It is always strange that some teams are considered to be bogey teams, but there is no other word to describe Chelsea's superiority over Arsenal this century. It is five years since the Gunners beat our London rivals and amazingly we haven't scored a goal in the last five League meetings, although three of the [.
The young Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin has been a dream since he was added to the Gunners first team by default, But all Gooners have been worried about Barcelona coming back to pinch their old academy player. We all know how long the tapping up of Cesc Fabregas went on to persuade him to return [.
Even if Arsenal had come away from the Hawthorns with a point (and yes Santi Cazorla and Joel Campbell I am looking at you) then all the talk among Arsenal fans and the football media today would not have been so much about what went wrong against West Brom and whether this is the start [...]
Have Arsenal lost our ambition? by ED Ohh the joys of being an Arsenal fan... ain't it grand folks. We begin the season every year with such optimism and jubilance believing that anything is possible with our squad. Champions League, League titles, you name it the odds are chalked up in Arsenal's favour, but it [.
WHO? WHAT? WHERE? WHY IS ONE CALLED "WORLD CLASS"? by JA Hey everyone, this transfer window being the usual... huh? Smoke and mirrors from the boss, what's not to like? So we've only signed a 33 year old Czech Republic goal keeper, shirt 33 who's played 333 games in the premier league, and we're going [.
Arsenal skipper Mikel Arteta has penned a new contract with the club and has ended speculation from all quarters. The Spanish midfielder had actually agreed a new one-year deal months ago. But, the protracted delay by the 33-year-old in signing the contract gave rise to suspicions that Arteta would be following the curse of Fabregas, [.
Hleb makes the Gunners' day! by IO How do you know you are an Arsenal fan? It is how you react when you read some news about Arsenal; like the one in the Metro about how Alexandr Hleb sold Fabregas a cold shoulder before the Belarus Euro 2016 qualifier game with Spain in Skopje. Hleb [...]
Arsene Wenger has been talking about how Arsenal and the other Big Teams can challenge Jose Mourinho's Chelsea for the Premier League title next season, and admits that some astute purchases in the summer transfer window can have a big effect on who wins next years trophy. Wenger thinks that the Gunners have a very [.
A letter to Jose Mourinho by MA Hello Mr. Jose let me start by a congratulations, for frustrating us by denying us any penetration. For securing the mighty BPL by some sheer luck and tactical corruption. For ensuring Arsene's run against you is nothing but continued frustration. And giving your darling "the media" pure happiness [.
It is Tuesday so it is time for the weekly Arsenal bashing guff that is produced by the hack Adrian Durham and once again his target is Mesut Ozil, and the manager, team and club in general of course, with a side dish of dismissal and disrespect to us Gooners that are stupid enough to [...]
Just like the poster in agent Fox Mulder´s office, Arsenal fans `want to believe´ or at least we did, that our former captain Cesc Fabregas still had Arsenal at his heart. He said as much even after leaving us to join his boyhood club Barcelona, so we were all shocked to see him join our [...]
The Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin is already well on his way to becoming a firm favourite with the Arsenal fans, not just for the brilliant and battling performances since he returned early from his loan spell to be at the heart of the Gunners turnaround in form and rise up the Premier League table.
Something definitely changed in January that got Arsenal started on their magnificent winning run. Many Gooners put it down to the fact that we started getting all our injured players back, but what was the real reason? Having a fully fit squad brings its own problems, like getting the ex-injured players back on the pitch [.
The football media has decided to give the Arsenal fans a big scare with some sensationalised headlines suggesting that the Gunners could be on the verge of losing our young Spanish right back Hector Bellerin to his boyhood club Barcelona, where he spent his formative years at their famous La Masia academy.
'Shere Willpower is necessary in order to overcome the obstacles of injuries and off-field distractions by Demitri The beginning of something special Jack Wilshere burst onto the scene for Arsenal, in 2008, at the age of 16 years and 256 days, breaking Cesc Fabregas' record of being the club's youngest player to feature in the [.
Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger have been known to have a bit of a moan about the poor decisions by the match officials that go against us. And there are plenty of examples of that. I understand that smaller clubs feel that the bigger clubs get an unfair advantage from the referees and to be [...]
Arsenal fans were understandably put out in the summer when Arsene Wenger decided against activating the buy-back clause to bring his prodigal son Cesc Fabregas back to the Emirates, but now Alex Song has also revealed that Wenger turned down the opportunity to bring Alex Song back to the fold. Song, who was a mostly [.
