Theo_Walcott_vs_Swansea_2011

Walcott Eyes More Improvement Theo Walcott believes that Arsenal’s 2012/13 season was a very successful one for him at an individual level, but he doesn’t want to rest on his laurels and is looking to get even better in the forthcoming campaign. The 24-year-old forward, who was the Gunners’ top scorer last season with 21 […]

Wasted season for Arsenal’s Ryo Miyaichi

miyaichi_ryo

Unfortunately, it’s been a wasted season for young winger Ryo Miyaichi. The 20-year-old Japanese international has been out on loan with fellow Premier League club Wigan since the start of the campaign and things certainly haven’t gone well for him. Miyaichi has now been loaned out to Dutch club Feyenoord as well as Bolton and […]

Champions League now Arsenal’s only hope for silverware

blackburn-arsenal

Arsenal’s one and only chance to break their long trophy drought this season is to become the champions of Europe by capturing the European Champions League.

Arsenal do enough to edge Brighton 3-2 in FA Cup

Theo Walcott scores against Udinese

Arsenal did just enough to squeak by Brighton and Hove Albion 3-2 on Saturday Jan. 26 on the south coast and advance to the fifth round of the FA Cup. However, they had to bring the big guns off the bench to do it as Theo Walcott shot home the winner in the 85th minute […]

Is Arsenal’s glass half full or half empty?

110-crest_outside_emirates

With Arsenal’s Champions League recent performance against Schalke in Germany as well as the season in general, some supporters are going to view the club’s glass as half full while many others are seeing it as half empty. The team showed it is still suffering from the Jeckyl and Hyde syndrome as it looked great […]

Backpage Roundup: Wenger Baffled At Flat Performances, QPR’s Hughes a Fan of Wilshere, Mertesacker Wants Instant Recovery, Gazidis Promises Rosy Future and More

wenger23

Wenger Unable to Explain Arsenal’s Flat Performance Arsene Wenger has admitted that Arsenal are currently struggling to find their rhythm on the offensive end of the pitch. The Gunners started the 2012/13 season in fine form but their attack has now inexplicably seized to perform, resulting in back-to-back defeats against Norwich City and Schalke in […]

The Di Matteo effect

Roberto Di Matteo has taken Chelsea back to basics. With his only previous Premier League management experience being his time as the manager of West Brom, he knows what it means to be in the results business. When you get a team promoted from the Championship to the top flight, it’s often all about getting […]

Wenger: Arsenal’s Resurgence a Result of Last Season’s Horror Finish

wenger23

Arsene Wenger has said that his team’s recent run of good form is a result of their failures in the 2010/11 season. Arsenal were on the verge of ending their six-year long trophy drought at this time last season when they faced Birmingham City in the Carling Cup final. But in a surprising turn of […]

Big night for the Gunners at Goodison

Thanks to the FA Cup quarter finals the Arsenal players were able to have a weekend off and so should be fully refreshed after the exertions of the last minute smash and grab win over the Magpies. The same cannot be said for tonight’s opponents, Everton. They had to play an exhausting derby game at Anfield, where […]

Van Persie Feels No Pressure to Score

RVP will leave Arsenal to play for Barcelona

Recently published articles, some by professional sports journalists and many by amateur bloggers, have theorized, with virtually no supporting data whatsoever, that Robin van Persie is preparing to depart Arsenal for another club (i.e., Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, etc.) If you don’t believe me, just try typing the phrase “Robin van Persie” into the Google search engine, and the […]

A reminder for Tottenham fans

110-crest_outside_emirates

Most of the time I’m not one for animalistic rivalry. I prefer to put my bias aside and keep a rational head; to see football for what it is. But as derby day edges closer, I’m afraid instincts are kicking in. Firstly, congratulations to Tottenham. After a LOT of waiting, they finally have a very […]

Arsenal Fans Build Case Against Arsene

Arsenal knocked out of the FA Cup

The numbers simply don’t lie: Seven long years without a trophy. Comments regarding the team’s demise have been loaded with vitriol: “The worst Arsenal team in ten years,” for instance. Arsenal as a team appears to be in a state of crisis, but there are yet more questions than answers concerning any resolution. Arsenal fans […]

