Captains are club custodians – that’s it – learn from Arsenal, England

Honestly, have you ever seen as much fuss being made, as the whole 'Wayne Rooney dropped' saga that's being played out in the media. I don't remember any other captain getting the same level of treatment and attention when they were no longer England captain. It's just, well, weird if you ask me. He's 30 [...]

Be nice to get ‘access-all-areas’ on deals

Thursday afternoon drinking seems like a good idea at the time, but when you wake up on the Friday to make the hour-long commute on public transportation, you realise that it's probably not the best idea in the world. Still, it is Friday, the weekend is upon us and although there is no Arsenal to [...]

It ACTUALLY did happen again…

In this season of the bizarre and ridiculous, perhaps it was most fitting that on the final day an Arsenal team all had written off as quite poor, took one final step upwards in the league to leapfrog the Spuds by hammering Villa. In return, Newcastle decided to finally show up for their fans, giving [...]

A new midfield style to be forged in final three games?

Yesterday Arsene gave an update on the players available at the weekend and wouldn't you know it, for the first time since the end of last season, everyone suddenly seems fully fit. Isn't that just the most Arsenal news of all time? Three matches before the end of the season, when everything is done and [...]

Mesut’s ‘wellbeing’ physio; the increasingly redundant role of a captain

Not that we ever needed to be given a clear indication of the bromance between Mesut and the Flamster, but we got treated to 'exhibit A' on the official site yesterday, with Özil waxing lyrical about his partner in crime. Specifically, about his performance and two goals against the Spuds, which were both beauts you [...]

The benefits of a confident squad – not just first XI

There's no time for basking in victory right now, the games are coming thick and fast and tomorrow night the team will look to make it three wins in a row by trying to overcome Olympiakos. I must say I do love it when Arsenal play so often, but it doesn't leave you much room [...]

How do Arsenal unwrap the ‘surprise package’ Leicester?

I really hope the team are riding high today after Wednesday's North London Derby victory. Today is the last of our back-to-back-to-back-to-back away games and a win today feels like it could be really splendid, don't you know.  A win today means we go into the midweek game on another high and then if we [...]

Time flies for Arteta, who needs games to show he’s still got it

Doesn't time fly when you're having fun, eh? This particular phrase has definitely struck a chord with me this morning, as I find myself back on the Metropolitan line train and slowly ambling myself towards my grey prison in central London for my first day back to work after a break in the sun. I [...]

Relief that The Arsenal are underway, with dominant display

I am a completely irrational football fan. Specifically, I am a complete irrational Arsenal football fan and if I'm completely honest, after the first weekend of football I was dreading anything but a positive outcome from yesterday's game against Crystal Palace.  That in itself doesn't sound too irrational to you, I'm sure, but when I [...]
