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 [...]

The end and the beginning – Arsene and Arsenal

I don't even know where to start this morning. We've all now read the news, listened to the press con terence, seen the outpouring of wonderful words about Arsene Wenger, but when it comes to actually sitting down and compiling some thoughts now that he has announced he is leaving the club in the summer,I [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Bleugh. International friendly weekend. The most pointless of all weekends. Can't be dealing with it. So I think I'll just not. There are plenty of other things out there to focus on. Like finding out a way to filter out people who constantly sniff on the tube. Or conclusively solving the issue of the constantly [...]

It’s ok to want change, move on, then revere a great servant to Arsenal

It was a fair few years ago now that our Head of Academy Development (of variation of job title thereof) coined the phrase 'automatisms' in an interview when talking about the little partnerships and bits that 'click' within a component parts of a team, but that's what has me thinking this morning. Specifically after we [...]

Morning all, hope yours is a good one, filled with optimism for what the day ahead might bring? For me it's a standard working day but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try to take what pleasures you can from it. After all, every day that passes by is a day you'll never get to relive, [...]
