It's all quiet on the Arsenal front, as you'd expect given the time of the year, so I decided this morning to have a poke around the official website and see what's been cooking. And wouldn't you just know it, I missed the noises about Martin Odegaard being awarded our player of the season. And [...]

And so the Champions League run for The Arsenal comes to an end. Not with a bang, but sadly with a bit of a whimper, as Bayern saw out a tense affair in Munich by beating us 1-0 with that second half headed goal by Kimmich. It was a momentary lapse of concentration from our [...]

Season-defining game for Arsenal against Bayern tonight?

It's the big one today and potentially a season-defining one, although I really wish that it wasn't, because I do worry what might happen if we go out tonight. That's a very real possibility, because: We do not have an amazing pedigree in Europe. We have a pretty pants record against Bayern. We've just come [...]

Arsenal PTSD

I know it's a bit of a provocative title, but sometimes needs must, boys and girls, because it just feels like where I'm at right now. It's now two days since we lost to Villa and that sobering and numbing feeling from that defeat is still gnawing away me. This wasn't where we were supposed [...]

Arsenal’s togetherness and fixture play out is looking good

Happy Thursday folks. Hope you're all recovered from the emosh of Tuesday night's Champions League encounter? One thing that I didn't touch on yesterday when I was still pretty raging, was how the tie is so finely balanced, so I thought I'd jot down some initial thoughts on that now. I do think the impact of [...]

Uncharacteristic Arsenal mistakes leave Bayern tie in the balance

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 [...]

Arsenal must remain patient and resolute – this is still Bayern

Here we are boys and girls. The big one tonight. It's Bayern Munich at the Emirates and as soon as the draw was made a few weeks back, we all collectively took an intake of breath as Arsenal fans, because we all know the history of playing them in this competition. It ain't great. 12 [...]

Prepping for Bayern whilst admiring the Premier League table

Morning folks and happy Monday to you and yours. We got an unexpected bit of good news yesterday, didn't we, eh? Honestly when I saw Liverpool go one up in the first half against an injury-hit and out of form Man United, I was tempted to just turn the TV off and go and do [...]

It had to be Bayern and Kane, didn’t it?

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 [...]
