Official teams and preview of Brighton v Arsenal

Arsenal have been handed a fantastic bonus and a great chance to defend the FA cup trophy we won in that dramatic Wembley final back in May last year, with the magic of the cup waving it’s wand and getting rid of Chelsea, Man City and Tottenham for us in a crazy day of cup shocks.

But yesterday was also a warning to big clubs like us that we should not take anything for granted. Hopefully the players will have taken this and previous warnings from Arsene Wenger fully on board and will make sure that there are no shocks at the Amex Stadium in Brighton today.

Pick your Arsenal team to beat Brighton

Arsenal v Brighton & Hove Albion – Team prediction by Moh

Arsenal will be traveling to Brighton in the fourth round of the FA cup today and coming back from a fantastic 0-2 win against Man City, this should on paper be an easy game for the Gunners. We faced them a couple of years ago and we won by a narrow 2-3 win and went through to the next round. Brighton were a much better side back then and fighting for promotion to the Premier League. This season they are on the lower half of the table and look set to playing another season in the Championship.

Szczesny needs to train harder to win his Arsenal place back

Arsenal debate – Does Szczesny need to man up? by JO

Over the past few weeks Arsenal fans have been treated to a positive change of fortunes with great results in wins against Hull City, Stoke and latest victims Manchester City. My guess is all Arsenal fans have enjoyed this and we can only hope that it continues for as long as we keep moving up the table.

Should Arsenal recall Szczesny for Man City clash?

The Polish shot-stopper Wojciech Szczesny has been on the bench since his howlers against Southampton – followed by the badly-timed smoking incident, but Arsene Wenger has repeatedly said that Szczesny is still considered to be Arsenal’s Number One keeper.

With that in mind, Wenger may decide that the 23 year-old has served his punishment and theenforced rest may have made him realise that he has to up his performance if he is to retain his place, although Wenger refused to confirm his decision one way or the other. When asked in the pre-match conference who would get the nod against Man City, Le Prof said: “I have not decided yet. Ospina has done well.

Is Szczesny just a scapegoat for Arsenal’s problems?

There has been a mountain of paper used and bandwidth taken up with talk about Wojciech Szczesny’s display against Southampton when Arsenal were beaten 2-0 after some comical work by the Pole, not to mention the fact he got caught smoking afterwards.

First of all Szczesny’s father (an ex-Poland keeper) gave his angry response to his son’s treatment after the match, and now the legendary Polish goalkeeper Jan Tomaszewski says that Arsene Wenger is simply making a scapegoat of Szczesny to cover his own failings.

THREE reasons why Arsenal MUST drop Szczesny!

It seems as though the Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny is another one of those talented young players who just cannot stay out of trouble. The reports of the Polish international smoking in the showers comes at the back of a disastrous performance against Southampton and one can begin to speculate about the future of the outspoken Pole with both his behaviour and performances coming into question.

Come on Wenger! Arsenal need transfer help NOW!

Wenger’s transfer dithering could cost Arsenal dearly by DN

Here we are again Arsenal fans, with seemingly everyone in the world of football except Arsene Wenger thinking that the Gunners are teetering on the brink of a disaster and needing some quick action in the January transfer window in order to avert it.

We have the tough test of Stoke City on Sunday and then the even tougher trip to Man City the following week and there is still no sign of any new players coming in to bolster our injury stretched side. Arsenal are literally one injury away from a real nightmare and if we happen to lose either Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny or Calum Chambers, that nightmare will be upon us.

Bob Wilson backs Szczesny to stay as Arsenal’s Number One

Wojciech Szczesny has faced the anger of Arsenal fans after his blunders in the 2-0 defeat at Southampton last week, and annoyed Arsene Wenger even further when he was caught having a sneaky fag in the showers after the match, and the consensus seems to agree that he should be dropped in favour of David Ospina for a while.

But the legendary Arsenal keeper Bob Wilson, who made over 300 appearances for us over 11 years, is adamant that the young Pole should retain his place in the Gunners first team, based on past performances.

Szczesny’s Dad SLAMS the Arsenal defence (a disaster!)

The Arsenal defence is a disaster? by Sam P

There has been numerous Arsenal rumours surrounding the performance of Wojciech Szczesny against Southampton, and whether Arsene Wenger will be dropping the young Pole to the bench as punishment for his dismal display.

But Szczesny’s father has leapt to his son’s defence and even goes so far to call Per Mertesacker a rhinocerous! Maciej Szczesny was quoted as saying on Yahoo: “He made a mistake for the first Southampton goal, coming too far from the goal, but please look at the Arsenal defence – how these guys are playing is a disaster, but for some reason, nobody pays any attention to it.

Arsenal to bring Szczesny back for Stoke clash?

There is an interesting report from the Guardian last night that sounds like the reporter has been speaking directly to Wojciech Szczesny for his thoughts on whether he will be dropped by Arsenal next week in favour of David Ospina.

Here are a few quotes from the report to illustrate whyI think it has come straight from the Polish keeper:

Wojciech Szczesny expects to regain his place in the Arsenal team to face Stoke City on Sunday, despite the furore over him smoking a cigarette in the shower area of the dressing room after his most recent appearance…

Arsenal to replace Szczesny with Petr Cech?

Szczesny smokingThere are very few Arsenal fans that would turn down the chance to sign Petr Cech from Chelsea, especially considering the blunders from Wojciech Szczesny this season, and according to an Express report today this is a possible scenario.

It was reported that Arsene Wenger was extremely angry with the Polish stopper after the Southampton defeat, which wasn’t helped by Wenger catching Szczesny having a cigarette after the game, for which the Mail says he was fined £20,000. Maybe this could be the last straw for Wenger and it could be that he could be interested in one of the safest pair of hands in the Premier League.

Forget a new DM – Arsenal need a new manager!

Forget a new DM, a new manager and a new keeper are much more needed at Arsenal. I don’t know where to begin. Szczesny is the devil. He was worthless. Helpless. De Gea carries Man United by himself, while our keeper does everything he can to sink us. He is plain terrible.

Sanchez may not stay here for long. He tries, but doing it on himself is not going to happen against all teams. An average Southampton side beat us with ease, not because they are good, but because we cannot defend at all.
