Szczesny Confident Arsenal’s Drought Will End, Cerci Knows Nothing About PL Interest, Wilshere Wants Armband, Cesc Staying…

Wojciech Szczesny

Szczesny Confident Arsenal’s Drought Will End Wojciech Szczesny is confident that Arsenal FC will get their hands on a major trophy if they concentrate on simply maintaining their impressive start to the new season. The Gunners last won a major title back in 2005 when they edged Manchester United in the FA Cup final on […]

Szczesny Commits Future to Arsenal, Bendtner Dreaming of Real and Barca, Flamini Rapped, More Dzeko Competition…


Szczesny Commits ‘Long-Term’ Future to Arsenal Arsenal FC have announced that goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has formally put pen to paper on a new ‘long-term’ deal with the club. Speculation had been rife for the past few weeks that the 23-year-old Pole was ready to commit himself to the Gunners, and the two parties have now officially […]

Arsenal goalkeeping: Crisis what Crisis?


When it comes to the goalkeeping department, Arsenal has never been accused of being the strongest Premier League club in the past several seasons. The club’s last world-class keeper was David Seaman and Jens Lehmann could probably be considered an adequate or good goalie. However, since Lehmann’s departure, the goalkeeping hasn’t kept up with the […]

Deja vu, all over again

RVP 2012

We’ve been here before, haven’t we? Too many times. Star player…club captain…one-man team…selling club. The words have lost all meaning. Though I have been toughened up by so many recent experiences (or perhaps simly grown numb to the modern running of Arsenal FC) I have to, as ever, express my disappointment at Arsene Wenger and […]

Arsenal lose grip on 3rd place


With five games to go, 3rd place was in Arsenal’s hands. It wasn’t the season we’d hoped for, but considering how badly we started, we looked like saving some dignity. Four games later, we are looking at another typical end-of-season collapse. Of course, it’s nothing like last season, where the prize we’d lost was far […]

Bald truth for Arsenal’s Gervinho…dodgy hair-do faces axe


Hic! Henry Norris is the rather squiffy football correspondent of the Bugle newspaper and an ardent Arsenal supporter to boot. Each week he’ll join us here at to bring you his forthright views on all things AFC…please be advised, he hits the bottle early! Hair-raising matters What is all this blasted fuss over Carl […]

Arsenal go direct in smash-and-grab win


So often the story with Arsenal is now well we played and how unlucky we were to lose. Quite the opposite today as we inflicted a first home defeat of the season on Liverpool. A header from a cross and a volley from a lofted through-ball – not exactly Arsenal-like goals under Arsene Wenger, but […]

Lacklustre Arsenal draw a blank


Arsenal were uninspiring at best, cocky at worst, against Marseille in a 0-0 draw at the Emirates tonight. It was disappointing to see the players unable to build on the fantastic win at Chelsea. Overall, the team lacked urgency, Walcott reverted to type, and Park was invisible. Szczesny nearly cost us a stupid goal after […]

Now Arsenal No.1 Szczesny hints at Barcelona move


Wojciech Szczesny has refused to rule out following former captain Cesc Fabregas and switching from Arsenal to Barcelona. But Szczesny admits any future move to the current European Champions would not be motivated by money. The Metro this morning reports that the 21-year-old described the club as ‘his second home’ in an interview with the […]

Szczesny: Arsenal still pride of north London


Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny reckons we are still the pride of North London even though we lost to that lot on Sunday. Szczesny told the Mirror: “You can’t say the balance of power has shifted after just a couple of months. We’ve had a poor start to the season but you can’t say they’re in the […]

Now Szczesny’s Crocked


The injury-curse blighting Arsenal’s season struck again on Monday when goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny pulled out of the Poland squad for two upcoming friendlies against South Korea and Belarus with a bad back. Szczesny, 21, who has played six time for Poland, was due to meet up with his international team mates this week but the official Polish FA […]
