The worst Arsenal transfers of the 21st century

Wenger: Good Vs Evil: 22 years in the making

So it’s finally over and apparently Arsene’s replacement will be announced next week. There’s been highs and lows, ups and downs, good times and bad, success and disaster, beauty and the beast, sublime and the ridiculous.

The Scorpion King

Sting in the Tail as Arsenal Bids Adieu To Scorpion King Giroud

When Robin van Persie left Arsenal in 2012, I made a promise to never have a favourite Arsenal player again. The wounds from Henry’s departure still hadn’t fully healed, despite the divorce happening five years prior. I was also trying to black Cesc Fabregas out of my mind.

The new Gervinho?

Alexis the new Gervinho?

invinciblogI was eleven-and-a-half. My family had just emigrated from Rhodesia to South Africa.

Problem was: I didn’t like the colour red – so when FA Cup Final day came around in […]

Wenger’s all time worst buys for The Arsenal – The Unlucky 13!!

  After the ‘Best Arsene Wenger Arsenal Signings’ post, I just had to do a ‘worst signings’ post. And again, entirely subjective; these are my own opinions and factor in the transfer fee paid, their impact (or lack of) on the team and the general ‘meh’ that I felt when they were announced.

Doesn’t do tactics? Arsene Wenger is one of the best, and here’s why‏

Mr. T’s Nuts About three blogs ago I wrote a piece on Arsene Wenger and the alchemy of coaching players with varying skill levels until he has maximised their potential, before adding a few top class players where needed to complete the squad. It’s the path he has chosen for Arsenal during the austerity years; […]

A striker, a winger, a creative midfielder and a goalkeeper to complete Arsenal jigsaw

Considered Cohen With the recent signing of Yaya Sanogo, and the discussion about Gonzalo Higuain and Wayne Rooney, it’s pretty easy to see where Arsene Wenger views needed improvements- in the striker/central forward role. It’s positive to see that Arsenal are strengthening their forward line- a position which the Gunners struggled with at different stages […]
