YEAAAAAHHH! We did it
YEAAAAAHHH! We did it
What a finish to a suprising season.
Now comes the worst part... the transfer saga with RVP.
I really think he'll stay though- if Wenger can clear out the dead weight and make one more really good signing- and give RVP his dues
Think I'll leave this thread up a couple more days before starting the thread for next season.
Way to go Gunners! fffuuuccckkk yyeesaaaaahhhh!!!! Great season lads, let's go win this $#@!ing thing next year!
“@JackWilshere: Every Gooner will be a Chelsea fan next week....”
Wow. That was a fun Sunday.
Everyone hug your mom extra tight today.
So... RvP is staying, right?
[QUOTE=Cluttered;3964775]Not sure what happened to my post here...I said I love Jack and hope he comes back the same player.
Dbecks, was ManU Mike there today? I would love to have seen the look on his face.

Oh my... that graphic is beyond fantastic.
(They technically don't open until 11, but the kind woman running the joint opened it up early. Of all people, a couple of Sp*rs fans at the Richmond Arms told me about it & called ahead to see if they were open. All rivalry aside, I'm glad I ran into them today.)
Can anyone get video or a .gif of Gibbs' tackle in the box? That was $#@!ing heroic.
From our friend, Mr. Nasri:
Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has mocked Arsenal fans, after seeing the north London side finish third in the Premier League as his new club won the title.
Nasri departed the Gunners for the Etihad Stadium at the start of the season in a multi-million pound deal that led many Arsenal fans to accuse the Frenchman of leaving for the money.
Nasri has now hit back at those same critics - goading Arsenal fans that he is celebrating winning the title while they are left to mull over another trophyless campaign.
"People at Arsenal tried to make out that I came here for the money," Nasri said. "I hope they are watching me now, collecting my Premier League winner's medal. I believe they have not won a trophy for many years now.
"I made the hard choice to come and fight for my place at a big club, where they never settle for second best, and I have proved it correct.
"I now hope the Arsenal fans can get on with their lives and forget me, they should celebrate their third-place achievement and I will focus on winning titles."
Nasri also suggested that some players at Arsenal are not giving their all to the cause, but are happy to take their wages and settle for third place in the table.
"If all that I was interested in was money, the easiest decision would have been to stay at Arsenal, picking up my money every week and walking into the team," he said.
"There are many people doing this right now at Arsenal."
So tomorrow's the big day?
And £130K a week? That's it?!? (City can double that offer.)
Van Persie talks to Arsenal as City circle
A clutch of clubs are keen to secure van Persie, with newly crowned champions Manchester City able to offer the 28-year-old financial terms that would easily eclipse anything tabled by Arsenal.
However, the Daily Mail reported Tuesday that van Persie, currently earning around 70,000 pounds ($112,000) per week, would be offered a three-year deal worth a weekly salary of 130,000 pounds plus a signing bonus of 5 million pounds.
The Mail reported that van Persie will meet Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and club chief executive Ivan Gazidis Wednesday to discuss his future.
Meanwhile van Persie, who is reportedly keen to stay in London, has praised the spirit shown by Arsenal to finish third after a season which featured a series of low points, including an 8-2 thrashing by Manchester United and an abject 4-0 drubbing by AC Milan in the Champions League.
You are going nowhere, Arsenal to tell Van Persie as crunch talks loom over Dutchman's future
Arsenal will tell Robin van Persie his only option is to stay at the club when they meet for contract talks.
Van Persie, manager Arsene Wenger and chief executive Ivan Gazidis will sit down in a bid to secure the Holland striker’s long-term future.
Arsenal are ready to offer a three-year deal worth £130,000 a week, plus a £5million signing-on fee.
Their biggest fear is that Van Persie will tell them he wants to leave.
However, the club are determined to ensure the 28-year-old stays, despite Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus being ready to bid for him. If pushed, Arsenal will tell him he must see out the final 12 months of his contract.
Alex Song is expected to be offered a new deal, despite the club’s interest in Yann M’Vila.
Arsenal target Shinji Kagawa, the Borussia Dortmund midfielder, is expected to hold talks with Manchester United this week.
Do NOT hold this against me if I'm wrong... but there are wild, speculative Twitter rumors out there saying that "RvP has signed a 4-year contract with Arsenal."
Of course, there are other conflicting rumors saying he will decide after the Euros, and after he sees who else Arsenal signs in the transfer window...
I wanna be an EPL player when I grow up.
I guess he wouldn't let her wear this year's shirt.
Also, she posted that on her own twitter.
If anyone knows where I can find a jersey (authentic, pls) from this season in a large, let me know. Most sites down to XL only.
For whatever reason, soccer jerseys (from Europe/Asia) tend to run a little small. So a L in US sizes could very well be a XL over there.
