Just few hours from now could really define our season in a nutshell. It hasn’t been a great week for us has it now? It hasn’t been a great summer full stop. Loosing at the weekend has not helped one bit to be honest with you. We saw the last of Nasri then, today he is checking house prices somewhere up north but more on that later. Tonight we take on Udinese in MASSIVE second leg of our Champions League qualifier to the group stages. We hold a lead which is a slender lead but still... 

Farewell Francesc Fabregas!

alt text

It might sound odd, but a lot of Arsenal fans are probably glad to see the back of Cesc Fabregas. The transfer story surrounding him seems to have rumbled on for all eternity and some might even argue it has hampered Arsenal’s progress. That’s not to say that Fabregas has not given his all for the club when playing – but with a dream move to Barcelona in the back of his mind, you’d have to say his heart cannot have been fully in it. There is no doubt that Fabregas is a genuinely world class... 

Cesc will remain, Arsenal will go on!

Even though he’s not gone yet I beleive this guy needs some praise for all he has done for our club, some may think it’s wrong some may say he deserves it and some may suggest he aint worth it. We all know this is one of the worst transfers sagas I have seen, however  I will not be bitter that he’s going I believe he did enough for us since being a 16 year old lad, no trophies in his cabinet but I was always proud of him. Fare well Cesc just for you old pal let the grass be greener... 

Poor defence holding Arsenal back?

It might just be this writer’s nostalgia, and of course the game has changed over the last decade or so. But the repeatedly bad performances of a leaky defence grates someone who can remember that famous, air-tight well-regimented defence that would squeeze the life out of opposition attacks. Is it any co-incidence that since Tony Adams (if Parlour was the Romford Pele, then surely Adams was the Romford Bobby Moore) left the club, they have only won one title, compared to the four that he won during...

I have missed my match review completely, so I’m going to keep this short and sweet as I want to embark on other subjects as we all know the transfer windows was firmly shut at 18:00 UK time yesterday. The Blackburn game on Saturday was a very tough away fixture especially when we play any of Fat Sam’s teams we always seem to struggle and loose vital points. The lads did me proud in every way, yes we seemed very nervous in the first half, we knew what happened there last season so perhaps... 

Arsene confirms Squillaci is a Gooner!

I think everyone thought Sebastien Squillaci was going to be announced as Arsenal player last Monday, that did’t happen as we all know.Tuesday went by and we still didn’t know if he signed on the dotted line or not. Yesterday I have heard that he went back to Spain, apparently to sort out few things as he flew straight back to London. It’s now 17:15 and there is still no confirmation on Arsenal.com. Now I would have thought it would be definitely announced today after Arsene’s...
