I didn't manage to catch the training pictures from 29th that the club released, so had a little look this morning, as I pondered to myself why on earth I give a monkeys about seeing players doing their shuttle runs at London Colney more now than I ever have before. Then it dawned on me: [...]

Some days writing about The Arsenal feels like a proper chore. I've been - broadly speaking - writing about Arsenal for 13 years and so it has become habitual, which means I really do have to drag my carcass to the laptop and at this time of the year with over-indulgence a daily occurrence, it [...]

It’s match day and a Boxing Day one in which Arsenal face a struggling Norwich side who currently sit bottom of the league having picked up two wins and four draws all season. They have found it struggling even since Dean Smith took over and even have a fair few injury and COVID problems today, [...]

Well now, isn't it nice to start the week run up to Christmas knowing that whatever happens, The Arsenal will be fourth on Christmas Day. We may not stay there, we may fall away and have a shocker of a Christmas period between now and the new year, but as it stands we can smile [...]

Morning all and welcome to Friday. Hope you're all feeling good? I had to take the first of my lateral flow 'countdown to Christmas' tests this morning. I didn't go to West Ham on Wednesday because I didn't want to risk it, plus the fact I was in the Tollington on Saturday and it was [...]

That's what we had yesterday evening and I tell you what; I slept sound as a baby last night. Compared to the Everton performance where I tossed and turned all evening, last night was [...]

In classic 'Curse of Chris' fashion after saying yesterday that Arsenal, Arteta and Aubameyang needed to sort out the situation between them quickly and quietly, it all blew up yesterday, didn't it? We got the confirmation that Aubameyang would not be captain, that he would not be available for the game against West Ham, plus [...]

Well now, isn't that more like it, eh? The Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde football side turned up once again and we saw what a difference it makes for Arsenal if we are at home compared to away. With the home fans roaring the team on we got our first game of the season that [...]
