Since Arsene Wenger last guided the Arsenal team to a Premier League title back in 2004, there have been plenty of ups and downs. It has not all been bad by any means, as the Gunners did reach the Champions League final in 2006 and nearly beat Barcelona despite an early red card for our keeper Jens Lehmann.

Arsenal 0 v 2 Bayern Munich Champions league 2013
This was the round of 16 of the champions league. We started the game like a house on fire and we were all over Bayern in the first 15 mins. It was some great stuff from Arsenal. Why it hurts? Ozil misses a penalty then 15 mins later he is still shaking his head asking himself why why why? The great players just carry on playing. Then we got a red card and its game over.
In the last few transfer windows Arsenal fans have clamoured for Wenger to go out and buy a beast of a defensive midfielder, but there didn’t seem to be any suitable ones available (Well, not according to Wenger anyway!)
Arsenal might lose the FA cup final you know by DN
Okay so Arsenal have already beaten our FA cup final opponents Aston Villa twice already this season and the aggregate score between the clubs is 8-0. And with the Gunners being the holders of the FA cup trophy as well, many Arsenal fans seem to think that all we have to do is to turn up and collect the silverware.
The Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud knows all about being criticized in the press (or on forums like JustArsenal!) when he is not scoring goals. It took the Frenchman a couple of years to really get to grip with the Premiership game, and his failure to score in big games, not to mention his hotel-room antics before matches, made him an easy target for journalists and armchair pundits.
