Why Are Arsenal Players All Leaving?

So bye-bye RvP. On the face of it £24m for a 29-year old injury prone striker is not bad business for the seller. The BBC are reporting that he was basically kicked out, having decided he wanted to stay. I’m not sure whether to believe that and maybe the truth will remain somewhat shrouded for…

Do you want to write a blog?

All this blogging is a lot of effort, so I asked earlier on Twitter if anyone wanted to do a guest post (if you replied, I’ll get back to you). However, those who want to will need to be able to write at least moderately well. As I do proofing for The Gooner magazine (not…

Clive Allen’s Anniversary

I’m reminded by Arsenal on This Day that today is the 32nd anniversary of Clive Allen leaving Arsenal for Crystal Palace. Thirty-two years is a long time to hold a grudge, but Mr Allen seems to be managing it okay. See how he almost barges a frail pensioner out of the way on the touchline…

After the furore caused by the RvP statement a few weeks ago it’s all gone quiet. Interest from various clubs…

Do you want a free Arsenal shirt?

I’ve had enough of Spurs fans’ abuse now after a couple of days of it, so here’s something different. I’m getting close to 5,000 followers on twitter, so when I get there I’ll give away this Arsenal shirt from 2006. As you can see, it’s the redcurrant ‘last season at Highbury’ special. There is no…
