Match day is here and it is European football again for us this evening, although hopefully not for the last time this season, as we would like safe passage to the quarter finals please, footballing gods. We take a more commanding lead into this game compared to the same fixture against Olympiakos last season, but [...]

Morning folks. How is it Wednesday already? It's like life is flashing before our very eyes, eh? I guess the upside is that we're getting closer to being able to go back to normality from a global pandemic situation. Plus from an Arsenal side we also step closer towards the end of this wretched season, [...]

‘Routine victory’ not in Arsenal vocab

My my my. We really are something, aren't we, eh? Clock ticking down, time running out, 11 minutes plus stoppage time to turn what would have been a disappointing draw away to Olympiakos in Athens and up steps forward two unlikely goalscorers with two super goals to put us in control of this two-legged tie. [...]

Morning folks and welcome to another match day, only this one is a definite match day with a lot more riding on it than most, as we face up against Olympiakos in Athens this evening. It is not only a familiar ground - having played there as our 'home' game in the last round - [...]

Morning folks and welcome to the middle of the week again. The countdown to our next set of season-defining fixtures is well and truly upon us and tomorrow evening we find out if we are a step closer to glory, in the grey area of "who knows?", or staring down the barrel of another season [...]

Top Four, VAR and Balogun: all a bit too much

Happy Friday to you and your kin. I hope you are feeling fantabulous? More fantabulous than me no doubt, whose feline friend has discovered how to open does and so has taken to jumping on mine and The Management's bed at 5.30am in the morning to say 'hi'. But such is life, we just have [...]

Saka the saviour as Auba and Arsenal profit from our talented wonderkid

Oh Arsenal, you do make me age, quite significantly I can tell you. With just over an hour gone I had come to the grim acceptance that our season was effectively over before March had even begun. We were down 2-1 to Benfica, 3-2 on aggregate, needing another two goals in the game to put [...]

So here we are folks. This will either be the latest in a number of important match days for Mikel Arteta and his Arsenal team this season, or it will be the last meaningful match day for Arsenal, as we take on Olympiak......sorry....Benfica....in Athens to progress to the next stage of the Europa League and [...]

All eggs in Europa: Tomorrow night is season defining for The Arsenal

Ok I'm going to just go ahead and say it this morning: Anyone else have some slight regrets over the departure of Olivier Giroud? After he exited in that January window we signed Aubameyang. I don't think there was a single Arsenal fan who thought we now didn't have an upgraded attack with Aubameyang joining [...]
