So now we know...Arsenal's hand has been played and the extent to which we have absentees has been laid bare, as the club confirmed yesterday afternoon that they've applied to the Premier League for a postponement of the match on Sunday against The Scum. Mikel Arteta spoke to the Arsenal website in the morning and [...]

For the second time in four years Arsenal travelled to the City Ground to play Championship Nottingham Forest in the third round of the FA Cup and for the second time in four years Arsenal's FA Cup run was halted as quickly as it began in ignominious fashion as we were knocked out to a [...]

Transparency in football is gone; from the EFL to FA…

We should be playing the first of a two-legged semi final in the League Cup against Liverpool this evening. But for reasons that - as I mentioned yesterday - are increasingly murky, it has been postponed to 20th January, in two week's from today. The EFL - chaired by Merseyside-born former Liverpool Chairman Rick Parry [...]

The integrity of the League Cup and EFL is now in the spotlight – Arsenal v Liverpool

Morning folks and welcome to Wednesday. I started back up with my work yesterday and although I enjoy my job, there's nothing worse than that first day back and remembering you can't just eat, drink and be merry all the time like over the Christmas period. But the upside of this first week back for [...]

Arsenal looking good against Man City, VAR and referees less so

I have a whole plethora of mixed emotions this morning. Yesterday's game against Man City was one that I thought to myself was a free hit, I just wanted us to compete, but what we got was an Arsenal team that not only competed, but I thought dominated Man City for two-thirds of a football [...]

COVID, injuries and refs: a little more equality and transparency needed

By |2021-12-28T09:28:15+00:00December 28th, 2021|Arsenal, Arsenal FC, injuries, premier league, Rant|0 Comments

There's nothing more irritating to a football  fan than a perceived lack of transparency and equity in the game. As Arsenal fans we have felt it with situations like the Godfrey stamp on Tomiyasu, or the McArther boot of Saka in the Palace game at The Emirates. I have spoken of that feeling of a [...]

Arteta’s balancing act for Christmas

So it seems we are now playing the waiting game when it comes to our Boxing Day fixture. Two games were called off yesterday, including Wolves’ match against Leeds and that means Wolves will have had a full nine days rest between their 0-0 draw against Chelski on 19th and when they play us. Hardly [...]

The Premier League have set a COVID precedent with Arsenal v Brentford. They must be consistent.

I don't like talking about them, but upon hearing the news that Tottenham are on the verge of having their games against Rennes and Brighton potentially postponed due to the outbreak of COVID cases that is in their camp, I can't help but feel incredibly frustrated and aggrieved. It feels like there is one rule for [...]

What ‘process’ are we trusting again, Arsenal?

Last night's shambolic Arsenal performance was a massive alarm bell for me. It was an appalling indictment of all the things Arteta and his Arsenal team have got wrong and although we went through a good run of form before the last international break, that is looking more and more like an outlier in the [...]

Old Trafford disapppintment again for the Arsenal, as usual

There were United fans crying about the first Arsenal goal last night, bleating on about injustice, fair play and all of that nonsense. I'll tell you what injustice is; going to Old Trafford, being the better team for most of the match, then coming away with nothing. That's how I am feeling this morning and [...]
