Can this Arsenal side really win the Premier League?

Arsenal – genuine title contenders? by SE

It would not be an anomaly to call Arsenal as one of this season’s genuine contenders for the Premier League title, in addition to Man City, Chelsea and Liverpool. And, one of the reasons for that has to be the kind of squad Wenger possesses; Yes, Arsenal could well do with a Fernando or a Matic kind of a defensive midfielder but, still, the North Londoners have reinforced their squad in the best possible way, and the new signings have looked good, too.

Chamberlain says Arsenal now BELIEVE they can win more trophies

The Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain believes that last seasons FA Cup win will be the catalyst for the Gunners to go on and win more trophies, as the team now has the belief (and the new players!) to carry on the “winning momentum”.

Chamberlain said: “When there’s a lot of talk about a team that should or could be winning things and it’s not happening it can become a little bit frustrating,”

“There’s been a little bit of negative media about Arsenal in recent years but we always believed we would win a trophy soon and the squad we’re putting together could do it.”

What happened to Arsenal’s ‘English Core” – Only two go to World Cup

Last season Arsene Wenger made a big deal of Arsenal signing up his young British talents on long-term contracts, saying that they were going to be the çore’of the side that were going to go on to great things.

Wenger said last December: “We are delighted that these five young players have all signed new long-term contracts. The plan is to build a team around a strong basis of young players, in order to get them to develop their talent at the Club. Jack is certainly the best known, the leader of this group – but the other four players are exceptional footballers, and we’re very happy that we could conclude their new deals at the same time.

Why Oxlade-Chamberlain should start in every Arsenal game!

‘The Ox’ should ALWAYS start for Arsenal! by GunnerJack

When fit and well Chambo has got to start for Arsenal. And why is that?

The reason is that he is the only regular player in our midfield who has the power and accuracy to shoot from OUTSIDE the box and so add variety to our attack. As you will read below later a couple of our greatest enemies think this ability is vital.

Of course Poldi can also shoot and so can Mikel but I do not regard them as regulars. Mikel is also usually asked to play a more defensive role for us than with Everton (maybe people who criticise him should not forget that).

Arsenal Debate – Can The Ox become our new Fabregas one day?

Could The Ox Be Arsenal’s New Fabregas? by FD

What is it with modern day footballers? They all seem to want to play in the centre of the park. What happened to all the dashing wide players of yore? Nowadays it’s as if players are trying to stay as far away from the pitch side fans as possible.

Arsenal’s British core will guarantee future success

Arsenal haven’t had an easy time during the last few seasons, big players have left, captains have left two seasons in a row and every time a new season starts we find ourselves scratching our heads at why we have made another profit during the transfer window – and how we can possibly move forward like this?

I may not usually be an optimist when it comes to Arsenal but in time I think the British players we have in our team will learn to gel properly and create a core to the team that will become unrivalled in world football.

The Arsenal team to beat Man Utd – just add some fight and hard work!

How to beat United! by Big Gun

Arsenal should use The Ox, Podolski and Walcott as strikers. Leave Podolski as CF because Ox and Walcott are much better suited on the wings, they can use their speed more effectively. Let’s not forget, Ox is ambi-dexterous, so if he wants to cut in and have a shot, he can. He can cross equally well with his left foot.

The Arsenal team that can beat Everton?

How can we beat Everton by MS

The remaining matches of the season are all set to be nail biting stuff. We need to continue to win and Tottenham and Chelsea need to lose some. Next Tuesday is a very tough match with Everton, and here are my thoughts and I just wanted to see what people think.

Aston Villa v Arsenal – Player Ratings and Analysis

What Went Wrong? By Twig

After the midweek game against Montepellier, I had said that I was far from impressed. The team was static, lacked pace and had no penetration. The two goals we scored in the second half only masked what was otherwise a very mid-table performance. This is one of the slowest, most cumbersome Arsenal sides I’ve ever seen. Unless Walcott, Wilshere, Diaby or Arshavin (if you go by his masterclass against Reading) are playing, the team has no cutting edge and seems too laboured and ponderous. We’ve witnessed the same performance again today against a very average Villa side. Anyway, let’s analyse the performance of the following players:

Arsenal’s Abou Diaby out injured – Who should replace him?

The Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby has been injured for nearly the whole of his Arsenal career, but since his return at the beginning of the season he has been a revelation for the team and we were all looking forward to another Man-Of-The-Match performance against Chelsea yesterday.

But the Frenchman only lasted 17 minutes of the match before being taken off and replaced by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Wenger’s early prognosis is that he has a “muscular strain” and will be out for a “minimum three weeks”. Knowing Wenger’s awful record of predicting the return of players from injury perhaps we can expect a much longer period on the treatment table?

Wenger – Gnabry could be the next Oxlade-Chamberlain

Gnabry is our future-Wenger by TS

If there’s one thing Arsenal have never been short of over the last couple of years is talented youths and Serge Gnabry falls into the category without a doubt.

Arsene Wenger has even gone so far as to hail the youth starlet as Arsenal’s future.

The Arsenal boss admitted that the Germany youth international could even play for Arsenal’s first team as soon as this season. The starlet moved for Stuttgart last summer and has caught Wenger’s eye with a series of exceptional performances at under 18 and under21 level.

Arsenal to offer Oxlade-Chamberlain new contract by AM
