Is Ox or Arsenal boss right on England under 21s?

It looks like the Arsenal and England international star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be heading on a collision course with his club manager Arsene Wenger over the subject of the under 21 Euro championships next summer. And it is not the first time that the inclusion of the young Arsenal players for the England under 21 side has been an issue.

The last time was when the current Nottingham Forest manager Stuart Pearce was in charge for England at the last Euro tournament and he complained about not having his best players available, because the likes of Jack Wilshere had already played for the senior side. And the powers that be seem to have taken this on board even though they did not back him at the time.

Will FA cup inspire Arsenal to victory over Hull?

It was inevitable that the next time that Arsenal and Hull City met on the pitch after the great day at Wembley on the 17th of May, the subject of the FA cup would come up. Of course we Arsenal fans are hoping for the same result when the final whistle blows, but I would rather it does not turn out to be such a nerve wracking encounter.

Bookings ANOTHER reason Wilshere should be Arsenal’s number 10

The Arsenal and England international star Jack Wilshere has been talking about how sorry he is for his club team mate Mesut Ozil after the German playmaker picked up a knee problem and could be out for up to three months. And with news of Tomas Rosicky also having an injury, it leaves young Wilshere as one of the few players in the squad who could cover for Ozil.

Perhaps that is why he also talks about his different playing positions for club and country in a Daily Mirror report. Because of the different playing sylrs and formations used by Arsenal and England, Jack feels that his new deep lying role at international level would not suit him for the Gunners.

Rosicky AND Ozil injuries leave Arsenal on the brink of disaster!!

Maybe it was a bad idea for Arsenal to put a revolving door in the treatment room. That is certainly how it feels for the Gunners at the minute, as no sooner do we get a few players back from injury than they are replaced by other members of the Arsenal squad.

The latest to join the Gunners in the treatment room is our Czech Republic international Tomas Rosicky, who was on the bench as his country beat Kazakhstan to top their euro qualifying group ahead of struggling Holland. But as a report in The Telegraph reveals, the Arsenal midfielder was never going to play as he could not even sprint.

Why England snub is good for Gibbs AND Arsenal

I am sure that the Arsenal and England international left back Kieran Gibbs would have been a bit disappointed that he was not given the chance to build on his good performance during his fourth international cap for England against San Marino the other day.

In the cold light of day, however, I think the 25-year old should return to north London feeling pretty good about himself. After all, he did nothing wrong and should have confirmed to the England boss Roy Hodgson that he is a very capable alternative to the current England first choice Leighton Baines.

Wilshere has high hopes for an England packed with Arsenal players

Our very own Jack Wilshere helped England to win their fourth game in a row tonight against Estonia, and is hopeful that perhaps this new younger England squad (full of Arsenal players!) can go on and be successful on the big stage.

There have been a lot of retirements after England’s abject failure in Brazil and Jack believes this team can improve on recent form in big tournaments.

“Lampard and Gerrard were fantastic for England and I always looked up to them, so to play with them was a dream come true,” Wilshere told thefa.com.

Jack Wilshere should be copying a former Tottenham player!

Why Wilshere should mould his game around Modric, not Alonso. by KJ

Jack has just completed another game for England and was easily MOTM for anyone who watched it. He played the deepest midfielder and was pinging long balls all game to Rooney with good success. He should’ve easily ended up with 2-3 assists if Rooney was half decent. He mentioned in an interview recently that he’s modelling his game off Alonso and that’s great, but I think there’s someone who’d he benefit more from watching and that player is Luka Modric.

Arsenal and England star’s words on Welbeck a warning to Giroud?

It must be terribly frustrating for a pro footballer to have to sit and watch their team mates from the sidelines and not be able to do anything to help them. And the Arsenal players must feel this sort of frustration a lot more than most, because for some reason we seem to get more injuries and spend longer periods in the treatment room that any other club.

Do Arsenal already have a new defensive midfielder?

Arsenal fans are very used to seeing Arsene Wenger put his players into unfamiliar roles on the pitch, so it seems strange that England are now doing the same thing with Jack Wilshere and are trying to turn him into a defensive midfielder this week.

One can only wonder if Arsene Wenger has discussed this career change with Roy Hodgson as we are all aware that the Gunners are in desperate need of a new player in that position, especially as both Matthieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta are both getting a bit long in the tooth.

Will young Gunners core be good for England AND Arsenal

There is no doubt that things have changed at Arsenal Football Club in recent years. And I am not just talking about selling our best players, spending no money and finishing fourth every year. It has been mentioned a fair bit in the media that Arsene Wenger is now almost the bastion and forefront of producing talent for the England national team.

Welbeck strikes again as Arsenal stars shine for England

With Arsenal suffering from what seems like a never ending run of bad luck with injuries, most Arsenal fans would probably have preferred it if there were no Gunners in action during the international round of games. But that was never going to happen so the next thing we want is for our players to come through without injury and to play well.

There were five Arsenal players involved in the England v San Marino game at Wembley, with Alex Oxlade-Chasmberlain the only one not to start. But before I get on to England, I have to quicly mention Santi Cazorla. Our little midfield maestro may have lots of good things about his game, but I bet that will be the first and last time ha will ever play at right back.

Alexis gives Arsenal boss clear message! Stop resting him!!

If the terrible news about the Arsenal and Germany international midfielder Mesut Ozil is true and he is going to miss a few months because of a knee problem, then one of our other recent signings from La Liga may get his wish. Because the former Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez has revealed, in an Arsenal.com report, that he hates it when he does not complete the full 90 minutes of a game.
