Unai Emery’s Red Army ready to back Arsenal’s new manager.

Hector Bellerin – Breaking The Mould: a true Arsenal pioneer

Hector Bellerin – the pioneer A neat traditional side-parting echoing a time gone, a conforming throwback to the George Graham days – and whatever you do, don’t forget those black boots.  Hector Bellerin certainly doesn’t subscribe to any of the above.

This submission came in a week after the game but was written in a train back to Scotland after our loss at the Etihad At the time of writing we are on the train somewhere in the midst of “up north”, in darkness, on the way back to Scotland where I live as an exiled […]

On the train home to London at the moment before Brighton at home tomorrow. Then it’s the international break going into what hopefully won’t be the usually melancholic winter of inconsistency and collapse.. we live in hope.
