The Romford Pele himself, Ray Parlour, has been giving his thoughts on Arsenal and the season which is now drawing to a close with the usual fight for fourth place when we all expected and hoped for so much more from the Gunners this time. He stopped short of blaming the boss, even though he also feels that next year will probably be the last one under the managerial reign of Arsene Wenger.
AFC poll….Premier league title 2015/16. by Gooner100
