Dreaming of 97/98? Don’t get too excited…yet…Plus Saliba & Buendia chat

I didn't bother to watch any football yesterday (no Arsenal, no bother) but at 10pm last night as the news was on I thought I'd have a flick through my Twitter feed. And blow me down if I don't see a load of Arsenal fans talking about the 1997/98 run that won us the league. [...]

The Saliba situation is worrying beyond the player himself

Morning folks. Hope you're all good where you are? For me it's back to work and whilst the scenery doesn't change much - desk jockey working from home for the foreseeable future - the lack of booze and late get ups does, so I'm a wee bit groggy this morning, I must confess. Perhaps that's [...]

Morning Gooners and welcome to the first Saturday of 2021 and blow me down if it isn't a Saturday match day for us. We've had so many Sunday's as a result of cup competitions and the Europa League, that playing on a Saturday feels like a novelty. Alright, it may be an 8pm kick off [...]

Brighton away: Not vintage, but confidence restoring for The Arsenal

You know the phrase "the ends justify the means"? Well, having seen Arsenal look a little laboured yesterday, but ultimately pick up three points away to Brighton yesterday in the Premier League, I feel like that phrase aptly describes our overall performance yesterday evening on the south coast. That's because Arsenal's performance was hardly the [...]

Arsenal must break the Brighton hoodoo

Welcome to another match day folks and this, I have to say, has always been a frustrating one for me. Brighton and Hove Albion entertain us at 6pm on their turf and it’s been quite an unhappy hunting ground for us recently. Last season they shafted us in the last minute with a sucker punch [...]

The players Edu must be talking to in January about signing

The volume of games might be coming thick and fast, but so too appear the rumours of who we might be after when the window opens in four days time. Do we all have the energy for it though? In the last few months a lot of the joy was sucked out of my football [...]

Arsenal’s youthful energy secures the points at home to Chelsea

Holy moly I’d forgotten just how good winning feels like. having spent the last three months watching Arsenal lurch from one defeat to the next, it felt like this barren run of dreadful performances was going to go on forever, but last night we were treated to a totally different Arsenal performance to the ones [...]
