In an interview back in March 2013, with Sky Sports News, Carlos admitted that there is a clause in his current Real Sociedad contract which allows Arsenal first choice option to buy him. In that conversation, Vela went on to say, “I’m happy and I want to stay here”. Since March, Arsenal has continued their fine form, leading the Premier League as well their Champions League group, with a great chance to progress into the knock out stages. Despite this, certain supposed sources throughout Spain claim that he still wouldn’t be interested on a return if Arsenal were to activate the clause. I for one couldn’t care less, and neither should you as I shall quickly explain.

I have made a rather interesting observation. Many supporters groups have been complaining about the club not learning from their mistakes, that they keep trying to do the same thing over and over despite limited success. This is of course to some extent true. However, the supports groups are just as guilty of lack of pragmatism as the board is. They have their marches, they write their letters, they complain at the AGMs and Q&As, but what have they achieved that is of any significance? If they want any real change they need to realize that the board holds all the cards, they need to start playing by their rules, presenting their messages in ways that appeal to the board or nothing will happen. It’s time you learnt from your mistakes.
Confidence is a preference for the habitual voyeur of what is known as Arsenal.
In recent seasons sitting through a game has been a torturous hobby. With little faith in the merits of our ‘attack is the best form of defence’ philosophy, watching a match became an almost masochistic pursuit. The only pleasure I could derive from Eboue conceding a late penalty was that ‘I’d said all along that he was a liability’.
I am a Jewish Arsenal fan, a season ticket holder who goes to home games and, pre-fatherhood, also went to a number of away games. Being a North Londoner of Jewish persuasion, my friends are split about 60/40 in favour of the 1-1 at Newcastle's from up the road. My Spurs friends would readily refer to themselves as the Yids and part of the Yid Army (one can assume they are not voicing their support for the Israeli Defence Forces). But of course the term's usage extends far beyond the club's Jewish supporters. It's rife amongst the whole demographic of Spurs fans. The term is a self-styled moniker that we are told was borne out of oppression, prejudice and, ultimately, resilience.
