Christian Eriksen didn't hang around when opening the scoring for Tottenham against Manchester United at Wembley on Wednesday night.

Directly from kick-off, Jan Vertonghen launched a ball forward to Harry Kane, who glanced a header into the patch of Dele Alli, who farted the ball into the path of Eriksen, who tucked it past David De Gea all in the space of 11 blistering seconds.

How many chances did Gervinho expect at Arsenal?

I was absolutely stunned today to read that Arsene Wenger and Arsenal have come in for criticism from the departed Ivorian international striker Gervinho. The 26-year old was allowed to leave for Italy and the Serie A side Roma this summer, when Wenger admitted that his confidence was not likely to return at the Emirates.

Most of the Arsenal fans had been calling for the Ivorian international Gervinho to be sold and replaced for some time. Arsene Wenger finally agreed with the fans and sold the forward to the Serie A club Roma last week. The problem is, that some fans are unhappy about us selling off Gervinho, not because of his effectiveness for the club, but because we haven't replaced him.

Let's end the Arsenal trophy drought! by AH

Has it ever occurred to you that perhaps our trophy drought may not have gone on for so long if we'd taken the domestic cup competitions of the Capital One Cup (formally known as the Carling Cup) and the FA Cup more seriously?

Since the glory days prior to 2005-6, Wenger has always used these competitions to try out new talented and upcoming players and so as a result the Gunners have sometimes suffered in these competitions.

Despite being just 24-years old, Theo Walcott is now one of Arsenal's senior players at the club as he looks to enter his 9th successive campaign with Arsenal following his arrival from Southampton in the 2005/2006 season.

It may not seem that long but as a player with that much experience at the club he is now seen as one of the most influential off the pitch.

I had to do a double take when I saw this story in the newspaper this morning, then I checked the date to see if it was April Fool's Day, although that does not necessarily the story true. Apparently, the Turkish champions Galatasaray want to sign the Arsenal and Ivory Coast forward Gervinho in the summer, and they are willing to pay £12 million for the privilege.

Arsenal triumph 2-0 in Munich but miss out on potential Champions League glory. by Adam Kemp

Arsene Wenger is the man who picks the Arsenal squad and starting eleven, and sometimes he makes changes that people don't agree with. Facing an uphill struggle against Bayern Munich with a 3-1 deficit from the home leg, you can understand that Wenger, being realistic, doesn't expect Arsenal to progress to the quarter-finals.

Arsenal are in a downward spiral and will struggle to get out of it claims the croaky voiced manager of Tottemham. The defeat at White Hart Lane on Sunday has broken the spirit of the Gunners while Tottenham are sitting on top of the world, apparently. I'm sure that Villas-Boas would love that to be true, but I very much doubt he really believes it.

You can say what you like about Arsene Wenger, and he has certainly come under a lot more criticism this season than ever before, but there is no doubt that he inspires the respect, admiration and gratitude of his Arsenal players. Just last week we saw Jack Wilshere give an emotional post match interview in which you could tell that he was hurt by how much the pressure that Wenger was under and insisted that it was the players that should bear the responsibility for the bad performances and results.

Is it time for Arsenal to give up on Gervinho?

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views

I wrote an article before the Arsenal defeat by Blackburn yesterday, calling for the inclusion of the Ivorian forward Gervinho in the team. My argument was that it was the ideal time for him to get his floundering Arsenal career back on track, and I still think it was. His confidence had been boosted by good performances and goals at the African Cup of Nations, and a home game against lower league opposition should have given him a great chance to show off his skills.
