I have had to put up with a lot since that first game at Highbury made me a red and white Gooner to the core, but this one hurts more than most. Hey, I am not saying that being an Arsenal fan is all bad, because we have had some fantastic times and amazing teams and players and about 99 percent of football clubs in the world would kill for our success and status. But the last decade has been pretty frustrating.
Back in 2003, Arsenal were not to know that almost a decade of trophies and dominance under the managerial reign of Arsene Wenger were coming to an end. We had just finished second to Man United the previous season and were about to go and record the amazing achievement of not losing a single Premier League game all season.
What Arsenal need at this point of time is a big match player. Someone who can single-handedly keep you in a game. Okay why am I saying this at this point of time? To take some pressure off Ozil? Maybe. We keep blaming him for his disappearance in big games right? Okay now lets talk about some superstars who with their amazing skills and hard work have stolen millions of hearts across the globe.
Why people who criticise Özil don’t understand football! by KJ
First of all Arsenal fans, this is not an April Fools day article four months early. And I do not really expect the Barcelona and Argentina striker Lionel Messi to be leaving La Liga to come and play for the Gunners. But over the last year or so there have been an increasing amount of stories from Spain indicating that the Messi is not entirely happy at the Nou Camp.
Reports have emerged claiming that Arsenal are very close to signing the highly rated Real Betis winger Alvaro Vadillo, a player dubbed as the “Next Cristiano Ronaldo” by the Spanish media, who report that the North London side are on the brink of a €20 million move for the teenage prodigy who will almost certainly be on his way in the near future.
Why Özil will only get better by KJ
Over the last two weeks, Özil has struggled to impact on Arsenal games to the level you’d expect from a world class midfielder and yet he’s still managed to get an assist vs Liverpool and his lovely cross was the reason we scored in Dortmund.
After a slow start to his Arsenal career, the France international Olivier Giroud got going and ended up having a decent, if not spectacular first season in the Premier League. The striker showed flashes of brilliance, like his goal against Brighton and some of his clever flicks in link up play, but he was guilty of some poor finishing at times.
