Do Arsenal fans just always need to be divided?

OK I'm officially getting bored of the Ozil stuff now. I had a couple of flicks through my timeline yesterday and that's all that was being talked about. Honestly, I think people spent more time talking about the than when we won one pot the recent FA Cups a few year's back. I guess that's [...]

Awkward Arsenal still unconvincing despite needed win against Huddersfield

Rule number one for any football fan is to win the match. In the late eighties and early nineties other teams mocked 'boring boring Arsenal' but we didn't care. We made defending an art form. When we went one nil up we were like an Italian side who were rarely broken at our peak. And [...]

Morning all. I must admit I didn't actually go to the game last night and when I checked my phone after i'd finished what I was doing in the evening, I feel like I dodged a bit of a bullet, because it was a familiar story against United on our home soil. It's what happens [...]

Jekyll and Hyde Arsenal do the business against Chelsea

I love it the day after a big game win comes around and yesterday's 2-0 victory over Chelski really perked us up after a week or two of some pretty sad looking Arsenal faces everywhere. Uni Emery has faced his first bit of questioning from fans in recent weeks and the disappointment over the omission [...]

Happy Sunday folks. Hope all is well with you lot? For me it was a day off from blogging yesterday, on account of it be a Christmas party on Friday, but back in the saddle today, hoping the boys are up for it and we can get ourselves three points against Southampton this lunchtime. It [...]

Focus, concentration and not underestimating Huddersfield: Arsenal know what to do

Huddersfield at home is our third game in a week and represents an opportunity to continue this positive countdown to Christmas with a win and to keep the good momentum going. It'll also ensure that confidence remains high at a time in which we've had a few injuries over the last few weeks and some [...]

Ahh man am I hanging this morning. Like, PROPER hanging, which is what booze will do to you. A LOT of booze. But what always sobers the mind is an Arsenal game and so as I hazily stab at my MacBook this morning (as I start today's blog it is technically morning, what with there being [...]

We can be hurt by Liverpool, but we can also hurt

I've been struggling in my mind to make a case for us all week for this game, in an effort to try and manage my own expectations and forgive me - dear friends - if this blog comes across as a little too apprehensive, but I am not looking forward to this game one little [...]

High pres versus high press: Chelsea v Arsenal preview

Saturday is football and football is Saturday. I love it when The Arsenal play on a Saturday (even if the actual kick off time is rubbish). It feels right and proper. And what with this being the first Saturday of the season it feels extra exciting. I have that nervous butterflies in the stomach feeling [...]

The Arsenal purge begins

Flipping heck, I'm sure we were all expecting a bit of change at Arsenal when Arsene Wenger had moved on, but did any of us expect the type of noises that came out yesterday re: some of the coaching staff, to be so swift and decisive? It was like Arsenal's very own version of Night [...]
