Six Reasons Why Arsenal Can Dominate English Football Next Season by FD
Recent years have been frustrating for followers of Arsenal. The trophy drought has been bad enough, but we’ve also had to endure the regular exodus of our best players and the apparent reluctance of the powers-that-be to compete with the other top clubs on an equal footing. Yet, at last, there appear to be some solid grounds for optimism. A combination of events elsewhere and the seeds of something stirring at home might just be pointing to a period of Arsenal resurgence ahead. Here are six reasons why the coming 2013/14 season could be one to finally reward the patience of all Gooners. .......Read the full article here

Arsenal’s Greatest ever XI by Dan S.
In celebration of the PFA’S 40 year old birthday, they are asking fans to vote for their favourite player out of the list of former winners. As I casted my vote for Thierry Henry the current results showed it is a straight fight between him and Steven Gerrard to win the pool of winners from 2003-2012.
While I have nothing bad to say about our current England captain I have always felt a certain bias existed towards British player’s in these type of awards (of the 35 winners only 9 have been not British). For me Thierry Henry is the greatest ever foreign import to play the English game and Arsenal’s greatest ever player. .......Read the full article here

Should Arsenal Be Making More Domestic Signings?
This is a guest post from Kaya at The Clock End.
It’s no secret that Arsene Wenger can occasionally get it wrong in the transfer market. His excellent scouting system, accompanied by his supreme knowledge of world football often leads to great buys. Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira & Cesc Fabregas are amongst the various examples.
However, over the years, the mistakes have undoubtedly crept in. Recent acquisitions such as Sebatien Squillaci, Park Chu-Young & Marouane Chamakh all spring to mind. .......Read the full article here

The new Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla is convinced that the Gunners can challenge for the Premiership title this season, and he had a little swipe at Robin Van Persie while he was at it!
He said: “The objective is for us to fight for the title and we will be there doing that right until the end.
“Other players may have decided to change teams because they don’t believe Arsenal can win the title but I believe things are positive here and we can do it.
“Arsenal haven’t won anything for many years but I believe the club always show passion and are a team of winners. .......Read the full article here

Peter Hill-Wood rubs salt on Tottenham’s wound by AM
Arsenal chairman has come out and said that Spurs are unlikely to pose any threat to Arsenal this season. Hill-Wood said – ‘I do not see Spurs posing a problem for us this season.
‘Their new manager may be a great success but they have to find a stadium.
‘That’s going to be very difficult. Finding a site and financing it is a major problem which we know all about.
‘We have a pretty good chance of challenging for the Premiership. I don’t see why we cannot win it this year.’ .......Read the full article here

The Arsenal CEO is quite adamant that Arsenal are aiming to beat all-comers in next season’s race for the Premiership and he has every belief that Arsene Wenger will be making the correct “quality” signings that Arsenal need to reach that goal.
“We want to win major competitions,” Gazidis said. “We want to win the Premier League. We want to compete to win the Champions League. That is our ambition. My message to our fans is that we are doing everything in our power to make sure that Arsenal can challenge for trophies next year. .......Read the full article here

The well-known Arsenal traitor Samir Nasri has been gloating about winning the Premier League with Man City (by the skin of his teeth I might add) and thinks that has givem him proof that he was right to want to leave Arsenal last summer.
He said: “People at Arsenal tried to make out that I came here for the money,”
“I hope they are watching me now, collecting my Premier League winner’s medal. I believe they have not won a trophy for many years now.
“If all that I was interested in was money, the easiest decision would have been to stay at Arsenal, picking up my money every week and walking into the team. .......Read the full article here

It is being reported this morning that Arsenal and the team they massacred yesterday, Tottenham, are set to go head-to-head this summer to try and bring in the top midfielder that has taken the Premiership by storm this season, Stephan Sessegnon.
The classy attacking midfielder only cost Sunderland £6million when he arrived last January from Paris St. Germain and the Black Cats will be expecting to make a significant profit if they are to be persuaded to let him move on and they will not entertain any bids under £10million.
The Mail reports that Arsene Wenger and Harry Redknapp have both been sufficiently impressed to make tentative enquiries as to how much Sunderland value him at with a view to making a solid bid in the summer. .......Read the full article here

All Arsenal fans know that Arsene Wenger is in need of a top class striker to act as cover for Robin Van Persie (or even as a replacement if the Dutchman leaves at the end of the season).
So with that in mind, the Metro reports this morning that Arsenal are interested in signing the American hitman Clint Dempsey, who is a proven Premiership goalscorer with 15 goals for Fulham so far this season after the striker admitted that is keen on moving to a bigger club.
The 28 year-old is (like Van Persie) going to enter the last year of his contract in the summer, and Dempsey hinted that he would be keen to move on if the right offer came along. He said: “You should never get content.” .......Read the full article here

The Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny believes that the narrow defeat by Man City on Sunday showed that the gap between the top four teams is very little indeed, and there are still four teams capable of winning the title.
Although City have a lead at the moment, Szczesny is certain that there will be many more twists and turns before the end of the season. He said: “At the moment, it is too big a gap to Man City but we hope we can make it smaller and then realistically we can talk about challenging for the title.” .......Read the full article here

The Barcelona genius Lionel Messi scored four goals to dump Arsenal out of the Champions League, but he says he was struck by the respect the Arsenal players showed him after the game.
He said: “One of the Arsenal players came up to me afterwards and said it had been an honour to be on the same pitch as me. I thought, ‘My God, that is a great thing to say when you team has just lost.’
“I will always remember that. English clubs are physical and tough, and they play strong for the whole game. But afterwards they shake hands and they are fair.” .......Read the full article here

After yesterday’s comments from Andrei Arshavin saying that third place in the Premiership should be considered a success for this Arsenal team, it seems that Arsene Wenger agrees with the out-spoken little Russan!
Wenger said: “When you are fighting with Manchester City, Tottenham, Liverpool and Aston Villa you cannot say that because you finished third it is a disaster. It is very important to win trophies but if you do not, you do not go from being fantastic to zero.”
He also defended his policy of playing youth players and reserves in the League Cup and the FA Cup, and again said that winning the League Cup could hardly be considered a success. .......Read the full article here
