arsene Wenger is well aware that Luis Suarez is not a bad little player, having tried and failed to bring him to Arsenal in the summer. And he has been speaking about the controversial Uruguayan striker in the build up to the Gunners’ trip to face Liverpool on Saturday afternoon.
In the interview, reported by Arsenal.com, the Frenchman played down any suggestion that he might try again to sign Suarez in the summer, preferring to concentrate on how Arsenal will go about doing the double over Brendan Rodgers. The Gunners are the only Premier League team to shut out the SAS pairing when they have started and doing so again would probably see us win the game. But keeping out the league’s most potent strike partnership is not going to be easy, so how do we do it? .......Read the full article here
Because of the hamstring injury suffered by Lukas Podolski earlier in the season, Arsenal have just two German internationals in contention to play the friendly against England at Wembley tomorrow night. The Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has been praising one of them, Mesut Ozil, ahead of the game, but he is worried about the wrong man.
The England international told the Daily Mirror, “He’s a clever player, he doesn’t stick to one position.
“He moves along the line and behind opposition midfield and can score and assist goals so he is a fantastic players and a test for us to deal with.” .......Read the full article here
After a disappointing League Cup exit at the hands of London rivals Chelsea, Arsenal welcome high-flying Liverpool to the Emirates stadium on Saturday. The Gunners will be looking to quickly bounce back from the midweek defeat but will have their hands full against a Liverpool side buoyed by the goal-scoring exploits of Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez. .......Read the full article here
It may be a bit simplistic to say, but Arsenal would probably not have lost the last two home games, against Dortmund and Chelsea, if they had not made key defensive errors. These proved very costly, just as they did last season, but in general the Gunners defensive pairing of Mertesacker and Koscielny have cut these out.
The man their performances are keeping out of the team, Thomas Vermaelen, has some encouraging words for Arsenal fans. He feels that the Gunners have what it takes to keep out the Premier League’s top scoring striker pairing of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge (The SAS!), as long as we don’t make any more of those errors, according to a Sky Sports report. The Belgian is not taking them lightly, he knows their qualities well, but he has faith in his team mates. .......Read the full article here
We all know that Olivier Giroud is doing much better for both Arsenal and France this year, and his headed goal against Crystal Palace on Saturday took him level with the goal machine that is Aaron Ramsey, at least as far as Premier League goals are concerned. Strangely, the two are also locked on the number of goal assists in the league with four each. With Mesut Ozil also in the top five on the assist table, it is easy to see why only Manchester City have scored more goals than the Gunners. .......Read the full article here
Aaron Ramsey has been a revelation for Arsenal since the latter part of last season, and the young Welshman was a huge part of the Gunners late surge which saw them overhaul north London rivals Tottenham for the final Champions League spot. Ramsey’s performances then were not getting a huge amount of attention, but by adding goals to his game, the midfielder has become the talk of the town, so just how good is he? .......Read the full article here
Arsenal could return for Suarez in January! by Ash
Arsenal had arguably one of the best transfer windows in a long time when you look at their recent history, because for once we managed to retain all of our good quality players, whilst also spending correctly and although perhaps not efficiently, overall we made some very good additions in some important areas. .......Read the full article here
It does not take a genius to work out that Christian Benteke would love to play for Arsenal Football Club. The 22-year old was talking about the Gunners after signing for Aston Villa from Genk on the last day of the transfer window last summer. His words could actually have caused some problems with the Birmingham club’s fans, but once he started playing and knocking the goals in, the Villa fans soon forgot about all that. It was clear back then, however, that he was not intending to be a Villa player for too long. .......Read the full article here
Theo Walcott is proving his value to Arsenal with his goalscoring this season, whether playing from the right or through the middle, and he could be given the chance to show what he can do for England this week. The visit of Brazil to Wembley on Wednesday is a real glamour tie, and Walcott’s hopes of getting the chance to score were given a boost today from Daniel Sturridge. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal vs Liverpool preview, predicted match line up and score line prediction. by KJ
After two wins on the bounce, many Arsenal fans are starting to feel ever so slightly comfortable with the team again and it’s got a big test today against an in form Liverpool. It’s all nice and good winning against the likes of West Ham and Brighton but home games against Liverpool are the ones that will decide whether we get into the top 4 or not. .......Read the full article here
Don’t worry Arsenal fans, Arsene Wenger is not just sitting on his hands while rival teams snap up players like Demba Ba, Lewis Holtby and Daniel Sturridge. Arsenal are like a cheetah on the African savannah, lying in wait, coiled like a spring ready to pounce. Any old antelope won’t do, however. We are waiting for the juiciest, most succulent prey to come along. The only problem is, we might starve to death before that happens.
The situations of Chelsea’s Daniel Sturridge and our own Theo Walcott are very similar. They are both unsettled at their present clubs seemingly because they are both being used as wingers but are both adamant that they have a godgiven right to be deployed as an out-and-out striker.
Liverpool are definitely in the market for another striker and the rumours are saying that they want either Walcott or Sturridge to move up Merseyside in January, but with the Arsenal man not wanting to leave London there is surely more probability that he would prefer a move to our London neighbours, and perhaps Chelsea would allow Sturridge to move to the Emirates in exchange. .......Read the full article here
