The sun, the goals, the comments – West Ham match review

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 [...]

Sentiment aside, momentum is still needed against West Ham

Today is the first time we'll hear from Arsene Wenger properly since the announcement was made on Friday about his exit but, in true Wenger style, I suspect he will want to dwell little on that and more on the game today. So I'll follow suit after this opening few words. But I do think [...]

Some post press conference thoughts on the empty stadiums, subsidised tickets, and player injuries ahead of Arsenal v West Ham

Arsène Wenger: Die the hero or live the villain?

As Bjork so famously once said: It's oh so quiet...it's oh so still... There's nowt on out to shout about that's for sure. No "we must respond", no "learn our lessons", no reported deep and meaningful team 'heart-to-heart's. Just radio silence. I don't necessarily mind that though. I think everyone associated with Arsenal is just [...]

Flat in Newcastle as Arsenal underperform again

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

Atletico over two legs isn’t ideal

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 [...]

Victory don’t come easy – CSKA v Arsenal

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 [...]

Özil is the key in Moscow tonight

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.

Roma fire a warning shot for Arsenal’s benefit

If ever there was a metaphorical neon 'warning' light that should have been flashing at London Colney and every Arsenal players house last night, it was demonstrated in the Champions League, but not where we thought. I tuned in to watch Liverpool hang on in the first half and then had some dinner and didn't [...]

Is Jack’s Arsenal race run?

I think it is you know. And that gives me no pleasure in writing it I can assure you. He's one of ours. Signed since the age of about seven and approaching as much time with an affiliation at Arsenal as Arsène Wenger. He's risen up through the ranks, played in European competition, roused the [...]
