Arsenal’s Best Ever Transfer Manager

Arsenal Arsenal at related • 0 views

We judge managers on many criteria, the most obvious of which is winning trophies.

But not far behind the acquiring of silverware comes the ability to find great players and bring them to The Arsenal.

In those stakes there are some interesting contenders for the crown of our club's best ever "picker".

Tactical Change Required to Bring Back Glory Days

Arsenal News News News at related • 0 views

The last couple of seasons, seeing our midfield overrun, Wenger changed from 4-4-2 to 4-3-3. This added more players in central midfield where too often we had lost vital games, but the flip-side meant that the striker was isolated.

For 4-3-3 to work you need at least one of your three central midfielders to get into areas to support the striker.

Are Teams Starting To Fear Arsenal Again?

Arsenal Arsenal at related • 2 views

One of the saddest effects of our poor form during 2011 has been seeing how lesser teams no longer fear us.

The psychological advantage of having most opponents assume they would get nothing out of playing us has been whittled away by a series of unfortunate events.

Throwing away a four goal lead at Newcastle; losing to relegation-bound Birmingham in the Carling Cup Final; league defeats to the likes of West Brom, Stoke and Bolton:

All these and more have turned our shiny armour of invincibility into a tattered and battered old coat of rusty chain mail, pock-marked with holes.

What’s your breaking point?

So the dust has settled on a couple of dreadful Arsenal away results, and equally dreadful defensive displays. Obviously, I'm talking about the 8-2 and 4-3 defeats. There have been a lot of people coming out of the woodwork in recent days, using these results as ammunition to have a pop at the manager and also to give their opinion on the direction this club needs to go.

Do new recruits prove Arsenal no longer a ‘big club’?

Like any self respecting football fan, I spent most of yesterday sat in my office scouring Twitter for the latest transfer rumour and staring intently at BBC's sports day live patiently waiting for each auto refreshing nugget of drama to unfold. Not a lot of work was done.

Conversely, those behind the scenes at the Emirates were very busy, something we are not used to from recent deadline days.

Arsenal are still a formidable force, warns Liverpool's Kenny Dalglish

• Liverpool manager defends 'fantastic' Arsène Wenger • 'They have lost Fábregas but it will be a difficult game' With respect to Arsène Wenger, big clubs do sell big players and retain ambition providing they reinvest on the field and not into their bank accounts.

Cesc and Nasri head out of Arsenal

How many big players have we sold in the past? Tons. When a player is not 100% committed to the club both physically and mentally it is best to let them go for the sake of the other ten players on the pitch who are giving a lot more for the side. It doesn't matter how good this player is, when it comes to a team you are all equal, you all have to work tirelessly and give total commitment.

Is a Change of Strategy Needed General Arsene?

Avenell Road at related • 0 views

Today is yet another one of the defining games of the season; we are desperate for the 3 points and just as importantly we don't want to give them to the Chav's.

Our record against the other teams in the so-called "Big Four" in the last season or so is something like one win in ten. It is becoming more than just a coincidence it is becoming embarrassing.

Van Persie Stalls – Wenger Should Show Him the Door

Arsenal News News News at related • 5 views

Robin van Persie's contract expires in summer 2011 and the club has been locked in contract negotiations all season. The club appeared to have offered the Dutch striker £75,000 a week, but van Persie is stalling over signing a new contract.

There was talk earlier that he wanted a buyout clause, which was as low as €5 million.

Arsenal a Top European Club?

Arsenal News News News at related • 2 views

Arsenal are considered one of Europe's top clubs, mainly because we have had some of Europe's top players at the club. Our reputation has created an air of falsehood. Scratch the surface and a completely different picture emerges.

Since Arsene's first season in 1997/98 we have reached two European Finals, losing to Galatasaray on penalties in the UEFA Cup and in 2006 we lost to Barcelona in the Champions League final.

Marc Overmars is back???

Pro Soccer Weekly at related • 17 views
It does appear to be the case that former Dutch International and Arsenal, Ajax, and Barcelona winger Marc Overmars is back after 4 years of not playing professionally. He has been the manager for Dutch second division side Go Ahead Eagles, and he will come out of retirement to play for them. His goal is to lead the team by example and presumably get them back into the Eredivise.

The Blind Truth

Danny Blind.........wasn't he that Dutch bloke with the dodgy perm who brought down Paul Ince for the penalty at Euro 96?

It seems the current AFC Ajax Director of football is remembered more for his resemblance of a Harry Enfield sketch than his playing career.

A complete travesty if you ask me.

Spanish giants Barcelona have long had a relationship with Dutch Players and managers. From the Johann Cruyff era to Kluivert, Cocu, Davids, Van Basten, Overmars and Van Bommel days, Barcelona have built up a reputation as being one of the few clubs that pride themselves in nurturing Dutch talent.

Pre-Pre Kiev news, Mineiro no go + Celtic Chief Exec linked

Arsenal depart for Kiev today and we're still somewhat in the dark regarding injuries. Some reports say Nasri will be fit, others say he won't.

There's no news about Eboue but it's believed Gael Clichy has declared himself 'A-OK, Hunky Dory' and 'Right as rain' for tomorrow's match. Which is good news but I suppose we have to wait until a bit later until the squad is announced before we get too overjoyed.

In both 2006 and 2008, before respective World Cup and European Championship tournaments, in this Blog, I waxed lyrical about Holland.

After fairly promising starts to both tournaments, they faded and ultimately left little impression.

Este sí que es un tipo con suerte. De todas las guerras en las que se ha metido ha salido airoso, un superviviente, vamos. Da igual que no tomara las mejores decisiones. Al final la suerte siempre ha acudido al rescate.

Firme opositor al nuñismo, fue lo suficientemente oportunista como para integrarse en la candidatura de Elefant Blau en 1998 (y perder contra Núñez), en la de Lluis Bassat en 2000 (cayó contra Gaspart) y de crear su propio grupo electoral para traicionar a Bassat y vencerle en 2003.

I have a confession to make; a terrible, shameful confession. I was born in N1. Not an awful lot I could have done about it obviously, but I still feel the shame. Thankfully my Dad was an enlightened soul and supported THFC. As a kid he would escort me to the odd game with a season ticket borrowed from my wealthy uncle in Enfield.
