Are you an Arsenal Fan or a glory-hunter?

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?

Bacary Sagna cheers up Arsenal fans!

Arsenal’s current longest-serving player Bacary Sagna has looked to be set to leave the Emirates this summer as he has not yet agreed to sign a new contract extension. Talks seem to have been going on for the last 18 months and there have been rumours abounding that PSG and (God Forbid!) Man City have been preparing to offer the versatile Frenchman a big-money contract to end his career with them.

But now perhaps the talks are nearing a conclusion, as the right-back’s latest comments would seem to indicate he has no desire to leave Arsenal at all! Sagna said in The Mirror: “I love Arsenal, I love playing for Arsenal, I love my team,”

Wenger puts job on line if Arsenal win no trophies

After eight years without a trophy, it is quite understandable that Arsenal fans have become frustrated and desperate to win another. When you consider this is the same club that just 10 years won the Premier League title, becoming the first, and still the only, side to do it without losing a single match, eight years without even a measly league cup is just not good enough.

Do Arsenal fans underestimate Wenger’s passion?

Wenger’s Passion by Ash

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been criticised a lot in recent years, as it seemed ever more likely that we would not regain glory under his management, however many fans are forgetting what he has done for the club during his 17 year reign, as well as the figure he represents the club as.

Arsenal CAN win title but MUST be consistent says BFG

There is a strange feeling around Arsenal Football Club at the minute, especially among the players. It is an unusual sensation, characterised by being able to sleep soundly at night without waking up in a cold sweat after having a nightmare about being chased by a crazed potato(or spud) down the Seven Sisters road.

This long forgotten feeling is called confidence, and it seems to be contagious. The latest Gunner to be overtaken with this confidence knows a thing or two about big games and pressure, having won 90 caps for the German national team, but strangely he has only got one winners medal, from the German cup final of 2009. Our Big F**king German has been runner up in the Bundesliga, the Uefa cup, the German cup and at Euro 2008, so he knows all about disappointment.

Analysis of what Arsenal fans can really expect this summer

What can Arsenal Fan’s expect from this new Era at the Club? by Josh09

So what does a new era at Arsenal really mean, well Chief Executive Ivan Gazidis came out quickly in an interview shortly after the premier league season was over, answering questions on Arsenal’s financial situation at the current time, and the views and plans to take the club forward and win trophies. During this long waited interview Gazidis also braved the ‘million dollar question’ to answer to the question on Arsenal’s transfer plans, opening the door for big transfer fees and extravagant wages.

Have faith! The Arsenal bus is coming soon!

The Arsenal Bus is coming by JT

Being a Londoner there is nothing more frustrating than public transport, especially buses. You find yourself waiting absolutely ages, and then three come along at once. But you wait at the bus stop because you have faith that eventually one will arrive, and you believe that the TFL couldn’t be so cruel as to discontinue the bus service just as you get there. This feeling is also symptomatic of an Arsenal fan in my opinion. We wait ages, close to eight years for that beloved trophy or those stellar players to walk through the door. Now it appears that a lot of us are starting to cut our losses and are ever nearing that tube station, but I would advise all of you to reconsider.

Arsenal need to win trophies to hang on to Jack Wilshere

Bayern Rebuffed by Ash

Wilshere has announced something that will give all Arsenal fans a sigh of relief after small reports speculated that perhaps Arsenal could lose one of their star players once again this summer. However this time around the player in question, Jack Wilshere was quick to diminish reports stating; “Obviously, I’m flattered. How can you not be? They’re the best team in Europe, but I’m an Arsenal player and I just signed a new deal. So right now all I’m focusing on is the upcoming season.”

Relax! Koscielny is just saying what Arsenal fans think

What Koscielny said was Right! by AH

After Koscienly’s comments yesterday some Arsenal fans seem to be getting on his back. Saying that no player is bigger than the club and he should focus on doing his job as a footballer rather than talking about our business.
Now I agree and disagree with what fans are saying.

A realistic view of Arsenal’s prospects next season…..

ARSENE.. DO WHAT YOU DO BEST… by MR

This article wouldn’t be a pleasing sight for most of the Arsenal fans here. I would have come up with some extremely horrifying comments if this was some one else’s writing. But in all fairness, I pondered over the plight of Arsenal and the Premier league and couldn’t resist sharing them with you. May be a different perspective, or may be something that you have been reading again and again, now that the transfer window (or peep hole for the gunners) is about to be wide open any time now.

Arsenal Debate: We must keep faith in Wenger to get it right this time

Arsene Wenger is the man for Arsenal By CJ

Many people recently have criticized Arsene Wenger and his transfer policies, they say he is too stubborn and won’t sign the players that Arsenal need. I used to agree with this opinion however after watching us finish fourth last weekend, I still think Arsene Wenger is the man for us. Dont get me wrong i certainly dont believe that 4th place is the limit for Arsenal but now we have a springboard that many of our competitors dont have. You look at the landscape of the premier league next year and we are in very good shape. We have something that no other club near us have – long term managerial and financial stability. Chelsea, Man Utd and Man City all are going to have new managers, we have a manager that knows how this works and has guided to Champions League football year after year.

Look at the facts – Arsenal could win trophies with NO new signings!

Arsenal’s 5 month form shows huge potential by DG

I’ve mentioned in a couple of previous articles that our form at the tail end of last season was incredibly impressive. However, it goes back a little further than that. On the 1st December last year, we welcomed high flyers Swansea to the Emirates. Up to this game, we had played 14 games and were sitting in 7th position on 21 points. The game was terrifying to watch, as Swansea and particularly the magnificent Michu picked us apart to win 2-0. The result left us with a record of W 5 D 6 L 4, and we were in 10th place. Some of clubs ahead of us at that time included the footballing behemoths Stoke and West Ham.
