Yesterday's game was always going to be more of an emotional and nostalgia-infused affair after Wenger's announcement on Friday. It was a warm day with that April sun that sometimes greets us at this time of year in London, all adding to a very carnival and friendly feel to the game, almost like when it's [...]

Arsenal fail to pick up another point in an away game in 2018. It’s getting boring now.

Well we now know what we have to overcome in the semi final of the Europa League if we want to win it and be playing Champions League football next season. I'm not going to lie to you and tell you I'm happy about the draw. Since the 4-1 win against CSKA I've been speaking [...]

Morning friends, I hope this Friday finds yo as well as could be, and that those of yo with heart conditions managed to make it through the game yesterday unscathed. Me? Well, let's just say that the air was a bit blue with the sound of the colourful language I was using when that second [...]

Some thoughts ahead of the second leg quarter final of the Europa League. CSKA Moscow will press high and so we need Özil to find space to create chances.

Arsenal getting attack right, defence wrong, against Southampton

Happy Monday folks. It's a wet and drizzly one in West London and has pretty much been like that since Saturday but I'll not let that get me down. After all Arsenal notched another win, got three more goals, we saw Aubameyang get on the score sheet yet again, Welbeck even notched a few, so [...]

A fantastic win, some great performances from Özil and Ramsey, Lacazette back in the goals. What’s there not to be very happy about this Friday morning?

Sometimes football can be a real grind. To play, to coach, to manage, it can be a right old slog and when The Management's family came into the kitchen yesterday at halftime - gingerly entering wondering in what mood I'd be in - all I could really report was that the first half had felt [...]
