The tables are turned and Arsenal MUST make United suffer!!

One thing is for sure, Arsenal fans, and it is that Danny Welbeck would not have become a Gunner in the early hours of this morning if Alex Ferguson had still been in charge. To be honest, I was half expecting Man United to do what Mourinho and Chelsea did with Demba Ba last summer.

If they had pulled the plug on the Welbeck transfer at the last minute, not only would they have left us without a decent centre forward until Olivier Giroud was back from his long injury lay-off, there would have been no time for us to look elsewhere. And with the money they have been throwing around all summer, the £16 million or so they got from Arsenal was hardly important.

Arsenal ready to take £10m Man United bid for Vermaelen?

Nothing has been confirmed yet, by either Arsenal or Man United, but it appears as though the transfer of the Gunners captain to our Premier League rivals could be back on. Thomas Vermaelen was pictured this week on holiday with former Arsenal captain and turncoat Robin van Persie, and the two could soon be seeing a lot more of each other.

The Belgium international defender is in the same situation as the Dutchman was when he forced a move to United two years ago, with just a year left remaining on his contract and Arsene Wenger well aware that he is not about to sign a new one. The Frenchman still wants decent value for his players, but the £10 million bid reported by The Mirror could well be enough to convince Arsenal to sell.

Arsenal to lose ANOTHER captain to Man Utd after terms agreed?

It appears that the only things holding up the transfer of the Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen to Manchester United is for the Old Trafford club to meet our valuation of around £11 million and for the defender and his Belgium international team mates to win or get knocked out of the World Cup in Brazil.

Talksport are reporting that the 28-year old centre back has already sorted out his personal terms with United, where he will join the previous Arsenal captain Robin van Persie and line up against his formner team mates.

Arsenal boss shows his teeth to van Persie and Bendtner

Arsene Wenger always seems to have a great relationship with his players at Arsenal. Even the likes of Samir Nasri, Alex Song and others, who have let the boss down by pushing for a move away from the Gunners once Wenger has made them into top class players, still keep in contact and remain friendly with the Frenchman.

But this week, two players who Wenger seems to have forgiven for all sorts of things seem to have got on the wrong side of the Arsenal boss. Nicklas Bendtner’s crazy exploits in Copenhagen, while Arsenal were sweating blood in Munich against Bayern, may have been bad enough, but he was not even supposed to be there.

Could Arsenal really forgive and forget with RvP?

It is fast becoming the Elephant in the room for Arsenal fans. Robin van Persie I mean. According to all the papers, the Dutchman is not happy at his new club Manchester United. He was happy when he picked up a Premier League medal last season, but the Moyes takeover and United’s struggle to obtain European football are the last things he thought would happen.

Detailed infographic report of Arsenal draw with United

Arsenal missed the chance to reclaim top spot last night after a draw at home to Manchester United. Both teams seeming a little hesitant at times, their fear of losing overpowering their desire to win.

The Gunners can be thankful that Van Persie didn’t have his clinical boots on, however Wojciech Szczesny rightfully earned the plaudits for some superb saves to deny the Dutchman.

Giroud was wasteful, while Cazorla attempted to get things going for the Gunners. Koscielny too also came close for the Gunners, but in the end they failed to find the cutting edge to finish off Moyes’ men.

Arsenal team news, preview and prediction for United clash

Arsenal vs Manchester United Preview, Line up and predicted score by KJ

This is easily the biggest test of the season so far for Arsenal. We have been knocked off the top of the league aafter that terribly disappointing thrashing by Liverpool. Our players will be low on morale and now have to face a Man Utd team who have just as many brilliant attacking players as Liverpool. A loss against United and we could be 4 points off the top as well as looking over our shoulders at Liverpool who could easily nick the 3rd spot off us and Tottenham aren’t far behind.

Arsenal fans do NOT want Rvp or Cole back! Maybe Cesc….

The return of the unwanted rivals? by Ash

Although the transfer window has shut down permanently for this season and will not re-open again until a few weeks after Arsenal have potentially had their celebratory Premier League winners’ open bus parade, but the transfer speculation is already in full swing. The news is so surprising that it has to be shared with Arsenal fans because this really would be one massive shock if it happened.

Is Man United game at just the right time for Arsenal?

It is a good time for Arsenal to play Man Utd by Rabiul

It is nice to see Arsenal back on Top of the League where we belong. But make no mistake, there is still a long way to go and the fixture list is very tough for rest of February and March. So Arsenal needs to be on top of their game to continue to stay on top. However, one of the upcoming tough matches is against Man Utd and I seriously believe that this will be a good time for Arsenal to play against them.

Would Arsenal even want van Persie back?

There is a rumour going around, and it is just a rumour for now, that the former Arsenal striker Robin van Persie is seriously cheesed off with his new team Manchester United and could be set for a shock return to the Gunners. I am not going to go into the whys, wherefores and whether the rumour could be true, I am just interested to know what the Arsenal fans think about it.

WTF are Arsenal doing dithering over Sagna contract?

If Arsenal mess this up, someone needs to be sacked. It seems as though the Gunners are on the verge of losing Bacary Sagna at the end of the season after all. The news last week was good, and it seemed to be just a matter of time before the France international was signed up with a new contract, along with Per Mertesacker and Arsene Wenger.

The 5 reasons why Arsenal do NOT want RvP back

RVP’s five cardinal sins By AondoaverK

Arsenal fans now have more than one reason to be happy. Our boys are producing exquisite football on the pitch. We go into tough matches wanting very much to win but also knowing that even a loss will still keep us at the top. But the fact that our former captain Robin Van Persie is unhappy at Manchester United is another reason to be happy.

No one wants to remember those nervous days when his future at the Emirates was so uncertain. Will he go…… will he stay…… Finally he left but it was pretty clear to many that he had made up his mind long before.
