Will there be a psychological issue of not winning away carried into next season?

With the final home game now past, the nice farewells and the thumping of Burnley behind us, there's little left in the season but to fulfil obligations by way of the remaining two fixtures, before Arsène and Arsenal go their separate ways. It'll feel a bit weird doing a match preview tomorrow if I'm honest, [...]

Is there fight left in this Arsenal team?

Flipping heck it's cold. So very cold. Cold enough to freeze the soul. It's certainly not warm enough to survive without a boiler, which is what happened in our household last night. Let's just say that when you need to shower by boiling a kettle at 6am in the morning, you hardly feel set up [...]

Absence and accountability at Arsenal

Gee golly it's cold here in London. The deceptive cold. The cold that when you look outside from your windows you see beautiful sunshine and crisp white powder on the ground and think "how beautiful" but when you step outside and try to avoid the ice you think "how treacherous". That, plus the fact that [...]

Hoping Arsene is thinking three

Morning folks, how you doing, on this cup final weekend? I have a little scratchy throat problem going on which, in prep for a final in which I intend to completely decimate my voice from songs from before I've even arrived at the ground tomorrow, isn't exactly a good sign. What isn't also a good [...]

Appreciating many games and hoping for fresh faces tomorrow

Are we wearing red shorts, aren't we wearing red shorts? Does it really matter? This is the kind of news that you get as an Arsenal fan when everything else dries up because we haven't played for over a week and it occurs to me this morning that perhaps we are lucky, because with European [...]

Lacazette’s absence means ‘Dat Guy’ gets his wish

I'm looking real hard for when the good news will start coming at Arsenal, I've got to be honest with you, because yesterday's Lacazette news just feels like yet another sh*t sandwich being served up to us and told to chow down. Domestically - League Cup aside - this season has been a festering pustule [...]

Form, team news and Wembley streak (which is tosh)

An early presser yesterday from the manager meant that we got some juicy updates on Arsenal a little earlier than the standard time but, let's be honest we're all so content starved following a great win last weekend and relative radio silence, that the Arsenal internet community was desperate to get something ahead of the [...]

Reconciling Arsenal results with transfers

Happy Friday to you and unto your kin. I hope you are well. I am still wrestling with my emotions from an Arsenal front if I'm honest. That's because I'm trying to reconcile the rapidly deteriorating football quality with the injection-in-arm adrenaline boost of signing one of the world's strikers, followed by the confirmation on [...]

Sometimes football can be as predictable as TV soap operas can't it? Particularly football's equivalent of the gutter trash storylines, which are usually the most sleazy in January and the summer months. So in what is this winters latest plot we saw the development late last night that most of us must have expected following [...]
