How they have loved to poke fun and laugh at Arsenal in recent years as we failed to win any major piece of silverware from the 2005 FA cup win over Manchester United on penalties until that dramatic fightback from 2-0 down to beat Hull City at Wembley last May.
It’s all gone quiet over there! All the Arsenal haters and fierce critics of Mesut Ozil have gone into their shells a bit since the start of this calendar year. As the Gunners put our early season struggles to one side and started to build momentum, the likes of Paul Scholes, Michael Owen and Adrian Durham have become more and more quiet and will soon have to find someone else to pick on if we carry on at this rate.
