Yes it’s a done deal fellow Gooners, Mesut Özil has joined Arsenal on a 5 year deal! It is understood the deal cost around 42.4 million pounds. Arsene Wenger was delighted to say: “We are extremely pleased to have signed Mesut Ozil. He is a great player, with proven quality at both club and international level. We have watched and admired him for some time as he has all the attributes I look for in an Arsenal player. “I have said throughout the summer that we have been working hard to...

We all saw the game last night including my disappointing comments on another blog, I think I have for once lost the plot but was I the only one? I don’t want to talk about the game or the previous one for that matter it was let’s honestly say total shambles! It pains me to say we are not good enough any more for the so called 4th spot trophy if you ever believed it was just that. Yesterday’s performance proved this to me as I have believed the team can lift themselves as they...

Having arrived at the desired location around 5:05pm before the game with my son I have already spotted Steve T with his kids in Arsenal gear making their way towards the Holiday Inn where Holic and the others have agreed to meet. I thought one thing, it was a real shame I couldn’t sit this one out with Arsenal fans but hey I never imagined what was about to happen and show us exactly why we really love this game and Arsenal for that matter and most of all why you should NEVER under no circumstances...

So as the heading goes we are off North tomorrow morning, this is not a special treatment from the club either, the lads are going there to earn three points end off! So Sahin deal did not come off in the end, to me it wasn’t a final transfer deal to be honest. When Jack W comes back to full fitness and takes to field his presence becomes rather obsolete so we have lost and gained at the same time without spending big bucks! Frankly I have never heard of him until now which is strange because...

Arsenal vice-captain Mikel Arteta has high hopes for the Gunners this season and believes they are looking in good shape to have a successful campaign. The Spaniard was made vice-captain by Arsene Wenger behind Thomas Vermaelen, who is the new skipper at the Emirates Stadium. It looks as though Arsenal could still do some business in the transfer window, with a loan move for Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin looking likely. Also, the highly-rated Yann M’Vila, who has been a long-term target for... 

Thoughts on Van Persie

So Robin Van Persie has finally joined Manchester United after a summer of speculation. The deal is worth around £24 million for the Gunners skipper and in the end, maybe it is a good bit of business from Arsene Wenger.  Although everyone assessing football bets  will agree that last season, the Dutchman was an instrumental figure in Arsenal’s campaign and they would have been nowhere without him – it was the only time he had made more than 30 appearances in a season in the Premier League.  Wenger...
