Nicklas Bendtner will stay and play for Arsenal next season on the one hand due to the fact that the Gooners failed to find another striker. One the other hand due to the fact that the Dane has huge wage demands and therefore did not manage a transfer away. “The chance for him to leave now is very small,” Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said. “If he comes back well and gets fit, I will use him.” In fact Bendtner currently earns £52 000 a week. None of the clubs that were interested in his services...

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...

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... 

Hill-Wood Blabs Again & Abject Boredom!

Greetings fellow Gooners! Yes, it’s that time again, isn’t it?! International break misery has set in and the tabloids are left with literally nothing else to do but find a few new ways to beat Arsenal fans over the head! Worst of all, they seem to be able to find hundreds of old ways to do it too! This situation is not helped when Peter Hill-Wood, the Arsenal equivalent of Prince Phillip, decides it is time to open that ludicrous out of control trap of his! Speaking on the subject of... 

From 17th Best To 17th Best!

Greetings fellow Gooners! I know, you expected something directly after the game against Bolton on Saturday and your hearts were broken when I chose not to write a single word on the topic until now! The main reason for this is that for the last match report I broke the “golden rule of sports blogging” and wrote whilst I was angry which led me to decide that it was probably just a much a sin to write when I was happy too! In truth, the things I would have splurged onto the page on Saturday...
