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 [...]

The stupidity of Kos

I didn't go to the game yesterday, on account of other prior arrangements and if I'm honest, there was part of me that was quite glad about that fact. Glad because whenever I go along to The Arsenal I do get a lot more emotionally invested than when I stay away from football and so [...]

Arsenal chalking up more confidence against Sunderland

It was my last game of the season last night, because I have a prior engagement on Sunday and so won't be able to make the glory of achieving a top four finish at the expense of Liverpool, who will have lost a two goal lead to succumb to a 3-2 defeat at the hands [...]

Resurgence at Stoke – in time for the final?

I must say 'welcome back' to the Arsenal. Where have you been? We've been hanging around your dodgy cousin that smells a little bit and looks a lot like you, but has a limp, gammy leg, croaky voice, German measles and quite frankly, it's been an unpleasant experience. I thought that I'd just have to [...]

Arsenal testing the jab against Southampton

Had you almost forgotten that feeling? You know the one I'm talking about. You know! The one where an Arsenal team has started to deliver consistent results on the pitch and looked like a side that is in the top quarter of the league. Yeah, that feeling, one which we had all thought was gone for [...]

A confidence boost from United gratefully received

Yesterday's win against United felt good, didn't it? It had a performance that had us remembering that this collective of players are in fact capable of pulling off performances that can add a touch of sparkle to the weekend's proceedings. Forget about the fact Mourinho had talked up his own teams failings, forget about his [...]

Arsenal players don’t fight for our club

All last week I spoke to Gooners about yesterday's north London Derby and despite our fragile confidence and dodgy form, I was told by many that we had a chance because it is a derby match and form goes out of the window in derbies. My retort to people was "not for Arsenal. Not away. [...]

Gritty Arsenal find a way against Leicester. Just.

Three on the bounce feels lovely this morning doesn't it? It certainly felt good when I knew the game was over and on the surface, this new formation looks decent, with three victories and an Arsenal team that look like they're building their confidence to play it more and more with each game. Whether it's [...]

Battle and bottle back for The Arsenal

This season the players have - rightly in my opinion - been chastised for some of their performance and at times the perceived lack of effort they deliver for Arsenal football club. We've seen too many under par performances and that has led to widespread condemnation. So it only seems fair that this morning that [...]

The boost every Arsenal fan needed

A football match was won last night. By Arsenal. Away from home. I'd almost forgotten about what that felt like. Middlesbrough were the side dispatched and now in the cold light of day you can say with some comfort that they are probably almost definitely going down. Arsenal were hardly immense and at times we [...]
