What will give Arsenal fans a HAPPY NEW YEAR in 2015?

So this is it Arsenal fans, another year over and a new one just begun, to paraphrase the great John Lennon. And what have we done? More importantly, what are we going to do in 2015 to make sure that it is a good year for everyone of the Gooneristic persuasion?

Well I think it is safe to say that another shiny new trophy or two would be top of our wish list, and I am not talking about the `Wenger trophy`. Clearly the FA cup is the most realistic chance, perhaps the only realistic chance, but I am going to be optimistic here because if you cannot do so at new year, when can you?

Is Wenger right to say Arsenal did WELL in 2014?

Even though Arsenal are going to finish the calendar year of 2014 outside of the Premier League top four when we began the year on top of the tree, and having been knocked out of the Capital One cup at the first hurdle, Arsene Wenger has claimed that Arsenal have done very well over the last 12 months.

In an Arsenal.com report, the manager has been looking back over the year and seeing it in a very positive light. The main achievements he points to are the increase to 79 points and obviously the FA cup triumph at Wembley in May.

Wenger believes yesterdays win gives Arsenal a chance at the title

Every time Arsenal faced a Big Team last season, they were generally embarrassed by the opponents, especially when Chelsea beat us 6-0 in Arsene Wenger’s 1000th game in charge. It seems that that has spurred Wenger to fortify the team, and yesterday’s win over Man City has given Wenger belief that Arsenal can now compete with the big clubs once again.

Wenger said: “It was important for our confidence to win the game and it was even more important to have a big part in the game with quality.

Will Emirates cup be alone or one of many Arsenal trophies?

I might be jumping the gun a bit here, but after a 5-1 win in the first game, Arsenal are nailed on to win the Emirates Cup this weekend. With a point for every goal scored, the Gunners sit on eight points, with Benfica on just one and Valencia and our opponents today, Monaco, on just three. So as long as we don’t take a heavy defeat and fail to score, Arsenal will win the trophy for the first time since 2010.

Arsenal star on why Sanchez is the perfect signing!

There is a lot to be said for the impact that a good team morale can have on the performances of the players, both as individuals and as a collective unit, so the fact the Gunners’ new signing Alexis Sanchez seems to be creating the same sort of buzz around the club as the arrival of Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid did last year, can only be good news for Gooners everywhere.

Arsenal fans should be ready for a Fantastic season!

It is not long now, Arsenal fans, until the Gunners are back in the action. In four weeks time, we will already have had the Emirates Cup, with games against Benfica and AS Monaco at the Emirates stadium. Then Arsene Wenger takes his Arsenal team to Wembley for the Community Shield against Man City before the real serious business begins the following week with the visit of Crystal Palace. And I cannot wait.

Podolski ready for more trophy success with Arsenal and Germany

It was one of the many big blows that Arsenal had to cope with last season, when our German international striker Lukas Podolski picked up a hamstring injury in just his second competitive game of the season, against Turkish club Fenerbahce in the Champions League play-offs.

The prolific striker had already bagged a couple of goals by then, and once he came back from the treatment room around four months, continued with his impressive strike rate. It makes you think that Arsenal could have done much better than our fourth placed finish if Podolski had not had that injury, but it also bodes well for next season.

Wenger says his new Arsenal are on the brink of greatness

Now that Arsene Wenger has finally, officially put his signature on the new Arsenal contract, Gooners can relax, or worry, about what the future holds for the club. After all the will he, won’t he, should he, could he speculation, the players and fans know that the next three years, and the success or failure they bring, will be down to the Frenchman.

After the nightmare that Man United are going through after the departure of the purple nosed one, this is a relief. And it is an opportunity as well, although not an easy one. After spending so long at the top of the Premier League table this season and the terrible luck we had with injuries, most Arsenal fans will be hoping, if not expecting, a serious title challenge next season.

Adam Kemp – Wenger comes good but Arsenal need more!!

Arsene finally discovers that winning formula!

Over the years, I have been negative on the outlook for Arsenal Football Club, most notably under the guidance of the clubs most successful manager, Arsene Wenger. After the stellar signing of signing of Mesut Ozil on deadline day, I was optimistic that this was the season for Arsenal to make up serious ground on their rivals. Whilst winning the Premiership did not materialise in the end, they have managed to shift the burden of their nine year drought and in doing so have brought joy to fans all over the world.

Has Arsenal boss rediscovered his delight in trophies?

wenger delight

Maybe it is my memory playing tricks on me, because it is a long time since Arsenal won their last trophy, not including the Emirates cup or the Wenger trophy of course, but it seemed to me that there was a lot more emotion than usual from the Prof.

It looked like there was as much relief as there was joy after the final whistle had blown at Wembley. Maybe that was because of the way the Gunners had been forced to to make a historic comeback to avoid a third cup final heartbreak in a row. Or maybe it was that the pressure valve of nine years was suddenly released. What does seem certain, though, is that all of the Arsenal players and staff absolutely loved their taste of success and will be hungry for more.

Arsenal star reveals that Wenger’s words were key to FA cup

Did you really think it would be easy Arsenal fans? The Gunners had been talking all week about coping with the pressure and learning from the mistakes made against Birmingham City at Wembley three years ago. But that failure in the league cup was always going to increase the pressure on this current crop of Arsenal players.

And we were staring down the barrel before 10 minutes of the game had passed. There were quite a few key moments along the hard road to victory, with Santi Cazorla’s free kick right up there amongst them. But the Arsenal vice captain told Arsenal Player that he thinks the halftime team talk delivered by Arsene Wenger was one of the major factors in getting our hands on the FA cup trophy.
