cech 10

Petr Cech has joined us. It is the quality world-class goalkeeper we have craved since the days of Jens Lehmann. There’s a perception by many football analysts that a goalkeeper’s influence on a team isn’t that great, and as such they don’t cost as much in the transfer market as other players would. This may be true in the sense that a majority of goals that go in any one game are beyond the goalkeeper’s control, but the difference between a good keeper and a great keeper over the course of a season is crucial and can the mean the difference the title and second place. Here’s why Petr Cech is worth 10 points a season to us: [click to continue…]

Why Arsenal should sell Theo Walcott

by Rayed Mamun on May 8, 2015


There is a sure fire way to get a conversation going between fellow Gooners. A player that polarises opinion more than any other is none other than Theo James Walcott. With the best part of a decade at the club behind him, and with yet another contract soon to expire, the debate rages on as to whether he has a future at the club. Here’s why I believe it is time to cash in on our England winger: [click to continue…]

Why Arsenal must sell Wojciech Szczesny this summer

April 24, 2015

It was a cold winter night in December 2010. Both Almunia and Fabianski were injured for the trip to Manchester United and so it was Szczesny who was to make his Premier League debut. The youngster didn’t let the occasion get to him. Despite only having a few League Cup appearances under his belt, he was assured. He made the supporters […]

April 21, 2015

1. Do not change a winning formula I don’t know what New Year’s resolutions our boys had but it has certainly worked. We have hardly put a foot wrong since the start of the year and have more or less played the same team. It was then a bit surprising to see Wenger make several […]

The importance of Francis Coquelin: Burnley 0-1 Arsenal

April 12, 2015

Eight wins in a row in the league. Not bad for a team who was coming seventh in November and were completely written off. As discussed in recent weeks this is no coincidence.

Why Arsenal are stalling with Giroud as striker

March 3, 2015

Like with many things at our football club, there are many topics which polarise opinion. One of the more discussed topics is that of Olivier Giroud. His horror show against Monaco and his less than convincing performance against Everton where even though he scored, he missed two sitters, has made the Giroud debate a hot topic […]

Manchester City 0-2 Arsenal: How Arsenal Coq Blocked City

January 21, 2015

  It has been the source of frustration for Gooners for years now. The fans have been driven to insanity, and indeed, Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

July 13, 2014

As always, the silly season is full of suspense as to who we will sign. It is even worse during a  World Cup year, where some of the best players in the world are away and deals are harder to get done. After the tension and drama of having to wait until the last minute […]
