How bad would Özil leaving really be?

I have so many questions since Mesut Özil‘s, and actually our whole team’s performance against Manchester City.

Why are you not starting your record signing against probably the biggest team in the league right now? And when he did come on he showed his value immediately. Are Wenger and Lacazette having personal...

“St. Totteringham’s Day on April 30th, save the date!”

Will we get to celebrate St. Totteringham’s Day again this season? According to these statistics, the answer is YES! Based on the past three league results versus their remaining league opponents, I have made a prediction on how the current top three in the league will finish their season.

Disappointing results in the league, getting knocked out of the FA Cup by Leicester, and two goals behind in tonight’s second leg match against FC Barcelona. Surely Arsenal seem to need nothing short of a miracle if they are to progress to the Quarter Finals of the UEFA Champions League.
