In this past week I've talked about the importance of momentum, about how when we've even been anywhere near the top of the league at any stage, it's been because we've had a good start to the season and that has carried through until at least the midway point. Yesterday I talked about it being [...]

Yesterday my blog featured a few words and a picture of Joel Campbell, speculating that it's a clean slate for many and that players like Joel might think they have a chance with the new man at the helm, but having watched him in bits and pieces of yesterday's Costa Rica game against England I [...]

Sokratis hardly inspires, but we hope for a plan

Morning folks. It was a bank holiday yesterday in the UK and as a result I simply couldn't be arsed to drag my sorry carcass out of bed to write a blog. But also there was a dearth of news that is available on Arsenal and so I just figured 'meh'. Then yesterday afternoon I [...]

On Wednesday we got ourselves a new manager confirmed and it's no surprise given what we now know about him that he's been at the training ground and going hardcore on swotting up on everything about the club. Meeting all the backroom staff, having a quick chat with Kos, starting to get an idea on [...]

Morning folks. Hope you're feeling good today, with just four days remaining until the start of the season, in which I've got to be honest it has absolutely flown by.  I've rather enjoyed my time off. I'm not quite chomping at the bit yet though; probably because I'm unsure what to make of this Arsenal [...]

Victory in the 'Jose Treble' cup assured yesterday, our second trophy of pre season and a cast iron GUARANTEE that we will win the league, league cup, FA Cup and Europa League, all without dropping any points or conceding any goals. Or not. Before the game we were all clear that you can't read too [...]

Xhaka/Ramsey connection most important for Community Shield

It's Community Shield day today and although I'll be out and unlikely to be able to watch it, I'll be keeping a close eye on the game, because it is the final dress rehearsal before the real stuff next week.  It'll be a tough game today. Chelsea will be ready for us and I am [...]

Resolution from Arsenal on Alexis is admirable but foolhardy

Hey folks, hope you're all alreet? I had a charity casino night last night, so a few Sol's and some Chateuneuf du Pape are conspiring to make me feel very old and very tired ahead of a day in the Big Smoke.  Arsenal-wise, however, there is the freshness of a new season upon us and [...]

Catalan sympathy falls on death ears, as Emi goes mainland

Shh...do you hear that? Listen, very quietly.... .... Do you know what that is? That is the sound of sympathy for FC Barcelona's current plight on losing one of their star players at the peak of his powers.  That is the sound of, as Timberland on a Justin Timberlake song once said, "what goes around [...]
