Arsene Wenger has shuffled the defensive pack for over a season for one reason or another on the search for a solid base. It hasn't worked for a number of reasons, mostly injury but also due to lack of understanding and incompatibility. Holding, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Mustafi and the bum footed Brazilian Gabriel have all taken up the posts but without becoming a...
There are a number of issues that have left Arsenal fans bemused over recent weeks and it seems there won't be any reprieve anytime soon. Wenger, armed with a new two-year contract extension appeared to be energetic in the transfer market and added Lacazette and Kolasinac to the squad very early but the rest of the window was a series...

Sky Football pundit Paul Merson has upset the majority of Arsenal fans by claiming that only one player in the current squad would make the current Chelsea side. Unsurprisingly, the player was Alexis Sanchez but Merson failed to mention Alexandre Lacazette, Hector Bellerin, World Cup winners Per Mertesacker and Mesut Özil or even Petr Čech. Speaking to SKY, he said: “This is Arsenal...

If Thursday evening's game against Cologne taught us anything, it's that you can't beat a good old fashioned back four, as long as you have the right combination. Holding was withdrawn and replaced with the bargain of the transfer window, Sead Kolasinac. Whatever the reason Wenger left him on the bench, he must realise now that he can not afford such a lack...
Arsenal will look to get back to winning ways when they host Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday. Arsene Wenger's side started the campaign with a nerve-racking 4-3 win over Leicester City but they have since stumbled to consecutive defeats against Stoke City and Liverpool. Mark Lawrenson provided his weekly prediction on BBC Sport on Thursday where he expects the Gunners...
Arsenal play hosts to Bournemouth on Saturday in what is a must-win game following a dismal start to the season. The Gunners have bagged just three points from their opening three matches, and Arsene Wenger will expect a reaction from the players after their 4-0 thumping at the hands of Liverpool prior to the international break. Formation: 3-4-2-1 Judging by Wenger's recent...
Stan Kroenke and Ivan Gazidis
It's probably easy to blame Wenger 100%, he has on face value been a major contributor to Arsenal's failure to claim the Holy Grail last season, finishing in top four. His lack of clarity on his own future caused uncertainty and unrest within the club and more importantly the players. It was the catalyst for a series of damaging performances. That's a...
mustafi
When Shkodran Mustafi arrived from Valencia in 2016 for the not too shabby sum of £35 million, he looked every inch the defender Arsenal had craved. He looked strong, capable and defensively aware. Able to put in a hefty challenge to snuff out attacks and shore up a twitchy defence and everything looked extremely promising for the bulk of the season, so...
Well, the new season is only three games in and the Emirates is already echoing with the traditional “Wenger out“ chants. That's how promising this season looks. The just concluded transfer window hasn't been of much help either. Over the years the quality of players at Arsenal has depleted at an alarming rate. The team that was once home to the...
You can make all the excuses you like, blame the Gods, miscommunication and the unwillingness of clubs to do business but at the end of the day, Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal board have failed the club massively. The late, late final bid for Thomas Lemar to replace want away Sanchez has been nothing short of embarrassing. The player clearly didn't...
