Wenger has finally returned to the 442 that brought Arsenal Glory – Will it again?

There was a time I used to write many an article about tactics and formations and many of them were about the possibility of Wenger’s Arsenal returning to a 442 system, or a variation of it. If I am honest I gave up for a few years partly because I was continually told that 442, […]

Memories of Ryan ‘Rocky’ Rocastle Arsenal FA Cup Final Mascot 2001 – Exclusive!

I support Arsenal for the ‘Arsenal Way’ – How about you?

This is a question I’ve been asked pretty often in the last three years, ever since my university journey began. “Why do you support Arsenal?” Of course, the question is posed by neutrals, not by Arsenal fans or, indeed, any football fans.
