Arsenal NOT complacent despite having bus parade ready

There have been some suggestions in the media that Arsenal are not giving their FA cup final opponents the respect they should. I feel that most of the media would love it if the Gunners slipped up. It would give them lots of things to write about and would enable them to keep banging on about blah, blah, years without a trophy etc.

Ozil desperate to give Arsenal fans the trophy they deserve

Mesut Ozil has already played a significant part in Arsenal reaching the FA cup final and having a fantastic opportunity to get the trophy that could lead to a new era of Gunners glory. Before he picked up an injury away to Bayern Munich, the German international signed off with the crucial opening goal and then another assist as Arsenal beat Everton in the quarter-finals.

That was the third big Premier League club we had to get past in the competition, leaving just Hull City standing in our way. The fans really need this trophy, as does the team, and our record signing is determined to do everything he can to provide it for us.

Captain says Arsenal set for years of success! So why leave?

Things seem to be on the up for Arsenal. Now the sting of seeing the Premier League title challenge falter after a fantastic start has eased off a bit, we are looking ahead to a Wembley final with a great chance to put the silverware stress to one side and lead to some great years of success for Arsenal Football Club.

That is the opinion of the captain Thomas Vermaelen, although it seems like he might not be around to share it if he does move in this summer. The Belgian international believes that the team is in great shape for the future, and the amount of time we spent at the top of the table surely backs this up. We have got to sort the medical side out, buy a few stars and go for it.

Is Wenger right to suggest the FA cup NOT vital for Arsenal?

I don’t even want to think about what will happen if Hull City repeat the feat of Birmingham City in 2011 by denying Arsenal against all odds and beating us in a Wembley final. We know it could happen though and, according to vatious reports in the media, it could have big repercussions.

Some people are saying that Arsene Wenger will decide to call it a day if he fails to end Arsenal’s nine year wait for a trophy, while others claim the opposite and think the Frenchman will be happy to quit while he is ahead and has some of his reputation restored. There could also be a number of Arsenal players who consider their futures if we fail again, while it could make it harder to persuade potential signings to come to the Emirates stadium.

Why many neutrals want Arsenal not underdogs to win FA cup

It is a noble tradition in football, in England at least, that almost all of the neutral fans will support the under dog, especially in a game like the FA cup final. So you would think that Arsenal fans would be the only people wanting the Gunners to get a victory over Hull City at Wembley on Saturday.

Unusually, however, that is not necessarily the case this time. Of course, the fans of our rivals, especially the Thursday night brigade that is the spuds, will be delighted if we see a repeat of the 2011 league cup final when Birmingham shocked a hesitant Arsenal. But there is quite a lot of support for Arsenal among the neutrals as well.

Will Arsenal take Hull lightly? No Chance says Wenger

The subject of Arsenal, the trophy drought and the shock defeat by Birmingham City in our last major final was bound to come up, and will do many times before Arsenal run out on to the Wembley turf on Saturday. And it is no surprise that Arsene Wenger is not all that keen on focusing on the 2011 League Cup final either.

Captain claims Arsenal and Ozil are in full flow again

It appears as though the FA cup semi-final was a bit of a watershed moment for Arsenal. The nerves were very apparent against Wigan Athletic at Wembley, but the loads showed great character and eventually blasted through the penalty shoot out.

Club captain Thomas Vermaelen played in that game and the Belgian defender reckons that Arsenal have gone from strength to strength since then, as reported by Arsenal.com. Whether or not it was the relief of booking a place in the FA cup final, knowing the importance of securing a top four finish, or merely getting some key players back from injury, but the shackles have come off since then. It is probably a combination of all three.

Why Arsenal would benefit from an Everton win!!

It’s alright Arsenal fans, I have not gone bonkers mental, at least I don’t think I have. When the doctors come round next I’ll ask them. But I do have a reason for thinking that Arsenal could actually do with Everton getting a win over Man City at Goodison Park on Saturday.

First of all, I don’t want Liverpool to win the title, but then I don’t want any of them to win it. What I do want is for Arsenal to go into the FA cup final at Wembley on good form. Forget about resting some of our best players to keep them safe, we want a confident bunch who are in the habit of winning, which is why I think an Everton result would help us.

Nasri lays into Mourinho AND Arsenal fans over Wenger treatment

It might seem strange, given the strained nature of the relationship between Samir Nasri and the Arsenal fans, but the Frenchman will be fully rooting for Arsenal to beat Hull City at Wembley on May 17th and win the FA cup. Why? Because Nasri feels it is the least that Arsene Wenger deserves.

The Man City player has spoken in glowing terms of his former boss, while slating the man he left the Gunners to play for, Roberto Mancini, in an interview in The Telegraph.

Nasri explains to Arsenal fans why Wenger WILL spend big!!

A lot of Arsenal fans are not too keen, to say the least, on the Man City midfielder Samir Nasri and he is well aware of it. I am not going to go too much into the reasons for that now. The France international does still, however, profess to have feelings about his former club, but especially for the boss Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal on Easy Street as Everton lose again

They still have to keep their eye on the prize and put in the effort needed, but everyone connected with Arsenal should be feeling good today. The battle for the fourth Premier League spot is now looking like a one-horse race, and the jockey is wearing red with white sleeves.

I wrote an article the other day about Roberto Martinez and his desperate attempt to put pressure on Arsene Wenger and the players, whereas he knew that it was Everton who were struggling to deal with it. Since baiting us and getting their fate in their own hands, those hands have dropped the ball big time.

Don’t worry Arsenal fans, Koscielny will sign, IF we win the FA cup!!

We heard this week that the Arsenal manager had met with the French football agent Stephane Courbis, and I hope that Mr. Wenger was at his charming best and had a very nice bottle of Bordeaux waiting at the perfect temperature for the meeting, because Courbis is the agent of Laurent Koscielny and Serge Aurier.

Amid rumours of interest in our French centre back from the likes of Bayern Munich, PSG and even Manchester United, Arsenal are keen to get Koscielny to put his signature on a new deal that will put him at the same salary level as the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere, something around £90,000 a week.
