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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

The downgrade from Giroud to Lacazette – with proof

Morning folks and welcome to Saturday. Hope you're planning on having a good one. We don't have Arsenal to cock it up for us after all, right? I've woken up this morning feeling a little less pissed off than I was on Thursday night, then Friday, but that poor home draw is still frustrating me, [...]

Arteta gets it all wrong again against Slavia Prague

Well folks, the good news is that we aren't out of the Europa League yet, that there is still another leg to go and an opportunity for Arsenal to progress to the semi final of the competition. In itself a 1-1 draw in a two-legged tie isn't the worst thing in the world; you still [...]

Arteta’s future: I’m becoming a Doubting Thomas

Bit of a provocative title for today's blog, I know, but let me just explain myself a little with my thinking here. Also, what with it being an Easter weekend, I thought I'd go for a variation on a theme... Yesterday after I'd written my usual match review on what transpired in the limp 3-0 [...]

Momentum more than points for Arsenal against Liverpool

Morning folks and here we are, finally back to a match day, thank gawd. Only it's a match day in which if we're honest probably doesn't have that much riding on it. Liverpool come to town and despite their poor form, they are still a side to be feared and we are a side who [...]
