Arsenal: All the latest Arsenal flavoured news, views, rumours and other assorted bits and bobs

Wow, who is Emmanuel Adebayor sleeping with at the FA? The Togolese striker faced a retrospective red card and a three-match ban for violent conduct after causing a cut across team-mate Nicklas Bendtner’s nose during the Carling Cup defeat at Tottenham on Tuesday night, but somehow – don’t ask me how – he has escaped […]

By Ollie Irish, Pies Ed. For all its Mickey Mouse reputation, the Carling Cup (aka League Cup, for old-school football fans) has enjoyed one of the finest weeks in its history – its stock has never been so high. Fans, managers, the media, everyone (bar Arsenal fans) seems to be taking it semi-seriously. And all […]

In the wake of ‘Arsenal Fight Club’ (aka the silly bust-up between Nicklas Bendtner and Manu Adebayor), I thought it would be interesting to ask, who do you think is Arsenal’s hardest player? Adebayor and Bendtner are both big, strong lads, but is there anyone in Arsenal’s current squad who could take them in a […]

The Daily Balls

January 24th, 2008

This morning’s five hottest football stories, rumours and lies: 1. Middlesbrough are happy to sell injury-prone Jonathan Woodgate to Newcastle Utd or Spurs. ‘Boro will want to recoup the £7m they paid to Real Madrid though. Independent 2. Arsene Wenger has been on the phone, offering Theo Walcott to any Premier League club that can […]

Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor is the subject of an FA probe after allegedly headbutting team-mate Nicklas Bendtner during the Gunners 5-1 Carling Cup defeat to Tottenham on Tuesday night. Surprisingly Arsene Wenger – renowned for his astute observations of his players misdemeanors – said: “I did not know anything about it. I didn’t see it.”

Perhaps this will raise a smile on every Gooner who is suffering today…

Spot the difference… More Shit Lookalikes

First up, some reaction from the big Arsenal blogs…
‘[Spurs] obviously had the momentum and once that’s going it’s hard to turn it around. They’re still an awful bunch of cockfisters though, singing that song about Arsene and throwing stuff at Cesc as he tried to take a corner. No amount of goals wins you any amount of class.’ Arseblog

Arsenal were one game away from a Wembley final, but Arsene Wenger stuck to his guns and played his ‘Carling Cup kids’ (not exactly kids, but a weaker team than he could have started with, anyway) at White Hart Lane. We all saw what happened. And, let’s face it, Spurs could have scored eight or […]

Can’t wait for the official DVD to appear. For now, this will do the job. Via 101GreatGoals

‘Herbert Chapman, Liam Brady, Charlie George, George Graham, Nigel Winterburn, Perry Groves, Nick Hornby, Pascal Cygan, Pat Rice, Arsene Wenger, Gilles Grimandi, Ian ‘Wrighty’ Wright… your boys took one hell of a beating!’ There, that had to be said. More to follow, obviously. I’ve waited almost nine years for this, and I’m gonna make the […]

It’s just a hunch I have. Put all your money on Tottenham to beat Arsenal in tonight’s second leg of their Carling Cup semi final. Seriously. I mean, the hoodoo has to end sometime, right? And tonight is about as good a chance as the Yid Army is going to get. Robin van Persie is […]

This lovely goal, scored in a pre-season friendly against SC Weiz of Austria in July 2005, is all about TH’s great first touch; the second and third touches are even better. When I see a video like this, it makes me realise that I genuinely miss Henry. English football is a slightly worse place without […]

I meant to put this team up when we were 19 games (i.e. exactly halfway through the season) into the Prem campaign. Still, better slightly late than never… here, for you to peruse/violently disagree with, is Pies’ Premier League team of the season, at the halfway stage (it will be interesting to see how much […]

It seems that Mad Jens Lehmann is off to Borussia Dortmund this month, ending weeks of speculation that he would leave Arsenal after losing his place to Manuel Aluminium. The Bundesliga club claims that Lehmann has agreed terms with them, but there are still a few Is to be dotted and Ts to be crossed […]

Firstly, this was a game Tottenham should have won. They were the better team last night, but we shouldn’t forget that Arsene Wenger fielded a virtual ‘B’ team, where Spurs started with a stronger, more experienced team.

Tonight sees the first leg – do we really need two legs? – of the second Carling Cup semi final. In the red corner, Arsenal’s kids and fringe players (minus Lassana Diarra, who may be on his way out of the club). In the blue corner, Spurs, who will put out a near full-strength side. […]

Gabriel ‘Sylar’ Gray (played by American actor Zachary Quinto) is one bad motherf**ker in Heroes – he steal everyone’s superpowers, by slicing open their heads no less, and then does bad things with them.

Perhaps not the most wonderful wonder goal you’ve ever seen, but I love its beautiful simplicity. Kanu’s flick is perfectly timed – Luke Young doesn’t know if he’s coming or going. More wonder goals
