A letter to Arsenal FC

(Grant Temple posted to Arsenal Football Club on FB)   I am a 21 year old American that is fan of Arsenal and have played soccer (football) my entire life, I have followed the club tirelessly for the past ten years of my life.   Admittedly, I do not know all the ins and outs of the club as it is not covered in the media from where I am from. All I know is from the games I watch and the intense research that I do to follow and support the club.   My dream is to make it […]


Nowhere to hide this time, Arsene

  By Landry Subira   I write to you from my living room couch with the 2-2 against Napoli playing in the background.  There was a lot of good in the match mixed in with the bad. The good included seeing a fully fit Jack Wilshere and an excellent Koscielny.  The rest was seen for what it was, a team that is a way away from match fit. Let’s not kid ourselves in the least; this is the strongest we’ve been entering a season in a while.  As I write this there are smattering that we may have signed a […]


Ivan Gazidis and the Q&A for supporter’s groups

    Q: Where are you at in terms of contract talks with Arsene?   IG: “What I really don’t want to do is have a public discussion about Arsene’s contractual position. That would be a daily, weekly fixture on the public coverage if you start getting into that. What I will say is that we think we have got a fantastic manager. We hope that he wants to do what he is doing for the long term. I believe he does. I think he is still ambitious, still driven and sees the potential of the club as he looks […]


4_Ward

  4_Ward By @landrysubira At the worst of times this season was very painful; I was seated in my brothers room, furious and sad that Arsenal had once more managed to fuck up a cup, the FA Cup against Blackburn. It was the lowest of the lows, the second time in one season that we had lost to a team far below us. I felt Arsene had failed the last time. I became a Wenger-Out basher, a person who did not believe that there was any way we would ever amount to anything. After being thrashed at home by Bayern, […]


What Next for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal?

Another season brings about another trophyless campaign for Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal. The last time Arsenal lifted silverware was at the end of the 2005 FA Cup Final against Manchester United. In truth, they were fortunate to win that game. Since then, the likes of Patrick Vieira, Thierry Henry, Kolo Toure, Ashley Cole, Mathieu Flamini, Cesc Fabregas, Robin van Persie, Samir Nasri, and Emmanuel Adebayor have left the club only to be replaced by players of inferior quality. While Arsenal battled bravely against Bayern Munich, it is painfully apparent that the team lacks the necessary quality to compete at the highest […]
