Sentiment aside, momentum is still needed against West Ham

Today is the first time we'll hear from Arsene Wenger properly since the announcement was made on Friday about his exit but, in true Wenger style, I suspect he will want to dwell little on that and more on the game today. So I'll follow suit after this opening few words. But I do think [...]

The end and the beginning – Arsene and Arsenal

I don't even know where to start this morning. We've all now read the news, listened to the press con terence, seen the outpouring of wonderful words about Arsene Wenger, but when it comes to actually sitting down and compiling some thoughts now that he has announced he is leaving the club in the summer,I [...]

Arsène Wenger: Die the hero or live the villain?

As Bjork so famously once said: It's oh so quiet...it's oh so still... There's nowt on out to shout about that's for sure. No "we must respond", no "learn our lessons", no reported deep and meaningful team 'heart-to-heart's. Just radio silence. I don't necessarily mind that though. I think everyone associated with Arsenal is just [...]

Permutations show how far Arsenal have fallen

It's that time of the year where football fans start to become mathematicians, as they try to calculate the various permutations that could befall their football team. How many points to be assured of safety? How many points to get in to the playoff places? How close are we to the Europa League spots? What [...]

Formation flip-flopping and transfer plan confusion at Arsenal

I'd like to tell you that I'm still reeling from Sunday's performance but much like our domestic season, it all feels a little pointless and actually, it wouldn't be true, because I just feel resigned when I think about Arsenal this season in the league. People have stopped talking to me about Arsenal specifically at [...]

Flat in Newcastle as Arsenal underperform again

Arsenal fail to pick up another point in an away game in 2018. It’s getting boring now.

Newcastle away with a distinct lack of nerves

Match preview ahead of Arsenal’s trip to Newcastle in the Premier League, April 2018, in which I don’t feel massively nervous for a change. Which is nice.

Atletico over two legs isn’t ideal

Well we now know what we have to overcome in the semi final of the Europa League if we want to win it and be playing Champions League football next season. I'm not going to lie to you and tell you I'm happy about the draw. Since the 4-1 win against CSKA I've been speaking [...]

Morning friends, I hope this Friday finds yo as well as could be, and that those of yo with heart conditions managed to make it through the game yesterday unscathed. Me? Well, let's just say that the air was a bit blue with the sound of the colourful language I was using when that second [...]
