Ahh man....my head hurts...four hours at the pub yesterday afternoon and a tomahawk steak for dinner and I have all the meat sweats and head pains. What I could really do with now is a bit of greasy food and then an Arsenal lunchtime win. I really don't want my brain to hurt more because [...]

Get those Hale Enders on the pitch on Sunday Mikel!

I'm sure there are some morning's where Mikel Arteta wakes up and thinks to himself: "eugh, I have to do a presser today" I bet after comprehensive victories like Thursday night, yesterday was NOT one of those days. So over he must have sped to London Colney to deliver his virtual conference to the assembled [...]

Morale boosting win against Sjeffield United will help Arsenal prep for Slavia

It's snowing in London this morning. Snowing. In mid April. How weird is that? About as weird and unusual as an Arsenal clean sheet these days, so when the final whistle went and it was confirmed that we had beaten the hapless Sheffield United by three goals to nil, I didn't really know what to [...]

Arsenal minds must now be laser focused – no excuses

Morning all. Happy Wednesday to you. It's still a holiday for me as I decided to extend the Easter break, which means I still comprise of about 10% chocolate Easter eggs, 15% booze, then 10% turkey. The rest of me is all the human bits like organs 'n stuff. It's interesting though because when you're [...]

Arteta’s future: I’m becoming a Doubting Thomas

Bit of a provocative title for today's blog, I know, but let me just explain myself a little with my thinking here. Also, what with it being an Easter weekend, I thought I'd go for a variation on a theme... Yesterday after I'd written my usual match review on what transpired in the limp 3-0 [...]

Implosion and regression at the worst time of the season for The Arsenal

Yesterday I wrote that I didn't really feel too fussed about the game, that it didn't really mean anything in the grand scheme of things and in terms of the physical result, I certainly feel the same in the cold light of day today after that abysmal home capitulation against Liverpool last night. But what [...]

Momentum more than points for Arsenal against Liverpool

Morning folks and here we are, finally back to a match day, thank gawd. Only it's a match day in which if we're honest probably doesn't have that much riding on it. Liverpool come to town and despite their poor form, they are still a side to be feared and we are a side who [...]

Lacazette, ESR and Torreira – round up of news from yesterday

Morning all. Here we are at 'Anything but Good' Friday. We may get a day off, but The Management's family tradition is such that we don't have a drink on this day, even though it's just the two of us and the cat who will be enjoying each other's company over this long weekend. No [...]

The recency bias on Aubameyang is a little baffling

If ever you wanted an example as to why I do not watch international football during the season, it's upon hearing the goalscorers for England's game last night were Harry's Maguire and Kane. No thank you. I'm not bringing myself to cheer for one jailbird and b*llock kicker, or one perennial diver who plays for [...]

Aguero at The Arsenal as another stop-gap signing?

Morning folks and welcome to Tuesday. Which is actually more like Wednesday, if you don't count Good Friday as a working day. So it's practically halfway through the week aka Wednesday. Except it's Tuesday. What it also is - sadly - is still international football time and that means for those of us who don't [...]
