Take Five…Arsenal Shortcomings
Five points clear, a stellar midfield, in-form striker and a settled defence – this is the season to be cheerful for Gunners' fans. But ask pretty much any of them and they'll firmly shake their head when asked the question 'So Arsenal, going to win the league this season?' And that pessimism is backed up by the bookies. There are two main external reasons for all this doom and gloom, spelled C-H-E-L-S-E-A and M-A-N C-I-T-Y respectively. And there's an even larger internal one – Arsenal haven't looked like a title-winning side since Patr
Just what is going on at Hackney Marshes?
Hackney Marshes is one of the most infamous parts of London – with its long history of being the breeding ground for some of English football's greatest ever players. David Beckham and Bobby Moore have both trained on the Marshes before going on to captain England, while countless other players have used the turf as a means of carving out a career. But Hackney Marshes could soon became famous for something else – after Mysterious Circles appeared in recent days. The giant spheres arrived earlier this week, along with hundreds of mini ones,
Arsene Wenger’s faith in Aaron Ramsey finally pays off Star man: Aaron Ramsey
Arsene Wenger has been at the helm at Arsenal for an amazing 17 years now, and thanks to his team’s amazing performance is able to celebrate this landmark leading the Premier League. And the man behind the surge of brilliance is Aaron Ramsey, who has finally come back from his injuries and is proving Wenger was right to have such faith in him. Ramsey was beleaguered by a broken leg he sustained three years ago when being tackled by Stoke City’s Ryan Shawcross. It’s taken a long time for the 22 year old midfielder from Wales to recover but
Are Arsenal good value to win at 8/1?
At the time of writing, you can have a go on the Gunners to land the title with the major bookies at around 8-1. That seems pretty good value. OK, you may be derisorily guffawing at the prospect; sad though that may be. But ask yourself who will win the Premier League if we don’t? Obviously, we have four major contenders – five if you dare to count those at the Lane whose name shall not be spoken. But here’s the thing; they’ve all got problems. First off, Chelsea are favourites but don’t like anything like the real deal of old as yet

Five famous Arsenal fans you might not know about
There’s no shortage of celebrity admirers of the Arsenal; from legendary music performers Mick Jagger and Jay-Z, to sports stars including Lewis Hamilton and Ian Poulter. However, with an estimated 27,000,000 fans world-wide, there’s a few faces who we may have overlooked. Introducing 5 of our fellow Gooners you may not have known about: Hugh Laurie Although not as publically forth-coming in his love of the beautiful game as fellow Blackadder star Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, who git global celebrity status for his portrayal of the enigmatic D
Competition: Win a copy of FIFA 14 with Young Guns
It’s no secret that footballers need a mix of technical, tactical and physical skills. As well as good technique, endurance and speed are the key to good performance on the pitch. Players are expected to run for long durations, interspersed with small rapid sprints throughout a 90-minute period – or even longer if extra time is needed. Football can be a gruelling sport, with players afforded very few rest periods during the game. Their endurance is impressive – especially in comparison with other sports where there are plenty of opportuni
Mesut Ozil signing must herald new transfer approach Class: Mesut Ozil
Mesut Ozil's late arrival at the Emirates was greeted with much relief and considerable joy by Gunners fans and players alike on transfer deadline day, but his capture must now be backed up by a much more structured transfer policy from the club in January. Everyone knows the story over the summer. Arsenal, we were (in the end correctly) told, had a stash of cash to spend on the right quality of player(s), that would potentially turn them from perennial top-four finishers into a side capable of being among the favourites in the Premier League t
Arsene Wenger ready to give Nicklas Bendtner a chance
After the euphoria of signing Mesut Ozil died down, Arsenal fans will have come back down to earth again when they realised that Nicklas Bendtner was still at the club. The 25-year-old Denmark international striker has not featured in the Gunners first team for over two years, his last appearance coming in the 2-0 home defeat to Liverpool in August 2011. He spent most of the 2011-12 campaign on loan at Sunderland, where he found the net eight times in 28 Premier League appearances, before joining Juventus last term, although he only started two
