We won the Emirates Cup! Arteta has done it again! Of course I'm being a bit flippant and, unlike Richarlison, you could see when Martin Odegaard lifted the trophy last night by the way he looked so sheepish that this is hardly the 'big prize' that we were after, but I suppose a win is [...]

But yesterday's 3-1 defeat to Liverpool brought back the other, more frustrating part to his game, which is the mindless stupidity that he sometimes delivers. Firstly the [...]

The Arteta rumours appear to be hotting up. More and more media sources are reporting it and I think more and more of us are accepting that it's likely to happen. By and large I think most of us will accept it, get behind Micky and pray he gets off to a good start, but [...]
