Morning folks (just). Provocative title from me today, perhaps, but let me explain my workings. I do want to get to some of the things Mikel Arteta said yesterday in his press conference ahead of the Liverpool game, but before that I thought I'd share something that I was pondering this morning as I was [...]

It's oh-so-quiet in Arsenal right now. Well, not the whole of the land, because of course the Arsenal Women played last night and sadly got a little beat up by Barcelona Women 4-1 on their home turf. Bit of a shame but I guess there are five more Champions League Group games to go and [...]

The perfect non-Arsenal football weekend

If you could map out a football weekend this season in which Arsenal don’t play, but you can have a thoroughly enjoyable time, well this weekend has so far been it. Leicester lost on Friday. Chelski drew yesterday. But the biggest ‘tick’ of the weekend was Liverpool being spanked 3-0 by Watford. It means no [...]

It was a fair few years ago now that our Head of Academy Development (of variation of job title thereof) coined the phrase 'automatisms' in an interview when talking about the little partnerships and bits that 'click' within a component parts of a team, but that's what has me thinking this morning.

I want to taste the glory of Premier League success

I really hope that Per Mertesacker hasn't been taking PR lessons from Djourou or Denilson, because as I flicked across to Arsenal.com to see what was going on, I saw two articles featuring him in the aftermath of the Bayern defeat. Can't they all just go into media lock down? I like it when that [...]

Being realistic, but at least we've got our hope back

I know what you're thinking. Stop it. Don't do it to yourself. Stay realistic. You and I both know it won't happen. It can't happen.Can it? No, definitely not, regardless of how Moneychester City keep seeming to be willing to let us get the tiniest glimmer by losing or drawing games they should be winning.
