Greetings fellow Gooners! Up to 7th and within touching distance of the Champions League places again…Crisis? What crisis?!?! Of course, we all had our doubts at one point or another. We all had to listen to the media screaming about the end of Arsenal. We all had to listen to other “fans” crying out for the head of Arsene Wenger. We even had to sit through protests at the stadium before games (just what is needed when you have a team desperately low on confidence!). But, in the... 

Hill-Wood Blabs Again & Abject Boredom!

Greetings fellow Gooners! Yes, it’s that time again, isn’t it?! International break misery has set in and the tabloids are left with literally nothing else to do but find a few new ways to beat Arsenal fans over the head! Worst of all, they seem to be able to find hundreds of old ways to do it too! This situation is not helped when Peter Hill-Wood, the Arsenal equivalent of Prince Phillip, decides it is time to open that ludicrous out of control trap of his! Speaking on the subject of... 

Time To Ram Home The Points

Greetings fellow Gooners! Chelsea…Wasn’t it? Really…Lesson in football. Jumpers for goalposts…! But seriously folks, if we ever needed a heavy landing from the heady heights, the 0-0 draw with Marseille certainly provided us with that. A draw we really didn’t need given the number of games we have over the next few weeks, maybe. A return to old habits, for certain. Our inability to convert large chunks of possession and great play into goals is a ghost that has haunted... 

Marseille, Muscles and Muppets!

Greetings fellow Gooners! Marseille at home offers us the opportunity to guarantee our place in the knock-out phase of the Champions League. OK, it depends on the result between Dortmund and Olympiacos too, but with two games left to play in the group, it would be a nice touch to add to a fantastic couple of Arsenal weeks! Having already sneaked a cracking steal the points victory in France two weeks ago, one assumes that our confidence will be high heading into the return home match. Add to that... 

500 And STILL Not Out!

Greetings fellow Gooners! First off, I want to congratulate somebody who achieved an amazing feat for our mighty club today. Not Robin van Persie, Theo Walcott or even John Terry (although a special mention must go to the England captain after he practically gifted us the game today!). No, today’s most amazing feat award goes to none other than the most successful manager in the history of Arsenal Football Club, Arsene Wenger. Today Arsene Wenger passed the incredible milestone of 500 matches... 

The Kids, The Tommy Gunner And A Defence Better Than United’s!

Greetings fellow Gooners! It seems that the squad picked for the Carling Cup 4th round match against Bolton has even less experience than most assumed it would. After seeing a fairly balanced mix of youth and experience turn out for the 3rd round, I think that this change is indicative of the all round changes taking place at the club. A month ago Wenger may have been considering that winning the Carling Cup may have been fast becoming our best and maybe only chance of silverware whereas today sees...
