    Merry Christmas and happy Holidays to all my fellow Gooners. Success is not just about trophies its also about how you achieve it and we Gunners are well on the way on all fronts, come on Arsenal 2011 is our time.

    Merry xmas you guys, all the best.

    Football is about trophies.In this respect Wenger comes a distant second to the red faced.
    Finance wise ,Arsenal are top of the table but football fans don’t bother about this. They only care who has won the trophies.

    Seasons greetings to all.

    Rasp the picture is going to get people talking – not an Englishman to he seen?

  8. gunnern5 says:


    It will be an extemely sad day when football is only about trophies. If it were only about trophies then I would have stopped watching in 1968/69 after 16 consecutive trophyless seasons.

    You see if i’d stopped supporting Arsenal then I would have missed out on – 6 league titles, 7 FA Cups, (Including 3 doubles) 2 League Cups, I Cup Winners Cup, I Fairs Cup, I CL Final – Bergkamp, Wright, Henry.

    I could go on and on but believe me mate it’s not all about trophies it’s all about the LOVE of your team!!!!

  9. Pezzer says:

    To the Tottenham Muppet.

    You really are a total Jealous Deluded Fool.

    1/ Outclassed in the 2 games….thats hysterical….you were soooo outclassed at the emirates it was a joke….you scored from DEAD BALL situations….on other words got really lucky.

    2/ King and Harry Redknapp is a total oxymoron…He is a fraud…You are 5th…thats where Martin Jol had u for 2 years and he spent about Β£100mill less.

    3/ If the Carling Cup is soo shit…Whay have spurs won in the last 20 years?….Sorry, whats that?…please do tell me?….o really ?…hahahaha.

    4/ We will possibly lose against Barca and you may beat Milan….but we wont be in Stratford in 3 Years..hahaha

    5/ Keep hoping that we lose before “you win”….Keep praying that in your life time you see Spuds lift the league once as opposed to the 13 times Arsenal have.
    Keep Dreaming you have a stadium like ours, a history like ours, a heritage like ours, Class like us!!!


    In Our shadow 4ever!!!

  10. SharkeySure says:

    Merry Xmas to one and all.

    GN5 – great response to GW. I agree with every word.

    Poor Spud. No further comment.

  11. PestILEnCe says:

    LOL even Ferguson doesn’t consider Spurs as a real threat. You are too proud of your team I’m afraid, I remember a recent season where we managed to beat both United & Chelsea but that didn’t do anything for us, so big whoop if we lose to them again. Yes you managed to beat the CL champions but there is a huge difference about who managed the team, I’ll let your lil’ cranium figure it out. You need another ten years before you win anything Major, and thats if you keep your important players(inc. modric & Bale every1 else sux lol)

  12. Rasp says:

    Morning all,

    I have removed the comment from that idiot totnum fan, but by all means continue to tell him what a cretin he is……

    I have never had much time for them but I have really seen the worst of spud fans since they’ve had a small taste of the success we’ve had over the last decade.

    I am going to relly enjoy shoving it down their throats when they fail to qualify for the CL next season.

    Oh yes, Happy Christmas too πŸ˜†

  13. Rasp says:

    Hi GN5,

    I didn’t consider nationality or religious aspects when I chose the players for the pic – just who had the nicest smile πŸ™‚

  14. ChlseaGunner says:

    Not to mention the real test of success! You havent won anything in the last x donkey years. Merry xmas

  15. Mayank says:

    Season’s greetings all… Keep up the good work, a unique blog and comments section if there ever was one.

  16. Rasp says:

    Thanks Mayank,

    A Merry Christmas to you and yours too, you’re always welcome on AA.

  17. greg says:

    first, I wish you A merry christmas to all gooners around.

    Then, indeed, those who thinks Arsenal’s season is done yet I say: YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING.

    As far as I know we are far from done and will surely be better as all our injured players (not vermaelen) are back, Fabregas on form, Nasri on form, Arshavin on form and RvP on form, comon, probably the best attacking team in EPL this season.


  18. kelsey says:

    A very Merry Xmas to you all, and to Rasp and peaches for getting this site going.I am the “behind the scenes” editor these days πŸ˜‰

  19. Arsenal Norway says:

    That’s the spirit!!!!!

  20. GhostFace says:

    Merry Christmas Guys,

    Dont comment much but read the blog every now and then.

    Here’s wishing you guys a wonderful time during the holiday season and keep up the good work on the blog.

  21. rico says:

    Hello AA (not that i have a drink problem, nor has my car broken down πŸ˜‰ )

    Merry Christmas to you all…..

  22. Rasp says:

    Hi rico,

    Thanks and a Merry Christmas to you and congrats on the success of HH πŸ˜›

  23. Rasp says:

    Hi GF,

    Merry Christmas. I wish you’d come on more, you know we will always publish anything you have to say.

  24. goonermichael says:

    Merry Christmas everyone. I’m already pissed and The goose smells fantastic happy days.

    I posted on the wrong post so here you are.

  25. rico says:

    Thanks Rasp, that means a lot to me πŸ™‚

  26. Arne says:

    Marry xmas. Agree with You. I wonder whether the moaners would xchange our position with a fa cup throphy from 2008 along with fucked up finances.

