No games with Alexis, get him out & replaced

The Chilean hath spoken and yesterday afternoon we were given insight from Alexis as to what he wants. He wants Champions League football and it's always been his dream to win it. But as he's also admitted, it's up to Arsenal when it comes to what happens next, so it appears he's moved his chess [...]

The stupidity of Kos

I didn't go to the game yesterday, on account of other prior arrangements and if I'm honest, there was part of me that was quite glad about that fact. Glad because whenever I go along to The Arsenal I do get a lot more emotionally invested than when I stay away from football and so [...]

Club action on Europa, as players prep for it

It sounds to me like everyone at The Arsenal are already preparing for life without the Champions League. Word in the pubs over recent weeks is that the club know they will have to do something if we fail this Sunday to get some sort of miracle set of results and with Ivan talking about [...]

Prepare the development squad

It was probably always going to be too much to ask for West Ham to put on the same display as they did against the Totts and dispatch Liverpool yesterday. West Ham hate that lot almost as much as us so of course they were going to give it a little more than their last [...]

Can Arsenal still finish in the top four and win the FA Cup?

In short, I don’t believe so, not both anyway. Given the way this season has gone it would be highly unlikely and yet, the fact that it is still even conceivable that it could happen is really quite amazing if you think about it. At times this season Arsenal have looked rudderless. We’ve lurched from [...]

Change across more than management a good thing at Arsenal?

Morning. Hope your Wednesday was better than it started and today is better than yesterday. Football certainly hasn't helped of late, so I've been engaging in other activities, like watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and pretending I was seven again. I'll ignore the fact the movie was terrible. It brought me back to my childhood. [...]

The ageing Arsenal boxer – it’s sad

I don't really know what to say. I don't think there's anything that I can say that would either soothe my own soul when it comes to Arsenal, or offer any words of consolation or positivity to you, because I have none for myself. Arsenal Football Club looks like it's on its knees at the [...]

The copy/paste blog from the last few seasons?

I don't really know where to begin today. This is the first time where I've had a pre-match blog and can't really think of anything remotely useful to say. Half of me thought about finding my pre match blog from the season before last, or the one before that, and doing a 'copy/paste' job. But [...]

Abject Arsenal players are a disgrace to the shirt

I am appalled. I am appalled at the travesty of a performance that we witnessed yesterday. In Championship Manager they used to have a saying which involved describing you team as 'running out of superlatives to describe'. What is the exact opposite of that? What is the antithesis of running out of nice things to [...]

Get the variables right against Bayern; and use pace to win on the counter

So here we are. Bayern Munich away. Like last season. And the season before. Etc, etc, repeat to fade.  I'd be more excited if we were playing a team with which we had a terrible record with, but haven't played for a while, if I'm honest with you. I'm just struggling to get too 'count [...]
