Dear Arsenal Football Club by Big Gun

Attention: Stanley Kroenke, Ivan Gazidis and Arsene Wenger.
As a customer, I would like to complain about several issues that need to be addressed and I trust it will be taken sincerely and with utmost concern.

These issues at hand are generally the flippant and apathetic attitude taken towards fans of late.

Arsenal fans celebrate mediocrity yet again whilst silverware goes begging by Adam Kemp

Arsenal fans will be glad to see the back of a season that has proved the most difficult during Wengers reign. I was embarrassed to see the players celebrating like they won the title as they should have been reserved with a fourth placed finish.

The Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey still believes that Arsene Wenger's team is not only good enough to beat Bayern Munich, but can still win the trophy. Before the Gunner's (weakened) team lost to Blackburn this weekend they had gone five games without a loss, including four wins, and Ramsey thinks this shows that they can beat anyone.

Will Arsenal end eight-year trophy drought this season? by MG

Arsenal have two chances to win silverware this season, with Wednesday's FA Cup replay against Swansea taking on massive importance

On Saturday 21 May 2005, around 30,000 Arsenal supporters celebrated at Wembley after the Gunners won the FA Cup on penalties, although the fans couldn't have predicted this would be the last time that they won any silverware leading into 2013.

Arsene Wenger stated clearly that the Capital One cup was bottom of his list of priorities for Arsenal, just above the colour scheme for the toilets. If the Frenchman was to have a quick look at some of the comments on this site, however, he would be in no doubt whatsoever that some silverware is right at the top of most Gooners' priority list.

Five Arsenal myths revisited

Arsene Wenger is principled:

"We do not want to sell our players - so all the players who have contracts will stay here unless we decide otherwise. We want to keep our best players. We have answered that in nearly 80% of our press conferences and at some stage it has to stop, because the past has shown that this question is useless.

Can Santi bring Arsenal the presents they crave?

Latest sport news networks have quoted Santi Cazorla as believing he can help his new club Arsenal finally win some silverware again after becoming the club's latest high-profile summer signing.

The Spaniard is certainly the calibre of player Arsene Wenger needed to add to his squad but does he now have enough quality and strength in depth to challenge the Manchester clubs and Chelsea for the Premier League title in 2012-13?

Wenger: Arsenal are contenders

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has warned the club's title rivals to not take them lightly as he confidently attempts to lead the new-look Gunners back to the Premier League summit.

The last time Wenger celebrated winning the league was with 'The Invincibles' at the end of the 2003-04 campaign and despite winning the FA Cup the following season, the Frenchman has since suffered seven straight seasons without a trophy.

Cazorla signing brings a much-needed buzz

Arsenal Insider at related • 0 views

When the club finally confirmed on Tuesday after weeks of rumours the signing of Malaga midfielder Santi Cazorla, it brought about an excitement in me, and seemingly Arsenal fans everywhere, that hasn't been felt for a long time.

Perhaps it is simply because he joins other exciting players, Podolski and Giroud, and because we have not yet sold a big player (emphasis on the 'yet'), in what has been a refreshingly enjoyable summer transfer window.

Santi: Former Gunners influenced switch

Arsenal's latest signing Santi Cazorla has partly attributed his decision to move to North London to glowing recommendations from former Gunners Robert Pires and Cesc Fabregas.

Cazorla played alongside Frenchman Pires during the duo's stint at Villarreal and the winger teamed up with Fabregas as recently as this summer's Euro 2012 triumph with Spain.

Nothing is certain but death and taxes... and not losing to Spurs. They may score from the half way line in the last minute, plain for all to see, but it won't be given. They may be 3-0 up at half-time, but we'll score five in the second half. They may believe they have a freekick after one of our players blatantly handballs it, but the ref will play advantage and we will score a goal regardless.

Liverpool's first promotion into the top flight of English football came but a year after the founding of the club in 1892 and it's as well to remind ourselves of the circumstances preceding this first gathering of silverware. For the Liver Birds were actually founded as a splinter group from Everton following an internecine dispute that saw patron, brewer and Tory councillor (ouch) John Houlding and his fellow freemason John McKenna break away.

Make or break season for Arsene Wenger

It seems to some Arsenal supporters that the club is stuck in some sort of time warp and the year is still 2005. Or perhaps it's more similar to the Hollywood film "Groundhog Day" where the same thing keeps happening day after day. But with the Gunners it's the same thing year after year. They fail to win any silverware, but consistently finish in the top four and make the Champions League, where they ultimately get knocked out at various stages of the tournament.
