By the end of first half last night I was livid, worse if I could I would be screaming at the top of my lungs calling Mason all sort of names which I did in my head anyway. It had to be quiet my little Gooner was already asleep upstairs. Not only his fellow colleague linesman made the wrong call when Saha was miles offside and gave the goal he also failed to notice how Everton stopped us from playing at every opportunity. Now there are some mixed conclusions that Saha’s goal was either Onside and...

If there is one man who has symbolised Arsenal over the past five years, it is Cesc Fabregas. The Spaniard has enjoyed his fair share of highs as well as lows and will now look forward to ending the Gunner’s trophy-less run that extends back to 2005’s FA Cup win. Prior to the Carling Cup semi-final first leg against Ipswich the Spaniard warned against complacency and said that Ipswich would be a sterner test that most imagined. How right he was proved, not only in the first leg where a Tamas...

Arsene Wenger is going to have to delve into the transfer market for a new defender if he wants to challenge Manchester United for the Premier League title. The Arsenal manager recently confirmed he would be looking for some cover at centre-half if it seems Thomas Vermaelen would not return from an achilles problem in the near future. The news has been bad for Wenger, as the Belgian defender has been ruled out for a further six weeks as he needs an operation to cure the injury that has seen him unable...

As most of you already know we have been drawn against Barcelona again in the last 16 of the Champions League, this certainly comes to me as no surprise to be honest with you. Deep down for some strange reason I knew we were going to get our Catalan friends and what better opportunity do we need to make amends on that disappointing defeat last season? This is what football is all about, it will be a great and exciting game and I reckon we have a much better chance of getting required result we all...

On Monday, the Arsenal lost a close one to Manchester United 1-0. For some reason, we can’t seem to stop Park Ji-Sung from scoring on us. His header goal was the only point and this was the third game in a row against us that he scored. However, after the game Arsene Wenger was complaining about the pitch being bad and that being the reason the Arsenal won. He said, “On a very bad pitch, the technical quality of the game suffered and that’s why you have seen unusual technical mistakes....
