Wellety, wellety, wellety. Welly, welly, welly. Wellington, wellington, wellington. It appears as though the rules around Financial Fair Play that we all thought were largely irrelevant are, in fact, looked and and reviewed by the Premier League. Yesterday's announcement that Man City have allegedly breached 101 different Premier League rules - from failing to disclose [...]

Time to stop the media excuses and appreciate the Arsenal

Morning Gooners, how we all doing today then? How we all feeling? I'm feeling pretty good, although I have to admit to a fair bit of frustration today, which is of course English media related. Honestly, have you ever seen a club with so many people prepared to defend whatever they do and find excuses [...]

The good vibes just keep on coming this season and yesterday evening, under the fading light of the October sky, The Arsenal knocked down another one of those media narratives that had plagued us in recent years: "Can't beat the truly top teams like Liverpool or Man City" Oh yes we can. Oh yes we [...]

Liverpool the sternest test for Arsenal so far

I feel a little weird about today. Last weekend before the game I was a bundle of nerves. It was the North London derby, I feared the 'smash and grab' from the Scum, I wondered whether the media narrative would be overflowing with joy if they beat us; it felt like there was so much [...]

Liverpool’s perceived vulnerability and Arsenal’s Neto pursuit

Well now, I just wasn't expecting to tune in for the end of the United v Liverpool game to see that Man United can actually play with aggression and pride. I thought those values had been stuffed away in an old locker somewhere in the ground, never to return. Yet I tuned in with about [...]

We were where Liverpool were – will we be there again?

Morning folks. Hope you’re all good? Did you watch the Champions League final last night? I didn’t. Last thing I wanted to see was a massive build up about how super amazing Liverpool are and how they’re the greatest side to have ever walked the planet. And yet having suffered defeat yesterday, their season has [...]

Will the season finale will have one more uncomfortable twist for The Arsenal?

Morning Gooners - y'all alreet? I didn't watch the Champions League Semi Final between Liverpool and Emery's Villareal, but it seems as though even Mr European Cup Competition himself - Unai Emery - could overcome this Liverpool team, who are juggernaughting their way to trophies at the moment, it seems. They better bloody do the [...]

Arsenal need 72 points for Top Four – here’s how…

Having to do today’s ramblings via my Smartphone unfortunately, so going back to pre-pandemic ways, which means the high probabilities of typos and other such predictive text nonsense. So please bear with. But what’s been going through my mind today has been - unsurprisingly perhaps - the ‘permutations’ of the remainder of this season. I [...]
