I've calmed down a little bit from my initial rage at the final whistle last night. Calmed down, but still not completely calm, because that last moment of the game should have, I think, been a penalty on Bukayo Saka. Let me show my workings here on how I get this conclusion: Neuer makes clear [...]

So, we're done with this frigging pointless friendlies and, as suspected Gareth Southgate kept Declan Rice on the pitch for the full 96 minutes last night. I flicked on and awatched about 10 minutes of the first half as I was cooking to see Pickford have a howler, then I heard about Lewis Dunk's howler, [...]

It just had to be bloody Bayern Munich, didn't it, eh? On Thursday I wrote about my preference about who I'd like to see us play in the quarter-final and on that list Bayern finished fifth out of eight, so it almost felt inevitable that we were going to get one of the toughest opponents [...]

Big one tonight lads and lasses. It's a second leg Champions League tie against FC Porto and Arsenal have a one goal deficit that they need to overcome if there is to be more Champions League football played at The Emirates this season. Mikel Arteta and his players know exactly what is needed and they [...]

Profligate Arsenal come unstuck at Villa

That one was a tough one to take yesterday, because as Arteta put it after the game, we were the better team and should have put the ball in the back of the net. We knew what we would get last night. Under the lights, on TV, Villa playing well at home and currently on [...]

Good for Martin, bad for Jesus, terrible from PGMOL

Morning folks and welcome to Tuesday, which will probably be the last of the regularly released rambling utterances from yours truly on here, because in about 13 hours from writing this I'm off to New Zealand for a few weeks. I'll try to get a few blogs and thoughts penned in during that time, but [...]

Morning all and welcome to Friday. We're just over 24 hours until we take to the field against Burnley and we'll hear from Mikel at some stage today about the team news for this one and I'm sure he'll be asked about the fitness of a certain Thomas Partey, with whom the noises are now [...]

Arsenal come out swinging – and it’s right

Morning all. No better place to start today than to chew the fat over the club statement that was released by Arsenal on the official website in the aftermath of the game at St James' Park on Saturday evening. You can read it here if you haven't already done so. The club have backed the [...]
