'If It's Football, It's Vital'

2007 - The Year Of The Gun

I look back on 2006 with many fond memories but I look forward to 2007 with hopes of better ones.

With a busy Christmas safely tucked behind us now and 9 points in the bag, the less said about Sheffield the better, we can look forward to meeting Liverpool twice in two cup competitions and then both Manchester clubs as we continue to move forward this month.

Henry decided to make an early comeback and looked remarkably fresh and his old lethal self, RVP has decided he has got the taste of scoring and I hope he will show Liverpool which is the superior Dutchman tomorrow and Theo is showing us what an amazing talent he is with Henry never too far away to drop in a praising word or two.

With our injuries lightening now and players ready to come back, you could say that 2007 is looking to be a good year for the faithful down at Ashburton Grove.
Wenger continues to come up with gems of players for no little money and has clearly said no matter what their nationality if they are good enough they will play.

Historically Arsenal always play much better second half of the season for some strange reason, and with many of the youngsters now coming of age and finding themselves I think the same is going to happen this year.

It is my personal belief that Arsenal can claw back the 9pts gap from Chelsea and with United yet to have a bad spell, who knows what could happen from there. I suffer from that terrible decease of being the eternal optimist, but as the old saying in football goes "it ain`t over till the fat man sings "without wanting to refer to Martin Jol in a derogatory way!

And finally if we get to February unbeaten at home, that would signal a year of being unbeaten at home, I know not as good as Chelsea`s record or Liverpool for that fact, but it shows that something is starting at Ashburton Grove and The Gunners are going to be firing on all fronts this year!

it was either this or watch Celeb Big brother !
And after catching a glimpse of Leo Sayer telling the weird one from steps to massage his temple as my wife watched enthralled, I don't frigging blame you mate!!
LOL lads. I cant say I'm much of an optimist but that has given me some faith for the remainder of our domestic season.
Top four finish will do for this season....anything else will be a bonus!!
I say top 3 this season, top spot next season. As PG said, the youngsters are coming of age, with that my expectations of them rise. People say that my generation of Gooners are spoilt with success, I dont think this is the case, I think my knowledge of Arsenal right back through the 80's in good for someone of my age and I'm no glory hunter. I think my expectations of the team are reasonable. Mini drunken rant over...
shoud be an enthrallign 2nd half of the season. I still feel we'll be some way behind the front two, if only cos we have left ourselves a little too much to make up, though i think we could well match them stride for stride, and that would bode well for next season, most certainly. »»Arsene Knows««
United are gonna go into freefall and the chavs are in sight...victory tomorrow will galvanise us to the glorious summit of the premiership table...u better believe it
Anon 1
Good stuff!! Second half of the season will see us closin on chavs, Scousers will def falter and stumble, top 3 at least but CL is the ultimo and you know we are hungrier than ever for that sucker! On a separate note any Hip Hop gooners will probably know this already but if you yearn 4 decent gooner tunes check out this I been a gunner since '79 first time I ever saw the red & white I knew the team would be mine Sheer class, gotta admit spuddies Chas n Dave don't compete he he
I love 'Gooners since 79' Do you have a myspce page mate?
Hey Guyz i know this is out of topic but plz any of u guyz have any websit which i can download GAols of mighty Arsenal plz plz reply it here i had one site but it has stopped updating sooooo plz i really want arsenal goals, plz let me know if u know such a site:D thanks
i think united are due a bad patch, they are yet to have one, and chelsea are still in one, we can make ground and i think 3rd is a target for us this year, as Rocky said, anything higher is bonus, but not unrealistic.. Henry said feb 1st will show exactly is going to happen, i think the picture will be alot clearer by then.
PG you always make us feel more optimistic and that's really awesome, lets hope everything you said comes true and maye 2007 be our year..
Fingers crossed, we can still get second place if Chelsea carry on the way they have. We are in good form (see 3-1 victory tonight).
well seems 2007 is still going strong now we despatched liverpool in one cup, roll on tuesday now :)
If we ever get to play our strongest team people will suffer! Today we produced that performance without Super Cesc, Vs Sp*rs and Man Utd no Henry. Watch out!
cesc was missed badly, just goes to show what he does in midfield, but he is back for tuesday ! and once gallas is back... i keep saying this is our year things start changing !
