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

Steve Morrow. Remembered for only one thing. Being unceremoniously dumped on his head after scoring the winner in a cup final for Arsenal and nearly perishing. So, what better way to relive the moment than with Baddiel and Skinner taking the piss out it? [Mof Gimmers]

The Carling Cup final and now this… I know loads of non-Arsenal fans who will have chuckled out loud when PSV equalised at the Emirates last night. You want to shake Thierry Henry and his talented chums and shout: ‘For God’s sake, we know you’re all brilliant players, but just stick the ball in the […]

1 Why is it Ballack & Shevchenko can do it against Europe’s finest, but not against the likes of Wigan and Charlton? Must be very frustrating for Chelski fans.2 It’s never a good idea to headbutt the pitch. Just ask poor Mikael Silvestre.3 Celtic have got some very talented kids who should be proud of […]

Emmanuel ‘Evander Holyfield’ Adebayor apparently DIDN’T punch Frank ‘Looks a bit like KD Lang’ Lampard. Pity. After Arsene Wenger started spouting off and shouting "THE LINESMAN IS A BIG FAT LIAR!" to just about anyone who would listen, and then called for Fat Frank to come forward and save his striker. Lampard’s agent Steve Kutner […]

As expected, the FA have charged both Arsenal and Chelsea over this unsavoury brawl, which took place near the end of a drama-packed Carling Cup final. Arsenal’s Emmanuel Eboue (horrible little man) has been charged with violent conduct for striking Wayne Bridge (glass jaw). Emmanuel Adebayor (My Little Pony hair) has also been charged – […]

News reaches us that Premiership chairmen are going to be forced into cutting ‘obscene’ ticket prices because fans have just about had enough of being the victims of daylight robbery every weekend, and as a result, football has reached a tipping point. Two top-flight chairmen have expressed the same view, both of whom predict price […]

Thierry Henry skills video

February 16th, 2007

Terence Henry has come in for a lot of stick in recent weeks, not least from Pies. This video, posted on YouTube recently, reminds us why we loved him in the first place. Thierry, all is forgiven (well, perhaps not your stupid dance) – can we be friends again?

Message to Big Sam: Oh do shut up

February 15th, 2007

In the wake of Bolton’s 3-1 defeat by Arsenal last night, Sam Allardyce couldn’t resist having a pop at referee Chris Foy: ‘There were three bookings in the game and somehow, Tal [Ben Haim] has picked up two of them,’ Sam said. ‘I appreciate he might have pulled Baptista back on the second occasion but […]

Before I start, I’ll apologize to Football365 for blatantly pinching an article from their site. Anyway, on with the news. Samuel Eto’o is a very unhappy man. The world saw Eto’o going mental with the Spanish press after a dispute with Barca manager, Frank Rijkaard. The Dutchman has accused Eto’o of refusing to come on […]

Torres fancies Arsenal?

February 6th, 2007

It’s enough to make you sick. Spanish wonderboy, Fernando Torres is saying that, should he move to England, he fancies Arsenal. Imagine it. Torres, Fabregas, Van Persie… oh, and that Thierry Henry chap. They would officially be the most attractive footballing side on the planet.

Is Arsene Wenger a genius?

February 1st, 2007

When Arsene isn’t whining about fixture a pile-up, slapping Alan Pardew like a girl or failing to see a misdemeanour by one of his own players, he’s being a complete genius. As his second string Arsenal side brushed off the challenge of a strong Spurs side in the League Cup Semi Final last night I […]

Tonight, Arsenal take on Spurs in the decider for a place in the league cup final. Well, it must be deja-vu for some fans as 20 years ago, the two sides met in the 1987 league cup semi final, and what a thriller it was! Back then, Arsenal hadn’t won a trophy since 1979 and […]

Sing-a-long a Thierry Henry

January 26th, 2007

I think we may have had this on before, but it’s always worth seeing again. Thierry Henry scores a wonder goal and just when you think that nothing on earth could match it, the commentator steps up and gives a rousing rendition of the Cornetto advert. Bloody class. Why doesn’t Motty ever do this?

So, Keith Hackett wants the BBC to stop criticizing his referees eh? Well, like I said last week, if that’s going to happen, we need the match officials to sharpen up a bit. This weekend, much like any other footballing weekend, has seen a couple of incidents that have really stuck in my throat. The […]

Free travel to football matches

January 22nd, 2007

Fans who have experienced the thrill of an away match will know how addictive it is. The trip down, the pre-match pints in a strange pub, being in a strange ground. It’s like a holiday with a football match stuck in the middle of it! However, loads give it a wide berth because they can’t […]

Musician David Gray is to take to the commentary box for Sunday’s match between Arsenal and Manchester United. The 38-year-old will be a summariser on Radio Five Live Sports Extra’s 1920s-style coverage of the match.

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 […]

http://www.lancs.ac.uk/ug/jamesm2/image1.jpg Attention fans who are thinking of going to the Liverpool/Arsenal Carling Cup match tonight. The quarter-final tie is in doubt due to Anfield being shrouded in dense, thick, pea-soupy fog and a pitch inspection due at 18.15 pm…

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…