Arrogant Arsenal players live in a bubble

frimblonde

Many of you will now be aware of the Twitter row between cocky celebrity Arsenal fan Piers Morgan and outspoken fringe player Emmanuel Frimpong that took place last night in the wake of our 2-0 FA Cup exit to Sunderland. Let me make this clear very early: I detest Piers Morgan. I think he’s a […]

Arsenal knocked out of the FA Cup

Arsenal knocked out of the FA Cup

Short of a miracle it will be seven years since Arsenal last won a trophy, and it now looks like we will struggle for fourth place. I started this post before our loss to Sunderland 2-0 at the Stadium of light. I am now sat here nervously waiting for our fifth round FA Cup tie […]

Adieu, Thierry Henry. And merci beaucoup.

Arsenal a tale of three substitutes

On Saturday morning, I saw the list of potential managers for the England National Team now that it finds itself without a coach. The Euro 2012 is not too far away now, and the eyes of the world are on England, waiting to see who will take the helm amidst the international controversy. I couldn’t […]

Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Manchester City All Want Van Persie

van-persie

Euro 2012 arch-rival Real Madrid wants Robin Van Persie. Look at my face: I am not happy right now. The prospect of Real Madrid acquiring Arsene Wenger and Robin van Persie would be a major coup for that club, to be sure, but I’m left to wonder whether or not Van Persie would view that […]

Greater Things are Yet to Come

Arsenal thrash Blackburn 7-1

  I’ve got to admit, feeling like a loser has become a part of my identity, low self-confidence hard-wired into my DNA by virtue of too many years of hardship. On Saturday morning, as Arsenal destroyed Blackburn 7-1, I got to feel like a winner again. And it felt good. Really good. In terms of […]

Arsene Attempts to Avoid Debacle of Historic Proportions

Arsenal to be cautious with signing’s

  “It was the best of times. It was the worst of times.” Not sure who wrote those immortal words originally, but I believe the words apply now more than ever. Naturally, I’m accurately describing Arsenal’s woeful 2011-2012 season. I’m a nice guy, and I don’t want to hold Arsene wholly accountable for the team’s […]

Van Persie Dodges Silver Bullet

Robin-van-persie

  Okay, you can all relax now. Turns out that our hero, Arsenal captain Robin van Persie, will NOT be sanctioned for allegedly throwing an elbow in the face of defender Carlos Cuéllar, after all. Had the Football Association chosen to sanction him, and there certainly seemed to be justification for doing so, the punishment to both […]

Seven good minutes enough for Arsenal

The Arsenal fans want to win the FA Cup

Three goals in seven second half minutes – that’s all it took for Arsenal to win a game in which they were otherwise unimpressive. While the comeback was miraculous and the result crucial, many problems still remain. As has been the case for the last month or so, Arsenal started at a pedestrian pace. While […]

The Arsenal fans want to win the FA Cup

The Arsenal fans want to win the FA Cup

Here we are on the verge of our 4th round FA Cup tie with Aston Villa, and yet I find myself still thinking about the substitution of Oxlade-Chamberlin in last weeks 2-1 loss to Manchester United. With the way Wenger was talking it makes me wonder if he is getting his apologies, or should I […]

Arsenal versus Aston Villa- FA Cup Fourth Round Preview

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Arsenal head into Sunday’s FA Cup fourth round clash with Aston Villa on the back of three consecutive league defeats, but they have still been deemed the favourites by many football betting sites to emerge victorious. Arsenal and Villa last played an FA Cup match nearly 29 years ago at the good old Highbury, where […]

Why Arsenal must learn to love Cup again, Arsene

wenger2

by STUART WATSON I really love the F.A Cup, a lot of my boyhood memories derive from the competition whether they be good or bad. A few early ones include the two semifinals at Wembley in the early 90’s, Wrexham in 92, Linighans late goal to win us the cup in 93, Andy Walker smashing […]
