I hate North London Derby Day – don’t make it worse Arsenal

It's the worst day in the footballing calendar for me personally, today is, as we travel away to Sh*ite Hart Lane to face that horrible lot round the corner in the North London Derby. I've always hated this fixture. Nerves, bragging rights, the fear of defeat and having to face all of the idiots at [...]

Arteta won’t rise to the bait ahead of the NLD

Press conferences always give a little bit of a nugget of info about the upcoming game, but the press don't usually use it to gain some kind of insight into how the clubs might tactically set up, instead using it as an opportunity to stoke the fires of possible discontent and rivalry between managers. So [...]

Pochettino’s exit interesting to Arsenal in more ways than one…

Welly, welly, welly. Looks like that 'orrible lot blinked first out of the underperforming teams this season and with rather a lot of swiftness, have turned around a Pochettino exit and a Mourinho arrival in the space of less than 12 hours. Normally I don't bother taking about them much but there's a few things [...]

Feel good factor back at Arsenal – earlier than I thought

Later one from me today on account with a plethora of work-related calls starting from 7am, but the burning need to splurge Arsenal-related thinking's on to my usual daily vehicle remains as strong as ever. So as I head in to the office this mid morning, I'm still somewhat basking in the glow of the [...]

Big Per, Arsène, they don’t get ‘marginal gains’

In an effort to full integrate with the Arsène Wenger regime, Big Per has spoken in the wake of yet another avoidable defeat, saying that the team mustn't listen to what others say and only look at themselves after a performance like Saturday's. Hmm. Now where have I heard that before? Oh yes, it feels [...]

Arsenal must overcome an Old Trafford psychological barrier

I don't know whether it's because it's early in the morning and I'm still tired, having had a few jars in the city last night and not returning home until 1am, but as I write this pre match preview blog I don't feel as nervous as I usually do about today's away trip to Old [...]

Arsène: don’t gamble, just win

As expected, Arsène addressed the media ahead of this weekend on Thursday rather than Friday, with the team travelling oop norf today at some stage. No doubt Alexis will be with them, having told Le Boss that he's ok via text. Ahh texting, remember that? The thing that we all used to do before Whatsapp, [...]

Happy Friday one and all and it's a day closer to the old Saturday showdown against the most horrific excuse for a football team tomorrow, those racists from Chelsea, oh what a joy. More on the unspeakable evil that will descend upon North London when the team, management and detestable fans visit The Emirates tomorrow. [...]

New voyeur arrives and Some thoughts on Jack

It's amazing what little actually goes on, football-wise, in the summer months and. Now that the number of games in the Euros is reduced to four to be played tonight, tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday.  Yesterday was almost completely wiped out for me through illness, as I slept for most of the day, but it was [...]
