When Arsenal finished off a very strong second part of last season in style with our demolition of Aston Villa at Wembley. It made the Gunners the most successful club ever in the FA cup and gave people the belief that Arsenal were finally looking capable of winning the Premier League again. So we did [.
Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger have had our fair share of moans about the Premier League officials over the years and often with good reason. And for a team that has often been filled with creative, technically adept but not necessarily physical players, the Gunners disciplinary record has been pretty poor.
Arsenal and Tottenham have had an ongoing rivalry/enmity since 1913 when Arsenal had the audacity to move from Woolwich in South East London to Highbury in London N5 just up the road from Tottenham, who played at White Hart Lane in London N17. The Tottenham supporters were still reeling from actions taken by the FA in 1919 when they promoted Arsenal from League Division 2 to League Division 1 despite the fact that they had finished below Tottenham the previous season.
It would be pretty amazing for the Arsenal and Chile star Alexis Sanchez to be able to play any part at all on the Premier League opening weekend, but this is Alexis we are talking about Gooners and he has already proved a number of times since coming to north London that we have a [...]
There are many reports saying that Fernando Llorente's agent is in London for talks with Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, although Man United and Real Madrid (really?) are also said to be in the running, with the Gunners being favourites to sign the out-of-favour Juventus failure for a fee of around £8.
I think that the Arsenal boss is doing exactly the right thing in the latest episode of the verbal battle between him and the manager of our Premier League rivals Chelsea. There is no doubt that Jose Mourinho will keep trying to get under the skin of Arsene Wenger, both before and after the two [...]
There has already been talk about this possible transfer to Arsenal being done this summer, but it was all quite a while back now and with no mention of it in the papers recently, I assumed that the move for Christophe Lollichon was not going to happen. Maybe Arsene Wenger and his transfer team decided [.
On the one hand it would be better for Arsenal if we take on a full strength Chelsea side in the Community Shield on Sunday, as long as the Gunners end up with the trophy back in north London of course. But the most important thing is for us to win the game and for [...]
Mourinho right to say Arsenal should be winning titles by DN While I know that Jose Mourinho's words this week on the subject of Arsenal were just an attempt to put some pressure on the club and Arsene Wenger ahead of the Community Shield and the start of the Premier League, I do think that [...]

Chelsea's final pre-season game before the Community Shield on Sunday ended in a victory over reigning European champions Barcelona, as the Blues concluded their tour of North America in the capital city of Washington DC.
We knew that it would not take long and with Arsenal due to face Chelsea in the Community Shield game at Wembley on Sunday before the Premier League season kicks off next weekend, Jose Mourinho has not been able to help himself from having a dig during one of his pre-season press conferences. I very [.
Sunday's Community Shield is all about one player. We've taken a look at whether Mourinho made the right choice and how much Arsenal will truly benefit from their new man, Petr Cech. by RC The Community Shield focuses on two teams. The Premier League Champions and the FA Cup winners. However, this Sunday's encounter between [.
The Questions for THE Quest by SB The Quest for the title continues. I believe this is the season where we are and will be considered serious title contenders. All the teams (title contenders) have strengthened and so did we. We strengthened defense. Petr Cech is the biggest part of this upgrade and Gabriel has [.
Not a game into the season and the mind games have begun already by KM Well, well, now. The Arsenal transfer news may be as dry as the Sahara desert, but Jose Mourinho's mouth was full of wet words for Arsenal once again. I mean how do you not just hate the guy. His methods [...]
It is definitely the biggest and most exciting of all the Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds at the minute and even though the transfer of Karim Benzema from Real Madird to the Gunners may have seemed just a pope dream at the beginning of the summer, there was a growing belief that it might [.
For the last few transfer windows there have always been Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with a possible move for the exciting young talent Julian Draxler. But there has always seemed to be something in the way of the Gunners and his club Schalke getting the deal done and now it looks like it could [.
This may be a little harsh on the Arsenal players Jack Wilshere and Mathieu Flamini, who in theory could form a third Arsenal central midfield of their own, but I think that there are two clear options for Arsene Wenger to select to start for the Gunners. I am assuming that what we have seen [...]
Arsenal are two players away from winning the EPL Discuss by MA Almost everyone seems to be agreeing with that statement, apart from the one person who really has the say, Arsene. Interestingly they are all pointing at a center foward and a recognized DM. So my question is, why do "we" think so? [...
Sport loves a bit of drama. It makes it compelling for viewers, supporters and the players alike when there is a little off-the-field action that makes the on-field action spicy. We are talking about the Gunners' prodigal son Cesc Fabregas. The Spaniard was a crowd favourite during his time at the Emirates Stadium.
A lot of Arsenal fans and members of the football media in general were talking about our England international midfielder Jack Wilshere at this point last year and suggesting that he was facing a very important and perhaps pivotal season in his football career. Wilshere had hardly featured for England at the World Cup finals [.
You have to feel sorry for all those football journalists out there trying to keep the Arsenal transfer rumour mill going with not even a trickle of help from Arsene Wenger. A nice early deal with the signing of Petr Cech and then nothing is perhaps why they are getting a bit desperate. The rumours [.