A report has been moving round the possibility of Mesut Ozil leaving Arsenal in the January window. Now on one hand it does look a bit silly doesn't it? I mean his form hasn't been the best of late but I don't think Wenger would snub a Fabregas return if he didn't have faith in [...]
Arsene Wenger was clearly frustrated after Arsenal succumbed to another away defeat at the hands of one our big rivals. But the Frenchman also claimed after the match that the Gunners were unlucky, as an Arsenal.com report shows. His main example was the penalty claim on 63 minutes when Wilshere's shot was blocked by the [.
Dear Cesc On the day of a great London derby, I am writing this letter to a person who made me fall in love with a club of which he is no longer a part of. Even more perturbing he ended up playing for Arsenal's biggest rivals. Yes I say it again it was disturbing, [...]
It is not easy for anyone connected with Arsenal Football Club to rise above the taunts and mind games of Jose Mourinho, but it is crucially important the the players and manager do their best to ignore any little digs the Chelsea boss aims in our direction between now and kick off at Stamford Bridge [.
For anyone that has watched Chelsea's pre season, you would know that Cesc Fabregas has slotted into the team as if he has been here for years. Tonight at Burnley, Fabregas produced a moment of magic that astounded everyone!
Arsenal fans HAVE to be kicking themselves watching his display tonight.
I am beginning to think that Arsene Wenger is picking his captains every year in the full knowledge that they will be leaving Arsenal the following year! Everyone knew that Cesc Fabregas was trying to force through a move to Barcelona for years. We were also fully aware that RVP would be in the last [.
I got a lot of stick from some Arsenal fans after writing an article last year about the Barcelona and Argentina star Lionel Messi possibly coming to play for Arsenal. Now I am not saying that I was right, because I wrote the story as an April Fool's Day piece, but amazingly, The Express are [...]
I just wanted to share a photo released by Chelsea on their Instagram account yesterday from the first training session in Austria. It's a photo I don't think any of us ever thought we would see especially when we first heard the news that Cesc Fabregas was being linked with a move to Chelsea!
What next for Ramsey? by TJ After a remarkable season for Aaron Ramsey which saw him score 16 goals and providing 9 assists, many will start to ask how Ramsey should progress from here, The world has seen what he can do. He was without a doubt the star in Arsenal's trophy winning season, often [...]
First of all Arsenal fans, do not ever make the mistake of thinking that anything Jose Mourinho says about Arsene Wenger and Arsenal is not calculated to get under the skin. We know that the Portuguese manager has had a personal issue with our Frenchman, going back to when he first arrived in the Premier [.
One round of ovation for Fabregas, please By AondoaverK When Cesc Fabregas decided to join Chelsea, many Arsenal fans had divided opinions. For many, it was unbelievable to pass the chance of resigning one of the most adored players of all time. But it was understandable that his playing position had enough quality and dept [.
Cesc Fabregas wants to play with Lionel Messi again - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Former Barcelona midfielder has revealed his desire to link up with Lionel Messi once again. The Chelsea midfielder's comments will fuel further speculations regarding the Argentine's future at Barcelona.
No doubt, you would have read headlines within the last 24 hours regarding a quote made by Cesc Fabregas about Lionel Messi. In some cases, these headlines have been taken totally out of context and Messi will NOT be coming to Chelsea!
We have seen Chelsea linked with Messi for two seasons now as firstly, we heard that Adidas wanted to take him away from the Nike backed Barcelona and they would be prepared to pay the majority of the transfer fee.
Chelsea travelled to the newly promoted Burnley side at Turf Moor knowing that it potentially could be a difficult game. After going a goal down, Chelsea reacted fantastically well, with three goals in seventeen minutes to win the game.
Thibaut Courtios was named as the man between the sticks for Chelsea with a back four of Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry(c) and Azpilicueta ahead of him.

In a strange turn of events in Spain, It's being reported that Jose Mourinho has made a shock £20m bid to bring Pedro Rodriguez to Stamford Bridge.
Now I say this is a strange turn of events because the 27 year-old had recently signed a new deal at Barcelona with a release fee clause inserted into his contract believed to be in the region of 150m Euros.
According to the press, Gary Cahill is about to be rewarded for his fantastic performances in recent seasons with a new four-year contract. If you ask me, that signing is just as important as Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa!
What a bargain Cahill has proven to be. Signed for just £7m in 2012, you look at him now and would value him at least three times that amount in the current market.
