20 Years of Arsenal

There was no better way to finish the season. The trophy drought came to a close, and London turned red for a weekend that millions of Gooners will remember. Arsené lifted the cup once again, and the professor will carry on at the club that he's built in the 21st century.

Are you an Arsenal Fan or a glory-hunter?

Arsenal sky high ahead of a clash with the Bluebirds

Hard to believe we have manoeuvred the banana skin that is November with such aplomb. Even more so when you consider the press decide to pick up on Flamini's sleeves instead of really praising Arsenal for their start to the season. Top of one of the toughest Champions League groups I have ever seen and with a four point gap over teams that many believed would walk away with the Premier League, we can't really ask for any more.

On Tuesday there was an almost empty stadium at the 80th minute apart from a few diehards and 9,000 jubilant mutants. We started to discuss this yesterday and with little time to prepare a needed post, here are my thoughts .....

If this just happened at Arsenal I would be more concerned. Sadly, it happens at many London grounds.

In the eyes of many, Arsenal vs Dortmund is a dream match. Both clubs play to attack, attack, attack, attack, and attack. Both sides play to entertain their fans. And their Champions League match in North London did not disappoint.

Arsenal forward Theo Walcott grabbed an equaliser for England in tonight's clash with Scotland. He showed a good turn of pace, cut inside a defender before squeezing the ball in at the near post.

And in 1951, there was light on Arsenal's pitch

The match finished Arsenal 3-2 Glasgow Rangers. There were 62,000 in attendance, and the date was October 17, 1951. If it looks both surreal and completely normal, that's because there are two senses of novelty at play, for the crowd and for a fan in 2013.

Plenty To Chew On With The Canaries And Toffees In Town

Being out of the cups certainly seems to suit this Arsenal side. Finally showing the sort of form that deserted us at the start of the season, even our Ivorian Messi Gervinho is finally getting back in on the action. Yet when you take a step back, it's all rather frustrating. The defensive stability which looks set to bookmark our season was not there at a time which could have defined our season, and players who spent time in and out of the side playing poorly seem to have found a fighting spirit and determination that could ultimately have helped end the anxious wait for silverware.

I have to say today's papers did make for pleasurable reading on the way to work, despite the fact that Europe's most elite competition now excludes Great Britain (a la Euro). Of course its prestige is worth remembering having just watched Spurs slug their way through a competition that draws comparisons similar to those made with Taken and Taken 2.

Not only are they matches against our closest rivals, but once again this year Arsenal find themselves all but out of trophy competitions and scrapping with both London rivals, Tottenham and Chelsea, for the coveted Champions League spot.

Arsenal fans need to stop Battering Ramsey

It seems that some Arsenal fans are determined to think the worst of Aaron Ramsey and would be perfectly happy if he never played for the Gunners again. I agree that he has not rediscovered the form that had people predicting a glittering career for the Welshman before his progress was halted by a horrific double fracture of his right leg, which kept him out for nearly a year.
