Dire defensive displays will derail Arsenal’s season

We've got to all be honest with ourselves here: this team is probably going to fall away from even challenging from the top four if we continue to put in performances away from home like yesterday. Giroud's late flick in on 88 minutes may have taken some of the stink of the performance away, but [...]

I've awoken this morning to snow. It really is quite magical this time of year and London is white with it. In a way I'm glad we don't have a home game because getting to the Emirates on the Met Line today could be an absolute nightmare. But it's an away day and for many [...]

Yesterday evening I picked up The Management from her work Christmas gathering and I did the gentlemanly thing and dropped off a couple of her colleagues at the nearby station in Surbiton. On the way I was asked by one of the lads - a United fan - the usual question i'm sure we all [...]

Chosen few witness Arsenal hammering

I can be one of the few that said they actually bothered turning up last night for the dead rubber against BATE last night but, unlike my picture above suggests, that's where the only disappointment of the night exists. The stadium was probably even less than half full and whilst that will no doubt be [...]

Is there anything quite like a last-gasp winner in a football match? Is there anything as delicious as knowing your team has scored with so little time for the opposition to respond, that even though your club specialises in brain farts from time-to-time, you know there will be no way back for the opponent?

Moaning y'all and welcome to Sunday match day, a day in which we once again travel away to a tough ground to try to pick up three points against an in form team, in the shape of Burnley. This'll be a tough one today. Burnley are an established Premier League side under Dyche but more [...]
