Arsenal should go for this hot young English striker!

Arsenal must get Connor Wickham or someone else will! By Twig

One of Wenger’s trademarks is the ability to spot young and obscure talents and mould them into fine footballers with Arsenal. He did it with Nikolas Anelka, Thierry Henry and quite recently with Theo Walcott. It must also be the motivation behind the signing of the injury prone Yaya Sanogo, who had put in a number of fine performances for the France U21, even though fans were baying for the already world class Luis Suarez.

Ozil says he’s ready but should Arsenal start him at Stoke?

The record signing of Arsenal Football Club has been the subject of great speculation in the media and among fans recently. His performances have been studied from all sorts of angles to analyse why his performances had dropped off recently and nobody was surprised when Arsene Wenger left him out of the matchday squad for last weekend’s home game against Sunderland.

But Wenger claimed it was due to an injury picked up in the match against Bayern Munich, which did raise a few eyebrows and cause a few beards to be stroked. Stats have been produced to show that Ozil’s sprints per game have been falling away dramatically since the new year and so it was assumed that he needed a rest and the dead leg suggestion was just an excuse.

Giroud’s problems could be the making of him at Arsenal

It is too early to judge after just one game back in the Arsenal starting line-up, but Olivier Giroud looked like a different player to the one who has been struggling recently. What we saw was the Giroud who started the season so well and made all his critics start to eat their words. And if he can keep it up, the French striker could be instrumental in the Gunners ending their trophy drought and his future at Arsenal will be secure.

Free flowing Arsenal delight Wenger and honour Bergkamp

There are still plenty of people who want to shoot Arsenal down, but Arsene Wenger and his players did not give them much ammunition yesterday. The best that the doubters could muster was that Sunderland were not very good. Maybe not, but we did not give them a chance to be.

Right from the start, Arsenal were crisp and creative in possession and cool, calm and collected in defence. The first three goals were top quality and so was a lot of our play. So it is no surprise to read, in a Sky Sports report, the manager waxing lyrical about his team.

Predict Arsenal result to win exclusive T-shirt

Okay Arsenal fans, it is competition time again. After the highs and lows of the FA cup and Champions League games, the Gunners are back to their bread and butter of the Premier League today. And with Chelsea with a potentially difficult home game against Everton, Arsenal have an opportunity to go back to the top of the table.

Sunderland at the Emirates should mean all three points in the bank, but this season has thrown up twists and turns along the way. Many of us will be expecting a good win and if you can predict three things about the result of the game you could be celebrating in style, sporting an exclusive Just Arsenal T-shirt.

Arsenal star is only 85 percent but is getting there

Jack Wilshere got a full 90 minutes under his belt against Sunderland on Saturday, which is great news for him, Arsenal and the England national side. Still only 21-years old, the pressure and expectation on Jack is massive, but some recent below par performances are not due to that, he insists, but because he has still not got his full match fitness back.

Wilshere told the Mirror, “I’d probably say I’m 85-90 percent fit, I’ve not played many 90 minutes.

“I came off for Arsenal against Tottenham because I was ill, and I got two 60 minutes under my belt for England.

A match full of controversy saw Arsenal beat Sunderland by 3 goals to 1 thanks to goals from Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey, but the game was not as easy or clear cut as the scoreline suggests. Here is this weekend’s match report infographic:

Predict the score against Sunderland and win a JustArsenal T-Shirt

Arsenal fans are set to see the debut of our new super-signing Mesut Ozil this weekend at the Stadium of Light and he couldn’t really hope for an easier team to face. The Black Cats have gained just one point this season and in fact haven’t won any of their last seven League games, and were embarrassed 3-1 by newly-promoted Crystal Palace last time out.

So I am fully expecting another three points this week, and I am happy to say that we will now have a weekly competition (all this season) to win a brand new, limited edition, stunningly fashionable JustArsenal T-Shirt!

Arsenal MUST avoid repeat of last year’s international hangover

An away trip to face Sunderland at the Stadium of Light is not the scariest of prospects for an in form Arsenal team. The Wearsiders form is not exactly awe inspiring either, with defeats to fellow strugglers Fulham and Crystal Palce and a draw at Southampton so far in the league. They do have a home win, but that was against MK Dons in the Capital One cup.

All in all, you would think that Arsene Wenger does not have too much cause for concern, unless he reads the article in today’s Mirror about what happened at the same stage last season. The Gunners went into the international break in fine form, having lost just one game, somewhat unluckily against high flying Chelsea.

Flamini even BETTER than when he first left Arsenal

Flamini was a great tactical signing by Arsenal! by AH

When Arsenal made the announcement that Arsene Wenger had decided to resign Mathieu Flamini on a three year deal, a lot of Arsenal fans quickly threw their arms in the air and wondered what an earth was going on at our great club. And rightly so, we were disillusioned and nothing was going the way it was planned to, however a few weeks on and suddenly many of us view a different approach towards Flamini.

Arsenal players have an excellent International break

Phew, the interlull is over and it appears that Arsenal’s international players have come through it unscathed. Theo Walcott was the victim of a painful looking tackle to his achilles, but he played on for quite a while before being replaced. He was limping a bit when he came off, and it would have been painful but there shouldn’t be any lasting damage.

Arsenal hope that Hull can persuade Bendtner to finally leave Emirates

Bendtner now off to Hull? by Ash

When will the madness surrounding Nicklas Bendtner end? Now the Arsenal deadwood striker is being linked with new Premier League side Hull City. Speculation has arisen that Steve Bruce is looking to sign the Denmark international striker this summer and he becomes the 10th (slight exaggeration) to do so, but will he be able to provide the pompous striker with what he wants?
