WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A GOONER? by RS

I know all of you would be sad right now and furious on our team’s performance. But Gooners, I want to ask each one of you some very basic questions.

What if we don’t win the title, should we stop supporting our team? And stop getting behind our players? Now, what if our team loses FA Cup, should we stop supporting our team? And stop singing at the Emirates? Even tougher, what if we don’t qualify for CL this season? Should we stop supporting our team?

JustArsenal Fantasy Premier League teams 2013/14

Its a great idea to have a Justarsenal.com Fantasy Premier League, and I wish I had created it before two of our readers who beat me to it!

First off we have one created by the enigmatic “k” and the code is 580900-317858

And Nivaak Shah has created one at Premierleague.com and the code to join is 112542-318760.

Let’s all join both! (Well it gives me more chances of winning lol!)

Personally I am certain that Olivier Giroud will get a hat-trick against Aston Villa next week so he will be leading my attack. Laurent Koscielny MUST be at the heart of my defence, and good old dependable Mikel Arteta is going to run the show.

Brighton boss Poyet wants to manage Arsenal

Arsenal travel to Brighton tomorrow for the fourth round of the FA cup, and Arsene Wenger knows that the game will not be easy. The current manager of the Seagulls, Gus Poyet, has done great things for the club since joining them just over three years ago. He got them promoted from League one in his first full season and was voted manager of the year.

Name the Arsenal score and win a tour of The Emirates

Arsenal are lined up to play Bradford on Tuesday for a place in the semi-finals of the Capital One Cup, and the Gunners are very hot favourites to book their place in the next round.

To celebrate getting one step closer to a date at Wembley, JustArsenal.com have teamed up with Xperience Days to give a family of four a free ticket for a tour of the Home of Football, the Emirates Stadium! This will be a fantastic experience for any up-and-budding young Gooners (and their parents!) and a day out they will never forget…

Giroud ready to repay Arsenal fans with Goals

After making sly little digs about Arsenal throughout the Champions league programme last night, the ITV presenter Adrian Chiles, who is a West Brom fan, said something like `I bet they go and stuff us on Saturday now`. Well if Olivier Giroud has anything to do with it Adrian, we will. The French striker has spoken about how much it meant to him earlier in the season to know that the Arsenal fans were fully behind him.

“I’m a striker, and a striker needs to have a good atmosphere.

Arsenal fans need to stop Battering Ramsey

It seems that some Arsenal fans are determined to think the worst of Aaron Ramsey and would be perfectly happy if he never played for the Gunners again. I agree that he has not rediscovered the form that had people predicting a glittering career for the Welshman before his progress was halted by a horrific double fracture of his right leg, which kept him out for nearly a year. His return has been a slow process, with loans to Nottingham Forest and Cardiff City and a difficult season for Arsenal last year.

Arsenal will NOT lose Mannone to Italy

Arsenal have two of the top three keepers in the squad out of action due to injury, so reports last week that Vito Mannone was looking for a return to Italy were about as welcome as a fart in a spacesuit. The 24-year old Italian keeper has reassured Gooners that he has no intention of leaving the Emirates anytime in the foreseeable future.

“I want to make it clear, because there have been unfounded rumours, that my contract is not ending in 12 months.

“I’ve got a few more years and I’m happy to be at Arsenal right now. I’m looking at the present and the future is not in doubt.

Why is Wenger reluctant to spend Arsenal transfer kitty in January?

If you believe what the papers say then Arsenal are going to hand Arsene Wenger anything from £35 million up to over £50 million to spend on players in the January transfer window. Latest reports suggest that Le Prof is carefully considering whether to spend it or not.

Arsenal fans the world over could provide a quick and easy answer to that question, of course you spend it Arsene. We have heard Wenger saying that he would only buy players that he thought would improve the team and the squad size has to be taken into account, but surely he can think of at least one player.

Giroud vows to be a scoring sensation for Arsenal

You could see what it meant to Olivier Giroud to score his first league goal for Arsenal on Saturday. The chances and blocked shots he had before his goal produced an expression of absolute agony on the face of the French international striker. When he did hit the back of the net, his delight and relief was echoed in the hearts of Gooners everywhere.

Arsenal to offload Bendtner and get Mexes in return

Morning Gooners. So today news has broke about our infamous striker being set to make a move to the Italian shores this week. There have been constant negotiations  over his departure from Arsenal but now it seems the Dane is on his way out.

The striker has made it clear he does not see his future with the club, whilst Arsene Wenger and Arsenal have confirmed he does not figure in their plans. The problem, as we all know, lies in Bendtner’s inflated ego. He obviously thinks he’s one of the best strikers the football world has yet to see and therefore is reluctant to move to just any club. The Dane stated,

Could the exit of Song BENEFIT Arsenal?

Song leaving is a good thing by Taki

I’m sure most of you know already that Song has left the building. Another player who was nourished by Wenger then allowed to leave. The sickening thing is not that Song has left or that Wenger continually praised him as one of the most improved players in the team, but rather that Barcelona purchased him for a ridiculously low price. At a reported 15million pounds it has to one of the buys of the season!!

What are Bendtner’s 3 demands?

“I have three demands and I won’t sign a deal with a club who aren’t prepared to fill those demands.”

What, I wonder, are these three conditions that Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus, United and every top club around the world will be desperately trying to achieve? No games on a Sunday because of hangovers perhaps? A separate, gold plated changing room just for Nick maybe? Does anybody know?
