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...

Greetings fellow Gooners! In about an hour’s time we will be watching the return to the Emirates of Stoke City, possibly the most schizophrenic club in Europe right now! With a run of results ranging from a 1-0 home win over Liverpool, a 1-1 draw with Manchester United to a 2-0 loss to Swansea and topping their Europa League group, this really is a team with no real consistency to their results. Hell, they even managed to rid the Carling Cup of the Spuds! So who or what exactly are Stoke these...

Sometimes you just have to come out and say something. Today Robin Van Persie did just that… TWICE! “I want to say something about my commitment to Arsenal because there have been many stories in the media lately. “I am committed to Arsenal, and that’s how it is, despite people [in the media] making up stories. For example, they said I was selling my house, but that’s nothing recent, I moved house last year. “I see stories which make me laugh, but I can see how frustrating...

Greetings fellow Gooners! Well, that was a mind-numbingly, toe-curlingly putrid two weeks, wasn’t it?! Not a game worth seeing in sight, (the obvious exception being Oxlade-Chamberlain’s hat-trick for the Ingerlund U21’s of course!) and nothing, literally NOTHING new to read, hear, see or care about regarding our great club. And when I say nothing new, I mean NOTHING just as much as I mean NEW! The media has spent the past two weeks telling us the following: – We made a bid... 

Would The Real Arsenal F.C. Please Stand Up?

Greetings fellow Gooners! Ok, we can whine about handball, and with good reason. We can whine about Van de Vaart (or Van de Fart as Gary Neville hilariously pronounced his name!) even being allowed to stay on the pitch after two obvious yellow card offences, and with good reason. We could even whine about bad luck and even more about the freak goals that the Spuds continue to score against us. In fact, we could just whine because we damned well want to. But in truth, we didn’t get anything... 

Spuds, Away, Sunday? Yes Please!

Greetings fellow Gooners! Well, nobody can claim that we haven’t had a tough start to the season. Losing to Liverpool, losing 8-2 to Manchester United, losing 4-3 to Blackburn, losing Cesc, Na$ri and Clichy, Champions League qualifiers against Udinese, 3 red cards, losing Jack Wilshere for most of the season, losing Thomas Vermaelen for something like 10 games in total (more on that developing saga later!) and now, just when we appear to be going in the right direction, the “anything...
