England (and mainly Saka) make me feel…proud??

Morning all and happy Thursday to you and yours. Last night I sat and watched the England v Denmark game and for the first time in my lifetime the country of my birthday is in a major international football tournament. And this morning I’m realising just how big that is. 55 years have elapsed since [...]

Happy Thursday folks! Hope you are doing well? Bit weird with no football on for two consecutive days, isn't it? I had to make do with Wimbledon last night and Andy Murray scraping through against a guy who had basically never played tournament tennis, or something like that. He was decent though and made Murray [...]

Liking England for the first time in 30 years

I love that I have a surrogate team for international competitions. I am proud that I've got a little bit of German heritage in me and that when all else fails, usually, I can at least trust on that little bit of Deutsch in mein blut to keep international tournaments interesting through the years. Not [...]

Football can be hella fun sometimes, can't it? I thought yesterday's games would be decent given the standard of the respective oppositions, but I didn't expect there to be an absolute thunderstorm of goals yesterday, for which I and I'm sure you were grateful for. In the first game we saw shocking howlers (Croatia's first [...]

Arsenal should ignore Inter if they mess around with Hector deal

The football is starting to get interesting now, eh? Last night we had the Netherlands being knocked out to the Czech Republic, whilst Portugal were exited from the competition at the hands of the Belgians. In the latter of those two games you'd say that it was a compelling game with two decent and well [...]

KT contract is great; if only we had one on the right…

The Euro’s got back underway last night and I watched Wales get smashed up by an impressive Danish team and thought “Wales aren’t that good really, are they?” I don’t know whether it’s because they are one of the home nations, or because they’ve got the likes of Bale and Ramsey in their side, but [...]

Is Ben White Arteta’s Monreal/Wenger signing?

Morning folks and welcome to Friday! Yesterday was the first day in which we didn't get any football and tonight it is the same, as the round of 16 games don't start until tomorrow and I have to say, I always find it a little sad. In some ways the group stages are the best [...]

More friendlies? Arteta needing to condition his players within an inch of their lives, perhaps?

I was at an anniversary meal with The Management last night, so couldn't watch the England game, but apparently Saka started, starred, got man of the match and the press are now saying he should surely be a shoe-in to start in the next round. Catch up guys, us Gooners have known Saka is mustard [...]
