That was a lot of fun yesterday, wasn’t it? We wanted revenge, we came for revenge, we got revenge. There was no ‘desgracia’ yesterday at The Emirates, because an excellent Arsenal team dispatched a shaky Newcastle team, leaving the home fans once again in dreamland as chants of “who put the ball in the Geordie’s [...]

Morning folks and happy Thursday to you and yours. I flicked on the Villa/Chelsea game last night and watched about 20 minutes of it as I was doing other stuff in the house. What a weird two teams those two are, eh? Chelsea, who looked absolutely ridiculous at the weekend at home to Wolves and [...]

Happy matchday folks! Hope you're all good? Excited for The Arsenal finally being back today? I know I bloody am! It feels like it's been AGES! It's almost as if it's been worse than an international break, for some weird reason, as I recently pointed out here. But it's back, The Arsenal are back, there's [...]

Morning folks and welcome to Thursday, as we tick ever-closer towards that game against Palace for the 12.30pm kick off on Saturday lunchtime. I'd asked for a marginal gain of Everton and Palace going to extra time last night and whilst it was unfortunate that it never happened, the fact that Palace put out a strong [...]

Is it better for Arsenal to chase than lead?

Perhaps it is because we're in to this winter break period and that means a fair bit of introspection and over thinking, but when I was out on my morning run in the cold suburbs of West London this morning, I started thinking to myself about our current position in the league and started to [...]

The goals WILL come for Arsenal – here’s why…

Today we'll have Mikel Arteta's press conference ahead of the Liverpool game and he'll be asked about the game, injury updates, but also about the current profligacy in front of goal and how he overcomes it. My hope is that with a glint in his eye he comes out swinging. My hope is that he [...]

With Mikel Arteta not doing his press conference until tomorrow lunchtime, it's up to us to start doing ALL THE SPECULATIONS on the game we have on Sunday, which was of course ably delivered on the Same Old Arsenal Podcast with the two James' last night. James J went for a 1-0 scraper and I [...]

Ramsdale to Chelsea should be a ‘hell no’; Arteta played an impressively straight bat presser

I'm going to get straight in to the press conference Mikel Arteta held yesterday in a minute, but before I do that, I saw some noises yesterday about Chelsea potentially lining up a move for Aaron Ramsdale as a possible replacement for their current 'keeper Sanchez and I need to get this off me chest, [...]
