It seems to be the majority view that Arsenal must have an alternative holding midfielder/DM to share the load with Coquelin. Schneiderlin, Vidal and now Carvalho are of course the names contin

For youngsters like Jack Grealish and Jack Wilshere, it's all about learning to grow up in public

The modern footballer is often expected to step into the public eye as a fully formed role model, regardless of age or background; sometimes it is forgotten that these are young men prone to the same mistakes as the rest of us.     It happens gradually and then all at once. There’s always whispers around training grounds discussing who the next big prospect might be. As soon as one of these young men begins to show

Will a 3-man defence of Monreal, Gabriel and Koscielny as Sweeper work for Arsenal?

Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal could play along with Gabriel in a three-man defence For the most part, the reaction to the series opener of ‘Spicing up the tank without breaking the bank – Part 1’ featuring a Barca style front 3 was positive. However as I suggested it is a case of using one’s imagination to consider the strengths of the current squad and mixing it up to surprise the Premier League. The question

Arsenal's mouth-watering Barcelona-style attacking trio set for 2015/16

Can Arsenal play with Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain up front? I have not written a new article here for a while but, as is often the case, a few thoughts that are hanging around in the back of my mind are brought to the fore by events. The events in question are the Champions League final and Barcelona in general and the first half of England vs Ireland the other day. Oh, and one other train of thought that i

The FA has charged Jack Wilshere with a misconduct charge After winning the FA Cup for a second consecutive time and record-setting twelfth time overall, Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere was momentarily confused and in need of clarification.

Against that history, it would be easy to see h

Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere lay waste to the want-away rumours

Injuries have been a key factor in keeping the Arsenal duo out of the side It was a throw-away line, a bit of vanity, that I tossed in as an afterthought. In hindsight, though, I should have seen it coming. My predictions, after all, had been off-base in recent weeks. I kept calling for wins and we staggered to draws, even a loss. I started to doubt my ability to see into, nay, control the future. 3-1 over Swansea? 1-2 over Man U? What was
