So Cesc has finally gone. Like Paddy and Thierry, eventually the powers that be at Arsenal were worn down…and yet another Arsenal captain was let go for very much less than the going rate.

Bankrupt Barcelona

I find it extremely difficult to believe that Barca will go on insulting The Arsenal and Fab by making such pathetic offers.'The worlds best club" almost bankrupt?No funds for a decent offer for Fab.Please explain how they will foot their wage bill in the near future!

Not too many players sold to repay debts.Strange,very strange.

Its not all doom and gloom: 5 highlights of 2010/11

1. Arsenal 2-1 Barcelona

Possibly the finest day as a Gooner. Arsenal went behind to a David Villa goal before bouncing back with a sublime van Persie finish and a sweeping team move finished off by Arsharvin. Arsenal could be well and truly proud of beating Barca at their own game. A night very few Gooners will ever forget.

2. Arsenal 3-1 Chelsea

5 Games that Lost us the title

1. Arsenal 2-3 West Brom

Arsenal had an immaculate home record. They didnt lose many games at home. At least until this one. Arsenal forgot to play and as a result found themselves 3-0. This was also down to the pure hilarity of Almunia's goalkeeping. Nasri singlehandedly tried to get the Gunners back into the game but it was too little too late! The big problem with this game was that the previous strength of the Arsenal a home had disappeared.

2. Arsenal 2-3 Tottenham

I was fascinated by this bit of information in Martin Tylers column on Sky Sports. How long have clubs gone without a trophy? 6 years may seem a long time, compared to the 16 year gap of 1953-69 where our beloved team won zero, zip, nada...it's nothing. But how badly off are we really?

Arsenals Trophies will come and maybe even sooner than everyone thinks.

Every season people write us Gunners off from winning the title and trophies. People forget how Consistant Competitive Creative Arsenal have been over the last Decade. I personally believe we have the Perfect Coach & Manager in Arsene Wenger. This genius knows what he is doing. We would not have a Superb world class stadium and world class players we have today if it were not for Wenger. "IN WENGER I TRUST" Honestly who else will run a Debt free club and be as consistant as he has? If you look at the Top 5 Clubs in the world you will see they all in huge debt...

New Signing in the Summer?????????? JanVertonghen!!!!

1 vote

The Ajax center back would be another option for Arsenal if they plan to strengthen their thin defensive line this summer.

Highly recommended by former Ajax defender and current Arsenal player, Thomas Vermaelen, Jan Vertonghen could form a solid partnership with his former teammate.

The 23-year-old is highly rated due to his leadership and passing abilities, as well as having earned much experience for Ajax in the Champions League.