  27. rvpgunners says:

    Football club like Arsenal is all about trophies and winning against big team. Then what do you expect, making 56 miilions profit from fans?
    The nick name “Big Four” is not said for the fun of it. Start winning Arsene or pack up and leave next year.

  28. Alan says:

    Complete rubbish.

    Zero debt? Stay away from my accounts.

    Last 16 in the CL? Finished second to play who?

    Still in carling? Yeah lets all gloat about the trophy we all labelled mickey mouse when spurs beat us.

    Second in league? But again lost to the top 2.

    Yet to play in FA Cup? This one takes the biscuit.

  29. RockyLives says:

    Merry Christmas to all the regular (and occasional) readers here on AA, to the regular (and occasional) bloggers and to all the regular (and occasional) comment posters.

    Great seasonal pic and post Rasp: well done to you, Peaches and the rest for running such an excellent site.

    And to Alan (or should I say Scrooge) as it’s Christmas I’ll simply say this: Thankyou for the gift of your opinion.

    But can I suggest that when you’re thinking of new year resolutions, try this one: “I must not be such a short-termist, perspective-lacking, pot-hunting, misery-loving misanthrope.”

  30. Gunnertotheborn says:

    Happy holidays to all gunners around the globe.this blog is amazing and keep it up hope more blogging of our beloved arsenal.Cheers from cold Norway.

  31. Rasp says:


    We have zero debt in comparative terms having paid of all the loans to build the Emirates. We now have a manageable mortgage and still more revenue to come from the sale of flats at the Highbury development. Our financial situation is the most healthy of any team in the Premiership.

    How will you feel if we win the league this year? – peeved because your predictions were proved incorrrect? I think not.

  32. RockyLives says:

    Gttb – Merry Christmas to you too. It’s nice to know we have some Norwegian representation here too. Denmark is well represented, as well as Canada, USA, Australia, China, Thailand and many others…

  33. Mannix_4_Nasri says:

    Merry,Merry X-mass to all Gooners funs & splendid,splendid successful 2011. May the Almighty God help The Gunners this season with atleast two trophies. Wish u all the best n make sure u beat the weak Chelsea,with or without Drogba.Amiiieen

  34. Well, it’s great to be a supporter of a great team like Arsenal. I love long-term planning. Abramovich and Chelsea raised the stakes so high that teophies became a highest bidder’s affair. Ferguson’s ManU and Benitez’s Liverpool tried to ‘buy’ as well as Chelsea. We know the history. Liverpool are out of CL and no signs of a quick return. ManU are clutching on mere finger nails, piling up debts all in name of trophy-full cabinet. Thank God for His blessings of keeping an astute man of foresight in Arsenal during these mad days. Long live Arsene and real fans of this Great Club! And, ofcourse, Merry Xmas

  35. High-tech says:

    Its a shame those tinies think they can be compared to ARSenal

  36. Skilj says:

    Merry Christmas fellow gunners! May you have a nice & happy time

  37. Buzz3210(Gooner4Life) says:

    Just to say Happy Xmas all gooners keep the faith and believe

  38. […] Arsenal, not successful? …. you gotta laugh Second in the league Semi final of the Carling Cup Through to the last 16 of the Champions League Yet to play in […] […]

  39. Ashton says:

    Best! We just got to push that success to happen in april, where we normally loose it!

  40. joshua says:

    Merry Christmas to Gooners everywhere. Keep the faith and here’s to a great result tomorrow.

  41. The BearMan says:

    Great Club which is well run;
    Team with the youngest players when on form has the potential of beating any current team in the world;
    Very passionate fans, that does not follow the status Coe, but has the freedom to express themselves;
    Most forward thinking Manager currently;
    Most exciting football, played at the highest level;
    ARSENAl is building for the future;

    In the good times and in the past lean periods ARSENAL is the TEAM the Bear pledged his support to.

    The Emirates is being recognised as the home of Football!

    Seasons greetings all Arsenal fans we have been spoilt, no wonder we keep on begging for MORE! Keep your Courage in 2011.

    Still reckon that the chavs are going to get a belting.

  43. MickyDidIt89 says:

    Just made it in the nick of time on the Christmas Day Post.
    Very Happy Christmas to you all.
    Feeling a little Sprouted.

  44. goonerwife says:

    Merry xmas guys. This blog has been really great this year.

    And please ignore all the haters. They are irrelevant.

  45. Rasp says:

    Thanks goonerwife,

    A Merry Christmas to you too – is there any chance we could tempt you to write a post for us one day?

  46. Rasp says:

    New post…….

  47. Mr -K- says:

    What a piece of shit. I’m an arsenal fan, and I dont wanna hear this utter tard coming from staunch wenger fanboi’s excusing the lack of progress from this team and the lack of trophies.. it’s not terminal by any stretch.. but to say it’s not a major problem that Arsenal arent winning trophies.. is to say that Arsenal are not a major team.

    And if you think that.. then you can kiss my trophy chasing ass. Whats the point of having all this revenue if you dont actually spend it on buying players.. You can talk about Barcelona and academy all you want – they still have the common damn sense to buy talent that will transform their side from nearly men to champions..

    Who the hell do all these youngsters have to learn from? Cesc? He hasnt won shat in an Arsenal shirt for them learn from.. and his heart doesnt seem to be in it either.
