Could Lukas Podolski play through the middle next season? 1

Posted on April 22, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

With Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski having scored four goals from his last two games, there’s reason to believe the Gunners could well have another striker option under their noses for the next campaign, rather than having to shell out millions on a replacement who is unproven in the Premier League.

The German international, 28, took his league tally to eight goals in 17 league games for the season, which now makes him Arsenal’s third top goalscorer for the campaign.

Some Arsenal fans need to be careful what they wish for 6

As we all know Arsenal are favourites to claim fourth spot in the Premier League and win the FA Cup, with a final against Hull yet to come next month. It is starting to look like it may not be all doom and gloom at the Emirates Stadium.

Spare a though for all those poor Manchester United fans, who have just seen their boss David Moyes sacked after less than a year in charge, after the Scot replaced United legend Sir Alex Ferguson in the Red Devils dugout last summer.

Arsenal defender Vermaelen a subject of interest from Serie A side and more 0

Posted on April 21, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

Alex Kroes, agent of Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen, has confirmed Serie A side Napoli are one of many clubs looking into the possibility of signing the Belgian international.

‘Yes Napoli have been on the player and have stepped forward, but other clubs have also shown their interest and not just Italian clubs. We will postpone any discussions until after (the World Cup) then we will then consider any kind of offer regarding his future.’

Vermaelen, 28, has been on the periphery at Arsenal this season. The centre back has made just seven Premier League starts for the Gunners, but did make three league starts in a row – as cover for injured left-backs Kieran Gibbs & Nacho Monreal.

Arsenal have no problem beating the lower position sides, but falter in big games 0

Posted on April 21, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

While Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said his side are now looking more mentally fresh to finish the season strongly, is their recent good form just down to the calibre of opponent?

The Gunners have taken the most points from bottom-half opposition with 47 points this season. But against the top-half sides, Wenger’s men have only won six out of their 17 games.

It highlights Arsenal’s problem in the last few years, and would also suggest injuries aren’t a viable excuse about their failings in the league this campaign.

Arsenal a different side with Ramsey, Ozil, Podolski 1

Having witnessed a stunning performance from Arsenal in the 3-0 triumph over Hull City, one cannot help but wonder what would have been if Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey hadn’t picked up their respective injuries and Lukas Podolski was given a prolonged run in the side.

It was the attack-minded trip that had a key role in overcoming resilient Tigers at their KC Stadium, ensuring the Gunners have the psychological advantage over Steve Bruce’s side ahead of the FA Cup final at Wembley.

Race for the Champions League could go down to the wire 0

Arsenal’s 3-0 win at Hull yesterday briefly put the Gunners four points clear in the race for fourth spot and a Champions League place. Rivals Everton replied with 2-0 win at Goodison over reigning champions Manchester United.

Battle

After Wednesday’s shock 3-2 defeat at home to Crystal Palace, people could have been forgiven for thinking that Everton were going to finish the season with a whimper, rather than a flourish. However, it seems that the Palace game was just a blip for the Toffees.

Arsenal defeat Hull to extend lead in fourth place 0

Arsenal defeated Hull 3-0 at the KC Stadium to move four points clear of Everton in the race for the fourth place.

The home side had the first attack of the game on three minutes. George Boyd whipped in a cross which found Curtis Davies, but a number of bodies got in the way and Wojciech Szczesny smothered the ball. The next incident of note was a bizarre one, as a number of the advertising hoardings blew onto the pitch.

Will Hull Dent Arsenal’s Champions League Hopes With Gunners’ Poor Recent Away Form? 0

Hull City host Arsenal today hoping to seal their Premier League safety, which in turn will harm the Gunners chances of finishing in the Champions League this season.

Arsenal have been woeful away from home of late. The Londoners have won just once on their travels in the last three months. There’s also the worry of their defensive record too, with the side having gone six straight games in all competitions without a clean sheet.

Jack Wilshere could return to play in the FA Cup final 0

Posted on April 20, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed injured midfielder Jack Wilshere could be back in time for the Gunners’ FA Cup final against Hull City May 17th.

‘He is starting to jog this week. I would think two to three weeks. I spoke to (England manager) Roy Hodgson and I told him that Wilshere will be available for (the World Cup). He will be just polished for England. Jack can be the positive surprise. Jack has been in and out this year, but I think they have sorted out the problem now. I hope from now on he will always be available.’

Arsenal need FA Cup trophy to stop summer exodus 2

Posted on April 20, 2014 by Nemanja Lazarevic

After winning the FA Cup semi-final tie against Wigan Athletic at Wembley, Arsenal are just one step away from winning the coveted trophy and at the same time ending a nine-year wait for a major title.

And while the FA Cup trophy would provide a huge boost for everyone at the club, it would also seriously decrease chances of several star players leaving the Emirates at the end of the current campaign.

Namely, the mere fact soon-to-be free agent Bacary Sagna has yet to make a decision on his future is enough to suggest the Frenchman is waiting to see how the current season will pan out before he opts to either star with the Gunners or accept an offer from one of his suitors.
