    Dejavu ! WTF Arsenal cant defend and Sczecney is proving to be false gold ..Those goals and the goals against Norwich proving that Sczecney has a long way to become a world class keeper .. the Arsenal midfield going awol .. Song not interested to defend ..and too slow..Arsenal need to score at least 2 goals for a comfortable cushion ..WBA will score again .!

  • mofaz

    Thank goodness someone got the sense to shoot ..Arsenal needs goals not pretty passing in and around the box ..come on Santos shoot again..

  • budski

    LOL what an end… almost as if the city match was rigged for maximum thrill hahaha.. well nasri can have his trophy but one thing for sure their win is not because of his performance. aguero is one hell of a striker. so in conclusion, Manchester bleeds blue, but London bleeds RED! coyg! see you all next season folks should be an interesting one i’m out

    Arsenal in CL… Ex-Arsenal wins PL… unhappy abt Nasri being part of the CL team… Happy for toure and clichy… We r above Tottenham, Wilshire wins bet… Hope all Tottenham fans pay up like they promised…

    *Nasri being part of PL winners…

  • Leigh

    Cant believe we have done it. Look at few weeks back we were NOWHERE, and I already accepted the fact that Spurs are finishing above us. Now doing it the hard way as usual, but we finish 3rd, we are the best of the rest. Well done arsenal in CL again for the 15th Time in a row ?

  • need to win

    Man City won the league!
    boo hoo….
    didn’t care.

    Arsenal going to take the trophy awy from them next season

  • need to win

    as usual, still hoping….

  • mofaz

    We were lucky .. Fulop fu.k up twice to gift arsenal 3rd place. We were very poor defensively it seemed we never learn from pass mistakes. We were leading yet gave away the ball in attack ..why dont just waste some time by taking the ball to the corner flag or something ..Lucky Gibb made that block or else we’re 4th..

    Joey Barton is a thug disguised as a footballer . The way he punched Aguero, if that happened else where he’d be locked up . Hope QPR sack him ..

  • fras

    Any chance of uploading the post game celebrations?

  • MED

    Vermaelen is such a liability he’s cost us in so many games this season, he’s been directly at fault for about 10 goals in the pl for us. Where was he for the 2nd goal?! Always caught up field and out of position. he’s goal scoring covers up his mistakes, we’d be deluded if we think we’ll win the epl next season with him playing in the first team. We also have a non-existent midfield, get M’Vila in now!

  • Koolio

    Mofaz you fucking idiot, szczesney is injured, thats why hes so shit, have some fucking respect for your team. false gooner.

  • Arsenal#1

    Thanks for providing highlights for another great season. Your’e the best arsenalist. Enjoy your summer.

  • Jellykid

    The first goal was offside but the second goal came easily because of the midfield not being able to boss forward. You can tell why arsenal where caught on counters from the midfield consecutively. Its not he CB’s fault. Its more of the way we handled our possesion in the midfield.

    We did look shaky at times, but honestly WE ALL KNOW if Arteta was on the field we would have bosses West brom EASILY and that midfield problem wouldn’t have happened.

  • Jellykid

    If chelsea win the champions league, its going to be too funny for the Spuds LOL…. All that talk about being above Arsenal, yet they still can’t literally finish the season above them hahaha…. So trash. Stupid Cunt VDV is probably going to settle for midtable next season with the APE going to another team and with Golem lurking away as well.

  • Dragojlo

    Mate, I would like to thank you for doing this great job, and running this great blog.

    Keep it that way, you make this world a better place!!!

    Go Arsenal, go arsenalist.com !!!

    Greetings from Serbia.

  • Henry

    ^Agreed, thank you Arsenalist you’re a real credit for us!

    In regards to this game, i think we stumbled over the line. Barely ahead of Spurs and the Toons, but we got what we needed :) Now to kick up our feet and watch Euro 2012 with an intriguing eye on the stars on show. (It’s better we buy now actually before they over-inflate the stars there, like Ozil did)

    I’m a Les Bleus fan, so once again i’m reunited with Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri alongside Koscienly(hopefully) and possibly Diaby.

    What an end to the english premier league though, quite possibly the most dramatic in my young memory. Watching us send out a team in stitches against United, the thunderous strikes of Van Persie, the understated keeping heroics of Szczesny, the return of the King and his goals(watching my personal hero do that is going to stay with me for years!), the comebacks against Tottenham and Chelsea, the mauling of Blackburn… That was just OUR season too.

    And now with Podolski and hopefully a few other transfer buys coming in, the return of Wilshere + recovery of our squad….I hope 2012-13 will be ours!!!

