At just before the hour mark I looked up to the big screen behind me yesterday and saw that with two thirds of the game gone, we were labouring, with Palace in the ascendency. And I hoped for a change. The set up wasn’t working. Crystal Palace we’re pressing across the pitch in an organised [...]

A week of 'R n R' in Spain this past seven days and having also decided that the international break was an opportunity to step away from the blog in the mornings, I find myself rejuvenated and excited for what feels like 'Part III' of Arsenal's season. In Part I we experienced the lows, the [...]

Captains are club custodians – that’s it – learn from Arsenal, England

Honestly, have you ever seen as much fuss being made, as the whole 'Wayne Rooney dropped' saga that's being played out in the media. I don't remember any other captain getting the same level of treatment and attention when they were no longer England captain. It's just, well, weird if you ask me. He's 30 [...]

With another day to go before we line up against Chelski, today is all about looking at others and praying for results to go our way. Most of my family on my Dad's side are West Ham fans, so is my brother, so they've always kind of been my 'second team' if there could be [...]

Today is the very definition of 'muggy', with my clothes sticking to me and general uncomfortableness being the feeling for today it seems. I also seemed to have stepped on to an artists impression of Victorian London, because there's fog everywhere, so all I need now is Sherlock Holmes to solve a crime for me [...]
