Happy Saturday and welcome to the first day of the season, albeit without any Arsenal, although that's ok, right? I mean, it allows us to take some sides by cheering on the teams of those that we perceive are the nearest rivals, so at least that's something.  So today you and I will be temporary [...]

We’ll miss the wit when it’s gone

I'm not overly religious or 'owt, but whoever decided to call it 'Good Friday' were clearly being ironic, because there ain't much 'Good' about it in normal circumstances. The Management's whole family are Catholic, so today is the one day in the year in which no booze can be had, nor meat. For a man [...]

Football’s bubble can help in times of worry

Talking about football after people have lost their lives under a terrorist regimes faux 'holy war' seems a little trivial this morning. Last night I watched the BBC News at Ten and held my wife a little closer, hoping that the frequency of these types of cowardly attacks does not increase across Europe, because innocent [...]

A couple of Arsenal brain-farts end the tie; now focus must shift domestically

By |2017-05-19T20:11:15+01:00February 24th, 2016|Uncategorised|1 Comment

In many ways I am your archetypal football fan, in that I'll wax exceedingly lyrical over my team when they win, yet when they are defeated I often find myself chastising the players and the manager for their performance. But today I find myself ill at ease, because I've got both emotions to show from [...]

No ifs, no buts, just three points please, Arsenal

Quite simply, this is a game in which Arsenal have to win, if we truly believe we have any shot at the title. Everyone's allowed a blip, it happens, but when the blip turns into a tidal wave of turgidness, then you're never getting near that shiny trinket with a gold crown on top. We've [...]

Özil again inspirational in dispatching of Everton

Well now, none of us truly believed that a game at home against Everton, did we? I mean this is The Arsenal, we never make it easy for ourselves, so we were always going to have a bit of nail biting that needed to be done.  It was a cagey affair from the off. From [...]

Arsenal and Arsène’s ineptitude could spell the end for Champions league qualification

That, last night, was a disgrace.  Everything was wrong about yesterday. The mangers decision to play Ospina, the lethargy in the team performance, the slow build up, all of it was appalling and I hope the players are having a serious word with themselves today.  Before a goal was even scored, my colleagues for the [...]

Effervescent Alexis secures Arsenal the points

Having not had the chance to even watch a scrap of yesterday's highlights, I don't exactly feel best placed to comment on yesterday's performance, but hangover aside I shall persevere regardless. Apologies for any brevity caused by my lack of knowledge on the game. I did follow it via the Arseblog live blog, as well [...]
