Well the 'historic quadruple' is now over for Man City and after the 'Invincible' tag was taken away thanks to Liverpool in the Premier League, the world is waking up to the realisation that City are in fact, quite human after all. Let's not get too excited for Sunday yet though, eh folks? I mean [...]

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 [...]

‘Be careful what you wish for’ Arsenal

Some thoughts on why the phrase ‘be careful what you wish for’ no longer applies to Arsenal fans who want Arsène to stay. It’s time for change and I’m not afraid of it any more.

Are Arsenal the new Everton?

Howdy folks and welcome to Tuesday. I’m at a conference all day today so it means an earlier than usual start so I can rattle through a few work emails before I head off.  It’s one of those annoying things where you know you’re out of the office and you know that unless you do [...]

Out of touch board klaxon; Arsène team update for Swansea

If the Kroenke spin machine was in full force on Wednesday night, then the Chips Express that trundled into town on Thursday was a complete derailment.  The AGM took place yesterday and as usual it was an affair of relatively pointless corporate nothingness, but unlike usual it was presided over by a man who couldn’t [...]

Kroenke spin machine in overdrive

It’s the AGM today and with the yanks in attendance and the AST set to go through with their symbolic gesture of no confidence by voting against Sir Chips and the Kroenke’s, it’s just to be a slightly more cagey atmosphere, even if that’s the best that fan groups can do to suggest change at the [...]

Lesser of two Arsenal evils?

Hello hello hello, hope you're well? Anything to talk about today that's Arsenal related? No? Oh well, bye then! Of course I'm kidding! You think NewsNow wouldn't have my a** on a plate if they let me get away with blogs that short? I remember after one of the many utterly abysmal Arsenal performances once, [...]

Stan Kroenke could rot Arsenal like Lerner, Gillett and Hicks

I'd heard - like I'm sure many of you did over social media - that the Kroenke bid for Usmanov's shares had happened, but the mainstream media are now going for it and so it seems like it's becoming more relevant and in the public eye, after Amy Lawrence from the Guardian wrote a story [...]

The Arsenal contract mess

I was kind of liking the Arsenal quiet zone that had existed whilst all of the players were away on international duty. It was like an oasis of calm amidst the gnashing of teeth on all sides at the moment. The silence wasn't deafening, it was bliss, and I took advantage to have a nice [...]

Arsenal cry wolf for the final time

Well, that's it then, we've ended the summer known as the 'Catalyst for Change' summer, with that usual of Arsenal things: an underwhelming feeling that comes when you know your club hasn't done all it can to be competitive. Here's the thing: I will go to many home games, I will go to a small [...]
