Permutations show how far Arsenal have fallen

It's that time of the year where football fans start to become mathematicians, as they try to calculate the various permutations that could befall their football team. How many points to be assured of safety? How many points to get in to the playoff places? How close are we to the Europa League spots? What [...]

Formation flip-flopping and transfer plan confusion at Arsenal

I'd like to tell you that I'm still reeling from Sunday's performance but much like our domestic season, it all feels a little pointless and actually, it wouldn't be true, because I just feel resigned when I think about Arsenal this season in the league. People have stopped talking to me about Arsenal specifically at [...]

Arsenal fail to pick up another point in an away game in 2018. It’s getting boring now.

Tribalism within tribalism: the myopia of some Arsenal fans

Morning all, hope yours is a good one, filled with optimism for what the day ahead might bring? For me it's a standard working day but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try to take what pleasures you can from it. After all, every day that passes by is a day you'll never get to relive, [...]

Brighton defeat: Somebody end this. Now.

When The Management walked into the lounge yesterday at around 4pm and asked "how did they get on?" In reference to Arsenal's dismal 2-1 defeat away to Brighton, I think she was a little taken aback by my nonchalant "they lost. Meh. Do you fancy watching Blade Runner?" response. Her response pretty much summed it [...]

City defeat again: Arsène knows. Knows it’s over.

Hello darkness, my old friend I've come to talk with you again Because a football club softly creeping Left has manager that is sleeping And the vision that was planted in my brain Still remains Within the sound of silence In restless dreams Wenger walked alone Nobody could seem to dethrone *************** The prophetic words [...]

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 [...]

Arsenal fans ‘goodwill’ down to fumes

I kept my own counsel yesterday with matters pertaining to The Arsenal, partly due to the nature of the defeat on Sunday, but also because I felt rough as an old pair of boots. Said 'roughness' was partially of my own doing; I wasn't really that well on Sunday but I decided I was going [...]