  • DKX99

    I don’t understand why arsenal fans want Chelsea to win the Champions league. To have dominated Spurs the way Arsenal has is incredible, but I think Arsenal should move onto creating rivalries with Chelsea and reigniting their Man U rivalry. It is rather ironic that a big club like Arsenal points to its dominance over ‘small’ club Tottenham in order to show its prowess. It is time we establish ourselves as the best club in London and not just its northern region.

    Plus I don’t want thugs and vanity princesses like Terry and Abrahamovich lifting the Champions league. All Arsenal fans should get behind Bayern for the sake of football.

  • Mofaz

    Koolio..you’re the fuckin idiot ..Scezney is good but not great and ur an idiot if you think arsenal’s don’t need a world class stopper..

  • Koolio

    Did i ever say hes world class. What difference does it make if we have a world class, and a very good keeper if our defense is shit. The fact that Arsenalist Match Analyser is completely trashing the keeper that apparently was being injected for a shoulder injury is pathetic. Fickle Fake Gooner.

  • http://arsenalist.com gooner

    FUCK YOU @MED BLAMING VERMINATOR FOR GOALS WE CONCEDED
    DID YOU EVEN WATCH THE MATCH? VERMELEAN MADE MANY GREAT TACKLES
    I BET IF YOU WERE TO PLAY IN HIS POSITION,OTHER TEAMS WOULD BE SCORING LIKE 5 GOALS AND IN THE END OF THE MATCH, THE STATS WILL SHOW THAT YOU HAVE MADE ZERO SUCESSFUL TACKLES

  • http://arsenalist.com gooner

    BY THE WAY GUYS, SZENY IS THE BEST GOAL KEEPER WE HAD IN ABOUT 3 YEARS

    HE MIGHT BE BAD SOMETIMES, MOST OF THE TIME HE IS CONSISTENT

  • Tieneich

    THANK YOU ALL.
    What a season. What a season it was….

  • Clinton Dawkins

    Chesney continues to second-guess decision-making. What to do? And whom should we thank for the Ben Foster injury?

  • Clinton Dawkins

    Benayoun, of course, deserved the goal after chasing the ball.

  • Clinton Dawkins

    Thank you Arsenalist. And no one’s mentioned that Bolton have gone down.

  • Jellykid

    @Mofaz!…. SHUTUP!!…. back your words before you say something!! I love our curretn GK and we don’t need a world class keeper!!

    @DXK99

    I agree with you but you forgot the fact Chelsea knew they couldn’t beat us! We beat chelsea first game this season and second game they wanted to settle for a draw knowing our current form. We beat Man City the second game where we should scored like 5 goals! We Established ourselves alright in the top!!

  • PV4

    What a finish! Hope we do way better next season and win something. And thanks Arsenlaist, while other blogs do analyse and report, I know there is one place where I can always catch up on the highlights and goals. Thanks dude.

  • http://dgcatutorials.blogspot.com mobeen

    Thanks Arsene… Thanks Arsenal… Thanks Arsenalist… It has been nerve wrecking… it has been pain, doubt, strength, courage, drama, triumph, ecstasy, fear and belief… It has truely been epic… in the words of vincent company “please not like this…” Next season we wanna dominate… COYG… We are the best club in the best league in the world, lets show that we are worthy fans… COYG… COYG…

  • grumpyoddman

    Full credit to Arsenalist. Keep up the great work!

  • Arschloch

    Mofaz is not to blame. He just has to grow up. Hope he will get better next season :-) . Hopefully Wenger will sign a world class CB and M´Villa. We all know who have to leave. Thank you Arsenalist! Thank you all true gunners! So long !!

  • Gaiman

    @Mobeen Haha. Kompany: “You want to say it’s the best moment of your life, after the birth of my child and my wedding, but please never again this way, please.”

  • Sufian

    Did not Wenger say Szczesny had some sort of injury and had to take injections/medicines to play? I think it has been the right decision, even at his worst he has been reliable than Almunia :P
    I wish Wenger to let go of Fabianski (a quality GK but needs games which he can’t at the moment) and Almunia (end of his Arsenal career). Our second choice which we can rely at is surely Mannone. He needs game to stay, and every time he plays, he does good job. I would hate him to leave, and hope Wenger feels the same.

  • Ofebs

    If City comes for RVP at 50million pounds, we sell. The money can then be used to plug holes in the squad. If Adebayor can net above 20goals at Arsenal, Podolski is smarter, he will do better.

    I am not afraid of RVP leaving. No player leaving us can have as much shock as Cesc + Nasri leaving at same time. Arsene has shown that anyone can leave and he will still build an exciting squad.

