Returning injuries give Emery food for Europa League thought

I guess one of the benefits of the new job I have is that because I often have to do early morning calls my commute into London is a little later than in my previous role. That's a benefit from a blog perspective because it means I'm writing today's instalment having just seen the team [...]

Awkward Arsenal still unconvincing despite needed win against Huddersfield

Rule number one for any football fan is to win the match. In the late eighties and early nineties other teams mocked 'boring boring Arsenal' but we didn't care. We made defending an art form. When we went one nil up we were like an Italian side who were rarely broken at our peak. And [...]

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 [...]

Blackpool beckons for The Arsenal, so does Suarez

Morning all. Hope you're all feeling good on the Saturday? I'm off on an away day journey to the North West to see a bit of the mighty Arsenal take on the Tangerines Blackpool in my first trip to Bloomfield Road. And I must say I'm massively looking forward to it. A couple of seasons [...]

We need Özil back tomorrow

As is the time of year, there's no room for any kind of major introspection of the last couple of games for the team, with a home match against Huddersfield on the horizon and having spoken to Nigel Winterburn on the show last night I found it interesting to hear him talk about physical fatigue [...]

Feel good factor back at Arsenal – earlier than I thought

Later one from me today on account with a plethora of work-related calls starting from 7am, but the burning need to splurge Arsenal-related thinking's on to my usual daily vehicle remains as strong as ever. So as I head in to the office this mid morning, I'm still somewhat basking in the glow of the [...]

Kos has a lot to offer as Emery talks up young rotation

Happy Saturday friends. How are we all doing? Feeling happy that it's the weekend? Or troubled that we have to wait one more day to get the real football back in the shape of The Arsenal? At least we had a press conference with ol' Unai giving us an update on where he thinks we're [...]

Is Arsenal’s injury curse back?

A later one from me today, as the new job means conference calls first thing on a Friday, but given that it's been an interlull week I guess that it doesn't really make a lot of difference. Ol' Unai has taken to doing his pressers in the afternoon anyway so it's not like I have [...]

Anyone notice Ivan leave? Plus some pre Liverpool thoughts

I said it yesterday, I've said it a couple of months back when the announcement of Gazidis was made, but don't let the door hit you on the way out Ivan. Yesterday he was officially gone and it said so much about his tenure that half of the people who are Arsenal fans that I [...]
