Arsène and his players disrespect Forest, the FA Cup and the fans

Yesterday morning I may not have been able to predict which Arsenal players would start yesterday afternoon's FA Cup third round game away to Nottingham Forest, but given our away form this season in pretty much all competitions, there could be a fairly decent degree of performance that I would expect to be put in. [...]

Happy FA Cup Sunday boys and girls. Hope you are having a good one and preparing yourself mentally for the test that is Nottingham Forest this afternoon at 4pm. For those of us in England not going to the game we have the added stress of having to deal with the hopeless commentary that is [...]

Arsenal: Hope of victory but there is no harmony

I thought about blogging yesterday but given Arsène was doing his presser at 8.45am, I thought I'd hold off until today before I compiled some thoughts, so here I am trying to make sense of what he had to say when sitting in front of the assembled media. Firstly, having read and watched a lot [...]

Keep on basking, Gooners

The great thing about having the FA Cup final after the season has finished, is that we all get to prolong the basking a little bit longer and we get to have some positive memories to take away with us, for which I am rather glad you know. I'm still revelling in that display and [...]

How the flibberdee gibbet did that happen? Where on earth did that performance from Arsenal come come? What. The. Actual. Fugg. I turned up early at JJ Moons because I thought I needed to drown my sorrows before the game had even started. I spent four and a half hours telling people we didn't have [...]

So here we are. We've arrived at what is now the single most important day of the season and it's a day that will quite literally be season defining: the FA Cup Final. A win will have seen this shambles of a season end with some semblance of positivity about it. A win would give [...]

With the Cup final being the only remaining top flight game of the season, it's no surprise that all eyes are turning towards it, and the club themselves are no different from anyone else in that regard, yesterday releasing a lovely looking infographic which outlines some interesting facts about Arsenal and the FA Cup. Apparently [...]

2002 Arsenal/Chelsea karma scares me

I'm an Arsenal fan in my mid thirties and can I admit something to you: winning trophies - any trophies- means a hell of a lot more to me than it did ten years ago. Ten years ago I thought to myself that setting us up to be financially sound, to deliver Champions League football [...]

Lucas is a tourist and Arsenal are a conker

Morning fellow Gooners. How are you feeling? Are you still reeling from the failure of the league campaign? Or are you like me, in this weird limbo in which you're not quite sure right now, given the circumstances?  Yes the league campaign was pretty shoddy and yes, the manager and players can and should be [...]
