Realistic goals for next seasonby AlexTheGooner I think that Arsenal can look back on the 2013-14 season as a success.

Arsene Wenger is the longest serving manager in the Barclays Premier League at present. That alone is a great compliment. A manger overseeing over a thousand games in this cut-throat era of football management is very rare. Throw in the three league titles and four FA cup victories and you have a legend.
WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A GOONER? by RS I know all of you would be sad right now and furious on our team's performance. But Gooners, I want to ask each one of you some very basic questions. What if we don't win the title, should we stop supporting our team? And stop getting [...]

There is a strange feeling around Arsenal Football Club at the minute, especially among the players. It is an unusual sensation, characterised by being able to sleep soundly at night without waking up in a cold sweat after having a nightmare about being chased by a crazed potato(or spud) down the Seven Sisters road.
What can Arsenal Fan's expect from this new Era at the Club? by Josh09
So what does a new era at Arsenal really mean, well Chief Executive Ivan Gazidis came out quickly in an interview shortly after the premier league season was over, answering questions on Arsenal's financial situation at the current time, and the views and plans to take the club forward and win trophies.

Being a Londoner there is nothing more frustrating than public transport, especially buses. You find yourself waiting absolutely ages, and then three come along at once. But you wait at the bus stop because you have faith that eventually one will arrive, and you believe that the TFL couldn't be so cruel as to discontinue the bus service just as you get there.
Wilshere has announced something that will give all Arsenal fans a sigh of relief after small reports speculated that perhaps Arsenal could lose one of their star players once again this summer. However this time around the player in question, Jack Wilshere was quick to diminish reports stating; "Obviously, I'm flattered.
After Koscienly's comments yesterday some Arsenal fans seem to be getting on his back. Saying that no player is bigger than the club and he should focus on doing his job as a footballer rather than talking about our business. Now I agree and disagree with what fans are saying.
This article wouldn't be a pleasing sight for most of the Arsenal fans here. I would have come up with some extremely horrifying comments if this was some one else's writing. But in all fairness, I pondered over the plight of Arsenal and the Premier league and couldn't resist sharing them with you.
Many people recently have criticized Arsene Wenger and his transfer policies, they say he is too stubborn and won't sign the players that Arsenal need. I used to agree with this opinion however after watching us finish fourth last weekend, I still think Arsene Wenger is the man for us.
I've mentioned in a couple of previous articles that our form at the tail end of last season was incredibly impressive. However, it goes back a little further than that. On the 1st December last year, we welcomed high flyers Swansea to the Emirates.
The Arsenal Chief Executive Ivan Gazidis yesterday gave his usual rousing speech about Arsenal aiming to win trophies next season, not simply aim for the Top Four. He has vowed to back Arsene Wenger in the transfer market to give the Gunners the toools to win trophies.
With the renewals of season tickets set to begin today, Gazidis said: "It is important to reiterate that for everyone at the Club, qualification for the Champions League is not our ultimate ambition.
Well done Arsenal. Now the serious work begins... by FD
As the dust settles on another Premier League campaign, Arsenal fans can look back on a satisfying final third of the season. While it may have been a little strange watching the celebrations of the Arsenal players at winning fourth place, with memories of the Invincibles still etched in our minds, we shouldn't begrudge them their plaudits.
Being a Real Madrid fan means winning trophies, spending money on big signings, and winning even more trophies. You also get lots of shit when the expensively assembled team doesn't win, but, hey, comes with the territory. What being a Real Madrid fan never meant before was this: selling key players in the prime of their career.

1. Chelsea know how to win these trophies against the run of play. They were inferior to Benfica for huge chunks of this match, but Bayern Munich will testify that counts for little. 2. "Winners of Europe's second most prestigious club competition, we know what we are" doesn't have quite the same ring to it.
