Happy Sunday folks. Hope all is well with you lot? For me it was a day off from blogging yesterday, on account of it be a Christmas party on Friday, but back in the saddle today, hoping the boys are up for it and we can get ourselves three points against Southampton this lunchtime. It [...]

Huddersfield at home is our third game in a week and represents an opportunity to continue this positive countdown to Christmas with a win and to keep the good momentum going. It'll also ensure that confidence remains high at a time in which we've had a few injuries over the last few weeks and some [...]

Ahh man am I hanging this morning. Like, PROPER hanging, which is what booze will do to you. A LOT of booze. But what always sobers the mind is an Arsenal game and so as I hazily stab at my MacBook this morning (as I start today's blog it is technically morning, what with there being [...]

I've been struggling in my mind to make a case for us all week for this game, in an effort to try and manage my own expectations and forgive me - dear friends - if this blog comes across as a little too apprehensive, but I am not looking forward to this game one little [...]

Saturday is football and football is Saturday. I love it when The Arsenal play on a Saturday (even if the actual kick off time is rubbish). It feels right and proper. And what with this being the first Saturday of the season it feels extra exciting. I have that nervous butterflies in the stomach feeling [...]

The Arsenal purge begins

Flipping heck, I'm sure we were all expecting a bit of change at Arsenal when Arsene Wenger had moved on, but did any of us expect the type of noises that came out yesterday re: some of the coaching staff, to be so swift and decisive? It was like Arsenal's very own version of Night [...]

As we all wait with baited breath on the injury to Mkhitaryan, my mind has already started to shift to tomorrow's game against Southampton and wonder what happens if our Armenian has suffered the suspected medial ligament damage that Arsene spoke about immediately after the game on Thursday night, then it really will be a race [...]

Having had a week off in the Highlands, chilling, ignoring that football is a thing (other than the occasional - and I do mean occasional - glance at my Twitter feed) I thought i'd pen some thoughts with some renewed vigour and excitement that this latest international break is done, dusted and can be consigned [...]

Where to evening start this morning. Arsenal won a football match. Again. Arsenal scored three goals. Arsenal kept a clean sheet. Petr Cech saved a flipping pelanty. It was almost as if Arsenal realised that they aren't one of the worst teams in the division, that they can actually put teams away (eventually), that they [...]
