I really cannot believe what I read from some Arsenal fans on this site sometimes. One bad game and all of a sudden it is, `Wenger out`, `Arsenal are rubbish`, `Ozil is a donkey` and much, much more. Some of the invective leveled at our long serving manager was shocking and made me ashamed to be a Gooner. .......Read the full article here
Arsene Wenger will sign a new contract with the club! by Ash
Yesterdy Arsenal announced that they have secured a deal with sports brand Puma, who will supply the Gunners’ kit for the next five seasons under their sponsorship rights. The deal, which is a record breaker for both sides of the party will see a massive £150 million transfer from Puma to Arsenal over the course of 5 seasons from kit sponsorship alone, making it one of the biggest deals in footballing history. .......Read the full article here
The feeling that Arsenal fans from all round the world are experiencing at this junction contains a sort of duality. On one hand we sense that the quality and situation of the team has been unprecedented in the past decade, and on the other hand we are agonisingly watching (or suffering) the same indecision, confusion, not-knowing-what-you-really-want attitude from the board and Le Prof. .......Read the full article here
He may not have played a single minute for Arsenal this season, but Emmanuel Frimpong has still made the news a few times. The Ghanaian’s previous forays into the news via social media have sometimes been embarrassing or not really helpful to the Gunners cause, but his latest move will surely endear him to Gooners everywhere.
Frimpong posted a picture taunting Manchester United and their under-fire manager David Moyes after they lost, yet again, this time to a struggling Sunderland team. The only thing that could have made this pic funnier was if it had Robin van Persie next to him with a board saying Emirates on it. Get on it Frimmy! .......Read the full article here
Patrick Vieira was one of the most important players signed for Arsenal during the reign of Arsene Wenger. The feisty French midfielder came in right at the start of the Wenger era and it was his penalty that won the 2005 FA cup for the Gunners, which is still the last trophy that Arsenal won.
Hopefully that will be put right this season, but I don’t think it is any coincidence that Arsenal have struggled since Vieira left, because he was a true leader as well as being a great player and a determined competitor. Wenger had an easy decision to make the midfield warrior his new club captain when Tony Adams retired in 2002, and it is no surprise that Vieira is going in to football management. .......Read the full article here
Many people will not agree with this title because of the trophies that Alex Ferguson has won compared to Arsene Wenger. But is it just the trophies won that matter? Fergie is definitely an amazing manager, but after he retired, we find something that Fergie couldn’t achieve during his 26 years in charge of Manchester United.
First, when we think about the Holland national team, what comes to our mind? Yes total football. It was invented by Rinus Michels, a famous Dutch football trainer/coach (who was the coach of both Ajax and the Netherlands national team at the time). Until today, the Dutch still play under his tactical approach but so do many other teams including Man United. .......Read the full article here
The weekend game that put Arsenal clear at the top of the table also marked a special day for Arsene Wenger. It was 17 years to the day since he began his long and successful association with the Gunners, and you would think that it was something that our north London rivals Tottenham would not even want to think about, as Le Prof has never finished below them, but famous spuds fan and former chairman Alan Sugar has proclaimed Wenger as the best in the league.
Arsene Wenger may not have shocked headlines with his latest comments regarding his future at Arsenal, but he has secured the safety of many fans, as well as ending the worries of many others. Unfortunately he may have also caused a few distraught feelings however ultimately I think the majority of fans will be happy to hear that Arsene Wenger plans on staying with Arsenal until his retirement. .......Read the full article here
There has been a little bit of controversy regarding Arsene Wenger’s future in his managerial position at Arsenal, with some fans, players and media officials alike all stating that after going almost 9 years without a trophy, that its finally time for Wenger to step away from North London. .......Read the full article here
Hi Gooners, can you believe it? I know that I am usually much more optimistic than a lot of Arsenal fans, but if things carry on like this I might be seen as normal. Maybe not. Anyway, my point is that Arsenal are in better form than we have been in for years, and there is more belief and optimism among Gooners than we have seen in a long time. .......Read the full article here
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. .......Read the full article here
Hughes reckons this could be Arsene’s last year! by Ash
There has been constant speculation for the last few years that ‘this could be Arsene Wenger’s last year’ at the Arsenal helm, however each year he has proved the rumours wrong and stuck with the Gunners through their times of trouble. Now yesterday’s opposition manager from Stoke City, Mark Hughes, has again jumped on the beef he has with Wenger to suggest this may be the Frenchman’s last year. .......Read the full article here
