Adebayor misses out on third place

West Brom 2-3 Arsenal | Fulop drags Arsenal over the line

Like a weary marathon runner on his last legs, we haven’t been able to muster the effort to cross the finishing line even though it’s been in sight for a while now. Suddenly, with Spurs making a sprint finish and looking
Steve Morison equalises against Arsenal

Arsenal 3-3 Norwich | Arrogant, complacent and naive

After yesterday’s frustrating draw, Norwich striker Steve Morison said: “I think Arsenal thought we were going to be a pushover today.” You’re absolutely right Steve. Arsenal often do that against so-called ‘weaker’ teams because they are a bunch of incredibly arrogant
Don't get fouled by Stoke players or this lot will be booing you

Stoke 1-1 Arsenal | Idiotic Stoke fans steal the show

Most of the headlines this evening are to do with the behaviour of the Stoke fans rather than the match itself. That’s down to two reasons — firstly, the game wasn’t really much to write home about as a lively opening
van Persie goes close against Chelsea

Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea | No passion and no ideas

Arsenal 1-0 Man City | Excellent win heaps pressure on Spurs & Chelsea

Mikel Arteta was the match winner on a day when Arsenal took a massive step towards automatic Champions League qualification and practically handed the title to Sir Alex. It’s only fair we helped United as they did us a favour an
Arsene Wenger

QPR 2-1 Arsenal | Ramsey instead of the Ox, Wenger? Really?

Our recent form had been so good that one or two ridiculous articles surfaced over the last week talking up our title chances for next season. Well, as if to remind even the most blind Arsenal fan that there is still
Walcott scores against Villa

Arsenal 3-0 Aston Villa | Revitalised Gunners too good for Villa

Arsenal produced another confident, assured performance to easily claim a routine win and consolidate third place. The Chelsea v Spurs game was a no-lose situation for us. The only way to turn that draw into a bad result was to take

Everton 0-1 Arsenal | Mind what gap Spurs fans?

A month ago I thought the next time we’d be above Spurs would be at 3pm on the opening day of next season courtesy of ‘A’ coming before ‘T’. That we’ve reeled them in within a matter of weeks is nothing
