Arsenal’s champions league fate for this season lies in tomorrow’s game against Bayern Munich. The Gunners will travel to the Allianz area, Munich, in Germany for what could be our last Champions League game of the season if the result doesn’t fall in Arsenal’s favour by a considerable amount.
Arsenal host Liverpool tonight in what is a meeting of the current leaders and the 3rd placed team in the Premier League. At the end of the season, the world may well look back at this match as the turning point in the campaign, and where the title was won or lost IF one of these two teams actually goes on to win the league.
The FA Cup tie today between Arsenal and Blackburn would appear to be an easy home win on paper as the Gunners have been in excellent form lately, but with a crucial Champions League tie against Bayern Munich coming up on Tuesday, Arsene Wenger is certain to be fielding a weakened side.
Nevertheless Skybet have got Arsenal installed as hot 3/10 favourites, while the Championship side can be taken at odds of 8/1. If you fancy an easy Arsenal win then a much better value bet is the Gunners to win by at least two goals which is a very reasonable 4/5 with Sky. By the way if you are considering taking these prices then you should visit this site for a list of Sky codes so you can get hold of some free betting money!
Today is game day Gunners and Sunderland have not won at Arsenal in any competition since May 1983. Good news. No, scratch that, Great news!!
Some players have left and others have come in. Scratch that too. Great players have come into the squad! Leading our attack today will be the one and only, Giroud. The tall french striker should make easy work of Mignolet!
Attacking our mid field from the centre, Carzorla- and we all know what he can do! Finally, and what I consider our best signing this season, leading the attack from the wing, Podolski- or as I like to call him, Po-GOAL-ski!
Good morning people, and welcome back to another good old match preview. In the next five minutes, I will waste a part of your lives in telling you facts you already know, and in telling you my worthless views on what team will take the field today. Cos try as I may, I am not Arsene Wenger, and my lineups rather come back to haunt me when I see the teamsheet.
Arsenal host Manchester United today hoping to bounce back from two defeats away in the league. Will they finally overturn their fortunes, and get revenge for that 8-2 demolition in the last week of August?
For Arsenal, that game was a waking-up call of sorts. It made Arsene realise just how barren the squad was, and it led to a period of mad activity on our part in the transfer market. The players brought in as a conclusion of that game have solidified their place in the squad, with Arteta, Mertesacker and Santos playing a major role in Arsenal’s campaign so far. Of those three, only the big German is available to face Manure today, with the other two out to injuries picked up over the course of the season.
Finally Sunday has arrived and with it arguably the toughest game of our season. Watching Chelsea draw against Wigan yesterday calmed the nerves somewhat, as if we lose today, we will still be only 3 points behind. But losing shouldn’t be acceptable today. On current form, we are the better team, that is a fact. But on paper, Man City are favourites and they have a 100% record at the Etihad. I have to stop and take a second to imagine what this season could have been if Fabregas and Nasri had remained at the club along with the arrivals of Vermaelan and RvP back from injury. We could have had the best midfield in the Premier League. But no point being hypothetical now. We have a solid trio in the midfield who provide experience and enough know how in order to give us the 3 points. We beat Barcelona, so we have to believe we can beat Man City.
First off, there’s quite a large development on the site. Many may have noticed, but now for the official confirmation, kind of. The linking from JustArsenal.com to JustArsenalFans.com has been completed, and now you don’t have to type in the website’s name in the address bar every time. Just to the right of the text, you can find the corresponding button on the top of the bar. Just click on it to switch between the two sites, and you’re all set. It’ll be visible on each and every page, and yeah, I fell it’s a good enough development to write a para about!
Arsenal enters their 13th match of their Barclays Premier League campaign on 22 points which puts them level with Chelsea and Liverpool for 5th place and only 3 points behind surprising Newcastle United. The Gunners are enjoying an excellent run of form having won 8 or their last 9 games in all competitions since the club’s last loss way back on October 2. Arsenal have 5 wins, 1 loss, and no draws at home at the Emirates Stadium in the Premiership so far this season.
I’ve been reading articles on how good the Man City team is performing and how good their squad is. A certain website [Talkshite] even went to the extent of comparing their squad with our invincibles. Ridiculous I must say !
Although the truth is that Man City really are performing at the top level and as they say, they really are the team to beat this season. So can the Gunners overcome this heavily loaded Man City team? Both in the Carling Cup and the League? Well honestly no one can predict what will happen in a game or what cannot, but I have analysed the 3 games were City dropped points…against Fulham in the League and against Napoli and Bayern in the Champions League. Here are my few observations and suggestions :-
