Arsenal embarrassed in Europe again

Oh dear! It happened again. Arsenal humiliation at home by Monaco was a reminiscence of a typical performance from the Gunners. It was pathetic, diabolical and shambolic.

When the draw was announced many Arsenal fans were optimistic of progression. They developed hope. But did they not say that it is hope that kills?

Its nights like these that leave me pondering whether Arsenal will ever win the Champions League. Its 18 years in a row in CL football with nothing to show for it. In other news, we are on the blink for a fifth consecutive round of 16 elimination. Inexplicable!

Previous eliminations by Barcelona, AC Milan and Bayern were understandable. A 3-1 drubbing by Monaco at home is unfathomable. The blame is to be shared by the manager and the players who looked lethargic and out of sorts.

Arsenal survive Palace late scare to secure 3rd place

Well, Arsenal never looked settled for the entire 90 minutes at Selhurst Park. However, against the run of play, the Gunners somehow led 2-0 for the majority of game. Cazorla’s penalty and Giroud strikes ensured that all the three points went the Arsenal way.

Like I said, the game was not a walk in the park. Were it for not for the Eagles lack of composure and profligacy in front of goal, the Gunners would be talking a different language.

Pardew’s late substitutions caused plenty of problems for the Arsenal defense. A late goal by Murray after a goal mouth scramble brought a nervy finish to the game.

The Gunners are on a good run. Eight wins in nine matches is not bad at all to say the least.

Professional Arsenal stroll past Boro

Arsenal were back to business in the late FA kick off with Middlesbrough. Two exquisite finishes by Giroud ensured a rather dominant encounter by the Gunners over a team that eliminated Manchester City.

Arsenal controlled the game in all departments. The passing was excellent just as the defending. Ozil and Cazorla bossed the midfield with majestic runs and passes. The all round technical quality translated into Arsenal dominating Boro on all aspects.

The win ensures that the Gunners pursuit of holding the FA cup is very much alive. I am confident the Gunners stand a high chance in retaining the cup.

Arsenal Fixture List Offers Hope for Top 4 Qualification

In the wake of the North London Derby loss, Arsenal will be hoping to gather resurgence in the run-in. Well, there can be hope as their remaining fixture list looks favorable on paper (disregarding the cliche 'there is no easy game in EPL').

With Liverpool and Chelsea to come to the Emirates, Newcastle and Man United remains as the difficult away fixtures remaining. Looking not far, the next 5 Arsenal fixtures read Leicester (H), Palace (A), Everton (H), QPR (A) and Westham (H). With Arsenal’s quality, these games look winnable.

The Gunners will also gather optimism as their injury fears continue to ease. With the return of Walcott, Ozil and Wilshere (who has returned to full training), the Gunners can boast of enough talent to spur them for a top four finish.

With that said, the defeat at Lane can be a thing of the past if Arsenal can pull better results in the upcoming games.

Arsenal the Losers in the North London Derby

Losing a North London Derby is one of the worst feelings as an Arsenal fan. Give credit to me for finding strength and sobriety to be writing this article. Awful is an understatement of the feeling.

Arsenal were uncharacteristically bereft. The midfield never clicked losing possession on several occasions. It seemed like another masterpiece for Arsenal as they went ahead courtesy of Ozil but Spurs pressing exposed the Arsenal defense.

With a game on Tuesday, Arsenal have the chance to quickly get up their feet and hit the ground running. Meanwhile, Spurs are still celebrating the win that one would think won them the league. Am pretty sure we will topple them come next week.

North London will always be red. Forever a Gooner!
