Only at Arsenal

It seems just about everyone in the world wants to slap their proverbial balls on the table and declare an interest in Mbappe right now. PSG and Liverpool have 'declared an interest' if you listen to the gutter press and whilst we don't know whether anyone's interest is genuine other than Arsenal and Madrid - [...]

Boycott the Sun; too many deals to be done?

I didn't blog yesterday because it seemed somewhat of a pointless activity given the horrific news of Saturday evening at London Bridge. Football can seem so trivial and far removed from the atrocities that some people can inflict on their fellow man sometimes. The world can be such a dark place when people are willing [...]

Spin merchants Arsenal dig out 2012 rhetoric

In 2014 when Arsène signed his last deal, there was a genuine feeling around some of the fanbase and people that I speak to, that it was probably worth giving it to him. We'd got the trophy monkey off our backs, we'd come out of a period of self imposed austerity and now we could [...]

The stupidity of Kos

I didn't go to the game yesterday, on account of other prior arrangements and if I'm honest, there was part of me that was quite glad about that fact. Glad because whenever I go along to The Arsenal I do get a lot more emotionally invested than when I stay away from football and so [...]

Little bit lies

You and I may already be aware that Arsenal's Premier League campaign is already run and that Champions League football is unlikely to reach the Emirates next season, but Arsène had to put a brace face on it and talk up how the team will keep fighting, etc, etc, but at this stage does anybody [...]

Arsenal’s run in – the numbers don’t look good

Morning. How are you doing? Still licking your wounds from Sunday?  Yeah I know. Me too.  It's probably a good thing that there's a bit of quiet coming out of the club this week. They're all probably wrapped up in their bubbles somewhere. As for you and I, we have to deal with Tiny Totts [...]

Arsenal: The institutionalised fanbase

I don't really feel much like blogging today if I'm honest with you. I mean I will, after all it's my thing that I do when I get up in the morning and sit on a train hurtling towards London for a day of grind, but certainly the desire has been sapped out of me. [...]

Arsenal players don’t fight for our club

All last week I spoke to Gooners about yesterday's north London Derby and despite our fragile confidence and dodgy form, I was told by many that we had a chance because it is a derby match and form goes out of the window in derbies. My retort to people was "not for Arsenal. Not away. [...]

Desire to win – take it before it goes

This might be a short one today. Mainly on account that quite simply, I can't really be arsed with Arsenal at the moment, pretty much reflective of the attitude of the players.  The official website is, quite sensibly, keeping schtum and the lead stories are related to the gloats, great, David Rocastle. At a time [...]

Palace – Arsenal players’ silent revolt

As I listened to the chants of "you're not fit to wear the shirt" from our fans at the Palace ground in the away end, I asked the question to Ben - who has become somewhat of an Arsenal therapist in the last couple of seasons - is it me or is this like the [...]
