Arsenal shareholder Alisher Usmanov has publicly declared that he is not in talks to sell his 30.4% stake in the club to hugely unpopular majority shareholder Stan Kroenke, reassuring supporters that it also remains his intention to buy more Gunners shares and take control. It was reported this week that Kroenke, who also owns multiple sports franchises in his native United States – including the Los Angeles Rams of the NFL, had offered Usmanov a total of £525m in an attempt to buy him out...

Despite the disappointing week we’ve had we have another game to look forward to as we travel to Everton for the early kick off at 12:45 tomorrow afternoon, I know the lads have not had much rest and in an ideal world this game should be played on Sunday instaed as Everton players had a whole week to recover from their FA Cup triumph against Chelsea, whilst we played Barcelona mid week which without a doubt was a very demanding game physically. Still, there is no point complaining and moaning...

So we here it goes, we are officially out of two cup competitions within a week, we all knew too well it would be Mission Impossible to beat Barcelona at Camp Nou. We did give it our best shot and if our players were ruthless in front of goal it could have been a different story, however it wasn’t the case as it hasn’t been for few months now.

At Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon the Gunners will continue the defense of their title by seeking a return to Wembley for the third successive season! Midweek they played their fifth round replay against Hull City and they thrashed the Championship outfit with a 4-0 score!

When non-Arsenal fans listen to passionate Gunners proclaiming that ‘this could be the season’ the almost irresistible temptation is to smirk patronisingly whilst saying ‘What, again?’ Even die-hard ‘Arsene knows’ types must have the honesty to admit that the situation we find ourselves in currently, a situation in which Arsenal’s title hopes are being positively talked up by pundits and other experts beyond the usual suspects (take a bow Ian Wright), is one which we’ve witnessed...

Not too sure how to start this one, I know this is an Arsenal blog and I haven’t done the blogging thing for a long long time. I suppose life is too busy we all have too many duties during our days to keep personal stuff afloat and we are truly committed to our cause. Never mind the football this one is not about football anymore as far as I’m concerned this one is about my cousin who tragically lost his life once he stepped off the plane on 8th of August and came back to his so called...
