Arsene Wenger is the longest serving manager in the Barclays Premier League at present. That alone is a great compliment. A manger overseeing over a thousand games in this cut-throat era of football management is very rare. Throw in the three league titles and four FA cup victories and you have a legend.
Now, recent Arsenal fans might not remember the glory days but Arsene Wenger once delivered success. Not the dubious kind of Top Tour ‘success’ of recent years but real trophies. When Wenger was appointed, Tony Adams, who was the Arsenal captain at the time said, “At first, I thought: What does this Frenchman know about football? He wears glasses and looks more like a schoolteacher. He’s not going to be as good as George Graham. Does he even speak English properly? .......Read the full article here
Bergkamp’s return to Arsenal set in stone! by PM
There is no doubt that Dennis Bergkamp is seen by Arsenal supporters as one of our greatest ever heroes along with other legends like Thierry Henry and Tony Adams, and it is great news that the Dutchman is going to be rewarded with a statue of his own at the Emirates this summer. .......Read the full article here
After watching Arsenal’s performances in the last 3 games I’ve really made my mind up that Wenger would make a magnificent scout but I’m not convinced the guy is a world class manager.
There’s so many weaknesses in this side it’s unforgivable, Yes, Wenger was the man at the top when we were the invincibles which was an incredible time to be a gooner. .......Read the full article here
Why Wenger shouldn’t be fired at this current moment by KJ
A lot is being said by both the media and fans regarding Wenger’s future at Arsenal. Many want the Frenchman out of the club as soon as possible. However, this article is to prove that it could be a very short-sighted opinion.
I have to admit, Wenger has really lost it this season. He’s been unable to win against the likes of Norwich, Fulham, Swansea, Aston Villa and even Sunderland. It’s not acceptable at this level. Every top manager has an off day and dropping points can happen. But when it happens against 5 teams that are considerably weaker than us, there is clearly something going wrong. .......Read the full article here
Tony Adams thinks Bould will clash with Wenger by TS
Well now, isn’t Tony Adams the bearer of bad news lately. First he laid into Wenger for selling Robin Van Persie, then he criticized Arsenal for not bring in any new players and now the former Gunner is hinting that Bould and Wenger will clash very soon. It’s irrelevant that I actually agree on the last thing Adams said; it’s just surprising to hear him become so controversial. He’s quite a grouch. .......Read the full article here
The ex-Arsenal star Freddie Ljungberg has just retired from football at 35 years of age, and he has taken the opportunity to celebrate his glory days at Arsenal, where he won two League titles and three FA Cup Winners medals. But he remembers that Arsene Wenger used to buy in top stars every year, and thinks that the Frenchman doesn’t get the same support from the board as he used to in those wonderful times.
‘I am a fan like everyone else and I want us to win trophies,’ Ljungberg said. ‘That hasn’t happened for seven years and maybe Arsene Wenger doesn’t get the funding. .......Read the full article here
BREAKING NEWS: by SV
Just yesterday I posted an article on the on-going saga of RVP’s contract and I speculated as to the state of the negotiations. And, as it would be due to sods law, there was a MASSIVE update today (I’m writing on the 4th of July) as to our captain’s position. .......Read the full article here
Dennis Bergkamp is being linked with a surprise move to South Wales with Swansea City as media speculation rises over the appointment of a new manager at the Liberty Stadium. According to reports in the Daily Mail, Arsenal legend Bergkamp is the bookmakers favourite to succeed Brendan Rodgers, who has moved to Anfield to become the new manager of Liverpool. The Non-Flying Dutchman fits Swansea’s need for a young and hungry manager and it is rumoured that the club are looking to bring him to England, which will mean that Bergkamp will have to quit his current post as assistant manager to Frank de Boer at Ajax. .......Read the full article here
The Arsenal legend Martin Keown believes that Robin Van Persie is going to find it difficult to decide whether he takes one last chance to earn untold riches (and possibly trophies) if he moves away from the Emirates, or to stay at the club that he loves and is highly respected by fans and players alike.
“We need to give Robin time and not suffocate him,” Keown said. “Robin understands and we all understand he is very much a special player for Arsenal. The adulation and respect which he has at Arsenal – Robin has worked a footballing lifetime to get that. .......Read the full article here
The Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has reaffirmed his love for the club when the Gunners honoured the Frenchman with a statue at the Emirates, and is currently keeping fit in the MLS close season by training with Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger has already stated that he will be short of strikers when both Gervinho and Marouane Chamakh are sent off to the African Cup of Nations in January, so surely it makes sense for Arsene to sign Henry as a short-term backup in case Van Persie and Park both get injuries during that time, rather than buy yet another permanent squad member? .......Read the full article here
The celebration of Arsenal’s 125th anniversary recently has led to the erection of three Arsenal legends namely Thierry Henry, Tony Adams and Herbert Chapman. Many questioned Henry’s credentials to have a statue outside the Emirates. This is because Henry left the club in 2007 due to declining form and the desire to wanting to win Europe’s premier club competition, the Uefa Champions League.
Of course, he got what he wanted in the end in 2009 when Barcelona took the Champions League trophy. The question that is in the minds of many of the Arsenal faithful would be ‘If a player did not finish his career at Arsenal and left the club halfway for further glory, does he deserve a statue outside the stadium?’ .......Read the full article here
With statues of Tony Adams, Thierry Henry and Herbert Chapman erected recently in celebration for Arsenal’s 125th anniversary, a lot of attention was turned to Arsenal’s current flying Dutchman. Many questioned Van Persie’s credentials to be an Arsenal great in years to come.
Van Persie has been at the club since 2005. RVP had a rocky start to his Arsenal career was filled with major and minor injuries. His real breakthrough season was in 2009 where his 20 goals and 15 assists made him Arsenal player of the year. Since then, Van Persie’s time at Arsenal has been absolutely glittering. .......Read the full article here
