Arsenal breathing down Chelsea’s and Spurs necks

gervinho_arsenal

Arsenal crept closer to Chelsea and Tottenham with a solid 2-0 win at Swansea on Saturday and kept their second away clean sheet in a row. The game lacked drama though as the Gunners were more or less in control of the proceedings right from the opening kickoff and very rarely seemed to be in […]

Mertesacker Urges Gunners to Beat Chelsea Per Mertesacker has urged his Arsenal teammates to prove that they deserve to be in top four by defeating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Arsenal into fourth round of FA Cup with 1-0 win over Swansea

jack_wilshere

Arsenal didn’t have much of a problem outplaying a less-than impressive Swansea side at the Emirates in London on Jan. 16, but they did have trouble putting the ball in the back of keeper Michael Vorm’s net. It took an 86th- minute goal by English international midfielder Jack Wilshere to guarantee a 1-0 win over […]

Arsenal fit to be tied in Swansea FA Cup tilt

Kieran-Gibbs-Arsenal

Arsenal left Wales a little dejected on Sunday Jan. 6 after being held to a 2-2 draw in their Third Round tie of the FA Cup by Swansea. The Gunners allowed a late goal by Danny Graham in the 87th minute to level the score at 2-2 after taking the lead themselves just four minutes […]

Laudrup Dismisses Arsenal’s Title Chances Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has discarded Arsenal’s title chances and believes that only the two Manchester clubs and Chelsea are fighting for the Premiership trophy. The Danish trainer is a big fan of coach Arsene Wenger’s work and philosophy but he doesn’t believe that the Gunners have what it […]

The ‘Makelele role’ is still important

songy21

On the same day that Arsenal’s main defensive midfielder was confirmed as a Barcelona player, Everton overran Manchester United in a very impressive and fully deserved 1-0 win at Goodison Park. The link here? United had no midfield. Sky called it a 4-3-3 in the pre-match buildup, but it looked more like a 4-2-3-1 with […]

wenger23

Arsenal kick off their Premier League campaign with a home game against Sunderland. The top flight fixtures are out and the Gunners’ second match of the season will be at Anfield against Liverpool.

This might be a good time to play United

robin-van-persie

I might be clutching at straws a little, but there’s a small amount of evidence to suggest that our best results against Manchester United in recent times come during difficult periods. Now is certainly one of those periods. After we looked like recovering a season that looked lost as soon as it started, we are […]

Deep-rooted problems at Arsenal

henryrow

There are no excuses, yesterday we were outplayed and outfought by a newly promoted side, as Swansea beat us 3-2 to seriously dent our hopes of making the top four. The penalty decision was questionable, yes, but as has been the problem recently, we were not up for this game at all. We scored early […]

Don’t win raffle unless you buy a ticket, Wenger

henryrow

I never usually do New Year’s resolutions, but this year I decided to give myself a six week break off alcohol, and I’m starting to regret it already as Arsenal have already given me a couple of reasons to drown my sorrows. Our first visit to Swansea in 30 odd years and a new ground […]

Arsenal circus needs some new acts, Arsene

Wenger

Nine years ago Swansea were bottom of the table of league football. Rock soild bottom. Next stop non-league oblivion. Yesterday they were flying high and should be rightly proud of themselves for turning the Arsenal over in royal fashion. They displayed hunger, desire, fight and unity in abundance and deserved the victory. Nine years ago […]

Wenger mulls starting Henry with RVP for Arsenal against Swansea

henry-300x180

Will Thierry Henry start up front with RVP at Swansea on Sunday? Probably not I reckon, AW has stayed coy over his plans but if he didn’t start him in the 1-0 win over Leeds in the FA Cup then he’s hardly likely to in a Premier League game with three vital points at stake […]

Rejuvenated Arshavin back to his best for Arsenal

arsha2

The Swansea game wasn’t the easiest to watch, I have to admit. We looked nervous at the back and uncomfortable throughout the 90 minutes; in fact we looked like a team that was still struggling to come to terms with having the absolute stuffing knocked out of us by one of our greatest rivals which was […]

Our Season Starts Tomorrow…

Arteta Arsenal 2011

Arsenal Wenger promised us an “active” summer transfer window. And boy, he stuck to his word! Although at times, it appeared that the number of players coming in was going to be limited, Arsene kept his promise and captured a number of quality players, in the last few moments of the summer transfer window. Mikel […]
