The new Arsenal of youngsters, who are they?

An introduction to Arsenal’s schoolboys this season by @AFCAcademy This season Arsenal fans would have seen our academy bring in five new talents to Colney, and lose 14. To start, 16-year-old attacking-midfielder Daniel Crowley, capped at U16 level for England and Ireland, and now England’s U17 side. Spanish right back Julio Pleguezuelo, yet to be capped internationally. Late into the ...

The Steve Bould effect

We are now just past the halfway mark in our 2nd season with Steve Bould as assistant manager and based on our vastly improved defensive record during that time it’s clear that he has been massively influential. Before I go into detail on Steve Boulds effect, massive credit must be given to Wenger who made two bold decisions to drop Vermaelen & Szczesny towards the ...

Winter Transfer Window

With the transfer window upon us, many Arsenal fans are hoping, dreaming, praying of a multi-million pound signing particularly in the central striker position. But will Arsene delve deep into his pocket or will Arsenal fans be left frustrated with a lack of signings, as they are that have become accustomed during the Wenger reign?

Or in Arsenal’s case: we’ll continue to look down the table. Let’s be ...

The Arsenal Spine That Will End the Trophy Drought

That’s right, I said it.  I strongly believe this will be the year ending Arsenal’s trophy drought.  The entire team’s quality, desire, and unity have risen from previous years.  To me, the main culprits behind our fantastic success this year has been from the spine of the team.  In fact, I believe we have the four main character(istic)s to be ...

Stunning away form could win Arsenal title

Cardiff have become the latest in a long line of high profile teams to have their fortress penetrated at the hands of Arsenal. Dortmund, Swansea, Marseille have all been beaten by Arsenal on their own patch since the  form changing game at the Allianz arena last year. However why have Arsenal been so good away from home since that awe ...

The Misfits: What next for Coquelin, Campbell, Frimpong and the rest?

The summer transfer window was ground breaking for Arsenal more than we realise. We finally paid big money for a world class player which has completely transformed the club, but almost as importantly we cleared a large portion of the worryingly high amount of deadwood players stealing their wages in our reserves. Chamakh, Arshavin (released), Gervinho, Denilson (released) , Santos, Squillaci (released) ...
