Online fan abuse gone too far?

Morning folks. Can we extend a bit of a 'thanks' to both Man City and Chelski for yesterday's 6-0 win for the current champions, because: It brought our goal difference with Chelski back to the same level having been a few behind them after their 5-0 hammering of Huddersfield last weekend It poured water on [...]

Huddersfield preview: no pragmatism, unleash the creativity, Arsenal

A game away to Huddersfield today represents somewhat of an 'interesting' statistical impasse today it seems. Arsenal haven't kept a clean sheet all season away from home, whilst Huddersfield have failed to score in their last five matches. Huddersfield haven't picked up a win in the league since they beat Fulham at home in November. [...]

No more excuses on away form, and Unai knows it

Ello, ello, ello to you my fellow Arsenal-supporting friends. It's wet in London. Wet and windy and as I write today's nonsensical ramblings I'm struggling to use my thumbs properly on the phone to type. I blame Brexit. And palm oil. And plastics. And Richard Scudamore. We go into this weekend looking for some kind [...]

Top Four countdown starts now for Arsenal

Morning folks. Happy Chinese New Year if you're so inclined to celebrate it. Me personally, I'm half celebrating because my company is predominantly Asian based and so whilst I don't get the day off like many of them do, I have to say it's rather nice having a week where I can play catch up [...]

Midfield is key against City

I sort of mentioned this yesterday, but today's game against City feels to me like a free hit, because they are chasing down Liverpool for the league title and on their home turf they should be expected to beat us. There's also the fact that we have enough injuries to contend with as it is. [...]

Suarez the low-risk, Arshavinesque, opportunity

Work got in the way of me blogging yesterday, which is always a bit of a pain in the arse, but with another 24 hours at least until we play City and with Arsenal just signing the one player this January, it's not as if there was tonnes to talk about anyway, was there? Suarez [...]

Suarez, Nkunku and……

Well that series of results was a turn up for the books last night, eh? I mean quite how we find ourselves clinging on to fourth after a laboured 2-1 victory over Cardiff City on Tuesday is beyond me if I'm honest. But thanks must go to Sarri and his Chelski side who got absolutely [...]

Stuttering Arsenal do the job against compact Cardiff

Blimey it was cold watching the football last night. Real 'brass monkeys' stuff and after the first half of football we watched I did wonder whether all I'd have to show from an evening of sleet and numb toes was a solitary point against a dogged Cardiff team. And it was a dogged Cardiff team. [...]

Football a sideshow on a sombre evening against Cardiff

This game will have a sadly strange feel about it today I think, what with it being the first game since Cardiff City have played, having tragically lost Emiliano Sala to that plane crash over a week ago. It's times like that in which you realise how football is just a side distraction in your [...]
