World Cup week is upon us and that means we have something else we'll be able to talk about for a whole month, enabling us to detach ourselves from the drivel that cones from the click-bait nonsense that the media want to serve up to us like the ad revenue hungry so-and-so's that they are. [...]

United lost yesterday and we all got to engage in a bit of schadenfreude at their expense, until it became clear that City have a nice and easy tie against Bristol City to pick up probably at least one of the minimum two trophies they should win this season, at which point it became less [...]

‘Say nice things about Rosicky’ Week

By |2017-05-19T20:08:23+01:00May 24th, 2016|Arsenal FC, gooners, Gunners, History, injuries|0 Comments

Has there ever been a more obvious potential 'Axis of Evil' than Jose Mourinho and Man United? A team who have had success for decades, who have also built up a cynical side and who's corporate juggernaut status and commercial emphasis, with the Jack the Ripper of modern day football?  So it seems that may [...]

A new midfield style to be forged in final three games?

By |2017-05-19T20:08:27+01:00April 29th, 2016|Arsenal, injuries, midfield, Tactics|0 Comments

Yesterday Arsene gave an update on the players available at the weekend and wouldn't you know it, for the first time since the end of last season, everyone suddenly seems fully fit. Isn't that just the most Arsenal news of all time? Three matches before the end of the season, when everything is done and [...]

Hope remains, players return, but there should be no sentiment – we need to be flawless

Righto, this is a new month, it's a new me, one in which I have now formally given up alcohol until May and at a time in which my other habit - The Arsenal - has driven me to even more drink than usual, I'll have to find a way of numbing the pain of [...]

A quintessentially English afternoon of football: The FA Cup and Arsenal

There's something comforting about a good, old-fashioned, 3pm FA Cup tie, isn't there? It's quintessentially English, I find, with bad weather normally thrown in to the mix too. We've certainly ticked all of today's boxes, as well as a a game against a lower league opposition in Burnley, who will probably be a Premier League [...]

The delicious news of Coquelin, Rosicky and yes, even Welbeck

Yesterday Arsène delivered his injury news update via the official site and, quite deliciously, it included confirmation that everyone bar Santi and Jack are back in training. So that's Rosicky, Welbeck and ahead of schedule our midfield destroyed Francis Coquelin. I can't tell you how pleased I am. Well, I can, via this blog, but [...]
