I’m really not sure what to make of yesterday’s 5-1 hammering to Bayern Munich. I mean, obviously we played poorly and obviously our Champions League qualifications are hanging by the tiniest of threads, but it was a strange game because at times in the second half we looked good. Heck, Ollie G even weighed in […]
This feels like an incredibly steep hill for the team to climb tonight. In fact, whilst not impossible, it does feel like the kind of bill that you’d probably walk around if you had the chance.
Bayern Munich on their own patch are a formidable opponent to say the least, but given that we have already […]
With just 24 hours until matchday, perhaps it was inevitable that we’d start getting snippets of information from both sets of players about this week’s Bayern game, with Arturo Vidal treading firmly on the line between praise and arrogance. Having read his comments and seen some of the headlines, you could be forgiven that he […]
The two bits of key news that came out yesterday included a bit of a blow, injury wise, as well as a bit of clarity on where Le Boss’ mindset is with regards to who will occupy the right-wing spot for the immediate future given our lengthy injury list.
Firstly, the injuries, which are a bitter pill […]
It’s Thursday, I have an annoying work presentation to contend with, but all that is ringing in between my ears are the sights and sounds of The Arsenal.
That’s what a well-earned victory against one of the best three teams in the world will give you. But more than that, it gives you something else, something […]
I love hindsight. It offers so much and asks so little. It is a wonderful gift and a soothing relaxant after an evening of the ‘now’ can build such tension.
Hindsight has allowed me to utter such a phrase:
What a glorious night of football under the floodlights.
Hindsight, as well as the bundled ‘header’ of Giroud and […]
A night under the lights to save our Champions League season against the German champions and recent history tormentors. What more could you ask for on a random Tuesday in October?
It wasn’t meant to be this way. We were supposed to have collected six points and be looking like a draw in one of these […]
Ahh Monday’s, the vindictive and evil brother of the lethargic Sunday, how much more tolerable you seem to be when The Arsenal have had a good game. I suppose, given that you are also followed by a matchday Tuesday as well, that I should find you a little bit more agreeable.
It almost feels like we […]
Quite a lot to get through, after an eventful day yesterday, eh? First and foremost, the AGM and I’ll make this relatively brief because a) I wasn’t there, and b) it has precious little to do with what is on the pitch and more about what is happening in the boardroom. Or not happening, apparently, […]
Winning the Champions League is hard. We’ve never done it and we’re a club who has won almost anything you can win in football, often multiple times, so whilst it’s always interesting to see who we’ll get in the Group Stages of the Champions League, it didn’t really bother me too much.
The truth is, we’ve […]
