There are some universal truths in life: death, taxes and Burnley fans booing something an opposition player does even though he was in fact probably fouled. And Burnley's fans are the booiest fans you'll ever see. If there was a sweepstake on the first minute at which the Burnley fans would boo Arsenal today, I [...]

Morning folks and welcome to Tuesday. Well, what do we have right now then, in terms of Arsenal news, eh? It always goes a little quiet after a win like this and the introspection and teeth gnashing stops a little, or at least slows down, so it's nice having a little look around the internet [...]

Morning folks and happy Monday and all that jazz. You doing alright? I woke up at about 5am this morning and it took me about 30 minutes to drift back off to sleep. Why? The  Top Four. Yep, that's right, I couldn't get back to sleep because I was thinking about the chances of Arsenal [...]

Winning football matches is hella fun. I like it. I like it indeed. And although at the time I felt moments of frustration, this was very much one of those days in which I look back at the game and realise that actually Arsenal played quite well. In fact you'd say the 1-0 scoreline probably [...]

It's matchday people!! Whoop! And it feels like more of a 'whoop' because it feels like the international break has enabled a lot of people I speak to, to think about today as the 'new' start of the season. The Brentford game had unfortunate circumstances. The Chelski and Man City games were always going to [...]

Morning party people, happy Friday! Let's hope that this weekend might bring that most precious of things: goals and three points to The Arsenal! I don't know why I'm starting off today's blog with such unbridled positivity, because I've woken up at 5.15am and I feel absolutely shattered. Plus there's a leaving party at my [...]

Morning y’all, hope y’all are fine and dandy and living your best lives on this Tuesday morn? It was over a week of sun in the south of Portugal for me and although I had access to my computer and the internet, I’ll be completely honest with you, I just couldn’t be bothered with it [...]

No messing around from Arteta yesterday, was there? What I mean by that was he dropped a press conference in the morning following what will have been a late night on the Wednesday. I left pretty much after the final whistle on Wednesday and I got home at half 12, so they must have got [...]

Football is hella fun when you win football matches. And score goals. Lots of goals. And last night we did just that. A game in which all six goals came from The Arsenal and in which some vital confidence will have been restored for some of those players. I get it though. I get the [...]

It seems like there apears to be some movement in the departure lounge at London Colney. Over the last 48 hours we've heard stories about Palace wanting Nketiah for £10million, Fiorentina wanting Torreira for €1.5million loan deal and €15million option to buy at the end of next season, as well as...drumroll...Corinthians wanting Willian on a [...]
