So, just 3 days after the International break we emerge for yet another big game for Arsenal. This time the trip will take us north to Anfield. To say both teams had a bad international, injury wise, would be fair. Arsene Wenger was angered by the Belgian FA after Thomas Vermaelen, who was injured after the North London Derby last week, was ‘forced’ to play the full 90 minutes against Greece. Arsene has since threatened to report Belgium to FIFA regarding the matter. When asked about the situation...

For Arsenal fans’ the lead up to the North London Derby delivered its first sucker punch when it was announced by Robin Van Persie in Arsenal’s official match day programme that he will not consider extending his contract until the end of the season.

Singing The Praises Of Song

We all know Alex Song the tenacious, tough tackling defensive midfielder. Yesterday, however, he showed us a side to him that we had only glimpsed before. Song, 24, showed us that he’s not just a tough-tackling, knuckle-headed dm. In fact, he showed such incredible craft and vision so precise that he is on level terms with David Silva for most successful through balls. Defensive midfielder? Let’s see. We shall start at the beginning, where did he come from? Well, he was born Alexandre Dimitri...

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...

Afternoon fellow Gooners, I believe this International break was a bit too much of a hype with so called play off’s taking place and few friendlies doing the usual boring injection of football to our souls, it’s like being back from hibernation. I don’t know how some fans in Europe cope with the so called Winter break. Anyway back to business please as usual as we LOVE IT! Few niggly bits doing the rounds as usual, Blatter has made a complete fool out of himself and no one within...

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...
