Happy Sunday and happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. May you be gifted with pieces of paper with writing scrawled on it. And beer. Or wine.  I'm in the sunny West of France with the in-laws, having spent the weekend relaxing, and with the total lack of interesting Arsenal related news I [...]

General election vs transfer window: it’s all a load of…

Howdy Thursday, where have you been? I've been expecting you earlier than this, but no matter now, you're here and that's all that we need worry about. Of course no offence, but you're not Friday or Saturday, which are better days it has to be said. In the U.K. It's Election Day. Snap election at [...]

Keep on basking, Gooners

The great thing about having the FA Cup final after the season has finished, is that we all get to prolong the basking a little bit longer and we get to have some positive memories to take away with us, for which I am rather glad you know. I'm still revelling in that display and [...]

Season defining game at Wembley

I'm sure I'm not alone in breathing a collective sigh of relief at what happened yesterday at Wembley. The fact that everyone has been speculating in the media on a possible Tottenham match towards a double has left a horrible taste in the mouth and a churning of the stomach. So when the final whistle [...]

77 for Arsenal. That’s what’s needed.

Morning. You alright? Recovered from the fact that the only English team left in this competition is Leicester? A Leicester with whom everyone seems to have dismissed their domestic discrepancies and focused on their 'plucky' assault on the Champions League. Honestly. I can't work out whether it's patronising more to the actual Leicester fans or [...]

Take Eek over Apathy with new Arsenal manager

Morning. I've woken up to a feeling that I thought I wouldn't get for at least another couple of days. I'm over the Bayern defeat already.  Perhaps it's because I always knew we weren't good enough. Perhaps it's because I vented my spleen on my blog yesterday. Perhaps I'm just so bored with Arsenal I [...]

When you hear "The Invincibles" you know we're not talking about Preston North End. For those unaware, Arsenal were dubbed "The [...]

Feathering the nest at international tournaments

Having seen the unfancied Italians see off the very much fancied Belgian's last night, my first thoughts (perhaps inevitably) were towards supposed 'big name' players not performing, as well as the hype that surrounds them going in to international tournaments. I find internationals competitions a very strange bubble of football when it comes to players [...]

Give Jack minutes, give Kroos a round of applause

I had an absolute skinful on Saturday night at a friends BBQ, which was followed yesterday by an all-day football tournament, hence why I wrote off writing anything until this morning. Bt what did I learn from the football I've watched since then? Well, firstly, England have taken up the Spurs'ing mantle. What with bottling [...]

Özil again inspirational in dispatching of Everton

Well now, none of us truly believed that a game at home against Everton, did we? I mean this is The Arsenal, we never make it easy for ourselves, so we were always going to have a bit of nail biting that needed to be done.  It was a cagey affair from the off. From [...]
