Issue 2109 of The Gooner from December 2010.
Samir Nasri has been in sparkling form this season and combined with the popularity of his new song, was an easy choice to be our cover star. We’re hoping that his two goals against Fulham on the day the issue was released is a sign that the Gooner cover jinx has finally been laid to rest!
Another player to have caught the eye this season is Jack Wilshere and we have a two page article by Simon Rose in which he dubs our young star the “little Brady” or, to follow the Brazilian format, Bradinho.
The fall-out from the home defeat by Spurs continues with one contributor urging Arsenal to respond to what he believes is a real and credible threat to our North London domination.
There’s an article attacking UEFA’s blue riband competition, the Champions League, a piece wondering whether we might benefit from the revival of the French national side and a fond look back at some Robert Pires memories now that he’s back in the Premier league with Villa.
Plus all the regulars including Highbury Spy (returning after a one month break), Mickey Cannon, Anger Management, readers letters and In The Away End which this issue listens to the thoughts of Newcastle fans.
