So it seems we are now playing the waiting game when it comes to our Boxing Day fixture. Two games were called off yesterday, including Wolves’ match against Leeds and that means Wolves will have had a full nine days rest between their 0-0 draw against Chelski on 19th and when they play us. Hardly [...]

Well now, isn't it nice to start the week run up to Christmas knowing that whatever happens, The Arsenal will be fourth on Christmas Day. We may not stay there, we may fall away and have a shocker of a Christmas period between now and the new year, but as it stands we can smile [...]

Morning all, how we all doing then, eh? I have a bit of a headache this Monday morning. It's not the kind of selection headache Mikel Arteta seems to have these days (ba-dum, tsch!) but an actual headache caused by sleep depravation on Saturday evening following a rather unhealthy amount of white and red wine [...]

The big question on everybody's lips this morning: Will Freddie be in charge to oversee a glorious victory over Leeds United in the FA Cup? Of course I'm being a little flippant, especially given that we can't beat any team at the moment, let alone one winning every week. So the idea that we'll steamroll [...]

Still stewing on Arsenal?

I don't know if it's because there's no football on this weekend meaning that we've had to endure that unpalatable taste of a poor performance for longer than usual, or whether it's the fact that it's the last working week before Christmas, but it really has dragged for me. It's self-inflicted though. Whenever Arsenal lose [...]

Christmas points – how many would you take for Arsenal?

Monday's do suck sometimes, don't they? Usually when you don't feel at your fighting best and after a lovely relaxing evening with The Management, complete with a bit of booze and Christmas turkey and crackers, I find myself a little achey and tired as I begin today's travel to work. Gawd only knows how footballers [...]
