Could Coquelin become as good as Vieira for Arsenal?

DonĀ“t get me wrong Arsenal fans, because I love what Francis Coquelin has done for the Gunners since an injury crisis forced Arsene Wenger to not only recall him early from his latest loan spell but play him in the first team as well. Credit, therefore, goes to the boss as well as the player and Wenger must be delighted that his decision not to offload the young Frenchman has paid off.

Can Coquelin REALLY be new Vieira for Arsenal?

Arsenal fans have been surprised and delighted by the performances of our French midfielder Francis Coquelin this season. Having been recalled from his most recent loan spell because of an injury crisis in central midfiel, the 23-year old has never looked back and every good performance he puts in makes us believe more and more that we might finally have found a proper defensive midfielder.

How did Arsenal become so VINCIBLE?

Arsenal could hardly have played a worse game right before Sky Sports showed the recently released video celebrating the amazing achievements of our best team ever; ‘the invincibles’ side that won the 2003-04 season without a single defeat. I watched it again anyway to cheer myself up.

Coquelin to complete turnaround and become Arsenal captain?

And after recent reports suggest that Arsene Wenger had already signed him up to a contract extension, the 32-year old is likely to keep the armband for a little longer.

Did Coquelin become Arsenal’s Matic at Man City?

Coquelin could be a new Vieira or Arsenal’s own Matic by Sam P

If Francis Coquelin can continue in the way he has been doing recently for Arsenal, it will be a truly remarkable turnaround for the young Frenchman. And not only could it rescue an Arsenal career that was looking on very thin ice, it could also solve a problem that many say we have had since Patrick Vieira left in 2005.

Bayer’s Bender set to be first Arsenal additon of the summer?

There are reports coming out of Germany that Arsene Wenger could be poised to make the Bayer Leverkusen and Germany international player, Lars Bender, his first Arsenal signing of the summer. If the rumours are true, then it could mean that the Gunners boss is finally taking that problem position of defensive midfield seriously.

Another Arsenal legend says we need three TOP players

Arsene Wenger has built himself a reputation at Arsenal for finding players that nobody has heard of before, or really considered as the sort who can win you things. But in recent years, those players have not been winning things and Sol Campbell says it is time for a change.
