Arsenal roll back the years in routine Champions League opener

Well that was like rolling back the years last night, wasn't it? What I mean by that is that it was Arsenal back in the Champions League, the music blaring, the light show, but also, the kind of performance we used to routinely take for granted. That felt like the kind of game that we [...]

The long wait has ended – will Arsenal respond in the Champions League

We’ve waited for this match day for a long time, haven’t we, eh? Arsenal back in the Champions League. It’s a place that for so many years we took for granted and I seem to recall all those years ago (probably around this time seven years ago) thinking (and maybe writing but I can't be [...]

Arteta keeping everyone – including the ‘keepers – fresh and on their toes?

Howdy Gooners, how we all doing today? It's a pretty grey and grim looking one in London at the moment; almost as if the decision has been made that "that's it. You've had your little taste of summer and now I'm going to remind you just where in the world you live" or something like [...]

A deserved win and a monkey off the back at Everton

I hope like me you too are very happy to get that monkey off of our back in the shape of the Everton hoodoo. It had been on there far too long, had resulted in far too many crazy results and, up until we scored in the second half, was really starting to feel like [...]

Happy match day Gooners, hope we're all holding up well? It's the return to an unhappy hunting ground in recent years, as we take on Sean Dyche's Everton and for a team who hasn't exactly been one of the leading lights in the Premier League for many years, they have a surprisingly (and annoyingly) good [...]

What does change at the top mean for The Arsenal?

Interesting old development that came out yesterday regarding Vinai Venkatesham leaving Arsenal in the summer of next year, eh? I don't normally concern myself with the boardroom stuff as I'm not sure that it really matters too much in terms of the immediate future on the pitch and I don't tend to think about Arsenal [...]

How do Arsenal overcome the Everton hoodoo?

I suspect this might be a short one today, as all is quiet and the calm before the content storm pre Everton starts to envelope us from tomorrow with Mikel's press conference probably happen at some stage then. But as we hurtle towards the weekend, thoughts turn to the away day trip to Everton for [...]

Clean bill of health for Arsenal’s international stars?

Morning you lovely lot. Happy Wednesday from a tired Gooner hurtling his way towards central London on the Metropolitan Line for an all day strategy session. Could life get any more exciting, eh? Still, at least I'm not in Harry Maguire's position, because he can't get anything right, eh? I mean don't get me wrong, [...]

Gabriel seems fine (phew), but it lays out the defensive tightrope we could be walking

We're nearly there folks...closing down on exiting this interminable international break and we can get our focus back to Everton on Sunday, which will be a tough trip as it always is for us, having not won there in what feels like a bazillion years. Hopefully we'll also have the benefit of having Gabriel back [...]

Odegaard’s new deal is another ‘essential’ for The Arsenal

Morning folks, hope we're all good? I've woken up this morning feeling mega fatigued. It's probably wine-induced, coupled with doing very little this weekend other than sitting in the paddling pool, so my body feels as though it has been set a precedent where anything else other than horizontal living in the sun is acceptable, [...]
