The Importance of Benayoun | The Squad Player Arsenal Needed

Already at this site we've taken a look at Per Mertesacker and Mikel Arteta in their first seasons at Arsenal. Now seems apt to analyse loan-signing Yossi Benayoun and his contribution to Arsenal's surprise season. The Israeli arrived on deadline day, a loan signing from Chelsea, to a sea of mediocre approval, quite indicative of his career in the Premier League so far. Excellent at West Ham, he then moved to Liverpool where he became a rotation player and impressed …

Swansea vs Arsenal | Stats Preview

Arsenal will be hoping to return to the top 4 with a win against Swansea at the Liberty Stadium.

The Wing Wizards of Arsenal

The one thing you have to give to Arsenal FC is that they never fail to entertain. They dragged themselves back into the race for the top 4, indeed some said even the title race, by snatching late points in matches where they weren't quite at their flowing best. Only because of their spirit and never say die attitude. It was the kind of stuff that Ferguson’s United are known for! But when they finally got into a position to …
Have Arsenal Gone Backwards?

Have Arsenal Gone Backwards?

Another season but the same story for Arsenal fans, a February collapse and any chances at silverware up in smoke. The humiliation in the San Siro was followed by an apathetic defeat to Sunderland, eliminating the Gunners from the Champions League (well pretty much) and the FA Cup respectively.
