Arsenal ARE improving! Problem is so are EPL rivals!

The situation for Arsenal could have been so much worse by now if it was not for the fact that almost every other club with hopes of winning the Premier League this year was also having problems. Only Chelsea have really lived up to the billing.

So while Arsenal have dropped way behind the league leaders, we have not found ourselves too far away from the top four and that infamous Wenger trophy is still well within our grasp. And the way our performances are getting better and the results are starting to come makes life look a lot rosier in the Arsenal camp.

Arsenal fans need to count their blessings and get a grip!

Following on from Big Gun’s sensible post about the state of Arsenal right now, I thought it was about time that JustArsenal’s Mr Admin should give a personal opinion. I have ALWAYS felt that EVERY fan is allowed to have an opinion and will let them publish or comment on the forum, but lately I am finding I am having to delete very personal abuse against other readers. This will NOT be tolerated. We are ALL Arsenal fans and are here to discuss Arsenal Football Club, not who has the biggest fists in the playground……

Arsenal’s errors highlight Wenger’s failures!

When will Arsenal stop shooting themselves in the foot?‏ by KM

We managed to blew the 3 points once again. Now I know Arsenal will not win all their games but it’s not the first time we make life difficult for ourselves. We conceded a goal because we lost the ball in our own half after it was in the hands of the keeper. Mertesacker’s pass wasn’t the best but Flamini certainly didn’t do much with the ball either. And this highlights the need of a good solid defensive midfielder.

Is Ox right about Arsenal starting to click?

It was a frustrating north London derby for Arsenal in many ways, but it could have been much worse, especially after Tottenham took the lead against the run of play. The visitors certainly put up a sterling effort to stop us from scoring, so finding a leveller took a great deal of desire and determination.

Arsenal v Spurs Confirmed Teams – Arteta plays – Ozil back on wing

“You enjoy it after the game if you win,”

“You feel suddenly on the Monday before the game that something has changed and you wonder first of all what has changed. Of course it’s the tension before the derby.

“Before you have the tension and you have the focus to prepare and to give your team the best chances to win the game. That’s what you focus on. Satisfaction comes with the feeling that you have done a good job so let’s do a good job first.”

says Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal v Tottenham Preview, Line-up and Score Prediction

Arsenal vs Tottenham Preview, Predicted line up and score line by KJ

We used to always be heavy favourites coming into a North London Derby before Redknapp managed to level the playing field with his Tottenham side, but ever since his departure, Tottenham have been slowly but surely dropping back down into their place as a top 8 club. We now go into this game as strong favourites and with all our world class talents, our fans are expecting something special.

Even El Tel urges Arsenal to sign more players!!!

Former England manager Terry Venables has no reason to want Arsenal to do well, having played for and been manager of our fierce north London rivals Tottenham, but even he is desperate for Arsene Wenger to see sense and see that the squad needs some top quality players bringing in to allow us to fight for major honours, as an Evening Standard report reveals.

Venables feels that the Gunners are on the edge of being able to challenge the likes of Chelsea and Man City, but unless Wenger signs another two players before the transfer window closes, which is looking increasingly unlikely, then Arsenal are set to come up short again.

Spurs to bid for Arsenal target Draxler! Ha Ha Good luck spuds…

This is pure comedy gold for Arsenal fans, although if there was even the slightest chance of it actually being successful, I would certainly not be smiling. Our north London rivals, Tottenham, must have got their hands on something very powerful and mind-bending to smoke if this transfer rumour report by Metro is true.

Tottenham try to hijack Aurier transfer as Arsenal dither!!

This had better not happen, Arsenal fans, or I will not be a happy camper. The suggestion that Arsenal could miss out on the summer transfer of the Toulouse right back Serge Aurier is bad enough, but to see the talented youngster go to White Hart Lane to play for our local rivals would just take the biscuit.

That is what the spuds’ new manager, Mauriciao Pochettino, is planning though, according to a Daily Mail report. The Argentinean coach, who did so well with Southampton, is looking to boost his squad with the clear goal of finally finishing above the Gunners, and Aurier is one of the players he thinks can help.

Come on Arsenal…don’t let Spurs sign Remy!!

Loic Remy has not exactly hidden the fact that he would like to be an Arsenal player. He came to watch the Gunners play at the Emirates stadium towards the end of last season (honestly, guv, just to watch) and has spoken about how his role model was Thierry Henry.

Add to that the fact that he says he wants to be playing in the Champions League and his QPR boss Harry Redknapp admitted that there was a fairly small release clause in his contract, and most Arsenal fans are wondering why Arsene Wenger has not already signed the French striker up. Remy may get another chance to showcase his skills for France against Nigeria today, which might just tip the balance for him.

Come on Wenger! Dawdling lets Spurs swoop on Arsenal transfer target

I am trying to maintain my mood of optimism, but this is Arsenal we are talking about. That old familiar feeling is starting to creep over me, deja vu style, and I can just picture myself around halfway through August, with the Premier League season already started, thinking what the hell is going on!?!

Last summer was supposed to be the one in which Arsenal fans could finally look forward to a transfer window in which all the talk would be about the players coming in rather than the ones leaving. But it turned out to be a refined type of torture.

Loic Remy hints he will join Arsenal – not Spurs!

The French striker Loic Remy, who famously was at the Emirates to watch Arsenal a couple of weeks ago, is apparently close to a move to the Spuds according to a report in the Daily Star.

They reckon that Spurs have already started negotiations with his parent club, QPR, and a transfer fee has already been decided between the clubs, but they also report that Remy has stated that he will only move if it is to play Champions League football.

The striker, who scored 14 goals with mid-table Newcastle this season, is quoted as saying: “I miss the Champions League.
