No History – Ever present in the top division since 1919 when they cheated their way up from division 2 finishing 5th, won f*ck all until they poached Herbie Chapman from Huddersfield, then 13 titles (1931 – 2004), though the swinging sixties passed them by as they won nothing in that decade, 12 FA Cups (1930 – 2015, last pot, 3-0 up v Villa who were denied 2 stonewall penalties) , 2 League Cups (1987 and 1993), UEFA Cup 1993/94, Inter City Cup 1969/70. Massive investment in the 1980’s, moved from Highbury to The Emirates in 2006.

At The Emirates in December Walcott (33) put them ahead and Giroud made it 2 just on half time. It took us until the 82nd minute before Yaya pulled one back but we couldn’t find an equaliser. Crowd was 60, 053 with 2,939 Blues.

Our form at home v Arsenal - At The Etihad in January 2015 it was a 2-0 loss. They went ahead through Cazorla (24 dubious pen), and Giroud (67) finished us off. Crowd was 45, 596 with 2,617 Gooners.
Our form at home to Arsenal - We had no prem lg wins until 07, since then we’ve had 4 wins 3 losses and 1 draw ie LWDWLWWLW
Comment - They ‘ve had the finger on us in the last two meetings, with Welbeck, Walcott, Ozil (his eyes are offside according to Bournemouth fans!) Sanchez and co., but time for a change today. They always look like the real deal, but like us injuries have taken their toll, plus Wilshire’s antics off the field haven’t helped, and they‘ve had a few slip ups. They’ve faded away as usual, knives are out for Wenger, but are still in contention, and any result will be a bonus.
