In this – quite frankly mad – season, it seems strange that with us eight points from the top of the league, there still remains hope. But Leicester’s win at the Etihad has done exactly that, strangely, because if it was City, Chelski or United that had just established such an assailable lead, we would […]
This fixture has become the one in which more frustration exists than ever before and it’s been like that over the last ten years or so because it doesn’t matter in what position the two teams are in, Chelski usually come out on top, or at least without defeat. It doesn’t matter if they’re flying high […]
Good ol’ Arsène and his day early pressers. He’s enabled me to talk about the game ahead on Sunday a day early, which is great, because I’ve been dying to sink my teeth in to it. Well, I have been and still am, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be absolutely bricking it come Sunday.
Celebrating Nacho’s contract renewal this week was clearly not enough for the Arsenal fraternity, because we’ve got another ‘congratulations’ that took place yesterday, as Theo Walcott hit ten years with The Arsenal.
You can say what you like about Theo’s performances during his tenure – and many do – but you can’t deny that in the […]
I wonder if there was a conversation between Theo and Arsène, before Walcott talked up the teams ‘mental strength’ post Stoke away. It does seem as though that interview was straight out of the Arsenal Wenger handbook on how to talk up your team, so perhaps after ten years in his regular presence, Le Boss’ […]
As the final whistle went yesterday, with Arsenal securing a point at The Britannia, it was hard for me to properly assess how I felt about the result. On the face of it it was a hard-fought point. It was more than City got against the Orcs and sees us go back to the top […]
Stoke away is up there as one of those ‘least desirable’ fixtures I look for at the beginning of the season. If I was given the choice, I’d probably want it to appear at the start of each season, so it can be just got out of the way. A bit like ripping of a […]
Today is one of those days where I spend my Saturday semi-supporting other teams, with Arsenal playing tomorrow, because I have some sort of weird theory in my head that if at least one team in the top four drop points, then that’s a positive for Arsenal.
The reality is probably that we need to see […]
Having not watched the game last night due to the celebration of The Management’s birthday, it’s interesting for me to see the overall context of a point at Anfield, in comparison to those I follow online or the narrative of the oft biased Liverpool-favouring media. Many Arsenal fans seemed to be virtually throwing their hands […]
There were plenty of people scoffing yesterday at Liverpool’s loan deal for Steven Caulker, but as an Arsenal fan whose seen plenty of goals conceded to the unlikeliest of candidates, I was not one of them. Klopp is a very precise man and he knows exactly the type of player who fits in to the […]
