Skhodran Mustafi's Absence Hurting Arsenal

Skhodran Mustafi's Absence Hurting Arsenal

Skhodran Mustafi informed Arsenal fans a couple of days back that he will be back in the New Year. Arsenal fans could be happy because of this or dismayed as it means that their team’s defence will remain shaky for a few more weeks to come. It seems to be general consensus that Mustafi has been a great buy for Arsenal, as he has been able to build a solid partnership with Laurent Koscielny and the Gunners have not lost …
Wenger and The Blame Game

Wenger and The Blame Game

After an impressive run of form that saw Arsenal remain unbeaten in the Premier League since their opening day defeat to Liverpool, the Gunners suffered back-to-back defeats away at Everton and Manchester City. Some critics have been quick to suggest Arsenal are "bottling" a title challenge already, but it is surely far too early to make that kind of suggestion as even title winning teams have suffered dips in form at some point. Only time will tell if this is …

Calum Chambers - A loan move to Middlesbrough could suit all parties

It was announced on Monday that Middlesbrough had agreed to loan Calum Chambers from Arsenal, a move that was well received by both fan-bases.

Is Calum Chambers too Versatile for his Own Good?

Is Calum Chambers too Versatile for his Own Good?

Last summer, Calum Chambers made his dream move to Arsenal.  The Gunners paid a fee that could rise up to £16m, a lot for a 19 year old that made only 25 senior appearances for Southampton. When Arsene Wenger signed him, the Frenchman said he wanted Chambers to be a centre-back.  He started his career in that vein getting a run of games in the middle of defence when Per Mertesacker was recovering from the World Cup and Laurent Koscielny …
Arsenal Season Review: Have the Gunners Progressed?

Arsenal Season Review: Have the Gunners Progressed?

At the end of last season Arsenal went on another late run to scrape into fourth place.  Yet, last season was different from many in the past.  The Gunners finally ended their nine year trophy drought, and, while they did fall away, had been atop of the league more days than any other team in the Premier League.
