Report: Arsenal 4-4 Tottenham

By Randy Osae Arsenal dropped two points in as many minutes in what should not have been a quite dramatic eight-goal thriller had more character been shown. Wenger’s men were comfortably two goals ahead on the 88th minute mark, and only an agonizing stunner – which came courtesy of Jenas and Lennon – could let […]

Report: West Ham 0-2 Arsenal

By Randy Osae An inspired contribution from the bench by Emmanuel Adebayor helped Arsenal to a convincing 2-0 triumph at a fiery Upton Park. Skipper William Gallas returned from injury, while Nicklas Bendtner replaced a rested Emmanuel Adebayor to partner Robin van Persie in attack.

Report: Arsenal 3-1 Everton

By Randy Osae With the pressure on amid poor results in past weeks, Arsenal were very much up against it today, but despite trailing at half-time, the Gunners raided Everton for a 3-1 comeback victory. Injuries to several of the back four’s causalities meant Mikael Silvestre and Alex Song filled in for Gallas and Sagna. […]

Arsenal defender arrested

By Randy Osae Arsenal reserves’ star and current loan-boy Kerrea Gilbert was privately arrested on the night of September 24 for been under the influence of alcohol and with disorderly conduct. Gilbert who is very much a familiar misbehaving personality in Arsenal’s ranks will be trialed during January and possibly awaits a condemning verdict. The […]
