There's nothing harder on football fans than a "what if...".

Highs and lows elicit any emotion you’d care to mention, but they’re all matter of fact. They go into the record books, and in 100 years time they’ll still be there, completely unchanged, for you happily or therapeutically reminisce over. But the near-misses, they come only with a thick fog of interpretation that means they’ll be debated for as long as arguing in pubs is considered a valid use of one’s time. All without an definitive answer ever being found.

10 Players Who Did Nothing At Arsenal (But Excelled For Their Country)

Worthless at Arsenal; heroes on the international front.

There have been a plethora of footballers who have simply failed to impress at Arsenal. Whether they have simply done nothing in training to warrant game-time for the first-team or they consistently fluff the chances they do get in the starting XI, it’s fair to say that Arsene Wenger has had his fair share of duds over the years.

Is 4th place once again the best Wenger can hope for?

After witnessing their side’s mediocre start to the season, Arsenal fans have probably never been more relieved to find the campaign halted by an international break. Defeat at Swansea in their most recent outing offered a stark reminder of the team’s failings so far this season; players were profligate in front of goal and they saw their slender lead dissipate to nothing, yet again, due to shoddy defending.

The work from the master of unpredictability...

There seems to be a common perception that Arsene Wenger is something of a genius in the transfer market. While he has discovered some gems and delivered them to north London for pittance, the right word to describe his business in the transfer world would be ‘unpredictable’. Having to juggle the responsibilities of sustaining a title challenge with a financially-troubled club – plagued for years by the debts amassed from the creation of the Emirates Stadium in 2006 – while attempting to attract some of the continent’s finest players is certainly no mean feat.

5 Greatest Ever Title-Winning Premier League Sides

The very best of the very best.

The Premier League has been fantastic since it began in 1992: it’s a money-spinning, fan-dazzling premium competition to end them all, and it is rightly considered the best league in the world. Although older generations may like to claim that it’s ‘not the same as the old days’, the quality, entertainment and passion seen over the last 22 years has been unrivalled in the eyes of many. It’s easy to romanticise the past, but was it really that great?

"Don't worry, it's only Ray Parlour".

Thierry Henry, Robert Pires, Dennis Bergkamp, Ian Wright. Names that just roll off the tongue, oozing class, silk and flair that have illuminated north London for the last number of years. Bringing Gunners supporters to their feet with breath-taking pieces of skill and jaw-dropping goals, it’s players like these which have gained Arsene Wenger’s men worldwide recognition for playing some of the most fluid and attractive football on the continent.

Those who managed to thrive under no expectations.

All Gooners want is a little electricity, a smidgeon of unpredictability and a dash of je ne sais quoi. They want to see their valiant warriors fight for the cause, treating the crest like a badge of honour, as they lack horns with their opponent in a do-or-die battle for 90 minutes. Sick of having their hearts ripped from their chest by the latest ‘golden boy’ hopping to the next money-laden city – lately, it always seems to be Manchester – it’s fair to say that Arsenal supporters have been stung by certain fan favourites in recent history.

Will it be Welbeck or Sanogo?

When it was announced that Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud would be out until 2015 with an injury sustained against Everton; Gooners from all corners of the globe began either turning to God, tried positive thinking, wrote letters or began Googling the Good Samaritans helpline – all of these actions would’ve been born out of the realisation that Yaya Sanogo was going to being Arsenal’s main man in front of goal for the next four months.

Here are Arsenal's five biggest fails on transfer deadline day.

Arsenal reverted to type on transfer deadline day. After spending £42.5 million on Mesut Ozil a year ago and £35 million on Alexis Sanchez earlier this summer, manager Arsene Wenger put his chequebook away and stuck to his usual policy of financial stringency. That’s despite the fact his club clearly needed a new striker before tonight’s 11pm transfer cut-off point.

Arsene Wenger asking City to do him a defensive favour.

Having already been snubbed in his attempt to bring Radamel Falcao to the Emirates, Arsene Wenger is no closer to getting the striker he needs to bring in to cover the injury to Olivier Giroud. But he might well be a step closer to bringing in equally much needed defensive reinforcements, as he battles Everton for the loan of Man City’s Matija Nastasic.
