Arsenal given MORE derby incentive after Man City fluff lines

Arsenal fans found out to our cost just how well organised and frustrating Middlesbourough can be, as Aitor Karanka´s team held the Gunners to a draw a couple of weeks ago to halt our growing momentum and stop us going clear at the top of the Premier League. The newly promoted team worked extremely hard [.

An incredible end to an incredible Premier League season saw Arsenal make it 21 years in a row that we have finished above our north London rivals Tottenham in the league table and it has sparked wild celebrations and widespread gloating from the Gunners faithful, but when the dust settles will the latest St.

Just when it looked like the season, for Arsenal fans at least, was all neatly wrapped up with disappointment as wrapping paper and with a nice big ribbon of despair to top it off, a light has appeared at the end of the tunnel. It is only a faint light as yet but it does [...]

Would unhappy Arsenal fans swap places with Tottenham rivals?

There are a lot of unhappy Arsenal fans around at the moment for sure. We should have won the Premier League title this season because Man City, Chelsea and Man United left the door open. We should have at least made it past the first knockout phase of the Champions League once in the last [...]

Happy St. Totteringham´s day Arsenal fans! It may not have had the excitement and nail biting climax that we have seen quite a few times (too many) in recent seasons, but the battle for football dominance in north London is over for another year at least and it is the red and white side that [...]

After nine years without a trophy, Arsenal finally have an FA cup to celebrate. Since Patrick Vieira scored the final penalty against Man United to lift the trophy in 2005, Arsenal fans have had to take some serious ribbing from their rivals, but now it is time for some payback. The spuds are too easy, [.

I know that it is frustrating waiting for Arsenal to announce some signings. In fact the club have still not officially confirmed the transfer of the young French striker Yaya Sanogo. So we are susceptible to doubt and concern, and one particular story doing the rounds in the media at the minute is almost designed to have Gooners grinding their teeth in frustration, but it will not happen.

What should Arsenal expect to achieve next season? by FD

Like any Arsenal fan, I'm all too aware of how many seasons we've gone without adding to our silverware collection. That minor detail hasn't prevented me from approaching each new campaign with a feeling of optimism – well, OK, perhaps last year's RVP defection dampened those sunny spirits a little.

Could Arsenal Win The League?

Hands up all those who breathed a huge sigh of relief at the end of the first 45 minutes of yesterday's game? Moi. I say that because I think like most I didn't have a clue what to expect. Usually, we get minor changes enabling us to have a pretty good idea of what to expect but with last season's and this window's signings everything seems to be up in the air making it very difficult to calculate what to expect.

Is Gareth Bale a faker or a miracle man?

While we are waiting for some confirmation on Cazorla, RvP etc. I thought we could enjoy the controversy surrounding the Spuds and their miraculous medical team. Gareth Bale was close to death earlier this week after the Liverpool player Charlie Adam had the temerity to tackle him during a pre-season game.

Will Arsenal ever become a lean, mean, defending machine again?

Over the last few weeks, we have had in-depth discussions about whether we need to strengthen our midfield this summer, as well as how we should fit in our freshly signed strikers, Giroud and Podolski. Clearly, these are areas we can all get very excited about, but the area we have not been talking about for a while is our 49 PL-goals leaking defence.

Arsenal’s 2011-12 Season: The Movie

Panic ye not.

Our mighty and classy club has not taken a leaf out of Totteringham's book and released a DVD celebrating our third place finish.

The title was, of course, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

Arsène needs “A Man”

I think we need a new "Man". Someone who knows about tactics, defence, motivation and substitutions. Trouble is this:  I like Arsène and want him to stay. So what's to be done?

Some say that behind every great man there is a great woman. To that I say "whatever". However, I do think that behind many great men there is "His Man".

Champions League dilemma

Arsenal Arsenal at related • 0 views

Despite finishing third and having the luxury of going straight in to the Group Stages of the Champions League, on Saturday night there is the very real prospect of Chelsea becoming the first London team to win the Champions League.

Chelsea beating Bayern would ordinarily be reason enough for us to throw ourselves off the nearest bridge but this year it will bring some pleasure as the cretins down the road will be crying off to play their European football on Channel 5.

Yes, we finished third. Yes, there was a St. Totteringham's day after all (albeit much delayed). Yes, we finally displayed some of that oft-referred-to mental strength. But I for one am glad we have seen the back of 2011-12. I'd rather sit through a Justin Bieber Rebecca Black duet concert than experience what I experienced last season again.

What’s Your Highlight of the Season?

Szczesny: Future Legend or Egotistical Flapper?

I am perplexed, after last weeks draw with Norwich several fans came onto this blog to slam Szczesny for his performance during the game. Whilst I admit it was not his best game I was shocked at the tone of some of the criticism:

Szczesny is learning on the job and cost us valuable points with his inexperience

Do you know what, we are pointing finger at everybody, but the guy that did lose us the game, ie Mr Bloody Szczesny.

These are words I never thought I would utter, if we qualify against all odds for the Champions League again this year I would like to see Arsène Wenger resign as Arsenal manager.

Those who know me, will think I have gone stark raving mad. This wish has nothing to do with whether I think he can take the team further, if he is too old, that he doesn't want to spend money or any of the other criticisms aimed at our manager.

Gunners can go eight points clear with a win over Wigan.

Arsenal Insider at related • 0 views

Tonight's visit by Wigan presents The Gunners with the opportunity to widen the gap between us and the chasing pack of assorted Chavs, Magpies, and Spuds. An eight point lead over the last two and ten over the other one would be a morale booster for us and a demoralising blow for them.

This is an opportunity which must be grabbed with both hands, make no mistake Wigan will be a tough nut to crack, their last outing was a morale boosting one nil win over the title favourites who were, admittedly, not at their best and there were the usual contentious refereeing decisions.
