Liverpool are off down South on Saturday evening as they prepare to face rivals Arsenal. The Reds have had a far better start to the season than anyone expected and I think it's fair to say so too have Arsene Wenger's side. Arsenal are currently top of the pile on 22 points with both Chelsea and ourselves tightly behind them on 20 points.
Chelsea visited the Emirates last night and defeated Arsenal 2-0 in the Capital One Cup. The London Derby was highly anticipated because it mean both Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger would get the chance to meet once more on English soil in opposite dugouts.
Though just a League Cup match, both sides fielded quite strong teams, but it was Chelsea who were better on the evening.
Arsene Wenger is not asking the Arsenal fans to bring laser pens to the game to blind the opponents, or to sneak some dodgy Lasagne into their catering supplies, but the Frenchman does think that Gooners have a big part to play in helping Arsenal to success this season. He is talking about the support, [.

Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong has been taking aim at former Gunners Samir Nasri and Alex Song.

New Arsenal signing Mesut Ozil says he would have joined Arsenal for free.

Arsenal cannot blame stadium for not spending by Big Gun
Dear Arsenal Fans, I would like to clarify something that came up in a recent blog concerning the Emirates Stadium debt. There are a few fans on this site who believe that the stadium debt is what has been hindering Arsenal from buying world class, quality players.
Arsenal cult hero Emmanuel Eboue has been singing the chants that he wants fans to sing for him when he returns to the Emirates Stadium with Galatasaray this weekend. Eboue burst into a short repertoire of his own chants during an interview with the Gunners' in-house media team. He revealed he wants fans to sing: [.
Ian Wright says he cannot understand why Luis Suarez would leave Liverpool for Arsenal. The 26-year-old Uruguayan striker wants Champions League football this season, but ex-England international Wright has echoed the comments of others who think that leaving Anfield for the Emirates is a sideways move.
It's the 1st of August, meaning little more than a few weeks to the start of the 2013/14 Premier League campaign. Are we excited? We should be, but unfortunately the lack of transfer business surrounding Arsenal seems to have drained our emotions a little bit.
It's getting to that point in the transfer window now. There's only one month left and Arsenal have done barely anything in the last two and half months since the season ended. We technically haven't spent a pound yet and already have a net profit of at least £3m which will rise when we sell Gervinho and potentially Bendtner.
Liverpool have slapped a £55m asking price on Luis Suarez after the striker accepted that there is no clause in his contract that forces the club to accept offers of more than £40m. The Uruguay international was the subject of the infamous £40,000,001 bid from Arsenal after his representatives claimed that it would trigger a [.
I see a lot of Arsenal fans on regular basis say that the way to show the club that we have had enough of the same old stories and lack of ambition both on the pitch and in terms of transfers, is to protest by not going to games at the Emirates.
We are all very anxious about what has/hasn't transpired so far during this transfer window. It is no question that the Arsenal squad needs, at the very least, two additional world class players to ensure top 4 next season and perhaps a trophy. After an almost 9 year trophy drought, after being possibly the best club in the world in 04/05, I think it is about time the board and management at Arsenal put glory and success first above balancing the books.
My fellow Arsenal fans. Here's the thing, I'm getting fed up with the lack of any tranfer activity in our beloved club. Nothing, nada, zero, zip! So, to vent my (and your) frustration, I came up with the next plan. Next weekend the Emirates cup comes to London and with it, the perfect time for showing our discontent.
There are a few developments about the Luis Suarez to Arsenal transfer in the papers and on sports websites today. That does not necessarily mean they are accurate, of course, but they may give an indication as to how things are proceeding.
It does look as if Suarez is keen to join Arsenal, because his first choice destination, Real Madrid, seem intent on prising Gareth Bale away from Tottenham.
The summer transfer window of 2013/14 had the potential to be the most dramatic of all transfer windows. But was it? At the start of the summer (how long ago does that feel?), for the first time in the history of the Premier League the top three teams changed their manager. The return of the [...]
