Issue 214 of The Gooner from April 2011 looks back at the recent run of games which put pay to Arsenal’s hopes of a quadruple, a treble and a double.
Peter Le Beau contribution tries to lift the mood by recalling disappointing times during the past 50 years which were quickly followed by some of most memorable achievements in Arsenal’s history.
Elsewhere, Simon Rose bemoans today’s Arsenal for their lack of speed, verve, tenacity and leadership whilst urging them to grasp the unexpected chance presented to land the title, while Colin Riggs longs to replicate the away day experience in Ashburton Grove.
Meanwhile, Deb Bunt has been looking back through back issues of The Gooner to see what contributors were saying about the likes of Nelson Vivas, Anthony Stokes, Jason Crowe and David Bentley before Wenger decided they were not good enough for Arsenal. Perhaps he really does know? Or at least better than we do.
Plus much more, including all the regulars: Highbury Spy, Mickey Cannon, Anger Managementwith guest columnist Jens Lehmann (at least it appears to be him), readers letters, another Young Guns profile and In The Away End which this issue visits our Carling Cup conquerors Birmingham City – painful!
