Henry lived and breathed Arsenal – He MUST return some day

There will hardly ever be another Henry! by KM

A magnificent career has come to an end ladies and gentlemen! The one true King of Highbury and the Arsenal has retired. Words will never be enough to describe how much this man has contributed to Arsenals history and one of it’s most successful periods ever.

He scored so many goals, it’s hard to pick out just a few! I love the one where he chipped the ball and fired past Bartes. Ah the good times, when we were dominating United. We had players with character than. We had real leaders and we had players that you could always rely on when you are in trouble.

Hail to the KING of Arsenal – What are your best Henry memories?

The news of the former Arsenal and France international star striker Thierry Henry announcing his retirement from football, or the playing side of the game at least, has quite rightly dominated the football media today and produced plenty of debates about where Henry stands in the pantheon of great players.

Some will argue that he is not even the best Premier League striker ever after Frank Lampard equalled his goals tally of 175 EPL goals the other day and is likely to surpass it soon enough, with Wayne Rooney, Andy Cole and Alan Shearer also having scored more.

Free flowing Arsenal delight Wenger and honour Bergkamp

There are still plenty of people who want to shoot Arsenal down, but Arsene Wenger and his players did not give them much ammunition yesterday. The best that the doubters could muster was that Sunderland were not very good. Maybe not, but we did not give them a chance to be.

Right from the start, Arsenal were crisp and creative in possession and cool, calm and collected in defence. The first three goals were top quality and so was a lot of our play. So it is no surprise to read, in a Sky Sports report, the manager waxing lyrical about his team.

Competition for Arsenal fans to win these great football DVDs

Okay Arsenal fans, here is another competition for you to enter, we are just spoiling you at the minute aren’t we. The prize on offer this time is a DVD celebrating the Sky Sports football show Soccer Saturday, which goes on general release on November 11th, but Just Arsenal has been sent three copies to give away. There is a little competition, but it should not give you clever Gooners much trouble, so pop your answers down in the comments section and three of you will soon have an early Christmas present winging it’s way to you.

Here is the official blurb:

Arteta says this Arsenal are not like Invincibles – Yet

Mikel Arteta is a great Arsenal vice-captain. His cool head is a huge asset both on a and off the pitch. He is also a great role model for the other players in the squad, so they will listen to him when he says things, and amidst the growing excitement and confidence, his voice or reason could be useful in keeping everybody’s feet on the ground.

Can Arsenal make it Heavenly 17th for Wenger?

On September 28th 1996, Arsenal Football Club signed the paperwork making the fairly unheard of Frenchman Arsene Wenger the new manager of the Gunners and the rest, as they say, is history. Wenger is now seemingly as much a part of Arsenal as the white sleeves or the cannon, and after Stan Kroenke’s glowing praise this week, things look set to continue that way for the foreseeable future.

The players have huge respect and admiration for Le Prof, while many of them, such as Aaron Ramsey, owe him a lot for his faith and for improving their careers significantly. Hopefully, they will want to repay him in the best way possible, by marking his 17th anniversary at the club with a win away to Swansea City.

Arsenal – A great history lesson and a promising future!

Who are we?

Since Arsenal Football Club started off as Dial Square in 1886 by workers at the Royal Arsenal in Woolwich, South-East London, we have been one of the most successful football teams in English Football. Dial Square was renamed Woolwich Arsenal in 1893 after becoming a limited company. Over the next 20 years or so we went on to reach new levels of class reaching the First Division in 1904, which would be equivalent to today’s Premier League. I am sure all Arsenal supporters agree that the word class is the best way to describe the Arsenal in one single word.

Arsenal Debate – Pick your favourite Gunner ever?

Your favourite player and why by Big Gun

Dear Gooners, It is really good to see a more unified Arsenal fan base these days. It was getting to a point where either Arsene would have to spend, or the fans were eventually going to take matters into their own hands. I am relieved it was not the latter. Let us just hope that Arsene continues in this vein in the years to come – keeping our best players whilst buying top quality where necessary.

Arsenal Debate – EIGHT reasons why the media hate Wenger!

Why is Arsene so unpopular? by TB

I’ve just read a piece asking why Arsene Wenger doesn’t get the respect he deserves from people within the game and the media. As someone who greatly admires Arsene and what he has done for football, and especially Arsenal, I get very frustrated by the amount of abuse he has to suffer and so I decided to have a go at answering the question – why dont people like Arsene?

Are Arsenal fans now convinced Ramsey is back to his best?

It seems as though Arsenal have the young Aaron Ramsey back who had the world at his feet and was destined for big things as recent performances show.

If you will think back to when he was a young man entering into the Arsenal squad, you will remember how he was being tipped for big things in football. He came from Cardiff as a young man and Arsene Wenger knew that he was a special talent and so did everybody else.

Will Arsenal ever regain the glory days of Henry?

How so much has changed in 14 years! by Ash

The title may seem a bit random to many, and I’m sure a lot of people will be rummaging through their minds and history books to think about what happened on this day, 14 years ago. Well on the 3rd of August 1999, Arsenal officially signed arguably the greatest player to ever play for the club – Thierry Henry.

Arsenal’s new shirt a tribute to the Invincibles?

Everybody seems to be discussing the new Arsenal Away Shirt for next season, and although it is not due to be officially released until tomorrow, here is a sneak preview of the yellow shirt with a collar for change….

Now if i remember correctly, this is extremely similar to the one that the Invincibles wore on that fantastic season ten years ago when the Gunners went the whole season unbeaten.

Here is a signed Tony Adams shirt from that era, see if you can see similarities….
