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, [...]

Arteta gets it all wrong again against Slavia Prague

Well folks, the good news is that we aren't out of the Europa League yet, that there is still another leg to go and an opportunity for Arsenal to progress to the semi final of the competition. In itself a 1-1 draw in a two-legged tie isn't the worst thing in the world; you still [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]
