Morning folks - hope we're all good and in the festive Christmas spirit? Not least because at this time of the year the games come thick and fast and whilst there is obviously plenty of juggling that Arteta and his coaching staff need to contend with in the busy festive period, for us fans it's [...]

Before I talk about the game tonight, a word on FIFA, the most corrupt organisation I have ever seen, who yesterday confirmed that Saudi Arabia had won the rights to host the 2034 World Cup after nobody else bid for it. Nobody. Really. So one of the most prestigious tournaments on the planet, that generates [...]

What a way to start off a day - with bloody COVID. Well, at least Arsenal are away this weekend and so there is at least that up side that I'm not going to miss going to a game this weekend. It's scuppers a few socialising plans I have but such is life. I move [...]

I'm going to let you 'in behind the curtain' a little here and level with you, these words were written yesterday (Saturday), as I knew that I would be rather hungover and probably in no mood to sit at my computer and tap away at the keyboard for 20 minutes whilst trying to prepare myself [...]

Another matchday for our boys and it's Europa League action tonight to take centre stage of our minds. I think the mindset of Arsenal fans I follow online is so fascinating with this one, you know, because there seems to be a big split between whether or not we 'go for it' and play the [...]

Morning folks and welcome to match day. Hope we're all good? Inexplicably and completely without any intention, I grabbed the first football shirt that I could find in my wardrobe last night to wear today for work (desk jockey who can work from home, so I pretty much wear what I want when I'm not [...]

Matchday it is and I have to tell you, rather than the usual trepidation I feel ahead of a massive game, I am more excited for this one. Honestly, I really am! I think it is because - as I've said all week - this is priority number three on our list and regardless of [...]

Morning morning Gooners, hope you’re all feeling fan-dabby-dozy on this here Thursday morn? Todays blog is coming to you from inside a BA aircraft, as we take a wee short trip up to Northumberland for The Management’s family birthday dinner on Saturday night. Annoyingly, it means that I can’t make my way up to the [...]

Good morning morning, from a wonderfully sunny Maldives, which is roasting hot too as well as being stunningly beautiful. With all this beauty around me there’s clearly only one thing on my mind, which is: I wonder whether Emile Smith Rowe is fit enough to start this evening? You can take the Gooner out of [...]
