Can you name all of Arsenal’s Spanish Stars since Reyes became an Invincible?

Given the nationality of our head coach, Mr.Emery, I wanted to pick out some of the most noted Spanish players in our club’s history. Denis Suarez, whilst only a loan signing, also adds to the Spanish vibe we have currently. So who else from Spain has either helped us or even hindered us, over the […]

Who is Arsene Wenger Dad?

Who is Arsene Wenger Dad? Well my son there is no easy answer………..

If you want a straight answer, he was the man who made me believe that football could be complete. Let me explain: pundits, fans and some managers like to separate nice football from winning football, imposing the results-win-it-all philosophy at the top of the football pyramid. Often used as an argument to defend their own […]

Wojciech Szczesny

Wojciech Szczesny was set to become our Gianluigi Buffon – but it doesn’t look like he will anymore

Wojciech Szczesny has completed his move to AS Roma, the guy himself announced the deal via his Instagram account. Although all reports do not agree about the formula of the deal, John Cross of the Mirror believes that the initial loan move could be made permanent for as little as £ 5m. If confirmed, that means […]

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. Or they […]

Time to CECH out the ‘Battle to be Arsenal’s Number 1

It’s fair to say the goalkeeping situation is unstable right now. Just as it seemed Wojciech Szczesny established himself as a proper number 1 during the run-in in 2012-2013 season (even Ospina admitted he was initially brought in as back-up,) an atrocious start of 2014-2015 campaign, discipline issues and a particularly feeble performance from the […]

Time for Wenger to toughen up.

Time for Wenger to finally be firm with his players – Drop Szczeny and play Opsina Surely it is time for Arsene Wenger became firm with his players? In today’s football world, with access to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram along with teenage players already having wages of thousands and thousands of pounds, it isn’t always […]

Arsene Wenger: It’s about time you solved Arsenal’s greatest problem since day one of your reign

Well, this is nice and comfy, I could get used to this! Gunners Town embossed leather sofas, those green shaded reading lamps you always see in films firmly attached to a glorious mahogany desk, a choice of several fine pipe tobaccos and enough coat-hanging space for several crushed velvet smoking jackets. Wonderful stuff, so thanks […]

Arsenal’s first major summer signing should be Jens Lehmann

Doppelpass Another week gone by and let’s be honest there is nothing new to report. The transfer window which started with lot’s “close deals” has gone rumour based as every year. Take Gonzalo Higuain, Marouane Fellaini or any other player. It’s a difficult situation as we have just started pre season. But on the other […]
