This Sunday could be a season defining game. The closer we get to it, the more and more it feels like it, yet I am still wrestling with my preconceptions that it isn’t. Because it’s Leicester. How crazy is that? If it was City, or United, Chelski or The Spuds, I’d have butterflies in my […]
In this – quite frankly mad – season, it seems strange that with us eight points from the top of the league, there still remains hope. But Leicester’s win at the Etihad has done exactly that, strangely, because if it was City, Chelski or United that had just established such an assailable lead, we would […]
Small battle won, war on football affordability goes on, but we can get back to talking football for now
There’s no place better to start today than with the u-turn by Arsenal yesterday evening on the surcharge for ticket prices, announcing that they would not, on this occasion, enforce the charge for the Barcelona game. Funnily enough, I was actually halfway through a podcast talking about the issues of the surcharge and how it felt […]
Today is Arsène’s press conference and whilst I’d love to be able to be talking about football, I like many season ticket holders, have had the misfortune to receive an email from the club yesterday afternoon about the additional cash they will require me to fork out at the end of the season for the […]
By now you’ve read plenty of match reports, probably seen the game either in the flesh or on TV, you’ve checked your social feeds a few times and you know all about what transpired last night. So there’s no point in me giving you a blow-by-blow account of what happened at home to Southampton. Well, […]
So after all the hype, all the over-the-top Sky Sports blustering, all of the pomp and everything being turned yellow, the transfer deadline day (no, I’m not capitalising it) turned out to be what it is every season: an exercise in how to get overexcited.
I’ve got to tell you, I was glad we weren’t involved, […]
After a couple of draws and a disappointing Sunday afternoon against Chelski, it was good to see Arsenal get back on the victory trail by overcoming a stubborn Burnley side yesterday afternoon, as well as get a decent look at some new and returning faces.
As expected, Arsene made some changes to the squad and with […]
There’s something comforting about a good, old-fashioned, 3pm FA Cup tie, isn’t there? It’s quintessentially English, I find, with bad weather normally thrown in to the mix too. We’ve certainly ticked all of today’s boxes, as well as a a game against a lower league opposition in Burnley, who will probably be a Premier League […]
Yesterday Arsène delivered his injury news update via the official site and, quite deliciously, it included confirmation that everyone bar Santi and Jack are back in training. So that’s Rosicky, Welbeck and ahead of schedule our midfield destroyed Francis Coquelin.
I can’t tell you how pleased I am. Well, I can, via this blog, but you […]
I know it’s the FA Cup this weekend, I inow it’s an opportunity to bench our league campaign for a few days, but it is the league that keeps me awake at night. What’s been keeping me awake is our poor form, but also the form of others, who have all picked up varying degrees […]
