Mbappe deal makes me think of Bergkamp and Sol

Another day and another Kylian Mbappe story, as each journalist desperately tries to re-hash the same transfer, but with a new spin on it. We've had the initial interest, the 'Wenger in France', the Real Madrid intrigue, the 'family member talks' and now we're at what is usually the final stages, which is the 'increasingly [...]

It’s hot and quiet but at least Giroud stays

It's a hot one today. Some say the hottest in the south east since 1976 which, if you weren't alive to experience it, is all older people like your parents talk about whenever you talk about whether or not we'll have a decent summer in this country. Ahh well, you see whatever they say about [...]

Ox makes England 7% more interesting

"Well? How many Arsenal players are the England team?" The Management said to me yesterday.  "None at the moment. Full of dirty Spurs players. That's why I'm only half watching this sh*tshow" I said at half time. Of course much like the second half and the late flurry of goals, it got much more interesting, [...]

Can Arsenal still finish in the top four and win the FA Cup?

In short, I don’t believe so, not both anyway. Given the way this season has gone it would be highly unlikely and yet, the fact that it is still even conceivable that it could happen is really quite amazing if you think about it. At times this season Arsenal have looked rudderless. We’ve lurched from [...]

The horrible permutations of today’s game; the expectation of tomorrow’s

Happy Saturday Gooners. It's FA Cup weekend but as seems to be par for the course these days, we don't play until Sunday. I suppose we'd better get used to it because next season unless something drastic happens in the Premier League, we'll be seeing a lot less Saturday football and a lot more Sunday [...]

Let’s get to Wembley

Today is about winning. Nothing else would be remotely successful, but equally, at this stage I could not care less how it's done. I just want us to get to Wembley. If it's a functional 'one nil to the Arsenal' then fine. Let's just do it and be done with it. If it's a high [...]

Don’t expect this weekend, but hope for a utopian end of season for Arsenal

Not a lot going on for us today, eh folks? I mean sure, i'll be you're filling your day with all manner of interesting things, but i'd be surprised if they are Arsenal-related thing, what with us not playing until Saturday evening against Liverpool. Me? I'm going to see if you really can get a [...]

An unknown quantity for Arsenal – both who will start for us and Preston themselves

Howdy howdy folks, hope you're all gravy on a Saturday, looking forward to the good ol' FA Cup fixture tonight? I'm rather excited, I have to say, because Preston is a new ground for me and it's also the first away FA Cup tie i think I've been too. I can't really fully remember if [...]

Welbeck’s timely return, when title aspirations hang on a knife-edge

If results go the way that I'd expect today, by the time we're all singing Auld Lang Syne at midnight, we could have a distance of 12 points to make up on Chelski to win the league before we play Palace tomorrow at 4pm. Sadly, I'm not full enough of Christmas/New Year hope that Stoke [...]

Mixed bag of injury news, as Arsenal start psychological recovery

It's still two days before the team play and quite frankly, the football couldn't come quickly enough, because it hasn't at all felt like a packed schedule so far. We've played one game in about two weeks. So I'm looking forward to seeing how we get on against Palace. Arsène gave an update on the [...]
