Even though the headline might suggest it this is not going to be a blog about the club lacking ambition. Far from, rather more the opposite in fact. The suggestiveness of the headline was very much deliberate and serves to make you, at this point, consider the irony surrounding the debate about the clubs lack of ambition. This summer the club has shown more ambition than they have in a long long time, they have pursued world class targets and put in bids three times higher than our record fee. Instead it's now the fans who seem to lack the ambition for the club to succeed. It's the fans who wavers at the risk of losing out on targets. It's the fans who would settle for lesser players.

I was a London boy. I wanted to go to Highbury. I wanted to be a part of the whole setup at The Arsenal. It was straight out of a Roy of the Rovers comic.
I believe he was the greatest Arsenal left back ever.
In a summer where a player with less Champions League experience and goals than Nicklas Bendnter is being touted to Real Madrid for the price it would cost to build and run ten children's hospitals, and a Uruguayan on £80,000 a week has complained of being unfairly treated, it is perhaps better that we concentrate on a genuine hero who has fallen on hard times.
It was with sadness but not altogether shock that an ex Crystal Palace left back spoke distressingly of financial and emotional problems this month. No not Ashley Cole, a Selhurst loanee and Junior Gunner who once nearly crashed his car in shock and disgust when being informed Arsenal offered him a new contract worth fifty-five thousand pounds a week. No, perish the thought. I am referring to an unpretentious and authentic Gunners champion and legend: Kenny Sansom.
According to a recent Sky Sports story, Theo Walcott hopes to see Arsenal instill a "fear factor" in their opponents, specifically when playing at the Emirates. My initial reaction was to think that said fear factor should come more from facing the players wearing the Arsenal shirt than playing at the Emirates, but I think we can all agree that a strong, intimidating home stadium is a big advantage. Being a numbers person, I decided to see if the numbers said anything about whether or not Arsenal benefit from having being at home when they play at the Emirates.
