In what has since come to be known as 'Pizzagate' or 'The Battle of the Buffet', Manchester United beat the Gunners 2-0 in a suitably tempestuous encounter on 24th October, 2004, thus bringing the away side's 49-game unbeaten run to an abrupt halt.

Arsenal smash record for midfield mesutro

In a summer that was meant to be a sea change, we almost didn't even get the bloody doors open, let alone blow them off. In the end though, Arsenal's whole transfer record went up in smoke with the signing of Mesut Özil for a staggering £42.5m.

That's Mesut Ozil, formerly of Real Madrid, mainstay of Germany, a truly world-class talent, and let's go a bit overboard about this because a) it's the biggest statement since Bergkamp with a nod to Sol Campbell and b) it finally proves that we can now operate in football's rarefied upper atmosphere.

In a few years people will probably look back on this summer and wonder what was different from previous years at Arsenal.

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.

I still have my misgivings about the squad, but there seems little point in recycling them now.
