Arsenal to go 4-4-2 with Podolski and Welbeck?

I am not sure if Arsene Wenger is ready to take too many risks when he sets his Arsenal team up to face Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, but as usual the Frenchman’s tactical options are a little restricted because of the injury situation.

With the Gunners needing just a point, the manager may well decide to play it safe. Jurgen Klopp is probably thinking along the same lines with his own injury problems and with Dortmund sitting two places off the bottom of the Bundesliga and facing a tough trip to Hamburg at the weekend. So now could be a perfect time to surprise the Germans and go on the attack.

Arsenal are in FALSE position and DESERVE better!!

Arteta is right and Arsenal have been unlucky by Sam P

Both Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta have claimed that Arsenal have deserved a lot more than we have got for our efforts this season, highlighted by the way we dominated Manchester United more than we have in years and still got nothing, while they scored two goals before even having two shots on target.

So I thought I would have a quick look at the evidence and see if there was support for what Mikel Arteta said to Arsenal Player about the Gunners seeming to be punished for every little mistake and not getting rewarded for the things we have done well.

EIGHTEEN reasons why Wenger should change or resign from Arsenal

18 reasons why Wenger should change or resign by MB

It’s been 18 years of the Wenger Revolution at the Arsenal Football Club. I believe these 18 years has not only revolutionized football at the North London but the entire England. Wenger introduced a new system of football; an aesthetically pleasing style of play that contributed majorly to our dominance from 1998 to 2005.

The highest peak of this style of play was showcased in the 2003/2004 season, which highlighted an outstanding feature of that dominating team known as “The Invincibles” which possessed some quality players available to coach Arsene Wenger. In the core of that defense had players like Toure and Cambell, in the heart of the midfield Vierra and Gilberto and upfront legendary Bergkamp and clinical Henry.

Giroud injury STILL hurting Arsenal for Dortmund clash

It is just about typical really. Even when Arsenal get some good news on the injury front, and the early return of Olivier Giroud from his tibia damage was certainly good news, there is a sting in the tail, because the big Frenchman is not available to face Borussia Dortmund in the crucial Champions League clash at the Emirates on Wednesday night.

After Danny Welbeck remined us of his lack of finishing finesse against his former club and Giroud then scorched a late goal past the Man United keeper not long after coming on, I am sure that many Arsenal fans were goping to see the France international start against Jurgen Klopp’s side, but it is not to be.

The Arsenal Board should be talking to Jurgen Klopp NOW

Arsenal must act quickly or lose Jurgen Klopp by KM

While Arsenal sit managerless as Arsene Wenger is a deluded old man and everything but a decent football manager, a certain Jurgen Klopp hass issued his desire to come to the Premier league. While we all know Wenger is incapable of even thinking of change, since he believes blindly in a way of football that just doesn’t work I ask if at least the board is thinking rationally.

Usmanov urges Arsenal to SPEND SOME MONEY!

Arsenal’s second largest shareholder Alisher Usmanov has been very quiet about the club in the last year or two, but now with the Gunners languishing in 8th place in the Premier League he has spoken out and urged Arsene Wenger to spend money on reinforcing the squad.

“My opinion – and I tell it openly – we need to strengthen every position to play on the level of such teams in (the) U.K. as Chelsea and Manchester City, in Europe like Real (Madrid), Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, (Bayern Munich) and other clubs,” he told CNBC.

Wenger surprised by lack of Arsenal defence for Rooney’s goal

Arsene Wenger was understandably annoyed by Arsenal’s home defeat against Man United. The Gunners dominated possession but were undone by a farcical own goal. As the team were pushing for the equaliser, Wayne Rooney somehow broke away with absolutely no Arsenal defenders between him and the goal to put the result beyond doubt.

Wenger admitted that he was “surprised” by the lack of defence. “We were 1-0 down and we wanted to desperately come back, and we forgot our principles a little bit,” he said.

Arsenal fans should NOT accept losing to Man United at home!

Arsene – Speechless, Clueless but his job is still safe! by KM

What a disappointment. What does Wenger care about the poor old Arsenal fans saving money all year to make that one trip to the Emirates to see Arsenal lose to the WORST UNITED SIDE I’ve seen in my entire life.

Disaster… I had only one wish this year, and it was to beat a poor Man United side. I didn’t make the illusions we will win the league. Not until Wenger is gone. And just when i thought he cannot screw this one, there it is. The players looked on in disbelief. When they don’t know what to do, the manager should, instead Wenger sits there CLUELESS!

Arsenal Debate – Was Jack Wilshere lucky not to be sent off?

No-one can deny that Arsenal’s defeat at home to Man United yesterday was a massive disappointment, but it could surely have been a whole lot worse if Jack Wilshere had been sent off after just half an hour of the game. The England midfielder looked like a very angry banshee as he aggressively approached the referee after obviously fouling Marouane Fellaini.

When the United midfielder attempted to protest about Wilshere, the little Terrier jumped into the Belgian’s face, head-butting him like a goat on heat. Was it lucky that Fellaini didn’t just drop like he had been shot – as many Premiership players have been known to do in the past, and was Wilshere even luckier that referee Mike Dean didn’t just give him a straight red card there and then.

Is it time for Thierry Henry to return to Arsenal?

Arsenal’s legendary striker Thierry Henry is getting ready to play the last game of his contract with New York Red Bulls today, and he is keeping very quiet about his next career move. There is every chance that he may continue his playing career (maybe in India with some other old Arsenal team-mates?) but surely at 37 years of age he may certainly be considering a bash at management.

He still retains his talent in front of goal but his global experiences should have given him a good basis for being a successful coach, especially with his inside knowledge of how Wenger does his job, so should Arsenal bring him to the Emirates as a boost for the younger players (for now!)?

Why Arsenal Fans Should Stop Protesting and Get Behind the Team!

Why Arsenal Fans Should Stop Protesting and Get Behind the Team! by AT

As a result of Arsenal’s dismal start to the new campaign and following back-to-back Premier League defeats at the hands of Swansea City and Manchester United, the pressure is once again mounting on the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger. As is the norm if the Gunners are doing badly, the group of Arsenal fans known as the ‘Wenger Out Brigade’ are out in full voice and are calling for the Frenchman’s head. But this time, the anti-Wenger forces seem to be stronger than ever.

Klopp makes BIG step towards replacing Wenger at Arsenal

Unless he has been on the moon or simply does not read the papers or use the internet, Jurgen Klopp must have heard the Arsenal transfer rumours that have proclaimed him as one of the main front runners to take over from our current manager Arsene Wenger, whenever that might be. And after the loss against Man United, it could be sooner rather than later.

It seems as though the German is not against the idea at all. In fact, Klopp has almost encouraged the Gunners to make a move to prise him away from his current club Borussia Dortmund, in a statement reported by the Daily Mail. And the 47-year old could be ready to take the reins at Arsenal sooner rather than later.
