I think I've said this before, but I do like going to the League Cup games, because to me they represent an Arsenal match with less pressure and worry than a usual league game. Or FA Cup game. Or Champions League match. It's an opportunity to see a few of the rotated players in action [...]

Reading draw kind; let’s all appreciate Arsène’s legacy today

Last night's League Cup games passed off without too much incident, with United, City and those Tiny Totts progressing, to set up a series of mouthwatering reserve games between most of the bigger clubs left in the competition. Except us. We've got Reading at home, which you'd expect us to win and if the tickets [...]

Making life hard, but doing the job. Just.

Well we don't half make life hard for ourselves, don't we? I mean this was a Reading team who were 18th in the Championship, with a season of inconsistent performances, but very little to play for other than this game and so I suppose this was always going to be a little bit more difficult [...]

Arsenal cup keyword tagging: concentration and non-complacency

If I was to try to to do the keyword tagging and search engine optmisation of the Arsenal team manifested in physical form today, the one word I would lace throughout any team talk or mindset or thoughts going through each players mind would be: concentration, non-complacency. These are the two things that we must [...]

Confidence, concentration and waiting

It's nearly here folks, time is almost upon us and although it's not the FA Cup final but the seminar Wembley, I'm still mega excited. Imagine what I'll be like tomorrow when it actually comes around to kick off?We have already had the prologue from Arsène; possibly eager to cocoon the players in a hotel [...]

Reading, Milner and Walcott

It's the waiting that kills ya, I'll tell ya that much, because this working week has already dragged and it's only Wednesday.With no Arsenal on during midweek, the footballing options were limited to listening in on how the Championship is going, versus enduring the Champions League. With no Arsenal representation there, there's no way I'd [...]

Rocastle remembered; ticketing shambles

I don't know who angered the gods yesterday, but Britain seems to have woken up to an angry Mother Nature, hell-bent on ruining haircuts and spraying plastic bags across roads today. It's got more bluster than Jose himself. Scary indeed.It was probably another Chelski fan sacrificing an innocent animals life, then eating the remains raw, [...]
