Alas, that a late, late flurry from West Ham should deny us a dramatic last day shoot-out.
While our own season may be something of a smouldering ruin, there is life enough left in it that we might be able to cause problems for others
Tonight's clash with Crystal Palace may just set the tone for the rest of our season...so what's at stake?
It may well be an outdated way of doing business – and it may also have “incensed” Crystal Palace – but I believe Arsenal were right to open the bidding for Wilfred Zaha at £40million. ‘Why not just pay the asking price like everyone else?’ is the inevitable and, frankly, pretty credible question that is … Continue reading Wilfred Zaha: Why Arsenal were right to open the bidding at £40million
All-knowing football deity, David Ornstein, says his understanding of the situation is that, had Arsenal achieved Champions League football, a deal for Wilfred Zaha would have been relatively straightforward for the Gunners.
