Herzlich Wilcommen Lukas Podolski

By Walter Broeckx

What has been whispered for a while now has become official now. Lukas Podolski is joining Arsenal from next season. The official website from FC Köln has made it public on their website.

By Billy the Dog McGraw.

A little while ago, while celebrating Robin Van Persie’s Double Player of the Year success, the idea came up that we should have our Untold Awards.

With a little bit of luck…. (and some comments from Mr Wenger on Stoke/Arsenal)

By Walter Broeckx

Well it didn’t look that way at first but it was a very good day for Arsenal.

The game started well for Arsenal. Apart from the usual trouble with some high punts from Stoke it was Arsenal who had the first two clear chanses of the game. But we didn’t take them.

20 years of the EPL. Was it good or bad for English football?

The Robin Double: what it means for Wenger, the player and the club

While it would take a journalist of such utterly blinkered proportions to ignore the sensational achievements of Robin van Persie this season, there is always an opportunity in every great story for journalists to cast doubt.

So it is with our Double Player of the Year man. He’s won the awards, but immediately some […]

This summer’s signings: Mario Götze’s arrival precedes massive clearout.

By Billy The Dog McGraw

Our man in the swamp

There is a general feeling among the great and good that the current series of articles on Arsenal’s signings this summer has been a bit lacking in, well, what’s the word. Rabies? No. Razzamataz? No. Ridiculousness. That’s the word.