    BYE PAT RICE AND GREAT JOB BENEYOUN
    I HOPE BENEYOUN STAYS AT ARSENAL HE TRIES HARD AND IS A GENTLEMAN

    Arsenalist! Thanks a lot for the last few seasons’ videos!

    Please re-upload the MOTD highlights somewhere. They’ve been taken down.

    Much gratitude,
    from a Delhi gunner :)

  • BigDave

    Once again, the press have given no credit to Arsenal, blaming our good fortune on a poor goalkeeping display by Fulop. We’ve had a few go against us due to incredible goalkeeping displays on occasion. I also think that putting the blame on Fulop let’s some of his defenders off. He hadn’t played first team football all season, and was bound to be nervous, particularly in the early stages. So the defenders let the ball run

  • BigDave

    …through to the keeper with Benayoun in close attendance, and didn’t deal with it. They were caught in possession for Santos’s goal which was fizzed hard and low and Fulop did well to touch it. For the third goal, as he went to punch the ball he was whacked from behind by his own player. The point is that the whole defence were complicit in all 3 of our goals, and defensive errors can happen when you attack – most goals come that way. So why put it down to luck?

  • http://arsenalist.com gooner

    well said @bigdave

  • Ofebs

    the english press see their anti-arsenal agenda as a patriotic duty, they can’t allow this french man bask in glory that is his due.

    on bbc we see front page report of SAF and Giggs as greatest in the premier league in the last 20years, but you will have to look hard to see that Arsenal got greatest team in the last 20years…

    Fuck to you too Gooner ..

    AND SPURS DO NOT GET CL NEXT SEASON, MIND THE GAP HARRY TROTTER !!

  • CHELSEA

    MIND THE GAP GUNNERS, WE WON THE CL, WE ARE THE PROUD OF LONDON. WE ARE EUROPEAN CHAMPIONS, HAHAHA ARSENAL WILL BE WINNING 3RD PLACE, DON’T WORRY.

  • http://arsenalist.com gooner

    SHUT UP @CHELSEA, THIS SITE FOR GOONERS AND IF YOU COME HERE, YOU ARE A GOONER SO YOU BETTER SHUT YOUR MOUTH

  • http://arsenalist.com gooner

    although i am not a chelsea fan, i was rooting for them at the final
    glad spuds is out of CL
    MIND THE GAP SPUDS HAHAHAHAH

    in november spuds thought they could win the title and now look at them
    not even in the champions league and lost 32 million dollars because of that

    every london teams are above you spuds!!!!!
    always in the shadow of arsenal!!!

  • Gunner

    Chelsea won what a bad day. hope Wenger do something.this year squad was absolutely rubbish,but they had a good lack, that chelsea and liverpool were shit and spuds messed up in the last 10 games. i expect a busy summer, if not i would be more than happy to see RVP leave, were he can win something. tonight we saw chelsea winning a throphy, and they won the doubble not a long a go, if you are an ARSENAL fan and see chelsea win it , then you must be the fake Arsenal fan.
    chelsea made history and they became officially the best London club. they will be the best until we win the CL. to do so, we must change the board.
    FFP is a joke, how do you people celebrate when Arsenal is going back wards, i am guted, may God open the eyes of our clown board and manager.

  • dave

    @Gunner, you for real ? You would rather Spurs be in CL after all the gip they have given us this season, and for the smile not to be wiped clean off of their faces ?

    As for fake Arsenal fans who wanted Chelsea to win, so Jack Wilshire is a fake Arseanl fan ? (see his twitter) Not ideal but its the lesser of the two evils

  • Gunner

    @dave, i understand that the feeling spurs will be pplaying europa league, but i am not happy to see chelsea winning CL, they won it but we didn’t. i got a lot of chelsea fc fans, they all laughed at me, it is clear that Arsenal will never win this throphy even in the next 10 years, they got 0 ambition and i can’t see wenger buying class players, i can’t see us win the league nor the FA cup next season, may be we can win the league cup but it is even not sure. this board we have are rubbish and Arsenal will not win a thing until they change their mind.
    wilshere was with chelsea last night but do you heard what ashly cole said, he said that he went to chelsea to win trophy and that he got it. Nasri even won the title. I hope rvp will not sign for us and i want to see Arsenal spending,on jan vertanghon, m’villa, kagawa and 1 good striker may be doumbia.
    do you saw mata this season, he proved it that he worth 20mil, chaill has been exelent. what do you feel when you saw them in blue, they could have been our players if it wasn’t for Arsenal board silly phsolophy.
    wenger is a clown , mr silent another clown and so are the rest who support them week in week out. weak up now, if we fail to be 4th next year then we will need to spend big to challenge, like Liverpool are doing, if not Arsenal will have the same history as Blackburn and Newcastle.
