This season is crazier than Will Ferrell, hepped up on goofballs, riding a unicycle the wrong way down a one-way street. Everything is weird and no more so can it be signified than the game I watched yesterday in which the current Champions lumbered their way around the pitch against a team who were relegation […]
I’ve seen three different first team Campbell’s in my time as an Arsenal supporter. Kevin was a decent forward, Sol was an immense centre half and now Joel, who I will admit I have been a clear sceptic of in the past, has stepped up in an important game and maybe what Arsène ‘smelt’ in […]
Tonight is – if you believe Joel Campbell – the biggest game of the season so far for Arsenal. I get that, especially given that our Champions League future hinges on a 2-0 win or better score line, but whilst it might be important ‘to date’, I don’t think we’ll look back on it as […]
We’re about a day and a half away from beginning our Champions League knock-out match against Olympiakos and I for one, am excited. I’m excited because it really does all boil down to the performance on the night and for the first time in a few years of playing Olympiakos in Greece, the game actually […]
I know it’s pretty easy to talk about it in hindsight, but that was pretty much as routine as you’re going to get in the Champions League, perhaps somewhat to most Arsenal fans frustration given the relative ease in which we dispatched Zagreb compared to the Olympiakos game.
In truth, our opponents were less than average, […]
So Arsène’s presser delivered an update on the much anticipated Coquelin injury situation yesterday and, perhaps having been burnt too many times with incorrect prognoses before, the manager was reluctant to give an exact timeframe on Le Coq’s return. He said it would certainly be more than a month, and would most likely be more […]
The team news from Arsène will be revealed at some point today ahead of the Champions League game against Dinamo Zagreb, but there’s only one real piece of news we’re all nervously awaiting: the immediate fate of Francis Coquelin.
Perhaps foolishly, I pushed myself in to believing that it would not be as bad as first […]
I’m really not sure what to make of yesterday’s 5-1 hammering to Bayern Munich. I mean, obviously we played poorly and obviously our Champions League qualifications are hanging by the tiniest of threads, but it was a strange game because at times in the second half we looked good. Heck, Ollie G even weighed in […]
This feels like an incredibly steep hill for the team to climb tonight. In fact, whilst not impossible, it does feel like the kind of bill that you’d probably walk around if you had the chance.
Bayern Munich on their own patch are a formidable opponent to say the least, but given that we have already […]
With just 24 hours until matchday, perhaps it was inevitable that we’d start getting snippets of information from both sets of players about this week’s Bayern game, with Arturo Vidal treading firmly on the line between praise and arrogance. Having read his comments and seen some of the headlines, you could be forgiven that he […]
