On This Day In 2017: Arsenal miss out on UCL 0

Posted on May 21, 2018 by Harry Kettle

It’s time for yet another trip down memory lane, but unfortunately, this one isn’t quite as favourable. Twelve months ago today Arsenal finished off their strong end to the Premier League season with a convincing 3-1 victory over Everton, but unfortunately, the Gunners missed out on a spot in the top four as a result of Liverpool running out 3-0 winners over Middlesbrough.

Arsene Wenger’s side needed to ensure that they bettered Liverpool’s result in order to stand any chance of qualifying for Europe’s top club competition, but for the first time in what felt like forever, they failed.

On This Day In 2013: Arsenal seal UCL qualification 0

We’re back for yet another trip down memory lane, and once again, it’s time to look back on another edition of St Totteringham’s Day! Yes, that’s right, five years ago today, Arsenal fans all around the world were celebrating the fact that they’d pipped bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur to fourth spot which ensured they would be playing in the UEFA Champions League for another year.

As sound as that may sound, by 2013, any realistic hopes of Arsenal crashing the title race picture had pretty much been and gone. Because of that, qualifying for the UCL was considered to be the bare minimum that Arsene Wenger should’ve been achieving, and he did so after masterminding a narrow 1-0 victory over Newcastle United.

We’re back with yet another trip down memory lane, and while we can’t celebrate it this year, St Totteringham’s Day was in full swing two years ago when many thought it’d be cancelled. If you aren’t aware of what we’re talking about, Arsenal’s 4-0 victory over Aston Villa coupled together with Newcastle United’s 5-1 demolition of Tottenham Hotspur meant that Arsene Wenger’s side finished above their bitter rivals yet again in the Premier League.

It’s that time again as we take a trip down memory lane, and unfortunately, it’s a painful memory for Arsenal fans. We’ll only be rewinding the clock twelve months for this one, to a day which many fans were hoping would never come – the cancellation of St Totteringham’s Day. For those who don’t know, St Totteringham’s Day is the annual occasion in which the Gunners can celebrate officially finishing above their bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur. This time around, however, that moment would elude them.

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.

Szczesny’s Tottenham comments showcase his love for Arsenal 0

In the midst of the hustle and bustle following Tottenham Hotspur’s loss to Juventus, it was easy to miss some of the comments made by Wojciech Szczesny.

The Juve keeper, who spent many years on the books at the Emirates, had some fascinating things to say to The Guardian regarding the support of the North London club in the wake of The Old Lady progressing to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League.

“There were a couple [of Tottenham] fans – very vocal – next to my bench, who went missing after the 80th minute, so yeah, I enjoyed it. Plus winning at Wembley is always special.”

How Arsenal could still ruin Tottenham Hotspur’s season 0

St Totteringham’s Day, also known as the annual holiday where Arsenal supporters celebrate finishing above their bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League, is likely going to be cancelled for a second consecutive year.

The Gunners find themselves thirteen points behind Spurs with just nine games to go, and when you consider that Mauricio Pochettino’s men are comfortably positioned in fourth spot, that also means Arsene Wenger only has one realistic chance of securing Champions League football at the Emirates next season.

Ironically enough, however, that route could also serve as the perfect foil for Tottenham’s plans of entering Europe’s top club competition in 2018/19.

Jack Wilshere issues apology to Arsenal faithful – will they appreciate it? 0

Posted on March 05, 2018 by Harry Kettle

As Arsenal fans continue to come to terms with what is becoming a disastrous league campaign, Jack Wilshere has taken to Twitter in order to try and somewhat restore the team’s image with an apology.

This isn’t the first time that the 26-year-old has been forced to explain himself, although this time, he seems to agree with the fans regarding the recent criticism of the club.

The tweet, which was put out in the early hours of the morning, said the following: “I’m sorry to the gooners out there. You deserve better. Thats all i have to say. I know its difficult at the moment in this difficult period we are going through as a team but we need you. We will do better but please stick with us”.

Nice president tells Arsenal and Tottenham that Seri won’t be leaving in January 0

Posted on September 21, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Nice president Jean-Pierre Rivere has stated that coveted midfielder Jean Michael Seri will not be sold when the January transfer window opens. The 26-year-old was close to a move to Barcelona in the summer before the deal broke down at the last minute. The Catalans have since signed midfielder Paulinho and seem content with their options in the engine room this season.

Arsenal and Tottenham, however, remain interested according to reports. The Gunners have recently welcomed back Jack Wilshere who can provide creativity and ball retention in midfield, but his injury record means he’s unlikely to last the entire season fit. Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka has been the familiar partnership of late, but Seri would be an improvement on either player.

Transfer boost for Arsenal as Nice president hints at Seri exit 0

OGC Nice president Jean-Pierre Rivère has revealed the club will sanction two more sales to raise more for incomings, which could mean Arsenal-target Jean-Michael Seri could be available this summer, reports the Metro.

Believed to have a £36m release clause, the Nice midfielder could yet be on his way to Arsenal after the latest revelations. “There should be three or four more arrivals, and two departures. We want to finish these as soon as possible, but certain cases take more time than others,” Rivère told L’Equipe.
