National team managers must be held accountable




cech 10 2
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 […]

Walcott 1
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, […]

Why Arsenal should sell Theo Walcott

Giroud 1
It is now mid-March and we are really getting into the business end of the season. This is a crucial time for us and a time we have notoriously been known for falling away. A clinical performance against West Ham supplemented an effective performance against Manchester United. It is clear […]

Giroud 1
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 […]

Why Arsenal are stalling with Giroud as striker


Francis Coquelin 1
  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 […]
