Morning folks and welcome to Saturday, with an early kick off and an opportunity for Arsenal to try to banish the bad taste of last weekend's battering at the hands of Liverpool. Newcastle are bottom of the league, haven't won a game yet, don't have a great record against us at the Emirates and last [...]

Arsenal: A true meritocracy?

Very rarely do I write my blog title each day before I actually start typing my usual daily thoughts. Normally I just spill out on to the virtual page a selection of what I'm thinking about, then I try to put some kind of link between the headline and the waffle I've just written. But [...]

Now we see what this Arsenal are made of

I was feeling a little ropey yesterday and so when I thought about sitting down at my laptop and tapping away in my office about what happened on Saturday night away to Liverpool, I just didn't really have the desire or energy to muster up any kind of thoughts. What also helped my overarching desire [...]

England like it, they like it, they like it….oooh, oooh…here we gooooo….

Morning Gooners, did you all watch the mauling of the San Marino Minnows yesterday by England, eh? I have to tell you, I experienced  a wide range of emotions yesterday, whilst watching England smash the worst team in the FIFA World Rankings: Joy at the fact we had three Arsenal lads starting for the first [...]

Solving international break problems; hoping Arsenal’s summer is being solved now

Ahh man, isn't this international break just the worst, eh? I don't know what it is about this particular one, but it feels like it is properly dragging on to me. It's only Thursday. We have ANOTHER week of this. Plus the warm glow of victory is starting to wear off, yet the dull ache [...]

Arsenal’s solid foundations help the win over Watford

As I exited the ground yesterday with the three points secured, I asked my Dad to reflect on the game and the performance and he said 'it was a funny old game, wasn't it?'. Indeed it was Pa, indeed it was. Arsenal controlled possession, scored goals, had big chances in the form of a penalty, [...]

Watford to mirror Arsenal’s formation, so we must step up

This'll be a quick one today as I'm off to have a pre match meal with the family in Islington before the old man and I make our way to the game. Watford at home in the old days - like six or seven years ago - would be one in which you'd be wondering [...]

Arteta still learning

I watched the 30 minute video on Mikel Arteta this morning. He talked a lot about 'unity' and his time so far as he approaches 100 games tomorrow and I thought it was a nice piece from Amy Lawrence who interviewed him. I'm losing track about the number of times I've said how strong his [...]

Building Arsenal’s nucleus with more time at London Colney

I often wonder how much of a 'football fan' I actually am you know. I mean, I'm a die-hard Arsenal fan and birthdays, special occasions and holidays are often navigated around based on the football calendar, but football fan? Not so much. Take this round of midweek action currently going on. Not watched a single second of it. No [...]

The Arsenal worrier and his ‘worry wall’

Antonio Conte to the Scum, Unai Emery to the new Geordie Oil Whores, what is happening right now? What weird twilight zone have we fallen in to that sees this collective of randomness occur? In fairness Conte has hedged his bets with an 18-month contract and you have to hope that is fails dismally and [...]
