It is the thing that has caused the most anger and disappointment to the Arsenal fans in recent years, but we believed those days were over. The Gooners have sort of understood that the club were not spending money in the transfer market, while the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City were throwing cash around like confetti at a wedding, but the sale of our best players, especially to our direct Premier League rivals has really hurt us.

Arsenal-target Begovic wants to play “at the highest level”

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views

There have been thousands of Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with the Stoke keeper Asmir Begovic ever since the Potters snapped up Jack Butland in the January transfer window, opening the door for Begovic to move on to bigger and better things.

It was originally thought that both Chelsea and Man United may challenge Arsenal for the talented Bosnian shotstopper, but both of those have two top keepers at the club already, so it looks like Arsenal will now have a clear run for Begovic this summer.

Time for the Fans to stand up and demand our Arsenal back!!!

Who are we to say 'There needs to be change at Arsenal Football Club' by JM

Arsenal Football Club and the clubs board do not know, well they certainly do not take us seriously. Are we as a fan base happy with the last seven years? Are we happy with inconsistency and our goal of finishing just top four which has now turned into a scrap to keep our heads afloat.

Clear lack of ambition by Arsenal Board by RJK

The Arsenal Board and the Manager are taking the fans for granted. They forget the team is only there because of the fans. They continue to charge top dollar for replica shirts, memorabilia, gate charges, meals and drinks yet they are unwilling to change a philosophy which has failed time and time again (8 years now).

Transfer Window Review – is our team better than previous years?

The Offside - Arsenal at related • 3 views

Due to the fact that for the close of the transfer window we had a game following up a few short days later, we didn't get much of a chance to have a good look at what Arsenal achieved during the window. Sure, at the moment the team is looking pretty solid defensively, and that just goes to show that the key to success does not revolve around signing expensive, world-class players whenever we lose some games.

In Praise of Almunia

It's not so much the fact of players leaving that riles fans, it's more the manner of their leaving.

Which is why I want to single out Manuel Almunia for a round of virtual applause (more of him later).

Not all players can guarantee the affection of supporters once they have moved, but they can guarantee a degree of respect.

There is no doubt that Arsenal have suffered the loss some of significant players over the last few seasons but that is a fact of life in modern day football; players come and players move on and they move on for a variety of reasons, some for money, some for ambition, some for the love of the club they were brought up in and some are pushed.
