There could be a number of long serving Arsenal players leaving the club this summer, as there have been almost every summer in recent years. This time could be different, though, as the likes of Bacary Sagna, Lukasz Fabianski and Thomas Veremaelen could have a nice shiny FA cup winners medal to show for their years of service to the Gunners.
It will be strange then to think that these players will have won exactly the same amount of trophies as the player who has made just one start and three substitute appearances in his Arsenal career, but that is the situation that Kim Kallstrom might find himself in after the Wembley final om Saturday. .......Read the full article here
It was not long ago that Freddie Ljungberg was suggesting that Arsenal should not really have been celebrating so hard after beating Newcastle United on the final day of the season. He was not the only person to suggest that fourth place is no reason to celebrate, for a team with the history of Arsenal at least.
He is right, of course, but he also seems to have realised that in the context of the last eight years and the way the season had gone until the last 10 games, it was understandable. The Swede also feels that Arsenal are over the hard times and have a great platform on which to mount a serious title challenge next season. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal fans need to support our new signings – even if they’re not necessarily the ones we want. by DG

This time last week Arsenal would have been a few hours away from kicking off against Newcastle United in the pivotal last game of the season, which if we won would secure us 4th place in the Premier League no matter the result of the Tottenham vs Sunderland match. Come the end of 90 minutes, and a very tense 90 minutes may I add, Arsenal were the ones celebrating as we oversaw Spurs and left them in our shadow for yet another year. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal’s Ivorian striker and winger Gervinho has had a blistering start to this season after flattering to deceive since his arrival from Lille. Arsene Wenger has used him in more of a striking role and that could be the reason for his upturn in form. Former Arsenal star Freddie Ljungberg has spoken about the 25-year old and Arsenal’s start to the season after his decision to retire from playing football.
The Swedish international is not surprised at Gervinho’s impact, as he saw him play for Ligue 1 in France and was always impressed by his skills. He also told Talksport that he is looking forward to the rest of the season after Arsenal’s great start to the season, except against Stoke. .......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

In between those nine years Freddie Ljunburg won two English premier league, three FA cups, three community shield, one player of the season award (2001-02) and countless diagonal runs from the midfield into the box. .......Read the full article here
I know it’s Christmas so I thought this was a bit of festive cheer, because he really can’t be serious! Freddie Ljungberg has joined Celtic today and the South Korean defender Cha Du-Ri admitted he was really looking forward to comparing underpants with Freddie!
Cha said: “Freddie Ljungberg is a very famous player and I like his underwear.
“Seriously, he’s a good player and I think he can help us. It’s great.”
Even though the transfer window is now closed, the media is still urging Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger to strengthen the team. It is being reported everywhere that Wenger is “keeping tabs” on Toulouse’s Moussa Sissoko.
Reports in the Corriere dello Sport claim the Gunners are interested in Toulouse midfielder Sissoko, but the Italian newspaper also suggests Manchester United are interested.
Earlier this summer, it was reported that Tottenham Hotspur had an offer of £14million rejected for the 20-year-old, which gives an indication as to how much his employers rate him (From Fansfc). .......Read the full article here
