In yesterday's blog I wrote about how I wanted Arsenal to lay down a marker in anticipation for next season. I referenced the first win of the Invincibles run, which was an end of season 6-1 hammering of Southampton and I said that I hoped that the lads would go out there and deliver a [...]

Make this Wolves game the start of something special for next season

Here we are folks - the final match day of the 2022/23 season. The expectations pivoted at some point from 'just get the Champions League spot' to 'become champions' and as such, today feels like a slightly sadder day than I was hoping it would be. But it is going to be a gloriously sunny [...]

So the final press conference of the season was done yesterday, coinciding with the launch of the new home kit for next season, in which the club released a bunch of new social media and press about it to generate plenty of online chatter. On the kit, personally, I might give it a miss next [...]

Should Arteta experiment for the final two games?

Still feeling it a little bit after the game on Sunday. How about you? Even the catharsis of doing the pod last night hasn't helped to get me over the defeat to Brighton. I said on the pod that my football hangover cure was to avoid social media for a bit and that I did, [...]

Arsenal ‘exceed expectations’ as Part One of Premier League ends

Yes it is a truncated season. Yes it is only 14 games. Yes we are up against a financially doped nation state who will probably end up winning the league. But by gum, I'm one happy Arsenal fan this morning, because my team are top of the league and will be right up until we [...]

Arsenal must start fast and exploit the wings against Wolves

Morning all! Back in Blighty after just over two weeks in the States and after a mammoth sleep to try to recover from jet lag, I've woken up this morning to that familiar feeling of butterflies in my stomach ahead of an Arsenal game. It's weird because I've known I'll be back home, watching the [...]

Liverpool’s perceived vulnerability and Arsenal’s Neto pursuit

Well now, I just wasn't expecting to tune in for the end of the United v Liverpool game to see that Man United can actually play with aggression and pride. I thought those values had been stuffed away in an old locker somewhere in the ground, never to return. Yet I tuned in with about [...]

Who’s leading this Arsenal team on the pitch?

It was a shame that Wolves couldn't at least muster a draw against West Ham yesterday, but if I'm going to look at the up side, it means a bit more daylight between us and them, with us five points clear of Wolves with two games in hand. West Ham knocked us out of fifth [...]

Arsenal’s run in does not make us favourites

It's a watching brief for us Gooners this weekend, as our game against the scummy False-Positive-Victims-FC Liverpool is postponed until mid March with their involvement in the League Cup. Part of me is quite pleased about that right now, because it means no stress of being worried about what Arsenal do, about dropping points, etc. [...]

Reliving the drama from Arsenal’s last-gasp winner against Wolves

Hey hey people, how are we all feeling? Good? I know I am! And we all know why. Because there is nothing better than a last minute winner in stoppage time. Wowsers, what a rush that was on the whistle, eh? I let out such a guttural yell that my throat went in to spasm. [...]
