I told you I hated North London derbies. Yesterday was no exception. Worry before, nerves during, and in the case of yesterday's result it was disappointment after. The disappointment isn't because we completely outplayed a Tottenham team who don't concede many, but more that we didn't show our potential in a big game at home [...]

Gabriel’s woes leave us short, but I took positives from yesterday too

Everything seemed to be going so well yesterday, didn't it? Right up until that moment when Gabriel flim-flammed his leg by twisting his ankle and having to be carried off on a stretcher. It's all so very...well...Arsenal, isn't it? Had Monreal got injured, we'd have all have been gutted, but Gibbs could have stepped in. [...]

North London Derby day: Fearing the high press and fragile confidence

So here we are folks. A day I've been dreading for just under a week. The North London Derby. To say I'm not confident is an understatement.  We have no form. We have injuries. Some of the players have admitted they lack a bit of self belief at the moment. And we're up against a [...]

Shambolic Arsenal look to have given up on glory

Today's thoughts are coming with an opening paragraph disclaimer: I am not going to be nice about the team or the manager today. I have been stewing on yesterday's result since the final whistle went and where sometimes time can be a healer and cause me to try to be a little bit more objective, [...]

It's Election Day here in the UK and with most of the country can't honestly tell the difference between the parties duking it out, the winner of this popularity contest will probably be the person with the greatest personality.  Arsène Wenger for President people. It's quiet on the Arsenal front. Quieter than a fox in [...]

On the face of it, with the other results which all went in our favour this weekend barring Moneychester City, a draw against the eventual champions isn't the worst result in the world. However, as I find myself composing my thoughts the morning after the game, I can't help but be somewhat frustrated with the [...]
