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 [...]

Greed has a new name: The European Super League

This should have been a post match review of our poor performance against Fulham yesterday. I should be bemoaning the application of VAR and a penalty in which I don't think Gabriel even touched the Fulham player who went down in the Arsenal box like a sack of spuds. We should lament the fact that [...]

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, [...]

European Super League will end football as we know it

I was having a read of the always excellent 7amkickoff's blog yesterday. I don't read lots of blogs (not even my own! But you could probably tell that given the typos sometimes ;-) ) but occasionally check in on some and this one intrigued me because it was about the possibility of the UEFA Super [...]

Does Arteta’s free pass run out in the summer?

Morning folks and welcome to this Tuesday ahead of another dreaded international break, colloquially known by so many of us Gooners as the dreaded 'interlull'. And after the madness of the football last weekend with the draw away to West Ham, it feels like quite the come down to have to endure a solid 11 [...]

I don’t want to be burned in a European cup final again

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, [...]

The fear of the North London Derby

Here we are. The worst day in our football calendar in my opinion: North London Derrby Day at home. I hate it. There's just so much always riding on this one, the nerves are heightened and - despite there being no fans in the stadium and therefore home advantage is pretty much negated - it [...]

Be aggressive and go for goals against Olympiakos

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 - [...]

Normal football is on the horizon again!

Today feels like it should be a good day. I've woken up to the sun shining here in London, birds tweeting, as well as a bit more of a clearer indication as to when some normality returns to life again in England. Yesterday the Prime Minister made his statement about when he thinks the country [...]
