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

Crisis club Chelsea – although second in the Premiership is the kind of crisis most clubs would kill for – are fair game at the moment. And Arsenal‘s Alexander Hleb has taken the opportunity to have a potshot. The Belarussian has claimed Andriy Shevchenko is too old to adapt to the English game. Hleb, aged […]

So, the Fourth Round draw for the FA Cup has been made with some tasty looking ties. Notts Forest have been drawn away at Chelsea and will be looking to cause further upset after beating Charlton at the weekend, but the pick of the draw is Arsenal against Bolton. Always a feisty game, with El-Hadji […]

Mischievous Arsenal striker Thierry Henry plays a prank on a young mascot leaving Ajax skipper Tomas Galasek looking very guilty and eager to plead his innocence! More Funny Old Game served up by Pies here [Rob Parker]

The running stories of the newly opened transfer window seem likely to be the chases for two talented young full-backs. Real Madrid have joined the parties interested in 17-year-old Southampton left-back Gareth Bale. The Mirror reports that Manchester United, Arsenal and Spurs are all waiting to throw £7 million at the Welsh international. It seems […]

Champions League last 16 draw

December 15th, 2006

The draw for the first knockout stage of the Champions League has been made. I intended to tell you what the tie of the round is, but they all look so lip-smackingly delicious I can’t decide! The draw in full is: Porto v CHELSEA – Mourinho heads back to the club he won the title […]

http://i.a.cnn.net/si/2005/writers/arash_markazi/10/07/hot.read/p1_lampard.jpg Frank Lampard is the master of saying nasty things according to Mad Jens Lehmann. Well, judging from the tepid tyrade from Fat Frank, I’m inclined to disagree. Apparently, the ker-azy German goalie “shows no respect” to anyone on the pitch…

Does this even count as handbags? Handbags is a bit too manly to describe the shenanigans between Jens Lehmann and Didier Drogba in yesterday’s Chelsea-Arsenal match. Try to keep a straight face as they drag football’s reputation through the Stamford Bridge mud! Both players were booked in the end (for diving I sincerely hope, and […]

Chelsea‘s Ashley Cole will be greeted by a shower of fake £20 notes when he faces former club Arsenal on Sunday. An email has been circulating urging Gooners to cut out the notes – which feature Cole’s head rather than the Queen’s -  and "wave them in the direction of greedy little Cashley Hole". The […]

Nicolas Anelka scored a spectacular goal against Arsenal on Saturday to open his account for Bolton, but here he is back in the days when he was happy and skinny scoring his first goal for the Gunners. An 18-year-old Anelka scored this goal against Manchester United in 1997 as he helped his side towards the […]

The gang at TShirts365 have created yet another gem. This time it features Arsenal‘s Kolo Toure sporting a very nice Afro. The t-shirt will no doubt be snapped up by Gunners fans, among whom the Ivorian defender has cult status. The Kolo t-shirt costs £14.99 and is available by clicking here. [Rob Parker]

Arsenal star Freddie Ljungberg was ruled out of Sweden‘s match against Ivory Coast on Wednesday by a piece of cheese. The midfielder accidentally ate the dairy product at an awards ceremony where he was voted Swedish Player of the Year. Ljungberg, who has a cheese intolerance, was left vomiting in a bin and warning staff […]

England manager Steve McClaren was forced to call upon an inexperienced Arsenal youngster yesterday just to get enough players for a nine-a-side match. After a spate of withdrawals from his original 28-man squad, McClaren turned to 19-year-old Academy player Matthew Connolly (pictured) as the England set-up descended into farce. The centre-back joined the England squad […]

Lord Stevens is being urged to name innocent clubs today that are not involved in his bungs investigation. Several club chairmen will put their case at a meeting today, arguing that their clubs have been tainted by accusations after Lord Stevens announced that there were a total of eight clubs and 39 deals under investigation. […]

West Ham‘s Teddy Sheringham has been told to start acting his age by the father of Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas. Francesc Fabregas Snr – who at the 39 is one year younger than the Sheringham – was speaking after the veteran striker clashed with his son during the fiery meeting between the two sides on […]

Arsene Wenger and Alan Pardew have both been handed improper conduct charges by the FA following their scuffle at Upton Park on Saturday. A statement on the FA website said: " The charges relate to their alleged aggressive and confrontational behaviour towards the end of the match at Upton Park on Sunday 5 November. They […]

http://eur.news1.yimg.com/eur.yimg.com/ng/sp/empics/2536845 The FA has launched investigations into the two coin-throwing incidents at the West Ham/Arsenal and Fulham/Everton matches that took place over the weekend. On Saturday, Fulham’s Claus Jensen was hit by a coin thrown by an Everton fan in their 1-0 victory at Craven Cottage and Gunners’ striker Robin van Persie was struck by 2p at Upton Park on Sunday during the Gunners’ 1-0 defeat…

There were some bizarre scenes at the end of West Ham‘s 1-0 victory over Arsenal yesterday. Alan Pardew‘s celebration of the Hammers’ last-minute winner apparently offended Arsene Wenger, which led to an exchange of words and a bit of shoving. The obligatory shunned handshake followed the final whistle. Pardew has now apologised for his celebrations. […]

Real Madrid‘s on-loan (and soon to be permanent, it seems) David Beckham replacement, Jose Antonio Reyes, has hit out at shop closing times in England. Reyes – whose serial moaning to Spanish newspapers during his time at Arsenal indicated he wasn’t particularly happy – also said he did not even want to think about returning […]

"…Thomas charging through the midfield… Thomas… it’s up for grabs nooooow  THOMAAASSS!!!"  Surely these words are tatoo’ed on every single Arsenal fans minds? Has there ever been a better close to a season? Liverpool all set to win the league on goal difference if they could keep the score at Anfield 1-0 to the gunners… […]

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/graphics/2005/01/17/sfnhan17.jpg Arsene Wenger loves the beautiful game. Us fans love the beautiful game too. However, people who support smaller clubs like watching their side beat Arsenal by any means even more. Which is precisely Arsene’s gripe. Wenger has said that he’s becoming bored by…

In August 1997, Dennis Bergkamp scored one of the best ever Premier League hat-tricks in a match against Leicester. The third goal was the pick of the bunch and bears more than a passing resemblance to the World Cup wonder goal he would score against Argentina at the end of the season. [Rob Parker]

What gets your vote as the best Premiership goal of the week? Our vote goes to Gareth Barry’s beauty against Spurs, no question.
