Do I even like football any more without The Arsenal?

Morning folks. Hope you are well. The European Super League stuff keeps rumbling on and I suspect will do for quite some time. I can't speak to anybody else, but it has left me feeling quite hollow, I have to say. I started the first iteration of this daily blog in August 2011. I remember [...]

Greed has a new name: The European Super League

This should have been a post match review of our poor performance against Fulham yesterday. I should be bemoaning the application of VAR and a penalty in which I don't think Gabriel even touched the Fulham player who went down in the Arsenal box like a sack of spuds. We should lament the fact that [...]

Surround Lacazette with pace and punish Fulham in transition

Ahh man....my head hurts...four hours at the pub yesterday afternoon and a tomahawk steak for dinner and I have all the meat sweats and head pains. What I could really do with now is a bit of greasy food and then an Arsenal lunchtime win. I really don't want my brain to hurt more because [...]

Get those Hale Enders on the pitch on Sunday Mikel!

I'm sure there are some morning's where Mikel Arteta wakes up and thinks to himself: "eugh, I have to do a presser today" I bet after comprehensive victories like Thursday night, yesterday was NOT one of those days. So over he must have sped to London Colney to deliver his virtual conference to the assembled [...]

Imperious Arsenal batter Slavia

Now THAT'S more like it, eh? That's more like an Arsenal performance that we can all get behind, appreciate and generally feel more positive as this dreadful season draws to a close, as Arsenal ran away 4-0 winners against a team who before the game had basically been proven by UEFA to be wrong in [...]

Slavia Prague away: win or bust for Arteta’s Arsenal

Well now folks, this is it, pretty much, for this season, by my reckoning. Fail to perform tonight hand get a win (or a high scoring draw) and Arsenal go out to a team who have just had it confirmed that they have a racist captain and who never really offered much at The Emirates [...]

The fear I have if we have our young connectors out against Slavia Prague

And now we play the waiting game....That game of course is every Arsenal fan collectively holding our breaths as we wait patiently for either the club, or Arteta, to give us an idea on who is fit and who isn't ahead of a massive game against Slavia Prague tomorrow night. He'll have to tell us [...]

Arteta needs to be rolling the substitutes dice better

Isn't it just the most 'Arsenal' thing ever to have a fully fit squad a month or so ago, yet here we are approaching crunch time, when things are decided and shiny silver trinkets are to be won, with players dropping like flies. After the game on Sunday evening Arteta gave a brief update and [...]

Morale boosting win against Sjeffield United will help Arsenal prep for Slavia

It's snowing in London this morning. Snowing. In mid April. How weird is that? About as weird and unusual as an Arsenal clean sheet these days, so when the final whistle went and it was confirmed that we had beaten the hapless Sheffield United by three goals to nil, I didn't really know what to [...]

Evade a high press against Sheffield United and don’t hoof long, Arsenal

In the grand scheme of things the result tonight probably doesn't really matter too much against Sheffield United. Of course we want to win, but winning will neither cement a position in a part of the league we want to be at, nor will it enable us to climb the league to any significant amount. [...]
