WILL THE REAL ARSENAL PLEASE STAND UP? by OO
The chorus ringing of ‘who are ya?’ ringing around a stadium is the stupidest football chant man could conceive but for the Arsenal this question becomes profound. In my short life I have known Arsenal as ‘the defensive team’, ‘the title winning team’, the greatest premier league team’, the 2nd best footballing team in the world, the selling team but… who are Arsenal Club today? Who are we? Well, its easier to answer who we are not. .......Read the full article here

Why can’t we just accept the truth? by Vinay
Has the disappointment settled in? Has the anger subsided? Has the ranting ended or are we still keeping some things in store waiting for upcoming results? Yes its pretty obvious to make out an Arsenal fan in a crowd, see anyone sulking and you have your man alright. How things have changed in the span of a few days.
I will be the first to admit i am hopping mad. It is not because we didn’t buy the so called “top top player” but more so because of the obvious frailties which weren’t covered. We cannot go to a season with just one actual striker, because apart from Giroud, Lukas is more a second striker (even considering his exploits at Cologne) and Chamakh – well forget him please as of now. .......Read the full article here

Arsenal and Tottenham – Big club mentality part 2 by KJ
Arsenal have had one of the worst starts by their standards in footballing history by only achieving 7 points from the opening 7 games. It was dark times for Wenger. Many of the ficklest fans wanted Wenger out. There was no meaningful redemption for the Frenchman. All hope had seemed lost.
However, this is the same manager that had been voted the best of his era in the last 10 years. The same man who managed to go through a Premier league season undefeated, a feat that won’t be reproduced in our lifetimes, maybe never. He is the most successful manager that Arsenal has ever had. The board fortunately weren’t reactionary and fully backed one of the world’s greatest. .......Read the full article here

Having been linked with a move away from Porto for weeks, giant Brazilian striker Hulk has made such a move more likely after declaring his partiality for a transfer into a big league.
“The Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga and Serie A are where people really want to play, where the stadiums are always full… If I had to leave for one of those leagues, I would leave happily”.
The player’s impressive scoring record – 36 goals in 56 games last season – does indeed suggest that he could be cut-out for a high calibre move but whether he would want to risk his seemingly flourishing career at the Emirates is debateable. Despite boasting stronger squads – at least in terms of confidence and consistency – Inter Milan, Chelsea or Real Madrid would at least guarantee him European football for the foreseeable future. .......Read the full article here

Arsene Wenger previously said that he wants all the problems associated with Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas to be finished “before the season starts” but with the Gunners preparing to face Newcastle that time is approaching rapidly.
Last night in his pre-match conference he was (as always) asked about the negotiations for the star duo and he replied: “I expect nobody to leave the club,”
“At the moment there is no news. What we want today is to focus on the players who can help. “The transfer market is not as easy as people think it is. I’m not disappointed by Cesc’s attitude or Samir Nasri’s attitude.” .......Read the full article here
