SHOCKING: Liverpool To BEAT Arsenal To Sign 25-year-old Champions League Winner

Arsenal have been handed a huge blow in pursuit of midfield summer target. Real Madrid are now ready to allow Arsenal target Asier Illarramendi to join Liverpool, according to reports. The Reds have been heavily linked with a move for the 25-year-old midfielder

Newcastle 0-1 Arsenal | Job done as another final day win averts the unthinkable

A swashbuckling display from Laurent Koscielny earned Arsenal a gritty win in the North East to earn his club a valuable Champions League place next season. The French defender weighed in with crucial contributions at both ends of the pitch to

QPR 0-1 Arsenal | Unconvincing Gunners do just enough

When Theo Walcott latched onto Mikel Arteta’s pass to score after just 20 seconds, a convincing victory seemed certain. After all, we were playing the bottom side who’d been relegated with a whimper last weekend and hadn’t managed a goal in

Arsenal 1-1 Man Utd | Where was this commitment all season?

There will never be a better time to play Manchester United. It looked as though their players had been partying all week and only put down their champagne glasses five minutes before kick off. That’s how off the pace they were

Fulham 0-1 Arsenal | Unconvincing and uninspiring, but a huge win

Bayern Munich 0-2 Arsenal | Pride restored, time to kick on now

Earlier in the day all the talk was about Wenger resting Cazorla, Mertesacker and Walcott for Swansea on Saturday, thereby ‘giving up’ and allowing the Germans an easy win. The Daily Mail in particular went to town, writing three separate articles

Spurs 2-1 Arsenal | So predictable as Wenger fails to learn lesson

As I tried to decide on a headline for this report, I encountered a few problems. Referring to our defending I was going to put ‘We keep making the same mistakes’ but realised I’d already used that for the Blackburn debacle.

Arsenal 2-1 Villa | Sorry, but that wasn’t good enough

A late strike from Santi Cazorla rescued a win for Wenger’s men after more defensive ineptitude had given Aston Villa the chance of an unlikely point. The Spaniard turned in Monreal’s low cross to spark celebrations of sheer relief around the
