Not sure how long today's ramblings will be, to be honest with you, because it feels like the inevitable has inevitably become inevitable after finding out about The Scum's defeat to City yesterday. I didn't watch the game, I'm not interested in knowing the details, I checked at halftime and then towards the end and [...]

The countdown commences and yesterday it was the opportunity for both managers to take to their respective press rooms to respond to questions from the press. As usual Arteta didn't really give up much on the team news and approach, but you wouldn't really ecpect him to because: He hasn't done that all season anyway. [...]

Not having The Arsenal on this weekend meant a jeopardy-free weekend in terms of how I was feeling when looking at both Premier League and FA Cup games, but despite that, there were still a few preferred outcomes that I was looking for.

Last night after I'd had my dinner I quickly checked my phone to see the Scum v West Ham score. It was about 20 minutes in and I saw that they had bagged one early so I put my phone down and tucked in to some festive TV. "I'm not watching the media love in of [...]

As I said on last night's Same Old Arsenal podcast, the one word that keeps ringing through my head both yesterday and this morning: Frustration. I'm frustrated at the performance. I'm frustrated at the injuries. I'm frustrated at the silly concession of our goals. I'm frustrated at the media narrative about how awesome this Postecoglou [...]

I had a stinking hangover yesterday after a company all-day conference on Thursday and so wasn't quite in the right frame of mind to do anything, let alone blog, but I'm back and feeling refershed this morning and what a good job too, because there is so much to talk about ahead of the North [...]

If you were to not watch the game but ask an Arsenal fan what would constitute an absolutely horrendous night's work in the Toilet Bowl arena, they would probably include any of the following: Early goal conceded Silly unnecessary goal or penalty conceded Red card to an Arsenal player Big defeat that could have an [...]
