A short look at the Watford game 0

Arsenal deservedly beat Watford 3-0 at the Emirates on Sunday. Just like against AC Milan three days earlier, a lot of things went right. Let’s take a short look.

Quick transition

First of all, it should be said that Mohamed Elneny played a big part in this game. Present all around the pitch and in all segments of the game, he simply oozed composure with smart, well-measured passing and moved from tight spaces into larger pockets whenever possible.

German defender Per Mertesacker has been a rock at the heart of Arsenal’s defence ever since joining the club, but now, it seems as if the 33-year-old is just about ready to hang up his boots due to the stress involved with playing the beautiful game.

During an interview with magazine Der Spiegel, Mertesacker made a handful of somewhat startling comments regarding what it feels like to play at this level. The 2014 World Cup winner and former Werder Bremen star has been at the Emirates since 2011 and has made well over 150 appearances for the North London club.

Arsenal reach landmark Premier League milestone 0

We questioned whether or not Arsenal would rest players for the key clash against Watford, and despite that coming to fruition with Ramsey, Koscielny and Wilshere all not starting, they’ve managed to take the lead against the Hornets at the Emirates.

As the game progresses things could always shift one way or another, as we’ve seen this afternoon with the Old Firm derby, but Shkodran Mustafi’s opening goal is actually much more important than some fans may realise.

Arsenal’s Premier League campaign has been a poor one so far. The Gunners look to be out of the race for a top-four finish, but will still be clinging to the hope that one of the top-four teams slip up in the remaining months of the season.

However, for Arsenal to capitalise on any slip-ups they must start winning games in the league, starting with a home clash against Watford on Sunday.

A look at Arsenal’s last five games against Watford 0

As Arsenal prepare for a key Premier League clash against Watford this weekend, we thought it’d be interesting to take a trip down memory lane in order to see how the last five games between these two sides have gone over the years.

While the stature of Arsenal Football Club alone would lead you to believe they’ve been dominant, they’ve actually lost three of their last five meetings against the Hornets – which is a record Arsene Wenger will be aiming to rectify on Sunday.

Would a Wenger turnaround be football’s greatest comeback? 0

It’s no secret that Arsene Wenger is a few bad decisions away from completely alienating the Arsenal fanbase, and at this stage, many of us are already expecting it to happen. It’s been a dramatic fall from grace for a man who had the world at his feet just a few years ago, and now, the Frenchman has his back against the wall for what feels like the last time.

Jack Wilshere’s Arsenal future remains very uncertain 0

Posted on March 09, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has had a rollercoaster career thus far, and at the age of just 26, it seems as if his future with the North London club is in doubt.

As reported by Evening Standard, the Englishman responded to comments made by manager Arsene Wenger that suggested the ball was in his court. Wilshere spoke after Arsenal defeated AC Milan 2-0 in their UEFA Europa League first leg tie.

“Yeah, but things have changed since then and all I can tell you is that we are no closer to sorting anything out.”

Worrying developments

Does Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal legacy matter anymore? 0

Posted on March 08, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal head into tonight’s game against AC Milan with many questions surrounding the team, and one of the most prevalent is this: can Arsene Wenger survive as manager until the end of the season?

Even a few years back very few people would’ve been insisting upon the Frenchman’s dismissal to this degree, but now, things are on an entirely different level. The two-decade tenure of the 68-year-old at the Emirates is under severe threat, and unlike Sir Alex Ferguson, there isn’t much hope in regards to him going out on top.

Tainted memories

Manuel Pellegrini being considered as Arsene Wenger’s replacement 1

Posted on March 07, 2018 by Harry Kettle

According to Metro, former Manchester City manager and current Hebei China Fortune boss Manuel Pellegrini is on the shortlist to replace Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger when he finally leaves the club.

The Gunners continue to fall down the ranks this season both domestically and in Europe, having lost four consecutive games since 2002. Many fans are wondering just how low things can go throughout the remainder of the campaign, as the calls for Wenger to walk away or be sacked grow stronger and stronger.

The search begins

The talks surrounding the future of Arsene Wenger at the Emirates have been ongoing for longer than most fans would’ve realised, but as reported by Sky Sports, things could finally be taking a step in the right direction for those who want a change at the top of Arsenal Football Club.

In the wake of the club’s humiliating 2-1 defeat at the hands of Brighton & Hove Albion, which was the Gunners’ fourth straight loss in all competitions, members of the Arsenal Supporters Trust held their annual meeting in London as they discussed what is quickly becoming a disastrous campaign.
