Manager Arsene Wenger has traditionally opted for low-key warm-up tours but fresh reports emanating out of Asia suggest Arsenal will face the Malaysian national team in July. Wenger told reporters […]

Walcott goal v Blackburn

Time to step up and perform – Arsenal v Blackburn preview

That might have been a very successful interlull period for Arsenal. A miserable run of results and downbeat players given some breathing space for Wenger to tell them they can start afresh in April, forgetting the past 5 weeks or so. Furthermore; Walcott, Song and Fabregas all got time the needed to return to fitness. […]

Who’s being sold off this Summer?

 It is hard to be fairly certain of anything in an uncertain world. Outside of death, what else can you predict universally? I’ll tell you one thing you can predict: football clubs will stir the pot every single summer by shipping out half the roster and replacing it. It happens like clockwork. Football isn’t like […]

Gunners comeback from two goals down at West Brom

The Gunners were huge favourites before kick-off to take all three points but it was the hosts who took the lead when Chris Brunt’s corner was met by Steven Reid, who scored […]

Fabregas v Chelsea

Chelsea can force a boost Arsenal’s title bid

There has been an almost unanimous reaction, at least among Arsenal fans, that the winners of Chelsea drawing Manchester United in the Champions League quarter finals could very well be Arsenal. I would anticipate Manchester United wanted Schalke or perhaps Tottenham. Shakhtar are a dangerous and interesting team which would have involved much travelling. Guardiola […]

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Arsenal v Blackpool - Emirates Stadium

Thoughts on transfer policy and treading water

Arsene Wenger announced today that Thomas Vermaelen was out for the rest of the season. Just in case you’ve forgotten, Vermaelen is a gritty, unsmiling, physical player with a thunderbolt left foot and fantastic leap to win headers against players far taller. Beyond this, he is the Belgian captain and former captain when at Ajax […]

Lehmann argued with Ljungberg, and Ramsey can shut down Morrison

Arsenal face a trip to West Bromwich Albion this Saturday in the Premier League. A disappointing previous three weeks has just ended with the news that Jens Lehmann set for a deal until the end of the season.  I wonder if Wenger will appoint Lehmann with his old job of collecting player fines, such as […]
