Arsenal's stuttering start makes Newcastle clash a must-win

Further reaction as Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United were drawn into the UEFA Champions League group stages in Monaco.

After a stuttering start to the season at home, Arsenal might be thankful of being away this weekend at Newcastle.

No goals in either of their games at the Emirates this season has left Arsene Wenger scratching his head. Talk of his team trying to "force it," or finishing being "cyclical," didn't really offer much in the way of explanation to their profligacy in front of goal on their own patch.

"Finishing qualities come and go, and you do not always know why," he said, which is probably as close...

Arsenal must beat minnows to ensure Champions League progression

Last year no Premier League side made it past the Champions League round of 16. How will they fare this year?

If Arsenal could have picked a team to avoid in the draw for the Champions League group stage, it would probably have been Bayern Munich. Pep Guardiola's men have eliminated the Gunners from Europe's elite club competition in two out of the last three seasons, and are one of the favourites to lift the trophy this year. However, Arsenal should not be despondent: ties with Olympiakos and Dinamo Zagreb appear significantly simpler to navigate and should allow them to pass through into the knockout...

Arsenal mascot Gunnersaurus takes on the dizzy penalty challenge

Following in the footsteps of several of their footballing cohorts, Arsenal agreed to take on the Dizzy Goals Challenge as part of the ongoing Global Goals awareness campaign.

Mikel Arteta and Theo Walcott were the two volunteers to step forward, with both players somehow emerging with a 100 percent scoring record.

Not to be outdone, Arsenal's ever-affable club mascot Gunnersaurus also threw his hat into the ring (obviously not literally as it's stitched to his head) and with a little assistance...

Arsenal's scoring struggles must not be ignored, but how can they be fixed?

Gabriele Marcotti doubts that the rumours of Edison Cavani moving from PSG to Arsenal holds much truth considering the transfer window is nearing a close.

"I'm not especially worried because I know we can score goals," Arsene Wenger said as he reacted to Arsenal's fifth scoreless game in their past six, Monday's 0-0 draw with Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium. "I cannot say ... it's not a problem," he continued. "We have to sort it out but usually we score goals at home. I think that will come back."

While the Frenchman is right about the home goal-scoring record (41 of the 71 goals Arsenal scored last season came at the Emirates), their current...

John Stones hands in transfer request as Chelsea ready £40m bid

ESPN FC's Brian McBride thinks a move to Chelsea might be a little premature for young defender John Stones, saying Everton is the perfect environment to learn.
Sky Sports claim John Stones has handed in a transfer request.

As always, Transfer Talk has its finger on the pulse when it comes to the latest rumours and gossip. See all the latest deals here.

TOP STORY: Stones hands in transfer request as Chelsea ready £40m bid

After having bids of £20 million, £26m and £30m knocked back from Everton, The Guardian reports that Chelsea are readying a new £40m bid for young defender John Stones.

The Times early on Tuesday reported that Stones was set to submit a formal transfer request in an attempt...

Arsenal's malaise under Wenger goes deeper than any transfer can fix

Both Simon Mignolet and Petr Cech were in fine form as Arsenal and Liverpool settled for a goalless draw at the Emirates Stadium.
The ESPN FC crew discuss Arsenal's match against Liverpool and comment that Arsenal did not make the best of their chances.

The Arsene Wenger hokey-pokey has become an English tradition in the past five years. It begins as early as August with a wave of optimism, lasts until a bad result or two. It then continues ad nauseam, until May when Arsenal finish in the top four and, more recently, win a cup.

Two years ago the evaporation of belief began on the opening day of the season when Aston Villa won at the Emirates. It's starting early this year, too, but not spectacularly so. West Ham's shock victory this month didn't...
