The postponement of football this weekend is the wrong call

I understand that for many people today's topic is a rather controversial one. This weekend's Premier League matches, and indeed all football matches, have been postponed as a mark of respect for the sad passing of Queen Elizabeth II. I have seen online and on TV of how this has impacted people and for some [...]

Morning folks and welcome to Monday. I'll be off to Sam Sebastian in Spain for a long weekend trip with friends, so my hopes by the time we get to this time next week are: Gabriel Jesus might actually have signed for The Arsenal We get a good showing in Germany as the lads travel [...]

Bellerin and Torreira fighting for those moves away from Arsenal

Football is about trophies. But trophies for individuals are about as interesting to me as an all-day Abba and Beyonce concert, so to hear that Messi won his seventh Ballon D'Or last night just reinforced to me the pointlessness of it all. What does that award mean to PSG fans? Or to Barca fans? Are [...]

Football world united in relief for Eriksen

This may well end up being a rather short blog today if I'm honest, because talking about transfer rumours, getting annoyed with the politics of what is going on at Arsenal, bemoaning targets missed or opportunities that go begging, feels a little inconsequential after what happened in yesterday's Denmark vs Finland game. I was in [...]

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 [...]

Arsenal’s little confidence-booster with Community Shield win

We all know it’s a glorified friendly, but yesterday’s penalty shootout victory against Liverpool is still a nice little bonus to start the season and against a team with more prep time and who are clear favourites to win the league again, it was nice to see us competing throughout the game. We were spritely, [...]

Coronavirus throws the whole season up into question, not just tonight’s game.

I have to admit I’ve been pretty blasé about the whole Coronavirus stuff. I mean I’ve washed my hands rigorously and many times a day, I use that alcohol gel wherever I go, following all the guidelines, etc. But as long as it’s been minimal cases in the UK and we’ve still had our sporting [...]

Iwobi centrally? Koscielny offski? Who’s impressed at Borehamwood?

Been heading out for some sun, sea and plenty of white wine Douro so haven't been able to blog as much over the last few days, but given that there seems to have been the square root of bigger all happening with The Arsenal I guess I haven't really missed much. I saw Iwobi got [...]

Online fan abuse gone too far?

Morning folks. Can we extend a bit of a 'thanks' to both Man City and Chelski for yesterday's 6-0 win for the current champions, because: It brought our goal difference with Chelski back to the same level having been a few behind them after their 5-0 hammering of Huddersfield last weekend It poured water on [...]
