The tide is turning in Arsenal’s favour…..

Here’s how Arsenal can win the Premier League next season by FD

“There is a tide in the affairs of men” said Shakespeare. And who are we to argue? What he was referring to was that rare confluence of circumstances all coming together at the same time which needs to be taken advantage of – or be lost forever. Yes, he was probably the original drama queen, but he had a point. In football, as in life, you need to take your chances when they come.

Arsenal Debate – Could we start the season as title favourites?

Future Seems Bright For The Gunners by SS

As the Premier League season came to an abrupt end on May 19th, there were celebrations going in the Arsenal dressing room at St. James Park. No, they had not won the title. They were actually celebrating their 4th place (which according to Mr Wenger is a trophy). They had just beaten Newcastle to claim the last Champions League spot. And they had beaten their bitter rivals Tottenham to it.

Now is the time to back Arsenal to win the League next season!

Well what a crazy week for English football! It seems that all THREE of Arsenal’s top rivals for the League are changing their managers this summer. We all know about Ferguson, and today it is on Sky Sports that Man City are in talks with Manuel Pelligrini to take over at the Etihad next season.

Then of course we all know that Jose Mourinho is going to Chelsea – and so all three of them are going to be going through a period of upheaval as the new managers settle in.

Arrogant Wenger can’t give Arsenal any further success

GUNNER for life…….. by Popeye786Sailor

This season was an eye opener to anyone connected to Arsenal FC. When a player like Robin van Persie makes a public statement that the club lacks ambition before eventually leaving the club at the peak of his career to join our rival Red Devils, it does raise many eyebrows. What really must have happened behind closed doors of the mighty Emirates? Why would a player, whose career was moulded by the father figure manager who backed him through his hard times, would leave by making noises?

So how many Arsenal fans would swap Wenger for Mourinho?

I guess everyone has seen the yearly rumours linking Arsene Wenger with a move to Real Madrid, after it has been revealed that Jose Mourinho is not getting on very well with his players, and he was even (like Wenger) abused by the Real Madrid fans despite his team being five points clear of Barcelona in La Liga.

Mourinho said: “I’m not bothered by the whistles at me,’ he said. ‘It’s not a problem. It’s the first time it’s ever happened to me. There’s a first time for practically everything.
