re: EPL Fixtures are out - FirstRoundPick
Everyone remembers Arsenal's run through March and April last year when our title challenge completely collapsed? Manchester United certainly have a favorable start to the season, but their March and April in 2015 is absolutely brutal. Not what you want to see as a United fan late in the year whe...

Saw a tweet after the game (maybe from gunnerblog or arseblog?) that said Podolski's 10 goals he has scored this season have come in just over 1,100 minutes played on the season. If you just consider that 90 minutes is a full game, that's 10 goals in 13 games played! Grea return I would say. Show...

The news just keeps getting better and better ahead of what is one of the most important games of our season. It's just comical at this point. Of course there's been all this talk about an investigation into what is causing all our injuries, but we all know nothing is going to come of it. Wasn...

Haven't seen anybody post this yet, but below is a highlight reel of Josip Drmic from this Bundesliga season. The rest of his team must be absolute crap if they are fighting relegation. Either way, he seems like he could be a great addition to our strike force, if he's not the only player Wenger bri...
