Cup final Sunday. I must admit to you that I do prefer it when it lands on a Saturday and is in May, because it's a much more pleasurable experience than having to be layered up in February. But let's not look a gift horse in the mouth, eh? After all, at least we're once [...]

Hoping Arsene is thinking three

Morning folks, how you doing, on this cup final weekend? I have a little scratchy throat problem going on which, in prep for a final in which I intend to completely decimate my voice from songs from before I've even arrived at the ground tomorrow, isn't exactly a good sign. What isn't also a good [...]

Howdy Gooners, y'all alreet? How arte you feeling on a footballess Saturday? Bored? Finding out that there are other things in life? Enjoying the freedom that the complete failure against Forest in the third round of the FA Cup brings? Obviously I want Arsenal to win every competition and i'd much prefer we had  shot [...]

Ticket allocations and Ramsey-based decisions

Happy 'Middle-o-week' day to thee, my wonderful Arsenal supporting colleague, I hope yours is a good one? If you're a UK-based Arsenal fab and a season ticket holder then I guess the answer to that is dependent on whether or not you got lucky in the ballot yesterday for the cup final. By and large [...]

Tactical shift sees Arsenal through to Wembley

In the cold light of the new day, I can say with a degree of comfort that in the end, that was an enjoyable football match. It didn't start that well though, did it? I mean I don't really know what Arsène was thinking about when he decided to opt for four at the back [...]

The new League Cup approach – will it work tonight?

I find tonights League Cup encounter with Chelski an intriguing one. A competition that Arsène has historically been such an advocate of blooding young players in, even to the extent of getting to a final and prioritising development over giving the club the best possibility of a trophy, has this season seen a change of [...]

Play our best front line against Chelsea, Arsène

Match day again and it's Chelski away in the League Cup and having seen Bristol go one up against City last night it made me realise that anything is possible, including Arsenal actually beating them on their own turf this evening, although I also acknowledge that City did ultimately win it in the end. And [...]

Arsenal: the mess that is

Where does one even start? At the stories (unsubstantiated of course, after all, it is The Sun) that Alex Iwobi decided to see if he could improve his form by partying until the early hours of the morning before the FA Cup game against Forest this weekend? At the noises that City are now knocking [...]

Welbeckian finish sees us get a semi

When at halftime you're handed a Carlsberg (this is becoming a habit Andrew) and you look up at the statistics, which tell you that you're opponent hasn't even mustered an effort, corner, as well as making just three fouls, you kind of get the feeling that the game isn't quite going to finish all blood [...]

Hopefully a happy distraction against the hammers tonight

Howdy Gooners. It's that time of the week again - the match day without any pressure in the midweek! Love it. I love the feeling of going to a game where you don't want to chew all of your nails off. I love not spending the day being nervous. I love not having that feeling [...]
