Ok folks, we clearly have a wee bit of an issue now, because for something like the fourth game in a row I saw an Arsenal side who didn't really click at all. And it's starting to worry me.  Middlesbrough at home, Sunderland away for the most part (until we turned the after burners on [...]

I really hope the team are riding high today after Wednesday's North London Derby victory. Today is the last of our back-to-back-to-back-to-back away games and a win today feels like it could be really splendid, don't you know.  A win today means we go into the midweek game on another high and then if we [...]

Welcome to Friday. I don't know about you, but it's a week that certainly has dragged for me. Is it because there is no football on? Is that what it is? No football, plus no real mega exciting news to speak of, equals slow-diddly-oweness. I guess there was some football on Wednesday, but I was [...]

I'm going to resist the urge to vent towards the pathetic nature of the FA's charge of Jack Wilshere, for getting closer to the fans by singing songs, or the over sanitisation of modern day football and footballers as a result. Instead, I'm going to plough on with my thoughts on how this season's defence [...]

Swansea preview: negate a high press and keep an eye out wide

Liverpool's draw with Chelski mathematically secured the top four for us yesterday, but on a day where QPR were supposed to be giving it the last hurrah by at least holding Momeychester City to a draw at he Etihad, I was expecting better than a 6-0 thrashing. For us, in terms of trying to get [...]

Santi the quarterback dominates Boro

Arsenal are a funny old team, eh? After labouring in the North London Derby, then huffing and puffing against a Leicester team with bodies behind the ball, they faced a confident Middlesbrough team and simply swotted them aside yesterday. I have to hold my hands up and admit I didn't see that coming. I assumed [...]
