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...

Upon reading the headline of this article, the response can likely be summed up with one word. No. Jack Wilshere is being lined up to play for England’s under-21 side this summer in the European Championship, with England boss Fabio Capello and his U-21 counterpart Stuart Pearce eager to take full advantage of his talents and Premier League experience at the tournament in Denmark . Most will take the position that Wilshere is in danger of burning out in his breakthrough season, and would be better...

Arsenal has been battling injuries all season long, but the Gunners having been doing well without one of their top two central defenders. But now they’ve lost their rock at the back for the rest of the season, and that could signal Arsenal’s downfall if you’re gambling online. Thomas Vermaelen has been out since August because of an ailing Achilles, and the Belgian defender says he has no idea when he’ll be able to play again. That left Johan Djourou as Arsenal’s best central defender,... 

Why Arsenal can take heart from Barca defeat

Barcelona are the best team in the world. We know this because we are told often enough by those in the know. Some go one further. For me, they are the best team ever Graeme Souness cooed in the post-match fall-out following Arsenals 3-1 defeat at the hands of Barcelona on Tuesday. Before anything else, something needs to be addressed. Barcelona deserve their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, and out-played Arsenal during the second leg. The first game was one of contrast  the...

It has been an odd couple of weeks for Arsenal. In the space of 14 days Arsene Wenger’s men have lurched from quadruple hopefuls to staring down the barrel of another 6 years without a trophy; from favourites to overturn Manchester United in the title race to no hopers and back again. But there has always been one constant lurking on the horizon, and now it is upon them. The Champions League 2nd leg tie against Barcelona has permeated every thought of Wenger since that dramatic night 23 days ago,...
