Match day for The Arsenal! Alright, it is only the Community Shield and ok, it’s Liverpool. But a match day is a match day and this is one in which I don’t have the usual nerves or fear of what a result will do to our season. That’s because, frankly, it doesn’t matter. As Arteta [...]

Howdy folks and a happy matchday to thee. It’s another Sunday game for us but it’s time to get ‘up for the cup’ as we face off against Sheffield United in our 697th away match in a row... This was not a happy stomping ground earlier in the season and in fact our record there [...]

Winning the cup: formation, Welbeck and finding Auba

Cup final Sunday. I must admit to you that I do prefer it when it lands on a Saturday and is in May, because it's a much more pleasurable experience than having to be layered up in February. But let's not look a gift horse in the mouth, eh? After all, at least we're once [...]

Hoping Arsene is thinking three

Morning folks, how you doing, on this cup final weekend? I have a little scratchy throat problem going on which, in prep for a final in which I intend to completely decimate my voice from songs from before I've even arrived at the ground tomorrow, isn't exactly a good sign. What isn't also a good [...]

Form, team news and Wembley streak (which is tosh)

An early presser yesterday from the manager meant that we got some juicy updates on Arsenal a little earlier than the standard time but, let's be honest we're all so content starved following a great win last weekend and relative radio silence, that the Arsenal internet community was desperate to get something ahead of the [...]

The horrible permutations of today’s game; the expectation of tomorrow’s

Happy Saturday Gooners. It's FA Cup weekend but as seems to be par for the course these days, we don't play until Sunday. I suppose we'd better get used to it because next season unless something drastic happens in the Premier League, we'll be seeing a lot less Saturday football and a lot more Sunday [...]

A win-win for me and Arsenal? But let's just win.

Today's game is a win-win for me I feel. I normally get really wound up before any Arsenal game. Cold hands and feet as my circulatory system begins to re-route blood to my vital organs, set about by a feeling of unease that instinctively my body has told me that there is danger. When Arsenal [...]

Googling for hope, lucky pants and the FA Cup final: a Gooners strife

We football fans are a curious breed, aren't we?  I find myself today thinking about superstition. I'm not a superstitious person myself. I have no problem walking over three drains, I'll never salute a magpie, nor will stepping underneath a window cleaners ladder straddling a path cause me to deviate. Yet when it comes to [...]
