Unlike you, I won't be here next season as I'm leaving for good on a HIGH.......... CHAMPIONS GOONER!
There comes a time when you've got to move on, that time has arrived for me with the team delivering a MAJOR TROPHY.
My mission on this board has now been ACCOMPLISHED, Rikki.
I’ve enjoyed every single minute posting on here, and it’s been a pleasure to converse with the myriad of posters, past and present..

Yes, Arsenal had ONE more trophy than your pathetic lot won in 2013/14 season.
In football, you're as good as your last season, Rikki, unless you're Liverpool fans who just go on about their history and never look forward.
FACT: ManUseless are now a DECLINING MEDIOCRE team and need a massive injection of cash for them to compete again going forward, and would struggle to attract the sort of QUALITY signings they needed to compete with the TOP 4 sides without the offer of CHAMPIONS LEAGUE footie.

.......736 Clubs have fallen by the wayside (including ManUseless were humilaited by The Swans in their backyard) leaving the eventual DESERVED WINNERS........THE ARSENAL......
Thing is Liverpool's squad are superior to your mediocre lot as proved once and for all by the 0-3 spanking the latter handed to your midtable fodder at the theatre of mediocrity, Rikki. And, moreover, ManUseless need at least 9 new signings in order to compete with Spud and Everton for next season's 5th spot finish. I'm pretty sure Spud and Everton, your team's nearest rivals, would strengthen their squad in the closed season making it difficult to get the Europa League spot ManUseless failed to get this season.

This is the day that has kept me posting on here until now before exiting on a high. The day our boys finally get to answer the critics /doubters with an emphatic spotless display. Enjoy the Wembley showpiece and the rest of your weekend lads.
Anyone on here going to the Islington parade After Show on Sunday?
"I understand Chris lives in Cheltenham....and apart from knowing (or at least being told) he is black, I wouldn't know if I had bumped into him."
My bad, John.
Bumped into your mate Christine in Gloucester city centre lately, John?
For some weird reasons, the cowardly #$%$ has avoided this board like the plague since his pathetic mediocre side lost their first game of the season.
We could be in for a little nice surprise from Wenger this summer. Loic Remy was in attendance at the Emirates stadium today to watch the home win against WBA. He would add to our attacking prowess pace-wise without a doubt if we manage to sign him.
Wenger made a valid point, Gov. But I hope Arsenal would manage to find a way to bypass all the bureaucratic red-tape involved in player signings this summer. With demanding CL qualifying matches sandwiched between league games at the start of the season to play, we simply can't afford to be doing our business right up to the close of the transfer window if we want to succeed and give ourselves more than a fighting chance next season. I hope lessons have been learned from past transfer windows failures and our inability to close deals in earnest .
"Why don't you just admit you don't like Indians"?
That's a bit rich coming from a loud-mouthed, opinionated bigot who referred to the same people as "smelly Indians''.
You're a hypocrite Rikki. Indian people don't need a racist like you fighting for them.
Rikki, it seems to me that your Blue nose lot are buckling under the pressure of fighting for a CL place as they fall to yet another damaging defeat at St Marys.
TWO comical own goals shipped, lol@rikki.
........... to sacking.
''Sean Bones (Vice-chairman of the Manchester United Supporters Trust): It's a PR shambles. Manchester United's history shows they deal with things with class and dignity but that has not been the case here. The story leaked before David Moyes has been spoken to, and that's not the Manchester United way. There was no dignity or class in the way they went about it."
I wonder what Rikki made of the classless and disgraceful way Man U dealt with an honest and respectable manager like Moyes.
Blaise Matuidi, 27, fits the bill and tick all the criteria mentioned in your post, Govinda (imo). Speedy, good tackler, has great engine and dominant in the centre of the park in the games I've seen him played this season. He's also a good passer of the ball and won't have too much difficult adapting to our style of play. PSG nearly let him go for free last summer but he has become an important player for them this season hence recently rewarded with a 4 year contract extension. I think the lure of Premier League football at a club like Arsenal will be tempting for him but I'm not sure if PSG would allow him to leave without a fight and Arsenal don't have the financial muscle to pull it off.
Judging by the calibre of players being linked to us presently, I think you may be right to be fearful of a re-run of previous transfer window failings. I hope Wenger has learned his lessons from previous transfer window headaches and would be more proactive this summer. We can keep doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome. I'm sure even a smart guy like Wenger would've known by now that leaving things until the very last minutes aren't in the best interest of AFC. As things stand, Arsenal have two CL qualifying games to play at the start of the new season, 2 more games than the rest. Hopefully Wenger would have done majority of his business in pre-season.
Apparently, we are looking to spend our £70m warchest this summer on Tom Cleverley, Chris Smalling, Chambers (the Southampton RB to replace contract rebel Sagna), Drmic (Leverkusen's young striker as a backup for Giroud), and if we are lucky and still have money left, we could go for Mario Manzuckic as our leading striker if Bayern are interested in selling.
Cleverley, Smalling, Chambers, et al? Exciting times ahead, eh Gooners!
I pray to God that none of the above is true with the exception of Manzuckic's link and the journos are just taking the pizza out of Arsenal fans in order to increase their circulation.

In their attempt to break their Premier League title duck. Whilst teams like Arsenal, Man City, and Chelsea have had nothing but rotten luck with injuries to key personnel
Petr Cech was substituted with a suspected dislocated shoulder against Atletico Madrid, John Terry rolled his ankle, both players along with Edin Hazard are almost certain to miss the crucial league tie at Anfield on Sunday. Meanwhile, Liverpool would be well rested before Sunday thanks to their customary 7-8 days rest time between games all season long. City's David Silva picked up an injury on Monday night having played too many games in a short period.
All the league leaders in other top 5 European leagues have had to joggle European football with their domestic campaigns, meaning they are on top of their leagues on merit, don't get me started on the dubious peno awarded to Liverpool this season when the going gets tough for them in games, while teams like Arsenal are consistently denied stonewallers as we saw against Hull on Sunday. Would Liverpool have been as high up the table as they are currently if they have the same difficult schedules as their opponents?
" we'll be back"
What a fanciful comment!
Talk about being delusional, Rikk.
The TOP 4 (Liverpool, Arsenal, Man City and Chelsea) will all strengthen their squad in the summer with CL quality signings.
There's NO WAY BACK from your side's MEDIOCRITY.
