Arsenal’s Mertesacker and Koscielny combine for hilarious commentary on Gunners clash

Arsenal’s central defensive partnership of Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny has come under some scrutiny of late, but if doesn’t seem to be ruining their spirits after a video of the Gunners duo commentating on their home game against Newcastle from


Former Arsenal reject Nicklas Bendtner scores superb overhead kick

Nicklas Bendtner tends to be compared to the likes of Emile Heskey due to his largely poor displays during his time in England. There’s no doubting that there’s a good player in there somewhere but he just doesn’t seem to put a


Is Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere overrated?

I’ve never been Jack Wilshere’s biggest fan. Spitting on a taxi driver for wearing a Tottenham hat showed the sort of person he is. And I don’t buy into the theory that the 22 year-old Arsenal midfielder is the best English talent we’ve

Some potential signings for Arsenal

Four things that need to change at Arsenal

On Sunday, Arsenal lost 3-0 to Everton at Goodison Park which has thrown their challenge for fourth-place into question. This comes just a couple of months after they were flying high at the top of the table and looking like


You gotta spend money to make money

Arsenal and the Champions League are a match made in hell. Twice drawing Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona side in the knockout stages and twice drawing Bayern Munich, it would be easy for the Gunners to make excuses and praise the opposition as ‘the
