On This Day In 2015: Arsenal run through West Brom 0

Posted on May 24, 2018 by Harry Kettle

It’s time to take another trip down memory lane, and this time, we’re looking at something a little bit more positive – which is nice, seeing as things are also going quite well for the Gunners in the present day. Three years ago, Arsenal defeated West Bromwich Albion 4-1 in a convincing final day performance to ensure that they would automatically qualify for the UEFA Champions League group stages, as opposed to going through the playoff round.

It’s time to take yet another trip down memory lane, and while this one is certainly dramatic, it won’t bring back the fondest of memories for Arsenal fans. Seven years ago today, the Gunners drew 2-2 with Fulham in a game which ensured that they would be finishing in fourth position to conclude their Premier League campaign. While some may see that as a positive, especially considering how the last few years have gone for them, it was still a disappointing result as they were unable to jump into the top three which would’ve given them an automatic passage into the UEFA Champions League for the following season.

We’re back for yet another trip down memory lane, and this one comes from a game that took place three years ago. It was Arsenal vs Manchester United in a clash that was set to provide some clarity on who would end up finishing 3rd in the Premier League, and thankfully for the Gunners, they were able to ‘hold serve’ so to speak by picking up a 1-1 draw against The Red Devils at Old Trafford.

It’s time for yet another trip down memory lane, and it’s a mixed one for Arsenal fans to digest. Twelve months ago today, the Gunners ensured that the race for a spot in the top four would come down to the final game of the season after they defeated Sunderland 2-0. While that, in itself, sounds like a good thing, all Arsenal fans will remember is their eventual feeling of dread when they realised they wouldn’t be competing in the UEFA Champions League after the aforementioned final game had been and gone.

On This Day In 2006: Arsenal battle Tottenham 0

Welcome back to yet another trip down memory lane, as we look back at one of the many Premier League encounters between bitter rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur. The North London counterparts were both battling it out for 4th spot in the top flight, and as this game proved, there was very little to separate the sides – although you could sense that Tottenham Hotspur were a team on the rise.

It’s always fun to take a look back on years gone by, especially when it comes to Arsenal. While the last few years have been questionable, the Gunners are largely considered to be one of the most successful English clubs of the modern era. As such, they’ve been involved in some fascinating matches, with this clash against Middlesbrough from twelve months ago being one of them.

It’s always nice to take a trip down memory lane, especially when it comes to football. As fans, we can often get so caught up in the trials and tribulations of supporting our team in the present day, that we forget to stop and smell the roses. Obviously, sometimes there are no roses to be found, which is why looking back on days gone by can be such a wonderful release.

On This Day: Arsenal run through West Ham United 0

Posted on April 05, 2018 by Harry Kettle

While there’s plenty to be stressed out about if you’re an Arsenal fan in 2018, it’s always worth remembering that there have been some good times celebrated by the club in years gone by. We’ve seen trophies being lifted, last minute goals being scored, and a whole lot of victories over Tottenham Hotspur.

With that being said, it’s also interesting to take a look at the club’s recent history in order to analyse how far they’ve come in the span of twelve months. So then, let’s take a short trip down memory lane to April 5th, 2017 when Arsene Wenger led his Arsenal side to their first victory in over a month against London rivals West Ham United.
