It's finally a Premier League match day again for The Arsenal and I've got that usual feeling of butterflies in the stomach that occur in the morning of a game. All week I've been thinking about Brentford, I've listened to podcast previews, I've ruminated on how the match might unfold and in my head I've [...]

It's a particularly bitter pill to swallow this morning, when thinking about the events that unfolded at Old Trafford yesterday. once again we went up there, once again we were the better team, once again we come back with nothing. The Old Trafford league hoodoo continues and when we next get the chance to go [...]

Might be a bit of a short one today as I need to head off to London to do a spot of shopping and meet a few friends for lunch and I'm running a little late, but I wanted to pen some pre-United match thoughts on here before I toddle off. Firstly, having watched some [...]

Howdy all and hope you’re in a fine mood on this fabulous Sunday? I’m not going to mug you off here; I’m not going tell you that yesterday was the most rosiest of days for me as an Arsenal but, then again, I know you too feel the same - that was bloody uncomfortable at [...]

Start fast Arsenal, Fulham are no mugs

Starting today’s blog the night before, as I’ve got an early start tomorrow/today because of a cousin who decided a 7am tee time was an acceptable approach to a round of golf on a Saturday morning. He’s a Spurs fan too, which probably explains it: they are all completely mentally unhinged. Anyway, as I say, [...]

Arsenal to show a newly promoted side they are a different beast today?

Morning folks and happy match day to you. Well, hopefully it's a happy match day, because let's face it, if Arsenal lose today we'll all be grumpy as sin come full time, quite unbearable for our partners or family and generally have a crappy rest of the Saturday. So it's a 'happy match day' until [...]

Morning folks, how are we all doing today then, eh? Feeling chipper ahead of the weekend action against Bournemouth? Little 'Scotty' Parker seemed to be in good spirits, as he had his press conference yesterday and said some lovely things about Mikel Arteta and his team for this season. He talked about how he thinks [...]

How quietly confident can Arsenal be against a tricky Leicester side?

Match day! Before I go in to the nuances of the game today, as well as Mikel Arteta's press conference yesterday, please allow me to indulge in a bit of smugness, having spent an hour in Alan Smith's presence last night for the Same Old Arsenal podcast yesterday evening. We talked about a wealth of [...]

Morning Gooners, how we all doing today? How we feeling? Counting down the seconds until the first home game of the season? I know I am. Blistering heat, a home match where the atmosphere will be amazing, it'll be one heck of a day - I hope - spoiled only by a Jamie Vardy dive [...]

Morning folks, happy Saturday and all that jazz. Much nicer to face an entire weekend knowing that The Arsenal did their job early, eh? It meant I could look at the games yesterday with a little more of a shrug than I would have done if we'd have drawn or lost. Okay, I see that [...]
