Francis Coquelin


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. Due to our tactical naivety, this was our first away win against a “big 4″ club for almost three and a half years. It was a big win for us, one that’s sure to give us confidence in the fixtures ahead.

What Danny Welbeck can bring to Arsenal

by Rayed Mamun on September 4, 2014


The transfer window, also known as the ‘silly season’ is finally over. We can finally focus on the football. Just like ‘Mesut Özil day’ last year, there was no shortage of tension and drama as we wondered who could possibly be joining the Arsenal family. In the end, our latest family member came from an unlikely source in Danny Welbeck from Manchester United. While he isn’t the Cavani, Falcao or Benzema we were craving, there’s plenty to be positive about with regards to this signing.

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 […]

Let’s talk about Cesc, baby

June 12, 2014

  It is the eve of the World Cup but it is also the silly season, and in the silly season there’s plenty of speculation in the press that gets tongues wagging, none moreso than the recent revelation that our former captain, Cesc Fabregas would be leaving Barcelona. Initially it was believed that we would […]

3 things we learned from the FA CUP Champions! Arsenal 3-2 Hull City

May 21, 2014

1. Mental strength was shown It was absolutely gutting to go 2-0 down at such an early stage. The overall thinking of it all was basically “not this again”, and if I’m honest, we were lucky that this was Hull City and not an elite team (with due respect) because things could have got really […]

3 things we learned from Norwich City 0-2 Arsenal

May 13, 2014

1. We’ve really missed Aaron Ramsey It goes without saying, but we have really missed our Welsh maestro. He started the season with a bang, and reminded us yesterday just what we’ve been missing. Its this sort of consistency that really shows that this wasn’t just a fluke season for him, he’s back and picked […]

April 14, 2014

We are still alive, although given the performances of recent weeks, it felt as though we came back from the dead. It wasn’t vintage Arsenal, but it got the job done and now we are one win away from an elusive trophy after nine long years.

Chelsea 6-0 Arsenal: More questions than answers

March 24, 2014

  The dust has finally settled on what felt like was an atomic bomb planted on our title aspirations, a bomb, placed by ourselves. It is hard to even make out the words on what to write after that, it is just an absolute aberration, and I can only wonder what is going through the […]

3 things we learned from Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 Arsenal

March 18, 2014

1. Rosicky is as reliable as ever It seems like our Little Mozart has been around forever. Signed just before the World Cup in 2006, he has been a constant at the club ever since. It is a shame that injuries kept him out for so long during the past few seasons. Although he has […]

3 things we learned from Bayern Munich 1-1 Arsenal

March 14, 2014

1. It was a decent result on the night, but we will regret the first leg I’m sure before this two legged tie, if someone gave you 1-1 at the Allianz Arena, you’d take it, despite the fact we’d won 2-0 there last year. The result on its own was a very good one given […]
