So, we're done with this frigging pointless friendlies and, as suspected Gareth Southgate kept Declan Rice on the pitch for the full 96 minutes last night. I flicked on and awatched about 10 minutes of the first half as I was cooking to see Pickford have a howler, then I heard about Lewis Dunk's howler, [...]

Big one tonight lads and lasses. It's a second leg Champions League tie against FC Porto and Arsenal have a one goal deficit that they need to overcome if there is to be more Champions League football played at The Emirates this season. Mikel Arteta and his players know exactly what is needed and they [...]

Refereeing transparency is good, but there are still too many questions unanswered

Morning folks - we all good? Or are you one of the many people slightly irritated by the 'Refs mic'd up' content Sky Sports pushed out last night featuring refereeing chief Howard Webb and, oddly, Michael Owen? On the Owen stuff, I'm not sure i've ever seen any kind of tactical insight worth him being [...]

A broken rules system in football

On last night's Same Old Arsenal podcast we had a fair bit of time dedicated to the refereeing from Monday night and, of course, most people in the chatroom and ourselves shared a level of frustration with the way some of the decisions played out. I'm not going to pick at a wound that will [...]

Arsenal squeeze past Palace with little help from referees as usual

You know football is back when you look at the heart rate monitor and see that because of your elevated beats per minute, you've been fat burning on a Monday night from about 9pm onwards, despite sitting on your sofa. Specifically, you know you're an Arsenal fan who knows that football is back because as [...]

The easiest 1-0 Arsenal ever had

That win against Leicester yesterday felt like one of the most dominant 1-0 victories you are ever likely to witness. If you just look at it from a scoreline perspective you'd probably think that it was a gritty, nervy, hard-fought and difficult win away from home, grinding out the three points and getting the hell [...]

Unai’s back, fixtures are changed and Gabby J is nothing to worry about for The Arsenal

Morning folks, welcome to Tuesday and whilst it's not exactly Arsenal related, it appears as though Aston Villa are getting a little bit of an Arsenal connection as their next manager, as Unai Emery has been confirmed as their new appointment from Villareal. It's an interesting appointment and not one I would have expected and [...]

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 [...]

Palace no pushover as Arsenal face pressure tonight

If any Arsenal fan was expecting to get any kind of good news from both Everton or Newcastle yesterday and feeling confident after Saturday's 'fun' results, then they were brought back down to earth yesterday, as West Ham overcame an Everton side who with every passing week look more terrible, making our defeat to them [...]
